North Carolina film incentives chopped PDF Print E-mail

under the dome cbs.jpg

North Carolina legislators have ditched the state’s longtime film and TV incentives program amid a conservative push to cut back on such government support reports Variety.

“We knew that this would be an uphill battle and we were cautiously optimistic,” said Johnny Griffin, director of the Wilmington (N.C) Regional Film Commission. “The problem was that a lot of legislators were philosophically opposed to any incentives, period. So we were absolutely not surprised.”

ADVERTISEMENT

North Carolina has been home to 800 productions over the past three decades.

TV series recently shot in North Carolina include CBS’ “Under the Dome,” ABC’s “Secrets and Lies” and Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow.” Recent movies include “Iron Man 3,” “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Tammy,” “The Longest Ride” and Relativity’s untitled heist drama about the 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery.

The state’s legislature decided to end North Carolina’s current 25% incentive program — which is covering about $300 million in production expenditures this year — and replace it next year with a grant program for movie and TV productions with a total annual cap of $10 million in grants.

That means the state will only be able to provide incentives to cover a total of $40 million in production expenditures in 2015. Griffin said North Carolina will probably see productions begin to depart at that point and the Motion Picture Assn. of America issued a statement predicting the new grant program will be ineffective.

“Under the current production incentive program, film and TV production supports over 4,000 jobs in North Carolina and brings millions of dollars in direct spending all across the state,” the MPAA said. “It’s disappointing that the new grant program included in the budget agreement will prevent North Carolina from remaining competitive in attracting this prominent source of in-state economic activity.”

The issue of using state funds to provide incentives for the film and TV business has drawn a concerted attack from conservatives since last year with the Americans for Prosperity group — backed by the Koch brothers — asserting that the incentives were not working.

“The film tax incentives are not proven job creators or overall government revenue enhancers, despite what proponents say,” wrote Donald Bryson, deputy director of the group in North Carolina, earlier this year. “In state after state, from Connecticut to Louisiana to Ohio, film incentives have been found to be net revenue losers.”

“And job creation?” Bryson added. “Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Wisconsin have two things in common. All four have terminated their film incentive programs – and all four have lower unemployment rates than North Carolina, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.”

Bryson contended that the state needed to widen the tax base by eliminating targeted tax credits and cutting overall tax rates “instead of subsidizing its favorite industries with tax credits.”

North Carolina’s program — along with those in New York, Georgia, Louisiana and New Mexico — had been able to lure productions away from California, where an incentive program providing $100 million a year has been in effect only since 2009.

Legislation to increase the size of California’s program to $400 million per year is currently in the state Senate. Backers of the bill staged a rally this week at the state capital, drawing several hundred supporters that included actors Carl Weathers, Daniel Stern and Ron Perlman.

Lauren Bacall left behind an estimated $26.6 million estate and part of it ensures that her dog will be well provided for reports The New York Daily News.

The silver screen legend left $10,000 to her youngest son to look after her beloved lap dog Sophie.

The actress who passed away at age 89 also left money to two of her employees and $250,000 to each of her grandsons. The bulk of her estate will be divided between her three children, Leslie Bogart, Stephen Humphrey Bogart and Sophie’s guardian, Sam Robards.

The trio will also share the rights to her likeness and movie and book royalties. However there is one thing that their famous mom asked for in return.

“I request that my children respect my wish to keep private certain personal letters, writings, diaries and other papers or memorabilia,” she wrote according to papers filed in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court.

Pam Anderson criticizes ALS ice bucket challenge PDF Print E-mail

One celeb you won’t see being dunked with an ice bucket for the viral ALS challenge is Pamela Anderson. According to Us weekly the “Baywatch” star took to social media to criticize the charity campaign that has raised millions for Lou Gehrig’s disease research.

Earlier this week the longtime animal rights activist posted a Facebook message criticizing ALS researchers.

"Sorry, I can't bring myself to do your Ice bucket challenge," the post began. "I enjoy a good dare, It's always good to bring awareness - in fun, creative ways, I don't want to take away from that. I thought instead, I'd challenge ALS to stop animal testing."

The 47-year-old actress continued with claims describing how animals are used in scientific experiments.

"Recent experiments funded by the ALS Association, mice had holes drilled into their skulls, were inflicted with crippling illnesses, and were forced to run on an inclined treadmill until they collapsed from exhaustion. Monkeys had chemicals injected into their brains and backs and were later killed and dissected."

Anderson then quoted an FDA statistic stating that 92 out of 100 drugs that succeed in animal trials fail when used on humans.

"Trying to cure human diseases by relying on outdated and ineffective animal experiments isn’t only cruel—it’s a grave disservice to people who desperately need cures," she wrote.

