Stars shine in support of Pat Tillman

For Immediate Release

Stars shine in support of Pat Tillman

2nd Annual Scott Medlock Celebrity Invitational Golf Classic and private concert with The Doors' Robby Krieger benefiting the Pat Tillman Foundation surpasses expectations!

Hollywood, CA (12/01/09) -- The 2nd Annual Scott Medlock Celebrity Invitational Golf Classic and private rock concert with The Doors' Robby Krieger benefiting the Pat Tillman Foundation surpassed everyone's expectations, says event chair, Scott Medlock. "We are honored that so many friends joined the cause and donated both their time and resources to make this event such a resounding success." Co-founder, Robby Krieger of the Doors went on to say, "we saw today that spirit triumphs schedules and pocketbooks. The Tillman Foundation changes the lives of people every day, our goal was to contribute to their being able to continue doing that, and everyone, from players to sponsors, family to friends, has made that a reality."

The tournament, which was held at the stunning Malibu Country Club was won by the all-star team of George Lazenby (aka James Bond from "Her Majesty's Secret Service"), Scott Elrod (who many remember as "Cash" from ABC's "Men In Trees") and businessman David Katz. A close second, and almost winners of the hole-in-one grand prize of four new Mercedes-Benz' from W.I. Simonson Mercedes-Benz were Michael Chiklis star of FOX's "The Shield", Kenny Johnson also from "The Shield", Stephen Bishop (star of "The Rundown") and TNT's Aldis Hodge from "Leverage".

"24's" Jaime Gomez, and "G.I. Joe's" Gunner Wright, teamed up with CBS's "Dancing With The Stars" heart throbs, Driton "Tony" Dovolani and Maks aka Maksim Chmerkovskiy while Kevin Dobson ("Days of Our Lives") and SyFy's "Stargate SG-1" star Christopher Judge played with founders Scott Medlock and Robby Krieger - both teams within inches of capturing the second hole-in-one top prize of four stunning new Harley Davidson Motorcycles!

Scott Medlock, one of the Tillman family's close friends said of Pat, "Pat (Tillman) gave up a $3.6 million dollar contract with the NFL-Arizona Cardinals to go fight for our country. Pat unfortunately lost his life while serving in Afghanistan. Last year the foundation was able to give over $650,000.00 in scholarships to vets & their families who have been impacted by the Iraq & Afghanistan wars. These scholarships allow families who have lost loved ones, or have been crippled physically and or emotionally, the opportunity to still impact our great nation in a positive way while contributing with their gifts & talents. It also educates the youth of our future & carries the Legacy Pat started by serving others & paying the ultimate price. This is truly an opportunity to invest into something so much bigger than we are and our sponsors like Best Buy are making it possible." Special guest, J. R. Martinez of "All My Children" a wounded vet himself, couldn't agree more and spent the day circling the course, reiterating to all present the value of their participation.

One of the crowning moments, beyond the Tommy Bahama Rum stop, or the Titlest Tent, or even the Zino Platinum Cigars that were driven about the course, was clearly the changing booth provided by Loudmouth Golf Apparel so that every player could don the company's completely outrageous pants and shorts (skorts and shorts for the women) including Transamerica Insurance & Investment's President Ken Kilbane; Johnny Carson Foundation Director Larry Witzer, his brother Marc, Waste Management Vice President, Larry Metter and HUB International's Vice President, Lee Davis! Event photographs are tell tale, as players swaggered about the awards ceremony and continued on at the Canyon Club's private rock concert with The Doors' Robby Krieger, sipping on a pint of Budweiser, a glass of Zealear Wine, or Kettle One martini in their fresh, very 'Loudmouth'-ed togs!

Kicking off the concert, the Charity Angels rounded out the last spots on the Opportunity Board, which included an Gibson Guitar autographed by The Doors' Robby Krieger complete private lesson with the legend himself! Special guest, Adrian Young of "No Doubt" also took the stage in an impromptu performance, with rising rock sensation 13-year old, Sacha Edwards.

