0


Built on five lots, the site includes several buildings including a sound stage, production offices, dressing rooms, laundromat, landscape track, loading docks and multi-storey parking.

Nearby, NextDC is building a data center complex on a Pacific Highway site that the company purchased for $ 81.8 million in 2018.

Next door, Keppel DC operates the Gore Hill data center and has a second project underway with completion slated for 2022.

Other owners in the area include Ausgrid, Dexus, Telstra, and Mirvac.

Data center operators should be interested in the site, which is sold by agents of Knight Frank, Scott Timbrell and Angus Klem.

“It’s not often that a site of this size in such a prime location would go up for sale, so we anticipate significant buyer interest,” said Mr. Timbrell, National Head of Investment Sales at Knight Frank. .

“We believe that one of the most attractive uses of the site would be as a data center, but it also has great industrial potential,” added Mr. Klem, manager of industrial investments, NSW, at Knight Frank.

An ABC spokesperson said the decision to sell Lanceley Place was made following a review of the property portfolio in 2020.

“The settlement will not take place until at least December 2022 and the ABC will continue to manage and use the site until then,” the spokesperson said.

“The funds from the sale of Lanceley Place will be directed towards the development of new premises in Parramatta. “

The site is zoned Industrial General and will be sold through an expression of interest campaign.

Inside the documentary production company behind “Devenir Cousteau”

0


It’s been just over two years since the documentary power couple – director Liz Garbus and producer / financier Dan Cogan – launched Story Syndicate, and the production company already has four Oscar contests this season. rewards.

In addition to producing Garbus’s documentary “Becoming Cousteau” for National Geographic, which hits theaters today, Story Syndicate is also behind three other Oscar-qualified documentaries: “Fauci” (National Geographic) by John Hoffman and Janet Tobias, “Convergence: d’Orlando von Einsiedel: Courage in a Crisis” (Netflix) and “Mayor Pete” by Jesse Moss (Amazon). The company also produced “Nuclear Family” by Ry Russo-Young, a series three-part HBO story about lesbian mothers facing paternity lawsuits; and “Britney vs. Spears” by Erin Lee Carr, a Netflix title investigating Britney Spears guardianship.

Garbus and Cogan launched the Brooklyn-based production company in June 2019 with just three projects in the works: “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” from HBO, “All In: The Fight for Democracy” from Amazon and three episodes. from “The Files of Innocence. (Garbus has been involved as a director in every project.) While the production center initially supported Garbus-based projects, the goal has always been to make Story Syndicate a base for a wide range of filmmakers; Story Syndicate has 17 projects in production and six in development paying off in 2021.

Both of their careers were flourishing when they started Story Syndicate: Garbus – an Emmy-winning director and two-time Oscar nominee – had just completed a real HBO crime docusery titled “Who Killed Garrett Phillips” and was working on his first story “Lost Girls” project for Netflix. Cogan, meanwhile, was in his 13th year as executive director of Impact Partners, a documentary film finance company where he continues to have an advisory role. In 2018, he won an Oscar for producing Netflix’s doping documentary “Icarus”.

While Cogan admits he was looking for “a change,” Story Syndicate was primarily born out of a drastic change he saw taking place in the documentation market.

“I was careful that streamers were buying less and less movies and instead making (their own) docs and docuseries,” says Cogan, who is co-chairman with his wife. “So it seemed clear to me that the future was going to lie in making movies and series for streamers rather than making them and independently funding them and selling them, which I was doing at Impact.”

For his part, Garbus wanted to forge a career in narrative cinema while maintaining his roots in the documentary space.

“When you make a scripted movie, you are completely emptied of the universe,” Garbus explains. “As a director, I wanted to be able to do that, but my heart and my career are in documentaries. So I was like, “How do you deal with the two? “

The answer, in fact, was right in front of her.

“I wanted to be able to have a partner who, if I was doing a scripted movie, was still at a high enough level that he could talk about other things I might want to do, or if there was a project that I was. producing, but not directing, they would be able to oversee that at a high level which I knew would satisfy the managers, “Garbus said.” So I had meetings with various producers and then I don’t remember of the exact moment, where I was like “Wait a second. Why don’t Dan and I do this together?” “

1996-98 AccuSoft Inc., OK

National Geographic Executive Vice President of Scripted Content and Documentaries Carolyn Bernstein worked with Garbus and Cogan on “Becoming Cousteau” and “Fauci.” While “Cousteau” was commissioned by Nat Geo, Bernstein won a bidding war for “Fauci”.

Bernstein considers “Fauci”, a film about infectious disease specialist Dr Anthony Fauci, a perfect “fit for the brand”, but also wanted to work with the Story Syndicate again.

“On ‘Fauci’ and ‘Devenir Cousteau’, and really on every doc I’ve worked on so far, there’s a lot of problem solving,” Bernstein says. “There are tricky situations that come up, and Dan really is a perfect partner in those cases because he’s good at solving the problem and finding a solution. He is quite unperturbed.

The company has a creative infrastructure with a staff of 25, including three in-house producers – Kate Barry, Nell Constantinople and Jack Youngelson – and chief creative officer Jon Bardin. Under the same roof are post-production facilities. Seventy-five percent of Story Syndicate’s content is generated in-house and then transferred to various platforms, which then fund production.

Russo-Young, a freelance narrative director, met three producers before teaming up with Story Syndicate at the start of “Nuclear Family,” his first docu.

“I was scared at first because I didn’t know anything about financing documentaries and I felt like it was going to be very difficult,” says Russo-Young. “But it ended up happening very, very quickly, I think, in large part because Dan knew the right people. The thing about Dan is that he’s both incredibly creative and incredibly strategic, and that’s a really rare combination to find in a producer.

Working with great streamers means working alongside companies, which is why, in part, Cogan says we live in the age of the documentary instead of the golden age of the documentary.

“A lot of funded films are funded by platforms and these platforms have their own goals and algorithms that they pay attention to,” he says. “So as a producer what you have to do is balance the things that you believe in and that you think are really important that you want to do and the things that can be commercial in that environment.

“How do you find this place on the Venn diagram between what’s great and innovative and powerful and important and speaks to the world in a crucial way and what can fit into the business landscape? “

Sometimes, he continues, “that means you don’t make films for platforms, you make them independently.”

Ongoing projects include: “Number One on Apple TV Plus’s Call Sheet: Black Women Leaders in Hollywood” and “Number One on the Call Sheet: Black Men in Hollywood” on Achievements Blacks in the Film Industry, Maxim Pozdorovkin’s anti-Semitism feature film “The Conspiracy” and a Netflix documentary on GameStop’s stock market fluctuation on a roller coaster caused by a group of retail traders on Reddit.

Story Syndicate is developing non-fiction and fictional titles, but the couple insist the corporate identity “will always be found in true stories.”

“We understand how to tell these stories in an entertaining, dramatic, character-driven way that says something about the world we live in and makes sense,” says Cogan.

As to whether Story Syndicate will become the next production house to source from a private equity firm or streamer, the answer is emphatically no – for now anyway.

“Liz and I control what we make,” Cogan explains. “No one can tell us to do anything, and no one can tell us not to do anything. And that’s how I like it.

German Virtual Production Studio-xR uses GLP S350 Wash for immersive productions – rAVe [PUBS]

German Virtual Production Studio-xR uses GLP S350 Wash for immersive productions – rAVe [PUBS]


Since the end of 2020, PRG, with its subsidiary Cinegate, has been managing the Virtual Production Studio-xR in Hamburg, a facility specializing in digital events of all kinds. On 360 m² of pure studio space, corporate events, as well as film and video shoots, commercials and live concerts (eg Wacken World Wide), can be carried out in a virtual environment. In order to be able to react quickly and flexibly to the complex demands of virtual productions, PRG turned to GLP’s 40 Print S350 Wash.

