What is film? Or more appropriately in our age of image making by everyone, what is “film”? YouTube claims 144,000 hours of video are posted every single day. (A woman who reaches the age of eighty…
Kudos to my BFF’s store making New City’s 50: Chicago’s Screen Gems 2013 list.
Because change is good! Film colliding with television would be fun and smart viewing.
Werner Herzog, John Waters, David Lynch, Brothers Quay, Guy Maddin, Gaspar Noé, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Darren Aronofsky, Pedro Almodóvar, Jim Jarmusch, Wim Wenders, Coen Brothers.
Let’s see what these awesome directors can do if they had 100% control over artistic direction with major network sitcoms and/or dramas, including reality shows.
Would aspects of the shows improve or offer us an alternate view of the character’s lives?
Would John Waters want to work with Honey Boo Boo or would Herzog steer the show into a bleak but still oddly hilarious narrative documentary?
Last night, I went to the closing party for LACMA’s Stanley Kubrick exhibit. The exhibit ends June 30, 2013.
It was nice to see it again, take a bit more time and indulge in Kubrick themed hot dogs (Eyes Wide Shut “Sexy” dog, 2001: A Space Odyssey “Femur” dog x 2).
I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.

Types of Extras You Will Find On Set - Film/TV/Commercial/etc.
Sometimes, these are in combinations, i.e, someone is union but also a kvetcher.
Union Actors - A check is a check! They check the clock for meal penalties, overtime and golden time. Hearing there will be smoke on set, their clothes getting wet, etc., is also dollar signs to their ears.
Non-Union - Get paid very little and sometimes, are treated poorly.
Sunset Blvd. - Vain for no reason. They are ready for their close-up! Ultimately, they’re just a blur in the background and yet, are convinced they deserve an Oscar.
Vultures - They will push you out of the way to get to craft services and will use the tables like their own personal grocery store, filling their bag with candy, chips, anything.
LMTFA - Leave me the f alone. Don’t bother ‘em. Headphones and a book.
