    • The Birds - Movie Title Redesign

      This is a modern redesign of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds." I was very interested in one's evil perception of the birds. My goal was to set the mood for the classic film and aim for a horror/creepy vibe. I employed bold colors (red, black, and tan) with integrated grunge textures to imply dirtiness. Anticipation was another main feeling I wanted to illustrate. This was achieved by slow motion shots overlaid with quick movements. Ultimately this will keep the audience’s attention while symbolizing a bird’s natural, quick and unpredictable movements. Conceptually, I really wanted to convey that the birds organized themselves in a purely sinister way. I thought about how I could do this, and ultimately decided it would be interesting to show images or footage of a bird, but made up of many smaller birds. I wanted to convey the birds in a "larger than life" sense. Overlaying aerial footage inside the birds also presented another interesting visual concept – that they see all and know all.

      • Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design

        Take a look at the printing of the first book to be published on one of the greatest American designers of the 20th century, who was as famous for his work in film as for his corporate identity and graphic work. Saul Bass (1920-1996) created some of the most compelling images of American postwar visual culture. Having extended the remit of graphic design to include film titles, he went on to transform the genre. His best-known works include a series of unforgettable posters and title sequences for films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Otto Preminger's The Man with the Golden Arm and Anatomy of a Murder. He also created some of the most famous logos and corporate identity campaigns of the century, including those for major companies such as AT&T, Quaker Oats, United Airlines and Minolta.

          • The Journeys of Martin Scorsese


            from Steven Benedict / Added

            Published on Dec 2, 2013 This is a short video-essay examining Martin Scorsese's films. It shows how Scorsese has used cinema's grammar and vocabulary to expand its expressive force. Irrespective of the many genres within which he has worked, Scorsese harnesses such disciplines as colour, black & white, aspect-ratios, tracking shots, slow-motion, freeze-frame and whip-pans, not to mention voice-over, music and jump-cuts to fully realise cinema's expressive force. Scorsese uses these to present his one overriding theme.

            • Who Directed the Shower Scene in PSYCHO?

              FULL ARTICLE: http://vashivisuals.com/directed-shower-scene-psycho/ In 1960, Alfred Hitchcock shocked the viewers by killing the lead actress only 30 minutes into PSYCHO. The scene took 7 days to film in December of 1959. Of the 77 camera set-ups captured that week...only 51 shots were used in the final edit. The shower scene is a master class in filmmaking and displayed an advanced style in both editing and visual style. What I find interesting about the shower scene is how 'un-Hitchcockian' the angles and editing are compared to almost all his other work. This is no doubt due to the contributions of legendary graphic artist Saul Bass who created the 48 storyboards for this scene. What's even more interesting is that both Alfred_Hitchcock and Saul Bass claimed to have directed this scene.
