Inspired by graphic designers like Olly Moss and the countless knockoffs, I began a series of minimalist posters. There’s no thematic connection between the works, only that they are inspired by some of my favorite films.

This one is based on imagery from Trainspotting. Order a print from my Zazzle store!

Shot Stitch #4 – “True Detective” (2014)

If you’re like me, you were too wrapped up in last weeks episode of True Detective to fully grasp how long that last shot was. Well, it was about 6 minutes long. You can watch it here if you don’t remember.
I was pretty stoked to make a stitch for this and tried to have it up ASAP. The nature of the shot makes it near impossible to stitch completely into one image and I was faced with some new challenges. For starters, there was a LOT of forward movement in this shot, which is a total Buzz-Killington for a stitch. I worked around this by distorting a lot of perspectives, stretching and skewing certain frames to match others.
Another challenge was the camera spins around Matthew McConaughey at one point. This changes the action from left-to-right to right-to-left and totally disrupts a linear, 2D stitched image. I compensated for this by kinda breaking the stitch… see for yourself… I swear it was the least disruptive solution.

The image is so large, I made a video:

 

And here’s a looping GIF of just the indoor sequence:

Shot Stitch #3 – Oldboy (2003)

oldboyscene_BOTH_2016
Oh, the “Hammer” scene. Classic. If you haven’t seen Park Chan-Wook’s 2003 Oldboy, check it out. This isn’t much of a spoiler, but in one scene the main character fights off (I counted 17) bad guys with nothing but a hammer. The 2.5 minute fight scene is one long take.

To capture the scope of the fight, I decided to do TWO stitches. One for “Before” the fight, starting with the very first frame of the shot. The second stitch shows the aftermath.

Before:
