anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

font biter

Having seen Noah and the Whale's video for 5 years time I could not help think of the font Futura and Wes Anderson's films. Having looked at the video for 2 Bodies 1 Heart, Noah and The Whale are obviously keeping to the same theme as Anderson. They also appear to have the same cast and crew - visually branding the videos. However, it is unmistakably a Wes Anderson trait, although it works with Noah and the Whale's twee folk sound. Typographically, Anderson uses Futura (and altered versions of Futura) as his house font. Though it’s not as omnipresent in The Darjeeling Ltd as it has been in many of his past films (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums, The Life Acquatic), it does appear on some key elements such as the Louis Vuitton luggage insignia and many of the train amenitites.
