Fresh update on "steven spielberg" discussed on Planet Money
"It The last Super hero episode we planned But you know who knows you could never truly kill a superhero. But for now, This is it. This is the fifth in our syriza and we've explored copyright. We've explored the public domain product licensing and soda pop trademarks. But Robert from the very beginning, baked into this serious has always been the idea of exploring the inner workings of the entertainment industry, and it was inevitable that we would end up At the movies. Movies are the reason superheroes changed from a geeky subculture into the dominant form of entertainment. And we were now ready to take micro face the audio powered superhero that planet money rescued from the public domain. Into his final destiny. And when we went to our NPR bosses, and we said, we're gonna want to explore the cinematic potential for micro face, I got to be honest, we assumed that we would get laughed out of the room. Instead, they said, Oh, We have a whole department for this. No, seriously. Here we go. We're recording. Okay. Okay. This is Kristin Hartman. She is our colleague here at NPR. But she's not a reporter. What I actually do all day is that I worked to adapt our content for books for television for film for education. She sells the rights to NPR's awesome radio stories to studios who want to make blockbusters. I can imagine our NPR colleagues who make award winning radio stories filled with characters and emotion and passion. They must be meeting with Kristen all the time to discuss deals. We have never talked with her, not even once. But to be fair economic dramas about fractional reserve banking. They don't draw the Steven Spielberg's and the J. J. Abrams from says No, Not until now, at least, because finally, planet money does have something with Blockbuster potential. We have micro face a superhero when we met with Christian. We didn't really know where to start. Do we need an agent? Do we look first studios ourselves and Kristen was like? No, No, no, no, no. She revealed that NPR had actually already signed some kind of huge company wide movie deal. Can you tell us what that is? Yeah, of course. So in this particular case, we have a first look deal with a company called Endeavor Content. We're gonna have to break down that Hollywood jargon a bit. Let's start with endeavor Contents. Endeavor content is the film and TV financing arm. Have a huge Hollywood company that has helped to make everything from Quentin Tarantino's last movie to the filmed version of the Hamilton musical. Next phrase their first look deal. What this means is that a few years ago Endeavor content paid NPR some flat rate. How much well, roughly dollars were apparently not allowed to disclose that. No, And there's a bunch of other parts of the deal that we also can't disclose that we will also have to bleep because we're not allowed to share it publicly. So endeavor paid that flat rate and gets to say to NPR. We get first look at every single radio story and podcast that you make we add endeavor. Get to say that might make a good movie or TV show We want That one like right of first refusal. We have days on any new story to say, Hey, we wanna option that And if we don't say anything and just go out with your life what This means for us is that endeavor has a limited window to listen to our micro face serious and if they want to You know they want to They can pay more money and then buy the rights to turn micro face into a movie or TV show, which would be the dream Micro face the movie And when we talked to Kristen Endeavors first look window Woz still open on micro face. So if Endeavor hasn't said anything about optioning our micro face podcast series Which.
The Little Things Movie Review
"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.
"steven spielberg" Discussed on Work Matters With Ken Coleman
"This work matters with bestselling author and syndicated talk. Show host. Ken coleman it's wednesday november twenty fifth. I wanna share another story of doing this each day this week. We're going to get through this week. To highlight very well known successful people from different walks of life but to highlight the same things that you deal with they have dealt with. And so today. I let off the program by saying i want to tell you about what you and your story have in common on the greatest storytellers of all time and that storyteller is steven spielberg. Obviously we all know. Indiana jones e. jurassic park saving private ryan schindler's list jaws. The list goes on. And on if i didn't mention your favorite spielberg movie. You get the the drill what you may not know about. Spielberg is that he suffers. And i don't even like these words suffer but it is a challenge now if a family member that struggles with it but he struggles with dyslexia and back when he was in high school. You really know what dyslexia was and how to deal with it and how to come around and see the brilliance of those who are dyslexic but he had poor grades as a result. He got rejected from university of southern california. Not once not twice three times. What's fun about it is. Joe is eventually was awarded an honorary degree and became a trustee later. Yeah he didn't cut it back in the day. There's some rejection folks. How many times have you been told no all right you get. The drill is keep moving. How about failure dropped out of film school that he was eventually readmitted to because he wanted to be a director eventually did finish his degree even though he obviously never needed it about fear and doubt at the age of sixteen he watches lawrence of arabia theaters. Any almost quit his dream of being a filmmaker because he was so intimidated by now looking at a movie through the lens of. I'd like to do that and he was like. I don't know that i could do that. I i must be fantasizing out of my mind. I may have lost my mind. How many of you felt like that before. Haven't you feel like that right now. The dream is clear but then you see other people do. There's no chance i could do this. Steven spielberg felt that way but he kept watching. This is my favorite part of the story. He kept watching. The film. warrants arabian started taking notes so instead of being intimidated by it he started paying attention to okay. If i was going to have a chance to pull this off what what do i think i'd have to be able to to begin to take notes and in breaking the film down and beginning to list out what he would need to do he gets the juice back goes from being fearful doubtful too hopeful and fired up about pride. He attempted to break into comedy with the world war. Two four farce nineteen forty one while the film bombed and he says that he spent the next year feeling sick to his stomach feeling like a total failure. He runs into a young george lucas and tells him how he's feeling. And that's when the story of raiders of the lost ark came to him and that turned into the legendary indiana jones series. One of the most successful men in the history of hollywood one of the greatest storytellers greatest directors to ever get behind. A camera had to deal with rejection failure. Fear doubt and pride. It wasn't an easy path for stephen colbert. Is he genius. Us but did he just show up and declare his genius and everything fell in place for him. No be encouraged. What you're feeling what you're experiencing what you've been through. You're not alone. Here's a great quote to share with you. I love this. He said sometimes it dream. Almost whispers almost whispers. It never shouts. It's very hard to hear. So you have to every day of your life. Be ready to hear what whispers in your ear now. That's his experience. And i don't know if that was my experience. I think sometimes the dream can be really loud and in your face wavenet if you have the courage to see it but i also agree with how he said. It got to pay attention. It's that nudge. I- lovely says here it's whispers in your ear so every day realized got to be ready to hear what the whisper is because what tends to be the loudest in our ears are fear and doubt and pry those nasty enemies. We talk about almost every day on this program. And i think spielberg's absolutely right when those voices are really loud. It's hard to hear but you can do it. There's a way you've got this to it. What's the whisper. So last thought on this because i think what he's saying is so profoundly practical. How do we listen for the whisper. The only way to hear the whisper is to be aware of the noise in our heads and in our hearts of fear and doubt and pride all three connected all three different but they get louder and louder the longer we let them stay in our heads the louder they get and it goes from being a lie to feels looks. Sounds like truth and so when we can identify fear doubt and pride because we are clear. The process i teach stage one. What do i do best work. Do i love to do what results of that of my work. Really make my heart sing. It's that clarity. And that's the truth and when we can identify that we're able to hold the voice of fear. The voice of doubt the voice of pride up to the light of clarity and we go. Oh yeah got the always got me out. Ohio the truth and when we begin to see and feel and act from clarity. We hear the whisper. Clarity quiets the mind and the heart to where we can be present and we can hear the whisper to feel that. Did you see that. I think we wanna do that. That's possible. I'm not sure anybody else is gonna do that if i don't do that. Those are the whispers and you can hear them when your brain and your heart a quieted. From the fact that you are clear and when you're clear you know what you wanna do why you want to do it. You have a general idea to get their. Those whispers are gonna come and that's where the extra concrete clarity comes It's not sports broadcasting kin. It's a different. Kind of radio show in the whispers. Just keep getting more consistent and those whispers become more clear and they become louder because we allow ourselves to be able to see what we cannot see clouded by fear and pride to go.