Matthias Allhoff, Head of Lighting Technologies at PRG, explains: “While lighting and cameras are mostly coordinated in traditional productions, the demands of virtual productions are more complex because we have to conform to an environment at all times. constantly evolving virtual. This is why the GLP S350 Wash proved itself so quickly as a fast-reacting and remotely controllable moving head.

To create a feeling of perfect immersion, PRG’s Virtual Production Studio-xR not only features LED walls, but also LED floors and ceilings. With lots of space, content, and therefore virtual rooms, change frequently, quickly and dramatically throughout the day. Beyond that, there are also virtual extensions beyond the video areas.

“Under these conditions, we are faced with the challenge of coordinating all LED surfaces, cameras, virtual sets and lighting. It becomes especially exciting when there is a spatial change in position or other changes in spatial conditions. Then the guide light and the tail light have to follow suit quickly, ”explains Allhoff. “And that’s exactly what works incredibly well with the GLP S350 Wash.

The S350 Wash print, with its 350 watt white light LED motor, CRI above 90 and TM-30 and TLCI values 95+, provides exceptional light quality and is compatible with cameras. Its optical system, with a front Fresnel lens, allows a zoom of 8 to 50 °. In each corner of the zoom box, there is access to a full-fledged framing system with four shutter blades. The opening slide positions, which can be combined in any way, as well as the ability to rotate the entire module 90 °, allow precise control of the beam. The dichroic CMY color mixing system also opens up a large color space and works extremely smoothly. This is supported by a fixed color wheel with 10 slots. With the additional CTC function, a range can be continuously adjusted between 2500 and 8000 Kelvin.

In the Virtual Production Studio, the fact that the S350 Wash has been further developed for live use on stage becomes an advantage. “The lighting typically used in virtual studios has been optimized for other conditions. We tested a lot [of products] early on and came to the conclusion that the Impression S350 Wash motorized floodlights were the best solution in terms of the combination of responsiveness and light quality we were looking for, ”Allhoff continues.

Several scenes and positions can be perfectly illuminated during programming. Small fixes can be made to repeats right on the desktop without having to touch devices manually. Zoom, aperture slider and color temperature can be adjusted from scene to scene at lightning speed.

“Events have changed radically since last year. We have adapted to this and created flexible studio solutions for high quality digital and virtual productions, ”concludes Allhoff. “The constantly changing conditions of these productions have opened the door wide to creative thinking and design. Of course, this also applies to lighting.

“With the S350 Wash printing we have found a solution that perfectly matches the new requirements. With a relatively manageable number of mobile projectors, a multitude of possibilities can be quickly and easily created in virtual productions. And despite all the flexibility of using these motorized projectors, here we have a quality of light that is in no way inferior to the studio projectors generally used.

“Decisions on how to present the replay improvement have been well prepared, but require the immediate reaction of the production team in the truck to be executed when needed,” Placey explained. “If anyone hesitates, the moment may be lost; however of [MNF replay producer] kyle brown requesting the addition of the virtual plan, to [MNF producer] Phil Dean include it in its replay sequences, and [MNF director] Jimmy platt direction [replay system operator] Luc Boden to frame the replay video and roll, the team was more than ready for now.

Brown, who is at the forefront of all MNF reruns, knew as soon as Allen took off and was close to the first down, this would be a significant opportunity for our production team.

“When the play ended, knowing the issues and the situation, Boden instantly asked ‘Do we want to use the virtual airplane?’ as I prepared to go through the assortment of reruns, ”recalls Brown about 12 hours after the start of the drama. “It was exactly the situation we had in mind when we incorporated the technology and instantly I felt it would be right. I gave my approval and then we were on the same page, knowing we only had a few moments to bring the technology to life.

The process may only take 20-40 seconds to go from design to screen, but it’s layered and detailed. Boden first works his magic, adding the first virtual marker as well as the virtual shot to the replay, then the replay is reviewed by Brown.

“My first thought when I saw this, or any rerun, does that add to the broadcast?” Are the fans taking advantage of it? You never want to use technology just to use it. In this case, when I saw what Luke sent, I was convinced, but Dean makes the last call. All the credit to him who entrusts us and who also has great instincts to put it on the air. “

Sony has reportedly acquired Bad Wolf, the production company that will produce Doctor Who when Russell T Davies returns as showrunner in 2023.

Sony would acquire Bad Wolf, the production company that will produce Doctor Who when Russell T Davies returns as showrunner in 2023. Bad Wolf was founded in 2015 and has since produced series such as Its dark materials alongside New Line Productions for HBO and the BBC. The company is preparing to produce Doctor Who from its 14th season.

Bad Wolf was founded by Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter, who were tasked alongside Davies to revive Doctor Who in 2005 after its 16-year hiatus following the 26th season of the original series. The company, whose name is based on a script from Davies’ era in the series, has been responsible for productions such as A discovery of witches and Its dark materials, with the company currently working on Season 3. The company has been announced as co-producing the long-running British sci-fi series alongside the BBC starting its 14th season in 2023 and beyond, alongside the reveal that Davies would return as a showrunner. However, it was recently rumored that the company could see a major change that could affect Doctor Whothe future.

As reported by Stream now (Going through RadioTimes), Sony Pictures is reportedly in the process of acquiring the production company following a £ 60million deal. The acquisition would allow Sony to become a majority shareholder of the company alongside current minority shareholders, Access Entertainment and HBO. It is also said in the story that filming for Davies ‘New Era will begin in 2022, starting with the series’ 60th anniversary special.


This is not the first time Bad Wolf has worked with larger US-based companies, as the company signed an initial agreement with HBO in 2015. HBO is responsible for distribution. Its dark materials outside the UK, where the broadcast is handled by the BBC itself on TV and through its IPlayer service. Sony has also already shown interest in Doctor Who, with Sony Pictures revealed to have had talks with the BBC to produce a Doctor Who film in leaked emails from the 2015 Sony Pictures hacks.

Sony’s reported interest comes at an interesting time for the longtime show, because while Davies’ return has been warmly accepted by fans, news of Bad Wolf’s involvement has seen a major departure from the story of the show’s production. Production of the series has traditionally been done in-house by the BBC, with the exception of the 1996 TV movie between Universal Pictures, Fox and the broadcaster. a studio outside of the BBC worked on the series. With Sony now acquiring Bad Wolf and presumably involved in some aspect of Doctor Who, this is a time of major change for the show in an unknown new era.

KEO FIlms, the company co-founded by River Cottage chef Hugh Fearnley, 56, closed its doors this summer with huge debts.

From Survival to Prosperity: As part of the successful transformation of the Brandfuel production team

0


Brandfuel won the ‘Production Team of the Year’ award at the Drum Awards for Agency Business in 2021, as well as the new ‘Best Response to Change’ category. Here, the team behind the winning entry explains how they transformed their offering to thrive despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over the past year, Brandfuel has adapted to working in a pandemic, but no team has been more on the front lines of change than the production department. From a team of eleven people, rooted in the delivery of physical events – construction of stage sets and large-scale exhibition stands – it now includes eight experts in online events, virtual platforms and a multitude of new systems software and production techniques.

