Tron: Daft Punk Music + Poster

Check out the first release from the new TRON sound track, "Derezzed."

Tron: Daft Punk Music Montage

Trailer Park Movies | Myspace Video

Amazingly I dident love this song immediately which is kinda odd since I swallowed almost everything else that they`ve given me =D

Took a couple of repeats for it to sneak under my skin. Its still not on par with the other stuff they`ve made for the movie (I know, Ive bookmarked the songs on youtube =D) but this is also more like the way Daft Punk scoring a Tron movie would sound like I guess

Im going to the sneak peak extravaganza the suits call "Tron day" Similar to Avatar, they are going to show 23 min of footage from the upcoming movie. I sadly don't really care for the story or characters in this one. Im all in for the effects and having a good time at the cinemas. (Looking forward to watch a real 3d movie for once.. Not this up-converted crap)

The original Tron was the one to really push me into working within the CG business and is still one of my beloved, yet flawed movie that I always can curl up with after a long day or on a rainy afternoon.

The old one live on sheer nostalgic feel, the fast editing and what people thought computers looked like inside. Its was really a original tale when it first came out and had the likes of Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan to back up the light yet warm story elements..

Its light-cycle race is still, to this date, something people still recall as a genuine fun and immersive memory.. I wonder if they are even going to try and top that in the new one. I hope not, but the marketing and hollywood sense says otherwise

The new one looks to have been thoroughally upgraded into the dark and slick and the more flamboyant "reloaded" style.. Which I don't mind at all. If the rest is good that's a plus.

I've decided a long time ago that I will love this no matter what anyhoo =)

Vincenzo Natali shortfilm 1997 "Elavated"

"Elevated" is a 1997 short film directed by Vincenzo Natali and co-written by him and Karen Walton, who also participated in the writing of Ginger Snaps.

Elevated is a phenomenal short film. A true horror-thriller, it employs a simple gimmick. The entirety of the film takes place on an elevator (kind of like my other favorite movies: Cube, Hard candy, Phonebooth, Buried, Nothing). From such a simple premise a remarkable amount of tension and horror is derived, delivered by a surprisingly diverse and dramatic shooting style in addition to excellent performances. The film begins with a woman and a man sharing an elevator at the end of the day. They are going down when a building security guard joins them. Covered in blood, he commandeers the elevator and sets it to go to the very top of the building. From there a tense psychological battle joins, as the security guard—not the most trustworthy of figures with his manic, panicked behavior, tries to convince the others that going down is not such a good idea.

Watch the short here:

Watch: Exit Through the Gift Shop

If you’ve got an hour + I highly suggest you watching Bansky’s directorial debut Exit Through the Gift Shop which is airing free online because…that’s just how the internet seems to be these days.

Exit Through the Gift Shop may look and act like a mocumentary being all smoke and mirrors but it is a highly provocative mirror we look into, one that raises a ton of questions about the commercialization of art and even about the authenticity of the documentary form itself. Interesting film indeed


Mars Needs Moms

Im not a huge fan of the 3D Zemeckis, though I really am digging the craftmanship and tech that goes into the movies. The CG looks incredibly good but the characters are lacking. Boardering on "uncanny vally" alot. His "preformance capture" is really quite incredible (despite still looking overacted and the "dead-face" syndrome) and a huge step over regular motion capture, but they have yet to make me really love the characters portrayed in his movies. I am however curious about his new movie..

Walt Disney Pictures has released the first movie poster for the Robert Zemeckis’ produced adaptation of Berkley Breathed’s children’s book Mars Needs Moms. The performance capture film is being directed by The Prince of Egypt/The Time Machine helmer Simon Wells and stars Seth Green, Joan Cusack and Dan Fogler.

A young boy named Milo gains a deeper appreciation for his mom after Martians come to Earth to take her away.

This poster reminds me of something though....

FOTB 2010 Titles - Nando Costa

This year's titles for FOTB (Flash on the Beach) were created by Nando Costa through the use of macro motion pictures and materials with magnetic properties.

The choice of materials was driven by the desire to graphically represent the concepts of attraction and repulsion. The idea that graphic artists of all sorts attend events such as FOTB because they are inspired and therefore attracted to each other's work, while at the same time often competing in the same fields as peers, which represents the repulsion factor.

Clifford Stoll: 18 minutes with an agile mind

Reminds me a bit of the computer/scientist nerd from Independence day and Emmet Brown :)

I like how he calms down around 3mins which really emphasis his point. Fun guy to watch!

New Gorillaz Track, "All Played Out" Feat Daley

They've released a new track, "Doncamatic (All Played Out)," featuring UK singer Daley, which will be officially released in November.

If you were wondering, the title of the track is from Donca Matic, a japanese electro-mechanical drum machine invented in 1963. Well, so now you know =D

PS: The intro really reminds me of the opening to Futurama for some reason ;)

Listen to it here!


Banksy Simpsons Intro

I bet they will never get a artist to do another intro for them again =D Hurray for some balls!