George Clooney reveals how and why he gifted 14 friends $1 million cash
"Shall we talk about george clooney. I'd love to. I mean it's great stuff. What a joy to wake up on a tuesday morning and just find a profile of george clooney and cheeky magazine. I mean i can't ask for much more in this life First of all this is the man of the year man of the year issue. An annual occurrence for gpo usually accompanied by a party or parties. there's some kind of fun. Dj set online slash than doesn't sound fun. at all. i mean george clooney is just like the de facto celebrity to me. It's just like you've for for me. Just because i love him so much more so than brad pitt. Who is you know. One of our animating figures. Of course their friends part of both their charm. George clooney has always been lovable because of playing doug on er those politics both of which are part of this piece. But i just feel like this was like best case scenario for a celebrity profile. What stood out about it to you. This is slightly awkward as we noted. Your husband wrote this but you know. Just talk about his work. Yeah let me see. I was not involved in this process and just reading it. You know differently than i feel like i know the man who wrote this you sleep. You wanna say through this these interviews were done over. Zoom as the as the peace explains for a number of reasons but for the health and safety of everyone in this time so like they were done in my house on and afterwards i was thinking about the fact that george has such a distinctive voice that i should have just stood outside the door and listened to george clooney talking like through the door. Because i don't think i think act just uses the zoom without headphones for these interviews. I don't think he wants to bring bluetooth into this experience. And screw it up even more. So i i regret not standing outside the door like a creep and listening to george. Clooney talk and i didn't do that so i really. I have no behind the scenes information. I just absolutely charming. And that's why you want from george clooney right you want him to be a like cary grant but for now and i just like a hugely charming informed person that you want to spend time with. I honestly want that more. From george clooney than i want like a movie directed by george clooney at this point or movie starring george clooney. You know there are many movies starring. George clooney that. I really enjoy but i just. I'm happy for him as like capital g capital. See george clooney. And what's nice about. The profile is that he seems to know that too and he's just like let me give you some more george clooney stuff and let me just tell you about how much i love my wife for awhile and let me just tell you how acting works. I thought that stuff was so fascinating. I love it when really talented people just like switch into their genius mode and like i'm gonna tell you this and i'm going to tell you this and he tells a story about e. r. n. Any tells another story and he's just like annotating the scene and it's like talking to someone who knows a ton of stuff. I thought that was fascinating. He shares an anecdote from steven spielberg students. Billboard tells them to stop moving his head so much. And i loved that because doug ross did move his head a lot especially when talking to carol. You assert like trying to like burrow into the moment. And it's like dude. You don't need to your doug fucking rossier water. Attrition your renegade pediatrician. He also so happy that zach got him to talk about the time he gave his fourteen friends. Each one million dollars in cash on honestly the details are so much better than you ever could have hoped for. This story came out. I think like almost two years ago. We talked about it at the time. I think randy gerber shared the information. Right yes and then. I think we talked about it on jam session and zack knew about it. And then zach wanted to ask you about it. So i'm gonna credit usually with that particular. Thank you thank you so much. Thank you so much zach. So george clooney like basically impersonated danny ocean one day. Although i think the other takeaways like owed any ocean it's probably a lot like george clooney and he got a florist ban that he rented for the day and drove to an unnamed location. Downtown los angeles richardson. huge vaults. Like just stacks of cash literally. It's kind of like the way they portrayed the vault in die hard three. you know. there's like all that cash. What i guess the vault i was imagining i skipped ahead. Because there's an ocean's eleven here too but keep telling this story you're doing great. I won't interrupt. He goes down like multiple levels below ground and just gets tons of cash and then puts a a million dollars in two fourteen different to me. Suitcases he says that it's much lighter than you would think. And then he loads it into the van and he drives away then. He gives his friends the money. And yeah the reference. The correlation to ocean eleven is shocking. It's stunning right right. There is like i can see the duffle bags of money notions eleven being carried out of the blasio and it is absolutely that and they also commandeered a swat car that like it's very similarly ban also underground the whole thing is like it's hard to believe it's real george clooney. Actually i made that up. It's not how i did it. And he just was like. This is the antidote. I'm gonna tell. I also surprised because it's like so close to the movie.
Never Surrender, with Garbled Twistory
"Into Slavery Gabriel Prosser grew to be a strapping young man trained as a blacksmith and learned to read he his brothers and his wife hatched a plan to not only a free themselves from bondage, but all enslaved people in Virginia their plan was to gather more men take over the capitol of Richmond and kill all the white people with the exception of methodists Quakers and the French processor. Would then rule the New Kingdom of Virginia. The plan didn't work. My name's Moxi and this is your brain on facts. Why didn't they Rebel this is a question that should have occurred to every American schoolchild when studying the Civil War and slavery. Why didn't they Rebel the truth of the matter is they did more than one third of the population in the south in the eighteenth Century or enslaved people in the 1943 Book American negro slave revolts historian Herbert aptheker estimated. There were over 250 rebellions of enslaved people in the US between 1619 and 1865 some historians put that number over 300. So rebellion was a lot more common than we were led to believe and even if enslaved people weren't taking apart in an armed Uprising many would fight back in small ways painting food work slowdowns feigning injury. Damaging equipment and so forth the new world had slave rebellions basically as long as there were people enslaved. They're the first documented Rebellion taking place on San Domingo on Christmas Day 1522 some rebellions managed to make it into the history books and pop culture like the seizure of the Amistad when a boat full of kidnapped Africans over through their captors and took control of the ship to both win their freedom and be memorialized in a film by Steven Spielberg. The first recorded slave revolt in the United States happened an hour down the road from me in Gloucester Virginia in 1663. White indentured servants included enslaved Africans in their plan to do away with their master and be free another servant betrayed them and was rewarded with his freedom. It would be nearly twenty-five years as far as we know off. Before the first all black slave revolt which again took place in Virginia. The largest slave rebellion outside the United States was the successful Insurrection of black slaves that overthrew French rule and abolished slavery in Saint domingue establishing the agenda nation of Haiti that proved unequivocally that the enslaved could defeat their captors and live free that precedent frightened and slavers on the mainland suck slave owners actively repressed any sign of rebellion laws dictating when where and how slaves could congregate were enacted to prevent Insurrection and quavo light paranoia. It's the same reason the enslaved were forbidden from learning to read or write words spread ideas and your captives May develop repetto Mania wage medical condition and let this make you grateful your doctor actually had to go to school the mental illness that caused black slaves to want to run away. Yeah, that's what these folks told themselves in case you thought the narrative myth of the happy slave was a recent invention. With Plantation populations under tight control Insurrection would tend to come from the cities or parts of the country where there were lots of small farms rather than one big one. We don't have time today to talk about all three hundred rebellions. We'll just hit on some of the ones that are most likely to make you ask why you're high school history textbook included between zero and one slave rebellion. Well at the same time definitely mentioning white John Brown at Harpers Ferry. Records are a bit spotty for our first subject the Stono Rebellion in South Carolina in 1793. History is colored both by the mouth of the teller and the ear of The Listener with their preconceptions, and we only have one firsthand contemporary account. Early on a late-summer Sunday morning 20 enslaved people gathered near the Stono River Why Sunday morning a recently passed law required all woke up men to carry firearms with them to church on Sunday. So the rebels made their move when the men and at least some of the guns would be elsewhere.

