An interview with film producer Kira Davis
Santa Fe native Kira Davis has built quite a career for herself since trading the Land of Enchantment for Hollywood. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from New Mexico State University, Davis found herself interning on a small, 1996 comedy called Love Is All There Is, starring a teenage Angelina Jolie. It was there she met the co-presidents of Alcon Entertainment and began working with them as an assistant. Since 2001 she has co-produced The Affair of the Necklace, Love Don’t Cost a Thing, Chasing Liberty and Racing Stripes. In 2005 she executive produced The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and became a full-fledged producer with the sequel The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.
The Digital Arts Department at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design will host a visit from award-winning Mexican animator Pablo Calvillo from Sept. 19 to 21. Calvillo has worked for a number of design, animation and film studios in Mexico, the Czech Republic, Australia and the US. He has done everything from 3D animation to layout to art direction on feature films such as Ice Age: Continental Drift, Epic, Happy Feet Two and Astro Boy as well as the upcoming projects Mad Max: Fury Road and The Lego Movie.
Esquire TV: Take Two
Men’s magazine launches new network—for real this time
Let’s try this again, shall we? Way back in April, I reported on the newly minted Esquire Network. The televised spin-off of the long-running men’s magazine was slated to take over programming of the formerly video game-focused network G4 on April 22. At the time, I expressed a healthy amount of skepticism about Esquire’s ability to launch an entire television network based around exactly two docu-reality shows (one cooking show and one travel show). Obviously the executives in charge were listening to me because less than a week before the net was set to debut, Esquire pulled the plug.
