Fan Creates Video To Prompt AFI To Give Lifetime Achievement Award To #JohnWilliams @AmericanFilm

afi

John Williams fan, John Wesley Downey has created a Youtube video to start a worthy campaign.  To get the AFI (American Film Institute) to give a Lifetime Achievement Award to our favourite composer.  As John points out in the video, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford have all won the award but John Williams hasn't.  It seems strange considering the huge contribution John Williams has brought to their work and others including us fans all around the world.

Let's "Like" in favor of John Williams receiving the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award.
John Williams is beyond legend. Numerous great scores, for big films and small, with a staggering range of music, from the jazzy score of Catch Me If You Can to the mournful Saving Private Ryan to the majestic music in Jurassic Park. John Williams is the man. So why have his collaborators received the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award but Mr. Williams hasn't? This video explores that question. Please like, comment and subscribe. And by al means use the SHARE option for Twitter, Facebook and wherever else you'd like people to see this. Spread the word.


Be sure to get the word out there and share the video.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
