True-life survival adventure stays afloat because of Shailene Woodley
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  June 1, 2018, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Adrift is a shipwreck movie that is drawn from the true experience of Tami Oldham, who in 1983 survived 41 days adrift in the Pacific after the yacht she was sailing with her fiancé Richard Sharp was pummeled into floating kindling by Hurricane Raymond, a quickly intensifying and unpredictable storm whose peak winds reached 145 mph. Adrift is also a handy one-word description to sum up the film’s tenor: unsure of whether the sea epic intends to be a love story or an action vehicle..."

Of Family Heirlooms and Industrial Films
The Texas Archive of the Moving Image preserves the state's cinematic roads less traveled
Screens Story  May 27, 2011, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...That's all fine and good, but it's always nice to know that there are odder, quirkier agents out there working to bring a little something different to such significant occasions. Thankfully, the Texas Film Commission partners with the Texas Archive of the Moving Image, and there is very little that is typical or garden-variety about the TAMI..."

Reclaiming Texas History, One Home Movie at a Time
The missionary zeal of the Texas Archive of the Moving Image
Screens Story  February 27, 2009, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...The day I visited, the office was under siege by dozens of film canisters that had been delivered by the Texas Department of Public Safety that morning; the canisters held films from the Fifties and Sixties trumpeting the importance of bike safety, the ins and outs of hurricane preparedness, and the dangers of drunken driving. Founded in 2002 by film archivist and UT professor (and devoted Sandra Bullock fan) Caroline Frick, TAMI is an organization dedicated to the discovery, preservation, and presentation of these kinds of forgotten curios from Texas' cinematic past..."

Austin’s Fallout Theater Phoenixes up from The New Movement Ashes
New bosses, different from the old bosses, herald a fresh start
DAILY Arts  May 8, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Because The New Movement’s break-up – resulting from multiple allegations of sexual misconduct and general abuse-of-power by previous owners Chris Trew and Tami Nelson, who also owned and ran the TNM franchise in New Orleans – and that break-up’s fallout has nothing to do with the name of what the former powerhouse of comedy has become: The Fallout Theater...."

The Tangible Pleasures of Cinema
The Sprocket Society gets hands on with film
Screens Story  August 10, 2012, by Leah Churner
"...When we think of film preservation, we usually think of efforts to salvage the content of old movies. But what about preserving film's contexts – the crackle and pop of the optical soundtrack, the know-how to thread a projector, the collector's thrill of discovery, and the massive history of experimental, industrial, and homemade movies produced outside the Hollywood system? These are some of the topics that inspired the formation of the Sprocket Society, a new joint project between the Alamo Drafthouse and the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI)...."

Lovey and Lovey: Tippling twosome toasts the town (but no titillation, please)
The gin-soaked alter egos of comedians Tami Nelson and Michael Jastroch dish on Austin, alcohol, and their new show
Arts Story  July 11, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...Who doesn't love a cocktail? Rather, who doesn't love a cocktail more than Lovey and Lovey? The comic alter egos of ColdTowne's Michael Jastroch and Tami Nelson swill enough hooch to make Albee's boozehounds George and Martha seem like members of the Temperance Society. Concocted when Nelson and Jastroch were still living in New Orleans and still dating, Lovey and Lovey have outlasted their creators' romantic relationship and gone on to earn Best of the Fest honors in the 2005 Lone Star Sketch Festival and 2008 FronteraFest..."

ColdTowne: Home on the strange
When it comes to the improvisers of ColdTowne, you're in for a really enjoyable time watching these guys do their stuff
Arts Story  August 3, 2007, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...The night we went to get reacquainted with ColdTowne's ever-changing act, Michael Jastroch, Justin York, Tami Nelson, Arthur Simone, and Chris Trew were wrapping their quick and clever minds around the suggestions "Supreme Court" and "séance." A series of scenes, mostly untethered from any common narrative, blew across the boards like a gale-force gallimaufry intent on flattening the audience's resistance to laughter. There were sketches about a judge consulting with a demon, a woman more in love with her dog than with her boyfriend, multiple prayer-answers requested of a god as if he were a sort of omnipotent drive-up-window flunky, a waiter/bodybuilder trapped by free weights while his shiftmate/spotter was in the lunch-rush weeds, all of it more or less spurred by the two suggestions or by tangents off those suggestions..."