When they were once just managers – bringing in specialists to provide audio, video, camera and other expertise – they are now platform builders, vision mixers, audio technicians and encoders. of flow, managing all the technical aspects of the events.

“Skills improvement”

Brandfuel has invested £ 10,000 in hardware and software to secure its future. Production quickly began to master it. Using skills such as coding, web design, videography, motion graphics, computing and networking, production has “played” on internal R&D projects to fine-tune new software and digital platforms.

They turned the Brandfuel storage facility into Fuelstudios – creating our broadcast studio, two green screen studios, and a main control room – so they could test techniques, equipment and operators during meeting broadcasts. internal company on Fuel TV. All 14 television-quality episodes were scripted, designed and produced by staff. Skills learned included vision mixing, pressure cookers and remote presentation, filming, sound engineering, management and encoding of green screen and XR scenes. One green screen project successfully replicated President Obama’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, which took place in two locations, but appeared to be in only one.

They invited suppliers and freelancers with broadcast experience to pass on their knowledge of production, visual mixing and sound engineering, and attended countless product demonstrations as new software was developed. .

Agile response

Within eight weeks of the start of the pandemic, Production was ready to provide customers with a high-quality virtual event experience.

When working with remote presenters, they quickly switched from video conferencing tools like Zoom Webinar to vMix and QuickLinks to achieve the highest quality results. The speed of their conversion to digital delivery was such that Brandfuel went from a free vision mixer license to five paid vMix licenses in a matter of weeks.

The team continues to evaluate the platforms, over 40 to date, to understand features as they are added and to ensure that the platforms that customers choose for specific events are appropriate. to their goal. Otherwise, they bridge the gap.

When the platform chosen by a long-time financial client was clearly not suited to host an annual global summit, director Tom Robinson had just ten days to rebuild all of his back-streaming and video elements. end to ensure it was robust enough to deliver the quality the customer was expecting.

On another occasion, Brandfuel was working on Hopin on a project for Slack that they wanted to deliver in three languages; two weeks before the deadline, Hopin released new multilingual features, so production quickly learned how they worked.

Backup plans

As their experience developed, Production tried to create backup systems at all levels of delivery; for example, Brandfuel now uses Wirecast software in tandem with vMix to overcome internet connectivity disruptions in seconds, not minutes. By using pre-recordings or sending quad sim mobile uplinks to speakers to improve internet stability, Production has learned to minimize risk to customers.

Safety first

At the heart of the production team’s work has been the emphasis on health and safety. First of all, they safely deconstructed our office and made sure everyone had equipment for remote working. They then learned how to safely host virtual events, maintaining Covid disinfection protocols, for example, when sending audio and video kits to speakers around the world. At the start of the hybrid events, production ensured that the studios could be set up and managed under the constraints of Covid. Now that office work is gradually returning, production is rewriting and applying protocols to keep safety at the forefront of Brandfuel’s work.

Our achievements

Brandfuel has organized 60 virtual events on 18 digital platforms, with which Production has become an expert, integrating more than 1,000 speakers around the world. We are continually driven by our clients to go even further, using innovation and creativity to deliver the wow factor that makes events stand out. We have produced awards ceremonies, barbecue masterclasses, lectures, virtual exhibition booths, dinners and huge charity events.

Innovative solutions

After understanding the limitations of other platforms, Production developed Fuelstudios Air, which offers more potential for bespoke designs and includes special features such as “audio watermarking”.

We have used it for seven virtual events, including the Building Societies Association, IPA, and Advertising Association. Their agenda-setting RESET 2021 conference and virtual showroom, which included nine bespoke interactive 3D virtual sponsor booths, gathered more than 800 delegates. The accompanying microsite received 3,300 views.

We are also working with new technologies for events such as volumetric video, binaural sound, facial motion capture, virtual XR scenes and augmented reality.

Personal development

In addition to rebuilding the backend of a platform for a customer in ten days and leading the creation of our Fuelstudios Air platform, Tom is now leading the development of a huge platform for a mainstay customer in order to organize two major global events, one of which will have up to 20,000 registrants online.

Digital production has become so fundamental to Brandfuel that Tom has been promoted to production manager and digital manager, to help us deliver the increasingly complex virtual projects that we believe are here to stay.

Effective results

One of our biggest accomplishments was the first virtual BGC Charity Day, held to commemorate over 650 of their colleagues who were killed on September 11. We had worked with BGC Partners for 14 years, but eight days before the annual event they decided to go virtual.

With banking IT notoriously blocked, especially when it comes to firewalls, we needed innovative solutions to do justice to this huge fundraiser. Previously, celebrities would come to BGC’s offices in Canary Wharf to make phone calls with BGC Partners brokers and clients, sealing huge deals.

This time, our production team came up with a virtual solution that connected 21 BGC clients to 18 celebrities around the world via videoconference at scheduled times, capturing interviews and producing a live microsite that was broadcast to BGC employees throughout the world. international scale.

The celebrity-client calls have worked wonderfully. BGC Partners welcomed the new privacy of face-to-face calls. Not only did Charity Day raise $ 10 million in one day like in previous years, it also won the award for best fundraiser for a digital event.

Testimonials

“Brandfuel has embarked on a journey of immense change. What we have accomplished over the past 12 months has been monumental. Virtual has become our daily bread and we organize virtual events every week. We should all be proud of this because our initial core work in R&D, building our own platform, testing new technology and not being afraid to try things got us where we are. are today. Tom Robinson, Production Manager and Digital Manager at Brandfuel

“The working relationship with Production has never been as close as it is today. As project managers, the past 16 months have challenged us to the unthinkable with almost everything going virtual. It took away a lot of our control over a project as we relied a lot on technology to make the event a success.

“Having a reliable pair of hands in the back-end of the pre-recordings, while I’m in the front-end to make sure things are running smoothly on the client side, reinstated the feeling of being and” family on site ”. It really takes a well-rounded team from both sides and from all angles, which wouldn’t be complete without the Brandfuel production team. Alice Barry, Project and Events Coordinator

ITV Red Production Company, Studiocanal ‘No Return’ Danny Brocklehurst

0


Since they were given the lead, the great authors of modern television have been its writers. Thus, “No Return” can be taken in different ways. This is an ITV series from Red Production Company, which drew tremendous heat producing “It’s a Sin” and “Years and Years” by Russell T. Davies.

It is sold by Studiocanal, the largest film and television production and distribution center in Europe which owns Red Production Company and is behind the “Paddington” franchise, several successful thrillers by Liam Neeson and the upcoming western. “Django”.

In production since July, it is billed as a gripping event drama, starring BAFTA-winning actress Sheridan Smith (“Mrs Biggs”).

But it’s also the latest from Danny Brocklehurst, now one of the UK’s most prominent screenwriters.

Few have its range or its pedigree. After learning his trade from two of Britain’s greatest working class TV voices, Paul Abbott (“Shameless”) and Jimmy McGovern (“The Street”, “Accused”), he wrote half of “The Five “and” Safe “by Harlan Coben. ”, Which wrapped up the 2018 Canneseries. Brocklehurst has now come out on top, most notably with BBC One’s miniseries“ Come Home ”and“ Brassic, ”Sky’s biggest comedy in recent years, kicking off season three on October 6.

“No Return” would appear to be a partial return to Harlan Coben mode, a facade of a suddenly shattered perfect life revealing that people were not what they appeared to be.

In this case, Kathy (Smith) leads her family on a seemingly idyllic all-inclusive vacation to Turkey, only to have her world fall apart when her son Noah is arrested after attending a local beach party. Kathy and her husband Martin (Michael Jibson) must navigate an expensive and foreign legal system as their vacation turns into hell.

