Long-time Chicago Cubs spring training P.A. announcer, Tim Sheridan, has partnered with Kickstarter.com to help complete a documentary film over 25 years in the making. "Boys of Spring - The Movie," follows Tim on his journey with the iconic, hard-luck, Chicago Cubs as both he and the Cubs attempt to reach their ultimate dreams.

The film is full of behind the scenes, never-before-seen footage shot by Tim as he worked next to Cubs legends like Harry Caray and Ron Santo. As Tim puts it, "There's more to a team than the games they play."

"Boys of Spring - The Movie" is nearing final production; however funding is needed for official release of this unique documentary to fans. Tim says, "Kickstarter seemed to be the best way to get Cubs fans involved in the production of the film. As a die-hard Cubs fan myself, I know how important our team's legacy and history is. Kickstarter gives fans a rare opportunity to contribute to that history."

To be a part of "Boys of Spring - The Movie," fans can donate as little as $10 using an Amazon.com account. As a thank you, fans will receive a copy of the Boys of Spring documentary before its official release next spring. There are a range of donation levels and rewards available on Kickstarter.com, including Cubs memorabilia and your name in the movie's credits. With a significant donation ($3,000+), Tim will personally announce your child's little league game, speak at an event, or name you as a producer of the film.

Boys of Spring isn't about a team winning or losing. It's about something deeper. An examination of life on its winding path and how, in spite of perceived failures, there is happiness and success. Cub fans will find joy this season and for years to come with the Boys of Spring film by donating and claiming their place in Cubs history. An epic World Series drought can't stop the faithful Cubs followers, who know better than anyone - "There's always next spring!"

Featuring interviews with historians, politicians, and experts, including Donald Trump, Rep. Michele Bachmann, Rep. Allen West, Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Buzz Aldrin, Douglas Brinkley, Edwin Meese III, Allen Guelzo, Fred Barnes, Michael Barone, Andrew Breitbart, S.E.

Producers RSVP ‘The Beat Hotel’ for Big Screen

Author: Rex Weiner
Dateline: Hollywood, California (HOLLYWOOD, Calif.)  | Wed, 13 Apr 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “'The Beat Hotel,' the non-fiction book by Barry Miles, about American Beat Era icons creating groundbreaking art, literature and lifestyles in a legendary hotel in Paris, 1957-1963, has been optioned by producer Pamela Dickerson for development as a narrative feature film. Pamela has teamed with Rex Weiner, a journalist and playwright, to co-produce.”



A R T I C L E:

"The Beat Hotel," the non-fiction book by Barry Miles (ISBN: 978-1903809587, Grove, 2000), about American Beat Era icons creating groundbreaking art, literature and lifestyles in a legendary hotel in Paris, 1957-1963, has been optioned by producer Pamela Dickerson for development as a narrative feature film. Pamela has teamed with Rex Weiner, a journalist and playwright, to co-produce and develop the property.

Publishers Weekly's review of "The Beat Hotel" said: "Part scholarly study and part gossip-fest, this account traces the aesthetic, sexual and social goings-on in Paris: 'Within the shelter of the Beat Hotel,' Miles writes, 'they had mapped out many of the paths that the Sixties Generation was to actually follow: the recreational use of drugs and experiments with psychedelics..., investigations into magic and mysticism..., gay rights and sexual freedom, the legalization of pornography and challenges to obscenity laws.'"

Pamela said, "From the moment I read Miles' book I was totally enamored. Paris in that era provided freedom from the rampant conformism of the U.S., and 9 rue Git-le-Coeur was a sanctuary for Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, William Burroughs, and Brion Gysin, to explore humanity and passionate creative expression. With locations in Paris, Amsterdam, Italy, Germany, including vignettes of Jack Kerouac in, New York, San Francisco, and Morocco, and a soundtrack tuned to the jazz greats of the time, film will be a stylistic bi-lingual cultural reve."

Pamela teamed with Rex Weiner on "The Beat Hotel" project after the production of "Waiting For Jack," a stage-play co-created and co-produced by Weiner about Beat Era poets. "His stage and screen credits and extensive cultural journalism make him a natural fit for 'The Beat Hotel,'" she said.

The producing group is now putting the project out to directors and talent, as well as sales agents in advance of the upcoming Cannes Film Market.

ABOUT THE TEAM:

About Pamela Dickerson:

Pamela Dickerson gained her interest for the lives and times of the Beat Era while on stage as an American actress in Paris with The Actor's Group, performing leads in Mamet's "All Men Are Whores," Joyce Carol-Oats' "I Stand Before You Naked," Koltès' "Roberto Zucco" and a Sam Shepard series for Radio France Culture, directed by Robert Cordier, the Belgian / English playwright who was an intimate of the Beats, and French translator, also of Allen Ginsberg's "Howl." Her screen credits include Oliver Stone's "Nixon," and" The Last Big Thing" in which she played opposite Mark Ruffalo. Pamela was nominated Best New Director for "Just Another Day In New York" at the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival, a feature film in which she also acted, co-wrote and shot. Recently she co-produced "The Guru & The Gypsy" with Philippe Caland.

