Culture of Collaboration Spurs Activity at RadicalMedia

27 September 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

RadicalMedia, a player on the New York production scene for nearly 25 years, has two floors worth of hustle and bustle going on most days at its heavily trafficked West Village headquarters.

The production company, founded in 1993 by producer Jon Kamen, is active in everything from film, TV, commercials, and music videos to post-production, app development, and staging live branded “experiences” for corporate clients. Radical boasts the infrastructure and the reputation that make it perfectly situated to capitalize on the explosive growth in the demand for content, particularly the documentary and music-driven projects for which the company is best known.

“We’ve gone from three to four series and three to four films in production a year, to now 12 series in production and four to five films at any given time,” says Justin Wilkes, Radical partner and president of entertainment. “It’s been a rising tide that has lifted all boats.”

Saturday's best TV: Labour leadership result; Keith Richards' Lost Weekend

23 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The verdict of Labour’s protracted leadership contest is finally announced, while the Rolling Stones’ venerable guitar-slinger continues his BBC takeover

7pm, BBC4

Keith Richards appears indestructible. But this time last year we thought that about Lemmy, Prince and Bowie. BBC4 has wisely determined that we must enjoy the venerable guitar-slinger while we can, and has handed him control of the channel for three days. As well as a fascinating interview with Julien Temple, look out for a curated selection of the culture that has informed this remarkable rock’n’roll outlaw. Phil Harrison

Pie, badgers, rock'n'roll: what to expect from Keith Richards' BBC all-nighters

21 September 2016 8:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

In an unprecedented move for the BBC, the Rolling Stones guitarist will do a 27-hour takeover, bringing a ‘jolt of risk’ to TV – and sharing his shepherd’s pie recipe

Blues, badgers, Italian neorealist cinema, rock’n’roll and shepherd’s pie; the passions of Keith Richards are as eclectic as you might expect. They are also not the subject matter you usually find being addressed on BBC4 late at night – that is, until this weekend.

In an unprecedented move for the BBC, the Rolling Stones guitarist will be handed the reigns of BBC4 over three nights, to curate a weekend of programming about whatever he finds interesting. Working with renowned music documentary film-maker Julien Temple, Richards has put together a line-up of films, cartoons, music clips and footage that will be broadcast on the channel between 7pm and 4am each night, offering a rare insight into the intriguing mind of the 72-year-old. »

17 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's amazing what a difference a stripped-down "Honky-Tonk Women" makes.

There's a lot to recommend about The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America, Paul Dugdale's rock-doc-cum-tour-diary about the group's jaunt through Central and South America earlier this year and that that premiered last night at the Toronto Film Festival. Following Mick & Co. through 10 Latin American countries, it culminates in their historic first show ever in Cuba on March 25th; it would have taken place a few days earlier, were the gents not bumped by »

Chloe Grace Moretz and her real life counterpart lit up the red carpet at last night's Tiff premiere of Brain on Fire.

Based on the best-selling memoir, Brain on Fire tells Susannah Cahalan's story of her extremely rare and shocking autoimmune disorder. Chloe Grace Moretz effectively portrays Susannah's difficult journey as a twenty-four year old journalist whose life turns upside for down when she starts experiencing bizarre symptoms that cause her to be constantly misdiagnosed. It's a riveting story that we can't wait to see on the big screen.

He Acts! Steven Tyler Dishes About His New Movie - and What He Really Wants to Star in Next

Did you know that Hall of Fame-anointed Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is also an actor? The former American Idol judge has a lengthy IMDb, which includes a role in the upcoming horror thriller Happy Birthday. "It's all in good fun," Tyler tells People via email of his fun-loving and eccentric character Kasape Suka, who crosses paths with the film's main characters during an illegal activity-filled, unexpectedly dangerous birthday celebration in the town of Mexicali. Tyler, who's appeared frequently on TV and film, though mainly as himself, says he put a lot of effort into his performance so that his character »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America’

12 September 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Dugdale’s Rolling Stones tour documentary, “The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America,” arrives just a few short years after Martin Scorsese’s concert doc “Shine a Light,” Brett Morgan’s “Crossfire Hurricane,” and Morgan Neville’s “Keith Richards: Under the Influence,” among others. It also arrives alongside yet another Rolling Stones concert documentary also directed by Dugdale, “Havana Moon,” which will get a one-night-only theatrical release later this month. Given such a glut of recent documentary material on the 54-year-old band, the question has to be asked: Does this particular Rolling Stones film really have any pressing need to exist? In the case of “Olé,” the answer is: “maybe not, but so what?”

