Wes Anderson’s To Create A Six Part Stop-Motion Film

wesanderson_stopmotion_01

Over this past weekend at the Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival, director Wes Anderson shared that he might return to stop-motion for his next film project. The spin is that he’s planning to break it up into six “episodes”. He said that the only thread linking the six vignettes would be that they’re each set in Naples, much like Vittorio De Sica’s “The Gold Of Naples”.

Earlier in the year Anderson also said that he was working with “The Darjeeling Limited’ and “Moonrise Kingdom” collaborator Roman Coppola on an undisclosed project. “It’s a little bit vaguely avant-garde in its concept and I’m just not sure if it’s going to quite gel,” he said to Indiewire. “I’m trying to think of a good tease. I think the thing is well, it’s a thing where maybe there’s ‘many things happening at once.’ That could be my tease.”

Quentin Tarantino Plans To Retire After His 10th Film

Quentin_Taratino

Speaking at the American Film Market, director Quentin Tarantino said that he has plans to retire after releasing his tenth film. “It’s not etched in stone, but that is the plan,” he said. “If I get to the tenth, do a good job and don’t screw it up, well that sounds like a good way to end the old career. If, later on, I come across a good movie, I won’t not do it just because I said I wouldn’t. But ten and done, leaving them wanting more, that sounds right.”

His upcoming film, Hateful Eight, will be his eighth, but there is still no official date for production, so retirement may still be a way off. Tarantino is currently 51-years-old.

“I don’t believe you should stay on stage until people are begging you to get off,” he added. “I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard… I like that I will leave a ten-film filmography, and so I’ve got two more to go after this.”

NYC Pop-Up Store Allows You to Pay With Your Social Media Followers

onepiece_01

OnePiece, a brand specializing in onesies, have opened up a pop-up store in Soho, New York which will let you pay for items with your followers on social media. Customers can connect to the stores ‘OnePiece ambassador system’ which calculates a persons outright social following with numbers taken from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Vine, Pinterest, Youtube and LinkedIn. A persons social following is then converted into a dollar amount, with every 500 followers being equal to $1. Customers also have the option to earn an additional $20 of credit by sharing an image from the store with the encouraged hashtag #SocialCurrency.

The store claims to be the first in the world to offer such a payment system in retail. If you’re in the market for a onesie and your social media game is big, head down to 557 Broadway, Soho, New York to grab yourself a bargain. The social currency concept runs until November 17.

It’s not the first time an odd form of currency has popped-up in New York. Nike introduced a vending machine earlier this year in the city which only accepts NikeFuel as Payment, encouraging people to do more exercise.

DOC NYC Review: Enquiring Minds: The Untold Story of the Man Behind the National Enquirer

by Curtis John

Screening: Nov. 15, 7pm

Venue: SVA Theatre (New York, NY)

Section: Special Events (NYC Premiere)

You know the National Enquirer well enough; it’s that gossip tabloid your mother, grandmother, or auntie picked up at the supermarket checkout line. Controversial and shocking in content, the Enquirer’s history parallels its subject matter in the life of the tabloid’s legendary publisher, Generoso “Gene” Pope Jr. Purchasing the paper in 1952—allegedly with mafia financing—Pope demonstrated an uncanny knack for assessing what the public wanted, at first using sex and gore, and later celebrity gossip and the supernatural, to ramp up his circulation to unheard-of numbers.

Fall 2014 Fashion Accessory Trends

With cooler weather quickly beating out the last bit of summer, now’s the perfect time to stock up on the best of this year’s fall accessory trends. Taking a cue from the runways, here are the top five trends to buy into this season for women.

Boot Camp

knee-high-boots

We all know fall is boot season. Whether heeled or flat, over-the-knee or ankle, boots are the shoe of choice for stomping through fallen leaves on windy streets. This year, knee-high boots are more popular than ever with the return of 60s-inspired fashions. Shift dresses and micro mini skirts pair perfectly with a leather boot hitting just below the knee. Opt for a blocky heel and squared toe—minus the buckles and adornments— for a real retro feel.

 

Bundled Up

blanket-scarf-milan-fashion-week-street-style-1

Scarves are a must-have for fall, and this year, the blanket scarf is the only one you’ll need. This oversized wrap is the perfect addition to any outfit and allows you to make a statement with one simple piece. Worn draped across the shoulders or looped around your neck, it’s sure to keep you warm and add a fun element to what might be an otherwise plain fall sweater. If a large tartan or Aztec print is too loud for you, a solid color will have a subtler, although still noticeable, impact.

by Curtis John 

Filmmaker David Thorpe and fashion guru Tim Gunn

Screening: Nov. 13, 7pm

Venue: SVA Theatre (New York, NY)

After a breakup with his boyfriend, journalist David Thorpe confronts his anxiety about “sounding gay,” resulting in a funny and touching journey of self-discovery. With instruction from acting coaches and linguists, and guidance from friends, family, total strangers, and celebrities like comedian Margaret Cho, actor George Takei, sex advice columnist Dan Savage, fashion guru Tim Gunn, and writer David Sedaris, Thorpe quickly learns that many people—both gay and straight—often wish for a different voice. What starts as a personal journey becomes a chance to unpack layers of cultural baggage concerning sexuality, identity, and self-esteem.
