I came across this short article over at Esquire.com praising Avatar not for its groundbreaking visual experience, but for its cool 3D glasses. Just like this fellow at Esquire, I expected a little plastic package containing a flimsy super-thin cardboard pair of glasses that fall off if you tilt your head too much. Instead, we all looked more like an impossibly cool JFK chillin on a sail boat. I’ve seen Avatar (in 3D, you must see it in 3D) twice now and if you have not yet then I strongly suggest that you do. Not necessarily because the storyline is super compelling (the acting is pretty cheesy at times). Avatar, I believe, is a little snapshot (a preview, if you will) of the future of the movie theater experience. My buddies and I walked out of the theater discussing this very thing. I think that in the next year or earlier, we will all go to the movie theater, buy a ticket, pick up our 3D glasses (or bring our own), grab some Skittles, and head to our movie.
This is the blog for Inkdryer, which is the visual work of me, Chris Hendrixson. Click here to check out my work. What you see on this blog are things that I inspire me in my design projects. You will find a random mix of creativity collected from around the internet and beyond that I find moving, provocative, strange, interesting, or funny. Hopefully you will find them at least slightly as inspiring as I do, even if you are an accountant.
