An interview with the talented and powerful French actress, Thais Kirby.

Every now and then an actress will capture audiences hearts and become an instant success with her work. The beautiful and talented Thais Kirby is one of them. We recently spoke to her about her upcoming projects and most favorite roles to play. Here is what she had to say:

Please introduce yourself to the readers and how and when did you first get into performing?

My name is Thaïs Kirby. I am French and was born in Paris. I am an actress currently living in NYC. I got into performing because when I was a child, my mother played music and had a passion for it. I also was surrounded with people who were musicians so it was natural that I asked my mother to take music classes. I started with learning music theory when I was 6, in a very classic school and a year after, I started violin. I then went to another music school that was a little less conservative. Then, a couple of years later, I saw a jazz performance. I was really impressed by the people that were in the band, they were pretty cool. So, I started to take saxophone lessons. This conservatory school also offered acting and singing classes. Little by little, I signed up for all those classes and ended up spending hours there, almost every day, after my days at secondary school and high school. At around 16 years old, I decided that theater was what I loved the most and what I wanted to do as a living and that’s when the real journey began…

Who were some of your biggest inspirations?
A lot of the people that I met in my life, either my friends, my teachers, my close ones or people who just crossed my path for a certain period of time, inspired me to keep working harder and stay humble towards the craft.

What kind of training have you had, if any?

I received music and acting training from my childhood. After high school, I went to acting schools in Paris that offered a more professional training. There, I deepened my improvisation skills as well. I acquired classical training by working on plays written by Molière, Racine, Marivaux, Corneille and Shakespeare. However, it’s only when I came to NYC to do the Two Year Conservatory Program at The Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute, I felt that I started to understand something about acting. Here, I was trained by amazing teachers that were very supportive as well, but also demanding. For two years, I would be on stage almost every day and took advantage of the chance that I had to be trained in such an amazing school and took as many risks and worked as hard as possible.

What has been your favorite role to play so far?

I just finished shooting a short film directed by Stephanie Bollag. I was playing an Orthodox Jewish woman who leaves her husband for one day and confronts herself to a world she doesn’t know. It was an amazing experience and for the first time in my life, I felt I wasn’t type-cast but chosen based upon my acting skills, exclusively.
What has been one of your biggest achievements in your career so far?
I am very happy that throughout my ‘acting journey’, I kept challenging myself and going beyond my limits. This is an endless process and I wouldn’t speak in terms of achievements but more about challenges to take on that make you grow. Coming to New York, learning English (which I didn’t speak before) and a year and a half later getting a role as Yelena in Uncle Vanya by Chekhov was a pretty big challenge that I learned a lot from.

What projects do you have coming up?

I will be in San Francisco for a short film directed by Sebastian Sdaigui.

Who would be your ideal co-star and why?

I would love to work on a project with my friend and actress Mathilde Dehaye. We met in acting school and produced a play together a few months ago in New York. She is a great actress and I love working with her, exploring scenes and characters. She makes it challenging and very creative. Also, is it cheesy to say Angelina Jolie? She is a very powerful woman, working with her would be very exciting.
What are your plans for the future?
When I am finished with the shooting in San Francisco, I’d like to able to finish the play I started writing a year ago. And then… The next step will be defined by where I am and who I meet.

What is your advice to aspiring performers?

Work hard, Challenge yourself, Have fun :)

An interview with London’s Azi Rahman about his successful career in film editing.

Azi Rahman

Award-winning editor Azi Rahman has proven himself as a diversely talented editor who is capable of bringing captivating stories to the screen through the magic of his edit. Originally from London, Rahman has catapulted himself to the top of the industry as an editor through his work on the films Drake, American Dreams, Viral, Sin and many others, as well as the television shows Christie and British Andy.

His ability to take hours of footage and seamlessly sew them together into an engaging end product that perfectly fits the director’s overall vision for the story has led him to be headhunted by production companies including Alive Entertainment and Next Stop Media.

