first_imgPhoto courtesy of Ariel HellerAriel Heller sat up in bed when he read the original script for his Student Academy Award-winning thesis film last spring. Upon reading it, Heller knew then he had to bring the script to life. The script was written by alumnus Celia Rettenmaeier for a simulated studio-like production course, CTPR 546, Heller was in. It was originally titled “Blue Gatorade and Cheetos,” but over the course of the year, Heller and Rettenmaeier developed the script into Mammoth, a film following two brothers embarking on a journey to Mammoth Lakes after one discovers he is diagnosed with terminally ill cancer. With its compelling characters and visuals, Mammoth won a silver medal for best narrative film by a U.S. school for the Student Academy Awards. An alumnus of the USC Cinematic Arts program, Heller was one of two USC student recipient filmmakers awarded this season.Heller recalled the developmental process for the film as streamlined and uncomplicated after sitting down with Rettenmaier. The original script could not be made in the production course because of its 12-minute time constraint, but the possibility of Rettenmaier’s script making it into Heller’s thesis film was a viable option. Rettenmaier agreed and Heller began adapting the script, then shooting the film in December 2016.After receiving a bachelor’s degree in musical theater from Emerson College in Boston, Heller moved to New York City and began working as a stage actor in the Blue Man Group and the critically acclaimed Broadway play War Horse. In 2014, he relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a master’s degree at USC.Heller credits renowned filmmakers such as Alexander Payne, Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jones as an early influence on his writing and directing style. “The kind of humor and sensibility, and edge and tone that those guys get has always been what I’m after,” Heller said. “It comes in performance and complexities in relationships … mixed with the absurdity of life and how ridiculous things are and the ability to laugh at ourselves, feel pain and be vulnerable.”The 22-minute film focuses on two brothers, played by Tad Cooley and Alex Hoeffler, grappling with themes of death, time and acceptance as one of them battles terminal cancer. Mammoth explores juxtaposing visuals and tone, with dark humor accompanied by vast seclusions of Northern California winter landscape.Heller petitioned at USC to include his own brother Caleb Heller, an American Film Institute graduate, as director of photography for Mammoth.The title of the film takes also on a double entendre, according to Heller. “[Mammoth is] not just the physical place, but the size of the decision, the size of the symbology of the biggest and last decision you’ll ever make,” Heller said.As a director, Heller doesn’t shy away from political stances. He openly creates statements emphasizing “death with dignity” or the “right-to-die” laws for patients battling terminal illnesses.“The reason why I was so compelled with the story is because death with dignity — as a cause in this country and a law — is one that had caught my eye a few years back,” Heller said. He specifically mentioned the controversial Brittany Maynard case, in which a 29-year-old woman decided to take her life after learning she had terminal brain cancer. The case propelled California to pass a law in June 2016, allowing individuals with a terminal diagnosis the right to physician-assisted suicide. Heller wanted to ensure Mammoth did not fall into the category of a soapbox film; he instead displays his point of view through the dynamic relationships of his characters.“It’s an opportunity to shed a light on something through a real moment, through a real relationship, one that’s more nuanced and more complicated,” Heller said. “I hope that anyone who comes to see the film who might otherwise be skeptical or in opposition to that right, might walk away from this movie seeing value in affording people the privilege to be in control at the end.”last_img read more

It came from Italy and is now sweeping through the Mediterranean. The new Spanish coalition government has announced in its recent manifesto that it will consider tobacco-style restrictions on gambling advertising; its Greek counterpart is proposing prohibiting advertising of RNG based casino games.Other European governments have stopped short of a complete ban, yet like for example the Swedes, the Belgians and lately also the Danes, are minded to put more or less severe restrictions on how gambling is allowed to be promoted. The governments in the throes of regulating their online gambling markets, such as the Netherlands, also tend to drift towards a more restrictive stance on gambling advertising.The fluid spectre is thus solidifying into yet another colossus of an issue for the industry to negotiate and find a response to. Not giving an efficient response would, in my view, be a road to perdition. However where lies the most navigable route between the Charybdis of a gambling ban and the Scylla of an unattractive customer proposition stripped of a number of perks that have been on offer in the past? Are we facing a Sisyphean task or does our chance of salvation go through completing a Thirteenth Labour of Hercules? Let’s, at least theoretically, attempt the latter here by taking advantage of some of the labours Hercules has kindly completed for us already.The dissection of the problem starts by cleansing the Augean stables of the rationale behind gambling advertising bans. I can almost hear the staccato voices of Italy’s Matteo Salvini and Spain’s Pablo Iglesias uniting in chorus and belting out that gambling advertising needs banning to protect consumers from the evil of a 24/7 exposure to ubiquitous online gambling and the ever increasing levels of