I started “Dynasty” in 1982. I don’t know how long it was before Ronald Reagan ever mentioned it. It was not until the very end of his presidency.” Jack, 49, is now savoring “Heroes.” “It’s been great. It started off as a one-page audition for a guest star on the pilot, and it’s become this incredible role – the best role I’ve ever had. It’s been kind of a magical-carpet ride.” And he wants to get back on the magic carpet soon: “We’ve been down for about three weeks, and I can’t wait for this writers strike to be over and go back to work.” Jennifer Love Hewitt has butt and apology Jack Coleman is one of the few actors in Hollywood who know what it’s like to have lightning strike twice when it comes to landing on a hit series. The man who has played Mr. Bennet (aka Horn-Rimmed Glasses) on the NBC series “Heroes” for the past two seasons previously had a six-year run as Steven Carrington on the classic nighttime soap “Dynasty.” I ran into Jack at the Ribbon of Hope Celebration, an awards show that honors movies and television shows that continue to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS. Even though Jack’s “Dynasty” character was one of the first openly gay characters on network television, AIDS was never a part of the show’s storyline. Got my copy of the new People magazine and on the cover is a gorgeous Jennifer Love Hewitt in the ocean wearing a bikini. She looks terrific. The photo was taken on the same day that unflattering shots taken from behind were splashed all over the Internet, resulting in snarky remarks from people shocked that the actress, whose film credits include “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” doesn’t have the figure of a Barbie doll. posted the picture with this mean headline: “We know what you ate this summer Love – everything!” The “Ghost Whisperer” star – in Hawaii with her fiance , Ross McCall, celebrating their recent engagement – was so ticked off at all the hoopla that, on her official Web site, she wrote, in part: “To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini – put it on and stay strong.” Shockingly, TMZ issued an apology! “We did go too far. … And we’re sorry.” DUI roundup OK, we know that Kiefer Sutherland started his stint in the slammer on Thursday and a jail spokesman provided the details on that first day behind bars to “Kiefer is not happy to be here, but has accepted his responsibility and is ready to get on with his life.” Kiefer’s menu was cereal for breakfast, a turkey sandwich for lunch and chicken a la king for dinner. Yum! Meanwhile, Vivica A. Fox pleaded no contest to DUI and was sentenced to 36 months on probation. She also must pay a fine and attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Then there is Gary Collins – the former talk show host, married to former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley – who also pleaded no contest to DUI this week. He was sentenced to four days in L.A. County jail, then four years on probation. He also must pay a $500 fine and perform 100 hours of community service. Because Collins, 69, had previously been convicted of DUI (in 2004) he must attend AA meetings and also participate in an 18-month second-offender drug-alcohol program. Hmmmm. Collins’ sport utility vehicle slammed into a couple of parked cars, and he still got off pretty easy compared with Kiefer.

€14.7m quay extension for Killybegs Harbour welcomed

first_imgMinster Joe McHugh has said the new €14.7million investment to extend the quay at Killybegs Harbour in Donegal is guaranteed to drive business for the fishing sector, cruise liner operators and associated business and tourism.“This is brilliant news to get confirmed for Donegal – Government has confirmed a major pot of money for next phase of works to begin in the coming weeks,” Minister McHugh said.“Some €14.7million will be invested in Killybegs harbour in the coming year under Project Ireland 2040. “It will help to fund a 120m quay extension at Smooth Point – a significant development for the north west coast and a big boost for the county.“The work will improve quay space and ultimately that is good for safety at the peak of the fishing season when congestion can build. But it will also help to grow the industry in the port and the associated marine businesses as well as transport and service sectors and also tourism.“Investment of this scale is helping to support an important coastal and rural community. It is helping to make Killybegs among the best ports in Europe for the fishing industry. It is good for the wider seafood sector. It is good for tourism and it is good for helping businesses to grow and diversify. A bigger port means more opportunities.”The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine said the work to extend the quay is expected to start in September. The timeline is for the work to be complete within 9 months. This is the second phase of the Smooth Point project after €6.6m investment in recent years to remove sediment.Minister McHugh said: “Previous work on the pier was hugely successful in supporting the fishing industry, supporting businesses and drawing in other marine traffic and business.“The next phase of the major quay wall extension will provide long-term berthing for approximately 10 large pelagic fishing trawlers and will facilitate safe stern-on berthing.“It will also help support Government policy to see Ireland become the hub for all the marine activities that can be generated by the sustainable harvesting of these renewable resources in our marine sphere.”€14.7m quay extension for Killybegs Harbour welcomed was last modified: August 2nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Feeding Farmers Week #2 – Ellis Farms, Clinton County

