Several of us here in Film/Video are fans of good design, especially when it pops on on film posters and DVD covers. If you are, too, I highly recommend checking out this post at On Five on the design process behind the covers for the Criterion Collection release of Jules Dassin’s Night and the City.
David Bordwell at the Hong Kong Film Festival. His first report is up on his blog, and more are promised. It’s always a fun read.
If you are anywhere in or near San Francisco tomorrow, I highly recommend taking in the San Francisco Film Society‘s Trapped in the Closet sing-a-long. The event promises to be “an exploration of R. Kelly’s artistic canon.” I wish I could be there.
