Will the Akira Live Action Film Ever Happen?

The 1988 anime film Akira is one of the most talked about and influential animated films ever to come out of the Japanese film industry.  For almost two decades there have been discussions about adapting the film into a live-action epic, all of which have been aborted.  Why can’t Hollywood manage to get this done? Is the movie unfilmable or is this just a case of the big movie studios being unwilling to take a risk?

5 Ways to Keep Your Sound Editor From Killing You

When you think about directing and filmmaking, one of the first things that always comes to mind is the quality of the footage.

Observations on a Shot: UP

Up is the archetypal story of boy-meets-girl/boy-gets-girl/boy-loses-girl/boy-gets-girl-back but with a final act twist that accompanies the already non-formulaic retelling. Instead of a feature length also-ran romantic comedy, the film gives us the first three parts of the archetype in a short montage at the beginning of the film, illuminating the deep, real-world love shared between Ellie and Carl that can only stem from the ups and downs (both incidentally and intrinsically metaphorical) of a marriage nurtured for many anniversaries.
