Someone directed me to these images, they are a gift that was given to the author of a remarkable site, full of really interesting bits and pieces. It is a 're-telling' of Moby Dick, the amount of work that went into the piece is stunning, I can't imagine the number of hours it must have taken. You'll have to scroll through a few pages to find the post (around April 08), and the story behind the piece. I've put some other images of the piece in the extended section.
I love a good graphic design blog and The Nonist is one of the most interesting I have come across lately. Very cool graphics and thoughtful commentary are key characteristics. You can download a few things, including an Old Testament Activity Book which features games and colouring outlines based on key OT scenarios--funny and reflective. Why is it called The Nonist? You'll have to check it out for yourself in order to get an answer to that one.
I am a big fan of film music, and have even dabbled a bit here and there doing music for film in a few different capacities. In fact, I have a chapter on film music in Rob Johnston's book, Reframing Theology and Film, which draws together a number of thinkers doing stuff around various aspects of film. Music in film is a bit like the Holy Spirit, often the overlooked member of the trinity. Meaning in film doesn't simply come from dialog or narrative but from a trinity of meaning makers: story, visuals, music, each of which contribute to the overall meaning-making process. I would argue that music plays an incredibly important role in film and always has, even in the 'silent' film era, it was only the film itself that was devoid of sound, most, if not all movies, were accompanied by music, organs, pianos, chamber orchestras, all supported the celluloid tales and gave life to what was happening on screen. All that to say I came across a great blog called The Playlist, which is dedicated to music in film. It's a cool site with great posts and views. The first post I came across was a bit of a rant about the tendency to use music created for other movies in new film trailers, you've probably seen a few yourself. Hence the title of my post, which is the name of a piece of music by Clint Mansell which was created for The Fountain but which now shows up in the new Will Smith movie trailer for I Am Legend. This tactic is something I personally find a bit irritating, even though I think I understand the rationale behind it--economics, ease, proven emotional arc etc. anyway, if film music interest you this site will be a frequent place to visit.
