hannibal

上週四受邀去參加了AXN Hannibal影集的試映會,

這次試映會其實最讓人驚喜的是他們為此部影集特別推出的second screen app,

iOS 和 android 版都有.

其實我一直是個對最新科技很有興趣的人,

對於任何科技新知, 不管是3c, 網路或app等等, 我都很有興趣.

second screen app (也就是指電視是你的第一螢幕, 手機,平板, 電腦等是你的第二螢幕- 不過近來其實有倒過來的傾向 :P) 在美國其實流行已久,

各大電視台都替他們最受歡迎的節目制作second screen app, 或是像Zeebox這樣結合tv guide和眾多影集同步互動的app,

Screen Shot 2013-07-24 at 6.21.52 PM

他們都積極結合社群功能, 例如twitter及時討論, facebook分享,

讓對此影集有興趣的人都能在影片播放的同時與同樣喜愛此劇的人一起討論,

也可同步從app中得到各式各樣關於此影集的資訊, 例如fun facts, 幕後花絮, 演員介紹等等,

甚至可以與電視同步得知劇中人物的穿搭物件, 直接購買,

充分結合social 及 mobile/e-commerce,

不但替讀者帶來方便,

也替片商/商家等帶來更多商機.

而這次AXN首度搭上這股風潮, 替影集Hannibal特別制作的second screen app,

也讓國人能在觀賞影集時得到全新的體驗!

我想, 認識我的人, 或是有在follow我的blog, facebook的人都知道我超愛看美劇.

這次, 受到AXN電視台的邀請, 要跟大家介紹即將於7/29 每週一晚間10點開播的 "Hannibal 雙面人魔" 影集.

Hannibal

(加入AXN的粉絲團: https://www.facebook.com/AXNTW)

講到 Hannibal, 大家應該都不陌生,

之前由影帝Anthony Hopkins主演的 Red Dragon 紅龍, The Silence of the Lambs 沈默羔羊, 及Hannibal 人魔 系列電影應該已經深植人心 ,

hannibal

而這次由名制片人Bryan Fuller為美國NBC台製作, 台灣AXN台播放的同名系列影集,

更讓我們能從更深的心理層面去瞭解人魔Hannibal Lecter, 去解析他.

接下來,

就讓我跟大家介紹一下這部影集全台灣第一個搭配影集同步使用的app!

(但由於本片極血腥, 因此建議大家可先有些心理準備!)

好啦, 我承認我是電視兒童,

但是歐美的影集真的都好好看好有創意啊,

搞得我現在看影集比看fashion雜誌還看得多, ha...

 

之前有跟大家稍微介紹了一下這季最新的影集==> 2012-2013 秋季美劇首映日期及介紹

2012-2013 Fall TV  

現在大部份都已經開播了一陣子,

就讓我很簡短來分享一下我的心得,

幫助大家選劇來看 :)

(以下只寫我有看的, 畢竟我不可能每部都看嘛 :P 然後我個人也比較不愛看喜劇, 所以這邊比較沒有喜劇喔...)

Communication in the media is an increasingly growing and competitive environment, especially among those reporting news and distributing information throughout our society. The revolution in the competitive media landscape since 1995 has altered the way Americans live today. Since 1995, the media industry has had to consider international opportunities as well as international threats. For example, international expansion has caused the United States to do things such as invest in foreign programming networks, create centralized management policies so that if and when the media is expanded overseas, they will be prepared to deal with the challenges of vertically integrated competitors that operate in a more centralized manner. In regards to technology, the paths to access and distribution have opened immensely giving Americans more and more ways to obtain information. According to the Pew Research Center, "Nearly seven-in-ten Americans (68%) now use a computer at least on an occasional basis, up from 61 percent in 1998 and 58 percent in 1996. Almost as many have a computer in their home-59 percent, up from 43 percent in 1998 and 36 percent in 1995" (Pew Research Center, 2006). Traditional news outlets, such as the television, are no longer the main source of receiving information. In our new technologically advanced world, most of society prefers to receive information through their cell phones or blackberries. "Only 55 percent of Americans now report having watched the news or a news program on television 'yesterday,'" whereas in 1994, 74 percent of Americans used television as their news outlet (The Pew Research Center, 2006). Television's supremacy is ending. TV ratings are going down and the internet's usage is going up. The internet has become one of the largest technology breakthroughs in history making business very hard for networks. For example, the majority of businesses prefer their consumers and clients to visit their websites in order to obtain information about their company. The non-stop growing environment of technology has, in turn, changed every aspect of a human's life.

