JoAnne Sellar English Actress

JoAnne Sellar

There is more to every movie than just the actors, directors or even writers. When we talk about producers, American-born producer JoAnne Sellar is a name much fancied. She works in collaboration with her husband, Daniel Lupi and director Paul Thomas Anderson. They make a great team which could easily be displayed through the likes of their movies together, the biggest of all being ‘There will be blood’ narrating life of an oil-seeker named Daniel. The movie has won two awards ( one is AFI Academy Award and other online film and TV Association Award). In addition, it has received nine nominations in all. Other movies of the gang are ‘Inherent Voice’, ‘The Master’, ’Punk Drunk Love’, ‘Magnolia’ and ‘Boogie Nights’. It seems as if she treats her films like babies; first helping it come into picture, she also has a role in editing it and finally she looks forward that they reach great heights. Debuting with the sci-fi horror film, ‘Hardware’ she would have required a big heart even not a big pocket to start with this one. Directed by Richard Stanley in a 110 degree temperature, it was much ahead of its era. Apart from putting her money at stake, she has to go through rigorous hours of work pre-production. Starting with per-page discussion of scripts to selection of appropriate locations to suit your expectations and to test screenings, her work even continues after the production. Attending all those interviews and making her movie sound interesting is something she could do better than the rest. Only someone who believes in the work of the directors and most of all in his intuitions can do in the same fashion as hers. ‘ Oscar-nominated’ isn’t prefixed to her name out of anywhere. With a facilitator, she has to be the ‘watchers of the night’ sometimes and sometimes act like a ‘cool father’ that is, to watch everything from a distance and to play her cool till it is within her limits. Implying, Sellar gives her directors a scope for application of their creativity.

Joe started his career in San Francisco as a commercial and feature films production assistant after completing his degree in Public Communications at the Boston University. While at the job, he also ran lights for a comedy troupe, “The Pitschel Players”, along with booking movies for theaters. The improvised comedy group, “The Pitschel Players”, moved to San Francisco in 1974 and so did Roth. Here, he started producing their shows and began his journey to success. After two years of producing shows for the group, he released his first venture in 1976, “Tunnel Vision”. The movie did well at its release and grossed 17 million dollars. The movie was a parody of television shows with a star cast of the soon-to-be-famous comic stars Chevy Chase, Howard Hesseman, and Laraine Newman. Joe played a small acting role in the movie. After several low budget, but successfully produced flicks, Roth decided to try on another role, the director. His first directorial venture was the movie, “Streets of Gold”, released in 1988. This was followed by the movie, “Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise”, released a year later, and “Coupe de Ville” released in 1990. He went on to release six movies under his directorial wing over his career. In 1987, he co-founded the production company, “Morgan Creek Productions”, with partner Jim Robinson, and released various films like “Young Guns” and “Dead Ringers”, under the aegis of the company. In 1989, Roth joined office at the 20th Century Fox as the Chairman of the Theatrical Films division. He held the position till 1992 and chalked up some successful films. After resignation from Fox, Roth moved on to Disney and co-founded an independent film division with them, “Caravan Pictures”, with associate Roger Birnbaum, who started work effectively from January 1993. With productions like “Angels in the Outfield”, he led the company to new heights, with 18 movies grossing a total of 100 million dollars, domestically. Owing to his strong reputation, in September 1994, Joe was appointed the new Disney CEO, replacing Jeffery Katzenberg. As such, Joe Roth became the first ever director to hold the office of a CEO of a major film studio. Following his tenure at Disney, Roth founded yet another production company, “Revolution Pictures”, in 2000, with the help of funding from Sony Pictures. After announcing his resignation from Disney in January that year, he went on to produce and direct various films under the banner of “Revolution Pictures”. However, in April of 2006, he announced that “Revolution Pictures” would cease to exist after its 7-year contract with Sony, and Roth would move on to being a producer for Sony Pictures.
