Darklight is almost upon us. Screw everything else in it, they’re showing this big boy!!!!
Remember when a film looked like a video game and not the other way round? And CGI was something you could do on a Commodore 64? *sigh*
Really like this idea too:
Ooh, ooh and this one!!!
Dublin: The Movie (AKA The Darklight 4-Day Film Project)
In a rare and potentially fatal feat of cinematic daring, Darklight will present a feature length film on the last day of this year?s festival ? one shot entirely on the first day. The film will be an eclectic, multi-authored impression of Dublin (within the M50) as it lived, died, breathed, fucked, filled up and emptied, consumed, wept, was rained or shone on, grew bright and then darkened again… Darklight has invited an eclectic bunch of artists ? narrative film-makers, documentarians, visual artists and the like ? to watch, meditate on, interfere with or otherwise interrogate material of their choice in whichever style makes sense to them; curator Lenny Abrahamson will then use the films intact or cut them up, order them and reorder them, to produce, we hope, an original, intense and exciting film; a kind of Frankenstein archive of the city and the lives it contains on Thursday, June 26th 2008. What will emerge? Who knows. What is certain is that the Darklight 4-Day Film will be a unique event and one of the highlights of the festival.
The Tron rocks some serious neon CGI. Now if they showed Wargames afterwards, that would be cool.
Tron’s cgi is worse than you’d get done on a commodore 64 though, it’s gotta be ZX spectrum quality.
But doesn’t it make you feel like a lil B’dum, B’dum? Takes you back. I hate the new jiggery-pokery style FX.
Toy Story and Babe make me feel like a li’l B’dum B’dum, being 18 and all.
