Back in July, Electronic Earth announced that award-winning and internationally recognized band Lab4 had become the composers of the original score for E2’s flagship project Precipice, which is written and directed by filmmaker Sean Young.

During composition, it was decided that a version of the score done for Precipice titled ‘CTRL ALT DESTROY’ would become the intro and title track for Lab4’s recent EP release of the same name. Read more…

Additionally, 3 of them have been nominated to compete for a collective 11 awards across 8 categories at the festival – including Best Picture. Sean Young, Electronic Earth Executive Director, commented on the news,

It’s really exciting to see these projects being put onto a festival platform. For a lot of the participating filmmakers, these projects are the first films they’ve ever made, so to be able to witness them representing these projects at the festival level will be very special.
I’m deeply proud of, and humbled by, each and every one of the collaborators who helped shape these films into what they are and for helping get them before an audience.

The 6th Festival of Films takes place on Thursday September 27th, 2018 at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) Jackman Hall Theatre in Toronto, Canada. Selected or competing films begin screening from 12pm and will run until a break at 4:30pm before the awards presentation from 6:30pm to 8:30pm eastern time.

In a bold move, Sean Young (Executive Director of Electronic Earth), has collaborated with a very significant name in entertainment.

Young’s flagship project, Precipice (written/directed by Young and starring Georgia Hunter), now has an original score written by Lab4, who have an award-winning history of international success, and an impressive library of albums/EPs and singles.

Not getting ahead of ourselves, we wanted to know how this collaboration came about. We were fortunate enough to have Les Elston from Lab4, and Sean Young, to comment on when this (as the media has started to call it) ‘bromance’ started. Read more…

This past week Electronic Earth debuted their first 5 short film projects, screening them for their first audience of other emerging filmmakers: The Intercessor (thriller); Hopscotch (comedy); Precipice (sci-fi/thriller); The Liminal (previously titled Gift – sci-fi/thriller); and Samantha (horror).

4 of the 5 films were production company collaborative projects with each project focusing on a different story type or vision. In the case of Hopscotch, the collaboration was with Alexander Osborne and his production company, Life Light Productions. With The Intercessor, We worked with Singh Along Productions, Chris Kelly Media and director Darcy Love. Both Samantha (directed by Sebastian Ponton) and The Liminal (formerly titled Gift and directed by Artem Mykhailetskyi) were partnerships with Golden Elk Productions. The exception was Precipice, Read more…

Alright.
First off, it’s been a while since our last update, so I wanted to assure everyone that we haven’t disappeared. There were some unforeseen non-project related real life situations that caused Electronic Earth to have to push ‘pause’ on things we’d been working so passionately on – major bummer for you guys who had to wait, but much more gutting for us in having to switch gears away from projects and postpone getting them to you!

With that, I am very happy to convey that we’re back to project focus and we’ve hit ‘play’ again to resume work on a more full scale capacity.

First, I wanted to start off this update with some grand news for us (and possibly for all of our early supporters). Since our last communication, Electronic Earth has Read more…

Principal photography has begun on the proof of concept film, ‘Precipice’, a new science-fiction thriller written and directed by filmmaker, Sean Young.

“I’m very excited to finally be working on bringing this concept to production. It’s an idea that I’ve been developing over the course of the last few years and It’s a thrill to see it start to come to life.”

Young goes on to comment about the principal character in the story, Gia //pronounced ‘guy-Ah’//. Read more…

Recently, Graham Shonfield released a short film project, ‘Awkward Moment’, onto his YouTube channel, ‘Graham Crackers’, that was based upon a true to life event that he felt would be a good laugh, but also to serve as an interaction point to encourage people to share their own regrets and embarrassments with others.

Shonfield comments about why he wanted to tell this personal of a story,

It was an experience that happened to me and I wasn’t sure what to do when I was in the moment, so I thought I’d make a sketch playing out the various options and see what other people might do!

Passion, truly drives Armin Van Buuren. Only cancelling one tour date //sorry Chicago//, and just one night after the funeral of his step-father, Armin reclaimed his position at the helm of his ‘Intense’ tour.

It was a rare evening.

Usually, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre //MTCC// plays host to boating, car, comic, and trade-show enthusiasts.

Instead, last Saturday night, Armin’s team, and Electronic Nation, brought thousands of people from all walks of life to converge and experience Armin Van Buuren, who has stated that for him, Read more…

As mentioned in my last column, August saw Destiny Productions once again present their World Electronic Music Festival //WEMF// to North American electronic music enthusiasts.

The festival’s past few years have seen a vast improvement in the number of headliners that are brought into the performer arena from pairing with a few other event companies including the new Electronic Music Division of Live Nation – Electronic Nation Canada.

Partnering with EN Canada increased the scale of this year’s festival talent roster, and without an increase in event patron capacity, there was an increase in ticket prices that because of the lineup – Read more…
