Headlights: A Ride BMX Film – Mike Mastroni

Headlights: A Ride BMX Film

Mike Mastroni

Genre: Sports

Price: $ 9.99

Release Date: December 18, 2018


The latest film from Ride BMX and Mike Mastroni. Headlights is a full-feature, pure riding film that celebrates BMX at its most core. The brainchild of revered filmmaker Mike Mastroni, Headlights got its namesake from the hundreds of hours spent behind the wheel of his converted Sprinter van as he traveled the country to put together 50 plus minutes of cutting-edge street riding. A true mix of styles gives Headlights a style all its own: refined and spot-minded established pros like Ryan Jordan and Calvin Kosovich, progressive and technical riding from Johnny Raekes and Jake Seeley, and outlandishly creative riding from Tate Roskelly and Shawn “Elf” Walters. Shot both digitally and with an old Super 8mm film camera, Headlights is an homage to the BMX video heyday while containing all the progression that every full-length BMX video must have. Full sections from Demarcus Paul, Calvin Kosovich, Broc Raiford, Jake Seeley, Zach Krejmas, Ryan Jordan, Justin Spriet, Brady Tweedy, Mike Mastroni, Tate Roskelley, Shawn “Elf” Walters, and Johnny Raekes.

Genre: Sports

Price: $ 9.99

Release Date: November 27, 2018


Danny Davis, a gifted snowboarder with a knack for riding halfpipe, thinks he has seen it all; from contest podiums on the world stage to backcountry trips in both hemispheres, he has quite literally been living a dream. But it hasn’t been without sacrifice. With what is likely his last Olympic competition at stake, his season plans are thrown into chaos after a devastating crash. During what seems like a routine visit to the hospital, an unusually familiar nurse and an MRI scan send Danny on a strange trip down memory lane. What starts as a pilgrimage to the powder fields of British Columbia, quickly turns into a road trip through Danny’s own mind as he revisits his humble beginnings, past injuries, friendly faces and inner demons. Joined by fellow snowboarders Mark McMorris, Ben Ferguson, Scotty Lago, Mikkel Bang, Nick Russell and more, Danny is forced to face his biggest challenge to date, himself.

Cate Blanchett to Preside over 71st Cannes Film Festival

WOMAN’S HOUR: Call it the Harvey Weinstein effect. Two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett is to be president of the jury at the 71st edition of the Cannes International Film Festival, making her the 12th woman to fill the role in the festival’s history. Spanish director Pedro Almodovar occupied the seat last year.
The festival will be held from May 8 to May 19 – the day of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding – and this year will open on a Tuesday and end on a Saturday.
The 48-year-old Australian actress, who has been vocal in her support of the women who have come forward in the Weinstein affair after a series of sexual assault statements were made against the producer, is also one of 300 female Hollywood actors, directors, producers, agents, writers and executives backing the recently launched Time’s Up initiative to help fight sexual harassment in the workplace.
Declaring she was “humbled by the privilege and responsibility” of the role, Blanchett in a statement on Thursday shared some of her own achievements as a festival regular. Most recently, in 2015, she attended the event for “Carol” by Todd Haynes, a film that she co-produced with the Weinstein Co. and

Budding Film Critic Chance The Rapper Takes Shots At Rotten Tomatoes

Chance The Rapper wears many hats as an artist, activist, and entrepreneur. Apparently, the Chicago native is also a budding film critic and took to Twitter to effectively roast movie review site Rotten Tomatoes for what he felt was a terrible ranking. 

Chano posted on Friday morning that he was taking in the film The House starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, and couldn’t fathom why the site gave it just 17 percent.

Yesterday I watched a movie that I never heard of. It had a 17% on @RottenTomatoes … it was funny as fuck. Wtf @RottenTomatoes,” Chance tweeted.

Chance then went in on Bulworth, which earned a 75 percent ranking. “Nah but y’all gave this shitty racist unfunny fucked up ego trip of a movie a SEVENTY FIVE?!?!” Chance added.

In the end, Chance Rotten Tomatoes rant was just him having a little fun. We’ve collected the tweets for viewing below and on the following pages.

