Obsessed with moviemaking Synopsis At what point does infatuation turn to obsession? Businessman Derek Charles (Idris Elba) never wanted to know. Derek and his wife Beth, played by singer Beyonce Knowles, find their idyllic existence threatened by an unexpected menace. Lisa Sheridan (Ali Larter), a temporary worker in Derek’s office, ultimately becomes a disturbed stalker focused on him. Once she starts stalking him, all the things Derek has worked so hard for are jeopardized. However, Lisa views the possibility of a relationship with Derek as a chance to fall in love. When her love turns to obsession, she does anything and destroys everyone in her way. Derek faces losing everything when Lisa puts his family in peril, and he must battle to find a means to regain what he once had.

by Lisa Acerbo, University Of Phoenix, Faculty David Loughery could be considered fanatical about making great movies, especially with his latest film “Obsessed,” which Loughery said he enjoyed making. “She wants this guy and nothing will stop her. The fact that he’s married and has a child isn’t a problem for her. Even though the husband is guilty of flirting a little, the relationship is all in her mind and when she tries to make it real, things turn ugly. It all leads to a lethal confrontation between the temp and the wife. I think ‘Obsessed’ will be a lot of fun — the movie equivalent of a trashy paperback novel,” Loughery said. David Loughery did not initially conceive “Obsessed.” Rather, it was a movie notion that landed in his lap. “Clint Culpepper, the head of Screen Gems, had rescued my script ‘Lakeview Terrace’

from oblivion. While ‘Lakeview Terrace’ was in production, Clint called me into this office. He had an idea for a thriller. Actually, he had more than an idea. He had most of the story worked out in his head and as I sat there on the couch, he acted it out for me — characters, dialogue, action, the whole thing. It was an amazing performance and I thought to myself, ‘He’s going to make this.’ So I said yes. Plus I liked the story. Writing the script was a different kind of challenge because most of the scripts I write come from stories I’ve developed myself or with others. I’m usually writing the film I want to see. But in this case, I was writing the film Clint wanted to see. It was kind of a relief to put my own ego aside and just concentrate on filling an order. It was like being a tailor. The customer tells you what kind of suit he wants, what color, what fabric and it’s your job to put it together and make it fit.”


“Obsessed” is the latest in a line of successful films for Loughery, who has more than eight movies to his credit. These include: Lakeview Terrace (2008), Tom and Huck (1995), Money Train (1995), The Three Musketeers (1993), Passenger 57 (1992) and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989). He also produced “Lakeview Terrace” and co-produced “Flashback” in 1990. Looking back on Loughery’s life, the road from growing up as an all-American Midwest boy to a flourishing screenwriter began with a simple love of books and movies. For Loughery, the arts and writing spurred his desire to become a screenwriter

through the back door. The script never got to Roger Corman but it did get me into a screenwriting workshop sponsored by Columbia Pictures.” From an early age, Loughery decided that he was either going to work on or around movies. After he completed the workshop, movies, acting and screenwriting began to filter more and more into his career options. In college, with the realization that people wrote movies for a living, Loughery knew he wanted to be apart of the industry.

Beth, the wife, played by Actress/ Singer Beyonce Knowles, is determined to keep her family together.

script, you inherit characters created by other writers. It’s forced adoption. Sometimes — rarely — the characters are fully formed. But most of the time they’re missing important parts and it’s your job to make them whole. Did I mention that writing is hard?” “With any project, there’s a window of excitement which doesn’t last long so I generally try to bang out a draft as fast as possible. Then I rework those pages over and over until I feel I have a first draft. It’s important to be as satisfied as possible with that first draft because it’s the last time the script will ever truly be yours. Once it goes to the producers and the studio, everybody wants to contribute. If you think your words are carved in stone, you’re in the wrong business.” The creative process also plays a role in the development of a movie script. After writing and revising a draft, Loughery looks at both the characters and plot line. While he believes that good movies are based on both, he concedes that it does not always work that way. “I write a lot of thrillers where the story and plotting come first,” he notes. “It’s like creating a crossword puzzle. But all those clever twists and surprises won’t mean a thing if the audience doesn’t

