Do Yourself a Favor and Watch 'Fandango'
"Earlier yesterday I was thinking about movies that I love that aren't mentioned a lot. I made sure to count the film that a young Kevin Costner started and it's a movie named Fandango. This is one of those crazy things in my life. I think a Fandango the next guy got next day Gary brooker dies. And then I got a story about me and Debbie and Ivan the bushes. But Fandango is a movie 1985, kind of a comedy, it was originally a student film made by a guy named Kevin Reynolds. It was a parody of Greek life that is Alma mater of Baylor university, but because his father was the president in Baylor, he didn't want to portray the institution in an unfavorable light and he made believe it was about the University of Texas and the film is now a cult classic. If you haven't seen Fandango, try to find it, Steven Spielberg saw the film and he helped fund a feature length comedy about 5 college students from Texas in 1971 who go on a last road trip together. That's what Fandango's about. And celebrate the privilege of youth. And if I didn't just describe what I had in the bushes with Debbie and Yvonne, if that's not the privilege of views, I don't know what is. And these guys go off and face graduation, marriage, the draft of the Vietnam War. It's very poignant. So do yourself a favor. Find that film, it's really sweet and beautiful. And I mean, what film strong a young Kevin Costner isn't. But it is a real magical film. It's a real sleeper.

"It may be possible that it may possibly be that mister Spielberg has chosen gigantic size on unlimited quantity as his comedy method in the awareness. He has no gift whatsoever for small scale comic conceits. Trying to cover it up by going big. Yeah, I like that. That was by Vincent canby. He was a famous reviewer from New York Times. So that was I believe that was probably at the time the film came out, I believe. He also did escape in review of heaven's gate around the time as well, similar time. Again, talking about those waters that ought to air a so big question is that we may have already answered a little bit is did Steven Spielberg go in the wrong direction with 1941. Well, I mean, the answer is yes, but you put out but you put out there that really fascinating insight of like, yes, but it turned out to be a good thing. So yes, but no. Yes. And no. There's no definitive answer. There is absolutely no definitive answer. And I don't really like having definitive answers in the podcast anyway. I like having the everyone's got an opinion, everyone's got a choice and we particularly did not care for this film and there are other people that other peoples or the people absolutely love this and think it's amazing. And again, fair play to them, but yeah, I think I agree with, I agree with myself and you and my earlier statement. Yeah, I think this needed to happen for him to set. This could have killed his career easy. Yeah, he's got an easily killed his career. He could have gone nowhere. Like Michael cimino and heaven's gate, he went absolutely spiraled after heaven's gay and everything, but you know what? Fair play to old Spielberg. He pulled up his bootstraps. He went, yep, I can bounce back. I know what I'm doing. I know what I've done wrong. I'll go back to what I know best. And again, he is funny. He knows how to do comedy, but you're not this type of comedy. Not without a decent protagonist and again, there's none of those classic techniques we were talking about. The zoo. It's unrecognizably as Spielberg movie. There's nothing about this that's still going maybe at all. Nothing sore. I know milius was supposed to direct it initially, but he was his pet project, which I think was a surfer film, I think. I could be wrong..

"That's done. It was too loud. I thought it was too loud and the music was still out of the effects of two ads. I'd go to one of those live orchestral things. I go watch John Williams doing the score for it, that'd be great. That'd be fine. I'd be up for that. Just don't bother putting it on the screen in the background. Just close your eyes and imagine a funnier film. Yeah, that's what I do. They did a screening of it as well that year. And they released the restored score on CD and Gail turned up a fetish and fate Chan. So I think it was the producer, Tim Matheson and Nancy Allen turned up as well. And they loved being in the film. They said it was just a great party, we had a great time, lots of fun. I thought it was. That thing of like, if you're having a good time to say, it doesn't often translate a good time. Oh, absolutely, yeah. I imagine that a great time. I'm glad they did. Yeah. It's like somebody out to have a good sign making it because it's not that great. Maybe a good time watching it. I know we didn't. But yes, I think that's everything I wanted to say in that regard. I'm just going to have to just have a look at the Rotten Tomatoes. I'm going to do this for this one because for this format. I don't usually do it, but I think it's interesting to see where the divide is. So the out of 24 reviews, it's got 42%, so that is a rotten rating. That is generous, I think. And then 48% audience score. So it's not too dissimilar between and that's 10,000 people's ratings. But that means 5000 people I think this is good. Yeah. My God. That's maths. That's the maths of 1941. Do you think the title is good? I think it's a confusing title. I think you could like, you could confuse what this is about. Like, if you want to watch a Spielberg movie called 1941, I went, oh yeah, I love Spielberg. It does. You know, Saving Private Ryan, raiders, oh yeah, that sounds great. And then you see this. It doesn't provide you with the tone at all, no. Because there was 1917, wasn't it? Sam Mendes, but like that's Uber serious. And that comes across it. And the marketing as well. It doesn't necessarily say if you watch like initial trailer. It's just like Steven Spielberg, 1941. That's kind of it's not like maybe whoever was in charge of marketing knew it wasn't funny. Probably. And they were like, how do I sell this? They get paid a lot marketers, but they do have a hard job of it. We'll put it that way. But yeah, so this is some of the reviews very shortly as well on there. David Musa of real film reviews says as somewhat interminable misfire. One out of four, that's a rotten review. Danielle solzman of sols is at the movies. Led by some of the biggest names in comedy at the time, 1941 is Steven Spielberg's most underrated film of all time. Of all time, I like temple of doom..

