The Boxtrolls – Time Lapse End Credits

Check out this time-lapse film form the end credits of one of the best movies of 2014, The Boxtrolls.


It Follows – Official Trailer

After they took down the It Follows teaser I’m pleased that Radius TWC have released a full trailer. After a strange sexual encounter, a teenager finds herself haunted by nightmarish visions and the inescapable sense that something is after her.

The movie is written and directed by David Robert Mitchell, who previously made The Myth of the American Sleepover. It stars a great young cast, including Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi, and Lili Sepe.


R.I.P. Howard G. Barnes

Wake-in-FrightVeteran film, TV & radio producer Howard G. Barnes. Howard G. Barnes died of natural causes December 8 at the Motion Picture Television Country House & Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA, his daughter Christie Barnes Stafford told the Los Angeles Times. He would have turned 101 tomorrow. Barnes was best known as executive producer of the classic Australian feature Wake In Fright (aka Outback), which was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival, and considered one of the seminal films in the development of modern Australian cinema. Believed lost for decades, it was digitally restored and re-released in Australian theaters and on DVD and Blu-Ray in 2009.

Barnes began his career in radio, becoming VP in Charge of Programming at CBS Radio, later moving to CBS Television in that same role where he worked on such shows as Route 66, Rawhide and Twilight Zone. He went on to work as a talent supervisor for Ashley Famous Talent Agency where he supervised the development of The Danny Kaye Show, among others. On the film side, at Westinghouse’s Group W, his producing credits include One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovitch, Squeeze A Flower and Amsterdam Affair.
