Open Screen Night @ Heritage House Saturday
Chattanooga, TN … ChattaMovies, a local independent moviemaker group, the City of Chattanooga's Department of Education Arts & Culture, and the Chattanooga Southeast Tennessee Film Commission will co-host an open screen night at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 7, 2012 at the Heritage House in East Brainerd.
About 2 hours of independently-produced short works submitted by movie makers from Chattanooga and the surrounding region will be screened at the event. Admission for the event is FREE. Three Open Screen Nights will be held throughout the year at Heritage House. Many genres will be represented in the mix of entries--from music videos and comedies, to documentaries and dramas. The works voted as Audience Favorites at the three Open Screen Nights in Chattanooga and Atlanta will be screened at year's end at the "Best of Open Screen Night 2012" event to be held at a major theatre in Chattanooga. The "Best of Open Screen Night 2011" was held at the Rave Theatre.
Jim Smith, EarLuminator producer and one of the event's organizers, says he thinks of Open Screen Night as an "open mic night" for indie movie makers. "We don't even jury the submissions. Everyone's film has a chance to be seen. There is no better way to support the
local indie artist than to watch their works being screened - We just screened the current submissions of excellent works in Atlanta, and now it's Chattanooga's turn to vote for their favorites."
Information on how to submit works to "Open Screen Nights" in 2012 can be found at: EarLuminator.com/openscreennight.

MAX CHARLES - "MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The boy who voices Sherman in the film "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" is just a regular kid. Ten-year-old Max Charles says he got a basketball hoop for Christmas, so he plays a lot of basketball. He also rides his bike and skateboards. Charles says he likes that Sherman sort of looks like him. He says the animators gave Sherman the same facial expressions he did when he was doing the voice.

WES ANDERSON USES ODD TECHNIQUES FOR NEW FILM
NEW YORK (AP) -- Film audiences who see "The Grand Budapest Hotel" directed by Wes Anderson might be struck at how old-fashioned some of his techniques are. Anderson mixes in miniatures and he filmed a chase scene with figurines. Anderson says he sees "a great deal of artificiality" in James Bond movies, and we accept that style of special effects as reality. Anderson says miniatures and animations are like magic tricks with a certain charm and he assumes that everyone knows his films are "a kind of a concoction."
NEW YORK (AP) -- The battle of the Persians versus the Greeks wins the battle of the box office. The film "300: Rise of an Empire" brought in $45.1 million in its opening weekend, putting it at number one. It's a sequel to the 2007 film "300." "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" made its debut in second with $32.5 million. Last week's number one, "Non-Stop," came in third with $15.4 million. "The Lego Movie" was fourth, "Son of God" was fifth and "The Monuments Men" was in sixth. Thanks to its best picture win at the Oscars, "12 Years A Slave" saw a resurgence, with $2.2 million in sales, even though it came out on DVD last week.
AP correspondent Margie Szaroleta reports the sequel to "300" outsold the movie remake of a 50's and '60s cartoon.

SCHOOL WILL STAGE MUSICAL VERSION OF "CARRIE"
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- A suburban Detroit school is standing by its decision to stage a musical version of the Stephen King book "Carrie." Parents have complained that it's an inappropriate choice for a spring musical for North Farmington High School in Farmington Hills, Michigan. One parent calls it "arrogant" and "insensitive" to put on a show that ends with a mass murder in a high school. Principal Joe Greene says the musical is a way of looking at the impact of bullying and mental illness.
