Construct teaser

Construct is a short film created by Kevin Margo, CG Supervisor and director of Blur Studio VFX. You at have seen some of his work in the Batman Arkham and Halo trailers, or you may have seen his previous award-winning short film Grounded. Construct claims to be “A Sci-Fi short film advancing the art of filmmaking, VFX and virtual production.” I’m not sure we fully see the metaphor in the teaser, but we do get to see some awesome effects and the beginning of what seems to be a fun story. The teaser was first presented as part of a tech demo at Nvidia’s GTC conference on March 25th, 2014 as “a work in progress intended to illustrate recent advancements in graphics hardware and software capabilities.” Watch the Construct teaser embedded after the jump.

VOTD: How Much Does Captain America Cost U.S. Taxpayers?

Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldiuer

Many a comic book movie has contemplated the emotional cost of being a superhero. You’re constantly in peril. You regularly have to put your civilian life on hold while you go battle baddies. All your loved ones are at risk of being captured by the enemy at any moment. And it can really sting when the public you’ve worked so hard to save doesn’t seem all that grateful for your help.

But then there’s also the dollar cost of being a superhero. Sure, Steve Rogers may have started out as an middle-class kid from Brooklyn. But super-soldier serums and cutting-edge equipment don’t come cheap, and — since S.H.I.E.L.D. is a government agency — we taxpayers are the ones footing the bill. So how much does having a Captain America cost the U.S., really? After the jump, a video breaks down the total price tag.

No Country For Old Men final shot

The final shot of a film is crucial. It’s the last image the viewer sees before leaving the theater, and the one with the most potential to stick in their minds about the film’s message. Some movies don’t really take it that seriously, lingering on something of little significance, or maybe just offering a simple wrap up. Other films approach the final shot with serious concern, knowing it can change the entire movie, or give the audience an opportunity to digest what’s gone before.

All of those different versions of the final shot, and many more, are on display in a new video from Devour. Starting with 12 Years A Slave, they’ve edited all the final shots from the 86 Oscar winners for Best Picture into one five-minute video. Check it out below. Read More »

Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon

Earlier this week, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham appeared on The Tonight Show where she and Jimmy Fallon discussed the fact that they both used to work at video rental stores in New York. Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon have a fun discussion about video rental store clerks and also a long discussion about their love for the 1991 coming-of-age “classic” Man in the Moon starring Reese Witherspoon and is it Jeremy or Jason London (its actually Jason). While I don’t have fond memories for this movie, I appreciate the film fandom Fallon and Dunham show in this geekfest. Watch the video clip new embedded after the jump.
