Monstrous Animated GIFs Give Classic Creatures a Noir Look by MVHV

Halloween is looming large which means it’s the perfect time to get spooked by these high-def stereoscopic GIFs from Brooklyn-based The Saline Project—Jesse Roff, Liam Kirtley, Adam Toht, and Ben Toht. The collective have previously made videos for Modest Mouse, The Cure, and The Roots, but decided to turn their hand to making a GIF series called Monsters, Villains, Heroes and Victims (MVHV) featuring icons like Wolfman, the grey alien, and the Loch Ness Monster.

To create the series, they first photographed the models in costume, cut apart and dimensionalized the photos on the computer, and designed an environment in virtual space using both 3D and photographic elements. Then they animated them with a virtual camera and redering the final GIFs. The result is high quality, slick-looking 3D GIFs that doth their cap to the film noir aesthetic.

This new Sin City looks really weird.

Ladies and gentlemen, and variations thereupon

You know, I’m amazed that in all my time on tumblr, I’ve never seen a single post appreciating this lady. I mean, do you realise what is happening here?

This is clear and casual acceptance of gender non-conformity in mainstream media. And not only is this in Doctor Who, with an audience of millions and millions of people worldwide, but it’s also set in the future, implying that progress is not only spaceships and interplanetary colonisation, but also in the way of acceptance of identity outside the gender binary.

So yeah, let’s take a moment to appreciate the awesome lady in Doctor Who that was totally chill about trans* folk without making a big show of it. You go, girl*!
(*or gentleman, or variations thereof.)

Russell T Davies wrote these episodes, with these lines:

  • End of the World: Ladies and gentlemen and trees and multiforms…
  • The Long Game: Ladies, gentlemen, multi-sex, undecided or robot…
  • Midnight: Ladies and gentlemen, and variations thereupon…

In Russell T Davies’ futures, gender is always more complicated than today.  

Davies also created Jack Harkness, from a future (the 51st century) where sexuality is fluid (also Jack and the Face of Boe have both been said to carry pregnancies).  

On the other hand the Moffat years gave us this line:

"We’re the thin/fat, gay, Anglican marines: why would we need names as well?" 

Because its so funny and weird that out of hundreds of “anglican marines” in Demons Run in the 52nd century, that a fat guy and a thin guy would be a couple…ok….

And they’re literally credited at the end as “Fat One” and “Thin One”.   They’re purely a joke.

Is that how straight people see us?

Anyway, in the meantime (bringing us back to the original post), the fact that no one knew this Hostess’s name in “Midnight” is considered a major tragedy, because she is a hero.

(The episode also features a character named Sky who mentions her ex with she/her pronouns, and no one makes a big deal out of it.  Its entirely normal, and not a joke at all.)

Remember when I liked Doctor Who?

So many reasons to hate Moffat. But these are very good ones. 

Just a few thoughts on Doctor Who worth reading.

It’s also worth pointing out that, at face value, Doctor Who is a children’s show.
