In Part 1, I linked to my favorite site for free font downloads, 1001Fonts. I really like the interactivity that 1001Fonts offers, but on the downside it can be really hard finding the exact font that you want there.  Thankfully, we also have Dafont.

I have no idea why this isn’t one of the most popular sites on the net. Pandora is a personalized online radio station. Not only is it really easy to use, but you don’t even need to register to get started. Right when you get to the homepage, the site asks you what artist or song you are in the mood for. From there, your personal radio station chooses music with similar styles that it thinks you might enjoy. If you don’t like a particular song, you give it a thumbs down, it shuts right off (moving on to the next song), the station apologies and promises not to play that song or others too much like it again. If you decide to register an account with Pandora, then you can save your stations and listen to them at any time. The longer you have a station, the more songs that it learns that you like or dislike, which makes sure that you never have to change the station. You can hear it for yourself here.

A key ingredient to making a film is selling it and getting it seen. To help do that it is very important to have an awesome poster, website, DVD cover, etc. In designing any of those, you have to make sure you have the right font. You can’t just whip something up fast and use a default font on it.

Thankfully we have free sites like 1001Fonts. I have used 1001 for the past few years. They are constantly updated and have such a wide variation of fonts. They showcase both original stuff and fonts that mimic popular shows and movies. The site is set up around user feedback and the creators of the fonts have a direct line of communication with the people using them. Heck, if you wanna, you can even try to make your own fonts and post them on the site. You can take their site tour here.

While I hate hate hate how this site is laid out, I absolutely LOVE the content. The Internet Movie Car Database (IMCDB for short, of course) lists and has pictures for pretty much every car to be featured in any film and TV series that you can think of (including foreign films and music videos even). The design of the site makes it tough to scan through, but the search works like a charm. I also have a lot of fun clicking around the different car models and seeing the wild variety of shows and movies that use the same style car or even the same exact cars. If you like cars and movies, this site is perfect to get lost into for a couple hours.

Okay, so it might not be my favorite website yet, but Trailer Addict, like its name is insanely addictive. The site compiles and streams every trailer, TV ad spot and behind the scenes feature that is put online. This includes the ever popular Red Band Trailers, and its nice for a change not having to run for my wallet and search for my license to watch a trailer online. The site also features posters, news, and a nifty ratings system for all trailers. You can check it out here.
