Something’s Different…

Blues Brothers Terminator

This assignment called for subtly mashing together two iconic movie scenes into one image. In order to accomplish this, I took this pileup scene from the Blues Brothers and added in a little Terminator. He’s looking out of one of the upside down cars, biding his time…

I had a bit of a hard time during the preparation of this assignment. I knew I wanted to combine Blues Brothers with Terminator, since both of them have police cars, chase scenes, and driving through buildings. I wanted to use the driving-through-walls shot to swap their cars out, though, and after a quick search into these scenes I realized that the angles of these shots never quite match up. Not only that, but it’s hard to find a good angle of the Terminator in a car because it’s almost always a profile shot of him looking out of the car. So, to speed things up and keep with the subtle theme, I decided to use these profile shot and just put him in one of the cars in the many, many scenes of pileups in the Blues Brothers.
