Sundance ’18: ‘I’m Poppy’

By Peter Belsito

This was one of a series of short films shown at a special venue that seemed to all be pilots for projected TV series.

About 1/2 hour long, not much of a story here, this one is about a real woman, Poppy of course, who looks and speaks like an animated doll.

The story line of I’m Poppy, such as it is, is about her plans to become, after recent fabulous You Tube internet success and popularity, the most famous TV star in the world.

So we join internet sensation Poppy as she enters the real world for the very first time to audition for TV and quickly realizes that fame and fortune come at a price, with secret societies, dangerous fanatics, and a very envious mannequin named Charlotte.

Charlotte looks a lot like Poppy except she has dark hair (soon died white blonde like Poppy’s!

Watch The Trailer For The Incredibly Bizarre YouTube Red Series I'm Poppy

The internet is a weird place, and it doesn't get any less weird once you experience Poppy. For those out of the loop, Poppy is a surrealist performance artist who acts like an Android...basically. Here's an example of one of her more popular videos:

Yes Poppy, fame is funny. Funny enough anyway that YouTube Red is giving this quazi celebrity her own series, which actually doesn't look half bad. Check out the trailer for I'm Poppy below, which also features actors like Samm Levine, Dan Hildebrand, and more. Provided the pilot airing goes well at the Sundance Film Festival tomorrow, the full episode should be up on YouTube Red Thursday according to Variety

Sundance 2018 Ushers In the Age of Independent TV With Indie Episodics Line-Up
At the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, TV is invading the schedule in a whole new way. The Park City film fest has previously dabbled in what’s possible on the small screen, but this year marks the launch of the Indie Episodics section — which will spotlight TV pilots that mostly lack mainstream distribution.

The selections include “America to Me,” a new docu-series by “Hoop Dreams” director Steve James; as well as “The Mortified Guide,” a screen adaptation of the popular stage show “Mortified,” spotlighting the most embarrassing true stories of adolescence. There’s also “This Close,” showcasing star/creators Josh Feldman and Shoshannah Stern (both of whom are deaf), and “Franchesca,” featuring digital star and “The Nightly Show” writer/contributor Franchesca Ramsey.

This marks a major change for Sundance, and a renewed commitment to independent television. While Sundance has featured TV programming since the premiere of “Top of the Lake” in

Game of Thrones Season Three - Episode 4 Review

Oliver Davis reviews the fourth episode of Game of Thrones Season Three...

Exclusive still from the road movie: Pycelle and Tywin do Braavos

And Now His Watch Is Ended.

Directed by Alex Graves.

Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

"And now his watch has ended." It's the name of the episode, and also the elegy spoken over a fallen brother's grave. The Lord Commander, Jeor Mormont (James Cosmo), speaks the words at a makeshift funeral North-of-the-Wall. Another member of the Nightswatch has perished, only this time to the more mundane frostbite rather than slain by White Walkers. Burning the body is necessary these days, unless you fancy being awoken by the corpse at midnight for a game of 'I Want To Eat Your Face'.

Fire and death are two motifs that dominate this installment. The Old Bear, Jeor, would eventually succumb to the second after a mutiny erupted on his Watch.

The Woman Who Would be Queen: 'Game of Thrones' 3.4 Recap and Review

The Woman Who Would be Queen: 'Game of Thrones' 3.4 Recap and Review
Emilia Clarke is still on fire in Season Three of HBO's "Games of Thrones." We're feeling a little prescient this week after noting, last week, how commanding Clarke has been in the sequences set in the Slaver's Bay city of Astapor, where her character, Daenerys Targaryen, is negotiating with the vile and condescending slave breeder Kraznys mo Nakloz (Dan Hildebrand) for an army of The Unsullied, identical-looking eunuch warriors, stretching in helmeted rows to the horizon, rigorously bred and trained until every trait but unflinching obedience has been burned away. Various other storylines are moving forward in good order in this episode (Spoiler Alert): Jamie is dealing somewhat less than manfully with his case of ghost limb syndrome. "I was that hand," he says, confirming our sense that the Kingslayer is facing a monumental existential crisis.Dianna Rigg's Olenna Redwyne, the matriarch of House Tyrell, her head full of

Holy mother of dragons. This season has been steadily building week by week and the final minutes of tonight's episode were a stunning crescendo as the masters of Astapor learned in brutal fashion that "a dragon is not a slave". As we discussed last week, Emilia Clarke is at

New Images of Emilia Clarke and Iain Glen from the Game Of Thrones Moroccan Set

Some new photos have emerged from Game of Thrones' Moroccan set, which is where the scenes featuring the exiled Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) take place.  The series, which films in a number of locations including Northern Ireland, Malta and Croatia, has just added a third filming unit called "Raven" (in addition to "Dragon" and "Wolf").
