Stolen From Cinema

Lacheln in Dan Richters’ alien wear, adapted from various “alien babe” sci fi films, with a dash of “E.T.” I haven’t seen the latter film in 15 years but I always think about it for some reason.

It’s so tempting to borrow liberally from movies. With high production values and highly trained cinematographers, movies are chockful of amazingly inspiring moments- and it doesn’t hurt that movies are the most popular form of art around. When we steal, we should steal big!

I get many of my cues from films, and because the circumstances/ personalities/ players/ effects/ etc. are so different my images don’t look exactly like the original inspiration. I think the most boring cinema-influenced images are the ones that are a direct parroting of the movie.  Still- interesting visuals are interesting visuals, and it’s worth keeping a notepad alongside oneself when watching a good movie.
