PORNTIP BUI SIMON, FORMER MISS UNIVERSE & PRESIDENT
OF ANGELS WINGS FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL, WILL BE AWARDING 30
THAI AMERICAN STUDENTS FROM CALIFORNIA,
THE AWF THAI COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP

LOS ANGELES, CA July 5, 2018 –  30 years ago this June, Porntip Bui Simon, had her life changed forever as she was crowned Miss Universe 1988.  On this milestone Anniversary, Porntip Bui Simon, President of Angels Wings Foundation will be awarding 30 Thai students academic scholarships to further their education. Building on the success of the Angels Wings Thai Scholarship Program's inaugural year, which saw over 24 students of Thai ancestry receive educational support, Simon has expanded the 2018 Scholarship search beyond Los Angeles to the entire state of California.

“On the eve of my 30th anniversary of being crowned Miss Universe I was reminded of the virtue of investing and believing in others. In honor of those who believed in me when I was crowned Miss Universe at merely 19 years old, I will be awarding 30 AWF Thai Scholarships this year to an inspiring group of Thai students who I believe will go on to do great things,” said Porntip Bui Simon.

The Angels Wings Thai Scholarship program is dedicated to advancing the education of exceptionally promising Thai-American students who have demonstrated academic excellence, involvement in their Thai community, and the desire to continue their education. The 2018 recipients selected for the AWF Scholarship will receive $5,000 if attending city/community colleges and $10,000 for those attending 4-year colleges or universities. This year’s students have been accepted to Pasadena City College, Chapman University, Stanford, UCLA, UCSB, USC and UC Berkley to name a few.

Angels Wings Foundation will be hosting a celebration and awards ceremony in honor of these talented young scholars in Los Angeles on Saturday, August 4th, 2018 at the Montage Hotel located at 225 North Canon Drive, in Beverly Hills at 12:00pm.

“Angels Wings Thai Scholarship was created to offer more opportunity to ambitious Thai students with dreams of pursuing a higher education, but lack financial support. I experienced first hand what it was like as an immigrant child surviving in Los Angeles with well intended parents who barely spoke English. Education was my pathway to finding my place in the world. I want to pay it forward by providing a gift to these hardworking Thai families and an opportunity to well deserving Thai students who otherwise would not have the ability to soar to their potential.”
Angels Wings Foundation founder, Porntip Bui Simon

The 2019 Angels Wings Thai Scholarship program will begin at the first of the year.

"FERGUSON" The Musical headed to Los Angeles with Laurence Fishburnes' Mother; Ms. Hattie Fishburne

The Musical

w/Hattie Fishburne

WHILE AMERICA IS STILL FEELING THE STING…

12 MEN, DIFFERENT VIEWS, ONE TRIAL- It's a whole different story when it hits home”

— Peachanda Dubose

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The pain of African-Americans, unlawfully killed by police officers from NY to Tulsa Oklahoma, "FERGUSON" The Musical, The NAACP Award-winning production, loosely based on an incident from nearly 4 years ago, in Ferguson Missouri, is returning to the stage Thursday, July 19th, 2018 at the Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.

Moved by the events in Ferguson, DuBose, an NAACP Image, and Theatre Award-winning playwright decided to use her gift to help tell the story theatrically and musically in an effort to bring healing and awareness.

DuBose has added veteran actress and mother of the Oscar-nominated Laurence Fishburne, Ms. Hattie Crawford Fishburne to the cast of the all-male jury panel as a special guest delivering a cameo performance that is sure to leave her audience yearning for more.

The play was inspired by the murder of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed August 9, 2014, by police, sparking nationwide protests and civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. On November 24th of that same year, a grand jury decided not to charge Darren Wilson, the policeman who killed Brown. That news set off even more national protests.

The characters portrayed in this production had a troubled past growing up, and some people thought, "He had it coming," said the gifted playwright. "Ferguson: The Musical" is an all-male cast of veteran actors, singers, spoken word artists, and rappers. Most, who are serving as jurors trying to decide the fate of the white officer who killed this young man. Will he be found guilty? Or will he be yet another officer exonerated after killing a black citizen?

The dialogue at times is heated and intense from one of the court's deliberation rooms as they go over the young man's checkered past and the officer's possible future but, there is a twist in this playwright's script.

