A R T I C L E:

DAX Cloud ULC, the Canadian arm of DAX, the Los Angeles-based provider of cloud-based production and post-production services, has booked the hit historical drama "VIKINGS" as its first major Canadian production. VIKINGS, created and written by Michael Hirst, is slotted by the History Channel for a 10-episode second season.

The international Irish/Canadian co-production is being co-produced by Octagon Films and Take 5 Productions.

DAX Cloud ULC launched its Canadian operations in April 2013, delivering cloud workflow and media asset management applications to companies that produce, distribute and license audio-visual content. The company's first international office in Toronto is a Canadian entity offering access to Canadian tax credits for U.S. clients shooting in Canada, and Canadian clients shooting worldwide.

"We're pleased and proud to be working with Take 5 on Vikings, the #1 new Canadian scripted specialty debut of 2013," said DAX executive Dan Duffin, Regional Account Manager. "Canadian customers will be dealing with DAX Canada, but have the comfort of the oversight and quality control of USA DAX, and the added value of qualification for the Canadian Tax Credit."

Take 5 Post-Production chief Bill Goddard said, "DAX is the perfect platform to achieve efficiencies of cost and time for our production, which requires work-in-progress viewing and approvals from on-location to multiple entities in geographically dispersed offices. DAX brings it all seamlessly together."

Premiering to over 1.1 million viewers, VIKINGS averaged 942,000 total U.S. viewers in its 10 p.m. time slot. The History Channel broadcasts both domestically in Canada and in the U.S., while MGM Television serves as the international distributor for VIKINGS outside of Ireland, Canada and the U.S.

Heading up the DAX Cloud office in Toronto, located at 693 Queen Street East, is Managing Director Thomas Walden, who has worked in a variety of Finance and Operations functions for some of Canada's largest entertainment companies including Alliance Atlantis, Cineplex Odeon and Concert Productions International.

Dan Duffin oversees the DAX Canadian sales and servicing team after a five-year stint as Director of Professional Authoring Services and more recently the Capsule Asset Management System for top Toronto Post house Creative Post.

Canada's indigenous broadcasting and independent production industry yields almost $2.3 billion in economic activity annually. Clients already on board with DAX include such companies as CBC, CTV, Global, E1, Take 5 Productions and Lionsgate.

Television shows currently using the DAX platform include: Republic of Doyle, Homeland, NCIS, New Girl, The Walking Dead, CSI, American's Next Top Model, Bones, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, Dexter and Mad Men, Hell on Wheels and all of the pilots for CBS Television Studios, 20th Century Fox, and Warner Bros. Television Studios. Recent feature film productions include Hunger Games, Twilight, 42, Dolphin Tale, Resident Evil 5, Beautiful Creatures, and Mortal Instruments, as well as many other tent pole and independent feature films.

Author: The Columbus NAACP
Dateline: Columbus, Ohio (COLUMBUS, Ohio)  | Mon, 26 Nov 2012

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Cable giant Time Warner, with the recent acquisition of Insight Communications, now controls 90 percent of the cable viewing market in Columbus, Ohio. However, according to the Minority Media Community Collaborative (MMCC) it lacks local African American and other minority media programming. The MMCC consists of The Columbus NAACP, The Baptist Ministerial Alliance, The Haitian Catholic Coalition of Ohio, The Asian Chamber of Commerce and The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.”



A R T I C L E:

Cable giant Time Warner, with the recent acquisition of Insight Communications, now controls 90 percent of the cable viewing market in Columbus, Ohio. However, according to the Minority Media Community Collaborative (MMCC) it lacks local African American and other minority media programming. The MMCC consists of The Columbus NAACP, The Baptist Ministerial Alliance, The Haitian Catholic Coalition of Ohio, The Asian Chamber of Commerce and The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

The MMCC says that despite repeated requests Time Warner Cable has steadfastly refused to meet with them to discuss the disparity of local African American and other minority programming.

Noel Williams, President of the Columbus branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP - www.columbusnaacp.org) says, "This kind of snubbing represents the worst example of corporate arrogance and cultural insensitivity. The issue of equal media participation is of paramount importance to all of our communities."

Joy Kouns, the Asian Chamber of Commerce adds, "Time Warner Cable has a responsibility to provide local programming that meets the needs of a highly diversified Columbus community."

The Reverend Joel King, cousin of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. concludes, "Blatant disregard is not acceptable. We will not be snubbed, disrespected, shut out or ignored. Our voices will be heard."

The Minority Media Community Collaborative has scheduled a press conference to address this issue:
DATE: Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
TIME: from 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
LOCATION: Family Missionary Baptist Church, 996 Oakwood Ave.

Please contact for further information: 614-218-8200 or columbusnaacp1@juno.com.

