❝Those are all tattoos that Ryan says he wants, but can’t have them as an actor, says Cianfrance. He thought he should have the most tattoos in movie history. He really wanted a face tattoo. I asked, ‘Are you sure?’ He said, ‘Face tattoos are the best.’ He said, ‘It should be a dagger dripping blood. It’s so tough.’ First day we’re shooting, Ryan pulls me over and says, ‘I think we should lose the face tattoo. It’s too much.’ And I said, ‘That’s what happens with a face tattoo. You regret it. Now you’re stuck with it.’ Every choice has a consequence.
One of Pixar’s ideas to show the public how animation works was to build a zoetrope, much like the one Studio Ghibli had made previously. However, instead of drawings, 18 different sculptures were made, and a strobe light was used as they spun around. This made each of the images freeze in space, creating the illusion of animation.

Chinese artist Yang Yongliang is known for his sprawling photographic collages that depict the devastating effects of uncontrolled urbanisation and industrialisation. At a distance the works look like traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy but when viewed up close, the peaceful mountains and seascapes are found to be choked with buildings, factories, and machinery.
