How Florida Lost Its Status as "Hollywood East" for Shooting Film, TV Projects - Hollywood Reporter

Fri, 03/13/2015 - 16:43 -- rprice

"I hear it every day: Producers want to come here, but they're forced to take projects to other states and, at times, rewrite them to fit those locations because of the dollar-to-dollar values," says Michelle Hillery, president of Film Florida and deputy film commissioner in Palm Beach County. So much so that Edward Stamm, a vice president at ARRI Rentals (which leases cameras and equipment) tried to get Florida politicians to pay attention as he saw ARRI's business in Miami dropping.

Langford Hotel Documentary

Sun, 01/11/2015 - 15:06 -- rprice

for almost 50 years it became the center of social activities in this small Central Florida town. Parents of Rollins College Students stayed at the Langford. Retired industrialists from New York and Chicago spent their Winters there. Air conditioning, which was a novelty at the time, made Summers bearable. Townspeople held club meetings and weddings. The Restaurant had an excellent reputation, and Mr. Langford kept the Empire Room occupied with musicians and entertainers for years, at least until Walt Disney World became a tourist destination.

The Borscht Corp.

Wed, 11/05/2014 - 16:25 -- rprice

an open-source collaborative dedicated to telling Miami stories. Through commission grants, film production, web projects, myth-making, and idiosyncratic events (including the biannual Borscht Film Festival), we redefine the stereotypically insipid depiction of our city in the mainstream media. Founded by members of the generation that came of age with the infant metropolis itself, Borscht hopes to articulate the voices of the New Miami. We believe in interdisciplinary collaboration. We believe in regional filmmaking. We believe in Miami.

Project 'Black & White' | Indiegogo

Fri, 09/26/2014 - 13:26 -- rprice

A modernized film noire detective story. Project Black and White follows the story of Terry Hensen, a private detective who is hired to help a man find his lost wife and kid. Terry soon finds himself surrounded by lies and deceit as an underworld of drugs and crime washes over him. We've worked hard to include tropes and nods to classic noire films, such as character archetypes "The hard-boiled detective", "the Mentor", "the Femme Fatale", and devices like the internal monologue, brooding jazz music etc.

Dawn of the Voxelpunks – by Noah J Nelson : LA Bitter Lemons

Fri, 06/27/2014 - 09:09 -- rprice

At the moment VR resembles video games more than cinema. Creators in that medium are already familiar with the prospect of telling stories and design experiences that live in 360°. Yet it is only in the past few years that great stories have been made by forging empathic connections between their audiences (players) and the work. Titles like Bioshock showed how a literary sense of perspective could be used to play head games with the player. Last year’s Gone Home used some of the same narrative tools in the fashion of a memory play.

Epic Class Uses Google Glass for Storytelling #WearableWednesday « adafruit industries blog

Tue, 06/24/2014 - 14:03 -- rprice

an interactive web series which follows two characters that believe the internet is becoming a conscious entity. The Glass acts as a messenger for the entity’s thoughts. The writer, Eben Portnoy, allowed for typical scripting, but also live Tweet mining during the filming. Here’s how it was accomplished. For this fictional story about characters embodying “the global brain,” student programmers Chung and Karan Chugh had to create a “machine-learning” algorithm that would automatically select real tweets that would become dialogue for the actors.
