‘Ghana is tough but we are ready’: Egypt coach Bradley

first_imgEgyptian national team manager Bob Bradley expresses confidence after the Pharaohs were drawn with Ghana in the African qualifiers playoff to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.“Matches against Ghana will be very tough as the team consists of several players from the biggest European leagues,” American Bradley told reporters Monday after the draw in the CAF headquarters in Cairo.“There is no need to worry as we could have been paired with any of the five teams and they are all powerful,” he added.“We are ready for the matches and I am personally hoping that we can play the second leg in front of our fans,” the 56 year-old tactician said.The first leg of the playoff matches will be between 11 and 15 October in Ghana, with the second leg between 15 and 19 November in Egypt.With domestic competitions frozen due to security concerns, almost all recent continental matches have been held behind closed doors in Hurghada, 430km away from Cairo. “The attendance of fans would really boost the team in the anticipated crucial clash,” the former United States coach concluded.The winners of seven successive African Cup of Nations have achieved full points in the qualifiers groups stage, topping Group G with 18 points.Egypt’s last game against Ghana was a friendly in January 2013, when the Pharaohs lost 3-0 ahead of the African Cup of Nations (CAN), which they failed to qualify for.The previous meeting of the two teams was crucial as Egypt, under the country’s most successful coach, Hassan Shehata, defeated Ghana 1-0 in the final of the CAN 2010 to claim their seventh trophy.The Egyptian team is hoping for their first ticket since 1990 to the world’s most prestigious tournament.

$10K vs. $100K vs. $500K: Feature Film Budgets Compared

first_imgThat’s the breakdown for these different feature film budgets. I hope you’ll be making one in the very near future.Cover image via Janelle Lugge.Looking for more on the film and video industry? Check out these articles.The History and Power of Sound Design in the Film IndustryFilmmaking Fads and Trends: Don’t Let Them Bother YouThese Tribeca Docs Will Renew Your Faith In The Power of The CameraThe Cameras and Lenses Behind the Marvel Cinematic UniverseBreakout Director Kat Candler on the Best Festivals for First-Time Filmmakers Making a Film on a $10,000 BudgetSo let’s start with $10K. I’m going to say $10K, but it’s really anywhere between $10-$25K. This is as much as most people have in savings or could put on a credit card (I don’t recommend the latter).It’s probably not going to be a SAG (Screen Actors Guild) project, so your actors will be non-union. Your film is certainly not going to be union for other departments, including cinematography, electrical, sound, grip, catering, etc. — these will all be way over your budget.You’re probably not going to pay anyone very much money, maybe around $50 a day. You’re going to shoot in under two weeks, and most of your money is going toward one main location and feeding everyone.You’ll have to choose a script that’s very contained (that only takes place in a couple of locations), and you’re going to have to know a lot of other filmmakers.At $10K, you won’t be able to afford to pay $700-1,500 a day for a professional sound person.You’re going to be working on your own script, or a script that someone has given to you (because you can’t afford to buy one).You’re going to be getting locations of friends, family, yourself, or shooting outside in a park or on the street, if your city allows you to shoot publicly without a permit.Generally, you’re going to have to cut every corner you can and only use your budget to bail you out of an emergency.So the money will go toward whatever your network can’t supply.Hiring a camera or lenses (but probably not both).Lights and grip (some you’ll probably borrow or get for free — either the DP or gaffer will have them).Post-production. If you’re not a colorist or sound editor or mixer or musician, you’re going to have to pay one of those people (but hopefully not all).You can make a movie for zero dollars; it just means that you’re going to be asking for favors from everyone, all the time, which can take longer than if you just worked to save up the money and paid for whatever you couldn’t get as a favor.The budget of a $10K movie isn’t that complicated because (basically) you set out to get everything for free, and then when something falls through, or when you just can’t find it no matter how hard you look, you have to dip into your limited resources.A lot of people do this every year. Some of them break out and find wider acceptance. It’s basically a film school. You get to spend a month preparing, a week shooting, and then 3-6 months in post. After that, you try to find an audience for your film.It’s a great training ground for filmmakers of all kinds.Making a Film on a $100,000 BudgetImage via 9387388673.At $100K, you have some money, but you don’t have enough money to pay full price for everything.You’re probably going to move up to SAG actors because you want a couple of recognizable faces (or names) in your film. These are people at the end or beginning of their careers — actors transitioning from TV or Broadway into movies.At this budget level, you’re going to pay everyone something.You’re going to shoot for 18 days or three weeks, taking Sunday off.You’re going to be able to hire camera, lenses, and a grip, but not at full rate.You’re going to have to find people who believe in the vision of the film in order to make it.You’re still going to be directing the movie yourself because you still can’t pay the $100K it costs to get someone from the DGA (Director’s Guild of America).Hopefully, you’ve made a $10K movie already, and you know the process. You’re aware of your blind spots from the first film, so you’re going into the second film with your eyes more open.You can probably afford a professional colorist, professional sound mix, and professional musicians — all at a reduced price. You can afford to pay $2K for a mix, not $20K, and generally you still need to beg, borrow, and steal everything. By the time you write the script, cast it, find all the locations, shoot it, post-produce it, and find a buyer for the film, a year will have gone by. $100K is real money. People expect a return. You need to sell that movie and get that money back, which can take a lot of time. That’s time that you’re not working at a regular job.$100k will allow you to give yourself a small wage, but you’re probably still going to need to work part-time in order to avoid dipping into the budget to support yourself while you make the film.Making a Film on a $500,000 BudgetImage via 9387388673.This really could be anywhere from $500K to $1 million. This is the first time you’re paying union rates for your sound mixers, transportation, union members, AC (Assistant Camera), post, etc. You simply find the people you want to work with and ask them what their rate is. You’re not going to pay them their TV commercial rate of $8K a day; you’ll pay their feature rate of maybe $800 dollars a day.You’re going to pay for a casting director who will handle all the SAG elements for you.You’ll probably give yourself a wage of about $50K, depending on your living expenses, and you’re probably going to have a producer (as well) at the same price, which needs to cover your costs so you can work on your film and sell it. Remember, it takes 18 months to get a feature film from inception to sale.Having said that, there is very little money in a $500K budget for any of the things that you see in major Hollywood movies.There’s very little money for visual effects.You can’t fix things in post.You’re probably going to get one “name actor” at Schedule F, which is $60-$70K. Everyone else is going to be a bit player or a favor.You’re certainly not going to get Brad Pitt or Charlize Theron. You’re just going to try and find a rising star who really wants to be in your film.You’re still going to have to work with the new, hungry post-production houses. You’re not going to walk into Industrial Light & Magic and say, “I want a CGI character.”You’re going to really have to keep it very bare bones, but at $500K-$1 million, you’re going to at least be able to pay for most of what you need.center_img These budget breakdowns demonstrate the wild difference money makes when shooting a feature film. Here’s what you can expect.$10K, $100K, and $500K — they all sound like a lot of money. And they are. But they are also not as much as you might think when it comes to producing a feature film — especially a feature that will be compared to projects with budgets of millions (or hundreds of millions) of dollars.Here’s what you can expect from these three sample budgets.last_img read more

