Sky Calvin And The World Of Tomorrow

I really need to get this book.
I totally loved this film back in 2005 and I loved the idea that it was one of the first films to be made entirely with computers and green screen technology which are all the rage these days. It was a true proof of concept that arose out of a small film that Kevin Conran created by using the same technology on his home computer.

The collection will provide a comprehensive gallery of Kevin Conran’s illustrations and designs, including incomplete and unpublished work never before seen by the public. Kevin Conran’s Art of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is the first official collection of such artwork. Sourced from his private collection, this book spans over 20 years of the movie’s unique illustrations and includes behind-the-scenes details on how the movie was conceived of, illustrated, approved (or rejected), and brought to life.

I love doing a post about this film because it allows me to tell my favorite story about it. I watched this trailer with a good friend of mine when we went to see Finding Nemo. After it was done she turned to me and said, "This is what it's like in your mind all the time isn't it?" It was the greatest thing anyone had ever said about me.

Butchy Angelina Jolie in an eye patch is what does it for me.

Oh and that fake accent. Really over the top.
