Quiet on the Set!

Take Two: Not Enough Women Calling the Shots

A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Trista with @Large Films, Inc., a commercial production company here in Portland, Oregon. She wanted me to consider interviewing her boss on an upcoming Bread and Roses show, which airs Friday nights at 6pm on KBOO 90.7FM. I couldn't commit right away as I was scheduled to be in Las Vegas to manage a live event for a client; 300 person conference with stage production elements. What's funny though, is when I returned and had a day to run errands, I took a wrong turn and ended up in front of @Large Films' parking lot. I emailed Trista the next day and scheduled an appointment to meet with Juliana Lukasik, owner and executive producer of the company.

Juliana gave me the tour, introduced me to her staff and we proceeded to have a get to know you chat that led to a conversation about the disparity of women in the creative fields; communications and of course the film industry. More specifically, we talked about a paper Juliana wrote on her thoughts coming out of the Boards Summit, "...an annual event for creative agencies, production companies and media to network and learn about the industry from some of the top creative agencies of the world..." Given this paper and her interest in flushing out solutions to increase the number of women calling the shots, we decided to move forward and set a show date in June.

First Day as Assistant Youth Advocate!

Categories:

Today went suprisingly smoother than anticipated! Some talented youngsters from the Young Ladies Radio Project came down to the station to interview people from the community about Food and Food in Emergencies. Two of the ladies went for a stroll to aquire more audio for a vox pop.

I can't wait to hear the finished interviews that these ladies create! They interviewed this guy from the City of Portland who helps coordinate stuff in emergency situations- he was really animated and full of fascinating information. Before we started recording he made a comment that the Government doesn't help people- thats not what it does and thats not what it was ever meant to do. I'm a little disappointed that we don't have that recorded :)

20--TEXT--NOTES for Cesaire's NOTEBOOK OF A RETURN TO THE NATIVE LAND

Here is the promised collection of notes for NOTEBOOK OF A RETURN TO THE NATIVE LAND which should assist you in understanding some of the words and phrases and names which are unfamiliar.

19--TEXT--Aime Cesaire's NOTEBOOK OF A RETURN TO THE NATIVE LAND

Hi gang,

Putting out this script of Cesaire's amazing poem which I recommend strongly that you read.  But just a few lines in and you will realize that this poem requires a black voice(s) with perhaps some black musicians adding accompaniment.

I am in the process of trying to track down a black male (or mixed-sex black voices w/male lead) who hopefully knows some musicians with whom he would be comfortable working.  But if any of you out there know of possible prospects please reach out.  I very much want to have this on the show.  It bites down hard!

18--TEXT--Oliverio Girondo Poetry #1 CLAIMED by Tabor Porter & possibly J

Hi gang,

Tabor Porter has asked to take on the Girondo Poetry.  I also received a later email from J also asking to do them.  So let's consider this batch of poems to be already taken.  It is nice to have you folks snapping these scripts up as fast as I can churn them out.  Thanks.

17--TEXT--OLIVERIO GIRONDO POETRY COLLECTION #1

Hi,

Back at kicking out scripts of poetry, prose readings, plays and such.  More to come as I'd like to establish a nice pile of scripts to work on through the next few years.

Girondo was from Argentina and did most of his writing in the 1920s.  These are some short poems which should be great fun for someone.  I'm half-tempted to play with them myself but I'll freely throw them out there first as I have plenty I really want to do, including more by Girondo.

16--CALL--Do you know an audio-aware person in Minneapolis/St. Paul area???

Hi Gang,

I am trying to get a recording of Jack Zipes performing a reading from his new translation of merz fairy tales by Kurt Schwitters.  Jack has already checked with Minnesota Public Radio and they want to charge him more than he or his publicist can afford.
