Ray Harryhausen, Special Effects Titan

For the first time Ray and the Foundation have provided unprecedented access to film all aspects of the collection including models, artwork and miniatures as well as Ray’s private study, where he designed most of his creations, and his workshop where he built them. In addition the documentary will use unseen footage of tests and experiments found during the clearance of the LA garage. Never before has so much visual material been used in any previous documentary about Ray. This definitive production will not only display a huge part of the unique … Written by The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation

When it comes to careers, I think you can call me “ambidextrous.” I’ve gone from journalism to criminal prosecution…and now I’m very happy doing both!

If you’d told me fifteen years ago that I’d be spending three months in a body cast after a riding accident, then ditch freelance writing in favor of going to law school, argue before the state supreme court five times, start wearing spike heels and then start my own website…I’d have called the cops and suggested a nice stay in a padded room for you.

But it all happened, and after that dramatic career change from journalism to law, a few years later I found I needed desperately to get back to the keyboard. I love my job as a prosecutor, but to be honest, legal briefs do torture and violence to the English language. And there are times that if streams of more creative words don’t escape from my fingertips, the top of my head may just leave my body.

So I started writing essays on my own website, “Running with Stilettos,” three years ago. Some won awards, some got reprinted elsewhere, and eventually some made it into my first book of the same name that I published in 2008. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, some will probably get you to say “hey, I’ve been there, done that!!” Dating, power tools, shoe shopping, chocolate addiction, friendship, tragedies, celebrations and the melancholy that comes with kids growing up and growing away, they’re all in there. And don’t forget the view from the back of a Harley, or going on “spring break” for the first time at the age of…ahem…nevermind!

Since that first book, I’ve published two more–“Heck on Heels” (2009) and “Fabulous in Flats” (2011). “Heck” brought home an Indie Excellence Award for Inspiration, and “Fabulous” was named 2011’s Published Book of the Year by the Florida Writers Association. Both of these were named “Book of the Year” finalists by ForeWord reviews.

The Great Wall Rated PG-13

Starring Matt Damon.

An epic battle between good and evil, deeply rooted in Chinese history and culture. The Great Wall of China is the dramatic setting for a war between an army of soldiers and a horde of ravening monsters seeking to breach the wall. The monsters, called the Taotie, rise from Jade Mountain every 60 years and assault the wall, destroying everything in their path. If they cannot be stopped, China will be devastated.
