Rest in Peace BETTY WHITE – Remembering her best moments

Oh wow... I wasn't expecting to be posting this today. I was out and about most of the day and heard about her passing while I was driving in my car. I think everyone is ready to say goodbye to 2021 and losing such a legend like Betty White is another blow to an already …

Ranking ADAM DRIVER’s 10-best roles in honor of his birthday!

Ahhhh... I almost missed Adam Driver's 38th birthday on Friday, November 19 if it weren't for my photography-enthusiast husband pointing it out to me on Instagram. Apparently one of the photographers he follows on IG, Jason Belle, had wished him a happy birthday. I've been crushing on this Indiana-native for some time now... it's been …

Thursday Movie Picks: Female Cinematographers

ThursdayMoviePicks

Given today’s THURSDAY MOVIE PICK‘s topic is on female cinematographers, I thought I’d reblog this post I did last November.

Check out my appreciation for the fabulous work of Charlotte Bruus Christensen, Rachel Morrison, Maryse Alberti, Mandy Walker, and Ellen Kuras

I’d been wanting to do this post for a while, but somehow haven’t got around to it. Well, thanks to last week’s Thursday Movie Picks on favorite cinematography, which I had actually missed, I thought I should make up for it this week.

The awesome topic came from Brittani who went with films highlighting female cinematographers on her post, so for this list I’m picking five female DPs whose work I admire, and it’s safe to say they’re some of the best DPs working today.

Before I get to that, I must say that perhaps more so than other key players in filmmaking like directors/writers/producers, DPs are still very much a man’s world. Based on WomenAndHollywood.com, of the top 300 films from 2016 to 2018, 97% were male and 3% were female were credited as the director of photography (DP) across the top live action films, which translates…

Happy 51st Birthday Paul Rudd! My favorite Ant-Man scenes in the MCU

Apparently today's Paul Rudd's birthday! Can you believe it this guy is 51 years old!! He doesn't look a day over 30. Like Keanu Reeves, there must be a secret fountain of youth these guys ought to tell us! I was reading a bit about Paul Rudd, as I don't really know much about him. …

TCFF 2019 Documentary Spotlight – ‘Seeing Is Believing: Women Direct’ + Interview with director Cady McClain

On its 10th anniversary, more than 60% of Twin Cities Film Fest's 2019 program are driven by female filmmakers. It's something I'm happy about of course, but I wish the general statistics about women in Hollywood is something to cheer about. As of right now, according to Women And Hollywood stats, women only make up …
