HD & Zodiac
Thanks to Jamie Stuart for the heads up on this article about the development and future of HD - definetly raises some very interesting questions. Its very tech as most of the articles are but there is enough Zodiac info there to keep you interested. It's finally good to hear some praise about one of the best cinematographers out there - Harris Savides, while all the attention has been going to the new camera being used Mr Savides has been left out the limelight. Which is a shame in my opinion because with this new technology it would be easy to sub standard work, but Mr Savides has once again out done himself as we saw on the trailer! Bring on March I say!
PS. Link is fixed - thanks guys!

Zodiac Tech gets techier
Now this is really interesting. Check out the "workflow" for all the cameras and how the Zodiac movie was saved to computer. The beauty of this article is the pictures which really simply things and an MP3 interview with editor Angus Wall and tech exper Andreas Wacker.
I hope everyone get an appreciation of what the people behind the scenes have to do in order to make a movie. There is no easy job in Hollywood!
Thanks to Angus for providing this info (no relation to the Angus Wall I assume!).

Zodiac on YouTube
Check out this cool fan made Zodiac short film
I like it - creepy and full of atmosphere. Tell me what you think guys.
And in other news Variety reports our good friend Mark Bernier is underway in the "pre-production" for his Glass Houses film. Mark will direct and has written the script. Having gotten my hands on the script I can't speak highly enough of it - it's great to see aspiring artists putting out quality work and not putting out crappy horror and genre films. But Mark & the crew need financing/underwriting from either a Studio, Production Co., or private monies raised through and from investors, be they foreign or domestic, or both to get the film rolling. If you feel passionate about "good" films or are looking to get your foot in the Hollywood production door this is the perfect opportunity - please email me at email@example.com and I will put you in the touch with the right people.
