New Animated Short Film for the New Adventures of Adam and Marky in The Forest's Dark Secret

Ginzburg Press' latest new short animated scary movie for kids is now streaming on Amazon Prime video.

In the Forest's Dark Secret, Marky has been kidnapped, and his friend Adam must overcome his fears to rescue him. Join our heroes as they learn of the terrifying secret danger hidden in the forest that only they can stop.

This is the second episode in our hero's new adventure which takes place in a computer gaming generated world crafted by our talented and dedicated gamers. Our two heroes, Adam and Marky, are brought to life in this delightful tale about monsters, zombies and a wicked witch that will thrill and excite children of all ages.

The story begins with Adam and Marky playing together in a dark and ominous forest. Adam hears a strange sound coming from the woods. As it's getting dark Adam wants to go home but Marky insists they continue playing their game. Suddenly without warning the boys separate. Something grabs Marky. It looks like a zombie and it's too powerful to resist. Adam watches Marky get kidnapped and remains hidden behind a tree. Adam decides to go home and get some help to rescue his friend Marky.

Our story then begins with Adam's futile attempts at convincing his father that Marky is in trouble and he needs their help!

The center of the story explores how these two dedicated friends always depend and rely on each other to survive.

This short film is unlike most animated movies seen today that are created with complicated graphics programs employing exaggerated action motions and over the top special effects. This film was produced in a gaming engine from an ultra-popular computer game in real time.

Dreadnotx, the director and lead animator of the film, said, "Kids of all ages totally love playing the Minecraft game. They are completely absorbed in the player vs player realm that is unique to Minecraft. We've extended our film to the next level by creating inspiring stories between two friends who will stop at nothing to save each other even when the going gets tough."

Watch now as our quirky heroes come to life in this exciting story complete with dramatic tension and scary monsters, and discover what new adventures await Adam & Marky.

Premier Electronics supplied the cameras for the diving teams at the 2016 Olimpics

The module provides HD 1920x1080/60/50/30/25 both i and p and 720p enabling it to be used with many platforms. SMPTE uses uncompressed video signals as the typical application involves movement of digital data over 75 ohm cables less than 100 meters long for SMPTE 292. SMPTE transmits data at a rate of 1.485Gbps. SMPTE has requirements for both timing jitter and alignment jitter. An FPGA with an SMPTE-capable transceiver must comply with both jitter standards, as well as the stringent parameters related to the amplitude and rise/fall times of the serial signals. In a typical solution, external components are used along with FPGAs to create an SMPTE-compliant solution. The primary pattern used to measure these jitter components is the 75% Intensity Colour Bar.

The module is enhanced with true day/night capability and a newly developed Wide Dynamic Range feature (80dB), ensuring the highest quality of video even in difficult viewing conditions. It can provide either HD 3G-SDI or HD-SDI on a BNC coax output, greatly reducing the installation costs whilst providing HD over coax. There are also analogue PAL/NTSC outputs if required. The module utilises the next generation 2.1 Mega pixel 1/3" Bayer CMOS AltaChrome A3372-4T, 12 bit imaging System on Chip technology that provides the highest HDTV image quality at maximum video rate, lowest power and lowest random noise currently available. The built in 20x optical zoom, f=4.7 to 94.0mm, which gives a field of view from 59.4° to 3.0°, add to this the digital x12 gives a total of 240x making the unit ideally suited for industrial and security applications providing flexibility and reliability of use. It offers very low light sensitivity achieving 0.02lux mono 0.5lux colour. Powerful control features provide, white balance, sync int/external, AE, flip/reverse images and 8 points privacy masking. It is powered from 6V to 13.5VDC, weighs 290g and size is just 50mmW x64.3mmH x88mm

Edvin Ortega, Keith Collins And Others Sign On To Emmy Winner Joseph Pepitone's New Series "The Deplorables"

Stephen Fontana, Penelope Lagos & Charles Goonan

           Award-winning team reunites for new comedy web series.

