InDepth InterView: Maria Friedman Talks MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG From Stage To Screen; Plus, Sondheim Comments!InDepth InterView: Maria Friedman Talks MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG From Stage To Screen; Plus, Sondheim Comments!
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 18, 2013

Today we are talking to a three-time Laurence Olivier Award-winning actress who has made a major mark on the West End with her peerless string of richly varied performances - ranging from premiere UK productions of MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE and PASSION to LADY IN THE DARK, RAGTIME and THE WOMAN IN WHITE, as well as her various solo engagements, who now also excels as a director of theatre and opera, as well - the gifted Maria Friedman. Discussing all aspects of the recent West End production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's anomalous musical experiment MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG - cited by the master himself as the best production of the show to date - and now the fantastic Fathom film presentation of it arriving in movie theaters nationwide (and around the world) on October 23. Detailing the finer points of the reverse-chronological tale of show business ambition and its effects on friendships and relationships, Friedman paints a vivid portrait of her process in bringing the emotionally bracing and musically thrilling stage show to the big screen byway of this passionately played, dramatically captivating and incredibly detailed film preservation. Additionally, Friedman also sheds some light on participating in the Haymarket Theatre production of MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG herself as an actress nearly twenty years ago and the effect, if any, that experience has had on her perception of the dense and fiercely idiosyncratic musical now, as a director of the piece. Plus, Friedman also touches upon some of her most celebrated roles to date in other Sondheim shows as well as abundantly imparts her deeply held appreciation and affection for his work and personal friendship in her own life, citing his elemental influence on MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG as well as her career in general. All of that and much, much more awaits! (more...)

A First in Philippine Action CinemaA First in Philippine Action Cinema
by BWW News Desk - Aug 2, 2014

The 80's and early 90's era have seen a slew of action movies from action stars' Lito Lapid, Fernando Poe Jr, Robin Padilla, Bong Revilla, just to name a few. Cinemas were packed by movie goers. With increased production costs and very high taxes for movies, the studios opted for a lower budget and faster production schedules for their movies. Drama and comedy themed films have been the staple of Philippine cinema for many years after the year 2000, especially in the last 5 years. Once in a while an action movie is made once or twice a year. The action movie industry is struggling with many talented stunt performers and actors out of jobs. Jeff Centauri, a Filipino-American independent movie producer/director, has returned to the Philippines after Making Movies in Hollywood. And has been producing action packed short films such as Manila Assassin's Creed, Baliw Crazy Style, and Models and the Crazy Photographer in Manila. 'I'm making these shorts to keep improving my skills in movie production and it would make me a better movie director for the upcoming feature film project, Extra Heroes,' Jeff remarked. He has been putting out entertaining action short videos every 2 weeks online for free. His dream is to bring back the action cinema to an already struggling movie industry in the Philippines and he is betting that Extra Heroes would give the initial boost. Lee Golden, a blogger for Film Combat Syndicate writes: 'Centauri's work overseas is also part of a larger effort to help revive the action cinema industry at home with the current early stages of pre-production for the new feature film, Extra Heroes, a project that could do for the Philippines what films like The Raid and Ong Bak did for Indonesia and Thailand, respectively, if proven successful.'
