The End of Oscar Season and What’s on the Horizon
So, the Oscar season is officially over. As saddening as the result was, I am fully ready to move on and focus on other things. While I do consider this site to be a year-long awards information center, let’s face it, there’s really not going to be a lot to say about it for quite some time now. Therefore I will be offering a few Awards Updates now and again until the season really kicks in.
However, for the majority of the time, The Edge of the Frame will be focused on movies themselves. I plan on focusing more on reviews, trailers, and news updates. I also plan on continuing with certain features, such as the New Additions to the Mitchell List, my assorted lists, as well as a new feature I’ve been planning that ties in with AFI’s own Top 100 List.
On top of all that, I plan on posting more information and updates on my own productions. While it’s my goal to become a professional critic and pundit, I still do spend a lot of time working on films, themselves. When I started this blog, I had originally planned on including a lot of features having to do with my own work, but never really got around to it. I intend to reverse that by posting everything from production stills (including the one above from a short film, “The Mystique” which I recently key gripped for), screenshots and even short films that I’ve edited either for class or my spare time. It should be a blast.
To kick this off, I’ve posted a trailer for a film that I am undoubtedly looking forward to in the coming year. Anyone who played the computer game “Oregon Trail” as a kid has to be excited for what is practically the film adaptation, “Meek’s Cutoff.” While looking a lot more dry and dark than the children’s game, this film really looks to be something of great, unorthodox adventure film. I highly doubt that the film will be up for any awards and you’ll probably have to search hard to find it in theaters. Yet this unusual-looking western starring Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Will Patton and Bruce Greenwood looks like a 2011 film I will be sure not to miss.
According to IMDB the film will have a limited release on April 8th, but I wouldn’t hold any breath to see this get out of LA and NY by that point.
