  • An interview with the stars of ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ | The Current
    have severe separation anxiety Brittain We really are close friends We know each other s moms and we go over to each other s houses for dinner It s a blessing to do a movie and to come out of it with really good friends who get you and whom you can trust The film takes place at a university in Texas What will college students find most relatable about it Hoechlin It s those days leading up to the start of class We wanted to capture what it s like for someone to go off to school I remember getting dropped off at college and my parents driving away and realizing that I was on my own that these were the first moments I could be who I want to be and do what I want to do and the consequences were my responsibility alone What was it like to film a movie set specifically in the 80s Hoechlin Growing up I would hear 80s songs on the radio but when you put the music with these characters when you re at the disco and you have that look and energy it brings a whole new feeling to it I had a new appreciation for it Jenner I got to realize what the fuss was about My parents jam out to music from that era so I got to embrace all of that Brittain Disco dancing was nice I am not a great dancer but disco allows you to be yourself No one can really look at it and say That s not how you do it Do you think that your characters fit your personalities well Hoechlin The one thing that McReynolds and I have in common is competitiveness I grew up playing baseball and I find it fun to compete Guzman There aren t too many things that I can say that I relate to about Roper He s very misogynistic and he s a partier But he does care for his boys He cares about the people he lives with even though he doesn t show it in a conventional way I kind of relate to that Jenner Jake and I definitely both have a thoughtful side I process things quite a bit and pick situations apart so that s how I m able to relate to him We both analyze life Brittain I don t relate to Billy too much because I feel like he s a jerk in some of the scenes But I do relate to coming to college and having that overwhelming sense of uncertainty with all the different things happening and all the different people you re meeting The film currently has a 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes so obviously critics love it But in your opinion what makes Everybody Wants Some a great movie Hoechlin I think it s refreshing to see a movie that s being labeled as a comedy be about the characters It s such a

  • Top of the leaderboard: The students behind ‘Artcade’ | The Current
    my fish sculpture with the paper and his style represents more so his culture and his political statements His art resonates with me in how I convey my messages What are your post grad plans I was really nervous about it at first but now I m just so much more confident about telling people only because the way I started out being in art is probably the same way I m going to end up approaching my post grad plans It s literally just going for it I don t have a plan A and a plan B I just have a whole bunch of plan B s There s my job at the museum right now there s an art residency path but it s all geared toward an overall vision that I am aiming for which is to open up my own studio school in the future Roger Atangana What made you interested in studying art It s very creative and out of the ordinary You get to explore things that people haven t done before Art can be anything That s what s amazing about it I love visual communication because I think it rules the world You turn left because there s a stoplight that tells you to wait and go left You re controlled by visuals and I just think it s pretty cool What s your favorite medium to work with I love my computer and Photoshop I always tell people that when I use Photoshop I feel like a god or a magician I can do anything pretty much There s nothing I can t do with Photoshop Where do you draw your inspiration from Artists who are better than me I think we learn from each other and it s OK to learn from others and to make your stuff yours and put your originality in it Which artist has influenced you the most There s this guy called Artgerm He has a YouTube channel and I watch his videos a lot I actually learn more from him than from my class because he uses Photoshop and I learn tricks from him way more than I learn in class and it always puts me ahead And there s a very old one he s dead Saul Bass He s a minimalistic artist He makes posters I love his work so much How would you describe your artistic style For me if you can use Photoshop why would you make something normal if you have the possibility to make something out of the ordinary I like surreal stuff like fantasy I would describe my work as out of the ordinary What are your post grad plans I m going to go into graphic designing because a couple friends who graduated last year are working in Miami Miami is a very good place for graphic designers so I m planning to work for any company for now Ultimately hopefully I m going to

