Watch: How to Create a Forced Perspective

17 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Distance from Camera x Scale of Model=Distance between Foregrounded Model and Background. That simple bit of arithmetic, as illustrated in the latest Shanks FX episode, is all you need to achieve an accurate “forced perspective.” The technique, recognizable from Back to the Future and myriad 80’s blockbusters, allows for the manipulation of objects to appear larger/smaller or farther/closer than they actually are. In other words, it’s VFX done on the (relative) cheap. »

The Blunt Reason You'll Never See Back To The Future 4

17 October 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Every single Back To The Future fan has at one point in their life pined for a fourth installment to the seminal franchise to be created. You can.t help it. Forget about how despicably average Back To The Future 3 was. There.s surely still enough plutonium left in the flux capacitor to generate another great adventure that revolves around Michael J. Fox.s Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd.s Doc Brown traveling through time. However, the film.s co-writer and producer has now provided a rather stellar reason for why it obviously won.t happen. And even though it makes perfect sense, you can.t help but hate him for saying it. Bob Gale, who co-wrote and co-produced each of the Back To The Future films, spoke to Yahoo Movies about why there will never be another big-screen instalment to the series. "Let.s face it, we.ve seen »

The X Factor's 1980s week: How the songs should sound

17 October 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Louis Walsh's rulebook is in tatters. It's a good job the 1980s gave us Back to the Future, because, only a DeLorean hitting 88mph can explain how these songs are being performed on so-called 1980s week.

John Lennon's 'Imagine' was released in 1971 on the Imagine album. It was re-released as a single to promote the Shaved Fish compilation though. In 1975.

It topped the charts after Lennon was murdered in 1980, and then was re-released in 1988 (and 1999), but frankly, that's cheating.

Also striking is the song and artist list published by ITV. Ben Haenow will be performing 'Jealous Guy'.

Of course that's not Lennon's version, also released on 1971's Imagine (re-released as a posthumous single in 1985). It's not even Roxy Music's famous memorial cover from 1981.

Ben is apparently covering Donny Hathaway's version. Made famous on 1972's Live. There's more timey-wimey stuff going on here ('If You Don't Know Me', »

Back to the Future will not be back in theaters but on the stage

17 October 2014 4:24 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It's not too often in the film community that fans can get excited over something Not happening, but this is exactly one of those cases. Despite Universal Pictures hitting up creators Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale to sequelize/reboot the Back To The Future series, Mr. Gale recently spoke against the idea, assuring fans that this is something not in the cards. Oddly enough, a stage musical of the most entertaining time-traveling duo (bold claim, I know) is in the works. Regarding the »

Here's How Back to the Future Plans To Celebrate Its 30th Anniversary

16 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's a fact that we're uncomfortable admitting, but next summer will mark the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. (Oh how time flies!) As beloved and iconic as this '80s classic is, you can bet that its makers have an eye out for ways to toast the film's long-running popularity. And screenwriter Bob Gale is dropping some details. Speaking with Yahoo, Bob Gale, who co-wrote Back to the Future with its director Robert Zemeckis, wasn't shy about sharing how the film will be toasted in 2015. He offered: "We.ve got some books in the works, and some fan celebrations. And I hope some other things are going to come to fruition. We.re definitely going to celebrate it, not only because the original movie is 30 years old, but also because Part II takes place in October 2015, so there are a lot of people looking at that angle, saying »

Learn to Recreate Back To The Future Time Slice Effect at Home

14 October 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I don’t know if you guys are aware, but PBS Digital Studios is killing it with their various YouTube shows. They are a geek must-watch, trust me. Or if you don’t trust me, watch this episode of Shanks FX, a web series by Joey Shanks that “[creates] Hollywood effects with simple household products.” In this episode, Shanks recreates the time slice effect from Back to the Future using stop-motion animation and light painting techniques. It is cool and only the first of three episodes focusing on Back to the Future’s effects. Here’s a rundown of the rest:

"This is Part 1 of 3. The 2nd installment will deal with the editing process of putting all these frames and exposures together. The 3rd installment will deal with creating miniatures and using forced perspective for our clock tower sequence."...one of the last shots of the film was me trying to »

