Sid and David

David Byrne, shot by Hillman Curtis

Sid, painting by Jeff Scher

Two great new short films are out by two brilliant filmmakers: Jeff Scher and Hillman Curtis.

Hillman recently shot a short film with David Bryne and Brian Eno for their new record Everything That Happens Will Happen Today. The film is part of the cool deluxe CD package designed by Stefan Sagmeister!

Jeff's film is part of his amazing monthly New York Times column. This short, Dog Days, is described by Jeff as follows:

I love dogs and painting them is always interesting. One minute they seem so human, listening to you or interacting on an emotional level, and the next minute they’re drinking out of the toilet or rolling around on a dead squirrel. And they are always game — when it isn’t too hot out.

Dog Days, indeed.

Debbie, I don't know if you're aware of this, but Sid was Paul Sahre's doggie. He would come downstairs to receive visitors, a total sweetheart.

The collaboration of Bryne, Eno, Curtis, and Sagmeister is creative bliss. Talk about your superpowers!