Diamond Jesus Productions announced today that production of the new comedy web series, The Deplorables will begin shooting late Spring and will be released on digital platforms in the Fall/Winter.
Millennial mailroom slacker Michael Cheevers dies and is sentenced to Purgatory, to work in …the mailroom. There he meets his flirtatious manager, a demoted St. Peter, a disgruntled secretary and the Boss’ Son (Jesus). Together this dysfunctional team must stop a greedy real estate developer from taking over Purgatory and deporting them to Hell.  But can these snowflakes actually work hard to stop him or will they  just complain?
The Deplorables is based on the film Stuck in the Middle, which won Best Comedy Feature at the Atlantic City Cinefest Film Festival. Stars Stephen Fontana and Penelope Lagos reprise their award-winning roles. Keith Collins (“The Evangelist”), Edvin Ortega (“Orange is the New Black”), Evonne Walton (“The Jersey Devil”) and Charles Goonan (“Smokers”) have signed on with more names to be announced soon.
The Deplorables was created by two-time Emmy winner Joseph Pepitone. The eight-episode arc was written by Joseph and his brother Billy.  “I’m really excited to be heading back to Purgatory with some old friends and some new ones,” said Joseph.  “The Deplorables is going to deal with some new issues that Stuck in the Middle didn’t and our goal is to make Purgatory great again. And since no one from Purgatory has told me of the conditions there, I think we can do it.”

Orbison Films And 449 Productions Option The Beatle Who Vanished

 Ashley Hamilton's 449 Productions and Alex Orbison, on behalf of Roy's Boys Films, have optioned the rights to The Beatle Who Vanished from author Jim Berkenstadt who is known in music circles as the "Rock and Roll Detective®." The two will serve as Executive Producers along with Berkenstadt on the project that delves into a heretofore-unknown chapter in Beatles' history that was chronicled in Berkenstadt's book The Beatle Who Vanished (, first published in 2013. It is expected that the property will take the form either of a feature film or TV streaming series.

Jimmie Nicol's life changed on June 3, 1964 when he received a call from a desperate George Martin who asked if the drummer could stop everything and go out on the Beatles' first world tour, conditional on his passing an audition. He would replace Ringo Starr who has been stricken with tonsillitis and pharyngitis and had been admitted to Middlesex University Hospital. The very next day, the tour departed for Denmark, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand with Nicol spending two weeks as a Beatle, both onstage and off. After Ringo recovered and rejoined the group, Nicol, for all intents and purposes, vanished. Drummer/producer Butch Vig, who has worked with Paul McCartney, Nirvana, Foo Fighters and Garbage called The Beatle Who Vanished "a fascinating and mysterious read for anyone who wants to understand the meteoric rise to pop stardom and subsequent crash landing."

Hamilton commented, "We are thrilled to be partnering with Jim Berkenstadt to expand his vision to another medium and expose a whole new audience to his riveting and previous untold Beatles' story." Orbison added, "It's a truly compelling story of the man who rescued the Beatles' first world tour from disaster. He spent his 15 minutes of fame by the age of 25 then seemingly vanished. This is a story that is both intimate and epic." Orbison and Hamilton are hoping to foster the creation of an unprecedented soundtrack that will re-create the music from the Beatles' tour with Nicol and from his entire musical career.

Paul McCartney summarized the enigma that was Jimmie Nicol: "It wasn't an easy thing for Jimmie to stand in for Ringo, and have all that fame thrust upon him. And the minute his tenure was over, he wasn't famous anymore."

During the tour, McCartney was aware of the pressure that Nicol was under and would inquire as to how he was getting on. Putting on a brave face, Nicol's stock response was, "It's getting better," the recurring comment providing the inspiration for the Sergent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band track "Getting Better." Unfortunately, the opposite would hold true with Nicol. After his 13 days of fame were over, the true mystery of Nicol's story was riddled with blacklisting, betrayal, substance abuse, bankruptcy and an eventual disappearance that has led many to question whether he is dead or alive. He had become a mysterious footnote in Beatles history until Berkenstadt began his research.

Berkenstadt is the author of Classic Rock Albums: Nirvana – Nevermind (with Charles Cross) as well as Black Market Beatles: The Story Behind the Lost Recordings (with Scott Belmo Belmar). He is founder of Rock and Roll Detective® LLC, a company dedicated to providing production, publishing, writing, research, social media and content creation for the entertainment industry. He has consulted to the late George Harrison, the Beatles and Martin Scorsese.

Ashley Hamilton is an actor/singer/comedian and longtime friend of Alex Orbison and his family; he is the son of actors George Hamilton and Alana Stewart. Orbison is one of the principals of Roy's Boys LLC, the Nashville-based family company owned by the sons of Roy Orbison to administer their father's catalog and safeguard his legacy. Alex Orbison served as both Executive Producer and writer of the recent Mystery Girl – Unraveled documentary. It should be noted that the Beatles, with Ringo on board, were Roy Orbison's opening act on a 21 date UK tour in 1963. Years later Orbison would collaborate with the Beatles' George Harrison as well as Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne in The Traveling Wilburys.
