Hollywood Screening

May 29, 2009

Did I mention that Kimberley Browning is one of planet Earth’s most beautiful people? She is the heart and soul behind Hollywood Shorts, and many months ago made the generous offer to coordinate and present a work-in-progress screening of Old School, New School, a study on the nature of creativity.

That day is nearly here. Mark your calendars!

The Hotel Cafe

Los Angeles, CA 90028
4.30pm – 6.30pm

This work-in-progress screening is intended for a target audience focus group (art students and those interested in developing their creativity). Confirmed guests for the post screening discussion include 6-time Oscar nominee (and OSNS subject) William Fraker and Michael Polcino, director of The Simpsons and Family Guy animated series. The discussion continues the dialogue from the movie about taking risks, finding your own voice, defining success in the arts, and, in general, how to “make it” in the arts.

More panel guests to be announced. The best way to keep in formed is to join the OSNS Facebook page.

Many thanks to The Hotel Cafe and Kimberley Browning for making this screening a reality.

Visions of Light

July 1, 2008

Watched Visions of Light in prep for the interview with Cinematography.tv, but it’s also good research for Old School. Conrad Hall really stood out as an engaging subject. I really got excited about trying to track him down. Imagine my disappointment and feelings of stupidity when, in my search to find him, discovered he was dead.

Melanie Jones at Kodak has been so wonderful in her support and encouragement. She’s connected me to a CCS, a PR firm. My new friend there is Lisa, and she’s been terrific in helping secure on-camera subjects for Old School. Top Hollywood D.P’s. A big name attached certainly couldn’t hurt.
