The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Cinematographers and the Films that made them great

12 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

So, we come to the end of this particular series. We’ve covered a number of aspects of the creative input into film-making, including actors, actresses, writers composers, and directors (in two parts). We’ve stopped short of costume, make-up, special effects, art design and others, however our final stop is Cinematography. The Dop exerts plenty of influence over the look of the film. Yes, lighting, production design and the director’s vision are key too, but the consistency and persistence with which certain directors stick with and return to a trusted Dop shows just how much they contribute.

Darius KhondjiSeven

Seven has a unique visual aesthetic. Plenty of films have gone for the “always raining, always dark” approach, but contrast Seven with something like AvP: Requiem for a shining example of how hard it is to pull off effectively. And contrast is the word. Seven »

Harrison Ford on Returning to ‘Blade Runner,’ Reprising Deckard Role

8 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Harrison Ford has had a career resurgence of late, playing characters he made iconic three decades ago.

The veteran actor reprises the role of Rick Deckard in the upcoming “Blade Runner 2049,” and spoke about returning to the role 35 years later.

“I think it’s interesting to develop a character after a period of time — to revisit a character,” Ford said during a preview event at Imax headquarters in Playa Vista, Calif. It was a very interesting working with Denis [Villeneuve], working with Ryan [Gosling]. It was very gratifying experience.”

“The character is woven into the story that intrigued me,” Ford added. “There’s a very strong emotional context; the relationship between Deckard and other characters I found fascinating.”

Ford was also asked about re-entering the world of “Blade Runner,” a neo-noir aesthetic later adopted by films like “The Matrix,” “Minority Report,” and “Children of Men.”

Cinetic Nabs North American Rights To Hot Docs Highlight ‘Pre-Crime’ (Exclusive)

6 May 2017 2:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cinetic has acquired North American rights to Monika Hielscher and Matthias Heeder’s documentary feature “Pre-Crime,” which world premiered at Hot Docs and garnered warm reviews.

“Pre-Crime,” a term originally coined by science fiction author Philip K. Dick in “Minority Report,” examines repercussions of predictive policing techniques that are used in the U.S. and in Europe to identify and monitor tomorrow’s criminals based on algorithms and databases.

“We are the first generation to hand over the control over our own freedom to computers. But how much freedom are we prepared to give up for the promise of total security?” stated Rise and Shine World Sales which reps “Pre-Crime” in international markets.

Heeder pointed out in a statement that it wasn’t the algorithms we should worry about, but “the social players that can use the growing flood of data algorithmically for their own goals: security, consumption, control, surveillance, »

Sci-Fi world set to ‘live long and prosper’ thanks to the Tech industry

24 April 2017 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Half a century ago we were all going to be living in mile-high skyscrapers with floating cars for transport. As the new millennium came closer, you had more chance of meeting an alien who declared, “Nanu, nanu, shazbot” as a greeting.The major inventions of science fiction have yet to happen. Warp drive, teleporting, hover cars; they all remain the prerogative of fertile minds. Or do they?

Despite what we may think, much more of science fiction’s wizardry has come true than we credit. In-ear headphones were predicted by Ray Bradbury in his seminal novel, Fahrenheit 451. Apple, for one, are finding this to be a tidy revenue stream.

It’s not the only thing Bradbury looked into the future and saw. Mankind has long held a fascination with Mars and while Hg Wells War of the Worlds seems an unlikely outcome, colonisation as foreseen in the Martian Chronicles »

California Artist Creates Billboards Covered with the Views That They’re Blocking: ‘It Took People by Surprise’

4 April 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jennifer Bolande always thought it was bizarre to suddenly see an enormous slot machine or a house-sized basket of shrimp on highway billboards as she drove from her home in Los Angeles to her getaway cottage in Joshua Tree, California. 

So when the UCLA art professor, sculptor and photographer was asked by the DesertX art project last year to come up with a desert artwork for a temporary display in the Coachella Valley, she immediately flashed on the billboards that blocked her view of the mountains along the Gene Autry Trail near Vista Chino.

‘Ghost in the Shell’ Review Roundup: Critics Delve Into the Empty Spectacle

31 March 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The new live action adaptation of “Ghost in the Shell” has been surrounded in controversy, from its original production announcement being met with confusion as to why such a beloved anime film needed to be remade, to the infamous casting of Scarlett Johansson in the lead role. But just how did the film turn out? It doesn’t appear to be as bad as many feared it would be, but it still seems to be a mixed bag among critics.

IndieWire’s Mike McCahill gave the film a B-, stating that while the film is “the shiniest of kit,” it ultimately proves to be more style than substance, explaining that director Rupert Sanders “is becoming increasingly adept at framing the kind of images any 14-year-old would deem cool.”

The Early Word On Paramount’s Ghost In The Shell Movie Is Here

30 March 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the eve of its theatrical release, the first wave of reviews for Ghost in the Shell has surfaced online and at least so far, the critical consensus ranges from good to flat-out pointless.

Staying with the more positive verdicts for the time being, below you’ll find that most, if not all review snippets shower praise on the film’s cutting-edge CGI, which brings the bustling city of neo-Tokyo to life overly well. And though it’s not necessarily a case of style over substance, the main complaint leveled against Ghost in the Shell is that Rupert Sanders’ manga adaptation is derivative of its modern-day genre peers, as opposed to being a nuanced account of Masamune Shirow’s genre-defining source material. Elsewhere, Scarlett Johansson also drew praise for her performance as Major, a best-in-class cyborg sent onto the city streets to fight terrorism head on.

What You Ought to Know About ‘Ghost in the Shell’

27 March 2017 5:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Get ready to hack the ghost.

The groundbreaking anime that lead to countless imitators both live-action and in the realm of animation, Ghost in the Shell has long been thought of as a masterpiece. With the new live-action feature lifting sequences right from the pages of Masamune Shirow’s manga, its the perfect time to ask why has Ghost in the Shell influenced so many? And despite the hotly debated casting choices, how will this new adaptation possibly live up to the legacy of its fore-bearer?

The cyberpunk series first got its start from the mind of Masamune Shirow. Shirow had been writing Manga throughout the 1980’s including one of his biggest hits, Appleseed. Appleseed had all the trademarks of Shirow Manga; philosophical, hard science-fiction stories with adequately sexualized female characters. That played well toward a Western market that was just beginning to have access to Japanese Manga and Anime in the early 90’s. When »
