How ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Choreographer Christopher Scott ‘Dances Through Life’
So You Think You Can Dance” choreographer Christopher Scott “dances through life” — and finds inspiration for his routines along the way.

The choreographer earned his third Emmy nomination this year for two of his routines on the longstanding Fox reality dance series, and explained in a recent interview with TheWrap that the inspiration for them often comes from real-life experiences, even if they’re a little unexpected.

In the nominated group routine “Prism,” Scott found inspiration in a particularly unlikely source: his friend’s dog, who was recently being trained to sit, stay and speak.

“I was having a moment watching this process and how proud he was [after he] got his dog to listen to him,” Scott said of his friend. “It made me think about how trained we are as human beings.

Interview with Takuya Fukushima: I think my film is not similar to any Japanese film but it is similar to Haruki Murakami’s works

Takuya Fukushima was born on September 19, 1972 and he is a member of Directors Guild of Japan. He has been releasing numerous video works since 1992, when he was studying at the department of literature at Nagoya University. After working under Sogo Ishii (aka: Gakuryu Ishii), he established P-kraft which has been the base of his activities thereafter.

Fukushima directs TV programs, commercials, PVs and he is also highly rated as a film director both in Japan and overseas.

In 2016, a special screening titled Escape From This Fucking World/Takuya Fukushima’s Collection was held to commemorate the release of “Legacy Time”which was highly acclaimed.

Choreographer Christopher Scott on the ‘pressure cooker’ of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’: ‘I hold my breath every time’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Choreographer Christopher Scott on the ‘pressure cooker’ of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’: ‘I hold my breath every time’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“I hold my breath every single time I’m on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and there’s a routine going on,” says hip-hop choreographer Christopher Scott about working on the Fox reality competition series. “The executive producer calls me a pressure cooker because the pressure just gets so high.” This year the pressure paid off for Scott with his third Emmy nomination for Best Choreography. Watch our exclusive video interview with Scott above.

Scott is nominated for two routines he choreographed last summer for season 14 of the series: “Say You Won’t Let Go,” a duet between “Sytycd” all-star Allison Holker and contestant Logan Hernandez, and “Prism,” a conceptual group number that is “one of the hardest routines I’ve ever done on the show.” “Prism” was inspired by the idea of “being trained,” and how as human beings navigating the world we’re “much more trained then dogs ever will be.

Trailer Watch: Teen Bloggers Become Murderers in “Tragedy Girls”

Tragedy Girls

X-Men: Apocalypse’s” Alexandra Shipp and “Deadpool’s” Brianna Hildebrand leave the superhero world behind for a “Heathers”-esque take on the slasher genre in “Tragedy Girls.” A trailer has dropped for the dark comedy-horror film that earned strong reviews out of SXSW, where it made its world premiere back in March.

“Sometimes I just feel like nothing I do matters — like I’m not special,” Sadie (Hildebrand) tells her Bff McKayla (Shipp) in the spot. She later observes that McKayla has only received one retweet that day, and it came from her mom. Feeling invisible, the highschoolers decide to ask a social media star to give their blog a shout-out, and when he declines, describing their project as “off-brand” for his “15 million followers,” Sadie and McKayla decide to take action. The girls stab him to death. They aren’t particularly competent murderers — McKayla complains, “You’re just hitting bone, dude,” as Kayla aims for his heart — but they manage to get the job done, and their lives change overnight.

The murder is all their town can talk about, and the girls use the fear, anxiety, and excitement to their advantage. “Anybody could be next, even you,” McKayla tells a classmate. Sadie reassures the terrified girl by telling her, “You can find more information on our Tragedy Girls Twitter page.” To keep their social media followers — and to gain more — the girls become serial killers.

Shipp’s previous credits include “Straight Outta Compton,” Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” MTV’s “Awkward,” and the titular role in the Lifetime movie “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B.” Shipp portrayed Storm in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” a character made famous by Halle Berry.

Hildebrand is best known for playing Negasonic Teenage Warhead in “Deadpool,” a role she’ll reprise in “Deadpool 2.” “First Girl I Loved” and “Prism” are among her other credits.

Tragedy Girls” hits theaters October 20.

Shia Labeouf's TV sister weighs in on his shenanigans: 'This is not just some breakdown'

Shia Labeouf's TV sister weighs in on his shenanigans: 'This is not just some breakdown'
Need further proof that life imitates art? Try this: While troublemaker Shia Labeouf was releasing a series of plagiarized mea culpas in order to “apologize” for copying the work of artist Daniel Clowes, his former Even Stevens costar Christy Carlson Romano was busy doing something mature and responsible — that is, getting married to her longtime boyfriend at a Canadian castle. Classic Louis and Ren, am I right? (In case you’re not up on your ’00s Disney Channel sitcoms: LeBeouf’s Louis Stevens was “immature, rude, and selfish.” His older sister Ren, played by Romano, was “an intelligent, well-behaved perfectionist.
