The Hobbit Production Repot #5 by Peter Jackson



The Hobbit movie trailer has been released recently and I just saw this production video on YouTube today. It's always great to see the behind scenes of the cast and crew, especially on those huge productions. I still remember when I first started to watch this kind of stuff when got internet at home for the first time. Star Wars Episode II On Location's where hitting the net thanks to a colaboration betwen Lucasfilms and Apple. A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away in the pre-YouTube days.

3D sound with professor Choueiri



It's great to see that people around the world is constantly inventing and re-inventing stuff. This video remembered me something I read about not so long ago, Hypersonic sound featured on some Blu-rays, at technology invented by Shoji Yamashiro the guy behind the awesome OST of anime film AKIRA written and directed by Katsuhiro Otomo. Here the official Yamashiro's page where Hypersonic effect is explained.

AMERICAN EXPRESS "My Life, My Card" directed by Wes Anderson


Video info: 
Anderson starred in and directed an American Express "My Life, My Card" commercial, which chronicled the "filming" of an action movie starring Jason Schwartzman. Anderson acts as if he is being interviewed by someone from American Express for the ad, while walking around completing tasks on set, a scene paying homage to the movie "Day for Night" by Francois Truffaut. It was aired on television and in movie theaters in both a short and extended version, during and shortly after the theatrical 2004 release of "The Life Aquatic: with Steve Zissou".
