The 5 Keys to a Successful Found Footage Movie, According to Jason Blum

20 hours ago | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

There is arguably nobody who knows and understands found footage horror movies better than producer Jason Blum, who has been involved with more hits in the last few years than most in Hollywood manage in a lifetime. Blum doesn't exclusively make found footage movies (he also produced Oscar winner Whiplash), but he's certainly fond of them considering he produced Paranormal Activity, The Bay, Creep, Mockingbird, Area 51, and Unfriended, just to name a few. Blum's latest is...

Prepare to Be Scared: Ghoul Delivers [Review]

19 March 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

You've definitely seen the set-up of Ghoul before but you've never seen it quite like this and what's better, you probably haven't seen it be this effective in years.

The last found footage movie that got us all excited around here was Barry Levinson's The Bay (review) and though Ghoul is a completely different beast, something about the trailer suggested that this would be better than the rest and indeed, it does not disappoint.

Co-written and directed by actor-turned-director Petr Jákl, Ghoul starts with the typical trope of kids with cameras going somewhere. In this case, we have a group of American documentary filmmakers who hea [Continued ...] »

Daytime Emmys Look For Alternatives As Soap Bubble Bursts

25 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There are four network daytime dramas left. In a year, or two, or five, it’s conceivable there could be fewer; it’s unlikely there’ll be more.

The Daytime Emmy Awards depend heavily on the daytime dramas, both for the glamour of the actors on the red carpet and for the fervent loyalty of their fans. Without soaps, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) might still give out awards, but it would have a hard time attracting an audience to the kudocast itself, the 42nd edition of which takes place on April 26 (with the nominations announced March 26).

“To me it really depends on if there’s still going to be soap operas, because that’s the engine that drives it,” says Brad Adgate, senior vice president, research, at agency Horizon Media. “Otherwise, why bother? I don’t think they could lose another soap opera and keep the show going, »

Why the Found Footage Genre Is Broken (and How to Fix It)

28 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week, "Project Almanac" comes out in theaters nationwide. It's the tale of a group of teenagers who stumble upon a time machine and use it for their own personal gain. It harkens back to movies like "Back to the Future," with the potential hazards of messing with the space-time continuum revealed as the movie goes along. But the movie is filmed as though it is being recorded by one of the kids, in an aesthetic commonly referred to as "found footage." That's right, it's grainy and shaky and purposefully amateurish, and while the movie mostly works, it's still not enough to make you wish the movie was photographed and edited like an actual movie.

The found footage genre, exemplified by genre exercises like the "Paranormal Activity" series, has reached an impasse. Audiences are bored with it, and there's been barely any new spin on the aesthetic since 1999's groundbreaking "The Blair Witch Project. »

Or The Unexpected Convenience of Sexism: Levinson’s Perplexing but Deviously Funny Stab at Roth

Decades passed between initial adaptations of novelist Philip Roth’s novels (1969’s Goodbye Columbus; 1972’s Portnoy’s Complaint) before filmmakers like Robert Benton and Isabel Coixet mounted their own renditions to varied reception in the past decade or so with The Human Stain (2003) and Elegy (2008), respectively. After a decently received found footage horror film with 2012’s The Bay, seasoned director Barry Levinson adapts The Humbling, which, like Roth’s novel itself, initially received some of the same unfavorable notices from Venice and Toronto Int. Film Fests. But Roth’s novels are exactly the kind of difficult narratives that used to make for a tradition of daring cinema that’s been eclipsed by safety and sanitization in an effort to decrease offense and increase mass satisfaction. That’s not to say that Levinson is entirely successful »
