Animating Season: An Interview With The Animation Director Behind The WHO'S THAT GIRL Titles Sequence! Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 4.29.19 PM(Image via Warner Bros.)

As this piece argues, the titles sequence to Madonna's 1987 dud Who's That Girl (I'm aware many of her fans find it a fun movie) is the best part of the whole 90ish minutes.

Now, check out some of the back story, straight from the animation director who was in charge of the whole sequence, and who worked with the late artist Danile Melgarajo.

According to Ric Machin, his task was clear-cut:

My specific job was Animation Director. The soundtrack had already been selected by Warner Brothers — Madonna’s “Causing a Commotion” — and an Argentinian artist, Daniel Melgarejo, had been drafted in to help with concept sketches and the general style of the piece. After a week or so, I had a catchy song and a pile of unconnected drawings and the brief to turn it into a three-minute animated sequence.

Madonna was hands-off:

Apart from seeing the rough cut of the film, which they approved, and a fleeting visit to the twelfth floor of the Broadway studio, Madonna and James Foley left the entire project in my hands.

For A Lost Soldier Of Self-Expression: He Wrote The Book On Bernard Perlin Comments (0)

Bernard Perlin is an artist whose name is not as well-known as some of his so-called most intimate companions in the field of the arts, men like Aaron Copland, Christopher Isherwood, Truman Capote, Leonard Bernstein, Vincent Prince, Clifton Webb, Paul Cadmus and George Platt Lynes.

In the ravishing new Bruno Gmünder book One-Man Show: The Life and Art of Bernard Perlin, biographer (and visual curator) Michael Schreiber sets about correcting that oversight, cataloguing exhaustively the work produced by the artistic and sexual renegade, who died in 2014 at the ripe old age of 95.

Perlin got his big break creating U.S. propaganda during WWII, including the famous Let 'Em Have It war bonds ad depicted above. Screen Shot 2017-01-21 at 7.24.05 PMHis work went on to encapsulate a growing sexual tension via unique male nudes (some seen as props in Lynes images), unromantic portraiture, haunting still lifes.

To my amazement, I figured out that a Lynes image I own — depicting a nude man against a graffitied wall — was a collboration; the wall was by Perlin, and it looks both authentic and stylized.

From Schreiber's intro:

...Bernard Perlin was an inveterate explorer, one who reveled in pushing social, sexual, political, and creative boundaries. It's no wonder that critics of his art, while applauding individual works and even entire, small-scale one-man shows of his paintings, often complained that his body of work, when assessed as a whole, seemed to lack cohesion from one show to the next. Bernard shifted styles and themes often throughout his long career, making him truly difficult to categorize.

That shapeshifting quality leads to an incredibly rich book with surprises on every page.

The book is a stunning collection of the remarkable work of a gay man that is enhanced by interviews, unseen personal photos and Schreiber's love of his subect — which is something that makes any book of this nature indispensable.

The Gay '90s Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 9.03.48 PM(Images by Richard Renaldi)

Yet another gay photo project, this one museum-worthy.

Acclaimed photographer Richard Renaldi has released a photo book entitled Manhattan Sunday that chronicles life in the early '90s after the gay clubs closed. The images look phenomenal — so much so that there will be an Eastman Museum exhibit in NYC starting January 21:

A compelling story Renaldi told The Guardian:

In the summer of 1992, in the early hours of a Sunday morning, Richard Renaldi and his boyfriend Eric left The Sound Factory, the celebrated nightclub on Manhattan’s 27th Street, to walk home through Chelsea, on the west side of Manhattan. As they walked through the city, the pair was approached by an older man named Larry.

Larry, they discovered, would leave his Staten Island home in the early hours of Sunday morning and travel to Chelsea. There, he would silently watch gay men as they left New York’s world-famous nightclubs. 

Larry had never come to terms with his sexuality. He came of age in the 1960s, when sodomy was still a felony in every US state, and was still scared of identifying as a homosexual. So he would watch, from a safe distance, the men as they left the clubs – high, familiar with each other, still sweating from the dance floor. 

“He stood outside the doors of the nightclubs on Sunday mornings, looking in,” Renaldi remembers today.

Larry was observing a generation of gay men that, in comparison to his own experience, was out, proud and liberated.

Check out his book here.
