The Dusty VHS Corner: Stock Footage Spectaculars

14 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe delves into The Dusty VHS Corner for a trio of stock footage spectaculars in Strategic Command, Stormcatcher and Steel Sharks

In the mid to late 90’s, there was an almost epidemic boom of straight to video films that featured plot-lines involving submarines or fighter planes. Why? Well given the vast majority of these films were shot for about $3.00 each, the idea was to have plot-lines with these elements in order to use stock shots of F-16 fighter jets, stealth fighters, U-boats and other military based vehicles of air and sea in order to give the illusion that these films were more lavishly budgeted than they actually were, and indeed to further save time in the remainder of the shoot. If you go into a film knowing that you’ve already got 15 minutes of screen-time ready in a stock footage library, then you’ve only got to worry about »

Indie Spotlight: The Projectionist Starring Russ Russo and Doug E. Doug

16 February 2014 8:01 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On this holiday weekend edition of Indie Spotlight, I'm happy to bring you The Projectionist.  From writer-director Ryan M. Kennedy and producer Atit Shah comes this look at the effects of Ptsd and how war veterans afflicted with this disorder often go untreated and overlooked.  Described as "a warrior reduced to a shadow," The Projectionist follows Jacob Nicks (Russ Russo), a former solider attempting to cope with his undiagnosed Ptsd.  The film also features Natasha Alam (True Blood), Doug E. Doug (Cool Runnings), Kiowa Gordon (The Twilight Saga), Joseph R. Gannascoli (Sopranos), Robert Miano (Donnie Brasco), Dominik Tiefenthaler (Maybe Tomorrow) and Chris Lapanta (The Blacklist). Hit the jump for more. While previous Kickstarter projects have overwhelmingly been looking to crowdsource funds for production purposes, The Projectionist is already a completed film.  Instead, the filmmakers and production company Create Entertainment are looking to use Kickstarter in order to increase their distribution potential. »

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool

by Heather Wixson

Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish.
