'In Your Eyes' - another Whedon film already in the works

Big news in the Whedon world recently...

Much Ado About A Tweet

Out of the great Northwest our friend GermanCityGirl offers up the big news!

We all eagerly await The Avengers, right? The 2012 blockbuster that brings together a team of superheroes to save Earth... directed by our beloved Joss? Yeah. We're eager for that. Bring on the midnight showing! But when the news of a Whedon-directed Shakespeare play hit the internet... well, let's just say that the indie film caused some major buzz.

Stolen shamefully from the press release:

  • This is the first feature from Bellwether, a micro-studio created by Joss Whedon and Kai Cole for the production of small, independent narratives for all media, embracing a DIY ethos and newer technologies for, in this particular case, a somewhat older story.
  • The film was shot in glorious black and white by Jay Hunter.
  • “The text is to me a deconstruction of the idea of love, which is ironic, since the entire production is a love letter – to the text, to the cast, even to the house it’s shot in.” - Joss Whedon.
  • The film should be completed by early spring and headed for the festival circuit, because it is fancy.

more after the break...

Happy Birthday Joss!

Joss,

Thank you for making all of our lives just a little bit better by letting us enjoy true, creative, intelligent entertainment. Here's wishing you a shiny birthday!

Glee's Dream On for your viewing pleasure

Glee's "Dream On" episode was by pretty much all accounts legen... that's played out isn't it? It was great. It was a more dramatic episode than usual, and Joss's style could be seen in how he cut out a lot of the noise and really let the performances speak for themselves. Most importantly to me? There was only one song with noticeable autotune, and that was Safety Dance so that's forgivable.
