Almost Hollywood, Nearly New Orleans: The Lure of the Local Film Economy

by Vicki Mayer

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Early in the twenty-first century, Louisiana, one of the poorest states in the United States, redirected millions in tax dollars from the public coffers in an effort to become the top location site globally for the production of Hollywood films and television series. Why would lawmakers support such a policy? Why would citizens accept the policy’s uncomfortable effects on their economy and culture? Almost Hollywood, Nearly New Orleans addresses these questions through a study of the local and everyday experiences of the film economy in New Orleans, Louisiana—a city that has twice pursued the goal of becoming a mov...

RC and RUBY Screenplay

by Charles Frankhauser

A treatment and screenplay for a feature length film is based on a premise that it's unwise to allow romantic attractions to cloud one's judgment in regard to abandonment of being a law abiding person. RC's legal record is clean until he meets a showgirl named RUBY. The pursuit of romance is a new experience for them both, but RUBY is more than the brave rider in a horse-diving act on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. She was raised in a Hitler Youth Camp to be a German spy working with U-boats near America prior to World War II. RC and RUBY'S involvements in crime increase until a tragedy of epic proportions stresses them beyond their capabilities to cope....

Camus, Ibsen, Kurosawa, Teshigahara and the Meaning of Life

by Clinton LeFort

Albert Camus, Kurosawa, Ibsen and Teshigahara all reflected upon the meaning of life in their writings and films. Kurosawa’s film Ikiru tells the tale of twenty-five year old veteran who works for a business as a proofreader. His job daily is making sure that each piece of paper that is placed on top of his desk is stamped with a rubber stamp. It is a simple task. A task that anyone on earth could do, yet he doesn’t see that after twenty-five long years that his life has any meaning at all. Kurosawa begins to build the tension for this man by adding some additional concerns for this gentleman. He goes to the doctor and he will learn that he is dying of stomach cancer. In seconds; the man’s life comes crashing down. Now what is a person supposed to do at this stage in life? Is he to s...

Merlinsky: The Sorcerer's Apprentice

by Alan C. Baird

Imagine the Lord of the Rings meets Harry Potter and they go back to the future. Based on the Arthurian legend and the ancient folklore myth of the sorcerer's apprentice.

Synopsis: The endless hordes of Hollywood tourists in the late 1940's are easy marks for a con-man magician like Harry Merlinsky. He knows how to sucker the rubes and flash the ol' hamster-outta-the-fedora every now and then, to baffle 'em and dazzle 'em. But he didn't expect a naive fan like Jake, who wants to learn Harry's Old Knowledge - "real" magic. Harry's archenemy obliterates Jake's girlfriend, forcing Jake to become a wizard, just to stay alive. Will Jake use his newfound powers for vengeance? The timeless myth of the Sorcerer's Apprentice unfolds against the backdrop of the Magic Castle and the Holl...

Harmony of disenchantment

by Rosario Di Petta

The look of a disenchanted neapolitan violinist is the thread that connects the nodes of its existence. The magic of Budapest as a backdrop to the sinking of his illusions; yet it is precisely the ability to react to any defeat will make him a kind of skillful surfer, able to ride the waves most impressive. In this eternal resume lies, perhaps, the harmony that governs his life....

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure (Performance Philosophy)

by Susanne Granzer

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure combines the author's two main biographical paths: her professional commitment to the fields of both theatre and philosophy. The art of acting on stage is analysed here not only from the theoretical perspective of a spectator, but also from the perspective of the actor. The author draws on her experience as both a theatre actor and a university professor whose teachings in the art of acting rely heavily on her own experience and also on her philosophical knowledge. The book is unique not only in terms of its content but also in terms of its style. Written in a multiplicity of voices, the text oscillates between philosophical reasoning and narrative forms of writing, including micro-narratives, fables, parables, and inter alia by Carroll, Ho...

Vlad the Impaler: Son of Dracul

by Alan C. Baird

Many will assume this is just another retelling of the "Dracula" horror myth... but Vlad's story is true. Hitler's Holocaust killed approximately 10% of Germany's people, while some estimates claim that Vlad exterminated more than 20% of his fellow Wallachians. A gruesome genre-bender with perverse humor, based on 15th-century history. Warning: graphic transgressive violence....

Eleven Thousand Virgins: Hildegard von Bingen's Last Chants

by Alan C. Baird

"Field of Dreams" with medieval chant music in place of baseball.

Synopsis: Alex Barnett has a comfortable life in Los Angeles and San Francisco; it's probably too comfortable, although he can't quite admit to himself that an extended separation from his wife Nicole eats at his soul. An unusual set of seemingly unrelated circumstances impels him to seek out a centuries-abandoned monastery in southwest Germany, where he confronts the animate image of Hildegard von Bingen, the legendary twelfth-century mystic, prophet, and composer of ravishing liturgical chants. Although his friend Lars believes it's a bona-fide vision, much like the visions that fueled Hildegard's own creativity, Alex cynically distrusts his deepest instincts and drives himself to search for a more acceptable ...

It's Alive!: The Science of B-Movie Monsters (Chicago Shorts)

by Michael LaBarbera

The B-movie monster—be it gap-toothed gorilla, ripped-from-time dinosaur, overstretched arachnid, or another outrageous anthropomorphic fantasy—has thrilled moviegoers for decades, and firmly sunk its claws into popular culture. In It’s Alive!, Michael LaBarbera delves into the science behind these characters’ construction, from the biology surrounding tyrannosaurid postures in Jurassic Park and King Kong to the questionable physics employed by The Incredible Shrinking Man. Accompanied by a treasure trove of images from old movie posters and stills, and ranging from the 1930s to such recent films as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the latest installments of the Alien franchise, It’s Alive! cleverly uses science to remind us that the best parts of moviemaking might indeed be mag...

Isolation Is Overrated - 8 Steps to Stress-Free Living With Roommates

by Edward Green

Ask anyone that’s ever lived with roommates if they have any horror stories, and they’ll likely have their fair share. We’ve all got a horror story or two - from moving in with friends or relatives, to sharing an apartment with people that started out as complete strangers, there always seemed to be some level of craziness that we found ourselves living with at one point or another. The main reason why I wrote this eBook is because I know that a great many of the bad experiences people have had while living with roommates could have easily been avoided had they just done some things a little differently. Just in the small ways we interact (or don’t interact) with the people we live with can, many times, be the very root of all those roommate horror stories we've come away with. So ...
