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": :: ADVERTISEMENT Alfonse Maiorino - Italian Genealogy, Public Strategy Group, & more! - http://alfonsemaiorino1.blogspot.com/ Blogger: User Profile: alfonse maiorino http://www.blogger.com/profile/01850766319936497029 Alfonse Maiorino / Al Maiorino blog -  almaiorino .blogspot.

SGU looks a lot like BSG

The camera work, the HD look, the scruffiness, focus on survival - all reminds me of that other sci-fi action fave of recent years: Battlestar Galactica. Here's the teaser trailer for the latest Stargate show - Stargate Universe: ::  :: ADVERTISEMENT Alfonse Maiorino - Italian Genealogy, Public Strategy Group, & more! - http://alfonsemaiorino1.blogspot.com/ Blogger: User Profile: alfonse maiorino http://www.blogger.com/profile/01850766319936497029 Alfonse Maiorino / Al Maiorino blog -  almaiorino .blogspot.com/ Alfonse Maiorino - Linkedin http://almaiorino.blogspot.com/2012/04/al-maiorino-linkedin.html New Projects COMING SOON at: Alfonse Maiorino blog 2 http://alfonsemaiorino2.blogspot.com/2012/04/blogger-user-profile-alfonse-maiorino.html Alfonse Maiorino blog 3 http://alfonsemaiorino3.blogspot.com/2012/04/blogger-user-profile-alfonse-maiorino.html Alfonse Maiorino blog 4 http://alfonsemaiorino4.blogspot.com/2012/04/alfonse-maiorino-bl

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. :: ADVERTISEMENT Al Maiorino - Italian Genealogy, Public Strategy Group, & more!

Beeswax looks as exciting as G.I. Joe

A little bit less explosions maybe, but, watch out G.I. Joe, now there seems to be competition for my movie watching $s & time this weekend. Here's the Beeswax trailer:

Controlling who gets to review the movie is half the battle

G.I. Joe is at 75% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes right now . Looking forward to checking this movie out.

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: "ONLINE 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 criterion.com 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.
