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!

Saturday, June 20, 2009
The Hotel Cafe
1623 N. Cahuenga Blvd.
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.

Indie Filmmaker Gets Hollywood, Broadway Involved in New Film

my heroes

August 25, 2008

Got a lot done with letters — some more out to potential subjects — big fish, too – Hrabowski, Ken Burns, Frederick Wiseman, Ross McElwee, finally tracked down and a bunch of request s to Greater Talent in NYC ,,, many big fish there. I’m especialyl excited about Wiseman and McElwee, my heroes from film school.

Watched De Sica’s Bicycle Thief again today. Such a depressing yet powerful work. Always makes me feel such pity for those people struggling as they did, trying for basic survival. Makes me all the more thankful for what I have today. Such inspirational storytelling, too. Makes you want to pick up a camera and go for it!