           Consider the social and economic impacts of communication inside the lives of Americans in 2006 compared to those in 1995. In order to keep up with the trends of today's society, people are purchasing new media conceptions every day causing "built in obsolescence." This is when the consumer is initially persuaded into buying a product; however, the corporation quickly manufactures something new and improved making the first product obsolescent (for example: ipod, then the ipod mini, then the nano). Convenience has also moved its way up to the top of the priority list of most Americans.  As a result, our society is becoming more and more alienated and unsociable. We now no longer have to communicate with our peers and/or colleagues face-to-face anymore. It seems our society would rather communicate through emails and the internet than even picking up the telephone. Nonetheless, this increasing technology may have a tendency to harm these companies. For instance, people no longer want to take the time to go to the store and buy DVD's or rent movies because it is inconvenient for them.

            Michael Eisner, who joined Disney in 1984, served as the prince that awoke the dormant giant of animation and infused new life as well as new strategies into the company. Along with Frank Wells and Jeffrey Katzenberg, the trio successfully rebuilt the magic kingdom of Disney with Eisner’s profit multiplier business model and the application of synergy group. With Eisner’s business model, Disney’s creative content was transformed and repackaged in various forms which led to the expansion of profits in a wide range of consumer product domains. Repacking and cross-marketing did not only help leverage “the value of one content source across the company’s many divisions” but also allow the creative content to be utilized numerous times to increase profits for shareholders (Harvard Business School, 1998, p. 2). Accordingly, branded products that originated from the creative content became one of the major channels for revenue for the company. In the end, the result of their efforts was the creation of a brand and a self-sufficient entertainment empire that had the privileges of ignoring vendors from the outside.

因為期待已久的season 7在Keifer做完牢可以出來趕拍之後,

終於這個月要上了--11/23!!!

2-hr premiere!!!

 

看到24又勾起了我心裡一個很大的遺憾.

是甚麼呢...

雖然說我已經離Teen這個年齡很久了,
但是基於我對電影音樂的熱愛跟身為communication major的習慣,
一年一次的teen choice awards即使是miley cyrus主持也是要看一下,
更何況有我愛的American Idol今年winner-David Cook, runner-up David Archuleta,
還有jabba, chris brown, step up 2成員以及其他各路跳舞好手組成的ACDC的表演.

說到現在美國teens最迷的三個人/團體:
Miley Cyrus
Jonas Brothers
High School Musical

我實在是搞不懂...
可能我太老了吧

先說Miley跟Jo Bros, 到也不是說他們完全沒才藝, 可是, 也沒有多有才藝啊...歌沒有太好聽, 而且長得實在是很醜.
完全不懂大家在迷甚麼.
我實在是很佩服Disney的marketing & image management,
總是可以很成功的把不怎樣的小鬼捧紅, 變成一種社會現象.
像是之前的Hillary Duff...(演Lizzy MacQuire紅的, 就像Miley演Hannah Montana一樣).
Hillary Duff現在除了出席events or parties被狗仔拍, 偶爾拍個電影外, 好像也沒在幹嘛.
Teen Queen的地位似乎已被Miley奪去.
但是說真的,
像她們這種很年輕即嚐到走紅滋味, 賺進大把鈔票的年輕歌星, 
到底能紅多久?
好萊塢少了這幾個人, 又有甚麼差別嗎?
他們能夠在處處是誘惑的好萊塢潔身自愛然後安然長大, move on to the next phase嗎?
I dunno.
誰知道他們會不會是下一個Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears?!

