Buddy, I think you're on to something here. I have a new wave noir feature I wrote that's getting released straight to DVD March 13 called The Pleasure Drivers (directed by Andrzej Sekula; Pulp Fiction D.P.!) and I told the producers all along that this is exactly the right format. Combine what's going on in the internet with the current tech state of D.V. production and my friends you are scanning into the glowing screen of the new pulps and I can't wait to see how more genre writers take adantage of this.
