TV ident month II: Der phantastische Film

The German station ZDF used to broadcast this intro before showing horror and fantasy movies in their series "der phantastische Film" they started in 1970. The animation was made by none other than Heinz Edelmann (of Yellow Submarine fame).
(and Happy Halloween, dear American readers.)

On this blog, I found the following drawings and film stills:

TV ident month II: Längre högre snabbare

I travelled around the world on YouTube again to find more interesting TV idents. Watch the clip from a Swedish sports show above and you'll know what the motto for TV ident month II is.
While we're in Sweden, we should also watch the following two "vinjetts":

Ester Krumbachová

Some portraits captured while watching "Pátrání po Ester", Vera Chytilová's 2005 film about Ester Krumbachová (1923-1996).

Two beach parties with Morricone soundtracks

Summer's over here in Central Europe. I hope you all had your beach parties and/or processions, hopefully with good soundtracks.

I found out about "Adonai" through James Cargill's excellent mix for The Outer Church in the context of his soundtrack for Peter Strickland's new film "Berberian Sound Studio" (and I was pleased to find out that apparently my TV ident month seems to have found its way into this mix).

Vražda Ing. Čerta

Ester Krumbachová was a seminal figure of Czech cinema. As a writer and designer, she was involved in legendary films such as Sedmikrásky and Ovoce stromu rajských jíme, Valerie a týden divu, O slavnosti a hostech, Malá morská víla and many others.
Vražda Ing. Čerta (1970), the only film she directed, is lesser known. During most of its 77 minutes, the two main and almost only characters cook (Ona, played by Jirina Bohdalová) and eat (Ing. Cert / the devil, played by Vladimír Mensík) inside Ona's appartment.
It's quite a trip. Bon appetit!
