NY-Based Selz Foundation Commits up to $150,000 in Matching Funds Grant for Controversial Film Project
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Jeff Hays, Executive Producer of Bought, today announced the New York City-based Selz Foundation has generously committed up to $ 150,000 in a matching funds grant for the controversial film Bought.
Bought is a film dedicated to uncovering, exposing and highlighting the facts all individuals have a right to know about the food supply, Big Pharma and vaccines. The movie features such individuals as:
Allen Jones Whistleblower and former investigator in Pennsylvania Office of the Inspector General
Dr. David Healy, PhD Psychiatrist, Scientist, Psychopharmacologist and Author
Dr. Andrew Wakefield
Barbara Loe Fisher President of the National Vaccine Information Center
Interviews are being conducted by Toni Bark, M.D., a respected Disaster Medicine Specialist. The film is informative and filled with cited facts and research to support the experts statements.
I have seen the research and it is extremely frightening. Every American should be educated about what is in the food they eat every day, the potential side effects of vaccines and the truth behind Big Pharma, said Jeff Hays, producer of Bought. There are many companies that are buying the health and well being of citizens. Its time we ban together and stand up for ourselves, our health and our worldlet them know we cannot be bought! I am pleased that an organization such as the Selz Foundation agrees and has boldly stepped up with this matching grant.
Bought has enlisted the public in the fund raising activities and are hosting their campaign on the popular Indiegogo site, at http://www.supportboughtmovie.com.
Bought is a film about the issue of health being sold out from underneath individuals through big pharmaceutical companies, dangerous vaccinations and a food supply chain contaminated by the use of GMOs. Jeff Hays started Capstone Entertainment in the mid-nineties and built a production/distribution company to a multi-million dollar level and won numerous awards in childrens programming. One of Jeffs most notable films was Fahrenhype 9/11, which he produced in 2004 featuring Ron Silver, Dick Morris, Senator Zell Miller, Mayor Ed Koch and others. This film generated millions in revenue and was widely accepted by the public and received positive reviews from the NY Times, Variety and other media. In 2005, Jeff produced On Native Soil where he was short-listed for an Academy Award. He also produced My Workout on Lifetime Television for a year and most recently released Doctored which has already sold over 150,000 copies. Bought is currently scheduled to be released Spring 2014.

'The Christmas Candle,' 'Narco Cultura,' 'Everyday,' 'Cold Turkey': movie reviews
THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE -- 1 star. A candlemaker and his family hope for a miracle. (1:31) PG. Empire 25. This odd Dickens-meets-Sunday-school movie is as artless as the setup is muddled. Centuries ago, an angel apparently blessed a candlemaker's ...

Reel Stuff is available in Hardcover (ISBN: 978-1-60809-096-9, Mystery/Thriller, 272 Pages, List Retail: $ 26.95) and all e-Book/Digital formats (ISBN: 978-1-60809-097-6, List Retail: $ 14.95)
Award Winning Actor Falls to His Death Was it Suicide or Murder?
Is it suicide or murder when Academy Award winning actor Jason Londell leaps to his death during the filming of a TV show in Miami? Londells actress girlfriend hires private investigators James Lessor and Skip Moore to investigate. They uncover a plot loaded with twists and fueled by money and greed.
The case sends James, Skip, and Skips girlfriend Emily to Los Angeles where the blonde beauty goes undercover in Hollywood and is discovered by a talent agent. The normally level-headed Emily gets carried away by the dream of a career in pictures, but true to the cause of the case, she works with the guys to bring down the killer.
Caught up in the world of movies, actors, actresses, and Hollywood, the trio finds that it really is the land of make-believe but murder is still the real thing.
Bruns latest Stuff novel (following Too Much Stuff, 2011) is a lean, thoroughly entertaining mysteryClues, laughs, and shenanigans abound. The Stuff novels arent quite comedy-mysteries, but theyre about as close as you can get, effectively mixing serious crime with plenty of humor.
Reel Stuff is a hilarious mystery/thriller that will have you laughing out loud at some of the characters' antics. The action moves a mile-a-minute and the main characters are a zany lot. Throw in an eclectic mix of supporting characters: bad guys, gold-diggers, producers, directors, actors and actresses, and Don Bruns blends it all together to produce another comical mystery/thriller in his Stuff series. I haven't read all of them, but the ones I have read are definitely worth the time and effort.
"Reel Stuff is a superior example of the form of writing I describe as amiable mystery. Don Bruns is one of these laid-back authors who makes the craft look easy, propelling the reader rapidly through the mists of uncertainty until our hero emerges into the light of understanding with the solution. As a whodunnit, this is satisfying. It also works as a gentle thriller. Perhaps of equal importance, the dynamic of Skips relationship with Emily is developing rather nicely. Too often the immediate mystery dominates and limits the space available for us to watch the characters live their lives. Reel Stuff gets the balance right and leaves us with a bittersweet ending. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next episode."

