Rising Above Fest: Female Empowerment for Film, TV, Fashion, & Music at Regal LA Live Nov 10th Founded by Summer Moore

RAF's goal is to show that women deserve equal treatment & can accomplish amazing feats when they're helping each other & are supported, thus "Rising Above."

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, November 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Los Angeles, CA) The 2nd annual Rising Above Fest (RAF) & Film Fest LA (FFLA) join forces again as, “Two Festivals. One Mission” at Regal L.A. LIVE: A Barco Innovation Center. RAF debuted last year with great success! RAF is a female centric film festival created to empower women by way of the glamorous industries of: film, TV, fashion, & music. RAF’s goal is to showcase to the world that women deserve equal treatment & that they can accomplish amazing feats when they are supported & thus are “Rising Above.”

Founded by Summer Moore, actress/writer/producer, RAF seeks to create a call-to-action on the taboo topics of gender, age, & size inequality. Her motivation to create RAF was her belief that the only way to be happy is to help others, rather than focusing on only oneself (a radical mindset from what these industries traditionally have).

Powerful additions added to RAF this year are a celebrity panel: “Being Successful in a Male Driven World: How Women Rise Above” hosted by comedian/actress/writer, Lisa Ann Walter. Following the panel will be a screening with films made by women in power positions and a Q&A. Premieres for the fest will be Lisa Ann Walter’s trailer for her new comedy “Bitter,” directed by Lea Thompson and Summer Moore’s new horror trailer, “6 Feet Above,” (feature slated to be directed by Hellraiser II’s Tony Randel and with Oscar winning attachments).

RAF is also partnering with Girl Uplifters Team, a youth organization working to impact a change for females with several of Hollywood’s star child actresses involved and will be in attendance.

Farrah Abraham Accepts Plea Deal Stemming from Beverly Hills Hotel Lounge Incident in June

This type of crime is punishable one year in county jail and thousands of dollars in fines.”

— Seppi Esfandi

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 2, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Getting arrested and charged with Simple Battery and Resisting Arrest in Los Angeles, California can be a daunting ordeal for most average citizens. "This type of crime is punishable by up to one year in county jail and thousands of dollars in fines," said Beverly Hills Criminal Defense Attorney Seppi Esfandi. However, reality TV star Farrah Abraham avoided a jail sentence, as is the case with most first offenders guilty of such crimes, by pleading guilty to Resisting Arrest. As part of the deal she promises to complete 5 days of community service, 12 hours of anger management, and agreed to stay away from the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. In exchange the Los Angeles City Attorney agreed to dismiss the Simple Battery charge.

Some may recall the incident on June 13, 2018 where Ms. Abrahams was allegedly involved in a verbal altercation with other guests when the police were called, resulting in her arrest.

FansTime helps fans connect in a new way with the creators they love most

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, November 2, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — FansTime is putting the power in the hands of those that deserve it most: the fans. Welcome to Celebrity Stock. Backed with blockchain technology, FansTime has created a community that is empowering fans — allowing them to engage like never before with celebrities, influencers, and content creators alike. Fans can now support the creators they love by investing in them directly.

Celebrity Stock allows creators to have a direct relationship with their biggest fans. As fans show support and invest, they benefit with exclusive rewards and behind-the-scenes content. And as the creator’s career grows, so do the fans’ return on investment. Fans become investors, fandoms become money markets.

The original problem is that when a fan wants to show a support for a celebrity, there aren’t many options. They can see one of their movies, go to one of their concerts, or buy some of their merchandise. What many don’t realize — the celebrity will only end up seeing a fraction of what the fan paid upfront. Third parties have too much power and control between the celebrity and fans.

Celebrity Stock is another step FansTime has taken to empower the fans and creators. Through this community, fans can invest straight into celebrities themselves, getting rid of third parties taking their unfair share. Additionally, fans can now earn dividends and membership rewards on top of showing support for the stars they love. Even fans who think they have what it takes have a chance to become the star themselves!

FansTime is committed to elevating the fans and building relationships. Emerging celebrities, influencers and content creators also benefit in this ecosystem by being able to interact with their biggest contributors. Allowing fans to invest directly into creators puts a fair value on the creator’s intellectual property — meaning great content that stands out will enjoy the success it deserves.

