Saving the best til last of our several updates today – we now have our first look at Isabel as Pauline in Electric Slide! Isabel’s involvement in this film was first reported on last October, and she has been filming the movie in Los Angeles in the time since then. The first still from the film has recenty been posted online, to accompany a Variety article about the potential sale of the film at the European Film Market currently being held in Berlin. It’s a long, long article with only a short mention of the film, talking about how the film may get an initial release on Video On Demand in the US. I’ve posted the excerpt relevant to Electric Slide below, and you can read the whole thing at the source linked beneath that. The still itself shows a hurried Pauline in a pretty red and black dress, being dragged along by Jim Sturgess’s character Eddie Dodson. Read back through our News Archive for the film to find out more about the story.

Steaming brings boost to Berlin
Digital distribution and compressed windows may not seem like the sexiest topics, but these two phenomena have bolstered an indie film world undercut by the crash of the DVD market. And whether it’s pre-theatrical VOD, day-and-date multiplatform distribution or ancillary windows far briefer than the customary three-month, compressed window releasing has become common enough — and sometimes profitable enough — to begin influencing how films are financed.
