Vin Diesel constantly ran into roadblocks during his early years in Hollywood due to his ambiguous ethnicity. As a result, Diesel chronicled his plight due to his racial ambiguity with the 20-minute short “Multi-Facial.” Written by, directed by, and starring Diesel, “Multi-Facial” depicts Diesel’s character going to different casting directors, “being told he’s not black enough for black roles and not white enough for white roles”. When Diesel appears to be taking a break with the opportunity to play a Latino, he’s out of luck as he can’t speak Spanish.

“Multi-Facial” was produced for $3,000 and shot in three days, debuting at the Cannes Film Festival in 1995. Thanks to the warm reception “Multi-Facial” received at Cannes, Diesel was able to follow up on his short film with his feature debut, “Strays.” He also wrote and starred in “Strays,” a crime drama about a bouncer (Diesel) looking for a change after living a life as a petty drug dealer. The film earned a Grand Jury Prize nomination at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and more attention at Cannes.

Meanwhile, “Multi-Facial” found its way to director Steven Spielberg. According to Diesel’s profile in The Hollywood Reporter, Spielberg was so impressed with the short film — as well as a three-page letter Diesel wrote to the Oscar-winning filmmaker — that he cast Diesel as an Italian-American soldier, PFC Adrian Caparzo, in his World War II epic “Saving Private Ryan”.

Surf’s most beloved man is an old phrase that’s been around, but in this case, it’s true!

A kind of melancholy descends on the last episode of Lost Tapes, the 11-part series that documents Kelly Slater’s 2019.

It’s fall and we’re in Hossegor, France, as Slater struggles with a series of ninth places, abysmal by his standards.

The weather is nice in Aquitaine at this time of the year, the tourists have mostly left, the small summer swells give way to the Atlantic muscle, but the sky is grayer, the days shorter.

It’s a time when even the most optimistic soul feels a little unease.

The episode focuses on his thirty-three relationships with Stephen “Belly” Bell, an ex-pat Australian glazier who has lived in France since 1989, and who became Leo Fioravanti’s stepfather after he found love with the mum Serena, spectacularly assembled from the Italian. .

“It feels like the end of an era to me,” Slater says, as he stays at Belly’s gorgeous Cubist beach house. “Belly only has one event left in his career as a tour manager…he’s been there for all the world titles I’ve won. I love Belly. He’s my best friend. He’s a consistent person and a great guy. I can trust him with anything and everything. Everyone should have a Belly in their life. I’m lucky to have had him in my life all these years!”

I know that feeling.

Belly also owns a part of my heart.

During the two years that I lived in Hossegor, through the gray coat of the long winters and the saturated golds of the too short summers, he was kinder than necessary.

Maybe it was our mutual love of boobs, short trips to Spain, and sand-bottom whistling tubes that slammed like thunder on the city sandbars, but it felt real.

Belly moved from Victoria to France in the mid-1980s and set up a glassware shop called Euroglass. He had the contract to build all the Quiksilver boards for Europe, which in the days of the honey surf industry at the turn of the century meant everyone came to Belly for the boards, Kelly Slater and sixties icon Miki Dora included.

Because he was Australian, and more Australian than anyone I had ever met (although he was fluent in French), Belly was the hub around which surfers from that country revolved during the European leg of the tour. .

Once, Belly asked me to put a tail pad on a board that was destined for the Quicksilver flagship store in Paris. It was apparently a former Slater board, but that was not the case.

I put the K-Grip pad on at a twisted angle and even though it would have been justified for it to be restless and cruel, it gave me a fatherly smile and said, “You idiot.

“Loved by all” is an old phrase to throw away, but it’s really true.

Stephen Bell, a short man with a bald head and baggy pants, is all-hearted, egoless.

Did you know he rocks too?

Seeing his short film on the big screen has been a long time coming for director Matt Prazak, who grew up in Leduc.

Content of the article

After filming in July 2021, Flight will finally find its audience when it premieres at the Edmonton International Film Festival (EIFF) on September 26.

The film stars Shaun Johnston of heartland fame and his real son Shea, and follows a man in his sixties living with Alzheimer’s disease and his struggle to decipher the world around him. It was recently nominated for four Rosie Awards at the upcoming Alberta Media Production Industries Association awards, including Best Male Performance and Best Scripted Production Under 30 Minutes.

“I personally love telling these intense little stories, but I always try to capture them as big as possible. I tell everyone I’m always on the hunt for the big little moment,” Prazak said.

Prazak grew up in Leduc alongside his three siblings and decided to pursue film after enrolling in Media Studies and the Film and Television Broadcasting program at Leduc Composite High School. From there, Prazak headed to the film and video production program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary, where he has resided ever since.

