    American Prince by Tommy Pallotta http://americanprincemovie.com/ In 1978, director Martin Scorsese turned the camera on his friend and roommate, Steven Prince, whose life was more fascinating than what any screenwriter could dream up. The compelling documentary that emerged, 'American Boy' was to become Scorsese’s “lost” film. Having never been properly released, it gained cult status among cinefiles over the years through bootleg copies and influenced a whole generation of filmmakers. Quentin Tarantino took one of Prince's stories about injecting adrenaline into the heart of a woman who overdosed and turned it into one of the most memorable scenes in film history. Prince's influence on American cinema not only reaches much further than his small role as the gun salesman in 'Taxi Driver', he has clearly left an indelible mark. Three decades after Scorsese's documentary was released, Tommy Pallotta brings us 'American Prince', where he draws out Steven Prince once more to recount his days since 'American Boy', share why he turned his back on the entertainment industry and to compose the next chapter of his story. 'American Prince' premieres at SXSW on 14 March 2009 and will be distributed online by SubmarineChannel.com for free through video sharing and bittorrent websites such as Mininova.org and the like. See americanprincemovie.com for more details. Director's bio Tommy Pallotta has produced Richard Linklater's 'A Scanner Darkly' and 'Waking Life'. Directed the feature 'The High Road' and music videos for the band Zero 7. He has also produced several short films including 'Snack and Drink', which resides as part of a permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art. Website: http://americanprincemovie.com

    Pretty Cool People Interviews: Kustaa Saksi

    by SubmarineChannel (1/5/09) 640 views

    Watch in high quality on SubmarineChannel: he thinks its a bit cliché for an artist from Scandinavia , there is no question about it: Kustaa Saksi is heavily inspired by nature. His organic shapes and arabesque lines easily remind us of dark woods, meandering rivers and steep mountain slopes. Kustaa: Especially in Finland, you dont have to go far to find yourself in total wilderness. But this doesnt mean Kustaa has limited himself to natures palette as well. On the contrary: Kustaa loves bright colours, from deep purple and vivid yellow to down right, crazy psychedelic compositions. Art nouveau and pop art from the sixties are also major influences on his work. He likes to mix these powerful art movements from the past in a modern fashion, using the computer in a way it doesnt look like it was done with the computer. Having worked for magazines and brands all over the world, Kustaa has made a new step in his career: designing for 3D. Earlier he did create prints for 3D objects like shoes, but now he committed himself to the real thing - with some help of a befriended artist and an advanced Xerox-machine. The sculptures were commissioned by pop up gallery Maxalot in Amsterdam for an exhibition called Heroes. The first time he saw his computer renderings come to live it was in fact an orgasmic experience for Kustaa. So we joined Kustaa to Utrecht where we witnessed another stimulating session of the birth of an iconic sculpture. Wanna be excited too? Watch the short doc we did on this Finnish hero. SubmarineChannel Crew: Director: Geert van de Wetering, Interview: Lotje Sodderland, Camera: Niels de Roos, Editing: Jorrit Spoelstra. Thanks to the hospitable people of Protospace where artists can experiment with new techniques and materials and Maxalot, the pop up gallery in Amsterdam.

    NEW MINIMOVIE Online form january 2009 at minimovies.org/documentaires/view/ilovea laska August 4, 2006, the personal search queries of 650,000 AOL (America Online) users accidentally ended up on the Internet, for all to see. These search queries were entered in AOL's search engine over a three-month period. After three days AOL realized their blunder and removed the data from their site, but the sensitive private data had already leaked to several other sites. I love Alaska tells the story of one of those AOL users. We get to know a religious middle-aged woman from Houston, Texas, who spends her days at home behind her TV and computer. Her unique style of phrasing combined with her putting her ideas, convictions and obsessions into AOL's search engine, turn her personal story into a disconcerting novel of sorts. Over a period of three months, a portrait of a woman emerges who is diligently searching for likeminded souls. The list of her search queries read aloud by a voice-over reads like a revealing character study of a somewhat obese middle-aged lady in her menopause, who is looking for a way to rejuvenate her sex life. In the end, when she cheats on her husband with a man she met online, her life seems to crumble around her. She regrets her deceit, admits to her Internet addiction and dreams of a new life in Alaska. Directors Lernert Engelberts Sander Plug Camera Misha de Ridder Second Editor Sander Cijsouw

    Pretty Cool People Intervieuws: Martha Cooper

    It was this shock of the new that led to many a trespassing adventure and a lifelong fascination for graffiti. "One day a young boy said to me: ‘why don’t you photograph graffiti?’ He opened his note book and showed me his drawings. The minute I understood that there was a systematic designing and painting on the wall I became fascinated." Photojournalist Martha Cooper was one of the first to recognize the creative power of the New York graffiti scene. In the seventies she started photographing the first generation of spray can artists, now three decades later she is called the Grande Dame of Hip Hop Documentation and has produced a series of much celebrated photo books like Street Play and Hip Hop Files. We talked to Martha Cooper about the early days, about the excitement of going into the railway yards at night, about the way graffiti was used as a secret language between the different NY boroughs. The pictures shown during the interview come from her first book Subway Art, which she published together with that other famous chronicler of street life, Henry Chalfant. One of her latest projects is We B*Girlz in which she presents strong, smart, independent B-Girlz and other Hip Hop females as role models for upcoming generations and to show everyone that there is a significant place for women in this worldwide culture. In addition, We B*Girlz wants to preserve the history of women in Hip Hop by encouraging everyone to collect and archive materials from back in the days and to document the scene as it exists now.
