From the Vaults: Zoe Kazan Can

My first notice of Zoe Kazan came toward the end of 2009, when the rising actress could be seen in flurry of three end-of-the-year movies playing on Austin screens: Revolutionary Road, It's Complicated, and Me and Orson Welles. All were supporting roles, and none were wholly indicative of the voice that would emerge as the screenwriter of Ruby Sparks. Read More | Comment »

It's a video-game plot as old as time: a badass unicorn needs to protect Frank the Narwhal while supplying said narwhal with tacos. Why tacos? Because without them Frank gets sassy and impossible to be around. Yup, it's a tried and true game trope. Oh, wait, no it's not. It's brilliant! And fresh from the minds of middle-schoolers attending UT's Game Camp. Read More | Comment »
