GV Expo is November 29th to December 1st and is being held at the Walter E Washington Convention Center. The exhibit hall is open on the 30th and the 1st so you would only need to commit to those two days. Additionally – we only need to gather between 5 – 8 interviews per person over the two days. So there would be plenty of time to look around the Exhibit halls. We would provide all the recording equipment and passes to the Expo. I’m just looking for someone who could help with both days. Do you have anyone you might be able to help or can you ask at the User Group Meeting.

WHAT DRIVES ME AS A FILMMAKER:
My approach to filmmaking is to focus on a subject that moves me, and to find my way intuitively from there. Everything seems to happen naturally once I catch that spark. The first film I really connected to was Bicycle Thieves. So many moments in the film felt like complex life moments, not movie moments. This changed my conception of what cinema is capable of. I see film as a means of connecting us with our core and helping us live with ourselves and with each other.
Steven Spielberg went to town this week casting his upcoming Abraham Lincoln biopic, which already had Daniel Day-Lewis in place as Lincoln and Sally Field as his wife, Mary Todd.
Joining them in the film, based on Pulitzer-winning biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals, will be Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, John Hawkes, and a dozen other thesps.
Who else will log time inLincoln?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jones will play Republican congressman Thaddeus Stevens while Gordon-Levitt steps into the role of Abe ‘n’ Mary Todd’s eldest son, Robert.
Also joining the cast will be Hal Holbrook, James Spader, John Hawkes, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Joseph Cross, David Costabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong, and David Warshofsky.
From DreamWorks Studios:
Based on the best-selling book, Team of Rivals, by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, the screenplay has been written by the Pulitzer Prize winner, Tony Award winner, and Academy Award nominated writer Tony Kushner. It will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg.
The film will focus on the political collision of Lincoln and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War.
Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones will play Thaddeus Stevens, a Republican leader and powerful congressman from Pennsylvania in the U.S. House of Representatives. Stevens was a staunch supporter of abolishing slavery and was critical to writing the legislation that funded the American Civil War.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, known for his roles in “Inception,” “(500) Days of Summer,” and next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” will take on the role of Robert Todd Lincoln, eldest son of President Lincoln and the only one to live past his teenage years.
Hollywood directing icon Steven Spielberg will film his upcoming historical drama, “Lincoln,” in the Richmond and Petersburg area.
Gov. Bob McDonnell today announced that the film, based on the book “Team of Rivals” by Doris Kearns Goodwin, will begin filming in the fall. The movie is slated for release in 2012.
Academy Award-winning actors Daniel Day-Lewis will play Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field will play Mary Todd Lincoln.
The news is a score for McDonnell who has pumped up the state’s film incentive fund. The incentive package includes $1 million from the Governor’s Motion Picture Opportunity Fund, $2.5 million from the Virginia Motion Picture Tax Credit program and $1.1 million in in-kind contributions, according to McDonnell’s office.
The amount of funding awarded to a project is based on Virginia workers hired and the purchase of Virginia based goods and services, according to the governor’s office.
“We are honored that Steven Spielberg, an award-winning and visionary film maker, has chosen the commonwealth for this important film. It is especially notable coming during the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and emancipation,” McDonnell said. “Steven is an exceptional storyteller who brings historic themes to life on screen, resulting in such important and influential films as ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ ‘Schindler’s List,’ ‘Munich and the mini-series ‘Band of Brothers.’ I have no doubt that ‘Lincoln’ will quickly join the ranks of those famous works.”
Spielberg said, in the news release, that “Virginia’s rich historic legacy, coupled with the remarkable period architecture found in Richmond and Petersburg, make Central Virginia the ideal location for this production.”
