What Will You Do with Your Public Space Today?

Some folks who live, work or play downtown were greeted with a pleasant surprise Friday as they strolled down Barnard or Bull Street or hunted for a parking space. Six teams of SCAD architecture students “rented” downtown parking spaces from 9 a.m. to noon and, instead of filling the space with a sedan or a pickup, set up public-use spaces that everyone could enjoy. Everything from lawn furniture to board games occupied the parking spaces, encouraging community participation and the reassessment of how we use our public space—sidewalks, streets, parking spaces, all of it—from the edge of one building to the next.

Student Short Films

Trustees Theater or Lucas Theatre? It was 9:30 AM and, consequently, too early for decisions. I suppose I could’ve flipped coin if I hadn’t just stuffed my entire life savings into the parking meter. Clueless and coinless, I opted for Trustees because I wasn’t sure I could make it around the corner without succumbing to the biting—okay, nibbling—cold that blew in overnight.

I flashed the usher my festival badge and asked what was showing. “A block of student short films,” she replied.

An Interview with Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone saunters off the elevator at SCAD’s Jen Library and takes a moment to acknowledge everyone in the lobby awaiting his arrival. He’s dressed in all black with the exception of a button down white shirt peeking from the collar of his sweater. He’s surprisingly soft around the edges—his eyelids weigh heavily on his dark pupils, and his mouth appears to be frozen in that moment just before a smile cracks. As if something has struck him funny but it hasn’t fully registered.

The Late Show and Q&A with Lily Tomlin

In 1981, she was the Incredible Shrinking Woman. Yesterday she was anything but.

After a special screening of The Late Show (1977), Lily Tomlin walked onto the stage of Trustees Theater and modestly—almost shyly—waved to the audience that greeted her with a standing ovation. Tomlin smiled sweetly as she perched herself onto her chair like an origami crane, her wispy arms tucked and her ankles demurely crossed. She remained that way for about three minutes.

Then Tomlin started to hum—her stories got longer and her gestures bigger; at one point she leapt from her chair in a grand gesture, illustrating what “big” acting looks like. The audience—a fair mix of Laugh-In and NCIS fans—lapped it up, laughing at every sideways glance Tomlin expertly cast. Her humor is all in the timing, though she would never admit it. When asked if there’s a secret to great comedy, she deadpanned “I don’t know,” and got a good laugh. After a brief pause, she doubled-down with: “If I did tell you, I’d have to gas this place.”

Exclusive Interview: Ray Liotta

When he was 30 years old, Ray Liotta scored the job actors dream of their entire lives—the leading role in a gangster flick directed by Martin Scorsese. After his debut as Henry Hill in Goodfellas, his career skyrocketed and he subsequently made over 60 films, including Field of Dreams, Copland and The Son of No One, the film he debuted on Sunday night as part of the Savannah Film Festival. He also accepted a Lifetime Achievement at the Trustees Theatre before the screening.
Earlier in the day, Liotta sat down with South and talked about his new film, his big break and his advice for budding actor and film professionals.

South magazine: What’s your number one piece of advice for students about to embark on a career in the film industry?

Ray Liotta: I think that they should continue studying. I think it’s important to keep honing your craft, so when the time does come you’re ready for it. There are some great teachers out there.
