The Six Week Intensive Course will take students through each program as they work on various real-world projects to illustrate the distinct strengths and nuances of each NLE software. MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive is the only course of its kind that allows students to choose the footage they want to edit on the platform they prefer. This program also is the only Six Week program where students can have the opportunity to become a Certified Avid User, through certified training and exams.

Beyond the creative and technical aspects of editing, a portion of the Six Week Intensive Workshop is focused on the best strategies to secure a job once the class ends. Students will draft cover letters and resumes, which will be refined over the span of the class, and also discuss with instructors interview strategies and job applications, as well as how to appropriately set rates and find the right work for each graduate’s unique interests.

MEWShop also continues its successful intern/entry level referral program, where we connect students to top post houses and companies in the New York area. Upon completion of the Six Week Intensive Workshop, students will be provided with links to MEWShop's industry contacts in order to apply to paid editorial internships and entry-level positions – via resumes and work samples – where students will be given the opportunity to utilize their training and pursue a career in post-production.*

Jeff, “The Liquidator” working with Don of Storage Wars to Manage the Sale of Toronto’s Historic Addison’s Inc. Auction

Stunning Toronto’s St. Michaels Chandelier

Iconic Canary Restaurant Sign from the 1950s

Shield from the Movie Hannibal

A treasure of movie props, antiques and collectables are up for auction this month with the doors closing at famous Addison’s Inc in Toronto.

From cast iron antique radiators to lighting to furniture and more, the massive onsite live and online action will be something to witness.”

— Teresa Addison, daughter of the late Jim Addison.

TORONTO, ONTARIO , CANADA, March 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For over 50 years, Jim Addison collected pieces dating back to the early 20th century. Addison's Inc has been the spot for movie production companies and prop houses to find period pieces. Many props have been used in such movies as IT, a lamp from The Shape of Water, a shield used in Hannibal and an 1800’s bedroom suite used in the series Reign are just a few to name.

Many other collectable and cool items are jam-packed into the three-story warehouse that will be closing its doors permanently after the auction. The vintage Canary sign from Toronto’s iconic restaurant that was open from 1950-2007 will be up for bids, a stunning chandelier from Toronto’s St Michael’s Basilica Cathedral, a beehive jar that recently sold at another auction for $1,200. Over a thousand pieces are lotted, including The Sovereign of the Seas or also known as the Royal Sovereign, a model ship 48” wide by 40” high enclosed in glass, is understood to be a replica model of 1637 Built by Phineas Pett and his son. The actual ship weighed over 1000 tons and carried a crew of 600 men handling over 100 guns. Built by Bill Milner, an Ottawa army Major from WW11, the intricate carving and attention to detail is unsurpassed.

“It is incredibly humbling to have the honour of auctioning off these historic pieces,” said Jeff Schwarz, also known from his international OLN series, The Liquidator. “It’s not every day you can buy a chandelier from Toronto’s oldest church or a prison table from the Suicide Squad.”

The auction is being held March 23 & 24 starting at 10 am and will be managed by both The Liquidator and Don Reinhart of Storage Wars. Don has been meticulously working on sorting through all the incredible pieces over the past few weeks. “What’s really awesome is people can come to the actual live auction on site, while we simultaneously take bids live online from all over the world. It promises to be an exciting auction”.

“From cast iron antique radiators to lighting to furniture and more, the massive onsite live and online auction will be something to witness,” says Teresa Addison, daughter of the late Jim Addison. “I walk the floors of this “would be museum” and it brings back so many amazing memories. Once gone, I’m happy I will still be able to see some pieces in movies they were used in like Million Dollar Baby and Cinderella Man. It’s been quite a ride, and I am confident this one of a kind piece will be admired and cared for, for many years to come.

Be a part of the excitement and prepare to get transported back in time to an era when wrought iron, stained glass, chrome, brass and wood were the materials of choice.

