George & The Charlie Chaplin Time Traveller.

I’m sorry to go over old news here but I completely missed all coverage of this story back in October 2010.

From BBC News:

Has Belfast film-maker found time travel evidence?

A Belfast film-maker has posted a video on the internet showing what he says could be evidence of time travelling.

George Clarke from east Belfast has been puzzled for more than a year by a scene in a film which appears to show a woman talking on a mobile phone.

The unusual thing is that the movie was made by Charlie Chaplin in 1928 – long before mobile phones were invented.

In the eight days since George posted the clip on Youtube – more than 1.5m people have viewed the video online.

Even the US talk show host Jay Leno created his own spoof version.

George was checking the extras on a Chaplin DVD box-set and began watching a clip of the 1928 Hollywood premiere of The Circus.

“As I sat back to watch it I realised in the first 30 seconds there’s A lady strolling by with her hand up to her ear which looked quite familiar in today’s society.

“So I wound it back and watched it again, zoomed it in and slowed it down and got other people in to check it out.

“Everybody had the same reaction – it looks like she’s talking on a mobile phone.”

He has since showed the clip to a number of people, including the audience of a Belfast film festival.

He said no-one has been able to provide an explanation.

Since posting it on Youtube it has had more that 1.5m views and provoked 10,000 comments.

“A mystery like this one, bottom line I don’t think we’re ever going to find out,” George said.

“My initial reaction was that’s a mobile phone, they weren’t around then, my only explanation – and I’m pretty open-minded about the sci-fi element of things – it was kind of like wow that’s somebody that’s went back in time.”

End Of Article.

What the hell is George on about?
What the hell are you on about George?

“A mystery like this one, bottom line I don’t think we’re ever going to find out”.

George.
Georgie!
Here’s what’s happend George.
Here’s what you’ve done:
You’ve been watching the extras on your Chaplin DVD and you’ve seen this:

You’ve paused it and zoomed right in George…

You’ve immediately jumped to the conclusion that:
(a) “That’s a mobile phone!”
(b) “That must be a TIME TRAVELLER!”

Then what you’ve done George is – You’ve went to the internet, the papers and the T.V telling everyone about the time traveller you’ve noticed.

Wanna know what my first thoughts were Georgie?

“There’s someone scratching their ear”.
My second thought was:
“Hearing aids were around in the 1920’s, maybe it’s a hearing aid”.

My third thought was:
“LOOK AT THE FUCKIN’ SIZE OF THAT ZEBRA!”

Case Closed Georgie.

“Back To The Future” Concept Art.

This follows on from the last post and onto the next one.

We all know the ‘Back To The Future‘ films and how great they are and how,
If you haven’t seen them,
You’ve haven’t seen anything.

But do you know about the artist behind the classic artwork for the trilogy?
That was Drew Struzan and he’s responsible for these:

A lesser known piece of art from the trilogy is this:

Don’t worry.
It’s not for a ‘Back To The Future: Part IV‘.
(Let’s hope that never ever gets made).
No,
It’s an unused piece for the Part III cover.

Even Drew Struzan’s outtakes are jaw droppingly good.
So far as I know,
He used acrylic paints and coloured pencils on gessoed board to create the final pieces.

I dug around to see if I could find any Struzan working sketches or concept art.
I found these:

‘Back To The Future: Part I‘. (1985):

‘Back To The Future: Part II‘. (1989):

‘Back To The Future: Part III‘. (1990):

There’s a good chance that you own some Drew Struzan artwork in some format or another.
From ‘Blade Runner‘ to ‘Indiana Jones‘ to ‘Harry Potter‘,
Drew Struzan did the artwork.

You can see a helluva lot of his working and final pieces right HERE.

Don’t say I never show you anything .
