FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TIM AND ERIC TO HOST WORLD PREMIERE OF ‘BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR’ ON FEBRUARY 27TH IN LOS ANGELES Severin Films Partners with The Cinefamily to Debut James Nguyen’s ‘Romantic Thriller’ LOS ANGELES, CA, February 10, 2010 – Severin Films (http://www.severin-films.com/) today announced that Tim and Eric, creators and stars of Adult Swim sketch comedy show Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, will host the highly-anticipated world premiere of BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR (www.birdemic.com), on February 27th at The Cinefamily in Los Angeles, California. Following the screening, Tim and Eric will lead a Q&A with writer/producer/director James Nguyen and stars Alan Bagh and Whitney Moore. Severin is working on transforming the theater into a temporary aviary with epic displays of BIRDEMIC special effects, props and costumes that will put the Smithsonian to shame. An EPK video for BIRDEMIC can be viewed at http://vimeo.com/9082600. Fans can connect with BIRDEMIC on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/birdemic), Twitter (http://twitter.com/birdemic) and the Web (www.birdemic.com). “Finally, Birdemic will have its proper and much-deserved debut,” said Carl Daft, CEO and co-founder of Severin Films. “Modern comedy legends, Tim and Eric, are beyond generous to host Severin’s world premiere of the film—we can’t think of a more fitting introduction to this night of groundbreaking cinema.” BIRDEMIC, described by Nguyen as “a romantic thriller,” is a horror/action/special-effects-driven love story about a young couple trapped in a small Northern California town under siege by homicidal birds. BIRDEMIC also tackles topical issues of global warming, avian flu, world peace, organic living, sexual promiscuity and lavatory access. Nguyen, a 42-year-old Vietnamese refugee, wrote, cast and shot the film over the course of four years using salary from his day job as a mid-level software salesman in Silicon Valley. The film pays homage to Hitchcock’s THE BIRDS via location shooting in Mission Bay, California, as well as an appearance by star of THE BIRDS Tippi Hedren (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tippi_Hedren). When rejected for an official screening slot at Sundance, Nguyen spent eight days driving up and down the festival’s nearby streets in a van covered with fake birds, frozen blood and BIRDEMIC posters, while loudspeakers blared the sounds of eagle attacks and human screams. The tactic caught the attention of festival organizers, filmgoers and local police, as well as executives from Severin Films. Severin’s executives walked into a screening, took one look at Nguyen’s masterwork, and immediately locked up BIRDEMIC’s worldwide rights for the next twenty years. Discussions are currently underway for Severin to add an additional thirty years to the initial agreement.

Take a look at the printing of the first book to be published on one of the greatest American designers of the 20th century, who was as famous for his work in film as for his corporate identity and graphic work. Saul Bass (1920-1996) created some of the most compelling images of American postwar visual culture. Having extended the remit of graphic design to include film titles, he went on to transform the genre. His best-known works include a series of unforgettable posters and title sequences for films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Otto Preminger's The Man with the Golden Arm and Anatomy of a Murder. He also created some of the most famous logos and corporate identity campaigns of the century, including those for major companies such as AT&T, Quaker Oats, United Airlines and Minolta.

An old one. This my second rock video I made professionally. It’s obviously a riff on Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Hitchcock would have been a pretty bad ass video director. I was primarily known as an R&B rap director at the time. I’m guessing I got the job because Mike Patton just thought my idea was so weird he had to see how it came out. How many rock stars would want to wear Kim Novak’s dress? And I pitched Jennifer Jason Leigh that she would die as Kim Novak and come back to life as Bettie Page. I was my own DP and editor on this, and the tricky thing was I had to force myself to anti-light the interiors with retro cross shadows. We shot completely in San Francisco on the actual locations Hitch made the movie on. I do not have a Hitch-like cameo in here. I am too Korean to hide myself in this world. I have no idea what that bagel was all about. I don’t like it either. I was just tired and loopy and it seemed like a good idea at the time.+ More details

Architectural Projection Mapping | Historical Part NOTA BENE Visual - Pera Palace Hotel, Grand Opening / Istanbul, Turkey October the 29th, 2010 Client: Pera Palace Hotel Pera Palace Hotel celebrates its opening night and 87th republic day of Turkey within an architectural video projection mapping show. The project's concept is based on two parts, abstract and historical, and all of the visuals are prepared by NOTA BENE Visual. Through the show, spectators can come across surprisingly with famous guests from history such as; Agatha Christie, Alfred Hitchcock, Greta Garbo and Mustafa Kemal ATATURK. Istanbul resident and Levantine architect Alexander Vallaury designed the hotel in neo-classical, art nouveau and oriental styles, giving Pera Palace its timeless, refined look. Pera Palace Hotel, was home to many firsts. Apart from the Ottoman Palaces, it was the first building to have electricity as well as the first electric elevator. British writer Daniel Farson described the elevator in these words: “It is the most beautiful elevator in the world made of cast iron and wood... It ascends like a lady who curtsies. Tourists can not take their eyes off this utterly pretty and aristocrat elevator.” Bathrooms that provided the only running hot water in the city were also privileges exclusive to Pera Palace Hotel guests. Tall spacious rooms lit by magnificent chandeliers were host to many unforgettable tea and dance parties. Pera Palace Hotel, a significant prominent symbol of Istanbul's urban culture for over a hundred years, was also witness to many historical events such as World War I, the Occupation of Istanbul, the Turkish War of Independence, the founding of the Turkish Republic and World War II. www.perapalace.com Project Management: Burak Gölge Art Director: Ayşegül Kantarcı A/V Performer: Tevfik R.

FULL ARTICLE: http://vashivisuals.com/directed-shower-scene-psycho/ In 1960, Alfred Hitchcock shocked the viewers by killing the lead actress only 30 minutes into PSYCHO. The scene took 7 days to film in December of 1959. Of the 77 camera set-ups captured that week...only 51 shots were used in the final edit. The shower scene is a master class in filmmaking and displayed an advanced style in both editing and visual style. What I find interesting about the shower scene is how 'un-Hitchcockian' the angles and editing are compared to almost all his other work. This is no doubt due to the contributions of legendary graphic artist Saul Bass who created the 48 storyboards for this scene. What's even more interesting is that both Alfred_Hitchcock and Saul Bass claimed to have directed this scene.+ More details
