Comic Con 2016

Do you ever wish to save the entire world with cool superpowers and tight spandex like I do? The answer should be yes. Otherwise you may be living in another dimension were pop culture doesn’t exist because every human living in the 21st-century on planet Earth is obsessed with space raccoons, storm troopers and meta humans.
Just go to the Paris Comic Con and you’ll understand. This year, cosplayers from all around the world joined forces to showcase their best costumes. From Jedis to Harley Quinn and the Joker, every cosplayer had their unique style, walking among the visitors and taking selfies with them.

I had the chance to cover the first day (October 21st) of the 2016 Paris Comic Con and be part of this intense 3 day exhilarating convention.
The convention center opens at 9:30 am and arriving early is the best way to beat the crowd and avoid the long lines that start to form rapidly at animation booths. You could take pictures with BB-8, stormtroopers or even get a polaroid photo of you at the Instax by Fujifilm booth.

The VR experience was also popular. The PS4 instalment allowed visitors to fight crime as Batman and the Partouche Booth offered a Roller Blaster 4D experience.

Canal was a generous exhibitor, handing out bags and entertaining visitors with quizzes and opportunities to win gifts.
Many exhibitors not only promoted their brand and merchandise, but they were also eager to share their passion. Figurines, t-shirts, comics and costumes were a big hit among fans.

Even if you left your light sabre at home (because of safety regulations of course) you’ll have plenty of opportunities to demonstrate how well you use the force. There was a light sabre initiation proposed by the Light Sabre Sport League and many other opportunities to get your hands on one.

There were plenty of Star Wars themed activities; ranging from photos to conferences.
I attended the masterclass delivered by Lorne Peterson, FX artist. He created most of the models for Star Wars. He shared his experience with humour and gave us funny behind-the-scenes anecdotes.

At lunch time, superheroes get hungry as you’ll witness spidermen and batmen waiting in line to get a hot dog or fresh crepes at the food corner. I decided to try Japanese delicacies. I even treated myself to a freshly baked matcha and dark chocolate cookie.
To feed another hunger, the one for series and movies, I went to see the Warner Bros. Television event which projected trailers for up and coming movies and the first episode of the Season 3 of the Flash. After that, the pilot episode of Supergirl was on the menu.

Erik Larsen, illustrator known for his work on Spider-Man Marvel and other comics gave a conference. Visitors got to discover his career at the Masterclass room.

Other talents were here; actress Eliza Dushku, costume designer for Agent Carter Giovanna Melton, actress Carice Van Houten, cosplayer Leeanna Vamp, comic artist Trevor Hairsine, HBO storyboarder William Simpson…

The highlight of the day was the Luke Cage panel. Actor Mike Colter, costume designer Stephanie Maslansky and illustrator Shawn Martinbrough gave us an insight of the creation of the new Netflix show. Everyone was listening attentively to the interesting process of how the character was brought to the screen.

After clapping my hands cheerfully to several rounds of applause, I went to the mezzanine floor of the convention center. The atmosphere was laid-back and intimate. Illustrators were signing books or artwork and connecting with their fans.

I came across the Fusion Designs Caricatures booth. These guys offered amazing artwork.

To end the day on a good note, I attended the Premiere of the movie Arrival. It was such a compelling movie. The kind that makes such an impactful impression on you that you want to see it again. Just like how badly you want to go to Comic Con again next year!

The opening day of the Comic Con 2016 in Paris was a gathering of visitors and die hard fans wearing spandex and other cool costumes. At the masterclasses and other conferences, we had the chance to listen to professionals who described us how they created these great projects. We also got to see an exclusive of the Arrival, never shown before. Comic Con 2016 was a marvellous experience. Hollywood Press Corps is looking forward to the third edition next year.

MaMA Festival: The Music Marathon To Run To in Paris

 

It’s 3 days, 145 concerts, 15 venues and 81 conferences for professionals.

If you love music more than running a marathon, then you are probably like everyone else. And thanks to the MaMA Festival, you will be able to have your own marathon; that is to say dance the night away to diverse and incredible musical performances.


With 15 venues you won’t have to run a mile to get to (they are all located in the same area of the neighbourhood of Montmartre and everything is within a five minute walking distance), the MaMA offers a unique live music experience. Moreover, you get some fresh air between concerts, talk business or if your feet get tired dancing there’s also the Metro 2 you can ride and bars to keep you hydrated!

The best part of the MaMA festival is that there is always a concert scheduled somewhere. Conveniently, there is an app you can download on your smartphone. You will have all the information about the artists and the schedule. Picking a random venue and letting yourself be surprised by a new band or singer (you will now be obsessed with!) is exciting.

