Britney Spears' conservatorship, explained

"Justin timberlake publicly apologized to britney spears even though their relationship ended like twenty years ago. The apology has a lot less to do their bygone romance and much more to do the reckoning over how this country treats its famous young women and britney spears has gone from something of a villain in this story to something much more closely resembling a hero. The freebritney movement deserves much of the credit for that transformation. It's a fan driven campaign which hopes to liberate brittany from her conservatorship constance. Grady has been covering free brittany for. Vox so a conservative ship is illegal solution for what happens if you're an adult but you can't make decisions for your life in your best interests. So this is something that is used if you have a mental health condition or brain injury You're developing dementia. And you're unable to care for yourself. So accord will assign someone to do that for you. So britney went under conservatorship in two thousand eight and under the terms of her conservatorship. She's not in control of her finances or business or personal life so for about two years now going back actually to the point that the conservatorship was set in place in two thousand eight but most intensely for the past two years and especially now since the release of be new documentary framing. britney spears. Fans have been speculating. That the conservatorship has left britney spears as a prisoner in her life and that she might need to be rescued. Okay well let's go back to two thousand eight and talk about why britney spears was placed under this conservatorship. If you think back to two thousand eight you might remember that. There was just nonstop goth coverage of britney spears that year relief and in two thousand seven especially as well. They're repoprt ati following her around. All the time would like wait outside her limo when she was going to clubs to take up strict photos of her and then the entire internet would discuss her underwear and she was starting to react back to them. In increasingly bizarre ways she started yelling at the paparazzi in a british accent once he attacked hover car with an umbrella. Please please seed saved her own head up. Which was all photographed by paper off. They're very famous pictures of her sort of grinning and holding up a to her scalp. She went in and out of rehab. A few times that to the pictures were all over teams. The press helps them now and is performed at the emmy in two thousand seven in this kind of infamous performance where she was sleepwalking through it the press discussed whether she was fat now lot there was a lot going on for her. It was not a good year. Fears has lost so she fits under psychiatric hold twice. What does that mean. She is put in a mental hospital and not allowed to leave what happened. I think that one angle of what happened to britney that we have to hit here. Is that the media industries incredibly sexist straight and even more so when she was coming up. There's one subject we didn't discuss. What was that. everyone's talking about it. Well you'll breasts. There is that whole narrative about whether britain a real virgin and that some like ruin adults would ask her at press conferences. And my of virgin. I think especially when she was with justin timberlake and they've never really cared about justin timberlake's virginity because who would. It was just about britney in her schoolgirl uniform. And you know each. She actually a good girl. There was this intense very sexualize focus on her life. That just wasn't there. In quite the same way for her male cohort. No matter how famous they were. It's hard to imagine that that did anything good for her. And then why does the conservative. Come about a month after the second psychiatric hold. Her father says these are not working. Long-term go under a hold. A doctor will say okay. You're fit to live your own life. Now she'll go out and then she'll spiral and it happens again. So he asked the court for emergency temporary conservatorship over brittany the courts. Brandt that order and then it becomes permanent.

A Birthday Lesson by Adi Redzic on How To Be Courageous & Be Your Authentic Self

"A birthday lesson by ATI Zik of AUDIE REDZIC DOT COM? Apparently, age only matters if you're cheese. I am pretty cheesy. So every year at my birthday, do cheesy thing and reflect on the lessons from the year before last year I wrote thirty one lessons for thirty one years is my birthday last Monday but instead of writing another list this year, I ask myself what is one theme that I've thought a lot about inexperienced as essential to a life well lived. Courage. Of come to understand that courage is the greatest expression of love. My Angeles said quote courage is the most important of all virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue. Consistently, he practice any virtue erratically but nothing consistently without courage and quote. We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty that change took courage. Make, no mistake. Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is staring fear in the face and still doing what scares us the because is exactly what leads to the fulfillment of our greatest purpose in creation of a truly full life. I've experienced this firsthand. Scared a lot many nights I found myself afraid and overwhelmed eyes filled with tears fear can seem very real. This past year was especially hard and scary but facing my fears even when it was really hard has made all the difference. Shows Campbell called fears are dragons, and it is only when we get close to them that they disappear. Only when we have a drink with the proverbial demon's our greatest fears, parts of ourselves, our psyche we try to disown, do the fear seize to assist. said that we are all as sick as our secrets. It's not fear that keeps US trat. It's hiding fear. Courage therefore liberates us. It is hard to be courageous because much harder living life without courage. In the end we won't regret the things we did, but we regret not showing up in a big way and taking risks. You know why B's courage is the greatest expression of love. I've asked myself if I ever had children where I want their daddy to be a lion or a weasel. All my Kiddos to know that I had a heart of a lion. To quote, Teddy, Roosevelt's I WANNA be the man in the arena not the man on the sidelines being afraid of living of loving of daring greatly and quote. Only when we are brave to, we realize what we're made of and to quote Campbell again, it's a privilege of a lifetime to be who we are and quo. We to choose how he wants to use up our lives. Oh, you choose a lion or a weasel. At the base of every personal or organizational dysfunction, there is fear. So I choose to imagine a world where we all have a bit more courage to face down those fears. That's how we heal that. We leave a better world for those who come after us. Jim Warren Talks about liking quote messy people people who don't fit in a box stay between the lines but whose integrity is greater than any rule book and whose loyalty is stronger than blood and quote. We can't be that person without courage. I WANNA have the courage to be that person. Back urges in you too. We often encourages for some mythical euros dismissing true is reserved for us because of us has the heart of a lion inside. And here's why is really important to be courageous. When we are courageous, we inspire those around us. We help those we love have courage to live authentically fully deeply to. When we are courageous and living truthfully, we let others know that they too can do the same. When we are courageous, we face our deepest fears we heal. We understand life in an entirely different way we risk deep connection. Thrill, and joy where courageous we help those in need we stand up for what is right we leave this world better than we have found it only when we are courageous too. We get to reach our greatest potential only when we are courageous too. We follow our bliss only when we are courageous, our life align are being integrates into we make our children indeed everyone around us know only how deeply we love. Them. To be courageous hard. But if we aren't, how can we say we have lived tore loved well more really live at all. Sometimes the hardest thing in the right thing or the same in being courageous as always the rightist and the hardest thing. How do we get to be courageous? It's simple really if it scares you do it. Take the leap and the net will appear people give up on wonderful things in life because of familiarity is more important than bliss have courage not to do this. Trust that when we are courageous doors will open where there was only a wall before this is proven true many times and all of our lives. And if fears are a dragon's then Neil gaiman puts it quote fairy tales are more than true not because they tell us that dragons exist. But because they tell us that dragons can be beaten and quote. I hope he will slay your own dragons. The world needs you to do that.