How To Spot and Prevent Domestic Violence? Author Veera Mahajan Provides New Tool

Veera Mahajan; Author, UNREPORTED, Learning to Live Free

“UNREPORTED; Learning to LIVE free” Author Veera Mahajan, Photo Credit: Leonard Monje.

Self-Help Author Veera Mahajan's book "Unreported" Becomes New Tool to Help Spot and Prevent Domestic Abuse

If the abuser has no consequences, they have no motivation to stop. Ultimately, the responsibility lies with the victim; he or she has to stop accepting the abuse.”

— Veera Mahajan, author; "UNREPORTED: Learning to LIVE free"

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of the worst things a human being can suffer, is to be terrorized in their own home; a place where for most, is a location of peace, safety, and comfort. For the person living with an abuser, their home is a living hell. Suffering depression and anxiety, afraid that the one they love is going to return home in a bad mood; screaming, yelling, calling them swear words, or even raping or beating them; the victim of domestic abuse feels trapped—and usually is. Oftentimes blackmailed, extorted, manipulated with money, off and on again illusions of love, intimacy, sex, and even brainwashed; the domestic violence victim lives a secret life, torn between tears—and the dream of escaping their real-life horror.

WHO: Veera Mahajan lived with such abuse, for years. One day, she found the strength to get out, and go from victim—to victor. Former publisher of "The Malibu Chronicle," licensed Arbitrator, actress, producer, and domestic violence counselor; Veera Mahajan interviewed numerous women and men for her book UNREPORTED who survived abuse–and escaped.

WHAT: A must-read and a must-have for anyone living with domestic violence, or who are seeking to save others living with it; the book UNRERPORTED is a treasure.

WHY: Unlike many books on domestic violence, UNREPORTED gently helps make the reader “recognize and confront” the abusive situation they are in, that they are often in denial of. Secondly, it teaches the reader that something can be done to free themselves from their abuse, offering them real hope. Thirdly, UNREPORTED educates readers on how to be free from domestic violence.

AUDIENCE: Teachers, Schools, Faculty, Universities, Marriage and Family Counselors, Domestic Abuse Groups, hospitals, churches, emotional, sexual, and physical abuse survivors; all these and more will greatly benefit from UNREPORTED; many of whom are currently using the book in their teachings.

CALL TO ACTION: In 1867, John Stuart Mill reportedly stated that “Bad men need nothing more to advance their ends, than that good men see it and do nothing.” Let us not be one of the good persons who do nothing to help stop domestic violence. Join and work with Ms. Mahajan, getting her outstanding book in the hands of those who need it most. With this simple act, you can help save a person’s life.

New Feature Film "Tiger Heart" to be Directed by Hollywood Filmmaker Dwight H. Little

L to R: “Tiger Heart” producers Amit Sarin and Vineesha Arora Sarin, producer/screenwriter Scott J.T. Frank, director Dwight H. Little

Production on Film About the Global Horror of Illegal Poaching of Bengal Tigers Set to Begin this Fall in India

We are very pleased to have Dwight’s vision bringing this story to life on film — we know he will honor the majesty of these creatures within the context of this exciting action/adventure story.”

— Film Producer Vineesha Arora Sarin

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Accomplished filmmaker Dwight H. Little has been signed by NY Studios to direct “Tiger Heart,” a feature film that is set to begin production this Fall in India. The action/adventure film centers on one man’s efforts to stop the ongoing poaching of Bengal tigers, listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List and currently thought to number only approximately 2,000 in the wild, a number that has dropped from approximately 2,500 over the past decade.

Casting for the film is currently underway.

“I am looking forward to getting on the ground in India and shooting this great story,” said Little. “Scott J.T. Frank and Si Dunn have written a wonderful screenplay that exposes the horrendous poaching of these magnificent creatures, and the heroic work of those who are on the front lines fighting for their preservation.”

“We are very pleased to have Dwight’s vision bringing this story to life on film,” said producer Vineesha Arora Sarin. “I grew up watching the ‘Free Willy’ franchise, and it is apparent that Dwight understands the human-animal connect very well. He will honor the majesty of these creatures within the context of this exciting action/adventure story.”

