Up, Up And Away

(Starts at 8:00)

When Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones last acted together, they each got Oscar nominations and Redmayne won. That was for the Stephen Hawking story, “The Theory of Everything.” Now they’ve reunited for “The Aeronauts” in which they play 19th Century balloonists. “The Aeronauts” made its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival which is where John Horn caught up with them. (Opens in theaters on Dec. 6.)

How To Make A Record — Literally

(Starts at 19:00)

Vinyl records never really went away and they’ve made a big comeback in recent years. That means business is booming for the handful of record pressing plants scattered across the country. Detroit is the only U.S. city with two pressers and they're among the busiest in the business. Archer Record Pressers is one of the longest surviving — in business for over half-a-century. And then there’s musician Jack White’s Third Man Pressing, which opened in 2017. Both shops illustrate how far record pressing has come in recent years — and how very little has changed. Vinyl junkie and Frame contributor Steven Cuevas paid a visit.
