Favorite Location Shoots

New York Times
When This Stranger Knocks, It’s Thrilling
March 15, 2013

Paul Kostick, a New Yorker by way of Colorado (where he studied acting and directing) and Seattle (where he began his career in 1992 working for Tom Hanks) has seen the inside of more of the city’s homes than most New Yorkers.

As a location scout, location manager and producer, Mr. Kostick, who lives in the East Village with his wife and two children, has spent nearly two decades checking out every possible locale, including countless houses and apartments, largely in the five boroughs, to see if they qualify for star turns in movies, television shows, commercials and videos.

Q How would you describe what you do?

A It’s like detective work. You’re always trying to find a one-of-a-kind place, one that no one has ever seen before. But the location also has to work from a technical point of view. And it has to please a lot of people — the client, the production designer, the art team and most of all the director. Read More

Bringing New York’s Notorious BathHouse To The Screen

The Hollywood Reporter
SXSW: ‘Continental’ Director Malcolm Ingram on ‘Gay Fatigue,’ Bette Midler and His Fallout With Kevin Smith
March 15, 2013

t8m3oae7qgugo3et

With so much already written and filmed about gay social history, it’s surprising that it took nearly 40 years since its closing for a feature documentary on New York’s Continental Baths.

The legendary gay bathhouse, founded in 1968 by eccentric businessman and opera singer Steve Ostrow, was the heart of hedonism and a safe haven for gay men during the tumultuous 1970s. It launched New York’s notorious bathhouse scene that eventually fell silent with the rise of AIDS in the 1980s.

For filmmaker Malcolm Ingram, who was just hitting puberty and coming to terms with his own sexuality by the time AIDS plagued the gay community, the history of the bathhouse was a story that needed to finally be told.

After finishing two features (Drawing Flies, Tail Lights Fade), both executive produced by Kevin Smith, Ingram made the switch to documentaries focused on niche segments of the gay community. His first, Small Town Gay Bar, explored the risks of being gay in small Southern towns in the United States. His follow-up, Bear Nation, introduced viewers to the lifestyle of gay men of the stocky and hairy persuasion. Read More

I’ve Still Got My Health by Bette Midler

I’m always a flop at a top-notch affair,
but I’ve still got my health, so what do I care?
My best friend, alas, is a glass solitaire,
but I still got my health, so what do I care?

By fashion and foppery, I’m never discussed.
Attending the opry, my box would be a bust.
I never shall have that Park Avenue air,
but I’m in such health, why should I care?

The hip that I shake doesn’t make people stare,
but I got such health, what do I care?
The sight of my props never stops a thoroughfare,
but I still got my health, so what do I care? Read More