I had the chance to go to the Festival for The Experience Magazine. Here’s my experience:

Day 1: Jazz, electro, guitar acoustic, reggae… a night to remember

On the first day, Gaspard Royant showcased his smooth dance moves and jazzy tunes at the Cigale.
The Slow Show gave the crowd chills with heartfelt and emotion filled songs at the Divan du Monde.
Nouvelle Vague electrified the scene with passion and devilish lyrics.
In a softer atmosphere and more private venue, Siv Jacobsen at Au Petit Moulin and Charlie Cunningham at the Theatre de L’Atalante transported us, playing acoustic guitar and putting us in a mellow mood.
After that, the Legendary Tigerman’s mad rock and roll performance and Biga* Ranx’s fast pace rapping and reggae hip hop style turned our heads around, making it a night to remember.

Day 2: The marathon continues with rap music, electro, disco pop…

Youssoupha, a well-known French rap artist, performed in front of an admirative and playful crowd. He shared so much energy and emotion with the crowd in celebration of the record label BELIEVE’s ten year anniversary.
Then, a beer in hand and Shannon Wright on stage playing piano and singing enchanting melodies was the ideal setting to relax.
The duo Tambour Battant took everyone back in a party mood. Electronic sounds and drums shook the whole venue of La Boule Noire.
Kumisolo played with the Kung Fu Boys at Le Bus Palladium. She’s a lovely singer that blends disco pop and French songs beautifully and humorously. Her soft voice and upbeat songs were a splendid way to end the night.

Day 3: The grand finale: French and British gems

On the third day, jazz player Guillaume Perret fired up the stage with psychedelic saxophone harmonies and gave a powerful visual experience.

Pogo Car Crash Control, a young energetic French rock band performed while flipping their hair to the beat of the drums and bass guitars.
Samba de la Muerte introduced fascinating experimental sounds at the Divan du Monde.
At the Cigale, the venue turned into a club thanks to the electronic mixes of La Fine Équipe. Then, French dandy singer Christophe enchanted the crowd with his velvety voice full of emotions.
Two Londoners performed at the Boule Noire. First, Jelani Blackman, a rapper and saxophonist. Then Jake Isaac, who recently signed a record deal. Both were immensely talented. Especially Isaac who took his acoustic guitar and sang among the crowd. His last song, performed a cappella, was poignant and heavenly. The perfect notes to end the marathon and head to bed.

Of course there are so much more concerts I did not get to attend but my ears, eyes and heart are pleased with the ones I saw.
As the MaMA Festival is mainly a professional event, this is the business playground to go to for people working in the music industry. It is a great opportunity to network and discover new artists. But curious people and music enthusiasts are welcome too. It’s a breathtaking event everyone has to experience!

Introducing the 2017 NU MUSES

treats! Magazine Founder Steve Shaw and Celebrated Photographer David Bellemere Present the Final 12 NU MUSES For the First Ever NU MUSES 2017 Fine Art Calendar

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – September 30, 2016 – Following weeks of judging and casting, and after receiving thousands of submissions from around the world, Steve Shaw and David Bellemare are pleased to introduce the final 12 NU MUSES for the first ever NU MUSES 2017 fine art calendar. NU MUSES will be a millennial take of the classic Pirelli calendar of the 1970’s but reimagined as something artistic, classic and inspirational. NU MUSES aims to redefine how society perceives nudity, reestablishing nudity as something of natural timeless beauty to be celebrated in an elegant and sophisticated way. Over the last few months candidates from around the world have submitted photos and videos in the hopes of becoming one of the final 12 NU MUSES and following a top 100 selection, a round of social media voting and a final the 30 selection, the judges and Creative Director Christianne Brooks, have now made their decision and are introducing the final 2017 NU MUSES – http://numuses.com/site/finalists_dev

After receiving global submissions from the Philippines, to India, Brazil, and Mexico, the judges and creative director, evaluated the models assessing them on three categories; their unique look and beauty, social media voting allowing people to vote on their favorites, and most importantly their inspiring personality and views towards nudity. The response from the models was outstanding and although the original plan was to announce to a top 20, the submissions were so incredible that both Shaw and Bellemere felt a top 30 was required. The final 30 were then part of a final casting in Los Angeles and New York City where famed French photographer, David Bellemere photographed the remaining models to truly discover which models epitomized the qualities of a NU MUSE – confidence, inspiration, and comfort in the nude form.

After thorough evaluation we are proud to announce the final 12 beautiful, talented, and inspirational NU MUSES.

