    Posted: 10 Oct 2011 04:21 AM PDT

    “Happy Hour” won Sunday’s Film Slam at The Enzian. This short film, written by: Kelsey Norris & Dan Drescher of Winter Park, will now show in December’s Brouhaha Film & Video Shocase with a shot at making it into the Oscar qualifying Florida Film Festival.

    Here’s the trailer.

    DESCRIPTION: There are twists and turns in everyone’s life and Ben Johnson’s is no exception. After the loss of his wife, Ben has found himself left with only one thing: A bar his family has owned for over fifty years. Using the bar as a place to escape from the world, Ben begins to repent over some of his long forgotten sins, but not alone.

    Steve Jobs bio-pic has a studio — Sony

    Posted: 10 Oct 2011 04:03 AM PDT

    Sony has snapped up the rights to the upcoming Walter Isaacson Steve-approved Steve Jobs biography. The studio hasn’t announced its plans, but could a “Social Network” styled bio-pic be in the cards?
    As I said when the speculation began about this, hours after Jobs’ death, the only thing to give one pause about the whole enterprise is the level of Jobs’ involvement/approval of the book’s portrait of him. A notorious control freak, he would have been pleased at the picture of him that emerged in a week of TV news hagiographies — endless replays of his Stanford commencement address, teary-eyed takes on the Apple logo with his head now in it.

    And the guy was a lot more complicated, interesting, flawed and filmmable than that.Of course, I speculate on this sight unseen. Maybe Isaacson’s book has enough warts and all detail to be a good starting point for a big screen bio-pic.

    I still think Jason Schwartzman ould be the guy to play him in a movie. But suggestions that Ryan Gosling should be on that list of possibles seem on the money, too.