Partially a concert film, partially a meandering travelogue, and partially the record of a genuinely historic moment in the band’s later career, “Olé” follows the Stones on their 2016 jaunt through Latin America, »

Saddam Goes to Hollywood review – the Carry On farce behind the Iraqi dictator’s foray into film-making

24 July 2016 11:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This transfixing documentary follows Saddam’s vanity project – a film about Iraq with a budget as big as Return of the Jedi and hard-drinking, hell-raising Oliver Reed as its star. Plus: the pre-Stones life of Keith Richards

Baghdad, 1981. Actor Oliver Reed is not required on set so he has all his hotel’s booze under siege. It’s daiquiris by the pool at 10am, then sambuca, followed by champagne at midday. By 10pm, he is smashing down guests’ doors and demanding they join him in drinking Rémy Martin from a bucket. The day’s revels end with him goading companions to dangle him from the rooftop. “Oliver Reed was a weapon of mass destruction,” declares a co-star in the cinematic bomb that barely got made.

Saddam Goes to Hollywood (Channel 4, Sunday) is the story of how the Iraqi dictator decided to make a film about the rise of the »

10 Rare Cover Songs by Amy Winehouse That Demand Your Attention

23 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27, popular music lost one of its most talented young voices. She had stunned the world in 2006 with her breakthrough album, Back To Black, which showcased her larger-than-life vocal range and songwriting skills that belayed her tender years. By the end of her life Winehouse had become infamous for her personal problems and drug-fueled exploits, but her music will endure long after the tabloid headlines are forgotten. While most of her songs are autobiographical, featuring lyrics brimming with equal parts wit and vulnerability, she wasn't afraid to add her own unique twist to familiar tunes. »

Rolling Stones Lash Out at Donald Trump (Again) Over Song Use

The Rolling Stones have told Donald Trump and told him twice, but they just can’t get no satisfaction from the Gop presidential nominee. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and company have once again taken Trump to task for playing their music without permission, this time for the use of “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” during the Republican National Convention on Thursday. The group issued a statement on Friday stating in no uncertain terms that they are not fans of Trump, and they don’t appreciate being included on his campaign playlist.

The Rolling Stones in ‘C—sucker Blues’: a verité gas, gas, gas

21 July 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There is hardly such thing as an underground movie anymore — except, perhaps, for the ones that have to go underground because they aren’t allowed to be shown. The rough, grainy, outlaw king of those is “C—sucker Blues.” Not because you can never see it, but because on the rare occasions when you can, it has acquired the aura of an unholy testament: the ultimate down and dirty peek behind the curtain of 1970s rock & roll excess. It’s the time capsule that keeps on giving because it’s still semi-buried.

In 1972, the Rolling Stones recruited photographer Robert Frank to shoot a fly-on-the-wall film of their up-and-coming U.S. tour after the release of “Exile on Main Street.” Frank had created the extraordinary cover art for “Exile,” that tawdry collage of photographs that merged the Stones in all their let-it-loose glory with an homage to the rootsy mysteries of Americana. »

How ‘The Knick’ Got More Extravagant with Production and Costume Design (Emmy Watch)

29 June 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In season two of “The Knick,” while pioneering surgeon John Thackery (Clive Owen) continues battling personal demons, there’s an expansion into the higher echelon of New York affluence in both production and costume design. This helps broaden the tension between social progress and class disparity in 1901.

This gave production designer Howard Cummings greater opportunities to explore high society in real New York locations. He ventured from Yonkers to Staten Island and everywhere else in between, and even crept into Long Island.

“In season two, we shot in every borough, including a burning building in Yonkers as the new Knick hospital under construction,” explained Cummings. “Location found a Victorian-looking insurance records warehouse built in 1901 and was never completed. But the interior was all brick and fire proof, and they actually set fire to it and shot that at the very end of the schedule.”