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Tuesday’s cooler than normal temperatures greeted the crew of the Ohio Ag Net as they ventured to Clinton County for the second installment of the 2015 Feeding Farmers in the Field sponsored by AgriGold Hybrids. The week’s winners were Ellis Farms – a corn, soybean, and wheat operation unique in the fact that it is also a successful pheasant hunting preserve.Scott and Matt Ellis lead the operation. Overall, the two said that rain would be very welcome and their planting season was quick. Now, the farm is attempting to catch up on spraying.“April was cold and wet for us. A lot of people around here didn’t get in until the last week, right before the first of May,” said Scott Ellis. “Wheat in particular didn’t get in putting pre-plant ammonia on until about the 26th or 27th of April. Started planting corn around the first and second of May. Then, from there, it was really quick to get things done. About a week for planting corn, another week for planting beans – a couple weeks to be done with everything. Since then, right here we haven’t had any rain to speak of. We’re really dry and could use a little drink.“Some of our corn has got some grass breaking through, so I think it didn’t get activated because of the dry weather without any showers to activate that. We’re starting our post-season right now,” said Scott. “We’re still looking decent for not having any moisture. It’s still early in the season though.”Looking to harvest, the Ellises say they’re optimistic, but also realistic.“I don’t think we’re looking at what we’ve had the past couple of years – we’ve been really fortunate. But with the markets down the way they are, we need to have a good crop like we’ve had the past couple of years,” he said. “All you can do is just sit back and let mother nature do what she can – nothing we can control about that.”Matt Ellis says the crops are in a good place for now, but that it’s up to nature for the next part.“The crops are so so. Our populations are there at least so now it’s up to mother nature,” Matt said. “I’ve been doing a lot of custom spraying since college and it’s always a challenge when you don’t get the rain. A lot of the 28 put on with the spray was gone. The activity of the chemicals didn’t happen so it’s a big post-season now and you’ve got to do things right with that.”More on the operation as Dale Minyo interviews Matt Ellis belowlast_img read more

5 Film Trailer Editing Tips

first_imgNo matter how great your editing skills, cutting together a film trailer is an art form of its own and requires a very unique approach.Trailers play a vital part in the success of any independent film. Not only because they help to generate buzz for the film once it’s ready to be released, but also because they can help secure a release (or distribution) in the first place.I have worked on numerous films that have been sold to distributors simply on the basis of the trailer. Granted, these films also had great production value, and in some cases name actors, but the trailer above all else could be credited for securing distribution.It’s not uncommon for a distributor to commit to purchasing/licensing a film without actually seeing it in it’s entirety. In many cases at film markets, distributors, sales agents and other industry pros don’t have the time to watch films in their entirety before making an offer or securing a deal.Naturally, they have to rely on the trailer as a means to represent what the film is capable of. But regardless of whether you want to cut a great trailer as a means to lock in a distributor, or simply to promote the film’s release – it’s critical that the trailer you cut is impeccable. A bad trailer can absolutely ruin the success of a film, and there is really no excuse not to be able to cut a strong trailer from a feature film. All it takes is a little practice and some attention to detail.On Hollywood level feature films, the editor of the film obviously isn’t cutting the trailer. It’s going to a dedicated editor, usually working at a post-company that only focuses on trailers and promos. The reason being that trailer editing calls for its own distinctive approach: On your indie film, you may need to edit the film and the trailer yourself based on budgetary limitations, and that’s perfectly fine. You just need to treat those two parts of the process as independent projects and tap into different skill sets to get the job done. That can be done in a straightforward way by following these five film trailer editing tips:1. Only Use the Best of the BestImage from The Mouse CastleIf you are cutting down a 100 minute film into a 2 minute trailer, you have no reason to use anything but the absolute best footage. This may sound like a no-brainer, but many indie filmmakers are afraid to use their best material in the trailer, as they don’t want to give anything away. I’m not suggesting that you give away major plot points or the twist at the end of your film, but don’t be too precious with your material.Remember that the best footage will draw the biggest audience, so make sure that every last shot and scene that you show represents the best the film has to offer.2. Prioritize the First Half of the FilmAlthough you can certainly get away with using scenes from any part of your film, I highly recommend that you focus primarily on the first half. Act 1 and Act 2 in most films contain the best trailer moments. Act 1 is the setup, so naturally you are going to want to include enough scenes from there to help ease the viewer into your story.And the beginning of Act 2 typically focuses heavily on the premise of your film – or the hook, which is what is going to sell tickets. You want to give away enough of your film that it accurately represents the story, but not so much that the viewer feels like they’ve seen it all. That’s why focusing on the first half is usually a good rule of thumb.The trailer for Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity does a good job of focusing on the film’s early beats. Check it out:3. Understand the FormatNot all trailers are created equal, and there is certainly some room for creative flexibility in the cutting room. Above, I suggested focusing mainly on the first half of your film when cutting a trailer, which works wonderfully for a more traditional trailer format. At the same time, you can always break the rules or use a less traditional method for getting your vision across.One example of this might be to take a single moment or scene from your film and let it play out. Rather than showing the whole picture of what the film is about, this strategy is all about creating a mood or texture that teases the audience without giving away many story details. The infamous first Cloverfield trailer is a perfect example of this technique.There is really no one specific format or formula that works best for trailer editing, but you do need to identify which approach you want to take before you start cutting. If you go in blindly, it would be like shooting your film with no script. Know which format works best for your trailer, and choose your scenes and moments wisely so that they fit within those parameters.4. Use Multiple Music CuesImage from AudientTwo and a half minutes might not seem like a lot of time, but in the context of a trailer it can be a lifetime. Assuming you have cut together a wide variety of material and your trailer has some sort of arc to it, it’s going to need more than one music cue to bridge together each beat.Think of your trailer as a mini film. Would you use the same music cue for your entire feature film? Probably not. So why use a single cue for your trailer, which is essentially a short film in itself? You don’t need to go overboard, but using two or three cues tastefully to help guide the different beats in your trailer can be very helpful.5. Keep the Logo ShortThis is a small but important point, in my opinion. Always keep the production company logo up front as short as possible – or don’t have it at all. I’ve seen so many indie film trailers that have 15 seconds of a logo up front (from a company that no one has ever heard of), and it just comes across as unprofessional. If you want to include your logo that’s completely fine, but limit the screen time to a couple of seconds at the most so you can get into the meat of your trailer.Following these five easy film trailer editing tips can make a difference in promoting your film.
