The Best B-Movies of the 21st Century

26 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The constant big-budget movie releases with their A-list stars, state of the art technology, and expensive advertising campaigns can make it easy to forget that most of the movie industry just doesn’t have that kind of money. Most filmmakers are working with limited resources, yet producing films that are in many cases better than those big money movies. Other filmmakers work with even less, producing films that, in the end, are often relegated to the more obscure cable channels and the bargain bin at Amazon. B-movies have been called Hollywood’s stepchild, but what they really are is its life blood.

Only a few of these films make money, but they have a greater value than simply being good for business: they are good for filmmaking. With little money, no stars, scripts that are disjointed, and often featuring poor production values, the B-movie is the primordial ooze from which new talent and ideas crawl. »

John Pilger film breaks Indiegogo record

13 February 2015 7:26 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Coming War will tell the unreported story of the new “Cold War” between the Us and China.

Crusading journalist John Pilger’s new feature doc The Coming War has raised close to $110,000 (£72,000) on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. This represents a record for a UK documentary on Indiegogo.

The campaign for Pilger’s doc was launched on December 10 and closed on January 18, by which time it had raised 120% of its £60,000 goal.

The Coming War will tell the unreported story of the new “Cold War” between the Us and China.

Solution to shrinking finance

Miranda Fleming, head of film UK at Indiegogo, highlighted to Screen the increasing importance of crowdfunding to independent filmmakers in Europe.

“They (independent filmmakers) need finance, not just subsidised finance. There needs to be a solution to the shrinking finance of indie film,” she said.

“In America, they picked up on crowdfunding very quickly because they don’t have subsidised sectors in film.”

Now, Fleming »

Funds, Financiers, Filmmakers Stand by Freedom of Speech in Europe and Beyond

13 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As France still reels from last week’s Charlie Hebdo slaughter and its aftermath, which left 20 dead in total, there is no indication of a new caution at Europe’s funding sources, though it is far too early to gauge official reactions.

Indeed, the Charlie Hebdo slaughter may well prompt a slew of films analyzing the issues it raises.

“Did Hollywood stop making terrorist movies after 9/11? On the contrary,” said Nicolas Brigaud-Robert, at Paris-based sales agent Films Distribution.

But it is one thing to finance and make films, another to screen them.

“What happened shows that these people are not joking. There is bound to be some change after the killings,” said one foreign distributor.

“I would think twice before buying a militantly anti Islamic fundamentalism film, in part because I don’t think some exhibitors would screen it,” he added.

After a crazy first trailer [see here] and two even crazier clips [see here and here], we now have a new featurette for director Timo Vuorensola’s Iron Sky: The Coming Race, which explores Pixomondo’s work on the follow-up to the crowd-funded hit cult. Check it out here…

Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war, but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity – or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race and their army of dinosaurs.

The post VFX featurette for Iron Sky: The Coming Race appeared first on Flickering Myth. »
