Thanks for the subscription. You know, I’m substituting
film school with your publication. As I’ve already spent $20,000
studying acting, so I thought it was a wise choice. Keep it coming.

I want to say that I enjoy your magazine because the
articles and advertising are concise and informative. I also think
the artwork by Tim Gabor is outstanding. Keep up the professional
quality work and I’m sure the popularity of your magazine will escalate.
There is one subject that I would like to see covered
by your magazine; it involves the stunt industry and the exclusion
of these talented people from Oscar consideration. It is great to
see a legend like Steven Spielberg finally receive his well-deserved,
formal recognition from the Academy. But I bet Steven himself would
have to agree that some of his best efforts were more than helped
along with those from the stunt world. Consider some of these Spielberg
action films: Jaws, Jurassic Park, and Raiders
of the Lost Ark, just to name a few. So why does the Academy
continue to ignore the outstanding work of these highly talented
people? Would it be possible to add, at least, a stunt coordinator
category? These are people who actually risk, and often times lose,
their lives to create entertainment for us. There are dozens of
highly skilled professional stunt people, both past and present,
who deserve to be honored on Oscar night. I think that adding at
least one or two stunt categories to the Oscar ceremonies would
not only be a long-awaited addition, but would make the entire evening
much more exciting.

Please send a one-year subscription of your mag to
me. Thanks. I enjoy your writing styles and presentations, but I
don’t get to see the magazine very often due to being in San Francisco.
