David Wiesner Keynote Continued

You guys. He just showed clips from THE SHINING and 2001.

The visuals of 2001 had a huge impact on David as a kid and the design elements and shot choices in the film have impacted his illustration sensibilities ever since.

Another thing that had an enormous impact on David as a kid was the concept of worlds within worlds. He read about it in science fiction and comic books, but what really got him were films like these:

The Eames's Powers of Ten

and NFBC's Cosmic Zoom


OMG David just mentioned one of my favorite movies! Stairway to Heaven and no, it is not that darn song.
