‘Fast & Furious 7″ Gets New Date Of Release

Absolutely great news.

The Urban Daily

When actor Paul Walker tragically died in a car accident last month, fans were saddened about the loss and left wondering about the fate of “Fast & Furious 7.” Although it was first thought the movie would be scrapped altogether, Walker’s co-star Vin Diesel announced the film’s release had been pushed back on his Facebook page.


Diesel posted a photo of Paul Walker and himself on Facebook. Under the photo it read:

The last scene we filmed together…

There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we’ve come…

Fast and Furious 7 will be released…

April 10th 2015!

P.s. He’d want you to know first…

Beyoncé: the politics of being an “entertainer”

Do you create movies or shows to “entertain” or to be an “artist”?


TW: racism, sexism

1372788533_beyonce-knowles-concert-467Since Beyoncé Knowles-Carter’s surprise album release last week, she’s been the focus of a lot of conversations in my life. Judging by my Facebook feed, she’s been the focus of many others’ conversations, too. One interesting word choice keeps coming up again and again: entertainer. In the search for a concise way of describing her, we’ve collectively fallen on that one. The appeal is quite understandable, as one site attempts to summarize what she does by listing her as “an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actress, dancer and fashion designer”. “Entertainer” is a much simpler way of acknowledging her various talents and loads of hard work without obviously forgetting anything.

And so that’s the word we’ve increasingly chosen to stand alone for what Beyoncé does. From CNBC to L.A. Reid, talking about Beyoncé primarily — if not exclusively — as an “entertainer” has become the norm. To…

How do you feel about 3D Movies? Is it coming back? Is it over-rated? Which do you perfer? What is a must see 3D movie?

Films and Things

03Hailed as one of the best films of 2013, Gravity is a visual feast not to be missed in stunning 3D.
No, literally, don’t miss it in 3D…there’s no point watching Gravity anywhere but the big screen with a pair of 3D specs on your nose.

Dr Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a highly respected medical engineer, is sent on her first shuttle mission alongside veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) who is very much like a real-life Buzz Lightyear. The pair have to2 fight to get back to Earth as the soul survivors of the mission when an accident leaves them both adrift in space.

The visual beauty of Gravity and the incredible edge-of-your-seat tension throughout is unparalleled; it really is something of a break through in contemporary filmmaking. A combination of the fantastic performances from both Bullock and Clooney and the stunning visual effects renders

What is your story climax?

The story climax is the high point of your movie. It is where it all goes down. It’s when the hero finds its conflict. Now it’s either the conflict  or the character. Either the character victors over the conflict or fails and the conflict beats the character. 

The climax is usually place near the end of the movie. Everything that happens before sets up the climax. The audience will saying “what?” After the scene settles and we watch how things will end up.

What is your story climax?



What happens in a movie that forces the hero to act? Something has to happen to disturb his daily life routine. What can happen that will make the hero go out his way to change his/her ways? “This event called the inciting incident, and it normally occurs between ten and fifteen pages into your screenplay.”

Let’s say your hero is happy going to breakfast at IHOP every Saturday, or gets a disturbing phone call from his boss, or sees a girl he is attracted to. What does he have to do now to react to the action now?

Any of these events is definitely going to get your hero out of the daily routine. It has to make him react. He has to stop going to IHOP, maybe has to find a new job now or work harder at his goal. Maybe learn how to approach this new girl he sees.

We usually open movies with the hero daily life so the audience can learn about character. Then we drop the bomb and then the character has to change his routine. There has to be no way the character can go on doing his daily routine. What kind of life does your inciting incident interrupt? Your character profile can help you figure this out.

MicKira Productions soon on the rise.

What is your conflict? 

What is your story about? Do you have conflict? You should. Everyone loves drama. We often ask how do the reality shows last. Because they have conflict. You need a character that has some kind conflict with other characters in the story line.

Here is a nightmare for writers and producers. How do you stay ethical when you lose one of your main characters. So much in stake here economic and ethical choices. How do they decide what to do with Paul Walker? Do they try to fit the scenes in that he shot with a very memorable exit or do they just cut him out completely? Oh the decison Universal has to make. I am confidant they will make the best choice. Sad thing is they were depending  on this movie and have no other movie options to finish. Is this a lesson learned or something that film industry deal with it?