The Last of Us Part 2: The leak situation

"I can jump in. I just to address the big. I guess draft in the room to keep it on message in talk a little bit about the last of us are too because we did talk about it last week when the release date was revealed as the unfortunate spread of leaks online of meter story beats again. We are not going to be addressing any spoilers in specific detailed despite how many people try to tweet those spoilers at us. We're not going to talk about them on the show so you can listen worry free but it is worth mentioning that since last recorded The game has gone gold So it is officially being pressed discs. stuff is getting ready for the I don't really know what they prep there. But that's getting handled right now. The game is in a complete state. Neil Druckman. Put out a video message because normally this would be a time for the team to be together and celebrating but of course everyone is working from home so he put out a message alluding a little bit to the the leaks and specifically mentioned. Were really excited for you to play because no matter what you've seen no matter what you've heard this game meant to be played through from beginning to end like is a complete full thing that has so much context to it that they really want you to play all the way through That said and I'm GONNA pull up the specifics but Sony has essentially found the leakers and despite what we were talking about last week and I obviously want to set the retreat. A Sony confirmed that the individuals who did the hacking however did Were identified. Sony of course isn't mentioning who they are and they are not affiliated with Sony Interactive Entertainment or Naughty Dog So I know we a bit. Yes yeah I know. We talked a bit last week on this show. And a lot of other shows about like the concept of understandably upset employee possibly upset at crunch hours in sort of working conditions alleged. They had to work with wanting retribution. In some way that has been one of the narratives that was funded out this which we discussed last week. That is not the case as far as we have been told by soon. Yeah that said I think we all kind of agree right now. I think Druckman quote about the game really rings true that like this is the thing. We all want to experience all the way through from beginning to end. I don't know how you guys feel but like even if I've been spoiled on bit or piece of this I don't think knowing a little aspect of this game will make me not want to play because I want to understand the full story ramifications. Yeah To speak to that real quick. The Thing I did when I first heard about the spoilers Being out in the wild was I did what I do for you. Know Star Wars movies in marvel stuff. Anything like Vaguely excited for I went on twitter. And I put in like a ton of key words to mute so they wouldn't pop up and I also did the same with I forget the name of it. But there's basically a chrome plug where you can do. All of that and I was like all right here. We go six weeks away. I'll do what I can and then I was reading a random tweet from. I believe it was like Otaku about something that was even remotely related to the game and I did what I always do. Which is sort of just like inherently. Scroll down past the first tweet to see how people are responding And there was a J. Peg with all the spoilers in it Or at least some big ones certainly big ones that people think that they know because the reality is is we don't know everything And so I was Kinda like well. There goes that my gut reaction was really pissed off because this is something I was. You know fairly exciting for despite the fact that I think we spent a a year on record on the show being like do we really need this game Because I think many of us finished the first one where like that was perfect. I'm good if you tell a story. Maybe tell a story supper. Rustling your universe own. Same characters All right well. Let's see how it goes followed by Naughty dog being like this is our longest game ever and all of us on this show who also got a lot of backlash for saying uncharted. Four was a bit too long in the tooth. Were also kind of like. Oh so I went from being pretty apprehensive about this being spoiled diet to just being like screw it read all the spoilers jumped inbred everything and housing. I still have no idea what this game is going to be for the twenty something hours. Run playing it I I might potentially no major beats but I can't figure out gameplay from reading paragraph in the same way that I can't experience for by looking at a photo of it you know like there's some some things you have to do also like I I will say this right now that I've been I put up a video like two years ago when the first trailer dropped where I was sort of like. That left a weird bad taste in my mouth. It just seemed like violence without context and a people hated it when that came out. Because how dare I speak ill of a video game? That hasn't been. I haven't played based on the trailer. And then now people are like he was writing. They should never have made the game. I don't I thought I meant I. It's just again. It's like the the first game is borderline perfect. So what what are they gonna try to improve and then flip side of that? I feel like you could if you paraphrase the plot first game and you just put it in words on a forum somewhere it can sound really stupid. If you're not playing it you know but you you can take like the the the best things ever made and if you kind of like dumb them down and describe them in a you know perverse fashion you can make just a brilliant art sound like utter hogwash. So I don't I don't know what to make of it. That's what people do to me all the time with kingdom hearts when I tried to distill it down and tell me that it's crazy doesn't make sense but you know same thing happened with the joker movie where there were like. There were leaked. Steen's from the end of that film like straight up. One of the most pivotal kills in. That movie was leaked. I don't know how that's crazy And also like random plot points for flying around that movie for a long time and I think that's what drummed up a lot of this sort of you know we're sending in the SWAT team to hide in your popcorn bucket to make sure you don't hurt anybody after you see this movie like it. Just got a pretty absurd lengths. But they're being too that I've seen a lot of people And again we won't mention a single thing content wise about any spoilers here but I've seen some people who aren't happy about what they've read and they're using that as a sort of a jumping off point to say that they shouldn't support Ati dog in general because of what they've done with their crunch culture there and I completely stand by that if that's something if you don't want to support a video game developer because the way they mistreat and they mishandled their employees by all means. You have every right to do that. But keep in mind that That's actually going to blow the doors open on a lot of the things you like Specifically even more

In addition to stellar play could have been there meteoric rise in status both prior prior to and during the tournament opponents seeing the newbies names climb in the rankings might have been somewhat psyched out. It's a phenomenon that Duke University researcher researcher. Hey Mont Cocker calls status momentum. If that wasn't getting women do you.

Andy Puddicombe, Co-Founder of Headspace, Is Not Your Typical Entrepreneur

"We had several episodes is it feature co-founders and if there's one thing that's clear it's that all of them brought different skills to the table at method. Adam lowry mix six the ingredients to make the soap Eric Ryan design the now iconic bottles at read it Steve Huffman Coding Alexis of hand did the content and at a way Jen Rubio focused on building buzz for the suitcases steph curry figuring out how to get the mate so you get the point right and it's almost I hard to imagine any of these companies making it without both co founders and that is also probably the case with today story because it's a story of two totally different people with totally different strengths one of them. Andy putty comb trained as a Buddhist monk for more than a decade and the other rich Pearson was a rising star and a top tier advertising agency in London. They met because rich was spiraling. He was burnt out and looking for help and Andy was the person he happened to come across. At the time. Andy was offering one on one meditation sessions out of a back room of a doctor's office. Neither Andy Norwich could have imagined that eventually the two of them would build a meditation APP head space now used by millions of people and a business that generates more than a hundred million dollars annual revenue and the story of how they came together at the the exact right moment each with the exact skill set they needed to co found and build head space well. It's a pretty long journey an an andy the Buddhist monk he would say that it took as long as it was supposed to but it actually starts when Andy was growing up in the UK in the nineteen eighties he was. I introduced to meditation as kid around the time. His parents marriage started to fall apart. Here's my parents split up at ten and and my mom was she was she was looking for a way to cope meditation. Daphne was within her kind of sphere of of interest and in Bristol there was a local group was at TM group transcendental Meditation Group and she decided that she was going to do a six week course and my sister I I found out was going along with an item. WanNa be a home on my own so I asked if I could join them yeah and it led to actually kind of a couple of years of doing in that kind of thing into my early teens this in like the early eighties when meditation was by no means mainstream. I mean even sort of West drives so outside outside of mainstream and did it feel weird or different when you were kids. You feel like this was a little unusual eight did but I don't know if I had had that point of comparison you know as a kid.

