With the dynamic nature of show business today, the ability to be versatile is perhaps one of the strongest traits an actor can have. The ever-changing face of entertainment means that there are more ways than ever to tell a story. Gone are the days where an actor’s resume consisted only of roles within the walls of a playhouse or studio. Now we are presented with an entertainment landscape that includes everything from a film delivered straight to your phone to an international-scale production in a stadium with thousands of moving parts.
Joseph Pharoah has done both, as well as everything... Read More
(Actress Aleksandra Kovacevic shot by Myron McClure)
Born in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina Aleksandra Kovacevic moved to Germany early on in her youth where she spent the majority of her formative years. By the time she hit high school her passion for acting was burning with full force.
Dedicated to perfecting her craft on the stage, the talented young performer landed several starring roles in theatre productions back home in Germany before transitioning into the world of film and television several years ago.
Like Kovacevic, many of today's most beloved... Read More
Back in the Golden Age of Hollywood, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (a.k.a. “MGM”) was once the most glamorous of film studios, run with an iron fist by its co-founder, Louis B. Mayer. Today’s film studios are media conglomerates ruthlessly driven by profits and a bottom line – usually by a group of executives halfway across the country, if not halfway around the world. And despite today’s growing trend for film stars to command hefty salaries as well as a percentage of the film’s profits, having a big name fronting a movie doesn’t necessarily guarantee box office gold. In the last of this four-part... Read More

Arguably one of the most famous landmarks in the world, and certainly an... Read More
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing one of Russia's most sought after cinematographers, Egor Povolotskiy. Having received two coveted awards at the Rochester International Film Festival last year for his work on the film We Are Enemies, Povolotskiy's brilliant use of lighting and camera placement in this film and others make it easy to see why he continues to be tapped to use his creative expertise on films across continents. In Ilya Rozhkov's We Are Enemies, Povolotskiy's superior talents shine through on the screen brilliantly.
Not only does the fluidity and precision of each... Read More
"Take a seat be moved," scrolls across the 2015 SR Socially Relevant Film Festival NY website; the festival where director Liliya Anisimova's most recent documentary feature Love Is the Highest Law screened last Friday.
Maybe it's Anisimova's long history as a television news journalist for Russian media outlets like Teleinform and Moscow Doverie that has given her the knowledge of what "socially relevant" really means in the eyes of an audience; but, regardless of where her capacity for creating impactful films came from, the point is, she has it.
Captivated by the unique lives... Read More
This past weekend, my husband and I went to see American Sniper, the 2014 biographical war drama film based on the book, American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History written by Chris Kyle, with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice. My husband had looked forward to seeing the movie. Me – not so much. As a writer of mystery novels, I’m no stranger to “offing” my characters in inventive ways but I’m nevertheless the kind of gal who still yearns for happy endings and prefers to watch a movie without having to keep tabs on a growing body count (something that didn’t...
