Capturing Film's Unseen Moments: An Interview with Kim Gottlieb-Walker

Kim Gottlieb-Walker has worked with many titans of film like John Carpenter, Steven Spielberg, and Clint Eastwood. Shooting not only for film and television, she is responsible for many of the iconic photos of Bob Marley that we have today. She also honorably represents the Cinematographer’s Guild on their National Executive Board. Kim was gracious enough to let me interview her about her decades of experience.

You've worked on several of John Carpenter's films. Can you tell us what that experience was like from film to film working with the same director?

Horror Headlines: Wednesday March 27th, 2013

Looks like both Tom Hardy and Jason Statham are being tossed around to play the lead in the upcoming Joel Silver remake of "Escape From New York". It's all just rumors now but either one of them would make a dreamy Snake Plisskin. It's like having to choose between Cheesecake and Pumpkin Pie. You're going to be happy either way and there's no way your ass is going to fit into those new jeans.

Some additional details and the first cast photo of the new "Zombieland" pilot has hit the tubes. It looks like the show, which hopes to run into full production on Amazon streaming service will pick up two weeks after the original film ended. The gang will be leaving Pacific Playland and heading out on a cross country road trip. I assume there will be zombies too. It would be stupid if there wasn't

Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, of "The Divide" fame, is set to make her directorial debut with a new flick titled "The Night Visitor". No real word on what the film's story will be but it looks to be a sci-fi/horror combo shot in the found footage style and shooting is set to begin on April 4th in LA. Just in time for Spring fashion season!

Soon to be Oscar nominated "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" has officially been slapped with a DVD release date and it's going to be June 11th. The film will be made available on all kinds of formats for your viewing pleasure and be chock full of features an unrated version and interviews. I know I'm pretty much come to terms with the fact that I'm going to be too excited to sleep for the next 2 months.

In Real People News: 

Kids are still walking around with their asses hanging out? I assumed that whole thing died a while back but this 18 year old in Illinois apparently stabbed his father after he demanded he pull up his pants. This is all that Bieber kid's fault isn't it.

I've always assumed it has got to be miserable for a parent to have to chaperone their child's school trip but I can't say I agree with this woman in Florida grabbing the bull by the horns by and getting tanked before her son's trip to a local museum. Wait no I'm wrong, it was a grandmother. This is perfectly acceptable. Old people can do anything they want.

Netflix Streaming Friday 3/24/11 - "Escape From New York"

It's the year 1997 and the United States is in trouble. World War III is raging and the United States is locked in an never-ending battle with the Soviet Union and China. Crime is on the rise and the nation's penal system is overwhelmed. In a desperate attempt to win the war on crime, the island of Manhattan is walled off and converted into a maximum security prison where the inmates run wild and no one can escape. The system seems to work well enough, until the unthinkable happens.