Finally Anderson urged readers to “find and support charities that never harm animals.”

How Shark Week’s ‘Fin of Fury’ composer creates suspense without horror PDF Print E-mail

Shark Week concluded Saturday, and while, like in years past, this year’s 13 specials were all highly visual, music was equally integral. There’s essentially nothing but silence underwater, where much of the filming and action takes place, but musically, the specials are at the behest of the composers.

Michael Gatt, composer for Air Jaws: Fin of Fury, seized the opportunity. “What I love about Shark Week is that it’s a blank canvas,” Gatt says. “The sharks are actually quite dynamic as characters. They can be terrifying, but they’re also incredibly majestic, beautiful animals. Musically, we get to inform that emotion.”

Fin of Fury follows shark filmmaker Jeff Kurr in his two-year search to find a particular great white shark, Colossus. Kurr filmed the shark about three years ago in South Africa, and had not seen the mega-predator since. Using Colossus’ unique dorsal fin, which acts like a fingerprint, as a lead, Kurr and his team set out to prove the top predator still exists.

Gatt began with lots of talks with Kurr to get a sense for the story. “That’s really what we’re trying to support here,” Gatt says. Next, he watched the footage, explaining that he derives a lot of inspiration from picture, and tooled around with myriad instruments. The key to Fin of Fury was ultimately an obscure string instrument: the GuitarViol. Gatt created a progression using the GuitarViol, which became the motif for Colossus.

With the GuitarViol as the foundation, Gatt played with instruments, adding and detracting elements, as he moved forward. “For me, music is a little bit like Jenga,” Gatt says. “You stack a bunch of things on top of each other and then you start pulling things out to reveal it.” With the efforts of a 40-piece orchestra, Gatt created something ominous and suspenseful.

Suspense, however, borders terror. Striking a balance between the two can be tricky when your subjects are huge, powerful, menacing-looking predators. But Gatt was scoring for a global mission to find a particular shark, not a story about villainy. Again, it comes back to supporting the story, and this story is not one of horror.

“From a creative standpoint, I try to approach it from the majesty of the animal,” Gatt says. “The danger that’s coming across in the music is more of the adrenaline that’s happening. There’s no doubt that what these guys are doing is absolutely life-threatening, dangerous stuff, but if you take it too far it almost becomes camp or horror, so I just use my ears and see if it’s getting that emotion going.”

In discussing music and sharks, one work in particular comes to mind: John Williams’ Jaws theme. “John Williams is absolutely, just an incredible talent,” Gatt says. “I think we have him to thank for this connection that people have between sharks and music.”

Gatt left an Easter egg, a small homage to Williams, within Fin of Fury. The tribute, 10 seconds or so of violins that grow in pace and volume, speaks to an interesting dichotomy. Jaws villainizes sharks and treats them as man-eaters—many attribute their fear of sharks to Jaws. In contrast, Fin of Fury is about discovery, learning. Still, the tribute being short, almost undetectable unless you know where to look, Gatt thinks there’s no harm done. “That’s where I can sit comfortably with it,” Gatt says, explaining that again, like with horror and suspense, it’s a matter of balance.

Arguably, Gatt’s most interesting musical moment is when the team finally rediscovers Colossus: The gargantuan great white shark breaches out of the water, its distinguished fin exposed, indicating that after an exhaustive, two-year search, the team has finally found the shark they’ve been looking for.

The result is something a bit slower-paced and sweeping. Utilizing huge strings and brass, the moment is emotional, matching the ecstasy and relief as the search finally concludes. “As a composer, it’s a dream to score for that kind of stuff,” Gatt says. “You get to slow the tempo way down, and just take it in. Most of the time, I’m here to really support the story, but in shows like this, there are times that I get to kind of take the stage with the shark, no voiceover, just music going.”

Moments like these, of course, are rare, narratively and musically. Still, it keeps one wanting for next year’s sights and, especially, sounds. As fans count down the days until Shark Week 2015, they can look forward to future great white breaches and hope for another encounter with Colossus. But, a new development: Their wait may now set to the sound of the GuitarViol.

Chris Harrison blogs ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ episode 3 PDF Print E-mail

Another week in beautiful Mexico! I can’t even tell you how amazing it was to spend almost a month there. And every day was full of excitement. This week was a pretty quiet week in paradise with no balcony jumpers or hospital visits… wait, that’s not true. Chris Bukowski kept the streak alive and judging by the previews for next week’s two-night special event the hospital visits aren’t over yet. But let’s not jump ahead, as we have so much to discuss from this week.

