The virtuoso talent of MARINA ARSENIJEVIC was on full display during the TAKE THE LEAD Women’s Power Up Concert at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix celebrating Woman's Equality Day on August 25th, 2022. Marina wowed the crowd receiving three standing ovations with her virtuosity, passion, program versatility and her witty commentary. Marina began the concert with her favorite Chopin "Fantaisie-Impromptu", followed by her take on Mozart mixed with "Peter Piper" and "Music Box Dancer". She then introduced two of her own compositions, "Danube Rising" and "Fire & Soul" which were inspired by her heritage growing up in Serbia and the Balkans. She continued with her classical/pop rock version of the song "My Beauty" using her own voice as a second instrument. She concluded the program with a stirring performance of Chopin's "Revolutionary Etude" as an introduction to "America the Beautiful" that drew the audience to their feet in thunderous applause and prolonged cheers. Marina's performance will be rebroadcast beginning on September 1st, on her YouTube channel.
Gloria Feldt, Co-Founder & President of TAKE THE LEAD after the concert commented: "Our Power Up concert with Marina as the central performer was the perfect kickoff for the Power Up Celebrate 8 Conference on Women’s Equality Day, August 25th. And did she ever wow the audience with her passion and brilliant performance. Everyone is buzzing about Marina. She is also incredibly generous in sharing her talent for the cause of gender equality and parity in power, pay, and leadership positions. On a personal note, Marina’s music was much beloved by my husband who passed away recently. So she touched me to the core with her performance on behalf of Take The Lead".
Dr. Nancy O’Reilly, Founder and President of Women Connect4Good, Inc., and TAKE THE LEAD Board Member wrote: "Marina Arsenijevic’s performance during Take The Lead Women’s Power Up Concert at the Arizona Biltmore was fantastic. She shared the gifts of her talent and beautiful music with us all, and the standing ovations she received were well deserved. Marina’s performance also illustrated her commitment to and support of women’s leadership – evidenced by the fact that she is donating a portion of the profits of her latest CD, "TESLA RHAPSODY", to Take The Lead, helping them advance their mission to prepare, develop, inspire and propel women across all industries and sectors to reach parity in leadership by 2025. Marina’s donation provides us all with a glimpse into her big heart and gentle, caring soul. She is a true changemaker, and her support is going to help us help other women move forward."

Customer Service has become a Defense Department for a BROKEN Selling SystemEHCOnomics is the Science of Selling, Not the Art of CONvincing”TORONTO, CANADA, September 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- We are possibly entering the most widespread competitive and hostile market in history. Businesses need to be hybrid to be successful.— Edward Henry
How can your sales team manage their sales activity effectively in this climate of costly time waste?
Sales processes are flawed when the entire discovery framework is designed to barely break below the surface of the customer's goals and expectations.
Change your focus from finding things in common with your customer to identifying a common direction.
Salespeople are constantly breaking promises regardless of their best intentions to want to give the best honest customer experience. Remember, everything that we tell a customer is a promise.
Companies are caught up in the investment trap of technology and sales training trying to establish enough efficiency to make things happen when they are supposed to. The goal is for our sales message to feel more like a service, rather than the less than good feeling we have when we know that our message does not measure with our promises to our customers.
We create so much sales waste trying to find sales efficiency. Extremely expensive sales waste!
What about this thought…
What if we could reduce that sales waste, and by doing so we establish the level of sales efficiency we are looking for?
Is it possible that our sales cycles could become shorter, our sales time increased, and additional revenue with no additional acquisition cost? Most importantly our customers will experience something so rare in business -- things happening when promised.
Can proposals be sent when promised, if we can't get the first promise right without an excuse?
Customer loyalty is an endangered species, this was the very reason why we created EHCOnomics!
This is the very experience that we are delivering for our clients. Accountability, honesty, and things happening when they are supposed to. When they don’t, we don't make any excuses. Every EHCOnomics customer will tell you the same.
We promise you because as our client, everything we say to you should be expected as a promise
What is EHCOnomics? Is it better than our competitors’ sales training, or is it a system?
IT IS BOTH
We wanted to develop a selling system that provides a better way of selling and solves the CRM sales waste problem that is making people crazy. We wanted to do this without asking you to change your existing CRM. WE DID THIS by developing a system that reduces the effects of human behavior, not controlling behavior. We study sales adoption day and night. Our clients will tell you the same.
The best way to be successful with economics is to have EHCOnomics.

