First-time Austin Filmmakers Jason and Krissi Lindsey Selected for Austin Short Film Fest...

Love can be really, really, really blind Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 21, 2015 Independent filmmakers Jason and Krissi Lindsey are proud to announce the acceptance of their film Loving Olivia into the 2015 Austin Short Film Fest. The July event will showcase 38 films from six countries including Spain, Singapore, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA. We are thrilled to have been selected for this honor, said Krissi Lindsey of Austin. My husband Jason and I poured our hearts into writing the movie and bringing together the talent to help shape our vision. To be chosen for our very first film makes this particularly exciting. Loving Olivia stars local actors Avery Merrifield and Caiti Ward. It is the story of love-struck John, who fails to notice girlfriend Olivias quirky behavior until he introduces her to a group of friends. The character Olivia is based on the real-world Twitterbot @oliviataters created by The Colbert Report writer Rob Dubbin, who programmed the bot to mimic a teenage girl by using popular slang and mashing together trending phrases. Lindsey adds, When we discovered @oliviataters and the story behind the algorithm, we were immediately obsessed with it. We were even more intrigued to learn that younger generations believed her to be real despite the ridiculousness of her tweets. What made Olivia so realistic to others? Has written communication devolved so significantly that fragmented sentences are now the norm for some? Once the horror of an acronym-laden future passed, comedy took hold. We had to bring Olivia to life and have her hang out with grown-ups. The Austin Short Film Fest takes place at the Galaxy Highland 10 Theater (6700 Middle Fiskville Rd) in Austin on Wednesday, July 29, and Thursday, July 30. Loving Olivia runs just under 16 minutes and will be shown at 7:45pm on July 30. Tickets may be purchased by visiting http://www.AustinShortFilm.com. Loving Olivia is also an official selection for the 2015 Harrisburg-Hershey Film Festival, which will take place at Midtown Cinema (250 Reily St) in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on September 11, 2015 at 6pm. Tickets may be purchased by visiting http://harrisburghersheyfilmfestival.com/tickets/. For more information on Loving Olivia, visit the official website, Facebook page, or Twitter account.

Teens Remix Hollywood Movies at Media Literacy Event with The LAMP...

Participants for “Break the Trailer” New York, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2015 Teams of New York City teens remixed Hollywood at The LAMPs recent Break the Trailer event, creating mashups of hit movies such as Jurassic World, Annabelle, Pitch Perfect 2 and Minions as well as major franchises like Taken, Star Wars, Star Trek and the James Bond series. The event followed other LAMP “Break” programming, such as “Break the Super Bowl” and precedes the forthcoming “Break the VMAs.” The teens, students at the United Nations International School, met at the Sony Wonder Technology Lab for two workshop sessions in which they explored the purpose of movie trailers, how they are constructed and how they have changed over time. The students then broke into pairs and created original movie trailers based on video clips. Ive always kind of had a passion for movie trailers, said one student, Nicholas Sakoff. So to be a part of the process, its interesting. Its fun..I know now how much work it takes to make these short videos. I used to think it was simple, but it’s really time consuming and takes a lot of work. Finished trailers ultimately commented on the homogeneity of box office hits and action movie franchises, as well as the ways in which women are represented. Others used familiar characters to construct entirely new stories for fictional upcoming films. I think whats the coolest about this project is that you get to create new things out of the old things that already existed, said student Yifan Wang. The trailers were screened in the HD Theatre at the Sony Wonder Technology Lab for LAMP supporters as well as the families of the students. The screening also included a short film about the process of making the trailers, produced by SheKnows Media. The event concluded with awards voted on by the audience and a panel of judges consisting of Emily Anne Epstein (The Atlantic), Alia Jones-Harvey (Mayors Office of Media and Entertainment), Alejandra Ramos (AlwaysOrderDessert.com) and David Levinson Wilk (CrosswordsForCongress.com). “Especially given the time they had, I thought the remixes were really sharp,” said Levinson Wilk. “The students used sound, music and images to show how interchangeable movie franchises really are. It was tough to tell when you were watching Star Trek or Star Wars, which says something about Hollywood and what we as an audience expect from big movies.” Im really proud of everything the students were able to accomplish in just two workshop sessions, said Alan Berry, Director of Education for The LAMP. Its clear from their projects that they learned new skills in editing, and throughout the process itself we could hear them starting to talk differently about not only movie trailers, but also movies themselves. Every young person needs to learn media literacy and critical thinking skills, and this workshop allowed them to practice those skills in a fun, hands-on way. Student Ana Ferreira echoed the uniqueness of the program, saying, I feel Im just getting to do something Ive never done before. The LAMP is currently working on documenting its “Break” workshops so that events can be held independently across the country. This documentation, called “Break-a-thon in a Box” is expected for release in early 2016.

Tibetan Buddhist Master to Speak at Town Hall Seattle July 3, 2015...

