Vince Vaughn and Co. Create Stock Photos To Promote ‘Unfinished Business’

I’ve gotta admit, I have some stock in this game. Unfinished Business, which comes out this Friday, March 6th, is a film I worked on back in 2013 while I was an intern at Escape Artists. But that doesn’t make this newest promotional effort any less AWESOME. Unfinished Business sees Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, and Tom Wilkinson take their small business to Europe to compete against a giant company for a contract. The giant company is Vaughn’s former employer, hence the title of the film. To promote the film, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with iStock by Getty Images to

Comic Book Heroes Mixed with Mythology!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first complete edition of The Drawing Board here on the SourceFed website. Like we said last week, we’re really excited about this format and we hope you are too. This week’s theme was Comic Book Heroes Mixed with Mythology. We had some pretty kick ass designs for this so without further ado, LET’S TAKE A LOOK! These first three all come from Ioannis Hadjikyriakou. The Speedy Messenger Well done. The Flash here is running through Centropolis, which, along with the S.T.A.R. temple, are a great couple of nods toward The Flash’s mythology. The circular stitching

Video Games Are Now Officially Art, Kind Of

New York’s Museum of Modern Art has a new exhibition that is scheduled to be installed in March of 2013: Classic and modern video games to be shown in MoMA’s Philip Johnson Galleries. That’s right, kids, video games are art. Suck on that, Roger Ebert!

Thus far, the museum’s bought about fourteen games to add to its permanent collection. Here’s a piece of MoMA’s blog on the whole exhibit:

Are video games art? They sure are, but they are also design, and a design approach is what we chose for this new foray into this universe. The games are selected as outstanding examples of interaction design—a field that MoMA has already explored and collected extensively, and one of the most important and oft-discussed expressions of contemporary design creativity.

So here are a few of the games that will be installed in the exhibit:

Pac Man

Okay, yeah, Pac Man, standard operating procedure.

 

Tetris

Tetris, naturally. No surprises here. Moving right along.

 

Portal 

Portal’s an interesting choice, though the first time you jump through a portal and drop sideways from a ceiling, you’re immediately going “holy shit this is art.” I get it.

And then there’s another modern addition that I find interesting. They’re bringing in an MMO:

EVE Online

 

As an occasional EVE Online player, this makes a lot of sense. The game is absolutely gorgeous, and a perfect piece of art that continuously illustrates how people will split off into their own factions and get into their own diplomatic scraps.

If you want to take a look at the complicated self-created universe of EVE Online, I would check out EVE Radio. Every so often, you’ll get commentators that dive into the intricacies of EVE. It’s fascinating.

And, because there’s actually money involved in this game, we sometimes hear about these gems. And the choice is far more interesting than World of Warcraft, anyway.

Question: What games would you like to see in the exhibit?