Global Marine Exploration Wins Judgement Against France to be in Court April 2023TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, US, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- After the 11th Circuit Court's decision that Global Marine Exploration (GME) does have a right to sue the Republic of France in regards to the shipwrecks GME has discovered off Cape Canaveral, the case is scheduled for trial in Federal Court, Tallahassee, FL in April 2023. GME will be represented by Lead Attorney, Steve Turner of Rayboun Winegardner law firm.
The four claims against France are:
1. And in personam salvage lien.
2. Quasi contract/unjust enrichment.
3. Misappropriation of GME’S trade secret information.
4. Interference with GME’s rights and relations.
From early 2014 through 2016, GME received fourteen contracts from the State of Florida to explore and hopefully discover historical shipwrecks off Cape Canaveral space launch center. At considerable risk and financial costs, GME succeeded in finding five shipwrecks, four of which possibly match specific wrecks of great value. GME meticulously followed established reporting protocols, as outlined in the Florida contracts, at which point the State of Florida informed GME that the State needed to look into how to proceed, as this was the first time in 30 years that new historical wreck finds have been registered through the Florida State contract system. Then the State inexplicably stopped communicating with GME.
In Mid 2016 unbeknown to GME, Florida’s State Archaeologists along with Florida’s Secretary of State collaborated and negotiated with France behind GME's back, to push GME out of the picture and instead use other companies and partied to recover the five shipwrecks GME had discovered. One of the shipwrecks could possibly be the French ship La Trinite which sunk during a 1565 hurricane. The collusion between France and Florida to push GME aside, resulted in an agreement between France and Florida to salvage the 5 wrecks without any compensation to GME. Inventing spurious and unfounded reasons, and without due process, Florida arbitrarily cancelled GME’s contracts.
Although the financial and archeological value listed in historical records, has been estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars, the financial benefit to France and the State of Florida would be in the Billions of Dollars.
Based on GME's contract with Florida, GME who spent years of hard and physically risky work, and millions of dollars to successfully discover these shipwrecks, is entitled to sixty percent of the value.
GME continues to move forward while looking into potential litigation finance.

"Love Life. Love God. Love each other. That’s all there is.”— Joe RubinsteinI cannot imagine a world without Joe, but thankfully his life, legacy, and lessons will live on through the example he set for us all. Joe gave us an inspirational map on how to deal with adversity.”CASTLE ROCK, CO, UNITED STATES, July 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Holocaust survivor Joe Rubinstein passed away peacefully in Loveland, Colorado, on July 18, 2022. Joe was the believed to be the oldest known Holocaust survivor in Colorado.— Author Nancy Sprowell Geise
Icek Jakub Rubinsztejn ”Joe Rubinstein” was born on September 16, 1920 in Radom, Poland. After Germany invaded Poland, Joe and his family were sent to the Radom Ghetto in 1941.
Two weeks later, Joe was taken from the ghetto and sent to several concentration camps. Joe never saw his family again. His widowed mother, Reska, his older brother, Dawid, Joe’s identical twin, Chaim, his younger brother, Abram, and younger sister, Laja, were all believed murdered at the Treblinka Death camp following the “liquidation” of the Radom Ghetto in 1942.
“It is my deepest prayer,” said Nancy Sprowell Geise, author of the award-winning book about his life, Auschwitz #34207 - The Joe Rubinstein Story, “that at this moment Joe is in the loving embrace of his beloved family. Although he survived decades without them, they never were far from his thoughts and heart. Even at the age of 101, Joe could not speak of them without weeping.”
Throughout his life, Joe defied the odds. He went on, not only to survive several of the most notorious Nazi concentration camps, including over two years at Auschwitz/Birkenau, but to live a long, productive, and joy-filled life. Joe and his bride, Irene, moved to the United States in 1949. Joe would become one of New York City’s leading shoe designers, working for such iconic companies as Korkease Shoes, Herbert Levine Shoes, Nina Shoes, Gelbrow Shoes, and later in California for Sbicca of California and Cherokee of California.
Joe’s philosophy of living so long: “Eat right, exercise every day and help each other. That’s what I did.”
Geise said, “For nearly 70 years Joe never told anyone about his story because he did not think anything good could come of it. After the book about his life was published, Joe was deeply touched by the many letters and feedback he got from people around the world telling him that if he found a way to live a joy-filled life after losing all he did, then they knew they could find a way to face their troubles."
Geise is grateful that Joe finally decided to tell his story so that his family of origin will never be forgotten. "He became a voice for many who perished in the Holocaust and did not live to share their stories."
“He was an inspiration to so many,” Geise said. “He will continue to be an inspiration for future generations about not giving in to despair and not turning to darkness. Instead, Joe saw the best in people. He lived into the idea of how we each have a choice in how we respond to adversity. Joe chose joy.”
Joe is survived by his wife, Irene, of 74 years, a son, daughter-in-law, three grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
On his 100th birthday, the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, declared the day “Joe Rubinstein Day."
Geise said, "Joe told me in one of the last conversations I had with him, that every day he thanks God that he is alive, but that he is ready when God calls him home. Joe loved to remind people that life is precious and that we should never give up on it. I am grateful that he never did."

