Shyamalan gets Kodak moment

Helmer to be feted at ShowEast 2002

HOLLYWOOD — M. Night Shyamalan, whose summer suspenser “Signs” has soared north of $200 million domestically, was named Monday to receive the Kodak Award at ShowEast 2002.

Shyamalan will be feted at an awards gala set to close the annual exhib trade show Oct. 12. The Kodak award is presented annually to a leading industry exec or filmmaker.

“What an incredible honor this is for both ShowEast and Kodak,” Kodak digital systems VP-general manager Robert Mayson said. “When you talk about great directing and great storytelling — and above all, when you talk about great entertainment — you can’t help but think of the films of M. Night Shyamalan.”

“Signs” was Shyamalan’s fifth outing as a helmer, after “Praying with Anger” (1992), “Wide Awake” (1997), “The Sixth Sense” (1999) and “Unbreakable” (2000). He also has written several screenplays, including lit adaptation “Stuart Little.”

ShowEast 2002 begins Oct. 9 at the Marriott Orlando World Center in Orlando.
