There was a time when I considered "Limelight" the greatest film ever, that might have changed, but one thing still remains the same: in my opinion he is the greatest "filmmaker" ever. Just because one simple reason: he was able to make a masterpiece on his own... the whole creative process, everything... and not many people can do that, not even nowaways with a shitty movie when everything has become so "easy" for all of us.
I shot 3 years ago a shortfilm based in the same concept with very nice BTS. Sent dozens of emails to NFS editors and no one ever replied. Maybe that now there is new staff I shall give it a try again, althought it seems to be a bit late for the "novelty" factor.

Did they use CGI? At moments it looks a bit odd.
An article about "Victoria" or a real masterpiece as "Russian Arc" would be much more relevant to the topic of single-shot films. Sometimes it seems nothing is produced outside Hollywood, when actually what is done in the whole US is just a tiny fraction of what is been done around the world.
Would be nice to see more original articles (like those of C.Boone for example) and not just video-embedding what some one else has already done.
Wonderful idea! 2 or 3 months ago I set up a laptop with two external screens for my editing... and now that summer is here, I am missing sometimes to do my hard work by the swimming pool like that sexy chick. So it could really come in handy in many scenarios.
But yes, ooops, those magnets look too big close to the screen/HDD. I guess they might change the end design. Still hard to believe it will work on your "old laptop". Someone correct me, but I presume it needs a good performer dedicated graphic card.
Wonderfull and very funny video. On my own experience, very early on I realized that any "flawless and sexy" video I could shot, it was basicly to show it off in front of fellow filmmakers, industry-related people or "advanced viewers". And that apart from them, the average viewers (which account for most people who at the end are going to watch anything we shot) don't even realise all those subtle details I was taking so much care of. This is another prove of that.
At the end what really matters are storytelling and character-driven stories: moments people can dive in, and stories people can empathize with.
