Katie Tallo directs and writes for film and television and these are her good things.
Good things to read.
Stephen King’s On Writing for budding novelists.
The Ballad of the Sad Cafe by Carson McCullers.
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath for novels that never lose their relevance or edge.
Good things to watch.
CineCoup is a totally new way to finance feature films here in Canada. These guys are shaking up the sometimes safe and less-than-daring Canadian film landscape by allowing filmmakers of all strips to pitch their films via fake trailers. One team wins a million bucks. It’s pretty outside-the-box thinking. Your readers can become fans and vote if they want to get engaged in the process. So let me suggest three of my favourite trailers for your “three good things to watch”. There’s Wolf Cop, Slay to Rest, and The Dangers of Online Dating – just three of my personal favourites among many others. Each trailer offers a unique glimpse into a film that hasn’t been made yet. Pretty cool.
Good things to use.
Something I use daily is Livestrong’s great app My Plate for easy food, exercise and water tracking.
Cinecoup’s fan platform to be a part of making a film come to life.
Your voice, speak up for what you believe in.
