Happy Saturday Stage 32!
I hope you all had a beautiful and creative week. I was catching up on the trades this week (following the very sage wisdom of our founder and CEO Richard "RB" Botto: Always read the trades and know what is going on in the business of entertainment!) and I came across an article from Deadline Hollywood about Sofia Coppola's most recent movie On the Rocks.
17 years after her Oscar-nomination for Best Original Screenplay for Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola joined forces with Bill Murray again, adding Rashida Jones to play opposite of him in the father-daughter dramedy On the Rocks. The film is currently available to watch on Apple TV+, and now, courtesy of Deadline, you can read the full script online!
No matter what hat you where in the industry, reading scripts (both good and bad) is a great way to flex your creative filmmaking muscles. So grab your libation of choice and snuggle up with this delightful weekend read.
Let's discuss, shall we? Comment below with your thoughts about the script! What did you love? If you also watched the completed film, was the end product different than you expected?
Hello! My name is Taylor C. Baker and I am incredibly honored to be the Director of Content & Branding here at Stage 32. I get to help our community share their stories on the Stage 32 blog, and it is true joy personified! If you have a pitch for a Stage 32 blog post - I would love to hear it! Email me at email@example.com with your pitch and your favorite movie + corresponding snack (just for fun!)
A little about me... I am an actress, writer, and professional goofball.
On-screen, you can find me on the award-winning digital series Female Friendly, which I had the pleasure of co-creating and writing as well. Additionally, my dimples graced the tv-sphere on Lucifer, where I played a southern roller derby queen opposite of the devil himself on Fox/Netflix. My natural southern roots strike again when I play Helene on Polygonerz, now streaming on Amazon.
On stage, I'm known as the comedienne "Trixie Treble", where I have been humbly dubbed "Lucille Ball in a Garter Belt". Simply put: adorned in bedazzled ensembles, I sing parodies while expertly executing awkward dance moves - usually while eating a baguette (or a cupcake, depending on my mood).
Recently, I launched The Great Taylor C. Baker Show where I am baking my way through The Great British Bake Off technical challenges in hopes to live up to my namesake and become a better baker. Follow along with my baking (mis)adventures on YouTube and Instagram @taylorcbaker