Miu Miu’s Latest Women’s Tales Film to Debut in Venice

MILAN — Miu Miu will present its 14th short film as part of the Women’s Tales series in Venice on August 31 during the city’s international Film Festival. “The End of History Illusion” is directed by dancer, choreographer and filmmaker Celia Rowlson-Hall, best known for her choreography in the hit TV show “Girls” and her work on music videos by Alicia Keys and MGMT.
“I wanted to explore commercialism in the face of fear, creating a spectacle to distract and entertain, an escape from our present-day reality,” said Rowlson-Hall. She set the story during the Cold War era in a Las Vegas nuclear bunker, shaped as a picturesque family home, including a mini-golf course, a dance floor, a swimming pool and two Jacuzzis, designed to survive a nuclear war for an entire year. “When I saw the new Miu Miu collection, there was something about the textiles and colors that made me want to create characters which could come with this space,” she explained. Her vision of Miu Miu is reflected in the spirit of the film — “elastic, grounded, sensitive and risk-taking,” she said.

WATCH: The First Trailer For Bushwick Film [VIDEO]

Before becoming the poster child for gentrification, Bushwick’s only real claim to fame was the BDI Thug, Buckshot (he had everyone in the hood open). Now the piece of Brooklyn that many hipsters and yuppies call home for months at a time is the featured setting for Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott’s action film, Bushwick.

Starring Guardians of The Galaxy actor David Bautista and Brittany Snow, the film centers around a future American civil war where military forces from seceded Texas state invade the Brooklyn neighborhood and declares Martial Law.

With a war going on outside no man is safe from and a gang of trigger happy rebels holding it down in the underground, Bautista and Snow find themselves in a deadly game of survival.

Bushwick debuted back in January at the Sundance Film Festival and gained so much praise that it was nominated for the Narcisse Award for best feature film at the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival in Switzerland.

Check out the trailer below and get an idea of how Trump’s Amerikkka will turn out if he’s allowed to serve his full term.

Kanye West Unveils Making Of Yeezy Season 2 Fashion Line With Silent Film

Kanye West‘s Yeezy Season 2 fashion line was formally introduced to the world via a silent film that not only showed off the Chicago superstar’s creative vision, but also the work that goes on behind the scenes. Although the line has been teased since last month, the film gives fans a first peek at the exclusive creations.

The silent film was posted on the recently ressurected Yeezy.Supply site, and it is exactly what one could expect from a Kanye West production. The lack of sound makes the images flashing on screen compelling. The film shows the workers furiously stitching and putting together the line under West’s stern supervision.

There’s no forwarding or rewinding of the film, so once you hit up the page you have to commit.

You can watch Kanye West’s reveal of the Yeezy Season 2 fashion line here.

Mytheresa.com, Balenciaga Team on Fashion Film

BALENCIAGA ACT: Mytheresa.com has teamed with Balenciaga to poke fun at the glamour, exaggeration — and irony — endemic in the industry with a short film to be released on Sunday.
“Une Incroyable Excuse,” is a two-minute short featuring three young French Ladies Who Lunch, and the shocking discovery one of them makes when she opens her handbag to look for her car keys. The short, written and directed by Danny Sangra and filmed on location at Caviar Kaspia in Paris, is the e-tailer’s first fashion film project. The film makes its debut on Showstudio.com on Sunday, and will be posted later in the week on the Mytheresa.com Web site.
The three main characters wear exclusive looks from the Balenciaga fall runway collection, which are available to buy on Mytheresa.com.
Justin O’Shea, the site’s buying director, said one of his favorite movie lines is “Why so serious?” spoken by Heath Ledger’s Joker character in “The Dark Knight,” and he wanted to create something with a sense of humor. “The line has probably never been referenced in a fashion quote,” said O’Shea.
He added: “The idea of this industry being fun is something I feel strongly about, and that was the starting point behind the

16 Iconic Film Roles That Almost Went to Someone Else

iconic movie actor roles

An old Entertainment Tonight clip featuring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams doing press for The Notebook resurfaced online today. In the interview, Gosling confessed that he actually did a screen test with Britney Spears before McAdams ultimately won the part. “I hadn’t seen her really since she was about 12,” the actor said about his former fellow Mouseketeer. “She’s really good, actually.”

