Orion Classics Picks Up Tribeca Drama “All These Small Moments”

So we will have the chance to see All These Small Moments in the future, it will be released in theaters on January 17, 2019.

Molly Ringwald, Brian d’Arcy James, Sam McCarthy and Harley Quinn Smith also star.

Interview with Alex Cameron, mentions working with Jem

Interview with Alex Cameron, mentions working with Jem

A new interview with Jemima’s boyfriend Alex Cameron, by Variance Magazine, were he mentions working with her and perhaps future collaborations, perhaps one more music video!

Alex Cameron is one of the acts not to be missed when Treasure Island Music Festival returns after a year’s hiatus to a new Bay Area location, on Oct. 12 and 13. Cameron is one of many Australian names on this non-cookie cutter festival bill, late in the season, that also boasts Lord Huron, A$AP Rocky and Jungle. Other established Aussies include Courtney Barnett, Tame Impala, Pond and Hiatus Kaiyote.

Cameron’s star, however, is fast ascending. His music has been singled out by Henry Rollins, shouted out by Russell Crowe and he was invited to Las Vegas by Brandon Flowers to work on The Killers’ last album.

Forced Witness, his stellar second album, picks up from where Jumping The Shark, his 2013 debut, left off—it’s a continued exploration of the male misfit, in his many unsavory guises. In earlier incarnations, hair slicked back, Cameron wore face make-up to age him and suits like a faded lounge singer, calling to mind Nick Cave. In Forced Witness there’s less artifice; he takes a more heartland stance, in blue jeans and white singlet.

Cameron puts under the microscope the ways these men interact with women; on the internet, in song and the quotidienne. Though he never condones their behavior, he paints intimate portraits of these outre men, warts and all. Like biblical parables, sometimes he offers hope and maybe redemption.

Each song offers a separate vignette and it’s only upon repeated listens that you hear the full extent of the toxic masculinity lurking beneath. “Runnin’ Outta Luck,” “Candy May” and “Studmuffin96” are incredibly catchy, couched in the sheen of ‘80s synth-powered melodies with a good measure of St. Elmo’s Fire-era saxophone solos from “business partner” Roy Molloy.

Sydney-born but now residing in Queens, New York, Cameron took a moment to speak to us from his current home about these misfits, his experience writing with Flowers and acting opposite girlfriend Jemima Kirke (Girls) in his music videos.

Jemima interviewed by Playboy

Jemima interviewed by Playboy

A new interesting interview by Playboy magazine was published on September 21st, in which Jemima talks about the risk of being typecast and the new series Maniac.

They also released one more photo from Maniac so that one can be found in the gallery and you can read full interview in the press archive!

If you happened to stroll by Jemima Kirke’s Brooklyn stoop sale in April, one of the items in particular might have caught your eye. Among the piles of vintage clothing and the other knickknacks one typically finds at these de-sheddings, was a stack of unopened copies of Girls DVDs, the show she starred on for six seasons. “People were actually buying them, and nobody realized I was the one selling them,” Kirke tells Playboy. Now, maybe she was just doing some spring-cleaning—because stars, they’re just like us—or maybe it was something more.

Throughout her half-decade run as Jessa Johansson—the deeply flawed but oddly likable millennial on HBO’s Emmy-winning coming-of-age series—the London-born, New York-based actress tried her best to extract herself from her polarizing on-screen persona. “I have had moments like Jessa, for sure,” she told Huffington Post in 2012. “I keep saying this—I just can’t stress this enough—this is an impression for me, in many ways. I know acting is not impersonating, but I’m good with impressions.”

That Kirke tried to make that distinction early on should come as no surprise. If Girls was a window into the no-strings-attached hookup culture of twentysomething New York City, then Jessa was its poster child. But when Kirke agreed to be in her friend Lena Dunham’s pilot in 2011, she was a married 24-year-old who had just given birth to her first daughter. Her days as a rebellious, hard-partying New York scenester—she first went to rehab when she was 19—were firmly behind her.
