Back Stage, September 24th – How To Use Your Acting Skills On and Off Stage, by Robert Curtiss.
1. Knowledge. Acquire the knowledge you need to accomplish a desired task or goal—whether that is in show business or your support job. 2. Enthusiasm. Others pick up on your enthusiasm, and it gets them excited about what you are doing. 3. Empathy. Be aware of others, and try to understand where they are coming from. 4. Presentation. Always take care to present yourself as you want to be seen and heard. 5. Execution. The more you practice how you speak, sell, greet people, interview, etc., the more you will feel prepared and relaxed, and the more your skills become ingrained into your natural behavior. 6. Reading Cues. This skill is vital in everyday life, but it will also help you in the art of acting, where listening and observing are essential.
Hollywood Reporter, September 24th – Jerry Bruckheimer to Receive American Cinematheque Award, by Gregg Kilday.
Jerry Bruckheimer has been selected as the 27th recipient of the American Cinematheque Award, which will be presented to him Dec. 12 at the organization’s annual gala at the Beverly Hilton. He becomes the first producer to be recognized in the history of the award. The American Cinematheque Award is given to a filmmaker “who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion picture.” Funds raised benefit the year-round programming of the nonprofit cultural organization the American Cinematheque.
Variety, September 24th – The Deal That Could Dim Netflix’s Emmy Afterglow, by Andrew Wallenstein.
With three Emmy statuettes now on its mantle, this should be a carefree time at Netflix. However, pay-TV providers intend to compete for rights to the catalog TV series that Netflix and other subscription video on demand services have established. 21st Century Fox and Comcast are said to be on the verge of one such deal. The prospect of pay-TV distributors beginning to lure sizable amounts of premium content away from Netflix in the coming years poses an existential threat to the streaming service. Can Netflix outbid the distributors for the rights to enough library content to stay viable in the marketplace? Or is that an outmoded definition of viability given library content may not matter as much to Netflix in the near future given its Emmy-winning success in original programming?
