TIFFANY LIMOS WIKIPEDIA CHANGES...

Someone (annoying person) on Wikipedia keeps changing my information even though my manager and lawyer have written to Wikipedia managers about it. Its still a work in progress because I've done so much work in Asia, Africa, and Europe over the last 2 years... here is a draft... but there is alot more to add. I took the footnotes out, but all this information is referenced and published. I will add the links later.

==Early life==

Tiffany Limos was born in Dallas, Texas. Limos grew up in Mesquite, Texas and was raised in a videostore.

She is of Filipina, Spanish, Hawaiian, French, African and Chinese descent. Her father grew up selling fruit on the street in the Philippines and her mother was from a wealthy Filipino family.

==Career==

At 16, Ms. Limos began modeling for the Ford agency and appeared in teen magazines like ''Sassy (magazine)|Sassy'' and ''YM (magazine)|YM''. She subsequently quit modeling and worked as a hostess at the Coffee Shop in Manhattan's Union Square (New York City)|Union Square. She worked at ''Visionaire'' and "V" magazine as a creative consultant at 19 years old in 1999. That same year Limos wrote a script for Larry Clark called ''American Girl From Texas'' that Clark has often cited as his dream project.

Limos made her acting debut in 2002 in the film ''Teenage Caveman'', a Quentin Tarantino favorite.

In 2003, Limos, 23, has written three scripts, Printed Matter based on her mentor Larry Clark,Tulsa based on Clark's book, and the third, An American Girl from Texas, is semi-autobiographical.

Also in 2003, Limos found and cast Larry Clark's film Wassup Rockers. Clark later shot Jonathan Velasquez the star of Wassup Rockers and Tiffany Limos for simultaneous covers of the French ''Rebel'' magazine.

In 2007, Limos, 27, was interviewed by Ruben V. Nepales, Head of the Hollywood Foreign Press on being honored at the Cinemanila Film Festival along-side her bestfriend and collaborator Quentin Tarantino by President Gloria Arroyo. Limos expressed mutual admiration with Tarantino for Filipino legends Cirio H. Santiago, Eddie Romero, and Gerry de Leon. Limos also tributed the Cannes Directors' Fortnight at the Cinemanila Film Festival, she honored her friend Olivier Pere the President of the Cannes Directors' Fortnight.

In 2008, Quentin Tarantino spoke about being introduced to legendary Filipino director Cirio H. Santiago by Limos. Tarantino expressed that he was a big fan of Santiago.

Larry Clark Alumna, actress and filmmaker, Limos In 2013 directed Academy Award Winning Director Michel Gondry for Nowness.com

Limos collaborated with Gondry for years. Had collaborated with him for a decade and helped him on such projects as The Block Party, The Science of Sleep, and produced a video for Kanye West called Heard'em Say.

Apprentice and worked for Larry Clark, Quentin Tarantino, Michel Gondry, Woody Allen, Spike Lee.

Throw back to Tarantino X Limos 2007

I found an old article about my trip to the Philippines with Quentin Tarantino (one of my bestfriends) and it was done by the Head of the Hollywood Foreign Press, Mr. Ruben Nepales... (a fellow Filipino). In this article you can read about my knowledge on Filipino cinema and Tarantino's same feelings. I do have a vast knowledge of Filipino cinema due to my father and mother... I will write more about that in detail in the future.... but this is a true find for all you CINEPHILES out there! READ ABOUT IT HERE -> -> -> TIFFANY LIMOS X QUENTIN TARANTINO 2007

MICHEL GONDRY DIRECTED BY TIFFANY LIMOS FOR NOWNESS.COM (LVMH LUXURY BRAND SITE)

ON MARCH 5TH 2013 NOWNESS.COM PUBLISHED MY SHORT CLIP ON MICHEL GONDRY ENTITLED "A CINEPHILE'S LABYRINTH"....

WE WORKED ON IT FOR MONTHS!

Michel Gondry: A Cinephile's Labyrinth

The Acclaimed Director Gives Us an Insider's Glimpse of His Favorite Video Store

Michel Gondry takes us on a tour of his local Parisian haunt in A Cinephile’s Labyrinth, a new work directed by Larry Clark alumna, actress and filmmaker Tiffany Limos. The Academy Award-winning director reminisces on time spent wandering the aisles of La Butte Video Club, the small VHS and DVD store to which he has made pilgrimages over the years. “I watched all the early Wim Wenders films from La Butte when I was preparing for The Science of Sleep,” says Gondry of this old school answer to Netflix. In his forthcoming L’Écume des Jours (Mood Indigo), the French auteur adapts Boris Vian’s 1947 cult novel of the same name—a satirical story of young love set in jazz-infused Paris. “I tried to avoid ‘Rive Gauche’ clichés,” he says of the upcoming feature, “but I used the music of Duke Ellington.” Similarly, La Butte is a relic of Paris’ past and one that continues to inspire—not just during the making of 2008’s homage to video, Be Kind Rewind, but in providing the director with regular interaction with other film lovers. “Out of all the directors I work with, Michel is the most fun,” muses Limos. “He makes me laugh out loud constantly.” Here Gondry reveals just how important his encounters in the video aisle have been to his acclaimed oeuvre.

