We watched this short video essay a week or so ago and found we were still thinking about it this morning, specifically this quote: "What Selznick sees as waste and excess becomes the essence of a different kind of cinema and sensibility, in which shots linger and veer off to include others, in which in-between moments seem to be essential, in which time and place seem more critical than plot or story."

Enjoy this striking music video directed by Mathieu Grimard. Titled LAMU featuring the musical talent of Montreal-based band Rivver, where individual stories are strung together seen through various façades. As described, “every person and every eye is shown behind a surface: glass, plastic, water, etc. It’s an outside-in view on all these characters.” Filmed from careful angles with a stunning view on each framed face, Grimard creates a surreal emotional dreamland that beautifully unifies and reflects off each other.

This is a film about font. Times New Roman was designed for The Times in 1931 and is one of the most recognised fonts in the world. Whether you like it or not, it is not a font to be ignored. The short is part of The Unquiet Film Series which celebrates the historical and cultural impact of The Times and The Sunday Times.

This is fun. Someone took the exact scenes of films that are used on various film posters and created GIFs of posters. It's only a matter of time until we can expect something similar on a billboard in the near future...

Occasionally here on the site we like to search out behind the scenes photos from the sets of some of our favorite directors and their films. Not too long ago we showed you Chewbacca's photos from the set of Star Wars and late last year we took a look at photos from Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. We hope you enjoy this morning's addition: behind the scene photos from Kubrick's sci-fi masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
