Ok,so the movie scene in yesterday’s blog post was Rebel Without a Cause. It was on AMC the other night and I recorded it so I could see how my opinion of this movie had changed after 50 years. I watched part of it and realized I couldn’t relate to the characters as I had as a youth. The three teenagers were from wealthy families and didn’t seem to lack physical comforts,they just had strange parents. I turned off the sound and watched it in fast forward mode and enjoyed the camera set-ups and art direction which was very creative. I also picked up on symbols I hadn’t noticed when I saw this movie as a teen-ager. I will share some of my thoughts tomorrow on the these symbols.

    I’m really enjoying this segment. What an interesting idea. What is it you look for in a potential painting from a film? Just something that catches the eye or something connected to meaning of the film for you? Looking forward to tomorrow’s post.

    Cool enough. Sometime, try the iconic James Dean with his feet propped up in his old truck from”Giant”. This sorta cubist mosaic works!

      Thanks Glenn.I think I’ll stay on the movie theme for a while. There is a lot to learn from movie art directors for illustrators and I think movie art directors learned a lot from illustrators in the past.
