Oliver Richman, New Music Release

Oliver Richman, New Holiday Release

Oliver Richman

A Newly Released Music Video of the Same Song, Recorded and Filmed By Oliver When he Was 10 Years Old, Accompanies the 2018 Recording

‘I Can See’ is a song of hope and optimism. In a world full of challenge, it is inspiring and empowering to remember to look for the good even while acknowledging some of the pain of the truth.”

— Lisa Dawn Miller, Producer

LOS ANGELES , CA, U.S.A., December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Keeping the spirit alive of his iconic grandfather, famed songwriter Ron Miller, 18-year-old actor/singer Oliver Richman (https://oliverrichman.com/) releases a powerful, piano-only ballad entitled "I Can See." Oliver is the first artist to release the track written by his late grandfather when it was discovered after Miller’s passing in 2007. The new recording is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and YouTube.

Oliver previously recorded the song as a child in 2010 and filmed a music video for its release, however the video was held and only recently edited as part of a college send-off to Oliver from his mother, producer/singer/songwriter Lisa Dawn Miller (https://lisadawnmiller.com/), who produced both recordings and the music video. The video is now available on Oliver’s website and on YouTube at https://youtu.be/TXvwJUL6J0s.

“As part of my goal to get all of the unknown works of my father out there for the whole world to hear, I’m so grateful to have the extraordinary talents of my son, who knows how to interpret my father’s powerful, meaningful and profound lyrics with depth and sensitivity,” Lisa Miller said.

“‘I Can See’ is a song of hope and optimism. In a world full of challenge, it is inspiring and empowering to remember to look for the good even while acknowledging some of the pain of the truth. It was my father’s message to me and it is my message to my son, who sang this song as an innocent child full of hope and excitement about the future and who sings it now as young college student wanting to utilize his talents to go out there and change the world in the most positive ways,” Miller continued.

Just in time for the holidays, Oliver also recently released a beautiful rendition of the late Miller's holiday classic, "Someday at Christmas," originally recorded by Stevie Wonder in 1967. The song is also available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and YouTube. “Someday at Christmas” and “I Can See” are the first two releases from the younger Miller’s new record label, LDM Music.

Oliver's grandfather and Lisa's father, Ron Miller, penned standards such as, "For Once in My Life," "Touch Me in the Morning," "A Place in the Sun,” "Yester-me, Yester-you, Yesterday," "Heaven Help Us All," "I've Never Been to Me," "If I Could,” “Everyone’s a Kid at Christmas Time” (co-written by Oliver’s maternal grandmother, Aurora Miller), and many more.

Oliver was personally invited by Stevie Wonder when he was just 10 years old to perform the hit “One Little Christmas Tree” at the Nokia Theatre (now the Microsoft Theater) for Wonder's annual House Full of Toys benefit concert, where Oliver received a standing ovation from more than 7,500 people. Oliver is now a freshman at New York University Tisch School of the Arts.

Oliver’s prior releases include takes on his grandfather’s classics, “For Once in My Life – Special 50th Anniversary Edition,” “Heaven Help Us All,” “Will I Still Be Me,” and “Everyone’s a Kid at Christmas Time.” He also released many other songs including several penned by his mother, “You and I,” “Rise” “Believe,” “Today” and “The Diagramming Club.”

Lisa has written and/or produced other holiday recordings for the Miller-family catalogue such as “A Miracle,” "A Christmas Truce," We'll Always Have Christmas Eve," "A New Year" and “Celebrate Me Home.” She also recently launched LDM Publishing (https://ldmpublishing.com/) and is currently developing a new musical about the life of her father entitled, “For Once in My Life."

At 9 years old, Oliver released, “Defying Gravity,” his first music video. He first appeared in the critically-acclaimed show, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” as “Young Frank Sinatra” at age 10. At 13 years old, he released a piano-only ballad of Bruno Mars’ “Count on Me.”

Introducing PIQO, The Word’s Smartest and Most Powerful 1080p Pico Pocket Projector

PIQO one of the most portable projectors ever, measuring only 2 inches on each side.

Enjoy PIQO anywhere – Perfect especially for those bedtime screenings.

