Madeleine Kirsh, known as the Grande Dame of vintage fashion in Miami, is as unique an individual as the items she sells in her store - C. Madeleine’s. The fiery redhead is always ready to express her opinion and her personality is one you will never forget. | A native Floridian, her background has always been in design and fashion. Her mother was a leading interior decorator in Palm Beach who, along with her father, owned a large furniture store. She was able to spend more time with her busy mother by helping her in business where she developed a keen sense of style and an appreciation for quality. Whenever asked she would go on buying trips to Atlanta, Dallas, High Point, Chicago and New York. There was always time on these journeys for a visit to the upscale boutiques in each city. Here she learned of the similarity between interior design and fashion where the major components of each field so closely parallel the other. | | Besides her mother, Madeleine was also very strongly influenced by her grandmother, a wedding dress designer in New York. She spent hours with her learning about fabrics, design and structure; elements which became integral parts of her fashion philosophy. Although she went to college for interior design and had a successful career in the New York area which she put aside when her son was born, her real passion was fashion. She always followed it closely and when the opportunity came for her to enter the field, she jumped in with the same all in gusto she faced life. Her passion was finally her career. | Over the past 12+ years, Madeleine has built her C... Read More →

BOBBY ROTH MASTERCLASS

This intimate Masterclass includes a certificate of completion signed by Director Bobby Roth at the conclusion of the seminar. During the mastercass Mr. Roth will share excerpts from his 10 episode series "Bobby Roth: A Director Prepares."

A Director Prepares takes viewers on a journey through every stage of film production. We tell the story of how film is made from the unprecedented perspective of one working director’s collaborations with over fifty industry professionals––all of whom have worked with Bobby on at least one project.

These extensive interviews include actors, showrunners, editors, cinematographers, and more. Paired with never-before-seen B-Roll, Bobby’s own production documents (such as scripts, shot lists, and storyboards), and clips from dozens of finished shows, A Director Prepares compresses an entire film school education into a ten-part series.

Through case studies from Bobby’s diverse and extensive background in both film and television, we examine the whole process from script to shot list to dailies to finished product. We compare Bobby’s work on iconic television shows like Lost, Prison Break, and Grey’s Anatomy, to his own independent features, such as Heartbreakers, Jack the Dog, Berkeley, and Manhood, and showcase the different learning experiences that directing television can offer for independent filmmakers, and vice versa.

This dual approach is unique to documentaries about directing, and offers a fresh platform for learning the craft.

We emphasize the extensive preparation and time-management needed for the frenetic pace of network drama, the creative freedom and possibilities of independent cinema, and the ways these complement each other. Interviews with industry professionals on both sides of the film and television divide reveal the ways television directing makes you a more efficient filmmaker, and that bringing to television the humanist storytelling of independent cinema makes you a better visionary on the small screen, as well.

At the core of Bobby’s method in both film and television is the dictum to prepare extensively in order to be present for the actors during production.

A Director Prepares is divided into ten episodes of about twenty minutes apiece, each detailing a key stage of filmmaking. We begin with breaking down a script and collaborating with casting directors, production designers and cinematographers. We then move into several episodes on production and how to get actors to do what you want. Later episodes detail issues of post-production, with a focus on working with editors, and the final episode addresses the business element: how to get hired and how to get brought back to shows.

Knights of New Jersey: Webseries Episode 1

Knights of New Jersey is a comedic, behind-the-scenes look at a troupe of Renaissance Faire actors and the passions, aspirations and petty humiliations that arise as they attempt to bring their vision to life. A mashup of "The Office" and "Medieval Times," Knights brings us into the unique, make-believe world of the Faire, where Game of Thrones cosplay fans, Steampunk divas and weekend Wizards mingle with Mundanes—aka normal people. Friendships are strained, love blossoms and politics trumps all. Funny, cringe-inducing and yeah, occasionally heart-warming, Knights shows us the make-believe world of the Faire—perhaps one of the few places in New Jersey where virtues like courage, honor and leadership are real.

Mimosas with #Millie

MIMOSAS WITH MILLIE is a comedic slife (slice of life), satirizing conversations over mimosas between Millie, an entitled and highly opinionated Millennial, and her best friend Becky. For 24 years MILLIE has been living in a warm cocoon of privilege surrounded by the 4,000 plus square feet of her father’s Hollywood Hills home. Armed with lofty goals and even more inflated expectations Millie and her friend BECKY spend their final days poolside before venturing outside her Father's security gates and into the real world. Let’s be honest, we all hate to love and love to hate the stereotypical Millennial, almost as much as they love to hate and love to love themselves. At work, GenXers want to bitchslap them, at home, Boomers want them out of the house, and when polled only 40% of Millennials themselves were willing to identify with the Millennial label. 59% however, did agree they were self-absorbed. Online Millennials rule, and can’t get enough content that speaks to them in their streams. The Jenner sisters Kylie, and Kendal boast a combined 175.5M followers on Instagram.. America’s thought leaders such as Oprah, Barrack Obama and Elon Musk have a mere 25.3M followers combined. The first season of Mimosas with Millie, comprised of four two minute comedic webisodes, each satirizing millennial world views on topics ranging from jobs to religion and abortion with the expectation that someday they will have to move out of their families homes, offline and into the real world. In season two we will see Millie take her first steps on this journey.