"We are very excited to this event growing annually...2010 will be wild!" said Krieger. Additional featured sponsors include Monster Energy, Honda, Taylor-Made Golf, Cheesecake Factory, Arnold Palmer Ice-Tee, Captured Images, Stoli Vodka, B3DigiGrafx, Manchester Financial, HUB International, Hansen's Natural, Hill Financial Advisors, Culligan, Travis Mathew Apparel and Popular Press Media Group (PPMG).

Strategic target hit in first ‘Atomic Dreams’ Strike

For Immediate Release

Strategic target hit in first ‘Atomic Dreams’ Strike

Mobile provides ultimate platform for “Atomic Dreams: The Lost Journal of J. Robert Oppenheimer” -- a cautionary tale for all nations

Hollywood, CA (07/09/09) – The rising swell of fear surrounding the imminent threat of atomic warfare has once again become commonplace in our daily news. Organizations such as Global Zero have partnered with the most significant politicians and celebrities of our current culture to draw attention to what dangers lie ahead, if left unchecked.


Inspired by this movement, three men, Jazan Wild (founder Carnival Comics, comic creator, writer, songwriter/musician), Jonathan Elias (co-creator, producer, composer & creator/composer of Global Zero’s "1000 Suns") and David Uslan (producer, co-founder COG1 Entertainment) combining extraordinary talents and values have created a seemingly innocuous comic book that shares a salient message with every Smart Phone user from North America, to Europe and soon Asia (including China): if we do not learn from our past mistakes, we are destined to make them again -- namely the atomic bomb.

On July 4, 2009, deliberately on American Independence Day, Carnival Comics, released one of the first-ever digitally-delivered comic books to the mobile world: “Atomic Dreams: The Lost Journal of J. Robert Oppenheimer.” The comic is first running on RIM Technology’s Blackberry and Google’s Android, and will be followed by both Apple’s iPhone and Nokia next week. “Atomic Dreams” will mark the third-ever comic to be delivered via Blackberry (the first two were also Carnival Comic properties) and the first-ever on the Nokia. Additionally, Carnival Comics has just been notified that “Atomic Dreams” will be the first-ever digitally-delivered comic book in China, a launch that is expected next month.

J. Robert Oppenheimer was a brilliant man and a father, yet he referred to himself as “the destroyer of worlds.” Did he know what he was creating when he set forth to develop the atomic bomb? Did he fully understand the scope of horror that he would unleash? “Atomic Dreams” filters through Oppenheimer’s inner torment and, in the most visual manner, appeals to today’s youth to take heed from the painful lessons of the past.

“People have taken notice,” says producer Uslan of Wild and Elias’ “Atomic Dreams” creation, “from Hollywood studios that are lobbying to make this comic book into a full length feature film, leading politicians on Capitol Hill, to e-mails from young adults across the nation. The immediate response is a powerful confirmation that we are not alone in wanting to save our world and future. Jazan Wild and Jonathan Elias are creating more than simply a story; they are stirring the cauldron of awareness.”

EYEBORGS, in the words of Ben Austwick of QuietEarth.com, is a "sci-fi... that tackles government surveillance, War on Terror paranoia and good old-fashioned technofear head-on. In a future USA where terrorist atrocities have ushered in autonomous, roaming surveillance robots with police powers - the titular eyeborgs - the President's unassuming rock singer nephew finds himself at the centre of a conspiracy that hinges on the evidence of the camera vs that of the human eye."

Austwick goes on to say that EYEBORGS displays, "...superb action sequences the likes of which I haven't seen in a long time. They really are spectacular... Somehow the CGI is more realistic and effective than mega-budget Hollywood spectaculars like Transformers, and the editing is better by an order of magnitude, consistently coherent and punchy. There's no flab in these scenes - though they do leave you crying out for more.

The central theme of surveillance is tackled imaginatively, and while at first the story seems to linearly explore our doubts about government power it ends up taking us in a different and unexpected direction. This multi-layered film making reminded me of Verhoeven in his Robocop heyday".

Almost immediately, she booked the role of Young Danielle Rousseau on the hit ABC series "LOST," a guest role on CBS's "Cold Case" and a supporting role in HBO's "Temple Grandin" starring Claire Danes. In addition to pursuing a professional career, Melissa is currently at the University of Southern California, in the Thematic Option Honors Program. She is pursuing a major in Political Science, minoring in history.

Farman is represented by Peter James, of Prodigy Talent Group.
