Twisted Path


After a long post production time the psychological thriller Twisted Path, shot between Italy and California by filmmaker Federico Rivia, is finally completed. Federico was born in Italy and moved to Hollywood to work as Visual Effects Artist for blockbuster movies like Spider-Man 1 and 2, Mission Impossible 2, 2012 etc. Federico and I met over ten years ago. We worked together for a couple of years at Ubik Visual Effects, high-end post-production house based in Milan, and remained friends since then.Twisted Path is Federico's first feature film. I was lucky to watch it and I must say I really enjoyed it. I definitively look forward to see Federico's next movie.The movie is currently available on Amazon in Blu-ray format. Hopefully will be available in Italy soon.

"SB&A"


132 pages.
Size: 225 x 297mm
Hardcover
In Japanese+English

It's just arrived from Japan(Mitsue...Thank you so much!)...IT'S MINE!


This is a long-waited reprint of the valuable collection of materials left by Saul Bass (1920-1996), the leading designer of the 20th century America. The essence of Saul Bass including his representative CI's, graphical works, and movie titles, are collected into one book.
Saul Bass's creative work had gone beyond the borders of graphic design. Bass is one of the first designers to expand his activities into the fields of images and animation. Bass created many masterpieces of movie posters. He is also well-known for bringing a completely new style to the title designs of movies, which until then were merely lists of names of the directors and actors. Bass's designs for movies such as "West Side Story," "Psycho," "Vertigo," "Bonjour Tristesse," "The Man with the Gold Arm," and "North by Northwest" are, today, still full of refreshing surprises.
