'Living In Bondage': Ramsey Nouah Pays Graphic Designer After She Called Him Out For Using Her Designs

Nigerian Actor and director Ramsey Nouah has reacted after being called out by a graphic designer for refusing to compensate her for work she did for the movie ‘Living in Bondage’ which Nouah directed.
Louisajlo @louisajlo accused Nouah of using the designs she made for the 2019 film without compensation or credit.
Nouah said he was not aware of the situation but he has now compensated her for her efforts:
 
“I thought she was paid because the guy who was supposed to pay her told us that he had done that not until when Kate contacted me, I am as surprised as some of you are about this but nevertheless she has been compensated accordingly.”
According to @louisajlo, she was contacted in 2018 to design graphics to be used in the film. She proceeded to work and also asked for a down payment which she was informed that
 
“I just accepted the job and started working straight away. The only thing I remember requesting was a down payment. But the then media director pleaded that the budget was yet to be approved but I shouldn’t worry. As soon as it is. He will avail me some funds towards my charge,” she tweeted.
She said she designed “majority of the graphics from scratch”, some of which included; a cult symbol, company logos, a blog page design, an Instagram page for Nnamdi, a photoshop of Nnamdi in Nysc uniform, custom license plates. Her design for the company logos was rejected but she kept on working in spite of not having received the down payment she requested for.
According to her, she was corresponding with the media director of the production, who was giving her the impression that Ramsey Nouah was busy and that her money would be paid. She later revealed that the media director was fired. And he told her that her designs had been rejected and would not be used in the film.
However, when she saw the film a few weeks ago and was shocked to see that some of her designs were used. And all her efforts to reach out to Nouah proved futile.
In her latest update @louisajlo said she has been contacted and compensated:
 
“I have been contacted and compensated. I really wanna thank everyone of you for your Retweets and support. Thanks a lot.”

Dates For The 2021 Sanremo Has Been Revealed

Dates For The 2021 Sanremo Has Been Revealed

Previously, we announced that the 2021 edition of Sanremo could not be held in February due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently , we reported it could be held a month later in March.

Now, according to reports, it has now been confirmed that the contest is due to take place from the 2nd to the 6th of March 2021. This news has been confirmed as new timetables have been released. It was announced during the announcement that Amadeus would continue collaborating with the festival.

Can Sanremo be used to pick the 2021 Eurovision Act of Italy?

Italy has yet to announce its participation in the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest. On the basis of the patterns, they usually do not officially confirm their participation in the competition later in the year (RAI confirmed their participation in the 2020 competition in October of last year).

As to whether or not the festival will again pick the 2021 Italian entry, this was not confirmed when the dates of the festival were revealed.

However, looking at past experiences of another national selection (Melodifestivalen in this case); Swedish national selections typically take place during the whole of February and the first two Saturdays of March.

It will also mean that a potential meeting of the Heads of Delegation will take place on 15 March 2021. That would then grant Italy an interval of one week if they wanted to use Sanremo to pick their entry.

However, the date of the meeting of the Heads of Delegation is still to be confirmed by the EBU.

Italy’s Eurovision Song Contest

Italy was one of the seven countries that participated in the inaugural Eurovision Song Contest in 1956. Italy achieved two third places in 1958 and 1963 before their first title. Italy’s first victory came in 1964 with Gigliola Cinquetti’s ‘Non ho l’età’ in 1964, which won the Copenhagen contest with 49 points.

In 1990, Toto Cutugno became Italy’s second and most recent “Insieme: 1992” winner. He won the contest with 149 points. Italy took part four more times in the 1990s, before taking part in the competition for a 13-year break from 1998 to 2010.

They returned to the competition in 2011 and have since finished in the top three on three occasions – 2nd in 2011, 3rd in 2015 and 2nd in 2019. Diodato was chosen to represent Italy in 2020 with “Fai rumore” until the competition was cancelled.

Halle Berry pulls out of transgender role following backlash

Auto Draft

Halle Berry has pulled out of a part in an upcoming film in which after facing online criticism she was expected to play a transgender woman.

In a live interview with Instagram on Friday, the actress said she hadn’t been officially cast for the part but was planning for it.

“[It’s] a story in which a woman is a trans-actor, so she’s a woman who has become a male. She is a character in a project I love to do, “Berry had said. She added she would like to take a “deep dive” into “that culture,” presumably referring to the trans community.

Berry faced online criticism, however, after the character was misgendered several times during the interview.

Others have said transgender community members should be allowed to play transgender roles.

She issued an apology on Monday night and pulled out of the position, saying “the transgender community will definitely have a chance to tell their own stories.”

She wrote: “I had the opportunity over the weekend to address my consideration of a potential role as a transgender man and I would like to apologize for those remarks.

“As a cisgender woman, I now understand that I should not have considered this role, and that the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories.

 

“I am grateful for the guidance and critical conversation over the past few days and will continue to listen, educate and learn from this mistake. I vow to be an ally in using my voice to promote better representation on-screen, both in front of and behind the camera.”

Halle Berry pulls out of transgender role following backlash

Halle Berry’s initial statement attracted the attention of the Netflix documentary’s Twitter page “Disclosure: Trans Lives on Film.” The show looks at Hollywood’s representation of transgender people and their stories.

The account of the documentary invited Halle Berry to watch the film in order to “understand how cis actors like yourself acting in trans roles have significant offscreen cultural repercussions.”

The account has thanked her for “listening and learning” after Berry ‘s apology.

The LGBTQ rights group GLAAD also replied by saying “We are grateful that Halle Berry has listened to and learned from transgender people’s concerns. Many influential individuals will do likewise. Watching ‘Disclosure’ to learn about trans media coverage is a good place to start.
