Film school was for us, an incubator for political awareness, with disciplinary skill and creative relationship formation. There, film craft was passed on and real understanding for the formulas behind US movie making (emphasizing story) and the emerging market platforms began. It was the science behind mainstream and experimental movie making with multi diciplinary work and emphasis in the production disciplines and use of technologies.
Rebel Morrison and pioneer Coppola, left enduring marks on this school's public image and reputation... The school has given way to global collaborations and the newest generation has graduated. I am one of those members. And I invite you to explore my website fully!
Be my guest, and acquaint yourself with the movement starting right here at my company site. While I accept donations and route % 's to other organizations, I endorse one which I find to be great for Christmas gifts: http://www.heifer.org. If you are looking for work, I am not hiring, however it is my hope that if you look for work as a heifer helper, the organization might place you within their ranks - look them up. Otherwise, if you are a "have" and not a "have not", donations to my company go into maintaining & furthering my company mission. In small ways this also can grow to support others' work worthy of our collective praise. (Some works may be featured here for paid viewing - not the YouTube model).

You can write-in a brief description, on each personal transaction, after you click on a yellow button. If you experience and currency difficulty, try another button, and notify email@example.com. You may always contact firstname.lastname@example.org to report snags - I'll get right on it with PayPal! Your contribution must not exceed 999.99 (US Dollar value) - their rules. Excess will not be processed by the bank unless it is part of a seperate transacted instance. Regarding where you want the funds to go, if you specify in a separate email to me (or in the memo line at least, as you donate) 1 of 3 categories , exactly 70% of each transacted amount, will be furthered (by me), to assist a charitable non-profit organization within the USA with that specifies categorie. So, indicate either: poverty, public health, or arts & humanities. (I will select the winning organization within your specified category). Make sure that you print your receipts always.
If you do not specify a categorie on a transaction, I will keep the 100% as profit.
You are also always welcome to donate to my company, in exchange for the usefulness to you of my site, and to keep my operation running smoothly. Remember there are costs involved with broadcasting. Label your donation as: "consumer of website". No donation is too small. Red tape is always a threat and your help is appreciated always.
Always print your receipt(s) in all instances, for your tax and personal reasons. I report all income as taxable income and 70% donations as applied, are further donated from post taxed proceeds. For this reason, there may be a year delay before your funds reach the donor.

Gratis/FREE -Do you want Free Movie Recommendations? -you'll find a list of highly recommended movies. I invite you to visit my buddies at www.fandango.com.

Now that I offer reviews on my own site sometimes, I check in with fandango very rarely, but have fun with it! They're also a good source for looking up showtimes etc.