While it’s nearly impossible to imagine Spears kissing Gosling during a South Carolina rainstorm, there are several instances in Hollywood history where similarly iconic roles almost went to someone else. Sarah Jessica Parker may be synonymous with Carrie Bradshaw, but the lead role of Sex and the City was actually offered to another actress before Parker. Ditto with Forrest Gump and Elle Woods. Here, a look at some of the other close casting calls in Hollywood.

Sophie Merchant Screens Film, Talks Music

MERCHANT IVORY: Musician Florence Welch recently wore a bespoke silver skirt by designer Sophie Merchant on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury. “We share a love of beautiful clothing,” Merchant said at her spring presentation, noting she, Welch and stylist Aldene Johnson have been collaborating for some years.
Merchant showcased her Merchant Archive collection, inspired by British sculptor Barbara Hepworth, in a moody short film by Olivia Beasley, screened at the new Soho House in London’s Dean Street. Its protagonists are depicted building a house on a beach, recalling Hepworth’s colony of artists in St Ives. Silhouettes such as silk shirtdresses with cone sleeves were designed with “roundness” to echo Hepworth’s sculptures, Merchant said. In addition to the screening, three actual looks were on display, including a circular skirt of scuba wool featuring a graphic seascape in ivory raffia and a suit of jade silk.

PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ?: Could Zoe Cassavetes have directed a film for the Ritz relaunch?
Word has it the director of “Broken English” has shot a film involving fashion people and designers for the reopening of Paris’ mythic, five-star hotel.
A spokeswoman for the Ritz Paris had no comment.
There’s a lot of anticipation for the reopening — the hotel is officially taking reservations from March 14 — billed as the biggest refurbishment in the history of the 117-year-old establishment.
Cassavetes, the daughter of actor and filmmaker John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands, is very much plugged into the fashion world. Her fashion credentials include being a muse of Marc Jacobs, participating in Miu Miu’s “Women’s Tales” — and being a front-row regular at fashion shows.

Missoni, Ferragamo and More to Unveil Short Films at Milan Fashion Film Festival

Dries Van Noten, Gucci, Kenzo, Missoni, L’Oréal, Chloé, Salvatore Ferragamo, Etro and Valentino are just a few of the international labels that will participate in the upcoming Milan Fashion Festival, running Sept. 20-22.
Conceived and directed by Kean Etro’s wife, the Argentinian Constanza Cavalli Etro, the event, at its second edition, will be held at a new location, the city’s historical Anteo Spaziocinema theater. More than 200 short films, selected among the 600 that have been submitted, will be screened during the three-day event. The screening schedule will include films by already established directors and upcoming talents.
“Here, big names help new ones,” said Cavalli Etro. “The fact that big brands and film directors take part to the project next to new names helps the festival and upcoming talents to get the right visibility.”
A jury, including photographer Rankin, Vogue Italia’s editor in chief Franca Sozzani and producer Lisa Immordino Vreeland, among others, will assign 13 different awards to the film directors participating.
In addition, starting from Tuesday, anyone will be able to vote their favorite fashion film on the Fashion Film Festival’s Web site.
Also, microfashion films of 15 seconds, fitting social network’s standards, will be shown in one of the theater’s rooms.

Chloe Gosselin, David Copperfield Host a Magical Film Premiere

Magical. It’s a word typically saved for the most resplendent fashion reviews. But in the case of Chloe Gosselin’s fashion week party, it is simply the only word that will do — after all, it was held at David Copperfield’s apartment.
The fete, cohosted by the shoe designer and her magician fiancé, was held in celebration of Gosselin’s first fashion film. “All my shoes are named after poisonous flowers, so since the beginning I’ve had the idea of doing something with danger in it,” she said of the film, which centers around a femme fatale. “We built the whole story around that. The whole thing was a family affair. The model is one of my best friends, and the director is my friend. We just shot it last month in L.A.”
After watching the film, which played on loop in a makeshift theater toward the apartment’s entrance, guests, including Leigh Lezark, Natalie Joos, Sarah Easley and Yumi Lambert distracted themselves with Copperfield’s veritable museum of antique magic machines — fortune tellers, strength machines, et al. “I imagine that at the end of the night everything comes alive,” said one marveled partygoer as another complimented the magician on his vast collection of collectibles. “Just