"Now, Michael avenue. Is the kind of guy that you're the first time you saw Michael ATI? Did you not go? Okay. That that guy shady, you know, exactly who knew exactly you would not have even bought a car from this, man. But what are the news media do huge credibility? Send him Michael luvin Nadia an respected attorney from Los Angeles is visiting Iowa. He might be running. I believe that actually happened. Oh. He was arrested yesterday on charges of Bank fraud, embezzlement, and extortion now before I bring John Miller in he is the host of the White House brief and our our our White House correspondent for blaze TV. Here's the CNN. Spin Trump created the environment in which someone like ATI could be taken seriously. Avocados fall proves there is only one Donald Trump out there. That's incredible incredible read that is contortion. Oh my gosh. Guys at CNN your responsible for Michael you put him on as a credible guest. Why? Because he confirmed your bias. He was saying the things you needed someone to say. So you didn't care who said it and you brought them on every single day. I mean, it was had to be what three of off every night on unbreakable. Crazy. So we have John Miller on and I have John on just because I can't wait winner. You going to the White House winning you going to be in the pool. Again, win win win win win win. I'm actually just leave out there this morning just kind of gathering and talking to people. It's it's depressing. And that's really all I can say they don't want to admit that they're depressed. So they're kind of playing this game where they're saying. There's other stories out there. Trump's DOJ is trying to take down. Obamacare is the way. Wait, wait. Wait. Wait, wait. There are other stories out there. We can get him another way. No, wait, a minute story is you've been wrong for two years you've been wrong, and you've been lying to everyone for CNN. You're talking about CNN, David. I think they spent over two thousand hours talking about the the whole non story that turned out to be a complete hoax. But yesterday Glen I went on your TV program and said, I think they're still upset because they are. They are liberal activists than for them. Has been completely destroying their narrative. I stand by that. I think there is another element. However. And having talked to some quote, unquote, journalists, I think that it's important to say this. This was their story for two years, and they honestly they showed up to the White House every single day thinking that this was going to be there Woodward and Bernstein moment, we're going to be the name they made for themselves, and they were going to take down this president. And that's how they were going to make their Mark on the world. We are the journalists who took down the Trump presidency. I mean, the fact that that didn't happen. And this is basically over is devastating for them. And you want to hear what you know, the liberal. Journalists are saying you just have to listen to the democrat politicians because they sound exactly the same and they're in denial. There's you know, there's they don't trust William bars report. They as the White House seen the report is William bars judgment on this. Should we accept that? Trump's DOJ Eric swallow that they're saying there's there's still evidence of collusion because that's sort of the line. They're towing. But but but when they can't get that, then they're. Going back to well. There's other things we can talk about how do we cover this up? Unbelievable. Hang on. I'm looking for the. The cut she'd here it is. Tom Perez listener Tom Perez now, he's with the Democratic Party. Listen to what he said yesterday. We know in addition to the fact that the Russians tried to metal they did meddle in our investigation. We we know that his campaign manager's deputy campaign manager, his his lawyer popadopoulos stone all of these people were having contact. And so the the question for me that remains is was he compromised. Why did he say that he believes Putin over the intelligence community? Why did he talk about leaving NATO things that put our national security at jeopardy? Why doesn't he release his tax returns? I love this tax returns. Tax returns with Russian puppet. Yeah. And how about his hair what's the deal with his hair? I mean, it's crazy what they're doing. Listen to what he said, we had all these contacts. And we we have to know was he compromised. No, no. That was what the investigation was. Well, why would he be believe Putin over the intelligence agencies because if John Brennan is any reflection of our intelligence agencies? It turns out that he was right? Not to believe them. I mean, you got Joe Scarborough saying, oh, John Brennan. Where were you just like us, and you were given, you know, maybe not so good information and John Brennan. Well, yes, it turns out the information. We were giving weapons wasn't as good as we thought. It was you're you're the former director of the CIA, dude. You cannot get away with raw. So hang on just a second. John follow this. Because you're a very logical guy. You earn? You. So you're a very logical guy. Help me out on this problem. Two things first on the intelligence committee or community. John Brennan said that he was committed treason, and that he had it on good authority that this was going to come and he was going to go to jail because he's a traitor then yesterday he comes out and says I had bad information at the same time. He saying that the media is hammering Donald Trump because he said we should have an investigation on our intelligence community. Will if you're the former director of the C I A, and they're telling you. Yeah. He was definitely and they turn out to be wrong. Wouldn't you be calling for an investigation shouldn't John Brennan? Joining Donald Trump on that. You would think so. But I think at this point there's such partisan hack that they just don't they're not even thinking logically. They're just sputtering out of control. I mean, the whole thing and they should investigate where this thing started. Because the whole thing was based on a dossier that has been discredited from day one and John Brennan actually used that dossier to launch an espionage campaign against all of Trump's people. So I so at whether or not you can trust the guy, I think that's out the window and the entire intelligence community has been an including the guy at the Komi McCabe FBI they've been essentially conspiring to get Trump for lack of a better term. So I think it is fair to say, maybe these guys aren't the honest broker. Do you thought they were maybe these guys should be investigated? All right. Let me ask you one more question, and this I'd like you to ask your friends in the press pool there at the White House when they start saying, I know I know when they start saying. Congress wants to look into all of this congress is calling for their own investigation. And they want access to this because they they claim to today and yesterday they're claiming that they don't have to do the kinds of investigation that the FBI does they have special powers, and they can do special things that the F B cannot do. I would like you to ask them. If you believe that then how come you didn't say, wait a minute during the Cavanaugh hearings? When they demanded there had to be an FBI investigation because only the FBI could look into things. Congress didn't have the power to do investigations like that. Are you saying that there is some hypocrisy? No, I'm not not hypocrisy. Just there's no logic here. There's no honesty. No honesty. Were you? Yes, please do please do and John. My phone line is open to you at any time. I just want to hear I want to hear all of the sad tales from the White House press room as you see them serum in Saab, but you say, I I think you just see the different stages of grief. So as they walk through them, I'll try to walk to their seven. There might be seventeen stages of grief for them. I don't know. But I want to enjoy every single every single stage. Thanks, john. John Miller from the blaze TV, he's the host of White House. Brief really really really sharp guy. You can what you can watch them every day on blaze TV, and you can you can also. See him on my show last night where he was he was kind of giddy. I'm just saying just maybe a little giddy because he is in that cesspool every day in.

Greg the governor's stopped short of something many family members had been asking for which is the removal of Broward school superintendent. Did he say why? Yes. He did ATI a meal, we ran for governor. Rhonda Santa's promised all these families that he'd hold officials accountable for what happened at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school that day nearly a year ago and last month removed the Broward County sheriff Scott Israel from office and the family members.

He doesn't really have the authority to remove him from office. He was appointed by them. And although he has clear policy differences with school board members. He doesn't see clear evidence of malfeasance owning neglect of duty by by those people. So removing the school board members released an option either. Instead desanta says he's asked the state supreme court to convene a grand jury to investigate how Broward in other school districts in the state handle school safety.

