2018 Olivier Awards: ‘Hamilton’ wins record 7, ‘The Ferryman’ takes 3

2018 Olivier Awards: ‘Hamilton’ wins record 7, ‘The Ferryman’ takes 3
Two years after sweeping the Tony Awards, Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s musical “Hamilton” did the same at the British equivalent, the Olivier Awards, on April 8. It won seven of its record 13 bids, including Best Musical. While that haul matched that of another tuner, “Matilda,” it fell two short of the benchmark set last year by the play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”

On the play side, the big winner was Jez Butterworth‘s “The Ferryman,” a dark drama about the Irish troubles, which is set to come to Broadway in the fall. It only won three of its eight races but they were biggies: Best Play, Best Director (Sam Mendes) and Best Actress (Laura Donnelly). Bryan Cranston claimed the Best Actor prize for the stage version of the 1976 Oscar-winning film “Network.” Peter Finch had won the Oscar for playing Howard Beale, a TV anchor gone mad.

‘The Frame’ Review: A Sci-Fi Miracle Among the Chaos of Indie Filmmaking

Like Christopher Nolan on a budget, writer/director Jamin Winans (Ink) creates worlds where imagination and emotion trump logic and traditional cohesion. That’s not a criticism of either man’s talents — instead it’s just to say that both place a high premium on the way their films make us feel and the ideas we’re left to mull over in our minds once the credits have rolled. Winans’ latest film, The Frame, continues that theme as it presents viewers with a beautiful, sci-fi tinged love story fueled by fate, forgiveness and wonder. Alex (David Carranza) is a criminal with a conscience, but his desire to escape the life puts a target on his back. Sam (Tiffany Mualem) spends her days saving lives as an Emt, but her lonely nights are filled with guilt and shame over past deeds. They lead separate lives where co-workers take the place of real friends, where

Unique Trailer for the Sci-Fi Film The Frame

This trailer for a new film called The Frame is absolutely captivating. It one of the most unique trailers that I've seen in a long time. The movie comes from husband and wife filmmaking team Jamin Winans and Kiowa Winans, who also made the movie Ink. Apparently they've been quietly working on the film for three years, and all we really know about it is that it's "a mind-bending science fiction mystery."

The trailer is edited together brilliantly. It's very unique and it has some really interesting visuals. I can't wait to learn more about this feature because it looks like it has some awesome potential.  The movie will be released in the fall.

Ink Director Jamin Winans Returns With Great Looking The Frame [Trailer]

A couple of years ago there was a lot of buzz circulating around director Jamin Winans' feature film Ink. I remember seeing the poster everywhere but the movie dropped off my radar completely until earlier today when I saw the first trailer for Winan's feature film follow-up.

The Frame stars David Carranza and Tiffany Mualem and besides the fact that the movie is a sci-fi mystery, that's really all we know about the project. Winan and producing (and life) partner Kiowa K. Winans are keeping details under wraps but one thing is certain: this is looking mighty fine.

I love this trailer which is both gorgeous and completely mysterious and doesn't give away any of the story (except may that aliens are involved?) but manages to intrigue. This is looking like one to keep an e [Continued ...]

First there was Ink. Now look who’s in The Frame

In 2011 we reviewed a little known, low-budget sci-fi movie called Ink. Ink’s creation was anything but typical. None of the big studios picked up the film for distribution in the Us, so Double Edge Films pitched the movie directly to independent cinemas, DVD, Blu-ray and online distribution by themselves. It was a move that worked, because Ink became one of the most downloaded movies on file sharing torrent sites (400,000 times in a single week), exposing the film to a much larger audience. If you haven't seen Ink yet, believe us, it's about time you did. It’s not always an easy watch, but at the end of the day, the world of Ink comes together like the words on a page. Ambitious, dreamlike and never less than compulsive, Ink writes its name at the very top of Independent filmmaking. You can check out our full review just here. Well,

The Creator Of Indie Scifi Hit Ink Returns With The Frame

Denver based writer-director Jamin Winans created quite the stir with his 2009 indie scifi effort Ink. Winans' debut film had ambitions worlds beyond its budget and talent to match, winning love around the world thanks to its impressive visual style and while Winans has been largely quiet in the years since he's back now, having freshly released the trailer for sophomore feature The Frame.Plot details are being kept deliberately under wraps for now but the visual aesthetic very much remains intact. The trailer is a bit of a puzzle box, hinting at quite a lot while actually revealing very little, but it's a compelling one. Check it out below....

Watch: First Trailer for 'The Frame' From Writer & Director of 'Ink'

Now this is something very unique. Some may remember an indie sci-fi film from a few years back titled Ink, about a mysterious creature that steals children's souls featuring mesmerizing visuals. Well, the filmmaking team behind Ink, husband and wife Jamin Winans and Kiowa Winans, have returned with a new project called The Frame where they've "dug even deeper" this time. They've been quietly working on this for the last three years, and now the first trailer has debuted. It's very nicely edited, a bit trippy, captivating and still mysterious. No plot details are available yet, but you might want to give this trailer a look anyway. Here's the first official trailer for Jamin Winans' The Frame, direct from their own YouTube: There is currently no synopsis or any other story details available for The Frame yet, aside from it being "a mind-bending science fiction mystery" starring newcomers David Carranza and Tiffany Mualem.

