The Meyerowitz Stories, Daddy Issues

The Meyerowitz Stories, Daddy Issues

Noah Baumbach director of The Meyerowitz Stories presents for the first time at Cannes Film Festival. This comedy-drama brings a star-studded cast: Dustin Hoffman, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Emma Thompson. Baumbach is a singular filmmaker, he is precise in his writing and an expert. The film feels personal and emotional bringing truthfulness.

Film synopsis: Estranged siblings gather in New York to celebrate their father’s work as an artist.

Netflix obtains this film post-production for distribution. This is the second film Netflix presents at Cannes 70th Anniversary film festival. They are very supportive of the film.

Baumbach created the film for the cinema and has all intention of showing in theaters. He states, “I made this movie independently with independent funding. I shot it on super 16. I made it with the expectation to be screened on the big screen. It is a singular experience that is not going away.” Hoffman did say that the film could be screened at his home cinema. The film received a standing ovation at the end of the world première.

The father and sons relationship is always interesting in the film, Baumbach says, “I have always been interested in the gap between who we think we are, who we want to be and how far that gap really is. Success, professional success, and fame and the arts is a way to explore this. What does success mean and mean to different people is something I wanted to explore in this film.”

The estranged family feels less successful in comparison to the other.  Thompson states, “All those characters except Grace operate from a position of shame. So many human beings feel that so much of the time. We all feel ashamed all of our culture is built around this shaming thing. I think that is why it is so powerful.”

Each character in the film meticulously embraces the story and present Baumbach vision.  Adam Sandler says, “I was attracted to the character and the attracted to the whole movie. I was as excited as ever to be in the movie. I loved it.” Emma Thomas states, “Unlike Adam, I am not from America or that kind of family. I did not have an idea what this is going to be like. I had no idea. It was quite a foreign country to me.” Ben Stiller says, “I was very fortunate to get the call. Then I heard Dustin Hoffman was auditioning for the role of father.” Dustin Hoffman actually passed on the role. He said, “I did not want to play the old man. I felt I was a better fit for the role of the brothers.” His son talked him into playing the role.

This story takes on the roles in families with the many dynamics creating the truthfulness in the film.

This 70th year will continue to evolve film worldwide. Stay tuned here for coverage of events from fashion, red carpet, actresses/actors, and films.

Amanda Marsh, the wife to firefighter Eric Marsh, joined the cast and crew this evening. She has made her message strong and proud in honor of the husband she lost. She has taken her pain and turned it to helping others. She created the Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters. This foundation provides assistance with, “heartbreak at its deepest level, and we have the ability and resources to help others dealing with the same loss and trauma” (Eric Marsh Foundation Website). This year our country is experiencing a loss of over 2 million acres due to wildland fires.  This film brings forward the battle and struggles these families and firefighters face to protect our homes, families, and wildlands.

Only The Brave Phoenix Premiere 4Chion Lifestyle

Tonight the premiere brought Hollywood actors to the Phoenix red carpet. They came to honor these men and to bring awareness to the struggles living their live fighting fires. Josh Brolin, his character is Eric Marsh in the film, in a behind the scenes clip states, “there should be a moment when the audience is educated on how tough it is to be a wildland firefighter.” The firefighters live in the most rugged conditions for weeks. They carry 40-50 lbs packs with their water, meals ready to eat, sleeping gear, and shower infrequently.

Miles Teller, his character is Donut in the film, says, “These guys go all over the country for two weeks at a time. They go home for two days to return for two more weeks. They do this for six to eight months each year. They work their butts off.”  The sacrifice these firefighters and their families make to protect our livelihoods.

Joseph Kosinski, film’s director, wanted to bring the vision to this film “that you do not need to carry a gun to be a hero. What firefighters do. That it is a war a war against mother nature. It felt grounded and real,” he states behind the scenes. This film brings this story to the scene. Eric Marsh brought this municipal firehouse to a Type 1 Crew hotshots.

