  1. Nice interview. She does some interesting art. She started in the 1960s in L.A. and is still going strong at 80. https://hyperallergic.com/518417/feminist-icon-judy-chicago-on-resisting-the-cycle-of-erasure
  2. Complaints of art show about non-conforming homosexuals that didn't have a more diverse spectrum of transgender, colors and handicap non-conforming homosexuals. https://hyperallergic.com/502730/art-after-stonewall-leslie-lohman-museum While making my 6 hour film 'Offshoots,' a social documentary study of Instagram, I focused a good deal on non-conformers. That is people that do not conform to societal standards. (And 'non-conforming' is a title that many proudly call themselves.) I found the odd thing about the non-conformers is; while they refuse to conform to society, they demand everyone else conforms to their demands. Well, that is how it is in 2019...art must be done on a formula to satisfy the critics.
  3. When it opened in January 1970, Westbeth became the first and largest federally subsidized artists’ colony in the country. https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-inside-new-yorks-remaining-artists-housing
  4. Proceeds from Sales of Sculptures & Assemblages to Benefit City of Hope Writer-director Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Cloverfield), Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth, ASC (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network), and cinematographer Ernie Holzman, ASC (Without a Trace, Cora Unashamed, Thirtysomething) present “Ernie Holzman: Life ReFocused,” an art show celebrating film cameras and lenses from the 20th century. The event takes place on November 12, from 4 – 7 p.m. at RED Studios Hollywood, where assemblages and sculptures created by Holzman will be for sale, as well as a rare print of the iconic set of Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window.” All proceeds benefit cancer research at City of Hope. After being diagnosed with Stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011, Holzman underwent surgery and two rounds of chemotherapy. Unable to work, a good friend gifted Holzman with a collection of vintage filmmaking equipment. The cinematographer deconstructed every camera and lens, and was ultimately inspired by the aesthetic beauty and elegance of the equipment, which had been commonplace in his career, to create art. By selling the pieces he has designed, Holzman wants to “pay it forward” and acknowledge the life-saving work of Dr. Barry Rosenbloom at Tower Oncology. Holzman told American Cinematographer magazine, “The opportunity to create art, and ultimately have this showing, has not only been enormously healing for me, but has given my life greater meaning than I have ever known.” City of Hope is a world leader in the research and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other serious diseases. They deliver scientific miracles that make lives whole again. Founded in 1913, City of Hope is one of only 49 comprehensive cancer centers in the nation, as designated by the National Cancer Institute. The event is open to the public. RED Studios Hollywood is located at 864 N. Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, 90038. No RSVP is necessary to attend.
  5. Macbeth Trailer IMDB Link http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2884018/?ref_=nm_flmg_cin_4 "Macbeth, a Thane of Scotland, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself" Director Justin Kurzel Cinematographer Adam Arkapaw I watched Macbeth on the cinema 3 weeks ago and was very reluctant to write about it because I did not know what to say about it as it made me think about cinematography, art, filmmaking, life and everything else. However, I watched it today on the cinema again and I could not help but writing about the movie. There are sometimes when art and filmmaking come together, we have examples from the early cinema (Berlin) to contemporary cinema (Waking Life). In my opinion, the movies which mix art and cinema usually do not have a very good distribution and it is very difficult to see them out of the cinema festivals (Sitges, Sundance, etc). What we have on the screen nowadays is a movie which tries to bring that to the masses and it works perfectly. A couple of years ago we had a very interesting adaptation called "Anna Karenina", directed by Joe Wright, Mr. Wright decided to do something absolutely different and staged everything as if it were a play, it was a very risky movement but it was one of the most fenomenal movies of the year. Although "Macbeth" does not go that far as to staged everything, Justin Kurzel created a universe where he introduces art, paintings, movement, magic realism and plays with the characters' fates as if he were a demiurge, Shakespeare himself but using all the possible imagination to produce a stunning piece of art so it is as risky as "Anna Karenina" was. Imagination and imaginative, those are the words that I would use to describe a movie that should be in the MOMA and the TATE on a permanent exhibition to show people how to create a world through images which create sensations. The very first act and the third act are just marvellous pieces of art by themselves, the central act is a bit less spectacular because it involves Macbeth's madness and it is told in a more narrative - linear way but it is stunning by itself. I think that this movie deserves being seen on a big screen so you can just be immersed in it. Of course, there were people who left the screen room where I was watching it (in both cases) but those who remained got a beautiful reward. Thanks to all the crew who made this movie possible if you ever read this. Have a good day!