"Which it infers that she because she's more overweight, or a larger lady, I don't want to offend any ladies out there that, you know, the larger frame. I've got a larger frame as well. So she's not your Hollywood starlet. No, exactly. And the other one is very much is like the joint in the USO show and stuff. And she's not your average Hollywood star, like you've said. But I think there's a gag there that's supposed to be some comedy there, but because she can fight too because she's brawny. Yeah, of course she knocks guys out. And she can throw him around, you know, so there's like, oh, he's not that masculine, but she is sort of, there's a gag there, and definitely is, yeah. To see the gags, but they're not the execution of them. Is it Billy? Is that the character that the daughter character? Yeah, I think Ned beat his daughter's character. Yeah, like again, she very much fits a kind of hitchcockian Spielberg mold, doesn't she? She's very kind of Willy from temple of doom. Yeah. Watching that documentary that you sent me. There was a lot of Spielberg with a camcorder talking to her and spending time around her I noticed. Oh, really? An object of his affection, I think, yeah. Well, you know, they're very similar blond, temple of doom, you know, similar character. He was like, absolutely. I love annoying women that scream they're the best. They're my favorite. That is my kink. I love characters. Annoying blond women from the 30s 40s that scream a lot. They're my favorite. But yeah, I'm stepping up. That is definitely true. We've solved that today, Tarantino feet. Annoying. Bombshells thing. So yeah, and we talked about Hitchcock and his lady as well in our last box. We did. It's all coming together. These bloody directors and their kinks. There's a character I've got to ask you about. Sure. When we're at the brigade to the oceanfront and they see you guys get put up on the Ferris wheel, which I know they want it to be, the honeymooner guys, was it Art Carney and other person school. Yeah, because our client was in the Star Wars holiday special, as you know. And what was his name? Forget it, right? But by this point they weren't talking with us. So we have the kind of the grumpy old man. And then we have the younger guy who put together and they're like on watch out there in a Ferris wheel over the seafront and it turns out the younger guys are ventriloquists. I don't want to talk to people and I think is the actor. You've heard you've heard that voice before avenue. If you've heard that voice from every annoying nerd you've ever heard in a film. And it usually is voiced by him, I think. I think he might have been on Dexter's lab as well. I think he played the villain in Dexter's lab. I think it's mandrake or something moon dark or whatever his name was. But he's also got the mayor from jaws up there, haven't you? Oh, is that who is that over there? Yeah, it's a Maurice that out. Yeah, that's him. He's got big glasses on and a hat, but that is him. Funnily enough. On the documentary we watch. They were like, well, we want Eddie D's and then the film, they're like, we need eddies and in the film for some reason. And Murray Hamilton went up to Spielberg and he went, you know what? I'm not going to have any problem with the playing this part..

