“They’re more interested in what you could call the nonstory-ness of life — how existence is filled with the devices of fiction, yet they never congeal in a satisfying way; most of our epiphanies are false or self-justifying ones, except for the handful that turn out to be true and meaningful, and that we muster the strength and perseverance to act on and make permanent.”
Well said. For all those who think Mad Men is boring…

This movie is real good.
Most of us are well aware of the convenience that instant electronic access provides. Less has been said about the costs. Research that my colleagues and I have just completed, to be published in a forthcoming issue of Psychological Science, suggests that one measurable toll may be on our biological capacity to connect with other people.
More compelling reasons to put your phone down when you’re around people.
MINECRAFT: THE STORY OF MOJANG is now live and very ready for you to watch. Cue blocks on blocks on blocks.
Even if you’ve never played the titular game, MINECRAFT: THE STORY OF MOJANG is awesome. What started as a game by an independent designer has now exploded into the world with a shower of cubes, fans, and inspired creativity to build anything. And everything.
p.s. There’s even a Deluxe Edition for all you Minecraft superfans.
I loved this movie.

Miss you, NYC.
Team VHX is having a blast in Austin this week. Be sure to say hello if you’re here!
Over the past several months, we have been working closely with our filmmakers to build the tools and features they need to succeed in the digital world. We’ve had the pleasure of helping release some fantastic films you may have heard about. At the same time, we’ve also been quietly working on building a product to let any filmmaker, anywhere in the world, have access to simple and powerful digital distribution. While we continue to polish the product, we couldn’t help but share some sexy, behind-the-scenes screenshots (using dummy numbers).
We know that the most important thing for a filmmaker to do is to strengthen the film brand through their own website. The VHX tools capture all the information needed to optimize film sales and reach your audience. Furthermore, we’ve built a simple yet robust site theming engine to make your film’s web presence a gorgeous experience.
We are starting to onboard films now, in order to gain feedback and make VHX the best product imaginable. We’re opening the floodgates in April! Are you in?
Just look at this, guys!