Was the video store a big part of your early experience with film?

Michel Gondry: We had a video player at home since the early 80s so the video process was part of my adolescence. I used to shoot little sketches with my brothers and our friends. Sadly, I don’t think there are many places like La Butte left where I live in Brooklyn.

Do you ever think about whether your film will end up on the shelves of somewhere like La Butte when you are making it?

MG: Yes. In fact it’s one of the reasons why we as filmmakers have to define the genre that we want our film to belong to. We know that people will put them on specific shelves. It doesn’t make things easy when your genre is not well defined.

Have these films also influenced your collaborations with other artists, such as the musicians for whom you’ve made music videos?

MG: Yes, sure. I remember the first time I collaborated with Björk—we discussed all our favorite movies. We discovered that we had lots of favorite films in common. Like The Night of the Hunter (1955) for instance, which became an inspiration for the video for [her 1993 single] “Human Behaviour.”

Do you still watch films as much as you used to before you began making them?

MG: I don’t see them the same way. Unfortunately, I can’t take myself out of the equation. Most of the time I’m watching a movie, I’m thinking, “I could never achieve this!”

Your latest adaptation takes on a work of satire. Is it important to have a sense of humor in filmmaking today?

MG: Humor helps to swallow the harshness of life.

Boardwalk Empire Premiere


(click on photo to enlarge)

I went to see Michael Pitt at this premiere. Nelson George and I took this great photo at their photobooth! It was a wonderful night. Everyone was there. (Pharrell, Scorsese, Schrader, all the usual suspects) I do want to say that I've known Michael Pitt since we were teenagers and it was so great to see him on a series like Boardwalk Empire... CONGRATS!

The DDD Magazine Spread

(Updated March 14, 2014) I've known Larry Clark since the 90's. If you don't know about Mr. Clark then go do your homework. Clark inspired and influenced Scorsese, Coppola, Van Sant, and MANY MANY MANY artists in the world! Ingrid Sischy has said that Clark influenced the last 50 years of FASHION photography! (from Helmut Newton to Mario Sorrenti to Mario Testino to Nick Knight to Terry Richardson - they all claimed Larry Clark as their IDOL!) And for all you Photography GEEKS out there, you already know what I am talking about! For the CINEPHILES, the TRUE CINEPHILES you already know Clark is a GOD in cinema. For the FASHION HEADS, Clark influenced Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Raf Simons, and the list goes on... for MUSIC HEADS... Clark influenced Lou Reed, Keith Richards, Tyler the CREATOR, and MANY MANY OTHERS! Larry's art has been collected by some of the richest, most powerful, and influential people in the world! People have paid in the millions for Larry's photos and some of the photos Larry has taken of me go for at least 20k to 50k.

Please don't even try to talk to me about photography, cinema, music, and let alone Larry Clark if you haven't done your homework. I've studied photography history, cinema history, music history, art history... and I know what I am talking about here.

LARRY CLARK WILL GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE WORLD'S PIONEERS WHETHER YOU ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR NOT... (and some of you may be wondering why I am ranting about this or going on a tangent.. because I'm annoyed of people approaching me with stupid questions regarding Larry Clark when they have no clue about Larry's body of work and about Larry's status in world/international art! And I will challenge anyone of you in person about Larry Clark's work and where it stands in the world. TRY ME. You tell me what other artist made a seminal book at 21 years old call Tulsa and at 71 is still making movies that are winning top prizes at film festivals? Larry Clark's book Tulsa is one of the art pieces that changed the outlook on cinema, photography, art, and music forever... I challenge anyone else to tell me different. All the names I listed above have been influenced by Larry Clark and there are more names where that came from. All the cinematographers that were influenced by Larry Clark like Chris Doyle Mark Ping Bin Lee... and other legends in photography such as Nan Goldin... no one can touch Larry Clark... I know you want to hate on Larry, be my guest, and his body of work will stand on its own... and as Larry says, "The Legends will stand!"

Like I said... any of you morons who seriously think Larry ain't shit, well... ha ha ha... think again. Knowledge is power and I suggest you read up about him... but as Larry says... Haters need a damn job. :) If you have no clue about art history, don't bother talking about Larry Clark... because you'll just make yourself look like a damn fool.

I had a beer and Claudia and I decided to leave the house and head back into the city. I fell asleep. I went outside and saw Terrence Jennings of all people AND Nelson George. My cousin Jean Grae came to meet me and we walked all over the city for a few hours catching up on life. It was a blast to see her and to finally not be trying to play phone tag with her. CVS had my prescription - so happy to have some medicines for this cold. I cannot take one more day of it!

Had an interesting day... went to sleep.

September 18, 2010

Day 4 of not feeling well. Claudia and I went Upstate to hang out. I was too tired to take any pictures from my camera phone. Groceries, Tylenol, Sunny day, BMW, Cleaning - describes this day. Sweating and trying to sleep also describes this day.