The Filmmakers Dilemma Dark Skin Tones
"April of little some interesting or different today for the this week in photo discussion among with my friend. Chris Fenwick If you have anything to do with final cut pro, you know this guy he he's one of those people that knows final cut pro and editing in general from the inside out backwards and forwards and all that and he's We'll get into that but Chris reached out to me a couple of the about a week or so ago and pose a really interesting question us. He said, you know what? How do you? How do you color ballots for darker skin tones? He was having problems with that and this was this was on the heels of the whole Simone biles controversy with Anti Liebowitz and. All that back and forth of they should hired a black photographer to shoot her or should the photographer shot heard? No or Annie's people? Should they have known how to process and color correct for blacks hint so anyway. So we decided to jump on and have this conversation just talk like you know two people that like this stuff and see if there's a solution or maybe there is no. Solution but Chris, which is these elite editor Ed slice editorial and I'll put the links to all of his stuff in the show notes and the the description for this episode on Youtube but follow him over there. But check out this discussion is pretty. It's pretty interesting. We'll be pretty interesting from the standpoint of just what's wet in the in the real world of color correcting for other humans. We go. Here we go starting to. All right. Chris. Renwick. Welcome to this week in photo man how you doing. Mr Johnson I'm doing well. Yes it's good. The I'm doing really good. You know what we were talking before we started recording. and. I got I. got a page just from chatting just. Before recording. Yeah Yeah where you do your hands. Okay. But always you know you're you're a wealth of information. You're humble about it. Obviously, which is why you get invited to speak at conferences and all this other stuff, and you'd probably have more work than you can deal with. But let's I want to segue into that stuff that that I talked about in the teas color balancing for darker skin tones, Black People Brown people, etc. But before we do that, tell us a little bit about Chris Renwick in slice editorial. In the world and how are you helping keep spinning? I don't think I help keep spinning all. Right. Now. That's that's that's frightening I I'm an editor and I tell people this all the time and they say Fascinating. What are you edit? I added a bunch of stuff you'd never want to watch. It's it's not that it's not that exciting. In the corporate communications corporate branding space. There is tons of work to do most people realize that whether it's photography or video or editorial like I do But frankly most of the stuff I work on, you'd Never WanNa Watch. It's not that exciting. It's a matter of fact I think the people that I make it for you know they're struggling to get their employees to had chip you know but but but the bottom line is it's a living and I've always said that to satisfy your own creative you know thing that you have to do. You're better off. I mean it's good that I don't rely on my job to do that and I'll. I'll tell you. That if you. If you try to be, you know to exude your best you know a Steven Spielberg George. Lucas. When you're doing my job, you're going to be a pain. Because you're GonNa have all these great ideas. I'm not saying the not good ideas, but they're not right for the project that you're working. And so You're better off. You're always better off serving the project and. Most of the stuff that I do, it's ahead he's talking and might be a graphic over shoulder that. Explains what he's talking about but I don't need seven different angles in tight close ups intention like no I don't need that and so if you WanNa do that you should totally do that. But doing on something you're producing and not that you're trying to get paid for. And It's it's just kind of a pet peeve of mine. You know you just keep keep your creative thing to to wear. It's a being asked for and I turned stuff out. That's what we do. It's not not really exciting but like I said, raise the Bill Corp video pays the bills you know keeps keeps keeps the Earth Spin and keeps spinning right there. That's absolutely absolutely and I'll tell you three a four days after Governor Newsom shut down the state of California were based. we were in production. and. We were in production because. On I kind of reminded everybody that we work with especially in the office that our core competency. is to. Help people disseminate information. That's what we do. We help people communicate, and even during a pandemic people have to communicate, and so we came up with some workflow ways to do that and I've talked about that on other shows maybe to talk about it here but it's not what we really came to talk about. But but we were I was working on Tuesday. I delivered my first client video before the week was up

Visions For Hollywoods Future with Ruth Carter
"Welcome to our podcast it's where we ask some of the entertainment industry's brightest minds what they do to fix what's broken when production resumes versed up costume designer Ruth Carter she's worked on films like Spike Lee's do the right thing. Steven. Spielberg's Amistad and the upcoming coming to America Sequel and at the Twenty Nine Thousand Nine Academy Awards this happened to her. Black Panther Raw. Nomination. She won for her work on Ryan Koukoulas Black Panther and that made her the first black person to ever win an academy award for costume design. This has been a long time come in. Bike leave. Thank you for my star. I hope this makes you crawl. Carter was also the first black person to be nominated for an academy award for Costume Design Way back in Nineteen ninety-three for Malcolm X. Despite her personal success Carter believes, there's always been something fundamentally wrong in Hollywood I think was built on broken narratives. and think about w griffiths or the nation. It was totally broken narratives and. People bought into it Hook, line and sinker, and that became you know the standard. In Hollywood itself even though stones were were going on people were in red face and black face 'cause there are people behind the scenes. Building those costumes and doing the props and they were people colored doing all kinds of supportive crafts that created the that cinematic events that was not including them. So I. Feel like the the work is to be done still adds shine the light on a lot of these supportive of people not only as directors and producers also as Crespi like myself. Back when Ruth Carter was getting her start in costume design is she didn't have a lot of role models and at a certain point as she progressed in her career Carter realized that she was blazing a trail for others. I wasn't overly concerned about a mentor that looked like me and the beginning because I expected that there wouldn't be any or many I. I look for Kassim designer that I wanted to be like and so I was forging this path of united. Volunteer. At Western costume when it was on melrose and I'd hear the names of costume designers over the loudspeaker being summoned to calls I thought wow that's melena cannon narrow. I've heard of her wow that's an rock I've seen all of her pills and I looked at my role as an artist and I was seeking out other artists as a black woman. I started to realize when work with spy can I started become more of a film student I started in theater There wasn't very much representation in front of the camera and behind the camera and it was you know our quest to create images for in front of the camera that we felt represented our community better and my passion from behind the camera was to say, well, I'm here because Spike Lee said I am the costume designer for his now and now I can take on that leadership as. An artist, but also as a mentor so I always had interns I was an intern I knew the value of internships and it was my hope that there would also even though I was young in the game that there would be another person who was as passionate as I was to reach the top and I I dreamed about like, Wow, what if I were to win the asker like? And tastic would that be And realize after I got on stage a may also before but especially after winning that I was a roll off.

"Welcome to film spotting. Josh, we've done our share of top five over the years five hundred or so, but when it comes to power rankings, we are mere novices. We did this for the first time two years ago. Almost to the day, we power ranked the Chris's Anna the. Moments history of film spot right episode six, Eighty six Oh, surely one of our more significant shows. And this week we're going to power rank the five decades of Steven Spielberg's career. Maybe someday will power rank our power rankings. Come to that. So little preview. Was this tougher than you thought you know? There's two ways to go about this I think initially we both thought just of look at the filmography, and and get on the mic and kind of riff where we think things are, or you sit down and chart things you move them around. You have tears. Which of course is what I think? We both ended up doing so yeah. It was a little bit more of a project than I anticipated, but a rewarding one. Yeah, I put in the work on it. Because I knew it was going to be hard enough deciding which decade put first. and which would slot right behind it? I didn't think it would be so hard with the other decades actually, and then after spending a good deal of time on it I actually ended up flipping two decades around that I thought were set in stone. So I'm excited to get to that, and we'll share listeners power rankings of the Spielberg decades as well we have. Their poll results a bit later I though the beaches are open, so let's talk ause.

