“Afterglow (A Cappella) feat Armand Hutton” Nominated by HMMA

Featured

Diana “Dilee’s” first released single “Afterglow (A Cappella) feat Armand Hutton” off the album “With Love” was officially nominated by Hollywood Music in Media Awards in Dance genre for the month of September 2017.

PRlog.com:  The Hollywood Music In Media Awards™ (HMMA) recognizes and honors the music of visual mediums (film, TV, movie trailers, video games, commercials, etc.), the talented individuals responsible for creating, producing and placing it and the music of artists, both mainstream and independent, from around the globe. HMMA is also the first music awards event to recognize and honor excellence in music supervision. Iconic artists are presented with Outstanding Career Achievement honors for their accomplishments and longevity in the entertainment field.

Diana “Dilee” Maher is a creative and inspiring storyteller that leads with positivity through her songs and message. Her music continues to bring society together in a vision without hate or jealousy. She is a cross-media artist who began her musical career in the San Diego/Los Angeles, California area. Her mixed lineage (50% broadly Southern European, 50% Southeast Asian including Native American ancestry) fostered a strong desire to bring cultures together in an atmosphere of positivity and spirituality.

Dilee dedicates all of her music “to the Divine.” “Devotion to our Creator, to me, means embracing and giving the magic of kindness to every living thing as a particle of the all,” says Dilee, “and I believe each one of us is inter-connected, which is why my new promotional T-shirts and sweatshirts are emblazoned with ‘The love in you is the same in me’.”

About Dilee:

Dilee’s resume, which includes a Spoken Word album and several single releases garnered her voting member status in NARAS (Grammys®). These releases coupled with two earlier unreleased musical productions with both Ike Turner and Ike Turner Jr. were the beginning of her musical career.

Being a part of the voting process and being a positive role model are responsibilities Dilee takes seriously. She believes in goodness, equality, love, and the belief that we as human beings should strive to touch each other’s lives in a positive way. Her music is one way of bringing the world’s essence together, transcending all cultural and national borders in order to celebrate life.

‘Mosaic’ and ‘Gotham’s’ Michael Cerveris on Theater Roots, Big Break – Variety – Sharing Variety Magazine


Michael Cerveris’ television resume reads like a wishlist of projects, starting with his earliest days in the industry, when he appeared on the acclaimed 1986 series “Fame” with Debbie Allen to guest starring stints on “21 Jump Street” (in 1990), “Quantum Leap” (in 1991) and the original “CSI” (2001). The past decade has seen him expand into creating cult favorite characters on dramas including “Fringe,” “Treme” and “The Good Wife,” but this past year may prove to have been his busiest. In addition to trying his hand at comedy on Amazon’s version of “The Tick,” Cerveris is also in Fox’s superhero origin story “Gotham” and Steven Soderbergh’s interactive limited series “Mosaic.”

Cerveris was first mentioned in Variety on Dec. 4, 1985, when he was listed as part of the cast for Jud Taylor’s CBS miniseries “Doubletake.”

Although “Doubletake” was the first project that put you on Variety‘s radar, it was not your first on-screen credit.

I had trained as a theater actor at Yale and imagined my career was going to head primarily in that direction, but then I decided I also wanted to eat and pay rent, and so I did background on all of the soaps that filmed in New York. That was kind of my on-camera training because we didn’t really have any on-camera training at Yale, so that was a great place for me in understanding what marks were and how you hit them.

Being that “Doubletake” was a bigger role than you were used to doing, did you feel extra pressure going into that audition?

The stakes of each audition seemed to be the last audition you would ever have. You also were trying to leave a good impression on the casting director so word would get back to your agents, who you were also still fresh with and wanted to make a good impression on. Even if you didn’t get it, you wanted good reports to go back. So I remember being really nervous about it, and I just wanted to leave no choice but for them to give me the role, all the while feeling like, “Of course I’m not going to get this role because I never have.” I went in with a combination optimistic and fatalistic mind.

Whose careers did you want to emulate at the time?

I grew up admiring Robert Duvall and Ed Harris, and in high school I went on a theater trip to London and saw an actor named Michael Bryant in a production of Ibsen’s “Brand” and was just blown away. I would say my earliest stage mentors or the people I revered were the people like him and Len Cariou, who I saw in “Sweeney Todd.”

How did you and Jud work together on “Doubletake?”

He treated me like I deserved to be there and like a colleague and a professional, and that was a really valuable thing as a very young actor — to have the feeling that your insights and thoughts were valid and be made to feel like you belonged there. That means so much when you’re at an early point in your career. Until people take a chance on you and have faith in you, it’s very hard to have faith in yourself.

