Interview: Uncharted and Firefly composer Greg Edmonson on the art of the soundtrack

21 September 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson talks to the BAFTA-award-winning film, TV and video game composer about his celebrated soundtrack work…

In today’s pop culture climate, no longer are composers limited to one genre or field of speciality. Increasingly our greatest musicians are diversifying across a host of different platforms, and one of the greatest is Greg Edmonson whose career has extended from some of TV’s greatest shows to some of the most successful video games of all time. In a discussion about his work, Greg chats about what constitutes a truly great soundtrack.

Thanks for talking to me about soundtracks, Greg. Given music composition is the backbone of your career, what are your first memories of the music you fell in love with?

Oh there are a number of things here – I remember the very first time I heard an orchestra play. What a wonderment! To me, at least, music is »

‘Ordinary World’ Trailer: Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Is a Failed Rock Star in First Leading Role

16 September 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Billie Joe Armstrong may be a Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and the frontman of Green Day, one the biggest punk bands ever. But in “Ordinary World,” his first leading role, he’s nothing but a failed rock star missing his glory days. 

Directed and written by Lee Kirk, Armstrong stars as Perry, a former punk rocker who is ten years into his band’s “indefinite hiatus” and is still struggling with adjusting to the real world. After his wife (Selma Blair) and his daughter (Madisyn Shipman) forget his 40th birthday, his brother (Chris Messina) takes pity and gives him money to throw the biggest birthday bash. Check out the latest trailer and poster below.

Actress Pamela Adlon on New FX Series ‘Better Things,’ Sundance Movie ‘First Girl I Loved’

8 September 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Pamela Adlon — who got her start on shows that included “The Facts of Life,” and went on to voice Bobby Hill in “King of the Hill” — is co-creator (with Louis C.K.) and star of the FX series “Better Things,” which debuts Sept. 8. She can also be seen — or heard — this year in seven animated series and a film that debuted at Sundance, “First Girl I Loved.”

What was your big break?

When I think about my “big break,” I don’t think about my first job, because I was a child actor. I feel like things started turning around for me when I did [the 1996 film] “Bed of Roses.” That was right after my dad had passed away suddenly, and things started shifting for me. That film was a big deal for my career.

Do you prefer live action or voiceover acting?

I love being in the recording studio, just because it’s easier. I love it »

'Better Things' star Pamela Adlon on child acting, androgyny, and Bobby Hill

8 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I really like Better Things, FX's new comedy starring and produced by Pamela Adlon, who was Louis C.K.'s frequent on- and off-screen collaborator on Louie. (Here's my review from yesterday.) The show is deeply autobiographical, with Adlon playing a thinly-disguised version of herself: a single mom to three daughters, and a former child actress still plugging away in show business (finding more success in voiceover work than on camera) decades later. At press tour, I sat down with Adlon to talk about how (when she was still going by Pamela Segall) she got started in the business, her early '80s androgynous period — highlighted by Willy/Milly, where she played an adolescent girl who wished to be a boy, and woke up the next morning with a penis — the transition into voice work on shows like King of the Hill, the ways that her new art imitates her old »

Mike Judge: 'Beavis and Butt-Head' could return, but with a twist

6 July 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Shut up Beavis. The teenage dirtbags who were all the rage in the 1990s, Beavis and Butt-Head, may not have reached the end of their pop culture life just yet. But if they do come back, it could be in a different form than fans are used to. In an interview with Radio Times, B&B and Silicon Valley creator Mike Judge explained that the trouble-making metal heads might be portrayed by real flesh-and-blood actors in their next iteration. “Maybe it could be a live-action someday,” Judge told the publication. As for who would play the title roles, Judge wasn’t sure. But he did suggest that Beavis might be “homeless.” Beavis and Butt-Head first aired as a series on MTV in 1993, quickly becoming a sensation. All told, there were nearly 200 episodes of the animated series between 1993-1997 with a brief re-boot in 2011. The devious duo hit the big screen »

Flashback: 'Office Space' Gleefully Mocks Michael Bolton

30 June 2016 9:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Office Space hit theaters in February of 1999, it took in a paltry $4.2 million in its first weekend, landing in eighth place behind such widely-forgotten turkeys as My Favorite Martian, Blast From The Past, Message in a Bottle and Payback. Writer/director Mike Judge had proven himself in television with Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill, but this seemed like it would end his foray into movies and live-action work before it really began.

