DP Paul Del Vecchio Uses Blackmagic Cinema Cameras and New Debayer Feature on Indie Drama
Jumping Genres on
Close your eyes and picture the first time you watched "The Maltese Falcon." Now do the same with "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." Can you picture the soft shadows and tenseness of film noire?

Both genres of film have very distinct feelings, color schemes and emotional responses. Now shake your head, mix them together and imagine what it would look like if you combined the two. You would get "Trent & Isabella." Read More

 Laverne Cox: It Feels
It's no secret Orange Is the New Black has found tremendous success on the small screen. And for star Laverne Cox, it's so much sweeter knowing that such a diverse cast makes up the popular series. Cox recalls in the October issue of Essence magazine, "At one point I looked around and I said, ‘I don't think anybody is going to go for this, but this is wonderful.' It felt so good. Lo and behold, people really did go for it in a really big way." Of the nearly 30 new series premiering this fall, 11 will have an African-American female actress featured prominently in the show. Joining Cox on the gorgeous "Channel Changers" cover of Essence is Nicole Beharie (Sleepy Hollow), Alfre Woodward (State of Affairs) and Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead).

Japan's SoftBank and its U.S. mobile carrier Sprint will offer a Sony smartphone for the first time, sources with knowledge of the matter said, as the two technology titans confront daunting challenges in the U.S. market. The deal could give a much-needed boost to Sony's struggling mobile division, which last month said it no longer expected to make a profit in the year to next March. SoftBank, Japan's second most valuable company, is pushing price cuts and promotions at Sprint while unveiling joint smartphone offerings to shore up the No. 3 U.S. carrier, after U.S. regulators thwarted its hopes for a merger to give it the scale to take on bigger rivals.