We began this week by catching the aftermath of last week’s rose ceremony where Elise made the odd decision to offer Dylan a rose despite the fact that he’d repeatedly told her “do not offer me a rose, if you do I will turn it down.” We did get Elise’s explanation: “He told me three times he wouldn’t accept the rose—I needed him to confirm that.” Well, I’ll let you ponder that little gem, but the fact is Elise and Chris seemed pretty happy after the ceremony and were ready to start a fresh new love affair. Hey, it just might be crazy enough to work. Soon after the rose ceremony, we got our first new arrival of the week in Danielle from Juan Pablo’s season. There’s apparently a new house rule that stipulates that there are no rules as for who you can and can’t ask on a date. Much to Michelle Money’s chagrin, Danielle took this to heart and asked out Marquel, who gleefully accepted and off they went to the state of Campeche for their date. It seemed to go pretty well between the two of them but the “Cookie Monster” wasn’t done with dates yet this week.

Elise also got a date card this week and there was only one guy (now) that she was ready to extend it to and that’s Chris Bukowski. Chris was extremely excited to accept only he took an odd step getting out of the ocean and messed up his knee pretty badly. I’m no doctor (although I do play one on TV), but after seeing it, I can tell you it didn’t look right. Despite the bad knee, Chris decided to man up and go on the date with Elise to Campeche, which is really one of the most beautiful places in all of Mexico. But he honestly felt like crap the entire time, and it was a pretty tough for him to enjoy. It was so bad in fact the next morning Elise and Chris went to the hospital to get it checked out. They confirmed what he already knew: that it was a torn ligament. Chris came back to the villa determined to gut it out and stay in paradise, but as you know by now that didn’t happen and it changed everything this week.

With Marquel on one of his many dates this week, Michelle Money decided she was done with him and ready to move back to concentrating on Robert. Only problem here is that Sarah had kind of attached herself to Robert, and they were doing pretty good together. And yet another love triangle was created in paradise. It was tough to hear Sarah talk so openly about her insecurities and vulnerabilities. Sarah is a great woman, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her over the last couple years. I appreciate and respect how open and honest she is with us all the time. Michelle Money was also open and honest in telling Sarah she had eyes on Robert and that her and Clare were planning a double date of sorts that night at the villa. Sarah was gracious about it, but clearly it hurt and hit a sensitive nerve, one where she feels she isn’t good enough or doesn’t deserve the fairy-tale ending.

Before everybody could sort out the love triangles, broken knees, and hearts, a silhouette of a gorgeous woman emerged from the dark on the beach. It turned out to be another new arrival: Jackie. Jackie also went by this new house rule and wouldn’t you know it, she too asked Marquel out on a date. Guess who’s enjoying the limelight coming off Andi’s season? I’m incredibly interested to get your perspective on Marquel and how he handled all of this with Michelle, Danielle, and now Jackie. Is he being a player or is he being wise in keeping his options open to every possibility? If it weren’t Marquel—say it was someone like Chris Bukowski—would you have the same opinion? No matter anyone’s opinion, he seemed to really enjoy his time with Jackie. He enjoyed it so much he gave a nervous awkward speech about not kissing on the first date right before he kissed on the first date. One of the greatest things to hear on a date is “I never do this,” which translates to “I pretty much always do this but I’m conflicted about it and I’d really like you to believe I don’t.”

AshLee and Graham have one of the more intriguing relationships. I feel this way not only because it’s been interesting to follow since that first odd forceful start they got off to but also because I know these two very well. I’ve known Graham for over six years now and I can easily see what he’s really saying and feeling. AshLee got a date card and obviously took Graham on her date. It was good for them to get out of the house and be by themselves so they could discuss some much needed issues. I said in week one when relationships start on a controversial or rocky note it’s really hard to come back from that. AshLee is clearly all in, but Graham is a slow mover. Now this can work if AshLee picks up on these signals and slows her roll, but right now that’s not happening and Graham is clearly feeling a little suffocated and pressured. That is not a good position to put anyone in.

We entered this week’s rose ceremony with a few answers but plenty of questions. There are obvious relationships and roses being handed out but Danielle, Sarah, Michelle, and Jackie were on the chopping block. The first question answered was where would Marquel’s heart and rose lead him and that answer was Jackie. They had a great first date and this could be the beginning of something special. The next puzzle solved was Robert. He chose Sarah over Michelle, leaving Money and Danielle the odd women out. That is until Chris Bukowski turned everything upside down by letting everybody know he was pulling himself out of paradise to go home to tend to his knee, but that he wanted Elise to come with him. She gladly accepted, which left a rose for one more woman this week. In an incredibly touching moment Chris generously gave that rose to Michelle. It really was a sweet moment that meant the world to Michelle. You know sometimes in life it just takes one little push to get you over the hill and from there it can be a beautiful ride. We’ll see if this is just the push Money needed. Unfortunately there was not another rose for Danielle, and as quickly as she arrived, she was heading home. Danielle came in, took a swing at Marquel, but she was trumped by the arrival of Jackie.