Pawar to Rahul: premature to talk about prime ministership

first_imgPune: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday urged Congress president Rahul Gandhi to avoid making premature remarks about the prime ministership before the parliamentary polls. “There is a proverb in Marathi: bajaarat toori ani bhat bhatnila maari (the lentil pod is still in the market and the priest is beating up his wife). This means there is an argument about something that does not merit any discussion. So, let the ‘tur’ come first and then discuss,” Mr. Pawar said in Satara. “It is too early to talk or indulge in wishful thinking about future calculations. Let us first contest the elections and win a sizeable number of seats in order to be able to form a government,” Mr. Pawar said.At the same time, the NCP leader acknowledged that only the Congress, among all opposition parties, has a traditional presence in all states as opposed to the Trinamool Congress, Samajwadi Party, or the Telangana Rashtra Samiti. Mr. Gandhi on Tuesday had said he is ready for the PM’s job if the Congress wins the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.last_img read more

Dravid backs Tendulkar suggestion on new ODI format

first_imgIt might have been rejected by the ICC but Sachin Tendulkar’s suggestion to revamp the ODIs by splitting the format into four innings of 25 overs each has got the backing of his Test teammate Rahul Dravid.”It is interesting (suggestion). I don’t know why the ICC has rejected it (Tendulkar’s suggestion via a letter to ICC), but it’s a good idea that Sachin has given and is worth experimenting,” said India’s batting mainstay on the England tour on the sidelines of a promotional event for ‘Gillette’ here last night.”It has been tried out in Australia (in domestic cricket) and the plus and minus points should be looked into,” he added.Tendulkar had written a letter to the ICC to change the format of the ODIs from two innings of 50 overs to four of 25 overs like a Test match but the world council’s Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat had rejected it.”There is no need to change the format,” Lorgat told reporters in Colombo on Wednesday.”We did receive a written proposal from Sachin, but that was a long time back. I myself have spoken to him many times about it, the last one as recent as during the World Cup in April.The success of the tournament showed that the 50-over format was sound in health and there was no need for dramatic changes,” Lorgat added.”The executive board meeting after the World Cup decided that the present format was doing well. That has not changed,” Lorgat stressed.Tendulkar had argued that four innings of 25 overs would be a fair way to balance the advantage gained by the team which won the toss in conditions such as bad weather, sub-quality pitches which historically had proven that a match can virtually be decided by the toss of a coin.advertisementDravid also backed the Cricket Board for deciding to put pressure on the ICC for revising the controversial Decision Review System of which he got the rough end of the stick in the Test and ODI rubbers in England.”It’s not set in stone. Anything connected with DRS is a work in progress. There are new challenges and questioned about it. Its up to the member boards (of the ICC) to ask whether things are better with it in place,” said the 39-year-old Dravid.Dravid, who was the lone batsman to show consistently superb form in difficult conditions against a top class England pace attack in the four-match Test rubber that India lost 0-4, was also controversially given out through the ‘Hot Spot’ image system on at least three occasions leading to big debates over DRS.last_img read more
