The New York Times published an excellent, very favorable review of Coma, Period. that makes us blush with pride (and blood).
In fact, few things in web video are done as well as they are in Coma, Period.
It’s as if new-media-savvy web creators who know how to produce technical quality on a shoestring and web creators with actual creative talent got together and had babies, and those babies made a web series.
That’s not all, so why don’t you go check the rest out?
Amanda Reyes from Fangirltastic has posted a review of The Echo Game. Here’s a snippet:
The Echo Game is an ambitious film that draws from a wide variety of inspiration and a whole lotta commitment to making a good film. There are no miracles here, but it is absorbing and a fun viewing for fans of both the supernatural and the gory.
We’re getting close to nailing down a release date for the film, but in the meantime hopefully this review whets your appetite. Read the whole review here!
We’re very excited to have a 3-page article in the current issue of French genre film magazine L’ECRAN FANTASTIQUE. They contacted us for an interview after our initial screening in September 2009, and we’re very excited about the generous amount of coverage they gave us alongside several major Hollywood productions. This speaks very well for the future of micro-budget independents. The issue is currently on Newsstands all over France.
The Web.Files interviewed Coma, Period. creator Rick Castañeda about his new series, and gives a tour of the Lead Balloon/Psychic Bunny offices. If you’ve ever been curious what wacky contraptions we use to get around the office, now’s your big chance to find out! Check out the interview here.
The Echo Game’s first official review is up, and it’s a great write-up from Staci Layne Wilson at Horror.com. Here’s an excerpt:
There is never a dull moment, and the action is nicely augmented by a great original score (Austin Wintory, who also did Grace) and really fantastic cinematography by Jeffrey Waldron … The Echo Game is a solid directorial first-effort.
Look for Wilson’s interview with Director Brian Feeney and producer Asa Shumskas-Tait in a few weeks.
Markee magazine just released their new issue, which includes a behind-the-scenes look at the cinematography and production techniques used during our very hectic, very brief shoot!
