Using “literally” incorrectly is literally the most annoying thing.

I admit, I recently changed my perspective about filmmaking tax incentives. It’s a race to the bottom and no states should offer it. But, until that day, Los Angeles needs to keep our industry from running away. So this is excellent news for us. I hope we produce lots of fantastic films in 2015!
"Today Gov. Jerry Brown and California Legislators reached a deal to expand California’s film and TV tax-credit program from its current amount at $100 million to $330 million a year for the next five years, more than tripling the funding available to productions. While this falls short of the hoped-for $400 million mark, this represents a huge victory for the California entertainment community.
The bill scraps the current lottery system in favor of a program that would allocate tax credits based on how many jobs projects would create. AB 1839 also allows more projects to qualify, including most one-hour drama series and big-budget studio features.
Congratulations to all who took the time to let their voices be heard, whether through letters, social media posts, visits to Sacramento, and to those who rallied others in the entertainment industry to support the passage of AB 1839. Together we have the power to affect significant change, and bring our jobs home!
This is a fascinating short read about the Behind the Scenes of Dirty Dancing.
Today I was an actress or something
The scene took place at a video village, and they decided to throw in a script supervisor.
So while my friend Edica hooked me up with a fresh face, I was telling the Sound Guy and 2nd AC “44D is next up on the slate”
Now I can say I’ve had the pleasure of “acting” alongside Milo Ventimiglia
Tomorrow I’m working with a Tiger and a Monkey! Wish me luck! Goodnight 🌙
While we are setting up, I thought about this reflective table and the glasses that will have white wine in them…Will this mess with VFX? I’m really not sure, but after initiating a quick dialogue, we decided to use a black table cloth and have the actors keep the wine in front of their bodies, just to make it easy.
Martin Kitrosser, Script Supervising Inglourious Basterds 2009.
He’s worked with Tarantino on Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill : Volume I (2003), Kill Bill : Volume II (2004), Death Proof (2007), Django Unchained (2012).
He also script supervised Dumb & Dumber, and patiently worked his way towards a great career. I wonder if I could assist him? I made a short film with the crew from Django, Perhaps I should ask. If it works out, that would be cool. I’ll blog about it and let you know.
It’s raining! And I’m thankful for a plethura of reasons:
1) It’s the last scene of our entire shoot, which requires fire- and it hasn’t rained for months. So while the director is a little disappointed, I am happy for the safety the rain provides in this drought
2)I’m happy that I script supervise with an iPad, and not a laptop or paper-binder. I can easily cover my iPad with a ziplock, and it still reads my finger strokes. A laptop or paper would not bode so well.
3)I’m just happy for each and every drop!