Directed by John Alexander (“Grace”, “Belgravia”) and produced by Farah Abushwesha (“The Singapore Grip”, “The ABC Murders”), “No Return” also brings Brocklehurst back to one of his favorite themes, family , including modern pressures that he expertly deciphered in “Come Home”. Variety spoke to him as he approached Mipcom where Studiocanal will present the series to buyers:

I suspect you are now in a position where you could write about quite a bit of the world. What was your main interest in creating “No Return”?

I wanted to work on a great family drama with a real engine at its heart. Noah’s arrest takes a huge toll on both families, exposing their secrets, things that have been rotting for years, questions about their son and themselves. There is also the subtle but important theme of consent which seems quite topical now.

“No Return” has some Harlan Coben vibes: Happiness, or at least its facade, suddenly shattered, revealing secrets. But maybe this is a superficial comparison?

Harlan Coben’s thrillers are a different beast, the TV equivalent of a page turner. “No Return” has a slightly different tone, there’s still some sort of criminal element, hope it’s real quick and people want to know what’s going on, and we end every episode on a big hook. . But it relies more on the idea of ​​family. It’s a very universal story – and I don’t say that about everything I write. It’s a family matter. It’s about love. This is your own protection. And tensions created in extreme situations.

On aAll-inclusive vacations hardly interact with the local culture, let alone the authorities. In “No Return”, it’s the opposite….

One of the things that interested me is that most of us go on a package holiday or a sun and beach vacation where you basically go to one country, live in a tourist bubble for a while. week or two, then fly. You could go to some really interesting places – the Dominican Republic, Croatia or in this case Turkey, but you would certainly never think about what would happen if you fell foul of this country’s legal system which can be very different. from yours. In “No Return” this happens.

Did you do a lot of research for the show, and do you do a lot of research in general?

On my more “serious” dramas, yes. When I wrote “Come Home,” about a mother leaving her family and what it meant for the father, I looked at what it meant in terms of child support and other considerations. On “No Return”, I had to do a lot of research on the [Turkish] legal system, talking to a lot of people. We want to do it right. The last thing we wanted was for people to say, “It’s not really like that.” It was a little intimidating at first. But once I got into it, I really enjoyed it.

Do you see yourself as an author? In other words, what do you think you bring to “No Return” as a writer?

If you think of someone like, say, Jimmy McGovern, he’s a great guy and a good man, and a Jimmy McGovern drama has a certain imprint on it. I like to do quite different genres, flex different muscles. When I write a dramatic comedy I try to be funny, poignant sometimes, but basically I have fun. I sometimes do all the thrillers. And then things like “No Return”, “Exile” and “Come Home”, which have a little more character. But if you look at the work I’ve done, there are probably themes I come back to, things I wanted to say about the world, that left my mark on them.

Could you name one?

I did a whole series, “Ordinary Lies”, about ordinary people placed in exceptional circumstances where their life suddenly takes a pretty extreme turn that they have to face. Obviously, this is drama to a degree. But I have written a lot over the years about the ordinary person taken to extremes by circumstances, perhaps of their own making, perhaps external. It’s a theme that fascinates me. The more you write about ordinary, recognizable people, the more questions the audience can ask about their own lives. Paul [Abbott], Russel [T Davies] and Jimmy [McGovern] all of them do it very well, with a sort of realistic feel that appeals to audiences.

And do you plan to pay special attention to this theme?

I was kind of drawn to the industry by Paul Abbott and worked with him for many years – on “Clocking Off” and “Shameless”. One of the things he used to say was, something like, that Frieda, a machinist in the factory, there’s no reason why this person shouldn’t have a brain that’s interested in other things. You don’t have to write characters like cliché. Real people are very surprising. You just have to go out into the real world and chat with someone. And you know, I wasn’t expecting it.

Who knows what the future of ‘Housewives’ will be? Hope this is a long positive. I think casting is extremely important for these shows and I saw recently that New York City has huge casting coverage for their shows. So, I wish them all the best with this.

Students create production company in times of pandemic

4085 Productions was founded by four students, Kaleb Manske, Jordan Rice, Alex Nimrod and Maximus Jenkins, who shared an apartment with Lorenzo during the pandemic and their sophomore year. (Photo courtesy of 4085 Productions)

What do you get when you bring together a musical theater fan, longtime soccer player, fitness enthusiast, and extreme sports traveler in an apartment building outside of USC’s campus? A production company.

When the pandemic first struck, students had to adjust to a new way of learning. For classes rooted in lectures and exams, this transition seemed easier. Students in more artistic and creative fields, however, faced unprecedented challenges.

For Kaleb Manske, a second-year major in psychology and film and television production, he knew he wanted to move to Los Angeles in the spring of 2021. He was looking for artistic roommates, especially in music or film.

He happened to find two actors from Chicago – Jordan Rice and Alex Nimrod, both in their second year majoring in theater with a specialization in performance. Actors need opportunities to act, and filmmakers need opportunities to film. Lorenzo’s apartment no. 4085 was therefore like bringing honey to the bees.

One night they met Maximus Jenkins, a sophomore specializing in narrative studies and cognitive science, and after an informal chat while hanging out later, the three roommates said, “Do you want to make movies with us? ” to Jenkins; 4085 Productions had its training wheels.

Making movies during a global pandemic would seem like rocket science to many, but for these four, who still approach all of their work with an extreme passion for the craft and a willingness to do absolutely anything, the constraints of the viruses have become a gift.

“It was essentially [Kaleb’s] homework to make films for this class, ”said Alex Nimrod. “It was that sort of thing where Kaleb had a week or two to make a movie, but one of the settings was you can only work with whoever you live with and you can’t leave your space. of life.”

Clearly, the coronavirus has placed restrictions on students at SCA, but with his roommates Rice and Nimrod, Manske had his winning cast right on the living room couch.

“So people come to this film festival, play in these movies with their parents or in their house, because it’s COVID,” Nimrod said. “Yet we’re in an apartment in LA with two actors who are literally dying to act and work, and so it became something that we were throwing 20 hours a week because we don’t do anything, in these movies. trying to make them as good as possible. And then when we presented them to the class, I mean, they got good answers. “

From a few views to today in the hundreds, 4085 has been able to get the training wheels off the ground and move exponentially towards building the corporate foundation of their business. Whether it’s delegating more defined roles within the management team, hiring more students, film festivals and grant applications, 4085 Productions is ready to assert itself. like the next big thing in Hollywood.

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve experienced a movie before,” Manske said. “If you’re just interested in being on set and watching what happens, if you want to be a writer and you’ve never written a screenplay before, that’s what we’re trying to do with this expansion.”

Their upcoming short, “Ouch,” which will be released October 8 on 4085’s YouTube channel, is a story that touches on concepts such as addiction, mental health, and other strongly stigmatized issues not only in the LA community. but also in communities all over the world.

All proceeds from fundraising related to this project will go to To Write Love On Her Arms, a nonprofit organization that aims to provide hope and resources to those struggling with depression, addiction, l self-harm and suicide.

4085’s role doesn’t end there – despite little to no funding – for every view “Ouch” gets in the first 24 hours, 4085 will match that to $ 1 and donate it entirely to TWLOHA.

So what’s next for 4085 Productions? Manske, Nimrod, Rice and Jenkins have the next seasons booked and in pre-production. Ideally, they would like to bring 4085 to the bigger stage and mirror successful production companies such as A24 while developing their own niche or lack thereof.