It’s stunning to me how fast things can turn on a dime here in paradise. Next week you’ll see even more twists and turns, tears and drama as we present a special two-night Bachelor in Paradise event Monday and Tuesday nights. It’s a summer two-night extravaganza that you don’t want to miss.

Peter Dinklage and Taylor Schilling to star in Off Broadway play this winter PDF Print E-mail

Ahh, just what we’ve all been waiting for: Tyrion Lannister and Piper Chapman on stage together! It sounds like a TV lover’s dream mash-up to have Emmy darlings/hopefuls Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) matched together, but dream no more: The duo will topline the Classic Stage Company revival of Ivan Turgenev’s A Month in the Country, beginning previews in January 2015.

The play—part of an already starry CSC 2014/15 season that also includes Peter Sarsgaard in Hamlet and Chris Noth in Doctor Faustus—concerns a young country wife named Natalya (Schilling) who becomes interested in the tutor of her young son, much to the chagrin of her good friend Rakitin (Dinklage), who is already taken with her. The production will mark the NYC stage debut of Schilling and offer up Dinklage’s first theater performance since 2007, when he appeared in the Ethan Hawke-directed play Things We Want. And it appears to be a family effort of sorts, as Month will be helmed by Dinklage’s wife, theater director Erica Schmidt (Humor Abuse).

Given the small environs of Off Broadway’s Classic Stage and its thrust setting, if you want the best chance to see these TV jailbirds in action, sooner is preferable to later. A Month in the Country begins previews at NYC’s Classic Stage Company on Jan. 9, 2015, with a limited engagement through February 15. For tickets and additional information, visit the company’s official website.

Watch the hilarious ALS Ice Bucket Challenge blooper reel PDF Print E-mail

At this point, celebrities like Chris Pratt and Lady Gaga have made the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge look easy. But in case it wasn’t clear before the challenge, celebs are not always just like us.

For a number of ordinary citizens, there’s nothing simple about filling up a bucket (or a trashcan) with ice cold water and dumping it on themselves/someone else/from a balcony. In other words, America’s Funniest Home Videos needs to donate some money to ALS as a nice thank you for the number of quality bloopers this fundraising effort has provided.

From scared dogs to weak children (no offense) and every clumsy person in between, watch a compilation of what is now trending as #IceBucketFail below:

Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus parody a pawn shop PDF Print E-mail

Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are done with the meth business—maybe—and they’ve moved on to a much less dangerous venture: Running a pawn shop called Barely Legal Pawn.

In a new promo for next week’s Primetime Emmy Awards, Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul play two pawn shop owners who are clueless when Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus comes by to pawn off her Emmy statue. “I knew I recognized you,” Paul screams once the actress introduces herself. “I love your show, Weeds!”

Louis-Dreyfus ends up keeping her Emmy, telling a camera crew, “It was pretty funky in there.” She soon realizes she left her keys in the shop, and returns only to find out there’s a reason the store is called Barely Legal—and it’s much cuter than you might expect, though Paul still manages to work in his Breaking Bad catchphrase, “bitch.”

Cranston, Paul, and Louis-Dreyfus are all Emmy winners and up for the awards once again this year. The Primetime Emmy Awards air Aug. 25.

David Letterman airs Robin Williams tribute PDF Print E-mail

David Letterman wasn’t the slightest bit intimidated by Robin Williams the first time he met the comedian 38 years ago at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. That is, until Williams got on stage. “It’s like nothing we had ever seen before,” Letterman remembered. “We’re like morning dew. He comes in like a hurricane.”

Letterman’s show was taking a break last week so he wasn’t able to publicly remember Williams, who died August 11 at age 63, until Monday evening. The late night host took 10 minutes to tell stories about Williams, including one about the time Williams landed Letterman a guest spot on popular ’70s sitcom Mork and Mindy.

“This is a double-edged sword, because he did it only because he was trying to help other fledgling, starting-out comics,” Letterman said. “The other side of the sword is I had no business being on that show. I have no business being on this show.”

Once Letterman got his own show, Williams was a frequent guest who made the host’s job easy. “All I had to do is sit here and watch the machine,” Letterman said. “People were drawn to him because of this electricity, this whatever it was that he radiated, that propelled him and powered him.”

Letterman gave us a glimpse of just how electric Williams’ late night appearances were with a compilation video of his times on the show. The video features some of Williams’ trademark physical, over-the-top comedy, but it also focuses on Williams’ laughter, how he threw his head back and guffawed.

“It will make you laugh,” Letterman said before playing the video. “And really, that’s what we should take from this, is he could make you laugh under any circumstances.”