About Rex Weiner:

As a journalist, Weiner's first stories appeared in the East Village Other, one of the original "underground papers" of the 1960s. His articles have appeared in Vanity Fair, the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine, the New Yorker, New York Observer, LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Italia. Weiner's screenwriting credits include "The Adventures Of Ford Fairlane" (20th Century Fox) and "Forgotten Prisoners: The Amnesty Files," among the first of TNT's original feature-length movies. As one of the first writers brought on board to launch the TV series "Miami Vice," Weiner wrote the now classic 9th episode, "Glades." He is one of the founding editors of High Times Magazine and co-author of "The Woodstock Census" (ISBN: 0670782068, Viking, 1979), one of the key texts analyzing the impact of the Sixties Generation on American society. The writer/director of several plays, Rex most recently co-created and co-produced "Waiting For Jack," a celebrated staged reading by an array of top Los Angeles poets of works by poets of the Beat Era.

"Nine Days that Changed the World," hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich, and produced by Citizens United Productions in association with Gingrich Productions and Peace River Company, has received dual honors at the 32nd Annual Telly Awards, winning a Silver Award in the category of Religion and Spirituality, and a Bronze Award in the category of History and Biography. A Silver Award is the Telly's highest honor.

"Nine Days that Changed the World" explores Pope John Paul II's historic nine-day pilgrimage to Poland in June of 1979, which created a revolution of conscience that transformed Poland and reshaped the spiritual and political landscape of the 20th Century.

This award-winning documentary examines the momentous events that moved the Polish people to renew their hearts, reclaim their courage, and free themselves from the shackles of Communism.

"Our goal in creating 'Nine Days that Changed the World' is to share the story of Pope John Paul II's pilgrimage to Poland in 1979 and describe how it ultimately contributed to the defeat of the Soviet Union and the liberation of millions in Central and Eastern Europe," said Callista Gingrich, President of Gingrich Productions. "It is a true honor for our documentary to be recognized by the Telly Awards this year."

Since 1978, the Telly Awards have honored the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video, film productions, and work created for the Internet. Last year, they received over 13,000 entries from all fifty states and five continents.

‘There’s Gold In Them Hills,’ According to Marketers: Joe Kerr and Others Trek to Sundance

Author: Joe Kerr
Dateline: Los Angeles, California (LOS ANGELES, Calif.)  | Thu, 20 Jan 2011

A R T I C L E:

Joe Kerr, composer for film and television, is making his way to the plush Utah resort this week for the annual festival. As many people with things to market are on their way to Sundance to hock there goods. Sundance is one of the more popular events in the film festival season. Started by Robert Redford 28 years ago the festival has become a Mecca for luxury goods and famous celebrities. Besides being a premier place to showcase one's film and hopefully find a distributor Sundance is now a "marketing must" for those who sell anything Hollywood.

"It's Joe Kerr" has created a popular YouTube channel with a music video that is beginning to be widely distributed by military families. The video portrays a young woman who is called to duty in the National Guard. She is forced to leave her young daughter and husband behind. In an unfortunate accident the woman is killed tragically leaving her family unexpectedly. The short film, as videos have become, is sad, but the music uplift and compliments the lyrics.

Many people have compared Joe's music to that of Captain Beefheart, who recently passed away, or Coldplay. Joey is a big fan of both artists and is willing to make music to fit any television show or film. "I am trying to make contacts by going to Sundance," says Joe, "I love working with creative people and it is my goal to simply make some friends in the industry that I can work with in the future."

Joey is not alone in these tough economic times many people are finding unique ways to market their products and services. The fact is Justin Bieber wasn't discovered by a major label; he was discovered by YouTube.com and there are many artists who dream of that same level of success from the Internet. So, as companies give away their products to celebrities Joe will be among them promoting himself by giving away DVDs, CDs and playing some of the local venues in-and-around Park City to entertain visitors.

"I really believe in order to make it in Hollywood," Joe pontificated, "you've got to be willing to go that extra mile, but don't think I am not going skiing at least one day." He does plan to get a lot of work in, but says it will be a working vacation. "The best deals in Hollywood are always made in a casual environment," according to the artist and he just wants to be where the action is happening; and for the industry, this week, the action is in Sundance and Park City, Utah.

"Sundance is so exclusive," declared Joey, "but everywhere I go there is a party and you are all invited." Part of Joe's unique strategy to market himself to producers and directors is by going to many film festivals (and meeting them in a casual setting), but he says, "Sundance is the mother load."
