Less Is More of the Day: Entrants in the Philips-sponsored constrained cinema competition “Tell It Your Way” were restricted to six lines of dialogue: “What is that?,” “It’s a unicorn,” “Never seen one up close before,” “Beautiful,” “Get away, get away,” and “I’m sorry.”

Keegan Wilcox’s Porcelain Unicorn, hand-picked as the Grand Prize Winner by director Ridley Scott, is making the rounds again today, and it’s certainly worth a second (and third, and fourth, and tenth) glance.

Less Is More short film

sacrificeformymadness:

Christopher Nolan “I’m on the set of Batman 3, I don’t know what it’s actually called, and I’m approving Christian Bale’s new bat-suit. It’s got some added details, but I’m not paying too much attention. Then I see the suit for Robin, and he’s played by Zac Efron. Then I approve Christina Hendricks’ Poison Ivy costume, and Michael Chiklis’ Mr. Freeze costume. Then I look out over this massive set we’ve constructed, and it’s a giant ice rink populated by these armored hockey players. And I realize: I’m not me, I’m Joel Schumacher, and I’m making Batman &amp; Robin. That’s when I woke up, called Warner Bros. and quit the franchise.” 

*chuckles*

Dream Home of the Day: Bangerter Homes, a Utah-based housing developer, is hard at work on the construction of a life-size replica of Carl and Ellie’s house from the Disney-Pixar film Up as part of the Herriman Towne Center’s 2011 Parade of Homes.
“I was just watching the movie, and thought, ‘We build houses kind of like that’,” said Blair Bangerter, co-owner of the home-building company with his two brothers. Bangerter told the Salt Lake Tribune that he and his brothers sought and received the approval of Disney Entertainment Group to recreate the now-iconic residence.
The trio had to modify some parts to accommodate real-world physics, and took a few liberties with the rooms not shown in the movie, but the rest is as true to the animated version as can be.
All told, the house (which naturally comes with its own home theater) covers 2,800 square feet, and sports a remarkably affordable price tag of $399k.
