LINKS & STUFF: Golden Globes, Syd Mead, True Grit, & Christopher Nolan

Starting today, every other weekend, I will be posting the best links, articles and news in the world of film, art, design, architecture, and social media marketing that I’ve found online during the week. If you want to stay in the loop before Friday rolls around follow ADM on Twitter (@artdepartmental) and on our brand new Facebook page where I post all the latest and greatest Production Design news.

Links of the Month

  • Ten super amazing tips and rules on email etiquette that people in the film industry should definitely read entitled: Email Etiquette for the Super-Busy. I found it incredibly helpful and will try to implement these rules slowly but surely throughout 2011.
  • I have tried explaining this many times but have always been at a loss for words. I’m glad this article could state what I never could: The Difference Between Art and Design. And, YES, there is a huge difference. Also worth mentioning, as a fellow tweeter said this week, “Just because ‘Art Direction‘ has the word ‘Art’ in it, doesn’t make it subjective.” 😉

    I am Sandeep Bhamkar from (mumbai) India. I have been working in Mumbai and Pune for the past two years on ad-films, television soaps, events and films as well. During all this work, I have gathered a lot of experience.

    Being an avid art lover and an artist from childhood, I have been always drawn towards art direction. A Bachelor of Fine Arts academically, I have always tried to implement different thoughts and ideas in the film industry. It has been my dream to pursue a career in Art Director and Production Designer and who else to give me better guidance than you.

    It would be my honor to work under your guidance. ( Internship )

    Looking forward for your co-operation.