gambling addiction resulting therefrom.Advertising is, in their view, one of the many heads of the gambling Hydra that require rather drastic trimming in a bid to secure a more responsible gambling environment.This would not only be an environment free from gambling in TV breaks but also free from a myriad of digital and physical promotional banners and hoardings the industry has introduced over the years. No more bonuses, no nothing …Brushing aside any speculation as to whether protectionism has a role to play when it comes to the motivation behind the draconian restrictions on gambling related advertising, I would be inclined to question the efficiency of a complete ban for several reasons:1) just like bans of individual gambling product categories, an advertising ban has the propensity to cast a larger segment of gambling demand into the tenets of the unregulated, or if you will, black market;2) the implication of the plunge into the abyss of a black market is an effective lowering of the overall responsible gambling standards in the market as a whole (arguably quite the opposite of what the likes of Messieurs Salvini and Iglesias allegedly intended in their fiery anti-gambling diatribes);3) a blanket advertising ban makes it more difficult for the end users to distinguish between legitimate licensed operators and the fly by night ones; and finally4) it materially contributes to stifling of competition on the market where the basic essence of the products on offer is largely identical and new product features replicable at a vertiginous speed (think cash out).The Augean stables may not be that clean after all… However, instead of crying over the spilt regulatory milk I would suggest it was high time to grab the (Herculean Cretan) Bull by the horns and seek to complete the Thirteenth Labour. The tools at our disposal are, with a little help from our friends in governments, legislation and, in reliance on ourselves, self regulation; I would suggest the governing principle to abide by is that one size does NOT fit all.What the above principle encapsulates is that crucially any advertising regulation needs to factor in the state of maturity of an individual gambling market. Newly regulated or regulating markets, such as for example the existing as well as prospective US markets, are best advised to adopt rather more lenient regulatory measures to start in a bid to ensure high levels of customer channelisation.Once this is achieved a more restrictive approach designed to regulate the volume and frequency of advertising could be considered without however turning the screw too much and always with a close eye on the actual market and customer needs, in particular in terms of consumer protection, underpinned by reliable analysis, not second guessing.As part of the advertising campaigns, today’s Herculeses (the stars and heroes of tennis courts, football pitches and ice hockey arenas) could be employed to convey responsible gambling messages in their capacities of role models. This is, I believe, the way to successfully fight the behemoth of blanket bans and excessively restrictive advertising rules without ending in the tentacles of Charybdis or the fangs of Scylla.Martin Lycka is Director of Regulatory Affairs at GVC Group.

first_imgDES MOINES — AARP Iowa held the first of what will be several education sessions Wednesday on a new law for family caregivers that goes into effect Monday.The group’s advocacy director Anthony Carroll says the CARE Act will make an impact across the state. “Family caregivers represent the majority of long-term services and support. With over 317-thousand family caregivers who provide care to loved ones in unpaid fashion every day,” Carroll says.The law requires hospitals to give patients the opportunity to name a caregiver at the start of the process. “If you’re going into a hospital with a loved one as a family caregiver — you perhaps don’t even identify yourself yet as a family caregiver,” Carroll says. “So, having the hospital ask a patient and loved one ‘do you have a family caregiver that you are going home to, would you like to record them and put them into your medical record’?”There is also followup to the initial notation of a caregiver. “And if you do chose to designate a caregiver — that caregiver is notified before the patient is sent home. And then, last but not least, there’s an opportunity have a discussion about the caregiver’s abilities, limitations, and an opportunity to receive instructions on any medical care needed before that patient is sent home — rather than you get home and realize, what do I need to do, how do I need to do this,” according to Carroll.He says the process is designed to take the surprises out of the situation for the caregiver. “Thinking from the git-go what you might need to do. Being prepared to ask questions, and then hopefully alleviating the stress that comes with that situation, being thrust in that role perhaps unanticipated after the fact,” Carroll says. “So, that’s really the idea, elevating family caregivers, helping them think about it upon admission.”Carroll says they also understand the issues facing healthcare providers and this should help them better server patients.“The provider themselves actually has a better understanding of what exactly care reality or support reality is this patient returning home to,” he says.Carroll says AARP has information available to help you understand the new law. “There’s free downloadable cards available — you don’t have to be an AARP member — there’s no cost, at www.AARP/IA. Again, that’s an opportunity for people to understand what the new law is. You can detach a wallet card and put it in your pocket,” Carroll says. He says they have been working with the area agencies on aging and other groups to get the information out about the new law.last_img read more
