David Rose obituary

15 February 2017 8:09 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Producer of Z Cars for BBC Television who later became the driving force behind Channel 4’s Film on Four movie output

When Channel 4 was launched in 1982, its brief was to be distinctive and innovative. As a senior commissioning editor and then head of drama until 1990, David Rose, who has died aged 92, took up that challenge for the movies produced under the banner of Film on Four, with many successes including Neil Jordan’s Angel (1982) and Mona Lisa (1986), David Leland’s Wish You Were Here (1987) and Mike Leigh’s High Hopes (1988).

Two decades earlier, Rose had been breaking new ground at BBC Television, as the first official producer of its police series Z Cars, and he went on to invigorate regional drama for the corporation. Among the writers whose talents he nurtured were Alan Plater, David Rudkin and Alan Bleasdale – and David Hare was astonished and delighted by his boldness. »

Majority of production loans have gone to female directors.

New projects from Neil Jordan, Neasa Hardiman (both pictured) and John Butler are among those supported by the Irish Film Board in its latest round of funding decisions.

Filmmaker Neasa Hardiman, whose television credits include Happy Valley and Tracy Beaker Returns, will make her feature directorial debut with Sea Fever, which has been given a provisional offer of commitment by the Ifb. 

The film, centred on a science student who becomes isolated from her superstitious trawler crew as they struggle to overcome a deadly parasite in their water supply, was also written by Hardiman and will be produced by Fantastic Films.

Playback: Oscar Nominee Ruth Negga on ‘Loving’ and Diversity in Hollywood

26 January 2017 1:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.

On today’s show, Jenelle Riley and I react to this week’s Oscar nominations. Surprises included Amy Adams missing the cut for “Arrival” and, of course, “La La Land” tying the all-time record with 14 nominations. But where do we go from here? Will Damien Chazelle’s musical sweep on through and tie (or even break) another record, for wins? Also, what to expect from the Producers Guild and Screen Actors Guild Awards this weekend?

Later (00:00) I’m talking to Ruth Negga, the star of “Loving” and a bit of an unexpected Oscar nominee herself. After seemingly fading down the stretch in the heat of a very contentious best actress race, she roared back with a surprise mention.

Director Jeff Nichols didn’t take the standard approach to “Loving.” It’s not a movie full of histrionics and acting fireworks. It’s a quiet study, »

4th Paris Images Trade Show Announces Threefold Increase in Foreign Production Spend in France in 2016

16 January 2017 1:16 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The organizers of the five-event Paris Images Trade Show, one of the world’s biggest film production and post-production trade fairs, has disclosed that total foreign spend under France’s tax rebate for international shoots tripled in 2016, with a further rise predicted this year.

Over recent years, France has invested significantly in its technical infrastructure, including the construction of new studio facilities, such as Luc Besson’s Paris Studios and the Provence Studios near Marseille. The country also boasts world-leading animation and VFX shops, including Illumination MacGuff, Mikros Images, TeamTO, Buf and Cube Creative.

One of the key drivers of the rising demand for Gallic technical facilities is France’s Trip international tax rebate scheme, whose rate was upped from 20% to 30% of spend in France from Jan. 1, 2016.

Trip has had a key role in tripling foreign investment, said two of Paris Images’ organizers, Valérie Lépine-Karnik, CEO of Film France, and Yann Marchet, »
