Video: Tribute to John Williams

How would John Williams sound with the use of only 1 kind of instrument ?
Here's a tribute to John for twelve French Horns.
It sounds amazing (as far as I'm concerned).


And since I just can't get enough of the Suo Gan Lullaby from Empire of the Sun, as featured above, I include the original sequence from the film as well.

Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular Comes to New York!

The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular is finally making its way to the United States! Two performances have been announced for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday, October 7, 2015.

The first show is scheduled for 3pm, while the second will be at 7:30pm. Both performances will be hosted the latest incarnation of The Master, Michelle Gomez. Here's what she had to say about hosting this special event:

I was a big fan of Doctor Who before I joined the cast, and I love Murray Gold's powerful and emotional soundtracks for the series. This live show has been a big hit with fans of the series in other countries, and I know that Doctor Who fans in North America have been waiting for their turn to see it. I'm so excited to be presenting the first-ever American performances, and to be doing this in the city that has become my home. I can't wait 'til this fall to see how the amazing U.S. audience reacts to the show being staged in the Big Apple. I'm honor…

Lucasfilm Veterans Form Jaunt To Specialise In Cinematic VR

A group of Lucasfilm veterans have come together to form a company called Jaunt.  Specialising in "cinematic VR' or virtual reality.  Their aim is to being a different form of storytelling when it comes to watching movies.

Former CTO of Lucasfilm, Cliff Plumer is leading the new studio with two other former Lucasfilm veterans, David Anderman and Miles Perkins joining at the Palo Alto office.

Recode.net tells us:

The new studio will partner with media companies, film studios and brands in Hollywood to develop live-action videos with Jaunt’s 360-degree camera and rendering technology, similar to the Paul McCartney concert clip the company released last year.
“This is still new ground,” Plumer said in an interview with Re/code. “There’s things we’re leveraging from how we’ve created movies in the past, but we want to work with existing filmmakers and show them this is a different way of storytelling.”

Star Wars is in Good Hands

When it comes to my Star Wars Celebration Anaheim experience, many things stand out.  I enjoyed a variety of things from meeting colleagues and Assembly of Geeks listeners in person, to finding exclusives and adding items to my collection of Star Wars merch.  However, I also came away with a great impression of the state of Star Wars. 
When it was first announced that Disney was buying Lucasfilm and making more movies, I reacted with excitement mixed with thoughtful intrigue.  I wasn’t one of those people who thought Star Wars would suddenly feature Jedi breaking out into songs in the middle of movies with animated Mynocks swooping in and whistling to the tunes.  Instead, I was excited that Star Wars wasn’t going away.  Yet, I had trouble visualizing what this all meant.
At the end of the day, I didn’t find the acquisition that jarring of a revelation.  As I thought about it, I knew Lucas would have to pass it off to someone at some point.  So why not Disney?  They already had a long s…

Steven's Animaniacs

Steven not only presented the Animaniacs cartoonshow, sometimes he even played a bit part.
.
In one of the earlier episodes (Hooked on a Ceiling), famous painter Michelangelo has received orders to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, but he is without inspiration. With a deadline coming nearer and nearer he accepts the assistence of The Warner Brothers (and Sister), to finish the job, before the holy father himself comes to inspect the paintjob.




The Warners erase Michelangelo's work and add a new painting, featuring Elliot and a famous extra terrestrial, justb minutes before his holyness arrives, and he turns out to be:


Voiced by Frank Welker, Spielberg gladly gives his blessing to the painting, done by Michelangelo and the Warners.

So all's well, that ends well.

What if Man of Steel was in Colour?

Man of Steel was a bad movie.  Over-long fight scenes, bad script and lacking the iconic John Williams soundtrack.  But another thing missing was the colour.  It was toned down, probably to look darker like the other DC movies, Batman.

What if Man of Steel was in colour?  Well it would look so much better.  There is a trend these days especially with superhero movies to desaturate the colours and to tone back the costumes.  DC seems to be guilty of this more than Marvel but both do it.

Take a look at this interesting video and see how leaving the colours alone actually make the movie better on the eye.  Guardians of the Galaxy is a good example of this.  A beautiful movie and stunning to watch.  Compare that to Man of Steel which has been tempted to go towards the awful 'dark and gritty' look.  Bring back the colours.  Lets hope Batman Vs Superman is prettier.

Check Out This Custom Made Lucas Vs Spielberg Lamp

Looking through Reddit I found this one post by BenRiddlebargerwho has produced this amazing and rather impressive custom lamp.  It's called 'Lucas Vs Spielberg' and has Obi-Wan Kenobi battling a great white shark.  Also thrown in for good measure is the Millennium Falcon all in a shiny gold colour.  What do you think?

Highlights from Chris Pratt's Reddit AMA

Chris Pratt, star of the upcoming film Jurassic World, participated in a Reddit AMA today. He touched on a few different topics ranging from his role as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, Parks & Recreation - and that aforementioned dinosaur movie - to his advice for aspiring actors and his relationship with his wife, actress Anna Faris.

Here are some of the highlights, presented in no particular order.
(All questions paraphrased)

What about that behind-the-scenes video from Parks & Recreation wherein you joke about being in the next Jurassic Park movie? Did you think it would actually happen? 

Thank you. I never believed I would work with Steven Spielberg on a Jurassic Park sequel. It was a joke at the time both literally and figuratively. It's been a dream to get to play these roles and work on the projects that I have.
Does Jurassic World capture the gritty feel of the previous novels?

Movies have a hard time of capturing the grittiness of a novel. Whereas novels have a…

Djomon Hounsou

Djimon Hounsou with Steven Spielberg  at the premi√®re of  What Lies Beneath
Djimon Hounsou was born on this day, April 24, 1964, in Contou, Benin in West Africa. He moved to France, at the age of 13 and became a successful model on various catwalks, until he was discovered by Steven Spielberg, when he needed an unknown face for the main character of Cinque in his drama Amistad in 1997.


Since that year Djimon Hounsou has worked on various Spielberg-related (Amblin or DreamWorks) projects, starting with the recurring part of Mobalage Ikabo in ER in 1999,

followed by the part of Juba in Ridley Scott's Gladiator,
Russel Crowe and Djimon Hounsou
Tough Guy Motherland, in the actioner Biker Boyz,

Co-star to Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson in Michael Bay's The Island,
Djimon Hounsou and Ewan McGregor

And voice of Drago in DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon 2.
Tootless and Djimon Hounsou

For all you actioners: he can, at this moment, be seen in Furious 7.



Happy 51th, Djimon …

Boom Blox

Steven Spielberg not only likes to play videogames, he sometimes creates them too.
The hugely succesfull Medal of Honor series has been based on ideas by Steven.
But in 2008 he helped launch a totally different videogame: Boom Blox.
Below the video created back then...
