An erotic underwater love scene, the cheap but colorful motels of the displaced, a tennis match with more than a trophy at stake: Three cinematographers explain how they got their shots, and why they mattered. The scene: Hailey (played by newcomer Bria Vinaite), a tattooed, twentysomething single mom raising her daughter in a cheap motel just blocks from Disney World, gets in a blowout argument with the gruff-but-sympathetic manager-handyman, Bobby (Willem Dafoe).
George Daugherty remembers sitting on the shag carpet circa 1960s, planted in front of the family TV to watch the Saturday morning cartoons.It didn't take him long to figure out that the soundtrack to Bugs, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Tweety and the gang was the same music he was learning in his piano and cello lessons. "The fact that it was all based on classical music was not something that occurred to me for awhile," Daugherty said.
Mark Tusk has (relatively) fond memories of Mir-Anon, the informal network of former employees of the indie powerhouse Miramax Film Corp. “When you weren’t feeling terrorized, the people you were meeting were extraordinary,” recalls Tusk, who worked as a vice-president of acquisitions for Miramax from 1988 to 1996.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
