Richard Zanuck: Mogul by trade

user
Oscar winning producer Richard Zanuck hit "the Road" at 77 years old.  I remember very vividly the first time I met Richard Zanuck. We were in Deauville at the American Film Festival to premier "Road to perdition". He was flanked by his son and Tom Hanks.  No matter how accomplished I may be in my career, the little Frenchie who dreamed of making films, and meeting her idols, is still very much part of who I am today.  Even though I can't say I ...

A whole new world at DIFF

user
Film allows you to see the world without leaving your seat. My third day at DIFF took me from Lisbon to a farm in Africa, the Deep South, the Philippines and Paris. Dark clouds rolled into Durban yesterday, but the sun always shines at the movies (thank you A-Ha). My first film was the wonderful black and white Portuguese film, Tabu. The competition film is filled with nostalgia. It is set in modern-day Lisbon and in 1930s colonial Africa. It is a wonderful love story remi...

30th Outfest Film Festival is Triumphant and Proud

I must honestly say that this is the happiest film festival in Los Angeles. I should tell executive director, Kirsten Schaffer, to rename it, “The Happy film festival” from all the smiling faces of the packed audiences and participants.Everyone is in the happiest frame of mind to be there which translates into the real meaning of the word”Gay”. This year they hit the pinnacle of their success in my opinion.The opening night film “Vito” was the most perfect and touching film to pre...

RE-CUT AN EARLIER FILM IN B&W and “GOING HOME” WENT TO THE LHFF

user
“Our World Order” is re-cut in black and white  I recently re-cut one of my first films which is now entitled “Our World Order - redux”. The primary driving factor for re-cutting it was to make it black and white which I had started a long time ago, but was re-motivated as of late by “The Artist”. But as long as I was going to do the change to monochrome, I also cleaned up a few other things and before you know it was almost a new film. The story line is unchanged, but I...
