'HUNGER HITS HOME' A Special Presentation (video)


The documentary will premiere on Food Network on April 14th at 7 pm CST, presents and unfiltered examination of the hunger crisis plaguing our nation's youth.


HUNGRY AT HOME goes on a cross-country odyssey from New York City to Washington, D.C., suburban Virginia and Texas' prosperous Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, giving viewers a bird's-eye view of the hunger crisis through the lives of three hardworking families struggling to make ends meet. In Norfolk, Virginia, an ex-military man with four children must take a civilian job for a fraction of his service pay. A single father in Allen, Texas, is on the verge of losing his home and unable to feed his 10-year-old son. A young couple in New York City lacks access to the fresh fruits and vegetables their children desperately need. All of them have discovered that no community is immune to childhood hunger.
And in the halls of the nation's capitol, funding cuts threaten existing assistance programs even as the need for them increases. As politicians debate the need for 15 separate federal nutritional assistance programs, the problem continues to grow.

But HUNGRY AT HOME also offers hope for children in need. The film profiles some of America's heroes in the continuing fight against childhood hunger, including a determined food pantry founder who makes the battle personal and an elementary school principal who refuses to let his students go hungry. It documents the work of government officials and not-for-profit leaders who will move mountains to mobilize necessary resources. With efforts large and small, these people are helping to fulfill Share Our Strength's commitment to ending childhood hunger in America by 2015.

Each family profiled in HUNGRY AT HOME finds unique solutions to their unique problems, utilizing traditional methods including SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps), as well as innovative ideas such as subsidized Community Supported Agriculture baskets for families without access to fresh foods, or in-classroom meals that ensure students get a balanced breakfast. But with problems this diverse, anti-hunger activists agree that there is no quick fix to the devastating effects of hunger on American children. They also agree that finding a solution is one of the most critical issues facing Americans today.

WIN ADVANCED SCREENING TICKETS TO SEE "BULLY!"

Hey ‘HOUSTON’ movie fans! I've patiently been waiting for this movie. "BULLY" actually hit selected theaters today in New York and Los Angeles...and guess what? I got the hook up for the Houston screening. I really think EVERY parent, teacher, kid should see this movie. I know I am.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, The Bully Project is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart are those with huge stakes in this issue whose stories each represent a different facet of Americas bullying crisis. The Bully Project follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children. As teachers, administrators, kids and parents struggle to find answers, The Bully Project examines the dire consequences of bullying through the testimony of strong and courageous youth. Through the power of their stories, the film aims to be a catalyst for change in the way we deal with bullying as parents, teachers, children and society as a whole.

Houston Represent! "Detention" trailer! (video)



Hello movie fans! Recently...the internet released the trailer for the upcoming horror/slasher flick - DETENTION.  Are you ready ladies? The film stars Josh Hutcherson of THE HUNGER GAMES and Dane Cook and will hit theaters on Friday, April 13th...it's the perfect date to release a movie like this!

BYAHAHAHAHAHA!

By the looks of the trailer...we're going  for a little rideeeeeee.


OK...some of you got that...and some of you didn't. (lol) But seriously...not only is the release date cool...but the Director Joseph Kahn is...(drum roll please)... from H-Town...as in HOUSTON! Check out the 411 below...you might already be a fan of his music videos! POW!


Director Joseph Kahn was raised in the suburbs of Houston, Texas where his parents moved in the calculation of enrolling him in the area's prestigious medical schools.

However, the young Kahn quickly degenerated into a comic book junkie, television/movie addict, and overall pop culture sponge.  Derailing any hopes of a proper job, he began his directing career in his teens, shooting skateboarding videos of his friends while working as a popcorn concessionaire, grocery store auditor (can counter), and hotel front desk clerk to help fund these projects.  He eventually enrolled at NYU where after a year and a half into school, he dropped out to embrace the emerging market of hip hop videos.

Within two years Kahn executed dozens of low budget videos where he served as a one man army, acting as his own cinematographer, editor, and production designer. During this time, he developed his self-taught filmmaking skills that would launch him to the forefront of a new generation of emerging directors.
Moving to Los Angeles in 1995, Kahn became highly sought in the music video industry, eventually working with diverse artists such as: U2, The Chemical Brothers, Gwen Stefani, Blink 182, Eminem, DMX, Wu-Tang Clan, Backstreet Boys, TLC, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Aerosmith, Faith Hill, Moby, Jamiroquai, Nelly, Justin Timberlake, George Michael, Kelly Clarkson, Busta Ryhmes, Garbage, Korn, Janet Jackson, Black Eyed Peas, Destiny's Child, and many more.

Today he is credited with launching and expanding the careers of many of his artists, and has collected multiple Music Video Production awards.  He has won several MTV Music Video Awards with nominations for best video for Brandy & Monica "The Boy is Mine", and Brintey Spears "Toxic."  He won his first Grammy for Eminem's "Without Me" video which also won the MTV VMA's Best Video of the Year, as well as Best Director. His video for Muse "Knights of Cydonia" won the Los Angeles Film Festival Audience Award.
In 1999, he started his own production company, Supermega, which is now housed under HSI Productions. He has directed commercials for Acura, BMW, Ford, Vodafone, Budweiser, British Telecom, Miller, Bacardi, Asics, HP, Saab, T-Mobile, Target, Coors Light, Nascar, and Playstation. His Fox/Nascar campaign won a Clio for visual effects.

In 2004, he made his feature film debut with the Warner Brothers tongue in-cheek action film TORQUE. Starring Martin Henderson and Ice Cube, the guilty pleasure motorcycle movie was a modern riff on Roger Corman popcorn flicks.

Said Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times: "The irony is that for pure cinematic artistry it arguably outdistances some of the more prestigious current offerings. It is a very knowing venture, marking the feature debut of music video veteran Joseph Kahn."

Kahn currently resides in Los Angeles.