About NAACP:

The real story of the nation's most significant civil rights organization lies in the hearts and minds of the people who would not stand idly by while the rights of America's darker citizens were denied. From bold investigations of mob brutality, protests of mass murders, segregation and discrimination, to testimony before congressional committees on the vicious tactics used to bar African Americans from the ballot box, it was the talent and tenacity of NAACP members that saved lives and changed many negative aspects of American society. While much of NAACP history is chronicled in books, articles, pamphlets and magazines, the true movement lies in the faces - black, white, yellow, red, and brown - united to awaken the consciousness of a people and a nation. The NAACP will remain vigilant in its mission until the promise of America is made real for all Americans More information: www.columbusnaacp.org .

A R T I C L E:

The television viewing habits of children and adults alike are changing on an almost daily basis. Viewing options abound and parents and teachers are taking notice. Customizing a child's viewing habits is becoming easier and easier and Silva Animation Studio, Inc., the producer of Color with Leo(R), is reaching new audiences through these technologies.

Color with Leo(R) is an educational and animated series targeting children from Pre-K through first grade. The central character, Leo, sets off on a series of adventures to learn more about the beauty and mysteries of art and science. In the first episode, Leo encounters a young Christopher Columbus who explains how ships float and move. Leo continues to draw the ships using basic geometric shapes and children are exposed to basic concepts in science, while getting entertained too.

This first episode in a projected series is currently available for viewing on several alternative viewing channels that include Ameba TV, also referred to as Smart Kids TV; through an application available on smart TVs; and on Apple and Android devices. It is also available for viewing on Kidobi where its technology automatically adapts to a child's unique skill level and developmental stage.

"Parents and teachers really need to take advantage of all of these terrific tools to customize their children's viewing. Of course, parents and teachers want kids to learn, but they want them to have fun too," Norman Silva, founder of Silva Animation Studio, says. "These various outlets and technologies make it easy. And, Color with Leo(R) makes it even easier by providing useful support material such as printable lessons, activities and coloring pages on its website."

Additionally, with outlets such as Ameba TV, kids do not have to wait for their favorite programs to come on at a specific time; they can view them whenever and wherever they want to. There are no annoying commercials and it's easy for kids to navigate and for parents to control. The content is fun and engaging and encourages kids to learn at their own pace when watching programs such as Color with Leo(R).

"Our goal is to assist in molding the next generation of artists and creative thinkers," Silva says.

Families have more entertainment choices today than ever. And children are watching more of their media on computers and mobile devices. Parents are rushing to find games and apps for kids to use. However most children's programs are animated and fantasy based. The few live action shows that are produced are heavily styled and over acted - presenting a vision of childhood that is slick and sassy. Many parents wonder where the kids are. Surely there must be an alternative to talking animals and 8 year olds who sound like they are 18. Beeswax Productions produced "Recess Stories" to fill this void - real kids acting real stories in short, funny episodes.

"Recess Stories" presents a realistic slice of life on the playground. The girls have messy hair and mismatched socks, the boys are good with a ball but confused by everything else, and nobody can agree on the rules for anything. "Recess Stories" is the only original live action comedy series for elementary school kids online. Like Peanuts there are no adults, like Seinfeld there is no story too small, and like The Little Rascals childhood is presented in all its scrappy chaos.

Creative team Shelley Latham and Kenton Jakub started Beeswax Productions to produce children's content that shows kids as they actually are - smart, funny, imaginative, caring, resourceful and engaging.

Latham believes that Recess Stories' quirky, addictive appeal stems from the fact that all of the episodes are based on real events: "We talked to dozens of people about their experiences on the playground and everybody has a recess story to tell. What was surprising to us going into this project was that most of the 'stories' that the kids told us involved small moments - the skinned knee, the perfect flip, the day a bug flew into an open mouth, the recess spent pretending to be a dog. What children find momentous can seem trivial to an adult, we wanted Recess Stories to reflect the child's point of view."

Latham also noted that none of the stories were about bullying which suggests that all is not bad news from the playground.

This positive approach to children's programming has struck a chord with kids, their parents, and teachers who have longed for videos that are funny but real, educational but entertaining, and engaging without being hyperactive.

Season Two features nine new episodes including:
* The Bob & Fred War about boys fighting over which name is better;
* Believe It of Not about a girl who can't help stretching the truth over and over again;
* Mr. Pebbles about some boys who adopt a rock as their mascot and the girls that torment them.

All episodes are based on true stories.

"Recess Stories" was shot entirely on a playground in a small town in Maine. Each episode is a complete story lasting between 2-4 minutes long and features a rotating cast of 40 kids. In addition to streaming at www.RecessStories.com, YouTube, Vimeo, Blip and iTunes, Beeswax Productions has partnered with Yahoo!Kids for an exclusive one week premiere of Season Two episodes and has released Season One as part of the commercial free lineup on the subscription platforms for kids at AmebaTV and Kidobi.