“I think what’s really cool about being a new production company is that we’re not tied to any image… our first movie was an action movie, our second explored gender identity. , then our third was doing human relations, ”Rice said. “These things don’t have that underlying ‘We make this type of movie’ and that’s what we love – that we tell these meaningful stories in any way we do, but the thing that ties them together, it’s that these are meaningful stories that we think just need to be told.

The company aims to bring to light the stories of people who don’t feel able to work in the film industry, according to Manske. For these inexperienced people, 4085 Productions attempts to make a process as “huge” and “intimidating” as cinema inviting and meaningful.

Considering that this company is founded on friendship and an innate passion for filmmaking, it’s clear that 4085 Productions has over 4,085 days of diverse and creative storytelling in store for the future.

“This is a pivotal moment for 4085, and if this is the first time you’ve heard from us, it’s wonderful. We want you, ”Nimrod said.

Friends turn a disused shipping container near Bristol into a music production studio

An abandoned shipping container in South Gloucestershire has been turned into a music production studio.

The facility, known as Shipment Studios, was created by three friends after securing the land in April.

Liam Scapens, Jack Houston and Alfie Richardson started the business which they have now opened to the public in Winterbourne.

After initially having the idea of ​​launching a studio, the trio acquired a container at Avonmouth Docks.

Jack told Bristol Live: “The shipping container was used and on its last legs. It was about to be scrapped.

“There were even holes in it, so we had to hire a porter to fix it. It took intensive YouTube monitoring to help us learn the tricks to help us grow the studio, alongside months of planning.”

The Maersk shipping container has been completely transformed and divided into three sections.

Liam said it took four months of work between the three of them, alongside electricians and other laborers, to complete the project.

“We all work full time, so it was months of hard work pretty much every night to make sure we could finish it,” he explained.

Shipment Studios is home to a vocal recording studio, music production room, and DJ booth accessible through an online booking system.

The container itself was delivered in May and the space was finally opened in August.

The friends, who are all music producers themselves, alternate their shifts alongside their daily work to ensure that someone is always present when making reservations.

The equipment is state of the art, with new CDJ 3000 turntables available for hire.



The studio can be booked for £20 per hour

With Bristol having such a proud musical heritage, there are many recording studios across the city, but the one based inside a shipping container is certainly different.

The studio is located on Swan Lane in Winterbourne. More information about this can be found here.

Saudi content creators set up local production studio

DJEDDAH: You’ve heard of flips, twists, and turns underwater, but a new extreme water sport allows sports fans to do the same above the surface. It’s called the flyboard and it will take you to new heights.

Saudis flock to the newest and coolest new water sports activities. Invented in 2012 by French watercraft pilot Franky Zapata, the flyboard is a hydrovol device that uses propulsion to fly a board through the air to perform tricks and skills. With the right balance and thrust, the board allows users to get out of the water and fly, and a Saudi flyboard instructor can show you how.

Mussab Feemban, a certified flyboard instructor, has practiced the art of aquatic hoverboarding anywhere he can find a body of water deep enough to hold the board and large enough to hover over.

“Flyboarding is a new sport in the Kingdom; it’s very popular with people whether they want to try it out or just watch the show, ”Feemban told Arab News.

“Anyone can practice the sport in the presence of an instructor and of course safety equipment such as a helmet and a life jacket. It is one of the most fun and difficult water activities, ”he added.

Feemban discovered his passion for water sports in 2009 while riding a jet ski. He then discovered flyboarding in 2017, fell in love with it and took courses in Hurghada and Dubai, to become an official certified flyboard instructor in the United States.

“I was discovered 2 months ago by the Jeddah waterfront operator while posting my flyboard performance on social media, the operator contacted me and offered me the opportunity to be part of their activities and have been playing ever since, ”he said.

“I started flyboarding on the Jeddah seafront two months ago, and thank goodness it was a great participation. Over 300 people have tried it, including women and children who wanted to try it.

Feemban is active on social media, including TikTok, where he has amassed over 300,000 followers in just four months. “This is the biggest proof of the high demand for water sports,” he said.

Feemban pointed out that the flyboard requires agility, strength and patience, as it can take a while to find balance while hovering over water, but it is suitable for everyone.

The price for a half hour of flyboarding is 250 SR ($ 67).

“Flyboarding is considered a fun activity and you can do it for less than half an hour. No one can flyboard any longer because of the pressure on the knees. Yes, it burns calories and firms the body, however, it is not a substitute for regular sports activities like going to the gym.

Feemban has participated in such events as Saudi National Day celebrations at Jeddah waterfront and Sharqiyah, opening of Asir waterfront and many other exciting occasions.

“Flyboarding is an entertainment sport activity, and the Sports Ministry is focusing on Saudi Arabian youth to prepare for the Olympics and international sporting events.”

“Do you want to fly? We will make this happen, ”he added.

Production company CT turns Hartford into Harlem for new Hallmark movie

0


The list of films that have brought their sets to Connecticut over the past six months has also brought with them actors like Justin hartley, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Chastain and Maria menounos. While each movie’s cast varied as much as the network or streaming service it was created for, there’s a good chance a Connecticut production company helped bring them to life.

This is the case of “Christmas in Harlem», The latest Hallmark Christmas film shot in Hartford in production with Rocky Hill International Synthesis Cinema. The film and production company worked on projects like “Christmas diary”,“ Sand Dollar Cove ”,“ Call Jane ”and“ Taking the Reins ”, all of which were filmed at least in part in Connecticut for Netflix and Hallmark.

Flagship movie “Christmas in Harlem” shot in parts of Hartford, Connecticut on the weekend of September 18-19, 2021.

For producer and owner Andrew Gernhard, turning his home country into other locations for a movie is simple. For “Christmas in Harlem” – a name he says will likely change before its release – it was about finding similarities between the two places.

“We shot pretty much everything in the Hartford area,” he said. “We obviously looked at a lot of research and were able to find little bits of sections of Hartford and East Hartford that correspond to Harlem, and we recreated it all in Connecticut.”

Shooting the Hallmark Christmas movies in the summer adds an extra layer of cinematic magic needed to produce wintry effects in unusual weather.

“What we’re doing is we’re going to shoot a wide shot of a store, and we’ll put fake snow in it and our actors will interact there, but we’ll shoot really wide and then digitally chop down the tree. or we’ll add snow to the roof, “he said.” It’s just a matter of choosing your shots and knowing how to frame them and how to use the infographic to make it look like it’s there. ‘winter. “

According to Gernhard, it is possible to “shoot anything in Connecticut except a tropical island.” Even some of the most drastic locations can be recreated with some creativity in location and filming.

“We even made a desert here,” he said. “We were supposed to do a zombie movie in 2011, I believe, and the zombies came out of a desert, and we actually shot it in one of the mineral deposits. [in Clinton]… We just tilted the camera over the sand and the rocks and the zombies came out of it and it looks like the deserts of Nevada.

Gernhard’s Synthetic Cinema International has shot films statewide, from Hartford to New Haven, from Old Saybrook to Stonington. Gernhard estimates that they typically work on three to five films each year, but 2021 has 21 projects in Synthetic Cinema’s lineup, which he attributes to a demand for entertainment.

“I feel like it’s a question of timing and reputation,” he said. “It’s funny: Years and years ago, when I first heard that people were watching TV shows and movies on their phones, I was like, ‘No way’. I was most wrong about it… That’s what it is, there’s just an explosion of content.

