It’s been a challenging month for film in Atlanta. We’ve had snow, ice, and temperatures swinging from either end of the spectrum—not exactly conditions favorable to filmmaking. (No really, it’s been an issue.) But despite Mother Nature doing everything she can to delay the release of our yet-to-be favorite films and television shows, Georgia’s film industry soldiers on. Here’s what we saw in January.
Anyone who tells you dessert isn’t important is plain wrong. Dessert is the best part of any meal. If suddenly the apocalypse were upon us, are you going to crave a bite of a kale salad or a bowl of ice cream? Exactly. But beyond traditional ice cream counters and bakeries, ultra trendy (and Instagramable) concoctions of rolled iced cream, mile-high milkshakes, doughnut cones, and all unicorn everything have been popping up on menus across the country.
We’ve come to the end of another year in Atlanta film and television production. The day-to-day number of filming signs is starting to dwindle, as the holiday break begins to send casts and crews back to their families. Despite the winter slump, there are still a few productions in town. (And of course, more to come in January.) Here’s what we saw in December:Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, and Jon Bernthal are still working on The First Man (production code: COLIN).
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".
