ABOUT THIS ISSUE’S COVER
Traditions in Tile and Stone is a family owned business that opened its doors in Georgia in 1936. We currently have 11 showrooms throughout the Southeast and have developed long standing relationships with builders, designers, architects and contractors. Our participation with The Next Cool Thing provided us a unique opportunity to showcase the creativity and resources within our company and our Psycho display was a collaborative effort from many people. Our display was designed, built and tiled in house and consisted of a ‘shower’ featuring 4x6 inch Calacatta Gold natural stone along with a coordinating custom stone and glass octagon mosaic. Matching glass was repeated in 4x6 sections throughout the wall. The famous figure of Janet Leigh was represented by a glass mosaic covered mannequin that we cut to fit into the wall and then hand glued the glass pieces. To finish the look of the space and give it the ‘final touch’ the shadowy knife was added which made the scene unmistakable. The lighting effect was by Higher Ground Events. The success of this display is truly an example of our capability to take a job from design through construction. Anything is possible at Traditions in Tile and Stone.
OBJECTFRONTIER CHOOSES ARKETI Arketi Group is rebranding ObjectFrontier Software (OFS), an outsourced product development firm, to help elevate the company’s corporate brand. Arketi’s work began with the development of corporate messaging platform, which serves as the foundation for OFS’ marketing and awareness efforts. Arketi will also visibly rebrand the organization with the creation of a new website and sales material. “OFS has witnessed significant growth in recent years and needed a firm to help articulate its unique position as the leading outsourced product development firm,” said Rich Napoli, chief operating officer at OFS. “Arketi was ideally suited to help OFS capitalize on its growth opportunities because of their depth of knowledge and proven track record in high-tech positioning and message development.”

Mark Claywell works within the commercial, corporate, and original content markets. Mark’s work covers a wide range of styles from “slice of life” advertising to dramatic storytelling. According to Director of Business Development Bob Judson: “The addition of Mark to Jayan’s roster of directors adds to our depth of creative storytelling. Mark has a solid client base throughout the country and Jayan Films looks forward to representing him.” Darryl Goodrich

ATLANTA SCREENING OF “JANE”
Jane Fonda’s documentary “Jane” chronicles a then 25-year-old Fonda’s every move as she prepares for the ill-fated Broadway debut of “The Fun Couple.” This very rare screening at the Woodruff Arts Center benefits G-CAPP and features Jane Fonda like you’ve never seen her. The Atlanta screening was only the second public showing of the film, ever. After the screening, Susan Booth, artistic director of the Alliance Theater, led a discussion with Fonda and breakthrough actress Gabourey Sidibe (from the movie, “Precious”), about personal triumph made possible through involvement in arts and entertainment. “I feel in many ways it’s about a girl with no voice who let herself be bullied,” says Fonda about the film and reflecting on that period in her life. “When I wrote my book, ‘My Life So Far,’ I knew I’d have to deal with that period of my life. So I went into my room, shut the door, pulled down the blinds and watched the movie.”
BEN CALLNER JOINS POGO Pogo Pictures recently added award-winning comedy director Ben Callner to their roster. Callner possesses a knack for finding inherent truths in the most unlikely scenarios, while capturing candid and natural comedic performances. Creating humor that is absurd yet believable, he effortlessly balances entertainment with advertising. Callner’s recent animated PSA for the National Children’s Study garnered 3 ADDY™ awards and a Telly. In 2010 he won top prize in the Georgia Lottery’s Super Bowl competition with his afro-wearing, talking hamsters spot, in addition to another Telly.

The Challenge When Disc-O-Bed contacted Bull’sEye, their primary goals were to establish uniform brand-building objectives and to create a new company image that was more modern and fresh. And, they wanted to appeal to the consumer market. At that time, Disc-O-Bed’s corporate brand included a conventional, generic stationery system, an outdated logo design and a sterile, limited tag line. The Solution The first step Bull’s-Eye took was to build a completely new brand platform for the Disc-O-Bed company and product. This was accomplished through a series of

BEHIND THE CAMERA WITH
There are times when a man has to step forward to do what’s right, and sometimes the right thing to do is to get weird. And sometimes the weird sticks around longer than it ought to. And sometimes it gets written down...
