news on the march

Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.

Shooting “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (with Steven Spielberg & Douglas Slocombe)
Video documentary at Cinematographers on Cinematography

Raiders is my favourite Adventure movie and this fascinating documentary about its making elevates my admiration of the artistry and creative development in the whole process. This is how movies used to be made. This is an extraordinary account of cinema history.

Someone wrote in the comments:

Every aspect of this film represents a pinnacle for the craft. The writing, the acting, the directing, the costume design, the set design, the soundtrack, the sound effects, the stunts, the effects, the makeup…. And yes the cinematography…. Every aspect of this film is badass. (Watch entire documentary here)

Louis CK Stand up Comedy: If I Had a Billion Dollars
Audio comedy excerpt at Louis CK Dose

You would think the following was untrue, but Louis CK described also what happened to me:

My bank called me the other day, saying you don’t have enough money. And I was like, yeh, I know that. I also am of the opinion I don’t have enough money. And she said, you don’t understand, you have insufficient funds…Well yeh, that’s also a very good way of putting it. I think my funds are grossly insufficient. Thank you for calling. I thought it was my problem that I’m F&cking broke. I thought I was the only one who suffered, but apparently the bank has a serious problem with it…and it f&cks them up I’m broke. And she said you can’t have such a low amount of money. We can’t tolerate that….Well then give me some f&cking money…’ (Listen to comedy show extract here)

Cate Blanchett: Becoming a Distinguished Composer in TÁR | Apple Music
Video interview at Apple Music

This video interview is ‘Wokesville‘ amongst elites at the upper echelon even including the interviewer’s ‘I’m so woke – it’s unbelievable’ glasses. But it is Cate, and she talks about her new movie that my friend Reely Bernie reviewed here.
Australian actor Cate Blanchett sits down with Zane Lowe to reflect on her experience embodying renowned composer Lydia Tár in the film TÁR. Though she is not a musician in her real life, Cate Blanchett molds herself to fit into the role of one of the greatest living composer-conductors for the film. Cate explains how she experienced major imposter syndrome while acting as the first-ever female music director of a major German orchestra. She and Zane also discuss more broadly the impact of music and humanity’s relationship with sound. (Watch entire interview here)
