When the drug war hits home, the tables are turned in the explosive action-thriller S.W.A.T.: UNDER SIEGE, available to own on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital August 1 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. In the latest high-octane adventure in the S.W.A.T. franchise, LAPD’s Special Weapons and Tactics team (S.W.A.T.) must defend their compound from a series of assault units seeking to recover a mysterious prisoner with ties to a powerful drug cartel.

Lisa Chandler plays Phoenix, a tough S.W.A.T. officer who considers her team family members in S.W.A.T.: UNDER SIEGE. Phoenix is a “tough chick” who loves to crack the dirty jokes with the gang and stops at nothing to carry out a fully completed mission, even if that means being bold and taking one for the team. Lisa also completes the stunts for her character.

Starring Sam Jaeger (TV’s “Parenthood,” American Sniper), Adrianne Palicki (TV’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” John Wick) and Michael Jai White (Never Back Down series, The Dark Knight), S.W.A.T.: UNDER SIEGE features hard-hitting performances, hair-trigger suspense, and intense combat and gunfight sequences action fans won’t want to miss.

From Anne Hathaway to Charlize Theron and a host of many others in-between, Lisa’s career has enabled her to work with some of Hollywood’s A-list actors. Lisa is a multi-talented performer who switches gears from stunts to acting, and incorporates the two depending on the role. In Tully,she worked with Oscar Award winner Charlize Theron where she performed water stunts. She doubled Margaret Qualley on the thriller film Death Note, as well as Elizabeth Lail on Dead of Summer.

As Vancouver stunt actor Lisa, is currently extremely busy with roles on Supergirl doubling Chyler Leigh and The Crossing doubling Natalie Martinez. Lisa plays seducer, Mary Lou Henchy, in the newly anticipated Netflix series Altered Carbon which is set in the future where consciousness is digitized and stored in cortical stacks implanted in the spine, allowing humans to survive physical death by having their memories and consciousness "re-sleeved" into new bodies.

If you have watched Once Upon a Time, Man in the High Castle, Bates Motel, Fifty Shades Darker, Britney Ever After or Aftermath, you have seen Lisa’s stunt work in action. Lisa also stunt doubled for Rose Marie DeWitt on the spine-chilling horror film Poltergeist, in which she also got to work alongside Sam Rockwell. Lisa has also been a part of many Lifetime and Hallmark films and is a regular with the Supernatural team working with Jared Padalecki and Jenson Ackles ‘fighting them and demons’ for over 17 episodes.

Lisa’s acting credits also include Lucifer, Reign, Motive, Signed, Sealed, Delivered, Lost Without You, and Random Acts of Romance, just to name a few.

Lisa’s workout is not your ordinary regimen. “As a stunt performer, training is 90% of the job and filming is 10%”, says Lisa. She trains in the water doing free-diving/scuba, film fighting, wirework, boxing, MMA and anything that challenges and prepares her for what may come. Lisa’s motto is “Anything is possible in the world of stunts so be ready”.

Lisa grew up in Kelowna, BC and Peterborough, Ontario, and now resides in Vancouver, BC.

From The Headlines Of Tomorrow’s Papers Comes A Brave New Novel

Debut novelist Matthew Jones has just created an alarmingly insightful thriller which mirrors current political events in the U.S.A. and Russia

It’s a powerhouse thriller of the best kind, with a clear protagonist who, despite being a man from the shadows, you really relate to. ”

— The Book Reviewer

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2017 / — It would be easy to think that author Matthew Jones wrote this book just after the 2016 American elections. However, the book was already in progress as the Russians were allegedly weaving their webs through the campaign.
So, did he have some inside knowledge as to what was happening? Jones is not telling but what he does say, is that it’s not just coincidence.
Sicarius is the debut novel of author Matthew Jones and tells the story of a professional hitman whose latest target, a U.S Governor, is deeply muddled with Russian organised crime.
The book also touches on the widespread fear of terrorist attacks currently on the minds of most of the Western World.
Asked how he managed to create a story with such resonance to current events, Matthew said, “It’s difficult for an author to write without being affected by world events surrounding one. Widespread political corruption, terrorism and the ever encroaching surveillance of the population are impacting more and more on the lives of ordinary people. I just needed to add a central plot.”
Sicarius is already receiving high acclaim with the influential Book Reviewer describing it as “A powerhouse thriller of the best kind.” And the Book Blogger commenting, “It’s a story you’ll recognize but it’s well written and fast-paced.”
Sicarius is published by Mirador Publishing who seem to have built a reputation for launching a number of successful new authors. Sarah Luddington, Mirador’s Commissioning Editor said, “When this landed on our desks we were so stunned as to how current the subject matter. That we actually compressed our normal release schedule to accommodate it.”

