Save Our Scripts is Open for Submissions

Tristan sounded slightly uncomfortable being called the ‘creator’ of this three-year-old programme, ‘It’s a bit of a funny title isn’t it?’ he laughed. But he did give birth to this particular programme that partners writers up with producers. Still in its infancy, Save Our Scripts (SOS) is however, demanding and gaining more attention.

Fire In The Blood (Dylan Mohan Gray Interview)

A patent is a good thing right? It protects a creator’s intellectual property.

TheRightFilm: Beautiful Creatures, This is 40, A Good day to Die Hard‏

Who says you have to choose just one film? Ok, last week we did, but why not watch all of this week’s offerings which include comedy, a little bit of fantasy and action?

Painting Big with Rowan Newton

Rowan says that most of his clients are female. Even though the illustrations, sketches and paintings, that are mainly of women, aren’t self portraits and the subjects are sometimes wearing little to nothing at all. ‘Women are the majority of my buyers and they’re more likely to buy an image of a body. Once a piece of art’s got a face to it, it’s almost as if it’s an image of a past girlfriend’, he reveals.

TheRightFilm: Hitchcock, NO, Dead Bodies, I Give it a Year

JP Cooper – Interview

TRC had the privilege of meeting up with highly talented JP Cooper. Check out this exclusive interview.

Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino will soon be delivering his latest offering to British cinemas, and after watching the trailer; it appears there isn’t going to be a massive change of direction for the award-winning director. ‘Django Unchained’ is both written and directed by Tarantino and as is usual for his films there is plenty of style, plenty of quirkiness, plenty of dark humour and of course, plenty of star names. Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and a cameo from Jonah

Hansel and Gretel

A potentially interesting take on a traditional fairytale, ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’ contemplates what happened to the brother and sister after they escaped from the witch with the confectionary house in the woods. Of course, they didn’t simply go on to lead normal and happy lives – would you if you were nearly eaten by a blind old witch? – They instead became bounty hunters, chasing witches all over the world. This film shows the siblings become involved in a situation much more dan

The Enemy Rock Glasgow

The Enemy are one of those bands that are best heard live. Since their 2007 debut album, ‘We’ll Live and Die in These Towns’, the band have consistently released great tunes but being at one of their gigs reminds you just how many anthems they actually have. The best thing about The Enemy is that they write songs with choruses you can easily sing along to, so even those not so familiar with their music wouldn’t feel left out when seeing them live.

Rain, rain, go away

The queue of less-than-eager-looking members of the public extended to the far corner of the exhibition entrance hall and wound around again. This wasn’t the H&M collaboration with luxury brand Maison Martin Margiela, this was actually for Random International’s installation entitled ‘Rain Room’, which had an average wait time of an hour and a half. But of course long queue times for this highly anticipated exhibition were to be expected, especially in the opening week.

Brandy’s New Album – ‘Two Eleven’

The 13 tracks on Two Eleven range from few up-tempo club-worthy mixes, as exciting as the lead track Put it Down featuring Chris Brown, to whiney gleam-free songs such asWildest Dreams, containing lyrics; ‘It seemed I had it all, that’s what they thought, but I was peeling like paint on the wall, had to cover up the hurt’. These lyrics will trigger off anyone with an inclination to press the next button.

Theatre Review: Celebrity Night at Cafe Red

This is literally a series of very amusing awkward moments occuring within the space of an hour.

Seye – Mexicana Bounce

NME call him Fela Kuti for the Rinse generation, but even when you get past the tacky props in an unimaginative video, I still don’t see or hear it.

Girl on Fire

Alicia Keys is a Girl On Fire – well according to her fifth studio album she is.

Into the Fast Lane with Benin City

Benin City’s new single ‘Accelerate’ may be a lot more in-your-face than the haunting first single ‘Baby’, but it wouldn’t be surprising if it receives a similar level of critical acclaim. Joshua Idehen once again takes the vocals, and the intensity of his voice combined with an array of instruments (including horns) makes for a fresh, exciting tune.

Hurricane – MS MR

MS MR are a somewhat enigmatic duo from New York City. Even in this modern technological world, where the internet ensures that almost nothing manages to remain a secret, little is known about this band. All I can tell you for sure is that they make haunting synthy pop music, that they like to hide behind their band name, furtively refusing to give away many details about themselves and that this month saw the release off their new single, ‘Hurricane’.

The Whore's Asylum

The name of this novel is a bit off-putting; I experienced side glances from fellow commuters when reading it on the train like some non-Kindle readers of ‘Fifty Shade of Grey’ may do. Surprisingly, however, ‘The Whores’ Asylum’ does not include any directly kinky scenes despite focusing on that taboo subject of Victorian Britain; prostitution.

Thunderbird

The first beat on ‘Thunderbird’ will make you sit up, listen and watch this Berlin resident. The attention-grabbing track is what club and radio DJs have been waiting for.

Femi is Not all Flash

If we were living in the 90s and functioning as a hip hop magazine, we might say ‘she tore it down’ or ‘raised the roof’, but we’re not, so we’ll have to be more creative when writing about the gifted wordsmith that is Femi Martin.

The Marriage Plot

‘The Marriage Plot’ illustrates a love triangle worthy of a Greek tragedy. The backdrop to the performance is Brown University, Rhode Island. It’s Graduation Day, Class of 1982.

ntroducing – JP Cooper

We bring good news and music to your ears. The discovery of JP Cooper has a certain TRC member going slightly gaga, but she can’t exactly be blamed. Why?

‘O – A Presidential Story’

This novel channels ‘Taken,’ ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Bad Boys’ in a fictional display of testosterone charged cop drama.

Interview: An Insight into Incisive

TheRightCopy finally got the chance to interview a creative Londoner that caught our attention way back.

