Following on from the book covers arranged by hue/lightness, I've been playing around with the 1000 Frames of Hitchcock thumbnails. Here's the result of 15 minutes of coding and 2 hours of rendering using a single frame from the famous shower scene in Psycho… To see the individual frames, you really need to view the […]

Wow… that was kinda surreal — I was catching up with the Google News RSS feed for Alfred Hitchcock (who was born on August 13th) and there was this headline from today's Telegraph and an article that mentions me (well, mentions my nickname, anyway): Did Alfred Hitchcock make a secret cameo appearance in drag? Now, […]
I'm having to move the Hitchcock Wiki to a new web server (sadly, it's become a victim of it's own success). The new server is more or less set up, but it'll take a day or two for the new DNS entry for hitchcockwiki.com to propagate around the world.
Okay — I have a reference question that might just need the awesome combined power of the biblioblogosphere to answer! A few minutes into the 1960 film "Psycho", we get to see the following painting hung on the wall of George Lowery's office… (click to view larger version) Firstly, is it a Picasso? If not, […]
Just spotted that Tim is busy working on something that I dabbled with last February: www.colourphon.co.uk I'm actually in the midst of revisiting my code, as I want to automate a way of locating visually similar images from the "1000 Frames of Hitchcock" project, e.g.: Anyway, today seemed like a good opportunity to return to […]
Many thanks to Boline Skovly and Filmmagasinet Ekko for publishing an article about the site (specifically the 1000 Frames of Hitchcock project)… Hitchcock â€” stykke for stykkeFan har lagt 50.000 billeder fra Hitchcocks film ud pÃ¥ nettet. Guf for undervisere, mener ekspert.
After reading Brendan Dawes' "Analog In, Digital Out", I've revisited the colours of "North by Northwest" (see earlier blog post). Rather than squish every frame to a single horizontal line, this time each frame is squished vertically — see if you can spot the "crop duster" sequence: ( full sized version on Flickr )
When I started this blog in 2005, it was primarily to support the Hitchcock site, which started up in 2003. The title of the blog ("Self-plagiarism is style") being a quote from Hitchcock. Two years on, the most popular posts seem to be those about libraries so I've decided to fork the blog — this […]
Back in January, I set myself the task of reducing every one of the available major Hitchcock films down to 1000 frames of film. Today, nearly 7 months later, I've finally finished 1000 Frames of Hitchcock I'm guessing this is probably the largest online collection of images from Hitchcock's films, with a total of 52,000 […]
Just spotted that the Waltham Forest Council is cutting back funding to the William Morris Gallery in London. I'm sure many of you will already be familiar with his work but, if not, check out the Wikipedia article. If you are an aficionado of Morris' work, then you might want to head over to the […]
