There is actually some context for these pictures, though perhaps it's funnier if you don't read it; these are a series of 8 images I quickly knocked together to test my new project idea out. They're based on the story of famous Korean film director Shin Sang-ok, who in 1978 was kidnapped along with his ex-wife from the South to the communist north.

Shin Sang-ok's story of his kidnapping on the whole is a bit suspect, though doubtless he was imprisoned and any fibs on his part were, at worst, protection from South Korea's harsh laws against aiding the DPRK. In any case, Pulgasari is the most well known of Shin Sang-ok's forced films there, and undoubtedly the worst. It's a Kaiju film with communist overtones; ripe for parody.

Metaphor alert: Pulgasari in these images is actually Kim Jong-il. Also, once again, I apologise for the Korean; it's more for the aesthetics than for actually making sense.

So they're photographing my stuff at uni...still. Never mind. Anyway, here's another snack, similar to before. The film next week is a personal favourite, Koyaanisqatsi, so I was all like "mate, I have to do this one", and then I did.

I don't think I'll be doing any more film posters for a while. Well, there is this one film I'm doing soon, in like, 2 months. I'll put it up when it's done. In the meantime: enjoy.

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

Over at the uni, we've got the Prince Charles Film Club doing its weekly thang. To keep you guys entertained while I try and juggle these deadlines, and before I show you some real work, here's the poster I designed for next week's showing.

Apologies to my mangling of the Thai language. It was just so pretty I couldn't not include it.
