Excerpt From hollywoodreporter.com ” Kevin Smith plans to release his new horror movie Red State himself, the writer-director declared at the film’s first public screening at the Eccles Theatre on Sunday night.Smith had suggested for weeks that he would hold an auction post-screening for rights to his film, but ultimately announced that he would take the movie on the road himself throughout 2011 ahead of a planned Oct. 19 release. He paid himself a token $20 for the privilege, and he hopes that the roadshow will make some of the movie’s roughly $4 million budget back.”What we need to prove is that anyone can release a movie,” Smith said from the Eccles stage as part of a long and profanity-laced speech after the movie ended, during which he championed Harvey Weinstein as an inspiration and mentor. “Indie film isn’t dead, it just grew up. It is just indie film 2.0 now. In indie film 2.0, we don’t let them sell our movie, we sell our movie ourselves.”The film will go out via Smith’s SModcast Pictures with no marketing spend, though he said that he will talk to “any smart exhibitor” about potentially showing the movie. “READ FULL

Quote From Florian Smolka “This is a university video-project made by “Game Design”-students from munich.
Done in a single-shot fashion…well almost single shot =)
The film covers different eras of the video-game history.
Took us a week to organise the various props (controllers, monitors. lighting, camera, etc.), two whole days to film and several days of postproduction.
It isn’t perfect, but hopefully fun to watch nevertheless ,)”

Mobile Suite G Gundam
G Gundam was one of the first series I ever watched, and was one of the reasons I fell in love with anime. G Gundam was created in 1994 to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the franchise. This anime is very different from the other Gundam series, which has caused it to be some what shunned by the Otaku’s of the series. The show takes place in “Future Century”, a war that is fought in which a fighting tournament is held every four years between the space colonies. Each country sends a representative Gundam Fighter to fight on Earth until one is left, and the winning nation earns the right to govern over the colonies for the next four years. G Gundam follows Neo-Japan’s fighter Domon Kasshu during the 13th Gundam Fight. He is in the fight both to win and to track down his brother, who had stolen a mysterious Gundam—the Devil Gundam (Dark Gundam in the American version)—from the Neo-Japan government. An English version was aired on Cartoon Network’s Toonami block from August 5, 2002 to more »
Ai Yazawa + Madhouse = a beautifully-rendered tale of ambition, love, friendship, angst and music. NANA, based on the long-running manga of the same name, is arguably Yazawa’s most famous work. It presents the story of two girls named Nana, who could not be more different. They meet by chance on a train to Tokyo, where sweet, naïve Nana Komatsu is moving to be with her boyfriend. She meets hardened musician Nana Oosaki, who hopes to live her dream as a singer with her band, Blast. When fate finds them looking at the same apartment, they decide to become roommates. The series follows them as they pursue their dreams, deal with romantic entanglements and become friends.
It’s Madhouse; how could the animation be anything but stunning? They have successfully translated Yazawa’s illustrations to animation, retaining her distinctive look while giving it that more »
