HOLLYWOOD MOVERS & SHAKERS

'IN THE LOOP' WITH JUDY COPPAGE, FOUNDER OF THE COPPAGE COMPANY
-- By Sandra Lord
 

JUDY COPPAGE

A few months ago, Judy Coppage and I hung out at my house and had a great time chatting about her experiences in the entertainment industry. In this candid interview, we see how this well-respected veteran's lack of ego, confidence in her ability, strong sense of loyalty, commitment and passion have no doubt served her well and have contributed to her success and longevity in a business where success, loyalty and solid friendships are fleeting at best. Her clients, many of whom with which she has no contract have been loyal…have stayed with her for years. A pioneer of sorts who virtually initiated the concept of ‘packaging’ and fought to bring the box-office blockbuster franchise, Die Hard to the big screen, she’s also a devoted wife, mother and ally. Judy has a joie de vivre that most would envy --and she's just getting started…  Read more

 MISS ST. LUCIA TAKES ON
'MISS UNIVERSE'
 

By Donny B. Lord
 

Sascha Andrew-Rose (c) MWO

A tantalizing goddess sauntered by me with a sultry stride. Entranced by her stunningly long legs, captivating smile and beautiful curly locks that framed a chiseled visage, I expected the stereotypical self absorbed and stand offish attitude of most beautiful women in Hollywood. Instead, I was presented with a shining and endearing disposition, complete with a warm greeting and a friendly welcoming hug.

Sascha Andrew-Rose, the eloquent 2006 Miss Universe pageant contestant, hails from the tropical island of St. Lucia in the West Indies

OPINION CORNER

Brain-Drain of Executive Talent in Recording Industry
By Tess Taylor
President of NARIP


In spite of staff cuts at every major label and many independent labels over the last year, we’re seeing a surprisingly strong job market. But we’re also seeing many of the same positions that were eliminated now being filled at lower salary grades. Staff cuts have made it increasingly difficult for mid- to senior level executives who have lost their jobs to find re-entry into the market at salaries commensurate to the ones they had.  Read more

Summertime Reading & Relaxing

"A vacation is like love - anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort, and remembered with nostalgia.“ Anonymous

It’s that time of year again - the vacation season. Hollywood - the entertainment industry - is notorious for virtually “shutting down“ during the summer vacation season of July and August. Most television shows go on hiatus; many film studios and major production house take their summer break; Malibu, Holmby Hills, Beverly Hills, and Bel Air become almost become ghost towns, with many of its famous “industry” residents heading for Hawaii, The Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, and Europe. Even if you have not quite reached the point in your Hollywood career where you can take a month or two off for vacation, you still need to take a break for relaxation and rejuvenation. A few days at the beach or in the mountains - even just a long weekend - can renew your body and spirit. One way of really relaxing is with a good book. So here are two interesting choices you should get onto your summer reading list before summer is over -- books that will help “recharge your batteries” and get you ready for the big push career wise this fall...Read More
