Star Wars posters : Design at its best

I'm still in my Christmas break but when i find something nice and interesting, i try to post it. Have a look at these three gorgeously designed Star Wars posters above and below. They were designed by Artist Olly Moss - who apparently is not part of Lucas Film - and are printed in a limited edition of 400 for a price of $50 each. Released two days ago, i'm sorry to say they are already out of stock!

While we are in a kind of arty-sci-fi topic here is another jewel: Modern Times is a 3min50sec short movie directed by Richard Mountney, "made with no money, just a little time and a lot of passion" as they say on their site. It's a tribute to both Charlie Chaplin and Stanley Kubrick. As a matter of fact the tribute to Kubrick's 2001 is even more obvious. Frankly, this short movie is a real little jewel and you better don't miss to watch the video below. And for those of you who wish to know how it's possible to realize such a thing without (almost) any money, you'll find also the making-of video.

Enjoy, and have all a great Christmas!