Shakespeare Republic: #LoveTheBard (Season Two)

“… a sophisticated twenty-first century series with its own particularly Australian flavour.” – The Shakespeare Blog, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK Using some of Shakespeare's most famous monologues and sonnets, Season Two of Shakespeare Republic explores a day in the life of 13 of Shakespeare's characters who exist in the same world, living their lives in modern society, sometimes meeting, sometimes passing like ships in the night, all using Shakespeare's original text. "... incredibly clever and highly addictive ..." - Made In Melbourne Film Festival, Australia Season Two of the award-winning Australian web series, Shakespeare Republic has returned with more bite-sized Shakespeare with a difference - growing from 6 to 13 episodes this season. Created and Directed by Sally McLean, Produced by Sally McLean, Billy Smedley, Shane Savage and Perri Cummings and starring Michala Banas, Stephen Costan, Alan Fletcher, Nadine Garner, Dean Haglund, Christopher Kirby, Sally McLean, Tariro Mavondo, Wahibe Moussa, Falon Ryan, Shane Savage, Billy Smedley and Phoebe Anne Taylor, we're back bigger, better, Bard-er! "... a thoroughly fresh and modern take." - Kuriositas.com, UK Filmed entirely by cinematographer, Shaun Herbertson on a RED Epic, each episode is linked to other episodes in the series via visual motifs, cast or locations, to give us a sense of seeing fragments of "one day in the life" of a modern, contemporary world where we all happen to still speak in Shakespeare's language. The takeaway? Shakespeare speaks to us now just as strongly as he did 400 years ago when he first put quill to parchment. And for all our technology and expanded knowledge, we really haven't changed that much as human beings. Shakespeare Republic - all the world's a stage.

BRUCE THE SERIES

A gritty black comedy, set in an ordinary Aussie share-house that just happens to be a prison tent in Sydney Cove, 1788. Bruce Williamson is a modern man out of time, whose simple plan of following his soulmate Daisy to the new land by getting arrested backfires severely, trapping him in a violent prison camp at the edge of the world. Rather than the love of his life, who knows their relationship can never work out here, Bruce is stuck in a tent with irrepressible bogan Garry - who claims to be Bruce’s “best mate”, and, despite what Bruce might hope, probably is - and Mick, a well-read, philosophical, and sensitive monolith of a man, who is also possibly a brutal serial killer. The wider world is no friendlier, between the brutal marines, the incompetent leaders of the colony, and the mysterious local people who have had their way of life challenged. "Bruce" rewrites Australia’s convict beginnings with a wry, deadpan comic voice, by taking historical facts and rubbing them up against the modern sensibilities of this ensemble of funny, flawed, and ultimately endearing characters.

The Room Actors: Where Are They Now?

“The Room Actors: Where Are They Now (TRA:WATN)” is a mockumentary-style web series that takes a fictionalized, tongue-in-cheek look at what happened to the actors in the 2003 cult film, “The Room” after appearing in what The Guardian and Entertainment Weekly called “the Citizen Kane of bad movies.” Combining “talking heads” with docu-style footage, “TRA:WATN” follows seven out of nine of the original actors from “The Room,” as they comically struggle with either embracing or shaking “The Room’s” “worst movie ever made” stigma. A Room-obsessed documentarian, Javier Juan Julio (J.J.J.) Hernandez-Smith introduces the series and serves as the narrative glue connecting episodes. J.J.J. finds “The Room” star Juliette Danielle (Lisa) drunk at a dive bar in Hollywood. A recovering druggie and alcoholic, Juliette is now married to her former stalker; Philip (Denny) faces harassment from customers while working as a waiter at Denny’s; Kyle (Peter) uses his celebrity status to charm women at a suicide hotline and dodges various attempts on his life; Robyn (Michelle), divorced five times and juggling eight children, breaks into houses in order to keep her kids entertained; Dan (Chris-R) is a tough stay-at-home dad who channels Chris-R at kids' birthday parties; and Carolyn (Claudette) is a huge fan of Tommy Wiseau and defender of Claudette’s antiquated behavior in “The Room.” Obsessed with “The Room” actors, documentarian J.J.J. keeps the real "Room fan zero" Michael Rousselet locked in his basement and beats him with spoons to glean information.

Yukata Cowboy Season 3

Award-winning cross-cultural sketch comedy series about living in different countries and getting your identities mixed up. Created by Japanese-American film director Atsushi Ogata, inspired by fish-out-of-water mishaps from his own life. With a cowboy hat, Japanese “yukata” (casual summer garment) and rapid-fire tongue, Yukata Cowboy drifts across the U.S., Japan, and Europe. In each country, he tries to fit in, but the more he fits in, the more he is mistaken for someone else. In all this chaos, he struggles to find his own voice. In the series of 2-3 minute episodes, Atsushi plays all of the characters, as well as Yukata Cowboy. He portrays people’s lives in other countries, focusing on common, everyday details such as stairs, elevator or bicycles. These observations translate into something more universal, similar to Jerry Seinfeld’s stories about lost socks and dryers.
