Man Details His Love Affair and Sexual Relationship with a Dolphin in New Documentary

  • VH1.com
And you thought your love life was lacking. While you try to snag coffee dates on Tinder, 63-year-old Malcolm Brenner is telling the story of his year-long 1971 romance with a dolphin in the documentary short Dolphin Lover. Yes, it’s real.

Directed by Kareem Tabusch and Joey Daoud, the short film premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival last month. It chronicles the story of Brenner, then a Florida college student, and his relationship with Dolly the dolphin. This is no Dolphin Tale — stuff gets graphic. Brenner claims Dolly came onto him. “She announced her intentions to me by positioning herself so I was rubbing against her,” he told the Mirror UK. “I started rubbing her along her back, working my way to her flukes – her tail. And as I was rubbing her and moving my hand towards her tail, Dolly was slowly rolling around her long axis.” (We’ll spare you the penetration details.

Watch: The First Footage Shot with the Blackmagic Ursa

In his dispatches from Nab this year, Joey Daoud noted the 4K Blackmagic Ursa as one of the conference’s big announcements: Ursa’s ergonomics definitely look more like a traditional Eng camera than Blackmagic’s Production cameras, but it’s got some interesting twists. First off the flip out monitor is huge – about the size of an iPad. It’s also got two touchscreens on both sides of the camera to change settings, check image, pull up scopes and monitor levels. Today our friends at No Film School drew our attention to the first publicly shared footage shot with the Ursa, though note […]

Coffee and Celluloid Looks at the Panasonic GH3

At his excellent filmmaking blog Coffee and Celluloid, Joey Daoud posted this short video review of the just-released Panasonic GH3. From the sounds of it, this seems like a great next version of the camera, with better controls, sturdier construction, Quicktime recording instead of just Avchd, and a better bit rate. You can read Daoud’s quick thoughts on the camera here and watch the video above.

Robot Builders Doc Bots High: Mad Hot Ballroom with Nerds

Robot Builders Doc Bots High: Mad Hot Ballroom with Nerds
Bots High is a film that proudly declares its geekiness, which is a promising sign for a documentary that follows three groups of high school robotics students as they develop and (literally) battle their way to a national combat robots competition in Miami. Basically, it's Mad Hot Ballroom with nerds. Lest you think this is a niche film destined to play small, though, director/producer Joey Daoud has a different distribution plan for getting his project to a larger audience. Daoud is inviting anyone anywhere to host or join a free screening of Bots High on October 6th in any venue. After the screening, Daoud and the robot builders themselves, many of whom went on to engineering programs at schools like MIT and Duke, will be ...

This Week In Trailers: The Jig, Gianni E Le Donne (The Salt Of Life), Charlie Cassanova, Bots High, The City Dark

This Week In Trailers: The Jig, Gianni E Le Donne (The Salt Of Life), Charlie Cassanova, Bots High, The City Dark
Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? The City Dark Trailer Ian Cheney may have something. I never considered the idea about living where the stars are obscured by the blitz of big city light rushing upwards,

Strategizing Your Crowdsourcing Campaign

I discovered a couple of excellent posts at the Coffee and Celluloid blog that will help you if you are contemplating or in the process of a crowdsourced funding campaign through a site like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Written by Joey Daoud, the posts chronicle his experience researching and enacting a campaign to raise $9,000 for his documentary on high-school combat robots, Bots High. The campaign was successful — he raised $9,100 — but, as always, the devil is in the details. In the first post, “How to Figure the True Cost of a Kickstarter Project,” he breaks down not only the cost of the commissions (5% to Kickstarter and about 3% to Amazon) but also the costs involved in manufacturing and distributing the various...
