Drone and Stop, Rewind @ Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival

More great festival news! Both Drone and Stop, Rewind will be screened at the 2011 Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival in NYC!

Stop, Rewind (2010)

This festival is particularly exciting for me because I live nearby and will be able to attend (something I have been unable to do with nearly all of the other festivals). It’s going to be a lot of fun!

Stop, Rewind and Clockwise: Part 1 @ FILE 2011

Wow, we just keep getting more and more awesome news! Both Stop, Rewind and Clockwise: Part 1 will be screened at the 2011 FILE Electronic Language International Festival in Brazil! Although Clockwise: Part 1 was screened online at last year’s MachiniExpo, this event will mark the first time that the film is screened at a physical festival.

They screened Clockwork last year and we’re so excited to be part of this great event once again!

Drone Premieres 5/23 @ 8PM PT / 11PM EST

ABP’s new machinima, Drone, will premiere online at indytheater.com on Monday (5/23) at 8:10PM PT/ 11:10PM EST after the latest episode of Chronicles of Humanity.

William Haskell is a top-scoring gamer recruited into the U.S. Air Force as a predator drone pilot. But after a mission goes terribly wrong, the system he trusted begins to unravel before his eyes.

We are very excited to finally release the film after months of work and look forward to seeing you there!

Drone Trailer Released

The first trailer for Drone, our upcoming 17-minute machinima is now online. The film was made as my senior honors project at Brown University.

Stop, Rewind wins Best Animation @ NFFTY

I just found out that Stop, Rewind has won Best Animation at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY) in Seattle!!! This is totally unexpected but very exciting news!

Stop, Rewind preview

My only regret is that I wasn’t able to attend NFFTY this year. It looked like it had a great lineup of student films and I hope it was a huge success!
