Following the success of Boardwalk Empire, Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter are once again partnering on a new HBO series titled Vinyl. Set in 1970s New York, the series will explore the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of a record executive trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound. The Rolling Stones band member Mick Jagger will also be joining Scorsese and Winter on the show as a producer, and Scorsese will once again helm the pilot. Though not much else is known about the series yet, we can only assume based on Winter’s track record, that it will be well worth watching. Plus it promises an amazing soundtrack at the very least.

Meadowland opens on limited release in the Us on October 16 and through VOD on October 23. »
The drama screened in April at the Tribeca Film Festival. In her review, Sheila O’Malley (rogerebert.com) said Morano’s movie, “shows a strong visual style, at times overwrought and hallucinatory, at other times quiet and focused. The acting is terrific and grounded, without the expected theatrics or huge breakdowns. Grief is an enclosed and very silent world. That’s the thing that nobody tells you about it, and that’s the devastating process shown in “Meadowland.”
One of the must-see movies of 2015, the cast includes Olivia Wilde, Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, Elisabeth Moss, Ty Simpkins, John Leguizamo, Kevin Corrigan, Merritt Wever, Scott Mescudi, Mark Feuerstein and Juno Temple.

After serving as cinematographer on Kill Your Darlings, The Skeleton Twins, Frozen River, and more, Reed Morano debuted her first directorial effort at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Meadowland brings together the talents of Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson as grieving parents in the aftermath of losing their child.
We said in our review, “With authentic performances from the ensemble, this process of healing (as destructive as it may be) effectively comes across, but as we dive deeper into the abyss of loss, the story strays from its grounded realism and becomes too contrived to fully convey its intended emotion.” Also starring Giovanni Ribisi, Elisabeth Moss, Ty Simpkins, John Leguizamo, Kevin Corrigan, Merritt Wever, Scott Mescudi, Mark Feuerstein and Juno Temple, check out the trailer below.

The transition from cinematographer into feature film director is trickier than you'd think. Arguably the Dp has the best seat in the house, but there are countless examples of cinematographers turned director that didn't quite work (see our feature: 15 Cinematographers Turned Director) and or outright failed. The latest director to make the leap is Dp Reed Morano. On our Cinematographers On The Rise list from 2012, Morano made her name lensing indie pictures and Sundance faves like "Frozen River," "Kill Your Darlings," "The Skeleton Twins" and more. Her directorial debut is "Meadowland," a visceral drama about grief, self-destruction and recovery (read our review from the Tribeca Film Festival). And the movie has quite the cast too starring Olivia Wilde, Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, plus supporting appearances by Elisabeth Moss, Ty Simpkins, John Leguizamo, Kevin Corrigan, Merritt Wever, Scott Mescudi, Mark Feuerstein and Juno Temple. »
