Mr.-Director

So I’ve been watching the first season of Mr. Selfridge and eagerly awaiting the scene where Martin Freeman has an uncredited appearance as an extra.  Turns out it’s in the episode that has Sir Arthur Conan Doyle visiting Selfridges and hosting a séance for Mr. Selfridge and his family which the staff has been invited to attend.  Martin is cunningly positioned to appear behind the shots of ACD.  How cute is that?  But if that weren’t enough, the medium at the séance is none other than the actor who plays the American heavy in A Scandal in Belgravia.  Not sure which episode was shot first, but the juxtaposition is pretty amusing.

(3/?) Favourite DirectorsWes Anderson

“I have a way of filming things and staging them and designing sets. There were times when I thought I should change my approach, but in fact, this is what I like to do. It’s sort of like my handwriting as a movie director. And somewhere along the way, I think I’ve made the decision: I’m going to write in my own handwriting.”

“That’s the kind of movie that I like to make, where there is an invented reality and the audience is going to go someplace where hopefully they’ve never been before. The details, that’s what the world is made of.”

Beyoncé is Set to Become The Highest-Paid Black Musician of All Time

Beyoncé is expected to make well over 200 million dollars by the time the Mrs Carter Show World Tour wraps up this year (2014). The tour, which was already the highest grossing concert by a female artist in 2013, is set to become the most successful of her entire career and make her the highest paid black musician of all time!

More impressive is the fact that Mrs Carter is the director and executive producer of this entire production and is touring the world with her all female band and eight female backing dancers so exception of the french dancing duo, “Les Twins” the only men on this tour are cast and crew.

There tour was put together by her production company “Parkwood Entertainment”, which is also responsible for creating her visual album and her directorial movie debut “Life Is But A Dream.”   Seems Queen Bey doesn’t just preach woman empowerment and feminism. She’s teaching it through her own example!
