Giving Thanks to our Creative Unsung Heroes!

A SNEAK PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY
Looking back now as an industry insider, I have a very different view and grasp of how the entertainment industry operates. That is because of all the different areas I was involved with. Most of it was my choice, but there were some aspects of it I was thrown into because the situation demanded it or it simply was a matter of survival. Whatever the case may be, it all adds to us in some way and makes us more accomplished. - Read more at: http://www.aspectsofentertainment.com/sneak-peek-behind-curtain-entertainment-industry/#sthash.U0IwCczD.dpuf

Our World, Less Funny and Less Glamorous


Exceptional actors don't just enter our homes through the television set, they enter our hearts as well. Saying goodbye to them is heart breaking, as last week proved with first Robin Williams, then Lauren Bacall. In a recent blog post, Ron Greenfield shares his feelings about this special kind of loss.
The Loss of Our Stars
So, what defines a star? What are those special qualities that make them tower above the rest? It’s hard to say. It’s definitely a combination of personality and talent, but the third part of the equation is the undefinable iridescence they possess. That is simply who they are and can’t be duplicated. All I know is that the world became less funny this week and less glamourous with Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall no longer in our midst. - Read more at: http://www.aspectsofentertainment.com/loss-stars/#sthash.GPS3TWHj.dpuf

Let's Talk About It!

 It's not all about what you DO, it's also about what you say! Check out Ron Greenfield's latest post,  Joining The Conversation over at Aspects of Entertainment: "Social, in the way we share, whatever it is, with an immediacy and sometimes urgency which brings me to the heart of the matter. How do you want to join the conversation? And, by conversation I don’t necessarily mean talking as in yak! yak! yak! I mean it in how we go about expressing ourselves, to whom and with whom." - Read more at:

Get your Diversity on!

 In today's world, what does it take to be a star in Hollywood?  It's all about diversity, baby!  (And not the kind you think. :) )

HAVE MOVIE STARS BECOME AN ENDANGERED SPECIES?
The rules of the game have changed but the game is still in play. There will always be stars. It’s just human nature because people will always have their favorites. I don’t believe that will ever change. However, Peter Bart intimates in the article and I do agree with him that the up and coming actors, to sustain any kind of longevity in their careers, will be dependent on the diversity of the roles they take on. - See more at: http://www.aspectsofentertainment.com/movie-stars-become-endangered-species/#sthash.bH9Gzc9o.dpuf
