Black Americans migrating again: filmmaker Naimah Fuller at RFC in Shreveport, Wed, 10-5-11, 7:30 pm

Naimah Fuller, an award-winning media artist and independent filmmaker, will be visiting the Centenary campus as an Attaway Scholar from Oct. 5 through Oct. 7, says Annie Blazer.

Fuller will host a showing of her documentary at Robinson Film Center.

Born in rural Georgia, Fuller’s love of cinema began at an early age, as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all photographers. Pursuing this passion, she majored in commercial photography at the Arts & Crafts Institute in Detroit, Mi.

After studying filmmaking at the Studio Museum in Harlem and working on movie sets, she embarked on a seven-year stint as a producer-writer at WABC-TV. These experiences led her to become the producer, director, writer and cinematographer of her current documentary project: Home: The Great Migration of the 21st Century.

Tribe Called Quest doc gets one night at RFC, Tuesday, 7:45 p.m.

(L to R) Q-Tip, Phife Dawg,  and Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest.
The new documentary Beats Rhymes & Life chronicles the rise to stardom and (years later) the storied implosion of legendary hip-hop outfit A Tribe Called Quest. It plays one screening only Tuesday, Sep. 27 at 7:45 p.m. at The Robinson Film Center in downtown Shreveport.

Among true hip-hop fans, Tribe are recognized as perhaps the most innovative and beloved hip-hop act of all time. Personally, I am obsessed with two seminal albums that they released back-to-back: 1991's The Low End Theory and 1993's Midnight Marauders. I still find it impossible to conceive that one group - essentially a duo (what did Ali Shaheed Muhammad do?) - created these two albums in the course of less than two years.

My two desert island Tribe songs would be "Buggin' Out" (listen via Youtube) and "Electric Relaxation" (listen via Youtube). To me, their music represents an era of hip-hop during which record labels were still willing to license samples, allowing hip-hop to exist, for a while, as a truly postmodern art form (original music constructed from samples).

Young Frankenstein The Musical inherits the Strand Theater, Shreveport, on Th, Oct 20, 7 pm

The classic Mel Brooks movie is alive ...and it's headed here, says Danny Fogger.

All the favorite moments from the classic film are promised, plus brand-new show-stopping numbers for the stage. This wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen) as he attempts to create a monster--but not without scary and hilarious complications.

The brains behind the laughter is menius and three-time Tony winner Mel Brooks himself--who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book.

The Magnolia Special, created by JT Nesbitt and Bienville Studios, New Orleans: a CNG vehicle designed for coast to coast run

"A first in automobile design and construction, the Magnolia Special was from inception a dedicated compressed natural gas vehicle," says former Shreveporter JT Nesbitt III.

Nesbitt has been a French Quarter resident for years now, pulling inspiration for his dramatic motorcycle designs and astonishing car projects from the Crescent City. His site,, provides background and a feast of project photos.

The Magnolia Special is about to be tested in a spectacular way. Says Nesbitt, "On Oct 15, after completing the testing, The Magnolia Special will embark upon a coast to coast record-setting run, New York to Los Angeles. She has been built with this purpose in mind. Every engineering decision has been inspired by the desire to produce a long distance endurance race car that extols the virtues of a clean burning domestic fuel."

Nesbitt says he is shooting for a 50-hour coast-to-coast run. The car's range is some 600 miles. CNG costs are about $1.20 a gallon at the moment.

That Chesapeake Natural Gas declined to support the vehicle frustrates Nesbitt. He has won editorial support, however, from, who ran an admiring feature on the Magnolia in the Sept 2 edition. This week he's being covered by in a story called "How to make a green car sexy."

In Shreveport we are struck by the similarities between Nesbitt's historic and swoopcious sense of design and those expressed by William Joyce in books like Dinosaur Bob.

Like Joyce, Nesbitt is a long-time artist, a capable painter and Bayou State guy of world-class imagination.

