RB's Stage 32 News, Notes, Discussions, and Other Fun Stuff (May 2nd, 2014)

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Is it the weekend already? Wow.

Another incredible week of member participation these last 7 days as you’ll see by the quality of posts in the Popular and Interesting Lounge Discussions area.  My thanks to all who started discussions and all those who contributed.

In entertainment news, we lost a great actor and all around class act this week in Bob Hoskins, superstar indie producer Cassian Elwes slams the Hollywood tentpole system, HBO brings back Project Greenlight, Jerry Seinfeld gets re-upped, Hulu scores again, a cool look at how all the clones on Orphan Black share the screen at the same time, a fun look back at Breaking Bad, and a bunch of Star Wars VII and Tony Awards news.

Plus, I have some great trailers, a bunch of cool acting, screenwriting, and filmmaking tips, and all the proposed and planned Stage 32 Meetups happening around the globe.

I hope you have a terrific and creative weekend.
