Hello everybody, I’m Desiree Anderson of the Actors Reporter and welcome to the TradeVine. We’ve found some interesting articles this week to share that you may have missed. Our goal here at the TradeVine is to help you stay informed and to keep up with the trades, such as The Hollywood Reporter, Daily Variety, and Backstage.

 

Back Stage National Edition, November 25th-December 1st, 2010. The article is entitled “And, Scene! Quick tips for auditioning for theatre,” by Simi Horwitz. Auditioning for theatre requires somewhat muscles from those needed for film or television. Alaine Alldaffer, a New York-based theatre casting director who has cast TV and film, emphasizes, “In theatre, it’s all about the text. Focus on the language; don’t paraphrase. Often the playwright is in the room. In TV or film, it’s about your image. With theatre, you’re the vehicle for the text.” She adds that for theatre it’s better to be on-book: even if you have memorized the text, have it in hand. Another major issue, of course, is scale. As everyone knows, for film the acting has to be brought all the way down. Conversely, on stage, the acting has to be enlarged vocally and physically. For both theatre and film auditions, the experts agree actors should come in prepared and ready to perform having made strong choices ahead of time.

 

Daily Variety, Monday, November 29th, 2010. “Bowl serving up Peas,” by Stuart Levine. The Black Eyed Peas have been tabbed to play at halftime at the Super Bowl XLV. The Super Bowl, TV’s most-watched program of the year, will be staged February 6th at Cowboys Stadium and aired on Fox. There had been speculation for months that the Peas would be participating, but official word came during the New Orleans-Dallas game Thursday, December 2nd, 2010.

 

The Daily Variety, Tuesday, November 30th, 2010. “Legit lighting adds pizzazz to ‘Burlesque’,” by Peter Caranicas. When helmer Steve Antin was looking to add eye-popping energy to the dance numbers in “Burlesque,” he turned to Broadway. He wanted the kind of dramatic lighting he had seen in “Chicago” and “Dreamgirls,” and who better to design the lighting on “Burlesque” than the duo that gave those pictures their dynamic look. Peggy Eisenhauer and Jules Fisher have now applied their shows to several films. Lights are a dynamic part of filmmaking, says Eisenhauer. They can work like camera. They pan, they tilt, they zoom, they iris, they filter color. And now, they’re automated. Of course some things look good to the eye, but so far, you can’t get them on film.

 

Hollywood Reporter, December 1st, 2010. “When Idols don’t sell,” by Shirley Halperin. Season 9 winner’s new album bombs just as UMG takes label rights from Sony. Today’s pop quiz: Who is Lee DeWyze? The most recent American Idol winner, whose first album, Live It Up, debuted November 16th with little fanfare and even fewer sales, isn’t exactly a household name. That might be one reason why Sony music isn’t crying over losing Idol recording rights to Universal Music Group beginning with the Fox series’ upcoming season. Fortunately, other former American Idol contestants are doing much better, including Allison Iraheta, who only came in fourth during season 8. Allison’s album, Just Like You, is still selling records, even though Allison Iraheta and Taylor Hicks have also quietly been dropped by Sony.

 

Well, that’s it for the TradeVine this week. I’m Desiree Anderson. Thank you very much for watching. And remember, You heard it through the Tradevine!
