Did you know about the contest Avid Technologies has going? Thanks to RONN KILBY out in gorgeous San Diego, we now all know about the “We Fired Our Ad Agency” contest, with a trip to Sundance as the prize. Bottom line – make a commercial using Avid. So Ronn wrote a little sumthin, grabbed his son SEAN, headed to downtown SD with actor BRIAN MINTER and they came up with what you can see here: http://avid.moviemaker.com/view.php?user=arkay2. You can vote for him (even several times according to the rules) and have til the last day of the year. He didn’t say he would, but if he wins, I’ll make sure he sends us all postcards from Sundance!
Remember when I told you that CHAD MALLEM is headed to Tinsel Town? Well, I forgot to tell you he’s a Dallas guy to boot. Love those Texas men!
Caught THE HOLIDAY this weekend and am still a huge fan of Nancy Myers, the writer director. However, I want to bring this to the table: CAMERON DIAZ plays a movie trailer company owner in the film, and she lives in the most AMAZING place in either Brentwood or Pacific Palisades, which must have cost, not including all the gear and furniture, $5mil. I have yet to meet anybody who writes and produces that has such a layout, but I like the idea of it all. I know – it’s only a movie.