“ The Unusuals” come to New York by Subrina Hudson, Contributing Writer If you’re tired of dealing with indecisive people then say hello to Creator and Executive Producer Noah Hawley of “The Unusuals.” According to Hawley, a successful producer translates into an ability to think and act quickly. It also doesn’t help to be two steps ahead of everyone else. Hawley started his writing career as a feature writer. In 1998, he published his first novel “A Con-

micide Unit. She discovers that like her the members of the squad team have secrets of their own. As each episode develops, the character ’s eccentricities play out comedically on-screen.

Hollywood Scriptwriter: Where did the idea for “The Unusuals” come about? NH: Well, you know, I think that having worked on “Bones,” I just felt like there were a lot of procedural on television but there weren’t really any cop shows in the way that “Hill Street Blues” was a cop show and “NYPD Blue.” The difference in my mind between a cop show and a procedural is that a procedural is about the cases and a cop show is about the cops. So, a character-driven show that tells stories Cast of “The Unusuals” that are personal and solves cases at the spiracy of Tall Men.” This was later followed same time; so the balance of what mattered by his second novel “Other People’s Wed- was in a different place. And you know on a dings” and his most recent book “The modern procedural 70 to 80 percent of all Punch.” In addition to pumping out three your beats are about the case so it leaves novels, he has managed to fit in screenwrit- very little room for storytelling about your ing and producing. His latest venture is the characters. ABC pilot “The Unusuals.” A quick read of HS: So how did the title come about the show’s title and you know it is not your for the show? typical plot-driven cop show. Filmed in New NH: Well, there is a term in the NYPD York City, Detective Casey Shraeger, played – the unusuals – and it refers to an unusual by Amber Tamblyn, has been transferred to case file, which are basically any sort of out (New York Police Department) NYPD’s Ho- of the ordinary cases that they don’t really

Creator and Executive Producer Noah Hawley know how to classify. So I found that term, and I felt like I found the title for the show. HS: Have you always been interested in law enforcement, police work that kind of thing? NH: No, not at all actually. I started as a novelist, written three books, none of which are about cops, and done a bunch of TV and feature stuff, none of which was about cops, but for me it’s about character first, always. But I think that the thing you learn in television is that in order for most shows to really work on TV you have to have some kind of engine that drives it – a case solved, something in a hospital, you know, a doc show, a cop show, a lawyer show. There’s a reason that those shows prosper on TV because you have an engine there. You have a case that comes in every week that has to be solved. It’s a lot harder I think to do a family soap or something where the stories aren’t coming to you naturally. Plus, I think genre in general gives you a structure upon which you can build. You can reinvent the cop show as a character piece. You can reinvent a horror movie as a character piece. There’s a familiarity to the structure of those that once you make it about the characters, and not just about the plot, it becomes something different.

Make Plans to Break Plans Director Susan Morgan Cooper explores legendary photographer Eddie Adams in “An Unlikely Weapon”.

by Jacob K. Repko, Contributing Writer

For Director Susan Morgan Cooper, making films is about finding inspiration and letting the material discover itself. Cooper, who was born in a small village in Wales, goes about the filmmaking process in a relaxed, flexible manner. She knows how to adapt like when Eddie Adams, the protagonist of her latest documentary, “An Unlikely Weapon,” was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease and died before the film was made. She promised Eddie and his family she would tell his story and was determined to do so. With help from Adams’ colleagues and friends and a few strokes of good luck, his story was brought to the screen a few months later with Cooper’s vision. Eddie Adams is a legend to some, but unknown to others. Cooper provides incredible insight into a man who photographed 13 wars, six American Presidents and many cultural and historical figures from the last 50 years. One of Adams’ photographs was credited with helping to end the Vietnam War. Later on, his series of photographs titled “The Boat of No Smiles” persuaded the US Congress and President Carter to allow 250,000 Vietnamese refugees into the United States. It is not easy to do his life story justice, but Cooper’s style shines as she weaves history and emotion into a compelling documentary. The film released in New York City at the Quad Theatre with additional screenings this summer in various cities throughout the US, including a showing on July 10 in Los Angeles.

