How Editing ‘The Walking Dead’ Helped the ‘Midnighters’ Director Make His First Horror Film

23 June 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Julius Ramsay has made his living editing a number of the better genre television shows of the last couple decades, including “Battlestar Galactica,” “Alias,” and now “The Walking Dead.” With an eye toward making his own films, in 2008 he directed a 20-minute short, “Pivot,” that achieved some success on the film festival circuit.

“When I joined ‘The Walking Dead’ in season one as an editor, I expressed an interest in directing,” said Ramsay. “I showed the producers and the network my film, and after working on the show for a few years, I was fortunate enough to earn their trust and get a chance to direct my first episode.”

Ramsay believes editing is a good training ground for directors, forcing you to find the essence of a story and distill it into a series of shots, »

Emmys 2017: TV’s Top Showrunners Pick Their Favorite Shows

21 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Every awards show reflects the tastes of its voting pool. The Golden Globe Awards are voted on by obscure journalists from outlets no one has ever heard of. The People’s Choice Awards are voted on by people.

But the Emmys are voted on by the group whose opinion is most trusted by the folks who make television — other folks who make television. Those are the individuals who understand not only that making a great piece of television is hard, but also why it’s hard.

Showrunners, being the persons in charge, are the TV professionals who have the most holistic view of the craft. »

John McTiernan on why Jean-Claude Van Damme dropped out of the original Predator film

14 June 2017 5:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Even if you are not a film buff, you’ve probably heard that action legend Jean-Claude Van Damme was initially supposed to play the titular alien in the original Predator film. So, what happened?

According to John McTiernan, director of the 1987 original, the answer is far less dramatic than one might have thought. It seems the blame rests solely on the shoulders of Van Damme’s agent at the time. Speaking to Cinemablend, this is what the director had to say:

“We never shot anything with him. It was a complete screw up with his agent, trying to hustle him into a job and didn’t know what the movie was. It’s silly. It was really silly.“

It sounds like actors inclusion was doomed from the start. However, Van Damme has stated in the past that he didn’t want to play a part that covered his face so completely, »

Guilty Pleasure TV: Shows Critics Watch When They Should Be Working — IndieWire Survey

13 June 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is your go-to guilty pleasure viewing?

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

Love what you watch, watch what you love and don’t be guilty to love what you love. Life is too short to have guilty pleasures. Of course, are there things I watch that I know aren’t “quality”? Sure! Any time I watch an episode of “House Hunters” or “House Hunters International” and find myself rooting for an incompatible, self-absorbed couple with an outlandish and indefensible budget to either break up on the spot or to make a housing choice that will surely facilitate a “Money Pit-“style scenario in which their »

The Battlestar Galactica Giggle Fit That Almost Got Mary McDonnell and Katee Sackhoff Fired?!

12 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Syfy's Battlestar Galactica is regarded as one of the best shows produced for television in recent memory. The science fiction drama touched on everything from human emotion to politics, after a devastating attack wiped out the majority of the human race. But what would it look like today? "It's hard to say. We did Battlestar in a very specific moment in time. There was a consensus or marriage of what was going on in the world and the inherent story of the apocalyptic attack was very reticent because it was a post 9/11 attack," creator Ronald D. Moore said at the Battlestar Galactica reunion panel at the Atx TV Festival. "If we were doing it today, we would probably have a lot of those elements to »

‘Room 104’ Premiere: Mark Duplass Stuns Atx with Genre-Bending HBO Anthology Series

11 June 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jay and Mark Duplass are creators who don’t like to be put in a box, even if they’re making six hours of television set within the same four walls.

Room 104,” the new HBO anthology series from the Duplass brothers, tells individual, episodic stories in each of its 12 half-hour installments, and all 12 are set within the same cheap, dingy hotel room. The first episode, which premiered at the Atx TV Festival Saturday evening, is a lot closer to Mark Duplass’ work in indie films “Creep” and “The One I Love” than the brothers’ former HBO comedy.

During a panel discussion following the episode, Duplass said he felt inspired by the constraints of the premise.

“I have something like 218 ideas in a Word document on my computer,” Duplass said.

Noting how it felt like he was back making low-budget indie films, Duplass said he wrote seven of the 12 episodes »

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Reunion: Edward James Olmos Says Series was Better Crafted than ‘Blade Runner’ and 7 More Highlights

10 June 2017 8:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s only been eight years since “Battlestar Galactica” ended, but based on fans’ fervor at the reunion, one would think the cast had been waiting 150,000 years. A full Paramount Theater in Austin, TX greeted creator Ronald D. Moore and stars, Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, and Michael Trucco for the Atx TV Festival’s closing night panel.

That being said, the cast was feeling nostalgic, and many references were made to how much has changed in the world since they were shooting the iconic sci-fi series. Blockbuster video rentals, internet cafes, and online message boards all played a big part of the memories, and below we’ve collected seven of the most notable anecdotes.
