Happy belated Valentine's Day, everyone!
Perhaps we should have greeted you with a channel full of romantic comedies, epic love stories, and some melodramas, but you know... we're just not like that. We're a little bit more hardcore when it comes to movies, and that's why we selected our Alfred Hitchcock Web TV as the featured channel of the week. Re-discovering epic classics is always a pleasure, so why not start with The Man Who Knew Too Much and expand your knowledge of film history. Maybe, some day, someone will call you a film buff. Maybe they already do. And if you are a film buff, then hear this: Abel Ferrara shares great stories about Hitchcock at our studio. Who needs Hitchcock by Truffaut when you have Hitchcock by Ferrara?
And now, we're taking a step towards more contemporary stuff... Our featured filmmaker this week is Ben Warner, founder of Digicosm. Through his very own production house, Warner released several projects, including the self-funded Guardian, a supernatural web series. Digicosm is also the place to find interviews, culinary documentaries and an ongoing vodcast called FiST Chat. If you like filmmaking and new technologies, this is the weekly debate you need! Ben co-hosts it with film colleague Stephan Kern and discusses topics like 3D, how to film with an iPhone, and the latest Hollywood stories.
