Inforgraphic: The Coppola family, inetrconnected

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Map and Pop Culture enthusiast, and big fan of the Coppolas, Dylan Narqvist, takes us through the prominent family's work in film, in his graphic The #Coppola Family: An Interconnected #Cinema History.

Dylan offers some more info on the Coppolas, after sharing his infographic on Reddit.
The members of the family are the following :
- Francis Ford Coppola (used as a reference);
- Eleanor, his wife;
- Carmine and Italia Coppola, his parents;
- Talia Coppola (Talia Shire), his sister;
- Sofia, Roman and Gian-Carlo Coppola, his children;
- Gian-Carla Coppola (Gia Coppola), his granddaughter;
- Marc, Christopher and Nicolas (Nicolas Cage) Coppola, his nephews on the brother side;
- Jason Schwartzman and Robert Coppola Schwartzman, his nephews on the sister side.

Only the movies where at least 2 of them are involved are shown, which explained why some Coppola masterpieces like Lost in Translation are not displayed here, sadly.

In case it's not as obvious as I thought :
- A full Circle means the person directed the movie;
- Outer Rings mean acting inside the movie (even not credited small parts);
- Dotted Outer Rings are other actions (producing, music, etc.), always specified.

A map of fictional Britain

Monday, January 14, 2019

Londonist has put together this map of "Fake Britain," which plots over 720 names of fictional cities, towns and villages from films, books, poems and television series.
We've put together a map of fictional locations from film, TV, literature and other sources. Take a look around this alternative nation and see how many places you recognise. From Judge Dredd to Vanity Fair, it's all here.

The vast majority of entries are well defined geographically. Some — such as Beanotown and Blackadder's Dunny on the Wold — are a little more nebulous, but we've added them for fun. Hogwarts is an unmappable location (unless it's a Marauder's Map you're looking at), but we've had a go anyway.
