The Film Before The Film: A documentary of the opening sequence

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
We love a good opening sequence, so much so that we could have stopped watching The Darjeeling Limited after 3 minutes and that Kinks song. Opening credits are important, whether Woody Allen's simple text treatments or Hitchcock's more ominous, playful openers. "THE FILM before THE FILM is a short documentary that traces the evolution of title design through the history of film. This short film was a research project at the BTK (Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule) that takes a look at pioneers like Saul Bass, Maurice Binder and Kyle Cooper by showing the transitions from early film credits to the inclusion of digital techniques, a resurgence of old-school style, and filmmakers' love of typography in space."

Quentin Tarantino Gets the Penguin Classics-esque look from Sharm Murugiah

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Graphic artist and illustrator Sharm Murugiah scores multiple points with us with this project. He has taken the films/screenplays of Quentin Tarantino, and recreated their overall themes as Penguin style book covers, in a similar vein to Penguin's style of re-publishing the classics. All nine of Tarantino's major feature films are featured... 

Mad Men Season 6 Starts April 7, and...

Juxtapoz // Saturday, January 26, 2013
... We want to take this opportunity to mention that we should cherish the art direction and creative promotion that this show has given the world over the past half decade. Even if you don't watch Mad Men, and could care less, there aren't many television shows that have ever paid attention to the details of marketing and stylzing itself to an audience. This is an art project. Look at these promo shots for Season 6, which begins on April 7, 2013 on AMC? Well. Done.

Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" Trailer

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 25, 2013
Yep, that is James Franco, holding a gun to the head of Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson's head. And yes, this is a movie starring said actors plus Selena Gomez of Bieber fame. And yes this could be a Disney lineup circa 2004. And no, Disney would not approve. This is Harmony Korine's newest feature, Spring Breakers, and it puts the bugged out back in... bugged out. Watch the trailer...

Video: Hate Mail from Mr. Bingo

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 06, 2013
The premise is perfect: Mr. Bingo, the London based illustrator and in our opinion, comic, will, for a small fee, send the recipient of your choice an abusive, illustrated message on the back of a vintage postcard. Culminated in a fantastic book, Hate Mail was recently published by Penguin books, and now Crane.tv has created a nice bvideo profile on the artist. Hate can be fun.

Preview Video: Sam Flores "Lion and the Lamb" @ FIFTY24SF Gallery

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 03, 2012
We are very excited for the highly anticipated Sam Flores solo show, Lion and the Lamb, opening at FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco on 12/12/12. Because Flores' last show opened in Egypt days before a major revolution erupted on the streets of Cairo in 2011, this is the first time many people have seen a solo from the Bay Area artist.

Alexa Meade and Sheila Vand's "Milk: what will you make of me?"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 27, 2012
A collaboration of body painter extraordinaire Alexa Meade and performance artist Sheila Vand, involving the before-mentioned body painting work before Vand lies in a pool of milk. Both in still and video images, this is a particularly interesting collaboration, where the subject comes to life in a fluid "still-life." If that doesn't make sense, click after the jump, and see the video.
