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.”

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.

The world’s a much brighter place when you’re not too bright for it.
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?