There is a creature alive today. WHO has survived millions of years of evolution? Without Change. Without Passion. And without logic. It lives to kill a mindless eating machine. It will attack. And Devour. Anything. It is as if God. Created the devil. Gaping. Jaws. Sometimes. Probably often we have a convenient hook for one of these setups that doesn't really reflect the whole substance of our conversation about a movie, but a convenient hook is a convenient hook, which is all to say for those of you who aren't particularly interested in hearing a discussion of jaws framed around our current administration. Just give us a little wiggle room. Here I'm pretty confident, were both more excited to talk about Steven Spielberg's camera tricks then his politics, but it's a little. Little Eerie how prescient his game changing nineteen seventy-five blockbuster is forty five years later. The movie The promise will never go in the water again also presents an all too dangerously familiar type of huckster politician, a crisis who fails to heed the warnings of scientists dramatically downplays and dismisses the potential loss of life can't wait to pat himself, and his cronies on the back loves to PREEN FOR A TV camera and who demands those beaches be open because business demands. They be open. Sorry even the scary shark movie is actually about Corona. Virus and I'm far from the only one who noticed my twitter timeline has jumped the snark over the past couple of months including this from frank rich just a few nights ago. Commenting on a New York Times breaking news tweet read Vice President Mike Pence encourage governors to repeat a misleading claim about corona virus outbreaks rich wrote. Pence makes the jaws mayor look like Churchill. Mayor. Von is played with a pen. See an affable smugness by Murray Hamilton and one line I'd always kind of overlooked. This struck me on. This rewatch is when he's spurning. The please of Roy Scheider is chief Martin Brody and Richard Dreyfuss is Matt. Hooper to keep the beaches closed on July Fourth America's Day, to celebrate its independence and preeminence. Any explains I. Don't think either one of you are familiar with our problems.
Why Actress Lisa Vidal Believes "I'm here because this was supposed to happen."
"You. Grew up acting. When did you know that this was for you? I knew from a very early age that I loved to perform. I was always singing because I'm a singer. I always had music on the radio. That was my first love. Actually I also used to watch lot of television because you know. We lived in the Bronx and Spanish Harlem, so my mother was not like letting us out some. certain times the neighborhood. We get tricky, so she was like no in my out. Or whatever and so I, watch them on television. That was my friend. I watched movies girl, so I used to I was so pulled in by movies, and then I have my my aunt, my the-they who? Is such a hero in my life. She was always taking us to movies. Song Forget. UH, she said, drop us off at the movie theater me and my presence, and she'll be like I'll be back five PM to pick you up that she felt bad for us. Abuse stuck in us from weren't allowed to hang outside. So, we would be at the movie theater. Day those days you go from one theater to one movie to another you know at then I saw funny girl, my my my d. c., funny girl and I just fell in love with Barbara streisand and how she was singing and acting. And that was it. That was it I knew I wanted to do. What do you mark as your big break? You know what my big break was a film that I did all I like him. that was my big because I like it like that and I think there was a big break for all of us in that gnome, it was a small film that became like a cult film that became huge, and so I pretty much soon after that I got signed a deal to Aden, C., which led to my semen Silbert show that was my i. like big, lead role on a network primetime television show that Steven Spielberg for. Do you Steven Spielberg Rating? You Fan Fan Mail. Did that's surreal, please? I? Thought they sent it to the wrong guy This must be a somebody else. I couldn't believe it. I mean I still have it up on. My Wall is one of my proudest moments, and I always. Love Steven Spielberg Right, but I thought it was interesting to that when you got that spinoff. And you were really going to be carrying a pilot that there was a little piece of you that worried. Can I carry this pilot? Right like that is a different level of pressure to be like this show will succeed or fail, and you're not like the fourth or fifth person down in the credits it is you. Well Yeah I mean they brought Blair underwood in and our characters just exploded on the show. You know we became a hot. Partnership shelves some Cups Yeah you know I think. I. Think when you go from a guest star. else doing these kinds of roles or even a recurring character writing comes in now. Maybe you do three episodes. Maybe you do five episodes whatever? When you come to the place of a lead. And they're they're absolutely is a whole new level of responsibility, and absolutely without a doubt there is that you know that little bit of light on my Gosh when I do this, but. That's when you. Really embrace you towns, and and recognize the you are and say. Yes I can do this. Yes, this belongs to me on here. Because this was supposed to happen and it's it's a battle right because we had that little devil on one side, a little angel on the other who they talk into each year, and so we consist. That's why that's why training is so important. That's why understanding the process of creating a character be prepared preparation. Discipline Professionalism. All of that comes into play. So that, you're standing on solid ground and you have foundation when you come into that position, you know what you're doing. I was looking through your IMDB. Have you ever played a non Latina character? I have there been a few of those roles were actually white. Jane. That was written white. Gabrielle and I have the same representation, and they sent me the script and I got a meeting with Martin Brock. Akil and she was like I know Lisa's work. And we sat down for three hours and talked about Cara and. She's like I want you to be my car. It also shows you the value of having a person of color. Be The other person on the other side of that table. Right like the heels would get that absolute asks. They are so fro. You know black and Brown. Absolute.

Dante Basco Discussed Landing the Role of Rufio
"You work asked. How did how did that come about like you had started out as a dancer one of your first credits is in moon-walker. Yeah yeah me. And my little brother Dion. We're in Walker. I was actually his understudy in moon-walker and we did the bad video but we did the kid. Bad video friends would allow those kids today. I mean mercer tantrums in the video. She's like the executive producer showrunner of of fails to share. We've known each other since we were like twelve. The way dancing works. You have the casting you have to have a cast like exact behind them because people get hurt all the time when you dance so we did that. We Young. We're gases when he came to L. A. But when I did hook the pretty remarkable thing about hook is so my little brother. Dion hadn't auditioned for another character in the movie. And I remember calling my managers when he got the addition. Because we're like you gotta give me an audition for this movie because you know the one thing we knew is it's Robin Williams playing grownup Peter Pan. And you're like that had captured the imagination of the world like. Oh my God like Robin Williams is Peter Pan. That's who he is. And so we were all excited about the movie and Spielberg and and whatnot. And so I ended up getting audition for other character. Rubio we know in these characters are and then my other brother. Dr Ian got an audition for Rubio too so we both went in together. This the thing about being brothers L. A. And Act against all audition and continue against each other and to this day and it's like was the TV show like last season where they're like. Oh it's between you and your brother during both on the board like whatever like was going to get it so good like but we've all trained together and go of the process understand that you're not really in competition with each other you know but we've been through a lot as brothers and different these days almost be really close. Yeah I mean it's hard to be Asian actor in. It's hard to be an actress. La I always say it's hard to be an actor in La. Probably want hard jobs in the world as far as to work and then on top of that it's hard to be an ethnic actually and within the ethnic spectrum it's hard to be Asian ethnic spectrum and even within the Asian spectrum to be Filipino. That particular Asian is super strange. The people because they're like are you. What kind of Asian Asians that? We wrote this role for you like a brown skin kind of are you. So why are you so ten and then even within that little like Filipino? It's like it's you know I'm one of four brothers that are like very close in age like you're the boss brothers like at our performance that our performance that we're all here in the audition so it. I've lived a very unique experience except where I've brothers that lived with me. Oh we are definitely going to ask you about one of the few experiences. You had playing a specific Filipino. American character in the great debut debut But I I want to ask you lower living in this hook. Moment your audition you said before that in a way your upbringing in paramount helped you in. Yeah House. The unique thing about that particular project is I went in on me and my brother both went in. We put the auditions on tape with the with the Catcher in Jefferson. There's a picture of that day too. We