Get actress Emma Stone and writer/director Cameron Crowe in a room together and apparently the two can talk. If you want to know just how much and what about, you need only check out Stone’s feature for Interview Magazine, in which the interview component is conducted by Crowe. The visual side of things was left in the hands of Mikael Jansson who decided to go down the path of retro futurism meets contemporary sex appeal.
Decked out in fierce outfits by Karl Templer and styled with boyish slicked hair, Emma Stone’s editorial looks like it borrowed fragments from TRON, Blade Runner and Drive alike. At first the fuzzy pixelation and blurring makes you think these are just bad scans, but in fact they’re all part of the effect. Like we’re watching the scene on a screen with a bad signal, or like everything is holographic – a reality about to break apart at any moment and prove itself to be unreliable.
The effect even extends to the cover.
