Stock in Six Flags Inc. fell Friday on growing speculation that the theme park operator may be forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after it said it could not meet a looming financing obligation. Six Flags shares, which have traded at less than $1 since September, lost 3 cents, to 16 cents. In its annual report Wednesday, it said a Chapter 11 filing is possible if the company cannot reach a deal to restructure its debt. If the company defaults on its preferred income redeemable shares at maturity Aug. 15, it would allow its lenders to demand payment on other financial obligations. Six Flags Inc., which is ...

Yes, it’s harder to build, maintain and grow the professional voiceover career than ever before. And yes, more people are competing for the work than ever before. Not exactly news, huh? So what is? The Shift . The shift is one of the reasons why a lot of solid careers are not as solid as they once were. The shift is the change that began sweeping through the industry last fall. But, here’s the crazy making part. It isn’t totally replacing reads many producers still seek. So how do you know what to bring to the booth? And how does this jibe with the emphasis we have placed on The Signature Read since we started ... market research, surveys and trends
A film project goes through the same stages as other domain-enabled business change project, and other domains plays a different role at each stage. Investing in a motion picture is risky business. Unless a film was fortunate enough to garner sufficient advance sales, to cover at least the movie’s production cost, there is no guarantee and little promise that the investors will recoup their investment or earn a small profit. Film is probably the worst investment anyone could make. One might as well go to Las Vegas or Mumbai and throw the dice- in fact, those odds are probably better.

Among the many people I got to meet in person during the course of my travels in 2007 was a very talented gentleman named Peter O’Connell , a genuinely brilliant voiceover talent and an even more brilliant marketer of his voiceover services. How brilliant? Well, here is a survey of what I see as the single greatest bit of blog marketing, at least in the world of voiceover blogs, that I’ve ever seen. One that it’s been playing out right before our eyes in the last 2 weeks. First, Peter identified a subject about which he felt passionately , and not only he, but quite a few others. That subject being the decision ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
That’s the name used around the world for what we here in the USA calls “football.” (The rest of the world, of course, uses that term to refer to what we in the States call “soccer.”) My friend Ralph Hass emails to say that he searched my blog and discovered that I’ve used the term football only twice before. Today is the third time because you might just enjoy Ralph’s blog post Football FEVER!

THE X is returned to our TV screens and thus to the newspapers’ front page. And there is a story linking Katie Waissel to Simon Cowell and Sony BMG. You see, Katie is no enthusiastic amateur fluffing her lines and begging for one more chance to live her “dream”. Had she just got her song right first time over, Katie would have been less memorable. But she ‘fluffled’ it, and having begged for another chance, Cowell gave her “ 20 seconds ”. That make-or-break time limit was extended when Katie started singing. As such, Katie ended up on stage and on camera longer than most. Why? Is it because she is in with the management at Sony ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Television may be a vast wasteland, but for the last four years a group of investors has been working to establish an oasis for Ovation, an independent channel devoted to art and contemporary culture. It's not easy being a little guy in a land of media giants, lacking leverage and deep pockets. But the Santa Monica-based Ovation has notched impressive gains and is attempting to prove that an arts channel can thrive on TV. Available in only 5 million homes in 2007, the channel now can be seen in about 42 million homes, or nearly half of all cable and satellite households in the country. Ovation also has bolstered its roster ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Motion pictures and television. Performing arts. New media. Museums. These "creative industries," and others like them, belong to one of the fastest-growing economic sectors not only in the United States, but worldwide. The tremendous growth of these industries has created a need for professionals who can combine both management and leadership skills with a thorough understanding of art, entertainment, and media production. Drexel's Entertainment and Arts Management (EAM) program, offered through the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, prepares students for this challenge by providing both a ...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
I am an avid autograph collector, and have been so for many years now. I started by writing to my favourite stars as a child, with a very good success rate. If you need a contact address for a celebrity, then I will do my best to help you. I cannot help with valuations for autographs, but if you are in the UK then I can point you in the right direction. I cannot help with ascertaining whether a signature is genuine, either; I can simply help you find that (sometimes elusive) contact address, whether a UK-based or a US-based celebrity. Experience I have been writing to celebrities (TV, cinema and sports stars) on and off for 20 ...
Someone told me that their favorite first question was "Which way is north?" It was always asked in a room with no windows. It didn't really matter if they knew, it was how they went about answering the question. Did they just know? Did they try and figure it out? Did they guess? Did they ask why? Did they refuse to answer the question? Did they get upset? He said that a lot of the time the response was very interesting. Jesse Vigil speaks below about not getting too hung up on these types of questions, and I agree they shouldn't be the focus of the interview. I asked my friend about this "north" question and he ...
