directed by love produced by passion

Your girl Taina is back! Christina Vidal is set as a lead in The Curse of the Fuentes Women, NBC’s drama pilot from Warner Bros TV. Also cast in the project, written/executive produced by Silvio Horta and directed by Jason Ensler. When a magical and mysterious young man (Adan Canto) inexplicably emerges from the ocean, he breathes new passion into the lives of the Fuentes women – the beautiful but lonely Lola (Vidal), her ailing mother Esperanza (Rachel Ticotin) and her troubled daughter Soledad (Katie Sarife). Lola has given up on love and dedicated herself to caring for her daughter Soledad, her mother Esperanza and their floundering family restaurant – until a mysterious stranger enters her life, opening up a world of possibilities. Rubin-Vega, who originated the role of Mimi Marquez in the Broadway musical Rent, plays Remelda, a Santeria priestess who lives with and acts as an adviser to Orquidia, Esperanza’s estranged sister. Vidal is repped by BRS/Gage, McKeon Myones Entertainment and SMGSB. Rubin-Vega is with Paradigm and Untitled Entertainment.

in the span of 6 years one direction literally wrote, recorded, produced and promoted FIVE albums what the fuck they worked their asses off, they put so much time and energy into making music because they felt like they had to prove themselves and they wanted to pursue it cause it’s their passion! they loved it! on top of this, they competed in a talent show for a record deal…. TOURED 5 TIMES IN 5 YEARS…….. survived a member leaving….. survived hellish management and pr…. I love them so much. these 4 boys.

anonymous asked:

ok but I strongly believe that that baby is not Louis' but.. WHY is all of this happening ? It's not taboo or wrong to be gay today in 2016 so why all of that ??

Well that’s just it, isn’t it? 

I’m working on re-publishing the biggest article I did for Buzzfeed which essentially like a Larry dissertation. I pointed out that when One Direction was formed, as early as five years ago, gay rights were starkly different then to now. Especially in the US, a market that was already deemed nearly impossible for British boybands to break. 

And even to this day decisions about marketing come down to exactly what we saw in the Sony hacks…a sample survey of the perceived audience and an image created by statistical analysis on what will sell the most records. 

This is difficult for a lot of us, as the demographic has successfully shifted to include quite a few adult fans, myself included, who can’t even enjoy the goddamn album properly because it makes me sad to think that the deep love they’ve channeled to write these extremely mature songs about actual love and not some over-produced pop (sorry WMYB) is the kind of love that is being hidden. And that my favourite song ever recorded by One Direction didn’t even make the fucking album because it’s clearly a LGBTQ anthem. “Home” is such an incredible song and Louis clearly felt passionately enough about it to leak it his damn self when it was left off of MITAM. 

It is not taboo to be gay, you are right, but at some point someone decided that it also was not profitable for One Direction. I cannot imagine the actual truth being anywhere near as horrendous as this lie they’re trying to sell. I think the only thing horrendous we have to learn from them coming out was how absolutely devastating it must have been to go through the last four years being told that people would like you less if you came out. It honestly makes me so sad to think at 16, 17, 18 they were sat down and told that, which is one of the many reasons I am so invested in everything. 

This is happening because the man who owns One Direction’s contracts was probably made to feel ashamed as a young man as well which would explain why as an old man he is still hiding his true identity. Luckily it doesn’t seem that Louis, Harry, Liam or Zayn are particularly happy about being closeted which is why nothing we see makes sense. If Irving Azoff can do as he proposed and change the music industry to protect artists from things like this then maybe we won’t raise another generation of future music moguls who are ashamed of who they are and thus project that onto their artists.

It’s been one year since I first experienced One Direction

Today marks one year since I first got dragged to a bloody One Direction concert and I wanted to say a few bits, I don’t know what, really, but I had to.

I was looking through my old whatsapps conversations earlier that I’d had with my friend who took me. I was looking for a specific conversation about Harry (more about that later) but I found SO MUCH that I want to show all of you (below the cut, but I have a bit more to say first)

I’ll probably do another gushy post when I hit my Tumblr anniversary but thank you so much to all of you for making this fandom bearable. I first kept up to date on things on Twitter and when I joined Tumblr, I was a self-proclaimed “Larry fence sitter”. I followed a big load of Larrie blogs (some of which I suppose I still follow) and despite saying I wasn’t going to be a Larry blog and saying I was gonna mix it up a bit, get rid of some of the Larries and pull back from the whole Larry thing for a while, it never really happened. Just as, when I started to become interested in the band, I said I would take a break from bingeing on them and I never did go a day without living and breathing these four boys. 

