Photographers Bitter Over Polaroid’s Demise

Several weeks ago, the Polaroid Corporation announced it will quit the instant-film business in 2009 (not surprising given the rising of digital photography.)  However, photographers and artists are not happy about this at all.

New York Magazine reports; “Now what the hell am I supposed to do?” asks John Waters, who’s shot a Polaroid of each person who’s come into his apartment since 1992—friends, interviewers, delivery men, everyone. “Digital isn’t instant gratification, and those cameras don’t make that sexy sound.”

I sense a Save Polaroid campaign coming. Save polaroids, save the world?

Girl Fight: DOA vs Final Fantasy

Monty Oum, a digital art group, is launching its series named “Dead Fantasy.” It includes the girls from the hip RPG series “Final Fantasy” as well as the girls from the 3D fighting game series, “Dead or Alive.” In this movie, you can see the girls from both games try to battle each other out (with the chicks from DOA as a team against the chicks from FF series).

Here’s what Monty said, “First thing I usually decide on when I make a movie is the “why is this cool?” And as far as this movie goes, the coolest part about the movie is how it ends. Which is what you’ll see after watching it, and why I’m really REALLY excited about getting started on Dead Fantasy II-V. But more on that later.”