Jacob K. Repko (JR): So tell me your story, how did you wind up in the United States making movies? Susan Morgan Cooper (SMC): I came to the United States as an actress and I got a small role in a Clint Eastwood film.

Soon after, I discovered my passion wasn’t being in front of the camera, but with film editing. The first time I made a documentary was when I was in Santa Barbara and met this amazing 16-year-old Croatian girl who was displaced by the Balkan War. She was suicidal and bulimic and wanted to end her life. That night I just sat and talked to her and realized I wanted to make a film about her story. So, we went back to Croatia and in the two years it took to make the movie she began to heal. I had never made a documentary before and I knew this poor girl needed help. I had a feeling I could help her so I operated as I normally do, out of passion and intuition. I would just let the camera roll for hours on end until she finally broke down. I did everything my self, the camera work, the sound, the editing. The film, “Mirjana: One Girl’s Journey,” changed her life and now she is well adjusted to the American lifestyle. JR: What process do you go through to make a documentary? SMC: When I make documentaries it’s like panning for gold. It’s like going to a riverbed and picking up a bunch of dirt, and sifting through it to search for gold. It’s like John Lennon said, ‘Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.’ I find if you have a really definitive plan, the truth doesn’t shine through as much. You miss the exploration and excitement of spontaneous discovery. JR: What sort of formal or informal training do you have in filmmaking?


SMC: I went to UCLA [University of Southern California, Los Angeles] and USC [University of Southern California] to study film. But for the most part I would say my training is informal. I learn best by doing things. I spent a lot of time in editing runs. For me, that is such a great way to see how films are made and to discover the moments

line of fire to bring back pictures. So I made a short called “Stringers” and I guess it was luck or timing that I found (“An Unlikely Weapon”). JR: How did the idea for the film develop? SMC: I was sitting at home on a Saturday night, like the major loser that I am, and a friend of mine who owns a restaurant down the road, a friend of mine named Armando called me up. He said in his thick Italian accent, ‘There’s a woman ‘ere… she wanna make a documentary.’ The woman was Cindy Lou Adkins, Eddie’s sister-in-law. She wanted to make a documentary on Eddie’s life. So I flew to New York and I met with Eddie and we bonded imPulitzer Prize photograph shot by Eddie mediately. I asked him if he Adams in Vietnam, AP Photo wanted me to do the documen-

Your instincts have to be good because basically there are a thousand decisions to make every hour and you just have to make them and move on. The costume people are going, “Should he be wearing this?” The cast people are going, “Which one of these three guys do you wanna higher?” You’re having an issue on set. There’s an infinite line of people outside your door and you have to be able to make those decisions quickly. At the same time, you’re trying to break story on one episode. You have a script due. You have a rewrite due. You have an episode shooting and an episode that you’re editing. When there’s time to sit down and write the next draft of that script, you just gotta sit down and bang it out and move on to the next thing. If that’s not your strength then TV isn’t really your medium. HS: Are you involved in anything outside of writing? Any community work? NH: Yeah, I’ve done alot of work with a group started in San Francisco by Dave Eggers called 826 Valencia. They have offices in New York and LA and a bunch of other cities. I’ve relocated to New York recently to work on the show and I think my family and I are all trying to get situated. Certainly, when you’re running a show there isn’t any time for anything else, but that’s certainly been a passion for me in the past. HS: How did you get involved in that? NH: As I said, I was living in San Francisco for 10 years and I know Dave and his wife. I would go down and help kids with their homework a couple of days a week, and there’s sort of nothing that makes you feel better than spending time with kids. Helping them with their homework is such a mom and apple pie kind of thing to do but it was fun. They do a lot of outreach to the schools and they’re encouraging kids to write. Certainly education is one of our lost causes in this country; there’s nothing more vital. HS: Last question, I know you’ve been busy with filming “The Unusuals” but do you have any other projects in mind that you plan to work on or any novels? NH: Yeah, I have a novel and I got about halfway through before I started writing the show. I will get back to it eventually. There’s always other development stuff that’s going on. I have a feature project at Disney that I owe them a rewrite on. You gotta make time for all the other things too, but yeah, there’s other stuff out there but my heads kind of in this one game now.