both dressed up like how he thought loss was addressed up. I remember like bracelets on this. Weird like floral shirt and so We had the addition and then I got a call back like the eight my managing like. Oh so Steven Spielberg wants to meet you. So I went to Amblin which is on the universal lot in the whole lot. All great but there's like this one sections like Spanish villas like that stevensville offices. We went there and this is like before. Ps Ten does like here. Like a mall arcade in his office which is crazy and so we're they're playing video games and he brings me in and then he doesn't even me again we talk. We talk about a lot of stuff you talk about rats so Rizzo and talked about Dustin Hoffman. Because I know his playing hook at that time and we talked about films we talk about other things I did and then do you want me to read. He's like no no. You're good I just wanted to meet you and I was like what I walked out. My mom had to go. I don't think I got it like I read. You know and then a few days later they offer me the part which wild so read the part one time. When I was on the set I remember sitting on the pirate ship and I was like. Hey Steven like never auditioned like read the roll one time and someone offered me the job. How did that happen and Steven was like Yeah Dante. Like at of all the kids we. You're the only kid that scared me. And but you know when I think about it now inside. I'm living in paramount right. And this is ninety one. You know kids were getting shot in my school. Like my best friend. Like one of our friends got killed his girlfriend. There was like guns everywhere drugs. We you know there's like life and death situations going on every day. There was like a big race war blacks breast of Mexicans. Where where what side are you on? Oh we need to get out of here at lunch or like you know it's going down and when you're dealing with like that kind of environment to degree the lost boys gang. I just the leader of the gang and so I think some of that was you know brought to the surface when doing the character and I think that kind of resonated with Stephen. I think that Kinda helped my the whole thing so
The casts of The Goonies, Friday Night Lights, and Melrose Place are all reuniting
"The one of the things that's come out of our quarantine in this covert nineteen world is the reunions of your favorite old TV shows I think a lot of people are going nostalgic right now anyway just in terms of what you're watching because we're all kind of harkening back and grabbing for a simpler time but also there's so many opportunities now for people to connect over zoom over Google hangouts over all the other meeting apps so now we're getting a ton of reunions you remember John Krasinski reunited with his office co stars recently the cast of that thing you do linked up over a virtual screening of the of the comedy after the death of the lead singer of fountains of Wayne the Goonies just did a reunion of Friday night lights having a reunion and Melrose Place is having a reunion tonight six five one six four one one oh seven one what TV show cast would you like to see reunite remember the cast of the nanny did a table read of a show the first yeah and you know Bradley you'll you brought this Josh gad is kind of at the center of a lot of these reunions well he he's the one behind the Goonies and there's this new web series and it's called reunited apart with Josh gad the first one is the Goonies and that premiered yesterday it was actually I mean I'm sure somewhere I was paying attention better than we were but I saw this yesterday morning and it took place live at about eleven o'clock our time yesterday after morning but then I watched it when I got home and it was about thirty minutes like twenty six some minutes of Josh gad hosting a reunion with literally your favorite people from the Goonies and not only your favorite people but like the writer the director and Steven Spielberg so he brought all these people together it was just like frankly I think one of the reasons these are happening is because it's so it takes such little resources to make it happen you literally just have to have the people and by the way nobody's doing anything right so everybody is available to show up for
Top Five Mark Wahlberg Movies: Say Hi to Your Mother for Us | The Big Picture
"Unfortunately this Shithole has more fucking leaks in the Iraqi navy. Fuck Yourself. I'm tired from fucking your wife. How's your mother good? She's tired from fucking my father. You have a job Tom. I'm a firefighter. Oh God bless you a hero. I'm not hero. We'd all be here. We could use the petroleum. No excuse me Christmas. Utah a lot of fucking money. What did you do? I mean if you take away nothing else for my class from this experience let it be this. If you're not a genius don't bother right. The world needs plenty of electricity and a lot of them are happy and they can help. It really can't be that we can always do. Better let me keep trying. If you guys keep trying I'm shawn fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about Mark Wahlberg. This episode may break the all time record for big picture dissonance later in the show. I have an interview with Kelly. Reichardt the writer and director behind independent film classics. Like old joy. Meek's cutoff in the new film. First cow which might be the best movie of Two Thousand Twenty so far. I hope you'll stick around for that but I were joined by the frog. Sheriff Chris Ryan. I heard that Mark. Wahlberg actually dropped out of first cow. He was gonNA play the cow Alao. But you're already doing animal. Humor here on driver too is calling. Chris. You're here because you're a fan of Mark Wahlberg work. He's The star of a new movie. That is hitting Netflix. This Friday called Spencer confidential. I think gets his fifth film with Peterberg. The actor turned director of such films as lone survivor and deepwater horizon. This is a very strange movie but I think it's going to be a a very watched movie because the corona virus is scaring America into staying inside their house. And so I think that there's a potential for a lot of viewership of this movie. So we're talking about Mark Wahlberg one of the most resilient and persistent movie stars. I guess of the past twenty five years so let's just start with WHO is Mark Wahlberg. How did this happen? That Mark Wahlberg became one of the signature figures of movies in the twenty first century. I would not say I'm a fan of Mark Wahlberg as like I'm a I'm agnostic as a citizen. Yeah I would say that. I am very interested in the way that he has conducted his career. Which is kind of a weird throwback to a studio systems our he makes three to four movies every eighteen months somehow and just releases them at like a hugely prolific rate at. I'm fascinated by all the little pockets of his career that he has created where he repeats. You know he goes back to these little micro genres that he and he works a lot of people over and over again by the way he kind of has conducted his career to me is almost unique among Hollywood movie stars anymore. I mean most of the time when people achieve a certain level success. They just like see in three years for my next blockbuster or award fodder and he's just like nope. I'm grinding out. Family movie violent action film and then every once in a while Raunchy comedy and it's just like pretty pretty like unique among all Hollywood stars so I'm fascinated. What do you make them Amanda? I was fascinated when going back to you. Remember how many great directors he's worked with and how many actually excellent movies he's been in. Chris was asking me how much we watching I had to do for this podcast and the answer is a lot. Because I wouldn't say that Mark Wahlberg stays with me besides certain shots that will certainly be discussed on this podcast but he especially I guess in the first decade of this century just goes on a tremendous run. I really from Boogie nights on and works with a does a lot of really great movies and then kind of decides to just become like the Peterberg comedy guy in the second decade of the century. And I it's a really interesting shift. He just Kinda decides no. I'm going to do this now. And it's very fascinating to me I can't really make sense of. I also is Christmas talking about his efficiency. Just pulled up his daily schedule. Do you guys remember the days? Will he wakes up. Like four o'clock in the morning posted this on his own instagram typical daily scheduled to thirty. Am Wake Up. What don't you forty five prayer time. Three fifteen am breakfast. There's a lot of work work. He's golfing from seven thirty to eight. Which is the golf people? And there's a chamber recovery at nine thirty that takes more time than golf workout number two lunches and our so our meeting slash work calls also an hour and he goes to bed at seven thirty PM and which in Los Angeles for. I'd say six at least six months of the year. That is still broad daylight. Yeah Yeah Su. There is real efficiency baked into this. He's clearly very deliberate guy. He's making choices. And I think that pertains to his daily life and also his his career. There is clearly thought going into this. It's not a type of thought. I can access. I still don't know why you would wake up at two thirty and I don't know why you would do like five deep water horizons. There's a rumor that he has a routine. I think you. I'm speculating here. But I think he's a member of Wilshire Country Club here in Los Angeles. My husband told me this last night and he likes to play alone. He likes to play. And that's why he's playing so early in the morning and he's trying to get in like a quick nine or quick eighteen. I don't know five days a week which I'm who among? Us would love to do that if I could