I would rather be a failure on my own terms than a success on someone else’s. That’s a difficult statement to live up to, but then I’ve always believed the way you affect your audience is more important than how many of them there are.
Great job internet!
Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.
A bottle of fake blood used during the filming of The Shining.
This bottle has been kept for over three decades by the parents of Lisa and Louise Burns, who played the Grady twins in the film. It was given to them as a memento of their time working on the movie.
They recall being asked to lie down in the hallway set, and that the blood, nicknamed “Kensington Gore”, was poured over them from a jug. Neither remembers being particularly bothered by the nature of the scene.
I’ve just started a band called Kensington Gore so you all can back off, thanks!
We’re Just Making Movies
I didn’t know Sarah personally, but we did work together, in so far as we both worked on The Vampire Diaries, she in Atlanta and I in Los Angeles. Last week, Sarah died tragically & needlessly due to unsafe working conditions and possibly gross negligence when she was hit by an oncoming train during the shoot of a movie called Midnight Rider.
If you are in the film industry or want to be in the film industry, please do yourself a favor and read up on all of the links i listed below. Do not under any circumstances allow yourself to be put into a position that could injure you or at the very worst end your life. It’s just entertainment. Protect yourself because at the end of the day the people who should be looking out for you might be too concerned with coming in under budget and/or getting their stupid shot.
This is a dream business and we all do this for the love of the game but at what point does it become so virtually pointless and stupid. It’s just a movie. It will always just be a movie. Rest in peace, Sarah.
You are a sentence
and I am a semicolon
begging you to go on.
Editing a scene where they shot both actors coverage simultaneously, which is nice because the reactions feel more organic. That being said, it’s interesting to see how much I still have to carve out moments and break-up the natural rhythm of their conversation. Cinematic rhythm and natural rhythm are two distinct things.