Sicarius is on sale now and is available as both a paperback and eBook in all main formats.

Oprah Winfrey Network to Feature NC Charity on August 12

Visually Impaired Surf Camp 2017 – Courtesy of Star-News Media

World Premiere in North Carolina August 10

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC, USA, July 27, 2017 / — The Hero Effect, a one-hour documentary-series on the Oprah Winfrey Network, spotlights North Carolina’s Indo Jax Surf Charities on Sat., Aug. 12, at 10 AM. A world premiere and celebration will be in Wrightsville Beach on Thursday, Aug. 10, from 6 ‘til 9 PM, hosted and contributed by Blockade Runner Beach Resort.

Shot on-location in Wrightsville Beach and co-hosted by Super Bowl Champ Donald Driver and actress Emily Wilson, this episode documents a visually impaired surf camp, one in a roster of free camps designed by founder Jack Viorel to build self-esteem and empower medically fragile, special needs, and disadvantaged children.

The Hero Effect series was made in partnership with United Way Worldwide and shot in ten different communities across the United States. Available in over 80-million homes via OWN, each episode highlights a real-life story, showing the lives of ordinary people making extraordinary differences in their communities.

“Indo Jax Surf Charities uses the ocean as a classroom and surfing as a learning tool,” said Viorel. “We believe the ocean has unique healing properties with an ever-changing, unpredictable environment.

“Getting into the ocean and learning to surf, particularly special needs children, is a life-long lesson about stepping out of your comfort zone, into unpredictability, and removing limitations. Everything in life has a bit of fear. We teach the kids that it’s okay to be afraid.

“Our programs build higher self-confidence and teach a system children can apply to any situation or hurdle in the future. They leave with a formula to be more successful, conquer more challenges, and the ability to deal with fear,” said Viorel.

“I encourage anybody thinking about surf camp to go for it,” said Eric Stanley, parent of 11-year old Jaylen, who is unable to see and is courageously battling Juvenile Batten disease. “Jack and his team are great. They’re very patient and know how to work with kids. A parent does not have to worry…”

With programs in North Carolina, California, Nicaragua and India, the Indo Jax schedule includes camps specially formatted for autism, visual impairment, childhood cancer, cystic fibrosis, Boys and Girls Clubs, Children of Belarus, the Boys and Girls Home of Lake Waccamaw, inclusion camps, and special needs camps.

In 2017, Indo Jax Surf Charities will serve and assist about 1,000 children, at no charge. “We take on the responsibility of raising the money,” said Viorel. “Most families with medically fragile, special needs, or at-risk children are struggling to make ends meet.”

Contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations and corporate sponsors fund the surf camp programs. “United Health Care has supported the program for three years, The Jordan Spieth Foundation came on board last year, and this year Live Oak Bank joined the team,” said Viorel. “Blockade Runner Beach Resort has been a solid supporter.”

Alison Tyler in Batman vs Superman XXX

A Unique Perspective on Female Empowerment from the Star of Batman vs Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, July 26, 2017 / — Tall, curvaceous adult star Alison Tyler has penned a first-person essay for sexual wellness website, comparing her portrayal of Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, to Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the iconic superhero in the summer blockbuster movie, Wonder Woman.

“I was very excited when I heard there was a mainstream blockbuster Wonder Woman movie coming out, but I admit, I was disappointed when the news was released that Gal Gadot had been selected to play Wonder Woman,” wrote Alison. “The Princess of Amazons is supposed to be strong and bold and well, Amazonian, which means tall, voluptuous, curvy and all that good stuff.”

Alison recounts her own personal point of view in reviewing the highest-grossing movie this summer, not only as an adult entertainer and a fitness instructor, but also as a tall, awkward teenager in middle and high school.

“It wasn’t until I started getting into competitive in sports that I started to embrace my height, and once I started to embrace it, it became a feeling that was forever growing and evolving.,” wrote Alison.

