Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds @ Funny or Die!

Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds and Betty White take a new hilarious approach to promoting their new romantic-comedy film – The Proposal – by spoofing themselves and their marquee’s alter ego in this Funny or Die short. The Proposal rolls into theaters on Friday, June 19.

In director Anne Fletcher’s The Proposal, when high-powered book Bullock‘s editor Margaret faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she’s actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon Reynolds‘ assistant Andrew, who she’s tormented for years. He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own. The unlikely couple heads to Alaska to meet his quirky family and the always-in-control city girl finds herself in one comedic fish-out-of-water situation after another. With an impromptu wedding in the works and an immigration official on their tails, Margaret and Andrew reluctantly vow to stick to the plan despite the precarious consequences.

Ejen Chuang @ Two Shows, One Night!

My bud Ejen Chuang has two upcoming shows on Thursday, June 11 @ Todd/Browning Gallery [East to West] and Spring Arts Tower [Life Below The Line], the exhibits will include images of singer Matthew Bellamy of Muse @ Starlight and Queen of the Stone Age @ 3 & 7 music video shoots. Here’s a snag posting from his EjenChuang.blogspot.com below.

So this is my official posting. I’ll have two shows at June’s Downtown Art Walk (that is June 11, 2009). Yes two….and here’s the story behind this. For about a year now, the management of my office building have egged me on showing my work in the lobby. They know I do production stills and behind the scenes and I’ve been tinkering with an idea of documenting “life below the line” so finally after 8 or 10 months, I’ve decided to just do it. So when you walk into this 1920s Art Deco office building, my images will be gracing the walls of the lobby.

Meanwhile, the owner of the Todd/Browning Gallery (yes, I believe this is a tribute to THAT Todd) around the corner had seen my series I did on folks who dressed up at anime conventions and been pushing me to show it. I feel flatter, seriously because they usually don’t put up unpublished photographers and I don’t have a book out. The images were shot at the Anime Expo convention from the summer of 2008. I used to be into anime when I was younger but stop going a while back. That summer Anime Expo happen to be at the LA Convention Center so I decided to bring my camera, lights and a backdrop. 3 days and 250 portraits later, I had a series 🙂

The Todd/Browning one is a group show with another photographer and the show itself is called “East to West”.

Don’t worry, they’re only around the corner from each other so you won’t have to walk too far. For those who don’t know about the Downtown Art Walk, it has grown so much in the past few years. Attendance is usually around 3,000 folks and can feel like a street fair. Local restaurants and shops have specials going on during the event and last month the Kogi Korean Taco truck made an appearance! I suggest getting here early to snag parking. It usually gets going closer to 7:30/8 pm.

Full detail @ downtownartwalk.com. Anyways, hope to see y’all there !!!
