Lights, camera, action!

Desert Magazine’s Hollywood issue arrives Sunday.

We are on the scene this month bringing you an exclusive interview with Matthew McConaughey by Bruce Fessier on the real-life character the actor plays in “Dallas Buyers Club” — a performance, Bruce says, that gives McConaughey (who will be feted at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 4) a virtual lock on an Oscar nomination.

We also bring you a preview of some of the documentaries and the foreign language Oscar contenders that will be screening at the film festival, a pick-list of local industry pros who are making it easier for production companies to shoot on location in our valley, and my interview with photographer of Hollywood legends, Michael Childers. The full interview was conducted on camera; we’ll keep you posted on the screening and airdates.

It’s a wrap! Production team (back row, left to right): Javier Ponce, assistant; Larry Pedersen, cinematographer/steady cam operator; Gene Jenkins, cinematographer; Leanna Bonamici, CV Studios Entertainment; Judy Twine, hair and make-up artist; Mike Pedersen, technical director. Front row: Michael Childers; Mary Silverman (Marilyn Chung, The Desert Sun)