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 23, 2015 Garchen Rinpoche will present a talk, “Living a Meaningful Life” at Town Hall Seattle from 7-8:30pm. Doors open at 6pm. Town Hall Seattle is located at 1119 Eighth Avenue, at Seneca Street, Seattle, WA 98101. The venue is ADA accessible. Living a meaningful life is one of todays most sought-after objectives, and, according to Tibetan Buddhist teacher Garchen Rinpoche, its something anyone can achieve. Garchen Rinpoches personal life has been filled with both turmoil and triumph. Hell share this historyhow he was imprisoned for 20 years and sent to a forced labor camp during Chinas Cultural Revolutionand how it informed his teachings of compassion. Featured in the films Yogis of Tibet and For The Benefit of All Beings, Garchen Rinpoche has dedicated his life to aiding others. Hell give insight into how, despite personal suffering, anyone can use adversity to benefit both themselves and others. The event is hosted by Drikung Seattle which Garchen Rinpoche founded in 2013 at the request of local students. Drikung Seattle board member Karen Smith says, Rinpoche is such an inspiration to many because though he suffered so much physically during twenty years in prison and hard labor camp he has absolutely no bitterness, resentment or anger and nothing but love. He even says he is grateful for the experience because he met his teacher Khenpo Munsel in prison. Whenever I feel discouraged I watch the DVD about his life story and its like hitting the reset button. She continues, “Rinpoche turned 78 in April but he hasn’t slowed down at all. He travels the world continuously to teach because he has such a sense of urgency to share the Buddha’s message of loving kindness and compassion.” Rinpoche’s teacher, Khenpo Munsel, was astonished by Rinpoche’s vast achievement. Khenpo Munsel called him “an emanation of a Bodhisattva,” a being completely dedicated to the welfare of others. The Bodhisattvas attitude is summarized in this quote from the 16th Karmapa, “You keep going. That is the bodhisattvas way. As long as it benefits even one being you have to, without any sense of discouragement, go on. Rinpoche is the subject of a feature length documentary entitled: For the Benefit of All Beings. View the trailer for the movie here: http://youtu.be/tyHsv9M2hw0 This documentary played in many theaters across the US and is now available on DVD, which will be available for purchase at the talk. Event note: American Sign Language interpretation will be provided by Rainstar Barger. There is a scholarship ticket option available, which allows patrons to donate as they are able. Admission is free for monks, nuns, and other clergy. All proceeds from the talk will benefit Drikung Seattle.

The Necklace Production Launches a Crowdfunding Campaign...

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2015 The Necklace Production is pleased to announce its new crowdfunding campaign, which launched on June 11. Led by Patrice Edwards, the campaign seeks to raise funds for a full-length feature film about a woman who moves into a haunted house and doesnt realize it until its too late. This will be the first full-length feature horror movie directed by a black, disabled female filmmaker, says Edwards, who has Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS). I want to prove to the world that I possess the knowledge it takes to make a film. Edwards has long worked to overcome others perception of her disability. TCS is an extremely rare disorder, found in only about one in 50,000 births. Craniofacial deformities are characteristic of the condition, including absent cheekbones, downward-slanting eyes, a small lower jaw, conductive hearing loss, drooping lower eyelids, and malformed or absent ears. Edwards was born with TCS, including sunken cheeks and microtia ears that affect her hearing. When Edwards arrived in Hollywood to pursue her dream, she was dismayed by her reception. She found lookaphobia, lookism, and lookists to be commonplace, and it has been a fight for her to be taken seriously. Shes grown tired of her abilities being doubted and continues to fight to prove herself. When Edward filmed her first project in 2012, she had difficulty communicating with the actors and crew because only one of them knew any sign language. On top of that, her hearing aid was broken. However, she was able to overcome the challenges, thanks to her perseverance and the kindness of her actors, and the project was a success. WITCH, a low-budget short film, was written, produced, and directed by Edwards. To watch the films trailer, visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrfR9L3vhkU Edwards hopes that her inspiring story and groundbreaking project will garner the support needed to reach The Necklace Productions funding goal. As she makes the film, shell vlog about it daily. I want people to see exactly how far their contributions will go, she says. Those who contribute will receive a DVD copy of WITCH and have the chance to participate in film history.

Topics range from motorhome chassis maintenance to microwave-convection cooking. Attendees also will be able to tour motorhomes of all types, sizes, and price ranges as part of the Motorhome Showcase. Looking for a diesel-powered motorhome with all of the latest luxuries? Or maybe a van-chassis-based RV that provides all of the amenities needed to enjoy life on the road, but in a smaller package? Explore these options and everything in between as you consider what would best suit your travel style. Other organized activities include tours of local attractions, fun-filled games, and musical performances each evening. And attendees will have time for plenty of socializing with their fellow motorhome owners. Members of the general public are invited to join the fun. For those who want to view only the motorhome exhibition, admission costs $ 7 per day; children 12 and under are admitted free with an accompanying adult, as are those with an active military ID.
