BLACKWING SAY: It’s here, our third Volumes release, the Blackwing 1138. We’re calling this one “the sci-fi pencil.” Movie and science-fiction buffs probably already have an idea why. This pencil has a story to tell. Literally. Any “Intro to Film” student can tell you how simplistic movies were at the turn of the twentieth century. Some of the earliest examples like “Roundhay Garden Scene,” “Employees Leaving the Lumière Factory” and “The Arrival of a Train,” were motion pictures in the most literal sense: single frame movies shot with a stationary camera. They were a far cry from the works of art we see in theaters today. That all changed when a director named Georges Méliès decided to take his audience to the moon. Clocking in at 13 minutes, Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon was groundbreaking due to its length, intricate sets, elaborate costumes, and coherent story of six astronomers’ voyage dans la lune. It is not only the earliest example of science fiction film, it also laid the foundation for narrative films of all genres. The way Méliès seamlessly transitioned from one scene to another was revolutionary. His use of special effects, while rudimentary by today’s standards, was groundbreaking. The Blackwing 1138 salutes A Trip to the Moon and all things sci-fi. The pencil’s striped barrel may appear random at first glance, but the sequence of blacks and grays is very deliberate.
