+Alexandra Spector, +Jon Lawhead and I went on a hike last night in the Hollywood Hills. Nearly 750' of elevation in 3/4 mile. Steep enough to be quite dangerous at night, so definitely fun. The tree at the top was the only one to survive a 2007 wildfire that burned through 817 acres in and around Griffith Park. People left notes between the stones of a small village of cairns in the area around the tree. Somewhat invasively to their authors, we are sharing a selection of them with you. #Goldilocks

With a title like Tabloid Vivant, I knew going into my viewing that this was going to be a different kind of film than I'm used to seeing. It's, obviously,

The relationship between artists and critics can get ugly, but let’s be real: “Painter and art critic exchange heated emails” is a terrible set-up for a horror ...

This could open the door for a whole new generation of drive-thru movie scenes.

> How connected is the world? Playwrights [1], poets [2], and scientists [3] have proposed that everyone on the planet is connected to everyone else by six other people. In honor of Friends Day, we've crunched the Facebook friend graph and determined that the number is 3.57. Each person in the world (at least among the 1.59 billion people active on Facebook) is connected to every other person by an average of three and a half other people. The average distance we observe is 4.57, corresponding to 3.57 intermediaries or "degrees of separation." Within the US, people are connected to each other by an average of 3.46 degrees.

Our collective “degrees of separation” have shrunk over the past five years. In 2011, researchers at Cornell, the Università degli Studi di Milano, and Facebook computed the average across the 721 million people using the site then, and found that it was 3.74 [4,5]. Now, with twice as many people using the site, we've grown more interconnected, thus shortening the distance between any two people in the world.

// It was 3.74 just 5 years ago. http://arxiv.org/abs/1111.4503

We're literally watching the world grow smaller before our eyes. We can quantify it to two decimal places.
In honor of Friends Day, we've recalculated the classic 'Six degrees of separation' statistic for everyone who uses Facebook and determined that the number is actually 3.57. Each person in the world (at least among the 1.55 billion people active on Facebook) is connected to every other person by an average of three and a half steps.

Kyle Broom is the writer-director of festival fave Tabloid Vivant. A striking, stimulating, almost-experimental thriller about an artist seduced by the allure of fame. How does one become a director? Where did it begin for you? “The only way to become a director is to go out and make a film. Then make another. And...

"The rise of digital film led to a lengthy debate regarding the philosophical implications of reality in filmmaking. While some whole-heartedly embraced the new medium, many felt that traditional celluloid captures and reproduces an instance of physical reality that digital sensors are incapable of replacing. In fact, since the dawn of cinema, or even art, for that matter, humans have debated over the nature of what is real and what is representation. Kyle Broom’s surreal thriller Tabloid Vivant walks in between these notions, embracing both old and new ideals in an avant-garde extravaganza that dares to question the terrifying limits of art."
