Spread Your Tunes on IACmusic

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Music,

IACmusic logoIndependent Artist Company Music is apparently drumming up business, as we received an e-mail from them telling us that they thought we should open up an account. While it’s true we can’t play the violin, we thought the least we could do is let them know that we think that was a noble effort on their part. If you profess be an indie musical whiz, sign up for the service, build DMDs via their Ultrapage, then sell them and keep the profits. By the way, IAC has station managers to help you promote your tunes if they suspect you have talent.

(Thanks, Toby)

FilmCrunch 039: This Film Is Not Yet Rated DVD Review

Veronica Santiago and Neil Estep review This Film in this episode of FilmCrunch:

The MPAA, a lobbying organization for the movie industry, maintains a rating system first implemented in 1968 by longtime president Jack Valenti. This system, with its age based content classification using letter grades G, PG, PG-13, R, and NC-17 (formerly X), has become a cultural icon. But behind its simple façade is a censoring process kept entirely secret. Board members are anonymous; deliberations are private; standards are seemingly arbitrary. Thus, the trade organization for the largest media corporations in America also keeps a trademarked lock on content regulation over our most unique and popular art form. Filmmaker Kirby Dick asks whether Hollywood movies and independent films are rated equally for comparable content; whether sexual content in gay-themed movies is given harsher ratings penalties than their heterosexual counterparts; whether it makes sense that extreme violence is given an R rating while sexuality is banished to the cutting room floor; whether Hollywood studios receive detailed directions as to how to change an NC-17 film into an R, while independent film producers are left guessing; and finally, whether keeping the raters and the rating process secret leaves the MPAA entirely unaccountable for its decisions.

Willa Ford To Play Anna Nicole

Willa FordWilla Ford may or may not have joined the rest of America in an Anna Nicole obsession, but she will be learning a whole lot more about the former Playmate. If Willa’s name isn’t familiar, it’s because she was on Dancing with the Stars. But Willa’s got a whole new gig, as she’s been cast to play Anna Nicole in the independent movie of the same name. The movie will depict Anna Nicole Smith’s life from age 17 to her untimely death at 39, and will begin shooting in Los Angeles this June. After a month of searching, Willa Ford has been given the role, though the producers say they may cast another actress to depict the different ages of Anna. No other main characters in the life of Smith have yet been cast for the movie, which may air on television instead of in the theatres. The makers of the flick have already stated they will

won’t be showing the “trash” (their word) of Anna Nicole’s life and death, including her marriage to J. Howard Marshall. No one involved with Anna Nicole Smith will receive any monetary compensation or profit from the film. The Nasser brothers, who are making the movie, didn’t buy the rights to Smith’s life story – they didn’t have to, because they’re basing the entire film on the prolific media coverage surrounding Anna Nicole.
