The Longest Film

Swedish director Anders Weberg will soon release Ambiencé, a unique film that runs for 720 hours straight, or 30 days of continuous screening time. It will be screened simultaneously on all continents, for one time only, after which the director plans to destroy all copies. "My process is that I collect glimpses of light with the camera and take that with me into the computer where the real work begins, taking all these glimpses and arranging and rearranging them into a flow that I feel represents the emotion I try to express. There is a lot of post production behind it where I run all the captured material through numerous processes. I use After Effects for that part, so this will be for sure an ephemeral experience and the only thing that will remain is the memories of the little bits and parts the viewer got to see," said the director.

After months of speculation, Disney revealed the official name at the D23 Expo in Anaheim for their new lands at Disneyland and Disney World: "Star Wars: Galaxies Edge".

Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two signature attractions: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance," said a Disney representative.
