The (Other) Men of Hitchcock: Huston, Stuhlbarg and D'Arcy

20 November 2012 9:00 AM, PST

Much is known about the public life of Alfred Hitchcock, the iconic director and master of suspense, but what about the quieter moments of the man truly behind the curtain? The soon-to-be released Hitchcock seeks to fill in those blanks. Adapted from Stephen Rebello's famous book about the making of Psycho, the multi-layered screenplay by John J. McLaughlin (Black Swan) provides a revealing study of the famous director's state of mind during the making of his most famous and controversial picture, Psycho. Starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Toni Collette, Scarlett Johansson and number of esteemed supporting actors - James D'Arcy, Michael Stuhlbarg and Danny Huston, to name a few - Hitchcock has all the ingredients to be one of the biggest movies of the holiday (and award) season. McLaughlin and director Sacha Gervasi faced a difficult task: how to explore the inner life of one of Hollywood's most public personas? »

Gathr, “Shuffle” and the New World of Theatrical On Demand℠

20 November 2012 12:00 AM, PST

Editor's Note: A few months ago, Gathr founder Scott Glosserman laid out the case for Theatrical On Demand℠ platforms in his piece 'Gathr is the Love Child of Netflix and Kickstarter.' As a follow-up, we thought it would be helpful to present a case study from a filmmaker who has used the service to generate theatrical audiences for his film. This week, Kurt Kuenne walks us through his experience. Every filmmaker wants his or her movie to play in theatres. Seeing a great movie on the big screen is what made most of us want to make movies in the first place. But I learned a surprising lesson on my last film, a low-budget documentary called Dear Zachary: a letter to a son about his father. The film was released in theatres and on home video by the wonderful Oscilloscope Laboratories, founded by David Fenkel and the late, great Adam Yauch. »

Fame High Goes on the Road Again with Kickstarter

19 November 2012 4:00 AM, PST

Fame High captures a year at the prestigious Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (Lachsa). Lachsa is a tuition-free public school offering a rigorous college-preparatory academic curriculum and conservatory-style training in the visual and performing arts. The arts teachers are working professionals, and some of the famous alumni include singing phenomenon Josh Groban, Corbin Bleu, Fergie, and more. At a time when the arts are being cut from so many schools across the country, Lachsa is a shining example of the importance of arts in education. Named one of the five best arts high schools in America by the Kennedy Center Network of Creative Alliances for the Arts and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Lachsa sends more than 95% of its graduates to higher education - a stunning contrast to the national average of approximately 65%. But Fame High isn't a medicinal, ‘issue only' documentary: it is a highly entertaining, »
