Channeling David Fincher: How ‘House of Cards’ Created a ‘Hyper’ Look For Its Most Ambitious Episode

17 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Television shows establish the foundation of their look and visual language with their pilot episode. This is especially true for “House of Cards,” in which one of Hollywood’s most distinct visual storytellers, David Fincher, served as both executive producer and the director of the first two episodes. From its precise and dramatic compositions to its monochromatic color palette to the often dark, low source light photography, “House of Cards” embodies some of the most recognizable elements of Fincher’s style.

Which is precisely why cinematographer David M. Dunlap faced a challenge when the show’s forty-fifth episode called for something very different. In the episode, President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) is unconscious and fighting for his life in a hospital, having been shot at the end of previous episode. A »

Why the Emmys Should Crown ‘The Americans,’ Not ‘Game of Thrones’: IndieWire’s Emmy Endorsements (Drama)

16 August 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Drama Series

Nominees:

The Americans

Better Call Saul

Downton Abbey

Game of Thrones

Homeland

House of Cards

Mr. Robot

IndieWire’s Vote: “The Americans

We’re obviously big fans of a lot of these shows. “Better Call Saul,” “Mr. Robot” and even “House of Cards” are deserving nominees, and there’s no shame in voting for any one of them. But come on: “The Americans” getting an Emmy nod for Outstanding Drama Series is like the Chicago Cubs reaching the World Series. If they made it this far — finally — they better freaking win. “The Americans” has been the best drama on cable for four years. An intricate spy thriller side-by-side with an equally compelling family drama, Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields have crafted a series as appealing as it is relevant. When it comes to FX’s best show (which is saying something), it’s more than just “you should »

Emmy Predictions 2016: Production and Costume Design Races Reflect Cultural Upheaval

12 August 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“The Times They Are a Changin'” pretty well sums up this year’s Emmy craft contenders for production and costume design. The series all deal with social, political and cultural upheaval, which provided creative opportunities in designing and dressing characters on the cusp of change.

Production Design

In the race for production design (fantasy or contemporary), Amazon’s adaptation of Philip K.Dick’s “The Man in the High Castle” is building buzz for its retro-future vision, in which the Nazis and Japanese won World War II.

For production designer Drew Boughton, that meant three distinct looks for New York City (run by the Nazis), San Francisco (occupied by the Japanese) and Canon City, Colorado (the neutral zone). New York offered an austere, concrete, gray vibe reminiscent of the Eastern block, San Francisco went more wood and aqua blue and Canon City was rural, like a Western.

Ocean's 8: Hathaway, Rihanna, Kaling And More Ladies Join Cast

10 August 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Deadline reported this morning that actors Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helen Bonham Carter and musical entertainers Rihanna and Awkwafina will join Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett in Gary Ross' Ocean's Eleven spin-off Ocean's 8 (or Ocean's Ocho).  The female driven caper spin off  will add one more leading lady to the cast and consider the possibilities of cameos from any of the previous versions. Steven Soderbergh will produce a script written by Ross and newcomer scribe Olivia Milch. With the recent news of a female-led Summer blockbuster falling short thus a sequel not likely to happen (no doubt the vigorous bullying and campaigning against that film had some effect) does the news of a female-led Oceans spin-off destroy anyone's childhoods? The door is that way. ...
