SHELBY CARTER: BABE OF THE WEEK

Shelby Carter is the perfect combination of beauty and brains. Not only is she a model, but a photographer, wardrobe stylist, makeup artist, and she's certainly responsible for some accelerated heart rates. 

We recently had the pleasure of chatting with Shelby, and I think you'll agree, she's hotter than Texas in the summer:

You wear a lot of hats, as do most in the entertainment industry - what are you most passionate about, modeling or photography?

Well, modeling, of course. But I really just love creating beautiful images and inspiring those around me.




What is your definition of success?

I think everyone's definition of success is different. Mine is more of an internal success. I want to be famous, but I want to do it in my way. I want to be famous for my talent, and skill, and beauty - not by how many people I've screwed or screwed over. I will only be happy if I can do that. My dream gig would be to appear on the cover of French or Italian Vogue.

Who's your role model?

Marilyn Monroe, I love her!

Have you done any acting?

I haven't done any major acting gigs, just small theater performances. But I would love to act, and be and actress. I view modeling as a form of acting. 


Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

Network your butt off! Modeling is 20% shoots, and 80% networking. It's not easy. Don't sell yourself out. And if you aren't serious about being a model, don't do it.

Thanks Shelby!

BARBARELLA COMING TO TV

collider.com
Barbarella is coming to the small screen! The sexy 60's sci-fi siren, played by Jane Fonda, will be getting a reboot, from The Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, with Martha Delaurentiis producing!

Barbarella's influence has been felt far and wide across the genre, and notably the 80's pop group Duran Duran acquired their name from the eponymous evil Dr. Duran Duran.

No word yet on who will play the sexy counter-culture icon, though we can think of a few who'd fit the bill.

Who do you want to see play Barbarella?

THE REAL REASON WHY 3D GIVES YOU A HEADACHE

Chicago Sun-Times
The most common complaint we hear about 3D is that it gives the viewer a headache. As Walter Murch puts it, one of the most respected editors and sound designers in the film biz (think Apocalypse Now), "3D films require us to focus at one distance and converge at another."

What does that mean?

Well, when you watch at 3D movie, you are focusing on the screen, which is a set distance away - lets say 50 feet. But 3D movies attempt to create the illusion of depth, with some images appearing closer and some further away - even though they really aren't. And therein lies the problem.

Convergence is when our eyes naturally angle in to focus on a near object, or become parallel to focus on distant objects. In the real world... the focal point, and convergence point are the same. In a 3D movie, they are vastly different - and our brain and eyes have difficulty processing it.

According to Murch, and we tend to agree, it doesn't matter how advanced 3D technology becomes, it will alway cause this problem - 3D is battling 600 million years of evolution in vision. The only solution is truly holographic images that occupy real 3D space.

DO YOU LIKE 3D?

Hollywood is churning out 3D blockbusters a breakneck pace... that either means one of two things: It's a desperate attempt to revitalize a sagging industry with a higher priced format... Or, it's catching on.

Home audiences have largely shunned 3D... but the top grossing films of all time at the box office have been 3D. Filmmakers like James Cameron and Martin Scorsese argue for the format, saying it's a more immersive experience. But with poor transfers, required glasses and muddy artifacts around the edges of characters and object, other filmmakers argue that it's anything but immersive.

What are your thoughts... is it an annoying, headache inducing fad, or the future of filmmaking?

LINDSAY LOHAN KICKSTARTER

American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) have cast Lindsay Lohan alongside porn star James Deen in the erotic thriller The Canyons... which is funded on Kickstarter. Yes, even established filmmakers are crowd-funding.

They've raised $159,000 and met their funding goal in only 3 days. Looks like a VOD strategy is planned for release.

The team turned to crowd-funding to allow more creative freedom with the material, without studio censorship. The kickstarter campaign is to supplement existing funds.

It seems this hybrid method of crowd-funding and lower cost VOD is the wave of the future. Of course, when you are Bret Easton Ellis and Paul Schrader, you can attract talent and funds to your project a little easier.

WHATS THE FATE OF GREEN LANTERN?

At an estimated $325 million, Green Lantern topped the charts of box office bombs, losing nearly $105 million, derailing plans Warner had for the franchise. It's up in the air if, when and what Green Lantern 2 will be. There's talk of a complete reboot already, and no one is really sure if Ryan Reynolds is coming back. 2011 wasn't the best year at the box office for Reynolds either. 

What do you think? Should they bring Reynolds back, or scrap everything and reboot?
