Tron: Legacy Trailer

I don’t know a lot about this upcoming movie, but I remember the original and its cool, ahead-of-its-time SFX, and some amazingly trippy ideas. Before video games got serious, Tron made them epic in a way that changed our perspectives on the digital world and created a mainstream example of the cyber-punk genre. Today, we are putting up a high quality trailer of its sequel, thanks to Neutralx2, our neighbor site for video game and PC related news and reviews. Here’s his opinions on it:

I posted the Tron Legacy Teaser a while back, but that was more of a visual effects test. Now we have an actual trailer to look at. I cannot wait to see this film. Hopefully it will go over better with audiences today then the first film did back in 1982. Also, I have to say that I like the direction Daft Punk is taking the music. It is a departure from the original’s music, but this movie looks darker and grittier, and the music reflects that well. ~Neutralx2

Here’s the vid, and boy oh boy look at how tight it is! Those effects are lightyears beyond the original, while still maintaining its original artwork. I am honestly very excited to see this in 3d, and haven’t wanted to see a 3D movie since Avatar.

The Funny Oscar Vids

Rather than rant and rave about my feelings on the Oscars (if you’re my friend on Facebook you can look up my statuses) I’ll just post some of the funnier moments I saw, you know the actual entertainment portions…the funny clips.

And I don’t mean Barbara Streissand’s obnoxious introduction the Kathyrn Bigelow’s victory. While it was decently deserved, we didn’t need a precursor announcement, Barb.

Anyways, here we go.

Best Crack at Avatar Ever:

Be sure to look at James Cameron’s face. I think he’s coming to realize that makeup might have been a better choice than CG…or not.

Paranormal Activity doesn’t even describe the goings-ons between these two.

This is what happens when indy horror movies are taken over by big budget stars– they just can’t take the material seriously.

This won’t top last years, but just in case anyone wanted to see it, here’s the intro.

But I still prefer this:

Better quality here:

In the end, this year’s Oscars was only so so, but hell, I’d pay money to see Ben Stiller as a Na’Vi in the sequel. Get in touch with your agent, dude. Cameron- get in touch with your casting director.

That’s right, folks! Just two more days until the world-wide internet premiere of CLARITY.

Where is she?

In just two more days the mysteries will be solved...

The trailer is also now available on Facebook, and please join our new group through the social network everyone seems to be on!

Be sure to be the first to see it here, and comment on it’s film page, currently hosting the trailer in High Quality.

I’m gettin’ shivers just waiting for it to come out! Aren’t you? Leave some love in the comments!

Today’s update is a simple one, more of a production update than anything.

There’ll be a video up eventually to show the video project I worked on over the summer.

As well as maybe a clip from the stunt show I was in!

JASPER CONROY 2 is currently in pre-production, steadily getting complete. The screenplay i about half done, and the props are being made as we speak. We also have a special effects guy on the team now, from Redwolf99 on YouTube. He’s also re-working the special effects of Part 1.

Also, a friend of the site and member of Future Film Makers, Tom Murphy, is working on a short which I am producing, called “The Punching Bag”. Casting is almost done, screenplay is wrapped, and locations are about to be scouted.

Mike Woodard, creator of Bride and friend of the site, has been busy at work on a new series: Death Makes Fools of Us All. Here’s that vid:

The rest of the club is busy producing, I am working towards my big project for next semester. Life is goin’ pretty good! Bout ready to catch up on my Martial Arts documentary as well.

More updates soon to come!

Future Film Makers, a club I’ve ran at Salisbury University for the past few years, has wrapped filming and production of its first Feature Film, BRIDE, written and directed by Mike Woodard. I act as producer on the project, and group favorites Thomas England (Man of Action) and James Howe (Gullman, The Spy Wars series), costar in it along with. Steve “Siggy” Young is also a huge part of the production, playing the villainous Professor.

The story is about Cory Hertz, a sophomore at Salisbury University who begins a research project that will change his life forever. Investigating the tragic disappearance from school over a decade ago of the long lost student, Mea Bridell, Cory uncovers a plot of love, obsession, and revenge that leads him on a chase to discover her fate. With his reluctant but faithful friend Douglas in tow, the two spiral down their own path of madness, reaching for the truth until they finally encounter the dangerous person and the malicious grudge that rendered a young love to it’s bitter end.

The finished film will be premiering in Salisbury sometime in October (probably around Halloween) and possibly double featuring with Strike a Pose Films!!! Classic, Curse of Bodangofish.
