The fourth season of Orphan Black returned to Space and BBC America tonight, and I celebrated the series return with an interview this morning with stars Kristian Bruun and Kevin Hanchard. You won't see that video up on YouTube yet though since we talked quite a bit about tonight's episode.
Pretty much everyone I know has wild weeks, with more things going on than there generally seems time to deal with. The thing that always amazes me is just how many different things I seem to get involved with some weeks. It's not just that I'm busy, but I'm busy with a wild mix of things almost every week, and I love it.
Tonight's a big night in Toronto for film and television as the gala for the Canadian Screen Awards brings Canada's stars and filmmakers together at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts. Awards have been handed out throughout the week, but tonight's trophies cover the big categories, including Best Performances for film and television, Fan Choice awards, and Best Dramatic and Comedy Series.
The fans were hopping and the music was incredible last night as DJ sensation Kygo took over Toronto's Uniun Nightclub for Samsung Canada's celebration of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, which launched today across the country.
‘Gemini: Heroes Reborn’ – The first good thing to come from NBC’s failed franchise since Zachary Quinto
Do you remember that show from about a decade ago, with a bunch of ordinary folks gaining superpowers, and somehow all the disparate threads become interconnected? Did you know that Heroes was revived last year, as Heroes Reborn, and was to be a revival of a show that had a strong premise, and a lack of direction leading to a faltering, mostly-ignored end. Heroes Reborn did not set the world on fire, but it did lead to a surprisingly fun tie-in game, in Gemini: Heroes Reborn.
The GATE celebrated our 15th anniversary last year, and I'm pretty proud of the fact that I've not only made it this far, but also had some pretty great experiences. Since it's early in 2016, that got me feeling a bit nostalgic about the incredible year that was 2015, so I thought it was time for a bit of a recap of some of the awesome stuff that came my way.
Until last year, I rarely left the house without my camera. Don't get me wrong, I can't imagine doing what I do without my DSLR--interviews, covering events, and all of the rest--but as phones get better, the big camera just isn't as necessary all the time.
Cinema is moving, dynamic, and it's ultimately about great storytelling, and the best of film finds a way to mirror elements of the story. That's what makes a project like The Start of an Ending by Miguel Faus, and First and Final Frames by Jacob T. Swinney, such an incredible experience.
