    + 2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions List: An Introduction

    Posted by: - Filed Under: Movies, News, Worthy - No Comments

     

    Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.

    Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom DiCillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope for Film”) won the Grand Jury Prize Dramatic prize. Engrained in the Sundance folklore is the ongoing blood, sweat and tears struggle of the American independent filmmaker, which also acts as a testament to the hard-working indie film community at large (shout out goes to the producers and technicians behind the camera). There is a method to the madness, and it’ll likely never change.

    Prior to the exciting announcements that will be made in early December, last week I proposed four days worth of predictions, a total of 80 films (including 15 docu films) that have, in my opinion Sundance written all over them. Truth be told, some are expected longshots, there are the next to no-shots, some will land elsewhere and a good chunk will indeed be part of the line-up. Here is a batch of 30 other titles that we took a long, hard look at and finally didn’t include in our prediction profiles, but wouldn’t be surprised if a handful do trickle into one of the ten programmed sections.

    • Actress Marianna Palka saw her debut film Good Dick land at 2008 edition of the fest and she now appears to be back into creative mode with a pair of projects. The one we are zeroing in on is titled Worthy and stars Gillian Zinser, Jason Ritter, Lukas Haas.

    + ‘The Blind Side’s’ Quinton Aaron to Star in, Executive Produce Drama ‘Halfway’

    Posted by: - Filed Under: Halfway, Movies, News - No Comments

     

    “The Blind Side” star Quinton Aaron, “Twilight Saga” actor Edi Gathegi and “90210” actress Gillian Zinser are set to star in British writer Ben Caird’s feature directorial debut “Halfway,” TheWrap has learned.

    Jonny Paterson is producing the movie, which Aaron will executive produce with former NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha (“Beasts of No Nation”), Tommy Oliver and longtime entertainment executives Bonnie Greenberg and Jonathan Baker.

    “Halfway” stars Aaron as Byron, a recently-released convict who finds himself trapped between two worlds — his urban criminal past and his new life as the only black man in a predominantly white, conservative Wisconsin farming town. The film chronicles Byron’s struggles as he adapts to his new life on probation, while trying to elude the very real threat of relapsing into his old life of crime.

    Zinser will play the eldest daughter of Byron’s new family for whom he becomes a friend and confidante, while Gathegi plays Paulie, Byron’s lifelong pal who hasn’t been afforded the same second chance.

    Amy Pietz and TJ Power will co-star in the film, which started production earlier this week on location in Montfort, WI.

    The “Halfway” filmmakers intend for the movie to serve as a commentary on the fractured incarceration system in America and the serious socio-economic implications that result from recidivism (the reincarceration of released felons for a similar crime within a short period of time). The American prison system has been at a breaking point for years, with a 700% growth in inmate population since 1973 that now stands at 2.4 million — higher than any other democratic nation in the world. Coupled with the discouraging statistic that nearly 66% of released prisoners will find themselves back in prison within three years, and approximately 75% within five years, it’s clear that more should be done to ensure that released prisoners are given the opportunity for an actual second chance.

    The executive team behind “Halfway” supports entertainment that illuminates social conflict, and specifically develops projects that aim to inspire social change. To that end, they have announced plans to form the Halfway Foundation, which will seek to raise awareness for and create more public initiatives towards reducing recidivism rates.

    + Gillian Zinser for Institute Magazine

    Posted by: - Filed Under: Gallery Updates, Interviews, Liars All, Magazine Scans, Movies - No Comments

     

    Institute: Do you remember the first time you realised you wanted to become an actress?
    Gillian: My mum took me to see ‘The Fantastiks’ off broadway when I was a kid and the opening scene was a girl my age praying at the foot of her bed pleading “Please God, PLEASE! Please don’t let me be normal!” I was an awkward kid trying to figure out where I fit in, and watching that character in that moment was so comforting and inspiring at that age where I felt so much pressure to conform to the ‘norm’ but didn’t really want to or know how to. The relief and inspiration that that one simple scene gave me was probably the first time I realized how powerful, effective, and inspirational performance could be.

    Institute: Could you single out an actor or performance that has had a profound impact on you in the last five years?
    Gillian: I dont know about five years, but some of the most influential performances in my lifetime have been…Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of a spotless mind Audrey Tattou in Amèlie Diane Keaton in Annie Hall Annette Bennington in Running with Scissors Juliette Binoche in Lovers on a Bridge Ryan Gosling in Lars and The Real Girl

    Institute: What can you reveal about Liars All?
    Gillian: Obsession. Ego. Lust. Revenge. Murder.

    Institute: You play Missy, can you tell us about the character?
    Gillian: Missy was a hard character to understand let alone empathize with in order to play her. She’s a dark creature, a wilted flower suffering from manic depression.

    Institute: Do you like to do a lot of research into your roles?
    Gillian: Yes. Although I’ve yet to work a role that requires the depth of research I’m eager to challenge myself with.

    Institute: Do you ever become emotionally involved with your characters?
    Gillian: Inevitably.

    Institute: What was the most valuable lesson you learnt from being on set?
    Gillian: Technicality, professionalism, and the importance of being a team player. I find there’s just absolutely no room for ego in this business.

    Institute: What do you look for in a character or film?
    Gillian: Meat. Dimension. A la ck of comfort. Something I’ve yet to fully explore within myself.

    Institute: What are your thoughts on fashion today?
    Gillian: I wouldn’t say I take fashion very seriously. I just look at it as another daily form of self expression to have fun with. I find inspiration in my moods and throw on what makes me feel good.

    Institute: As an actress do you feel more aware of the way you dress?
    Gillian: Perhaps less so. I get so used to people dressing me for the characters i play that when its time to take the costumes off and slip back into my own skin, i’m only left with the energy to be as comfortably myself as possible.

    Institute: Where do you think trends are created?
    Gillian: Through the infectious confidence of those unafraid to beat to their own drum.

    Institute: Do you have a favourite fashion designer?
    Gillian: Balmain. Zac Posen. Chloe. Kimberly Ovitz. Rick Owens.

    Institute: Top five fashion essentials?
    Gillian: Chuck Taylors. Leather biker jacket. Red lipstick. Old Levis . White Hanes t-shirts from Target.
