Storytelling

Every company has a brand. Every brand is a story.

Silvertoad found this collection of beginnings and endings from films to inspire us in our work. In most cases we only have a starting point on a client brief, and in most cases we only really remember the ending or finished result. This selection of clips editing and selected by visual artist Jacob Swinney show what happens when the opening and closing frames from a myriad of classic and well-respected Hollywood movies are played side by side – the intervening 90 minutes or so has been chopped away. What can we tell from these parallel images?

It would be interesting to dig out some of Silvertoads’ brainstorms and compare them to finished results some time.

Enjoy the five minute clip – which also works as a fun game for film buffs to try and identify each of the clips. Click the picture to link.
