One of Juan’s all time favorite films, and of course to Lee’s chagrin, it’s in black and white. Strap in for a Twilight Zone-like story of tension and paranoia, featuring an incredible cast, from a fantastic director.

A new home for ‘Movies You May Have Missed’?

In 2009, three friends produced a movie review webseries called Movies You May Have Missed. It ran successfully for three years, but we were never able to host it on Youtube or monetize it.

We’re hoping VidMe can be a new home for this show. Is it possible to resurrect a long defunct webseries? That’s my experiment.

Kodak Super 8 Camera and the Return of Ektachrome Film! CES 2017

Analog is making a comeback. Kodak is bringing back Ektachrome film for a new generation of Super 8 cameras. The Super 8 Camera features some new tricks like audio input and a handy flip out LCD. We’re way more excited for a film camera than we should be…

Sunday Silly: The Original 1994 ‘Fantastic Four’ Film is on Youtube

This last week we got a first look at the reboot for Fantastic Four, and it looks like it will be a darker departure from the first two films.

But did you know the “first” two FF films really weren’t the first?

Back in 1994 a film was produced, shot, and edited, but was never intended to be released. It was made solely for the studio to retain the rights, no small chunk of change considering the estimated budget of $1.5 million. We’re treated to some glorious, schlocky, low-budget film making from none other than Roger Corman.

Never intended for the light of day, but you can watch it on the Youtubes. Enjoy!

Google Giving Nexus 5 and 7 Owners a free copy of the film ‘Gravity’

Screenshot_2014-10-30-18-01-44To entice select Android owners to try screen casting through Google Play compatible devices like the Chromecast, Google realized people might want to stream things other than Youtube videos.

If you have a Nexus 5 phone or a Nexus 7 tablet, opening the Google Play Movies & TV app might present you an offer for a free copy of Gravity. Fantastic film to stream onto a good TV.

No word on how long this deal might last, so you might to jump on it sooner rather than later. Just no one tell Google that after I grabbed the film from my Nexus 7, I immediately fired it up on a Note 4 to stream to my Chromecast OK? Cool?


If you do not have a Nexus, apparently you are offered a copy of Shaun the Sheep: The Big Chase… Not quite as nice as Gravity, but that’s still better than nothing right?

Friday Fun: Daughter & Father Record their Reactions to Watching Scary Film – Hilarity Ensues

the_conjuringFamily bonding at its finest!

I’m a sucker for scary films, and I loves me a good reaction video. This Father (who isn’t a fan of horror) stuck it out for some Daddy Daughter bonding and captured some hysterical moments of fright while the two watched The Conjuring together.

I loathe horror films, but my oldest daughter has a penchant for them. She thought it would be cute to record ourselves watching The Conjuring. My embarrassment is for your pleasure. Enjoy!

Professional Broadcast Streaming Video Coming From Skype TX

Four years ago, on an entirely different blog, I lobbied Skype for a professional grade audio/video service. That day might be arriving soon…

Unveiled two days ago, Skype took the wraps off of their new broadcast-grade service dubbed “Skype TX”. Built on their acquisition of Cat and Mouse technology, they’ve developed a hardware and software combo which should deliver high quality video calling globally. Adding to a suite of tools already available to help producers integrate video content into their programs, Skype TX should be available later this year.

Me from four years ago would be very excited. Full PR below with more details on the service. Continue reading Professional Broadcast Streaming Video Coming From Skype TX