FLASHBACK : Saturday, December 8, 2001
It was nearly midnight in the town of Crawfordville when a voice rang out in the chill November air:
“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart.” Our first assistant director, Louis D'Esposito, was quoting Michael Corleone over channel one, and every time the process truck made a swing past the courthouse Louis would smile and point at me in a way which made it clear that I should not be surprised to discover a horse’s head tucked beneath the sheets of my hotel room. This was, of course, entirely Jimmy’s fault; if I was going to finish this picture in one piece I would have to take care of Jimmy permanently, which was going to be a bit of a problem since Jimmy only existed inside the Walkie-Talkie. What Louis didn’t know was that two years prior to this film I’d been on a big show where the 1st AD turned out to be a rotten bully to his own crew and was constantly berating and belittling them on channel one. It was embarrassing and unnecessary and didn’t sit right with the rest of the crew but what could anybody do? After one particularly scalding public outburst to one of his hardest working ADs I felt a twinge of rebellion stirring in my soul and from somewhere deep within my psyche a fresh-faced PA named “Jimmy” sprang forth onto channel one, the realm of the 1st AD. Jimmy was always enthusiastic and eager to report the condition of his extremely remote and absolutely unnecessary lock-up to the tyrannical 1st AD, and Jimmy’s muppet-like speech impediment was underscored by a simpleton’s innocence. Jimmy the nonexistent PA would typically “appear” on channel one to make his reports any time the 1st AD began raking his team over the coals, peppering the 1st with questions and occasional opinions about shots. Though Jimmy was a lovable anarchist and gained instant adoration from some of the crew, time and experience make me realize what a juvenile act it had been and I do (mostly) regret loosing him on the world. Still, how could anyone not love hearing the excited burble of “Go Foh Jeemy!!” over channel one from time to time?
The terms “walkie” and “radio” are used interchangeably in the motion picture industry.
I’m not sure where Jimmy went after his very first show, but he returned most unexpectedly two years later for the filming of Sweet Home Alabama during a punch-drunk tour of Georgia, from Atlanta to Rome to Crawfordville… only this time Jimmy wasn’t there to make trouble, he was just having fun. Even better, the 1st AD on this new show (Louis) had an entirely different reaction to Jimmy: he loved him. By the time our crew had rolled into Crawfordville Louis would ask over channel one “Where is Jimmy?? I love Jimmy!! Jimmy, where are you?”. Sometimes Jimmy would reply, sometimes he wouldn’t. Some of the PAs on the crew had started doing their own versions of Jimmy, confusing things further and leading Louis to put out a bounty out for the true identity of Jimmy eventually leading back to that showdown in Crawfordville: the 1st AD of the movie calling Drewprops out on channel one for being Jimmy. My cover appeared to have been blown. The following Tuesday our company had moved south of Crawfordville to the taxidermy-enriched climes of Heavy’s BBQ, and I went onto set to take something to my co-second, George Lee, who was preparing pink umbrellas for actress Jean Smart. I sat down on a bar stool next to Louis and before he could turn around I quietly issued a signal into my radio on channel four then quickly switched back to channel one, stealthily turned up the volume on the Walkie and placed the Walkie onto the bar, aimed toward Louis. As soon as he turned and saw me sitting beside him Louis began grinning; his eyes twinkled with the satisfaction of a French revolutionary who’d just nabbed the Scarlet Pimpernel (or like Barney Fife after catching Goober jaywalking, for those of you whose knowledge of literature ended with the Illustrated Tale of Two Cities). I began to list the reasons that it just wasn’t possible for me to be Jimmy but Louis was having none of that, like Deputy Fife: he knew when he had his man. That’s when channel one suddenly exploded into life with the unmistakable warbling of the real Jimmy, nattering on with some sort of gibberish about a completely needless lock-up inside the honeywagon.
