Okay so I’m currently obsessing about something, and I’m not referring to Walang Hanggan (though I’m also fanboying about that show LELZ). This one involves one thing that always gets my attention: MOVIES! And movie characters to be specific.
That’s why I was so ecstatic when I saw the latest masterpiece of Eisen Bernardo in his newest photoblog entitled Cine Mini Project. Eisen’s last blog The Pinoy Criterion Collection (http://pinoycriterion.tumblr.com) was nominated for the Culture and Arts Level: Luzon Category at last year’s Philippine Blog Awards.
Based from the name of the project itself, he does miniature versions of some of the most famous movie characters. What I particularly love about this is that there’s a really wide variety of characters that were included in this collection. To give you a sample, here are some of his works:
THEME 1: Best Actress Oscar winners
That’s Best Actress 1939, Best Actress 2010, and Best Actress 1977
THEME 2: Best Actor Oscar Winners
Best Actor 2008, Best Actor 2010, Best Actor 2011, and Best Actor 1991
THEME 3: Best Supporting Winners
Best Supporting Actor 2007, and Best Supporting Actresses 2006 and 2008
THEME 4: Literary Babies
Leads of Harry Potter series, Girl with Dragon Tattoo, The Hunger Games, and Twilight
THEME 5: Film Foreigners
Characters from prominent foreign films: Spain’s Volver, Thailand’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love, France’s Amelie, and Germany’s Run Lola Run
THEME 6: Superheroes Attack
No need to describe and name them. LELZ.
THEME 7: Timeless Classics
Iconic characters that stood the test of time by Monroe, Taylor, Hepburn, and Kelly.
THEME 8: Animation Creation
Prominent characters from award winning films Up, Spirited Away, The Incredibles, and The Little Mermaid.
THEME 9: Iconic Male Characters
Characters played by Tom Cruise, Jesse Eisenberg, Johnny Depp, and Tom Hanks
THEME 10: Iconic Female Characters
Lastly, characters popularized by Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, and Kate Winslet
If you don’t find them cute, then I don’t know what will. It’s like the Hollywood Walk of Fame for movie characters! God knows that if I wake up an instant millionaire, I’ll fund for a gallery exhibit showcasing this. The creator mentioned that he aims for 1000 movie characters and future plans include local characters as well. Yaaaay! As for who I want to see, here are 16 characters I think should have miniature representations.
1. Nurse Ratched, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
2. Marge Gunderson, Fargo
3. Mary Poppins
4. Vivian Ward, Pretty Woman
5. Annie Wilkes, Misery
6. The nuns of Doubt
7. Aibileen Clark, The Help
8. Jamal and Latika, Slumdog Millionaire
9. Nader and Simin, A Separation
10. Matt King, The Descendants
11. Megan Price, Bridesmaids
12. Col. Hans Landa, Inglourious Basterds
13. Anybody from West Side Story
