Fellow scribe Craig Wallwork was kind enough to add me to his collection of interviews with emerging writers. We discussed my work, rockstar fantasies, the publishing biz, and brain tumors. Be sure to check out his own excellent short stories while you’re there.

3-DVD

[. . .] real-D. the new 3-D technology. MY BLOODY VALENTINE and the others. how the hell is that supposed to work on DVD? will it be the same, the same depth and all? The whole point is trying to lure people back to theaters. However, looking toward the future, you would need a specialized […]

Reel Time

Time for a new gig. Like everybody else. Been thinking about going freelance (shooter mostly, maybe cutter). Never needed to make a demo reel before. Any ideas on what to include? Only your best work. Quality is far more important than length; it’s not a career retrospective. If there’s a type of project you’re not […]

RED With Envy

A former professor sent me an email recently about a movie shoot, and mentioned that they would be using a “Red Camera.” What is this new camera, and what are your thoughts on it? Is it a good product, is it expensive, and/or worth the cost? RED. The short answer is that it’s a brand […]

The Golden Flix Awards 2008

Forkin’ Screen

My long-awaited outing to see Synecdoche, New York (review here), was a unique experience. AMC Theaters is headquartered in my town, and they often pilot new initiatives at my local flagship complex. Their latest endeavor is called Fork & Screen, and in a changing market that finds more folks staying home to watch movies, it […]

Meth Lab for Flutie

Shamelessly pilfered from a variety of sources, here’s another collection of fake band names that made me giggle like a seventh grader. Some of these will turn up on MySpace profiles soon enough. I’d warn you about the offensive content, but I’m sure you’re desensitized by now.

Perceptive Pixel

In a time when we’re growing used to answering our cell phones by touching a screen, scrolling through picture galleries with a flick of the wrist, or enlarging them with an inverse pinching motion, it only makes sense that professional presenters do the same on a larger scale. Enter the Multi-Touch Collaboration Wall from Perceptive […]

Promo Copy Cats

Cutting through network promotions clichéd hyperbole. What they say. What they mean. The show everyone’s talking about.Everyone being those in our programming department whose jobs are on the line. It’s been a ratings disappointment despite the buzz cash we poured into ads and promotion. See the show critics are calling “X.”We doomed it with a […]
