  1. QUOTE (LeaveMyThingAlone @ Jan 27 2012, 04:36 PM) Age 47 is ridiculously young for this to happen. Just awful... I wonder if this is the reason the band is moving the tour to September. If that's the case, he must have died a couple week ago, because that news was rumored back then..,? RIP Mr. McNaughtan...such a sad time for the Rush family He died on the 25th...I have some close friends who knew him and it was the night of the 25th.

It was a portrait of Geddy Lee from My Favorite Headache. Does anyone know how old he was??? The Toronto Star stated he was in his mid 40s. He was 47

  5. QUOTE (Godeater2112 @ Mar 14 2008, 10:00 AM) I know piles of people in animation - both tv series and feature films, but most of them are sculptors, animators, storyboard artists etcetera. Do you have any experience in film? The only contacts I have in Toronto are at Cuppa Coffee studio - of "That Darn Dragon" fame. They got a pile of production going on right now... but are somewhat renowned in the industry and you need a fairly stacked resume to get into most positions. Of course Cuppa are mostly specialists in animation / stop animation projects as well. My brother in Toronto is an intern or whatever in the film union... IATSE and gets occasional work through them. If you haven't already they might be a good source to contact and give them your credentials - the way they start you off there is calling you on demand for positions union folks cannot fill, and let you slowly build up your work experience and accumulate work hours to actually join the union. IATSE Web Site hmmmm well i'm currently going to Harris, for sound recording and engineering. I could maybe perhaps get into the film side for audio and then work my way in. Thanks for the advice! I forgot about IATSE!

    Silent Films!

    Chaplin was awesome! The Jazz Singer is another one.
  9. I can't believe there is no thread about silent films! and first of all silent films weren't really silent...because you always had a live band play for you and whatnot. Silent films made the audience think more, because without moronic dialog you had to figure out what was going on in each scene. You paid more attention to people's facial expressions and so on. Sound (other than music) ruined film imo. They put in so many add lines in films it's incredible...they are basically doing this because they think we are stupid. here's some history... First silent film was the "sneeze" ....shot by one of Thomas Edison's workers. You guessed it. Him sneezing in 5 seconds. The Arrival of the Mail Train- arrival of the mail train -When this film first came out...people had no idea how to handle the fact that the train looked like it was going to go through the screen. Many people during the film would actually RUN to the back of the room because they thought the train was coming right for them. This also happened at the end of the short film " The Great train Robbery" where the guy with the gun shoots "at" the audience. The mail train...was pretty much the first silent film My fav short film is "He who gets slapped" this was the first movie to show the roaring lion in the beginning of the movie! John Gillbert was in this film, and he's brilliant. You can watch the entire film here: http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=576...earch&plindex=0 Anyone else here a fan of silent films?
  10. Dave Betts (the drummer) kicks ass. Why? Because he's my teacher If anyone is in Ontario...check out Honeymoon Suite, styx, loverboy on New Years Eve in Niagara Falls. It's going to be a great show! Mullets are mandatory!
