A BRUSH WITH FILM

Some of the following 'brushes with film" (design stories) came to me, while crawling around under my father's pool table, many more while getting trounced by some of the world's best film designers at that same table. These "film design supermen", spun tall tales, sipped Senor Lustau-Brandy and smoked Pantagas Shorts (for the non cheroot devotee these were cigars not underwear ;-) At last count I believe between them all, they had to  their credit won over 30 Academy Awards for best Art Direction. As respectable "tall tales", I promise the stories have been un-apologetically and geometrical embellished upon (by them), although rooted in fact. 

UNDER THE POOL TABLE

As film design draws from all of the arts; artists, architects, and designers of all disciplines are welcome to join in. May our stories merit a footnote in design oral history. More importantly may they be worthy enough to lodge in the memories of tomorrow's young designers and artists. 

So in the grand tradition of the Cinemgundi Club let us begin.
