Hello. Welcome to Seven Thoughts, and what has become one of the most widely read articles on film financing on the planet. Thank you for attending. I’m Lee Rudnicki, an entertainment lawyer and producer based in LA and Italy. If you would like to read my professional bio, here it is. I wrote this article in […]
Ciao, gatti. Ho scritto questo per tutte le persone che si trasferiscono a Los Angeles da tutto il mondo per “farcela” a Hollywood. Ai fini di questo articolo – “Hollywood” non significa solo l’industria cinematografica e televisiva statunitense, ma anche l’industria musicale, in quanto una percentuale significativa delle persone che si spostano a Los Angeles […]
The Roma season doesn’t start for a few days, but the English Premiere League kicked off over the weekend. I woke up at early in LA-LA land on Saturday and Sunday to watch Liverpool and Manchester United. It’s only game 1 of a long EPL season, but on Day 1, Manchester United looked like the […]
I don’t know what genius figured out how to get 1,800 drones to fly above the Olympics in perfect formation and form a globe, but it’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. WOW x 700.
July 23, 2021. Fox News has American blood on its hands for enabling the Trump Cult to politicize the deadly Covid pandemic. And Fox News is still doing it. SHAME.
I love the United States. But for a little while, it is great to be in a country (Italy) that does “not” have a large belligerent group of people actively fighting and campaigning against masks and vaccines in the name of their “freedom” and/or misguided Trumpian political beliefs. From a distance, they look even dumber.
LA 2016. Rumiko and I go to paint night. Enter some wine, 22 other people. A teacher. Lots of paint. Brushes. A pallet. More wine. Our assignment — to paint a beautiful sunset overlooking the ocean, a hill with a beautiful tree in the foreground. Monterery-esque, perhaps. Ready go. Everybody starts painting the tree. I’m […]
Me, SCV 1994. This photo represents the unlikely if not miraculous moment that I become the Percussion Director of the Santa Clara Vanguard … after “deciding” (and publicly announcing) to my friends and drum teacher that I was going to have this job someday, which I did in Montreal, DCI 1982, after seeing SCV live […]
It’s not my job to convince anyone to get vaccinated against Covid-19. But, if you are not vaccinated and/or still on the fence, I highly recommend that you educate yourself [quickly] about the Delta variant that is sweeping across the United States right now. Mitigation measures that worked before do not work against the Delta […]
I hereby predict with 100% certainty that the GOP election “audit” currently underway in Arizona by the Florida-based company Cyber Ninjas will “not” confirm the election results of 2020, in which Biden won Arizona and its 11 electoral college votes. Instead, the Cyber Ninjas will soon announce that Donald the Trump won Arizona – which […]
One job that looks amazingly interesting, but I will never have the opportunity to do, is homicide detective. I don’t watch a ton of TV, but I’ve been watching “The First 48” for a few years, off and on. If you haven’t see the show, it’s basically a camera following homicide detectives from the first […]
As my friends and family know, I am a proud American, but I have ‘zero’ interest in politics. I’ve never joined a political party, because some of my views fit both parties (or at least they did). Then came the Trump administration, the politization of Covid, the election fall of 2020, and last but not […]
