Alternate universe movies: "The Empire" — an imaginary Saul Bass film trailer

I always enjoy some classic Saul Bass graphics (see Saul Bass on the Web). The Empire (2009) is a short animated homage to Bass's distinctive design style, in the form of an imaginary film trailer. It was created by a group of designers: Peter Arcara, Colin Hesterly, Jacob Smeraglia, and Justin Demetrician.

What a cast! And its producer and director — whoa!
