I've become a bit of a fan of the current 'minimal' film poster craze. Maybe it's because the simple two-tone posters remind me of growing up in the seventies. Anyway, I thought I'd try my hand at this style using my favorite film franchise as the subject. Here's my first attempt.
The Jerry Goldsmith main title to this movie is just fantastic. Bloody genius.

Sydney-Canon 550d 18-135 lens from Pete Mullins on Vimeo.
A little sequence I cut together from a recent trip to Sydney with my Darling Wife. We decided to purchase the Canon 550D after reading so many positive reviews about it on the net. Darling Wife wanted to do more photography and I wanted a camera that could shoot HD. Sure, if we had more cash, it would have been great to get the 7D or hey...the 5D, but after reading up on the specs for the 550d (T2i in the US) it really did seem like great value for money.
I think it is obvious that an investment in a camera stabilizer will be next. Still, the camera makes even low rent amateur cinematographers like me look almost good. I didn't perform any grading or software stabilization on this footage.

Another John Carter of Mars pic.
I actually started this picture before the Dejah Thoris pic. I kinda got sick of it and put it to one side. I finally got around to finishing it the other night. Yep, against all logic I'm looking forward to the new film....sigh...
The quick sketches are experiments in Illustrator. It's a bit like Photoshop...and yet, annoyingly not.
The last illo is a concept from a top secret project that will probably never see the light of day.
