Creating a series of print designs based on digital Soundforms of the most iconic unscripted movie moments.
First: What is a Soundform?
Using audio editing software, I capture a visual print of the 'soundwave' from a recorded audio track. I then take this soundwave into various design programs and manipulate it, and create a unique design from the wave itself and the theme of the scene it was taken from. The resulting unique artwork is unlike anything else available to commemorate your favorite movies, tv shows or songs!
Why am I doing this?
For most of my life movies have been something of an obsession for me. I love to lose myself the spectacle, get caught up in the characters lives, and be drawn into their stories. As a designer and an artist, I am always tinkering with new ideas and designs, usually just for my own benefit. Recently, however, a design I did for my sister and brother in law based on a digital sound capture generated a lot of interest. Since, I have had several people approach me asking about purchasing prints of my Soundform designs, and if I was planning on making more. That's how this Kickstarter was born.
I want to set up and print a series of 5 of my designs with a common theme and inspired by the papercraft design work of Eiko Ojala, Brittney Lee, and Yulia Brodskaya
These moments are entirely unscripted and unrehearsed, but are instead improvised on the spot by amazing actors. Some of the most recognizable lines from our favorite movies were not scripted, but instead made up on the spot, or incredibly lucky mistakes. My project is inspired by and looks to pay homage to these moments.
So far I have completed three of the five designs to be included:
The final prints (except the $15 reward 10x8) will be 20 x 16 inches, giclee printed on high quality paper.
The remaining two designs will be decided by you! Please vote in the comments for which of the following scenes you would like to see designed exclusively for this kickstarter!
Include the number of your choice in your comment.
- 1. The Godfather "Leave the gun, take the cannoli"
- 2. Caddyshack "It's in the hole!"
- 3. Aliens "Game over man!"
- 4. The Shining "Here's Johnny!"
- 5. Taxi Driver "You talkin' to me?"
- 6. The Terminator "I'll be back"
- 7. Spinal Tap "These go to eleven"
- 8. Goodfellas "Funny how, funny like I'm a clown?"
- 9. Ferris Buellers Day Off "Anyone? Anyone?"
- 10. Ghostbusters "And...the flowers are still standing"
- 11. Serenity (Firefly) "Faster, Faster would be better!"
- 12. Write in your own! if it gets enough votes I'll make it!
I will post tallies regularly of the standings, the first design will be chosen on day 10 of the project (Aug 16th), the last design will be picked at day 25! (Sept 1st). I will post the final designs in the project as updates once they are complete!
After the project completes I will reach out to my backers to find out which print(s) they want for their rewards.
Which will you choose?
We have chosen our first round winner, and the design is ready for printing! Back to the Future!!
THE LAST DESIGN HAS BEEN CHOSEN!
In a last week explosive surge, SERENITY has emerged victorious as the 5th design!! After an overwhelming voting turnout in the last week via comments and messages, Joss Whedon's classic "Space Western" ended the round with an amazing 17 votes!!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!
After seeing the amazing and overwhelming support I have received for this project, far exceeding what I could have ever hoped for; I am going to include a bonus design that my wonderful backers can choose from for their final awards! The movie moment in 3rd place, Ghostbusters, is now our BONUS DESIGN!!
That's right, BOTH Serenity and Ghostbusters win round 2!! I am feverishly working to complete the designs before the deadline, I hope to have them up in a few days! Keep your eyes peeled for the updates
Please keep voting on your favorite other moments, I am having so much fun making Soundforms from these epic movie moments; I don't plan on stopping anytime soon! This project will continue!
In celebration of breaking 200% funding and being featured on Kickstarter-Conversations "Caught my eye" list, I have been able to design and set up a new reward, a limited edition JAWS inspired t-shirt! This t-shirt will only be available to backers of this kickstarter and will never be printed again!

Thank you so much for your support!
Risks and challenges
As I am working with an extremely qualified printer, my only challenges with this project will be printing, signing and numbering the limited edition prints. I don't know yet how many to order of each print, so the edition sizes are not determined.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
