Cal State Fullerton professor brings his Hollywood experiences to the classroom

Making a film these days doesn’t require a lot of industry connections and millions of dollars, David Morgasen is telling his class. He shows the students two videos he made in the mid-2000s with friends and very little money. One was “David Blaine’s Street Magic,” with Mitch Silpa as the comically intense magician getting revenge on two snarky guys, one of them Mikey Day, with magic tricks. The other, “Waldo Caught on Tape,” has two unsuspecting hikers finding Waldo in the woods and wishing the...

Agency Brief: The A-List blues

If it hadn't come two days later, we would have definitely suspected an April Fool's joke when the news hit that Accenture Interactive swallowed up Droga5. In a business where people (thankfully) do a lot of tongue wagging, this tripped off an avalanche of calls and emails proffering pundits to discuss just what this means for advertising. It is a tipping point for the ad world as we know it? Will it cause a ripple effect of other acquisitions? Are creatives dusting off their resumes? Is it one ...

There’s a working bar made out of 1,300 pounds of gingerbread dough and other holiday houses to visit

I like the concept of gingerbread houses – sure, let’s make a house of yummy gingerbread, icing and, I don’t know, gumdrops!? – but have you ever tried to eat one? Not a good idea unless you’ve got good dental insurance. By the time it’s been baked, decorated, displayed and admired, those panels of gingerbread are hard enough to tile your kitchen counters. So let’s stop at admiring. If Hansel and Gretel had been smart enough to just stop there, they might have avoided that witchy business altoge...

Ricky Jay R.I.P

Ricky Jay was one of my heroes. I first became aware of him in the pages of the remarkable “Cards as Weapons,” an oversized paperback that I bought at age 13 because it had a few pictures of topless women in it (you really can’t appreciate how much the Internet has changed the adolescent male experience). But “Cards as Weapons” additionally laid out a path: some straightforward guidance on technique (although unlike Jay, I gripped the cards along the short side, trading accuracy for spin) tale...

‘Magic For Humans’ Trailer: Magician Justin Willman Dazzles Crowds on Netflix

It’s been a while since a magic-based TV series has gotten my attention, but Justin Willman‘s new Netflix show Magic For Humans has done the trick. (Get it? “Done the trick?” I’ll see myself out.)

The Best, Worst, and Craziest Horror Movie You’ve Never Seen is Now Streaming

Before this week, I pushed no “MUST SEE” Demon Wind agenda. As of three days ago, I hadn’t even indulged this not-often-discussed cult discovery. That’s until essential horror streaming resource Shudder added Charles Philip Moore’s 1990 “How did this get made?” case study to their already blushing catalog. My interest was tickled with a confirmation tweet from the site’s official account, then fellow Twitter denizens started flooding their hyperbolic and dazed rants about a movie too tantalizin...

The studio's cameras filmed the trick too. You can see the full footage of Blaine's segment here. Don't miss the part where Questlove hilariously distances himself from the group.