  • Meet the musicians: Michael Reich and Patrick Watkins | The Current
    like too but We Belong Together is top three for sure Watkins When I have a show there s one song I always come back to I remade the track I like to remake tracks whenever I do covers so it s my style and more original but I remade Michael Buble s Feeling Good I just really like that song Do you play any instruments Reich I don t play any instruments unfortunately Watkins I play the keyboard and piano and that s how I make most of the tracks I also play guitar and actually recently wanted to pick up bass There s not really an instrument that I can t learn it just takes a lot of time to practice I ve been picking up the harmonica lately as well What s the most difficult aspect of being a rising songwriter or a producer and performer Reich Writer s block and it happens all the time I ll have a melody in my head and I ll have everything down that I want but I just can t get the lyrics out But when I do it usually comes out pretty good I think Sometimes it takes a few days or even a few months to overcome writer s block but I just keep pushing on and pushing on and eventually I get it done Watkins Being a performer and a producer is the hardest part about being a performer and a producer You judge yourself a little more harshly than another producer would if you were working with somebody I m a perfectionist In my last album it probably took three years for me to put together Just making sure I m not my own worst enemy and just making sure I m consistent are the hardest things Where do you draw inspiration from to come up with your lyrics Reich Pretty much everyday events other peoples lives I have songs sometimes that are more depressed sometimes they focus on relationships I use other peoples life events and just draw inspiration from that Is there anything you do before going on stage to ease any anxiety or tension Watkins For me it s important to warm up vocally and physically If I have a performance I definitely try to work out that day If I have a show I try to do between a 20 and 30 minute workout just to kind of get the blood flowing and get everything loose And then vocally I warm up going through ranges for 15 to 30 minutes Besides that I just like to prepare ahead of time There s nothing worse than being unprepared for something My goal is to be so prepared that if I get on stage and I get nervous I ll be so prepared that my instincts take over so I don t have to worry about anything and it just kind of happens Have any of the songs you ve written or produced

  • ‘The Witch’: Robert Eggers on his directorial debut | The Current
    came across that you didn t necessarily know before starting pre production and did that piece of information make it into the final film Well there s some shocking details of about witchery that did not make it into the film You know that mainly have to do with genitals and so that s why they didn t make it into the film But I think all the other kinds of particularly shocking things did That people if they called you a witch they really believed that you were a fairytale ogre that s capable of doing the things that the witch in my film does I mean that s the lifeblood of my film and that was the most interesting thing is really understanding the mindset of these 17th century English puritan Calvinists What to me is the most difficult for The Witch was the very specific and very realistic portrayal of religious fanaticism especially with that Calvinist background What created that for you Was it a specific upbringing or was it something that came out of your research Yes I mean you re just really reading the primary source material Reading people s diaries and reading people s journals There is a prayer manual by a man named Lewis Bayly who is in England but he was an English Puritan and it was a manual on how to pray It s very helpful And I did read lots of 20th and 21st century historians and theologians take on what this was about There is a book also called the Practice of Piety by a guy named Charles Hambrick Stowe which was also really really very helpful This guy I believe he s a pastor And so he was able to kind of take this Calvinist predestination and explain it in a way that seemed hopeful to me which was very helpful I m not trying to condemn these people for being Puritans It s tragic to see that they re making these kind of mistakes when they re trying to do the right thing You not only directed the film but you also wrote it Was that a difficult process for you to do both and to direct the actors at the same time Oh no I mean a writer director is not the craziest combination It took me long to write the scripts and that was difficult But it was fun and gratifying And certainly on set there were some scenes that I was wondering Why did I ever write that That s going to be a pain But no I went into this writing it and knowing that I wanted to direct it So it was helpful I think one of the biggest obstacles for a writer director when you re writing the script is to try to get your ideas on the page in a way that everyone understands because the subject matter can be so specific to you and you need to find a

  • Tiffany Engen gets her heels ready for ‘Kinky Boots’ | The Current
    How did you prepare for the role I actually got to see the tour when it kicked off in Las Vegas a little over a year ago which was amazing and exciting I heard a little less than year later that they were possibly auditioning for the play So I just started working on the material I had so much fun working on the scenes They re so fun to play I can t remember the last time I had more fun working on audition material I loved working on the material even in the room when I was auditioning no matter what the outcome I was just happy to be working on the material Do you share anything in common with your character Lauren I feel like there s a little bit of Lauren in everyone Especially that she s starting to have feelings for Charlie and trying to talk herself out of it because she s falling for the wrong kind of guy So I identify with the awkwardness when you realize you like someone But she s also so sassy and bold and I admire that and I wish I had more of that in my life She s very smart and very intuitive and just because she s not the boss doesn t mean she doesn t have the best idea in the room Are you facing any challenges playing this role If so how did you overcome them In the finale everyone is wearing kinky boots so different heels and on different platforms I feel like it takes getting used to dancing and acting in those heels My feet have to get used to them Why do you think people should see Kinky Boots I think it has a little something for everybody I think that that they won Tony Awards including best musical is a huge draw The score also draws people to buy tickets and the script and choreography is just top notch It s a story that has a lot of themes and messages It has a story about a father and son which is a really great relationship that we explore throughout the show And it also is a story about tolerance and acceptance and patience One of the last sentences in the play Don says You change the world when you change your mind And we re seeing that And we really are opening up people s minds about tolerance patience and acceptance and the joy that that brings What will people take from the play I think immediately the first thing that they ll think is that that was pure joy on stage The play was so much fun and entertaining You see people stand up on their feet before we even start the finale and that s just the best feeling in the world I feel people are getting that message of patience and acceptance And it s not preachy You re not hitting people over the head

