HitFix has an exclusive clip from Kelly Reichardt's new movie Night Moves, which opens on May 30th. As they explain it, "It's tough to sell this kind of slow-burner with a single clip, but this one...gives a pretty precise indication of the indie thriller's brittle, nervous tone, with every exchange between the characters from a certain point building the fractious tension." Watch below and read more here.

Vulture's Jennifer Vineyard talks to director Brin Hill and the cast of In Your Eyes about how much involvement writer/executive producer Joss Whedon had in the final movie. Says Hill, "We did the table reads at Joss's house [where Whedon last shot Much Ado About Nothing]. So we were walking on the ghosts of Much Ado. He watched dailies every day. He was weighing in on things. He was in and out of the edit room." Read the full story here.

Realscreen's Manori Ravindran examines the risk and rewards associated with a new wave of live stunt television (such as Felix Baumgartner's Space Jump). Says Sharon Scott, president and gerneral manager of Peacock Productions (currently producing an upcoming live special about the first attempted wingsuit flight of the Mt. Everest summit), "There was a time in cable where live was expensive and perishable and not worth the money, because everyone was building brands and successful strands, and live is a big chunk of money just for one night. But now, given that there are so many different ways to view, and no one views in real time, the only way to get people to do something as a group and talk about it the next day at the water cooler is to go live.”

Vikings' impressive experimentation with augmented reality lets users download an app to view and interact with 3D renderings of the show's characters. The campaign was created by L.A. agency bpg. Explains Cool Hunting, "Bpg made the trek to Ireland—where the show is filmed—and set up 63 8K-resolution digital cameras to capture every angle possible angle of the 10 different actors in Viking costumes. This 3D photograph is then turned into a 3D model, which allows it to have the AR possibility. By opening the Ultimate Reality app, fans can scan the flat image and then can take photos of themselves next to a 3D Viking or study the character up-close and in detail."

Multimedia art duo SWEATSHOPPE (a.k.a. Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw) were responsible for a video painting exhibition that took place at the Brooklyn Museum this week. Explains The Creators Project about how it works, "To elaborate, video painting includes special system where a paint roller is embedded with infrared LEDs, which are turned on by a switch at the bottom of the roller. A Kinect camera is set up to "see" the LEDs, which alerts a computer of the roller's position and subsequently splashes video images on any surface. Last night's visualizations were filled with surrealist iconography—giant laughing mouths, uncooked fish, and more, all distinguished by hyper-vibrant colors. The museum-goers ate it up and there was a line all night."

Hanly Banks talks to Cool Hunting about shooting her music documentary Apocalypse: A Bill Callahan Tour Film, which was shot over a year of the musician's tour. She says, "I couldn't really capture—and no one could, unless if you're doing a posthumous documentary—the entirety of Bill's work. I really wanted to focus on what was happening at the moment, rather than encapsulate everything. You can go so many places when making a documentary. I kept it specific to this tour as it gave me leeway in terms of focusing." Read the full story here.
