So You Want to Make an Action Movie

Original image

The internet is full of flowcharts. But a lot of them are designed for strictly ridiculous or ironic purposes. Now, finally there's a series of flowcharts that instruct readers on how to do something highly achievable: becoming a successful filmmaker.

OK, maybe it’s not the easiest or most practical pursuit. But if you’re going to venture into the cutthroat world of cinema, you might as well have some guidance. That’s why Canal+ created a series of humorous and highly-detailed process flow that cover a variety of genre pictures.

Want to produce a family-friendly animated film? You’re all set.

More of a slasher film guy? Read up and get hacking.

Breakneck action films are more your speed? Yippee-kayay mental_flosser.

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
