Ark The Series - Director Trey Stoked Interviewed by FilmNut


FilmNut Interviews Director Trey Stokes

Director Trey Stokes, Ark Pink Five was the guest tonight. Ark is an exciting new Sci-fi thriller web series starring Renee O'Connor (Gabrielle from Xena: Warrior Princess). Stokes talked about it all from concept to completion. Having a strong visual effects background definitely came in handy for Stokes on Ark. We show a clip from Ark with and without effects with Trey then explaining how it was done. Pink Five is a Star Wars fan film that has won multiple awards and is simply a must for an fans of the original three movies.

You can find out more about Ark with Renee by going to the AUSXIP Renee O'Connor Ark subsite

Xena Warrior Princess Episode Promo S1 E22 Callisto - Two Versions


Season 1 Episode 22 Callisto – two episode promos. A little different to how I normally post the episode promos for Season 1. There are two versions - one is a normal ep promo for the episode and the other was during the countdown to the series finale "A Friend In Need" that looked back at the pivotal episodes of the show.

In December 1996 when I joined the Xenaverse, 9 episodes into Season 2 (my first S2 episode was A Solstice Carol and The Xena Scrolls on the same tape (how that for confusing a newbie fan) I hadn't seen Season 1 or episodes 1-8 of Season 2). I have a very distinct memory of when I first joined the Xenaverse in asking who Callisto was since the chatter was about this character. In the weeks that I was completely oblivious to the show, S2 Episode 5 Return of Callisto, then S2 Episode 7 Intimate Stranger, S2 Episode 8 Ten Little Warlords were shown with Hudson Leick as the fantastic Callisto. Feels like a lifetime ago but so much fun!

Season 1 Episode 22 Callisto

Xena (Lucy Lawless) must battle the fierce woman warrior Callisto (Hudson Leick), who is bent on revenge for the death of her family.

It's time for The Hot 100 again!

Our first annual Hot 100 (in 2007) came about in response to a Hot 100 list published by Maxim magazine. readers found Maxim's list to be "generally unbelievable and incorrect," so we invited you to create a list of your own and, thus, an annual tradition began!

In our endless quest to provide a forum for lesbian/bi women to express your opinions about all things related to pop culture, we present the Hot 100 poll again this year. If you find yourself frustrated by mainstream (i.e. heterocentric) culture's definitions of "sexy, "attractive," or, well, "hot," then this is your opportunity to proclaim your appreciation for the women who you think embody those terms.

In the form below, you can submit your nominations for the 10 women you think are the hottest on the planet. They can be gay or straight, young or old, and of any race or nationality — basically any woman you find desirable. The woman with the most votes will be No. 1, the woman with the second highest number of votes will be No. 2, and so on down the list (which means it doesn't matter what order you list the names in the form).
