Mark Lee Ping-Bing’s Layered and Luminous Cinematography Shows the Power Of Minimalism

22 June 2016 9:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When cinematographer Mark Lee Ping-Bing received his apprenticeship training at the Central Motion Pictures Corporation, Taiwan’s largest studio and production company, he was exposed to elaborate lighting setups and shooting on sound stages. To the young cinematographer the sheer number and size (often large 10Ks) of the lights never felt quite right.

“We were just putting up lights because that was what was expected, but I never understood why,” Lee told IndieWire in a recent interview at MoMA, where a two-week retrospective of his 30 year career started on Friday. “You don’t always need more lighting — sometimes you put up a light and it kills the good light you already have.”

Lee had his opportunity to test his ideas in 1985 when he met Hou Hsiao-Hsien, a young director who had his own distinct ideas of how movies should be made, »

Wong Kar-wai to Produce and Co-Direct 18-Episode Drama Series

2 June 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After waiting many, many years for for Wong Kar-wai‘s long-gestating The Grandmaster, it thankfully looks like it won’t be another nearly decade-long absence for the director. The In the Mood For Love helmer recently hinted we’ll get news on his next film “soon,” but first, following in the footsteps of David Lynch, Steven Soderbergh, Cary Fukunaga, Jane Campion and more, he’s making the transition to television.

According to THR, the powerful Chinese production company Huanxi Media Group is funding an original, 18-episode drama series that Wong will produce, as well as direct some of. Although no story details are available yet, each episode will be in the $3.5 million dollar range and the entire series will consist of two seasons, one clocking in at 12 episodes and the other with six.

Intvw: A Six Pack Of New England Film-making Master Minds, Pt.2

1 May 2016 3:21 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The “Boston Underground Film Festival” (http://bostonunderground.org) at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, Ma is a hub for early film festival favorites, diverse programming, film culture and community along with multiple blocks of diverse short filmmaking visions. Whether it’s the celebration of local filmmaking talent with the “Homegrown Horror” short film block curated by Chris Hallock or the short film block that looks at the dark, twisted and humorous side of horror with “Fugue & Riffs”. After BUFF18, we had the chance to talk with six of these filmmakers as well as past and present members of these short film blocks at Buff!

These New England filmmakers and their film projects includes Andrea Mark Wolanin (Cleaning House), Izzy Lee (Innsmouth – which played at BUFF18 before the feature “Antibirth”), Jim McDonough (Idiom Origins Vol. 1), Jarrett Blinkhorn (They’re Closing In), Corey Norman (Suffer the Little Children) and Alex Divincenzo (Trouser Snake).

Watch: Celebrate the Greatest Cinematography of All-Time With New Video Essay

28 April 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then there will never be a definitive list of the greatest cinematography, but for our money, one of the finest polls has been recently conducted on the matter. Our friend Scout Tafoya polled over 60 critics on Fandor, including some of us here, and the results can be found in a fantastic video essay below. Rather than the various wordless supercuts that crowd Vimeo, Tafoya wrestles with his thoughts on cinematography as we see the beautiful images overlaid from the top 12 choices.

“I’ve been thinking of the world cinematographically since high school,” Scout says. “Sometime around tenth grade I started looking out windows, at crowds of my peers, at the girls I had crushes on, and imagining the best way to film them. Lowlight, mini-dv or 35mm? Curious and washed out like the way Emmanuel Lubezki shot Y Tu Mamá También, »

The First Monday In May Review

22 April 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Is fashion art? That question is raised in the documentary The First Monday In May. Actually, director Andrew Rossi’s documentary focuses less on that philosophical debate that on the preparations for Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2015 art exhibition “China: Through the Looking Glass” and the gala party that opened would mark its debut. The exhibit, curated by Andrew Bolton, represented a first-time collaboration between the New York museum’s Chinese art collection and gallery, in the museum’s main upper level and part of its mainstream fine art holdings, and the museum’s Costume Institute, considered by traditionalists as decorative arts rather than fine art, and housed in the museum’s lower level. The exhibit was the Costume Institute’s annual event, but the first time it had teamed with any fine art section and moved into the main level. It will also be »

Welcome to the Opening Night of the Tribeca Film Festival 2016!

17 April 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Although paintings, architecture and sculpture are often revered in the art world, fashion and film are undeniably art forms as well.  From the initial stages of the creative process, the implementation and collaborative phases, to the end result of hosting the world-renowned Gala at ‘The Metropolitan Museum of Art,’ with the most influential names in society wearing photography worthy designer dresses, the decisive, Anna Wintour, is one of the main driving forces behind the major fashion fundraising exhibition, held annually, on "The First Monday in May."

In the documentary, the curator of the Costume Exhibit at the Met, Andrew Bolton, ‘tries to trust his own judgment and not listen to what other people are saying.’  In 2014, access was granted to capture the creation of “China: Through the Looking Glass,” a collaboration between the Costume Institute and the Department of Asian Art. The show demonstrated how Western designers look to China for inspiration, using intricately embroidered silks,  blue and white porcelain inspired fabrics, and influences from Chinese Operas, and films, including Wong Kar Wai’s, ‘In the Mood for Love.”

Will  “China: Through the Looking Glass,” be more influential than the Alexander McQueen, “Savage Beauty” exhibition? How many people will attend, and most importantly, how much money will it raise? »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘First Monday in May’

13 April 2016 6:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cultures collide in “First Monday in May,” a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2015 exhibition “China: Through the Looking Glass” and its premiere courtesy of the Anna Wintour-spearheaded Met Gala. With considerable access to these twin productions, director Andrew Rossi charts the clash between a variety of old and new world forces. Eventually less an in-depth investigation than a superficial celebration of disparate styles, it’s a tribute to the Met — and especially its star Costume Institute curator, Andrew Bolton — that should fit discerning audiences like a finely tailored glove after its premiere as the opening night selection of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

“It’s a kind of theater … fashion can create a dream, create a fantasy,” opines Wintour at the opening of “First Monday in May” — named after the date of the Met Gala. Such fanciful inventiveness is at the »

31 March 2016 6:39 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Driessen has been involved with the sales company since it was founded in the early 90s, and has been MD since 2004.

Dutch sales executive Nelleke Driessen is to step down from her position as managing director at Fortissimo Films, it was confirmed on Thursday.

In an email to colleagues, the respected industry veteran spoke of her “many wonderful years” at Fortissimo.

“I’ve had the great fortune to work with a fantastic team in both Amsterdam and Hong Kong and with Nicole (Mackie) in London,” she commented.

“There were difficult times after (company co-founder) Wouter (Barendrecht) unexpectedly died in 2009 but I’ve been lucky to have had (chairman) Michael (Werner) to support me with loyalty and dedication. Nonetheless, I’ve decided that now comes the time to move on and take on new challenges, and I’m looking forward to doing that later this year.

Speaking to Screen, Driessen confirmed that she intends to stay within the film »

Dense and lacking the playful quality of his more straightforward work, this represents a new multi-narrative direction for Maddin, and a kind of rabbit hole. Working within the art world verses the film world, Maddin’s work, style and influences have a tremendous amount of power applicable to cinema within the space of a gallery installation.
