Two-time Survivor contestant Michael Skupin was sentenced Tuesday morning in Michigan to one to four years in prison for child pornography and larceny, People confirms.

"Bird, who comes from Pixar- which has always had a great reputation for balancing heart, humor, and spectacle- first caught my eye with The Incredibles. I loved the retro feel, the adventurous tone, and the way it had fun with superhero conventions while still having a lot of genuine emotion at its core. For a while, though, thought of him as a 'cartoon guy, »

91-Year-Old Woman Who Skipped Cancer Treatment to Go RVing Across the Country Dies After Year-Long Adventure

3 October 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When faced with a cancer diagnosis at age 90, Norma Jean Bauerschmidt chose the open road over the hospital. Rather than undergoing months of painful treatments, Bauerschmidt embarked on the adventure of a lifetime - touring the United States in a motor home captained by her son Tim and his wife Ramie. As Ramie explained to People last year, when Norma's doctor reviewed all the possible treatments for her stage 4 uterine cancer, the World War II veteran simply said no.

Top Women Cinematographers Reveal 7 Best Tips for Career Success

5 June 2016 6:33 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

What does it take to succeed in a man’s world? A Los Angeles Film Festival panel of women cinematographers ivealed what it took to make it to the top of a competitive industry.

1. A shot of LSD. Cinema verite shooter Joan Churchill (“Last Days in Vietnam”) started out by recovering from an eight-hour acid trip, she admitted, to shoot some of the most iconic images from the Rolling Stones Altamont doc, “Gimme Shelter.” That led to the assignment of shooting the Louds in PBS’s “An American Family.” A documentary cameraperson, often working with a hand-held camera and natural light, has to have “people skills,” she said. “You have to be interested in your subjects.” When she moved to London, she couldn’t get work until she joined the Asc—and became its first woman member. Her membership card read: “Lady Cameraman.”

2. Read and reread the script. French-born Maryse Alberti »
