Filed under: Film FlickersInspiration

Awww!

With a Piece of Chalk is a short film that needs no dialogue to explain why its young protagonist uses breakdancing to escape distract himself from a terrible upbringing.

Ch-ch-check out 12-year-old Justen Bieber Beer busting some sweet moves on his homemade hopscotch court (above)!

This kid is more graceful than a gaggle of galloping gazelles!

If you watch uplifting little flick and don't shed a few salty tears, we suggest seeking out a medical professional to ensure your ducts are in working order!

Eva, Zoe & Olivia To Make Their Glamourous Directorial Debut

Eva Longoria, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde are all turning director for Glamour magazine's Reel Moments project.

For the project, each actress got behind the camera to tell the story of a real Glamour reader.

Eva's short film is about Alex, a 35 year old who gets a double mastectomy. The Desperate Housewife explains:

"First of all, it was a surprisingly humorous story for such a serious topic. It also demonstrated the camaraderie and close friendship of a group of women who are trying to help their friend give her boobs a proper send-off before her double mastectomy. And it had a great story arc. These are short films, and you need to be able to tell a story in less than 20 minutes."

Zoe's short focuses on Kaylien, a school girl who is autistic and feels like an alien. Saldana was inspired by the story after her 7 year old niece was bullied and thought "shedding light" on that was important.

Saldana also cast some big names in the 20 minute flick: her The Words co-star Bradley Cooper and Malin Ackerman.

As for Olivia, she's using the experience to make herself a better actress. She said:

"I’ve always kind of mourned the small number of female directors in this business and I kind of complain about it a lot without doing anything. So instead of whining about there being a lack of female directors, why don’t I become one and create my own story."

All three of the films are set to premiere on October 24th at the Directors Guild of America Theater here in El Lay.

The Toys Are Back! First Images Released From Upcoming Toy Story Short Film

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyOscars

first toy story short film images released first toy story short film images released 2

Toy Story 3 MAY have been the final feature film in the series, but we have definitely not seen the end of Woody, Buzz, and the gang.

We'll be seeing them at the Oscars, and we'll also see them in Hawaiian Vacation, a six minute Toy Story short to premiere before Cars 2 when it's released on June 24. The first images from the short have been released (above).

Here's what director Gary Rydstrom had to say about his short film:

'Woody becomes kind of like what's-his-name on Love BoatCaptain Stubing!”

Sounds like fun! We're glad that the Toy Story crew is sticking around, but not in more full length films.

After the powerful way that Toy Story 3 ended, we'd say short films are the right venue for these characters. Wouldn't want to ruin the integrity of the series by making more unnecessary sequels.

Are U excited for Toy Story short films?

More Toy Story On The Way!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

toy story short films on their way

Toy Story 3 had a perfect ending, so they shouldn't make a fourth film, BUT we want more Toy Story!

Pixar has come up with a solution for us.

Here's what Toy Story 3 producer Darla K. Anderson said when asked about Toy Story 4:

"You know we have no plans for it at this point."

When asked further questions, here's what Anderson said:

"No we're really not. We really worked hard at bringing Toy Story 3 to a conclusion."

And here's what they'll be doing to provide us with more Toy Story:

"We do have the short films that we are working on because we love the characters so much and want to keep them alive. One of the short films will be on the front of Cars 2 next summer. It's a short film with the Toy Story characters and you'll see a lot of the old favorites and stuff."

Here's Anderson on whether or not the short film's events will take place after the events of Toy Story 3:

"We can't talk too much about it but it involves all the new Toy Story 3 characters and the classic characters too. So it's very cool but there are no plans for a Toy Story 4 at this point."

We think more short films are the way to go. As much as we loved Toy Story 3, we wouldn't want a perfect ending to the series to be compromised with another film, which really isn't necessary.

Are U excited for Toy Story short films? Would U like to see Toy Story 4 somewhere down the line?