1. Jessica Clements from Elite Models “I look at timeless beauty as something that is more just a pretty face or a nice body. It is something within the soul, and you can never truly be beautiful if you do not do beautiful things. I try to live by that as much as I can.” @jessmclements

2. Nidhi Sunil from Industry Models “I feel timelessly beautiful, not because I consider myself as a separate entity more beautiful in contrast to some perceived ordinariness around me, but because I feel connected and see beauty in everything around me.” @nidhisunil

3. Rachel Cook from LA Models “I am so excited to say that I am one of the 12 NU MUSES! I am really looking forward to shooting with David (Bellemere) again. Nude photography is an art and it can be so empowering and I hope that through this project we are able to show you guys that.” @rachelc00k

4. Ebonee Davis from MC2 “I’m a timeless beauty because I transcend any age, race or time. I give people what’s real and that level of humanity can’t be limited by time. I give people a feeling, and feelings last forever. Even when memories fade.” @eboneedavis

5. Janine Tugonon from MSA Los Angeles “I flew to the US from Philippines with a DREAM. I wanted to AIM HIGHER. to be globally known and excellent in this industry (modeling and acting). Being in this calendar is a huge opportunity to showcase my beauty and personality, a great exposure for me and hopefully will be the beginning of a long lasting successful career in this field I’m very passionate about.” @tugononjanine

“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment” -Michelangelo
“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment”
-Michelangelo

6. Isabelle Boemeke from Muse Models. What does nudity mean to you?
“It means not being able to hide behind your ego, or theatrics. It is you, like you came to the world, pure and natural.” @isabelleboemeke

7. Alejandra Guilmant from Photogenics “No one is timeless, that’s the beauty of photography and art; they make beauty timeless.” @aleguilmant

8. Vika Levina from Women 360 “I always wanted to inspire people, it’s the biggest award I believe. I think David (Bellemere) see women as muses, every woman he worked with he presents differently, shows her special beauty. It would be an honor to work with David.” @levina_viktoriya

9. Anna Wolf from Wilhelmina Models lives in NYC but is originally from North Carolina. “When I was little my nickname was Noodle because long and thin like a noodle and eventually that shortened to Noodie. When people heard my mom calling me that they thought she was saying “nudie” and now I am representing as a “nudie.” Haha” @anna_wolf3

10. Sabina Karlsson from JAG Models “I’d like to show that being nude is a form of art, and that being nude as a curvy woman with thighs and hips is as beautiful as any other body type. You own your body and should be proud of it – it’s unique.” @thesabinakarlsson
11. Keilani Asmus from Wilhelmina Models shares what viewpoint she would like to change with this nude calendar, “I want to beg the question as to why shame is associated with my body. I want people to question why they are against nudity in the first place. I’m hoping to help normalize the body, rather than build it up as this taboo thing that should be hidden behind closed doors.”
@keilanimalia

12. Ariela Oliviera from New York Models shares a message she wants to send to women by appearing in NU MUSES, “Always feel and look confident, strong, sensual, positive and elegant with your perfect body shape… your beauty will shine from within.” @ariela_o

The 2017 NU MUSES are all uniquely beautiful both inside and out. The diversity of each model doesn’t only lie in their looks, but also their passions and reasons for wanting to be a NU MUSE model. Speaking about the response and submissions Creative Director Christianne Brooks said: “We were so blown away by the magnitude of support for this project. We have had over 130 million online and social media impressions, each candidate’s social effort, was truly awe inspiring and shows us how poignant and timely this conversation around true beauty and nudity is. It’s such a wonderful time for women and we hope to empower these women and others to celebrate the female form in a sophisticated, elegant and most natural way. Nudity is one of the oldest and classic forms of art and we aim, through NU MUSES, to help reestablish that.”

The NU MUSES 2017 calendar shoot will take place from October 16th-25th. Each NU MUSE will be flown to the Dominican Republic to shoot with David Bellemere at the beautiful Casa Kimball, a private villa located on the north coast of the island. This breathtaking setting with the Caribbean sunlight, coco palms and almond trees, a infinity edge swimming pool, and uninterrupted 180 degree Atlantic ocean views will provide a truly tropical and natural paradise to capture images that will truly reflect the NU MUSES movement. The NU MUSE luxurious calendar will begin presales in mid-November. Each of the 2017 NU MUSE’s being introduced today receives $10,000 and they a part of the calendar launch event and dinner at Art Basel Miami this December where NU MUSES will also be presented as an art exhibition allowing the beauty of nudity to be seen in a gallery setting. A docu-film featuring all NU MUSES is also currently in production and will be officially announced soon.
