Awesomeness!  
As you all know, English is not my native language. I learn new words, terms and expressions all the time. While "awesome" is a common word, my good friend and spiritual founder of this comm - Zach - has told me that his favourite word would be "Awesomeness!" at the moment. That was new to me. I think he actually referred to curling ;) bobsled with it. Or was it German chocolate? Whatever, it was one of the many topics Germans and Americans talk about :). But I don't want to bore you with my private stuff, I only think "Awesomeness!" is the perfect subject for this entry.

The guys from FilmSchoolRejects published another of their wonderful interviews, which are so fun to watch because they give the people time to talk. To answer questions, explain things and not only a "You have 20 seconds until the next commercial" quick shot.

They did a similar interview at SXSW 2009, for Women in Trouble. Then they talked with Sebastian Gutierrez, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Marley Shelton, Cameron Richardson, Carla Gugino and Rya Kihlstedt. The file I've uploaded last year is still active, if you like to download the 20 minutes interview, you'll find it here: SXSW Interview 2009

The current interview has Carla Gugino, Sebastian Gutierrez, Malin Akerman and is about 30 minutes long. They talk about the 'projector incident', 'Women in Trouble' and that 'Elektra Luxx' is a little more ambitious, how much they liked the after the credits scene with Joseph Gordon-Levitt from WIT (Click) and that his part is bigger in 'Elektra Luxx', how Sebastian developed the movies, why the actors love to be part of the films and so many other interesting things, you really should watch it by yourself:

Carla, Sebastian, Malin and Emmanuelle did another nice interview, a few hours before the first premiere. This time at IFC. Also interesting and fun to watch. It was a live stream, but the quality of the captured video turned out to be pretty good.

Here's an example screenshot: IFC Interview Cap</a>

The interview is about 15 minutes long, if you're interested in it: IFC Interview 2009


Last but not least - "Girl Walks Into a Bar"

This film by Sebastian Gutierrez, that was also shot in ten days, stars Carla Gugino, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rosario Dawson, Robert Forster, Danny DeVito, Zachary Quinto and was inspired by a scene from Elektra Luxx. It will be released this summer - on Hulu - for free.

I've heard about it before, but had no details yet.

Awesomeness!
This video is indeed Awesome & i'm flattered that you mentioned me & my new fav word lemon_tree. LOL

Man, I really envy that Sebastian. He's smart, talented & best of all, he's sitting in between the Gorgeous Carla & Malin Ackerman. What guy wouldn't want to be in his place right now?

The interview was great as well. Very intimate & casual & funny as well. Can't wait to see this & I hope it comes out soon.

Awesomeness indeed!
I was hoping the movie would get some kind of press but wow that's wonderful. I loved WIT, and this one looks amazing. Can't wait! thanks for busting your chops for us!

Damn about that other movie... No way you can get to Hulu if you're outside the US!
I'm sorry to ask but since you offered, would you please upload the video somewhere? I can't seem to stay connected long enough to download it. Thanks again

I totally agree with you, the few things I've seen and read about Elektra Luxx are more than promising!

thanks for busting your chops for us!

You're welcome. Both for the compliment and the English lesson! *lol* (And there I thought chops is only something to eat ;P)

No way you can get to Hulu if you're outside the US!

Yes, it would be a pity if the non-US audience would have no chance to see the movie. I would think that Sebastian is aware of that problem, maybe Hulu won't be the only service where the film will be shown. We will see.

I'm sorry to ask but since you offered, would you please upload the video somewhere? I can't seem to stay connected long enough to download it. Thanks again

That's fine, really! It's uploading while I'm writing. I will add a link to the entry in a few moments.

lol. Well that's one more idiom under your belt (oh look, another one :D) and honestly I was stunned to learn English was not your first language, I have never seen any of the telltale signs. You vocabulary and grammar are perfect!

As for the Hulu movie, it might just be available first on Hulu and it will probably be on the Elektra Luxx DVD as a bonus!

And thanks again for the upload, you rule!

Oh you're sweet, thanks so much for the kind words :)

And what can I say - "under your belt" was indeed new to me. Thanks for enhancing my English skills!

I'm not sure if "A Girl Walks Into a Bar" is connected with the WIT trilogy. I rather think it's a stand alone movie. Of course I can't be sure, we have to wait for more information about it.

You're welcome but my words are not kind, they are honest, I assure you.
And your English skills don't need any enhancing, believe me. If idioms can help you add a little color to it, I'm glad to be of service but you really don't need that to be fluent.

"A Girl Walks Into a Bar" lol... what a brilliant title! I just thought that if it was at all inspired by the Elektra Luxx movie, they might include it on the DVD... a girl can dream, right? ;)