Conference for students and professionals in media set for Saturday

Does your work or schooling involve working with the media? If so, plan to attend the Chesapeake Conference for Media and Communication presented by the Shreveport Journalism Foundation on Saturday from 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. at the Bossier Parish Community College’s Emmett E. Cope Student Service Building.

This educational opportunity is designed to examine the current state of communication and the future of media while providing tips to enhance your skills and build relationships.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. and is $10 for students and $20 for professionals; however, free registration is available for those students receiving college credit for attending.

“I think this is going to be really valuable training for the local professionals and students,” said Kacee Kirschvink of The Shreveport Journalism Foundation and conference coordinator. “We haven’t had this type of conference here in years, and it’s an inexpensive way to get the training without having the expenses of travel…and to get really good knowledge of what’s going on in northwest Louisiana.”

An array of speakers including Randy Bain of KTBS; Mary Nash-Wood with the Shreveport Times; Managing Editor Sean Green of the Bossier Press Tribune and the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau’s Chris Jay will cover topics from journalism going high tech, to freedom of information, to what is news and ethics these days anyway.

A welcome from Gregg Trusty, president of the Shreveport Journalism Foundation and Karen Musgrove, director of Public Relations at BPCC, will kick off the day’s workshops.

Lunch is included and will be provided by Chef Elizabeth Dickson of BPCC. The menu will be stuffed chicken breast with Creole sauce, rice, broccoli, salad, rolls and key lime pie.

PACE announces 3rd North LA Gay & Lesbian Film Festival with celebrity guest Bruce Vilanch

PACE, “People Acting for Change and Equality,” announces its 3rd annual North Louisiana Gay & Lesbian Film Festival to be held September 16-22, 2011, at the Robinson Film Center in downtown Shreveport, LA, with celebrity guest Bruce Vilanch.

Six-time Emmy winner Bruce Vilanch is one of the most sought-after comedy writers in Hollywood. Within the industry, he’s known as the big guy who writes for everyone. To the public, he’s probably best known as a celebrity panelist and head writer for Hollywood Squares for four years, sitting in the square next to his friend and client Whoopi Goldberg, who stole the show with Vilanch’s one-liners. He spent two years as Edna Turnblad on tour and on Broadway in the smash musical adaptation of the John Waters filmHairspray. He scripted most of the Academy Awards telecasts over the last decade.

Opening night festivities on Friday, September 16, will include a lavish reception with Bruce Vilanch visiting with attendees and providing a preview of the stand-up act he’ll deliver the following night, Saturday, September 17 during the festival. On Friday, after the reception, Vilanch will introduce the filmGet Bruce with a Q & A to follow. Get Bruce is an affectionate and hilarious tribute to Vilanch with appearances by some of the many celebrities that he has written material for such as Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, Carol Burnett, and Whoopi Goldberg. When entertainers want to be sure to say something funny, they “get Bruce” to write for them.

Other films showing during the week-long festival are Undertow, Wish Me Away, Hollywood to Dollywood, Leave It on the Floor, Gen Silent, Thy Will Be Done, and a collection of original submission short films. Some of the films will be followed by panel discussions. Hollywood to Dollywood executive producers and lead actors Mike Bowen and identical twins Gary and Larry Lane will close out the film festival on Thursday, September 22 with a Q & A after their highly entertaining film which documents their road-trip to try to present a script to their idol Dolly Parton. The Korner Lounge will host a Dolly-themed after-party following the Q & A.

Festival passes and individual tickets to all events can be purchased at the Robinson Film Center (617 Texas St., 318-459-4122; beginning August 15. For additional information see the film festival web site:

A pre-festival event will take place on Thursday evening, September 15, at minicine.

Any individual, organization or business interested in becoming a sponsor of the film festival should contact Bryan Sullivan at before the deadline of Monday, August 8.

