Dune Image Updates

I figured with the actual trailer for Dune about to drop any day now, nobody is going to care about a couple of enhanced images taken from a mobile phone in a theatre.


From what I have read, the teaser was made specifically for viewers in theatres and therefore, the content may or may not be the same in the trailer dropping soon. Part of the teaser trailer is the same as the one viewed in theatres, namely this image of Paul below:

The last image is really bad and I didn’t bother editing that because the quality is just so poor but as you can see, one of these shots is taken in the desert. And the other two are taken from the “What’s in the box?” scene that I’m hoping will be covered much better in the trailer.

Are you looking forward to Dune this year? I am hoping they won’t push it back but you never know. However, with Tenet storming away in theatres in the USA now, I doubt they’ll be pushing Dune back and I am hoping the trend continues with COVID-19 being stomped out!

For me, these movies represent something that gives me an escape from some of the not-so-good days we’ve all been having. And I get excited and feel happier when I know something is coming that’s going to be fun and entertaining. And it’s also something I can share with all my readers which is the most important thing!

I hope you are having a good day and remember that it’s “okay to not be okay”. I saw that on a Pinterest board and I loved it 🙂

ALSO DUNE FANS did you get that Timothee Chalamet is quoting word for word from the book? Wowww I can’t wait for this!

Hit me up in the comments and I would love to talk about Dune with everyone!

Dune Teaser Trailer has Leaked!

So I kind of link Dune and Star Wars together for many reasons but mostly because there are a lot of similarities between the two. So it seems odd to me that anyone that loves Star Wars wouldn’t be interested in Dune. But it’s totally okay if you’re not, of course 😁

So there will be some Dune posts here and there but I promise not to inundate anyone with too many😅

I have posted about Dune before when it was first announced and I figured since the trailer releases in seven days, it might be time to post again.

I did have a lovely GIF I was going to show you all but that GIF was taken down by Warner Brothers on Instagram… I did hear that Warner Bros were being really staunch about people uploading anything relating to the film if it was from the teaser trailer and guess what? This time they were telling the truth. I mean I get it. It is breaching copyright laws.

So a quick little GIF edit I found online which I converted into a smaller GIF because I thought it was pretty!

And finally an excerpt from the book which I really like:

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

― Frank Herbert, Dune

Stay safe out there my friends and I’ll catch you in tomorrow’s post!

My Star Wars Gifs and Edits

Dune 2020 Edits and Motion Art

After seeing the newly released images of Dune featured on the Vanity Fair website, I decided to have some fun with them and create some edits. I’ve been toying around with a couple of ideas and finally came up with the following.

I used some of the techniques I’ve just learned to add colouring and mask out the other subject in the image, so Paul Atreides is standing alone. I think this is a powerful image, and I enjoyed making it.

Edited by Darkside Creative

I also wanted to use the newly transparent image I had created of Timothee Chalamet in a motion art animation. I toyed with a few ideas and different designs and came up with this:

Created by Darkside Creative

I knew that I wanted to feature Paul and the official Dune logo and lettering in the same image. And I really wanted to showcase the sun of Arrakis surrounding Paul but also making him a part of it. And of course, the Dune lettering in the background completes the image.

EDITOR UPDATE: I added this late, sorry to anyone that may have been looking for this image. It’s online now! Enjoy.

What do you think? Feel free to leave me comments and questions.

My Star Wars Gifs and Edits

First Image of Timothée Chalamet in Dune!

I wrote an article about the connection between Dune and Star Wars some time ago. I initially wrote it for a website I no longer write for, but they never published it. So I polished it up significantly and published it for Medium. It was my first film-related article on Medium, and it was curated the next day. It might even get more traction now that the promotional run for Dune has finally begun.

Being the huge Star Wars fan that I am, Dune also has a special place in my reader’s heart. While the 1980s movie wasn’t really all that good, I am holding onto hope that Denis Villeneuve’s version will shatter the previous film’s records and maybe even push its cast and director into the Star Wars fandom’s hemisphere.

If you don’t know anything at all about it, feel free to read my article on Medium (and you’ll be supporting me as a writer at the same time).

Here’s the image scooped by Vanity Fair. It’s a very sombre image, the colour palette is giving off a melancholy feeling about it. And Paul Atreides looking downward reinforces the overall feeling of this photo. It’s beautiful.

EDITOR’S NOTE – I just realised why this image looks the way it does. HUGE SPOILER if you don’t know anything about the story behind Dune, don’t read this!

This is actually the last time Paul Atreides will ever see his homeworld. I haven’t read the other books so I have no knowledge of what happens after the movie. But as far as the previous movie-adaptation goes, this is his last moment on Caladan. Sniff.

Here is the link to their article. They also teased that they would be releasing their promo of the film in tomorrow’s copy! You can bet I’m going to be there waiting for it.

Are you excited? Let me know in the comments!