Added producer Amit Sarin, “Sharing the plight of these magnificent big cats and the global horror of illegal poaching via this exciting feature film is a journey that I am looking forward to.”

At its core, “Tiger Heart” is a taut action/adventure in which one man spearheads a small international team of conservationists who take on the organized gangs of poachers who feed the black market that trades in the hides, blood and body parts of exotic creatures whose numbers are being dessimated to fuel the billion-dollar illegal wildlife trade. The film is set in the foothills of the Himalayas, and shooting begins this Fall at Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve, located within India’s oldest national park.

Seasoned director Dwight H. Little is known for a long list of feature films, including “Murder at 1600,” starring Wesley Snipes and Diane Lane, “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers,” the Steven Seagal blockbuster “Marked for Death” and “Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home,” among others. Little was executive producer on John Woo’s “Broken Arrow,” starring John Travolta and Christian Slater, and has directed episodes of numerous hit television series, including more than 20 episodes of the long-running Fox hit “Bones.”

“Tiger Heart” is produced by NY Studios and Lotus Entertainment Group, and producers Vineesha Arora Sarin, Scott. J.T. Frank, Amit Sarin and Peter Ziebert. Screenplay is by Scott J.T. Frank and Si Dunn.

Documentary Celebrates The Grapes of Wrath’s 80th Anniversary

The film draws parallels between the 1930s and today. Juxtaposing Steinbeck’s fictional journey with a modern-day version, this time by five guys on bicycles.

Essentially all the things Steinbeck reflected on in The Grapes of Wrath – are front and centre in American cultural and political discourse right now.”

— Charlie Turnbull, Co-Director

USA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An adventure documentary inspired by one Australian’s love of the iconic novel, The Grapes of Wrath, will be released nationally in cinemas in over 300 US cities on April 15th coinciding with the book’s 80th anniversary (the day before). The critically acclaimed film, aptly named “The Bikes of Wrath”, has been racking up festival awards for the last six months including the People’s Choice Award at the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Competition (Free Solo was also in the same competition).

The documentary follows five novice (but very endearing) riders as they journey from Sallisaw, Oklahoma to Bakersfield, California. They do it in 30 days while relying on the kindness of strangers (and the current-day equivalent of $18; the amount the Joad family survived on).

The documentary explores the broader themes of poverty, self-reliance, community – in the modern day and in the Great Depression when the book is set. It draws explicit parallels between the 1930s and today, with passages from the novel being read aloud by people they meet along the journey. You cant help but be struck by both the enduring power of Steinbeck’s characters and their insights as well as the strength and resilience of communities to both come together and also to welcome the strangers in their midst.

“The media’s depiction of America is currently one of division, fear, and at times, ignorance,” said Cameron Ford, Co Director, Co Producer and Featured Cyclist. “However, as filmmakers from Australia, without preconceived notions of the United States, we were able to present a more genuine reflection of America by simply chatting with the small-town regular folks we met along the way.”

Filmed in 2015 during the US primaries, The Bikes of Wrath captures a moment in time and offers much needed insight into what unites us rather than what divides us. It has thrilled festival goers in multiple countries and will now enjoy a theatrical event release in the US through Demand Film.

Daniel Berini joins new feature film from Creō Pictures.

Australian actor, Daniel Berini

Daniel Berini made a notable appearance on the Channel Nine series, “Love Child”

The Australian actor, currently starring in feature film "Promised," will film across two timelines involving the same character.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Australian actor Daniel Berini has signed on to star in a yet-to-be-titled feature film from acclaimed LA-based production company, Creō Pictures, in association with award-winning production company Smarter Pictures.

The original short film on which the feature is based, ""Rocket Man, is about a struggling writer who has to confront a former friend after suddenly hitting the big time, while his own career is yet to take off. Berini has been cast as the struggling writer, Paul Hammock. Producers have yet to announce who will round out the cast.
