The HTD Express: #15 - Aspects Of Entertainment: An Interview With Ron Greenfield



Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"This week on the Handsome Timmy D Express I am privileged to welcome Ron Greenfield, one of the most experienced and distinguished guests to appear so far.  Ron started his career as a film graphic artist, producing and designing trailers for  such critical and commercial hits like Star Trek, Arthur, Reds,  Raiders Of The Lost Ark and Victor, Victoria.  He then switched direction and went to work for CBS/Fox, as the Creative Director, when home entertainment was first beginning to make an impact as he created the campaigns that kept an entire generation of kids on pins and needles, promoting the Star Wars trilogy when they were first introduced on videocassette.

In Los Angeles, Ron served as the Senior Director of Creative Services for the legendary Republic Pictures. From there he went onto become an award winning Vice President (Marketing and Creative Services) for the well-known, Hollywood icon, Aaron Spelling (Charlie’s Angels, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Dynasty, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place).   He also worked as Chief Marketing Officer for the firm of Software Magic, where he helped develop gaming concepts with Electronic Arts, Atari, Activision, Dreamworks Interactive, Mattel, and Lucas Arts.

Today Ron endeavors to share his knowledge and experience with people learning their way in this business. His website,, as well as his two books are invaluable reads to anyone wanting to understand the in’s and out’s of the entertainment industry. Perspectives on Entertainment, is available on and there is a FREE DOWNLOAD of his other book, A Sneak Peek Behind The Curtain of the Entertainment Industry, on his website.

I was delighted that Ron took time out from his busy schedule to talk with me about the creative life and how that works in conjunction with the business side of Hollywood.  Ron brings a lot of wisdom to this interview and I’m sure you’ll enjoy our talk, as I did."

News: Rebels premieres,

It's another big week of TV, including the premiere of Disney's first Star Wars series.

Yes, this week we finally get a full hour of Star Wars Rebels, and we can't wait to see how the Rebellion ignites.

Movie News: More Batman v Superman pics suggest anti-Superman movement.

More photos from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice seem to indicate that humanity is not happy at all with the man from Krypton.

Comic Book Movie has posted a new batch of images -- taken by a Detroit resident named Tim Reinman, who also snapped some photos of what could be Wayne Manor in the movie -- showing what appears to be a demonstration held against Superman (Henry Cavill). Signs bearing slogans like "Super Death" and "Thanks for the 'help'" (the latter with flames underneath it) seem to indicate that there is a lot of ill will toward Kal-El for the carnage caused by his titanic battle with the minions of Zod in Man of Steel. Apparently some extras have been spotted wearing "Superman Survivor" shirts as well. They're even burning a Superman dummy in effigy!

Movie News: Justin Bieber lends his voice as Knight Rider talking car KITT in new comedy flick with David Hasselhoff

He called me and asked me for a favor and I called him back and said, "Can you do me a favour?" and he said, "Yes,"' David told Yahoo.

'I did his favor first because I love the Bieb. I think he’s a cool kid and he gets a bad rap. He’s a good guy and I like his music, I’ve known him for five years.'

Killing Hasselhoff is being directed by Darren (Diary Of A Mad Black Woman) Grant and follows a guy who tries to win a celebrity death pool by hiring a hit man to kill David Hasselhoff.

Besides Hasselhoff himself, Jim Jeffries and Jon Lovitz are attached to star.

Justin was spotted taking a joyride with the Hoff in the iconic Pontiac Trans Am in Venice Beach, California on Tuesday.

Bieber impressed co-star Ken Jeong, who chimed in: 'Justin couldn’t have been more kind or accommodating. He was just so generous with his time, and nailed the scene.'

The Baby singer wore a black T-shirt as David was seen channeling his former character Michael Knight wearing a leather jacket and aviator sunglasses.

The pair smiled and laughed as they worked.

David also sported his trademark tan and dark hair hardly changed from his days as Michael Knight in the hit '80s show.

Justin, who was born in 1994, wasn't even alive when the show first aired in 1982, but has no doubt caught repeats of the popular hit.

Trek News: Shatner: JJ Abrams Called About Possible Star Trek 2016 Role – Would Be Delighted To Do It

Today at Nashville Comic Con, William Shatner revealed that he has spoken to JJ Abrams [who is producing the next Star Trek movie] about how there "might" be "an idea" for him to play a part. We have full transcript of Shatner’s comments and video below.

Shatner: JJ Called me about Star Trek 2016 – There ‘might’ be a part

Today at his panel at Nashville Wizard World Comic Con, William Shatner talked about the recent rumor about a role for him in the 2016 Star Trek movie. It started when he was asked a question which wasn’t actually directly related to the rumor, but only if he had any interest in reprising the role of Kirk. Here is Shatner’s full answer:

Shatner Asked To ‘Keep Quiet’ About Star Trek 2016+ Orci Says Role Must Be ‘Worthy

Over the weekend William Shatner confirmed he had been contacted by JJ Abrams about how there "might" be a role for him in the 2016 Star Trek movie. Today Shatner has revealed that he has been contacted again and told to stop talking about Star Trek. Details on that below, plus how the media is covering Bill’s weekend revelation, and there are some new comments from Orci here at TrekMovie and Bill and Orci are also tweeting to each other.

