$ for Cambodian movies

Thursday, May 29th, 2008
Hey independent Producers!

Got a great movie but it’s played around already at all the “standard
venues”?

Distributors and buyers say it’s not new anymore…but you know it’s
still got legs?

Enable your title to sell direct to the portable player (iPod, Zune,
etc) market at:

((( The iPod Movie Zone )))

May 21: Tim Rann’s What’s On

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008
Hi all,

Finally back in Phnom Penh after a month of eating mexican food, backyard games of football, and Old Style at Cubs games in the US of A.  Good to be back.

I wish that Cambodia had movie theaters so we could watch Indy continue his quest for some ancient relic that a military superpower also happens to want (thank god Harrison Ford found the holy grail and eternal youth in his last epic).  To tide you over, here’s a video of a group of college students with too much time on their hands who created a giant Lego boulder and made their friend run down a street in front of it.

Reminder – To unsubscribe, just scroll down to the bottom of the email and click the link.  I can’t do it manually, sorry!  Same process to subscribe as well.

Not a whole lot going on, but some good stuff this week – enjoy! 

Cheers,

Tim

Pangaea Day

Saturday, May 10th, 2008
[courtesy Java Arts]
 
Dear Friends,
 
I would like to tell you about an amazing world-wide event that is happening this weekend!!  Some of you know about it already…Pangea Day.
 
“Pangea Day is a global event bringing the world together through film.
Why? In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it’s easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that – to help people see themselves in others – through the power of film.”
–Mission statement, www.pangeaday.org
 
It will premiere in our part of the world (Cambodia) at 1am this Saturday night.  You can watch it online as well as on Star World.  If you want to experience this with your friends and neighbors, go to the Gym Bar, #42 St. 178.  They have a great set up and big screen!  But please call to confirm–Randal 012 815 884. The more the better!
 
I hope you all get the chance to see it!
Dana
 
p.s. for those of you receiving this who don’t live in Cambodia, please visit the website to find out when it is showing in your country!