Filming was in Santa Fé New Mexico for most of the film. The Yarnell part filmed last. James Dale Badge stated this evening, “We filmed Yarnell last. At that moment we had to trust that it was in us as actors. This is our job.” The film’s song, Hold the Light, is by Dierks Bentley, who grew up in Phoenix.  The sacrifice made by many to protect our wildlands, communities, and livelihood presents in this film. This film opens in theaters October 20, 2017. Check your local listing for times and tickets.

Seth Green, actor, and Matthew Senreich created this comedy hit. The series uses action figures and incorporates pop culture parodies. The story draws in audiences of all ages by using the past and present pop culture references.

The team enjoys working together on the series-together. The ability to work with such a creative topic that draws in from pop culture makes this fun instead of work. The work continues to grow and improve each season. Thanks to the talent on the show and the many actors and actresses that take part.

This is the longest running series for Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. The team works hard to keep the stories creative and not become pigeon-holed. They said each day is successful with the crew because they fed off each other’s positive energy and uniqueness.

Acting A Time to Create ~ Lance Lim

Acting A Time to Create ~ Lance Lim

Lance Lim School of Rock Nickelodon Emmys® 4Chion Lifestyle
Lance Lim School of Rock Nickelodeon Emmys®
Emmys® Creative Arts 2016 Red Carpet Lance Lim

Lance Lim joins us on the red carpet at the Emmys®Creative Arts Awards. He plays Zack on School Of Rock at Nickelodeon.

Lim has been acting since the age of nine. His performances include Independence Day: Reassurance, Fresh Off The Boat, and Growing up Fisher.

His current character, Zack, who is reserved and plays the guitar. This provides him the opportunity to create a character that is opposite of his outgoing nature.

“The ability to play characters that are different from his personality and life is the best part of acting,” he says. Working to capture each character he plays is a lot of fun. The crew and actors he works with providing him with great insight into performing his best.

He finds the ability characters have to make an impact on other’s lives a value he cherishes. Hearing from those watching the show that let them know they have been able to overcome a fear means a lot.

His advice to those looking to get into acting is, “do this because you have passion and love for the art. Looking for fame and fortune will not make the hard work, long hours, and dedication fun.” He does this because he loves this. He loves capturing the emotions and characters. His mother taught him to remember at the end of the day you must be happy.

His best advice to making each successful is to smile. At the end of the day, his favorite thing is to go home and hang out with his friends. See him perform Meghan Trainor Like I’m Gonna Lose You Acoustic Cover by Megan Lee ft. Lance Lim here. He has some future projects in the works.

School Of Rock nominated for Outstanding Children’s Program. Voted best dressed at the Emmys® Creative Arts Day 1 by our office.

Telling a Life Story, “What Happened Miss Simone”

Telling a Life Story, “What Happened Miss Simone”

Jayson Jackson What Happened Miss SImone
Emmy’s Creative Arts 2016 Red Carpet Jayson Jackson

Jayson Jackson joins us on the red carpet at the Emmy® Creative Arts Awards. What Happened, Miss Simone? Is a documentary after the personal life of Nina Simone.

Jayson Jackson produced and created, What Happened, Miss Simone, a film that discusses the woman behind the performer. Jayson says, “The story needed to be told and the timing was now” (Dolly).

Jackson states, “The lives of many performers is just their performance. Many forget that they have personal lives, struggles, and moments. This was the time to show that Miss Simone was a strong courageous woman, that lived a personal story.”

Jackson goes on to explain that telling the story required capturing the classical artist that suffered from mental illness and domestic violence. Hercivil rights voice is strong in regards to the movement. Her life impacted millions with her talent and music, but her story will bring honest living. The story reminds us that we are all human beings living and working within our own skin.

The film based on Nina’s diaries, notes she wrote on napkins, newspapers, and hotel pads. This brought the film to the life of Nina Simone. Jackson states, “The best that we can walk away from this film is honesty. That person will have a respect for the artists that honestly wear their emotions on their sleeves.”

Producing this film took on the idea of searching for footage and stories from Simone’s Life. He states, “We did not write a script. We wanted Nina Simone’s life to show us the story.” The film became just that her story. This story is about a strong woman who performes with a talent that allowed her to sing in any genre and understand the music better than some composers.

What Happened, Miss Simone took home 1 Emmy at The Creative Arts for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special.
