Satellite | VOD Review

Eight years after its festival debut, the lo-fi drama Satellite, chocked with obscure Indie band gems and unlikely romantic gestures is now available. Giving bad press to a tiny film with a lot of heart is taxing, but there are enough successes in the sometimes shoddy romantic fable written, directed and edited by Jeff Winner to give a review in good conscience. Unlike his equally under-financed You Are Here (2000), the sophomore feature from the Nyu filmmaking program graduate has a few vaguely recognizable actors and will presumably reach a sizable audience. Satellite made its festival rounds in 2005, winning Special Jury Prize at the Madrid Film Festival after a world premiere at Tribeca. At long last, the indie feature was made available on iTunes, Amazon and VOD earlier this month.

The love story begins when Ro, played by the boyish gap-toothed French model Stephanie Szostak, follows a pouty-lipped stranger to a Southwestern themed Brooklyn bar.

Sdcc '09: The Winner Sisters at Comic-Con

  • Starlog
Quite a few people have a story in the back of their minds, but there are few who actually sit down to write their brewing ideas into a novel. At only twelve years of age, with a little help from their father, twin sisters Brittany and Brianna Winner not only turned themselves into bona-fide authors with The Strand Prophecy, but became the youngest multiple award-winning writers in America, with their own booth at this year’s Comic-Con. The story is of a superhero, whose name shares the book’s title, and his quest to battle a sudden evolutionary shift in human DNA even as he himself struggles to remain human despite his machine side that allows him access to the full potential of the human mind. It’s more sophisticated storytelling than you’d expect from such young girls.

Yet, the genesis of this project emerged from self-doubt. Fourth grade