wake up before five. Am I would do it. I'll tell you I would love to do that. I'll tell you something else I am. I find golf to be social and I get crippled like when I play by myself. I'm like all the neurosis is creeping like. Should I take another shot now like it really playing golf? If you're not playing with anyone can just tell you. He's got three snacks on the schedule. Including one that takes an hour and a half from eight to nine thirty. Am is snack after seven. Thirty to eight am golf. Probably a euphemism. Oh Okay so you think. His sessions are ninety minutes. So you're saying to jump off something. Amanda said You know who? He reminds me of a bizarre way Cruz. Where it's like that run. Where cruises like I'll just work with Barry Levinson Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg and every great director at it seems like I'm just the most important factor in the whole world and then one day he wakes up and says I'M GONNA make action movies for the rest of my life? It's very unlikely though. I mean his origins restraints obviously member of this very well known family. He's from Massachusetts. He starts out as a a rap artist and ultimately becomes a Calvin Klein M. C. An. Mc Yes we watched the vibrations video. Recently I took my top five twenty two. Would you make of good vibrations? And and how did you feel about the funky bunch all these years later? It's just really bizarre that this was a thing that we lived through. Who is the funky bunch? I I still don't know who's in it. Were you in a Chris? Thought it was the backup dancers. I mean yes. That's who they were but like do you know anything about them and where they are now. I was pretty. Yeah I was pretty. I was pretty authentic back then so I was. I was already listening to deep deep newer. Grab I love talking about the early nineties with you. Can we talk about the Calvin Klein ads for a second really really important? You're almost put these on my list. And it's and my honorable mention boxer briefs. Yeah I was still a boxer sky back then that was not interested in the product. Would you just tear the ads out of the magazine? Crumpled them up and throw them in the garbage. I think that the those are the signature moment in his career without the advertising campaign he would not have become weirdly Tom Like sub Tom Cruise but he you know. He soared to a of fame on that ad campaign. They're just extremely important. Ninety s imagery obviously came as also in them. And that's where the whole K. Moss thing starts Them Hating each other. Great early celebrity feud they're very important that's all and also it looks great. I mean he and his image was of basically like a tough guy with a bad attitude whether that was true or not he obviously got into some altercations and his his personal history is pretty complicated. We're not gonNA spend too much time talking about on this show. But I think that he basically leveraged his complicated persona in the public into a movie career and if you look at the first few movies that he makes replays these kind of like weird intimidating Undeveloped YOUNG MEN. You know in the basketball diaries in. Ryen Russillo favorite movie fear And even in boogie nights. There's something like violently adolescent about his his persona which is very different from the kind of actor and movie star that he is right now so a lot of times. I think that we could. You could write like a series of essays about how much actors of his generation have attempted to mimic the kind of like rough and tumble blue collar upbringing. That Walberg apparently had like how how often like DiCaprio Damon or these guys have tried to be like no I'm Jim Carroll and he's just a function Carol I'm the real thing but it's weird like even in his authenticity. If you WANNA call it that he still lacks like any kind of emotional intelligence or psychological depth to portraying those things and you could write all these essays. But you could just watch the departed. Because that's what this does that. Do you need that from an actor? Do you need to feel like this person is like in control and has that depth that Chris was talking about? I think I do ultimately. I think that there is a reason that I gravitate to Matt Damon instead of Wahlberg. And I think that you not just because of the departed and the Boston. Bill will talk about that a lot as a comparison but I like I said I really remember a lot of Walberg performances. Even though he's been given a lot of great ones and I think that's because they have a I don't WanNa say surface level. That's unfair. They're actually a lot of depth but they aren't the emotional depths and I think I personally don't hang onto those. I think I'm always wondering how in command of the Ark of his career. He is because you pointed out he makes he's. I mean he's just been a lot of great movies a lot of movies that are going to stand the test of time and it always seems like he's being cast the way that a lot of young actresses or cast as the. Nayef as the like the naive and innocent who gets corrupted when put into a system and like did someone in a room. Say That to him. This is your lane man will early like you think so. Well I just don't think that he I think he's largely in charge of the movies that he makes. Now he's like. I think that the movies that we see our movies that Mark Wahlberg once made for the most part and my suspicion is the reason he made that transition. Amanda was referencing about just mostly doing action. Comedy movies now is because those movies are more fun and easier to make for him there either like a physical challenge there like a day on the set whereas making boogie nights as hard Russell Smart. Yeah I think that he is both like sinking very strategically as the schedule would suggest and also like not over thinking it i. That's the VIBE. I guess sometime at the end of the day he's going like it very much is what it is. He is a very Surface level or just immediate actor. That's that's what you're getting and so I think he wants. He gets to produce the movies himself and make the decisions. You just kind of like. Yeah action comedies. Got There before we get into our top fives and I think we should figure out what we mean. When we say top five if it's five performances or his top five movies because there's some complexity. There is a very strange celebrity. The the nine eleven thing is you're staring right at. It's just hanging over my head as I think about him as a public person. So in twenty twelve Walberg was quoted in a magazine interview regarding. What would have happened if he had flown aboard American Airlines Flight? Eleven on September eleventh. Two thousand one. He'd been booked on a flight on flight. Eleven but his plans changed the day before the scheduled flight and he cancelled his reservation. Walberg received public criticism for stating quote. If I was on that plane with my kids it wouldn't have went down like it did and there would have been a lot of blood in that first class cabin and then me saying okay. We're going to land somewhere safely. Don't worry Warburg apologized for those statements. But they're actually the sort of thing that kind of inform his public persona and when we watch him in an action movie. We think that he's the kind of guy who's like I would have kicked some ass on nine eleven which I don't know if you like complicates the quality of the films that he makes but I can't get stuff like that. Outta my head once I've read or heard about it and I feel like we've referred back to it even in a joking fashion over the years right. Yeah it is definitely one of the top three things that I think about. When someone says Mark Wahlberg schedule yeah nine eleven yeah and the last night of prosthetic but like you know. I'm human beings. It's the point of the movie full movie as leading to that so yes I agree. It's funny he is both. I think very funny as a comedic actor like entirely humorless and it's that some things he's in on the joke on some things he's just kind of being like no I would have save. I would have stopped nine eleven. Which is just a ridiculous thing to say. And that's the joke of Andy Sandberg's say Heidi Mother for me. Yeah you know portrayal of him is this is like he's kind of total rube but also not. There's something very elusive about. Whatever's going on with an entourage thing it's like. Do you watch entourage because you think it's completely ridiculous or do you watch entourage because you think it's like six awesome representative drama and I dare to say that Mark Wahlberg is like Yup? That's how it went. I you probably think you're right. Insulin entourage Ari comes on and it's really like Whoa but most but he's like that's accurate me. Like Vince is very much living my experience. He's like we should make a show about it. I think. I think that you guys are right. Do you think that this should be five performances or top five movies I choose? I don't know I don't know where I landed. I think I did I tried to be interesting here but I I wouldn't say that any of these performances leap out at me except for my number one and number two as like excellent performances. They're more like movies. I really like was he ever given a truly great performance. Yes I I think. There's one and a half great performances on this movie and it's just a half is the end of boogie nights. No no I. Well that might be the case now. There's another movie I still did performances but I think they are. They are a little bit also an award for the movie knowing how best to use him right. Okay well then let's get into it. Let's go into our top five Mark Wilbur performances slash movies number five Amanda. Why don't you start us off? This goes out to Bill Simmons and apparently to right who I still have never met.

