Hey all. I hope you are enjoying the resurrection and all your eggs are accounted for. Here's what I've got for you this week.
Bloody New Digs.
This week, the Blood In The Snow Canadian Film Festival announced a new venue for its fifth edition, the heart of downtown at Cineplex's Yonge & Dundas location. I think this will suit them well, as it has a nicely sized block of theatres on the top floor with spacious lobby space for their accompanying vendor village. Blood In The Snow hits Toronto this November 24th to 27th.
So, most of you familiar with the Internet would have seen Lights Out when it went viral a few years ago. Well, it appears Warner Brothers & James Wan have given director David F. Sandberg to opportunity to turn his two-minute short into a feature.
Regardless of how this turns out, I have to give Sandberg mad props for being able to make the jump from shorts to features. It's something for which all short filmmakers aspire, and I'm glad he was one of the lucky few. Lights Out hits theatres July 22nd.
While The City Sleeps.
The videos highlighting the work of retrosynth jockeys Gunship keep coming, this newest being a clever mashup of footage from classic films such as Blade Runner, Dark City, The Crow and Escape From New York. Give it up for Maximum Black!
