Live Streaming Exorcisms
Live Streaming Exorcisms
Damien LeVeck knows that in Hollywood, there are two main ways to make a feature film. You can either have a great idea, sell it to a studio and risk it turning into a completely different film, or you can have a great idea, raise the money yourself, hire your own actors and crew and make your vision into a reality. When Damien decided to direct "The Cleansing Hour," a fresh spin on the exorcism genre, he knew he had to take the latter route. Six months later and more than $30,000 raised, Damien has now locked picture on the proof-of-concept short film. Read More

Princess Kimbra: Bringing Disney Magic to Life with the Blackmagic URSA
Once upon a time, a visual effects artist and a Grammy-award winning singer got together to make music video magic and Snow White was reborn. The tale begins when Adam C. Sager, a Portland, Oregon-based VFX supervisor and director, met with Kimbra, a New Zealand-born recording artist, and decided to honor Disney for the inspiration it had given both artists throughout the years. Kimbra had just recorded "I'm Wishing," the song from the classic "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" movie, for a Disney tribute album, We Love Disney, Australia. Blending reality with Disney magic, Sager created a music video that inserted Kimbra directly into the classic animated film as the heroine Snow White and wicked Evil Queen. Read More

Beyond Disabilities
Beyond Disabilities
It's easy to look at a youngster with a disability and feel sympathy but Colin Brown looked and saw something else...hope and happiness. The Aussie filmmaker wanted to show others in his country and around the world that the youngsters who took part in the McIntyre Centre equestrian program could use their abilities to be as normal as anyone. They bonded with the horses and enjoyed themselves during their time in the saddle like anyone else. Brown's film has helped spread the word on how people - even youngsters - can rise above obstacles and enjoy life. The film has helped attract volunteers and much needed funds to continue and expand the program. Read More

Colorist Mark Todd Osborne Navigates a Child's Fantasy
"Audi TT: Reality? Check." The recent national ad campaign for the Audi TT from MediaCom, the agency behind the concept, features the iconic sports car racing through rugged terrain and busy cities alike. The spot enters the mind of a child, and as he races his toy car around a track and imagines a full-throttle adventure of challenging terrain and jaw-dropping stunts, the Audi TT achieves it in real life. Mirroring the boy's movements, the spot cuts to real life shots of the Audi TT racing on the edges of cliffs, through dense forests of tall pines, around jagged boulders and hairpin turns, as well as through the nighttime streets of San Francisco, weaving through trollies, traffic and tractor trailers.
