Hey Sweden!

Video games, movies and serial killers are my obsession, not a good one that's for sure, but I still find them rather fascinating.

However, John Carpenter's The Thing tops all of them. Can't get enough of it!

This blog is dedicated to all of them, enjoy!

Hey Sweden!
Hope you guys are all doing great. So sorry about my super long absence from tumblr, but I’m growing up. Which pretty much means I started working as a Graphic Designer and it takes a lot of my time. 
Anyways, hopefully I’ll be back and post more The Thing stuff. How about I scan all of the The Thing From Another World comics? You tell me!
Oh, and this is me with my ultra mega favorite internet celebrity, James Rolfe ( Angry Video Game Nerd). Sorry, I had to show it off haha :P
Thanks for the follow!

When THE THING became JOHN CARPENTER’S THE THING

Producer Stuart Cohen has an amazingly comprehensive making-of blog regarding JOHN CARPENTER’S THE THING

there’s a great deal worth reading but maybe none moreso than the linked piece above, about how Carpenter took advantage of a six-week break in filming to watch what he had, realize it wasn’t working, and go to town on the whole affair with a scalpel.

The Incredible Effects of The Thing, Cinefantastique issue detailing the design and implementation of many of The Thing’s effects sequences.
The visuals of both the desolate Antarctic and the ever-morphing alien creatures in The Thing were envisioned long before the movie was shot. Extensive storyboards were drawn by artist Michael Ploog so that all the departments of the production were on the same page in their preparation for the shoot. This is nothing new… but the similarity between the storyboards and the final imagery shot by legendary DP Dean Cundey is staggering. Storyboards are often only a guide, but in this film they were so specifically rendered that they became gospel. The detail and artistry of Ploog’s work up front, allowed the crew to have clear and defined goals on those frigid shooting days in both Alaska and Canada. 

To demonstrate this point… I’ve taken two scenes from The Thing and laid down the storyboards next to the shots in the final edit of the film. The video below examines the discovery of the alien spaceship and the transformation of Norris in the shocking scene that still haunts me today. Just like Hitchcock worked with Saul Bass to create the famous shower scene in Psycho, Ploog crafted beautiful storyboards for Carpenter so that the time on set was best utilized to tell the story. Be it pencil to paper or an iPad app filmmakers can share the envisionment of the worlds they are creating by using storyboards. —Vashi Nedomansky, The Thing: Storyboards to Film Comparison
