Lemurian Films Releases Acclaimed Documentary “White Shadows” by Director Mialyn Hanna on DVD













Dalee Henderson


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2008

Lemurian Films today announced the release of the feature-length documentary “White Shadows” on DVD. Directed by Los Angeles filmmaker Mialyn Hanna, with music by Philip Glass, the critically acclaimed and award-winning film explores the life of celebrity hairstylist Dalee Henderson and his battle with HIV/AIDS. “White Shadows” has won awards at International Film festivals such as ARPA, Toronto’s Rebelfest, the San Diego Black Film Festival, Best of NewFest at Bam and Best Music of a Documentary at Park City International Film Music Festival.

“I felt compelled to capture Dalee Henderson’s spirit and positive outlook on film in the face of his many obstacles,” said Director Mialyn Hanna, Lemurian Films. “He truly served as an inspiration for many and I wanted to celebrate his life and the gifts he brought to so many people of all walks of Life.”

Growing up in extreme poverty and prejudice in the rural South, Dalee struggled as a gay African-American longing for success and a sense of belonging. Leveraging his iron will and determination, he moved to Los Angeles and achieved great success in the 1980s as a hairstylist working with luminaries such as Diana Ross, Denzel Washington and Stevie Wonder. He later is diagnosed as being HIV positive and must reconcile himself to the changes the disease wracks on his body and mind as well as the continued prejudice of his family and society. One of the most poignant decisions of Dalee’s life is when he agonizes over taking experimental treatments or simply continuing to fight through sheer strength of will and faith in spirit. Through it all, he maintains an unwavering sense of humor and joy for life.

“Dalee truly believed that every day was a gift,” said Director Mialyn Hanna, Lemurian Films. “This is a story about a man who transcends his disease and chooses to focus on his life.”

I am a very first time film maker from New Jersey and just lately finished my very first short film. They all pushed me to submit my film to some film festivals and wanted me to submit to some local film festivals as well. During the submission method I noticed that there was a film festival in Atlantic City that catered only to short films. It also was featuring a lot of retrospective film of some directors I wanted to meet. They also had a fantastic panel of judges who I was also familiar with and would enjoy to have them view my function.

After about a two month method of calling all the festivals I started receiving my acceptance letters to each and every 1 of the festivals but the Atlantic City short film festival. All of my friends in the market advised me that most initial time filmmakers do not get accepted to any festivals let alone 4 out of 5. With that becoming stated I felt fairly great about what had recently taken spot with all my acceptance letters and I was ready to move on. Then it finally came I was driving house from my day job and I received a call from Steve Stanulis 1 of the Co founders of the festival and he let me know personally that I was not only accepted but how significantly he loved the film.

All the others just sent me a letter and here he is Steve Stanulis, a properly respected actor and producer in the enterprise telling me how very much he loved my function. He also let me know that there were more than a thousand submissions and they only accepted twenty five films. When we arrived at the festival we ran into Tracy James the other Cofounder of the festival and he introduced himself and congratulated me on the project as properly once again nothing but class. A couple of of the actors in my film recognized Tracy James from a lot of the high profile work he has performed in the acting and modeling world. It was almost like speaking to Tom Cruize but Tracy was taller.

He told me what a good honor it was to be selected to this festival and I need to be proud of my achievement as a 1st time filmmaker. My film was picked to play on day two of the festival and when it finally screened the location was packed. What a fantastic honor to have all of the industry’s top people today not only view my film but give me great feedback on my perform as nicely. So I wanted to just thank the guys Steve Stanulis and Tracy James for throwing a top notch festival and giving me a night I will never forget. I did not win the Atlantic City film festival but the contacts and feedback I had received were a lot far more useful. My subsequent project is going to be a characteristic film and I just received word that the Atlantic City brief film festival has now grow to be the Atlantic City international festival and without a doubt will be submitting my next film there in 2011.

A film festival is an extended presentation of movies at a screening venue. It can be on a particular theme, or focus on a specific director’s work. You can often interact with the director, cast, and critics after the screening. It is a great way to meet others who share your interest in movies belonging to a particular genre. New York’s first Dominican Film Festival began this month. It touches on political issues, as well as concerns of the Dominican diaspora.

Some film festivals are free, so you can enjoy viewing movies which may not be available for viewing otherwise. Award winning films, which are international, can also be part of the event. These are usually annual events, organized by cultural organizations.

Look at details of previous year film festivals to understand the kind of movies which are screened by the organizing body. This will help you determine whether they are in sync with your taste. Even if you have watched a few of the films before, you are likely to appreciate the other movies being screened, because they will also belong to the same genre.

A body which is focused on justice can screen films on slavery, and lead a discussion on issues related to freedom. In case you are a law student, this will be of interest to you. If you are an amateur film maker, you can ask questions of professional film makers attending the festival. As you are unlikely to come in contact with these kinds of people in daily life, you should prepare any questions you have for them in advance.

Search online for organizations in your area which hold film festivals. Sign up for their email newsletters to stay informed about dates and venue details. You can go to these events with your friends, family, or colleagues, and expose them to new movies.

Some film festivals specialize in short films. Others focus on a different theme every year, such as Asian cinema, horror, or a famous director’s work. Often there is a competitive category, which celebrity judges from the field of cinema to evaluate them and award prizes.

Watching a film on the big screen is a different experience from watching it on television, or on your laptop. The atmosphere at events of this nature is often festive, and you can enjoy spotting celebrities watching movies too.

You may have to stand in lines to enter, so you should try to reach the venue before the time of the screening. Attending a film festival will be a memorable experience.

Engineering Firm Post-Produces A Digital Short Film That Will Be Screened At 2006 Cannes Film Festival










San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2006

Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. used its proprietary Digital Video To Film transfer process to create the 35mm print of the short film entitled “Atenea Y Afrodita” that will be shown at “Tous Les Cinemas du Monde” program of the world-famous festival, on May 24 at 1pm.

The 2006 “Tous Les Cinema du Monde” program features the work of over 80 international producers. This is the first year that an entry from Venezuela was selected to be shown.

The short film “Atenea Y Afrodita”, that was produced by Harold Lopez Garroz in Venezuela, was filmed using digital video camera technology and editted using non-linear computer editing technology. The producer and team mastered a digital video (DV) tape, then sent the master to Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. who performed the transfer of the DV tape from the video domain to a 35mm motion picture print. This print, known as the Release Print, is capable of being projected in virtually any motion picture theater worldwide.

Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. completed the transfer at its San Diego facility and using various service firms in Burbank CA. The transfer process is as follows. Durrenberger Engineering, Inc. post-produces a 35mm negative of the short film videotape at its San Diego facility. Then the negative is sent to a motion picture film development lab in Burbank, where the film is developed, then to a sound stage facility where sound is synchorized to picture, and finally, back to the development lab which makes the final 35mm print.

Durrenberger Engineering, Inc has been producing DV To Film Transfers for over five years. The firm has transferred several feature films which have been distributed in Europe, USA and Mexico, as well as many short films that have been screened in festivals such as Ottawa International Animation Festival, etc. In addition, the firm has produced movie trailers for films such as “Word Wars” (Seventh Arts Releasing), “Stuey” (Starring Michael Imperioli) and “Unspeakable” (Starring Dennis Hopper).
