I’m breaking my own rule of waiting a day before giving you a movie review, but I had to write this while it was fresh in my mind. Nothing could’ve prepared me for the emotions I felt while watching Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Director Matt Reeves delivers a stellar story of human and simian will. The movie, which stars Andy Serkis as Ceaser, Jason Clarke as Malcolm, Gary Oldman as Dreyfuss…

It’s always a pleasure to roll out new work from talented friends. Some of you may remember my friend Miguel Ortega. He’s a VFX guy and professor at one of the nations best VFX schools GNOMON.  We became friends after I saw one of his films on Vimeo entitled The Green Ruby Pumpkin. It is an amazing piece! Our friendship sorta grew from there. Miguel has worked on films such as  Star Trek and…

In a brilliant marketing move before opening night of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Fox has released three short films directed by Matt Reeves that gives us all the goodies leading up to the Dawn. In a nutshell, the films gives us the low down on the Simian Flu and what it does to the human population.
These films were done in cooperation with MOTHERBOARD and are pretty good in filling us in on…

How The World Was: A California Childhood is another triumph for Emmanuel Guibert

How The World Was: A California Childhood is another triumph for Emmanuel Guibert

HTWW

This is how one should be remembered! A company should be created that pairs great artist and writers with people who wish to have their lives turned into graphic novels. In 2012, we had the extraordinary opportunity to read Alan’s War, the story of Alan Cope and his tour of duty in France during WWII. It was riveting and truly one of the best autobiographies I had ever read. Continuing in…

So it’s finally here, the trailer for the Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Sidedirected by Academy Award Winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave). If you remember, we posted a scene from this movie featuring Andre (Hendrix) and Imogen Poots (Linda Keith) and it was fabulous, but then this trailer hits and I have mixed emotions. Not because it doesn’t look good, but the scene the…

British born EDM producer Kevin Tye a.k.a The Magic Cube, is one hell of a busy man these days. In addition to finishing his palatial home studio (ground zero for his Critical Imprint Label), he’s been doing remixes for Arizona dance artists Miss Krystle, and he, most recently, teamed up with Zak Hughes on the prophetic post-apocalyptic banger DUST. As if that wasn’t enough, he spends his free…

Trailer for Dracula Untold gives us a very unique look into the backstory of a legend

Trailer for Dracula Untold gives us a very unique look into the backstory of a legend

There’s been many stories about Dracula. The real Dracula that is. My favorite being the Francis Ford Coppola film Bram Stokers Dracula, but after watching this trailer for Dracula Untold directed by first time director Gary Shore and starring Dominic Cooper (Captain America:Winter Soldier) the legend seems to have a new chapter.

In this take on the popular gothic novel, a prince, in order to…

Short film The Gunfighter is like The Assasination of Jesse James…on WEED

Short film The Gunfighter is like The Assasination of Jesse James…on WEED

I must start browsing Vimeo Staff Picks more often. This short film, The Gunfighter, directed by Eric Kissack and written by Kevin Tenglin is a brilliant comedy! The story is a spoof, of sorts, to some of those Ken Burns documentaries and other History Channel goings on, where there’s always narration to a dramatic historical reenactment.

In The Gunfighter, an unseen voice narrates a “Ballet of…

Keith Alan Mitchell - “This Clumsy World” Review

Keith Alan Mitchell – “This Clumsy World” Review

KAM Cover1400x1400

I recently was sifting through my old high school stuff, and came across one of the most important items of my childhood. Torn at the edges, I found my old, stolen copy of On The Road which I took from my school’s library. It made me realize how eventful and quickly life can change, and although on my first read, I hated it, it eventually made a lasting impression on me that I still look back…
