As far as we don´t have a title for our upcoming action short, we´re just gonna call it Action Movie. So the first day of shooting went very well. The best thing was that we shot the most complicated scene in the whole movie. The car was chasing the motorcycle and they shot each other with an assault rifle and a pistol.
Our cinematographers Ivan and Kostya were belt up in the back of the van and shot the bike and the car from there.
To Each His Cinema (Chacun son cinéma) is a collective film of 33 shorts directed by different directors about their feeling about cinema. I liked films made by Lars von Trier, Takeshi Kitano and Zhang Yimou.
Here is a British independent studio Blue-Tongue Films. Those who visit Future Shorts or just like to watch movies on YouTube could have seen their short film “Spider”.
Except “Spider” these guys make feature films (you can watch trailers on their site) and music videos. They also shoot some shorts. I liked “Lucky”. It could be useful for young filmmakers to watch it in the perspective of how it was made.
Many people remember the first Russian j-horror “Dead Daughters”. After its release in 2007 there were two common opinions: some thought that director Pavel Ruminov was a genious and that he was the only hope of Russian cinema. Others considered him to be a self-enamoured, mentally unbalanced and mediocre. I wish more people watched “Dead Daughters” irrelative of the director.
This fall the new movie directed by Ruminov is going to be released. It’s a romantic comedy and that’s the only fact known about this movie. Even more so it’s being filmed right now.
“The Circumstances” has its blog on LiveJournal, in which one can find photos, storyboards and other interesting materials. Most of that information is presented in English.
I’ve always loved Bruce Campbell. Since the first time I saw The Evil Dead and then Army of Darkness and that TV series about Xena. And I’m glad that Bruce is going to release his new movie soon where he plays a lead role. It’s titled My Name Is Bruce. And here is its trailer.
