30 September 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three major cinematographers – Janusz Kaminski (“Lincoln”), Phedon Papamichael (“Nebraska”) and Wally Pfister (“The Dark Knight Rises”) – have teamed to present Advanced Filmmaking, a series of online instructional videos for aspiring filmmakers.

Course modules vary in length, averaging about a half hour, and can be can be rented for one week via video sharing site Vimeo for $3.95.

Tenth Anniversary of ‘Sideways’ Helps Raise Relief Funds

7 August 2014 7:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation and Direct Relief teamed up to help turn wine into funds, in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the release of wine-themed “Sideways.” The Santa Barbara Wine Auction, the biennial gala event in its fourteenth year, raised $3 million in donations for Direct Relief. It also included a reunion of the stars of “Sideways,” drawing appeal for fans of the comedy.

In the 2004 film, Miles and Jack, played by Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church, respectively, took a trip to Santa Barbara’s wine country and repaired their lives during journey.

The foundation felt that the film’s plot aligned well with their goal of generating funds for Direct Relief through the wine auction. As an organization, Direct Relief aims to provide medical aid and relief to people facing emergency situations around the globe.

“A significant component of that number was contributed by bidders desiring the »

Critical Unfairness: Just When Do We Wave the White Flag?

7 July 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The contradiction in film criticism certainly does not go unnoticed. Sure, there are countless films that are praised and applauded for its excellence in quality and creativity. Unfortunately, the overlooked cinema fare that deserves just as much attention (more so than some of the recognized critically-acclaimed selections on an impressive selection of critics’ and moviegoers’ radars) get lost in the proverbial shuffle. It is simply the professional hazard of the movie industry because not every well-received and standout gem will get its rightful due come major awards season in Hollywood.

Just how many times have we as movie reviewers and/or movie fans become indignant when we realized that the special piece of entertainment we personally and critically cherished came up short and empty in expectations? Again, every smart kid in the classroom cannot get a gold star as we remain a competitive society in the world of celluloid superiority. »

Chef! Movie Recipes For a Feast of Cinema

17 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The release this week of Jon Favreau’s Chef provides a new addition to the popular sub-genre of Food Cinema. From Eat, Drink, Man, Woman (1994) to Julia & Julia (2009), film directors have often created meals so mouth-watering that the thought of another handful of chewy, over-toffeed popcorn makes a mockery of one’s very soul.

Here then is the ultimate HeyUGuide to the ultimate Cine-Banquet, for any budding chefs out there to prepare for like-minded friends (please consult Alexander Payne’s Sideways for your wine selection).

Amuse-bouche: ‘Rillettes du Canard’ Red Dragon (2002)

“Hannibal, confess. What is this divine looking amuse-bouche?” Dr. Lecter is perhaps wise to keep back some of the secrets of the lavish banquet he has prepared for The Baltimore Opera Society. Few of them would suspect that the missing (and talentless) flutist from their own woodwind section is not just the ghost at the feast, but the key ingredient. »

FX Passes On Paul Giamatti’s Drama Pilot Hoke

10 June 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a very interesting time for the FX Network, hasn’t it? Veteran dramas Justified and Sons Of Anarchy have continued to thrive over the years, with the latter show approaching its seventh season. Meanwhile, other series such as The Americans, Louie and Archer are genuine critical success stories, with The Americans receiving high praise for its latest season. The cable network does not look to be slowing down anytime soon, either, as the well-received Fargo wraps up its debut season and upcoming shows like The Strain and Tyrant are getting some pretty solid buzz as well. Unfortunately, there is one promising TV drama pilot that FX has decided to move on from.

That drama pilot is Hoke, which starred Paul Giamatti as Hoke Moseley, a hardboiled and “possibly insane” homicide detective living in the world of pre-chic Miami during the early-1980s. The show was to be »
