Langham Short Film Competition – Winner Gets to Go To Sundance Screenings

Was at the Langham Place Short Films Screenings last night and they showcased three feature shorts, namely, the Club, the Spa and the Room and the most interesting part of it is that all three short films were shot with the iPhone. Check out the making of videos here and have a taste of what’s it all about.

The other highlight of the evening was when Sean Seah, Vice President – E-Business, Loyalty and Partner Marketing of Langham, announced the Langham Short Film Competition where the winner of the competition will be flown to London, stay at the awesome Langham London, be able to attend an exclusive networking breakfast with the heavy weights of Sundance Institute and other filmmakers, attend Sundance screenings and if lucky, have access to other Sundance panel events as well. So all budding filmmakers and videographers, this is definitely a competition that you want to look into.

More information on the competition and the three short films mentioned earlier after the jump…..

Trivia of the Day – Name That Movie – 21 February

Hmm…we haven’t done this for quite some time, let’s hit it again. Answer will be posted Sunday.

“Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He’s a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, His own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It’s the goof of all time. Look — but don’t touch. Touch — but don’t taste. Taste — don’t swallow. Ahahaha. And while you’re jumpin’ from one foot to the next, what is He doing? He’s laughin’ His sick, f–kin’ ass off. He’s a tight-ass. He’s a sadist. He’s an absentee landlord. Worship that? Never.”

[Updated: 24] Answer is Devil’s Advocate.

Trivia – Name That Movie – 18 May


Quotes from movie:

“You know what love is? Love is an illusion created by lawyer types like yourself to perpetuate another illusion called marriage to create the reality of divorce and then the illusionary need for divorce lawyers.”

“There are several quintessential moments in a man’s life: losing his virginity, getting married, becoming a father, and having the right girl smile at you.”

Again, answer will be posted Sunday. BTW, this movie is 22 years old.

[Update: 20 May ] We only got 4 correct answers this week, that’s depressing, thought it was easy especially when you have Demi and Rob in the movie. Answer in comments.

Trivia – Name That Movie – 11 May

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”

[Updated: 13 May] 2 got it right, Samuel L Jackson’s famous quote from Pulp Fiction. Luke followed up with an even better quote.

Trivia – Name That Movie – 4 May

“And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny! You have come to fight as free men. And free man you are! What will you do without freedom? Will you fight? … Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you will live at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here as young men and tell our enemies that they may take our lives but they will never take our freedom!”

Well this one is a giveaway, answer will be given out on Sunday.

[27 April] Starting this week, I will be posting trivia questions on Friday afternoons, just when happy hour are supposed to start. Nothing as extensive as Bulldog pub quiz night. Just for fun. Prizewise…hmm…maybe a free round if you can track me down in LKF or Soho.

[Updated: 28 April] Still nobody is getting this, well a tip, this is a shot of the TV commercial in one of the scene. Does Soul Glo ring a bell?

[Updated: 29 April] Troika got it right, name of the movie is Coming to America.
