    American Prince by Tommy Pallotta http://americanprincemovie.com In 1978, director Martin Scorsese turned the camera on his friend and roommate, Steven Prince, whose life was more fascinating than what any screenwriter could dream up. The compelling documentary that emerged, 'American Boy' was to become Scorsese’s “lost” film. Having never been properly released, it gained cult status among cinefiles over the years through bootleg copies and influenced a whole generation of filmmakers. Quentin Tarantino took one of Prince's stories about injecting adrenaline into the heart of a woman who overdosed and turned it into one of the most memorable scenes in film history. Prince's influence on American cinema not only reaches much further than his small role as the gun salesman in 'Taxi Driver', he has clearly left an indelible mark. Three decades after Scorsese's documentary was released, Tommy Pallotta brings us 'American Prince', where he draws out Steven Prince once more to recount his days since 'American Boy', share why he turned his back on the entertainment industry and to compose the next chapter of his story. 'American Prince' premieres at SXSW on 14 March 2009 and will be distributed online by SubmarineChannel.com for free through video sharing and bittorrent websites such as Mininova.org and the like. See americanprincemovie.com for more details. Director's bio Tommy Pallotta has produced Richard Linklater's 'A Scanner Darkly' and 'Waking Life'. Directed the feature 'The High Road' and music videos for the band Zero 7. He has also produced several short films including 'Snack and Drink', which resides as part of a permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art.

        http://prettycoolpeopleinterviews.submarinechannel.com The lovely, multi-talented Anna Biller shocked and surprised audiences everywhere with her high-camp (s)exploitation flick 'Viva'. The film takes place in 1972, during the hayday of the sexual revolution. Anna Biller plays Barbi - a bored, naive suburban housewife who gets sucked into a life of prostitution, drugs, sexual experimentation, nudist camps and orgies, and subsequently reinvents herself as the selfmade, sexually liberated godess Viva. Biller directed, wrote the script, plays the leading role, edited the film, created the ravishing costumes, and spent weeks, sometimes months, to perfect the lavishly decorated sets that are overflowing with gorgeous, evocative props from the era. 'Viva' is a masterpiece of styling that redefines retro. Everything is infused with a sense of style and class, to perfectly emulate a seventies B-movie. From the hair styles to the hors d'oeuvres, the dialogues, the fake laughter, the lighting, the cinematography -everything simply looks and sounds meticulously authentic. 'Viva' is a visual feast, an ode to an era of cinema with its vibrant technicolors and campy craftmanship, but most importly, tons of fun to watch! We met Biller at the Rotterdam Film Festival 2007, where 'Viva' had its world premiere. http://www.lifeofastar.com Interview by Alexander Oey.

          Together with Mischa Kamp i made a short documentary series called Being a fish in Japan. I created the leader and short animations. My favorite episode is: Namazu https://vimeo.com/12260388 A jaunty trip through the fish markets, tattoo parlors and ancient shrines of Japan via the peculiarities of life, love, and gory death as a fish. Whimsical tales from contemporary fish-obsessed Japan are told against a rich backdrop of ancient pescarian mythologies, with a strong graphic style that weaves together gritty documentary footage with eye-popping, Kaiga-influenced animation. Just like a good Maki: spicy and delectable! Watch more MiniMovies at http://minimovies.submarinechannel.com/