As the curvaceous beauty took charge of her entertainment career and her education, Tyler sought out new adventures around the world. From humanitarian work to more personal journeys seeking a new perspective on life Tyler has backpacked and studied the culture of more than 15 countries. In the fall of 2013, after launching a successful individual website with the Puba Network, Tyler took an interest and dedicated herself to the world of fitness and health. Having an athletic background this seemed a natural fit. Shortly after, Tyler obtained a Personal Trainers certification as well as education in nutrition. She has now set her sights on completing yoga courses to obtain her teacher certification which will further enable her to test the boundaries of the general public perception of adult models by diving into new entrepreneurial enterprises within the fitness industry.

250 years ago, in 1767, Captain Samuel Wallis discovered Tahiti. (By Corinne RAYBAUD.)

TAHITI, POLYNESIA, July 26, 2017 / — Corinne RAYBAUD, Doctor of History at the University Paris X Nanterre and Doctor of law at the University Montesquieu Bordeaux IV has focused her research activities on the history of Tahiti, Easter island and the islands of the eastern Pacific ocean. Her specialities are Easter island between 1862 and 1888 and the development of the law in eastern Polynesia from 1767 to 1945. Corinne Raybaud lives in Tahiti.
Her first book published in 1996 is dedicated to Easter Island. Since 2008, she wrote books based on her universitary works on Easter Island and polynesian laws and the Oceanic French Establishments during WWI (1914-1918). She is the co-author of two biographies on John Brander and Dutrou Bornier two influent people during the 19th century in the Pacific. In 2011, she published a historical novel today known as Cornelia which relates the story of a great tahitian family from the 19th century to nowadays. In 2012 and 2013 she wrote short stories about women in Tahiti where she narrated their brave and moving lives.
Her last book named " Wallis discovered Tahiti, 250 years ago in 1767" relates the circumnavigation of Captain Samuel Wallis on the Dolphin, the discovery of Tahiti then called "Island of King George III" and the first meeting between European navigators and Tahitian people. She had the project to make small movies about the arrival of the first navigators.
Samuel Wallis (1728-1795). In 1766, Samuel Wallis who had already served under Commodore John Byron became at 38 years old the captain of the HMS Dolphin. On June 19, 1767, he discovered Tahiti. Wallis decided to name the island of Tahiti after the King George III, who ruled Britain at that moment. After discovering Tahiti and lots of other islands in the Pacific he came back to England in May 1768. Even though he is not as famous as French Captain Louis Antoine de Bougainville and English Captain James Cook, Wallis was the one who first discovered Tahiti. When he came back to England he gave precious information to James Cook before he traveled across the Pacific and some men of his crew even sailed with Cook.
In 1767, Captain Samuel Wallis discovered Tahiti and anchored in Matavai Bay in the north of the island. He called the island "The Island of King George III"
Nine months later, in 1768 French Captain Louis Antoine de Bougainville arrived in Tahiti but anchored on the East coast (Hitia'a) and thought that he was the first to discover the island, and named it: "The New Cythera"
In 1769, Captain James Cook disembarked in Matavai in the same place where Samuel Wallis anchored, because Wallis came back to England just before Cook left forTahiti. He called the island : O'Taheite.
These circumnavigations lasted two or three years. There were dangerous. Scurvy was a painful and mortal disease and after these trips, captains used more oranges, limes, cabbage to save their crews.
For three years, 2017-2018-2019 we will celebrate in Tahiti the arrival of these famous explorers : Samuel Wallis in 1767, Louis Antoine de Bougainville in 1768, James Cook in 1769.

Australian Actor Artin John to star in upcoming Death Note Netflix blockbuster.

photo by Shimon

One of Australia's hottest new acting exports Artin John is set to star in Death Note, and prepares for two major upcoming lead roles.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 19, 2017 / — With just over a month left till Netflix releases it's highly anticipated Death Note US Adaptation to millions of viewers around the world; it's been confirmed that one of Australia's youngest most respected character actors Artin John, will be seen in the critical role of Anthony Skomal. Details of the role have been kept under wraps till now because of secrecy, John stating "while we can't reveal too much, the role certainly holds gravitas and is key to the Death Note Story". An inside source has confirmed that the studio didn't have the easiest time casting this role, "the studio required an extremely unique actor with a chameleon-like ability, and a heavy set of acting chops, to pull off the part successfully; which is why they ended up offering the part to John". There has been much speculation regarding the Manga adaptation, with John adding "I know there is a lot of hype, but I really think the fans will love what we have; and you can't go wrong with Willem Dafoe as Ryuk". Netflix has over 60 million subscribers from over 40 counties, so the release of Death Note, will be on of the largest cinematic releases of all time; John's involvement playing a key part in this.