PIQO’s portability means that you can be ready for a professional presentation anywhere you go.

PIQO is a state-of-the-art entertainment system that features Android, a 240” HD screen, universal connectivity and much more – all while fitting in your pocket

We had a crazy idea of designing the world’s most powerful projector that could fit in the palm of your hand. PIQO achieves that through a perfect harmony of smart features, HD video, size and price.”


LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, December 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — PIQO is the latest innovation in portable projection technology. Measuring barely 2 in. tall and wide, this pocket-sized cinema comes packed with features such as 1080p HD picture quality, a built-in Hi-Fi speaker, seamless Bluetooth pairing, offline storage, and an incredible 50 hours of battery life. Whether at home, work, or virtually anywhere else, PIQO brings media to life like never before.

PIQO may be small, but it’s already making big waves across the web. Within three days of its launch on Indiegogo, funding had already exceeded $100,000 —this amounts to over 1,000% of its goal. And it isn’t stopping there. As the word spreads about PIQO’s incredible capabilities as an all-in-one smart multimedia player, funding and support from the community is growing exponentially.

PIQO isn’t just a standard projector. Because it has Android Operating system and apps, screen mirroring support (AirPlay, Miracast, eShare), WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth, and built-in storage, it’s more like a full-fledged smart entertainment system. Users can connect to the internet and access their favorite apps like Netflix and YouTube from anywhere, without their phone. Navigation is easy thanks to the responsive touchscreen and included remote control. PIQO is also universally compatible with all mobile devices, gaming systems, and computers and can seamlessly cast shows and games on any surface via screen mirroring. As PIQO is meant to be taken everywhere, a lack of internet isn’t a problem. Movies and songs can be loaded directly onto PIQO’s hard drive, and users can even download their next Netflix binge right from the app for offline viewing.

When it comes time to turn PIQO on, users can enjoy hours of HD quality picture and audio without the need for a single wire. The powerful 200-lumen projector delivers twice the brightness of most competitors in the premium $500-800 price range such as Sony and Philips and guarantees rich colors and sharp images at 1080p HD. PIQO can project at up to 240” without a loss in picture quality for a truly cinematic experience.

One issue with other portable projectors is that they require external speakers, bringing into question how “portable” they really are. PIQO solves this problem with its state-of-the-art built-in speaker. Designed by audio engineers from leading audio brands, PIQO’s surround-sound speaker booms with crystal clear Hi-Fi sound.

PIQO can be placed on any type of surface and still deliver flawless video thanks to its automatic keystone angle correction. With the touch of a button, PIQO automatically adjusts the projected image using advanced gravity sensors. PIQO can be put on tables, beds, tripods, lawn chairs—anywhere.

Looking at the hardware, PIQO is extremely powerful. In fact, it’s as powerful as your iPhone. With its 16 GB of memory, quad-core processor, and battery capable of up to 5 hours of video and 50 hours of music playback, PIQO isn’t just the most powerful portable projector. It’s one of the most powerful devices. Period.

PIQO was developed by leading audio-visual engineers who set out to create the first portable entertainment system. As PIQO is a projector that has its own smart computing and storage capabilities yet is also universally compatible with all other devices, users will enjoy limitless possibilities for entertainment, education, business and more. And, with the most advanced speaker, projector, and battery in the industry, PIQO looks and sounds better (and lasts longer) than most phones, tablets, and computers, and other projectors out there.

About PIQO
PIQO was founded by a group of dedicated audio-visual specialists who had the crazy idea of designing the world’s most powerful projector that could fit in the palm of your hand. After months of research and development, the PIQO projector was born. By packing every multimedia feature imaginable into this project (and designing brand new, cutting-edge technology), the team at PIQO has realized its dream of creating the first pocket-sized entertainment system.

This extended agreement is all about ensuring a viable business model that follows Altibox’s growth. Xstream’s cloud SaaS services will now be used on a flexible, usage driven SaaS billing basis”

“This extended agreement between the two firms is all about ensuring a viable business model that follows Altibox’s growth,” adds Michael Rasmussen, Xstream’s CEO. “Xstream’s cloud SaaS services will now be used on a flexible, usage driven SaaS billing basis.”

