Computer animator Frank Wunderlich uploaded this several months ago with tags that this was “potentially” leaked footage from the set of Star Wars VII, but for those of us who saw this, we all know that wasn’t the case. But for what it’s worth, it is exquisitely done. The footage was shot in Germany by Frank Wunderlich as he arrived home. It features all sorts of cool imperial transports that he…
My introduction to Takashi Miike’s film’s was the ultra-brutal horror film The Audition. I would later go on to enjoy other films of his like Ichi The Killer and 13 Assassins (classics btw). His latest, As the Gods Will (based on a hugely popular manga) visually, seems like something I have seen before, but I’ll hold out and see if it is. It is just a trailer and, as these things go, may not be…
It’s been awhile since I first watched director Gareth Edwards alien invasion cult classic MONSTERS. But since then, Gareth has gone on to bigger and better with the release of this years Godzilla (without a doubt ,one of the best films this summer).
I wasn’t alive when L.A. was this cool, but I wish I was. It’s hard to believe, when looking at these awesome music advertisements, that L.A. or even America, was this cool at one time. But then again, there were probably some folks who ran some underground music zines at the time, that were saying “this is bullshit”. Flash forward several decades and I bet they wish things were like they were back then…now. Photographer, Robert Landau, grew up on L.A’s Sunset Strip. These music billboards were what he saw everyday and they changed quite often, but the creativity in the designs seemed to have always remained the same. Armed with a camera at 16 years of age, he decided to take pictures of these billboards starting with the billboard for Abby Road. Those photos began to grow and grow til one day, while hosting his own gallery showing of various images, folks began raving about the billboard images in particular and voila!
The images are awesome and will immediately harken you back to a time when music was good and artist i.e. record labels, were way more creative than they are today.

I really hope this film is as good as it looks. Directed by Gabe Ibanez and starring Antonio Banderas, Automata appears to be stepping out on territory that, up until now, had only been exquisitely touched by Ridley Scott’s 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner. This trailer has all the makings of a really good science fiction story, if it doesn’t start taking itself too serious and begin confusing…
I love this shit! I especially love it when classic films are mashed up with 80’s sitcom themes. This is another brilliant example of pure eighties ingenuity! Editor Robert Jones has one up’d the Star Wars/Dallas mashup, with this amazingly edited Sid and Nancy film put to the music of Growing Pains. It’s quite hilarious, especially considering how depressing this film was. Enjoy!
I submitted an idea to #projectfilmsupply . It’s a “what if” period piece, that if I get enough votes for, I will get the opportunity to do it. I’ve been harboring this dream of creating my own film for a long time and regardless of this contest I know that dream will come true, but something like this would be a great start for me and those of you who’ve helped me get this far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s the pitch: In 1969, Hollywood set designer Howard Smith is at the top of his game. Responsible for the set design on some of Hollywood’s biggest films, the world is his oyster. Then one day he is approached by two strange men wanting to procure his expertise for a film: a film with no script, no actors, but with an unlimited budget. He agrees to it and closes the deal. Then one night while watching the broadcast of a significant global event, he recognizes his set pieces are the unwilling participants in the biggest hoax of the 20th century. Howard Smith’s world is turned upside down, as the realization of his involvement sets in. He must expose the government, but at what cost? It’s a cat and mouse game as the U.S. government, hellbent on secrecy, closes in and will stop at nothing to keep him quiet.