John joins the Death Note action, starring alongside Hollywood A-List talent, Nat Wolff (The Fault in our stars), Keith Stanfield (Get Out), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Finding Nemo, Platoon); the film is directed by Adam Wingard (Godzilla vs Kong, Blair Witch), and is set to be released on August 25th. John states "this was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had on set, my character Skomal was a real thrill, and our second unit team led by Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun) was incredible. Jason really let us play".

One of Australia's highest regarded newspapers The Sunday Morning Herald, once called the 22 year old Bondi Sydney boy, "one of Australias most in demand, underrated actors", now aged 24, John has become one of Down Under's top thespian exports. Those in the industry who have worked with John have likened him to a young Pacino, De Niro, and Hoffman, with all the makings of a great character actor. John has accomplished notable success rather early in his career, having landed prominent roles on shows such as The X Files; where his critically acclaimed masterful portrayal of the lead role Shiraz, carried the episode Babylon, in front of a worldwide audience of tens of millions, a grand achievement in itself. The X Files Creator Chris Carter, and co-producer Gabe Rotter, were very pleased with John's performance, and the expert manner in which he handled such a delicate subject-matter; his work responsible for Babylon's critical and commercial success. John has also starred in shows such as iZombie, where he played Patrick Edward. iZombie director Michael Fields (Law & Order SVU) calling John "a very natural and subtle actor", encouraging members of CW's hit zombie dramedy crew to "keep their eye on this rising star". Fans will also recognize John from his comical genius on CW's Emily Owens M.D. as Intern Dr. Brian Matson, opposite Mamie Gummer. John was the youngest actor on the show to play a doctor at age 19; a Hollywood record, and mega distinguished achievement.

John is currently prepping for his lead roles on upcoming major motion pictures "Eleven Days of Hell", and "Druuna: Morbus Gravis", both directed by Hollywood VFX veteran, Marco Checa Garcia (Emmy win Game of Thrones, Oscar Nomination Iron Man 3, District 9, Captain America, Life of Pi), who is flying the flag for highly esteemed production company 2br02b productions. 2br02b productions is best known for the multi-award winning movie "to be or or naught to be", based on the famous short story by the great Kurt Vonnegut; which has been given the nod for an Oscar Nomination for Best Live Action Short at the 2018 Academy Awards, after having screened at two Academy Award Qualifying Festivals. To be or naught to be stars William B. Davis (The X Files Smoking Man, Artin John, Melissa Roxburgh (Star Trek Beyond, Valor) and Mackenzie Grey (Legion FX, Man of Steal). To be or Naught To Be was sound designed by BAFTA winning sound designer Martin Cantwell (Casino Royale, Kingsman Secret Service, Harry Potter). 2BR02B has turned into one of Hollywoods newest most esteemed companies.

Eleven Days,will be an epic bio-pic, based on the best selling autobiography by Yvonne Bornstein. It tells the story of the historic rescue of a husband and wife by the KGB and The FBI, marking the first time that the Russians and Americans were forced to partner up since the second world war. Bornstein is set to produce the project, which will ensure the success of the book be transferred to the movie. Checa Garcia explains "Eleven Days Of Hell is going to be one of the top films of the decade".

Druuna: Morbus Gravis, is set to be a great dystopian sci-fi cinematic experience, based on the famous Italian comics by mastermind author and artist Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri. Just like his "Eleven Days" project, Checa Garcia will be consulting with the original author throughout production, to ensure the success of the comics be conveyable to his movie. Director Checa Garcia calls the story "dark, intense, amazing", and goes on to praise John "there is a reason why I choose to work with this amazing actor time and time again; his talent and skill are a powerful force to be reckoned with". The synopsis is of a young girl who struggles to survive in a post-apocalyptic city where a terrible disease is threatening to annihilate all human beings. John is set to star in both of these features alongside Hollywood A-List talent.

John is represented by Luber Roklin Entertainment (Los Angeles) and McMahon Management (Melbourne Australia).
