FOR THE ROWERS KEEP ON ROWING

.

MEL STUART, DIRECTOR OF ‘WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY’ PASSED AWAY LAST NIGHT AT AGE 83, OF CANCER. SINCE MY MAGE BLOG PIC IS A DIRECT REFERENCE TO THIS LEGENDARY MOVIE, I FEEL COMPELLED TO DEDICATE THIS POST TO MEL’S LEGENDARY WORK. YOU KNOW YOU WERE FREAKED OUT AS KID BY THE INFAMOUS PSYCHEDELIC BOAT SCENE…TIME TO RELIVE YOUR YOUTH (UNLESS YOU WERE BORN IN THE 90′S AND YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHO GENE WILDER IS).

Round the world and home again
That’s the sailor’s way
Faster faster, faster faster

There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing

Is it raining, is it snowing
Is a hurricane a-blowing

Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of Hell a-glowing
Is the grisly reaper mowing

Yes, the danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing

MAKING THE INTRO

.

Came across this little article on the making of the intro of “The girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, that was released a little while back. Although I read all the novels by Stieg Larsson and watched the Swedish version of “The girl with the Dragon Tattoo” I felt like an English-language remake was somewhat unnecessary. That being said, I was stunned at the intro of this movie. It’s not often a director takes the time to go to such lengths for an introduction (accept maybe James Bond). Take a few minutes to check out the making behind this intro, and an interview with Tim Miller of Blur Studio, director David Fincher and poster designer Neil Kellerhouse.

Patagonia / / Last light

.

There is an undeniable magic in alpenglow. The final seconds of a day’s light that give mountains impossible texture and life before falling into shadow. Stephan Drake, Forrest Shearer and Johan Jonsson go in search of big lines in Haines, Alaska.
