Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.
For further reading/viewing, I highly recommend:
Andrew Osmond’s book “Satoshi Kon: The Illusionist” (my major source) amzn.com/1933330740
Kristin Thompson’s essay on match cuts & graphic matches bit.ly/1x960Em
And this tumblr with an excellent name fuckyeahsatoshikon.tumblr.com/
For sheer directorial craft, there are few people working today who can match David Fincher. And yet he describes his own process as “not what I do, but what I don’t do.” Join me today in answering the question: What does David Fincher not do?
In drama, two characters walk into a room. Each wants something from the other. The question of the scene is: who gets what they want?
This is a freebie and a thank you to everyone watching the channel. Enjoy.
Ok guys check this out!

Share the spine tingling sensation that Halloween brings through a good scary book and spread the creeping feeling of horror to the readers on this eventful night…they may find themselves afraid to be alone!

Watch the full 12 minute film Oct 19: philips.com/ambilight
Presented by Philips TV and Atomic Skis
Featuring: Pep Fujas, Eric Hjorleifson, Daron Rahlves, and Chris Benchetler
From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering.
Filmed as a partnership between Sweetgrass Productions, Philips TV, and the Swedish Agency Ahlstrand & Wållgren, it’s two parts creativity, one part branded content, and a pinch of masochism for good measure. Overall, it’s an incredibly unique partnership between our vision of skiing and the color and light technology behind the Philips Ambilight TV.
Supported by: Atomic, Freefly Systems (MOVI), NiteRider, Golden Alpine Holidays, Alyeska Resort & Talvista Lodge.
Shot on location at: Golden Alpine Holidays Sentry Lodge, Alyeska Resort, and the Alaskan Wilderness