He's a father of senior meadow Pollock was killed that day. You know, when your child is martyred in school, you expect to get some answers. You don't really expect a cover up, and you really don't expect to see a superintendents say that the school district did everything right and call any questions about what happened fake news. Despite their strong feelings Pollock and other family. Members said today that they understand the governor's logic support him all the way they're pleased with the idea of a grand jury a mini believed that can result in what they want in the removal of some of these these officials from office, and perhaps possibly indictments asked about this today. Superintendent Runcie said he can't focus the focus on on on. He can't focus on day to day developments like this. Instead, he needs to remain focused on helping his district through the tragedy and keeping students safe in the end. How will this grand jury be different from the investigation conducted by state commission. Right. This commission, you know, work for nearly a year all kinds of testimony from experts and people involved in in responding to the shooting and beforehand. The governor said this grand jury will differ from them in that it has subpoena power as likely to get answers that the Marjory stoneman Douglas school safety commission, couldn't get and even more. They can take action afterwards defines wrongdoing. The governor didn't say what that might be. But many of the family members leave this could lead to the dismissal of some of these officials and perhaps indictments.

Just When You Thought Virginia Politics Could Not Get Worse...

"Just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder. And shadier in the Commonwealth of Virginia it does. And it did. Now, the Lieutenant governor of Virginia is facing sex assault charges. Not not not being brought, but allegations of sexual assault having been perpetrated on a young woman who was was somebody who was sort of connected in with with democratic politics democrat party politics. And there's a lot of question now about the pathway forward here. Fresh off of what we've seen happen over in the Virginia governor's drama the governor itself. We saw the racist insensitive. Awful photograph of somebody in black bass and a Klan robe in this guys. In. This guy's medical school yearbook. Coming on the heels of his call to do partial birth abortions post, birth abortions. Additionally, we find out that the source for a lot of what we saw come out with regarding north picture was ready for this. You're ready and goes a medical school student who was with him in medical school who was aware of the yearbook and decided to release it because they were so offended by the position he staked out with Kathy TRAN. That he would be okay with post birth abortions, essentially, and that's where the punishment. Started out with north them. Then we saw the pictures. We heard him say that was me, then we heard him say, no, I only maybe showed up in black face a little bit once and that was in San Antonio at a dance contest. When I was trying to be Michael Jackson. I can even moonwalk if you wanna see me in his wife made him stop. This guy's not resigning. And I don't think he's going to resign Virginia's one you cannot serve more than one consecutive. In other words, you can be the governor more than once, but you have to sit it out for a series of years. So you can run for one four year term. Then you must sit it out then you may run again for one for your tub. So it's basically a one term thing he gets elected in two thousand seventeen he's not due to come up again until two thousand twenty twenty twenty one and he'll he's damaged as he's as damaged as you can be right now, I don't know that he's going to get made better. If he quits in his mind, I think that's what he's saying. I'm not going to be forgiven. I'm going to be pilloried. If I leave I'm going to be a punchline, I'm going to be the butt of jokes. So I'm going to ride it out and stay in as governor that says mentality. That's what he's saying. Now, the Virginia Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax issued a statement early today denying a sexual assault allegation that appeared on the same conservative website that posted a racist. Photogr? Graf from north medical school yearbook. Lieutenant governor Fairfax has an outstanding and well earned reputation for treating people with respect and dignity. Read the statement from his chief of staff Yati Yati Yati, we come to find out though that a woman approached the Washington Post after Fairfax won election in November twenty seventeen and before he was inaugurated in January twenty eighteen saying she felt like she had an obligation to speak out the woman and Fairfax I met in Boston at the two thousand four democratic national convention. You'll remember that was the very famous convention that Barack Hussein Obama had his coming out speech when he came out to the country and people said, oh, this is going to be a great guy. No run America's throat. Oh, bloomberg. There are only United States of America during conversation. The to realize they had a mutual friend. It was that commonality she require she recalled that put her at ease enough on that afternoon that Fairfax asked her to walk with him to his hotel room to pick up some papers. She thought nothing of joining a big big mistake, according to this woman's testimony, Fairfax and the woman told different stories of what happened in the hotel room. And no one was present the Washington Post could not find anyone who could corroborate. Either version the post did not find significant red flags and inconsistencies in the allegations. Essentially the woman describes a sexual encounter that began with consensual kissing and ended essentially with a forced oral copulation act. I know we've got kids driving around with our parents. So we want to keep that is above board as possible. She said that's what he did to her that was the assault. And that is a problem obviously post reached out to the woman again on Monday. She's now hired a lawyer. You think it's going to be? Gloria. Or is it gonna be have an ATI Gloria, Gloria, Gloria? Later on Monday. Fairfax spoke to reporters at the state capitol in Richmond. And again said the encounter was consensual. Now. I don't know what the order of succession is in the state politics. Like, I don't know if it goes to the speaker of the house, I don't know if the speaker that house is a Republican. But here's the thing. There's no way north is going to give up that seat. And then have that seat go to Fairfax? Who's going to end up giving it up, and maybe ends up in the hands of the of the Republicans. These are political animals writ large, ladies and gentlemen. So here's the question for you to consider this hour number one. Have we learned nothing if we have not learned from crazy maisy, Geraldo and company that you always believe the accuser number two should north resign. Number three. Should Fairfax resign? Number four. Do you care about this story seriously? Is the original underlying offense? The offense of calling for infanticide. Is that the original sin here that has to be dealt

"Definitely. I mean over the dinner table or lunch table. Lesbian lunch. And as we call it. You know, there comes those moments of frustration of denial of anger of all of these things, you know, as people process kind of what is going on what they're seeing and not really understanding that his right in front of them. Yes. Yes. You know? It's it's the girls tried to play a little pictionary try to come out to their parents ending them signals like this look at the look at the star look at all these little signals to rings to female signatures. They just don't want to see the parents don't want to see it. It's right there in front of them, the salt shaker exactly, you know, they have the pepper shaker from from the grandmother who passed away and you'll use it for your wedding. And the girl has the salt shaker from her Bubby who she wants us when she's getting married, it's like a wedding present of from the grandparents and all the signs and signals or they're in the parents chose not. See it or I guess deny it. But finally, the girls just came on. They had those spell it out for them. Like, you know, what we're gay? We're getting married it. With it. That's what the choice that. They were. They were given that basically except us or we have to walk that saying harsh choice, and you know, they were trying to say is your love stronger for us or is your hate stronger for each other and love prevails is the what I wanted to put out. Fantastic message. And then kind of the the final two part question. What has been the most awkward dinnertime conversation? We've had and what has been a recent great dinnertime conversation. You have had. Recent awkward will the the there was one line in the film. We're the one of the mothers is like what is this thing about eighteen carpet that literally happened in real life? Wow. And so somebody asked that I was like how do I even start? So I asked about do know the saying does the carpet, matched drapes. You know, like, hopefully, I was hoping she would get that hint to connect the dots. I just twin passed our head. She didn't get it. I was like oh my God. This is going to be awkward how much into this. Do I get? So I was like, you know, what this has to go into script did. Put it in the art imitates life imitates life and another part was which was probably hard to hear. It was when they said, you know, what we're we're getting married. The auntie one of the aunties is just like what what do you mean? You have a perfectly. Good cousin.

