star trek beyond posters

Following on from last week's character posters for Star Trek Beyond we now get two more, one of which is Mr Kirk himself.  I love the artwork but one thing that is notably missing from the posters, or at least from the US version are the words 'Star Trek.'  Either the studio is banking on the cultural awareness of the brand name or are they trying to distance themselves from the name so they can bring in a more broader audience?  What do you think?

the real fans of the saga star wars

The Force Among Us filmmaker/ documentarian Cris Macht is releasing a Star Wars Fan Reality Show – The Real Fans of the Saga. The web series will be launched this summer and is approximately 12 plus episodes (around 20 min. in length). The debut season of the show follows the lives of four passionate and diverse Star Wars fans during the Year of 2015 through the release of The Force Awakens.

The Kickstarter Campaign for the Project was launched May 25th.



This will be the 3rd project that Filmmakers Cris Machthttp://www.imdb.com/name/nm5277601/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 and Ian Vacekhttp://www.imdb.com/name/nm3051870/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 produced together.
After making 2 critically acclaimed Star Wars documentaries, Filmmaker Cris Macht wanted to do another Star Wars related project. Cris' wife loves reality TV as much as he loves Star Wars so he had the idea and inspiration to do a "reality style" project based around Star Wars fans!
Cris was also very inspired by passionate "conversations" he had with fans while making his 1st 2 Star Wars documentaries. he found it difficult to capture the "conversations" in the documentaries due to subjects being a little nervous while being interviewed - While filming the reality show - THE REAL FANS OF THE SAGA....it was much easier and "natural" to capture this! 
The Real Fans project was filmed at the start of 2015 and followed 4 completely different fans (that are friends)  to Celebration Anaheim all through well over a year (including leading up to The Force Awakens and after it's release). 
Each Episode will be 15 - 30 mins (actual time per episode TBD after editing) and there will be approx 12 - 17 episodes total (again, TBD while editing) 
Expect to see all the elements that make a reality show fun! Drama, Emotion, controversy, Hijinx, in depth conversations, confessionals, and music (by John Delvento ,http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5816686/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1) - Just to name a few! 
WHAT YOU GET - another great product from Filmmakers Cris Macht and Ian Vacek  

Risks and challenges

The Risks and Challenges are always financial. When you don't have enough....you can only do so much, when you have more financing avail, you can do more. The FIlmmakers Produced this project and put their own money into it. But honestly, It is difficult to mention what the risks and challenges are because Cris Macht has already released 3 documentaries (2 of them successfully funded through kickstarter - the first one he funded on his own!). The Real Fans project has already been filmed, except for the confessionals and is in the Post Production/ Editing process. Not only will your financial contribution get you some cool perks but it will help reimburse the filmmakers the expenses that they have covered, as well as paying for post production costs - ESPECIALLY EDITING! If the goal is not met - it will be difficult to release the project as it will be a financial burden during post production. Cris and Ian believe (along with their fans) that all their productions are made for the fans by the fans -YOUR support is vital!

revenge of the jedi logo

With Star Wars (1977) and The Empire Strikes Back (1980) taking the world by force, 1982 was a year defined by anticipation for the third and (then) final chapter in the Star Wars saga. The film’s originally promoted title Revenge of the Jedi and its ultimate change to Return of the Jedi has always been of significance to fans. Advertising materials that bear the more aggressive Revenge title reveal how far along the film’s marketing cycle had come prior to George Lucas’ decision to dismiss it in favor of Return. From posters and trailers to merchandising tie-ins, Revenge artifacts represent a compelling period in Star Wars history.

The Academy Film Archive holds several trailers from the United States with the initial Revenge title, most of which announcing a May 25th 1983 release date which coincided with the anniversary of the original Star Wars stateside release in 1977. However, this peculiar and very brief Revenge of the Jedi teaser trailer originated from a cinema in the United Kingdom, where the film was originally being considered for a Christmas 1983 release. This teaser was apparently shown with the U.K.’s May 1982 double feature re-release of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. American audiences would not get a glimpse of the third film until Star Wars was re-released in the U.S. in August 1982, meaning that this may be the earliest Revenge trailer distributed – and fans from across the pond got the first peek!

ausfans radio network

I love Jaws, you've probably guessed that by now and when Alan R. Ryan of the all new AusFans Radio podcast (previously Jogcast Radio) invited me on to talk about the 1975 classic I just couldn't say no.  In the first episode of the re-branded show we discuss all four movies along with fun facts, terrible impressions of Quint and reveal in detail what we really thought of the movies.

Don't miss it.  Here's the show notes along with the links.


Hi there listeners, we have a brand spanking new show for you to start off this podcast. I’m Alan R. Ryan, your host tonight, and joining us for this first episode of Ausfans Radio we have the owner of The Bearded Trio: Rob Wainfur. Rob is an authority on all things Spielberg and will be joining us for a total of two more specials on the brilliant director’s early work. We go through the trivia on the film, along with the thoughts we have now in hindsight on how this film changed our lives. This is an epic and we hope you love it as much as we do.