Michael Rowe on Early Winter: “I want to be honest in what I film”

2015-09-05-1441436560-1993541-20772Early_Winter_2.jpg

This year’s Venice Film Festival (La Biennale di Venezia) shines the spotlight on romance. But it’s not about your typical, run of the mill love stories, more like passion with a twist. Whether it is a group’s love of mountain climbing, as in Everest, or the devotion child soldiers bestow on their commandant in Beasts of No Nation, or even a futuristic view of attraction as a virus in Equals, love always seems to come at a price here on the Lido.

No film explores that more deeply, and darkly, than Michael Rowe’s Early Winter, screening in the Venice Days program. Rowe’s lead characters are two functioning people, complete with their own flaws and very human set of mistakes, yet when David (Paul Doucet) and Maya (Suzanne Clément) come together, they bring out the worst in each other, and themselves. Or perhaps that’s just how all couples are, once the fairy tale of romance wears off and day to day life sets in…

Discovering the filmmaker behind the work is what I love most about what I do. In person, Rowe is a kind, honest and thoughtful man. In fact, I expected someone different, darker perhaps, more angry. But that’s the thing about human beings, we’re not just one thing, one personality throughout; we are a blend of many moods, many thoughts and conflicting ideas. It is what makes life, and cinema, so interesting.

I’ll preface this by saying that I watched it when I was five but your film reminds me of Scenes from a Marriage, by Ingmar Bergman… That film has always stayed with me, my parents made me watch it.

Michael Rowe: I hadn’t thought of Bergman, I love Bergman. That’s a wonderful film, terrifying.

Your film is terrifying too. Two people who need each other but are so damaging to one another. Who have been your filmmaking influences?

Rowe: Influences in general are Bergman, of course, and Cassavetes, Roy Andersson, Catherine Breillat, there are others but those are my main ones. And in literature Raymond Carver is a big influence.

What is your background?

Rowe: I’m from a small town two hours from Melbourne, in Southern Australia. In filmmaking terms I consider myself Mexican, I don’t consider myself Australian. I’ve lived in Mexico for twenty-two years. Filmmakers like Carlos Reygadas, Amat Escalante, who is a good friend, Fernando Eimbcke, I think we influence each other in our work. And Michel Franco.

How did you direct in French?

Rowe: I do have some notions, I can understand the language, I studied four years of French, years ago. I wrote the dialogue in English and then sat down with the actors and with their help, translated it into French.

Why did you make your female character, Maya so unlikable, she’s quite a horrible person. Why not make him that way?

2015-09-05-1441436620-8773000-20760Michael_Rowe__Early_Winter.jpg Rowe: Because that’s the way she was. I don’t think about politics when I’m writing, it comes from somewhere else. And I think that if you have two people in a film, it’s about those two people it’s not about all women all men. I think we undergo a tyranny in the world of culture, this pseudo sociological analysis and criticism that we’re subjected to. Everything has to be able to be analyzed and be politically correct from a Marxists, feminist, socialist POV. No, I mean, people are bad — men and women — and people are good — men and women — and most of us are good and bad, in different contexts.

It is also about the situation. She’s trapped in a way…

Rowe: Yeah, she has a horrible life, she’s with this guy who is not the love of her life, and she’s got these kids and she lives a long way from home. She does her best, and she doesn’t have a particularly easy personality — it’s real life.

Was she difficult to write?

Rowe: All writing is difficult for me. It’s the part I hate. Because you are on your own, you’re completely in the dark, you’re six months away from knowing if it works or not. You can’t ask advice of anyone because no one knows. It’s a difficult and lonely process. I don’t like it but it’s the only process that’s important. The most creative process by a hundred percent, compared to directing which is also nice, it’s much nicer you have people around you. It’s much more social, I love it. Writing I suffer through it a lot but want to tell my version of truth. I want to be honest in what I film and I can’t be honest if I’m filming something that I didn’t write. It’s very important to me to really be the creator. I think the heavy creative work is in the writing.

How did you find your two lead actors?

