If you haven’t had a chance to see Frankenweenie yet, please do. It encompasses all the wonderful things, good writing, good directing, black and white, and stop motion. It’s fabulous.

And if my praise isn’t enough, you can have an opportunity to peer into the mind of the writer.

Frankenweenie’s writer, John August, solicited questions from the Frankenweenie going public on the movie’s opening weekend. This week he took the time to answer those questions via Twitter and YouTube.

I can not tell you how much fun this has been to watch. It is so much more authentic and intriguing compared to the interviews and sound bites that come from the movie press junkets. Even if you’re not a writer it’s well worth ten minutes of your day. But, for maximum awesomeness, go watch the movie first.

Why, hello there.

This is PhotoCine News. The definitive blog about the collision between filmmaking and photography. It was started in 2010 by Michael Britt and Lou Lesko the same people who created the PhotoCine Expo.

PCN had a fantastic run for about three and half years. Now it remains as an archive for the internet though the generosity of BlinkBid Software. The industry standard software for bidding, producing, and invoicing photography and motion gigs.

Have a fabulous day.