“Jimmy’s in the poo-poo hut!!!” Louis’ satisfied grin evaporated instantly into the most hysterically shocked look I’ve ever seen on a 1st AD’s face. Everything Louis knew about the world had been turned upside down… he kept looking back and forth between his radio and me with his jaw wide open. With an air of righteous indignation I stood up and snarled, “See?? I told you I wasn’t Jimmy!”, before snatching my radio from the bar and stalking off set.
Story continues on the next page...
RITES OF PASSAGE One of the most catalyzing events in an eager young PA’s life is the moment in which they’re handed a fully functional Walkie-Talkie. It’s the motion picture equivalent of being handed the keys to the family station wagon; a great and grand and very public responsibility in which they can ensure that anyone within broadcast distance can be made to realize how incredibly important they’ve suddenly become through the overuse of words like “copy”, “roger”, “okay”, “whaaa?”, “no, seriously, what did you say??” and many other obscure and mystical incantations which are covered in greater detail in the accompanying radio primer (”WalkieTalk 101”). This period of radio-induced self-importance generally lasts between 20 minutes and 45 years, though it’s a widely held belief that “Walkie fever” can be quelled by clipping a Walkie to a PA’s belt because the sudden and unexpected exposure of a person’s butt crack normally wrings the glamour out of the possession of a radio. Studies by the Midwestern Institute of Transmissions (MIT) have demonstrated that Walkies are particularly attracted to water, stating that “the deeper the water the stronger the attraction” (see chart provided by the Unit Production Management division of the Directors Guild of America) and that Best Boys stand the greatest chance of losing a Walkie in water. It’s difficult to imagine the craft of filmmaking prior to the advent of radio communication, and even more unimaginable how those radio-free crews managed to keep tabs on each other prior to the existence of Channel 2. For the sake of the uninitiated, Channel 1 is dedicated to anything associated with “making the shot happen” and is thus guarded with great jealousy by the 1st Assistant Director, so much so that whenever a voice calls out frantically for someone to “Go to 2” for a sidebar discussion, you should in no way be surprised to observe several dozen crew members surreptitiously reaching down to change their radios to Channel 2 in order to eavesdrop on the aforementioned panicky radio conversation for the simple fact that one department’s grim emergency may directly affect the entire company’s schedule. It’s no secret that film crews thrive on misery so long as it isn’t their department doing the suffering.
BEHIND THE CAMERA WITH
WALKIETALK 101 A Glossary of Walkie Talkie Terms 10-20
Current location. Typical use would be “What’s your 10-20?”. Also know as “ten twenty”.
The act or state of needing to urinate. Typical use would be “I’m 10-100” or “I need to go 10-100”.
The act or state of needing to poop. Typical use would be “I’m 10-200” or “I need to go 10-200”.
Channel Assignments – (example)
Each department of the shooting crew typically has its own channel so that it can have internal conversations outside of channel 1 or channel 2. These assignments vary from region to region and show to show, but this is a typical example:
Channel 1 - Production/Traffic Channel 2 - Sidebar discussions Channel 3 - Transportation (”Transpo”) Channel 4 - Props Channel 5 - Backup for Channel 2 Channel 6 - Camera Channel 7 - Electric Channel 8 - Grips Charger
A charging station for radio batteries. Available as single chargers and multiple chargers.
A depleted radio battery.

I allowed Louis to puzzle over the mystery of Jimmy for more than a week before explaining to him how I’d given our prop truck driver, Johnny Poucher, a tape recording full of Jimmy’s crazy ramblings and told him to listen for my cue before playing the recording over channel one. As far as I know that was the last show I worked on with Jimmy, though I did hear that some of the PAs had taken Jimmy with them to their next shows. I shudder to think what sort of calamities that might have caused. You see, I’m older and I finally understand that the walkie is a crucial tool of the motion picture industry and should never be misused, regardless of the circumstances. To make amends for my past walkie misdeeds I am now urging my production friends around the world to begin training current and future production assistants on proper radio etiquette and to expedite the process I have created a paper model of a walkie talkie to allow for inexpensive training sessions. Simply cut out the “On-Set Activity Playset #5 : Walkie-Talkie” and slide the tabs into the corresponding slots. If you are inexperienced at using scissors, please ask a prop person or a responsible looking producer for help. Please take particular care when assembling the antenna sub-assembly and don’t forget to attach the belt-clip (since the paper is so light you will have to simulate the weight of the radio pulling your pants down by tugging at your pants with one hand). Please consult the sidebar “WalkieTalk 101” for some of the general terminology your PAs should incorporate into their training. Make sure that they know the difference between “10-20” and “10-200” - lives will hang in the balance. • Teach your future Spielbergs how to change channels on their radios and how to turn down their volume if they are near camera and are operating without a headset. • Simulate changing batteries.