Exclusive Interview with Roger Smith

‘What I’ve written is no love letter, I set out to write a bloody, amped-up page-turner, but I wanted it to be fuelled by the things that anger me about South Africa.’

The Crossing

You don’t have to be an ethnic minority who has struggled to arrive in Europe to feel a tightening in your chest when you watch the first scene of this play.

New Music: Submotion Orchestra – It’s Not Me It’s You

We’ve all been there right, wanted to say ‘It’s Not Me It’s You’, even if it was just for effect? Out May 7, this new track is taken from the seven-piece Submotion Orchestra’s forthcoming second album. It displays their signature fusion of bass, electro and live music and leaves you feeling like heading to the club.

D’Banj’s Oliver Twist Afro Beat Invasion

K Koke Volume II Roc Nation/Sony RCA

This is the Remix

So we’ve covered how and why you protect your work , but how can you make sure that when you get a bright idea you haven’t actually taken a large chunk of it from someone else’s Intellectual Property?

General Fiasco Gig

At first glance, it’s easy to mistake General Fiasco for a boyband. Not one of those 90s ballad-singing boybands but the slightly rougher noughties type who ‘actually play their own instruments’, but are too polished to be real rockstars.

Sounds From Nowheresville – The Ting Tings

Making this album wasn’t as easy as it sounds but after some time and a location change things started to click Jules says, ‘Every time Katie went up to the booth she was nailing it. The lyrics were happening. The whole weight of our shoulders was lifted. This was enjoyable again. It was being dictated by its own energy again.’

Call the Midwife – Jennifer Worth

‘Call the Midwife’ is not a book for the faint-hearted. Don’t let the cosy Sunday evening BBC adaptation lull you into a false sense of snug security. The number of occasions ‘forceps,’ ‘amniotic fluid’ and ‘mucus catheter’ are dropped into the narrative is enough to put you off your mug of cocoa.

Uncovering Lissie

Columbia described Lissie as straight-talking, TheRightCopy agrees, her no-nonsense attitude is refreshing and her interpretations of singles from Lady GaGa and Kid Kudi add something that only a talented singer can.

How to Be a Woman

Whether you are a young woman or an old man, or an old woman or a young man, or somewherein the middle, you must read Caitlin Moran’s ‘How To Be A Woman.’ Don’t be put off by the title,which implies this is a step-by-step guide to femininity, a bit like a recipe or one of those patronisingself-help books that claim to solve life issues in six easy steps. ‘How To Be A Woman’ is instead an autobiographical account of what it’s like to be a woman, making both social and trivial commentsabout the fe

The Penelopiad – Margaret Atwood

The Penelopiad offers a reimagining of The Odyssey, the iconic work of Homer that mothered Western literature as we know it. Published as part of the Canongate Myth Series, in which authors reworked traditional myths, Margaret Atwood’s Penelopiad offers a voice to Penelope, the faithful, abandoned and bereaved wife of Odysseus, the king of Ithaca, whose action-packed homecoming is the main subject of The Odyssey.

Sistah Souljah’s Meaning of Love

Sistah Souljah’s New York Times Bestseller ‘Midnight and The Meaning of Love’ proved at times, a very powerful compelling read.

Epic Win for Anonymous

This book rightfully reveals that trolls have evolved from those fantastical creatures created by Terry Pratchett. They’ve become internet savvy demons who trawl message boards and websites making useless comments that can funny (depends if you are on the receiving end). They spam inboxes and they’re basically the internet version of the clowns that give tourists the wrong direction on purpose.

The King, The Island, The Train, The House, The Ship

In three separate locations, Paul McCarthy fabricates a seedy spectacle in a pleasantly obscene return to the U.K.

Haunted Child

Award-winning playwright Joe Penhall’s Haunted Child takes us into the lives of a small family unit that consists of an engineer father who returns after weeks of living with, let’s be honest, a cult; a mother worried about the effect her absentee husband is having on her only child; and a child who is struggling to make sense of the tense situation within the house.

Dry and Flat or Full of Flavour?

Whenever ‘classic’ songs are messed with, the music community responds in one of two ways. For every envelope-pushing avant-garde innovator praising the creativity and new direction the music has been taken in, there’s a staunchly defiant member of rock & roll’s old guard, outraged that such a vintage gem of music has been disturbed from its resting place in the musical pantheon.

‘Pixel This’: A Phone

For me, an antiquated stickler to the magic of film photography, visiting Dan Shearman’s brainchild – an exhibition comprised entirely of the masterpieces captured on smartphones – was an experience accompanied by feelings of distrust, cynicism and perhaps even a dour stroke of envy.

Introducing Jess Mills

Jess Mills can only be described as a 21st century singing siren, no not the ones that you hear at the end of a night out in Shoreditch, but a siren which is preferably pronounced using a sexy French accent (see-ren), while rolling your rrrrrs.

The Slap

Firstly, there’s nothing like reading a good book, followed by watching a good film or television adaptation of said book. While good books are like Starbucks in America, good adaptations are like London buses in November; infrequent. Yes we’re saying that good adaptations rarely happen, but the producers of ‘The Slap’, currently showing on BBC 4 have managed to prove that it can happen by staying true to the bestselling novel first published in 2008.

Who is Kayosoul?

Kayosoul is leaving nothing to chance, he is here to take on the music industry in a big way and he’s using more than his singing skills to make sure that he gains attention.

The name on the lips of DJs right now is Yasmin – why? Because her single ’Light up the World’ out mid January is hugely catchy.

Willy Moon

We’ve discovered Willy Moon a charming young man who teamed up with his girlfriend to bring us his first video ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’. The video cost just £150, and as you can see their creativity stretched their money quite far.
