    In 2002 David Lynch launched his own subscription-only website and used it as an outlet to showcase a variety of exclusive works and film experiments produced especially for the site. Now, many of those works are being made available on DVD with the September release of DYNAMIC: 01 - THE BEST OF DAVIDLYNCH.COM, which features over two hours of original content previously only available to the website's subscribers.
    DYNAMIC: 01 - THE BEST OF DAVIDLYNCH.COM includes six short films and three intervalometer (time lapse) experiments, all with optional introductions by the director, plus more than 20 minutes of David Lynch answering questions on his work from fans who were members of the website.

    "The Darkened Room" stars Etsuko Shikata, Jordan Ladd (Inland Empire; Cabin Fever), Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever) in a typically Lynchian piece that begins with a Japanese woman talking about bananas before cutting to a creepy situation involving a crying woman sitting on a sofa in a stark apartment, while "Boat" features Lynch himself taking a bizarre boat journey "into the night" accompanied by the poetic narration of his wife Emily Sofle (Inland Empire).

    "Lamp" documents Lynch working in his home studio sculpting a lamp stand from a plaster-like substance and provides a fascinating insight into the rarely seen creative process and working methods of David Lynch the artist as opposed to David Lynch the filmmaker.

    Revealing the director's funny side, the quirky comedy "Out Yonder - Neighbor Boy" stars Lynch and his son, Austin Jack Lynch, as a pair of hillbilly types with a strange way of talking who encounter a giant "neighbor boy" in search of milk.

    The animated "Industrial Soundscape" and "Bug Crawls" visit familiar Lynchian territories as the director experiments with sound and animation that recalls the brooding atmospherics of "Eraserhead".
