11th Annual Golden Trailer Awards® Nominations Announced. Awards Show June 10 in L.A. Will Fete Best Movie Trailers of 2010











New York, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2010

Nominations for the 11th Annual Golden Trailer Awards® were announced today, with nods to promo reels ranging from summer blockbusters including “Iron Man 2,” “The Last Airbender”, and “Prince of Persia,” to dramatic fare such as “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.” The annual live award ceremony will take place at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on the evening of June 10th, 2010. Golden Trailer® event co-founders and producers Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady, revealed the list today, along with a roster of jurors made up of industry pros, among them Edgar Winter, Marc Webb and Andy Samberg.

Created in 1999 to celebrate the art, craft and fun of movie promotion, The Golden Trailer Awards are internationally recognized as the top honor in the field, coveted by trailer producers, and watched carefully by marketing decision-makers in the industry. But, while the awards are serious business for the winners, for the rest of us they are just plain fun.

Sixteen of the 61 categories of Golden Trailer Awards® will be distributed on June 10th during a popular gala night laced with comedy and entertainment, with host and presenters to be announced. Among past years’ hosts are Dean Edwards, Tom Green, Dennis Miller and Kathy Griffin. The event is open to the public.

Nominations in 61 categories are posted on http://www.goldentrailer.com and are below—ranging from big-budget extravaganzas to smaller, more unconventional reels. The nominating committee selected from a total pool of 954 entries. With 38 nominations, Lionsgate is the clear front-runner for a studio, for films as varied as “Kick Ass” and “Precious.” Warner Bros. follows with 21 nominations. On the creative front, Ignition leads the pack among trailer houses, boasting 46. The nomination categories, which cover movie trailers, posters, and TV spots, range from the expected—Best Action, Best Romance, Best Horror, etc.—to the irreverent, including The Golden Fleece trophy applauding the best reel for a bad movie, and Trashiest Trailer. Additionally, there is a category for Best Videogame Trailer.

The nominees will be judged by a prestigious jury of entertainment pros, including legendary rock musician Edgar Winters, who will be on his third tour with Ringo Starr and the All-Starr Band this summer and whose music can be heard in no fewer than fifteen film and television projects; film and music video director Marc Webb, whose credits include the next “Spider-Man” film, last summer’s breakout indie hit “500 Days of Summer,” and music videos for artists ranging from Miley Cyrus to Green Day and Diddy; Ruth Vitale, who has headed indie film powerhouses such as First Look Pictures, Paramount Classics and Fine Line Pictures, and, as executive producer, has shepherded such films as “Don Juan de Marco,” “The Virgin Suicides,” “Gummo,” “You Can Count on Me,” “Paris, Je T’Aime” and the upcoming “Audrey”; Jennifer Merin, President of the Alliance of Women Film Journalists and editor, writer, and critic for About.com: Documentaries, Women on Film, and New York Press; and writer-performer-filmmakers Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer, and Jorma Taccone—the Emmy winning team collectively known as “The Lonely Island”—responsible for creating more than 60 Digital Short Films for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Additionally, the group premiered its first feature film “Hot Rod” in 2007, which Shaffer directed and co-starred in with Samberg and Taccone. Taccone is the writer-director of “MacGruber,” opening this summer.

Hearty Pawshake Seals Hallmark Channel – Best Friends Movie Premiere Partnership Deal











“You Lucky Dog” photo by Chris Helcermanas-Benge/2009 Crown Media


Studio City, CA (Vocus) May 19, 2010

Lucky Dogs Everywhere Benefit from Hallmark Channel and Best Friends Animal Society Partnership to Find Homes for Pets. Hallmark Channel’s Premiere of You Lucky Dog Teams Up with Best Friends’ Adoption Option to Raise Awareness for Pet Adoption

Hallmark Channel and Best Friends Animal Society have shaken paws over a new partnership to help raise awareness of the issue of homeless pets in conjunction with Hallmark Channels’ premiere of the original movie You Lucky Dog. The movie, starring Harry Hamlin, Natasha Henstridge and a border collie named Lucky, premieres on Hallmark Channel June 26th with a hopeful and heart-tugging message about rescuing pets and making them a celebrated part of the family.

