I did notice that many of these pieces were created by Pixar illustrators, animators and directors. The work is absolutely stunning and I just love the concept.
A book featuring all of the pieces should be available on September 6th.
The Archive is a great (and very well done) little documentary on Paul Mawhinney, owner of the world's largest record collection. You may need to dry a tear or two.
The Batmobile from Batman Returns movie is being auctioned off at the 38th annual Kruse International Auction, which will be held on Labor Day weekend (August 28, 29, 30, 31, September 1 & 2 at the 480 acre Kruse Auction Park) in Auburn, Indiana. The car is # 3 of 5 Batmobiles actually used in the BATMAN RETURNS MOVIE.
Keep in mind that Batmobiles have sold for as much as $550,000 in the past, which means owning one is definitely attainable.
My favorite video director Mark Romanek has a brand new site.
Keeping with our morning theme of bands east of the Atlantic, here's the new video from Glasgow's favorite sons: Something Anything. Is it just me, or is Fran getting more and more gray with each album? Who cares. 40 is the new 20.
Ode To J. Smith is out 9/29.
Kevin Kelley from Film School Rejects got a call from Skywalker Ranch to preview the new Clone Wars film. After his mild heart attack, he was able to take a TON of great photos of the infamous ranch. Lucky for us. Enjoy.

Flash Of Genius. I remember my Dad telling me about this story back in the day. Not only am I a Kinnear fanatic, I'm also a "feel-good-touchy-feely-good guy wins in the end" film fanatic. Consider me there. Hopefully I won't be alone.
I was really excited to see the teaser trailer for Lemmy: The Movie yesterday. Documentaries are starting to pop up everywhere, and I think that's a great thing (Oasis: Lord Don't Slow Me Down - brilliant!). I especially appreciate the fact that this was done in time so all parties involved could watch and enjoy before the run is over.
Oh, and if I need to explain to you who Lemmy and Motorhead are, you're at the wrong blog.
Note: This trailer is rated PG-13 due to some language. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Our bro Chris Sims has been busy churning out some stunning videos lately. We teamed up with Chris on the Undying video in 2006 and the dude doesn't play around. Quality in every way.
The video for The Living End's new single "White Noise" incorporated our concept and album artwork perfectly. We usually cringe when directors ask us for files, but this was done brilliantly. Directed by Grant Marshall.
Video: "White Noise"
Endeavor Media. These kids have been cooking up some ill videos as of late and have directed many for bands that we've worked with. QUALITY work.
