Jeff Bridges’ Blog

I first saw Jeff Bridges in Tron sometime in the early eighties. Man, I loved that movie. Before I could truly appreciate what art direction was I was amazed at the luminous clothing, strong colour palette and abstract constructs that defined virtual space. It was ahead of its time.

Then came (with significant gaps) Starman, Jagged Edge, The Fisher King, White Squall and The Big Lebowski. I’ve always liked him on screen… he has something that captivates you. That’s not to say I’m a stark raving fan, but I like his work.

Unfortunately I have a misconception as to actors and their online creativity… I assume they have none. So it was with absolute wonder and amazement that I stumbled across Mr Bridges’ Blog. It’s astoundingly beautiful and unassuming. It’s the best site for an individual that I’ve seen. And its personal, it’s truly him expressing himself.

About torgnyhylen

I'm an digital creative director working in Cape Town South Africa for Ogilvy Interactive. I've been designing in some capacity for the last 14 years, 12 of those online. I love what I do... and if there was one thing I wish I could do more of... it would be to paint. Besides movies and art, my other serious past-time is good old pen & paper role-playing games. Writing stories for friends that take years to complete and are improved beyond recogination by their participation is a real kick.

    Speaking of Karen Allen, I wrote an unsolicited script for a Starman sequel back in 1998. It was my first script and I quit college to finish it. It’s been gathering dust ever since. I sent it to Jeff Bridges and John carpenter, although I would prefer if Carpenter didn’t direct a sequel. I wrote some good f/x sequences and some interesting characters. I’m pretty sure I’ll never be involved, but I’d to see the f/x scene from the beach being incorporated, (Jeff’s manager Neil will know the one, totally plagiarised from another movie, but it would look great on film today). If anyone has any questions, email me at hansenfilm@yahoo.ie and I’ll answer them. (Although I won’t give away any plot points. And yes there is a son and indeed, I actually have the perfect casting suggestion!!
