Tops

The Kid Should See This has a great post on a wonderful short film by two of my favorite designers: Tops (1969) by Charles and Ray Eames.

Photographers should make note of the shallow depth of field cinematography used in this film which was unusual at the time of its making, and, the beautiful colors filling the frame. This is more than a film about various types of tops, it’s a piece of art in its own right.

Charles and Ray Eames were American designers who contributed to many fields.

Elmer Bernstein was an American composer who did numerous film scores and did quite a bit of work for the Eames studios, including the most excellent soundtrack to this short film and the well known film: Powers of Ten which I posted about a while ago here: Powers of Ten.
