A good opening and a good ending make for a good film provide they come close together. Federico Fellini, [Recipe for a Good Film], a Fellini Lexicon, (1992)

When did certain film makers/producers start placing the title of the film at the very end of their film? I've noticed this tends to happen with independant/art-house style films? The film just begins and at the very end of the movie, the screen will flash the title of the film and then the credits will roll. Does someone know who started this?

Non-Simpsons Animated Shorts

I am trying to track down a cartoon short that played in movie theaters (or possibly just a movie theater in eastern Massachusetts) in the late 80's / early 90's. My memory is very vague, but it seems like it was a Simpsons clone (including a boy with spiked hair), and possibly a rude dog, but I'm not sure if it actually premiered pre-Simpsons. In my memory the boy was voiced by Joshua Miller, but he's not credited for anything like that. Regardless, he had that same kind of sinister/leering voice. [more inside]

Which niche or cult TV, science fiction or film blogs are as good or better than published work on their subject?

Name this movie about the dead returning to their lives — not zombies!

Can anyone tell me the name of the Scandinavian movie that has people’s deceased friends and relatives returning from the dead? Only they’re not zombies — they look rather well, in fact — and seem rather confused about why and how they’ve managed to return. They try to go on with their lives, taking jobs, resuming family duties… but strains appear, and social tensions. Plus, they just *aren’t* quite the same as they were before. [more inside]

I want to turn a short play into a short film. If completed, it'll be a low-budget affair seen at a few festivals and hopefully online; the play was first performed in 1990 and the playwright is still alive. How do I go about getting the rights to film his play, or see if I can even think about affording it?
