Introducing Roxë15, The Movie Art


ARTWORK and TITLE: Copyright 2013, Artistic Freedom Ltd. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Any duplication, derivation or use is EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN.

We are pleased as punch to unveil the key artwork for my sci-fi short film, Roxë15. UK artist Rowan Stocks-Moore has produced 3 hot & gorgeous pieces of artwork for the project. Rowan was the to work with and we’re stoked about how this art captures the stark world of the film *and* hints at the psycho-digital thang that rocks Roxë’s world.

Meantime, post-production marches on. Editor Jack Pearley is rolling with the creative punches, working it out. Also, we’ve just brought on NYC visual effects artist Adam Wiesen to give Roxë15 a nice dose of “yuck” factor. Welcome to Team Roxë, Adam!

Next up: motion graphics wizard Kate Thomson will soon be bringing her cyber-fabulous-bad-assness to the mix. Stay tuned.


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!

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!

Roxë15: Onward and Upward!


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.

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!

Tragically Perverted: The Thirsty Barfly

Meet The Barfly, played by NYC actor Michael Kaplan in sci-fi short film Roxë15.

The Barfly can usually be found at the end of the bar in Tranzit, the high-tech dive where Roxë makes her daily bread. He  is the quintessential mid-21st century man: disgruntled, full of rage and more than anything, THIRSTY — because like most people in the America of 2051, he can’t afford water — let alone a drink. The Barfly represents many future Americans: bled dry and mad about it. Somewhere along the way, he’s decided to take it out on Roxë….but she’s not having it.

Hear what the actor has to say about the low-life he plays so well:

If you want to see a new and different possible future, help make it happen.
Become a backer at any level. Today’s a great day for it!

And oh yeah — in real life, Michael is a really cool guy and an illmatic actor. Keep up with him.

PlayStation 4: Virtual Reality Here We Come!

Sony’s HMZ-T2 3D goggles

Word on the street is that Sony will soon unveil their virtual reality headset for PlayStation 4. VR is the next-level gaming experience and apparently, Sony has taken it way beyond ts current 3D goggles, the HMZ-T2. If anybody has the bank and the know-how to make it happen, it’s Sony. The electro giant says it doesn’t comment on rumors, but if you listen to industry sources, the announcement may come at the Tokyo Game Show this month.