  • Playing her dream role: Katie Travis on playing Christine Daaé | The Current
    about this role It was the first play I ever saw as a kid I was 4 years old and I saw it in Toronto It was the soundtrack of my childhood We d play it all the time in the car I fell in love with the story and the music Phantom for sure was a big one for me growing up Do you share anything in common with Christine It s about a young woman coping with death relationships figuring out where her career s going and I think I relate to all of those things It resonates with me a lot more because of who I am and my experiences in life I relate to the challenge and beauty of it all for sure How did you prepare for this role I worked with Sara Jean Ford who played Christine for many years I studied a lot and watched a lot of videos I just tried to make it my own I also worked with coaches for my voice I just really tried to make it work for me Was the musical element of the play hard for you It was one of the exciting elements for me because of my opera background It s a component of the show that I didn t realize required so much maintenance It s a lot of your voice you always have to be in tune I always drink water and always take vitamins It s similar to athletics it s very vocally demanding There s a major change in your social life We really give our lives to the show because of the vocal demands How do you overcome fear on stage I ve done hundreds of Phantom shows there are moments where I still get nervous every day The biggest thing I ve learned is you can t make fear go away but what you can do is channel it and move forward with it It s a cool thing that I have this job that s allowing me to learn that every day You just have to be forgiving of yourself and realize that you re human and that you re facing these fears doing something you love Why do you think people should see The Phantom of the Opera I think Phantom is great for people of all ages There s something for everyone romance the spectacle music fighting and beautiful costumes I think whatever you re drawn to in a show Phantom has it all It s such an iconic historic show I think everyone should see it if they can What do you think people will take way from this play I think our particular production is about real people trying to maneuver life s difficulties Christine is trying to figure out the death of her father figure out the type of person she wants to be romantically and deal with her career Those are real life issues that everyone relates to I think

  • Karena Washington: Bringing sax-y back to NSU | The Current
    marine biology to music I liked marine biology but it s a tougher field You have to be really devoted to it because if you don t get funded for your research projects you can t really do anything Music was always in the back of my mind and I thought about music education I really want to be a band director so I decided that music was a better fit for me because it was more of a secure job and I really like it Also the school that I really want to go to after NSU has a great music program and I want to be involved with the band there Why do you want to be a band director A lot of my best mentors were band directors and I really want to be like them I ve given lessons in other small group settings and people have always told me I would be a great teacher or great music director It really stuck with me Why is it important for NSU to have a pep band It gets more people to come to games It gets people spirited and into the games We re there to have fun and to help other people have fun President Hanbury has come up to us and told us that he has wanted a pep band for a while Also the arts programs are really small here and we re trying to get it to grow Having the pep band shows that we have a band here because a lot of people don t know that I m hoping that one day the pep band will get really large and that more music people will come to NSU Why is the pep band important to you Music has always been my number one passion so to get it started here on campus was a big deal for me because I get to watch other people enjoy music just as much as I do What songs get the crowd going Power by Kanye West The Hey Song and Kencraft 400 Power is my favorite song to play Have you guys ever messed up during a performance Yes A lot of times people are timid and don t want to start the song because they don t know if they re coming in at the right time So the drummer will start but not everyone will realize that we re actually starting so we re like Where are we One game we didn t have our band director there so we didn t know what we were doing and played at times we weren t supposed to But now that s all worked out What do you like most about being in the pep band I came from a place where I played mostly classical music so to be able to play music that s on the radio lets me groove with what I m playing more Also I get to help
