First full week of 2014 almost in the books. Here's hoping it was a great one for you.
Some entertainment/news topics that caught my eye this week:
Many of you rang in last week on The Wolf of Wall Street controversy. Well, the hubbub shows know signs of slowing down. This week we have The New Yorker claiming the film will have tremendous lasting power, Scorsese himself explaining his motives (in the VIDEOS section), and a suggestion that perhaps all this noise was started (and is being kept alive) by the studios and production companies also in Oscar contention.
In other news…
Plus, some great videos on the making of Gravity, the recording of Inside Llewyn Davis' most popular song, and the trailer for Season 2 of House of Cards.
Also, acting, set design, and editing tips along with the most popular and intriguing Lounge discussions/topics as well as a bunch of proposed Stage 32 Meetups.
Feel free to discuss any and all in the Comments section below!
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
Stage 32 was featured on the front page of Wikipedia's "Did you know…" section. To see the screenshot and pictures of the soundstage which served as the inspiration for the name Stage 32, click here.
