Filmmaking Stuff - How To Make, Market and Sell Your Movie
A very different generation of intellectuals in the 1960s and '70s underwrites the later forms of architecture I discuss. Informed by Marxism, the work of Paulo Freire, a sociologist, or Augusto Boal, a radical playwright, or Glauber Rocha, a film-maker, understands Brazil as an essentially poor society that must be recognized as such.36 Such writers stood in opposition to the utopianism of the earlier generation and its projects such as Brasilia, which they regarded as facile and self-serving. In place of grand utopian projects erected in the name of those in power, they proposed engagement with the poor and dispossessed in the form of cultural acts that would leave no material monument, but (they hoped) would quietly revolutionize Brazilian culture. In Boal's tough and radical work, which has been widely performed outside Brazil, theatre becomes a tool for the resolution of conflict in real-life situations. The 'theatre of the oppressed' sets out to empower those without power, and...
Within design, a technique has emerged that builds on the roles of contemporary art, literature, and filmmaking. Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby are pioneers of critical design, which they define as design that asks carefully crafted questions and makes us think, as opposed to design that solves problems or finds answers. 9 Dunne is a professor of Design Interactions, an interdisciplinary program at the Royal College of Art. This indicates the significance of critical design within design culture and suggests that its influence will grow further.
Yet they do not work in isolation. The best museums will form a planning team or working group to develop themes or overarching educational messages. It is not unusual for the planning team to be augmented by outside consultants. Historians and exhibit designers, if not on staff, can be brought on to work with the museum team to develop the story line for exhibitions. Scriptwriters, filmmakers, and interactive media specialists will also be engaged in planning and developing the exhibitions and educational programs. The value of a team-based approach is in bringing varied skills to the planning. And at this point in your planning there is value in considering many options and weighing diverse points of view. It will take your museum a considerable amount of time to define the intellectual framework many ideas will be debated and explored and in the end you will have a strong product reflective of various stakeholders.
there has been a direct-to-consumer distribution . . . reaching four million, with 13,000 exhibitions in 45 states, showing at schools, churches, clubs, plants, factories and YMCAs . . . with salesmen tie-ups and report system. . . Educate the people concerning your product, increase your sales through returns on your film investment by keeping your prints busy. (NFCI, 1921, 3(28), n.p.)
The dismantling of the Trust paved the way for the emergence of the classic Big Five studios of the golden age of Hollywood, a group which included Twentieth Century-Fox, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), Warner Brothers, RKO, and Paramount. Adolph Zukor of Paramount pioneered a system vertically integrating the three major stages of filmmaking production, distribution, and exhibition - under one company, a structure which began to be emulated by the others. He established the star system with lucrative contracts to talent such as Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and Gloria Swanson, fostering simultaneously both the studio's reputation and consumer loyalty. These stars of the silent film era, along with Charlie Chaplin, through the power of pantomime, christened the modern film industry as a universal language of mass culture which transgressed boundaries of cultural and linguistic difference in the polyglot immigrant working classes of America, the cinema's main audience.
Purchase College is one of SUNY's 64 tertiary educational institutions. It is located 30 miles (50 kilometres) from New York City near White Plains and New Rochelle on what was a 500-acre (200-hectare) farm. The college has a general education programme but it is best known for its conservatory programmes in theatre arts, film-making and music, and the visual arts. The first students were admitted in 1968 into the Continuing Education Program juniors were admitted in 1971, and the first freshmen in 1973. The development of the campus has gone in fits and starts enrolments have fluctuated and so has its funding.
Guy Debord, a filmmaker and leading member of the Situationist International, is perhaps now best known for his polemical account of the power of the image in Society oj the Spectacle (1967). The account of the new visual condition of social experience which Debord develops here revolves around the concept of 'the spectacle', which describes the absolute autonomy of the image in consumer society. But despite the impression given by the illustrations added in the English translations, it is not primarily concerned with technology since, according
Perhaps the label environmental art should be reserved for describing the overarching theme of an artist's works and not the type of art he or she produces. This would include uncountable artists through the ages coming from a wide variety of disciplines. In my opinion, environmental artists include Ansel Adams (a photographer), Joseph Turner (a watercolorist), Myoung Ho Lee (a photographer), and Hayao Miyazaki (a filmmaker). Like many other environmental artists they challenged our perceived relationship with the environment, studied an area throughout an age showing how that environment changed, or even enlightened their audience to the wonders that are a part of our environment, all without making the environment a casualty of their work.
Once famed as the 'Pearl of Arabia', the old walled city of Sana'a in south-western Arabia has been continuously inhabited for over 2,500 years (figure 5.1). It is one of the world's most ancient surviving cities and, arguably, the world's longest continually inhabited city. It was nominated to be among new seven wonders of the world by Bernard Weber, a Swiss filmmaker, who has launched a web-based poll1 to define seven new symbols of humanity's greatest achievements of the last 2000 years. 'A remarkably impressive architectural wonder and one of the most significant historical sites in the Middle East', Weber said of the old city of Sana'a.2 The city is dominated by
Among the books we label cultural studies, two concern popular culture and the city as imagined in literary and film texts, respectively, and both were published in the mid-1990s (Zha 1995 Zhang 1996). The former was written by a scholar who lived in China until 1981 and could build her ideas - on Beijing intellectuals' moods and ethos, the new politics of culture and commercialism, and the emerging cosmopolitanism and consumerism of the big city - on her trust and talks with old friends and their acquaintances. Her subjects include television soap opera, urban planning, filmmaking, the mass media, pornography, and sexual politics. The latter work takes as its theme psychic experiences of the city, as configured in the imagination of writers in modern China, and focuses on topics such as space, time, and gender in the country's two most modern cities, Beijing and Shanghai.
This was designed as a small cinema and art gallery for the Film Makers Co-operative and London Electronic Arts in a trendy location within then 'up and coming' Hoxton. Contrived to look as if the accommodation is in two separate buildings, the blue, composite brick concrete structure (which is a composite of both precast and in-situ concrete) has an intentional heavy, industrial quality whilst the large windows promote a continuous 'dialogue' between interior and exterior. It is worth a visit if, as a contrast to the manifestations of global capitalism at the heart of the City, you are prowling peripheral areas in search of authenticity. However, the cinema went bust in 2002 and the place now has other uses.
With Its sights focused on experimentation, the pavilion wends you through the contributions of 55 firms, starting with six Masters of Experiment, including, among others, Gehry Partners Herzog & de Meuron, with artist Ai Welwei and Morphosis. The proliferation of boards, models, and installations sucks you deeper into the labyrinth of the disjointed pavilion. Past the I Chlng reader, you might find solace in American architect Ben Nicholson's Studies of Labyrinths, happiness from Los Angeles's Ball-Nogues Studio's wispy wave made of pink cord, or amusement in European filmmakers lla Beka and Louise Lemoine's Koolhaas HouseLife, a film that follows a busy housekeeper on her tour of the leaky Bordeaux retreat Rem Koolhaas designed 10 years ago. But enough already It seems like the Italians just don't know when to stop
