    Tellofilms V - The Final Frontier (of the Throwaways)

    in Entertainment

    F4F Radio wraps up a busy September with its third show in two weeks, as writer/director/producer Christin Mell returns for another installment in her series of bimonthly appearances to discuss Tellofilms.com.  This time we'll be revisiting "The Throwaways".  When we first talked about this serious look at the difficult decisions faced by teenagers fleeing their homophobic parents with Christin and star Bridget McManus in the spring, the project wasn't even finished casting.  Less than six months later, the webseries was debuting on Tellofilms, and today you can see the first four episodes.  We'll discuss the filming process, the initial response, and any future plans for "The Throwaways" with Christin and writer Jessica King, who was on earlier this year to discuss "I Hate Tommy Finch".  SPEAKING of which, we will also look at an as-of-yet untitled webseries set during the American Civil War that, like "IHTF", will start out as a stage play before being filmed and edited for the Internet.

    Part 4: Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights author Laura Elvebak

    in Books

    Houston, TX – If solving a mystery requires paying attention to even the smallest of details, writing a mystery is no different. Ideas can come from anywhere at any time; it’s simply a matter of being able to recognize them when they present themselves.
    While working across the street from Houston’s Tranquility Park, long a refuge for the city’s homeless, mystery writer Laura Elvebak noticed a large mound of grass.
    “I looked at that and thought, ‘What a great place for a body!’ recalls Elvebak. “That was the beginning of the book.”
    Laura Elvebak is the author of the acclaimed Niki Alexander mystery series: 2008’s Less Dead and its follow-up, 2009’s Lost Witness. The series follows Niki Alexander, an ex-cop who quits the Houston police force to help the city’s troubled street children. Elvebak’s compelling stories and rich characters have made the books a favorite among readers, many of whom have described her novels as “impossible to put down.”
    Elvebak’s books focus on the traumatic lives of Houston’s runaway teens. In Less Dead, Jade, an abandoned 15-year-old, stumbles upon the body of a dead councilman. When Jade goes missing, Niki’s ex-partner asks for her help. “Serial killers look at runaways, throwaways, prostitutes and homeless people as less dead,” explains Elvebak. “If something happens to them, nobody cares. But Niki does care and she’s going to help them.”
    Now retired, Elvebak has devoted herself to writing full-time. Fans of the Niki Alexander mystery series will be pleased to learn she’s currently working on a third Niki Alexander novel tentatively titled A Matter of Revenge.

    Christin Mell, Bridget McManus, & the return of McManusland

    in Television

    F4F Radio kicks off March by welcoming back Tellofilms.com creator Christin Mell, who will be making her fourth visit to the show.  Tonight will be the second in a series of bimonthly appearances Mell will make in 2012 to discuss the next big project(s) premiering on her website.  This time we'll be joined by actress and stand-up comedian Bridget McManus ("Brunch With Bridget", "Cowgirl Up") to talk about the return of her webseries "McManusLand", which will begin airing its second season in early April at Tellofilms.  McManus and her real-life wife Karman Kregloe are technically playing themselves as subjects of a documentary, but the events of each episode are pure farce, similar to Larry David's life on "Curb Your Enthusiasm".  Not only will we learn about what to expect from Season 2, but also we'll hear from Mell about "The Throwaways", a brand-new webseries in which Tellofilms will be employing "transmedia storytelling" - or the telling of stories across multiple platforms - for the first time.

    An Evening with Kam Kardashian (The Other Sister)

    in Entertainment

    Tonight F4F welcomes back producer/writer/director Christin Mell for the third part in an ongoing bimonthly series, where we discuss the latest projects being created at the Tellofilms website.  This month we'll begin by getting an update on an upcoming webseries we learned about in March, a drama about lesbian teen runaways called "The Throwaways".  After that we'll be joined by Kam Kardashian - you know, the "other" Kardashian sister?  The lesbian one?  No?  Well, if you haven't heard of her, it's probably because she likes it that way.  She'll be here to talk about the ongoing web reality series about her life, her relationship with her family (such as it is), and her attempts to live outside of the long shadow cast by her "famous for being famous" sisters.

    The Hidden Story of America's Prostituted Children and the Battle to Save Them, by Julian Sher

    in Family

    Julian Sher joins Dave and Bill today to talk about his new book "Somebody's Daughter: The Hidden Story of America's Prostituted Children and The Battle to Save Them"! These situations can occur out of a simple stupid argument with parents, distanced relationships, poor adult role models, runaways, or leading the clubbing or partying scene, etc... One wrong choice and their lives can be ruined forever by predators who are anxious to use them for prostitution and human trafficking!
     

    They are America's forgotten children: the hundreds of thousands of child prostitutes who walk the "tracks" -- the Las Vegas Strip, the casinos of Atlantic City, the truck stops on interstates and the street corners of our cities. Most people wrongly believe sex trafficking involves young women from foreign lands but the vast majority of teens caught in the sex trade are American girls -- the runaways and the throwaways few people care about. They become victims of ruthless pimps whose lifestyle is often glorified in the media and in the rap music scene.
     

    From the streets of Dallas where the police have set up a pioneering High Risk Victims Unit to the glittering casinos of Las Vegas and Atlantic City where the FBI's "Innocence Lost" investigators try to dismantle major pimping criminal enterprises, Somebody's Daughter takes you behind the scenes to expose one of America's most under-reported crimes: the trafficking of American girls on American streets.
