    Just last week the first news was announced about a possible True Detective: Season 3… and it wasn’t great. According to most sources, HBO denied a possibility of a third season due to the mixed audience and critic response to the sprawling second season. However, creator Nic Pizzolatto later went on to confirm that True Detective: Season 3 will happen and that its actually renewed until 2018.

    It’s no new knowledge that the cinematic adaptions of popular video games rarely work when it comes to the big screen. In fact, I was originally going to make a list of the “best video game movies” but found that there weren’t enough decent ones to include.

    From Australia to UAT: A Koala-ty Story

    Posted on Jan 27, 2016 1:56:14 PM by Jordan Wippell in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production, in Digital Filmmaking Degree, in Digital Video, in film festival, in film production, in filmmaker, in filmmaking, in international student, in movie screening, in movies, in Phoenix Film Festival, in technology college, in University of Advancing Technology, in college, in Degree in Film Production, in Film Production Schools, in Scholarship, in young filmmakers

    It was a hot Australian summer’s day as I stood next to a large production camera that was pointed at a concerned police officer. I placed my face up to the eyepiece and made sure that the focus and exposure of the shot was still correct. The journalist next to me was asking a slew of questions about a possible arson when all of a sudden a vibration in my pocket broke my concentration. I stepped back and pulled out the phone. It buzzed in my hand and the small screen displayed an international number “Unknown.” Having been at the job for almost two years, I was confident that I could answer the call without any trouble. I stepped away from the camera and put the phone to my ear. I was soon greeted by a friendly voice that stated they were from the University of Advancing Technology and that congratulations were in order for winning the Digital Video Scholarship.
