9/11, A Remembrance

So…9/11/01…I was in San Diego, participating in an actors’ showcase with the Robert Wald Studio.
The next morning Jean burst into my room. “Reed! Wake up! We’re under attack!” I rustled a bit and went back to sleep.

A few minutes later she came back. Her voice was another octave higher. Then, they started to play clips of the first plane hitting…over…and…over…on TV.

SXSW Film Reviews: Conan O’Brien the Barbarian vs. Morgan Spurlock the Un-Shyster

Conan O’Brien has a big head. Literally AND figuratively, as apparent in the new documentary Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop, that premiered this spring at SXSW 2011. We all heard the stories about Conan being booted off TV and Leno coming back.

The Grammys vs the Oscars-Appealing to a Younger Audience

“Want to go to a Grammy party tonight?” my friend Sarah asked. I said no. I was fasting and on the the fifth day of the Master Cleanse: a maple syrup, lemon and cayenne pepper concoction, and the only food I was allowed for the duration.

SHEENGATE: Somebody Bring Back Brittany Spears’s Vagina

There’s something critically wrong with the consciousness of America as a whole and in this (unique) case I cannot blame the fact that six companies control 96% of the world’s media.

1 Sundance = 2 Revolutions

Robert Redford said that Sundance 2011 is one of the best festivals yet. While the festival was very exciting, it wasn’t until I detected something serious brewing that I began to think he may be right.

Dear Academy: I Want the 3 Plus Hours You Stole From My Life Back

James Franco, whose immense success I will never understand, showed up as his character from Pineapple Express. He had not an ounce of energy, charisma, or humor and was clearly stoned on some seriously fine medical marijuana.

Sensational Scenes and Sounds by Smokie Lanark

Let’s be honest. I am a movie whore. I will watch anything. Critically acclaimed or abominably cheesy, I am not a movie snob.

I Almost Went to Grammy Jail!

22 ALL Access Grammy passes were fake and I had one of them. I didn’t know of course. No, really, I didn’t.

Live Show Review: Trevor Hall CD Release Party

Trevor Hall is one of those amazingly gifted musicians you have to see live to get the full experience! He started the show with a tribal chant that quickly reeled in a large crowd filled with many friends and family. By the second song, Trevor, Chris Steele on drums, and “Super” Mario on bass took the audience on a sonically delicious, lyrically nutritious, 75 minute, reggae n roots influenced, spiritual journey.

Interview with Yuri Evlin (part 2)

Making movies is a collaborative effort. It is like a military operation: making a plan and following it through. I have found that, with my own films, I never give enough responsibility to anyone to make them a detrimental part of the schedule.

Grooving Hearts and Electric Art: A Slice of Composer and Painter J.D. Shultz

DA: What inspires you and who are some of your creative influences?

JD: The simple blessing of unlimited creativity in my blood is my biggest inspiration. My earliest influences are Ric Ocasek, Brian Wilson, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, The Cure, The Clash, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran Janes Addiction Parliament/Funkadelic, and the Çhili Peppers.

Interview with Yuri Elvin (part 1)

1. You’ve been a producer, an actor, below-the-line crew… What do you like to do most? Why?

Looking at filmyurielvin.JPGing as a whole I’ve found producing to be the most challenging. Unless you own the intellectual property or are a part of point participation, it can feel as if you are just making someone else’s film.

Letter From Editor

Welcome to the Film and Music Forum!

Posted by Editor at 1 January, 2011, 2:30 am

Welcome to the Film and Music Forum. We are excited for you to join our community of independent filmmakers, musicians, and artists. Here we share our favorite ideas, experiences, articles, blogs, short films, trailers, and webisodes. We'd love for you to join in the conversation. At the end of every article, you may leave comments. If you'd like to send us your own contributions, please email: editor@filmandmusicforum.com.

This website was born at the end of January 2009, on the long drive back from Sundance (Park City Utah to Los Angeles). With renewed energy and in high filmmaking spirits, ready to go home and conquer Hollywood we got to thinking. What could we do differently this year, in our ever changing technological society, to promote ourselves and our projects?

We thought about it and decided that every filmmaker, musician and artist, in this day and age, needs an online presence to share his or her work. We also thought about how we know so many amazingly talented people in our combined 25 years in Los Angeles and in the entertainment business. What better way to do something pro-active than start a website to share our own work AND the contributions of all our talented colleagues? As they say, it takes a village, and isn't the very nature of being a filmmaker collaborative? Thus, Film and Music Forum was born.

In this forum we cover news, events, exhibits, screenings, film festivals and shows. We have columnists and bloggers talking about writing, directing, painting, sculpting, playing music, managing bands, and just about every aspect of the entertainment business. Share, learn, read, enjoy, and by all means, if you see something you like, send that person a note and check out their website. This Forum is meant to be an interactive place of sharing, discovering, and promoting talent. We want YOU to be a part!

Welcome again, and thanks for visiting. Come back soon!

Sincerely,
Rebekah Sindoris
Editor - Film and Music Forum