Tesla Science Foundation awarded pianist and composer Marina Arsenijevic its highest honor the "Tesla Gold Spirit Award" on July 9th, 2022 in Philadelphia, USA.The virtuoso talent of Marina Arsenijevic through her composition TESLA RHAPSODY has added a new dimension in honoring Nikola Tesla to classical music lovers in every corner of the globe”NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The TESLA SCIENCE FOUNDATION has awarded composer and pianist Marina Arsenijevic its highest honor, the TESLA GOLD SPIRIT AWARD on July 9th, 2022 in Philadelphia, PA USA. The ceremony took place on the day of the 166th anniversary of Nikola Tesla's birth. Tesla Science Foundation president Nikola Lonchar said "the virtuoso talent of Marina Arsenijevic through her composition TESLA RHAPSODY has added a new dimension in honoring Nikola Tesla to classical music lovers in every corner of the globe. She was the clear choice for receiving this award".— Tesla Science Foundation
ABOUT TESLA RHAPSODY: Marina’s TESLA RHAPSODY was released on April 15th worldwide exclusively through Apple and Amazon. It is the first major musical composition honoring the great Nikola Tesla. Since its release, it has achieved critical acclaim as a “tour de force” on classical radio stations in the United States, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Europe, and South Africa. It is composed for solo piano and symphony orchestra combining elements of classical music, folklore, jazz and blues. It is a multilayered rhapsodic piano structure with distinguished melodies interwoven from Tesla’s heritage. The opening is inspired by Byzantine chants and church bells reflecting the sounds of Tesla’s childhood. This is augmented with elements of folklore from Tesla’s homeland. Since Tesla lived most of his adult life in New York City, TESLA RHAPSODY uses elements of jazz and blues with bitonal and bimodal episodes to reflect his busy and highly productive New York life. The structure of the composition is inspired by Gershwin’s "Rhapsody in Blue". The piano texture is distinguished by “hidden” melodies in inner parts, dense polyphony, broken chords in open positions, and frequent pedals which contribute toward the static or ambivalent feel of the harmony. TESLA RHAPSODY concludes in a heroic crescendo reflecting the impact of the genius of Tesla on the world.

TROM Computers Development Suspended while Project Health Control (PHC) Switches to Neo4j Database Technology
We are scheduling an operational gap of six months for replenishment of exhausted money reserves and will return with a graph data model in the form of Neo4j.Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”— Mark Twain
SOUTHMINSTER, ESSEX, UNITED KINGDOM, June 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- After a sustained three-year attempt at establishing the basis of an expansive network of community centres, TROM Computers is calling a halt to further development for the time being. The initiative started with the establishment of TROM Computers CIC at the beginning of the pandemic in 2019.
The primary reason for pausing is slow adoption by private benefactors and lack of support from UK Government's Department of Employment and Labour. The project's commercial model is based on income that comes entirely from donations, and a main component is a target projection of government funding in line with current unemployment benefit payments. The government essentially pays for people to work with TROM Computers while job searching.
As a fundamental principle of the project, the TROM Computers staff are paid in a reward-for-effort model where value generated by the project is distributed among people involved, in direct proportion to their individual contributions. Each person records their contribution as 'time chunks' in a web-accessible database where each 'chunk' consists of date, duration and narrative of what is done. There is no distinction between grades of staff, and all value generated is distributed, so there is no mechanism in the share scheme for any one individual in the project to become wealthy from the project, but opportunity in the project for many staff to gain significantly more than they would on a minimum wage assignment or from government handout.
"This method of sharing has proven a very difficult concept to understand because it is far from what is 'normal' in commercial structures," says Nishanth Shiraj, web applications specialist, "It is only since I experienced a share out myself that I came to fully understand the concept. You work on the project because you want to, regardless of money reward, and what you get paid varies according to what value is produced overall. We all do this anyway in family situations, so the TROM Computers payment method is simply the same but applied to the commercial settings in social projects."
A major vision of the TROM Computers project is the harnessing of massive amounts of human capacity built into the many people on low incomes or unemployed. Within the project's organisation structure, there will be opportunity for participants to apply efforts to the resolution of local and national concerns like homelessness, isolation, antisocial behaviour and poverty. Concerns for which it is abundantly evident that Politicians are unable to solve, except for when additional effort is expended to harness the power of the Community Concerns initiative that is a core element of the TROM Computers project.
A priority target for TROM Computers when it re-emerges with full funding, is to implement the Community Concerns initiative by infiltration of local County Councils and Parish Councils and disrupting their bureaucratic operations. Motivation to join Local Councils is in many cases not by genuine interest in resolving community problems, but by self interest and usually related to personal financial gain. As recorded in TROM Computers history when acquisition of public building for use as local premises was filibustered out of the Burnham Town Council agenda in 2020.
When the TROM Computers project is underway, government policy that sustains a condition of below-poverty-line existence for recipients of social benefits, will be challenged. As an alternative to current policy, benefits recipients will be offered the opportunity to work on the TROM Computers Community Concerns project, utilising their input and at the same time providing them with incentive for self improvement.
"The main lesson we can learn from our largely unsuccessful start-up, is to accept that the money game is played always for personal gain and hardly ever for community development,' says David Winter, TROM Computers founder, "No politician or local councillor in the current social system is ever going to promote community development unless it involves some kind of personal advantage."
During the down time of TROM Computers operations, trials will be conducted on a small scale experiment using donations that individuals make in any case for parties considered of worth in community development. An example of these is the Richie Allen radio show that provides a platform for guests whose opinions are often considered unpopular or offensive, but valid nevertheless on the principle that all opinions should be heard and challenged. Richie Allen is a strong proponent of free speech, and plans are in preparation for a 'share out experiment' involving his regular donors who will be offered the option to donate via TROM Computers as a showcase of how the method works as a precursor to pressure on government to support the TROM Computers project.
For the global scale of operation envisaged for the TROM Computers project, graphing database technology is the way forward. Graphing technology of choice for the emerging project's data model is Neo4j - https://neo4j.com

