Sofa Dogs: Back In Business!

May 5, 2009

Rising from the ashes like a Phoenix, or a Firefly into a glorious state of Serenity, the Sofa Dogs podcast will be returning to the internet by next week. I've purchased a refurbished computer from an ebay store, and it has shipped today. If all goes well, it should arrive within this week, just in time for the season finale of Dollhouse. :) After the Mothers Day holiday weekend, the podcast will begin to get back into a regular schedule. At the same time, I will be attempting to transfer essential files and programs from my previous hard drive, over to my "new" computer.

Thanks to everyone who have continued to keep the numbers strong during this extended period of down time. Big things are coming for the podcast and this site, so stay alert! :)

Hi ,

What does esteemed actor/writer/director Gary Oldman, cell phones, a Jewish Hip Hop group named Chutzpah, bikini clad women and a music video all have in common?

They are the focus of accomplished actress/writer and debut director Juliet Landau\\\'s funny, cutting-edge short subject documentary, \\\"TAKE FLIGHT\\\".

Technology icon Nokia, in the hands of talent icon, Gary Oldman (shamelessly drafted by aspiring icons Chutzpah to direct their music video) have collectively raised cell-cam art to soaring heights and given birth to a new trend in the process!

Gary directed the video shot entirely on cell phones and operated one of them as well. He asked Juliet to direct a behind the scenes \\\"making-of\\\" and her take on the ensuing madness bloomed into a documentary that is intoxicating! The cell phone footage affords a truly rare POV. “It’s like being inside his brain…seeing through his eyes,” says Landau, who reveals Oldman in a fascinating light: playful, funny, joyous, fluid, capturing his childlike exploration and an uncharted perspective on the world-renowned artist.

*JULIET LANDAU (TIM BURTON’S ED WOOD, JOSS WHEDON’S BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL) is a highly respected actress, writer, producer and burgeoning director. She is also a former professional ballerina.

*GARY OLDMAN (BOOK OF ELI, DARK KNIGHT, HARRY POTTER) has distinguished himself as an actor, writer, producer and director. His feature directorial and writing debut, Nil by Mouth won an Alexander Korda Award for Best British Film and a BAFTA (a British Academy Award) for Best Original Screenplay.

*Because the film centers around cutting-edge technology, highlights that filmmaking is accessible in a way it has never been before and is perfect for the new frontier of Internet content, Juliet has chosen to make the film available for streaming directly on the films’ website. The website:, which houses the trailer and interviews, has had over 600 thousand hits with nearly no promotion.

*CASSIE CARPENTER, BACKSTAGE WEST: Juliet Landau’s first directing project is innovative and feels surprisingly un-Hollywood. TAKE FLIGHT is a technologically groundbreaking yet intimate glimpse into Oldman\\\'s creative process. Not only does the audience get to see a goofier, looser, and even wistful side to the actor whose characters are usually borderline psychotic, but because Oldman shot his music video solely on cell phones, much of TAKE FLIGHT is from his own point of view.

*GARY OLDMAN: Juliet Landau is an exceptional talent! I entrusted Juliet to make a documentary film about me and I am thrilled with the results! TAKE FLIGHT is a special film that shows me in a very different light. I will work with Juliet again without hesitation.

WHAT: TAKE FLIGHT (A short funny doc about Gary and cutting-edge technology.)
WHEN: Launch date: 2/25/2010
