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
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.

Ben Jones Shoot

December 13, 2008

Shot the Ben Jones conversation yesterday at Ben’s home. Went really well. Many of us know Ben as the beloved, if not crazy, Cooter Davenport on The Dukes of Hazzard (1979-1985). But Ben’s life includes so much more. He is a former congressman, representing Georgia for two terms in the late 80s, early 90s. He’s a published author and musician, and an all around down-to-earth, fun-loving, sweet natured guy. His wit and candor made for great video. Editing his footage into the doc will be a lot of fun!

The crew was lead by Director of Photography Phil Rosensteel and camera operator Jack Reybold. Gregg Landry from BlueRock Productions shot documentary footage of the day. 

Once again I send a big THANK YOU to he wonderful Wendy Revel for making this introduction. Ben was truly generous with his time, giving more than any of us ever expected. Ben truly gave of himself and spent quite a bit of time after the shoot hanging out  and having fun!
