    Mojave Is the Muse at Las Vegas Film Festival

    By Rachel Kerr

    The desert aesthetic isn’t for everyone; cacti aren’t always attractive and rocks are, well, rocks. But the Mojave Desert provides a beautiful backdrop for several films in the eighth annual Las Vegas Film Festival.

    With $4.1M Remaining for Tax Credit, What’s Next for the Film Office?

    By Jason Scavone

    If you’re looking to get a gig as one of the 6,500 workers slinging lithium at the new Tesla Gigafactory in Storey County, the state legislature’s September 11 vote to authorize about $1.3 billion in tax breaks to get Elon Musk’s Wonka Facotry-for-Batteries secure in its new home was a godsend. If you’re trying to get Paul Blart: Mall Cop 3 done on the cheap, though, the deal is somewhat more problematic.

    Riding the Sharknado With Ian Ziering

    By Jason Scavone

    By the time we finished watching all 90 minutes of SyFy original movie Sharknado Friday morning at his suite on the 36th floor of the Rio, Ian Ziering had already received two new script offers, a score of media requests and an offer to do Oprah. I told him this could be his John Travolta-in-Pulp Fiction moment. He says he’s going to tell anyone who sends him scripts from now on he’s waiting for Tarantino.

    Big Monster

    By Heidi Kyser

    David Schmoeller’s soft, circular speech halts, suspended in the sunny air of his paper-piled fourth-floor office in the Flora Dungan Humanities Building at UNLV. Like the narratives in his films, the associate professor’s recollection is more philosophically bound than detail-oriented. The facts kick back in overstuffed couches of imagination. The 64-year-old stops stroking his gray beard and continues the current digression, ending the suspense. Eventually there will be a point, but the story’s so good, it doesn’t matter when.

    Still Lost, Not a Boy

    By Jarret Keene

    His film and TV roles are so different—fright (Gremlins), comedy (National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon 1), reality (The Two Coreys), adventure (The Goonies), children’s (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), drama (Stand By Me)—that it often gets overlooked: Corey Feldman is a bona fide action-horror star.

    Watch on the Wild Side

    By Jaq Greenspon

    “CineVegas was great, but it never pushed the envelope far enough for my tastes,” filmmaker Chad Clinton Freeman says. “Now with it on hiatus there’s nothing much at all for fans of edgy cinema here in Vegas.”
