Fantastic Fest ’14 Recap

23 October 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

My first journey to Austin, TX and the geek holy land of Fantastic Fest was a whirlwind. Book ended with exhausting, 14 hour drives, the trip as a whole was just mind blowing, inspiring, and so much fun. Bonding with new and old friends, finding some of your personal heroes in the crowd to say hello and snap a picture with, and being able to brag about seeing things before anyone in the rest of the world is but a fraction of the magic. There’s also the Alamo Drafthouse itself which was the newly renovated flagship South Lamar location. This place was like a dream come true for me! The sound system and picture quality in every theater was among the best I’ve seen outside of an IMAX, and every movie was extremely loud like they should always be. There was an amazing swarm of a wait staff to »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Four

The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today

40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part One

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What do film directors Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Agnès Varda, Robert Wise, Fred Zinnemann, Luis Buñuel, Alain Resnais, Roman Polanski, Sidney Lumet, Robert Altman, Louis Malle, Richard Linklater, Tom Tykwer, Alexander Sokurov, Paul Greengrass, Song Il-Gon, Alfonso Cuarón, and Alejandro Iñárritu have in common? More specifically, what type of film have they directed, setting them apart from fewer than 50 of their filmmaking peers? Sorry, “comedy” or “drama” isn’t right. If you’ve looked at this article’s headline, you’ve probably already guessed that the answer is that they’ve all made “real-time” films, or films that seemed to take about as long as their running time.

The real-time film has long been a sub-genre without much critical attention, but the time of the real-time film has come. Cuarón’s Gravity (2013), which was shot and edited so as to seem like a real-time film, floated away with the most 2014 Oscars, »

Catalonia’s Sitges Fest to Honor Roland Emmerich

1 July 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Announcing its first heavyweight creative presence at Spain’s Sitges Festival, L.A.-based scribe-helmer-producer Roland Emmerich, director of “Independence Day,” “2012” and “Stargate,” will receive the Grand Honorary Award.

The 47th Sitges Intl. Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia’s Spanish line-up – one of its key attractions since Spain burst onto the world’s genre scene in the late 1990s – includes Jaume Balaguero’s already-announced fest opener “[Rec] 4: Apocalypse,” the anticipated ’50 Spain-set “Shrew’s Nest” from Esteban Roel and Juan Fernando Andres and produced by Alex de la Iglesia and Sergi Caballero’s Rotterdam Fest competition player “The Distance.”

Also announced Tuesday, the Sitges Festival, Europe’s leading genre confab, will bow section Blood Window in a link-up with Buenos Aires’ Ventana Sur, as recognition of the burgeoning vibrancy of the Latin American genre production.

As film financing dwindles in Spain, Sitges will team with “The Impossible” producers Apaches Entertainment »

Eiff 2014: ‘Fish & Cat’ is Iranian unease filtered through one seemingly unbroken shot

22 June 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fish & Cat (Mahi va Gorbeh)

Written and directed by Shahram Mokri

Iran, 2013

The narrative, as it were, of Fish & Cat is told through what appears to be one long, continuous roving shot lasting over two hours in length, in the mode of cinematic experiment popularised by Aleksandr Sokurov’s Russian Ark in 2002. It employs a time-warp motif for the conceit, doubling back on what it has previously shown, either immediately before or sometimes much earlier in the film, to focus in on new topics. Additionally, while single-take experiments like both Silent House horror features may follow a lone protagonist venturing through a given locale, Shahram Mokri’s film crisscrosses between multiple characters across a fairly large plain, weaving its way through both the present and flashbacks while still under the guise of a sustained real time shot, even as space-time paradoxes become something of a regular feature.

Is 'Birdman' a one-shot 'magic trick' that could win Chivo Lubezki his second Oscar in a row?

