Filmmaker Nicholas Gyeney (@MirrorImages) speaks about his recent Film on #TheSashaMarinaShow!

Nicholas is a Director & Screenwriter from Seattle, Washington to Hungarian parents on July 15th, 1986. Since childhood, Nicholas avidly immersed himself in the world of motion pictures with the indelible influence of his father, Örs Gyeney. Every weekend, Örs would sit down with Nicholas to show him new films like Star Wars, The Terminator series, and the adventures of James Bond. Sadly, the tradition ended in 1998 when Nicholas’ father died tragically. Fueled by his loss, Nicholas started diving deeper into movies than ever before and soon discovered his calling as a filmmaker.
Throughout high school, Nicholas completed numerous short films, with most continuing on to win best picture and best director awards from his school’s film department. At the age of 17, Nicholas wrote and directed his first feature-length student film, which he submitted to the University of Southern California in hopes of being accepted into their prestigious film program. To his surprise and elation, he was not only accepted but granted a full-ride scholarship.
At age 20, while continuing his studies at the USC Film School, Nicholas began work on his first independent film, an ultra-low budget schlock thriller called “The Falling.” The film premiered in Seattle on December 21, 2006 to a crowd of 600 people who gathered to witness the local filmmaker’s artistic endeavor. Shortly after, the film found distribution and began paving the road for Nicholas to establish relationships with many of the industry’s most successful professionals.
In 2008, with USC and his first feature behind him, and after three years developing and sharpening his abilities as a filmmaker, Nicholas wrote, produced, and directed his 2nd feature and first theatrically released film, “The Penitent Man,” which has been highly acclaimed for its unique structure and style. “The Penitent Man” stars Lance Henriksen (Aliens, The Terminator, Millennium), and Andrew Keegan (10 Things I Hate About You), and is available on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and other digital platforms.
Nicholas directed his third feature, a dark comedy called, “Matt’s Chance” starring Edward Furlong, Lee Majors, Margot Kidder, and Gary Busey. After a successful film festival tour that garnered critical acclaim and several awards for best picture, acting, and original score, “Matt’s Chance” is now on its way to worldwide release.
As Nicholas prepares his next directorial effort in the coming months, he is quickly establishing himself as one of the top filmmakers in the Northwest.


Official Synopsis: A darkly comedic tale of love, revenge, and the fickle nature of human morality.
Enter Matt, a down-on-his-luck loser who on his birthday night discovers his fiancée, Jessica, in bed with another man. As Matt learns the true depth of Jessica’s betrayal, he begins a downward spiral revenge quest that pits him face to face with a wide array of characters including an eccentric pawn shop owner (Gary Busey), an aging stripper (Margot Kidder),and a barber with an agenda (Lee Majors).


MATT'S CHANCE stars Edward Furlong (Terminator, American History X), Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon), Margot Kidder (Superman), and the legendary Lee Majors (The Fall Guy)!

Filmmaker Chassidy Jade speaks about her Film @_BrownBallerina on #TheSashaMarinaShow!

The BROWN BALLERINA MOVEMENT is the brainchild of Chassidy Jade, CEO and founder of Crown Me Royal Labs. It's foundation - a short film entitled BROWN BALLERINA is the dynamic movie and epicenter of Jade's creative vision.

The filmmaker's mission is to defy stereotypes one plié at a time! Touching on issues of race, politics and social class BROWN BALLERINA explores the full spectrum of ballet, giving viewers a glimpse into a world that before now was inaccessible.

The filmmaker believes that viewers will be inspired by the story's universal messages of self-love and power found in defining one's personal path. More than a movie, BROWN BALLERINA is a movement, with a fast growing national fan base.

The film's lead, Maryann Payne brings BROWN BALLERINA to life. With over a decade
of experience, the dancer and actress received her primary training at Lulu Ballet in Los
Angeles as well as Boynton Beach's Southern Dance Theatre. Payne went on to attend
Dreyfoos School of the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach as well as the New World School of the Arts in Miami Beach. Years of dedication translated into irrefutable skill, earning the ballerina a scholarship to the Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive Program. Payne has also trained at the iconic Dance Theatre of Harlem and has been a featured dancer for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

By the age of 3, BROWN BALLERINA'S lead choreographer, Shanna Woods was already in love with dance. She has trained with the Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive Program and danced with Chicago's Deeply Rooted Dance Theatre. Currently a principle dancer at Cleo Park Dance Theatre in Denver, Woods credits dance with allowing her to see the world. She has performed in New York, New Zealand and countless places in between.