  6. Lost River, directed by Ryan Gosling and photographed by Benoit Debie Lost River - Trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8ngDiG9V8w I do not know how to start this post as I am still in shock after having watched "Lost River". I have been trying to elaborate my thoughts about the movie for quite a while and I think I am unable to create a linear narration so I will throw them all here for anybody who might be interested in experiencing the first film directed by Ryan Gosling. Lost River is a very difficult movie to classify in our "tag" world, somebody could argue that it is an "auteur" movie with all the connotations that that word brings to the table, some others could say that it is an experimental movie with a narrative arch which brings the spectator from "a" to "b". However, I firmly believe that it is the result of Ryan Gosling's thoughts, desires and influences as a filmmaker. Ryan Gosling knows exactly what he wants to tell and he gives to the visual part of the story a very specific weight, which is considerably 200% of it. It is very clear to me that he knew how the movie had to look like and in his inner interior (is that right? :D) he wanted it to be controversial and bold, both (one of the production companies is called "Bold films"), and for him to express his voice (and what a voice!) he had to bring a cinematographer whose work has been always controversial and stylistic, Benoit Debie. Mr. Debie might not be a super well known cinematographer but he definitely has a very interesting career, from Fabrice Du Welz and Gaspar Noe to Harmony Korine and now Ryan Gosling, Benoit Debie knows how to surpass everybody's expectations and how to create amazing and bold moods with a lot of colour and desires, always within the very thin line which separates darkness from "darkness" and being successful all the time! He knows very well how to manipulate the audience with the palette of colours that he uses, as in Irreversible (2002) and Colt 45 (2014) or Spring Breakers (2012) to name a few. He is even working with Wim Wenders now on The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez. Regarding Ryan Gosling's skills as a director, there are certainly some gaps in the narration of the movie (as in any) but he tells the story in an impressive way. Definitely he learnt a lot from the directors he has worked for, Terrence Malick, Nicolas Winding Refn, Derek Cianfrance and Shane Black, etc. The way he frames, the way he choses the focal lengths, how he follows the characters or what he wants to not show are things that only a very mature filmmaker can do, and let us say that "Lost River" is his FIRST feature film ever. And he is a very very good actors' director! Ben Mendelsohn is really good and also the rest of the cast. With a very difficult script, Ryan Gosling makes the actors feel real and linked to the world where they are, a world of decadence and sadness, but also with a little bit of hope. I know Ryan Gosling got a lot of bad critics with "Lost River" but it is my impression that those critics were that bad because of Ryan Gosling himself, specially in Cannes. I am pretty sure that if any other filmmaker in the world had presented a FIRST MOVIE like this one in Cannes, everybody had been clapping at it. I could digress all day long about the movie but I think that it is better if you just watch it and experience it. I am very glad I saw it and I am looking forward to receiving my blu ray copy some time soon. Have a good day!
  7. I'm 16 years old... Yes somewhat young but I have lots of inspiration and I'd say I'm fairly talented with multi-media. I've been learning after effects for over a year now, using it to edit Call of Duty gameplay which particularly involves VFX, Motion tracking, editing techniques(art), cinematic, time-remapping and editing of-course. It is actually very impressive how the Call of Duty editing community has mastered after effects with call of duty footage. Any of you should absolutely take the time to check out some very talented editors; if you're interested i'll refer you to some of them! It is a whole new level of editing and I'm grateful to have started with something without having to use IRL footage from a camera. I could now apply myself to IRL footage and such. I truly want to master a position in the film industry. I'm so inspired by some films and the art of cinematography mixed with editing.. Whether it's an editor, cinematographer, camera-man, or even the whole package. Whether it's to my own profit, a big company, a festival.. I want to learn all about cameras and technique just like I did for editing. Question #1: I'd like to know about what sort of education and/or diploma is needed to get a job at a big company or a big film project.. Those camera men/cinematographers who reach Hollywood; what got them there? Was it recognition and connections or was it schooling/diplomas etc. ? A few examples of cinematographers/camera men ? Question #2: What camera aspects should I look into? (I'm new to the whole thing) I have done some research on the Panasonic Lumix GH3 and came to mind that there are so many features and aspects to reconsider before I buy a camera, a film maker uses that camera and there's a very nice outcome (a slight panoramic, film looking, well toned).. References to some books, youtubers or links would be great. That's it for now... I hope I'm not asking for too much, I guess I could tell I'm pretty passionate about this lol. Thanks ! John from MTL, QC
