Friend of TheForce.net & director of Fanboys Kyle Newman is highlighted in a New York Times article online. Kyle was tapped by Microsoft to write and direct The Cube, a short film being used in a promotional contest for Microsoft. Here's a quick bite....
"The contest, which is to begin on Thursday, is called the Ultimate Video Relay and has its own Web site (ultimatevideorelay.com), a spinoff of the Windows Vista Ultimate Web site (ultimatepc.com). The relay reference comes from the invitation to computer users to complete a story titled ?The Cube? in several stages. The tale, a humorous cross between ?The Matrix? and ?The Office? (or ?Office Space?) begins with a six-minute clip that can be watched on the relay Web site. The clip is directed by Kyle Newman, the director of ?Fanboys,? a coming movie about ?Star Wars? aficionados."

**NOTE: There is also a Fanboys update on page two where Kyle is quoted as being back in the editing room for the FINAL cut of Fanboys. "Mr. Newman, in a telephone interview, had encouraging news for the ?Fanboys? fans. ?I have been brought back into the editing room to work on a final version,? he said, adding: ?All the key people are back. That?s all good.?
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