Anyway, it didn’t take me long at all to fall of that fence. I got far more than I bargained for when I looked into this little conspiracy and thought the larries were a bit loopy at times and completely misread the situation and the larries. There were a lot of comments by me I passed by in my whatsapp scrolling that made me cringe. It wasn’t easy to see how sceptical I used to be.

TriBeCa Panel w/Josh

So today WAS a good day until that unfortunate news which I’m still processing…BUT

We got to see Josh talk about his passion for film during the panel with two other professionals today. And we were right up front on the side facing Josh so we had a great view (thanks to me haha)!

Some thoughts on the panel:
1. Indigenous Media Film Incubator Project sounds like an amazing project. Just the idea of taking full length scripts and making short films in attempt to possibly MAKING that full feature film is amazing.

2. Josh and Jake talking about making good stories to get out to people. So many great points were made. Brad while not as articulate is clearly excited about taking on his first film as well.

3. Josh talking about directing his first film (short) Ape. So exciting to see this finally get off the ground. Filming and editing will be late May-early June. He loves dark projects and all I could think was hijacked!Peeta

4. Josh doesn’t understand women apparently. Lol I had a laugh at his lament with that comment. Well he is only 23 😂😂

5. Indigenous Media will also be applying this format to tv pilots. So far they plan for 5 short films Brad directing/writing one and Josh directing/producing another

All in all I thought it was a fantastic panel. All three guys Jake, Brad & Josh seemed really knowledgeable and passionate about the future of film and how it interacts in this digital age. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to everyone speak.

Plus I got to see my girls @seboss12 & @hutchhitched. Plus I met @everhutcher for the first time and she is an absolute gem😍

Random side note: lots of people took pics with Michelle which she found weird but she obliged. 😅
Josh Hutcherson 'Excited' to Move Beyond 'Hunger Games’ With DJing and Filmmaking
The actor expands his role behind the camera with his new short film, ‘The Rusted,’ co-starring Jena Malone.

When Josh Hutcherson decided to make a short film, he didn’t have to mount a wide search to find his female co-star: He leaned on his Hunger Games buddy, Jena Malone.

“I couldn’t believe she said yes,” Hutcherson told ET. “I texted her and said, ‘I’m making a short film with Ron Howard. Do you want to do it with me?’ I told her the date. She said, ‘I’m totally in.’”

The two play brother and sister in The Rusted, which is part of Howard and Canon’s Project Imagination. It’s about siblings who encounter some scary scenarios as they renovate the house they grew up in.

Hutcherson not only stars in the film, he also helped cast and produce it. Malone says he’s a natural as a filmmaker.

“It was nice to see Josh in a producing role because he’s like that on set. He’ll arrange outings. He’s very organized,” Malone said. “I was proud of him to see him going in that direction.”

Of course, the two will also appear together in the final installment of The Hunger Games, Mockingjay – Part 2, in theaters on Nov. 20.

Malone knows the end will be bittersweet.

“The fans are so supportive and passionate. Even when I’m tired, jet lagged or sick, you walk on to the red carpet and they give you so much love. It’s really sweet,“ she said. "It’s more preparing to be sad.”

Hutcherson also has mixed feelings about the end of the blockbuster saga.

“It’s sad to not be on set anymore with these people. We are all still really close friends,” he said. “At the same time, I’m excited to move onto the next thing. It’s been half a decade of my life on these movies.”

And the next thing for Hutcherson may not even be films. For his birthday on Oct. 12, his mom bought him a turntable, which inspired him to go to DJing school.

“That is my new hardcore hobby,” he said. “I’ve always loved music. I’m not a musician, but I have rhythm. Every party I have I’m always DJing and selecting the songs, making the playlists. I’ve always wanted to get into it.”


You’ve written for Shameless before, will you do more of that?