Rowe: I cast Paul [Doucet] and he brought tears to my eyes in the casting, in a scene with no dialogue. He’s awesome. I knew he was in. There was another actress attached to the film and she couldn’t confirm dates. First of all we had to push the whole shoot by ten months because she was having a baby, and said a month after the birth she would be ready to shoot. We waited and after those ten months when she couldn’t confirm dates again I thought, we’re not going to use her. I sat down with Paul, we create together, when I film it’s just the actors and me, and I said, “who do we have in Canada that could pull off this role?” And Paul said Suzanne Clément and I said, “totally!” as soon as he said it, I thought it would be amazing. I think that sometimes things happen the way they’re meant to happen. We had to wait ten months in order to get Suzanne, that’s fine. That’s what we had to do. I would have waited two years. She’s the best possible actress for the role.

How do you feel about cinema as a means to help us understand the world?

Rowe: I believe it should. I like to try to do that in my films. How to understand ourselves, how to understand the world, I think it has that potential and I think that’s always what I’m aiming for.

Although you say you’re not into being politically correct, what are some themes or subjects you won’t touch in your films?

Rowe: I don’t like violence and I won’t do that kind of a film.

So you won’t be making the next Transformers?

Rowe: No, I don’t know…

You would make a very different Transformers, it would be a bit Kafka-esque.

Rowe: It would be so interesting! If they would give me Transformers I would do something really cool. But yeah, I don’t like violence. Sometimes I’d like to do comedy just because I would be so much nicer to myself during the six months of writing. It would have to be a very serious comedy. What I’m interested in is finding out how we can live our lives in the best way possible. Trying to get light moments in there, but I don’t think I can do that in a comedy. And I don’t know if my natural temper is that way.

The world isn’t much of a comedy these days…

Rowe: That’s the thing, it’s a little heavy and it’s not gonna get much better in the next twenty years… It’s not a moment for that. Comedies distract you and make life a bit more bearable but I don’t like looking away from problems. Comedies don’t teach. You laugh and then you go home and the problems are still there.

Is there a film you remember watching as a child?

Rowe: I remember seeing E.T. in a cinema when I was about 11 or 12 and I remember thinking that was the best imaginable possible film ever.

Three words that describe you?

Rowe: What a difficult question! Gentle, I wanna say, and if I reduce it to a single word it will lose — someone-who-feels-other-people’s-pain-very-intensely — “empathetic” is the actual word but it’s not the same thing… And loving.

Scoring Big With Prolific Young Film Composer Giona Ostinelli

Like many, I can get obsessive about film music. But long gone are Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Henry Mancini, even John Barry and the astounding Jerry Goldsmith. We just lost the often excellent James Horner. Meanwhile, John Williams is kinda busy with some little Disney project with lightsabers in it. And upstarts like Anne Dudley, Danny Elfman, Herbie Hancock and Hans Zimmer have become established elders. Thus do I scan the horizon for fresh talent.

Currently my ear has landed upon Giona Ostinelli, a Swiss composer working in Hollywood, a mere 29 years old but with an impressive 25 feature films to his credit, plus assorted short films (over 30 during just nine months studying at USC!) and new-media projects. You can hear Giona’s work this week in POD, a horror shocker by director Mickey Keating, opening in 10 cities and via VOD. While PODPOD on VOD, that’s catchy — showcases Giona’s gift for eerie tension-building, it wasn’t until I visited his studio that the delightful diversity of the young composer’s palette was revealed. He began by screening and playing his upbeat, aw-shucks, orchestral opening for Arnold Grossman’s The Boat Builder (starring Christopher Lloyd) — and I was like, wait, you’re the same guy? You’re not about just one screechy-spooky note?

“With POD, for the ending, I wrote this piece for a choir,” explains Giona of his efficient 2 1/2-week process of scoring the horror, “and Mickey didn’t know what was going to happen. I didn’t know either, because I got to the end of the movie, and I was sick and tired of hearing my sounds, I wanted something different! So I said, ‘how about a choir?’ I sent it to Mickey, I said, ‘Mickey, you’re allowed to hate me for what I’ve done with the ending — because it’s totally different from the rest.’ So I sent it to him, and he was like, ‘that’s an awesome surprise!’ He didn’t expect it, and it worked great.”