Office Space made such a tiny impact when it opened, it's easy to imagine »

Silicon Valley season 3 interview: Judge, Middleditch & Berg

22 June 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 11, 2016

We chatted to the creators and star of the terrific Silicon Valley about season 3, cringe comedy and making HBO's lawyers nervous...

Had Mike Judge spent less of his youth playing guitar and more playing videogames, Silicon Valley might never have existed. HBO originally approached the Office Space, Beavis & Butt-Head and King Of The Hill creator about making a comedy based around games designers. No expert in that world, Judge instead mined his own brief experience as a coder in the late eighties to create the story of Richard Hendricks, a chronically anxious genius programmer thrown into the obscene wealth and volatile politics of Silicon Valley.

For three seasons, with a fourth confirmed to arrive next year, Hendricks' story has provided Judge and co. with the scope to satirise not only modern tech giants, but also to write a recognisable workplace comedy about a pack of underdogs attempting »

Archer renewed for seasons 8, 9 and 10

FX has granted animated comedy Archer a multiple season renewal, meaning it'll run all the way to season 10 in 2019...

Good news: the world won't have to live without a new season of Archer until at least 2019, and even then, who knows?

FX has just renewed Adam Reed's animated spy comedy for three further seasons.

Following its recently concluded seventh season in which the gang moved to La, Archer is confirmed to be returning for eighth, ninth and tenth runs. That's in addition to recent scuttlebutt about the show's creators wishing to make a live-action movie version featuring Mr Jon Hamm in the title role. 

H. Jon Benjamin, a voice you might recognise from Bob's Burgers, plays Archer's lead, alongside Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer and more.

If you've yet to have the pleasure, here's our take on why Arthur is well worth your time. »

The Films of Roberto Minervini: Capturing a Complicated Portrait of the American South

10 June 2016 11:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In the early 1970s, while in the midst of making his Trilogy of Life, Pier Paolo Pasolini publicly remarked that a kind of “cultural genocide” had overtaken his home country of Italy. Essentially, he pointed his finger at the overwhelming dominance of consumerism that he believed had begun to erase the positive values instilled by the nation’s history of peasantry.

Even decades removed, many will still find this statement heavily contentious, as it seems representational of a debate that’s raged in film culture — that, of course, over “aestheticizing poverty,” or, in some cases, romanticizing it. Among the many figures in contemporary world cinema who can be branded with this label, Pasolini’s countryman of a different generation, Roberto Minervini, certainly embraces the act while still complicating it.

His first three films forming a “Texas trilogy” showcase a deeply religious and increasingly abandoned milieu far from, say, the conservative »

"Beavis and Butt-Head" Live

7 June 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek some hideously realistic model images of the MTV cartoon characters "Beavis and Butt-Head":

The models were created by SFX artist Kevin Kirkpatrick ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides").

Kirkpatrick is an avid fan of the cartoon duo, that returned to MTV's new "Beavis and Butt-head"series.

Creator Mike Judge ("King Of The Hill") continues as the voice of both title characters.

Judge's short film "Frog Baseball" was the first appearance of "Beavis and Butt-Head" with MTV signing Judge to turn the concept into a series airing March 1993 to November 1997.

With its 'underground comix' sensibility, the show focused on two socially inept rock/metal-loving teenagers 'Beavis' and 'Butt-Head', who live in the town of 'Highland', Texas. They have no adult supervision at home, are woefully undereducated and arguably dim-witted.

They attend high school, where their teachers are often at a loss as to how to deal with them, »