The enhanced benefits to Altibox from this new agreement are manyfold. It gives Altibox ongoing access to Xstream’s monitoring services, AWS and DRM experts, and enables use of features such as auto-scaling.

Altibox is a unified brand name for broadband, IPTV and VOIP services distributed in Norway and Denmark with over 35 Norwegian and six Danish networks.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES , November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 26th annual New York African Diaspora International Film Festival (NYADIFF) is well underway in New York City with 61 films playing from 40 countries world wide! Having started on Friday, November 23, 2018, the festival has had screenings showing in Teachers College, Columbia University and MIST Harlem. From Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 the festival will be bringing some of its films to Cinema Village in Greenwich Village, New York.

Here are the films you should look out for:

Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 5:30pm daily
In January 2015, the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Joseph Kabila, sought a constitutional amendment that would allow him to be elected president for a third time.

This film documents the resulting demonstrations and follows three protagonists of the resistance. Ben, who lives in exile in New York, takes the advice of his fellow countrymen in exile and decides to join the struggle in the Congo. Jean Marie, who has just been released from prison, continues his public campaign for his country’s freedom and is persecuted by the secret service. Christian fights unperturbed in the streets of Kinshasa, even after former Prime Minister Etienne Tshisekedi, on whom the opposition had pinned their hopes, dies and the movement against Kabila’s extension of his time in office seems paralyzed.

Should one resist in exile, or fight on the ground in the Congo? Should resistance be non-violent or should force be used if required? Filmed throughout with a handheld camera that stays very close to the protagonists, even in precarious conditions, Dieudo Hamadi explores the pros and cons of different forms of resistance.

As of September 2018, general elections are scheduled to be held in the Democratic Republic of the Congo on 23 December 2018, to determine a successor to incumbent President Joseph Kabila.

(Directed by Dieudo Hamadi, 2017, France/Germany/Norway/Qatar/Switzerland, 75 minutes, documentary, French, Lingala with English subtitles.)

Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 3:10pm daily
2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate and winner of the Sakharov Prize 2014, Doctor Denis Mukwege is internationally known as the man who has assisted thousands of women who have been sexually assaulted during the 20 years of conflicts in the East of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. However, his endless struggle to put an end to these atrocities and denounce the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators is not welcome. Threatened with death, Doctor Denis Mukwege now lives cloistered in his hospital in Bukavu. But he is no longer alone in his struggle. The women to whom he has restored physical integrity and dignity, stand beside him, true activists for peace, hungry for justice.

(Directed by Thierry Michel and Colette Braeckman, 2015, Belgium/Congo, 113min, documentary in French, English, Swahil and Mashi with English subtitles.)

Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 9:20pm daily
No Shade explores the hardships of the modern dating world through the dysmorphic presence of colorism as well as the fetishization of black women in a way that is tactful and honest. Jade is both effervescent and relatable as a 28 year old single woman of dark complexion who just “can’t seem to get it right,” let alone liberate herself from her unrequited love for the repressive and colorist Danny. The world through her eyes is both a quirky and tumultuous obstacle course of courtship catastrophes and heart-gripping silences. Despite Jade’s line up of Tinder flops and her challenges in the friend-zone, she is easy to engage with and adorable. Jade’s charisma, quirk, beauty, vulnerability and perseverance throughout the film make her a thoughtful heroine with a twist of comedic spunk in the end.
(Directed by Clare Anyiam-Osigwe, 2018, UK, 104 minutes, Romance/Drama, English)

Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 1:00pm daily
Growing up in the Moroccan village of Tazzeka, Elias learned the secrets of traditional Moroccan cuisine from his grandmother who raised him.

But he also finds friendship with Souleymane, who helps revive his passion for cooking.
(Directed by Jean Phillipe Gaud, 2018, France/Morocco, 95 minutes, French, Arabic with English subtitles)

Alexander Golberg Jero spectacular Animated film “The Master and Margarita” featuring three forms of Animation!