With a lot of that “content explosion”Using Connecticut as a backdrop, Gernhard can think of two potential reasons why film projects are drawn to Connecticut.

“The number one reason is the tax credit – the networks love the tax creditThe second reason is the locations. We have a movie premiering this Saturday called ‘Taking the Reins’, it’s an equestrian movie for Hallmark – it stars Nikki DeLoach and Scott Porter – which we shot in Marlborough Connecticut at Meadowbrook Farm… and they just did it live [stream] on Facebook with the two stars, and they got rave reviews from Connecticut. “

“Celebs love being in Connecticut because it’s almost like a vacation, especially if they’re not from New England.”

Gernhard believes that this latest series of films shot in the state won’t end anytime soon.

“There are bigger projects coming up this year that are going to be pretty amazing that we’re going to start helping and that are going to be pretty fun for Connecticut,” he said. “I just think Connecticut looks great on camera.”

Get to know LA’s mysterious DJ and production team, Darko (Interview)

0


Written by: Tingting Wu and Stanley Sutton

With upcoming releases planned with Christina Milian, Tyga, and Waka Flocka Flame, Darko is the hot new squad you should watch out for. This Los Angeles-based production and DJ collective is newly formed, but not new to the music scene. They’re creating some of the hottest tracks for 2019 and beyond.

Darko has just released a new track with Destructo and Ice-T titled scammer. This song will pump you up for the week. Be sure to listen if you haven’t already.

During Miami Music Week, we chatted with a member of Team Darko and singer Mahkenna, the two of whom recently collaborated on a track called Ready for love. See below to learn more about Darko and their crazy upcoming projects.

DMNW: Darko: it’s one of the new names on the scene. For those who may not know you, how would you describe your style of music?

Darko: It’s dark, trap, big drops – that was the style I was looking for. I wanted to have a trap, dirty sound. How about Mahkenna?

Mahkenna: It’s almost an umbrella of its kind because it’s not necessarily just trap. He darko-trusts every artist Darko chooses. They could be rappers, singers, whatever. You put them on the track, and they all sound the same. Honestly, you have to hear it to understand.

DMNW: Looks like you get a lot of influence out of hip-hop. You use a lot of hip-hop in your songs, we noticed that …

Darko: The releases currently coming out: the record with Riff Raff, the one with Mozzi, the DMX rework, the record with Mahkenna-Ready for Love, which is not a rap record. I also dropped the record with Destructo, and Ice-T, the Hustler record – which is a G-House record.

The Hustler record came out of the wheelhouse of the Darko sound a bit. Ice-T is a friend of mine, and I thought it would be pretty cool to have him on a dope dance record!

Because of Ice-T’s style, G-House made sense. So when I started Destructo, I was like “Hey, do you want to come on this album with Ice?” He was like “yeah, absolutely!”.

The stuff we put out is dark, downtempo, trap stuff. We have a record that we’re releasing with Christina Milian in April. We also have a handful of remixes for that. It’s a little different. It’s probably the band’s most pop album. The main version of the song is, like, ’90s house!

DMNW: You mentioned Ice-T, and how you are a friend of his. Ice-T is a name that covers all genres of music. How is he in person?

Darko: Ice is one of the coolest guys; He is so smart! He spits out the craziest game. If you follow him on Twitter, his daily game posts, they’re all so awesome! They are all something that you can relate to, and it is like that. He’s super cool, super cool …

You have a conversation with him, and he puts you on the line.

Mahkenna: It’s like a motivational speaker, but he’s a rapper!

DMNW: We’re still in early 2019. What can fans expect from Darko this year, going forward?

Darko: Lots of music! Every month we have a new version that we release. In the summer, we’re going to start hitting the festival world, performing, and going out.

We are doing a residency in Los Angeles. We just had a club that has 3,000 people. We’ll do a monthly there and kick off something cool, like a Darko themed party.

Mahkenna: I was in the studio with Darko, I was just working on new stuff. So we have more to come. It’s called Ready for Love. It is available on all platforms. The next one we have …

Darko: This is called Ready for Cuddles. We’re doing the remix! It’s going to be called Ready for Cuddles …

Mahkenna: Noooooon, ready for love!

Darko: No, the remix! Alright, just kidding.

But yeah, we’ve got a bunch of cool stuff going on. More music to come with Mahkenna. Christina Milian’s record, one with Waka Flocka. I have one with Juicy J, which I just finished. It’s a handful of cool shit coming up!

Bachelor production team prepare to return to $ 4.4 million LA mansion ahead of Clayton Echard’s next season

Members of the BACHELOR team are moving into the $ 4.4 million LA mansion that was used before the pandemic ahead of the filming of the next season of Clayton Echard, exclusive photographs obtained by The Sun show.

While the most recent seasons of The Bachelorette were not filmed in the luxury home due to coronavirus restrictions, many memorable contestants from past seasons resided on the property during filming.

The house is called Villa de la Vina, known to fans simply as “The Mansion”.

The photographs show white tents set up on the property, crew members commuting to work, and even cranes as they transform the house for the upcoming season of the ABC dating show.

A source told The Sun that the production team must always follow strict Covid guidelines and that the network has a rescue complex if anyone falls ill on set.

The insider revealed, “They are starting production at the Bachelor Mansion and the intention is to film as much of the season as possible there.

“But there are a lot of hoops to go through with COVID protocols being in LA County.

“They have another rescue complex that they might end up using, they literally run into new obstacles every day. But yes, the current mansion setup is for Bachelor production.”

Reality Steve later confirmed the news by tweeting, “(BACHELOR FILMING UPDATE): Clayton’s season begins filming Tuesday night at the mansion.

“Also, I don’t know who the new host is yet, but now I hear it is NOT Wells.

“As reported last month, they are looking for a new permanent solo host.”

According to a previous listing on Airbnb, the gorgeous property sits on a beautiful 10-acre lot in Aguora Hills, California, located in the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu.

It has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, while the house is large enough to accommodate 13 people.

A luxurious swimming pool sits outside the 200-year-old Mediterranean-style renaissance house, while romantic arcades create a luxurious feel as cast members can enjoy picturesque views of the canyon, the mountains and a vineyard.

The final seasons of The Bachelorette were filmed at La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, Calif., And starred Clare Crawley, 39, and Tayshia Adams, 30.

It was the first time that the ABC show had not been filmed on “The Mansion” since 2012.

HISTORY OF THE HOUSE

Built in 2004, the house was last sold in 2010 for $ 1.7 million, but is now estimated to be worth around $ 4.4 million, according to Online Property websites.

Entrepreneur and Marshall Group chairman Marshall Haraden and his family are reportedly living in the Agoura Hills mansion when production is not filming.

It’s also available to rent for corporate functions and conferences, and has even been listed on Airbnb for $ 6,000 a night.

“They’re here 42 days, twice a year,” Marshall told Us Weekly in 2017 of the production crews taking over the house.

He continued, “Everything leaves, everything that is not attached, it is not part of the house.

“Curtains, televisions, pots and pans, clothes – everything goes out in a day.

“And then they take two weeks to edit it however they want, and they shoot for X days, then they spend two weeks putting it back on.”

Marshall added, “They’ll paint it any color they want, whether it’s male or female – Bachelor / Bachelorette, they’ll change the pattern.

“They paint it back and forth a lot, so [in total the show has given it] about 44 coats of paint. “

He revealed that the rose ceremonies were held in his den, which normally houses a pool table and bar, while the deliberation room is actually a bedroom when cameras are not rolling.

