Do you think people will see the show and suddenly realize, "Hey! I have a wonderful spouse who I'm not paying enough attention to. This could happen to me!"? I don't know. I find it a little scary in that way. I do! I find it's kind of a reminder of that. I've been cheated on before but if I'm gonna be perfectly honest, I don't think that the relationship was in such great shape. One time that someone cheated on me, I felt like I had really been doing my best, and that was just really on them. But sometimes, it's really like "is it really a surprise?" "Did I really value it, or was I taking the relationship for granted?" And sometimes it was the latter.

What's next for you in 2015? Hopefully sharing the film and speaking to communities across the country about The PeaceKeeper Movement. I am also very excited to begin development on my next passion project, a film focused on a transgendered story, as well as prepping to direct a Detroit-based fantasy film that pits two teenagers against an ancient force that is terrorizing their city (Nain Rouge).

You've been a busy guy in 2014. What can Danny Huston fans expect from you in 2015? Well, I am preparing to get back in the saddle and direct again...that's how I started. I'm about to make a film in Mexico, set in Tijuana, a dusty tale with a collection of rather seedy characters. I'm also preparing a small film in the UK based on a book by a close friend.

What is a pivotal scene?

User Avatar
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.

What does a documentary mean to you personally? I think now-a-days a documentary can be anything. When I was younger, I saw a documentary called Cane Toads and it was this hilarious doc about how these Cane Toads were brought in to solve an over population of the cane beetle in Australia. What happened was the cane toads started replicating at such a fast rate that little girls started adopting them as pets, as did others. They started growing to this enormous size and they started taking over. It was this human introduced element to the area that ended up not solving the problem at all and created a whole other problem. The beetle was infiltrating sugar cane so someone got this idea from another country but instead they over multiplied and became this whole disaster problem on their own. So, it was so funny and so strange because I didn't know documentaries could be like that. It really affected me because I was like "Wow vérité is great and vérité is what makes great documentaries but you can do reenactments, you can follow crazy people around, you can tell stories that I would have never known about, like the Cane Toad story." ...And that opened up a whole world to me. I feel like documentaries now can be about anything. We are seeing so many inventive documentaries especially in the last 5 years.

Who is browning the filmmaker?

User Avatar
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.

Is there a new place you discovered while shooting in downtown L.A. that you'd recommend? Church & State has a honey lavender goat cheese spread that, like, made my life on this movie. I didn't eat a lot on this movie, to be honest with you. You've seen the dress now, so you saw what I was up against, and also, I had to be in my underwear next to James Marsden. So I worked out a lot and dieted, so I really treated myself to this honey lavender goat cheese.
Asked by Nash Towne in Filmmaking, James Dean, Actors & Actresses

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

User Avatar
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— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) November 6, 2019

What is the cinema films?

User Avatar
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. This optical illusion causes the audience to perceive continuous motion between separate objects viewed rapidly in succession. The process of filmmaking is both an art and an industry. 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.
