We can win our next games, says Hoops’ boss

first_imgChris Ramsey has every faith in his side’s chances of beating relegation despite their 1-0 home defeat to derby rivals Chelsea.Cesc Fabregas scored an 87th minute winner for the Premier League leaders, with their only shot on target.It was the home side who had the most chances and Blues boss Jose Mourinho had goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to thank after two brilliant saves from Matt Phillips and Charlie Austin.And Rangers’ courageous display against the table toppers gives Ramsey hope ahead of a crucial season run-in, when they must pick up points against the likes of West Ham, Liverpool, Manchester City, Newcastle and fellow relegation rivals Leicester in the final game of the season if they are to survive.“I think we can stay up,” the QPR boss said. “I think we can win our next games and stay up.“We know that we can perform at a level and it’s down to us to go and do it.“But at the end of the day that would have been a valuable point gained today to get us out of the mire that we’re in.”After the game, goalkeeper Robert Green received criticism after his miss-kick allowed Eden Hazard to dart forward and lay off an assist for Fabregas.But Ramsey was adamant the England international was not to blame and that his side should have defended the situation better.“It’s not Rob Green’s fault,” said the former Tottenham coach.“We could have defended that better than that, once the ball had dropped. We had loads of time to defend that and we didn’t do it properly and you get punished for it.”last_img read more

SANTA BARBARA – After 90 minutes and 20 minutes of overtime, Cal State Northridge and host UC Santa Barbara settled nothing. The highly anticipated Big West Conference showdown between the rival programs finished deadlocked 2-2 after two overtimes. But there was plenty of action to keep the 2,217 in attendance at Harder Stadium interested from the opening whistle. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 CSUN opened the scoring in the sixth minute when Canel and Sean Franklin worked well down the right sideline bringing the ball up field. Franklin sent a cross in to the penalty box, Willy Sims touched a pass to Paladini, who gained control and beat Renish with a low shot to the far post. The physical play began shortly after the score, and CSUN ended up losing Sims – its leading scorer – for the game after he was injured in the eighth minute. The teams combined for 22 fouls and two yellow cards in the 45 minutes. Trailing 1-0 entering the second half, UCSB tied the game when Byrne sent a free kick in the direction of Jeff Murphy, who headed in the equalizer in the 48th minute. Sean Ceglinsky, (818) 713-3607 center_img CSUN (6-2-2, 2-0-1 Big West) took the lead in the 64th minute. Daniel Paladini took a free kick, sending a curling ball into the penalty area. Alec De Mattos fended off two defenders, redirected the pass to Ryan Roffi, who scored past Gauchos goalkeeper Kyle Renish to give the Matadors a 2-1 advantage. The Gauchos (6-2-2, 3-0-1), ranked No. 14 in the most recent College Soccer News poll, answered when Bryan Byrne scored on a penalty kick with less than four minutes remaining in regulation. Then Renish came up with perhaps the biggest play of the game.

Louisiana comes to Hollywood

first_img But The Walt Disney Co, for example, has agreed to delay the start of production on the films “Deja Vu” and “The Guardian” in order to stick with their Louisiana locations. Greg Hernandez, (818) 713-3758 greg.hernandez@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Members of a Louisiana delegation, on a three-day swing through Los Angeles this week, announced Friday that they have already landed more than $200 million in post-Katrina film and television projects for their state in 2006. The trip coincided with the American Film Market in Santa Monica and gave the delegation a chance to meet this week with executives at Warner Bros., Sony, Disney, NBC Universal, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, Showtime cable channel, Lifetime television and Black Entertainment Television. Delegation members also had meetings with independent producers and film financiers. The Louisiana group included Sen. Jay Dardenne, R-Baton Rouge; Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden, D-Baton Rouge; and Baton Rouge Area Convention and Visitors Bureau President/CEO Paul Arrigo. “We had productive discussions with studio executives and producers who are extremely interested in the greater Baton Rouge area,” Dardenne said. “Recognizing the post-hurricane growth of our area, the film and television industry expressed a continuing commitment to projects in South Louisiana. Our aggressive tax incentives program is a magnet for those who invest in these projects.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Among the projects to be shot in Louisiana next year are a slate of films from Spice Factory/Cameo FJ Entertainment including “Winter Heat,” “Miamiland” and “My Funny Valentine.” Also on tap is “Banner Days” from V Entertainment Group, which also plans to shoot a television pilot and a murder mystery feature film in greater Baton Rouge. “We are very excited about the substantial new productions coming to the area as a result of the delegation’s trip and are pleased to support the efforts of the city and state,” said Chris Stelly, economic development manager of the Governor’s Office of Film and Television Development in Louisiana. Louisiana has become serious competition to the Southern California movie industry with a growing number of projects being lured south by generous tax incentives and a rapidly growing production infrastructure. The biopic “Ray,” the comedy “Dukes of Hazzard” and the mystery “Skeleton Key” were among the 2005 releases shot in the state, and next year’s “All the King’s Men” starring Sean Penn was also filmed there. The hurricane initially appeared to have jeopardized the state’s ambitious plans to become something of a Hollywood South since several major studio films had to be halted in midproduction after Katrina. last_img read more

R90m fund for black South African filmmakers

first_imgThe Emerging Black Filmmakers Fund launched on Monday, which benefits films that have been directed and produced by black South Africans.The South African film Tsotsi won an Oscar for best foreign language film in 2005. It’s one of the films that the The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), invested in through its film and television production incentive scheme. (Image: TVGuide.com)Brand South Africa reporterHelp is at hand for emerging black South African filmmakers trying to break into the industry, in the form of a new, R90-million fund launched on Monday by the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), the Department of Trade and Industry and the National Film and Video Foundation.Over the next three years, the Emerging Black Filmmakers Fund will bankroll the full R5-million production and marketing budget of six qualifying feature films a year – with R4.5-million earmarked for development and production, and R500 000 for marketing.To qualify, a film has to be directed and produced by black South Africans, meaning that a black producer must own at least 51% of the production company behind the movie.“We have identified a growing need to support the production of South African films and documentaries, particularly by black filmmakers and producers,” the IDC’s head of media and motion pictures, Basil Ford, said in a statement.National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) chief executive Zama Nkosi said this partnership aimed to address past imbalances in South Africa’s film industry. “Creating this opportunity will benefit our industry immensely, as content is key in elevating our industry, and as we take the sector to another level of attracting new markets and investments,” Nkosi said.According to a study published by the NFVF last year, the film sector contributes R3.5-billion to South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP), while providing employment for more than 25 000 people.The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), through its film and television production incentive scheme, has invested more than R500-million in over 50 local films in just over a decade.These include Tsotsi, which won an Oscar for best foreign language film in 2005, and the acclaimed film adaptation of Nelson Mandela’s biography, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