"He sure is. Tell the listers kind of in your own words, what your thought process was win this film. And why you feel like now is the time for this film to be made got it. I I'm going to give credit to everyone who deserves the credit. So I wrote this film with Michael Giampa? That's the, you know, the struck to start a film, you need the foundation, right? The house and the foundation is the script, and I was supposed to be directed by Maya arrow, the wonderful talented super talented, my arrow, she got paid work. So what I know? Indie. Filmmakers can get paid right? So obviously that's priority for all of us. But we had sat down broke down the script together put together to shot list and everything and I wasn't confident enough to direct it by myself. So on the day, I really needed someone to have eyes on the camera because I was in front of the camera. So I had the love the Haley gray coming help code record for me friend house took. Yes. So again with the political commentary, you know, that you are portraying in this film, go into a little bit about that. And where that message came from. Absolutely. Well, the main message is love and acceptance. That's what I want to send out, and I guess the the image that everybody has basically of of the Jewish and Muslim communities is that they are against each other. They hate each other. They fight with each other. That's the main image that everybody has. But really, we don't really a lot of I say us, I'm not Muslim or Jewish. But like a Middle Eastern. People don't hate each other. It's the what is portrayed in the media and. You know, if there are some families, I hate each other. It's it's changing the world is changing. Everybody's open. The the film the way I approached it was, you know. The adults basic story is it's a Jewish female and a Muslim female that want to get married much. Right. So they have a little luncheon to tell their their parents. And that's like a big coming out for them to their parents and previously the had been room mates. And they were yes. Quote, unquote remains and the parents didn't know what the religion was they had fake, names and everything. And so when they came out, and, you know, basically told the parents, I don't know this is really what her name is Colella, she's Muslim, and, you know, her name was Naveh, she's Jewish and the families just burst out starting to yell at each other and not profanity's or anything but just disagreeing with each other not liking each other bringing their history into this. And what happens is that? While they're having this big fat Greek wedding, Middle Eastern style argument. They see two kids one from each side one of the Muslim kids and one of the Jewish kids. They're just sitting there in peace playing with each other. You know, children have no judgment. They don't judge with. They don't. They don't care what your color of your skin is. They don't care. What religion is. They don't care. What your ages is don't care where you're from. They're just two children to humans sitting there and playing with each other. And when the adults see this, it makes them realize that you know, what we're all humans, and we all just connect each other and love each other and accept each other. As we are, you know, you love what you love. I love what I love. Why don't we try to have that love with each other or kind of thing? And so they kind calmed down. And they realize what the in the story what they're. I want to say mistake sort of was and they come together and try to be as accepting as they can in their own way..

"And I kept on asking it was like who is that? That's like walking in the background of that frame. It's ruining these shots. And then we went outside, and there was no one there, and we had a guy posted outside, and he goes, no. There was no one out here. I was here the whole time. That's like, okay. And Rebecca told us stories about how she thought the house was haunted on the thing. So did she tell you that before we started filming or Scott, we'll after we'd picked the location other all the way through filming. Oh, and then for security reasons, some people needed to stay in the house overnight. Those two people were us and then. I didn't want to stay there alone. And then we had the house had a cat in it. That would just hiss at things that weren't there. And it was kind of freaking us out. And it would just sit there and like I'm like, what are you hitting at remember ever asked? Then at some point the cat's head is gonna turn around like a an owl. And then tell you something, and then it is going to make it worse. So does better just to ignore it completely. It was probably a friendly ghost though. We didn't have any lying. Well, that is good. It says I mean that definitely that adds to the mystery of the film itself and on that level, I guess ghosts or stuck in the past and not wanting to move onto the next world. Completely theme. Attic the story, and everyone serendipity of this film on so many level. Excellent. And then where can people are people going to be able to see the film soon or just kind of starting the festival run? This is actually our first film festival. Local premier van. Our next film festival is going to be in cinema, California at on the snow of film festival and other than that. We've submitted to a bunch of places and we're waiting to hear back. It's very early for us in the thing. But like, yeah, it will probably end up online at some point. But like it'll be a while from now we'll probably do film festivals for over a year. And then social media can people follow the film's journeys that way. If it isn't a if it is showing a film festival near them working. They get that information. I think our Twitter is normally the most up to date, we have a Twitter and Facebook. So the Twitter is at guilt truths movie. So it's yeah. At Guilford's movie. And then we also have a Facebook. I believe the Facebook is the same. Guilt troops, moving consistency. And Brandon you seen are the production website is broken mere films dot com. And if you go broken mirror films slash Gilford's dwelling. There's also a website there that points, Utah, those sort of things and testing and then individuals social media handles so people can follow your adventures through filmmaking. If you want to share those. So my Twitter, I'm a writer. So like I live in the Twitter verse. My Twitter is at mar a are underscore, Jay. A y mar underscore J may. My Twitter handle is just my name.

"And also, I really wanted to make the violence not celebrated in crates visceral in somewhat you were like, oh like 'cause I think should be you know, we have enough films where it's like there is finally granted. I I enjoy watching those as well for like creative kills. I mean from a filming perspective I love, but. I think it's maybe more about time that let's approach it with that reality, and we could take John raw and kind of not a new direction. I mean, I'm not gonna join convinced minus slashes a new idea. But do something a little bit. You know, different, I suppose. Okay. I'm sure I'm not the first ever do this. But I mean, yeah. Because there are definitely there is a moment in particular, kind of in the third act of this short film that is very visceral and very violent, and you you hung in there know, and. Yeah. And we kinda hear it. And then we see it. And then we were just like, oh, no. This is happening. This is happening right now. Right. And we, yeah, it's another one that was like you have you want that one moment to be affective? And it's like, you know, Spielberg's says with jaws with the shark and all that stuff, right? And for this. It was we we show out. Can you kind of see the the after effects of some of the his nights out and then? We really wanted a big events where it's like this is actually quite brutal, and this is vicious and super violence. And it's we want you to focus on it. We don't wanna cut away. So you're like so again, it's not celebrating its like, right? This is this is the violence. It's powerful. And it's yeah. It's not maybe something we should be Subaru desensitized to because it's it's supposed to be. It's a terrible thing. And yeah, I mean, there can't be that disconnect. If it is happening every twenty minutes or in a short film happening every two minutes or three minutes just kind of want and destructions. Yeah. As opposed to the shadows and violence happening. But then when we see the thing we see in the third act. It hits you cool. So let's let's get so. Yeah, it's good to know. I'm happy. It's effective. But. It goes to that classic thing. You know, even showing the after effects of a terrible scene where someone's discover someone you're like what did happen. And you're like then you start to kind of make that. I mean, that's the most terrifying. Right. So nice. And then one of my my last questions is going back to kind of ritual aspect of laying things out and his body changing. And it has I'm sure mental state changing. Yep. As a filmmaker when you approach these projects, what is your ritual? What would be laid out? How do you change into? Version. That's a cool question. Watch as much as I can. Okay. Studied the master. I guess keep in mind, your vision from just like what you really want the story to make sure because he can go a lot of ways because people like, oh, what if we do this? How about this? It'd be easier. If we shot it this way just making sure you stick to your like original vision. Because that's that's the way you'll surprise yourself. Most. I think. So. Yeah. Studying the greats. Tightening up that scripts. And. Delegate. I think that's what some odd. Probably be in the next one. I did way too much on this first one then I took a lot of years off my life. But just finding a lot of talented people so just getting those resources together. And just also getting making sure you keep the excitement's because he had to keep everybody excited about the project. Most people were going in for free long, rainy nights. So you gotta make sure it's like you got to keep up that positivity. Fantastic. Excellent. And then where can they find you want media where can they find possibly the film or if it is not streaming yet kind of can they follow at least the account. So that if it does become widely available. Yeah. I can see it for sure it's still passer protects where we're doing festivals. Still keep that secrecy, but of Instagram Brian tala gist is my name. That's where I do. Most of all my posing for films in whatever. And then on Facebook. It's compulsion horror. Okay. Fantastic. Yeah..

