    Movie Director Brad Silverman on Coming to Christ from a Jewish Background...

    in Movies

    He is a writer and movie director. He is best known for the films, "Grace Unplugged", "No Greater Love", and "It Really Happened: The Flight of the Apollo 11". He is staff writer/director and vice president of production for Coram Deo Studios, Inc. 


    In an interview with MOVIEGUIDE, he spoke of how he came to Jesus Christ and why he makes movies that glorify God. He said of his faith journey, "I was in my early to mid-20s. I'm of Jewish background. A dear friend just started dialoguing with me about, really at that time, the Jewish roots of the Scriptures, which, ironically, was very foreign to me. I really didn't know the origins of the Scriptures were of such Jewish influence. Over the next three, four years, as our friendship grew, the Lord just broke me. Or I should say this: He allowed me to sort of achieve the effects of me running the show, and I just ran myself right into a brick wall. So, I came to faith in Christ, and just walked away from the entertainment industry for about a decade. My career was actually just starting to go somewhere as a writer/director and I walked away for about a decade. I wanted to go into full time ministry, and thought that's where the Lord was taking me until about four or five years ago, when I felt Him calling me to start making movies again."


    When asked how God sustained him once he returned to the film industry, he said, "When I got back into the film business, I had nothing to lose. If you told me today, 'You can never make movies again' if it meant compromising what I believe to be honoring to God, the answer is no. I walk away. So we did a film a few years back, and then did "Grace Unplugged", and it was sort of like I'd rather not make movies than make movies that I feel dishonor God and the Scriptures."


    ...His name is Brad Silverman.

    Black Geek Movie Talk: Regression

    in Movies

    This week we review "Regression" starring Ethan Hawke, Emma Watson, and David Thewlis.  Within the context of 80's hysteria over satanic cults, a detective (Hawke) and psychiatrist (Thewlis) investigate the rape of a young woman (Watson) in the Midwest.   "Regression" was directed by Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar whose 2001 flick "The Others" was probably underrated by most critics and movie-goers.  Amenábar is also responsible for "Abre Los Ojos", the trippy, existential screenplay Cameron Crowe adapted into "Vanilla Sky".  Tune in today at 1:30 PM PST to find out if this is a must-see or must-skip.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "The SAFE Program also aims to unite Black and poor communities by actively recruiting and hiring a number of our youth to help implement these much-needed services. Both drivers and escorts will be recruited from among the young and unemployed in our community, a strategythat at the same time will cut down the number of youth who would consider snatching a pocket­ book just to get a little change. In addition, drivers and escorts will be given extensive training in their respective fields, with both groups receiving inten­sive safety and FIRST-aid instruction.


    State, federal, and local funding of the SAFE Program will also mean addi­tional transportation-at least five vans with a seating capacity of twelve per­ sons each, plus the hiring ofa full-time program director and assistants. All totaled, the proposed annual budget for the SAFE Program comes to slightly less than two hundred thousand dollars ($195,530).


    E orts to acquire funds for the SAFE Program have not yet been success­ful. A formal proposal has been presented before Oakland Model Cities, a fed­erally funded poverty program, but that agency has made no commitment. A portion of Oakland's $4.5 million in revenue-sharing funds has been suggested for the SAFE Program, but the city administrators have been typically mum. Complete and adequate funding for the SAFE Program was, in fact, an integral part ofthe Seale-Brown Fourteen-Point Program to Rebuild Oakland in the 1973 campaign and, far from being abandoned, it will be included in initiatives and referendums.


    The SAFE funding proposal, like the program itself, is an argument for our protection instead of our abuse by public service agencies, which theoreti­ cally function on our behalf. SAFE is a simple but basic program designed to help and secure the lives of a very important yet often forgotten segment of our communities: the older people." HUEY P. NEWTON

    The Night Time Fiasco Welcomes Back Helion Prime!

    in Rock Music

    Helion Prime was first conceived from a common love of metal and all things science. The band was founded when Jason Ashcraft (of Dire Peril) asked Heather Michele (of Graveshadow) to form a project with him. Between the two, they had worked with such artists as Mark Briody (Jag Panzer), Brittney Slayes (Unleash the Archers), Andy LaRocque (King Diamond), Ralph Scheepers (Primal Fear), Arjen Anthony Lucassen (Ayreon/Star One), and Niklas Isfeldt (Dream Evil). The concept; power metal with themes based on actual scientific theories with the occasional sci-fi tribute. The name Helion Prime was borrowed from an alien planet featured in the film "Chronicles of Riddick," a movie the two were great fans of. She accepted the exciting proposition without hesitation. The two recorded their first demo track in June of 2014, and with the help of members from Dire Peril and Axiom, Helion Prime debuted their first live performance in August 2014 at the Boardwalk in Orangevale, CA. The dynamic duo then released their first EP on February 26th, 2015 with a full length album in the works. Helion Prime’s lineup was completed after bringing Jeremy Steinhouse on bass and Justin Herzer (of Axiom) on drums. In August of 2015, Helion Prime set out on their first tour, playing shows in Oregon, Nevada, California, and Utah. Their debut album will be out at the end of February, and the band (who payed us a visit early last year) will be back on the show to premiere some new songs for all of you to hear, so be sure to tune in!!!
