bates motel

April 7, 2014 § 1 Comment


i think one of the reasons why i’m so infatuated with this show is because of the classic alfred hitchcock movie psycho. my dad introduced it to my sister and i so i vividly remember touring the original psycho home at universal studios as a kid. in my opinion i don’t think that this prequel could’ve been done any better. it definitely seems to have skewed my view on the original movie which is interesting.

i’m also fascinated with the set design. they tactfully add in contemporary pieces while at the same time keeping with the vintage originals. it’s not shown in any of these photos but i love the pretty hanging flower baskets outside each of the rooms. this little touch definitely reflects the true oregonian style as i haven’t noticed many other states doing this in the spring and summer seasons.

kinetic typography: saul bass

February 19, 2014 § 1 Comment

saul bass is a name that i distinctly remember studying back in college as he is credited as the first to use kinetic typography extensively in film. a revered graphic designer and filmmaker, he provided visual design in many of the opening title sequences for movies directed by alfred hitchcock and martin scorsese only to name a few. p.s. who’s excited for bates motel season two which starts on march 3rd?