saw the enormous scope of his work and realized that this great artist, just like all of us, sometimes felt like a loser, that was amazing to me. The man photographed 13 wars, six American presidents, movie stars - his life was huge. It was brightly colored in bold primary colors and I would love to have done a feature on him. JR: It’s interesting how Eddie Adams, like you said, never felt like his work was good enough. I’d like to know, do you consider yourself an artist in that way, and what criteria or process do you use to evaluate your own work? SMC: Evaluating your work will drive you crazy. Because up until the moment the picture is locked, up until the 11th hour, you want to change things. I’m always saying I could have done so much better, or I needed to have more of this or less of that. But, the beauty of an audience is that they are so forgiving. Even if you’ve made mistakes, the audience gets engaged and you feel their fun, their sadness and how the movie hooks them in. You realize that nothing is perfect and you’re never going to make the perfect film. If it’s 90 percent of your vision on the screen, than you are very lucky. Also, if you have a character that is engaging and manages to tell a story, people will get involved. I’ve had Vietnam veterans in the audience who have stood up to ask me a question at the end of a screening. At first they are very in control and logical and then all of a sudden they break down sobbing. It’s a beautiful moment because you know this film has taken them on a journey and has brought back their past for them. JR: What’s more difficult for you, making a feature or a documentary? SMC: From a director’s standpoint, I think it’s more difficult to do a documentary. I’ve only done a short and I shot it on a 16mm and I had a pretty sizeable cast. I’ve also directed a lot of videos with actors so I find it much easier to do narrative films because I love working with actors to get a performance. Extracting a performance from an actor sounds manipulative, but it’s not. On the other hand, when I interview someone for a documentary, it’s so exciting to see how they express things and how I can bring them back to a moment. You have less variables in features as well. You can learn to manipulate scenes in a number of ways. There is a parameter with features; with documentaries it’s an unknown world. JR: What types of projects are you currently working on?

HIGHEST RATED Dialogue Reveals ANALYST Personalities of Characters Terri Dawn Arnold, M.Ed. HS Columnist

“...sound and rhythm of the language used contributes to the film...”

Dialogue is very important for a story. I remember taking a creative writing class during my freshman year at the University of California at Davis where all the students would read and discuss their short stories. Comments I will always remember when the class read one of my short stories were, “You have great dialogue! It seems so natural.” At the time, I was prepared to write novels, but my instructor wrote a comment on one of my stories: “You should write play scripts.” Thus, I set out to write screenplays, and now a play, because they are where dialogue is even more important. Plus, I figured I should be responsive to everyone’s acknowledgement that I can write good dialogue. Dialogue, the conversation among the characters, carries the action of the plot. It moves events along to the climax and resolution while adding suspense. For example, arguing characters will create conflict and build tension. Also, what characters discuss can change the course of the story. During the writing process, be sure to avoid direct responses such as “yes” and “no” in order to keep the dialogue moving forward. In addition, utilize more complex dialogue to develop characters. This will lead to their personalities, motives, age, intelligence and the experiences of the characters to be revealed. Think about memorable lines from movies you have watched:

· “They call me Mister Tibbs!” – Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier), “In the Heat of the Night” (1967) · “Go ahead, make my day.” – Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood), “Sudden Impact” (1983)

Actor Tom Hanks plays character Forrest Gump in the self-titled 1994 film.

