Born Lucky Studios

a boutique video production and post-production studio

Category Archives: Born Lucky Studios

I spent the last two weeks editing in both NYC for Cause & Effect, and in Washington DC for Hamburger Company.   It was a blast working at both studios, but a few of my top moments had to be Martin and Kelly’s one liners such as, “Beans are good for your vagina.”  We had a hearty snowfall on my third day in NYC but the subways kept running so my secret plan to watch bad TV all day with my little sister was foiled!  On my last day in Brooklyn, Annie and I scored some sweet yarn and giant needles and I have been knitting ever since.  In DC, my older sister Monica, took me to my first spin class which left my butt sore for days. Totally worth it, though. And I didn’t barf, so that was exciting.  As for work related projects, Austin and I are editing our Zombie film; we are prepping to shoot the PA Ballet; and a shoot in Palm Springs is on our radar for the Century Council! Overall? I really liked January.

I’m going back to my zombies now while the snow falls outside the windows of One Shot Cafe where I am snuggled up and cozy in my giant scarf that I just made.  2011 is going to kick butt.

April

April started off as a month of finishing projects. Early April, we finished up a final rough of comedian Reggie Watts and playwright Tommy Smith’s Disinformation. (In fact, their follow up project Transition will be playing in NYC this fall.)

We also finished up the last remnants of the Century Council’s Attorney General and Dara Torres PSA.

Speaking of The Century Council, we also traveled to DC to film their Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Capitol Hill Event. The event featured TCC’s kids fitness game, as well as athletes Apollo Ono, Dara Torres and Soccer Players from the Washington Freedom and DC United.

In the middle of April, we filmed for ANewMe.org, a website/internet project dedicated to educating and informing the public on the different doctors and their respective operations in the greater Washington DC area.

Panic on the Streets

Not a must see. But an enjoyable volume in the tome of Richard Widmark. For the ultimate in Widmark, watch Pickup on South Street, it really is the best.

Historically, its hard to watch a film by Elia Kazan without thinking about his HUAC Testimony. Fair or not, there it is. (In fact, it’s not fair with this film, as the HUAC Testimony was still ahead of Kazan.) A lot of times, when his characters are speechifying, it feels like him justifying his actions. (If an argument for autuership needed to be made, this commonality could be the starting place.)

But there is something very recommendable about this film. For the most part, the film doesn’t seem too interest in the actual plot. It goes through the motions, but its heart doesn’t seem there. The heart does seem to be in the little pedestrian scenes between Widmark’s character and his wife. These scenes are fantastic, and a nice prelude to the greatness in Kazan later films.
