Doc U: 2 for 2 - Stories from 'The Wrecking Crew' & 'Tig'

Landmark Theater

10850 W. Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, 90046

7:00pm

Join us for 2 for 2, the riveting new Doc U series, in which we go behind the scenes to explore the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of two documentary filmmakers who have managed to overcome the odds and ultimately prevail with their films. In our premiere event, moderated by Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil), we turn the spotlight on Denny Tedesco, producer/director of The Wrecking Crew and Ashley York, producer/director (along with Kristina Goolsby) of Tig.
Though The Wrecking Crew saw success with its festival run in 2008, the astronomical cost of licensing the music kept the film from receiving any kind of distribution deal. Seven years and a $300,000 Kickstarter campaign later, find out how director/producer Denny Tedesco, producer Suzie Greene Tedesco, and producer/editor Claire Scanlon were able to play by the rules and pay off the rights enabling the film to receive a successful distribution run.
As an independent documentary filmmaker, you are present, camera in hand, for many of your film subject's most private moments. But, how do you best negotiate those moments so that you can do service both to the film you are making and to the person whose life is unfolding onscreen? And, to further complicate things, what if your film subject is a rising celebrity, overnight media sensation, and longtime friend of your co-director? Filmmaker Ashley York, who co-directed Tig with Kristina Goolsby, writer Jennifer Arnold, and producer Michael Clark talk about the unique challenges of collaborating with an up-and-coming star, while making a film that is truthful, honest, fair... and funny.
2 for 2 presents two moderated 45-minute case studies back-to-back focused on two new documentaries through interviews with the filmmaker and key crew, clips, and time for audience Q&A.
Afterward, share your own success stories at our wine and beer reception at the Landmark’s Wine Bar.

Ashlee Vance, in conversation with Joel Stein

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd, Austin, CA 90069

7:00pm

WEHO Reads presents Ashlee Vance, in conversation with Joel Stein, discussing and signing Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future. Elon Musk is the most daring entrepreneur of our time.  There are few industrialists in history who could match Elon Musk's relentless drive and ingenious vision. A modern alloy of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs, Musk is the man behind PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX, and SolarCity, each of which has sent shock waves throughout American business and industry. More than any other executive today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as a science fiction fantasy.  In this lively, investigative account, veteran technology journalist Ashlee Vance offers an unprecedented look into the remarkable life and times of Silicon Valley's most audacious businessman. Written with exclusive access to Musk, his family, and his friends, the book traces his journey from his difficult upbringing in South Africa to his ascent to the pinnacle of the global business world. Vance spent more than fifty hours in conversation with Musk and interviewed close to three hundred people to tell the tumultuous stories of Musk's world-changing companies and to paint a portrait of a complex man who has renewed American industry and sparked new levels of innovation--all while making plenty of enemies along the way.
