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."
