Tag Archive: Short film


OrbNot too long ago I made the announcement that Geeking Cool would be rolled in together with another of my projects, Psyborg TV. Since then, I have been working feverishly designing and building the new website. This new site will contain a new and improved blog covering everything from comic books and movies to physics and philosophy. Additionally, it will also contain original fiction and original short films. All of the content on the site will be free as well (though we will have paid versions of fiction, a swag shop, and DVDs for sale). The site will be ad-supported, but it needs your help to get started. How would you like to become an Associate Producer for Psyborg TV’s website, fiction, and films? Read on to find out how.

Advertisements

Years ago I saw an ad within the pages of Rue Morgue for a short film that seemed pretty interesting. It was a modern silent film (even before The Artist came out) titled The Listening Dead. The thought of someone doing a silent film in today’s day and age intrigued me, so I went online searching for it. On YouTube I found a trailer for the film. Even more intrigued I went to the website. But alas, you needed a credit card to get a DVD of the film which, at the time I did not have. The memory of the film had slipped away for a while, but recently returned and so I went back YouTube to view the trailer again. Lo and behold, the entire short film from Phil Mucci was uploaded. After years of wondering about this film, I hit play. Continue reading

Actually, quite the opposite is happening and the sparse posting has very good reasons. Here is a brief glimpse into what is going on behind the scenes at Geeking Cool. Continue reading

Golem

02 IndiegeekIt has been a while since I made a post about a YouTube video and so I thought I’d bring you a good one. I am not usually a fan of “art house films”. Usually, I find the images and story don’t match up right and the messages being delivered are too abstract. In other words, I am of the mind that art is for canvas, literature, sculpture, and the like while film is for entertainment and information. When I saw the title of this film I was not too interested either as I’m not too interested in Jewish Mythology. But I hot the play button anyway and started watching Golem. Continue reading

What’s on television today? Absolutely nothing that interests you? We’ve had those days too. And it’s on days like these that we are extremely greatful for YouTube. You see, YouTube is a magical place where you can not only see animal cruelty (cats being forced to wear hats and play piano), but also where you can watch independent short films that may never see the light of day. I’m not going to lie to you. A lot of the films on YouTube are horrible. Occasionally, you can find really good ones though. Today, we watched a film Orbital Pictures. In fact, it is their very first film. Was it annoyingly simple and rife with bad acting or a diamond in the rough? Keep reading to find out. Continue reading
