Il Capo

This is an excerpt on NOWNESS from the documentary, Il Capo (The Chief) by Italian filmmaker Yuri Ancarani. The film follows a marble quarry boss who uses simple hand gestures to guide his crew. The topic is fascinating, but what strikes me the most about the excerpt is the wonderful aesthetics created by mixing the beautiful landscape, excellent cinematography, and a super minimal sound design. All you hear are the sounds of the machinery and the massive marble blocks being extracted. It’s all wonderful and worth a look.

Here’s a fun little project titled Cinematypography by talented UK student (and author of September Industry) David Corti. Cinematypography is a collection of 70 film titles renamed to coincide with a typeface. David reached out to the creative community for the new film titles. Participants include Build, KentLyons, Neue, SampsonMay, This Studio, Un.titled and yours truly.

Unfortunately the poster is already sold out since only 50 were printed.
