Mini Sculptures of 16 Great Film Directors: King Cuts

I wish I could afford even one of these Mike Leavitt sculptures. His King Cuts are 18″ tall sculptures made from wood and polymer clay and impressively carved into the likenesses of his 16 favorite film directors of all time (an excellent selection). Humorously and accurately outfitted with props from their films, he has created 16, several of which are still available for purchase. Read more

Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola’s Prada Candy L’Eau And A Look Behind The Scenes.

To promote Prada’s latest fragrance, Candy de L’Eau, Directors Wes Andersen and Roman Coppola have created a real tale told in three online episodes starring Léa Seydoux. The short film is available as one complete video, but I want you to see it as it was intended.

Strikingly similar to Truffaut’s Jules and Jim, the short film tells the story of a starlet caught between the affections of two young men, while plugging the new fragrance at the end of each episode.

Episode 1:

Episode 2:

Episode 3:

Behind the Scenes:

Actress Lea Seydoux appears in the print ads and in the promotional pieces for the fragrance (shown below) as well as in the film.

The new fragrance is a trinity of white musks, benzoin and caramel, heightened by notes of citrus and oriental florals.