In Honor of Dancing Baby Groot: 5 Movie-Inspired Toys We Wish Were Real

13 October 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Remember when you wanted a toy line based on your favorite movie as a kid, yet there was none to be found? Now it seems that fans just have to make a fuss on the Internet in order to get their dream action figures and other items based on the movies. Marvel's production of an official Dancing Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy is one testament to that. Of course, nowadays we also occasionally get stuff based on old favorites, such as in the case of ReAction's toys for Escape from New York, The Goonies, Back to the Future and more. Those can be found in stores. There are also many other retro figures that are custom made and not so easily purchased. Outside of a comic convention, that is. Here are five specific toys we'd like to see made in retrospect from some...

Event cinema comes of age

13 October 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Billy Elliot, André Rieu and Monty Python are leading the charge for the growth of event cinema.

Overpowering the sound of ballet shoes hitting the stage might have been the sound of jaws hitting the floor. On the morning of September 30, the UK industry awoke to the news Universal’s Billy Elliot The Musical - Live was top of the UK box office.

A theatrical showing of a West End musical had beaten the likes of Denzel Washington’s latest action title The Equalizer.

The fact a live broadcast of a musical that opened nine years ago led the box office on $3.1m (£1.9m) is something that might have shocked industry players even five years ago; a decade ago the idea would have been laughed at.

Now, event cinema’s first weekend leading the UK box office is confirmation of what a major force alternative content has become (both creatively and financially) within the film industry.

Back To The Future Tribute Art by Vincent Rhafael Aseo

8 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Great Scott! Check out his piece of Back to the Future tribute poster art created by Vincent Rhafael Aseo. I have so many fond memories of this classic movie, and this illustration highlights everything that I love about it. The lightning strike right down the middle is a nice, radical touch. It's strange that there are movies out there that a person can never get tired of watching. This is one those for me. I still enjoy watching it just like I did the first time I saw it, and what's cool about re-watching it so many times is that sometimes you notice stuff that you've never noticed before. You can check out more of the artist's awesome work right here.  »

This Is How J.J. Abrams Warns Set Visitors Not To Share Star Wars Secrets

7 October 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's well known that J.J. Abrams is a filmmaker who is a big fan of the "Big Screen Experience." During the production of his films he prefers to keep everything as secretive as possible, from the alien at the center of Super 8 to the villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Trek Into Darkness, all in the hopes that audiences won't know anything about his movies until they have purchased their tickets to see it. This legacy has continued with the filming of Star Wars: Episode VII, and, as it turns out, the writer/director is so serious about it that he actually got special poster designed warning visitors to the set that they absolutely cannot say anything about what they get to see from the movie. Frank Marshall, the legendary producer behind blockbuster classics like the Indiana Jones franchise, Gremlins, Back To The Future and more, was recently »

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and ‘Rick and Morty’ Are the Best New DVD/Blu-ray Releases of the Week

7 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Rick and Morty: Season 1 Rick is a scientist of great renown, probably, who lives with his daughter’s family in suburbia and spends his days tinkering and having adventures. His “partner” is his frequently unwilling grandson, Morty. Together they travel through space and time interacting with aliens, mutants and everyday people. And by interacting I mean causing trouble. The latest addition to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim lineup comes from the twisted minds of Justin Roiland (who also voices both Rick and Morty) and Dan Harmon, and while it found its origin in riffing on Back to the Future it quickly develops a life of its own thanks to a steady stream of very funny gags and smart writing. There’s a hint of Futurama here, but it’s a darker and far more »

From 'Psycho' to 'Gone Girl': the best director/composer teams

5 October 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

With this weekend's release of Gone Girl, director David Fincher has once again showcased the unsettling sounds of award-winning composers Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor (above). Ever since 2010's The Social Network, the duo have become a fixture of Fincher's work. The duo's deceptively minimal sound, with subtle motifs barely hiding cold electronic undercurrents, is remarkably well-suited for Fincher's trademark visual aesthetic, in which every smile and doorway can take on an air of menace if the camera lingers long enough. While he has worked with a number of composers before—most notably Howard ShoreFincher has found »
