Last night, Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones shared a genuine thought on his Twitter and expended on it. As he did so, he asked his friend and Source Code screenwriter William Gibson‘s opinion, and the two men started ‘tweet-talking.’ It’s the first time that I witnessed a reflection via Twitter. I’m used to […]

Watch J.J. Abrams and Michael Giacchino talk about their career, friendship and the making of Super 8.
One of the reason I love living in L.A. is that you get to attend what still feels to me like ‘surreal’ events. In this case, it was listening to director-producer J.J.

Below is a video from the article that got me: an Exclusive peak at the Sketchbook of Black Swan Production Designer Thérèse DePrez. The […]
Being Sold is an interesting case, this is a feature that was shot in two days (?!*@#$%) and for an indecent low amount of money, especially when you look at the end result. I went on the website hoping that I would discover it was an indie drama set in a bedroom, shot handheld on a 7D […]

Posted five hours ago and edited as a mock-up of the Social Network Trailer, Harrell’s video soberly named ‘I have no title for this‘ has already reached more than 3,000 hits after 5 hours on the Net. The statement is straight […]
Look at this picture and remember this face. If you cross path with Alexis Ross*, offer him a cigarette and make him talk as much as possible, chances are you’re going to have a great time. That would be my strategy or should have been if I wasn’t a shy idiot. (alas, mother) Anyway, I […]
So Apple finally launched the much anticipated and feared Final Cut Pro X, and although the NAB presentation was exhilarating (they make it look so easy), it feels now that professionals are more furstrated than pleased by what is really an iMoviePro 1.0. The major good news is the price: $299 for FCP X compared to […]