Rahman’s talents also extend to the commercial industry — in fact, one of his recent accomplishments as the editor of Target’s “Gift for Revenge” campaign, made on collaboration with the highly popular television series Revenge, was dubbed as the “future of advertising” by Hollywood.com.

Additionally, Rahman has edited commercials for lingerie company Soft Paris, Bomberg Watches, Mason House, DecorumLYD, Blue Colla Media, NYE Timber, Defected Record, Spring Studios and many more.
To find out more about this exceptionally talented editor, make sure to check out our interview below.

Please introduce yourself to the readers:

I’m Azi Rahman, an editor from London. I specialize in editing promos and commercials and I am now transitioning to feature films and TV shows.

How and when did you first get into editing?

My media studies teacher gave me a video camera for a school project we had to create a film and edit in camera. We had to think about the shot ahead of time and think how the next shot will work in context with the previous one. It showed me the power of editing and how the best editing is when you don’t notice it. It’s a very subjective medium and every project is different and comes with its own challenge. As an editor you are one of the final stages of the jigsaw. It’s your responsibility to put what the director/producer has in his vision onto the screen. That’s the most satisfying for me as an editor, watching a story come together and evolving and along the way coming up with creative solutions to any problems.

Who were some of your biggest inspirations in the entertainment world?

I think filmmakers who embraced editing as a form to tell stories really inspires me. Working with directors and producers who are open to a creative way to tell a story is something that excites me. With this said, I would say Martin Scorcese, Quentin Tarantino and Darren Aronovsky are not only guys who make really successful films, but they are auteurs which is rare mix in the current climate.

What has been your favorite production to be part of so far?

Probably my most interesting job so far was the commercial I edited Target “A Gift Of Revenge” simply because it was a new and innovative way editing a commercial. It was edited like a typical scene from the show but show consisted heavily of products from Target. Effectively it was a collaboration between Target, Neiman Marcus, ABC, the CFDA and Spring Studios to create five 3 minute minisodes of the Gift of Revenge all featuring gifts from the Target Neiman Marcus holiday collection which revealed an important plot point in Revenge Series 2. These episodes were broadcast during the mid-season finale of season 2 during every commercial break of that episode. The gift to the audience was an ad free episode where the only advertisement was the branded content. During the live broadcast links to even more exclusive content were tweeted for the audience. The Hollywood Reporter described this campaign as “the future of television advertising”

What has been one of your biggest achievements in your career so far?

I guess winning the best foreign film at the action on film festival for “Drake” a short film I edited. Although it was a short, it had such a cross genre element to it so it called upon my experience in drama, commercials and music videos to really bringing it to life. I had edited an action fight scene with limited rushes and to hear it get special praise at the award ceremony was really satisfying. It also helped elevate the fledgling “Fight Me Productions” to be in the book of “Top 100 Independent Filmmaking Companies in the World”.

What projects do you have coming up?

In terms of drama I have just finished editing a comedy pilot “British Andy” about a relocation company that helps celebrities from the UK to relocate from LA. It was real fun to do. We had Beppe and Janine from Eastenders and some other soapstars playing an exaggerated version of themselves. The producers have currently sold it to Banca Studios and are currently in talks to ITV2 to turn it into a whole series, so once that starts shooting, I’ll be editing a whole TV series. I edited it remotely from London with the producer in America which was an interesting experience. They had a lot of trust in me due to my experience in editing comedy and I think we have a really funny show on our hands. I can’t wait to see it on TV!

Who would be the director, you would most like to work with?

It has to be Martin Scorcese. I grew up watching his films. He is a masterful story teller. He uses all elements to really drive a story. I would love to sit in an editing booth with him.

What are your plans for the future?

To edit amazing feature films and TV shows.

What is your advice to aspiring editors?

Learn keyboard shortcuts! Don’t turn down work. Build relationships. And don’t forget to shower. Your clients/directors/producers will be sitting next to you, so goodbye to your personal space!
