Punk, Pop and Sci Fi All Sealed With a Kiss in "Pink Zone" For Ben Walter, it all started 20 years ago when he saw Disney's Sleeping Beauty. The pure princess and how she changes from a single prick of the finger and true love's kiss.

But a gloomy, frightening look at the other side of the coin. And that was the birth of the Benjamin Walter's "Pink Zone," with its dreamy and graphic images captured by Blackmagic Cinema Cameras and DaVinci Resolve. ...Read More »
