On the heels of the 87th Annual Academy Awards, we can’t help but feature this funny compilation of parodied clips featuring kids reenacting scenes from this year’s Best Picture nominees (American Sniper, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, Birdman, Selma, Boyhood and Whiplash). Directed by Los Angeles-based producer/director Ethan Cushing for CineFix, “Kid Oscars 2015” is comical and awkward all at the same time (just picture child actors impersonating Martin Luther King Jr. and Stephen Hawking). It’s all in good fun, and highly entertaining.

Celebrity portraiture is a fascinating niche. We love seeing another side of these familiar (and often admired) individuals. Chicago-based photographer Sandro Miller had something else in mind when he recently collaborated with acclaimed actor John Malkovich. Rather than capturing the essence of Malkovich himself (which Miller has done in the past), the project Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters, as the name suggests, explores photographers whose photographs helped shape Miller’s career. This project is not only evidence of Miller’s amazing photography skills through the full recreation of iconic photographs without the use of Photoshop editing, but also Malkovich’s stellar acting capabilities, transforming himself into these familiar subjects. Miller expresses his esteem for Malkovich in his own words “John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.”

Italian designer/illustrator Alessandro Pautasso’s graphical interpretation of old Hollywood icons is really stunning. His use of bold colors and geometric shapes (not quite as orderly as the geometric work of Charis Tsevis), is the perfect combination to deem these masterpieces in their own right. Pautasso’s amazing talents by way of Photoshop and Illustrator on Wacom hardware is truly inspiring. Nice work