A Moment in Time, with Shari Belafonte
"Today. We're GONNA be talking sheriff about photography. So let's get into it Sherry. Welcome to our show. It's so great having Jose here so you have grown up around cameras now as a little kid all my life cameras aimed at you most again. Your Dad was Trenton Center. He was big deal. Back in the fifties sixties seventies. He broke down a lot of walls. Again everybody's familiar with his music and his acting and everything else. So you're smiling laughing about so. I was very hyperactive. Attention deficit as a child. I still lamb a little curtail with certain things now making native American blood you know wearing a bright orange camp right now you WanNa talk about it. Yeah Orange there you go. There's fast on. Go ahead I'm sorry. My Grandmother gave me my first Brownie camera. Now that's how far back I with the fan flash that you put the light bulb shit so I had that one. I was four years old. How many megapixel was and you would get this little tiny roll of film that you would put inside that Yummy and That was my first foray into being behind the camera and then instamatic semantic when I was I think I had a funny little polaroid camera that we had them all And my first legitimate camera was a pentax when I was eleven years old. Okay I was in boarding school by Matic or h three the it was. You know I can't remember I just. It was a thirty five millimeter Pentax Camera. That was dad's I know. Dad had a SPA top. Any passed it down to me so my entire high school was spent in the dark room. I smell like smoke. That was really attractive. Smell coming out of the yellow fingernails sitting in the dark. You Know Rolling and Rolling Rolling Rolling and then you know praying that you could put it in the CAN. It would come out and it wasn't all crumpled and you know so. Yeah I spent a good part of my earlier years behind the camera. And then of course like you said being Harry's daughter you know when we when he was on tour somewhere and there's Paparazzi or people taking pictures of us all the time and then Harry took pictures of us all the time that we never saw and it was the biggest joke because he was he always got get over there. Get OVER THERE. Get over there. Stop Stop Standards There. Hundreds and hundreds of pictures that were taken by. Harry and we've never seen a single one single. And why do you think that's the case? He just too busy to Kinda know if he ever developed and I don't know if there was even filmed the camera I think he had these Lycos and he just you know he just kept shooting once in a while. We saw him because he would. When he was a touring he would have these The program with this and it was always the big color program that would come with new. Buy A ticket and there would be pictures of us you know in there and we go to dad. Shoot that picture around. The house was photography kind of a respected medium. Was it an art to be an art. He did have a darkroom which he never went into. He just had it in the back next his recording studio but he did use a recording studio. Did use the recording. But Yeah we always have been shutterbugs. I think the whole definitely me more so than I think my siblings but Harry was definitely behind the camera. He was into like us us a very like a like like like scandal. And what about the Paparazzi and stuff? Maybe it wasn't. I can't even say that it wasn't like it is now because Paparazzi but was it A pain in the bud. Was it something that you guys so I was so used to? You know because what happened is my hair Harry. In Marguerite. My mom was marguerite. She passed away a few years go but they divorced. When I was very young actually separated woman was pregnant with me so there was always that kind of people trying to take pictures of that that was going on but there was a little more of a sense of decency for lack of better words with authorizing I mean. Now it's like Oh goes the there were lines. That were not crossed back then. I mean chances and stuff like that and they they definitely probably got onto your skin right probably worse today and usually think it was more of a magazine would come in. Ebony magazine would come in and say you know. Can we shoot you at home or and you know there was a story that was behind it and maybe the attorneys would go yet. It's good idea. Let's let's push that you know. Yeah we've always been around cameras for yourself. It's often family. What kind of things interested you would sort of you know? In the days I was in boarding school in Massachusetts so I I've always been a fan of black and white. I never learned how to process color and of course slides for the first things. You sort of learned. I never learned how to process but I was always into the dynamic of black and white so with the snow in Massachusetts. There was always the lights and shadows and you can stream you know falling through the ice no save. The camera saved the camera. Shot landscapes mostly landscapes. And then I shot everything and then as I got older and could start a fording stuff. I actually stopped shooting for a while and then when Sam. I got married thirty five years ago. Sam gave me my first Yoeskamnoer. I had by then already onto Canon cameras. But you know hey a one and the that great but then Sam gave me my first Kammer after maybe not shooting for ten years and we went on our honeymoon to Italy and I just shot like crazy like bags and bags film was carrying at the time. Kodak made what was called recording fill in the recording. Four seventy five four and as soon as you develop it would turn into a corkscrew that you can never hold flat that I didn't know because by then I wasn't processing okay but Three hundred you could you. Could you could set the The whatever you wanted I mean you couldn't with any film but this was if you decided to shoot at or if you wanted to shoot one hundred thirty two hundred or sixty four hundred. Just remember what you shot that at and you'd process it like if I shot four hundred three sixty I process it at four hundred by shoot at three sixty and I mean the detail was. It's crazy it's like mega pixels eight thousand and I just fell in love with that and then when Kodak stopped making it because they said well you know nobody's buying it because it was twelve dollars a roll and I know buying it. No please keep making and then shortly after you know film just kind of went by the wayside and now it's coming back. Is it coming back to us? Sales were up twenty percent last year. So you now actually have to try and find a film camera. I still actually have a rebel. Okay okay isn't it rebel? Originally rebels were killed. What was called the digital rebel? No megapixel but I did have for the Canon thirty and I was started shooting movies of Friends of mine. Who were directors said? Would you shoot stills movie and I remember get going into get a sound blimp made for my digital camera and the guys in you and Steven Spielberg's guy or the only people that have blimps for you. These eight thirty eight sixty. Whatever I add albertson blimp. Right Jacobsen Jacobsen recently closed down. There's no need for any other. No ex- exactly. I've got this this whole box downstairs in the garage is because like don't need the blimp. Next time lenses by the I worked on a movie as recently as Twenty fifteen and with a digital camera and they recorded a blimp ahead to go rent one. I mean even even that little clique. If you're onset now we have an issue thousand frames so that one was especially digital you shoot so fast. The first movie I did shoot I had asked me me. Leaders a friend of mine and she also is the executive producer and director of the morning. Show but at the time going back. You know fifteen twenty years. Whenever it was that I was shooting this I said to her. You know this is the first time shooting for a movie. What she's just keeps shooting shoot. Shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot so I did. I shot eight thousand seven hundred and seventy eight frames and thought okay. You know. I'm their mom. Put them all and give them. And then oh no we just need your best hundred. It took me like three weeks to go through every single one of those because I really looked like I was shooting movie. Everything was so slightly different. They know what would you take away from that experience? Really get an editor back to that five role mentality you know. They'll have a budget for three to five roles. And that's what you did shooting digital change anything when you when you shoot because obviously it did change a lot for a lot of people in this idea of shooting maybe too much or a lot or just the freedom they can give you. Some really changed a lot of people's now you know everything is it cyclical now. I've barely picked up my camera now. Also have a Sony seven hours and shooting with my Samsung Galaxy's the galaxy the first galaxy thing. I had a four note for one of the earlier. Ones the best pictures I've ever seen. I went on my God. Look at these pictures that I'm getting on my phone and now I have a lot of my family's mostly apple. Nothing you know not against apple but galaxies have much better pictures you know the Samsung just really has the better technology shooting with your phone and I know friends of mine even say your pictures are so much better than mine. Why is that slow data Samsung if Samsung only made and take get another phone? Get Your Samsung Stolz. But I still like I still like the weight of having a camera and shooting the cameras a different different animal. But now you know. There's a difference for photographers. I never was would call professional photography gallery shows and stuff but I'm not like Greg Gorman. Who was a friend of mine? I didn't shoot and I'm not making money like that as a photographer. And right now so many you can take so many pictures. I mean anybody can get good picture with their phone. You know you can. It's easier to get good pictures now than it used to be. You know you'd have to have a professional photographer do that. Well now I you know people take headshots their phones movies with your eyes. You can do anything. Us forces us to kind of rethink what I should be taking pictures of. And how many pictures should be taking reassessed kind of the nature of it and that's happening. I think you know this return to film. We're seeing people kind of wanting to slow back down a little bit trying to figure out what what's the basis of it. That's really what it is. It's it's a medium. It's like if you're an oil painter if you're into acrylics or if you're doing you know pencil drawings if you're into sculpture it's a it's all worthy it's just a matter of what your taste isn't what it is that you're shooting at that

