Film the Blanks Poster Series

Posted by Jon M

“Hell, you might just be the best damn girl in Texas.”

“Each and every man under my command owes me one hundred Nazi scalps. And I want my scalps. And all y’all will git me one hundred Nazi scalps, taken from the heads of one hundred dead Nazis. Or you will die tryin’.”

“Look Dave, I can see you’re really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.”

“A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then, that it is the year 10191. The known universe is ruled by the Padisha Emperor Shaddam IV, my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the Universe is the spice melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. “

“I’m scared, Fif. You know why? It’s that rat circus out there. I’m beginning to enjoy it.”

“It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now to give it the perfect ending was a bit of the old Ludwig van.”

“You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny.”

“Can you keep a secret? I’m trying to organize a prison break. I need like, what, an accomplice. We have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out?”

Film the Blanks, by designer John Taylor, is a series based on famous film posters, with the information deconstructed to a minimal blocks of colors. Can you guess the films above?

Anyone in the visual creative field knows the OFFF titles are the pinnacle of pieces to work on. This year I feel like it was brought to a whole new level. The duo of Ash Thorp and Anthony Scott Burns brings us another incredible short film. Their last collaboration was on Manifold, directed by Burns, which was one of my favorite pieces last year. The visuals in this piece are arresting to say the least, from the aerials, to the dark visitor to the german shepherd and the haunting suspense. Excellent work from the entire crew involved in this piece.

I’d like to write more, talk about how well shot this, post even more stills from the film, but I’d rather not spoil the journey for you. I really hope these two continue projects like this, this is pure inspiration. Now, let’s dim the lights, enter fullscreen and get headphones deep.

Being someone that loves to doodle all day and create little simple worlds from my imagination, Wilmer Murillo‘s illustration work stuck out to me instantly. Wilmer is a Honduran graphic artist and illustrator currently living in Taiwan. He cites ancient cultures, mysticism, and sci-fi as some of his influences and I think that really comes across in his art. It’s like a Mayan culture was transported to another planet where the only language is downtempo electronic music. Wilmer’s colorful take on central American art is a breath of fresh air. Check out his website for more and you can even purchase his incredible illustrations on Society6.

P.S. Check out this new track from some of my Nashville/LA friends Wild Cub & Madi Diaz.

Sam Smith is one of my favorite designers and an all around great guy. Living in Nashville he produces many posters for the independent theatre The Belcourt. I’m always impressed with Sam’s ability to use simple shapes and warm colors. His art is anachronistic, moving and always makes me take a second look. Check out more work on his website and don’t forget to take a look at the numerous covers and packages he has created for The Criterion Collection.
