Ron Paul Endorses Animated Feature Film (Video)

3 April 2013 3:56 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

An animated feature film opening in Los Angeles on Friday is relying on an unusual source to bring folks to the theater: former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. The movie, called Silver Circle, is about a group of rebels who are fighting the Federal Reserve because its policies have led to out-of-control spending by the government and runaway inflation. Any politico worth their salt knows that those are issues that scream at Paul and his supporters and, in fact, Paul has known about the movie since its early inception, according to director Pasha Roberts, who first ran into

Cinema Retro Exclusive! Todd Garbarini Interviews Pasha Roberts, Director Of "Silver Circle"

3 April 2013 12:11 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Pasha Roberts is the director of the new film Silver Circle.  He obtained his masters in financial engineering, which he describes as “hedge fund math,” roughly ten years ago.  His interest was in financial digitalization and how to apply modern computer graphics to high finance. His thesis subject consisted of applying a game-like graphics engine to doing equity trading in finance so that a reasonably intelligent 13-year-old gamer could use it to learn this type of trading.  Upon doing this, he realized that what was missing from financial communications was a way of describing complicated concepts from a Ph.D level and bringing it down to a Masters level, essentially reducing the complexity and making it accessible; he did this by working with banks, corporations and think tanks.

Beginning around 2006, he began moving towards more economic-type concepts, and felt that it was important to describe things on »

Trailer: Animated Feature 'Silver Circle' (Rebels Strike Against Oppressive Federal Reserve)

3 April 2013 9:41 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Topical, in light of recent economic shifts. But maybe also a foretelling of what the future of this country (the USA) might look like in the absence of public revolt/rebellion. Essentially, a dystopian portrait of world in which an omnipotent government is the enemy that needs to be struck against. Titled Silver Circle, the animated political thriller, set in a multicultural not too distant future, is directed by Pasha Roberts from a script penned by Steven Schwartz.  "Silver Circle" focuses on a group of Underground Rebels led by the charismatic Zoe Taylor (played by Philana Mia). Under Zoe’s leadership, the Rebels outmaneuver the oppressive Federal Reserve while »

America Gets the Dystopic Treatment in New Animated Indie 'Silver Circle'

18 March 2013 1:07 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's 2019, and runaway inflation has sunk the American economy into a cesspool of sky-high prices and rampant unemployment.  A loaf of bread costs $50; bars advertise bargain deals on $90 beer Tuesdays.  "We're on the edge of tyranny, people!" shouts Jon Schaffer, a tatted-up almost-skinhead wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with 'End the Fed' as he promotes his new book, "Legalize Money."  "For thousands of years, most civilizations' money was based on silver or gold or something physical." This is the world of "Silver Circle" (March 22), a new, independent animated feature that is as striking for its unusual style as its naked politicking.  Produced by Two Lanterns Media, a small animation studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and distributed by Area23a, "Silver Circle" is the brainchild of director and producer Pasha Roberts, who started the company (originally known as Lineplot) to create 3-D graphics for financial companies and later developed a web series »

Film Review: "Silver Circle" Is Terrific

17 March 2013 5:48 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Most big screen action films feel like video games made for the theatres. The over-the-top, psychotically-edited films of most of Michael Bay’s output of late, specifically the Transformer series, can attest to this fact. While the availability of inexpensive technology that was non-existent twenty years ago has brought tools to those who wish to push the envelope and find new and different ways to tell stories, there is virtually no limit to how filmmakers can realize their vision. We have reached a point in our intake of entertainment wherein movies influence video games and music videos and the lines between these disparate forms of enjoyment are becoming ever less defined.

Video games have experienced a surge in popularity in recent years thanks in part to high definition graphics, powerful home computers and gaming systems, and the ability to play against complete strangers several miles away or across the globe. »
