Arthur Ashe Kids Day Teaser

Posted by Paul Devlin:

Arthur Ashe Kids Day is a warm up to the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament in New York City. Promoting the legacy of the great Arthur Ashe, the fun event fills the main arena with young tennis enthusiasts who are treated to performances by the greatest tennis champions in the world as well as rising stars in pop music. Talents like Rihanna and Justin Bieber appeared at Arthur Ashe Kids Day early in their careers before they were superstars.

CBS Sports broadcasts the event, and twice I have edited the complete hour-long show. This poignant tease, produced by Alana Campbell, preceded the 2012 broadcast.

Oh the nostalgic '90s, back when you could actually make a living creating music videos.
 
 
I cranked out dozens of these back when I was freelance editing at post-production houses around New York City. Go Ricky!

The Front Man - Ode to the Female Buttocks

Posted by Paul Devlin:
 
Jim Wood is all about pushing the boundary between hilarity and offense. Creating his character in The Front Man required getting as dangerously close to that line as possible without crossing it (which would lose sympathy for the character). This outtake got laughs when it appeared in early versions of the movie, but ultimately I felt it crossed the line, so I cut it. Was I right?

BLAST Production Update - Nick Fraser

Posted by Paul Devlin:
 
We kept our Artist Share Participants (who helped fund BLAST!) updated with these reports. Nick Fraser is the Executive Producer of BLAST! And, as the programmer of BBC’s Storyville, an important figure in the international documentary world. It was great to have his early support to get the project started, and his insight and wisdom to navigate the difficult edit. Without him, BLAST! would not exist.
 


And he’s fun to listen to. We were making a movie in Antarctica at the same time Werner Herzog was making Encounters at the End of the World.  It’s fascinating to hear Nick’s take on the two films.