"To the very first wrong direction where we look at a popular director's less successful work and try to determine what led them down that road. And we are going to start with a big one with a big name director, the biggest name director. It's a household name. And we're going to talk about not a household name film. We're going to talk about 1941, Spielberg's First World War II comedy epic. And we're going to decide whether his creative shift from his previous films was was it worth it? Was it not worth it? Did it feel good about it? Did it feel bad about it? How were the reviews? We'll find out, but I'm going to introduce the film guy as Tony likes to call him. We're going to introduce Jack is back. And as we know, loose lips sink ships. And I'm going to hand over to Jack. And we're just going to talk about Spielberg before we get into the film about this techniques, his style, the kind of films he's done, what he likes to look at in his films, what he gets right, what he gets, maybe he gets a little bit wrong, who knows. But Jack, take us to school. I mean, thanks for inviting me on again. It's great to see you. And this is a great way to start because as you said, you probably don't a lot of people are still thinking about don't know the name of directors. I think just Joe on the street, Jane on the street, namely ten directors. They might not be able to. But everybody knows Spielberg. So this is definitely the right place to start, I think, for this feature. This was definitely the wrong direction. We have to go in. When you look at that run that he's got going. I mean, we can take the sugarland express, which is his first official film, if you don't count duel. Then we take jaws and close encounters, and then we'll skip 1941 when we get to raiders. So without 1941, that is it. I mean, water run that is jaws Clayton counters and raiders. I mean, I'm not sure though to ever be another run of that could ever compete with that, really. But there's 1941. Which, for the film guy, as Tony likes to call me, I've never seen it until this. And part of me wishes I never had. Scathing review already already. I certainly don't feel like it's brought anything to my life that I was missing. Let's put it that way. It's not the diamond in the rough for you. Because this is quite a divisive film. There's a lot of people on either side of the wall. On my Facebook, I had two people that went, oh, I loved this when I was a kid. And I was like, and I was like, have you seen it now? And also I'm watching a two and a half hour version, the director's cook. And they both it was like they both did like the shocked emoji. And I was like, yeah, it is that long. And it's a comedy. And it feels twice as long, probably. Yeah. I mean, again, we're getting way out of ourselves. Let's write it in. We'll get to it. We'll get to it. But let's talk about Spielberg. What a season one for cinema, what's his legacy?.

"It's a little film called ET. You guys ever heard of it? Joanna, you don't need to share your deepest personal history with the listeners, but this is a children of divorce podcast. And so obviously, you know, we're just really taking that subject head on here. I mean, I'm kind of like, I don't know why Steven Spielberg needs to make an autograph autobiographical film because he already made ET, you know? And then basically there's just like the weird intense very scary 30 minute medical military state drama in the middle of it, which I rewatched this movie last night, cried many times. I really love ET so much. And but it is so strange how scary this movie is, which, again, putting kids in peril, yes, Joanna. He loves to do that. And also, the 80s were just a different time, I guess, in terms of what we decided kids were ready for, including being in a medical tent with your alien friend who's just dying. And every single law enforcement officer coming to get you. But, you know, they save the day. In terms of iconic imagery, I guess you can't I mean, there's so many Spielberg movies, but just the bike and the moon and the kids flying and when the John Williams comes in. If you had to distill Spielberg down to 30 seconds, I like maybe this is what you pick, maybe not. There's some other movies. That's what's so hard about Spielberg and I felt it was a little obvious putting ET on my list, but at some point that is also like this Spielberg experience. Has made single handedly constructed. Mainstream American blockbuster movies himself. So this is a beautiful and pretty screwed up movie about about finding finding yourself and finding your finding your Friends, even if your dad isn't there, which he's not. I think your listeners would throw their phones in the ocean if none of us had each other. So thank you for saving us from that. Completely. And my friend mat patches did a great essay years ago about this concept of Spielberg face and Henry Thomas as Elliot is the number one Spielberg face when I think about that sort of stuff. Yeah, an incredible film. It deserves exactly what you're talking about. I love ET. I'm not going to be like ET is lesser or greater than previously. When he wakes up, oh my God. It's so beautiful. And baby drew. Yeah. Okay, number two, I'm having a battle with myself. I'm having a battle with old me and knew me. Old me is close encounters of the third kind. Okay. I'm Richard Dreyfuss.

"I'm Shawn fantasy. I'm Amanda Robbins. And this is the big picture, a conversation show about Steven Spielberg, perhaps you've heard of him. This week marks the release of west side story Spielberg's first musical, a remake and modest reimagining of the show that was originally conceived by Jerome Robbins with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by the late great Stephen Sondheim, the original 1961 film, is legendary in Hollywood history at one best picture at the Academy Awards, along with 9 more Oscars and it remains one of the most gorgeously photographed and choreographed movies ever made. So I think Amanda, and I both had our doubts about the necessity of this remake and how foolish we were. Joining us to talk about ws S two and the work of Spielberg is a ringer senior staff writer, ringer versus co host, my partner in succession podcasting, a Spielberg fan as well. Joanna Robinson hello. Hello. I'm a silver fan, but I'm even more a musicals fan. So I'm so excited to be here for this. So excited to meet Amanda. Likewise, and join you all here. So thanks for having me. Joanna, before we get started, just because I want to share this great shame. Were you at all nervous about west side story, the remake? Oh, hugely. I was like, okay. Don't want it. Sean. Okay. I was again, I was against it. Would you say we were profoundly wrong, deeply wrong? Foolishly wrong? How wrong were we to have doubted Spielberg Tony Kushner and the aligned forces of this remake? I think I'll say I love the movie. So that's true. But I think there are some people who still have their doubts and I think that's worth addressing. But I love this movie. I was very surprised very surprised. Amanda, what do you make of it? Yeah. I mean, I put it on my top 5 movies of the year on our podcast started to spoil that for you guys. That was a great podcast..

