Privacy Films As The Solution To Safety And Security Concerns

Window tinting is quite common is cars for privacy and sun control. For homes, the privacy film in Sydney reduces glare on the television and computer screen and fading on furniture. However, the best benefit is energy savings because the film controls the amount of sunlight that enters a room.

Privacy films come in different grades, shapes, colour and thicknesses to offer solutions to concerns like privacy, safety and security, UV filtration, heat and glare reduction, thermal insulation, decoration and branding and protection from graffiti. The film is normally applied on the interior side of flat glass windows to reduce the light and UV radiation that enters a home or office.

On the other hand, the security film that is applied to windows holds the broken glass together to prevent injuries from flying shards. It also prevents intruders from entering the home easily. Security films are often used in commercial glass. The purpose is to secure the integrity of glass when it is subjected to a heavy impact. Innovations in the quality of security films have created films that can withstand the impact of bomb blasts.

Privacy films that are applied to office windows and doors reduce visibility from glass. The low-light side offers an unimpeded view while the high-light side virtually offers no view. An option is the transparent film that makes glass translucent but not transparent. In automobiles, privacy films used are available in several gradients of darkness to satisfy individual requirements.

If you are going to apply privacy film on your window glass, remember that the films are not suitable to all types of glass. Several factors are considered from absorbance of glass and film, size of the window pane, glass thickness and the way that the window is constructed whether it is single pane, insulated, laminated, toughened or treated with low emission coating.

Many businesses prefer to apply privacy film in Sydney on the window glass as an alternative to installing blinds and curtains that may not work well to create a professional image. If the boardroom is surrounded by glass, privacy film can be used to ensure privacy during meetings and conferences.

How The Stars Wars Series Inspired Artists

Star Wars and its characters are used as inspiration by artists in their artworks but how about George Lucas who created the iconic film? Where did George Lucas gain the idea for the film, the characters and the alien invaders?

According to George Lucas, he drew inspiration from sci-fi comic books like Flash Gordon. The filmmaker’s imagination was also sparked by works of artists like landscape painter N.C. Wyeth and Norman Rockwell , the all-American illustrator. These artists gave Lucas the inspiration for the expansive world inhabited by Luke Skywalker and his companions.

George Lucas writes in his introduction to Star Wars Art: Visions that every artist he admired has contributed in one way or another in shaping the vision he expressed in the Stars Wars saga. Lucas and executive director J.W. Rinzler encouraged artists to produce Stars Wars-inspired art to be showcased in the book.

According to Rinzler, the first thing that George Lucas asked from him was to checkout “Heavy Metal” magazine because he wanted the top illustrators and people involved in fine art including guys who were into Western art. George Lucas also showed interest for people who made paintings about history and aviation including NASCAR Formula One racing cars.

Book illustrator Scott M. Fischer considered the costumes of the stormtroopers as the coolest in the Stars Wars galaxy. He remembered having a plastic costume inspired by the stormtroopers back in the 70’s. Since a stormtrooper certainly needs a partner, the idea for Fem Tropper came into existence. A perfect Stars Wars subject will be the stormtropper armour that is wrapped around the sensuality of the female form.

Figure painter Paul G. Oxborough recalls that his first piece of painting expresses his affection for the Star Wars films. He allows the viewer to feel that the painting is one of George Lucas’ visions.

Star Wars Art can now be printed on canvas to be used as décor for the home. Once the image of your favourite Stars Wars character is printed on canvas, it is stretched or gallery-wrapped on a frame. To ensure a unique décor you can have the canvas prints customized using your Star Wars themes.
