Former Cosby Show star has pleasant job with health insurance and teaches Shakespeare

Cosby Show Geoffrey Owens

Recently I came across a D-Bag blog has posted a story about “Faded” Cosby Show star Geoffrey Owens was now a “starving actor” working as a cashier at Trader Joe’s. Those that think having a pleasant job in a happy environment (with health insurance) can make someone “faded” are mistaken as to what being an actor or getting roles entails. Or do these clowns actually think that having a recurring role on a show for a handful of years makes you rich beyond your wildest dreams to the point of…

Asking for a favor? How do YOU behave after asking?

confused meme - Asking for a favor? How do YOU behave after asking?

No response,…

But some of the most heralded long takes are the result of visual effects and a lot of planning. They’re made to look like long shots but are, in fact, stitched together and carefully edited. The False Long Take Alfred Hitchcock used the basic technique of obscuring…

Beating Writer’s Block

Writer's block

I subscribe to “Daily Writing Tips” and find their mailings to be quite informative so I thought I’d pass along some of their tips with a link to subscribe to their content. They definitely deserve a shout-out! -Jon Every writer, at times, has trouble thinking of what to say next. Or what to say at all. The cause may be fear, pressure, perfectionism, but often lack of inspiration. No doubt even Mesopotamian scribes of five thousand years ago hesitated before putting stylus to tablet. We’ve written about writer’s block several…

Film Guages and their effects – Super 8, 16mm, 35mm, 65mm, IMAX 65

Film gauges

Film Gauges The film gauge that filmmakers use – the width of the strip – heavily affects the mood and tone of the movie. While many filmmakers today choose to gravitate towards digital, Paul Thomas Anderson, Christopher Nolan, and Quinton Tarantino have been very strong advocates for keeping film alive. Today there are just a few major gauges of film Super 8 16mm 16 millimeter film is grainier and often results in a dirtier texture. Think about  the raw and unpolished look of low budget horror films from the 70’s…