· “I’ll have what she’s having.” – Female Diner (Estelle Reiner), “When Harry Met Sally…” (1989) · “You can’t handle the truth!” – Colonel Jessup (Jack Nicholson), “A Few Good Men” (1992) · “My Mama always said, ‘Life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get.’” – Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks), “Forrest Gump” (1994) · “Show me the money.” – Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.), “Jerry Maguire” (1996) Good dialogue shows the most important things characters say to each other, and can have a profound effect on the audience. “When Harry Met Sally…” is a comedy, and the line mentioned above was a very amusing punch line in a memorable scene from the film. Some movie quotes and statements of dialogue in film have made a cultural impact causing viewers to use in their own lives and situations. Tone (writer’s attitude), which is also revealed through dialogue, contributes to the mood– a feeling or atmosphere that a writer creates for the audience– of the story. The tone can be intimate, playful, serious and ironic or various other attitudes. Yet without tone, a story may lack emotion. In addition, sound and rhythm of the language used contributes to mood. For example, in William Shakespeare’s play “The


Tragedy of Julius Caesar” the playwright utilizes two rhetorical devices: prose and blank verse. After the conspirators kill Julius

“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears…” As a result, Mark Antony has a more powerful effect on the crowd, and manages to turn the mob against the conspirators. Shakespeare utilizes this rhetorical device because it is a persuasive technique used to make the speech more convincing and memorable. Dialogue should sound natural. It does not have to mimic ordinary conversation; however, listen to how people talk because it is okay to use clichéd, stock phrases in a highly rhythmic way, espeScene from the film “When Harry Met Sally...” starring cially if they are necessary Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal, courtesy of api.ning.com for character development. The style will reveal the Caesar at the beginning of Act Three, both story’s tone. The verbal exchanges between Marcus Brutus and Mark Antony make characters are supposed to be real, while speeches to the citizens of Rome. Marcus being compelling, since the situations and the Brutus’ speech is written in prose (ordinary world are real for the characters. It is imlanguage) and Mark Antony’s speech is writ- portant to note that profanity and slang ten in blank verse (unrhymed, metrical): should be used sparingly. Of course, some

characters may just talk that way and it is possibly imperative for the story. Keep in mind those may distract and even alienate some viewers. The same applies to stereotypes. One way to test a written script is to have a table read with actors or people who are willing to participate in the activity. By doing this it quickly becomes evident whether the dialogue is natural and flows or not. The individuals reading will definitely let you know because a script should involve the readers. They should easily be able to imagine the movie that can be made from it. Actors should be able to visualize how they will perform the characters, and directors should be able to interpret their own approach to the story. Since there are no written words to explain characters or plot, dialogue is very important to a television or film script. Everything is explained through the dialogue. ______________________________________________________________________________ Terri Dawn Arnold, M.Ed. is a writer, teacher, and owner of TDA Entertainment. www.tdaentertainment.com.

Nature

of Human Character by Subrina Hudson, Contributing Writer

Main character Karim played by Reza Maji

Writer and Director Majid Majidi on the set of his film “The Song of Sparrows”

Still scene of Karim walking back to his house carrying the blue door Snatching the blue door from his neighbor’s house, Karim hunches forward to mount it on his back. He begins to walk with determination back to his house, but the weight of the door gradually takes its toll. The camera zooms in on Karim’s sweaty face as you hear his labored breathing. After awhile, an aerial shot shows Karim’s blue door lurching forward across a vast field. It looks as though the door decided it was time to walk back to its rightful owner, but we

simply cannot see Karim as he is hidden under the door. Despite the physical change, a look of greed and determination remains fixed in his eyes as he struggles to walk back home. Karim is an ostrich farmer who quickly loses his job when an ostrich escapes into the desert hills. He is also the main character in Writer and Director Majid Majidi’s film “The Song of Sparrows.” Karim not only needs money to continue supporting his

