Zoë Saldaña Climbed Into Lt. Uhura's Chair, Reluctantly : NPR

Zoë Saldaña Climbed Into Lt. Uhura's Chair, Reluctantly : NPR | mark007 | Scoop.it
The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' actress almost passed on the role — just like Nichelle Nichols, the woman who made it famous.
danielle's insight:

Way back in the 1960s, the original Lt. Uhura, Nichelle Nichols, was just as reluctant about reprising her role on the original Star Trek series after the first season. "I wanted to return to my first love, which is musical theater," Nichols said in the 2010 documentary "Trek Nation."

But a very influential Trekkie named Martin Luther King urged her to stay on the show. "He told me that Star Trek was one of the only shows that he and his wife Coretta would allow their little children to watch. And I thanked him and I told him I was leaving the show. All the smile came off his face. And he said, don't you understand for the first time, we're seen as we should be seen. You don't have a black role. You have an equal role."

She went back to work the next week and told Gene Roddenberry, the show's creator, that she was sticking around after all.

We guess MLK might be worth listening to, if you're into that sort of thing.

Some great advice ....

Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 16, 2013 2:25 PM

"[...]"I used the Mona Lisa metaphor to explain this problem when talking to one producer. It’s a fact that a big percentage of visitors of the Louvre go to the museum to see the famous Leonardo Da Vinci painting and only visit the corridors from the main entrance to the Mona Lisa room and back. But the Louvre has many other corridors and exhibition rooms that are not that popular: they are only seen by a small portion of the museum visitors.

My advice to that producer, at the time, was: focus on your Mona Lisa, the core story, characters and elements of your project, and the “corridors” that lead to that core element. Don’t try to set up the full Louvre with its dozens of rooms and corridors, especially if your resources are limited. Down the line, if you succeed with your initial approach, you will be able to add another room or another corridor. [....]"

AFTER TRAYVON: Black Boys Speak

"An inspiring and emotionally gripping public conversation amongst 9 Black and Latino boys ages 10-17. It was shot in Brooklyn, New York in early April 2012 at the famous House of the Lord Church just days before George Zimmerman was arrested for the fatal shooting. "After Trayvon" brings together these young boys to discuss Trayvon Martin, their own feelings of vulnerability and fear, education, leadership, violence in all forms, history as they understand it, and how they view America, their America. Kevin Powell serves as moderator for the conversation. Directed and produced by Cynical Smith."

Storytelling: Why, How and the Secrets needed to Weave Magic

Storytelling: Why, How and the Secrets needed to Weave Magic | mark007 | Scoop.it

"Storytelling is a folk art that has been passed down from generation to generation. At its best storytelling can hold a village enthralled and can spark goose bumps in the most sceptical of adults. For all that we have gained from modern media we have lost something in our collective ability to tell tales and entertain each other using only our voices and our imagination. Nowhere is this loss sadder than in our relationship to the children closest to us. Children learn so much from being told stories and they develop skills that they will use throughout their lifetime. The following is just a short list of the benefits of telling stories to children:"

How to build a story – The basics

 

1. Include the children themselves.2. Involve favourite teddies or pets.3. Locate the story in places the children know well (home, park school) or exotic locations they have heard of (jungle, under the ocean, polar regions etc).4. Re-work the children’s favourite books. This will use a known starting point that will engage your child immediately. Build on stories you have created before and expand them to new locations or introduce new characters.5. Use lots of ‘sound effects’ – creaking doors, thumping footsteps and boinging springs are favourites in our house.6. Use actions and gestures – knocking on doors, waving goodbye, clapping hands (bang!). This will keep your child active and interested.7. Don’t over complicate it: Most stories involve large amounts of repetition and often include three of something (3 children, 3 locations). For a basic template think of the fairy tales we tell children when they are little.8. Ask questions at key points to punctuate the story (e.g. ‘and how do you think he responded?’). Storytelling is an interactive medium – get your child involved.9. Use voices for characters and use volume within the story. It’s always fun to whisper parts to make the children crane forward to hear what will happen next. Shouting boisterous parts will also ensure you keep their attention.10. Use comedy: And remember what is likely to be considered funny for your audience. This is likely to be goo, pants, people falling over, adults looking silly and anything involving most bodily functions.
