Here's Something You Didn't Know the 2017 Golden Globe Winners Won

NEW YORK, NY, USA, January 18, 2017 / — The 2017 Golden Globe Awards kicked off this year's awards season, with an average of twenty million viewers tuning in, according to Nielsen. Audiences heard the speeches and applause, the music and the laughter, they saw the celebrities decked out in tuxedos and ball gowns.

But what the audiences didn't see, was how the nominees were presented with delightful gifts worthy of royalty.

Earlier, in the privacy of their hotel rooms, Meryl Streep, Casey Affleck, Hugh Grant and Jessica Chastain, among others, were treated to exclusive "Red Carpet" gift boxes filled with luxury items as congratulatory gifts honoring them from the five-star Beverly Hills hotel where they were guests.

Among the international array of high-ticket goodies included in the box featuring fashion, fine wine and jewelry, one gift in particular has a rather unique history. It's for a portrait from artist-photographer G.E. Masana, who regularly commands commissions $5,000 and upwards for his work.

Masana, who grew up in the 60's – 70's, trained in NYC art schools studying painting and illustration under some of New York City's most notable exhibiting painters as a teenager. With a career in commercial illustration as a goal, some of his teachers harkened back to the original "Mad Men" of commercial artists whose work graced the covers of Colliers and Harper's Magazine, and iconic advertising campaigns.

"It was a classic era of craftsmanship," notes Masana. "Those artists created masterful illustration with technique so honed it seemed a modern day incarnation of sixteenth century Italian Renaissance painters. Walking through the halls of the Society of Illustrators as a kid was as inspiring to me as walking through any art museum in the city."

Masana is a living link to that Golden Age of Artists.

Though celebrities have been in front of his camera before, he'd love to see who else calls on him for a portrait. "I've already imagined photographing Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling," says Masana. "These stars have all been photographed numerous times as celebrities. What's different is I'm visualizing crafting an art piece for them and their family to enjoy on a quiet, personal level."

Masana's signature mix of dramatic photography with painterly touches is influenced by works of the classic Masters of Art through the ages he's studied, such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, John William Waterhouse, among others. So, Amy Adams, Viola Davis, Jeff Bridges… note this. "My portraits are like owning a Rembrandt, but better," quips Masana with a wink. "You actually know the person in it."

Award Winning Author Announces Completion of First Ever Twitter Mystery Novel Trilogy

A Twitter Mystery

Robert K. Blechman announces the release of "I Tweet, Therefore I Am", a laugh-out-loud comic mystery novel originally posted in real-time tweets on Twitter.

I Tweet, Therefore I Am is not only a paean (not pain) to Twitter, but to mystery and time-travel stories as well, bringing us: twisted palindromes; just desserts spelt or spelled backwards

I Tweet, Therefore I Am
by Robert K. Blechman
“Though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply.”
I Tweet, Therefore I Am, a laugh-out-loud comic mystery novel originally posted in real time tweets on Twitter launches as a Kindle eBook on Monday, January 16, 2017. A creative innovator of the Twitter Fiction movement, Robert K. Blechman's novels are live-tweeted mystery narratives, now gathered into book form. I Tweet, Therefore I Am is compelling, entertaining, and shows off what can be done in the 140-character form with style and mastery. With send-ups of the mystery genre, social media conventions and cell phone behavior, I Tweet, Therefore I Am is a cornucopia of word play and comic misdirection stuffed with punny dialogue, clever character conditions, and a total lack of adherence to the old "rules" of storytelling. Robert K. Blechman's delight in the language shows in every tweet – that is to say, every thread of the story. His plot is tight, tingling, and diverting.
The three books of The Twitstery Twilogy (ie. Twitter Mystery) depict the exploits of the world's only tweeting detective, unreliable narrator that he is. He tweets his experiences in real time, and the fact that he tells his story in tweets, that is 140 characters at a time, shapes his interpretation of the crimes he investigates.
About the Author
Robert K. Blechman graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in English Literature and earned an MBA in finance and a Ph.D. in Media Ecology from New York University. He has held senior technology management positions at such iconic institutions as Columbia University Medical Center, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, HarperCollins Publishers, Olympia & York Real Estate Management, and CBS News and teaches courses in communication and media studies at Fordham University.
I Tweet, Therefore I Am was preceded by national best selling Twitter novel Executive Severance, Book 1 of the Twitstery Twilogy (NeoPoiesis Press, 2011) which won The Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fiction and by The Golden Parachute, (Kindle eBook, 2016).

