A Friday Find

A series of unique or bizarre film related photographs. Every Friday.

From the set of Lost In Translation. Via.

Youtube videos get old

I like these ads by Lola for Upload Cinema and they make me wonder what other clips they considered shooting. Found via Present Company.

Bright bright bright animals

Bright animal prints will always make me smile. And these, in particular, are all from designers worth following. Can you recommend some great designers or illustrators I should be following?

Top: I Love You California by Annie Galvin, who with Eric Rewitzer make up 3 Fish Studios in San Francisco. We just bought one of the bear prints because we love California too! (Though I do feel like the bear is cheating on Cali a little in this Oregon print.)

Middle: Owl Dress and Jumper by Romance Was Born and available at The Grand Social.

Bottom: Prints by Nicholas Girling who also sells as Printspace out of Melbourne.

A moment of inspiration

Sometimes, in internet land, you come across something you just can't put down - a photograph on tumblr without a credit, a song on a dodgy youtube clip made of cheesy stills that you play in a background tab the invisible bike lolcat and so on. Silly things on their own, that over time create a mental collage of what the internet means to us personally.

Then other times the internet affords us wisdom we might never have heard elsewhere, snippets of something that can change our lives.

One such thing for me is this post from Swiss Miss (I'm re-posting in full with genuine respect):

That one line 'I wish I would have embraced and trusted the entrepreneurial side in me earlier' has been on loop in my head every day for weeks now. It has inspired so much confidence in me to go out and achieve what I want to, and to take business risks even though I am not a business person 'by trade'. This is one moment of internet inspiration I needed to repost to remember forever. Thank you Tina Roth Eisenberg.

Ridley Scott the female action star's best friend?

In a Daily Beast interview, Ridley Scott talks of a Blade Runner sequel with a female lead and gives this impressive quote on his experience with female action leads in the past:

"I read with slightly raised eyebrows the surprise and the power about having a female lead instead of a male lead, and it refocused my awareness about what we’ve done. It was a calculated risk as well in a film that’s fundamentally a traditional “who’s going to be the last one standing in a big, dark house.” In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which was significantly frightening for me at that particular point cause I looked at it just prior to making Alien, that girl was still standing at the end covered in blood, but she’d survived rather than won. The difference with Ripley was that she had won and survived."

A moving number

I'm really loving by this poster for the 60th San Sebastian Film Festival, chosen from 1,307 proposals received from 443 designers.