THE NEW BACHELOR

The bachelor picked Clayton as his final leader because he is a “good, healthy Midwestern man” in the aftermath of the show’s scandals, The Sun previously revealed.

Clayton, 28, from Missouri, from the small town of Eureka, was chosen as a “last minute” decision, a source close to the production told The Sun.

“It’s a big bet with Clayton because viewers don’t even know him yet, but he’s a Midwestern gentleman the audience will love,” the insider said.

‘IT WILL CHARM THE PUBLIC’

They continued, “He’s very naïve and pure about everything about TV, he’s not an aspiring influencer like a lot of these people.

“He will charm audiences at a time when the show is in desperate need of a healthier track.”

The source went on to explain that the unconventional choice of choosing a bachelor’s degree even before their Bachelorette season aired was due to planning.

Abstrakt Music production studio moves to new Bedford Zeitz building

0


NEW BEDFORD – For the past 40 years, the Zeitz building on the corner of North Sixth and Union in downtown New Bedford is home to the personal injury law firm of Hamel, Waxler, Allen & Collins. The new owners of the building have something very different in mind.

“I am truly delighted to take on the responsibility of taking this building to the next chapter,” said Mickey Monteiro, founder and owner of Abstrakt Music.

Local musical scene: 15 SouthCoast releases of 2019

Monteiro, artist, producer, DJ and engineer, is originally from New Bedford but has spent the past 15 years in Los Angeles touring with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, John Mayer and Jamie Foxx.

Mike Monteiro opens one of the many doors to the new Abstrakt Music studios, located in the old Hamel, Waxler, Allen & Collins building on Union Street in New Bedford.

“I kind of decided this was something I wanted to do for a long time. So I came back to try to make a difference here and in the city, ”he said.

“My energy is much more useful in New Bedford.”

An opportunity for local musical artists

Founded in 2003, Monteiro started his business by renting studios on the second floor of the building that houses No Problemo on Purchase Street.

The goal of the Membership-Based Music Business is to work with artists who are interested in pursuing a career in music, be it singing, production or engineering. The building includes studios, a live rehearsal space for groups, a podcast studio, a radio station and possibly a screen printing service.

“It’s basically everything an artist would need in one place,” Monteiro said. “We try to focus all of our resources on our members and give them everything they need individually to be successful. “

Monteiro said he’s still lived on both coasts since moving to Los Angeles in 2006. He’s not fully back in Whaling City, but has spent most of the summer trying to pull together building.

“We are making steady progress,” he said, adding that the building is already open and accessible to members. “We have some ideas for exterior and interior murals. I do my best to set the mood with the lighting.

A stencil for the Abstrakt Music logo can be seen on the floor, next to a desk that was once the mayor's office of New Bedford in one of the studios yet to be completed at the new Abstrakt Music studios, located in the former Hamel Waxler Allen & Collins building on Union Street in New Bedford.

Monteiro says the layout of the building has been a perfect fit. The parts do not touch each other, which is great for recording music. He also said that some of the rooms have smaller built-in rooms, which will eventually become recording booths.

“It has been a law firm for 40 years. So it really looks like a lawyer’s office. We take our time just to add that creative touch.

Transition to a new building

Since 1981, Hamel, Waxler, Allen, & Collins PC has resided in the Zietz building. In June, founding partner John L. Collins and his business partner, Mario A. Pimentel, sold the building and moved to a smaller location on Hillman Street in New Bedford.

“It wasn’t an emotional transition, but rather a tall physical challenge,” Collins said. “We probably had 25,000 closed cases. The basement of this building looked like the National Library of Congress. And they had to be shredded.

John L. Collins has been the founding partner of the firm since its inception in 1981

Collins said what he liked about the Zeitz building was that it had big framing, a gorgeous brick facade in a perfect location around the corner. However, the decision to move was due to the fact that they weren’t using the majority of the space and the interior was in desperate need of a facelift.

“Mikey was fascinated by the history of the building and how it looked,” Collins said. “When we made a deal for him to buy it, he was interested in keeping almost everything that was left. So it was really cool. Collins’ wife Diane Arsenault – a real estate agent for Jack Conway & Company – handled the sale to Abstrakt Music.

The history of the Zeitz building

According to a 1978 Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System (MACRIS) report for the Barney Zeitz building, it was originally part of William Rotch’s estate. The property was the site of the old Grace Church which had been demolished in 1896.

In 1921, Barney Zeitz bought the property and built the Zeitz Building. According to Carmen Maiocci’s “The Center: Downtown New Bedford in the 1950s”, the space was used as the New Bedford Theater. A momentous event that took place at the theater was the world premiere of “Moby Dick” on June 27, 1956. In 1968, the theater was demolished and this part of the building was converted into offices.

In 1931, part of the location also featured Burt’s Union Street Grill. Burt’s has been described as a great place for “a solid meal, a strong drink and a great atmosphere”.

In 1952, New Bedford restaurateur Peter Keneklis took possession of it. According to Maiocci’s research, “Lots of Standard-Times reporters hung out there, as did the town hall crowd.”

Mike Monteiro walks to the side door onto N. Sixth Street in the new Abstrakt Music Studios, located in the old Hamel Waxler Allen & Collins building on Union Street in New Bedford.

Plus, guests could get a steak dinner for 65 cents. The pub also drew tons of foot traffic from the theater. “Burt’s was a very popular place for downtown businessmen back then,” Collins said, adding that there was still an old walk-in freezer in the Zeitz’s basement. Burt’s closed in 1989, becoming Winston’s English Pub.

Hamel, Waxler, Allen & Collins opened their business in 1981. Still focusing on personal injury law, Collins today says his firm focuses on workers’ compensation cases. He and his wife recently sold their 35-year-old Marion house and moved into a condo in Mattapoisett.

Key collection for the Zeitz building

Now in the new Hillman Street space, Collins said the transition was easy except for learning how to use the new phone system. “It’s like we’ve been here for a long time,” he said, adding that he still passed the Zeitz building from time to time.

“I’m really excited for Mikey and his partner,” Collins said. “I think their plan for the building is a fantastic use of it. This can only help revive downtown New Bedford, as this revival seems to be making its way through the streets slowly but surely. “

For Monteiro, he is satisfied with the progress made so far. “I’m digging in the building… it’s funny, you can almost see the layers over the years of what’s been covered,” he said. “I dissect things and find original wallpaper.”

The old law books are still on the shelves in the background, in the new podcast-specific studio in the new Abstrakt Music studios, located in the old Hamel Waxler Allen & Collins building on Union Street in New Bedford.

Monteiro said Collins left behind an old jukebox that had been part of the space since the 1930s. There are old law books on the podcast studio shelves and vintage furniture in some of the other spaces. .

“You can see the history of this building, and you can definitely feel it,” Monteiro said. “It has been a truly amazing trip so far.”

The WWE production team is both the best and the worst thing about the company

0


It can’t be said that the WWE production team has its ups and downs. Their video packages alone are hands down the best in the business. If they wanted to, their incredible pre-game hype videos could turn The Great Kahli vs. Hornswoggle into the main event of Wrestlemania. There are many examples of WWE story-enhancing video packages; everyone will remember Daniel Bryan’s “Monster” video package before Wrestlemania 30, or the “Running Up That Hill” video package from Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels for Wrestlemania 26. The most famous example of WWE’s mastery in promotion is The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin “My Way” Video Pack for Wrestlemania X-Seven.

Kevin Dunn leads the WWE production team as executive producer and is the right hand man of Vince McMahon, one of WWE’s longest-serving employees, and has produced Raw since its inception. He has rarely appeared on WWE lineup, but his name is one wrestling fans would have heard somehow.

