Black & White Renaissance


I discovered a link to a nice-looking trailer for the French film “Renaissance”. I’ve always liked black & white film so I’m partial by default (I even have a stash of it in the fridge for when I someday get around to filming something again).

I found this over on the CGChannel site last night where they make the obvious comparison to “Sin City” (which I blogged about when it was released – Link). Only this reminds me of Paul Gulacy‘s work.

Anyway, it’s worth seeing (Link). And check out the rest of the website as well by clicking on “Entrez Danz Le Site”. It does that irritating pop-open/maximize browser window thing, but the design is worth the bother imo.

{Quick edit: This is interesting. From the Paul Gulacy site (which I’ve never seen before):

Gulacy made his initial mark on the art world while at Marvel comics during the Kung Fu craze of the 1970’s with Master of Kung Fu. Gulacy’s work on that title inspired legendary film director Quentin Tarantino to say “Master of Kung Fu …hands down my favorite comic book.”

That maybe explains why Tarantino changed his mind about digital filmmaking after directing a segment of “Sin City”. Gulacy’s work has a fluid quality that’s captured in the film adaption of Miller’s comic.}