"There was some really rainy nights. Of course. It adds so much on screen, but makes miserable nights for sure. But. That was definitely the challenges and. Never really rented any issues running around with cameras downtown, thankfully, so we lucked out quite a bit. I was like that it that. It's good connected. Definitely get weird for sure with some of the always the action that that is in your film, it certain people see this from a distance not knowing what is happening the first year. Could get real awkward totally. Yeah. And there was some things that I didn't realize 'til we were there. I was like, oh, yeah. This spell, it doesn't look it. But the optics of this probably not great for somebody walking down the street. Totally. You know? Luckily, it was more neighborhoods where people don't really care and you can run with the camera. So I mean that definitely. That is good. Now, what I have always been interested in when when I talked to horror film, directors and actors and producers after doing a project like this that is very intense and very visceral, especially with the way that you just to film. This is just tight shots intimate settings the house vote claustrophobic. So once you are wrapped, and you finish the film. How do you decompress? How do you kind of take that and put out of your head for a little bit and get to a different place? It's interesting. I guess because when you're Sherlock people say when you're in it. You're just trying to carry out that vision, and I guess for me personally, I really liked the dark stories I like dark depressing horror and realistic settings. And that's kind of my gym weird. They went on my mom. I guess mom. Is your view the best? She's the greatest. It was it was more. So just I would say from just exhaustion of filmmaking itself as opposed to the story because I live with the story for such a long time. It didn't really affect me that way, it was story that I want to get out for sure, but that darkness again is something that I kinda thrive in oddly enough. I guess so for me, I was more just exhaustion of filmmaking him and the editing and like the panic of. Oh, did I today make some that's worthwhile? But and yeah, you utilized a technique similar to the original Halloween rare. He was the shape Yano. He did not really kind of become we know into a little bit later, you know, who's just kind of this shape. This terrifying thing. Yeah. So when you were in that dark place in your head, you know, working on on this film. Did you ever think about naming him or kind of humanizing him that way because in the credits? It does not really give us anything and. Yeah. I thought it was more terrifying. The less you knew about this person. It was someone that you could see that you can empathize. Hopefully in a sense with them or you can see that. It was it was trying to get across again that just this could be walking passes person during the day would not notice and then at night, these terrible terrifying. Acts. So I think just keeping it that anonymity to it is like, oh, my God that could be anybody that could just happen anywhere. And I think that kind invokes terror in is the terrifying part of that and of the basic slasher story Schlaug someone can be it's like this is the guy who's going with their killing people as a serial killer, essentially, it kind of developed into this like, oh, what's the next kill going to be like super exciting? But let's take that. And be more like base in reality. That's terrifying. And that is something that I mean when I have talked to people who are big horror fans. After the movie, you know, they talk about, you know. Oh, this kill was great. Or I like the way that this kill happen. Everything almost in this in this. I'd distance from it, which I get it is fiction. It is a movie. Yup. But yeah. Yours just felt so much more grounded, which I think again added to that aspect of uncomfortable to be like UK. I know that I'm watching a movie. Yeah. But yeah, it really drew you into it could be anybody. Right..

"So that was a decision there. And it was very easy to do that. Which was great. Yeah. Very cool. So yeah, the film is the Whistler and can people find it online yet. What is kind of the release schedule for this? Or if you have one yet, we don't we're still pondering whether to just share it online or look at VOD platform, and we're kind of still finishing our festival circuit run. So perhaps March or April, you can certainly follow all our news and everything on the Whistler dot movie. And I think on social media were on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook all of those are at Whistler movie. So yeah, we try to share often update people often.

So you know, we're working on that right now. So we'll see what happens that is fantastic. And then if people wanted to follow you. Social media to see which projects you are working on social media handle. So on Facebook and Instagram. I'm at Jennifer, Nicole, Stang and Twitter is at leg any. So it's L A underscore. Why Ian, I it's a little nickname. Jennifer, Nicole, staying didn't quite fit fair enough. Yeah. Excellent. Well, thank you so much. I've been sitting with Jennifer, Nicole Stang, the director of the Whistler. Thanks so much. Brian Sapan Zik from the film compulsion. Yeah. Welcome to the show. They still haven't me. So you're you're compulsion was in the after dark screening where it deserved to be because it was terrifying. Good. That's good. So I mean, it has to do with a what we are. Maybe led to believe a serial killer would even though we do not really see a lot of victims. When we see some of the imagery. It leads us to believe that he is a serial killer. Yeah. I guess spoiler alert is he a serial killer or is he just misunderstood. I guess a little bit of both. He's serial killer. So it was take it from the perspective of the classic slasher guy and a ski mask, but you know, trying to do with a little reality. So it's maze-like silence of the lambs take on. It's not a schlocky. You know, slasher is more like, oh, this is real life. If this is happening. It's kind of terrifying. Try to try to get that anyways. Gotcha. Yeah. One of the rooms that we see in in this killers house is this creepy red room that is in a basement and just kind of tucked away, and he has his tools of his trade as it were laid out on on the table in this kind of you know, what anybody who has kind of read about serial killers. They have this kind of ritual, or at least a lot of them ROY do whether it is certain tools trade certain ways. So when you reproaching this film, what was in your head as far as that ritual. That your killer would have. Yeah, I just wanted to. I wanted to really cool seeing I wanted to take the viewer from this meek person who's just everyday person walking and then take him into the house and then to see the transformation of what goes into this. And what happens when they puts on the gloves. He puts on the mask. You know, his his posture changes it empowers him, whereas he might have been meeting the day. This is like really taking all that animalistic energy or whatever Pence up, and it's it really brings it out. So that was kind of like. Another thing, you know, just from this perspective of this character is you know, how he shuts it off because part of them knows it's wrong as everyone does. Right. Right. But in some that is a need or this urge that you have to fulfil like, how do you how do you separate that? And how do you zest? Now, this was filmed almost I mean for what it seemed almost entirely just dark dreary nighttime. Talk about the challenges that that presents. Yes. Shooting in Vancouver. In November is known Seattle. The same thing. It's. Not recommended exterior. It was tough..

