Epic new posters for Star Wars Identities – Yoda, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett

Star War Identities was revealed a few months ago, and it was described as being a new interactive museum exhibit that is scheduled to debut at the Montreal Science Centre on April 19th. It will focus on the pivotal developments of Anakin and Luke Skywalker. Combining material from the Lucasfilm archives with a scientific approach to the concept of identity to present an interactive experience for fans.

Rather than offer an explanation of each, we are leaving it to our readers to decipher the meaning inherent in the portraits. Given the exhibit’s theme of identity, or “the forces that shape us,” the illustrations draw inspiration from each character’s individuality — what it is that makes them unique or the things and events that shaped them along the way.

In the internet era of Super Bowl commercials, "things have changed"

Things have changed in Super Bowl advertising. It used to be about a one time hit for 30 seconds or 60 seconds in the middle of the show. And increasingly we’re trying to create a sort of two-week buzz.

The way in which people advertise in the Super Bowl was kind of developed before there was an Internet. One of the things that we did last year — and I don’t think we’re overstating it by saying we pioneered this — is we pre-released our ad.

This year, of course what’s happened is everyone will pre-release. I suspect there will not be an ad you’ll see on the Super Bowl that wasn’t available online. So our feeling was if you want to stay ahead of the curve — if no one is pre-releasing, let’s pre-release; if everyone is pre-releasing, let’s do a pre-pre-release.