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.

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.

"Work with Steven Spielberg. That's why I'm doing this. Then, after the research turned into this is a great story. There's a chance here to write a good screenplay that could be a good movie. Uh, it's a great story, and it's a story I've never heard before. It went from that to Starting to become shockingly chillingly relevant. Uh, when suddenly Donald Trump was at rallies on, you know, Pope, protester in the back would shout something and he'd be getting dragged out. Trump would start reminiscing about the good old days when we carry that guy out of here on a stretcher, and I'd like to punch him right in the face and beat the crap out of him. When protest was being demonized, whether you know whether it was an athlete kneeling during the national anthem. That's what was going on. That made Steven uh finally say, OK, the time to make this movie is now we thought the film was plenty relevant last winter when we were making it. We didn't need it to get more relevant. But did you know with the shootings of Rianna Taylor and I'm an Arbor and George Floyd. The protests protesters being met by Again to your gas and nightsticks.

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.

"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.
"steven spielberg" Discussed on The Culture Quest
"We've done a comic we've done. We've done a lot of things and we figured that as we're trying to become more cultured, we're actually trying a lot of new things were accumulating a lot of information and knowledge and it kind of would be ashamed not collect it all in a manner that is kind of neat, and accessible. and. So we would like to introduce the culture quest essentials guide starting this episode we will decide whether the. Of. Each episode is worthy of a very prestigious mentioned in our essentials guide. This guide will include everything that we deem to be essential to anyone who is unacquainted become a person of color or you can kind of look at it as a list of good things to start with if you're just starting on your quest if intending to become more of a cultured person like we are. Maybe, this will be something you'd be interested in we will decide what to include in the guide by taking vote at the end of each episode and here's how it will go. At the end of its discussion, we will each get a chance to state our case kind of sheriff thoughts, and we would vote by whether or not. We feel that the subject matter is a major cultural milestone or by whether we've learned a lot from it or not, or by whether refill, it's an important step towards a life of culture personal opinions would be taken into consideration of course but to an extent, it's up to each of us to decide what weight to give our own opinions. For example, you heard our any hall. Episode I didn't think that the movie was ten out of ten at all but I definitely would have voted it into the guide like there's a lot of aspects to it that are relevant to anyone who's interested in storytelling it. All NFL it has a lot to do with being cultured. So something that is important to note will take the vote and inch vote has to be unanimous for the subject matter to be accepted like only things that will get three days across the board will be introduced into the Sikh, you E. G. or the guide. So. In short in time, the guide would become a list of the best of the best out of what we've encountered on request. and. So for the first time ever, let's vote guys. This is our first entry into the quake. Yep. Quick. Yeah. So this is our first vote or first. Entry, into the quake and like I said a unanimous vote would lead into the inclusion of drastic park in the colder quest essentials guide or the CG of the quick. So we will h state or case in regards to today's subject matter, and then we will vote with a gentlemanly. For Gay or an ominous stroke of a mustache for name. So Visual. Dependent things on a podcast but. They're doing a state your case. Yes. I think dress Apac is one of the few movies would dinosaurs. It's not like you have a whole selection of said of paleontology themed maybes and it's also one of the earliest films to really get CGI right. In addition to that, it's a Steven Spielberg maybe which is great just for the collection and also it's a major cultural event united those a lot of people that were became interested in sort of Donna Saws, and obviously one of the best movies semi L..
"steven spielberg" Discussed on The Culture Quest
"The movie smoothly continues to the next. Like I said, it's four minutes long and it's so big and how do you move onto the next thing like how do you keep this movie going naturally and they do this perfectly like you don't even think about it you know I can't even think of another movie that puts so much effort into making such big reveal moment like this work in a way that seems so effortless. Yeah. Usually this like the modern day equivalent is to like set paces away like this certain explosions coming in it's. A certain motorbike chase for the bond films I spend like wake setting out like the perfect shot whereas this. Is a CGI dinosaurs and naming on gross united, but they put so much effort into not the scripting because it wasn't much said, but they just light and this is true throughout the film they let the Cactus just brief united. Let them just be normal humans. That is not constant like zing are often zinger and the thing is Ian obviously does have zingers and stuff like that but he's personality stands out because everyone's doing the same thing. Like. If everyone was Ian than it just wouldn't be wouldn't be fun but it's fun to have like one character that's ever I know I can just relax and just actually. You know act like you would like this not like we need a whole paragraph of things and we only have thirty seconds. So let's just like get straight into I. Like this nothing like that. It's just natural. The way they feel and they do feel like regular characters like and this is this is true with a lot of Steven Spielberg's like is is regular people doing something that's. Irregular united and that's kind of the thing hooks you into a lot of the films like typical Steven Spielberg ones is like. What would it be like to do X. Unite like what would it be like to be on Jurassic? Park and? The way. To do it is to have people you can connect with with situations Yukon connect with you. Like, you always hear the saying a good movie shows you what the feel. It doesn't tell you what the feel and with the characters like this like grant and settler which I really can't connect with. In in Malcolm which like I said, he has a bunch of Zingers and everything he says is a bit cynical but. That's just who he is and you can connect with them, and then you see how amazed they are, and you can connect with that. You can put yourself in their shoes and feel what they feel during this reveal seen or later when they're on that kind of ride that you see that movie with me DNA and they give you then.