I think no plans for either right now. I’ve got a pretty full plate these days with finishing The Layover and also I’ve got another film that I’m going to shoot in March, which is called Krystal. It’s a passion project that’s taken me 10 years to get off the ground and now it seems like it’s going to happen. I’ll be starting soft prep for that as soon as I finish The Layover. So no writing or directing Shameless this season certainly. Next season, who knows. I do love this cast. I’m one of the luckiest guys in television, absolutely without question.

What can you tell us about Krystal?

My producing friend, Rachel Winter, brought me the script many years ago. It’s by Will Aldis. She sent it to me to act in and I said, uncharacteristically, that I’d like to throw my hat in the ring to direct this. At that point, Will was going to direct it and he said, “Yeah, let him do it.” Will is a singular writer. It’s very, very theatrical, it’s stage-worthy and it takes place in the South. It’s about a young man who has a heart condition which precludes him from going to college or playing sports or falling in love. Into his life comes Krystal. An ex-heroin addict, alcoholic, hooker, you name it. She’s on the run and she’s got a son and it becomes this unlikely love affair which of course never works out.

What I love about the script is it’s very literary. It sounds like Faulkner might have had a hand in it in some of these speeches. It’s slamming door English farce with a profound story and a little bit of magical realism in it. It’s got a little bit of everything.

Josh Hutcherson and Sienna Miller had been signed on to this movie. This was the last information about it. The movie is still In-Development on IMDB

transcripts of Tyler’s Sydney panels pt 1

OKAY so this is way overdue but I’ve been like travelling for 3 weeks and tumblr mobile hates me a lot, ALSO it takes a lot of time to type this out. Basically I really do want to post the videos but they are gigantic files because I shot the entire thing instead of breaking them up and I am terribly un-tech-savvy, so uh, if anyone wants to offer help about this, it’d be appreciated!!

But for now, transcripts!! I’ll be doing both days, but my Saturday video has better sound, so that’s what I’m starting with….

Airs Monday 10.45

Every year our producers pour a great deal of time and care into our memorial tribute, TCM Remembers. This year producer Chuck Moore took on the assignment, and as a network first, he not only directed the tribute but also wrote its song. Shortly before the holidays, we caught up with Chuck to ask about his songwriting process, his collaboration with musicians Reid Hall and Eryn McHugh, and his selection of stars for the spot.

How long have you written songs for?

Most of my life. As much as I love movies, music is my first love. I still write and record songs, so when the opportunity came up to write this year’s track, I was happy and excited to contribute. I’m also a filmmaker, so for me, directing the spot offered a wonderful chance to combine those passions.  

How did you start with your songwriting for “Quickly Now”?

I re-watched TCM Remembers pieces going back to 2000, not just as a songwriter or producer, but also as a fan. What were people responding to with these songs? How could we come up with a track to fit in that legacy, one that wouldn’t be out of place among the wonderful music other TCM producers had licensed in the past?

With that in mind, I roughed out the basic melody and lyrics for a couple of tracks before we settled on “Quickly Now.” It was Turner Studios’ Reid Hall (producer and co-composer) who created the backing track. And of course there’s Eryn’s amazing voice. They truly brought the song to life.  

I find the track very seductive. It’s poignant but not melancholic. It’s a very celebratory track. I love the idea of the celebration of a life.

Thank you! I’m so glad you got that. We wanted to pay tribute without being too maudlin. It’s hard to strike that balance, especially for a song about this kind of loss.

Tons of brilliant actors, actresses and filmmakers passed away this year. As you directed TCM Remembers, how did you go about selecting those to include?

Checks and balances! Every year, we have a lot of good, healthy discussion among staff representing several departments. Obviously, there’s a limited amount of running time and only so many names we can comfortably include. We want there to be screen time for each loss and the spot to be artful and engaging.

Also, it’s important we embrace all of cinema history - different eras, not just the Golden Age of Hollywood, although that is definitely our sweet spot; plus foreign film since we have a strong core fan base who loves these international figures. No one is ever dismissed lightly. So by the time the piece is released, every person in it has been vigorously defended and discussed. Every omission the same way.

Is there anything I haven’t asked you about TCM Remembers that you’d like fans to know?

We’re really appreciative and mindful of fan interest in this project. It’s such a special TCM tradition, we stay on our toes to keep it memorable and meaningful for them.

We’re happy to offer you a free download of Chuck’s song “Quickly Now” through Sound Cloud. We hope you enjoy hearing the song once again and sharing it with friends.
