The Film and Television Industry: Getting Your Foot in the Door

We all know that the film industry is a tough career to get started in. There is no set guide for one to follow in the industry. Whether you get lucky and meet the right person with connections, or your talent drives you in the right direction. There seems to be this overwhelming anxiety for individuals, like myself, that makes us wonder how and when we will get our foot in the door?

Music in film: How important is it? (And other soundtracks)

To understand the importance of music and sound in film, we must start from the beginning. The genesis of film took root with the help of a man named Edward Muybridge and his innovation in the field of photography. The first film created was just sixteen frames played in rapid succession.

The Oscar Noms are Coming

The Oscar Noms are Coming

Cue the music people, it’s our favorite time of year, and no, I’m not talking about the holidays, although I do hope all of you had an absolutely wonderful holiday season! I’m talking about, drumroll please, award season! Particularly the Oscars. Yes that’s right, the films that mean anything to anyone finally get their recognition and the actors who have been snubbed for years finally get their awards (shoutout my man Leo). And with the nominations coming out in just a week’s time, we here at Trove have been discussing who we think is going to win what, specifically the coveted award for “Best Picture”. Of course, the Oscars are in place to acknowledge so much more than “Best Film of the Year”, but c’mon, who can name every single category being recognized without looking it up? If so, I’ll give you all the money left in my bank account ($10.27 last time I checked! I’m doing great Mom and Dad, I promise!)
