I came across this old 80′s video of a song that I have fond memories of called ‘All You Zombies’ by The Hooters. Big hair, everyone standing around playing instruments in a setting that has nothing to do with the song…so typical and corny. But hey, wouldn’t be the 80′s without it.
If you happen to be in Tampa, FL you will have the pleasure of seeing New York-based digital light artist Leo Villareal’s recent completion of ‘Sky’ on the south façade of the new Tampa Museum of Art, which features a dramatic 12,000-square-foot public art commission that illuminates the downtown core.
The exterior of the new museum features programmable LED lights, 45 feet high and 300 feet long, embedded within two-layers of perforated aluminum panels. In daylight, the museum’s façade creates a moiré-like pattern, and in darkness the LED light installation glows with Villarreal’s signature light-coded and hypnotic dance.

We see them every time we watch a film or animation and usually pay little attention. It’s the opening title sequence, where the film’s opening credits appear and the tone of the movie or animation are set. A lot of thought and hard work goes into these few minutes. The new animated series Archer is no exception.
Neal Holman who produced the sequence in about four days states ” My plan from the very start was to do an open using silhouettes in some form or fashion. Saul Bass and some later Saul Bass-esque opens, like Catch Me If You Can and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, were pretty heavy influences. Even the end sequence of The Incredibles. Anything that had that sort of deft blend of fun and action went into the pot.”
Here is a screenshot of the opening title sequence followed by a link to the clip, which pays homage to vintage espionage films.
