Fred and Vinnie - Not Just Another Buddy Film

user
Not Just Another Buddy Film By Kimberly Deisler We’ve all know this guy. Mine was “Buck-Fifty Bob.” We’d met on the beach in Jupiter, Florida and immediately had something in common, I was minding my own business and he was too. Let me back track. As usual, my day/life was in the shitter and I’d decided to spend some retrospective time on the beach. It’s always been my place of refuge and solace. With miles of beach to be had this guy decides to get all up ...

NOTE TO SELF:

user
Note To Self:by Kimberly Deisler  The one thing I really love about the LA ComedyShorts Film Festival, well, there are many things, but in particular are thepanels.  While I may have mentionedthis before it bears repeating because the panelists are the most honest,irreverent and hilarious.  Youlearn a lot, you get it straight and you know exactly where you stand … in along line of other people trying to get jobs in the industry.   The hunger of interest in the audience is palatableunlike...

Winding Down

user
Winding Down By Kimberly Deisler Could it possibly be day ten already? While the week was excruciatingly long in that everyone’s exhausted and choking with some kind of cough or cold, we’re finally here … on the last day of the festival. Although most of the world considers this to be Valentine’s Day, those in Santa Barbara are celebrating the local sweetheart with Jeff Bridges Day by screening all of his Oscar nominated films, The Last Picture Show, Thunderbolt...

Poisoned Malice in Santa Barbara

user
Poisoned Malice By Kimberly Deisler   At the risk of seeming self indulgent, this post is going to track my last two days in hopes of making a couple of points. After screening 8: The Mormon Proposition, I was seething with such anger that had I run into a Mormon at that moment, I would have given ‘em a good slap in the back of the head. But I’ll come back to this in a minute.             ...

Will You Marry Him?

user
“Will You Marry Him?” By Kimberly Deisler And you thought you had a lot of friends on Facebook? One annoying aspect about working the film festival is how many actual friends, and those other pesky types who only “know” you when they want something, suddenly emerge from the woodwork when a particular guest or event appeals to them. Regardless of the level of intimacy, I honestly do try to accommodate as many people as possible, but there are those times when request...

That F-#%@$% Guy

user
    By Kimberly DeislerMy husband is annoyed with me. Not for the usual reasons husbands get upset with wives, like spending too much money or the house being messy. He’s upset with me because I keep updating that clause in our marriage. You know the one, the NCIHBIIDCC or the No Chance In Hell But If It Did Celebrity Clause where upon you’re not allowed to cheat on your spouse with anyone other than a celebrity and that celebrity has to be on the list, a list of only five na...

Inspiration

user
Ok, so if you know me and you’ve been following my blog on Santa Barbara, you’re probably wondering why I’ve been so ‘mild’ thus far. (I love using ‘thus’ in a blog) Well, that’s because, while all the events are exciting in themselves and have a collective energy that rivals something you’d find at an amusement park, frankly, I’ve been pacing myself … until today.  Inspiration By Kimberly Deisler In the ten years I’ve been working this festival, the writers panel, ...

"Precious" moments at AFI

user
Last night the AFI hosted a star studded, red carpet affair introducing the world to Clarice "PRECIOUS" Jones, directed by Lee Daniels.

Blige, Nick Cannon, Sidney Hicks, Gayle King, Paula Abdul, Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria Parker, Will Smith, Forest &...

LA Comedy Shorts : Sponsor This!

user
After incredible panels, packing the theater three separate times for Shorts blocks, and a kick-ass party sponsored by Lucky Strike Lanes, Friday night at the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival was the place to be. It was criminal to have that much fun in one day, but with the economy being what it is, crime is on the rise, whataya gonna do? Speaking of sponsors and a struggling economy, hats off to the impressive list of sponsors garnered by the little festival that is kicking ass and dropping nam...

LA Comedy Shorts SMART ASK

user
Saturday started off at 10:00 a.m., crack-of-butt-early for comics and Hollywoodies, but dark glasses and stellar panelists John Elliot and M. Riley, Mosaic Media, Daniel Weidenfeld, Comedy Central’s Chocolate News, and Ian Friedman, Manager of Content Development for Atom.com made it worth everyone’s while as they dispersed valuable insights on the how-to-do’s of the industry.This goes down as one of the best and most informative panels because of the passion these men have for comedy and...

The producers panel aptly named “Movers and Shakers,” included Charles Roven-Dark Knight, Christian Colson-Slumdog Millionaire, Dan Jinks-Milk, Jim Morris-Wall-E, Neda Armian-Rachel Getting Married were asked questions by Los Angeles Times writer Pat Goldstein that pried open Pandora’s industry box and let fly what it takes to bring a film from concept to fruition. First question went to Slumdog’s Christian Colson about the recent criticism regarding the youngest lead actors of the film...
