**According to editor Steven James Snyder and the rest of Techland, that is. Click the image to get Snyder’s list.

Silent Running

From ‘Silent Running’ (1972). Ever seen it?

I def agree with #4, haven’t see #3 and #5 yet, have to revisit #2. And I like #1 but I definitely don’t think it’s #1. Hmmmm….I feel a Top 10 list of my own coming on.

Roxë15: Onward and Upward!

RUN_ROXE_1

We have officially concluded the IndieGoGo campaign for Roxë15!

Thanks to the backing of visionary and generous supporters, we are headed toward post-production. We SO appreciate everyone who gave to this project.
Thank you for being invested!

We eternally grateful for all of the many forms of love that have come to this project from so many corners. Without audience, there is no point — so having you with us means everything…. and we will be loving you right back. We very much look forward to presenting a sci-fi film that is fresh, authentic and innovative.
Roxë15 will represent a new voice and a new perspective, in a new way. Namaste.

Flashback Future Friday: TRON

tron_villain

We love Tron. (The original, of course.) Remember this dude? Not the one you want to be trapped inside a circuit-board with, fa shizzle. Thinking about virtual reality got us feeliing nostalgic about past versions of VR — a category which Tron rules, as far as we’re concerned. People….inside a computer. How cool is that?

Roxë (April Matthis) and Ambrose (Graham Powell) in a virtual world. (Production still from Roxë15.)


Roxë15 puts Roxë herself inside the software program she created. It’s a whole new world run rules that Roxë created, but someone else is breaking. Curious? Help us reveal what’s up to everyone by getting this film finished! 

ROXE15 on IndieGoGo until 9.30.2013

With 2 days and about 21 hours left on Kickstarter, we are SO AMPED to know about BLACK GIRLS CODE! BGC is an organization out of Oakland, CA created by biotechnology and engineering professional Kimberly Bryant. BGC is crashing through the digital gender divide. (Check them on CNN!)

BGC’s mission: To increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.

Black Girls Code is EXACTLY the kind of place where a young Roxë would’ve started on her path to programming!
WE LOVE IT!

Hats off and bowing down to Ms. Bryant for setting these girls up to be the REAL ballers of the 21st century —- because as Roxë would tell you, technology WILL be the new currency…

Roxë15 celebrates a truth that’s BETTER than fiction.
HELP US CREATE A NEW VISION OF THE FUTURE.
