Short Cuts

And the Fanciful Statuette Goes to ... Dept.: Longtime Richard Linklater editor Sandra Adair has been nominated for a 2004 Ace Eddie Award for her work on The School of Rock. The American Cinema Editors Awards will take place Sunday, Feb. 15, at the Beverly Hilton, with Adair up against the editors of Bend It Like Beckham, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Finding Nemo, and, yes, Lost in Translation in the Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy or Musical) category... What do you get when you put eight acting coaches in a room together? Chaos, sure, but hopefully organized chaos, of the type that benefits those seeking info on Meisner, Chubick, Strasberg, and method-acting techniques. To that end, Reel Women has put together an Afternoon of Character(s), Saturday, Jan. 31, 1-4pm, at Ventana del Soul Cultural Center & Coffee House, 1834 E. Oltorf. The event will (so far) bring together local acting teachers Gary Chason (fresh off his Dear Pillow beat in Park City), Gabriel Folse, Babs George, Ron Hayden, Mona Lee, CK McFarland, Steve Prince, and Marci Winters-Allen to discuss everything from sense memory to substitution and how/when/where to use the myriad techniques available to actors today. The cost for the event is $20 for Reel Women members and $30 for nonmembers, and space is limited. Call 448-9090 or e-mail to make reservations.
