Wikipedia states: “The movie will combine live action, suitmation, animatronics and CGI. The seven creatures will be actors in up to 275 centimetres tall suits made of foam, although it is expected that their faces will be computer-generated. The film’s target release date is October 3, 2008. Filming began in April of 2006 at Central City Studios in Melbourne, Australia. Some location filming happened in the Queensland rain forest early in 2007. Adam Keenan and John Nolan will be responsible for the animatronics. The film is currently in post-production.”
Really cool website by Miranda July for her book, No one belongs here more than you. But hey, someone really needs to give her some basic “auto-level” tip for Photoshop, haha. Some of you may know her work from the movie Me, You and Everyone we know.
Caught the Helvetica film tonight, good stuff overall I think. At first I was starting to think the movie was going to be a big stroke off to the font, but then was nice to see people like David Carson in the flick who opposed this ideology of only one supreme font. I myself have no attachments to the font, but do respect it and understand the old school ideas behind why it became popular. I don’t understand (nor care too) the new school passion for it though, today is a different time in my mind. Overall was a nice movie, had some nasty nerd moments that were a bit too much, but had many great moments that could be enjoyable for non-designers. Either way, id suggest most designers catch it to hear some great designers like Wim Crouwel and Matthew Carter drop some wisdom and history. On a side note, if anyone was at this Bangkok event, what the hell was up with that after the movie discussion. Was like watching a car wreck. Total garbage and nonsense!