Content of the article

“I remember going to Leduc cinemas a lot as a kid and falling in love with what I was watching,” Prazak said. “Leduc has always been in my heart. I feel like a lot of my projects are influenced by my time [there].”

Prazak specializes in drama, where he finds he can accomplish a lot with little and squeeze out the best possible performances from character-driven roles. His main directing influences include Richard Linklater and Sarah Polley.

Along with the film’s release, Prazak is working with Anything for Alzheimer’s to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and the Northwest Territories.

“I always felt like it had to be a two-for-one scenario where I wanted to do the short but I also wanted to do some fundraising and try to achieve something bigger. [to] combine art with activism,” Prazak said.

Last month, Prazak won season 15 of CBC’s Short Film Face Off for his film Phone, earning him $30,000 for his next production – a feature he plans to announce soon.

“It’s essential for me to tell stories in Alberta and have any impact on the independent scene here,” Prazak said. “I’d like to do things that can be shown to a wider audience in Leduc and then hopefully catch the attention of a few young kids and show them that it’s something possible.”

Los Angeles, Calif.–(Newsfile Corp. – Sept. 12, 2022) – Phony Content, a digital production house whose writers produce 1-2 new scripted text message stories for social media every day, announced that it has finished filming Lapping. The new short, which started as a Phony Texts and racked up more than 15 million views before being adapted for theaters, dramatizes what happens when a man breaks into what he believes being his best friend’s girlfriend’s apartment.

“We are very happy to bring Lapping, one of our most popular Phony Texts episodes, on the big screen so our fans can see the live action unfold outside of the chat bubbles,” says Jesse Brooks, co-founder of Phony Content. “We had a great time creating the narrative and seeing it come to life as a movie. Our next goals are to build Lapping into a feature film over the next few years and to continue to develop more Phony Texts stories into larger productions.

This production follows another of Phony Content’s projects, iBible, which was accepted at SXSW 2020. iBible focuses on bringing Bible stories to Gen Z audiences through text messages and videos. as well as fictitious FaceTimes.

“This was one of the toughest projects we’ve undertaken,” says Phony Content. “It tested our team’s creative skills in adapting the world’s most recognizable stories into our format. How do you take Noah and show him learning to build the Ark on YouTube? We could not have accomplished the project without our hardworking and creative team of editors and designers.”

Phony Content, which manages syndicated programming for Phony Texts in seven languages ​​(German, French, English, Dutch, Arabic, Spanish and Norwegian), has also launched its new romance channel in France: “L’amour au bout du fil”. or “Love on the line.” It is the first syndicated program to feature Phony Content’s love stories.

“Our short series, which airs on Snapchat Discover, follows scripted and dramatized conversations between characters on Snapchat,” Phony Content explains. “Gen Z in particular will relate to the banter and drama on our show, as our stories are highly relevant and relevant to our real-life relationships with our screens.”

In a bid to develop more short films and larger projects, Phony Content will also expand into a new office in Echo Park. With the additional space, the company plans to workshop more ideas as well as shoot productions of stories from bogus textsincluding one that will go into production in the fall of 2022. With the new office, the company will foster a larger, more collaborative space that will allow Phony Content’s editors and design team to manage all aspects of an in-house production.

Phony Content invites everyone, regardless of generation, to discover his comedic stories on social media. “Whether we’re in our 20s or 40s, we all need a laugh,” the company says. “And, don’t forget to watch Lapping before seeing our short film: so you can participate in the debate on whether the book, so to speak, is better than the film.”

Phony Content was founded in 2018 by two Gen Z brothers, Jesse and Simon Brooks, who realized that the old cafe and bar banter they grew up with now happened in group chats. With that in mind, the two decided to take the same sitcom formula and reinvent it for mobile audiences. Jesse and Simon launched Phony Texts, a fictional chat network that scripts text conversations. Together they have built a team of writers and editors who produce 1-2 stories a day. Since 2018, they have expanded Phony Texts and now have six different Snapchat shows and an audience of well over 14 million across all of its social media channels. Phony Content gets over 170 million minutes viewed per month and over 70 million video views per month on its network.

Fredericton filmmaker Ty Giffin has always had a fascination with gangster films and since watching the film Freedmenhe wanted to make one of his own.

He wondered why he was so drawn to these types of films in his youth and ultimately attributed it to “toxic masculinity”.

At that time, the short film he was writing, Ciceronehas become a look at the men young boys look up to and the culture of violence that surrounds it.

