Style frames from The Road

marchant_theroad.jpg

“Style Frames” are sort of like very rough concept art for movies, meant to evoke a feeling instead of being used a direct reference for set building and the like. Or at least that’s what I’ve inferred from Hugh Marchant’s set of images he created for the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, which he’s graciously post on Flickr.

The Road was filmed near Pittsburgh, home of our own Beschizza, who informed me that there is an abandoned turnpike around there that would be perfect for a post-apoc-themed reader meet-up in the future. I’ll bring the meathooks, you bring your own human flesh.

    Oh man I might have to drag my wife to those abandoned turnpike sites.

    I was looking for more interesting Pa. stuff to go see for our anniversary vacation.

    Hi, I have been asked by the studio to remove the slideshow of my work from my flickr account and I was legally required to do so.

    I can only ask if you would please do the same – sorry.

    Hugh

    Seems as if they’re using that selfsame highway as a shooting location.

    I love:

    Apocalyptic stories
    Stories about (defacto) parent/son relationships
    Road stories
    Sci-fi stories
    High-minded, slightly pretentious stories

    I despised this book and never felt so insulted or that I had wasted so much time reading any book, ever! What a piece of garbage.

    In case you can’t tell, I will not be seeing the movie.
