You may recognize Azmyth from this popular commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Afufjv_6-t4
But he has done so much more than just this.....Azmyth Kaminski started out as a DJ. Little did he know that a new career path would blindside him very soon. A fateful meeting in late 2007 led him to Sande Alessi's office after being told he had a great pirate look. They were presently casting Pirates Of The Caribbean 3. Two weeks later he had a fitting & was working at the Disney ranch in the opening scene. His 1st break came immediately as he got chosen out of 500 pirates to be featured as 1 of 21 pirates who would actually be hung at the gallows. At the beginning of 2008, he was slipped into a casting for a new Mark Burnett reality show called Pirate Master. During this last round of Nation-wide casting he was selected as 1 of 16 members to take this undiscovered journey to the island of Dominica where the show was filmed. He did extremely well on the show as the most feared competitor, alas strategy got the better of him & he was cut adrift during episode 9.During this whirlwind period of a crash course in acting, he also began picking up pieces of producing. Although modeling is often about staying attractive, he couldn't help enjoying stunts that he had performed himself. He found a new love in performing his own stunts where possible during his acting roles & other castings. Since he was helping out on so many projects he began helping cast actors & models as well. At this point he decided to create his present company Manifest Station. These days you can find Azmyth DJ'ing for television shows & focusing efforts mainly in the production realm on music videos, commercials & upcoming feature films. But don't be surprised if you hear him on the radio soon or catch him waltzing across your TV screen in your very own home.

On September 8th, join the Talk34 gang as we chat with the Three-Time Legend of Discovery Channel's "Naked & Afraid", E.J. 'Skullcrusher' Snyder !
Freshly off the amazingly popular Discovery Channel sensation "Naked & Afraid XL", E.J. will talk with us about all three (yes, he did it THREE times) journeys into the middle of the jungle to survive, taking no food, water, or WiFi with him.
"Skullcrusher" is a modern-day combination of Tarzan, Teddy Roosevelt, and a buck-naked Captain America. Survival isn't enough for E.J. He's much more about thriving under any circumstances.
If you're a fan of the show, you know E.J., and here's your chance to talk with him and hear him discuss his experiences out there in the middle of nowhere, living off the land, starving, thirsty, and yet still kicking-butt. At any time, he could have thrown in the loincloth, but that is not E.J.'s style. Kill or be killed.... That's a much better description, as the man will dive headlong into any challenge with a smile on his face (and that's about all he has with him).
Don't miss what will be the biggest episode in Talk34's history. EJ "Skullcrusher" Snyder, baby!!
[Mr. Snyder has promised to be clothed during the entire radio interview]
Jade Justad, regarding "Creased":
CREASED is a very personal film for me and by far the most intimate subject matter I have ever approached as a filmmaker. My inspirations and cinematic references for this film include the aesthetics of the Instagram account of Brandy Melville, the obsessive teenage behavior in “The Bling Ring,” Julie Chen’s story on The Talk and just as importantly the reactions of her co-anchors to her surgery, the close-ups and sensuality of “Blue is the Warmest Color,” the Korean American woman who waxed my bikini line as she told me I had more beautiful eyes than her because I have a crease, the emotional and inventive cinematography of “True Detective,” that guy in college who loved Buddhism when he was sober and racist jokes when he was on the Jack Daniels, the long takes and character driven heart of the “Before Sunset” trilogy, the woman at the Clinique make-up counter that offered tips to open up and “westernize” my eyes when I was thirteen, the youthful humor, verve, and fraying friendships of “Y Tu Mama Tambien,” and that time when I was a teenager and I looked in the mirror and wished a white girl was looking back at me. This film is for that girl. And all the girls like her. ”
J-Dub will bring us his musical guest, of course, and Mr. Hollywood Joel Casey will update us on what's going on in film industry.
