I will ALWAYS respect your privacy and the privacy of your family. I will NEVER stalk you, approach you, hunt you or run after you in order to get a picture or an auto-graph. I will not scream or shout at you nor will I try to touch or grab  you. I will only take your picture, if you attend an official, public or red carpet event. Photos I take of you are NOT FOR SALE - I only display them on my website for people to enjoy. Occasionally, event organiz-ers may be interested in publishing some images to document their event. I am appalled by the ruthless and reckless behavior of some photographers and want you to know, that I do not approve of their "work ethics". I hope, that if we meet someday, you will recognize "the friendly photographer". Thank you.   Dina, 4seasons Photography Supporter of the Anti-Paparazzi Law

Richard L. Jackson - Actor
Remember the Chicken Farmer in No Country for Old Men and his encounter with Javier Bardem's character Anton? Or the successful TV show Walker, Texas Ranger? Richard recently also starred in Eric Braeden's production The Man Who Came Back, and as a true Texan he even landed his own segment in the Austrian TV Production Fremder Stern Texas.
Richard Jackson has quite a resume and when you check out his website, make sure to watch his impressive Demo Reel. For a good laugh, I recommend watching the Century Bank video!

Tom "Lefty" Leftwich - Author / Singer / Songwriter
With his first book  Gold Mining! Come Along for the Ride  Tom brings you an informal gold mining experience and education gained from thousands of hours high-banking, sluicing, dredging, crevassing and panning for ol’ big yeller. His search has been fully rewarding in his quest for gold, but his greatest reward has been in the fun and friendships he has dearly enjoyed along the way.
This autobiography records his experiences, mining techniques, inventions, gadgets and humor surrounding activities associated with a journey of twenty-seven years gold mining. Herein he has tried to bring to life the wonderful joy of success, the occasional disappointments that every prospector has experienced and the unforgettable warehouse of memories that are shared in some measure by every gold miner. This book is Tom's personal recollection of that long and wonderful journey.
“Come along for the ride.” You won’t be disappointed!

Albert Magnoli - Academy Award Winning Writer / Director / Producer / Editor
With Purple Rain, Albert Magnoli created a one-of-a-kind cult film catapulting charismatic musician Prince into a major star and winning the musician an Oscar for best music. To this day, this successful film is enjoyed by generations of fans around the world.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0536299/bio
From the IMDb website: Albert Magnoli graduated from the Film School at the University of Southern California. While there he completed ten student films, culminating with his Thesis Film project Jazz (1979), which he wrote, produced, edited, and directed. Focusing on the lives of three Los Angeles jazz musicians, Jazz went on to win 15 filmmaking awards in this country and abroad, including a Student Academy Award. The 23-minute film is listed in the 1983 edition of "The Encyclopedia Britannica" as "the most honored student film made in this country in the last twenty years."
In 1984 rock star Prince and his manager came looking for a director to helm Prince's feature film debut. Magnoli went to Prince's hometown, Minneapolis, and sequestered himself in a hotel room for four weeks. There he researched and wrote the script for Purple Rain (1984).
As director, writer and editor, Magnoli delivered Purple Rain to the theaters eleven months later. The "Hollywood Reporter" described Purple Rain as "sensational and highly visual -- an accomplished and sophisticated example of storytelling." Released by Warner Bros. in 900 theaters, Purple Rain topped the box office in its first weekend, knocking Ghost Busters (1984) from the #1 position. To date, Purple Rain has grossed over $125 million worldwide.
Magnoli then directed the critically acclaimed concert film Sign 'o' the Times (1987) for Prince. He was then commissioned to develop the sequel to Purple Rain for Warner Bros., which began a four-year association with Prince, culminating with Magnoli becoming Prince's manager and handling his personal and creative affairs for two years. The soundtrack album for Batman (1989) was created during this union, and two #1 videos, Batdance and Partyman, were written and directed by Magnoli to promote the Batman film and soundtrack.
In 1989, Magnoli was asked to take over the directing reins from Andrey Konchalovskiy on Tango & Cash (1989) starring Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell. The $65-million film was behind schedule and over budget, and Magnoli was asked to begin shooting immediately. Four days later he arrived on the set, shot for 40 days and delivered the picture to the studio in time for a Christmas release just two months later. Tango & Cash was a commercial success, grossing over $150 million worldwide. Magnoli then directed Born to Run (1993) (TV) for Fox Television, starring Richard Grieco. Filmed in just 24 days, the $3.4-million film was critically acclaimed.
Albert Magnoli is currently busy writing screenplays - his body of work is listed on IMDb.com

Drums in the Night - Review by Variety
Article: Zwei Halbbrueder gehen auf's Ganze (in German)
http://www.anafricanelection.com
From the Sundance Film Festival website: "In a world plagued by stolen elections, secret government agendas, and a renewed interest in the exploitation of African natural resources, what value does democracy offer, particularly in the tumultuous region of West Africa? For Ghana, a nation that has been Africa’s barometer of political stability, democracy may mean the difference between peace and prosperity—and murderous chaos under military coup.
An African Election is a remarkable documentary that grants viewers unprecedented access to the anatomy of Ghana’s 2008 presidential elections. Capturing the intrigue of electioneering, the intensity of the vote-counting process, and the mood of the countrymen whose fate lies precariously in the balance, director Jarreth Merz’s coverage unfolds with all the tension of a political thriller, revealing the emotions, passions, and ethical decisions that both threaten—and maintain—the integrity of the democratic process. An African Election illuminates a beacon of hope for Africa and for the value and vitality of democracy today."
