Moon

 Category: film + tv
Posted: 2009-04-15 20:16, Edited: 2009-04-15 23:16



What do you get when you cross "Solyaris" w. "2001" you get "Moon" it would seem, Directed by Duncan Jones, starring Sam Rockwell. looks very promising indeed.

Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.

In theaters June 12th, 2009. Probably in NYC earlier.

Rumor has it Mr. Duncan will next attempt to create a little Sci-Fi noir flick based in future Berlin – Blade Runner will be his muse on this one. Can't wait to see taht one for sure.

Click through the vid to the YouTube where there are several more clips of Moon as well.

TOKYO ! The Movie is at the Sunshine

Just noticed that Tokyo was at the Sunshine Theater today, via the Flixtser iPhone app. I haven't seen it yet, but I am hoping it will be a treat, as the trailer looks amazing.

For those who have not been paying attention, TOKYO ! is a surreal triptych about Tokyo, directed by Michel Gondry, Leos Carax & Bong Joon-ho...

Che ... in Red

 Category: film + tv
Posted: 2009-01-08 14:07, Edited: 2009-01-08 17:07

For those of you who have been wondering what exactly is all the hype about the Red One, the Heckler & Koch MP5 of video cameras, we can finally get to see a major motion picture (that is, one that people can and will actually want to see...) that used the camera to it's fullest capacity.

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/redone_w400.jpg

"Che", the new Steven Soderbergh film, to be released this week, used the Red One system, and from the stills that I have seen so far, did an absolutely astonishing job.

The coloring of this film is quite nice, and incredibly realistic in a good way. Check out the interview here with Soderbergh talking about using the Red One.

Cut Master Pablo Ferro

 Category: film + tv
Posted: 2009-01-06 14:07, Edited: 2009-01-06 17:07



I caught the tail end of this in the blink of an eye a few weeks ago, and almost fell out of my chair (I actually fell over the table, but that is another story)... someone (Richard Goldgewicht) finally got the bright idea to make a documentary on the master of title sequences that we all know and love, Pablo Ferro.

Pablo was the master of the quick cut well before many in the states where doing it, and also the designer of many classic title sequences like...

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
The Thomas Crown Affair
To Die For
Napoleon Dynamite
A Clockwork Orange (and a railer too)
Napoleon Dynamite
Psycho
Men in Black
Bullitt
The Man With The Golden Arm

and many many more... have look here.

Needless to say, Master Pablo, is nothing less then iconic, even though most filmgoers have never heard his name. This documentary will hopefully change that.

Bardot A Go Go - The History of French Pop

 Category: film + tv
Posted: 2007-03-15 03:51, Edited: 2007-03-15 06:51

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/bardot.jpg

Needless to say, anyone who hangs out with me for any length of time will eventually hear me break out hours of 60's french pop records, so this movie comes as an immense thrill to hear and see. I'm not sure what started this fetish, but it probably started when seeing Claudine Longet in the The Party as a wee lad in the 70's. But I am sure it also has something to do with the vibe at DJ Franco's Vampyros Lesbos parties in the basement of some forgotten chinese restaurant in the mid 90's too...


There's been an explosion of interest in 60s French pop music by English-speaking artists in recent years. Rabid fans scramble through flea markets and vintage vinyl stores both in the US and abroad searching for records and memorabilia. Once overshadowed by British and American rock and roll, the rich and colorful history of the French music scene is emerging after languishing in undeserved obscurity.

Bardot A Go Go fills in the gap. This feature length documentary combines vintage television and film footage together with contemporary interviews with music fans, critics and legendary French pop figures like Françoise Hardy, Jacques Dutronc, Jane Birkin, Antoine, President Rosko and Jean-Marie Périer to celebrate the 'joie de vivre' of French pop music.

Helvetica ... the Movie!

 Category: film + tv
Posted: 2006-08-27 22:55, Edited: 2006-08-28 01:55

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/helvetica_movie.jpg

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives.

Looks to be a pretty interesting film, and has all the usual suspects Spiekermann, Crouwel etc. But no old clips from Max Miedinger himself. But there is Max Miedinger's nephew, Pierre Miedinger.

Renaissance - The Film

 Category: film + tv
Posted: 2006-04-09 12:53, Edited: 2006-04-09 15:53

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/S219p001.0015_1.jpg

Paris, 2054. Renaissance is a futuristic noir film, dwelling in the visual idea of light and shadows. If for no other reason, I like it for addressing the purist sensibility of black white and hell of a lot of shadows.

Long story short, it follows a typical noir type scenario, with a little more of a Blade Runner twist as it goes into sci-fi.

Filmed in motion capture, animated in 3D, rendered in flat black and white, apparently it has been in development since 1997, well before Sin City was introduced.

check it here and an article at awm here


UPDATE:
Right then, I forgot to mention that the soundtrack has LFO + Clark + Plaid + Louis Warbeck from Warp, which could make the movie all that more interesting hear as well.

Damn nice cinematography as always...

If these lines don't pull you in... "Howard gallops away on his movie horse in full cowboy regalia; fleeing from the film and his life." and "These siblings do not know about each other. That's when the real complications of this American family reunion begin..."

How Bill Shatner Changed the World

 Category: film + tv
Posted: 2006-03-05 03:43, Edited: 2006-03-05 06:43

http://www.discoverychannel.ca/on_tv/how_shatner/shatner_home/asset/8285254897870903_385_home_shatner.jpg

Join Bill, his Toupé, and his Girdle and watch how Star Trek (not exactly Bill) changed the world and set technology on a path which we all still seem to be looking for today.

A blurb from the show: "From communicator-style flip phones, to medical imaging, to space-craft propulsion, How William Shatner Changed the World reviews how the fiction of the U.S.S. Enterprise and crew inspired a world of science in reality".

I'm still trying to figure out how the iPod figures into all of this, as Bill claims in the commercial on the History Channel that it was influenced by Star Trek.... Not unless that is what Uhura was groovin' to off in her corner all that time... Uhura with iPod Shuffle here and groovin out here.

Stay tuned for the torrent, as I'm sure there will be one shortly after the show airs.

No mention of it in the US site, but check it out here on Discovery in CA.