This community is all backed by the FTI token, which is listed on major exchanges like Huobi Global, Gate.io, CoinEgg and Bit-Z.
How is celebrity stock good for FTI holders?
FansTime will draw 50% of the fees generated from Celebrity Stock listing and spend it on FTI buyback. 10% of the listing fees will be rewarded to the community members who have a big contribution to the FansTime App promotion.
Meanwhile, FansTime only accept FTI as the Security Deposit against risks may happen during the whole listing process. The total of the Security Deposit in FTI will be locked to open ERC20 addresses.

With Celebrity Stock, fandom is no longer a one-way street.

The voters have spoken and have chosen The Game Grumps and Lety Does Stuff as the new cast characters in the hilarious House Party game.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, November 2, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eek! Games today announced the winners who will join the zany characters in the House Party Game on PC.

Early October, Eek! invited ladies and men to audition to join the cast of their game, House Party. Over the past month, entrants posted profiles and pictures on the House Party site, and the gaming community was invited to vote for their favorite new additions to the cast. One lady and one gent would be selected as a cast member with their own custom avatars, appearing as regulars in the game.

The official ballot closed on Halloween evening at midnight, and The Game Grumps and Lety Does Stuff were declared victors in this exciting race. The winners will not only be immortalized in the game, but also take home a $1,000 cash prize.

“This is the next level of ground-breaking, user-based content and House Party is thrilled to have The Game Grumps and Lety does Stuff as in-game characters added to the mix. As far as we know, it’s never been done before. The fact that the winners are an amazing streamer and a House Party Cosplay model just makes it even more fun for everybody.” Said Bobby Ricci, CEO and Founder of Eek! Games.

The winners of the auditions are quite extraordinary in their own right. The Game Grumps, Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan have been YouTube streamers for many years with 4.8 million subscribers to their popular series. It was no doubt, a pleasant surprise to have such notable entrants as the eventual winners of the male auditions.
"House Party is a pretty legendary playthrough on the Game Grumps channel. We're hoping to add a little bit of the friendship-focused goofiness Game Grumps is known for to the game with Arin and Dan. Or, at the very least, add to the chaos of the party and get beaten up by Frank a bunch of times."

The female auditions winners is equally engrained in the video game industry and an accomplished streamer and influencer with her own successful YouTube channel. Lety Does Stuff has relished playing House Party for some time and could barely contain her excitement when she was notified of her win…
"Without exaggeration, I can proudly say that I have played House Party for the entirety of my adult life. This game has gone through its super awkward teen years with me, and I am so excited to join its now fully-developed cast of characters and storytelling to continue maturing alongside it. I'm just kidding— Lety's joining the party, this place boutta get turnt!"

The House Party game is expectedly risqué in nature and touches on topics of debauchery, sex and comedic fun between player and the therapy-needing cast. But as players have long since discovered, House Party is so much more…it’s cerebral and witty, with players accumulating scores of hours of intoxicating fun. That’s because House Party is a smart sexy game, which delivers a unique gameplay mechanic through an advanced AI system whereby the player’s every choice influences the reaction and outcome of the game.

The game also delivers a very unique Custom Story Creator, which allows players to create their own stories for the game which they can share with others who can play through new experiences and new character reactions for tremendous and fun replay-ability.

The game community has certainly embraced House Party and it’s reflected its historical high review scores on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/agecheck/app/611790/

About Eek Games!
Eek! Games was started in 2015, with “House Party” as its first title. Programmer, Bobby Ricci, had worked on a few other projects prior. In 2017 House Party was launched on Steam, as an Early Access game. Even though it was still very premature, the initial reception was surprising, and the community built quickly. The game sold over 30,000 copies in the first few weeks and over 300,000 purchased downloads in its first year, alone.
Bobby and Eek! Games have many more game ideas brewing with a new update to House Party coming in late October and a new title in the works for a tentative 2020 Early Access release.

The cast in House Party are not your typical stereotypes that you would see in other types of media. They are all quite different and yet totally relatable. Game Grumps and Lety joining House Party… simply amazing and will add to the familiarity of the Party. The new stories and challenges we are cooking up… We know you are going to have a blast!