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.

"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.

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.

"What if this is a Steven Spielberg movie this would cost about ten million dollars for the screen I'm not kidding you now here's how that scene sounded from the firefighters point of view hi this is an actual radio chatter between firefighters that night need to us means a firefighter is missing down or trapped chief Ralph Terrazas says that's the call the since chills up every firefighter spine they're rare but we do it we practice at all the time and I've in my career I've had five to ten meetings to Roz's says there were flammable materials inside the building the name in front is smoke toques wholesale distribution there is butane in that building we saw a butane outside in the street the chief was speaking during a press conference Saturday night outside county USC Medical Center that's where the injured were taken alley fires medical director Dr mark Eckstine happen to be on duty that night all told we don't see any evidence of blast injury which is very very good and again the or the firefighters were awake and alert upon arrival some of them firefighters have superficial burns others have a partial to full thickness burns we anticipate at least one will probably need skin grafting at some point after the press conference I had a chance to speak with the chief one on one you know I am I saw that footage where they're running down that ladder threw that ball of fire have you ever seen anything like that no I haven't I haven't seen that footage of heard about it that's what was described in your people were on fire coming down there a lot so I pulled out my phone is shown in the video I recorded from the security guards footage uses the footage that was provided to me the ball of fire that you're talking about see see running down look at that and then that and then at one point then the chief motions for mayor Garcetti to come over and take a look at my phone you can see that this folder that they're running down the ladder through the ball of fire we get that footage from here to shop as I did when I first saw it I went back to the scene yesterday afternoon I wanted to see it in the daylight I had a chance to get up close overnight Saturday but I wanted to see what I missed that's when I ran into captain Erik Scott again so I asked him what he saw on the daily it was sobering to see the aftermath that was left there charred fire engine our members personal protective gear that you could tell was quickly ripped off for them and still sitting on the sidewalk with our turnout coats that had burned holes you could see some of the helmets were melted due to the heat and without a doubt it show the absolute intensity of what those members went for one thing I noticed fire extinguisher canisters they confuses me because I wondered what they were there for and and why they seem to be just laying about well that's a good question it's not a normal operation to pull out a small fire extinguisher instincts that you're going to do anything to an explosive blow torch of a fire likely that could have been utilized on our own members to put out their burning cokes you know you and I watched the video together last night and we saw this firefighters coming through that fireball and going down there and getting in getting to their tracking trying to get to safety once the last time you've ever seen anything like that this is the worst incident in recent history that our department has gone to from the fire scene in downtown LA for wake up call I'm Steve Gregory KFI news I have chills.

