I'm Gagging.....

I'm in love with Paolo Roversi, and this little behind the scenes video detailing the making of his story in this month's W isn't helping me get over him....

soooo beautiful....I especially love the shot of the woman's back as she walks through a hedgemaze....It reminds me of a scene from Orlando (which I posted a clip of here a while back)
or the scene in Coppola's Dracula where Lucy is running around the hedges in her diaphanous red nightgown...

Melvin Sokolsky!

We went to see the legendary fashion/conceptual photographer Melvin Sokolsky speak at the National Arts Club last night. The dude is 78 years old, and still tack sharp. He showed a ton of images from his new book, appropriately called Archive, and talked candidly for over two hours. He could not stress enough how the "bubble images" had nothing to do with Photoshop, which seems obvious since they were shot in the 60's...BUT even after his 20 proclamations somebody raised their hand and asked if he used Photoshop on those images....(I was floored), and he just snapped into the fit of eye-rolling that is befitting such a lame question. are some pics of the event as well as some of his iconic images.

When an amazing art director I worked with approached me to help out with a new project he was working on involving elaborate specialized printing processes I was overjoyed at the opportunity to see what was possible. Well, I just received the preliminary copy of the book they produced and it blew my mind. Quantum along with Jeremy Bristol put together a hard cover embossed
book of my images using holographic materials, metallic inks, super-high gloss polymer materials, matte (almost powdery paper), and a bunch of other finishes that I have never even seen before.
I took some snapshots (which hardly do it justice)
You need to feel it to really get it...

You are such a classy philanthropist!!!

Bring out your classy philanthropic side by supporting an Independent film!
Donate over $100 dollars and you will get an associate producer's credit on the film!
Our friend and kick-ass DP, ZAK MULLIGAN is co-writing and directing, as well as DP-ing
this independent short film called I'm Not Me. They are trying to raise a very modest sum via a site called Kickstarter

You can go to the site, watch a preview (it looks fascinating already!) and read the synopsis and decide how much you are willing to help out (starting at $1). They are also offering an opportunity to appear as an extra in the film, so you can help some talented people out, work on your ascension to fame and glory as an actor, PLUS get a producer's credit....
They don't get the funding unless they reach their goal within 90 days, so please at least check it out....
