  • CBC gives a nod to the “F Word” with doc
    Thursday March 03rd 2011

    This year is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day and to mark the occasion, CBC Television’s The Doc Zone gives a little nod to the “F Word.” The F Word: Who Wants To Be a Feminist? directs a sharp eye at the history and state of feminism today: its stigma and the miles still left to go before it rests. Directed by Michael McNamara and produced by Judy Holm, the film will have its world broadcast premiere on CBC Television’s The Doc Zone tonight.

  • THE BRIEF: A post on post and an interview with Rooster
    Tuesday March 01st 2011

    We’ll fix it in post. Remember that? We knew that the storyboard didn’t exactly jump off the page, but that’s because the client couldn’t envision what it would look like when you’d actually see… the old, mundane 4×4 blows up into tiny molecules that morph into a source of light which circles across the entire universe, until it beams down on the top of Mt. Everest where we see a Land Rover. The Land Rover drives down the mount. Cut to SUPER in a b/g of Matisse-like blue. 
    But post now has its own blues. For empathy and a clear overview, The Brief spoke with Lesley Parrott of Lesley Parrott Consulting, who has forty years of Canadian commercial production under her belt.

    Tuesday March 01st 2011

    Warner Bros. and CBS have had enough of Charlie Sheen, announcing late last week that they were shutting down production of his TV top-rated comedy, Two and a Half Men. Now, Sheen is claiming that the move will free him up to take other roles. But the man whose recent publicity tour features such highlights as “The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards look like droopy-eyed, armless children” has the town asking not what will he do next, but rather will he ever work again? If history is any indication, the answer is yes, assuming he can clean up his act.
