John Yianni Stamas on Filmmaking Lessons

I was asked to write a brief piece for the new publication entitled “Artist Steps” regarding the filmmaking process for “Thrillumentary.” “Thrillumentary” is a web series we’ve been working on for the past year at Lights Camera Read. And although it has been successful as an educational tool, the worry is whether it will be successful as a piece of entertainment. Part of this fear comes out of the fact it is based on a one man show for theater, which means it is extremely dialogue based. Often works that are based on “mostly verbal” don’t do as well as those that are more visually oriented. If you are a member of the “NYC Make a Difference” newsletter from Entertainment Entrepreneurship, you are going to get to weigh in with your opinions through secret screenings of the series before it is released.

Platinum PIAs

Platinum Pias has a video finally. It’s taken them 2 1/2 weeks to create it. But it’s worth the wait because it gives a window into the “community feel” the Pias have. It only runs about 3 1/2 minutes and includes winners, presenters, audience members and “Thrillumentary” cast members. Check the Platinum Pias video out here.

Yianni Stamas on Billionaires and the Arts

Yianni Stamas of Movie Process is known as an advocate for artists. His latest project is talking to billionaires about their view of the arts! Recently he got in touch with the assistant of the sister of a billionaire to find out the billionaire’s view on the future of creativity. It seems that the point of view of relatives of billionaires is of interest lately – case in point Ivanka Trump. Does she share her father’s view on the arts? What is her father’s view on the arts?
