“Memories of Blue is about a lot of things from my childhood, all of them film related. The blue outline around Superman’s flying figure (a flaw of early blue-screen effects), a song from Vangelis’ Blade Runner soundtrack (called “Memories of Green” but later revisited and renamed “Memories of Blue” in another album) … the list full of minute, blue coloured details from my personal film-watching memory, is rather long. This blog is a collection of notes on films I watch and films I love. I am a designer, so naturally, they are written from this point of view, but I occasionally make films too, so you can expect some observations on the art of film-making in general.”