Motion Capture

Three forms of Animation in one feature will be produced by Hollywood for the First Time in Alexander Golberg Jero Animated film “The Master and Margarita”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The special Animated film is based on the famous Russian novel titled, “The Master and Margarita”. Written by the Russian writer, Mikhail Bulgakov. This new Animated film will feature three different styles of Animation to tell the three different stories that relate to the original novel. The three different styles are, CG/2-D/Motion Capture. Using these three formats will help display the satirical but beautiful story of 1930’s Moscow/the Biblical story of Christ/Roman Procurator Pontius Pilate. All of these stories intertwine together to create the breathtaking story of love and sacrifice that is the backbone of this famous novel, The Master and Margarita. In addition to the well composed music and the all star cast of voice actors, this film will also feature a special surprise guest star as the character of Pontius Pilate. The movie is set for release in the latter part of 2020, with production beginning in April of 2019. It is being Produced by MediaInVision Films and Buffalo 8 Productions. The Funding being raised by the BondIt Media Capital group. One of the main Animation studios that will help in the main production is, Noble. Noble is an Animation facility based in Hollywood. The main story centers around the satiric presence of the Devil (Woland) and his entourage as they visit Moscow. The seemingly simple and comical story consists of deep philosophical subjects that are stunningly portrayed by the interesting characters. For the story of Yashua (the prototype of Christ) and Pontius Pilate, Herald Entertainment, another Animation facility, will use 2-D Animation to tell this story that takes place during biblical times, centering around many biblical characters. There have been numerous 2D films/short films that have been produced that have featured biblical characters/stories. The final third of the film will use Motion Capture. A highly technical method of filmmaking that can add some very powerful incredible imagery to the film. Using the performances from live actors/actresses to help capture the Animation needed for this part of the film. With the use of these three different methods of Animation, it can only help to make it more interesting in a visual way besides telling the story. Just when people familiar with this great story, The Master and Margarita, Goldberg Jero creates a way to transform this novel into a delightful visual treat! This will help to change how people see The Master and Margarita. Using the incredible resources of different styles of Animation. However, a unique film like this is only as strong as the musical score behind it. This is where the talented Alexander Goldberg Jero uses his incredible musical sensibilities to make it shine all the more. The magic that he will create for this film using a surround sound experience that even the most trained audiophile will appreciate. Becoming completely immersed in this film. Animated films usually rely on their animation techniques for aesthetic appeal, which in this case have been carefully selected to perfectly tell this story. A story with as much depth as this one requires numerous techniques to highlight the various aspects of this iconic story. Working also together with the immensely talented and Grammy nominated conductor, Jose Serebrier, who is one of the most frequently recorded conductors today. These two musical geniuses have come together to create the perfect musical experience to accompany this classic tale, giving it the perfect musical finishing touches to this highly anticipated film. The Master and Margarita is a classic Russian story that has been read by the reading masses for a long time, since its creation back during the Stalin Era of Russia. This story had its own rich history, as a censored version was finally published in a Moscow magazine in the late 1960s after the author’s death. The original manuscript was published in 1967, in Paris. It has become a beloved piece of Russian literature over time. A story that Alexander Goldberg Jero was passionate about bringing to life in his own way. Much like everything else that Alexander Goldberg Jero does, he has created a meticulous plan for how he wanted this story to look and sound. It was not enough for Goldberg Jero to just simply retell a story that has been around for decades, but to also offer an unexpected but exciting visual approach to this literary classic through the making of an Animated film. He wanted to create an experience. Goldberg Jero aims to attract longtime fans of this classic novel but also to create a new audience for this timeless tale. He has a passion for telling stories through his musical projects. Which then caused him to direct this passion onto the tale of The Master and Margarita. A remarkable note here about the budget is that this movie is expected to come in at just under $20 million U.S. dollars. Media entrepreneur and co-producer Matthew Helderman, is responsible for raising up the funds that are necessary for a project of this scale. As indicated before, BondIt Media Capital, based in Santa Monica, has previously provided funding for more than 150 feature films and television projects which range from micro budget to larger studio projects. As an Executive Producer Service provider for The Master and Margarita, Helderman is actively looking for another investor who would like to contribute 25% of the film’s budget. Please contact MediaInVision Films to learn more about this exiting opportunity!
