FXF0503: THE RISE OF NEW QUEER CINEMA: JOHN CAMERON MITCHELL, BRIAN KATES, JOHN BAIR, BEN CHEAH

Posted By Isabel Sadurni, Friday, September 6, 2019

PLAY PODCAST

 

John Cameron Mitchell’s longtime collaborators, picture editor, Brian Kates, sound editor, Ben Cheah and his Animator and Visual Effects Supervisor John Bair, joined Mitchell in conversation about the  the origins and the evolution of their work together. John Cameron Mitchell, Ben Cheah and John Bair joined us via Voice-over IP.
 
When John Cameron Mitchell landed in the downtown art, theater and music scene in New York City in the 1980's any imaginary border that separated an independent filmmakers sensibility from making punk rock music was arbitrary in that his first major creative work, the eventual Broadway hit musical Hedwig and The Angry Inch was born from a DIY  collaboration between himself, lyricist and composer, Stephen Trask and other musicians and actors that , true to the NewYork fighting spirit had created beauty and art out of a sense of anger and alienation of era.  Later, the filmic adaptation of Hedwig was recognized as part of the wave of late 90’s queer independent American cinema alongside the work of filmmakers like Gus Van Sant Ira Sachs and Todd Haynes. . Each of his Three subsequent films, Shortbus, Rabbithole and How To Talk To Girls at Parties also invited us to fearlessly travel into uncharted territories. His most recent project, Anthem: Homunculus, a musical podcast series for the digital age tells a story about a man crowdfunding his survival. What’s consistent throughout every project is that it cultivates a cross-pollination of artists representing different groups all the while emphasizing compatibility and compassion between performers, their worlds and the audiences themselves.

He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 for his play, Glengarry Glen RossOne of the most prolific contemporary dramatists, David Mamet at the time of this recording has written and produced 38 plays, 33 screenplays, and 18 books both novels, and non-fiction.  David Mamet's first produced screenplay was the 1981 production of The Postman Always Rings Twice, directed by Bob Rafelson. He received an Academy Award nomination one year later for his screenplay, The Verdict, directed by Sidney Lumet. He also wrote the screenplay for The Untouchables directed by Brian DePalma.

FXF_S02EP06_SOUND EDITOR, DAN SABLE: Working with Woody Allen and Brian DePalma 

PLAY PODCAST

In Brian DePalma’s 1981 film Blow Out, the main character is a sound effects specialist who accidentally records a murder while collecting night sounds for his effects library. The inspiration for this character was Dan Sable, a New York-based sound editor and a collaborator of DePalma’s on nine of his films including, Carrie, Dressed to Kill and Blow Out. Dan Sable built a career as a sound editor working on films such as Annie Hall and Manhattan and multiple films with Woody Allen. Other directors with whom he collaborated include Bob Fosse, Volker Schlorndorff, Ron Howard and Jonathan Demme.

This interview was recorded in Dan Sable’s home home by Ira Spiegel and Shari Johanson for Frame By Frame and may be included in an forthcoming documentary on the new York Post Facility Sound One. Here, Dan talks about how he got his start in the film business, specifically in working with filmmaker Brian dePalma, how he successfully transitioned from working in analog and adapted to the  tools of the digital era. He begins by discussing the difference between taking on the position of sound editor versus sound supervisor

FXF0106-7 THE SOUND ONE ERA: THE END / REBIRTH

PLAY PODCAST

In 2012, Sound One, possibly the most successful post-production facility in New York City’s history, closed its doors after 44 years of business. What caused the demise of Sound One is a point of contention between the clients, former owners, founders and staff, who hold multiple theories about why it failed financially. Some blame a distant holding company in Denver who some say were out of touch with the needs of the local community in New york and undermined the business practices which required creative and financial flexibility to maintain its base of both established and up and coming filmmakers. Others cite a long process of chipping away at the character of Sound One over a period of time during which the company was bought and sold five times to various entities.

Here former staff and clients explain in their words, how the end of Sound one came to be and how in the wake of its undeniable force created new pools of talent and multiple post-production facilities in New York, all of them strengthened by the work ethic and familial bonds of developed at Sound One.