Talking POD

Indeed, viewing POD — which is not unlike a meaner, scarier, extended X-Files episode (two siblings check on their brother in a secluded Maine house: and what they find ain’t pretty) — one does not sit around thinking “choir” — and right away, that’s the aura of Giona: an innovator. He seems to have “surprise” coded into his DNA. I ask about scoring horror — does the director impose certain obligatory stings and so forth?

“He always invites me to his place,” says Giona of Mickey, “to his editing bay, and then he shows me the film. He’s like, ‘Here’s my idea, roughly, how it is — just take it, and surprise me!’ So I was working on it, and he has these flashbacks, and I was like, ‘Why don’t we try to do something cool?’ I know that sound design is going to cover that, to a certain extent — but when I watch a film, and I see that type of thing, I would like it to be pressing! (Giona makes a disturbing mouth noise) So I was like, why not take the chance and do it?”

This attitude serves Giona well — he takes the chance and does it — and he and I enthuse over our love of Dave Grusin’s winning score for The Goonies: which, it turns out, inspired us both to rush headlong toward the arts. Heh.

“I remember, when I was a kid, saying, ‘I want to do this!'” gushes Giona. “I started playing drums when I was five, piano when I was almost nine, doing choir when I was 16, playing in many bands — metal bands, rock bands, blues bands, jazz trio — you can see in the types of films I do, I always do different genres. (laughs) I always wanted to do film music, but growing up in Switzerland, it’s not a career choice. In Switzerland you either become a banker, a lawyer, or a doctor.”

Or Jung, I add (though that job application proves fairly stringent).

“Or a watchmaker!” adds Giona’s concert-pianist partner — and we all grin knowingly: watches — how 20th-century!

I elicit a laugh from Giona by imitating the beloved Danny Elfman style (conveniently: “Oompa-Loompa, Oompa-Loompa…”), and he admits he’s a big soundtrack buff, raving up Thomas Newman: “His sounds are so amazing,” he says, emphasizing Saving Mr. Banks, “but for some reason, I love tons of his scores, but that one! Thomas Newman, you listen to him, it’s very simple, and it sounds great. Then you go to Hans Zimmer, he has 200 tracks, it sounds great — a completely different style.”

Giona is practically gasping as he enthuses: “I like listening to scores, and I buy so many! How did they get this sound?!”

On cue, Mickey shows up to join his composer (see videos for the guys in action), and the two rave up their partnership on POD but also Ritual (2013) and the forthcoming Darling (2015). “We’ve known each other for so long,” says the world-weary 25-year-old, “that the whole process is really creative. I feel like so much of the process of working with composers and editors, there’s this learning curve. But me and Giona can just riff back and forth.”

“And also, the cool thing about Mickey,” adds Giona, “not many people do this, but working with Mickey is like family. It’s always the same editor, same sound designer, same cinematographer, and we all know each other. It’s so cool! You feel part of a family, and you’re not afraid to experiment.”

“Yeah, it’s great,” agrees Mickey. “And I mean, it really helps create a process. It doesn’t seem so formal. The movies are all sort of hand-made and home-grown, and that’s what’s exciting about them.”


Talking Darling

“I’m finishing Darling, and Mickey’s finishing editing Carnage Park,” chimes in Giona, contrasting both the visuals and sounds of the former (lensed in New York), and the latter (lensed in the California desert).

“What’s great about it is they’re such different films,” adds Mickey. “Darling‘s so weird, but classical and ambient, and Carnage Park‘s like a Peckinpah western with the sensibilities of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and stuff. So they’re all different subgenres of horror, and it’s so cool to be able to have somebody who can just do it all!” Mickey gestures to his friend, Giona.

“I’m sure that if I wouldn’t try to push myself,” sums up Giona, “to do drama, to do comedies, dark comedies, trying to do a romantic film or Christmas film–“

Two Christmas films,” I remind him.

“–two Christmas films. If I wouldn’t try to push myself, and go to places that I’m afraid of, that I’m not comfortable in, then I wouldn’t be so good even in the horror genre. But because I always try to explore as much as possible, then everything becomes useful.”

POD is now playing in select theaters, and on VOD.
