The New York Times Magazine has released 11 original short films directed by Janusz Kaminski (Steven Spielberg's cinematographer) and starring this year's top movie actors--though we're less focused on Bradley Cooper's blue eyes and more drawn to the inspiring set they're reflecting. The brief videos pair Oprah Winfrey, Bradley Cooper, Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, and other powerhouse performers with a line of dialogue scripted by some of Hollywood's top writers. However, they also pair the stars with a setting that is a true source of inspiration in itself. The sets incorporate some of our favourite interiors trends: all white minimalist tabletop decor, red flocked damask wallpaper, 1920's boudoir furnishings, a classic Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen, and more. The short films give a glimpse into another world, one that we just may need to explore more of. Peruse our slideshow above for our favourite eye-catching stills, and watch all of the "Making a Scene" films at The New York Times Magazine.