Should you be about to convert sci-fi into truth, you should ready the ground carefully. Mistakes made in the beginning might be difficult to correct. The great news for owners, naturally, is that when the application is dependable, there ought to be no more accidents. Whether there are no further accidents, it is not an instance of inexpensive car insurance. The demand for any car insurance is removed. Except that is not likely to occur. The demand for insurance policy will carry on. It is quite impossible to ignore the possibility of mishaps.
Why may there be accidents?
Merely passing regulations to make it a criminal violation to crack a car computer or to inflict higher fines for jaywalking are definitely not likely to solve issues like this. Hackers everywhere may consider sovereign cars a great target. Youngsters will presume it amusing to play chicken together with the independent vehicles coming their way. Because it is going to not be possible to police every kilometer of street, all humans must be banned from approaching routes used by independent automobiles. Yes, these devices may create a reduction in car insurance quotes for all owners. However do we need to create streets humanfree zones as the cost of cheap car insurance?
It really is convenient to believe only about the driver. Google and one other businesses working on sovereign driving systems prefer to focus on all the advantages of the applications. Their discussion is exceedingly basic. Although removing the individual driver will decrease the number of accidents, it can not remove them. Let us consider only two obvious possibilities:
1. Equipped with lasers, radar and cameras, the developers claim the automatic vehicles will go above and beyond the call of duty to prevent collisions. So let us suppose on a new sport for bored youngsters. They appear down the road and see a truck returning so they step out into the road and stand in its course. Exactly what the does truck do? Its programming shows it that it cannot kill the pedestrian so it must swerve. But which manner? If it swerves on to the other side of the road, it is going to crash into every one of the vehicles coming within the other direction. In case it swerves to the sidewalk, it'll potentially kill people and demolish walls, fences and power poles. The kids standing in the center of the street ought to have a grandstand seat for the ensuing crashes.
2. There's no totally powerful firewall in the world. Pretty much every computer in all important industrial and military websites is compromised at a certain point in time. The idea the defense for a car will somehow prevent outsiders from overriding the applications is absurd. Given the amount of technology already in automobiles, hackers have already demonstrated how easy it is to override the braking and steering techniques. The recent fiasco with BMW security shows hackers may readily identify and exploit weaknesses in code.
Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Exceptional Minds digital arts vocational school for young adults with autism has been making the Hollywood rounds these past few weeks in order to help prepare its first graduating class for careers in the highly competitive fields of digital animation and post-production.
Executives from Sony Pictures Imageworks and Warner Bros. Animation recently visited the school as guest lecturers, as did key animators as well as a recruiter from Film Roman animation studio. Exceptional Minds students all on the spectrum and preparing for careers in the digital arts -- also met with staff and crew at DreamWorks Animation, Film Roman, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Titmouse Animation, and Big Screen Network Production in the past two months. In addition to lecture speakers and studio tours, four Exceptional Minds graduating students and an instructor recently worked on visual effects for upcoming blockbuster movie American Hustle, earning them screen credit for their contribution to the film.
This recent activity is all part of Exceptional Minds three-year digital arts program taught by movie industry professionals and adapted for the special needs of individuals with autism. We have reached the point in our program where our students have met most of their program certification requirements and are now continuing their education outside the classroom. When we called on the industry to give of their time, we were overwhelmed by the response and the genuine interest in our students, said Susan Zwerman, one of the co-founders of Exceptional Minds who is also an established visual effects producer and recipient of the 2013 Frank Capra Achievement award.
Guest lecturers Sam Register, Executive Vice President of Creative Affairs at Warner Bros., and Ken Maruyama, Vice President, Global Academic Relations for Sony Pictures Imageworks, spoke to Exceptional Minds students of the skills involved in the creative process and offered tips for developing an effective portfolio. Animators at Film Roman studio took the students through a typical project for their client The Simpsons, and detailed the job functions involved. Outside the school, third-year Exceptional Minds students went behind the scenes at Sony to see a movie in development and view new film footage not yet shown to the public. At DreamWorks Animation they got to see the typical development of a movie, from script to voiceover.
Next month, Exceptional Minds students will visit ShadowMachine, Method Studios and Nickelodeon plus bring in a guest from Cartoon Network Studios. Most of this cant be taught in the classroom and its helpful for the student to visualize how they can develop their careers, said Exceptional Minds instructor Laura Robinson, who was a production intern at Cartoon Network Studios and Film Roman and who happens to be high-functioning on the autism spectrum.
Since opening its doors in 2011, Exceptional Minds has grown from a small school with nine students to almost triple the enrollment with a move into an expansive new facility. Eight students will be the first to graduate from the new facility in June 2014, most leaving the program with film credit for their title work on the 2012 movie Lawless and/or detailed visual effects work on major motion picture American Hustle. All will have achieved proficiency in six software applications considered the gold standard in the digital visual effects industry, including at least three Adobe applications. Some will pursue their dream of working for a post-production or 3D animation studio in nearby Los Angeles based on the skills and experience learned at Exceptional Minds. Others will pursue contract work through the Exceptional Minds Studio, a working studio run separately from the school that will open next year for graduates pursuing independent contract work such as 3D film conversion (rotoscoping), visual effects cleanup and other graphics and animation post-production or design work in demand. Exceptional Minds digital arts academy for young adults on the autism spectrum is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization.
About Exceptional Minds (http://www.exceptionalmindsstudio.org): Exceptional Minds is a non-profit vocational center and working production studio for young adults on the autism spectrum. It was chartered in 2011 to provide the training necessary for creatively-gifted individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) who may not otherwise be able to make the transition from high school to careers. Exceptional Minds offers technical proficiency and work readiness training that prepares students for careers in graphic arts, animation, web design, visual effects and rotoscoping. Located in Sherman Oaks, California, Exceptional Minds is both an instructional learning facility and a working studio with hands-on student involvement in production projects, many for the film industry.
