Thursday night is the opening of the 2011 National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY) in Seattle, Washington. We’re thrilled to have two films screening at the festival this year. In fact, our sci-fi noir Stop, Rewind is the first film in the opening night selection, which is pretty awesome.
The Pattern, our live-action film about an obsessive compulsive man tracking a serial killer, will be shown on Saturday night as part of the “On the Edge of Your Seat” screening block. We’re very excited since this is the first time an ABP live-action film has ever been screened at a festival!

We are so glad to be part of this great event!
About a month ago I was invited onto The Spotlight, an internet talk show about machinima. This was the first interview I’d ever done so I was a bit nervous, but it ended up being a lot of fun and an all around great experience.
You can listen to the episode below:
Be sure to tune into The Spotlight for a new episode every Thursday at 9pm Eastern. Its a fantastic show with great hosts and well worth your time.
I’ve been working on the site behind the scenes for a while, and I thought it was time to finally make it public. The entire site now fills up more of the browser window and the content area was widened. We’ve also added a new forum. The forum theme is temporary until I can create a new one that more closely follows the design of the blog.
- - WordPress updated to v3.1.
- - Clockwise promotional header.
- - Informational author pages.
- - Better use of contrast.
- - Featured movie in sidebar.
- - You can now reply to specific comments.
- - Smaller images on the Movies page for simpler viewing.
- - And more!
I hope you enjoy the new design and join us on the forum.
I recently found out that Stop, Rewind will be screened at the 2011 National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY) in Seattle, Washington! The festival is one of the biggest student film festivals in the United States and the screening marks the first time an ABP machinima has been accepted into a broader animation category that includes more than just machinima. This is very exciting!
Stop, Rewind will also be one of a small group of films screened at Brown University’s first ever MCM Student Works Exhibition at the newly constructed Granoff Center for the Creative Arts tomorrow night. The other projects include film and video works, written work, animated films, and more. MCM or Modern Culture & Media is the media production and theory department at Brown from which I will be receiving my degree come graduation. I hope the screening will give me the opportunity to introduce machinima to more people at Brown.
Our machinima Stop, Rewind, in addition to other films from the machinima selection of 2009 and 2010 Atopic Festivals, will be screened this spring at the 2011 Videoformes Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France! We are excited to be part of this event!
The festival runs from March 16th – April 3rd. The screening of Stop, Rewind will take place on March 18th.
