New trailer for not-for-profit ‘Judge Minty’ fan film [2013]

After years of effort and many thousands of free man-hours, and ahead of the launch of the film for free online, the team behind the not-for-profit Judge Dredd fan film ‘Judge Minty’ have released a new trailer.

The short film starring Edmund Dehn and Dredd artist Greg Staples has been touring festivals since its debut last year.

Produced by fans in their own time and for free, the film is based on a character from the early days of Judge Dredd and follows Judge Minty as he takes the ‘Long Walk’ into the irradiated wastelands of the Cursed Earth.

DVD copies will not available but ‘Judge Minty’ will be available to watch online for free via YouTube and Vimeo around April/May.

The fans behind ‘Judge Minty’, Steven Sterlacchini and Steve Green, said: “It was tricky picking what to include and what to keep back, as it’s not a three-hour epic, and wanted to keep some surprises rather than trailer it do death. We’ve been refining shots since it premiered at the Thought Bubble convention last year, so there will be slight changes as well as a new credits sequence (some of which can be seen in the trailer). We hope people enjoy it, and like to thank fans, creators and Rebellion for being supportive while we’ve been making this film.”

PAINTWORK – A brief glimpse into our augmented reality future [2013]

New Scientist’s Arc Magazine and science fiction author Tim Maughan are proud to announce the online debut of the low budget, experimental short film Paintwork. Set in near-future Bristol – the British city known internationally for spawning Banksy – it follows augmented reality graffiti artist 3Cube as she illegally transforms an all-too familiar advertising billboard into a work of high tech street art, and poses questions about the relationships between technology, advertising and the control of public spaces.

Heavily influenced by Chris Marker’s seminal 1962 film La Jetée, Paintwork blends still photography by Laurie Eagle and computer animation by Alan Tabrett with audio from two stalwarts of the Bristol music scene in the form of narration by renowned MC Koast and an exclusive soundtrack from influential dubstep producer Forsaken. Based on the title short story from Maughan’s critically acclaimed collection, Paintwork was premiered in an early form in February as part of the arts festival Sonic Acts in Amsterdam, but today sees the unveiling of the completed version.

Tim Maughan is a science fiction author and freelance writer based in Bristol. His short story Limited Edition has been shortlisted for the British Science Fiction Association award.

Alan Tabrett is a 3D designer, animator and visual effects artist from North Somerset in the UK

Laurie Eagle is a musician and photographer, also from North Somerset.

Bristol-based Koast is a hard-working & versatile MC, who has spent the best part of a decade grafting to carve a niche as one of the top hosts in the dubstep & bass music scenes, as well as running the record label Durkle Disco.

Pete Thomas has released solo work as Forsaken on Punch Drunk and Immerse, and is also producer and writer for the band Isola Dusk with releases on Dark Clover and 2 Floors Down. He was also co-founder of the influential label Soul Motive.

Bobi Maughan is a freelance graphic designer based in Bristol, specializing in print and packaging design.

Arc Magazine is a digital quarterly from New Scientist of fact, fiction and opinion about the future.

Something Real – A peek into world of Culture by Jon Rennie

Reydon, a young man who spends his days playing Battle’ in a perfect, utopian society, realises that he has grown tired of his faultless lifestyle and wants to find something more meaningful to achieve. However, his friend, the robot Kasta, has other ideas and tries to persuade him otherwise.

Something Real was filmed in one day in November 2003 on Digibeta and then four months in post production for the special effects, colour correction and sounds effects to be added.

Alex – Teaser trailer for “Clockwork Orange” tribute short movie

In the near future the society of a megalopolis is divided into two fractions:
on one side a super-rich minority, led by the ruthless dictator Lucius
(Werner Daehn), living a life of debauchery and decadence. On the other side
the vast majority, dwelling in different degrees of nearly unbearable poverty.

When the young Frederick (Nikolai Kinski) comes in possession of the partial
copy of a long forbidden Stanley Kubrick movie, it sparks a growing movement
amongst the city’s formerly aimless youths, developing fast into serious
opposition to the ruling system, which retaliates with rapidly increasing
brutality. Frederick becomes Alex, his friends the new droogs. But are they even
aware of the consequences of their actions?
