It gives me the opportunity to go shoot those environments prior to production start, rather than relying on 2nd unit after we have begun.

To hold on to subscribers, and fight off Netflix, telephone and cable operators across Europe are pumping money into ambitious - and expensive - original series.
At MIPCOM, the international television market that wrapped up Oct.19, there was a common theme connecting this year's buzziest drama series.
Take La Zona, a post-apocalyptic crime drama set in Spain, that turns on a series of cannibalistic murders inside the exclusion zone set up after a Chernobyl-style nuclear incident. Or Medici: Masters of Florence, a period thriller set in 15th-century Florence starring Daniel Sharman and Sean Bean. Or Quasimodo, a new adaptation of Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which has Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage and Charles Dance on board as executive producers.
The link? Every one of these series will be financed, in whole or in part, by a European telecommunications company. For decades, these companies,

Hollywood attracts many people looking at sidewalk stars or footprints in concrete. This time of year, ghosts of Hollywood's past can be found at Paramount Studios, Hollywood Forever and the Haunted Hayride in Griffith Park as well as the infamous Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios.
To some, it is the old Celtic tradition of Samhain, others, the time when the veil between the human and spirit realms is the thinnest, but to most, it is the yearly celebration of Halloween. As the spirit of Halloween beckons to you like Stephen King's "It" clown, Pennywise, Hollywood is booming with even more attractions than the usual scene. Like Old Twelfth Night, people from all walks of life come together to celebrate and create a fantasy outside of their everyday selves. What better place to bring that spirit to life than diverse and lively Hollywood?
Paramount Studios has one of the most vibrant and eccentric histories in Hollywood. The reason celebrities are even referred to as "stars" is because of the original 24 stars above the iconic Paramount depicted all 24 of their actors. Paramount Tours has the perfect experience for movie buffs and fans of Hollywood history. This time of year, Paramount adds its After Dark Tour, which incorporates the fun, fact-filled stories of the regular tour but with a dark twist. It also shares its lot with the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, which is the resting place of the stars behind some of Hollywood's most notorious and unsolved stories and featured in the tour. The After Dark Tour caters to those who want to know the darker side of the industry and the real horror stories behind the people who still haunt the studio lot. It begins with an introduction to some of the history while having champagne to toast the last bit of glitz and glamour in the industry before the After Dark Tour begins. To some, the drinks provide an air of Hollywood glamour while surrounded by movie memorabilia, to others it is a little liquid courage for the tour to come.
If the haunted feeling of an empty unlit historic studio lot and tales about where people have died and other surprises isn't enough to scare you, stepping onto one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles in the middle of the night surely will. For "American Horror Story" fans, they get a real look behind the mysterious story of Rudolph Valentino from Season Five, which depicts stories based on true Hollywood history, as they stand a few feet away from his crypt. There, as you listen to stories from his mysterious demise and about the

AFI FEST 2017 presented by Audi will open with the Netflix film MUDBOUND. Directed by Dee Rees and co-written by Virgil Williams and Rees, the historical period drama features cinematography by AFI Conservatory alumna Rachel Morrison (Class of 2006). The film stars Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, Jason Clarke, Jonathan Banks, Mary J. Blige and Rob Morgan. The Opening Night Gala will take place on Thursday, November 9, 2017, at the historic TCL Chinese Theatre.
Set in the rural American South during World War II, Dee Rees' MUDBOUND is an epic story of two families pitted against one another by a ruthless social hierarchy, yet bound together by the shared farmland of the Mississippi Delta. MUDBOUND follows the McAllan family, newly transplanted from the quiet civility of Memphis and unprepared for the harsh demands of farming. Despite the grandiose dreams of Henry (Jason Clarke), his wife Laura (Carey Mulligan) struggles to keep the faith in her husband's losing venture.
Meanwhile, Hap and Florence Jackson (Rob Morgan, Mary J. Blige) - sharecroppers who have worked the land for generations - struggle bravely to build a small dream of their own despite the rigidly enforced social barriers they face.
The war upends both families' plans as their returning loved ones, Jamie McAllan (Garrett Hedlund) and Ronsel Jackson (Jason Mitchell), forge a fast but uneasy friendship that challenges the brutal realities of the Jim Crow South in

Acme Made In America worked on the set for the upcoming FOX show The Orville. Acme has a plethora of experience working on Hollywood sets and their prowess shows on this set design for The Orville. A highlight of Acme's work on this set is the custom designed furniture. Acme designed the two Captain Chairs that were featured right in the bridge of the Orville. These chairs were constructed all in-house using state of the art laser cutting and metal braking machinery. The chairs needed to be imposing enough to look like true captain chairs, while being slim enough, that they did not compromise viewing angles of the back hallway. Acme worked around these challenges and still created a fantastic set piece.
By far the most interesting piece of furniture design on this set were the crew chairs (seen on

Her situation is, admittedly, a little different than most of her producing peers. The "resting state" of many producers is to have a multitude of projects in various states of development or production, following the heat wherever and whenever it appears. As opposed to Emma Thomas, who at any given moment is working on one project, and that project alone. Most producers are constantly seeking and cultivating new connections and industry allies. Thomas' career to date is the product of a single relationship that spans her personal and professional life-she's the producer, wife and essential creative partner of visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan. A chance meeting during their first days at University College London blossomed into a decades-spanning collaboration, yielding not only contemporary classics like Inception, The Prestige and The Dark Knight trilogy, but four children as well.
