Got to see this on the big screen last night. If this is presumably the last time we see these four (Marty, Pacino, DeNiro and Pesci) go into this genre that they didn’t invent but essentially defined, they’ve left us on a very pleasing note. I have a vague memories as a kid of hearing […]
Been a little busy as you may have heard, so just now seeing this. I’ve heard every reaction, positive and negative to this film, and in a way, I think everyone is right. My thoughts: First, what I liked. Joaquin is definitely different (enough) to me than what everyone else has done. So that’s a […]
‘1 Out of 30’ Written by Malik Aziz Directed by Vishnu Vallabhaneni Produced by Lena Waithe and Rishi Rajani An AT&T Hello Lab Short Film Enjoy.

Episode 7 of the behind the scenes making of the AT&T shorts takes you to the set of ‘Postmarked’. Angela wrote a beautiful story and Malakai is a committed director and if you watch film and television at all you’ll probably recognize an actor or two who appear in this short. Enjoy!
New episode of the behind the scenes of the AT&T shorts. You know Lena, you know Ava, most of you don’t know Shooter yet… She’s a sweetheart, she’s genuine, and of course very talented. Episode 6…

Episode of the ‘making of’ webseries of the AT&T Hello Lab shorts focuses on Fragile.com. Alison and Brittany have created this dark horror story that speaks to the times we live in. Enjoy!
