Videoblog entry re: sending tape via ravens, from star of upcoming sci-fi/slice of life 2 Week indie film The Screening

Reid Gershbein, one of the founders of the 2 Week Film Project, will be in NYC around 8/26 for a screening, & several weeks ago I said I would make a 2 Week film in October, but since Reid will be here this month, I am moving my 2 Week film to August - will make the film during the last two weeks of this month. Working title is The Screening, and it is a sci-fi/slice of life film (possibly a drama, with some comedy) about a filmmaker from California who comes to NYC to show a movie & then experiences unusual events. This will get me ready to finish making Brooklyn Fantastic in September. Here's a little bit of The Screening star, recording a video from "the rainforest":

Silent Ozu review at Cinematical

Found both the DVD set (3 DVDs from Criterion) & Cinematical's review of the movies (here) today - check 'em out, looks very interesting - made in the late 1920's & early 30's - three films by Yasujiro Ozu - Tokyo Chorus, I Was Born, But..., & Passing Fancy. Adding them to my "watch soon" list - along with, as we all know - G.I. Joe :), Beeswax, & Season 6 of Stargate SG1. Also need to see Lake Tahoe.

Criterion's got an interesting "watch movie online for $5, get $5 off the same movie on DVD" deal

This may be old news for some, but I just learned about it - check out all the info. at Criterion's site. Here's a quote from the site/their FAQ page:


21. I’ve never watched a movie online at the Criterion online cinematheque. How does it work? What does it cost? What do I get?

Watching movies at is easy. Click on FILMS, choose a film, and click where it says “Watch movie $5.” You’ll be asked to enter a credit card, and for $5 you can watch the movie right in your browser or full screen, as many times as you want for a full week. For a year after that, we’ll keep a $5 credit on file for you and apply it to your purchase of that film on DVD or Blu-ray disc. Use it as a way to explore different parts of the collection, get a little daring, or just “try before you buy.” And best of all, each dollar you spend on online rentals gives you points in our loyalty program.
