Do you dream of lending your voice to the next great animated classic? Casting director Jen Rudin has worked on dozens of animated features and knows exactly what it takes to rock those (human or otherwise) characters. On Tuesday, July 28, Rudin will be joining Backstage for a special webinar about auditioning for animated projects. Log in from anywhere in the country, and learn what you need to know about the fun (and creative) field of animation voiceover. You may know Rudin from her popular monthly column, Speak Easy, right here on Backstage. As the owner of Jen Rudin Casting, the long-time CD is known for her work on scores of films including “The Incredibles,” “The Princess and the Frog,” and “Meet the Robinsons.” Additionally, her book “Confessions of a Casting Director” offers actors an invaluable look inside the audition room. We are very excited to host Rudin for this unique educational opportunity. »
Today, composer Danny Elfman turns 62. Elfman is one of the most brilliant and prolific film composers of our time (if not The most), so to celebrate his 62nd birthday, let’s take a look at his greatest hits: •Ever heard of a little show called “The Simpsons”? Well, Danny Elfman composed the music for that show, as well as for all “Simpsons” movies and video games. •”Silver Linings Playbook” is a masterpiece, in my humble opinion. Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, David O’Russell; these are the names credited for this remarkable film. The truth is, “Silver Linings” might have fallen flat if it weren’t for Danny Elfman, who worked as score producer on the greatest film of 2012. •Without the score composed by Danny Elfman, “Desperate Housewives” would be just a bunch of housewives lying to each other, housewives killing people, housewives just being overall desperate.

Without having read any articles or plot info online I figured I would take a crack at what I believe is happening in the upcoming Tomorrowland film.
There are certain truths that are self-evident in the trailers thus far and I wanted get to the bottom of it. First off, we see a young girl that finds a coin in the middle of a room which allows her to seemingly be transported to another place and time. However, there is a little more to it than that. In the second trailer we see more glimpses of Tomorrowland before vanishing a few seconds later.
This indicates that the coin is projecting another reality on top of the one she is actually walking through at the time. Looking back through the second trailer it looks as though the projections may be linked geographically via some Gps coordinate tracker.

Like almost everyone, I was a huge fan of the first Avengers movie. I've been talking about "Age of Ultron" for months now and it's finally here! This movie follows the plot of a peacekeeping program gone wrong, and how the famous team of superheroes tries to save the world from chaos. Superheroes, action scenes, and the beautiful Chris Evans. What else do you want in a movie?
2. 'Pitch Perfect 2'
Comedy, girl power, and a cappella music: three of my favorite things. In this sequel, the Barden Bellas enter an international singing competition, which has never been won by an American group before. If it is anything like the first film, "Pitch Perfect 2" is sure to be an instant hit. With it's catchy songs (I totally listened to the first soundtrack on repeat for weeks), incredible cast (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, »

Big Hero 6 is more Walt Disney Animation Studios' film than a Marvel flick - at least for most of its running time. And that's no bad thing.
Loneliness has been a growing thread in the last few films from Walt Disney Animation Studios. And whilst, at first glance, Big Hero 6 is a very different turn that's been taken, it bears some familiar themes, explored from a different perspective.
If Wreck-It Ralph, then, gave us the extraordinary Vanellope von Schweetz (still probably my favourite new Disney character of recent times) and Frozen homed in on two sisters torn apart, Big Hero 6 turns to a boy genius by the name of Hiro. Courtesy of an impressive opening sequence, it's clear that Hiro is a young man schooled in BBC 2's Robot Wars, as he takes his latest invention into a robot battle, with his 'bots' emerging victorious.
