Movie Trailer: The Good Dinosaur (2015)

Imagine if you will that dinosaurs didn’t go extinct due to an asteroid impact and that humans evolved alongside them.

Movie Review: Butter Lamp (2013)

Photography, both still and moving, is given a refreshing challenge in Wei Hu’s cleverly original short Butter Lamp, which concerns itself with a professional photographer’s efforts to take pictures of Tibetan nomads against a wide range of evocative backdrops. The entire movie uses the same camera setup with cuts between each group’s photo session. So…
