SNAPSHOTS OF AN EVENING

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, December 19, 2012


We’re not going to show you what happened onstage at the Producers Guild Awards last month; you can check our video feature for that. But we’ve collected a series of photos that take you everywhere other than the stage… Oscars producer Bruce Cohen chatting with King’s Speech director Tom Hooper before dinner; David Fincher embracing Visionary Award nominee Laura Ziskin on the red carpet; host Judd Apatow trying out some of the night’s material on Will Ferrell and Adam McKay; Tom Hanks and Kenneth Branagh cracking up backstage; PGA President Hawk Koch in the green room after the show, congratulating the Awards team on a job well done.

In this photo slideshow, you’ll see nominees, power players, stars and PGA members mixing and mingling together, before, during and after the Awards. It’s as close as you can get to the "feel” and the spirit of the event without being there. And if you weren’t there this year, we hope that you’re sufficiently inspired by them to come out for our 2012 Awards show. (It’ll be here before you know it.)

PGA Members Mentor Future PGA Members

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, December 19, 2012

"Made in NY” Production Assistants (from left): Chrystal Norma, Peony Rene Cliff Jean, Adrian Moron, Brian Joseph, Tayna Orta

On the evening of Sunday, January 16, 2011 "The Made in NY” Production Assistant Training Program will host its 4th Annual PA Film Festival showcasing the work of the program’s alumni at Littlefield Performance and Art Space in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The training program was developed in partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and Brooklyn Workforce Innovations, a non-profit whose mission is to give unemployed and underemployed New Yorkers a chance to work in an exciting career. PGA East Co-Chair of Employment, Nancy Goldman, works as job developer for the program which has graduated over 250 certified production assistants in the five years since its inception. The PAs have worked on over 1,000 productions in the city. This fall several students cut their teeth on John Leguizamo’s upcoming movie "Fugly” which PGA member Brian David Cange line produced. Other PGA members, including Vice-Chairs Mark Marabella and Dana Kuznetzkoff, Steven Holtzman, Michelle Budnick, Mike Stafford, Roni Wheeler, Rachel Watanabe-Batton, Jamie Schutz, Marcia Mule and former PGA East Chair David Picker, have been guest instructors.

Many alumni work on their own projects simultaneously and the festival provides a venue for the various projects to be screened and for the graduates to network with each other for future collaborations. Last year’s festival featured clips of 22 entries which included short films, documentaries and music videos that graduates produced, directed, shot and/or wrote themselves. This year, for the first time, the "Made in NY” PA Training Program staff will bestow a "Best Producer” Award. PGA East Chair, John Hadity, will provide a top honor by meeting with the winner to hone their pitch. In 2009, then Vice Chair Lydia Dean Pilcher contributed a similar prize to Gabrielle Rivera who won with her short film Spanish Girls are Beautiful.


"Made in NY” Production Assistant Myo Campbell
Alexander took first prize in 2010 with his short film, Abidjan, the story of a young soccer prodigy, which was shot in New York and Ivory Coast in West Africa. The short has gone on to win the Award of Merit from the LA Cinema Festival of Hollywood and has been an official selection in several other festivals. Second place went to Anthony Palmini who saved his money to buy a camera and shot his short in one day. Not only did he write and direct his VH1style mockumentary, H.U.G. Story, but he also composed the extensive score. Dorothy Hall’s documentary about a fighter, Diendo: The African Animal, garnered third place honors. Prizes of up to $1000 were donated by the local NYC production vendors Eastern Effects, Wit’s End and Gotham Sound.

An enthusiastic crowd of more than 150 supporters turned out last year and this year’s celebration promises to be bigger and better. For information about how you can attend, or to hire a "Made in NY” Production Assistant, please call Nancy Goldman at 718-757-5816.

PGA GOES 3D

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, December 19, 2012
by Jesse Gordon



Earlier this month, on December 4, the PGA produced an event in conjunction with 3DU, the International 3D Society University. Entitled "Producing 3D Films: What Every Producer Should Know,” the day-long session brought together many of the true leading lights of the stereoscopic technology world, covering everything from pre-production planning, to capture methodologies, to conversion, to pipelines and workflow.

For a one-stop shop, this event was hard to beat, especially as it was completely FREE to PGA members. (Outsiders paid $75 for the privilege.) A sampling of some PGA members in attendance turned up some glowing reviews:

"As someone who doesn't work in post, or VFX and has never worked on a 3D project, I found this seminar hugely valuable,” vouched AP Council member Carole Beams. "The content gave lots of insight into the terminology, the concept of creating 3D and the pros and cons of various methods. Often seminars of this nature are so heavy into the techno-speak that only hardcore techies can understand what's being said. However, each of the panelists and moderators on Saturday conveyed the information in such a way as to be comprehensible for someone like myself.”

Those sentiments were echoed by Carole’s fellow AP Council member Melissa Brockman, who called the event, "a great primer on stereoscopic film making. It made the subject very easy to understand for a novice, but also good for those with some 3D knowledge.”

For Randal Kleiser (not only a Producers Council member, but also the director of the Disney Theme Parks’ "Honey I Shrunk the Audience” attraction), "the highlight of the presentations was Jon Karafin's demonstrations of conversion techniques. He visually illustrated the effects of poor 3D conversion in a way I had not seen before, explaining what to look for to keep quality levels up.”

New Media Council member Charlotte Huggins likewise appreciated the broad scope and informed perspectives provided by the speakers. "Just when I think I have the whole 3D production thing understood,” she shares, "I hear how the landscape is changing and how much I have to learn. I am amazed how much the production and post-production tools are improving, and thrilled at how much us veterans are learning from 3D newcomers who are approaching the art and technology of 3D filmmaking with fresh ideas. Hearing the real-world experiences of producers like Jeff Silver on the 3D set of TRON was inspirational. His list of "Do's" and "Don'ts" was insightful, and will inform any production I do going forward. From practical technical and procedural updates to new creative production approaches, the PGA/I3DS seminar was a great day well spent."

Once again, we feel that it’s worth pointing out that this day-long event was entirely free to members. Sixteen speakers – among the top professionals in the field – came out to share their knowledge with the producing community. It’s another small reminder that your PGA membership is about more than just screenings and DVD screeners… if you’re not taking advantage of the incredible programs being put together by the Seminar Committees (on both coasts) and your fellow PGA colleagues. Be on the lookout for future day-long "themed” workshops centering on topics of interest to our members – we hope we’ll see you at the next one.