Credit goes to Shannon Rose HollyWood for getting this published. The article quotes Dilee’s husband Jeffrey and Dilee says “Jeffrey who’s believed in me more than I have believed in myself and it quotes Bill Hare top, front and center thank you ever so much! You are a joy to work with! Heartfelt quote from Armand Hutton my soul brother from another mother thank you I’m so very blessed to have you and Bill on my team with many more songs to come! So appreciate the quote from Joanne Lazzaro on her flutes aiding in her own interpretation of my song “Twist Like a Dragon” co-written by Nel Gerome (he and I wrote all the album songs). Thank you Kori L Carothers for your quote as well you’re such a wonderful person and that means the most to me that everyone I worked with on this album is a good human being first and foremost. Millions have talent but without heart it is meaningless.” The article shines light on the two charities Dilee serves on the Board for and helps out with regularly:  She’s on the Board of Directors for www.drivehope.org and on Advisory Board for www.safepassagelives.org.

Day of the Soldado’ to Be First U.S. Indie in Saudi Arabia – Variety


Lionsgate’s “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” is set to become the first U.S. indie title released in Saudi Arabia following the recent removal of the country’s religion-related ban on cinemas after 35 years.

The Mexico-set drug-trafficking thriller, a sequel to 2015’s “Sicario,” will bow on AMC screens in the Saudi capital of Riyadh next Thursday, one day before its scheduled U.S. release. Starring Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin, it is being distributed locally by Middle Eastern company Italia Film.

Italia Film previously handled the groundbreaking April 18 release in Saudi Arabia of Marvel’s “Black Panther” which marked the first commercial screening of a film in the kingdom since movie theaters were banned in the early 1980s because of adoption of ultraconservative religious standards. Lifting the ban is part of a drive by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to transform Saudi society and diversify its oil-driven economy.

Italia Film said in a statement that the Saudi release of the ultra-violent “Soldado” was “another great victory for the film industry and for film fans in Saudi Arabia.” The company said it marked a “great achievement” for the independent film industry since the Saudi market “was initially perceived to be only embracing the big [U.S] studio productions.”

“Soldado” will be the first release to be rated R-18 in Saudi Arabia, because of the film’s “subject and violence,” Italia Film’s Carlo Vincenti said in an email.

As for censorship cuts, which are customary in the Arab world because of cultural constraints, those made by Saudi censors on “Soldado” were “very minor,” said Vincenti, adding that “just a few instances of cursing” were “muted.”

“Soldado,” in which the drug wars worsen from the original “Sicario,” has been described as “tense, tough, and shockingly ruthless at times” by Variety critic Peter Debruge and is rated R by the MPAA in the U.S., where it will be released by Sony.

Big World Takes U.S. Rights on Egypt’s ‘In the Last Days of the City’ – Variety – Sharing Variety Magazine


Big World Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to Egyptian director Tamer El Said’s “In the Last Days of the City,” a multilayered meditation on contemporary Cairo that launched from the Berlin Film Festival but has effectively been banned in Egypt.

The deal was inked in Paris by Brooklyn-based Big World’s Jonathan Howell and Pierre Menahem, co-founder of French production and sales company Still Moving.

Shot in the run-up to Egypt’s 2011 revolution and completed last year, “In the Last Days of the City” is about a film director played by Khalid Abdalla (“The Kite Runner,” “The Square) who is trying to capture the zeitgeist of Cairo while the city, and the world, change around him. It blends fiction and documentary-like footage sent to the film’s protagonist by friends from Berlin, Baghdad and Beirut, blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction.

Variety critic Jay Weissberg called it “a melancholic love-hate poem to Cairo and the role of filmmakers in any city in pain.”

“In the Last Days of the City,” which is El Said’s first feature, won the Berlinale Forum’s Caligari Award and scored several other awards on the international fest circuit. The film, which looks at the Cairo before and after the revolution, has been blocked by censors in Egypt, where it was meant to have its Middle Eastern premiere at the 2016 Cairo Film Festival. When the fest pulled it, hundreds of Egyptian and Arab filmmakers signed a petition asking Egypt’s culture ministry to allow a local release. But that has not happened.

Big World plans to launch “In the Last Days of the City” in the U.S. with an April 27 screening at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, with El Said on hand to present his film.

Big World Pictures is a nonprofit distribution outfit whose previous releases include Tsai Ming-liang’s “Rebels of the Neon God” and Eric Rohmer classics “A Summer’s Tale” and “A Tale of Winter.” Two of its releases from Eastern Europe, Radu Jude’s “Aferim!” and Maya Vitkova’s “Viktoria,” featured on prominent critics’ lists of top 10 films of 2016.

Still Moving, which is headed by Menahem and Juliette Lepoutre, has other Arabic titles on its slate, including  Ala Eddine Slim’s “The Last of Us,” which was Tunisia’s submission for this year’s foreign-language Oscar.