You Need to Check Out This Percussive, Mysterious Trailer for ‘The Frame’

A few years ago I was astonished by an indie trailer that showed up in my inbox like a doorstep orphan with cool visual effects. The movie was Ink from Jamin Winans, and it turned out to be a rough around the edges, modern fairytale with a fascinating palette (and, yes, cool visual effects). Winans has continued to impress with short films, but even though he had open channels into Hollywood after Ink, he decided to stick with financing projects on his own. Why? To retain final cut. And because he loves working 120-hour weeks. His style sometimes feels like a mainstream adventurer by way of Shane Carruth, but this trailer for his latest film, The Frame, looks like something David Fincher slashed together. Dark, percussive and angry, it shows off microseconds of intriguing shots without giving us the first idea of what the story is. A perfect teaser trailer. Absolutely

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

‘Ink’ Director Jamin Winans Now Building ‘The Frame’

Jamin Winans made a name for himself as a filmmaker with Ink — an impressive dark fantasy that found a balance between emotionally gripping storytelling and unique visuals. His short films haven’t hurt either. It’s fairly obvious that he’s passionate about fairy tales and genre filmmaking in equal measure, but so far there are almost no details about what his forthcoming movie, The Frame, will be about. According to an email from Winans, the project has set up a Facebook page in order to make the production interactive. The above image was taken from the page with no comment beyond “Something you might see in The Frame.” Mystery abounds. I’m currently hunting down a synopsis, but absent that, it’s a matter of climbing aboard the train bicycle of this new work based on Winan’s track record. Considering the true cult status of Ink, that won’t be hard to do for many

Ink's Orphic Tragedies: A Movie Review

Director/writer: Jamin Winans.

Cast: Christopher Soren Kelly, Quinn Hunchar and Jessica Duffy.

Ink is one of those stylish movies that succeed in breathing life to the stuff of daydreams and nightmares. Not only can this be viewed time and time again to enjoy, but also it can speak to those who love to explore the meaning of what goes on with the subconscious mind. Sometimes, the images a person receives in that state is a dark metaphor for life untamed, and it has a style that both Neil Gaiman (The Sandman) and Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) can appreciate.

With denizens from the underworld looking like well dressed ghosts donning white sunglasses, they come through as genuinely creepy. These dark lords of the Dreamtime are Incubi (with no relation to the creatures in folklore) and they are a stark contrast to the guardians of hope, better known as the Storytellers.

Ink: an overlooked fantasy gem

Released in 2009, Ink is an indie fantasy whose intricate story and unique visuals belie its tiny budget. Ryan takes a closer look at an overlooked gem…

Filmmaking history is full of stories about writers and directors who’ve gained lots of adulation from their first feature. Films such as Another Earth and Monsters have deserved every glowing review thrown their way, and their directors (respectively, Mike Cahill and Gareth Edwards) will no doubt go on to achieve similarly great things.

There’s an inevitable flipside to those Cinderella-like success stories, though, which brings us to the 2009 sci-fi fantasy, Ink. Shot for just $250,000, what writer and director editor and distributor Jamin Winans, along with his executive producer wife Kiowa, have achieved is remarkable. And yet, in spite of its obvious quality, it was overlooked by major Hollywood studios, was barely distributed in Us cinemas, and went straight to DVD and Blu-ray in the UK.

Short Film Of The Day: Spin

Why Watch? DJ as destiny. People as Rube Goldberg device. Jamin Winans came out of nowhere (seemingly) to amaze with Ink, but this is the short film that got him the attention he deserved in the first place. It’s a head-noddable exploration of the rhythm of life where editing has as big a role to play as camera work. How does everything in life work out? Apparently it’s because of a guy in a bandana lugging around twin turntables. What does it cost? Just 8 minutes of your time. Check out Spin for yourself: Spin (2005) Trust us. You have time for more short films.

Sci-fi fantasy Ink: Review

Director: Jamin Winans. Review: Adam Wing. It’s hardly surprising that I’d never heard of Jamin Winans’ mind-bending sci-fi thriller before it dropped through my letterbox, Ink’s birth was anything but typical. None of the big studios picked up the film for theatrical and home distribution in the Us, so Double Edge Films pitched the movie directly to independent cinemas, DVD, Blu-ray and online distribution by themselves. It was a move that worked, because Ink became one of the most downloaded movies on file sharing torrent sites - 400,000 times in a single week - exposing the film to a much larger audience. The UK release is brought to you by 4 Digital Media. Prepare yourself for alternate timelines and dreamlike sensibilities, because if the film achieves nothing else, Ink will at least twist your perception of reality.

DVD Review: Ink

Ink

Stars: Christopher Soren Kelly, Quinn Hunchar, Jessica Duffy | Written and Directed by Jamin Winans

Made for $250,000 and already boasting 1.6 million hits on YouTube, the independently produced fantasy thriller Ink tells the story of a father and daughter who… to hell with that, I’m not going to spoil the film for Anyone, Ink is one film that needs to be seen completely cold so that you can decide just exactly what the film is all about. What I will say is that the film is, in essence, a story of good vs. evil, or light vs. dark and sees two factions of “dreammakers” warring for humanity’s souls as they sleep – the light delivering good dreams, the dark delivering nightmares. But that is just the start.

Ink is one of those rare movies that defies true explanation, offering as it does so many interpretations. The nearest movie you could