The award-winning production stars: DeJuan Christopher, NAACP Theatre Award Nominated-Alfred E. Rutherford, NAACP Award Winning-Jaimyon Parker, Cer Collins, ReShaun Groomes, Sidney George Ginyard, Shawn Turner, Marwan Granville, Britt Prentice, in addition to: PEACH Theatre Award winning-Malachi Rivers, Michael Higgenbottom, Mayan Industry Award winning-Darelle D. Dove, and "AMERICA'S GOT TALENT" Season 10 Finalists: Celebrity recording artists: Jeffery Lewis, & Zuri Craig "The Craig Lewis Band" all endow the audience with their stellar music, song, and spoken word performances!
Veteran actor Mr. Ernest Harden Jr. (of "White Men Can't Jump" and "THE JEFFERSON'S)" owns the stage with his electric stage presence, while leading Man Lamont, Young takes you on an unforgettable journey, with a compelling performance that you will never forget!

AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix Launch New Audiences to Help Marketers Reach Discovery Channel’s OTT “SHARK WEEK” Viewers

In this new infographic, AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix data highlights exactly who is behind the screen streaming SHARK WEEK content.

In this new infographic, AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix data highlights exactly who is behind the screen streaming SHARK WEEK content.

Two data leaders partner to identify people who stream SHARK WEEK content & digitally target them based on valuable demographic, lifestyle & spending behaviors

Together PeerLogix and AnalyticsIQ offer brands a unique opportunity to get in on the excitement and marketing opportunity a cultural phenomenon like SHARK WEEK delivers.”

— Ray Colwell, Chief Executive Officer of PeerLogix

ATLANTA, GA, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Predictive analytics and consumer marketing data innovator, AnalyticsIQ, and PeerLogix (OTCQB:LOGX), the established standard for tracking non-subscription based Over-the-Top (“OTT”) engagement data, announce today the launch of new SHARK WEEK digital audiences.

Premiering Sunday, July 22, Discovery Channel’s SHARK WEEK event celebrates its' 30th anniversary. And with many brands, including Swedish Fish candy by Mondelez International, Build-a-Bear, Walmart and vineyard vines, getting in on one of television’s biggest events, the new audiences created by AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix help advertisers reach these valuable SHARK WEEK fans beyond traditional linear TV advertising.

“At PeerLogix, we are focused on capturing and making sense of consumer streaming behavior – from movies to music – and even exciting television events like SHARK WEEK,” states Ray Colwell, Chief Executive Officer of PeerLogix. “By identifying and enriching what we know about these streaming audiences, together PeerLogix and AnalyticsIQ offer brands a unique opportunity to get in on the excitement and marketing opportunity a cultural phenomenon like SHARK WEEK delivers.”

Linear TV advertising during Discovery Channel’s SHARK WEEK event is an extremely powerful marketing tactic. This partnership’s new addressable audiences, however, make it possible for brands of all sizes and budgets to reach these viewers across digital and OTT channels, especially when they aren’t tuned into the live cable event. And for those brands already investing big in SHARK WEEK, these audiences also provide them the opportunity to extend their messaging across channels for a complete 360 degree consumer experience.

“By combining our powerful data, we have the opportunity to help advertisers not only reach, but also understand who those SHARK WEEK streamers are behind the screen,” stated Anna Brantley, Chief Revenue Officer of AnalyticsIQ. “We just launched a new infographic that tells a fantastic story about the types of audiences who are streaming SHARK WEEK content over-the-top – when and where works best for them. For example, our data highlights that over 78% of SHARK WEEK streamers are moderate to avid exercisers. That means an athletic apparel or fitness wearables company may find targeting these viewers to be incredibly valuable, even if they aren’t planning to reach them with a traditional TV ad during the shark-filled programming.”

The full infographic detailing the “jawsome” insights about these streaming audiences is available from AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix for download.

Starting today, advertisers, agencies and even programmers can connect with AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix to learn more about targeting the SHARK WEEK audiences, and how the companies can provide additional program specific audiences and insights. Contact sales@analytics-iq.com for more information.

Anthony J. Parkinson Named to Board of Escondido Innovations

Anthony J. Parkinson

Anthony J. Parkinson

Arizona-based business professional will add financial expertise to film company's profile.

