Pinterest

Posted: November 29th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Inspiration | No Comments »

I hereby invite You to my Pinterest-feed where you can find a collection of things that I find inspiring and/or useful in one way or another. Perhaps you will be able to see and recognize glimpses of things that inspire and influence me in my personal and professional work and most importantly perhaps find some inspiration yourself. I've been pretty bad at collecting this sort of material here on my blog, much due to it being a tedious process using the wordpress system, so I was really happy when I found out about Pinterest.

Le Mépris by Jean-Luc Godard

Posted: February 26th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Inspiration, Movies | 3 Comments »

"One of the great masterpieces of the 20th century, a supreme synthesis of form, content and performance. Arguably the most beautiful too, with its found locations, sets, colour, lighting, music, decor and costume. The straightforward elegance of Godard's shooting masks a story of great complexity and formal rupture, but underneath the philosophy, semiotics and allusion is a portrait of marriage and its decline. The tension between icy irony and resigned emotion results in Godard's most perversely moving film. It is also very funny, which is too little remembered."

Interesting TED talks

Posted: February 25th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Inspiration | No Comments »

I found the two following TED conference talks very inspiring and interesting. The first movie covers a talk by Ed Ulbrich about how Digital Domain created the artifical face for Benjamin Button, a movie by David Fincher. There is tons more makin-of material on the web covering this topic, especially on digital domain website. The other movie showcases a talk by Sir Ken Robinson which highlights the topic of creativity and education and how the one affects the other. Very interesting!

Yankee Gal

Have a look at this wonderful little short film, created by four french students, Antoine Perez, Céline Desrumaux, Francois Pons and Gary Levesque. It was made during a course at Supinfocom animation school in 2008. The finished piece looks like a million bucks to me! I love the style and cinematography of it. For more info. go to their collective website.

Successfully established mood and atmosphere in this commercial for adidas. The Celebrate campaign was developed at Sid Lee, Montreal, by creative director Kristian Manchester, art director Laura Kim, copywriter Ron Wilfred Macdonald, agency producers Claudia Roy and Magali Loiselle. Filming was shot by director Nima Nourizadeh, via Partizan, Los Angeles and Radke Film Group, Los Angeles, with executive producers Sheila Stepanek (Partizan) and Miriana DiQuinzio (Radke), producers Steve Wheeler (Partizan) and Albert Botha (Radke), director of photography Christopher Probst, production designer/art director Eric Beauchamp. Editors were Gary Knight, Peep Show and Jimmy Lee, Montreal. Telecine was done by colorist Tom Poole at Riot NY. Post production was done at Method Studios, New York. Music is the Pilooski remix of “Beggin’”, by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Sound was designed at Boogie Studio, Montreal, Quebec. Music was licensed by Massive Music, LA, NY and Amsterdam.

Would love to be at that party...

It's clearly a feelgood movie, evoking some nice thoughts in my mind..leaving that warm and fuzzy feeling, much like the following film (also for adidas) directed by the up-and coming director David Dawoodi whom I've had the pleasure of working with.
