Rome’s legendary filmmaking hub is getting an update for the 21st century — and anchoring Italy’s plans to regain its role as a center for world-class global production.

The 50 Best Branded Content Partnerships of 2018

Variety's Easterseals "Abilities Unlimited" advertorial campaign made Pressboard's list of top brand partnerships for 2018. They called it "hard hitting" -- one of the best compliments they could have paid it, as far as I'm concerned. It was a labor of love for me (as editor) and for the entire Variety Content Studio.

Very proud of my team of writers, page designer Danielle Grimes, photographer Michael Buckner and the gang at Modus Operandi who designed the digital hub.

An incredible amount of branded content was created in 2018, so we highlighted our 50 favorite content campaigns that best exemplified our growing industry.

‘Eclipsed’ Set and Costume Designer on Bringing West Africa to Broadway

I've done a lot of stuff. I've seen my name onscreen as the writer of a "Star Trek" episode. I've held my published books. I've had cover stories and directed plays and won awards. But the single thing that gave me the greatest thrill was walking in the stage door of a Broadway theater and having the doorman say "Hi, David." So it's very exciting to me to finally get the Artisans video series to Broadway... sort of. The amazing Jenelle Riley hosted this interview with Tony-nominated designer Clint Ramos. Really great stuff.

Clint Ramos is nominated for a Tony Award for the costumes for “Eclipsed,” the Broadway play starring Lupita Nyong’o, and designed the play’s sets as well. Ramos joined Vari…