不過, 還好Disney至少成功的捧紅了Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera. 
這兩個人都是非常talented, 不斷在自我成長進步的,
we should applause them!!!
As for Britney, 她如果沒發神經, 或許也算是成功的, 畢竟當年她跳舞是跳得很不錯的.

至於High School Musical, 因為我沒看, 也沒興趣看, 所以不適合說甚麼. 不過至少主角長得都還算賞心悅目.

轉回正題,
Teen Choice Awards.

我最期待的其實是ACDC的表演 以及他們跟M&M Cru的Dance Battle.

事情是這樣的...
Miley Cyrus和她的好友Mandy sth在YouTube有個秀, 內容其實就是他們的生活而一些random的表演. 那在Teen Choice Awards之前, ACDC挾著Step Up 2及Jabba的popularity跟名氣, 也經由YouTube號召各方舞蹈好手跟Miley&Mandy喊話, 說要進行the biggest online dance battle.
而在Teen Choice Awards之前兩方就各自拍他們的尬舞宣傳片, 直到Teen Choice Awards當天進行比賽.
想知道詳請請至:
http://www.youtube.com/user/jonmchu 

ACDC的宣傳片:

M&M Cru的回應:


所謂的ACDC, 是the Adam/Chu Dance Cru的縮寫, 仿照MTV台 America's Best Dance Crew-ABDC的名字而來.
喜愛跳舞, 看過Step Up 2的人一定不會忘記裡面的Moose (長相, 跳舞很MJ-Michael Jackson的那個).
他本名Adam, 而Step Up 2的導演Jon Chu (朱...也是我們學校cinema畢業的喔!), 
所以由他倆帶頭組成的團隊就取名ACDC.
ACDC裡面的好手多到不行, 也屌到一個不行.
除了各方舞林高手和原本Step Up 2裡面的choreographer-Dave Scott, 及裡面的演員外,
Jabba也是ACDC的成員--看過MTV's ABDC的人就一定知道jabba, 我超愛也超厲害的團隊, 他們是ABDC的winner, 目前沒有一個團隊比他們更有特色, 有創意又舞技高超. Step Up 2裡他們也出現幾個鏡頭.
另外, 很多celebrities也來參一腳. 例如Adam Sandler, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Snow, Amanda Byres,Chris Brown等.
這樣的表演能不精采嗎?!...很難吧!
ACDC的表演如下:


M&M Cru-Miley & Mandy的團隊也號召了一群跳舞好手跟Carson Daly, Ryan Secreast等和ACDC尬舞.
影片如下:

說老實話, Miley & Mandy有點混, 其實根本看不到他們有跳甚麼, 難的動作都是別人在跳, 她們鏡頭根本沒帶到幾個.
兩邊實力差很多吧?!

最後誰贏由現場觀眾的尖叫拍手聲決定. 分貝愈高的就贏了.

那大家猜猜誰贏?

M&M of course!!! stupid teens, screamed like hell...-__-

personally, i think ACDC totally smoked M&M!
這場比賽只是再次證明了miley popular的程度, 失去了所謂的"比賽"的真正意義...

just heard this song...it's pretty interesting...the lyrics (totally a girl fantasy...but kinda pathetic 2...ha...)and the original SATC theme song in the background....

check it out: (too bad, the official mv hasnt come out yet...)



here's the lyrics:

Fergie "Labels or Love" Lyrics

Shopping for labels.. shopping for love
Manolo and Louis.. it’s all I’m thinking of
Shopping for labels.. shopping for love
Manolo and Louis.. it’s all I’m thinking of

