EXCLUSIVE: Jonathan Stern, the Abominable Pictures president and comedy producer whose credits include Childrens Hospital and Burning Love, has signed with UTA. The deal comes as he heads to the Sundance Film Festival with A Futile and Stupid Gesture, the David Wain-directed pic about the formation of National Lampoon which Stern produced with his longtime manager Peter Principato.
Fox 2000 has promoted Nikki Ramey to VP Production and Molly Saffron to director of development, elevating the pair who have been at the 20th Century Fox film label for almost six years. Ramey, who joined as an assistant after working for Catherine Hardwicke, most recently worked on The Mountain Between Us, Joy and The Longest Ride. She is currently developing News of the World from Playtone and Gail Mutrux, the Veronica Roth adaptation Inertia and the Working Title romcom Happiness for Humans.
Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Lab and short-film alum Reinaldo Marcus Green makes his feature directorial debut with Monsters and Men, the timely drama that is having its world premiere Friday in the U.S. Dramatic Competition lineup at the Sundance Film Festival. The pic, about the aftermath of a police shooting in Brooklyn’s Bed–Stuy neighborhood, is bowing at 12:15 PM at the Eccles Theater — the same slot as the 2012 Sundance breakout Beasts of the Southern Wild.
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".
