We post a fair amount of montages here on /Film, but this one’s extra special. Back in 1993, well before the days of Final Cut Pro, a 19-year-old Edgar Wright holed himself up in an editing suite for several weekends to put together this montage, “Gun Fetish.” The clips are pulled from VHS tapes, which explains the low quality. Even so, it’s apparent that Wright has an excellent sense of rhythm and timing, as well as real affection for the films he’d go on to reference and parody in work like Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Watch it after the jump. Be forewarned — the video is, as Wright puts it, “a little NSFW and spoiler heavy.”
In January, Nakatomiinc released an awesome print by Tim Doyle, which was an homage to Bill Murray‘s many great roles. The print sold out fast, and doyle began work on the second in the series: Robert De Niro Times Six which takes a look at the many characters that Robert has played over his career: Godfather 2, Taxi Driver, Deer Hunter, Raging Bull, The Untouchables, and Jackie Brown. The print is extremely widescreen (as seen after the jump), 6 inches high by 36 wide, 4 colors, printed by D and L. Signed and Numbered. Nakatomiinc is selling two different editions, a regular edition (shown after the jump) for $30 (only 150 prints) and a Glow in the dark Blue Variant (shown above) for $50 (only 25 prints).
21-year old UK artist Olly Moss is probably best known for his popular t-shirt designs which have virally spread across the interwebs. You might recognize some of his designs below.
Olly has decided to create a series of movie posters reinterpreted in a kinda minimalistic post modern German-ism style. Six more posters (The Dark Knight, Die Hard, Deer Hunter, Rain Man, The Great Dictator, and American History X) after the jump.
