Greetings everyone. It’s been a while since we’ve had an update about the film, so here’s the latest state-of-the-flick: This evening our editor finished a second assembly on the film. This is something like a rough cut, but a bit broader than that. However, with this assembly, the pieces have fallen far enough in to place that we should be able to get started on getting the film scored and start thinking about sound editing. After the next edit, I’m hopeful that we will also be able to start in on the visual effects, as I know that will be something of a lengthy process (we have to add digital aliens, robots and explosions in order to keep up with our Hollywood bigger brothers).

I guess that’s all the news for now. Check back soon to catch up with any additional progress!

Five Word Movies

This started as a little discussion on Facebook, and I couldn’t stop thinking of them. So, without further ado, here’s a list of movies (and maybe one or two TV shows), summed up in five words.

1. Oedipus, but with time travel.
2. Walking anachronism defeats undead. Boomstick! (Thanks, Isaak!)
3. Cowboy is depressed in space.
4. Iceberg somewhat damaged by ship.
5. Farmboy becomes wizard, murders thousands.
6. Awkward couple drink in Tokyo. (Thanks, Laurel!)
7. The Rock fights Cowbell Guy.
8. Child learns to shoot people. (Thanks, Sam!) (Not me Sam. Different Sam.)
9. Space robots, douche on pyramid. (Thanks, Julian!)
10. Asthmatic traumatizes son, severs hand.
11. Romantic comedy… but suddenly zombies!
12. Asshole runs newspaper, ruins life.
13. Hacker shoots people, becomes Jesus.
14. People talk a lot. Crime.
15. Archaeology, but with extra Nazis.
16. Children learn meaning of sorrow.
17. Neurotic Jew: “What went wrong?”
19. Man eats people, is upset.
20. Elder escapes Liverpudlians. Hijinks ensue.
21. Enraged woman keeps janitors employed.
22. Rain. Rain. Murder? Confusion. Rain.
23. Escapee gets rich, kicks ass.
24. Humphrey Bogart shoots a Nazi.
25. War. Alcohol. Surgery. Hilarity ensues.

I think twenty-five is enough for now. Can you guess them? (I’ll probably put up the answers eventually.)
