Jpixx Featured on “The Screen” – Dancing Ensues.

Apparently, we kept it civil enough to make it through the FCC. Jpixx Films was featured on the season finale of the new indie filmmaking series, “The Screen” on Sunday night, which aired in scattered markets across the States and of course, online (see above). The team chatted with host Torin Scott about their award-winning film, “In Captivity” which won the 2011 International 48-hour film project competition earlier this year and screened at the Cannes Film Festival in France. Director Jon Abrahams, producer Jessa Gaul and actor Cory Evans represented the film – and spoke candidly about the film-making process, including the difficulties in making a film in 48 hours, how they accomplished their special effects and their experience at the Cannes Film Festival. Following the interview, “The Screen” proceeded to roll the world-broadcast premiere of “In Captivity” in its entirety. Abrahams followed the screening by announcing a unique giveaway to one lucky viewer who ‘shares’ the movie link on facebook (see details here). Stay tuned for some behind the scenes action from the shooting of the show. In the meantime, like Jpixx on Facebook and follow them as they begin development on their first feature-length film.

Jpixx to air on “The Screen” later this month.

Jessa, Cory and Jon were fortunate to get the opportunity to appear on the new TV series about short films called, “The Screen,” filmed in Columbus, OHIO. On the show, we talked about “In Captivity” and discussed some behind-the-scenes moments from the filming, and the travels that followed. The road trip was a blast, and the taping of the show went smoothly. On the way back,  team Jpixx filmed this music video to pass the time. Stay tuned for more photos and a link to the show as it aired.

The Nova Chronicles Begin

With Nova’s FIRST birthday falling on Teviya’s FIRST mother’s day – this video seemed like the perfect combination of subject matter. Check out this compilation of Nova West Abrahams – From birth to 4 months. (hopefully the first of a very long series:)

“Alcoholic” Royksopp Music Vid premiers at BFI

Being a puppet to alcoholism is no laughing matter… or is it?
A finalist on the website – “The Alcoholic” is a video set to the tune of a Royksopp song with the same name. Here we follow a man who finds himself a puppet to alcoholism. Intended to have the look of a comedy and the feel of a tragedy – this video juxtaposes the two with a combination of puppetry and live action. Think “Avenue Q” meets “Requiem for A Dream” Although the film was selected as a Runner Up to the overall competition on Genero.TV – it was honorarily selected to premier at a special BUG event during London’s BFI (British Film Institute) screening. A special writeup can be found here. Credits: Jpixx Films Director / Editor / DOP – Jon Abrahams Starring: Cory Evans (puppeteer), Robyn Meislohn, Cheryl Cochran, Ethan Marten Written by Jon Abrahams and Jim McCullough Special Thanks: Teviya Abrahams, Fareine Suarez, Eran Rubinstein, Havaca Johnson, Dustin & Faye Weant, Chris Curl, Al Gainey, Demece Williams, Judy Sharlow, Heather, Jean, Tango’s Tavern, First Landing State Park Filmed in Virginia Beach, VA – USA

ECSC Recap Video (pre-Irene)

We got a lot of HOT footage from last year’s East Coast Surfing Championship – and we were poised to do the same in 2011, but hurricane Irene put a damper on the 49th annual event, leaving us with a rag tag crew to cover what was left of the competition.
