In movie world, the second installment typically means whatever preexisting villain there is will be back, and badder than ever. For stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, this means the freak hurricane that rocked the West Coast, causing sharks to wind up on land has moved east to New York City. But is the sharknado that aims to destroy all of midtown Manhattan the most intimidating fish ever, or simply a monster that wants to share a Peach Pit burger with Steve Sanders?

4 hours ago | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Adam Epstein is a freelance editor. For the last five years, he’s worked with the Saturday Night Live film unit, editing parody pieces of all kinds. He’s just begun a nationwide workshop tour with “The Cutting Edge Post-Production Tour,” a day-long seminar covering techniques, theories and editing insights. We recently spoke to Epstein about editing, working on SNL and the workshop tour. Filmmaker: How did you become an editor? Epstein: In my experience, it’s never a direct path.

Emmy Supporting Nominees Break Free From Their Best-Known Roles

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

No profession is more about reinvention than acting, but this year’s comedy supporting acting nominees are proof that Emmy voters enjoy seeing performers break out of boxes — even if those actors weren’t so sure they were in a box in the first place.

A prime example is Emmy veteran Allison Janney, who has four statuettes for her dramatic acting on NBC’s “The West Wing,” and earned her first comedy nom this year for her work as Bonnie, a recovering alcoholic single mom, on CBS’ freshman sitcom “Mom.” (She’s also nommed for her guest drama role on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.”)

“I love comedy so much, and I’ve always been a very physical person,” she says. “It’s always been part of my repertoire. ‘Mom’ is a traditionally comic (show), but as far as I’m concerned, we could put ‘Mom’ in the drama category. »

Lena Dunham and Fred Armisen on Twitter, ‘SNL’ and Working Together

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“It is an honor just to be nominated,” insisted both Lena Dunham, the creator and star of “Girls,” and “Portlandia’s” Fred Armisen, when Variety caught up with the Emmy comedy nominees recently. While they were clearly delighted with each other’s noms, the actors said they were content to simply enjoy the attention, along with the Aug. 25 ceremony. Both Dunham and Armisen had plenty to distract them in the meantime — Dunham was getting ready to shoot the fourth-season finale of her HBO show, while Armisen was in pre-production on the fifth season of IFC’s “Portlandia.”

Armisen: Wow, you’re already up to the season finale already!

Dunham: We are! I don’t know if you’ve found this but it goes faster, as the seasons go on. Today Zosia (Mamet) was like, “Yeah, it’s like how camp goes faster as you get older.”

Armisen: Yeah, it becomes like a blur. »

Laugh Tracks Are No Replacement for the Real Thing

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A funny thing happened this pilot season. Or rather, a funny thing didn’t.

The networks turned out a handful of multi-cams with laugh tracks — or sweetened live studio audience recordings, as they like to refer to them.

Whatever you call it, it’s like nails on a chalkboard to me. And I know I’m not alone.

I love to laugh. Just don’t tell me when to do it.

This isn’t a rant against multi-cams: I adore “The Big Bang Theory,” and barely notice the audio. Maybe it’s because I’m laughing. Or maybe it’s because the show is actually — wait for it — funny.

And as a child of the ’70s and ’80s, I grew up on a steady diet of sitcoms. “Mash.” “Cheers.” “Happy Days.” “The Cosby Show.”

It’s not the format I have a problem with. It’s the humor, or the lack of faith in it. »

Theater, Improv Backgrounds Help Build Emmy-Nominated Comedy Casts

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Crafting an ensemble cast that has chemistry and serves a series takes experience and skill to a degree, but it can entail a healthy dose of risk-taking and finger-crossing as well.

When Jeanne McCarthy and Nicole Abellera first began assembling the cast of HBO’s Emmy-nominated “Silicon Valley,” show creator Mike Judge already had an idea about the types of actors he wanted to see in his fictional tech startup.

“Mike really knows this world,” McCarthy says. “It was great because (he) knows what’s authentic. (But) a lot of it is instinct. We were lucky that we were putting an ensemble together that could be populated with a lot of the people we have known from the comedy world for many years.”

Silicon Valley” — along with other outstanding comedy series Emmy nominees like “The Big Bang Theory,” “Modern Family,” “Orange Is the New Black” and “Veep” — rely on the »

Details About Maya Rudolph's Fourth Child Finally Revealed Days Before Her First Birthday

22 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Talk about keeping things private! Saturday Night Live alumna Maya Rudolph found a way to keep her fourth child's name and gender a secret for almost one whole year. According to documents just obtained by TMZ, Rudolph and her longtime partner Paul Thomas Anderson gave birth to a baby girl back on Aug. 1, 2013. Because she chose to give birth at her private home instead of a hospital, Rudolph was given more time to file an official birth certificate. In California, where the child was born, proper documentation must be filed before the baby's first birthday. Just in time, right? The couple chose to name their baby girl Minnie Ida Anderson after Rudolph's mother, »
