Reflexion - marekfilms



Running Time 1:47

"Reflexion is a experimental short film and visually haunting reminder looking at how quickly a relationship can come to an end by the choice of one person."

The no dialogue format of this clip reminded me a bit of lg15 montage videos - how they can recap a story with only video and music. This is a self-contained story in less than 2 minutes. Plus, I figured I would post something to move all these pictureless-posts down the page. :-)

Safety Pin-up Calendar Part II

Earlier this week, LG15Today ran a story on the new pin-up calendar featuring Brittney Powell and the cast of SafetyGeeks:SVI. For those who were interested in purchasing a calendar, but were apprehensive about the cost, there is now a second option. In addition, to the larger premium version available here, there also is a smaller, 11"x17", version available at zazzle.com. Also, with the Coupon code: CALENDARS998 one can save 44% if purchased by December 10th.

Web series are struggling to make money; this is an excellent way to show support for independent projects while still getting a quality product in return. Also, judging by the preview pictures, I can honestly say these calendars would make an excellent stocking stuffer.