Lisa Manal, the men she was stack. Man, I'm not gonna lie to and that don't make nothing. Right. That's that. That Don't don't make. make. I remember CD with the school together. That was we would. Freshman. I didn't want us. Hype? The college news. Sees college really saying something there by only thing. Say I'm really earning. A lot too in this. You know what I'm saying? Like what was brought so our none get twisted. This not you know, what I'm saying. So. My wife is around you guys age is she says the same. She's like the role that we did see it happen. So we that's why he's kind of reacting like you guys you don't mean. But that's exactly like non big. And we've seen it. We see. Older than us. So when we first heard about it, we like, why wouldn't he? Sheet three years old. At fifteen sixteen years old even with a thin slender. Boy. Go ahead. I'm sorry. So like even timberland said, she was gorgeous. Like she was at that time. She was man that exceeded her age almost you know, what I'm saying what I just I'm just saying. Seem so bad. Some go a boot. Dame better at the same time not to cut you off. But that's not coast would right. Then it was grown. They was leaves. That's why I got up. On the whole labor for her. What about the rumor about the three some deal with her? No, mom and kills. You'll be hearing about this. Bad taste, man shit. Like, I'll be thinking that that's some fucking. Make that Steven Spielberg made this coming for. I used to live. From soco's gives a fuck. Happy to live on cloud them the last I live, right, especially the ones from Chicago. On them. John. Let's. You know, I'm gonna say shit. You wait. You know, what tell me why you say that? One thing is like a. Like, it's like it should be like a union of fellows like or something. And you got this apply. Fall. Brother. I notice. Talk to you. Like, you know, if you go in front of talk about hockey, if you man face and say, I got a problem with this or whatever what what was his motive for because you heard me. The difference row. What one things on one on one? One saying they know ended in the next if the judge. Right. I just look at it from the accountability point. I just don't I think those.

"And the way everyone at telltale found out about this and the way the seasons of died in their hands. And then was picked up. Is not great. That said, you're correct. It's awesome. That we get to find out what happens to clementine, and it's kind of cool, it some people who worked on are working on it again or that a company came in and saved it. It's always weird with this. Because there are works of Arctic at finish by other artists. And there's movies like, you know, not a great example. But a. Kubrick, Steven Spielberg who could repacked away and spill was like I'm gonna finish his movie, and then added like six more endings, or whatever it was. And the movies just not it doesn't it doesn't go well towards the end. I think time will tell when this game is over whether or not this was even a great plan to pick up. What was left and finish? It bring it to the finish line. I think there's no way to make everyone happy. There was no way to make everyone happy. Even if telltale had kept making it and never went in business because video game endings rarely satisfy everyone, you know, especially something like this. That's episode and had this shooter adventure element to it. You're so tied to your Clements. Exactly. Exactly. So there's no if they kill her. It's like, oh, how dare you? If she lives. It's like, but then what? Yeah. You know? So there's no great way for this to end for anyone. It's a weird byproduct of the industry is exists now Lucy you pretty much on the head initially of I'm happy that fans will get to see the end of Clement story at the same time. Or if they do finish the fourth sodas well at the same token, we talked about a bit when this happened. I Brian you mentioned the point chances are Clinton story will eventually have been raptured, no matter what. Because we're. Revivals and reboots and rushes happen all the time now, and that's just how entertainment works. Yeah. Give us shit about something. You'll probably hear how it wraps up whether or not you like that ending. And so it is interesting to see it being handled in this way, especially knowing the human side of it. Yeah. Enemy again. I haven't played the previous season. But it'd be interesting to see if it's lost something if his Los anything through this transition, and I'm sure it has. But yeah, I'd be interested to see like what longtime fans think. Yeah. I think for people who purchased the season pass. This is good because they are entitled to something that they purchase. Right. But I think that the best way to have handled. This would have been this is this is not great. But I think it would have been reimbursing everyone who purchase it already and finishing the story in a web comic. But then again, who who writes that who illustrates that? Yeah. I don't think we'll see the end of clementine or whatever this universe is wherever the story is it's the Walking Dead. It's still one of the even as it devalues it self over over time. It's so one of the most profitable things on earth. So yeah, this is weird story. I don't I don't I don't see why anyone would make video games period. That's basically the lesson of. Yeah. Yeah. I it's interesting to see what will happen with it. And also, the speaking of something being lost. You know, who knows what telltale could have gone on to do to also the big question. They obviously we saw leaks of the stranger things gain that they were likely developing. So like who knows what could have happened beyond Clem time story, and we will get that version of telltale story. No matter what. Yeah. It's a weird time to get invested in media. Like, I mean, like how many net marvel Netflix show just got cancelled and like punishable get cancelled a week after it airs problem. Yeah. And so like when something new comes out you want to jump on it and marathon it or be there at the beginning or sometimes you have to wait to make sure it gets renewed. And you know, sometimes you get there too late, and it's already over or your invested in dies. And I miss the days when they're a dislike three shows on TV. Yeah..
