Roxë15 is ALIVE and WELL

Some of you may be wondering: What ever happened to that sci-fi short film? Well, I’m here to tell you that Roxë15 is, indeed, alive and well.

Ohio-based editor Chris Croft and I have been working hard for the past several weeks….and (thank God!) the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer and closer. I have had the great pleasure of editing sound effects (call me geeky or whatever, but I happen to LOVE editing audio). Anyhoo, the final pieces are coming into place. It has taken a while but as they say, good things come to those who wait — so stay tuned.

Also, I’m extremely excited and honored to announce that the feature-length screenplay of Roxë15 was recently selected to be a part of cultivEight, a national film development program sponsored by NEA Art Works! cultivEight is produced by PushPush Film and Theater in Atlanta, in partnership with BrandCinema in NYC and producer Alexander A. Motlagh. It’s an innovative, hands-on, filmmaker-centered incubator that develops out-of-the-box film projects over 8 months.  The object is to thoroughly and thoughtfully develop projects, connect filmmakers with producers and get projects into (what?) PRODUCTION!

Feeling extremely thankful/grateful that both the long and short of Roxë15 are moving in the right direction…..ever forward!

ROXË15: Update!

You’re probably wondering:
Where in the world is Roxë?

A new voice in science fiction

Roxë15: A sci fi short film

We are thrilled to report that as you read these words,
Roxë15 is in the very capable hands of superb editor Lamont Jack Pearley!
YAAAAAY!

Lamont Jack Pearley

He’s very serious about editing: Lamont Jack Pearley

Jack (who’s also a fantastic filmmaker in his own right) has edited for Bloomberg Business Week and City Lights Media, worked production with Upright Citizens Brigade and in the documentary world — not to mention his work producing, directing and editing his films and Web series. We’re amped that he is now slicing, dicing and cutting Roxë15 into the future-forward visual journey it’s destined to be. Our ETA for the finished film? Early 2014. After Jack does his thing, we still have a couple more post-production bases to cover before prime time…..but baby, we are well on our way.

Stay tuned!

BEWARE THIS VIRUS

virus CU_brite

Of course, it doesn’t pop up until the year 2051…in virtual reallity….but you can never be too careful. It’s pretty focused on getting Roxë, but anything is posible in VR. And don’t get it twisted: this digital monster is stealth. It doesn’t speak, it doesn’t feel, and it’s brutally efficient. Just saying.

Check out the very un-monstrous Daniel Moser, who plays the virus in Roxë15, talking about his inhuman character. Daniel is nothing like the photo —- honest.

Roxë15 is raising money for post-production on IndieGoGo until Sept. 30. Help make this film happen — become a backer today!

Genetic Abductees

The work of NYC artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg.

You do realize that you’re leaving little pieces of yourself wherever you go, right? The cup you left on the cafe table, your spit on the sidewalk, your wad of chewed-up gum in the gutter, a few strands of hair in a public bathroom sink. Well, NYC artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg collects DNA-filled items left behind in public spaces and takes them to Genspace, a “community biotechnology lab” in Brooklyn. Genspace extracts the DNA, which gives the artist intell on the person who left it. Says Dewey-Hagborg: “From a cigarette butt, I can learn where someone’s ancestors likely came from, their gender, eye color, hair color, complexion, freckles, their tendency to be overweight and a handful of dimensions of the face as well with a certain likelihood.” The DNA doesn’t give her an exact portrait, but it’s enough info for her to come up with a mug that she can translate into art. No wonder their faces look so spooky!
