Answers with John Cho?

In Selfie, you'll play Henry, a marketing expert who takes on the arduous task of teaching Eliza that being "friended" online isn't the same as having friends. What is Henry's main motivation for helping Eliza out?

I think it begins as an interesting project, re-branding a person. However, it turns into a genuine friendship.

What is a pivotal scene?

a moment in which changes something that plays a big outcome in the end.

Like that moment near the middle or end of Act 2 in any film/play where plots are twisted, characters' motivations and secrets are revealed, leading to new realisations, different perspectives, and new plans. There's a whole section on film and plot techniques in this textbook 'Manipulate Your Marker' by Mitchell Grotte - I found it super helpful when trying to analyse and define pivotal scenes.

Answers with Lesley Chilcott?

Why is "A Small Section of the World" a must-see for both men and women?

I am glad that this question exists because reading that the film is about women's empowerment, it may not come to mind for men to jump in and to see this film. But from screening this film in Costa Rica and many places in the US, and even Dubai now, men are just as moved by women when they see this film. When I was trying to come up with a title, we were joking around and someone said "Are you going to call it #WomenWhoHateMen?" And I said no, because almost all of the men that initially left the village in ASOMOBI have come back and they are now very much a part of the association. The whole community has changed and grown because the ASOMOBI women built their micro mill on top of the hill and started buying coffee from all the local farmers in the film, so men seem to be equally affected and inspired by the film.

Who is browning the filmmaker?

Tod Browning (born Charles Albert Browning, Jr.; July 12, 1880 - October 6, 1962) was an American motion picture actor, director and screenwriter.Browning's career spanned the silent and talkie eras. Best known as the director of Dracula (1931), the cult classic Freaks (1932) and classic silent film collaborations with Lon Chaney, Browning directed many movies in a wide range of genres.

Browning was born as Charles Albert Browning, Jr., in Louisville, Kentucky, the second son of Charles Albert and Lydia Browning, and the nephew of baseball star Pete Browning. As a young boy, he put on amateur plays in his backyard. He was fascinated by the circus and carnival life, and at the age of 16 he ran away from his well-to-do family to become a performer.

Changing his name to "Tod", he traveled extensively with sideshows, carnivals, and circuses. His jobs included working as a talker (barker, as the term is also known, is not correct) for the Wild Man of Borneo, performing a live burial act in which he was billed as "The Living Corpse", and performing as a clown with the Ringling Brothers Circus. He would draw on this experience as inspiration for some of his film work.

He performed in vaudeville as an actor, magician and dancer. He appeared in the Mutt and Jeff and The Lizard and the Coon acts, and in a blackface act titled The Wheel of Mirth alongside comedian Charles Murray.

Answers with Elizabeth Banks?

You've been married for over a decade. Do you even remember the last time you had a walk of shame?

My husband and I went to some big party in New York one night, and we just had one of those nights where we went home and the sun was coming up. And I believe that it was that moment where we were like, We need to have children, because this is crazy; we're too old for this. The shame was all about just feeling that we knew better than to do that, and it still happened anyway.

James Dean
Actors & Actresses

How is James Dean being cast in a movie in 2019?

The unstoppable force of ambitious directors and CGI.

James Dean, the Hollywood heartthrob who died in a car crash in 1955, will be digitally revived for the film Finding Jack, directed by Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh. The film will focus on "the existence and abandonment of more than 10,000 military dogs at the end of the Vietnam War," and it’s set to premiere on Veterans Day 2020, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

CGI teams will recreate Dean using historical footage and photographs; another actor will provide the character’s voice. The filmmakers don't seem to see anything creepy about this. Here’s a (pretty unbelievable) quote from Ernst:

"We searched high and low for the perfect character to portray the role of Rogan, which has some extreme complex character arcs, and after months of research, we decided on James Dean."

While Dean’s family granted the directors permission to use his image, the public reaction to this news has been far from positive. Check out this scathing tweet from Chris Evans:

I’m sure he’d be thrilled ?

This is awful.

Maybe we can get a computer to paint us a new Picasso. Or write a couple new John Lennon tunes.

The complete lack of understanding here is shameful. https://t.co/hkwXyTR4pu

A film, also called a movie, motion picture, theatrical film or photoplay, is a series of still images which, when shown on a screen, creates the illusion of moving images due to the phiphenomenon.

A film is created by photography actual scenes with a motion picturecamera; by photographing drawings or miniature models using traditional animation techniques; by means of CGI and computeranimation; or by a combination of some or all of these techniques and other visualeffects.

The word "cinema", short for cinematography, is often used to refer to the industry of films and filmmaking or to the art of filmmaking itself. The contemporary definition of cinema is the art of simulating experiences to communicate ideas, stories, perceptions, feelings, beauty or atmosphere by the means of recorded or programmed moving images along with other sensory stimulations.

In film or television a common way to show an narrative point of view is to film from?

a good way to show a narrative point of view is to have the character with the point of view as the sole subject in the shot that explains or suggests the point of view. (have the camera focused on the character) another way is to get the audience on the persons side so that they find it easier to understand the point of view. really, you cant define one single way to do anything in film and most of these techniques are defined in pre-production. but there are many exemplary techniques used by directors that you can pick up on through thorough analysis of their movies.