"So is this actually based on anything or is that a book that you gets kind of created or modified unlike pied piper, obviously being. An inspiration for sure. So the pied piper was definitely the inspiration. And then I wrote the poem. And then we had our production designer actually worked with I was looking at different artists to create the the book, but nothing felt old enough. You know, it felt more like a concept piece or it felt to modern. And we were actually coming up quite close to the shoot. I thought well we need to do something. I don't have anything. So the production designer did it herself and she did a really beautiful job. And it was the right field that we were going for kind of an innocent kind of. I'd say more eighteen hundreds kind of. Feel to it kind of an innocent children's book for sure, and we one to have that soft kind of feel to it. So I think she did a very good job in in doing that for us. Very nice. And then the last thing that I definitely want to give you kudos on the cinematography and the drone footage and everything was gorgeous. Thank you. Well, I think the cinematography from day one even when I was writing the script. I thought this has to look good, and that was sort of troublesome from my producer because she was trying to keep everything on a low budget. And even though it was self funded. You know, I thought note we need good lenses. We need to do this. We need a drone we need these things. And so she was great and saving and other departments, which was wonderful. But that was my one of my main goals because I've done a lot of indie pieces before and it was kind of like a zero budget, and you know. I used to have a red epic package, and I would go out and shoot different things, but never had proper lighting like it was kind of all over the shop. And I thought no I wanna do this properly, and I wanted to give it the right field that I think the story kind of has. So I think day one I wanted that drone when I wrote the script with the shot above the water. I already imagined a drone, you know, the research things, and that I kind of already envisioned writing the script, and then when I met name we sat down and talked about the vision, and we were on the same page day one. It was fantastic. So we were talking about all the different shots. We basically agreed and saw the same thing. So it was very easy to just execute it on the day. You know, it was a very sort of seamless and fluid process. And yeah, a lot of the discussion was very like. Oh, you see that too? Great. Okay. Let's let's make this. So it was. It's bigly. Yeah. Because that doesn't typically happen, and we both agreed on like the color palette. And what we want to do with the color grade and post so it was very easy. It was very easy to work together whose idea on the side of things the is. So that's also in the script and I wanted to first of all do via affects because with contacts. We had all those children in the forest, and I don't know for me. I can't even put context in my. So I thought that's going to be very tricky. It's also we did speak with the makeup are makeup artists. Chantal Radcliffe who was excellent and she did all the special effects for the Whistler to is. Excellent. And Wigan was super creepy and made me feel uncomfortable. Yes. Congratulations to Chantal. Yes. She was excellent also lovely to work with. And she told us that. Well, maybe we'll do it in in post because it'll be more. Expensive. You know, having all those kids have contact. So we thought okay, just the Whistler gets context. And that's it only Nelson got those. So yeah. So we thought well and also I wanted when you know. Lindsay turns around and the is kind of slowly become, you know, kind of she slowly becomes entrenched. I wanted that you can't do that with context. Right. So we thought we might as well do it in via fax..

"Everybody can relate to so taking from like your clinical background to then you're still making what are the ways that you would say it has influenced you the most a little bit of understanding about human motivations and seeing fear anxiety disorders or motivations and day-to-day behavior. How impactful that is and that the art is some of my colleagues kind of criticize me actually had somebody give me a hard time. But it just yesterday, actually and. Well, the the art that we make the great filmmakers director over here. Noah who's making doesn't create if you're releases the fear. So it's the catharsis moving toward understanding. And so the art isn't making anti or not. Everything's roses. And everything is fine. Without this art about it. In fact, the art is going to increase the understanding or maybe even be catharsis or release for it. Interesting. Yeah. Because it just those those ties, you know, that in all aspects whether it is that anxiety that some people do on a daily level. Yeah. And there was to really neat films in the after hours block that kind of in therapy. Sometimes you see people doing the the sense memory things to come selves down during panic attacks. And they too great shorts that. That that reference that which really interesting kind of connecting kind of clinical world and horror film world. Yeah. One of those. I think it was just called sense memory. Yes. Yes. And as somebody who did not know that style of coping mechanism that was fascinating to watch. No. It's a very common. Cognitive behavioral self regulation technique for Frank Zaidi cognitive behavioral self regulation technique that just like off the dome you oh, my daily Steph that work. Yeah. No way to comparable down when when you feel that the you're reading fast, you're having anxiety episode, the fears can overtaken you're kind of getting grounded doing something physically that calms the body like slow deep breathing you're being anchored in grounded things assigned from what's driving, the panic. So it's a it's a really well known techniques. I was impressed to see films that dealt with that. Now when was the last time you were in a theater or a screening? And you saw version of fear or a manifestation of fear on screen that maybe was unique to you. While hereditary we watched recently. And that was almost kind of like a Rosemary's baby family drama f- for the beginning part. And then I don't give it away took it took a hard left. Exactly. When did you feel that release how you're talking about sometimes watch these films, and as opposed to being paralyzed, by the way that is their avenue of release? So when you go through it, and it's I mean, there's a visceral sometimes restore excitement and a lot of horror fans love the blood and guts and gore and the jump scares and take down that journey, and it's the the excitement, and I remember early sixteen taking the dates to the horror movies because you get excited and that was a good thing. So there's that that Bristol level of excitement is fun. But but sometimes too when society is kind of consumed by fear, and or individually, and and you're facing fear. Some movies that explicitly deal with whether phobias deepest fears about. I mean, all the well more move the weeks about missing children's something in the big fear of parents. So you get the deepest fear, and then you kind of exploited a little bit. And then through that hopefully good ones, you get some understanding about it or or coping with it or realization of both some deeper truth about how few shaping something like with the political issues in. Get out, for example, racism, or well, even the very first night of living dead as well. Yeah. And it is something where we at least it seems like we're in this resurgence of the horror genre on a critically gamed level. Yeah. What do you think that can be attributed to? Well, well, it's interesting. We kind of started the bad ass film festival. There was a short and that was only six years ago fairly Shrek distinction between like drawn or films horror films, and mainstream and that seems to be disappearing a little bit. I mean, even even in this great great festival some of the. Original idea was that could have been an after dark when that. Mastic heads exploding great staff. And well like best picture Oscar last year, a monster movie Alterra shape of water. So the distinction between mainstream genre. I think is changing. A lot of elevated horror movies..

