Impressive film for $300 budget!

Ataque de Pánico! (Panic Attack!) 2009 Fede Alvarez tells a little about how he made the short film: They look like Mechforce Marauders to me… but perhaps I played a little too much of Ralph Reed’s excellent Amiga game in the early 1990s…

Three Edged Sword, a fan fiction audio drama based on Babylon 5, has been making my daily commute seem much shorter. If you like Babylon 5 and enjoy a decent audio drama, it is available free as a podcast from Voices of Babylon.

Closed Captions can be fun!

So our good friend Bob helped us figure out how to turn on closed captioning on our TV, and we’ve been able to follow the dialogue on modern shows and movies much better. What the heck happened to training actors to project their voices and keeping the effects down so you can hear the dialogue? […]
