An addendum to the short film I co-wrote (The Deal) about Fisker Automotive's eco luxury sports car, the Karma. After going under for a couple of years, FISKER IS BACK! With a little help from a Chinese company named Wanxiang and new owners, Fisker has launched a customer support program and a swanky new website (www.thenewfisker.com). More importantly, check out this 30-second spot from director August Bradley at Glass Media Lab—which also serves as my first credit as a stunt driver!
Danny Boyle (127 Hours, 28 Days Later) directing Michael Fassbender (Inglorious Basterds, Prometheus) in a script by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Moneybag)? Sign me up. It will be interesting to see how this compares with the earlier Jobs movie by a first-time writer.
And another very worthwhile-seeming film to add to the growing must-see list. Saw this actor (Eddie Redmayne) in a little flick a few years ago and not at all surprised he's blowing up now, as Stephen Hawking. (Official film site here.)
Ace cinematographers Janusz Kaminski (“Lincoln”), Phedon Papamichael (“Nebraska”) and Wally Pfister (“The Dark Knight Rises”) offer instructional filmmaking videos online for as little as $3.95 per half-hour module? Worth checking out.Read More
