Attentive Filmmaker Makes the Correlation Between Movie Scenes and Iconic Paintings
Different forms of art often times borrow from one another. This is no surprise, especially when it comes to newer forms, like cinema or video games, borrowing some elements from older ones. This is something which filmmaker Vugar Efendi is interested about.
Among other things, he writes, directs, produces and edits short videos of all kinds. His portfolio is comprised of all sorts of documentaries and other experimental compilations. Earlier this year he released Film Meets Art, where Vugar Efendi captures the relationship between various iconic paintings and cinema. From movies like Django Unchained and Psycho as well as work from renowned painters like Leonardo da Vinci and Sandro Botticelli, his 3-minute-long short shows this often-times overlooked relation.
Following the success of his first installment, Vugar claims that “there are plenty of movies more to include” and so he made a second film, Film Meets Art II. In order to catch all these comparisons, Vugar needs to be, not only a master in filmmaking but in paintings as well.
