Body of Proof not to return to RI


ABC announced that the show was renewed for a second season a few days ago, but on Friday actress Jeri Ryan Tweeted that it would be shot in LA. Steven Feinberg, executive director of the RI Film and Television Office, confirmed this news today. 


The first season, comprised of nine episodes, finishes tomorrow night. It was filmed entirely in Rhode Island, with the sound stage and production offices in Warwick and other scenes shot at various locations around Providence, including the iconic GTECH building.  

The filming of the show was financially advantageous to the state, as in addition to the money made from the filming rights, it created hundreds of new jobs and extra roles for Rhode Islanders.


Lead actress Dana Delaney and others involved in the show seemed to enjoy working in RI, but clearly other factors have played into the decision to move the show to California. Most of the actors live primarily in California, and reportedly "family obligations" of the show's executive producer Matthew Gross influenced the move as well. 

The Autism Project seeks videographer


The Autism Project is seeking a filmmaker/videographer who would be willing to donate their time and talent to record the fashion show and have copies available for any of the models or designers who may want one. They can pay a small fee to cover the cost of the CD/DVD and postage.
The event starts at 6 pm. The fashion show segment starts after dinner around 7:30-7:45 and runs about 45 minutes. They aim to have the event complete no later than 9 pm. 

There is also an after-party on Federal Hill which many attend. As long as s/he is over the age of 21, the volunteer is more than welcome to join, network, pass out cards, etc. Credit will aslo be given in the program book.

A request that the person behave and dress professionally (no tshirts/jeans/sneakers/baseball caps), be punctual, and prompt with communications... A beginner or film student is fine or need for community service hours.

Anyone who is interested is welcome to contact me directly at olgabeauti@cox.net or call me at 401-353-4656

Get the call back, book the job - or just learn to work the camera like a pro. Practice and insightful coaching are the keys to improving your ability to work with the camera, and your comfort with it.

Carolyn Pickman brings actual audition material from television commercials, corporate videos, and film scripts. Participants will be videotaped in a mock audition setting at each class. Students will review the videos and learn to prepare, and adjust their performances for the camera, take direction, and learn tricks of the trade - both in auditioning successfully, and in effectively conveying character and presence through the lens of the camera.

Carolyn walks you through auditioning step-by-step, pointing out the pitfalls to avoid and giving an insider's view on what industry pros look for. Students are welcome to repeat this course - different material is always added.

To register go to: www.rifcfilms.com

This course addresses the question, "How do I give an exceptional audition?"
