Casting Everything

January 10, 2008

The story is based around an American Idol kind of TV talent show and the eventual winner of the contest: a young orphan woman, who works at an orphanage herself. As I learned from the werkfilm on the DVD, the story was specifically written for Oláh, who in real life was the runner-up of the very first such TV show in Hungary “Megasztár” (“MegaStar”) in 2004. She didn’t win there despite being many viewers’ favorite and having a terrific voice. It is kind of a consolation that she won in the movie, although reading the legal troubles about getting her fee must have made the victory sour.

Cash Cow

April 20, 2007

CASH COW takes Warhol's concept of 15 Minutes of Fame (surging from obscurity; becoming a media darling; over-indulging; losing everything) and plays it out in real time for one hapless wannabe pop star. It's a twisted comedy about the business of music and our culture of celebrity worship.