“It was a bit, not exactly autobiographical, but I definitely put myself in the protagonists shoes when I was writing it,” Giffin said.

Toxic masculinity refers to cultural pressures that encourage men to behave in a certain way, often linked to the notion “boys don’t cry”.

The 11-minute film follows a young man named Robbie as he tries to figure out what to do with his life, Giffin said. Robbie gets bullied at school and sees a mob member named Jon. He admires Jon, so he decides to follow him for a screenplay he’s writing.

Cicerone follows a young man named Robbie, left, who is trying to figure out what to do with his life. Robbie decides to follow a member of the mafia, Jon, for a screenplay he is writing. (Cicerone)

Jon Wilkinson plays Jon in the film and he said it was fun to explore an opposite personality to his own.

“At the end of the day, every human being has the ability to do bad things, but not everyone chooses it,” Wilkinson said. “So to kind of have this safe space…through film to explore this side of human nature is very, very interesting.”

bad models

Wilkinson said he was a big fan of the crime drama TV series The Sopranos and he always saw two of the main characters, Tony and Paulie, as being really cool. But since I work on Ciceronehe looked at the series from a different point of view.

When people watch the movie, Wilkinson hopes viewers will start to re-evaluate the people they look up to, whether they’re fictional or real.

Jon Wilkinson plays Jon in the film and said it was fun to explore a personality so different from his. (Cicerone)

“I hope after seeing this movie people…say, ‘OK, cool, but he’s not a great person either, you know, what exactly are they doing for the society ?'”

Giffin said that the main character, Robbie, feels beaten down by society and is in a vulnerable place where he is on the verge of possibly becoming an abusive young man. Robbie has an uncle in the movie who tries to steer him in the right direction, but Robbie ends up looking up to Jon.

Giffin said this part of the plot inspired the film’s title, Ciceronebecause that’s an old term for a guide.

“I kind of imagined it as the male role models we look up to and the effects they have on us and the culture that came before us, and how we fit into it,” Giffin said.

How the movie was born

Giffin studied film at the University of New Brunswick and has only produced short films for less than $100 each. But Cicerone was a $13,000 project.

When Giffin graduated, people told him to “write what you know”.

“I was like, ‘I don’t really know what I know. Like, I’m so young, I don’t really know what my story is to tell,'” Giffin said.

He wrote a screenplay with tropes and imagery from gangster movies, but when he worked with a producer and started digging deeper, he realized the real story behind it. Cicerone.

Next film festival screening

Giffin received an ArtsNB Creation Grant and a Short Film Enterprise Award after completing the screenplay in 2019.

Then, when the pandemic hit, filming was postponed to September 2021. Giffin did all of the film’s editing himself and said he only tries to work on it when he feels inspired.

The film premiered at select online festivals, but will have its in-person premiere at the FIN Atlantic International Film Festival in Halifax on September 18.

Giffin hosted a private screening for the cast and crew when the film was completed and he said he finally saw the short with “fresh eyes.”

When the pandemic hit, filming for Cicerone was postponed to September 2021. (Desmond Simon)

“After all these years and the delays and everything, it was pretty beautiful,” he said. “I was quite emotional and smothered coming to the end of the movie for the first time. So hopefully when people watch it, they feel the same way.”

Giffin said breaking into the world of film as an Atlantic Canadian filmmaker has been interesting. He said many of his connections came from college, which gave him the opportunity to work on professional sets.

Now he works at UNB in ​​the media services department and he says his journey has “come full circle”.

“We feel every year that the [film] community in Fredericton and New Brunswick is getting bigger and bigger.

SIVASAGAR, September 10: Sivasagar writer, director and theater personality, Rupak Bhuyan has won 7 international film festival awards for his new 21-minute short film ”anya ek prithvi” (A Different World), which is based on the world of the visually impaired.

Talk to The Tribune of Assam , Bhuyan said he was inspired to make a film about the visually impaired after producing a drama at Sivasagar Natya Mandir a few years ago with the students of Moran Blind School. One of the students asked him to make a movie with them too as they were delighted with their performance on stage. Bunya’s son and his sister Ranjana Chaliha also inspired him to make the film. He wrote a script and finally on January 5, 2022 he brought 22 blind students from different places in Assam. He chose an ideal location in Sapekhati Dhuniapathar gaon and shot there for a fortnight.

Picking up the project, he had phone conversations with each individual in the group to understand their world and their feelings and outlook. He added that his film screened in a preliminary screening at Hollywood Raleigh Studio on August 29. If selected, it will be included in a group of five best short films to be presented in front of a panel of critics and eminent filmmakers.
