Try doing any activity for 365 days in a row. It’s really hard. I don’t mean eating, or sleeping, or ripping off a page from your Dilbert Quote of the Day calendar, either — I’m talking about running every day for an entire year, or in the case of artist Greg O’Regan, watching 365 movies. And sketching them all.
We wrote about O’Regan last November, soon after he started his “watching and sketching 365 movies in 365 days” project with a drawing of Back to the Future‘s Doc Brown. Since then, he’s seen everything from Guardians of the Galaxy to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Batman to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gremlins to movies that aren’t as good as Gremlins (that’s most movies), Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith to Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi to… there’s a lot of Star Wars, actually.
Here’s some of his finest work, beginning with The Dark Knight.
My Neighbor Totoro
The Fifth Element
Full Metal Jacket
Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
The Lost Boys
And, of course, The Human Centipede (First Sequence).
O’Regan hasn’t announced what his next project is going to be, but hopefully it doesn’t involve any more human centipedes.
