Video Interview ✰ "I, Frankenstein"

Not too often do I get to create an exclusive integrated video for a website (and not television). Especially when cooperating with a multi-million dollar budget blockbuster. Luckily, I got a chance to do it for with the help of the new action film "I, Frankenstein".

The core part of making the video was interviewing the cast of the film, headed by Aaron Eckhart and Yvonne Strahovski, at the swanky Ritz-Caralton hotel in NYC's Battery park.


I'm not sure that it's visible just how much fun I had during these interviews (especially since much of the more sassy footage was left on the cutting room floor). It was a blast. Honestly, it's pretty funny to try and discuss seriously a film that's based around the WTF idea of giving Mary Shelley's Frankenstein a makeover, turning him into.. a hunky superhero.

Yeah, some scenes are pretty impressive visually, but story-wise? it's.. well.. ridiculous. How bad? Let's just say that when I watched it, the crowd in the theater couldn't stop laughing, hardcore, Unfortunately always during scenes that were meant to be serious / smart. Awkward.

Eckhart, aka shirtless "Adam" (that's the film's new hip name for Victor Frankenstein's creation) tried discussing the "depth" of his character. Strahovski, aka a way-too-young scientist of... Something, attempted to analyze the "dramatic" relationship between her character and Frankie, ah.. Adam. They obviously failed. It was clear to EVERYONE in the room, including even the flowers on the table, that there are no depth, drama or even common sense behind this thing. And that's what made these interviews so funny. Nothing like attempting to explore issues like "Frankenstein as a sex symbol - Yay or Nay" while trying to keep a straight face :)

Interview ★ Julianne Moore

I think actress Julianne Moore is gorgeous. She is also very talented, most of the times (my personal favorite is her portrayal of Sarah Palin on "Game Change").

The reason I say "most of the times" is because that like every other human being, Moore has her off moments as well. Especially, when there's no good director around to stop her from crying hysterically and being too emotional (her signature style).

Well, apparently Moore doesn't like to joke about it. In fact, she almost tore my head off during an interview for "Pnai Plus" magazine when I asked her why she likes so much to play women in distress. Hmm, she didn't take it well and will therefore forever be remembered as one of the celebrities who almost killed me during an interview. There are more, of course. Love it.

Interview (*2) ✯ Amiram Eini

Male model Amiram Eini is such a big deal that one interview wasn't enough. He needed two.
Seriously, I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but the bottom line is that I got to interview Eini twice in a short period of time, once for Yedioth Aharonot and once for the competition, Ma'ariv.

Both interview are pretty similar and revolves around Eini's story of mega successful supermodel (check out his campaigns in the articles) and how towards the end of his 30's he decided to pick up a guitar and become a singer. Don't worry, though, he's still campaigning here and there, just enough to allow him long periods of time to work on his musical passion. After two interviews I can conclude - no one has an ideal life, but this dude has it pretty close.

Watching American Horror Story ✯ The 10 Most Dangerous Places In New York City

In these very moments I was supposed to be on the set of my favorite TV show, "American Horror Story", Which is currently shooting it's third season in New Orleans. 

The trip was canceled, I was depressed for a week, yada yada yada ended up stealing Lucy Liu's Mayo... long story. Anyway, I guess I will not get to do some witchcraft in New Orleans this season. Therefore, I have a suggestion where the next - and fourth - season should take place....