RELATED: Vince McMahon’s Right Hand: Who Is WWE’s Kevin Dunn?

The WWE product definitely looks good overall as Dunn is clearly a talented TV director / producer, the WWE sets are undeniably beautiful, the live crowds are always well lit and visible, and the entries always make their wrestlers feel like superstars. The broadcasts, more or less, run from week to week without incident. All other wrestling companies have production teams, but WWE stands out above the rest in this regard.

At a time when the world was closed, WWE and Kevin Dunn created the Thunderdome. When all sports were trying to figure out how to make arenas look good with no one in the building, WWE handled it with ease. The Thunderdome looked so good that it even upped the rating for a few weeks, giving WWE a certain level of normalcy at a time when it was desperately needed.

Kevin Dunn’s Worst

Fans may not know Kevin Dunn personally, or even what he looks like, although many have likely heard the plethora of less than flattering descriptions of him from the former WWE Creative Team member. , Jim Cornette. Needless to say, Kevin Dunn built up quite a large list of enemies during his time. And while he’s a talented TV producer more often than not, Kevin Dunn has undoubtedly picked up a few bad habits over the year, the most notable of which is using a ridiculous amount of clippings. camera. Camera cuts have become obnoxious over the years, with one example having 32 cuts in 34 seconds. Is it really necessary?

But these are just the small problems when operating the grinder segments. It’s not like Kevin Dunn is missing out on the big moments. Law?

RELATED: 8 Things Fans Can’t Stand About Kevin Dunn

Well, can we forgive WWE for cutting Edge’s first spear in 7 years when he returned from the 2020 Royal Rumble? Or what about AJ Styles’ big reveal in his WWE debut, instead staying on an inexplicably long Roman Reigns shot? According to CageSideSeats, a lesser-known example of this was in a Shield / Triple H segment, with Dunn missing a crucial shot from the Shield standing over Triple H’s prone body. Obviously, WWE COO n was not happy with this, although fans speculated Dunn did it on purpose, as he and Triple H have had a lot of issues over the years. Many believe this is the reason many NXT commands don’t have much success on the main roster, with Dunn deliberately burying them in Vince McMahon. There is even speculation that if Triple H takes over WWE, Kevin Dunn will be the first to be shown the door.

edge aew talks return contract wwe

For Dunn, he never produced a wrestling show, it was always a “sports entertainment” show. And that’s clear because Kevin Dunn is one of the main supporters of turning the word “catch” into a dirty word that should never be used on WWE TV.

Whether or not fans like Kevin Dunn’s job, that probably won’t change anytime soon as he has a lifelong job in Vince McMahon’s eyes; he will be there as long as Vince himself. Dunn has undeniably had some success, having been the producer of every Wrestlemania, every Legendary Moment in WWE history, every Segment and every Match for over three decades. But are those hits good enough to outweigh his hiccups these days?

MIAMI, September 15, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The documentary premiered at the Auber International Film Festival in Paris, France, where he received the award for Best feature documentary in 2021.

The film achieves its goal of proving what is possible when ignoring opponents, rejecting caution, and plunging headlong into their dreams without a safety net.

The documentary presents a behind-the-scenes look at how a solo filmmaker expanded his limited resources to what is now known as Think Global Media dba Global Filmz – a media company employing more than 30 full-time filmmakers in the whole world. It showcases exotic locations and the wide range of projects that the Global Filmz team has tackled since the inception of the brand.

After losing his job in 2014, Nathan took charge of his future. With a family to support and a negative bank account balance $ 35, he decided to pursue his career as a director full time. At first it was just him, a Panasonic GH4, and a cheap light kit. He would go up and down Florida in a 24-year-old Audi convertible taking any job that came his way.

It was throughout these humble beginnings that the group of creatives who now make up the company’s core production team were first brought together. As Nathan points out: “It takes a village, obviously the bigger you get the more you need it.”

This inspiring documentary shows each of these unique personalities with their own stories. Their individual perspectives, talent and cheerful team dynamics are the driving force behind the growth and overall success of the Global Filmz brand.

The documentary is currently making its way into the film festival circuit. Whoever is present will have a first glimpse of Committed to the profession – Filmz’s global history before the official release in winter 2022.

Sportico first reported that the investment was in the works. SpringHill reportedly spoke to potential buyers and investors earlier this summer for a valuation of around $ 750 million.

RedBird, led by Gerry Cardinale, has also been active in the media space, investing in Skydance, joining Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia in buying the XFL and investing in Casey Wasserman’s Wasserman Media.

Trumbull said the Rough House Pictures team became fans of Lowcountry Kettle after a reunion in 2019.

They hold the majority of the company’s capital, with a 24.9% stake in Access Entertainment, a division of Access Industries owned by industrialist Len Blavatnik. Media giants Sky and HBO both have a 5% stake in Bad Wolf.

It’s unclear whether HBO or Sky will bid to acquire the company, or if the current directors could retain a stake after a deal.

The sales process is overseen by GCA Advisors, according to the publication Broadcast.

As well as bringing top-notch productions to Wales, the directors of Bad Wolf have played a key role in promoting Wales’ wider creative industries sector to the world. They have also ensured a much wider economic impact for the Welsh economy of Bad Wolf’s productions by championing a strong indigenous supply chain.

However, an acquisition raises the question of hiring a new owner to keep Wolf Studios Wales running. Could they, for example, choose to move productions to lower cost locations or those offering more generous filming incentives like Romania?

Bad Wolf declined to comment when asked if the business is for sale.

The freehold interest in Wolf Studios Wales, on the site of the former Nippon glass factory in Cardiff Bay, belongs to the Welsh government, with Bad Wolf on a long-term lease.

Bad Wolf is currently in post-production for the next series of Discovery for Witches, with filming in progress including that of the next series of His Dark Materials and Industry.

Its latest published accounts, for the year ended December 2019, show the company to generate revenue of £ 90million and pre-tax profit of £ 2.8million.

The company employs around 500 people. In 2019 it was named the fastest growing indigenous company in Wales under the Wales Fast Growth 50 initiative.

To shoot the scenes well, we were lucky since one of the main colors of our brand is green, we already had an office wall painted anise green. This background saved us time by helping with the chroma key. We spent a lot of time testingExplore different ways to chroma key and refine the way we use our tools when combined.

Light.

Production lighting is a balance, and when done right, done for a clean chroma key. We needed make sure our background accent wall with his adjacent windows could strIke a attractive balance of light sources when combined. For natural light, the available windows would have too many weather variables throughout the day, so we are done by keeping the window coverings closed to access greater consistency in our images.

For a costefficient solution, we opted for a pairing combination of external microphones with the noise canceling function of the Zoom conference platform as our best choice.Sean Willmon, NewBlue Product specialist

Cable management.

While cables may be the smallest piece of equipment used, they require a lot of attention and strategy to plan how to manage them. We knew our limited space would limit where the production team could go. space without affecting the signal flow of any cable. We time spent fixing of cable sets and cable extensions with individual labels envelope for each cable for easy reference and to avoid any mishap. We then fixed them in place. To help with a clean cable aesthetic, we incorporated a office podie with holes so the cables would not be as exhibitionsed To the camera. Our The HDMI extenders weren’t long enough so we had to order a length increased by 10 feet extensions to accommodate the space. Take the time to plan and to organisee the broadcast makes it easier to turn things around if we ever need to pick up and Dto hang up on the other side the room.

On-air tests.
