Handover Hangover: Hong Kong’s Film Industry Faces an Uncertain Future

17 May 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When China took over Hong Kong’s sovereignty from Britain in 1997, the former British colony was promised “50 years unchanged” under the framework of “one country, two systems.”

Twenty years on, a lot has changed, including Hong Kong cinema.

At the turn of the 20th anniversary of the handover, Hong Kong cinema is at a crossroad. Filmmakers are facing questions concerning the future of the city’s film industry, which was once known to the world as “Hollywood East.”

“We must think about how Hong Kong cinema should position itself in order to find our way to the future,” says Wong Chun, the 28-year-old director of Hong Kong drama “Mad World,” which won the new director prize at last year’s Golden Horse Film awards in Taiwan and Hong Kong Film Awards this year. “What is our strength, as compared to films from other Asian countries? It’s time to reflect on this. »

‘Dimension 404’ Showrunner Dez Dolly: With New Hulu Show, RocketJump Looks To “Heighten And Elevate Everything We Do”

4 April 2017 1:09 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

On April 4th, Hulu shared the first three episodes of Dimension 404, an anthology created by the team at RocketJump, which includes showrunner Dez Dolly, writer Will Campos, and executive producer Freddie Wong. For its latest project, RocketJump took the combination of action, humor, and nerd cred that led its short films to YouTube fame and applied it to a longer format. Each of Dimension 404’s hour-long episodes is a self-contained story that takes elements of modern pop and tech culture and examines them through a comedic sci-fi lens. It’s Black Mirror, but born from the Internet and given a campier tone.

Early reviews indicate that RocketJump has successfully pulled off the genre-hopping blend that makes up Dimension 404, but we wanted to get some insights about the series straight from its showrunner. Here’s our chat with Dolly about what his team has pulled off in their new Hulu program. »

Trippy Sci-Fi And Guest Stars Are On Display In Trailer For RocketJump’s ‘Dimension 404’

29 March 2017 4:55 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

12 days ago, we got our first look at Dimension 404, the upcoming sci-fi anthology series created by the team at RocketJump. Now, the full trailer for that show has arrived, and it gives viewers a closer look at the brand of trippy science fiction they can except from the six episodes that (fittingly) will arrive on Hulu on 4/04.

Across its dozens of productions, RocketJump has wowed audiences with a combination of action-packed storylines, dazzling visual effects, and quick wit that fits the absurdist situations on display. In Dimension 404, Freddie Wong’s studio, which here is led by showrunner Dez Dolly, looks as if it will once again put that combination on display. We’re expecting a smart satire of modern, tech-driven culture that will also reference sci-fi staples of years past.

For those who may not be familiar with RocketJump’s work, the presence of high-profile guest stars could »

RocketJump Shares Teaser For Hulu Series ‘Dimension 404,’ Coming April 4th

17 March 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

On April 4th, RocketJump will premiere a new show, and this one looks like it’s going to get weird. The digital studio co-founded by Freddie Wong has launched a short teaser for Dimension 404, an anthology series coming soon to Hulu.

Each of Dimension 404’s six hour-long episodes will tell a self-contained story, with the Internet serving as a consistent plot device throughout the series. The general understanding is that Dimension 404 will be a Twilight Zone for the digital age, a la Black Mirror. A press release says the show “aims to evoke that 3 a.m. feeling of wandering onto the weird side of the web, stumbling upon stories that cannot be explained in the world that we know.”

A big selling point of Dimension 404 will be its talented cast, which will include Lea Michele, Joel McHale, Megan Mullally, and Patton Oswalt. Mark Hamill will serve as the show’s narrator. »
