Warner/DC casting still not serious about female heroes? Possibly, but some online commentary on the subject is just as bad

The following is an excerpt from an article commenting on the casting of female heroes. While good intentions were expressed, I think the execution was poor. See my comments below and tell me what you thought of the original article in the comments.…

Snow Hare, an animated short about grief, is currently the #1 Feature on New Grounds!

If you have a few minutes, I would be honored if you would consider watching Snow Hare, directed by Shawn Branden. It is a touching film that addresses grief and acceptance, and I had the pleasure of scoring it a couple years ago while I…

Hello!

Hello everyone! My name is Nathanael. I'm new here to Nerd Fighters. I discovered the community via CrashCourse History, was intrigued by the concept of Hank and John's record label, and decided to give it all a try.

I'm fresh out of graduate school (I studied film scoring) and so far it has proven to be stressful, but I'm optimistic and patient. I know it won't all happen overnight (nor do I really want it to), and so I've been mostly looking for a day job which, in truth, is the…

"The interest of Early Cinema lies in the fact that many of its key features are familiar to the modern spectator." How far do you agree with this statement?



H
umans have been fascinated with the idea of capturing imagination through the medium of moving images, arguably, throughout our entire evolution, with works such as the Bayeux tapestry attempting to capture the movement of battle. With the invention of the zoopraxiscope by Eadweard Muybridge in 1879, humans got their first real taste of animated images. At…

Originalists

Jena did you know Die Hard was a book first? Nothing Lasts Forever, by Roderick Thorp, renamed Die Hard later to tie in with the movie. From what I can tell, it’s a good thing the Bruce Willis flick is not a faithful adaptation.

This got me thinking about originalists, who…

Top 5 Zombie Apocalypses OF ALL TIME

In which John counts down his top five favorite zombie apocalypses of all time, from video game zombies to novelistic zombies to vampire zombies to movie zombies to...well, you get the picture. I also talk a bit about the broader eschatological urges of humans.

Sorry I'm uploading late. I'm in Grand Haven, Michigan recording an audio version of The Fault in Our Stars. More…

Life in a [freakin] Day

Some of you may not of heard about Life in a Day, I would of hoped that you had, as it is a creation of the awesomeness that is youtube. For those of you that don't know Life in a Day is a film put together by a production company called Scot Free, but it was filmed by youtubers from all over the world on a single day- July 24th 2010. Now I'm guessing that most of you can't really remember what you were doing on July 24th 2010, well nor can I to tell the truth but I can remember what a…

Flare's First Blog Post!

Well, first night on Nerd Fighters, and already having a good time!  Well, sadly, I have to go on a 4 day trip to North Carolina in the morning, but the ipod is with me and I'm going to follow just what happens here!  But yeah......

But in the last bit, I've been in a Toku kick, watching Kamen Rider and Super Sentai the last few days, but mainly Kamen Rider.  I finished the Movie War Core trilogy and now I need to watch the Cho-Den-O trilogy, but I gotta find subbed versions. …

Thor - Is it worth the wait? Harry's Reviews :P

Thor, the eagerly anticipated comic film adaptation from the original Marvel comic, first appearing in issue 85 of Journey into Mystery in 1962, hit the cinemas earlier this week. The film, described as "development hell", had mass trouble in the development of it with eventually assigning Protosevich as the script writer in 2006. Matt Vaughn was picked as director in 2008 but then changed to Branagh later that year. But now the review:…

A Production Day

There was a time when I didn't think it would ever happen. Today, I finally got back into directing a short film.



I know I talked about this yesterday, but I was fully prepared to write a fail blog today with the excuse that nothing went right and we didn't actually shoot anything.



Not to say that everything did go well, but we still got something shot.



The real issue today was the lack of an actress. I know this was totally my fault due to my poor planning… Continue

Return To The Director's Chair

As most of you know, I've directed a few short films in my time. For example, "Taboo" (which has just recently inspired a short film currently being shot in L.A. More on that some other time) was what I consider my best directorial work thus far.



But that, believe it or not, was way back in 2007. Certainly not the last film I have worked on, but I have been working as camera, writer, editor, etc. on all these other projects. And it's not for… Continue

Why BAD trailers can RUIN films

Trailers. Trailers can be exiting, I find they are part of the whole cinema experience and I often look forward to the trailers more than the film itself. However... they can also utterly and entirely ruin an otherwise good film.



This can happen in FOUR ways. The first tends only to happen with franchises or big star movies. A prime example of this for me would be The Half Blood Prince. If you have too many trailers, and release too much information/images/general information about… Continue
