Leopold Keber from LOOM sent me this trailer for their independent film, Tartarus, and it blew me away. The teaser is visually interesting and completely engaging. I can’t wait to see more. The film itself is an alien invasion mystery/thriller that is based in 18th century Imperial Austria.

To check out a second trailer to the film and watch a few production diaries, head over to the group’s YouTube page (note: the videos are in German).

Indy Mogul, the do-it-yourself filmmaking network, have expanded with an all new weekly webseries The Best Short Films in the World. The new series joins Backyard FX, Q&Eric Live, and Four Minute Film School, the latter of which is on hiatus.

The Best Short Films in the World, is hosted by Bobby Miller who chooses four films a week to spotlight based on a specific theme. Past weeks have included dating, prison, nature, and food. This week’s theme is near and dear to my heart, slasher films. Check out the new episode below.

Greetings from the Shore, starring David Fumero

Greetings From The Shore is an independent film by Greg Chwerchak, that stars Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), David Fumero (One Life to Live), and introduces Kim Shaw. I had the pleasure of seeing the film a couple months ago, before it took home more than 40 awards at 70 film festivals. The film is a sweet and fresh coming of age story that is set at the Jersey Shore, which has never looked so good.

The film is screening in New York City tonight at the AMC Loews Village 7 (on 3rd Street), and like all independent films, it could use your help. If “Greetings” does well tonight, the film has a chance to open wider, and it really deserves it.

The film’s official description: “Still reeling from the death of her father, a young girl spends one last summer at the Jersey Shore before heading off to college. But when her plans fall apart, the girl stumbles into a mysterious world of Russian sailors, high-stakes gambling, and unexpected love.