Best Friends Animal Society, known for its efforts to build a better world through kindness to animals, is working with Hallmark Channel to showcase the movie while championing ”No More Homeless Pets®,” and encouraging pet-lovers everywhere to consider adoption from a shelter or rescue organization when their next pet comes into their lives. Best Friends recently launched an adoption pledge, and the organization hopes that visibility from You Lucky Dog will lead people to think more seriously about pet adoption in the future.

“Hallmark Channel embraces pets as part of the family, and with the story told in You Lucky Dog it was natural to extend our love of pets beyond the television screen to make a difference for adopted animals and families who bring them into their lives,” said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Hallmark Channel. “Working with Best Friends Animal Society has brought tremendous stories of pet devotion to light, and we’re proud to be a part of such an effort.”

Hallmark Channel and Best Friends will work “paw-in-hand” to cooperatively market the movie premiere and the adoption option pledge campaign, promoting the initiative at local animal adoption events and public outreach opportunities associated with the movie premiere.

“We are excited to partner with Hallmark Channel to promote the life-saving value of adoption in conjunction with the movie release,” said Vicki Kilmer-Rinker, Director of Marketing for Best Friends Animal Society. “By combining Hallmark Channel’s dedication to families and their pets and Best Friends’ focus on helping all pets find loving homes, we’ve found the perfect fit to make a PAWsitive impact for pets and their families across the country.”

From on-air Public Service Announcements and advertising and program tie-ins including celebrities associated with the partners and involved in You Lucky Dog, targeted media and publicity attention, all three program partners will be bringing attention to the pet adoption message through the premiere of You Lucky Dog and beyond.

You Lucky Dog and Hallmark Channel will be participating in the LA Spring Adoption Festival on May 23rd in Los Angeles, as well as the first Tri-State Super Adoption event June 12-13 in Livingston, N.J.

Visit http://pledge.bestfriends.org for more information on the adoption option pledge.

You would like to watch the large games from the comfort of your home with pretty much as good a picture and sound set-up as achievable. Now is the time to buy a brand new 3D TV and surround sound system. Even if you can’t afford it, and for that matter even if you can, there are actually a couple of things you can do to ensure that you get the best performance from any Television & surround sound system.

1. Postioning your Television

Your TV is probably sat where it is because that is where the nearest aerial socket is. A television of some sort has probably been sat there since the late ’60′s. So, you are probably watching TV where you are because some bloke decided that is where he wanted it 50 years ago. Which is not neccessarily the best place for it. The most effective position is one where you are most comfortable watching it – probably at eye level when seated, and where the lighting conditions are optimal. For example, you do not want direct sunlight or even reflected sunlight on your screen. During the day time it will affect your viewing. Now, during the old days when your TV was the scale of a small car, it had been a sensible idea to sit it in the corner. But now a flat screen may be positioned almost anywhere. So, if this means moving the aerial point or power socket then get the proverbial ‘man’ in, to take a look at it.

2. Your Television picture.

Most Televisions are set up by default with everything boosted to appear brighter and more colourful. This will be because when you go to look in your shop for a new TV it’s going to seem like it is giving a better picture than the one next to it. We are drawn to bright vivid colours. However, this isn’t neccessarily the greatest and most realistic setting. Obviously, professional calibration is going to cost equipment and money. But you can make some adjustments yourself to increase your viewing pleasure.

a) Adjust the brightness and contrast in making the blacks blacker and the whites whiter.

b) Adjust the colour. Unless you are watching Katie Price and Alex Reid, not everyone in the media is orange.

c) Adjust the image sharpness. Make the image as clear and crisp as possible. You’ll know when you’ve gone too far because borders and double edges will start to show round the images. Should you prefer to tweak it some more, then I recommend purchasing Digital Video Essentials on DVD or Blu Ray. It is a step-by-step guide to calibrate your LCD or plasma picture settings. Probably for the uber geek, but it is possible to pick the DVD up for around £12.

3. Cables

The purchase price of cable for AV setups is a joke. A good HDMI cable can cost £100. Crazy talk. But do they work? Well, I’m sorry to let you know, yes they do. A decent cable can dramatically increase the performace of the Television and audio system. I wish it wasn’t true but I actually performed this experiment myself last week. I had a vintage scart lead connecting my TV and DVD player. I knew that it wasn’t all that good, but I could just about live with it ( I am a bit short sighted anyway). But, finding myself inside a well know electronics retailer store, I thought I would buy a fancy cable and see just how much the picture improved.

