If you’re in need of a few extra bucks to get out to see the latest remake to grace theaters this weekend – we can’t help you out. However, if you need something to distract you for the next half hour while dunking your brain in one of the most visually engaging independent and surreal short films ever committed to celluloid then look no further. The story behind how legendary title maker(s) Saul and Elaine Bass came to adapt Bradbury’s short story Frost and Fire seems lost to time – but thankfully with the advent of the Internet – this lost gem can now be yours. You can watch the entire film on Youtube. By Ray Bradbury, Directed by Elaine and Saul Bass. Synopsis: On a distant planet, descendants of a crashed spaceship are subjected to mysterious forces that cause them to age and die in just eight days. They must also live in caves to escape the bitter cold of night and the killing heat of day. One young boy is determined to find his way back to the ship that brought them there.

“Judith” Halloween Tribute Filmmakers reunite for “Honeyspider” in 2013.

Jul 21, 2013

There were no media releases or fanfare but on July 6th, 2013 a quiet little fanpage appeared on Facebook called Honeyspider. Very few details about the film have been released as yet so all we know is that Honeyspider is the latest collaboration from Josh Hasty and Kenny Caperton who previously collaborated to bring us the solid little Halloween tribute film Judith. Writer/producer Kenny Caperton released the first hints about the film on the page: Hey everyone, welcome to the official HONEYSPIDER Facebook page! Honeyspider is an upcoming featurette (long-form short film) from independent filmmakers Josh Hasty (director) and Kenny Caperton (writer / producer). We’re putting a huge amount of work into this project and can’t wait to share it with everyone. Thanks for giving us a LIKE and please share the page! Stay tuned for lots of production updates and behind-the-scenes info. MUCH LOVE, Kenny Stop by the official Honeyspider fanpage and show them some love. We’ll keep you posted on the latest updates as they are...
