Malcolm Venville Poses Zillion Dollar Question to Karl Lagerfeld
Look away, KISS historians. A sly new short posted on Vimeo “mockuments” how the band’s hit ballad “Beth” came about. Turns out Beth was home cooking meat loaf while her hubby and the song’s co-writer, KISS drummer Peter Criss, was at the studio with the rest of the band. She wants him home for dinner. His response, of course, is the song’s famous refrain: “Beth, what can I do?”

AMC Developing Sci-Fi Drama From Joseph Kosinski, Travis Beacham
There aren’t many people who you’d endure several flights, two long train journeys, exceedingly early wake-up calls and a soggy McDonald’s hamburger dinner to spend one minute with—but that’s how powerful the pull of fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld can be. And that pilgrimage is exactly what director Malcolm Venville undertook for a brief encounter with the Chanel and Fendi designer, artist, photographer and one-man cultural phenomenon in St. Moritz in February, where the polymath was revealing an exhibition at Galerie Gmurzynska.

Creativity Features Malcolm Venville's Charming New Commercial for Google's Nexus 10 Tablet & Mullen
DEADLINE: Cinemax has given a pilot order to Quarry, a drama project based on the series of novels by Max Allan Collins (Road To Perdition graphic novel). Written by Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller, Quarry is set in the 1970s and centers on a Marine sniper who, upon his return home from Vietnam in 1973, finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. Combat-hardened and disillusioned, he’s recruited into a network of contract killers and corruption spanning the length of the Mississippi River. John Hillcoat is set to direct the pilot, co-produced by Anonymous Content.
We already saw how Google’s suite of products helped a couple of new parents get through their pregnancy and give birth. Now, Mullen and Google take a cue from that spot, which was created in the U.K., for a new film promoting the Google Nexus 10 tablet. Unlike the British film, which focused on the entire suite of services offered by the company, this one stays simple. A couple shares their tablet while trying to resolve an all-important debate: What should they name the child? Malcolm Venville at Anonymous directs.