"Works spot. People are on Snapchat anymore. It's okay. What is it? What I think I think it's an interesting way of building buzz and trying to kind of recapture like that monoculture with TV watching that is kind of dissipating now, I don't know if it'll work with just, you know, high profile names like Spielberg people will go to see field with movie, but will they tune in at like midnight to watch something? That was maybe written by Spielberg and may or may not be good. Who knows? I don't know. Yeah. Chris, what do you think about the, the viewing window? I mean I it's an interesting gimmick, I don't I don't really know. I mean, I'm interested just because even Spielberg is involved if he were as wasn't involved, I would have zero interest in this, so make of that, what you will. Yeah. And in this article, you also mentioned that Qube is going to be releasing seven thousand pieces of content in one year and twenty five pieces of content every day. So like this, you know we talking about, like I already feel like we're drowning in things to watch, and like a missing out on so many things just because everybody has a limited amount of time in their day. There's not, you know, we can't just sit around all day watching stuff, but like this is so much more. And it would be so easy to ignore if it didn't have such high profile people attached to it. But I don't know if we're going to be able to ignore, you know, new content written by Steven Spielberg. Like just from a, a, a I don't know a pop culture. Perspective. Like as she was talking about, like we'll audiences show up for this. I don't I don't know if general audience as well, but certainly people who care about movies enough to be listening to this podcast and reading slash foam on a regular basis will probably be interested enough to seek it out. So Chris, as somebody who covers the streaming beat for the site all the time. I mean, how are you, even you like pulling your hair out just the thought of quitting? And like all this extra content that you may not have to cover man. I don't I can't even imagine covering like everything on there. I guarantee if we cover anything, it's going to be like the big stuff like this, and yeah. Beyond that. I like you know, I can't I can't even imagine. I just. It's so hired. Tired? Know how long these pieces of content will be because seven thousand is lot. Like, will they be traditional forty five minute episodes of the series? Will they be half hour? Will they be like ten minutes long? You don't have to make sure it's like tend to tend to twenty minutes or something is like, the, the area that they're in for isn't the right, Chris. Yeah. It's going to be a ten minutes is really. I think like the max, I twenty years, even pushing it. So it's gonna be like ten minutes stuff multiple episodes. And then I don't even know how you because you're going to be ads. I don't know how you even insert ads that. I guess the idea is you, you stream the entire season of. But then doesn't it take away from the whole short-form thing I guess like an entire season when add up to like a half hour? I don't even know. I don't know like yeah. And then on top. I mean my brain is breaking over here, too. Because like with the Spielberg show if the viewing window is only at midnight, does it just disappear, then or can, you binge it later because it seems like it would defeat the purpose, if it's acceptable later on, if they're if they're trying to force you to watch it at night, because it's creepy or something then anytime, I don't know. Maybe they're going to do that, for haven't just be accessible during the, you know, whatever let's pretend it's midnight to two AM or something on the day that it drops. And then maybe the wait like a month or something. And then have it be accessible for people to, to bench late or something? I don't know. There's so many questions about this. But as Chris mentioned Qube itself isn't even going to watch until what'd you say, April twenty twenty I think so we've got some time to try to figure this out. And hopefully people can ask Jeffrey kassenberg, who's one of the brainchild people behind this, the maybe it's more questions. Get them to detail exactly how the hell. It's going to work. But in the meantime, all of us will be pulling our hair out, trying to figure out what the hell is going on with Kobe and content and all of this on a daily basis. But.

"They've gone downhill. You are essentially the problem. You are why we like Netflix and the stuff that they're creating because we don't have to go to theater because guess what we don't always have time. You know, we kind kinda save our we're going to the theaters for certain things. Like, for instance, I'm going today with Chad Perry and my two youngest kids. We're going to go see captain marvel tonight. That the thing is well there's a couple of festivities fistful. This Steven Spielberg and everybody else in the movie industry is quite happy to get second-string fees for them movies by issue the month DVD, and ultimately put them on cable and then to the streaming services. Right. So don't turn around and say well movies on proper unless they're experiencing they face with other people wrote with all the features on the DVD DVD's and four what's that about? Yeah, why not support those plant from what do you support TV's a platform toll? If you don't think that's appropriate to watch movies. Secondly, you, and I both know that the majority of executives in Hollywood. And the Georgia jury sent home does. Well, don't go and see them movies in regular movie faces they see in private screening rooms you've found pro the law of the wash them on big screen TV's. Yeah. So don't turn around denigrate that experience like it's not as good as a movie. It's a yeah. There are plenty of people invest enough money to make somethings probably better than the movie theater. And I would argue the even today when this is not like CRT's an full three and scan if the nine thousand nine hundred ninety s yeah, everyone's kgo TV's perfectly capable of watching and presenting movies in a pretty good similar chrome of of what you get in the movie Faiza. Yeah. Yeah. So that's another the things. Well, this is just purely being threatened threatened and rolling bracing it and saying, oh, you know, mom, Steven Spielberg.

"Okay there was never an alternative universe where steven spielberg actor is the dominant force it was never something you gravitated towards no never i never saw myself as a performer in front of the camera ever again that's interesting because i spoken to number directors over the years who said that they've taken acting classes gamma del toro i took acting classes to study with jeff corey when i was in college but i i didn't take acting classes to become an actor i took acting classes to become a director precisely so how does it help to help you become more empathetic to help you come to terms with different actors to kiss because every actor is different i presume you don't dry tom hanks same way you direct meryl streep right active schools really good for me acting class was good for one thing it shows me how hard actors have to work not just to improvise not just to memorize their lines and but to withstand the withering criticism of an acting teacher lot of the activists are brutal that these they were when i was growing up and going from class to class there were some acting teachers light joan darling that that she used love to to make you see in within yourself inside yourself better but other acting teachers were were very much of the part of the strasbourg discipline and you it really teaches you to put your ego in a drawer and lock the drawer and just be vulnerable and let those feelings be memories for the rest of your life those feelings of vulnerability is something that you had you careers something you had for example directing peter falk back in colombo would do you use the same techniques with him issue you tom hanks.

"Steven spielberg's big return to blockbusters because his last few movies which i think are great they're great movies but they're not big blockbuster films and this has that you know that sifi angle had special effects spects angle but apparently not doing not doing the trick i'm kinda surprise i mean i'm not excited by these trailers ready player one but you know that the source material sounds promising i've read the book in steven spielberg back in the blockbuster game you know pat everybody keep sun like can of crappy on these like you know these posters we posted recently a you know it seems like everybody's thicket dump on how much this movie is kind of trying to relate itself within the stalls ya um each t what are your thoughts like why are people not excited for ready player one well i actually read the truck i read the entire thing in shop and while it has a really interesting pannos it's a pretty bad buck it skates by i'm tapping into your the like the best nostalgia of bad 1980's and lots of pages just end up being entirely lifts and feeling like it's just reading a wicket pedia page of remember the 1980s so it's it's not a great source material i don't think and it ha it also tasked dangerously into a lot of ideas the toxin toxic masculinity without quite as dressing it early so i am a little nervous about the movie i really love scenes building and i trust him but i don't know if i can trust him to elevate a book like this to a movie that's actually good.
