SUBURBICON: TROUBLE IN PARADISE

Image
SUBURBICON is based on the research by Oscar Award winner, George Clooney, from a 1957 documentary film “Crisis in Levittown”, a true story of what happened when William and Daisy Meyers became the first African American family to move in to Levittown, Pennsylvania.

Clooney recalled a script the Academy Award winning, Coen Brothers, sent to him back in 1999 called “Suburbicon.” It was a comedy/thriller with similar themes to Fargo and Burn After Reading: hapless characters making really bad decisions. Together with the producers, they thought that it seems a good time for a film that feels angry; combining the existing Suburbicon script and setting it in Levittown during the week the Meyer’s moved in.

Suburbicon tells the story of America’s emerging middle class, in the decade following the Second World War, moving to the suburbs: idyllic, affordable homes in planned communities. For many, the American Dream of owning a home was becoming a reality for the first time. It is …

Vincent van Gogh’s Life and Death Come Alive to Cinema Art thru His Oil Paintings

In producing the movie, “Loving Vincent”, every one of the 65,00 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 123 professional oil painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent Studios in Poland and Greece to be part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent van Gogh’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.


No other artist has attracted more legends than Vincent van Gogh. Variously labeled a martyr, a lustful satyr, a madman, a genius and a lay about, the real Vincent is at once revealed in his letters, and obscured by myth and time. Van Gogh himself said in his last letters, “We cannot speak other than by our paintings”. We take him at his word and let the paintings tell the real story of a great visual artist.
”Loving Vincent” was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is an interaction of the performance of the actors playing the art…