Author: LightRow Pictures
Dateline: Los Angeles, California (LOS ANGELES, Calif.)  | Tue, 23 Aug 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Rugged and relentless stuntman and Award Winning Italian-born actor, and martial arts expert Zak Lee Guarnaccia will next appear on September 7, 2011 as the lead role, Pancho Villa on 'Deadliest Warrior season 3' on Spike TV.”



A R T I C L E:

Rugged and relentless stuntman and Award Winning Italian-born actor, and martial arts expert Zak Lee Guarnaccia will next appear on September 7, 2011 as the lead role, Pancho Villa on 'Deadliest Warrior Season 3' on Spike TV.

Pancho Villa was one of the most important Generals during the Mexican revolution; a hero to some, a villain to others, but definitely an important part of Mexican history whom no one will forget.

Zak is an Executive Producer/CEO of LightRow Pictures, which recently signed a deal to Co-produce with Bella Fe Films an animation project titled "Magnum Farce." The project, co-created by the Award Winning filmmaker, writer, director and producer Ken Mora, is a spoof of the "Dirty Harry" films starring Clint Eastwood. Zak and LightRow's other project is the action feature film, "Rules" (http://www.rulesfilm.com) which has been released in the U.S. market via self-distribution and is available at many outlets including Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble, Target, Sears, and Best Buy.

Now LightRow Pictures (http://www.lightrow.com) is ready to enter into pre-productions on one of two projects currently in development. The first is titled "The Cook and The Thief" (http://www.facebook.com/TheCookandTheThief), a fast paced slapstick action comedy written by Ken Mora. It will feature Zak Lee Guarnaccia as an Italian Jackie Chan along with a dash of an Italian attitude thrown in for spice. The second project is titled "The Next Big Hit," featuring a unique and brilliant concept of a martial arts musical comedy. Celebrities already interested in appearing in the project include; Mr. Russell Wong ("The Mummy," "Romeo Must Die" and "Joy Luck Club") and Mr. Lou Ferrigno ("The Hulk"). Zak Lee Guarnaccia is well experienced on both sides of the camera, and possesses a strong, functional understanding of how to deconstruct action, thanks to his unique and inventive vision. There is no slowing down Zak as he continues to work and collaborate as an actor, fight choreographer and stuntman in various Film and TV projects.

New Pro Sport Explodes Across Arizona as Semi-Finals Begin Airing

Author: Sky Ball League
Dateline: Los Angeles, California (LOS ANGELES, Calif.)  | Fri, 19 Aug 2011

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “The growing popularity of Sky Ball has prompted the formation of a new pro league - the Sky Ball League. As semi-finals begin to gain the attention of sports fans across the country, Fox Sports Arizona is set to air the semi-final playoffs, which were shot in L.A., August 20 and 27 (check local listings for times) between the Tampa Dragons and the Los Angeles 405s.”



A R T I C L E:

The growing popularity of Sky Ball has prompted the formation of a new pro league - the Sky Ball League. As semi-finals begin to gain the attention of sports fans across the country, Fox Sports Arizona is set to air the semi-final playoffs, which were shot in L.A., August 20 and 27 (check local listings for times) between the Tampa Dragons and the Los Angeles 405's. The team members consist of males and females who were selected from hundreds of hopefuls to compete in the first season of this up-and-coming next generation coed sport.

The four teams that were formed and competed in the first season of Sky Ball League (www.skyballleague.com) are the Tampa Dragons, Austin Starz, Youngstown Ballers and Los Angeles 405s. The final episode in the series will feature the remaining two teams standing, who will compete in the Tournament of Champions in Los Angeles. This final smackdown determines who gets the winner's purse of $40,000.

Brian Dunkleman, one of the original co-hosts of American Idol, hosts the 16 episodes in the Sky Ball League series, which was created by Brian Kessler, who designed the Sky Ball, and sports executive Danny Swartz. "Sky Ball is an energetic combination of basketball, baseball and volleyball, with a little lacrosse thrown in," says Kessler. "The game uses Sky Balls and smash gloves and is played on a court with goals set at each end that consist of three scoring pads 12 feet to 17 feet high."

Slightly larger than a softball and constructed of a special combination of plastic and rubber material that is pumped with oxygen and helium, Sky Balls are capable of bouncing up to 75 feet. "Besides the requisite physical dexterity, the challenge to players," says Swartz, "is that they must not only excel in controlling the ball, but the skillful manipulation of a challenging piece of equipment."

"Age knows no bounds," Kessler adds. "Across the league, this season's players range between 18 and 39, and neither age nor gender has made a bit of difference on how well anyone plays."

While the first season's tryouts attracted almost a thousand hopefuls, since Sky Ball League started airing this summer, over 4,000 requests have come in for next season's tryouts. Sky Ball League expects to significantly expand the number of teams participating in 2012.
