Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Hope you all are having a terrific week.

In this edition, I have some acting lessons from the great Michael Caine, tips to becoming a star stage manager, and, 5 beginner tips for video editors.

I also have the latest trailers for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Open Grave.

Entertainment news/topics that caught my eye this week include:

John Landis railing against the Hollywood studio system (a great read)
The actual Maltese Falcon sells for a cool 4 mil plus
With Frank Darabont's Mob City about to debut, is TNT the new AMC?
Family Guy fans up in arms for killing off my alter ego, Brian the Dog
The first reviews of American Hustle are in
And The Hollywood Reporter's Actress Roundtable is live

Plus, some amazing Lounge discussions this week which I've highlighted below.

Sit back, enjoy, and let's discuss in the Comments section below!



Pitchfest VII was a smashing success.  Once again, dozens of our writers and filmmakers received material requests.  One writer secured a meeting straight off his pitch.  Congratulations to all who participated.

Introduce Yourself Weekend resulted in over a quarter million new connections!  You guys took things to the next level!  As you surf the Stage 32 Lounge, please remember to take a moment to welcome and comment to those who took the time to share a little about themselves with the rest of the group.  This is a great way to meet talent that could assist with your next project or those who could use your skill set for their next venture.

And finally…There's 5 weeks left in the year.  What are you going to do to make it productive and memorable.  Here's what some 32'ers have planned.










Let's discuss!  Comments welcome below!
