Good stories don't always have happy endings.  In a world of chaos, there will be consequences, some one has to pay.  Caos & Consequences is 4 short stories of people living in chaos and the consequences they or some innocent bystander face as a result of this chaos.

      Our hero is also the anti-hero as s/he struggles through life situations of Chaos a.k.a. sin, evil.  Not finding redemption, they find self-destruction and God’s vengeance, Consequences.  
     There are no fantasy happy endings here.  One’s sub coming to temptation doesn’t always end in one’s own destruction, but the demise of a love one or innocent bystanders.  Likewise, a journey to fulfillment can still end in grief and sorrow.  The result of evil is not good, but punishment.  With Chaos, there will be Consequences.

FILM V VIDEO

Ah, Superbowl Sunday.  If you’re one of the millions who watched the most watched football game in recent history you probably enjoyed it just a little better in HD (High Def) than those who watched in SD (Standard Def) (regular TV).  And I’m certain you enjoyed those outlandish commercials that the superbowl  game for some same outlandish reason seems to demand for its annual telecast.

One of the more fascinating commercials that I myself took a particular interest in was the Coming Soon major motion picture previews or trailers that were shown.  The three trailers I remember viewing were Pirates of the Caribbean IV (are you kidding me, but this isn’t a movie critique) Transformers 3 (do we really need to-stop) and Battlefield LA (what, Skyline didn’t give us our fill of mediocre story, action and special FX?)

As I watched the trailers something hit me as the trailer images projected off the TV screen into my eye pupils prompting my brain, which wasn’t very active being that I’m only watching a football game, to process the images and send the images to, uh, well wherever that stuff goes to (another part of the brain) to dissect whether what I saw is actually happening and whether I believe it is happening or not. Without going into a long definition of Disavow or Suspension of Disbelief; whereas one subconsciously, suspends in their minds, the reality or unreality of what they are seeing on the screen, let’s just say I am disavowed when watching movies, barely.

Anyway, so what hit me?  Well, anyone sitting near me could hear me exclaim after each trailer, “was that video?  What I meant was although we’re watching HD which is video, the movie trailers are supposedly film.  Although very, crisp and beautifully looking, the “movie” trailers looked just like the football game and other presentations on the TV screen.  Now before you jump to a conclusion and say, “well it’s on TV,” film is not video and vice versus.  When the two mediums are transferred onto each other there is a decidedly different “look” on the projected medium.  If you ever watched the sitcom “Cheers” you could see a difference, than the sitcom that preceded it.  “Cheers” was one of the first sitcoms shot in a studio on film.  Most sitcoms were shot in broadcast (TV) quality video.  Also, checkout your non HD DVD movies and you will see the difference from a televised program and the filmed movie.

            I don’t know if the above mentioned films were filmed in HD but the TV ads made them look that way.  Don’t get me wrong HD is wonderful. I have to admit I’m old school and came through the film way and consider video, including HD, substandard to film.  Not substandard in the creative use or users but in the direct comparison of film and video as a media only.  Here’s wisdom, video has for years been trying to match film and even seems successful with the advent of HD, but you have and never will hear talk of film trying to be like video.

            So what’s the point?  My point is why, if you have a big screen motion picture (film) coming out and you advertised for it, would you than show that motion picture in a medium or “look” that only compares to the small screen (video) that you are showing it on?  What I mean is movies are big, Transformers, big.  A movie has depth, contrast and chemical reaction of light on celluloid that creates fantasy.  Video is realism, the news, a vehicle accident, several people hurt, the ambulance on scene, no contrast or depth needed, it is real.  So how do you take your motion picture and reduce it to looking like video.  The trailer of Battlefield LA and the space ships looked so real that it becomes unbelievable.  The viewer will eventually start looking at the images as fake and than the suspension of disbelief fails.  I’m sure when the movies play in a theatre near you; they will have converted the frames to a filmic look.  The next time you are at the theatre check out a big summer movie trailer than wait to see the same trailer on home TV.  No, once again, it’s not supposed to look like video even though it’s on TV.  It’s supposed to look like film on TV.  There is a difference.  I believe the average viewer will figure this out, perhaps subconsciously, and Hollywood will have a problem in their marketing departments.

            Although HD, and other higher quality video, will be the medium to replace film, it’s only a matter of time, digital cinema is the future, Hollywood studios and independent filmmakers alike will be challenged to create work of art that is worthy to be called a film or movie.
