The 2018 Tony Awards Celebrate Live Theater and Life

     Today the American Theatre Wing brings us the 2018 Tony Awards, a celebration not only of the best plays and musicals on Broadway, but of all live theater across the globe and its importance to the human soul. No other art form demands its participants to have the voice of an Angel, the body of an Olympian, the dance skills of Baryshnikov, the visual ascendancy of a Master Painter, the writing skills of a Doctorate, the style of an International Celebrity and the heart of a Spiritual Leader. I am especially grateful to all the people I trained with, my teachers and peers who remain positive influence in my life via Facebook, Twitter and Google+. To everyone I have had the privilege to put on my dancing shoes and perform a Broadway musical with, Thank You. And Thank You to Everyone who dares to keep coming back, to create and better this world through the medium of Live Theater.

Daring WAR OF THE WORLDS Movie Is Taking Over Amazon Prime

Most Popular Movies on Amazon Prime: 

War of the Worlds The True Story

Streaming Free with Amazon Prime membership.

The memoir of the last living survivor of the Earth/Mars War of 1900 during the apocalypse at the hands of terrifying alien invaders.

What if the Earth/Mars battle from H.G. Wells' classic novel The War of the Worlds wasn't fiction but actually fact? That's the story of WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY, one of 208 contenders for the 85th Academy Award Oscars, including consideration for best adapted screenplay, best editing and best original score. Like the famous 1938 Orson Welles radio broadcast that caused Americans to believe an actual invasion was in progress, the movie assumes an Earth/Mars War actually occurred in the year 1900 and is presented as the eyewitness memoir of journalist Bertie Wells, the last living survivor as he struggles to find his wife amidst the destruction of humankind at the hands of terrifying alien invaders.

"War of the Worlds The True Story is clever like Wells. Hugely inventive and ambitious, a mock sci-fi docudrama packed with a truly impressive — and clever — mix of editing (a reported 3 1/2 years' worth), special effects, visual artistry and offbeat storytelling."  Critic Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times
"Impressive for its technical achievements...Director/Editor Hines weaves the various styles of footage together in expert fashion."
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

Steven Rose Jr. of the Examiner gave the movie 5 out of 5 stars and said, “’The True Story’ carries the suspense and drama of both the 1953 movie and Spielberg’s 2005 version but in a more realistic manner through its documentary style.”

“The aliens are unsettling, with bright, evil eyes and writhing tentacles. The designs of the tripods and the aliens are much truer to the book than other versions," said reviewer Tristan Hiegler of the PT Leader
The movie uniquely uses Cutting Edge Visual Effects to blend a modern cast with Battalions of Actual Fighting Soldiers, Golden Age Movie Stars, and previously undisclosed images of Tentacled Alien Creatures and their 10-Story High, 3-Legged Fighting Machines.

Independence Day Eve

I LOVE the 4th of JULY!

This evening I am enjoying the paradise weather of Westside Los Angeles and contemplating my resolve as a filmmaker artist on the Eve of July 4th. 240 years ago tomorrow, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence and the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, declaring the United States independent from Great Britain rule, hence the Fourth of July becoming America's birthday: Independence Day.
I'm re-reading the Declaration of Independence and keep going over the first line:
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

I realize director Timothy Hines speaks as eloquently as our founding fathers. I am so thankful to create with Tim, a true creative genius.

I realize Nellie Bly found it necessary to dissolve the perception of women as toss-away human beings in 1887 and her expose 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE catapulted positive reform for mental health care and the treatment of women, thus Bly being named one of the original feminists.

I realize I LOVE being an artist and conveying stories through film. I truly live in the greatest place on Earth to be a filmmaker. Just like our founding fathers I BELIEVE...which is the beginning of all greatness. Happy Fourth of July!

While there, she experienced firsthand the shocking abuse and neglect of its inmates, from inedible food to horrifyingly unsanitary conditions.Ten Days in a Madhouse is Bly's expose of the asylum. Written for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, Bly's account chronicles her ten days at Blackwell's Island and, upon its publication, drew public attention to the abuse of the institutionalized and led to a grand jury investigation of the facility. Ten Days in a Madhouse established Bly as a pioneering female journalist and remains a classic of investigative reporting.
