An Interview with Toria Brightside - Photographer

Written by

1toria

I had the chance to talk to the lovely Toria Brightside. At such a young age she has achieved so much, running fashion shows for charity, being featured in fashion magazines as big as Vogue, all while studying Photography in Leeds. There is yet so much more to come from this bright young thing.

‘Across The Pond’ England, 2009

All the movies released over the past year, and even some not yet to be released, are vying for our attention, good reviews and possible consideration for various award ceremonies.

I adore this time of year! Yes, somewhere chestnuts are roasting on an open fire but here it’s my favorite time of year because there are sparkly lights everywhere, my birthday is imminent, and there are an abundance of reasons to go shopping! What’s not to love?

Paul Becker is best known as a protégé to the genius Kenny Ortega but he has evolved far beyond his dance roots to become one of the world’s busiest and best choreographer/directors; frequently appearing as a Judge on hit television shows like So You Think You Can Dance (CAN).

Our second episode about episodic’s!

What stunning thematic dialogue we are having!

October 13, 2013 at The Broad Stage, Lillian Barbeito, co-artistic director of the successful LA-based contemporary dance company BODYTRAFFIC, had her final on-stage performance. 
Gratefully, she was able to make this decision on her own accord, and with optimism and grace, after a 22-year long performing career.

bullshit

I admit it. I want people to like me. I especially want my clients to like me, I want their clients to like me and I want all the people I encounter in my work life to think I am the best, nicest, coolest producer that they ever get to work with! Not too much to ask is it?

Attending the Dance Community Event: Conversations Inside and Outside the Box: Expanding the Presence of Dance in LA

la-county-arts-commisio-and-penticle

 

The half-day gathering titled “Conversations Inside and Outside the Box: Expanding the Presence of Dance in LA” was held as a dance community forum on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the Wilshire Boulevard headquarters of the LA County Arts Commission (LACAC). This call together is a continuation of public meetings that began with the LA Dance Summit in June at the JACCC and the annual Western Arts Alliance conference held here in late August. I had to be there to share it with you.


The Web series

Choosing to make a web series is a very big subject and as such I have decided to write about it over the span of two articles, so you don’t get bored, and I don’t get lost...

The 3rd annual World Dance Awards for choreography will be held at the Belasco Theatre on Sunday, October 13 at 7pm. NoHoArtsDistrict.com is a proud co-sponsor of the event. I was delighted to have been able to speak with Allen Walls and Carey Ysais, the co-producers and co-founders of the WDA, in this special interview. Both men have extensive resumes from their many years of working on stage and screen. Below we learn about their recent projects, the makings of the World Dance Awards, and their mission to serve and preserve the dance community. This comical exchange happened under the trees at Priscilla’s Coffee in Toluca Lake, nodding once more to the amazing city we live in and the wonderful people who live in it.

shoot

I got to shoot Robert Redford last week…it didn’t hurt I promise! We used an Epic camera not any firearms, though from observing his rugged good looks and going over the list of movies the man has starred in, he is probably comfortable with a magnum strapped to his side. But I digress.


Aaron and Kate Sept 2013

Well, you’ve seen him on this season of So You Think You Can Dance, rise to the top 4 – the first tapper to get this far in the competition to date! Aaron Turner is as warm and charming in person as he is on stage. I’ve had the pleasure of having Aaron as a body work client this season, and he so graciously accepted to share his experiences with us in this interview.

Art - Follow The Money: Treasure Hunt For Grants

Written by

“A bank is a place that will lend you money only if you can prove that you don’t need it. ” Bob Hope

There has been a lot of talk lately about the economy improving. I don’t know about you, but not many people I come in contact with have experienced much change. Nonetheless, change is happening, maybe not as fast as everyone would like, but there is hope on the horizon. One of the more subtle indicators, is to look at the availability of grant money. Last year, it was slim pickings. I don’t think I could come up with a dozen funding sources for artists. This year, thankfully, there is an abundance. Read on for literally hundreds of new grant opportunities and funding sources. Wake me when it’s over…

It takes a village to make a film, and, as the filmmaker, it’s up to you to find your village.

In my work as a nonprofit leader, I have attended many different neighborhood council meetings throughout the Valley and have found that a third of them function really well, a third do a fair job, and a third hardly function at all.

I’ve never seen myself as an artist who paints one fabulous painting at a time to fill gallery walls, satisfy a waiting list of eager buyers, and someday make it into a modern-art museum. My work isn’t so highbrow, I say to myself; because I do a lot of drawing and less painting, and choose horror mixed with humor as my favorite subject, I fall somewhere in between the gallery painting and the greeting card.

Dance Community Support.jpg - 67.18 KB
I’m inspired to call out to our community to encourage and insist that we get more involved in the organizations that are out there to support the few, the mighty, the dancers! As a young dancer, I wish I had known more about the resources out there that are advocating for every aspect of our field. As a body worker for performing artists, I am so thankful for these fellow practitioners and their research and clinical studies. As a dance advocate, I am amazed at how dedicated teachers can be to their students in spreading the love and art of dance. This bug of inspiration bit me at a local conference I attended two weeks ago.