Already know what my addiction is
I be looking for labels.. I ain’t looking for love
I shop for purses while I walks out the door
Don’t cry.. buy a bag and get over it
And.. I’m not concerned with all the politics
It’s a lot of men I know I could find another

and I know that I’m always happy when I walk out the store.. store
I’m guess I'm Supercalifragisexy [she stole that from prince!].. nothing to be playing with
I love him.. hate him.. kiss him.. diss him try to walk a mile in my kicks

(CHORUS)
Love’s like a runway but which one do I love more
No emotional baggage.. just be festive with Dior
Love’s like a runway so what’s all the fussing for
Let's stop chasing those boys and shop some more

1,2 1,2,3 turn the lights on

I know I might come off as negative
I be looking for labels.. I ain’t looking for love
But relationships are often so hard to take
and Prada dresses never broke my heart before
And.. ballin's something that my feet are with
I'ma do the damn thing, watch me do the damn thing.
Cuz I know that my credit card will help me put out the flames

I’m guessing Supercalifragi-sexy.. nothing to be playing with
I love him.. hate him.. kiss him.. just I’m trying to walk a mile in my kicks

(CHORUS)

Gucci.. Fendi.. Prada purses.. purchasing them finer things
Men they come a dime a dozen.. just give me them diamond rings
I’m into a lot of bling.. Cadillac Chanel and Coach
Fellas boast but they can’t really handle my female approach
Buying things that's hard to say
Rocking Christian or Leger.. Manolo or Polo taking photos in my Cartier
So we can’t go all the way.. I know you might hate it but
I’m a shop for labels while them ladies lay and wait for love

CHORUS

Went to see 'Blood Diamond' two days ago,
i knew it would be a good one..cuz critics have all been giving it positive feedback...
but i was still surprised by how great Leonardo DiCaprio's performance was!
honestly, i think this is his best performance ever.
yeah, 'the departed' was good enough, but this one, he totally exploited his potential n brought it into full play.

if u like DiCaprio, u should definitely check it out. n if u dont esp. like him, u'll fall in luv w him in this one.

  • 置頂 2046



Director Kar Wai Wong's movies r known for its ambiguity, vagueness, artisticness n depth,
i was told that they were hard to understand,
so i was never that interested in checkin' out...since i'm not really the artsy type.
(yeah, i am, kind of...'before sunrise' n 'before sunset' r my favorites...but...im just not that artsy, u know..)

but one day, the prof of the 'international entertainment markeplace' showed us a clip of Kar Wei Wong's '2046,'
i became intrigued....(how ironic...my 'American' prof. introduced me to a Chinese film..)
n since my blockbuster movie list was empty, 
i added '2046.'

to my surprise, when i was watching the movie last nite,
i was totally drawn into it.



to me, Wong's filming technique's so different from the hollywood-type of technique that i'm used to.
he's so european, visual n artsy.
the music also played an important role....w/o the music, the movie wouldnt be as affectionate. 
it was so well-selected that it still lingers.
Content-wise,
the story was deep n soulful...
that u really need to put ur heart into it to understand all the different, intricate, intertwined emotions of complex characters.
the story was so real that ppl could always find a way to relate to it..emotionally...
yet it was also so tragically beautiful that it almost seemed unreal.

the incredible performance of tony leung n everyone else just intensified n perfected the movie.
i was so touched by the scene between tony n ziyi zhang that i could feel her pain.
it was almost too painful to watch.
her pain was the heart-broken, unspeakable, exquisite kind of pain that would put u on an emotion roller-coaster ride n could not extricate. 
my heart was aching w her.
i couldnt help but  think of the famous quote from Ethan Hawke's 'Great Expectations'...
"This is my heart, can you feel it?"

2046,
"Everyone who goes to 2046 has the same intention, they want to recapture lost memories. Because in 2046 nothing ever changes. But, nobody knows if that is true or not because no-one has ever come back. "
"In love you can't bring on a substitute."
"Why can't it be like it was before?"
"Love is all a matter of timing."
"The only thing left for me... was to give up."

"All memories are traces of tears."

In the end...i was lost in thoughts, lost in memories, n lost in translation.
