1- Awesome People Hanging Out Together. The title says it all, and this fairly new tumblr (november 2010) that really exploded this summer in terms of content, won’t disappoint you. It talks to both the dreamer and the voyeur in us and offers a fair share of old and unknown pictures that always makes me […]
A four-minute long trailer for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo just popped on the Net and we, Larson’s geeks, are very happy about it. It’s a weird feeling to watch a long trailer of a story I’ve already read and watched and it felt like a 10 minute video, not in a bad way, […]
I believe my ridiculously long title says it all. Terrence Malick, Christian Bale and their team have been seen and filmed working on a mysterious project at the Austin City Limits Music Festival and some brave fans took on them to film them at work, which is simply awesome. (no argument possible here) As seen […]
Introduction word about MISFITS for filmmakers: I love this show on all levels (scripts, acting, cinematography, directing), everything hooked me from the very first episode, but the fact that the cinematography and the directing play a key role in the show is what seduced me from the first image. It’s rare to watch a show […]
Yes, you read the title correctly. And disturbing it is. In 1964, at a time when filmmaking was still an art limited to few lucky men and when shooting a movie could only mean using good old film and the Studio System, Alfred Hitchcock, already the master and reference he still is today, explained why […]
Blue-Bolt, the company that did the visual effects for the first season of Game of Thrones released a making-of of their work. Unsurprisingly, a lot of work was performed in post-production for the HBO show. As seen above, a lot of shots show actors working with fans and blue-screen, later transformed into fantastic settings. It […]
In 1960, still relatively unknown director Stanley Kubrick wrote a fan letter to Ingmar Bergman, expressing his gratitude for the Swedish director’s work that ‘have moved [him] deeply, much more deeply than [he has] ever been moved by any films‘. Reading this typed letter, where one major director shares his admiration to another with its typos […]
Apes Will Rise: Serkis Talks About How He Prepared For Ceasar and VFX Team About The Creation of Apes
After the second trailer piqued my curiosity, I went to see The Rise of The Planet of The Apes and did not regret it one second. It is a great action movie that will ‘wow’ you visually thanks to stunning special effects and action scenes, and that also has a solid story with a powerful […]
Hard to know if the Youtube video will stay online or be shut down, but for now, here is the look at the first images of Fincher’s Girl with Dragon Tattoo. Lisbeth/Rooney is barely seen, but it gives a good feel of where this is going visually, that is, in the same tone that the […]
