Back Stage, October 6th – The 1 Physical Exercise You Need to Be More Confident, by Douglas Taurel.


Confidence can feel like such an elusive feeling, but is so critical for actors, for every aspect of their careers, but especially during agent interviews and auditions. Your physical posture determines how you feel, but more importantly, how the world relates to you. When we stand upright, shoulders back and with our heads held up high—what psychologists call a power pose—we release more testosterone (true for both men and women). Testosterone is the hormone that regulates dominance and assertiveness. When we have our heads down and our shoulders rounded such as in a hunch position, we release more cortisol, the stress hormone. When you go to a meeting or an audition, don’t check your cell phone or iPad. Notice the body position you are in when you’re checking your devices: rounded shoulders, bent head. You are releasing more cortisol and placing yourself in a weaker position! Go into the meeting with your chin high and your chest up, and with a genuine smile. Hold this position for at least two minutes before you go in. Notice not only how confident you begin to feel but also how others respond to you. Put yourself in a stronger position!

Showtime is reviving the cult favorite from David Lynch and Mark Frost as a nine-episode limited series for a 2016 premiere. The original Twin Peaks launched on April 8, 1990, on ABC and followed a police investigation of the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. It was one of the top-rated programs of 1990. Even through its short TV run, Twin Peaks has continued to resonate in popular culture. The news comes as television creatives continue to look to the past in hopes of guaranteeing future success as the trend of reinventing and modernizing popular titles with avid fanbases becomes standard practice. Lynch and Frost added in a joint statement: “The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back. We’re very excited. May the forest be with you.”

Variety, October 6th – Reykjavik Report: Watching International Pics Under ‘Interstellar’ Conditions, by Peter Debruge.

Until such time as someone establishes a chance to watch movies on the moon, the Reykjavik Intl. Film Festival looks to be the next best thing. Though the Icelandic capital boasts all the amenities of a modern European city, the surrounding countryside — renown for its spectacular emerald green cliffs, jet-black volcanic soil and massive shelves of ice — suggests the surface of another planet.It’s no wonder so many Hollywood productions have recognized Iceland’s otherworldly potential: “Game of Thrones,” of course, but also ranging from Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” to the upcoming “Star Wars Episode VII.” Iceland is truly one of those places everyone should see before dying, and RIFF is as good an excuse as any to get there for those in any way associated with the film industry.
