Four For Friday - A Twist

Last night, Julie Plec, who co-created The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies asked for some help with a mystery she has been trying to solve for years. I told her that you could probably figure it out in an hour.

Here is the situation.

The director of photography (DP) for the pilot episode of Felicity did an amazing job. It is far and above what you would normally see shot for television, and certainly better than a pilot being produced for a newborn struggling almost network could afford. The DP listed in the credits never shot anything prior to or after that episode. The name they used is also a Stephen King alias. Who is the person who shot it? There were some things put out there in a timeline, but they don't really ring true.

Here is the link to the timeline with some of those thoughts, but still no answers.

Probably someone who was banging Keri Russell and did her the favor?

Bryan Singer?
maybe a young male cast member was the motivation (Scott Speedman/?)

sandybrook said...

welp that timeline sure was helpful.🙄 I cant find anything but cinematography of the pilots cast and crew and that name is Richard Fannin, with no other credits, so I've got no leads for you dearie.😥

Tricia13 said...

sounds like it was maybe an actual Director, posing as a DP? But its too vague

MDAnderson said...

Ron Howard produced felicity with jj abrams. Maybe him

sandybrook said...

The only Stephen King alias I know is Richard Bachmann, cant find that one on IMDB

purpleiris said...

Steven Spielberg

Uhhhh... said...

I was thinking JJ Abrams, and then I actually saw his name as a creator so nevermind?

E said...

Isn't Richard Fannin a character alias for Randall Flagg? It was in one of his books; maybe Enty meant alias of SK's arguably most famous recurring character?

Spider Rico said...

Doesn't matter. The whole industry is about to implode with a scandal that will make the Weisntein fiasco look like a girls scout cookie theft. Fact.

Thia said...

What do you mean, @Spider Rico?

sandybrook said...

Very good E! You are correct

Do Not Lie said...

Yep Spider, long overdue and an implosion like the world has never experienced before.

sandybrook said...

Maybe it was Richard Primes who actually took over after Fannin. He had extremely extensive credits going back 20 years before he did his Felicitys. Maybe he used the alias first because of the uncertainty of doing a pilot for a tiny network?

Frank Darabont

J said...

Tricia13 said...

great memories growing up to that song in my house.Also the main song in Once Around /an Aiello film I love.
Girl is Angelic

PhillyWilly said...

yes, Tricia. once around was a terrific "heartstrings" movie. Huge frank fan. I just happened to be in Vegas when he passed and be there when they turned all the lights down on the Strip. Fun fun fun.
Spider, we want the tea, what have you heard? be specific.
Great screen name btw. I love that fucking scene.

"I did good last night, mick."
Oh, yeah, who'd ya fight.
"spider rico."
(chuckling) Oooo, hes a bum.
"You think everyone I fight's a bum."
WELL, AINT THEY!!!!!

LOLOL

Troy Dyer said...

Felicity is such a great show and I rewatched it again recently and it still holds up well.
My first thought was JJ since he created it and also wrote the theme song for seasons 3 and 4

Tricia13 said...

Love that you were in Vegas when Frank passed.Saw him once there when I was super young. Elvis too, but I preferred FS.A NY thang (even though hes the boy from Hoboken lol)

Vita said...

No sure on the blind, but I thought a young JJ, in a precursor to all of the hidden clues, etc, on Lost.

J-- thank you for that link, it's a gem! She's such talented doll. Love it!😍

SpiderRico-- What are you hinting at!?!?!

Four for Friday?
That's only one!

Rosie riveter said...

He means he has no clue.
It's hope. Different from facts.

Colonel Blake said...

I'm afraid to click on a link from J.

Me said...

J.J. Abrams. The lead in Felicity, Keri Russel, was also in J.J.s last Star Wars movie.
J.J. also is credited with directing the 1st & 2nd episodes of the 2nd season of Felicity.

Barry Sonnenfeld? Worked with Rob Reiner on Misery based on Steven King adaptation directed by Rob Reiner, a founder of Castle Rock. Also read that Barry and JJ Abrams met early on in the business. By the time Felicity came out, Sonnenfeld was taking a break from the industry, so maybe he just did Abrams a favor and wanted to remain anonymous.

AussieBlogger said...

Spider is hinting about the fact that many warrants have been issued on many celebs.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Ellen, Madonna, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and no one knows wbere Oprah is.

I'm guessing this is another reason why CEOs like Musk are in hiding or have bailed on their positions.

Convenient so many CEOs have stepped down right when the private banks are folding.
Convenient the Elites need to be in lockdown right now too.

GrislyAddams said...

This has to be what was meant, but that doesn't help (me) at all.

It's even a rather obscure Randall Flagg reference. Apparently from the Wastelands, but I don't remember that. Quarantine reading list addition, I guess.

modsquad said...

My guess is Janusz Kamiński.

Tiger said...

That was a beautiful song J- thanks for sharing. What a little darling she is.

Sunkist said...

J and Tricia:

Here she is on "I Wish You Love" I've been sharing this all week!