Escondido’s films have consistently come out in the black. In a creative industry that’s also deeply competitive, that’s saying a great deal.”

— Anthony J. Parkinson

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Phoenix-based financier, mentor and international business professional Anthony J. Parkinson has been named to the board of Escondido Innovations, an Arizona-based film company whose most recent projects have been finding their place near the top of Hollywood feature releases.

Escondido has had a part in the production of nine films over the past ten years. Among them the box office giant John Wick (2014) and the dynamic musical Stuck (2017) which did very well on the film festival circuit last year.

“Escondido’s films have consistently come out in the black,” says Parkinson. “In a creative industry that’s also deeply competitive, that’s saying a great deal.”

After receiving his MBA from the Wharton Graduate School, Parkinson started his career on Wall Street at the investment firm that became Drexel Burnham Lambert, where he grew to be a key player in the halcyon days of leveraged buyouts and “highly confident” letters.

In the early 1980s Parkinson moved to London as Senior Vice President of Hasbro where he was responsible for European operations. While in England, he purchased Vicarage Jaguar, a company that came to create a new niche in luxury motorcars and acted as an advisor to Mohamed Al-Fayed at Harrods. Since that time, Parkinson has functioned as advisor, investor, owner or CEO of several successful firms.

At present, Parkinson is on the board of several organizations and privately held companies including the 50-year-old the Academy of Applied Science, which administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Math programs where students apply scientific knowledge to life, research and inventions. He is also Vice-Chairman of Urbix Resources, a premier provider of refined graphite powders, pristine graphene, specialty graphite products and clean tech purification.

Parkinson anticipates that his role with Escondido will be in a financial and advisory capacity. “I’m a numbers guy,” says Parkinson. “And I love new challenges. I know that Escondido will be giving me the opportunity to spend a lot of time with both.”

— Gordon Scott Venters

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — (EmergingGrowth.com Newswire – July 12, 2018) – EmergingGrowth.com, a leading independent small cap media portal with an extensive history of providing unparalleled content for the Emerging Growth markets and companies, reports on The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC Pink: MVES).

The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC Pink: MVES) just announced that through a distribution agreement with All Channel Films, Inc. Amazon.com, through its Amazon Prime Video on Demand (VOD) service, has agreed to release The Movie Studio, Inc.’s latest release “DANCING ON THE EDGE”.

Amazon Prime, Amazon’s premium streaming Video on Demand (VOD) service with over 80 million users has approved Dancing on the Edge to go live on July 16, 2018.

Dancing on The Edge was produced by Highland Light Productions.

The domestic VOD rights were facilitated and licensed by All Channel Films.

In February, The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC:MVES) www.themoviestudio.com announced that it has begun to monetize its content through a revenue share with Amazon.com as it prepares to launch its proprietary “Vu-Me” app.

Further, The Movie Studio has successfully ingested its motion picture content into its Vu-Me App. The Vu-Me App, developed by Lotus Research Inc. is an on-line aggregation platform for intended geo-fractured distribution, of it’s movie library and upcoming new releases. The Movie Studio, Inc. received correspondence by the Founder of Vu-Me that confirmed that final launch will be by August 31st 2018 with an App Store Optimization campaign.

The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC Pink: MVES) just announced pre-production of two wholly owned intellectual properties “Cause & Effect,” an action thriller and “PEGASUS” a horse power driven family story and the Companies signature film.

Historically, since 1979, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com horse featured films have grossed an average lifetime gross of $23 million.

The Movie Studio, Inc. intends to further monetize the aggregated assets of the Company, including its own original content as well as previously acquired networks and content from Emerging Media Corporation and Strategic Partners Ethos Media Network utilizing the new OTT platform. This is in addition to our recently announced Vu-Me App.

Through utilization of Amazon’s (NASDAQ: AMZN), Video on Demand (VOD) platform, The Movie Studio, Inc. will be streaming its bundled motion picture content across Amazon’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) on a revenue share basis.

MVES’s revenue share, subscription based digital media marketing will be accompanied with a “Win A Part” in a movie contest online on The Movie Studio’s website for upcoming Movie Studio feature film releases.

