A horror-thriller set on 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month and concerning a entity from another world that enters the earthly realm through Heaven's 11th gate. 11-11-11 is both written and directed by American filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman, of Saw II, III & IV, Repo! The Genetic Opera and Mother's Day, still due out later this year. Bousman and Epic Pictures Group only announced the project last August, but pulled it together and are currently shooting in Spain. Though we don't know if this has a distributor yet, as expected, it will be arriving in theaters on November 11th, 2011, as in 11-11-11 itself. How creepy! Look any good?

This is a single take steadicam shot during a photographic workshop at the Elk's Tower in Sacramento. The workshop put on by Mark Behrens and Lookpw titled "Gun's Gut's and Glory" featured 22 photographers and 20 models. This shot actually came together completely unplanned, when most of the photographers and models had gathered into one room. It started out as a "wouldn't it be cool" and turned into an "alright everybody, listen up" in about 30 seconds. This shot stands completely uncut and is a good example of "speed ramping" for maximum effect.
It took us about 5 minutes to bring everyone up to speed, place people around the room, and figure out a rough path. The original shot is a little over two minutes long. It's obviously really hard to get 40 people to hold still for that long, so a lot of the sped up sections hide some of the movement. The other sped up and slowed down parts were just to emphasize it's epic awesomeness. Thanks to everyone who made this possible!

It's the Iron Man of documentaries! Sony Classics has debuted the trailer on Yahoo for filmmaker Morgan Spurlock's latest documentary, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, which explores product placement. As you've probably already heard, the documentary is very "meta", as the film was entirely funded by product placement, while showing us the inside process of all his meetings and placement deals. I saw it at Sundance and absolutely loved it, will be one of my favorite docs for years, so I highly suggest checking it out. This is a great introduction and I can't wait to see it again. And yes, all of those products (collectible cups!) do exist.

Un cortometraggio animato di 10 minuti prodotto dalla Walt Disney Productions nel 1946 e dall’inequivocabile titolo The Story of Menstruation. Era stato voluto dall’International Cello-Cotton Company (ora Kimberly-Clark) ed è stato mostrato a circa 100milioni di studenti Americani. The Story of Menstruation è probabilmente il primo film dove si sente pronunciare la parola Vagiaina-

Synopsis: CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS, a breathtaking new 3D documentary from the incomparable Werner Herzog (ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD, GRIZZLY MAN) follows an exclusive expedition into the nearly inaccessible Chauvet Cave in France, home to the most ancient visual art known to have been created by man. A hit at this year's Toronto Film Festival, CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS is an unforgettable cinematic experience that provides a unique glimpse of pristine artwork dating back to human hands over 30,000 years ago -- almost twice as old as any previous discovery.

Timo arnall, Jørn Knutsen e Einar Sneve Martinussen, tre giovani designer norvegesi, hanno compiuto a Oslo una piccola magia tecnologica: rendere visibili le reti wi fi che attraversano la città. Per farlo il trio ha percorso le strade di notte con un'asse di quattro metri dotata di antenna wireless e di una serie di led che lampeggiando indicavano la presenza (e l'intensità) del segnale. Il movimento di questa speciale barra è stato quindi seguito da una fotocamera con la tecnica del light painting, vale a dire scattando foto a lunga esposizione. In questo modo le onde radio provenienti dai dispositivi wireless si sono in pratica materializzate, dando finalmente un'idea grafica di come queste occupano e attraversano il contesto urbano
