It’s crazy theoretical, but if you’re a screenwriter, a Tim Burton fan, interested in how Jung, Joseph Campbell, or the Trickster Archetype relate to film, you’ll probably find this short podcast interesting. Jungian Film Studies: The Essential Guide is available in December.  Listen here:

Stunt People Rock – CGI used sparingly in visual storytelling

mad_max_4_fury_road_Must have been so much fun for Margaret Sixel to edit Fury Road !  Won an Oscar for editing 470 hrs of raw footage into Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), tho she’d never cut an action movie before. 

See Raw Action Footage here: (no CGI).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfm4gvxNW_o

Sixel’s edited many films, including Babe: Pig in the City (1998) & Happy Feet (2006).  Props to the stunt men & women, & the production team!

Message Received: Children like Girl Action Toys

Female hero, Jyn Erso, to be featured in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” toy line.

So when you give boys toys and T-shirts that lack female representation, you’re telling them that women don’t deserve to be represented in the culture. But give them a female action figure at an early age before all of that bullshit has been implanted in their heads, and not only will they play with the damn thing, but they might just grow up thinking women are equal to men. Take them to see movies with women saving the world, and they’ll want a T-shirt with her picture on it.” – Casey Cipriani, Women and Hollywood.  Read More:
