Media Legends: Evening with Liz Smith, Howard Rosenman & Fern Mallis

THE UPCOMING EVENT that Todd is producing ON MONDAY JUNE 9 HIT THE PRESS TODAY -- Liz Smith wrote in her column -- "HERE’S your chance to see in person three so-called “MEDIA LEGENDS” at The Players Club, 16 Gramercy Park South, on Monday June 9th, 7:30 p.m. Film producer and actor Howard Rosenman (he made the AIDS quilt a legend — and you saw him in “Milk”) plus the beloved fashion guru Fern Mallis and yours truly talking about life, love, careers, movies and scandals. This costs $75 bucks or $50 for Players Club members. I can’t imagine what the three of us can possibly say that hasn’t been said before. But with these two “stars” I will do my best. So please fill up the room for us."

Ain't It Cool News review below... AMAZING!!
http://www.aintitcool.com/node/65622

This film has basically no awareness and that’s just gotta change. GHOST TEAM ONE is a party film. It’s consistently better than you can really expect. A film about a pair of friends that decide to shoot a paranormal investigation of their home that they share with a year+ sober roommate – who loathes them. They discover their home was a brothel of extreme supernatural note – and then just hold on, cuz s**t gets real hilarious. This is a bawdry affair – sure you might think you’ve seen this before with those utterly fu***ng dreadful HAUNTED HOUSE Wayan debacles, but imagine if all the gags worked. Imagine every actor being absolutely believably who they are. That “Pure Comedy Gold… Brilliant!” quote… I can’t really argue with it. I’ve seen the film 4 times now – and a week ago my wife and Movie Night Companion Diana through a GHOST TEAM ONE surprise drinking themed screening for 14 friends – and by the end – we were all in Geisha robes and trashed and cackling like the inebriated goofs we were! This is rated R, for raunchy and ridiculous! After the film came to a close, a cry for GHOST TEAM TWO was chanted! If you have friends that love laughing and screaming together – this film will deliver. But go into it assuming I’m full of s**t. It’ll play better that way! Seriously, this film is a GEM of a Movie Night flick! Their sober roommate is just amazing!

Tons of great titles - this wraps up 2013 - and there's some really great titles!!!

As Social Sponsorship Grows, Influencers Are Looking to Cash In

Love this data on the branded entertainment business we've been working in since 2006.

Can't tell which is more surprising... that people are still suspect of WebStars ability to influence OR that advertisers are surprised these influencers want to get paid money for their endorsements.

http://www.adweek.com/news/technology/social-sponsorship-grows-influencers-are-looking-cash-154530

Celebrity endorsements have long been the domain of TV and magazine ads. But now, marketers have discovered that stars and other so-called influencers can help move product just as well through their social media channels.
