Short Film Find Polis – Interview with Steven Ilous

What's the next big thing you would need to hear or have happen to move you guys towards a feature length expansion of Polis? -- Well, we won the competition so that is very exciting news. We are just starting the journey of making POLIS. We cant say too much but we're excited by all the support and producers involved.

One of the greatest Surf Swells of all time

These waves? What are they 30 feet? 40? The vertical is crazy. Notice that these guys aren't wearing ankle straps as they are riding? Your board would kill you if you did. Most come with releases now adays, but even so... no way. No thanks. It would drag you down into the coral for sure.

Oscar Short Film 2015 Nominees

Over the last month or so I have been making a concentrated effort of delving into the short film world. I've had the pleasure of talking with a couple of fantastic directors and have discovered there is a ton to this world of shorts I knew nothing about.

The Shining Hedgerow Maze Competition at the Stanley

I've been saying for years, and years, that the scariest, and one of the best books of all time is definitely The Shining. And the movie, with Jack Nicholson is a serious cult classic. Just a phenomenal movie. Definitely two amazing heavyweights in the world of books and movies. Redrum, Redrum.

New Serial Asia McClain Affidavit

Not that we need more evidence of Serial's absolute, and completely overwhelming hold on society, including our judicial system, but here it is all the same. Asia McCLain has filed an affidavit stating that she was with Adnan between the times of 2:20 p.m and 2:40 p.m. If you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about - please just stop reading and go listen.

My Life Sux Now Another Catfish

So there was a documentary (Mockumentary? Meme w/in a meme? Internet scam?) that came out a year or two ago called Catfish. A guy begins to fall in love online and he and his friends decide to start recording video about the whole internet side of it and the unveiling of this relationship over time. They spoke on the phone, shipped art to each other, wrote love poems. It was very sweet... and intriguing. Only glitch? The woman on the other end of the relationship was a sham.

Monty Python Reunion Dead Parrot Sketch

I'm sure you already knew that Monty Python was performing again together on a reunion tour.  But only just recently have they begun to release any of the videos from the reunion out on Youtube.  And its a riot to watch.  Not because they are better than the originals... not at all.  But because they are laughing at themselves not being as good as they used to be.

Her Story Game Interview With Sam Barlow

Right now I can't think of another game with a more innovative play technique happening. Within was interesting as an experiment.  Maybe The Witness will return us to our Myst roots too?  But those are all recognizable as "games".  Navigate the world.  Investigate your environment.  Solve problems.  Move to the next area, repeat.  But Her Story is completely different.

Short Film Find Isolated

We think it's all about the story. We honed it until we thought it was good enough. Then we figured out how to make it, and cgi was the shortest path.

Watch Black Mirror Now

Each episode is a social jab, and a very loud and in your face commentary as life as we know it today. Hackers steal brain storage drives. Political Mutually Assured Distruction flaunts itself as Performance Nihilism. Voyeurism becomes rallying cries becomes voyeurism again. Its truly one of the most cleverly written shows I've ever encountered.

Facebook A-Reel Competition Uncovered

I left Facebook a long long time ago. Alright, granted, I do have an F-book account... with one friend (my lovely wife.) but that's different. Regardless, this video is a lot of the reason as to why I plan to not use F-book ever and to not wander back to the voyeuristicness of that crazy world.

Short Film Find – Interview With A Time Traveler

Selfishly could you please tell me what happened on the corner of Main and 59th? My theory is that Paul's son died through some screw up of his. Maybe he had an opportunity to save his son and he didn't? Care to share any thoughts on that? Or maybe I should just contact Peter (writer for IWTT) on that front?