"I Tweet, Therefore I Am is not only a paean (not pain) to Twitter, but to mystery and time-travel stories as well, bringing us: twisted palindromes; just desserts spelt or spelled backwards; meditations on "dreeting" or "tweaming" which happens when sleep tweeting; and not just Farley but also Stuart Granger (stranger than true but true). And there are lots of memorable music references, too, including "Torn Between Two Lovers," one of my all-time favorite lame songs.  
But there's nothing lame about I Tweet, Therefore I Am.  Read and enjoy, and do keep in mind its injunction that ‘though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply.’”
— Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates, Loose Ends, and Ian's Ions and Eons.
"The genre of Twitstery, established by Robert K. Blechman in his Executive Severance, turns to Phantwitsmagoria in the final book of his trilogy, I Tweet, Therefore I Am. A detective story written in tweets takes readers into a crazy voyage to a mystic Caribbean island, somewhat reminiscent of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau with an odd campus on it. This is most likely the only detective novel in the world, literally (oh, yes, twitterally) stuffed with Marshall McLuhan quotes. Adepts will appreciate the play of allusions, while detective novel fans will just enjoy the story full of irony and witty puns."
— Andrey Miroshnichenko, author of Human as Media: The Emancipation of Authorship.

Graphic Designer Jiping Liu Lends her Skill to 'Sea of Mirrors' and 'Successor of the Southern Star'

Graphic Designer Jiping Liu designs the graphics for the the highly anticipated films "Sea of Mirrors" and "Successor of the Southern Star"

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, January 10, 2017 / — Using her expertise as a graphic designer and vast understanding of what catches an audience's attention when it comes to a film's story, Jiping Liu has been tapped as the graphic designer for the upcoming films "Sea of Mirrors" and "Successor of the Southern Star."

Directed by Thomas Lim ("The Rat-Ox Diaries," "Roulette City") "Sea of Mirrors" is a psychological thriller that follows former actress Riri Kondo, played by Kieko Suzuki ("Mari," "The High School Samurai Boy"), who finds herself on the brink of insanity as she travels to Macau in search of her kidnapped daughter.

For the title design of "Sea of Mirrors" Liu chose to use mellow fonts to represent the delicate and beautiful female form of the film’s lead character juxtaposed against sharp edges and corners to represent the darker elements within the film’s story.

"Sea of Mirrors" director Thomas Lim says, "Jiping Liu is a graphic designer with extraordinary creativity and skill. Her designs are amongst the best and most unique I've seen and her talents are right up there with the best."

In stark contrast to "Sea of Mirrors," Liu was also the lead graphic designer for the upcoming comedy film “Successor of the Southern Star” from director Maytus Chernipipat. Starring Young Artist Award winner Nicholas Neve ("Broken Horses," "Boonville Redemption"), Jongman Kim ("Eye for an Eye," "Punch") and Ben Berger ("Manifesto," "My Crazy Ex"), "Successor of the Southern Star" follows Bruce, a comic fan who gave up on his dreams of being a superhero long ago only to find himself bringing his kungfu skills back into practice in order to save the innocent bystanders caught in the middle of a mini mart robbery.

Drawing on the comedy elements within the film, as well as the main character's boyhood dreams of becoming a superhero, Liu designed the poster for the "Successor of the Southern Star" using an image of the main character's childhood self dressed in a batman costume. With a keen eye for color and the necessary knowledge of the way it impacts the audience, Liu's use of color in her film poster designs is unparalleled. For "Successor of the Southern Star" she incorporated contrasting red and yellow colors into her poster design, which brings to mind ideas of classic superhero films.

"Successor of the Southern Star" director Maytus Chernipipat says, "Liu is such a talented designer! Her work always reaches beyond my expectation."

While Liu has designed posters for an impressive range of international film productions over the last few years, one area where she’s had the most success is designing posters and presentations for Chinese-American co-productions.

Originally from Beijing, China Liu's understanding of the both the American and Chinese film industries, and the similarities and differences between the two, has made her a key creative force for Alpha Pictures, an American based film production company founded by China’s leading pan-entertainment company Alpha Group.

"I love designing for film, especially contributing to cross-cultural projects between China and America, because I get to bridge the two styles, for example Chinese design has many traditional elements to it whereas the American style is a bit more wild and creative, so it’s fun to combine the two in a unique way that reaches both audiences," explains Liu.

As the lead graphic designer for the company, Liu's skill as a designer coupled with her ability to liaise between the two cultures has made her an integral contributor in the process of creating visuals that capture the vision of both the Chinese and American producers at Alpha Pictures. Beyond this, her understanding of what appeals to the audiences in the two countries has proven to be a vital asset when it comes to designing posters that get the attention of viewers despite the obvious differences between language and culture.

Last year Liu gained international success as the writer, director and graphic designer of the film "She Gives Me Sight," which took home several awards at the Hollywood Boulevard Film Festival, Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival, Direct Short Online Film Festival and the LA Underground Film Festival.

As Liu continues to garner attention in Hollywood for her captivating graphic design work for film, her profile in China has also continued to rise. Last month the Hebei official newspaper, Yanzhao Dushi Bao, published an in depth feature article titled "Shijiazhuang girl will walk the Red Carpet in Hollywood," which focuses on Jiping Liu's successful transition into the American film industry, a story that undoubtedly serves as an inspiration for many.

As Liu continues her work as a graphic designer on several new films from Alpha Pictures, as well as the prepares for the upcoming release of "Sea of Mirrors" and "Successor of the Southern Star," audiences in both China and the U.S. can bet on seeing a whole lot more from graphic designer Jiping Liu.
