Post-it Love: A short film

More cute post-it note based frippery, this is so twee it’s practically a Belle & Sebastian video:

My favourite film-y bits

Someone in the office is watching the title sequence to Catch Me If You Can and it has just reminded me of how incredible the animation is:

This also had me thinking about the end credits to Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events, also pretty special and made me stay right until the end when I saw it at the cinema:

There is a real art to creating animations like these, and the care and attention that has gone into these small, usually irrelevant parts of the movie making process really shines.

Just a random thought…


In Review: Frost/Nixon

Frost/Nixon

Whilst I don’t claim to have much interest in politics, and my knowledge of US politics is very limited to say the least, I left the cinema after Frost/Nixon knowing that I had just seen a very good film.

Perhaps it is the “real life” nature of the story, based on actual events. Maybe its the appealingly kitsch 70’s setting, or even the many intelligent humourous quips scattered throughout the film. Whichever way, I would highly recommend that people go and see Frost/Nixon even if, like me, they have little interest in politics.

Will it win an Oscar, of which it has been nominated for five? If it doesn’t we’ll surely see Oscargate…
