The Daily Variety, Monday, July 6th, 2010. In the Insiders section, “Change in the air for kids,” by Cynthia Littleton. Summertime means downtime for kids, but the Mouse House is looking to capitalize on the vacation factor by stepping up its “Friends for Change” public service campaign over the next few months. The goal is to encourage the Disney Channel/Disney XD demo to be proactive in efforts to aid environmental causes, whether it’s a recycling program at school, a beach cleanup day or a promise to replace light bulbs in their home with compact fluorescent bulbs. The initiative, now in its second year, involves nearly every wing of the Mouse and inspires kids to learn about the environment, to get mobilized and to take action. Friends for Change so far has had more than 2 million “pledges” to be more eco-friendly. To enter your own pledge, go to www dot Disney dot com slash project green.

The Hollywood Reporter, July 6th, 2010. In the Inside Track section, “Vet filmmaker’s aim is 3D for the masses,” by Carolyn Giardina. Randal Kleiser, best known for such iconic hits as “Grease” and “The Blue Lagoon,” has become a passionate advocate of stereo 3D who hopes to spread it to mobile devices. Randal met Michael Mehrle, who showed him an iPod that Michael had converted so that it would show 3D movies without glasses. Randal was completely blown away. It was basically a piece of plastic with thin lines of color that sent one image to each eye. It was like the screen was wearing the glasses, instead of the viewer. Now, Randal Kleiser is searching for the perfect partner to take this technology to a new level. Basically, they want to rid 3D fans of their glasses. It will be exciting to see where all of this 3D technology takes us.

 

Backstage Online edition, “Get nervous? Learn to take control,” by Todd Etelson, in the Ask a Professional section. Whether you get slight anxiety, or the deer-in-headlights, what’s-my-middle-name, I’m-completely-paralyzed kind of fear, nerves of any sort can stifle your relaxation—which is essential for creativity and spontaneity. So, how do you avoid it? Know this. You’re human. You can’t avoid your nerves, but you can recognize, understand, and control them instead of allowing them to control you and your work. Here are some tips to remember: Prepare: Know the Material Cold. Shift Focus Outside of You. Chances are you, and others, are concentrating on whatever you’re doing, not on you. Breathe. It’s okay to pause, reflect, and think when you act. And finally, Get Excited! Chances are, you are prepared and excited to have the opportunity to be where you are. Your nerves and fears won’t go away completely, except maybe when you’re dead. And that will make it hard to audition.

Daily Variety, Wednesday, July 7th, 2010. “Lion and scion gird for future,” by Brian Lowry. Rupert Murdoch, the chief of News Corp. and Brian Roberts, the chief of Comcast, and perhaps shortly also NBC Universal, have become an unlikely duo. They seemed destined to take center stage in the arranged wedding of technology and content, helping sort out thorny questions surrounding what’s paid for and what remains free on the Internet. Both of their companies are partners in Hulu, which last week announced formal plans to begin charging for a portion of its online content. That’s only the beginning. Paying for items on the internet. Well? This seems to be an inevitable part of the evolution of this new technology.
