I’ve always found old films interesting, watching films like the Godfather trilogy, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and even going as far as the fifties and forties with Vertigo and Citizen Kane. There’s something enchanting about these films that they make you look for similarly beautiful ones from the same era. In the Six Stages ofMovie Geek Evolution, I’d be somewhere between OscariaSubtitlus and FilmsnobiscusHipsterata, and still struggling.
After watching one ofAlfred Hitchcock’s masterpieces, Vertigo (1958), I decided to create (hopefully) a series of posts featuring several fan art related to the legends and myths behind the man on the chair and his classics. For starters, here are some tribute artworks on the great Sir Alfred Hitchcock:
Alfred Hitchcock is widely known for his innovative and pioneering techniques in the suspense and thriller genres of film. He pioneered the use of a camera in a way that it mimicked the gaze of a person, thus increasing the suspense and anxiety experienced by the audience. He also used a lot of “MacGuffins”, an object that serves to drive the plot of the story, but later on becomes insignificant.
Although he also made films in different genres— ranging from drama, comedy, mystery, and romance — he is better known for his works in the suspense and thriller genres. Based on IMDB’s genre index on Alfred Hitchcock, he has made fifty-four thriller films in a span of fifty-five years. Alfred Hitchcock’s career also spans three eras in film – silent, early talkies, and Technicolor cinema.