"So, you know, we did it the one time. And then we did it. We continue to do those shots. So everyone knew. Okay. Well, this is how we do it. And we just had a fantastic crew. We were so lucky we'd just managed to single crew member. That was they wanted to be there. And it's kind of the hottest thing when you're doing short foam, and you don't have much money. You're you really have to have people that won't be because it's not really for the paycheck because there isn't really. So yeah, we would just super locking in in that sense. And I think that also helped like having those creative elements like the repetition of particular shots because everyone feels involved because they're like, okay. We know what we have to do for this. And we're going to do it this way, and we we can get in and do our job. And so that was the really neat thing about acro- just kind of pulling and doing the thing. Excellent or. Yeah. So that kind of wraps I did want to touch on one last thing again that you said that was I thought that was brilliant is you know, when you're making all these pitches and people are saying that they want original content, just focus on making good content. I just wanted to say one more thing. So the push pull effect that that was in a movie for anyone who wants to do it. There's a video on gun with a guy shows you how to do it in post. So all you do is you pull focus, and you push the camera towards a guy, but oh too old your character. But you don't zoom zoom in post, and that will save you money and trouble, and you can just focus on performance. Look it up on YouTube. You'll find out it's super easy to do ever knew to do. Push Bill affect. Yeah. Do it that way hot tip from NC right there at the zoo bands one because it'll take forever and then working people. Find more information about the film and a possible release schedule on social media. Ally we have Facebook Instagram and Twitter hashtag is a short film. And we're we we'll be doing a few other festivals on the Knicks month, and the the hope is that will release online probably in the next couple of months. We kind of still hip to figure out our release schedule with fit in terms of online. But I kind of go with this is basically for as many people to say the as possible fantastic. Well, thank you so much. So I've been sitting down with NCA van Heerden and Victoria Burkhardt from the film oyi. Thank you so much. Thank you very much. So a snake marked is a intense drama that I was able to watch in program. One of the Vancouver short film festival so one you are the director, Adam you are the star of this so whichever one of you wants to answer kind of where did this inspiration? Come from and talk about the film little bit. Thank you. Well, this all started from me, I've always had a fascination with prison documentaries. Unfortunately, I've had some family that I have been in prison, and we'll just leave it at that. But I I've watched a lot of documentaries. And I I saw documentary with a prisoner that just seem really interesting and then a couple of weeks later, I watched another one, and it was the same prisoner but a different documentary. Really? Yeah. And I thought like I turned the TV on and he was there, and it went that's the guy from two weeks ago that I saw so I did some digging and some research, and I found out where he was and I wrote him a letter and within a week. He emailed me back, and then we had a dialogue for about just over a year. Okay. Yeah. So we talked quite a bit he semi photos and show me some of his artwork. And then it just kind of spawned into me writing. Yeah. Definitely was a big part of of the film is the character that we follow, you know, uses his art as this escape. As this creative kind of methodology in a place where you are not afforded that much. And so definitely for both of you. Where do you see that kind of art as a method of getting through pain or suffering?.

"There were takes where she hit a lot more of them. Okay. Good. I chose that take. Because I thought it was a lot funnier that she's training or to beat her rival who went to the Olympics. And she basically MRs ten in a row in the course of one shot, and you like, ooh, girl, like, you're not gonna you're not gonna make it. But it's also justifies it also justifies your actions afterward. Yeah. The other actions that you take to try to win in another way. It's just one as well. Because usually I'm on size like that is like the hopeful pot of. Oh, yeah. You like. She's got this. She's to Jomon she's going to win. And then you like, oh, this is goal is deluded. Yeah. That's comedy to me. That's what you know. When you're when you're playing for comedy like you're trying to find the funniness of you you have to play against what? Yeah. Against what obvious version of training. Montages you have to go the other way and try to find the fun there, which is lucky for me is. Yeah, I had like two training sessions with Al Bevington consultant. Yeah. Turns out that notion off to prepare. And that is that's another good point to bring up is that when we went crazy. It's announced that we were the top six. And so like, okay, a badminton comedy is being made. We literally were flooded with emails from people who were like, I play badminton. I love badminton. How can I help you get background? I'll play badminton in the background. I love badminton racket. This is this is how we essentially got a coach who came and showed are actors like the right way to serve and things. Just so that it would. Look professional. It would look like oh, yes. She does actually know how to play badminton at an Olympic level and things like that. But like we didn't go looking for a specialist the specialist came to us and was like can I please be involved? I love badminton, and I'm an actor. And this would be amazing. And there's no other badminton movies that I've ever, you know, like just so excited and the fun thing that's happened online as well. Is that we've got a couple of promotional images would take in on settle preparing for the film, and there's an Instagram account. That's like badminton online and they've taken a number of images and them like just celebrating badminton. And it's just so funny for me because I haven't seen the film that didn't realize how ridiculous them putting Winnie Ford as this kind of. Oh, she's bad as hasn't badminton icon. Yeah. But they don't know they posted this week being like, ooh, these gills look ready to pounce. No, she's ready to pounce on something. But dinner. Yeah. That's what I was gonna say. So this is a crazy eights film. Yes. From twenty eighteen yes. So you guys had five days to shoot, right? No three. Oh, three days to shoot. Wow. Five days for eight days in turtle on about one month of pre production from them announcing you one of the top six year. One of the winners to actually going to pitch you. So yeah, it it really lives up to its name crazy eights for raisin. Yeah. And we were I mean, we were just reminiscing about this with some of our crew after our screening. I was pretty ambitious with what I wanted to achieve with the film. And I I mean, we kind of left it all on the screen. So it's quite obvious. How many set changes in costume changes in setups? We had to do because it was very comprehensive the the life that we wanted to show Winnie having not just on the court, but off the court, and the kind of back story and everything and so we were shooting we shot three days, but we shot three days with two cameras running almost entirely the whole time almost shooting with two cameras almost the entire time. And who units as well, not just to cameras? Yeah..

It is always madness for two days with just packed short films, amazing content and amazing conversations that I got to have with the creators of some of the works. So between each interview you're going to hear this sound. All of the interviews will be time coated below with the name and project that they are involved in. So without further ado, thank you again to all of my guests who found time during this busy week in a sit down with me. And I hope you enjoyed the interviews that I conducted during the Vancouver short film festival this past weekend. Writer director, Melanie Jones and actress Rona REEs and even with Z at the end run. Res welcome to the show. Thank you. Thanks for having us problem. So your film was shuttlecock or is shuttlecock about a champion. Bad is badminton ter-, bad mentor. A word badminton player like camps. Can't we'd say badminton player. About her is that she's washed up. Yes. I think when you say the would champion you pinch someone who's physically fit there like a role model? She's a champion, but only in her own mind. Yeah, right. Yeah. Definitely she's a winner to herself and not anyone else there as she in. The film though is trying to redeem herself from this. Fateful incident that that happened in her in her youth against her rival. So this film, first of all hilarious. So congratulations with that. Where did this idea come from for this redemption badminton story? So there was sort of two initial sparks for the story. One was that I found the word shuttlecock just saw it somewhere. And I thought oh a great word that would be a great title for a badminton movie. I mean, like what else could you do with shuttlecock as the title like it has to be about badminton? And to me, it was obvious that it was a comedy. And I always I'm looking to write very, I'm always looking to write very irreverent and kind of unorthodox female characters. And so I had been wanting to write a story with an actor in mind prior to thinking of this this particular story, but when I had this idea about shuttlecock, I thought I went to Ronan. I said, okay, it's called shuttlecock. And it's about an irreverend female badminton player. What do you think? Ho- quickly to do say. Yes. To that. I mean when has an. Acta when any any director that you respect comes to you and says, they wanna make something with you in mind. It's a beautiful moment because we're so used to having to audition, auditioned audition rejection rejection rejections, so the idea of not only not having to addition. But getting to be part of the collaborative process is a gift and getting to do comedy. I love comedy companies very did in my hot. Yeah. I was so in from the moment, she said shuttlecock, really, and you also had in mind the poster image to begin with as well. Yeah. I mean, I knew that I wanted to play with the. With like a sexual kind of undertone to the film. So you know, I said too I said to know this is a character that would like do anything to win including perform sexual favors to win. And she doesn't think there's anything wrong with that. Like, that's just part of. She is that she's championship mindset. Yeah. Like anything to win, you know? And and so I knew that the poster needed to be kind of indicative of that willingness to kind of put yourself out and put your body out there, and we had some foam because richly you had the leg post remind this kind of view from behind with the legs open and the eggs, and then, you know..
