Canadian Firms Team For Animated Series EXCLUSIVE : Toronto production company Hawkeye Pictures and Ottawa’s Big Jump Entertainment are developing Brian Francis’s novel Fruit as an animated series. The novel was the runner-up for CBC’s Canada Reads in 2009. Set in 1984, Fruit follows the awkward misadventures of fat-and-fabulous 13-year-old Peter Paddington as he navigates life as a total outsider. Bullied everywhere, Peter has only two allies – his opinionated nipples who begin an unwelcome mentorship to help him survive junior high. Screenwriter/director Pat Mills ( Guidance ) is attached to adapt the novel into series. “We are thrilled to be working with Karen, Rick and the whole team at Big Jump, and with the amazing Pat Mills to bring Brian Francis’s funny and beautiful novel to the screen. This feels like the right time to introduce a whole new generation to the wonderful world of Peter Paddington,” said Hawkeye producers Sonya Di Rienzo and Aeschylus Poulos. … [Read more...] about Canadian Firms Team For ‘Fruit’ Animated Series; Outpost VFX Hire In London; JoBlo YouTube Features Expansion — Global Briefs

New York R&B singer and producer Amber Mark made her debut in 2017 with 3:33AM , a movingly grief-stricken ode to her dead mother. It was a strikingly personal statement for a first release, and during the recording of her second EP, the bossa nova-influenced Conexão , she struggled to match its emotional heft. “I was just throwing songs away because they weren’t deep enough or good enough,” she said in an interview at the time. On her first full-length, Three Dimensions Deep, Mark searches for a way out of her slump, adopting a looser approach to songwriting that prioritizes mood and style as much as sentiment and emphasizes her versatility as a vocalist. She often sounds invigorated as the record breezes through multiple styles of R&B as well as afropop, house, and funk. Mark has credited a songwriting camp held by One Direction producer Julian Bunetta with helping her expand her palette. Playing songwriting games with Bunetta and other … [Read more...] about Amber Mark Gets Lost in the Stars on ‘Three Dimensions Deep’

A quick search for security cameras online will turn up thousands of results. There’s no shortage of good security cameras to be sure, and it’s an overwhelming selection to sift through. But, if you’re looking for one specifically without the need for WiFi, suddenly the pool gets much smaller and the choices become slimmer. Do You Need WiFi for a Security Camera? It’s safe to say that the majority of home security cameras were made with either WiFi or a wired connection in mind. And why not? Most people have WiFi at the least nowadays, not to mention entirely interconnected smart homes, so it seems like a no-brainer. But not everyone. Parents and elderly relatives might be the first situation that comes to mind, as they usually aren’t up on the latest and fastest internet connection (or any, at all) but still want the safety of a … [Read more...] about RS Recommends: No WiFi?

This week in rock history, the Doors enraged Ed Sullivan, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie left Fleetwood Mac , a stalker mailed Björk a bomb, the Strokes made their stage debut and Johnny Cash passed away. September 17, 1967: The Doors are banned from The Ed Sullivan Show for refusing to change their lyrics At the peak of their popularity, the Doors were not interested in compromise – no matter who was asking. Upon the release of their second album, Strange Days , the Los Angeles band was booked to perform on the Ed Sullivan Show . They were allotted two songs: “People Are Strange,” the dejected lead single from the record, and their previous hit, “Light My Fire.” Backstage, minutes before the show began taping, producers asked singer Jim Morrison to change the line “Girl we couldn’t get much higher,” claiming that the line suggested illegal drug use and wasn’t fit for the audience. Morrison refused irritably, but the rest of the group agreed to swap in less … [Read more...] about Week in Rock History: Fleetwood Mac Breaks Up, Johnny Cash Dies
Welfare fraud investigators have taken steps to seize Octomom 's bank records and other documents that may prove she's been stealing taxpayers' money ... and what they find could land her in prison. Welfare fraud officials obtained a search warrant to seize Octo's financial and employment records -- because they smell a rat. We broke the story ... the L.A. County Dept. of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation (WFP&I), has been investigating Nadya Suleman after getting a tip that she was collecting welfare in 2012 ... when she grossed more than $200,000. According to the warrant -- obtained by TMZ -- investigators have targeted 2 locations -- the home and office of Octo's manager, the person who presumably has financial records showing what's up. As we previously reported, Octo and her 14 kids are entitled to get welfare benefits if she earns less than $119,000 in a calendar year. But there's evidence she made a lot more and still grabbed public assistance … [Read more...] about Octomom — Authorities To Seize Financial Docs In Welfare Fraud Probe
Octomom got ANOTHER visit from the L.A. Dept. of Child and Family Services last week ... to investigate allegations she's a drug-addicted wreck, not fit to raise her brood ... TMZ has learned. Sources close to Nadya Suleman tell TMZ ... DCFS arrived at Octo's home Saturday night after a former nanny complained that Octo has been using drugs, drinking heavily, blacking out, forgetting key appointments (i.e. the bus incident ), leaving the kids unbathed for days and not changing their clothes for weeks. We're told DCFS made Octo aware of the allegations against her, searched the home and asked a mountain of questions regarding the situation. DCFS didn't feel there was enough evidence to pull the kids out of the home ASAP ... but we're told the investigation is still pending. It's not the first time Octo's faced off with DCFS -- in fact, the agency has been over a whole bunch of times ... most recently in April 2012 after her hairstylist complained of horrendous … [Read more...] about Octomom’s Ex-Nanny Calls Child Services … She’s On Drugs!

Sean Penn is getting a lot of attention for comments he made yesterday in the Independent while promoting his latest film, Flag Day . The project is Penn’s latest directorial effort, one in which he also stars with real-life daughter Dylan Penn. Based on the autobiographical Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life written by Jennifer Vogel, Flag Day is about the unique bond between a daughter and a messed-up but charismatic father, John Vogel, who spent years in prison for a bank robbery, was a grand schemer and dreamer, and who became the most notorious counterfeiter in U.S. history, single-handedly faking over $20 million. Deadline’s reviewer, Pete Hammond called Penn’s character “an underworld guy who feels he is always just one step away from the American Dream.” Penn told the Independent he feels the Vogel is reflective of a certain “white American male entitlement” that he sees in the country these days. “Or rather, I should say, … [Read more...] about Sean Penn, Discussing His Father-Daughter Film ‘Flag Day,’ Says: “Men Have, In My View, Become Quite Feminized”
