Elizabeth Cheshire's TV debut as the winsome stepdaughter of a knockabout musician on the sit-com Sunshine earned accolades from such critics as Cecil Smith of the L.A. Times, who credited the 8-year-old actress with "remarkable assurance and charm." Although NBC will not renew Sunshine next season, Liz is hardly likely to be unemployed. She now finds her craft "a breeze." Good thing. The daughter of an L.A. TV-station stage manager, Liz has had to bag earlier dreams of working in an ice cream parlor. "I'd eat too much and get fired."
Chuck Braverman, 31, believes that the "big flaw" in film schools (he graduated from USC's in '67) is their failure to "teach you how to get a job, how to hustle." Braverman's door-opener to the biz was his exploitation of a sophisticated technique called "kinestasis"—a subliminally fast mix of still photos, graphics, animation and motion picture footage with which he has concocted such oddities as a three-minute romp through 200 years of history. Called "The American Time Capsule," Braverman first scored with it on the Smothers Brothers' CBS series in 1968. Since then his major documentaries—on such subjects as welfare recipients, black history and childbirth—have earned him an Emmy and other high professional honors. But what butters the bread over at Braverman Productions on Sunset Boulevard (and also allows the boss his passion for skiing and motorcycling) are commercials and the titles he produces for such TV shows as Cher and Rhoda. Recently married, Braverman contemplates the next logical step, a feature film. The subject? "The kind that people will like, so I can make money to make more films that people will like."
