Saul Bass: Beautiful Things

“I want everything we do to be beautiful. I don’t give a damn whether the client understands that that’s worth anything, or that the client thinks it’s worth anything, or whether it is worth anything. It’s worth it to me. It’s the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares.” – Saul Bass

noun \ˈsü-pər-kət\ — A fast-paced montage of short video clips that obsessively isolates a single element from its source, usually a word, phrase, or cliche from film and TV.

They are intriguing, brilliantly obsessive, often surprising and fun.

Andy Baio’s Supercut.org collects every known example of the video remix meme. The latest, Three Point Landing, from San Francisco-based animator, Duncan Robson, is the 400th hundred to be uploaded.

Spike Lee: The Dolly Shot

I saw this today. I like it. I enjoy Spike Lee’s movies, give or take. I’m a big fan of Do The Right Thing, Mo’ Better Blues and Jungle Fever. And Malcolm X. And When the Levees Broke is a hugely important work. Lee is a divisive filmmaker but whether you enjoy his films or not, it’s hard to deny he is a very talented director. With a wonderful eye. And ear. And he’s always challenging. Here’s a compilation of dolly shots from his films.  With a nice soundtrack from Cymande, too.