A directive made over the radio instructing the receiver to change channels on their radio to channel 2. Alternate use off-air might mean for people to take a discussion elsewhere.
• Put a cement block into a backpack and have them carry it around all day to simulate being in charge of spare batteries.
• Drill them on the procedure for switching to channel 2 and then back to channel 1.
A fully charged radio battery. An instruction given to police who are holding up street traffic to allow held auto traffic to continue past set unhindered.
• Teach them to ANSWER the $#!*@!! radio when the 1st or 2nd AD calls out for some assistance. • Show them how to bounce a radio on the pavement like a frustrated 1st AD when no PAs respond to an all-call.
See “Walkie Talkie”
A walkie-talkie (more formally known as a handheld transceiver) is a hand-held, portable, two-way radio transceiver. Also called a “Radio”.
Most importantly, make sure that they have FUN!!

VIP LOUNGE #20
eld in January 2011 THE NEXT COOL THING was the brainchild of organizer Barbara English, founder of TO THE TRADE ONLY, and the executive board of Georgia Production Partnership (GPP), the prominent Georgia organization of the film & television community. Today, the Georgia Tax Incentives play a major role in bringing more of the entertainment industry to Georgia. Since the adoption of a state incentives policy, industry professionals have been scrambling to prove the infrastructure to support exploding film production is here. Creating awareness of the available resources in Georgia was the mission of this event. In order for production companies to take full advantage of the Georgia tax incentives, local suppliers of goods and services must be in place. The huge interior design industry in the state already exists and many suppliers to that industry are now looking to tailor their inventory and policies to become “film friendly” to capture this growing market. As with the new Camera Ready Program, locations and municipalities are setting legal guidelines and permitting procedures in place for location shoots. The program has stimulated interest all over Georgia. More counties are registering with the film office every month as ‘Camera Ready’ to better market their great locations to shoot. Resources targeted to the art department are lining up to do the same. The exploding interest in using Georgia as the location to shoot indie, documentary and feature films sparked the expansive variety of participants in THE NEXT COOL THING. Rather than a standard tradeshow, THE NEXT COOL THING was designed to inspire industry professionals to see the possibilities of the creative process in action. Each resource was creatively challenged and positioned to show off its talents and wares based on an exhibit inspired by a movie or television theme. This past event required prop houses, artisans, design and furnishing show rooms, construction craftsmen and suppliers to create sets inspired by the entertainment industry itself. To participate, exhibitors were required to submit an artist rendering for consideration to be placed at the event. The themes ran from “Psycho” to “Mommy Dearest,” “Interview with a Vampire,” “Sex and the City,” “Moulin Rouge” to “Auntie Mame.” There were over forty collaborative exhibits. Each themed set was created, constructed and installed under a one-week deadline in time for the weekend kick off Red Carpet cocktail event on Friday, January 21st. Members of the residential design/build community and several set designers already working in the entertainment industry completed the set construction. Suppliers of the interior design and event design industries furnished exhibits. Many union and non-union set producers, prop houses, and creators of specialty lighting, sound and effects were also involved. “The unique collaboration of members of all three industries was an amazing thing to watch in action,” said Barbara, “as they each influenced and introduced each other to their unique method of production. I think everyone really learned a lot and they could see the opportunity of working together more in the future.” Where will you be in 2012? For information on the next, even cooler event contact Barbara English at firstname.lastname@example.org Opportunities to showcase your location, your business and your creativity will soon be made available.
