Producers discuss work in television

first_imgStudents interested in film and television must be willing to do whatever it takes to get into the industry, award-winning producers Kevin Fortson and Antonia Ellis said in a lecture Wednesday evening. “Having hired interns, it’s very clear who is a star and who isn’t … it shows who’s willing to do the work,” Ellis said. “If you have to make coffee or copies, do it.” Fortson said it is important for students to make themselves visible and reliable as a good worker and a part of a team. As senior vice president of production for Warner Horizon Television (WHTV), Fortson oversees the production of many scripted shows for cable and reality TV, including “Pretty Little Liars” and “The Bachelor.” When contemplating a career in Hollywood, one could either do freelance work or take a steadier job at a studio, like Fortson. Although freelancers have the chance to make huge profits, this type of work is risky, he said. As for knowing when producers have a hit, both Fortson and Ellis said sometimes it takes shooting the pilot or even airing the series before a television show really takes off. Fortson said he was skeptical of “The Bachelor” after hearing the original pitch. Ellis, who has produced numerous shows including “Royal Pains,” “Sex in the City” and “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” got her start in the music industry working on music videos during the advent of MTV. She said finding the perfect job is a confusing process. “I had wished someone had given me clues about how to get from point A to B,” Ellis said. Her career has taken her from Los Angeles to New York City and back again, and as a result of these demands, Ellis said she has not started a family. “You have to do some soul searching to figure out what makes you happy,” she said. Ellis also said she was optimistic about the status of women in Hollywood — both in production and in front of the camera. “I’ve never felt from a work standpoint that it was harder,” she said. “In films and TV there are a lot of strong women today and I’m excited about that.” Although neither Fortson nor Ellis attended Notre Dame, they both emphasized the value of a Notre Dame education. Fortson said having a degree from Notre Dame prepares students for whatever they want to do.last_img read more

first_imgRadi se 30 kilometara pristupnih cesta s kopnene i Pelješke strane mosta, od Duboke do Sparagovića i Zaradeža sve do obilaznice Stona, pa od Zaradeža do Prapratnog i od Prapratnog do mjesta Doli, a cijela dionica će imati dva tunela, vijadukt i most. Dionice moraju biti završe u roku od 33, odnosno 28 mjeseci, kako je predviđeno ugovorima. Apsurdnu situaciju, da se Pelješki most izgradi i dovrši prije pristupnih cesta djelomično ćemo izbjeći. Naime, izgradnja mosta završiti će godinu dana ranije nego pristupne ceste, stoga su se u Hrvatskim cestama odlučili na Plan B. On se sastoji da jedan od investitora ( Strabag ) prvo izgraditi spojnu cestu koja će se spojiti s postojećom cestom na Pelješcu tj. od Jadranske magistrale do mosta, kako bi cijela cestovna trasa bila u funkciji kad se most završi. „Cestovna povezanost s južnom Dalmacijom“ projekt je koji sadrži izgradnju Pelješkog mosta s pristupnim cestama, te izgradnju obilaznice Stona. U Banskim dvorima prije par dana, točnije 09. listopada, potpisani su ugovori za izgradnju pristupnih cesta Pelješkome mostu i stonske obilaznice, vrijedni gotovo milijardu kuna. Napokon kreće izgradnja pristupnih cesta Pelješkome mostu. A kako će u konačnici izgledati cijeli novi prometni pravac koji će napokon prometno spojiti Hrvatsku s južnom Dalmacijom, pogledajte dolje u video prilogu.last_img read more

first_imgAfter a long summer of acquisitions and speculation as to how they’ll pan out, Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night will open the 2015-16 season with a road game against DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings (on Prime Ticket).It’s time to see if the many moves Rivers made as head coach and president of basketball operations will bear fruit.“I’m looking forward to the season,” he said this week at practice. “I want to see what we have. Everybody’s better.”The Clippers added, among others, Lance Stephenson, Paul Pierce, Josh Smith and Wesley Johnson. Rivers noted how the San Antonio Spurs added LaMarcus Aldridge and David West and how Ty Lawson is now with Houston. “But it still doesn’t equate that you’re better yet, until you get on the floor — for us, for San Antonio, for whoever made the changes,” Rivers said. “Houston, you know, getting Ty Lawson, that’s a huge get.• BONSIGNORE: Best Clippers roster will require best from Doc Rivers“But even though you add all that talent, it still doesn’t mean you’re better. You have to get into the season and find that out.”Point guard Chris Paul, who is entering his 11th season and fifth with the Clippers, would like that process to be as quick as possible. That was evident when he was asked what was different about the opening of this particular season.“New faces, a lot of new faces,” he said. “So, obviously, everyone’s still getting used to each other. But we don’t have time to work our way into the season. I always say it’s good to figure things out and win at the same time. “For us, we’ve gotta come out full speed ahead and be ready to go.”Sixth-man Jamal Crawford echoes that sentiment.“That would be nice, yeah,” he said. “If you can learn lessons in wins, I think that’s always better than learning in losses. It would be nice to get off to a fast start, but it won’t be the end of the world if we don’t.“But I anticipate us doing that.”• HEISLER: Happily, they’re still the ClippersOne of the questions Rivers has been asked time and again is, who will start at small forward? Since Stephenson started there the final two exhibition games, it figures he’ll be the guy.“Yeah, most likely, but I’m not sure,” Rivers said Monday.It could still be Pierce or Johnson, though if it’s not Stephenson, it will likely be Pierce. To Rivers, it matters little. He even gave an unsolicited lecture to a reporter who had the temerity to ask him about it yet again.“Again, I think you guys are far more focused on who starts than me, I’ll put it like that,” he said. “To me, it’s not a big deal. It’s who finishes. I think, if I could change all you guys for one thing, I’d get you to focus on who finishes the game. That’s the most important part of the game, all right?”One thing’s certain, these guys are amped up about what could be a history-making season for the franchise, which has never been past the conference semifinals.“I’m excited,” Paul said. “I think we’re one of the few teams that control our own destiny and I say that because talent-wise we have it. Now we’ve just gotta put it all together and make sure everybody buys in.“Like I told Blake (Griffin) and DJ (DeAndre Jordan), I think the biggest key for our team this year is going to be unselfishness. We’re all going to have to give up ourselves to the team in order to get what we want.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
