'Pagan Holidays' Transforms from a Small, Independent Project to a True Feature Film
Clifton Holmes knows you have to be ready for anything. Just because one opportunity doesn't work out, it doesn't mean you can't leverage what you already have and turn it into an even greater one. It's all about being flexible. It's how he came to direct "Pagan Holidays," the first official project from Basic Elements, a Chicago based entertainment production company aimed at creating reasonably budgeted feature length productions, both narrative and documentary, which Clifton founded in 2012.

Time Travel, Ham Sandwiches and the Pocket Cinema Camera and the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Ham sandwiches are pretty much the same no matter where you are. But the same is not true when thinking about when you are. In the 1970s, it was Wonder Bread and two slices of ham. Maybe a slice of that weird orange cheese. But today? Well, which of the 10 types of organically grown bread would you like with your smoked, pepper or free range ham? If you are one of the two time travelers in Kanen Flowers's new series "18:20," the search for the normalcy of a simple ham sandwich, one of the running plot points in the series, is just one of the many reminders that everything changes when time traveling.

SXSW Premiere "Thank You a Lot" Tells a Story of Austin's Music Scene
SXSW Premiere
Austin, TX may be known as the live music capital of the world, but it's also home to a thriving video production and film industry that promotes and champions local talent, with members sourcing expertise from within the tight knit community. Austin doesn't just keep it weird; it also keeps it local, which is exactly what Writer/Director Matt Muir and Producer Chris Ohlson did with their feature film "Thank You a Lot." Not only was the film shot in Austin, but Matt is also a graduate of the University of Texas along with the film's DP, Harrison Witt, who teaches courses in advanced cinematography and film production at the university.

Pfister, Depp Reunite For Sci-fi 'Transcendence'
Pfister, Depp Reunite For Sci-fi 'Transcendence'
For more than a decade, cinematographer Wally Pfister brought director Christopher Nolan's cinematic visions to life. Now, he's the one calling the shots. His directorial debut, the new sci-fi mystery "Transcendence", has many elements of a Nolan blockbuster — eye-popping visual effects, a mind-bending story and an A-list lead in Johnny Depp. All of those things translate into high expectations for Pfister, who jokingly likens his newly christened director's seat to an "electric chair." In the film releasing Friday, the mind of Depp's terminally ill scientist, Will Caster, is uploaded into a computer after his death, spawning an eerily unruly machine. At the heart of the story is the disrupted relationship of Will and his wife, Evelyn, played by Rebecca Hall. Read More
