Baraka Blu-Ray Cover

Baraka is expected to be released on Blu-ray on 28-Oct-2008.

You can pre-order the Blu-Ray with a link at the top of the Baraka page


Special Features: Includes over 80 minutes of all new bonus features: Baraka: A Closer Look
Baraka: Restoration

It's expected to sell for US$34.98.

Great news as Baraka is truly a film that will benefit from a high quality transfer, as it was shot in 70mm. Currently Baraka DVDs are difficult to get hold of, and I assume it is because production and release has stopped whilst the Blu-Ray HD version was published. I expect a new DVD version will also be available.

I might have to buy a new TV and DVD player soon :)

I'll let you know more when I get more information.Read more >>>

What energy do you worship?

Last updated by Darren on 03 July 2009

What energy do you worship? is a thought provoking short film, comparing various types of religious worship, to the worship of nature and the energy of its oceans from the perspective of surfers.

It's a good short film.

Highway World - a film by Martin Hans Schmitt

Last updated by Darren on 03 July 2009

Martin has sent me a copy of his film Highway World. It is a great film which fits nicely into the genre of this website. I am about to leave England to spend the winter traveling in India and Southeast Asia, and unfortunately to do not have time to add a page for the film. Check out Martin's website though, and I will add more details upon my return in June.

Seeking a muscian to help score a short independent non-verbal film

Last updated by Darren on 03 July 2009

Paul Ramsbottom is seeking a musician to help score a independent non-verbal film.

Paul's email address is: pramsbottom @ (remove the spaces)

Pauls message below...

I am seeking a creative collaborator (or a small group of people) to create an original score for a short film project. Ideally I am looking for local people in the San Francisco / Bay Area.

This film is a high definition video project that I have been filming in SE Asia since 2002. The working title "16x9" reflects the sixteen or so South East Asian nations that I have visited during nine trips over the last 5 years.

This is the first time I have presented any of my work or sought the assistance of others (except in your class). My ambitions for this project are very modest; perhaps to create something worthy of entry in a few minor film festivals.Read more >>>
