My good friend Tony Duggan-Smith built this musical (?) instrument for me, with the intention of using it in horror film score.
It consists of metal rulers which are bowed, a hurdy gurdy like mechanism, a string played with an attached Ebow, a spring reverb (also played with an ebow) some long metal rods, magnets, trash, anything at all to get unnerving sounds.

Automatic Cinema aims at an artistic audience. The software can be used for exhibitions or installations, where a variety of media are served on various screens and channels – syncronized or not. Since all media assets are stored in a database, Automatic Cinema is also useful for documentarists and researchers with a structural approach to their material. And last but not least, Automatic Cinema is open source and can be developed by anybody. Instead of cutting a bunch of videoclips the hard way, Automatic Cinema generates countless versions based upon predefined styles. Probably, you'll end up seeing a movie you've never been thinking of — serendipity in it's best way.

In the 2006 essay film The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, Žižek offered psychoanalytic readings of such pictures as The Red Shoes, Alien, and The Matrix. (See him take on Vertigo in a clip featured here before.) Now he returns with a sequel, The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology.
Imagine you're a game producer in the late 1980s, a week before the deadline and you still haven't got a cover for your game. Exhausted from crunchtime, you tell your illustrator to just rip off some Schwarzenegger action movie to get the job done. Careful, your subordinate might take the order all too literally! When artwork in video games seems to look too realistic to be actually drawn by the artist, then it actually might be too realistic, as many vintage games have stolen images from movies, album covers, paintings and even other games. The subject here aren't simply inspired designs or characters (in that case, we'd be here all day just counting the games influenced by Nausicaä, Hokuto no Ken or Alien), but actual specific images that might have been traced, digitized or just used as direct reference. This first page is reserved for print material that goes with a game release (covers, flyers, manuals, etc.), while on the next page we'll be diving into the games themselves. Some of these are well known, others more obscure, but they all have something in common: They would likely have gotten their artists sued if the original images' copyright holders had ever seen them; a gallery of litigations that could have been, so to speak.
THE WILHELM SCREAM
is a popular stock scream used in countless films, tv shows, and video games. It was recorded in 1951 for Distant Drums, but found it's infamy when sound magician Ben Burtt snuck it into the films he was working on, especially Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
This video is a (pretty) complete collection of the films that The Wilhelm Scream has been in.
Note: There are different takes of the Wilhelm Scream from the original recording. The most popular version is take 4, but you will hear other versions as well.
#000000;">Imagine a kung fu flick in which the martial artists spout Situationist aphorisms about conquering alienation while decadent bureaucrats ply the ironies of a stalled revolution. This is what you’ll encounter in René Viénet’s’s outrageous refashioning of a Chinese fisticuff film. An influential Situationist, Viénet’s stripped the soundtrack from a run-of-the-mill Hong Kong export and lathered on his own devastating dialogue. . . . A brilliant, acerbic and riotous critique of the failure of socialism in which the martial artists counter ideological blows with theoretical thrusts from Debord, Reich and others. . . . Viénet’s’s target is also the mechanism of cinema and how it serves ideology.
