Sundance Film Festival Embraces Virtual Reality With 2017 New Frontier Program

1 December 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Yesterday, the Sundance Film Festival announced its feature competition categories. Today, the festival unveils its New Frontier section — which showcases the tech-enabled storytelling of tomorrow.

The boundary-pushing New Frontier category, which celebrated a decade of outside-the-box projects from the likes of James Franco and Joseph Gordon-Levitt earlier this year, is often overlooked by attendees focused on independent cinema, and yet frequently contains the festival’s most innovative fare. This year’s slate consists of the North American premiere of “Museum Hours”; director Jem Cohen’s latest format-challenging documentary, “World Without End (No Reported Incidents)”; a pair of live multimedia-enhanced performances (including one from “An Oversimplification of Her Beauty” director and Sundance veteran Terence Nance); 20 virtual-reality experiences; and 11 immersive installations — with additional projects still to come.

Three of the projects belong to Sundance’s “The New Climate” program — a thread of programming that calls attention to environmental issues and climate change. »

As the Sundance Film Festival’s groundbreaking and technology-facing New Frontier section kicks off its second decade in existence, the 2017 edition of the section boasts its most stacked and varied programing picks yet. The full slate includes “story worlds” in Augmented Reality headsets, projection-mapped acrobatics, a Vr beauty salon producing neuroscience data via the internet of things and a host of socialized, interactive and immersively haptic Vr story experiences.

The rest of the lineup includes live performances, a feature film and augmented reality experiences built to complement 22 Vr experiences and 11 installations, showcased between three venues in Park City. The Claim Jumper will host 10 immersive installations focused on cross-disciplinary story construction, while the Vr Palace will feature 17 Vr experiences alongside an additional installation and the Vr Bar will offer a lineup of mobile Vr. Two New Frontier projects are part of the Festival’s New Climate program, which highlights the environment and climate change. »

Editorial: The Many Faces of Carrie

21 September 2016 4:58 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Everyone, horror fan or not, knows who Stephen King is. Whether they read one of his books or watched one of the many film adaptations of his work, you will recognize one of his creations. Many children have a formed a fear of clowns after meeting Pennywise in It or are hesitant to stay at hotels after The Shining or 1408. A story many are familiar with is that of Carrie White, the girl with the religious fanatic for a mother who is taunted so much at school that it eventually leads to a blood bath of a prom. She kills her tormentors using her newly discovered telekinesis and ends up dying in the end alongside her mother. Her story was doomed from the start and, as tragic as it is, serves as a cautionary tale to those who might want to think twice before making fun of someone. King’s novel, »

James Earl Jones Joins Romantic Drama ‘Atlas of the Soul’

8 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Earl Jones has joined the independent romantic drama “Atlas of the Soul” opposite Lauren Fox, Andy Powers, Connor Paolo, and Emily Bergl, Variety has learned exclusively.

Jones will portray a mailman delivering packages containing rocks with the names of far-away cities to a recluse, played by Powers, living alone in a secluded Victorian house worn down by time. The packages are sent from his former lover (Fox), who has been driving cross country and living out of her van.

The producing team completed a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, raising more than $28,000 to help cover production costs.

Veteran indie filmmaker Jeremiah Kipp (“Edward Albee: A Transformative Moment”) will direct the film from a script penned by Fox. Lauren Rayner (“Sugar”) is the lead producer. Executive producers include Michael J. Zampino, Fox, and Powers.

Fox’s credits include “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” “Revolution Summer,” and “Noon Blue Apples. »

I was wrong. 'American Crime' is a great TV drama.

17 February 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Paul Lee got pushed out today at ABC. There are many things you can ding the man for about his reign as head of that network: the misguided initial version of The Muppets, greenlighting Work It! and Mixology (and scheduling the latter after Modern Family, while letting Trophy Wife die on Tuesdays), failing to turn either of his Marvel shows into hits (Agent Carter, by far the better of the two, seems unlikely to see a third season at this point), and struggling in general with any dramas not created or produced by Shonda Rhimes. At the same time, Lee was wise enough to turn over as much prime time real estate as he could to Shondaland, and he's turned ABC into a great place for family comedies that are smart, funny, and reflective of what America looks like in 2016. Lee also not only greenlit American Crime, but ordered a »

The Performer | Ellen Pompeo

The Show | Grey’s Anatomy

The Episode | “The Sound of Silence” (Feb. 11, 2016)

The Performance | If a picture really says a thousand words, this review is superfluous: Any image we publish of Pompeo’s stricken face from this week’s Grey’s will tell you all you need to know about her visceral performance.

After an attack by a disoriented patient left Meredith temporarily deaf and unable to speak, her portrayer turned her visage into a notepad, on which she scrawled volumes about her character’s fear and confusion, her rage and despair. Frankly, between the articulateness »
