Trailer: Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
We had heard this film was in production, but forgot about it until yesterday when we saw a new trailer for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo." Looks like the French filmmaker is back to creating the more whimisical, creative, and surreal fantasy worlds of some of his best films (Eternal Sunshine, Science of Sleep). Remember when we did a photoshoot with our Petit Gondry a few years back to coincide with our interview with Grand Gondry? That was fun. Now watch the trailer...

What a way to wake up on this sunny Northern California morning... nothing says sunshine like some Hamburg, Germany-born psychedelia by Mati Klarwein. From his site, it mentions: "was born in Hamburg on the 9th of April 1932, to a Jewish architect father from Polish origins, and a German opera singer mother." The art genes worked out. More on his site.

Apparently The Dude Also Takes Photographs

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Aside from acting and writing books, the dude also takes photographs. Jeff Bridges gives us a unique view into the world he grew up in and from a perspective we rarely get to see: from an actor on set. Bridges uses a Widelux camera for most of the images because he says that it is the closest to what the human eye can see. "I think I have a perspective that not many people have. And I get to take advantage of all the strange sources of light on set."