Filmmaker, Chassidy Jade believes that in addition to inspiring audiences to remain both physically and mentally fit, the BROWN BALLERINA MOVEMENT will encourage its followers to embrace their authentic selves. To quote Jade, "We're taught to relate, not to think for ourselves so that it's easy to find comfort in boxes that fit a specific character. Once you step outside that character, you become human."

Interview with Pataphysician Tad Baker on #TheSashaMarinaShow!

"With a comfortable middle-class upbringing, I drifted between colleges, squandering opportunities and burning bridges, unable to find a sense of purpose. I landed in Sonoma County, California, hunkered low in a rusted trailer on a Christmas tree farm. One day I met an old Greek living up the road; rumor had it he was a well-traveled genius, passionate and unpredictable. In the irreverent Demetrius Toteras, I found a kindred spirit, and demanding mentor. Toteras introduced me to Classical Thought and his specialty, the philosophy and theater of the Absurd. My apprenticeship began slowly; I struggled, tiring easily, his words pointed and troubling. Yet despite learning I was a worthless nincompoop, I persisted, hooked on my discoveries.
For seven years, I focused almost entirely on my studies, neglecting family and finances. In 1988, Toteras discharged me to San Francisco, where I formed The Institute of Absurdity, a collection of losers, dilettantes, slackers and yuppies unafraid to revel in the great modern taboos: Bigotry, Sexism, Homophobia, and Arrogance. The audience-catharsis events we grew famous for demanded a dexterous whip-cracker to keep order. I became Uncle Tad Baker, Director and Master of Ceremonies for The Institute, which quickly morphed in The School of Absurdity.

A succession of plays shocked the city: Students Advocating Death, ‘Low-cost capital punishment’; San Francisco Farting Contest, ‘Is one of Man’s most offensive acts art?’; Pindaro’s Belly Pageant, ‘The beauty of the Grotesque’; Uncle Tad Baker’s Loon Show, ‘Those tomatoes are frozen!’; and Uncle Tad Baker's Men's Club, ‘poets and madmen triumph over psychology and feminism!'
Success spoiled all of us and I soon left San Francisco for Brasil, my wife’s home, where we raised our young boys until returning to the States in 1997. I became paralyzed while motorcycle racing in 1999; beset with unimaginable difficulties, I have regained my strength and have pressed on to complete my movie, 'Uncle Tad Baker's Loon Show: The Movie' and am in negotiations to return the Loon Show to the stage in Fall, 2014. I recently launched the long-awaited archive site, SchoolofAbsurdity.com, dedicated to and in honor of my mentor, Demetrius Toteras."

Interview with Steve Roitstein, founder of Cuban Funk Band PALO (@GoPalo) on #TheSashaMarinaShow!

PALO! began in 2003 when Steve Roitstein invited his fellow musicians to join him in an improvised musical experiment combining Cuban music with funk beats. The band immediately became a featured act in Miami’s premiere live music venues, concerts, festivals and events. The winner of Miami New Times’ BEST LATIN BAND 2014, PALO! has performed for packed houses in Boston, Chicago, and New York.

PALO! performs their own brand of music they call “Afro-Cuban Funk”. Just think “jazzed-up salsa”, or better yet, listen to some of their music. The group’s unique, danceable sound blends the allure of Cuban music with funky beats and jazzy improvisation.

PALO!’s catchy original songs feature the sultry vocals of Latin Grammy-nominated Leslie Cartaya and the impromptu virtuosity of legendary saxophonist Ed Calle. The scorching percussion and vocals of Philbert Armenteros and Raymer Olalde punctuate their performances with Cuban fire. Producer/pianist Steve Roitstein (Celia Cruz, Willy Chirino) fuses these elements with a foundation of edgy, unforgettable rhythms.

The New York Post proclaims “Afro-Cuban Funk is Cuban music for the new generation. And the leader of the sound is the Miami based band PALO.”