Here’s my dilemma, I was cautioned not to speak about this and the next day it was out all over Twitter. ‘So I talked about it and then I get another phone call telling me to keep quiet again! All I can say is that I’m very excited about the film."

Orci: Role must ‘be worthy’

The director of the upcoming Star Trek movie Roberto Orci has again engaged fans here at and has dropped a couple of interesting comments about Bill over the last day. First was this exchange…

Ralph Pinheiro – September 28, 2014

If it is true, I hope it was a very good idea and as Shatner said: “If it is meaningful”.

I don´t want Bill or Nimoy coming back just with a good idea for sweep.

While the intention is good, It could potentially wreck everything.


boborci – September 28, 2014

[@Ralph Pinheiro]. exactly.

I would never waste my hero’s time. Must be worthy of them if you’re gonna go for it.

Great Dr. Who Quotes

1. “Through crimson stars and silent stars and tumbling nebulas like oceans set on fire; through empires of glass and civilizations of pure thought, and a whole, terrible, wonderful universe of impossibilities. You see these eyes? They’re old eyes. And one thing I can tell you, Alex… Monsters are real.” – The Doctor  (Smith)

2. “It’s like when you’re a kid. The first time they tell you that the world’s turning and you just can’t quite believe it ’cause everything looks like it’s standing still… I can feel it: the turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at 1,000 miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour, and I can feel it. We’re falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go… That’s who I am.” – The Doctor ( Eccleson)

3. When you wake up… I’ll be a story in your head. But that’s okay. We’re all stories, in the end… just make it a good one, eh? Because it was. It was the best.” – The Doctor (Smith)

4. People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.  (Tenant)

5. Oh, how to explain the mechanics of the infinite temporal flux? I know: Back to the Future. It’s like Back to the Future. (Tenant)

Cyborgs - A Bionic Podcast: "The Blue Flash"


Steve goes undercover as a longshoreman to help a fellow O.S.I. agent recover stolen microchips.  He's equipped with a new sensor device that will cause a "blue flash" in his bionic eye when he passes his hand over the microchips.  The death of his partner only makes Steve more determined to get the stolen goods recovered and the culprits caught.  A wrinkle in all this though is the woman who runs the boarding house he stays at and her son, Ernie (Rodney Allen Rippy).  She has been captured by the smugglers and her life is in danger.  Can Steve rescue her and fix Ernie's bike in time?

The Chronic Rift Spotlight: Graeme Harper


Krissy Myers returns to host this Spotlight episode where she had the opportunity to sit in on a chat with British television director Graeme Harper.  While best known for his work on the Doctor Who series, Harper is known for a number of other British television shows which he talks about in this episode.

Graeme Harper was originally a child actor, appearing in adaptations of "The Silver Sword" and "The Pickwick Papers" amongst other productions, before becoming a floor assistant at the BBC in 1965 and then an assistant floor manager in 1969. He worked on the Doctor Who adventures "Colony in Space," "Planet of the Daleks," "Planet of the Daleks" and "Planet of the Spiders" during the Jon Pertwee years, and "The Seeds of Doom" and "Warriors' Gate" in the Tom Baker era. In 1980 Harper started on the BBC's director's course. "The Caves of Androzani" was the first job he got as a freelance director after working on "Angels" for Julia Smith. Harper went on to direct one further Doctor Who story, "Revelations of the Daleks," and was also to have directed the third story in the abandoned season twenty-three which would have been either Philip Martin's "Mission to Magnus" or Robert Holmes's "Yellow Fever and How to Cure It." Harper went on to work on shows such as "District Nurse," "Hope and Glory," "Star Cops," "Boon," "The House of Windsor," "The Bill," "The House of Elliot" and "september Song" and is one of the industry's most sought after directors. In 1993 he was scheduled to direct "The Dark Dimension," an ultimately un-made thirtieth anniversary Doctor Who story.

Mighty Movie's Temple of Bad: A TALKING CAT!?!

(Right click the image to save this episode to your computer)

We have to be clear about this: There are bad movies; there are reprehensible movies; there are movies that make you consider taking out a contract on the entire DGA, just to be sure that never in the future of humankind will there be a chance that such an affront to common decency could again be committed. And then there are films that are a strangely exhilarating kind of awful, the kind that actually restore your faith in the perverse diversity of the human race, that re-instill your wonder in the awesome chaos of the universe, that, as the slogan for Temple of Bad has it, are truly a religious experience. Such a film is A TALKING CAT!?! A putative family comedy that isn’t funny (at least not in a deliberate way) and that would likely rupture any family unfortunate enough to be exposed to it, this film starts with the premise that people would listen to a cat that dispenses cryptic directives in the voice of Eric Roberts, and then throws such niceties as narrative coherence, plausible characterization, decent production values, and commonsense behavior out the window in its attempt to fill its scant eighty-five minutes with something that justifies its existence.

The Temple of Bad team of Andrea Lipinski, Orenthal V. Hawkins, Kevin Lauderdale and Dan Persons get together to try to puzzle out some method behind A TALKING CAT!?!’s madness (spoiler: they don’t succeed). Click on the player to hear the show.
