Stanley Kubrick, the Napoleon Film

Napoleon

Following on from the fantastic ‘The Stanley Kubrick Archives‘ comes Alison Castle and Christiane Kubrick’s ‘Stanley Kubrick, the Napoleon Film’. The book covers the two years of obsessive work Stanley put into his unrealised film on Napoleon Bonaparte which is often referred to as the greatest film he never made. There’s nothing on Taschen’s site about the release but it’s available for pre-order at Amazon for a shade under £300.

RjDj Shake

One further reason to get an iPhone. RjDj, an interactive music application that uses sensory input to generate and control the music you are listening to. The application uses ‘scene’s to define what you hear, these scenes react to audio input and/or input generated from the iPhone’s built in accelerometer and therefore reactively change what you’re listening to. On top of this there’s a built in recorder to record what you’re listening to. Sounds weird then check out Michael Breidenbruecker explaining the app.

Weird Fishes

Tobias Stretch’s winning stop-motion entry for Aniboom’s Radiohead animated music video contest. Looks like there was some tough competition with 900 storyboards submitted, but his entry for the track Weird Fishes is a worthy winner.

Wim Crouwel

  • There’s a great article over on the Creative Review blog about the reprinting of Wim Crouwel’s ‘Vormgevers’ poster and the process behind reproducing the artwork so that it matches the original ‘non-computer’ created design and all its imperfections. The reprinted poster is available from Blanka and looks fantastic.
  • Lego Wall-E as created by pixar animator Angus MacLane. Think Lego missed a trick here.
  • SoundCloud – Online audio platform designed for music professionals that’s come up with some clever ways of sending and receiving music.
