Jessica Conditt: "Virtual reality was the belle of this year's Sundance Film Festival. Immersive exhibitions displayed on face-hugging headsets told powerful stories in lifelike worlds, in 360 degrees and with the viewer in control of the camera. [ ... ] But, now, the buzz is fading and a question remains: Do filmmakers in Hollywood think that virtual reality is the future of cinema?"
Eric Hynes: "In 2014, most every filmmaker knows that it’s important to build a website for your project. But how many of us know enough about programming or design to create a site that serves as a fitting representation of the project, let alone one that functions as a tool for both marketing and audience building?"
Adam X. Smith: "Lots of media relies on our nostalgia for something we remember from when we were children, and no matter how well or how badly it is executed, the tactic often works for one pretty good reason" ...
Gus Lubin: "Is 3D movie technology a money-making gimmick or a true innovation? The answer is a little of both. Some movies use the technology to create more wonderfully immersive scenes, but others do little with the technology or even make a movie worse."
Paula Bernstein: "When we think of immersive storytelling, Delorean time machines and grownups dressed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles don't usually come to mind. But that's the case with New York-based BBQ Films" ...
Maria Popova: "Read by Terry Burns and featuring an appropriately haunting score from the young British composer Lennert Busch, the film belongs to — pioneers, perhaps — an emerging creative genre: the cinematic poem."
Adam B. Vary: "It is already one of the most peculiar and elaborate transmedia marketing efforts ever mounted for a feature film franchise, and as more elements from it continue to roll out in advance of Catching Fire’s Nov. 22 release date, here is what you need to know about what’s behind it."
Randy Finch: "If you're not familiar with the term "transmedia" - or you're skeptical about the existence of a changing paradigm for motion pictures that includes evolving multi-platform techniques for storytelling (including, for example, salting the internet with evidence of a storyworld from which a new film is emerging) - then you're probably not going to appreciate the interview with Jeff Gomez that appeared on July 18th, 2103 in the Business Insider."
"Welcome to the first Transit blog post of 2015! We thought we'd start the year off casually with a light-hearted quiz that combines two very different modes of storytelling ... the emoji and the feature film."
[A fun quiz that tests your knowledge of New Zealand film.]
Frank Rose: "Summer is now officially over, and for Hollywood the results were not good. No, the industry didn't suffer a repeat of the string of debacles that hit last year, when one mega-budget picture after another—White House Down, The Lone Ranger, Pacific Rim, Turbo, R.I.P.D.—unceremoniously tanked. In fact, the news was actually worse."
Celluloid Liberation Front: "As part of the Berlinale Talents creative summit earlier this month, Irish director Neil Jordan (who created the Showtime historical drama "The Borgias") and Hollywood producer Martha De Laurentiis ("Hannibal"), the widow of the late legendary producer Dino De Laurentiis, spoke about the differences between working in film and television."
Russ Burlingame: "There are few comic book movies that fans will go into with less information than I, Frankenstein; the film was written by Kevin Grevioux and Scot Beattie and adapted to a graphic novel from Grevioux’s first-draft screenplay."
"Think assigned seating and table service are the future of the movie theater? Think bigger. Andrei Severny argues that what we now call "movie theaters" will soon be theme parks of the mind - but storytelling is here to stay" ....
Film4 Team: "In a UK first, A Field In England was released on UK TV, in cinemas, and on Blu-ray, DVD and VoD simultaneously on Friday 5th July. So what happened?