20 June 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After landing nomination after nomination without a win, cinematographer Emmanuel "Chivo" Lubezki finally claimed an Oscar a few months ago for his jaw-dropping work on Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity." But it wasn't just the technical prowess of the accomplishment that landed him that spotlight, conceiving of new technology to tell the story Cuarón wanted to tell and making it all work so well with the visual effects on display. It was also the drawn-out, patient takes, which Lubezki and Cuarón had been playing with ever since "Y Tu Mamá También" over a decade ago. All of that went toward an identifiable style that became the visual trademark of the movie, and the result was a much-deserved Oscar. But if the word on Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" is true, then Lubezki could very well be in line for his second in a row. I was speaking with someone last week »

Godzilla 2 Becomes a No-Brainer for Legendary and Warner Bros

20 May 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

If you haven't already caught the monstrous mayhem that is Gareth Edwards' 'Godzilla' in theatres this past week then we suggest you get down there as soon as possible. In its first weekend the blockbuster managed to take in an impressive $196.2 million worldwide and so of course Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are very keen for work to begin right away on the sequel. And now that an official 'Godzilla 2' is in the works it is assumed by most that British director Edwards would helm again for the follow-up having made such an excellent job the first time around. 'Godzilla' stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson ('Kick-Ass 2'), Bryan Cranston ('Breaking Bad'), Elizabeth Olsen ('Silent House'), Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins ('Made in Dagenham'), David Strathairn ('Lincoln'), Ken Watanabe ('Inception'), Richard T. Jones ('Event Horizon'), Patrick Sabongui, Yuki Morita, »

‘Godzilla’ Interview: Elizabeth Olsen Talks About Her First CGI Experience

15 May 2014 3:57 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Elizabeth Olsen has gained quite a following quite rapidly – and not just because of her famous last name (yes, the Olsen Twins are her sisters). The young actress has come up through the ranks of some impressive indie films (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Kill Your Darlings), bold genre fare (Silent House) and some films by acclaimed directors (Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake). Despite all that good work, it’s only now that her career is truly about to shift.

Olsen is making the jump to blockbuster movie starlet, headlining Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla reboot this summer, before entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Age of Ultron, where she’ll play the iconic (and “Click to continue reading ‘Godzilla’ Interview: Elizabeth Olsen Talks About Her First CGI Experience

Interview: Michael Lacanilao and Building a Modern Myth

9 May 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I spoke with Michael Lacanilao, the creator of the clever Stairwell video that’s been making the Internet rounds, about short-form filmmaking, YouTube videos, and realism. You can support Michael’s project via his Kickstarter page.

Neal Dhand: Your film is, in so many ways, a product of the YouTube generation: short attention spans and immediate payoff. How much of that informed the length and structure of the film? Did you feel that you needed to have a “reveal” or “surprise” early in the video in the event that some impatient viewers might not make it to the end?

Michael Lacanilao: We actually decided not to worry too much about hooking the audience in early. We simply asked: What would a university science show look like, and how would this particular episode, which happens to feature the endless stairwell, unfold in actuality? The conceit is that a brilliant »

Marvel Studios made an information dump tonight with its primetime TV special Assembling a Universe, which detailed the company’s industry-revolutionizing interlocked film franchises. But it’s not like them to leave fans without a treat.

As Avengers: Age of Ultron revs into gear, the special revealed new concept art for some longtime fan-favorite characters: the Scarlet Witch, featured above, and her brother, Quicksilver, featured below.

International 'Godzilla' Trailer Debuts!

18 March 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

As we collectively hold our breath in anticipation of the bad-assery that will more than likely be Gareth Edward's feature film Godzilla on May 16, today Warner Bros. and Legendary have released a new international trailer for the film. Could it actually feature Rodan? Check it out, and pay close attention at the one minute, nineteen second mark, which contains a look at a rather familiar shape.

Based on director Ishiro Honda’s 1954 original of the same name, the 2014 Edwards-helmed Godzilla stars Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Juliette Binoche (The English Patient), David Strathairn (The Bourne Legacy), Elizabeth Olsen (Silent House) and Ken Watanabe (Batman Begins), in a script by Max Borenstein, Dave Callaham and Frank Darabont, which pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Bryan Cranston Shines a Light on New Godzilla Still

11 March 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Perhaps it doesn't reveal an awful lot but we all know that both 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston and Gareth Edward's upcoming large lizard rebirth of 'Godzilla' are two of the coolest things around at the moment. So this somewhat mundane new pic from the Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures production set to hit theatres this May suddenly becomes automatically awesome by association. 'Godzilla' and Cranston are also joined by the likes of Aaron Taylor-Johnson ('Kick-Ass 2'), Elizabeth Olsen ('Silent House'), Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins ('Made in Dagenham'), David Strathairn ('Lincoln'), Ken Watanabe ('Inception'), Richard T. Jones ('Event Horizon'), Patrick Sabongui, Yuki Morita, Brian Markinson, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, C.J. Adams and Ken Yamamura ('The Wolverine'). Head below for the snap. »