18

family, but he also has to repair his daughter Haniyeh’s expensive hearing aid. In order to fix it, Karim must travel from the countryside to Tehran. It is in the city that he stumbles into a job which grows to be lucrative. Yet throughout the film, the renegade ostrich continues to haunt him. According to Majidi, the idea for the film came about after making a visit to an ostrich farm. He became acquainted with a worker who was serene and satisfied with life. “He was a recluse and quiet person but was so close to the ostriches that he used to speak to them in a way that they seemed to understand him…He did not have a complaint in the world, although his difficult circumstances could have turned him into an unhappy, pessimistic and rebellious person. What was the reason for his calmness, optimism and kindness?” Majidi said. This led him to questions of whether such a man would survive in the modern world.


Karim’s son Hussein and friend lose their prized fish

Director Majid Majidi coaching actor Reza Maji Majidi could have used dialogue to get his point across about humans and modernization. However, rather than telling the audience Majidi shows them by using more imagery. The film opens with music and shots of ostriches and the Iranian countryside. “It is more about aspects of the affect of modernization in the human life, and the nature in the village that you see in the beginning of the film is a reflection of the main character of the film. And actually nature is acting like a character in the film. And you see that when the main character, Karim, goes to the city and loses his own kind of identity and he changes his own character; he’s not anymore an honest, simple person – even that nature place of him gets destroyed,” Majidi said. It is difficult to understand how locations can be seen as characters in a movie. Majidi explains that showing the landscape changing in direct relation to Karim’s changing attitude and behavior was a way to explain Karim’s spirit. “When Karim confronts the city, the fields lose their color and change. Nature also dies; the lush green and beauty of the field turns to a blackened dessert…when Karim is injured and confined to his home, he is forced to observe the efforts of his family and neighbors. Some of these people are the same neighbors he dis-

missed earlier, having deemed them unworthy to possess a wooden blue door, which holds significance in this [Iranian] culture,” Majidi said. The actor’s in the film behave so naturally it is a surprise to learn that all of them, with the exception of Karim played by Reza Maji, are not professional actors. Next to a good script, having the right actors is always important for a director. “Because I mostly use non-professionals, the task becomes even more difficult, whether in terms of finding them or coaching a performance in front of the camera. But, I am of the belief that more than fifty percent of successful casting resides in proper selection. The other fifty percent concerns their performance in front of the camera, which in my experience over many years I have found to depend on creating a suitable environment that matches their personality and fits their role in the film.”

His biggest American influence is John Ford. He finds that Ford’s films have “such a freshness that never gets old.” Each time he is able to find something new. However, the main source of inspiration for Majidi is from people’s lives and their experiences. This is evident when looking back on his past films. Born in Tehran in 1959, Majidi began acting when he was a teenager but his interest in acting eventually transitioned into a passion for making films. In 1991, he wrote and directed his first feature film “Baduk,” which is the name for children who smuggle merchandise across Pakistan’s border. The film was victim to Iranian censors and therefore received little exposure at home, but it did make it to the 1992 Cannes’ Directors Fortnight. One of his best known films, “Chilcont’d on pg 20 Photos courtesy of Regent Releasing

He explains that Iranian culture and US culture have similarities in that they both emphasize the importance of family, whereas in Europe it is more focused on the individual. In the film, Karim becomes swept up in his business and forgets what is most important in life. He constantly rebukes his son and their friends for attempting to clean out a filthy watering hole in order to make it a fish pond. He becomes irritated when his wife mentions them helping their neighbors. When Karim is injured, he is stuck inside the house and left to stare at what goes on outside his house. He is forced to acknowledge the kindness of his neighbors as they come to help his wife and children. His young son, Hussein, takes on the role of the breadwinner. One night while his family was asleep, Karim notices the swollen and blistered hands of his son. It is scenes such as these that drive Majidi’s point home. “This is not a film against modernization. This is actually showing that modernization, instead of serving the human being, starts to use the human being and if that happens that’s where the trouble starts. That’s where the danger and the risk for our society today exists and that’s where the trouble is,” Majidi said.
