POP Video/POP Profile: Baby Trashes Bar in Las Palmas Is A Riot, Now Meet The Guy Who Made It.

Published

on

Everyone once in a while something comes along that is so brilliantly conceived that it makes you wonder why no one had thought of it before! In watching this video, ‘Baby Trashes Bar In Las Palmas” I suddenly realized that a baby, still refining it’s motor skills – looks a hell of a lot like a drunk adult. (But cuter.) It’s beautifully, (and hysterically) demonstrated in the trailer for the short movie “Las Palmas.”  Take a look at the video, and learn a little bit about the creator below!

So who’s the brainchild behind the video? Johannes Nyholm, an artist and film director based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The award winning filmmaker has made several music videos, animated shorts and films, but the inspiration for this one had a more personal backstory, as I learned from Nyholm himself:

Tell me how this all started! It all began as a documentary about my one year old daughter – something that later evolved into a more complex situation. (It’s now) part of a 14 minutes short film. It is the same story as in the trailer but a bit more developed.

How long did it take to shoot this scene?Really hard to say. It’s shot at several different occations, months passing inbetween. We never shot full days, just 1-2 hours a day, 1-2 days a week, and the scenes were not scripted the traditional way. So hard to say what shots from what days made into this trailer. But…roughly 5 days of shooting, which means 5 times 1,5 hours.

How difficult was it to get your daughter to cooperate? It was quite easy. We just let her do more or less what she normally does every day, i.e eat, drink, play, etc. I realized early during the shooting that I had to be very open minded, and not try to control the situation too much. So more or lesss the whole film left me “pleasantly surprised”. The little actress came up with much better ideas than I could ever imagine. 

You’ve worked with claymation and puppetry before – and the presence of marionettes in this film definitely adds a new sense of scale to your daughter’s presence… Where does your fascination with this come from? I guess I started with animation as a way to get more control over the process. As an animator you can control every frame of the film, making minute adjustments to small objects. That was fascinating. But nowadays I kind of goes the other way, I welcome irrationality and chaos. This film is a manifestation of that.

“Las Palmas” will be fully completed in May.

Former Law And Order Actress Representing Herself In Court? Diane Neal Claims Her Attorneys In Abuse Case Dropped Her, Leaving Her To Fend For Herself

Published

on

In an emotional, now deleted instagram post, actress Diane Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her – leaving the actress who once played assistant district attorney Casey Nowak to try her hand at being an attorney in real life.

Neal has been embroiled in a vicious legal battle that has spanned more than two years. It began when Neal filed a lawsuit alleging her ex, magician JB Benn, was a “manipulative and maniacal fraudster,” who had “defrauded her of millions” and “violently inflicted emotional distress,” according to The Daily Beast. She claims Benn subjected her to “a campaign of isolation, terror and (physical and sexual) assault, and destroyed her reputation.” She also claims he once cut her dogs throat. In turn, Benn has a lawsuit against Neal, claiming she owes him money for property they shared, and that she frequently threatened him. Part of his case: a damning recording in which the female voice, which he claims is Neal, threatens him and his dog. Listen to that tape HERE. It’s intense.

The truth is, the story is so full of battling accusations that it’s probably best to read the FULL list chronicled in this Oxygen article.

But today, in an emotional instagram post which she later deleted, (but copies have which have been retained and posted) a dramatic turn. Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her with no warning.

She speaks directly to her camera phone, saying, “So this is my version of hell. And there he is walking right past me right there” she says, referencing a man whose face cannot be seen. “So, I have been put in a situation by my own attorneys who decided to drop me as a client yesterday afternoon with absolutely no warning, wherein I have to represent myself in court. Because this is what happens to victims of abuse. My attorney yesterday accused me of having an inappropriate relation with (unintelligible**), which is not at all even remotely, a thousand times not true. Has done all kinds of things and … saying it was my fault for being abused. So wish me luck. It’s terrifying, but I am doing this for every woman who can’t do it for themselves. I stand for all of us.”

**please note that the words here were difficult to make out. We have our interpretations but don’t want to speculate without confirmation.

It’s unclear what the nature of the current court hearing is intended to cover today.
