Peter Jackson is part of this small club of directors that made it thanks to his pure love for movies and unstoppable determination. Before being known for the director/producer who put New-Zealand on the entertainment business map and gave justice to Tolkien’s written work, Jackson was just a cinephile with a bunch of ideas, a […]
If sound is a major component in films, it is often taken for granted by the audience (and overlooked by filmmakers). The power of sound is phenomenal, as it is one of the few universal tools we have to tell a story, and fascinating, as it plays on a very subconscious level. Michael Coleman, who was […]
Freelance editor and motionographer Evan Seitz freshly posted his latest animation, ABC Cinema, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this was to be the new trending video for the days to come. (It had 699 views when I watched it, let’s see how fast and far it will go.) In less than a minute Seitz built […]

You can buy the documentary via Amazon and iTunes, or download it for free on […]
Director Francis Ford Coppola talks for Meyer Sound about sound, its evolution over the decades and how it has always played a key component in his filmmaking process: ‘We owned our mixing facilities and we were able to have control of the sound. By doing that we were able to give our film a tremendous […]
Artist and humanist Moby has launched the website mobygratis, apparently as early as 2007, a site where students and independent and non-profit filmmakers can download and use some of his music for free. (If the film of video is commercially used, then a license needs to be used and the profit generated is distributed to the humane […]
Superstar composer Danny Elfman is quite a character, and a rather pleasant one that is, at least when it comes to talk to an audience about his relationship with Tim Burton. That’s what he did at the LACMA along with Costume Designer Colleen Atwood and Animator/Art Director/Producer Rick Heinrichs. These three long-time collaborators of Burton […]
