Good news for David Martin-Porras. The writer and director of 'Inside the Box' has been awarded with a scholarship from Programa Ibermedia, a fund providing assistance to Latin American cinema, to attend to a screenwriting lab in Mexico City with 'A Texas Story', the feature version of the short film 'Inside the Box.
'A Texas Story' will be produced by LA Panda, who already produces 'Inside the Box', starring Wilson Bethel, Summer Glau and Regina King. Both the short and the feature deal with HIV criminalization.
Assuming everything goes well, I would be very pleased if Summer Glau and the other actors of Inside the Box reprise their role in the feature film.
Congratulations to David Martin-Porras and let's hope this project will see very quickly the light of day.
We should be able to watch 'Inside the Box' very soon as soon as all the post-production work is done.
Peter Panzerfaust's writer Kurtis Wiebe and artist Tyler Jenkins had a table at last Chicago Comic Con, where they promoted their creations, signed Panzerfaust issues and made sketches for fans.
They were later joined by Peter Panzerfaust motion comic & TV series Executive Producer Jeff Krelitz for a Q&A panel, where an exclusive trailer for the upcoming motion comic was unveiled.
Wiebe and Jenkins also had the opportunity to meet Ron Perlman, who's voicing the evil Kapitan Haken in the motion comic.
Here's a pictorial narrative of their whirwind tour to C2E2, including photos of the Peter Panzerfaust cover prints signed by the motion comic cast, namely Elijah Wood, Summer Glau and Ron Perlman:

Thomas Dekker and Summer Glau had great chemistry on screen. And that is a good thing because their characters in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, respectively John Connor and his Terminator protector Cameron, were obviously attracted to each other (or written that way if you like), and John must struggles with his feelings for Cameron. Among the TSCC fandom, the belief that John and Cameron are (or will be, or should be) in a romantic relationship is known as Jameron. It is really the big ship of TSCC and various comments by both cast and crew show that Jameron was canon.
Here are quotes from various interviews with Summer Glau and Thomas Dekker, inwhich the focus is on the attraction between John and Cameron:
Summer: There's a girl in your life, which has been fun for me as a robot,
I cannot really feel jealousy, but...
Thomas: I think she does.
Summer: In a way, I think she does.
Interviewer: You dont like your protector anymore?
Thomas: John has always had a tough thing because John's always really been in love with you, and he doesn't want to admit that.
Summer: Her whole purpose in life is to protect him so when he's gone she's lost.
And shes having a really hard time with him having another girl in his life. He meets this girl at school and I like to think that Cameron is somewhat jealous.
Summer: Yeah, we have this bond that we're as tight as family. We belong together.
Interviewer: Is any of that going to happen? Have you developed that at all this season? (John and Cameron)
Dekker: Yes. Yeah. In a very surprising way. But we haven't even shot that yet. But I know it's coming. So I'm excited to get back to shooting.
Summer: And I think if my character was experiencing anything, it might have been insecurity about whether or not she was capable of doing her best at protecting John anymore.
And I think she was really struggling with the insecurity of having a new girl in John's life, Riley ... and I think that that's all going to come to a head toward the end of the back nine [episodes].
Interviewer: But I want sexual tension. I need that between you two to keep me watching the show.
TV IGN: Is it possible to have a tender moment with a machine? Dekker and Glau areso good in this moment, and they manage to create a unique moment that could serve to underscore the central premise of the series. It's also a painful moment – weird and surprising and oddly thrilling – all while you knew it was occurring in what was likely the final episode.
Summer: I have to say [there was] a scene that I read in my network test. It wasn’t in the pilot kind of talks about her past with John…actually her future with John. She meets him in the future and he sends her back. And that scene…it was a very emotional scene and Cameron cries in it…And the way she talks about John is as close to love as I can imagine.
Thomas: Now he knows that he's in trouble and that everyone wants to kill him which is kind of a downer, ya know. & he in the first episode I think when he meets Ms. Cameron over here he really thinks hey, ya know, I'm gonna get lucky and then he finds out she's a robot and that's a really big down and that just kind of adds to his depression.
Interviewer: You guys are both great looking and are both playing kind of playing the lead roles, now he's young but is there going to be maybe a relationship coming down the road because you're kind of protecting him.
Summer: I am. You know it's really complicated at this point of the story all three of us are trying to figure out what we mean to each other, how we feel about each other, how we're going to work as a team and sort of as a dysfunctional family so at this point it can really go anywhere.
Thomas: It's a strange question because she, as my protector Terminator, she is probably more dedicated to me than anyone else in my life will ever be, so that's a tough thing to handle mentally.
Thomas: Do I have spare parts for her to put her back together? I think John would LIKE toput her back together but no I don't think that has happened yet at all but I'm not saying it won't.

The Cast from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was out in Hollywood on September 13, 2008 to promote the show at Golden Apple Comics.
Actors Brian Austin Green, Garret Dillahunt, Summer Glau, Thomas Dekker, Leven Rambin, Richard T. Jones, and Shirley Manson, showrunner Josh Friedman and executive producer James Middleton were there to meet and greet the fans, as well as sign autographs and participate in a Q&A session. The Q&A followed an early viewing of Episode 2x02, "Automatic for the People".
The following flyers were made for the occasion:
Here are production images from the Superman/Batman: Apocalypse animated feature voice starring Kevin Conroy as Batman, Tim Daly as Superman, Summer Glau as Supergirl/Kara Zor-el, Andre Braugher as Darkseid and Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman.
The images below features design work and character models sheets for the DC Universe Animated Original Superman/Batman: Apocalypse made by storyboard artist Sam Liu, including Liu's own comments for some of the characters sheets.
Superman/Batman Apocalypse hit the shelves last Tuesday. I had the good fortune to be asked to do the designs for this movie. Even though I don't consider myself a character designer, it was a lot of fun and a lot of stress trying to emulate Michael Turner's style. Special thanks goes out to Jeff Johnson for doing a ton of the heavy lifting with the finishes, turns and, and incidental designs.

Jeff Johnson did this turn on Barda with some touch ups from me. Especially the face since she was my favorite of this movie and I had a pretty specific look I was trying to get.
Warner Home Video released on the day of Superman/Batman: Apocalypse's official release, i.e. September 28, 2010, three videos to promote the direct-to-video animated feature. Two clips feature voice actor Summer Glau discussing the role of Supergirl, and the other is a clip from the actual animated feature.
Bonus: here's an excerpt from an interview with Superman/Batman: Apocalypse director Lauren Montgomery for CBR, where she talks about what it was like having Summer Glau as part of the cast as well as how she ended up with the role.
Interviewer: How did you land on Summer Glau and what did she bring to the role of Supergirl?
Lauren Montgomery: Summer was really interesting. I think she was Bruce [Timm]’s idea. He was the one who put her name in the hat as far as a possible Supergirl voice option. And she wanted to come do it, which was awesome. And when she came in, she was really nervous. I don’t think she’d ever done any voiceover before, so we were a little frightened. It was like, “Oh my gosh, is she going to be able to do it?”
We went through a rehearsal and she was still kind of nervous and still holding back but as soon as we started recording, it was like she was a pro. It was like night and day. There was nervous Summer and there was Summer who was just doing her job. She was just acting. And she did an amazing job. I was sweating it a little at first, but as soon as she started performing for real on the record, she was amazing. She did such a good job. I was really happy with her performance.
