Bob Koster was born in Hollywood and worked for 35 years in the movie industry, spanning the time from the Studio System to the current spate of Independent filmmakers. He worked in various phases of production but mainly in the production department as an Assistant Director and a Unit Production Manager. He worked with some of the most famous directors and actors of their time. His insights and comments on these films and the characters involved are fascinating, and told as seen through the eyes of a child of the times. Bob’s father was a famous film director so he was raised in an atmosphere of glamour and drama, but he was also distant enough from it to be able to keep an interesting perspective on the fascinating circus surrounding him. An absorbing read for anyone interested in cinema history and the backstage activities surrounding the great films.

Latinos have been part of the Hollywood film industry for more than 100 years, yet beyond the remarkable success of a few, their visibility and clout have generally not reflected their significance in American society. Worse, the Latino image has suffered from widespread stereotyping in film, and performers face unjustified constraints in the kinds of roles available to them. Decade by decade from 1960 onward, this book analyzes important films made by or about Latinos, details the careers of Latino performers and filmmakers of the time, and analyzes how film portrayals of Latino characters and subjects connect with political and social trends of each decade. It discusses the role of gender, social class, and ethnicity in film portrayals and provides an overview of the diverse and dynamic Latino community in the United States, while celebrating a substantial and enduring contribution to Hollywood film history.

The Pleasures Of Structure

The Pleasures of Structure starts from the premise that the ability to develop a well understood and articulated story structure is the most important skill a screenwriter can develop. For example, good structure requires a great premise and rigorous character development. Without clear character motivations and goals--which are themselves indicative of key structural beats--your story is going exactly nowhere. Using the simple and flexible 'W' model of screenplay structure developed in the prequel Write What You Don't Know, Hoxter sets this out as its starting point. This model is tested against a range of examples which are chosen to explore the flexibility not only of that model but of movie storytelling more generally. Writers and students often worry that they are asked to work 'to formula'. This book will test that formula to breaking point. For example, the first case study will offer the example of a well written, professional, mainstream movie against which our later and more adventurous examples can be compared. So the lessons we learn examining the animated family adventure movie How To Train Your Dragon lead us directly to ask questions of our second case study, the acclaimed Swedish vampire movie Låt den Rätte Komma In (Let The Right One In). Both movies have protagonists with the same basic problem, the same goal, and they use the same basic structure to tell their stories. Of course they are very different films and they work on their audiences in very different ways. Our linked case studies will expose how simple choices, like reversing the order of elements of the protagonist's transformational arc and shifting ownership of key story beats, has an enormous impact on how we respond to a structural model that is otherwise functionally identical.

The second revised edition of The Hollywood Curriculum analyzes over 165 films distributed throughout the United States over the last 80 years to construct a theory of curriculum in the movies that is grounded in cultural studies and critical pedagogy. The portrayal of teachers in popular movies focuses on individual effort rather than collective action, and relies on stock characters and predictable plots, precluding meaningful struggle. Conformation to these conventions ensures the ultimate outcome of the screen narratives and almost always leaves the educational institution-which represents the larger status quo-intact and dominant. To interrogate the "Hollywood curriculum" is to ask what it means as a culture to be responsive to films at both social and personal levels, and to engage these films as both entertaining and potentially transforming. "The Hollywood Curriculum is a sophisticated and thoughtful look at the portrayal of teachers in film and television in an exceptionally accessible way. Dalton draws on some of the most relevant and exciting theory to evaluate teacher films and demonstrates a masterful insight into the worlds of education and film studies. This book is a must-read for those interested in exploring the intersection of teaching, curriculum, film/television, and society, and is an outstanding contribution to the literature."-Alan S. Marcus, Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Connecticut; Author of Celluloid Blackboard: Teaching History with Film and Teaching History with Film: Strategies for Secondary Social Studies

"Joyce Wieland is one of Canada's greatest artists of the last half of the twentieth century." -- Pierre Theberge, director of the National Gallery of Canada. Joyce Wieland triumphed over what she called "obscene poverty" to achieve international celebrity as a painter, collagist, quiltmaker, and filmmaker, celebrated as Canada's most important woman artist next to Emily Carr. Joyce Wieland's art stands alone. Her strikingly Canadian themes of environmental issues, historical passages, and aboriginal rights appear in buoyant, satirical images. Her powerful erotic themes linger in the mind. Just as her dark, troubling renderings of catastrophes and grotesque happenings will not vanish. To make her distinctive, highly personal art, Wieland uses toys, paper cut-outs, wood, glass, and pieces of her panties and dresses just as boldly and felicitously as she uses oils, watercolours, and pencils. Some of her most famous works are quilts, such as Reason Over Passion and Confedspread. She made underground films long before Andy Warhol did, producing a total of sixteen. Joyce Wieland achieved her deserved acclaim through unstinting courage, vivacity, and her off-the-wall humour. She was known for tucking away her secrets in her work. Author Iris Nowell has uncovered some of these secrets through primary sources, such as Joyce's friends and family, and through her own perspective of having known Joyce for many years. This intimate, rollicking, poignant biography uncovers Joyce Wieland's life as she lived it, intimately and fully -- through the 1950s "Dark Ages of Art" in Toronto, for much of the 1960s in New York's grungy artist's loft community and the underground film scene, and back to Toronto for the most productive, stunning years of her life.
