Have you ever heard the old Native American legend where all the animals of the forest were forced to choose between the bear and the crow in a battle? And all the animals sided with the bear because he was obviously the bigger and stronger creature? But in the end, it was the crow that won, because he pecked all the animals' eyes out and they were forced to walk around blind for the rest of their lives? The lesson here is don't judge a book by its cover.
But you know what? Bears pretty much rule. And really, when it comes to taking sides, I think you'd be pretty stupid not to choose the bear. I mean, if there's anything Grizzly Man has taught us, it's that you don't want to mess with a bear, or else Werner Herzog will make a documentary about you. And if Werner Herzog is making a movie about you, you know you're in trouble.
As for the crow, I really can only think of that movie The Crow. And there you've got a bunch of depressed goth kids and that whole creepy thing that happened with the actor who was killed on the set. So actually, yeah, I'm going with the bear. No offense. I just don't want to die today.
What amazes me more than any of this design work going on here is the amount of wildlife roaming the Dolores Park neighborhood of San Francisco that Scott is so easily able to capture with his Polaroid camera.
