Frame by Frame

Movies in Frames really makes me want to print out these movie stills and frame them for my wall. They can exist as photographs themselves and also tell a whole story. Plus, it seems like a pretty big challenge--how can you select single shots that are visually engaging themselves in addition to furthering a kind of narrative? Really cool project.

Some of them even make a movie look more intense than the movie actually is. Like this Movies in Frames version of Hook. Notice the lack of food-fight shot here. Of course, with the Beatles and Big Ben, it also makes Hook look really British.
