This is totally incredible. The classic Jonny Quest intro, re-created in painfully time-consuming stop-motion animation.  Roger D. Evans does the show proud.

More after the jump

Title Track from M83’s Score for “Oblivion”

In what is good news for literally the whole entire world, M83‘s Anthony Gonzalez provided the score for the Tom Cruise-starring sci-fi film Oblivion. The track “Oblivion”, features Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør. Anythony himself has confirmed via Twitter that it’s from the films End Credits.

According to Rolling Stone, Gonzalez collaborated with Joseph Trapanese on the soundtrack; Trapanese previously collaborated with Daft Punk on the soundtrack to Tron: Legacy. The soundtrack arrives April 9 via Back Lot Records. The film, directed by Joseph Kosinski, apparently pays homage to the science fiction films of the 1970s, which is just peachy. It will be released on April 19.

Feb 2013

I get a lot of inspiration from vintage pulp cartoons and sci-fi films from the 30’s—60’s, it drives a lot of what of the design choices of films and print work I do. I also love the people who nod to this bygone era of hope for the future, like Sky Captain director Kerry Conran. I recently came across this old Superman animated short from 1941 and couldn’t believe the quality and smoothness of the animation in it, on-par with some of ’80s greats like Akira. I can definitely see the similarities in the 1990’s Batman Animated Series to this original comic. The colour, lighting and futuristic technologies in this are just fantastic.

Fiji Vignettes

Vimeo’s Featured Videos is often the first place I’ll go when I’m looking for some kind of motion or video inspiration. Earlier in the week I came across this 3 part vignette by director Riley Blakeway of Taj Burrow while in Fiji. The footage is gorgeous, the location equally so, it doesn’t hurt that Riley had access to what I can only assume is a helicopter for some amazing shots.

“All of the surf vision was shot with the EX1.” says Blakeway, which is more than I was expecting from the Sony PMW-EX1. This was sorta the step before the Canon DSLRs came out and started trending, (5Ds and 7Ds mostly). The colour grading is perfect. The intros/outros were on super 8mm.

Cut Copy – Blink and You’ll Miss a Revolution

Just got this treasure in my inbox, the new Cut Copy video for “Blink and You’ll Miss a Revolution” was just released… right now! To quote the email:

The video was found in a rusty chest in an ancient grotto in Saint-Maximin, France, and from what archaeologists can ascertain from the hieroglyphic-like scribes inside the chest, it was directed by Emile Sornin, and produced by Jules de Chateleux at Division. Because of its age, it took a lot of time to unlock said chest.

I also see that they’re performing in Vancouver two days after the final PEAK Performance Project Showcase… so maybe I’ll have to stick around…

Cutting Edges

I’m happy to see Cutting Edges, curating these contemporary takes on vintage (found) imagery, featuring a new take on old design. Incidentally, I’ve come across some of these pieces on fffound before, I would love to get my hands on a copy of this tome for myself. With work by Jelle Martens, Anthony Zinonos, Eduardo Recife and more, the book is pure eye candy.

Favorite Pastime

A video & a few shots from a new San Diego-based line, Favorite Pastime. So far, there isn’t a whole lot to show for the line, which isn’t to say they lack the essentials. It’s short and sweet, almost minimal which is always something I can appreciate. Started by Mat Crossan and inspired by the nostalgia of care-free days of skating, surfing and generally being in the sun until the street lights came on, but updated for those of us who are old enough to not be called for dinner. I’m looking forward to more from this line.

Mark Ronson & The Business Intl.

I’ve been listening to this record on repeat for the last few months, so tight. Last night was the first time I really explored the iTunes LP of it that I got and watched the three music videos attached. JEALOUSY.