Do not beleive the hype I thought. I will take the lead back at those prices if I don’t get a good result. However, after plugging it in, it was like someone had switched the lights on. A fantastic, crisp, bright picture appeared before me. Damn I thought – that has cost me!

A tip though. I do have an exceptionally nice 1080p Full HD LCD. There will not be any point spending hundreds of pounds on high quality cables if you have a cheap, rubbish TV you bought from ASDA for next to nothing with 2 cut price DVDs. It’s not a magic wand.

4. Sound

Now we turn to sound. If you haven’t got a surround sound system, you’re not going to get that rich, deep, sound and the atmosphere of the stadium. So, you really should consider purchasing one. And I’m afraid yes, you usually get what you pay for. But even a £150 system will be better than your TV. And if space is an issue have a look at purchasing all-in-one speaker bars. They provide surround sound from a single box by bouncing the sound off the walls.

With traditional surround sound, the position of your speakers is key. You’ll get the best sound by placing the centre speaker directly above or below your TV. Left and right speakers should go either side of the TV. The rear left and right speakers should go either side of the sofa at ear height. If you’re not allowed to leave them there (like me, the wife won’t have it), just make sure you can move them when the big match starts. You can put your subwoofer anywhere you like, as it provides bass frequencies that are non-directional.

5. High Definition – are you really watching it?

Just because you’ve an HD ready or Full HD TV doesn’t mean that you’re automatically going to be watching TV in high definition. You’ll will want to add a high-definition source such as Freeview HD, Sky HD, Virgin V+ or Freesat. And that means you will want to either upgrade your package. Or in the case of Freeview, by an HD decoder. Remember only certain channels are broadcast in HD and you’ll will need to be tuned in to watch them.

That should about cover it. Follow this advice and watch the world cup at high quality in the comfort of your own home. While you might not get the atmosphere of the pub, at least you can guarantee a seat..

This doesn’t cover everyting involved when you are creating your own web site, but hopefully I have given you an insight in to what is involved. There are plenty of ebooks and such stuff that you can find on the internet. I always go to a company called computer repair london. They don’t just repair computers, they also provide IT support as well and they are always helpfull if you get stuck on anything.

I have been heavily involved in the property business for over twenty years. My work ranges from gardening, electrics and diy. Gasically I can turn my hand to pretty much anything.

Telecast Fiber Systems’ CopperHead™ 3400 Named Best of IBC2010 by TVBEurope and The IBC Daily











TVB Europe Best of IBC Award


Worcester, MA (Vocus) October 18, 2010

Telecast Fiber Systems today announced that its groundbreaking CopperHead™ 3400 fiber optic video transceiver, specifically designed for high-end 3D cinema production, has received a Best of IBC2010 award from TVBEurope Magazine and The IBC Daily. Chosen by the two publications’ editorial teams, the Best of IBC2010 awards recognize the best new product innovations of last month’s IBC2010 show in Amsterdam.

The CopperHead 3400 is the first product of its kind to mount directly onto a dual-camera 3D rig, allowing producers to harness the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of tactical fiber for transporting high-quality stereoscopic HD signals over long distances. The CopperHead 3400 transports all of the signals to and from two HD cameras, as well as the 3D rig’s control system to the control room or truck, and also carries a return 3D HD/SDI signal back to the camera operator. The system enables not only full control of both cameras from the base station but also enables the convergence operator to control the 3D rig’s interocular convergence — all over a thin, lightweight fiber optic cable.

“The editors of TVBEurope and The IBC Daily have a unique insight into the IBC exhibitor community and a very broad perspective on the most innovative products at the show – so it is indeed a great honor that they chose the CopperHead 3400 for this prestigious award,” said Steve DeFrancesco, vice president and general manager of Telecast Fiber Systems. “By supporting the full range of compact HD cameras and 3D rigs, the CopperHead 3400 provides a highly versatile and cost-effective solution for 3D productions of many types.”

“We asked the strongest combined editorial team in the business bar none to pick out the most innovative, cleverest new product introductions at the world’s electronic marketplace,” said TVBEurope editor Fergal Ringrose. “We were especially looking for new products that clearly show the potential to make money, or save money, for end users — rather than clever technology for technology’s sake.

The CopperHead 3400 is available directly from Telecast Fiber Systems, or via a network of authorized CopperHead dealers.