With a market cap of approximately $500,000.00 according to OTC Markets, MVES could be a Great Acquisition Target:

The Movie Studio, Inc. is positioned to be a great acquisition target for streaming providers that continue to invest billions of dollars in original content. Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX)’s content chief, Ted Sarandos, told Variety in an interview in August that the company “will spend $7 billion to $8 billion on content in 2018.” After successfully launching “Exposure” and “Bad Actress” on Amazon Prime, The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC Pink: MVES) has a proof of concept and launch pad for further original content distribution.

According to analysts at Statista, the global video streaming market is forecast to see revenues grow from $12.57 billion in 2017 to $18.65 billion by 2022, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.30%.

Through the acquisition of Emerging Pictures, The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC Pink: MVES) gained a network of 130 theaters and is working to secure licensing rights to distribute “up to” 1,800 movies in the catalog. This is a major step for the company, in what appears to be a potential parallel to Helios & Matherson’s (NASDAQ: HMNY) MoviePass, however The Movie Studio has access to legacy content, library content or new content “Owned” by The Movie Studio, Inc.

Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY): The company, which also owns and operates the popular MoviePass app, utilizes a subscription-based model that allows consumers to see one movie per 24 hours. The technology is available in 91% of the almost 40,000 theaters across the United States. HMNY has been on a free fall due to scripting prices not being able to cover the users cost of admission. This company needs a spark to ignite it.

MoviePass is a relatively similar concept to The Movie Studio, Inc.’s (OTC Pink: MVES) recent acquisition, Emerging Pictures and its ability to deliver commercial-grade video on demand services. The Movie Studio, Inc. (OTC Pink: MVES) now has a network of over 130 theaters in the US, with the rights to distribute over 1,800 movies. As of December 2017, Helios and Matheson Analytics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) has a market cap of $113.6 million and a share structure consisting of 12.44 million shares outstanding and a float of 5.02 million shares. During the third quarter 2017, the company reported total revenue of $1.17 million and a net loss of $43.46 million.

The Accent Coach Discusses the Dangers in How Media and Hollywood Portray Accents

Claudette Roche is a dialect coach who teaches accent reduction. She teaches foreign and American accents to actors and business persons/executives. In 2010 she was named as one of The Top 5 Voice Coaches by Hollywood Weekly Magazine.

Accents often have stereotypes attached to them. Hollywood has capitalized on this idea and created characters that fit with people’s ideas of accents

VERO BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Accents often have stereotypes attached to them. Hollywood has capitalized on this idea and created characters that fit with people’s ideas of accents, according to Claudette Roche, the Accent Coach. Everything from cartoons to dramas and adventure films to romances have characters from all over the world, but one thing many of them have in common is how they portray certain people based on their accents. The messages that viewers receive could be dangerous for people in real life.

Many times, villains are played by characters who have a more guttural accent. For example, Germans and Russians are often the bad guys while Mexicans are the gangsters or street thugs. Even those within the same country may be cast in different roles based on the region where they come from. A person with a Southern accent may be given a comedic role where they mess up or have a mishap that sets the plot. The underlying message is often that they are less intelligent than their peers. The heroes are often American, but they may be British or Australian as well. These accents are popular with more viewers and often carry a positive image for fans.

Roche is concerned about the limits placed on actors based on their accents. In fact, many times, actors must hire an accent reduction coach to help them lose their accent so they can be cast in more roles. A British actor may work to sound “more American” so they can get the lead in popular films. In other cases, an accent may be made more pronounced to enhance a character role because it fits with the stereotyped image.

“Often a person speaks in a heavier accent to appear different from the other characters,” Roche says. “The accent draws attention to them and whatever attribute the directors want them to portray.” She is concerned about the message this gives to people who originate from a specific region and have the same accent. They may begin to see themselves as dumb or incompetent or worry that others will reject them because of how they speak.

“It also enhances the stereotypes of other people when characters are portrayed in a certain way in Hollywood because of their accent,” Roche continues. “They may face ridicule and even hate just because of the way they talk.” The news media is often guilty of the same issue as they label people by their ethnicity in crimes or scandals. Roche believes that it only serves to expand the divide that often already exists between cultures. She would like to see more diversity in the roles given to people of various accents so viewers can see good and bad characters played by all cultures. Her hope as an accent reduction coach is that people will be able to look past the accent and see the person when they aren’t so easily identified by the way they speak. Hollywood is often the leader of change, and she hopes it can influence the way people look at different cultures by casting them in a more positive light.