MSPS New Music Festival announces roster for Oct. 14 show

A view of the main room at the McNeill Street Pump Station,
snagged from an anonymous Flickr profile.
On Friday, October 14, Shreveport's historic McNeill Street Pumping Station (142 North Common Street) will host the 2011 MSPS New Music Festival, an evening-long showcase of site-specific performances, installations and recorded compositions by some of the world's most revered experimental musicians and sound artists. The roster of performers has been finalized, and includes the likes of ambient music legend Tim Hecker, multimedia artist Mark Fell, and a smorgasborg of about 26 others, including locals like Pete Fetterman and Dacoda Montana. The theme of the exhibition is “Architectural Explorations in Sound” and the concept of the entire show is to "play the building" as an instrument. At a planning meeting last night, event co-curator Bob Greenwood said that two performers were planning to string 100 foot-long piano strings between buildings at the Pumping Station and pluck them using pulleys of some sort. Another act will perform utilizing an eight-channel mix - an 8.1 surround sound system.

The fest will run 7 p.m.-11 p.m. Admission will be $10. Carpooling is highly recommended. If you're not familiar with the McNeill Street Pumping Station, an 1887 steam-powered water works that was retired in 1980, take a look at their website. To get a sense of the beauty of the building, I recommend checking out this Flickr photoset.

Billy Bretherton, aka Billy the exterminator, wins plaudits in NY Timesarticle; judged to be one of TV's "Gnarly Five"

billybadass by river-rider
billybadass, a photo by river-rider on Flickr.

In a NY Times article on five of TV's intense personalities entitled "Television’s Men of Substance, Not Decoration," Neil Genzlinger writes, "Let’s start with the No. 1 Gnarly, for my money the most interesting guy on television today: Billy Bretherton. He’s the central figure on “Billy the Exterminator,” a critter-catching series now in its fourth season on A&E. When it first hit the air, the show was called simply “The Exterminators,” but it soon became obvious that when you have a guy with this much gritty charisma in your shop, you ought to flaunt it.

Mr. Bretherton, whose wardrobe leans toward black, accented with black, black and black, is the frontman for a family-owned pest-control business called Vexcon in Louisiana, a state rich in animals that you don’t want living in your eaves or basement. Demands for his services, though, have apparently spread: this season he has been going on the road, to deal with bees in Florida, geese in North Carolina, javelinas in Arizona."

Congrats, Mr Bretherton.

Recommended: Don Cheadle and Brendan Gleeson in the self-consciously Irish cop story, The Guard

Brendan Gleeson by edelweisskoenig
Brendan Gleeson, a photo by edelweisskoenig on Flickr.

The Guard is a Gaelic takeoff on Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. If formulaic, it's an entertaining hour and thirty-six.

Laughs filled the room at Robinson Film Center this week as portly Brendan Gleeson developed his obnoxious-but-loveable cop character.

It's a guy flick, I'd say. The schtick is gore aplenty with deadpan commentary from the not-easily-understood Irish.

The back and forth between the outrageous Irish guy and the low key African-American FBI agent, Don Cheadle, is played flat. As is the entire film. The viewer is not going to be handed the laughs; grab them as they slip by.

Cannot agree with, where a ranking of 94% has been conjured. Yet I laughed out loud, repeatedly, and probably would have enjoyed more laughs if RFC had turned on the subtitles.

Flash and Dale lost in the ether above Shreveport: new acrylic and collage composition from painter Tony Reans

"This piece is panel #5 out of 5 for one Sunday comic in 1937, the exact date of which I'm not sure," writes painter Tony Reans.

"Flash and Dale are looking for their friend and fellow earthling, Dr. Hans Zarkov,
who is lost in a jungle on the planet Mongo.

As a terrible storm approaches, Flash is suddenly attacked by a killer "living vine," which wants to strangle him to death for apparently no reason. You know how those pesky living vines can be.

Dale tries to help him, of course, and is attacked by the vine as well.

As the two are just about done for, a lightning bolt strikes the vine and kills it, saving our heroic lovers. Call it divine providence.

I've included panels 1 through 4 in the collage around the outside of this painting, so a viewer can, if he or she so wishes, read the whole story. Pretty cool.

And as always, those beautiful newspaper comics from the 1930s have a deep, rich patina and the colors are still vibrant and warm even after all these years."
