She hasn't lost her muchness!

Just a special mention to this young and extremely talented actress!
I watched Alice in wonderland for the third time, and I must say her wonderful charisma and Tim Burton, fabulous, limitless imagination are a mind-blowing combination!

Hope to see her in many other movies in the upcoming months!

Escape from the madhouse

Hi, some of you may wonder what I have been up to lately…Indeed, a few weeks passed since my latest news, but as all of you may know, it’s summer and as most people, I need to recharge my brain, my inspiration and my determination .

And actually, I’ve escaped from the madhouse (sorry the film industry) for a few days!
I’ve been enjoying life during 3 weeks, (no work, no writing) I really needed it, health is important and the film industry (especially its people, not the real artists, but the so-called producers) have really been a source of stress lately.

Actually, the film world has been a great disappointment to me recently, and even if I’m still passionate about screenwriting and good screenplays, I feel this particular period, does not stimulate imagination: Indeed, what do we have in theaters at the moment? Brainless screenplays, remakes, sequels, the same films made over and over again. Except for Christopher Nolan, who seems to be one of the latest talented directors in t…

Financial crisis keeps messing up with screenwriters life

I recently received two reviews for screenplays submission made a few weeks ago, one was for a short script, and another for a feature.
My short script had made it among the 5 screenplays selected by the producers for their next movie project, but it required too many locations, so they had to opt for another one.
Same issue for the feature, « Parker and Barrow« , the production company told me it was in the final choices (selected among a thousand ones), and one of the strongest screenplays they had received in years, but the script is a gangster period piece and was a little too expensive for their actual budget.

Dear financial crisis, when will you stop messing up screenwriters life?
Happy 92nd birthday Mr. Nelson Mendella.

POUR TOUS LES FRANCAIS TOUCHES PAR LA CRISE N'AYANT PAS ACCES AUX SOINS MEDICAUX

Depuis quelques jours, la France diffuse des reportages qui mettent le doigt sur le fait que les Français touchés par la crise, renoncent à leur soins de santé par manque d'argent.
La France, pays des droits de l'homme a toujours clamé avoir le meilleur système de santé au monde avec entre autre la sécu qui est censée rembourser les soins aux patients. Mais apparemment la réalité est tout autre, et critiquer le système américain en disant que seul ceux qui ont les moyens peuvent se soigner serait justifié si le même problème ne se produisait pas également sur le sol français, ce qui de toute évidence n'est pas le cas.

A présent, incriminons les premiers à incriminer les MEDECINS! Premiers gros coupables de ce problème!

En effet, la plupart des gens pensent qu'en payant plus cher ils seront mieux soignés (comme aux USA donc) et renoncent ainsi à avoir recours aux soins souvent exorbitants, certains médecins n’hésitent pas non plus à exercer des dépassements d’honorair…
Happy Bastille day! Joyeux 14 Juillet!

GLORIA STUART CELEBRATES 100TH BIRTHDAY

The wonderful actress Gloria Stuart (old Rose in Titanic) turned 100 on July 4 2010. Look at these gorgeous pictures of her radiant youth!
I so agree with this quote by Rael, (in french and english)

L'éthique est une manifestation des conservateurs déistes et
des religieux orthodoxes cherchant à garder l'Humanité dans
l'obscurantisme et l'ignorance en lui faisant craindre la science
et les nouvelles technologies.
Que penser de nos ancêtres pour ce qu'ils appellent "l'Histoire"
et qui n'est qu'un ramassis de stupidité, d'intolérances et de
violences ?
Disons oui aux nouvelles technologies et à la Science 100 % libres
qui vont libérer l'homme du mythe de dieu, des peurs, des maladies,
de la mort et du travail !


Ethics is simply a last-gasp attempt by deist conservatives and
orthodox dogmatics to keep humanity in ignorance and obscurantism,
through the well tried fermentation of fear, the fear of science and
new technologies.

There is nothing glorious about what our ancestors call history,
it is simply a succession of mistakes, intolerances and violations.
On the contrary, …