PlayTreks named a Key-Player in the Global Music NFT market
PlayTreks (TREKS:TREKS)We believe that the HTF report shows we are on the right strategic path to serve our clients and the industry.””HASSELT, BE-VLI, BELGIUM, December 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- PlayTreks, the All-In-One platform for the music industry, was named a key player in the Global Music NFT market report researched by HTF Market Intelligence— Anjo De Heus
The majority of key players are focussing on securing a leading market in the music industry, as PlayTreks is doing with its NFT marketplace, The PlayGrounds. Other key players include OpenSea, Nifty Gateway, and Rarible among a few others.
PlayTreks, an innovative company applying artificial intelligence and blockchain technology to make artists and record labels meet the growing demand for transparency and new ways of monetizing music, today announced that it has been named a key player in the Global Music NFT market by HTF Market Intelligence.
PlayTreks NFT PlayGrounds marketplace was recognized because of its readiness, global coverage, and completeness, and was researched based on primary and secondary research, white paper, publications, website, world bank statistics, and HTF market intelligence.
The music industry has been inextricably linked to technology since the discovery of sound recording in 1877. Technological innovations have influenced how music is made, played, saved, distributed, and enjoyed. This is from the first discs to streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music from the birth of record changing to the rise of modern electronic sound.
The rise of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, is a developing trend in the music industry. NFT transactions enable audiences to bid on one-of-a-kind content from their favorite artists in auctions. These tokens, as well as the transactions that entail them, currently empower the artists who sell them. Only time will tell if NFTs are here to stay, as they are brand-new breakthroughs. An NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is a one-of-a-kind digital asset held on the blockchain.
For record labels, publishers, and their lawyers, licensing and transferring ownership of music is now a pretty complex process, and manually clearing samples for usage or transferring rights can even postpone the release of the music. However, with efficient and secure document transfer, NFT makes licensing and transferring music as simple and quick as shopping online.
“We are honored to be recognized by HTF Market Intelligence as a key player in the global music NFT market,” said Anjo De Heus, CEO of PlayTreks. We’re continuing to build our comprehensive platform for music management and execution to serve as the engine that drives commerce for our clients. Music Data is essential to the blockchain platform for NFTs, and that's what sets us apart. We believe that the HTF report shows we are on the right strategic path to serve our clients and the industry.”
This is the first time that PlayTreks has been named a key player in the global music NFT market as they only went live with the All-In-One platform in April of 2021 and the market for music NFT's is relatively new.
The power of the PlayTreks platform is its completeness with services such as music distribution to traditional streaming platforms and blockchain-based NFT marketplaces, radio airplay monitoring, music rights copyright control, and driven by lots of data so artists always have a 360-degree view on music performance.

Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma, scores victory as Buffalo Soldier Descendants Agree to Forge Alliance with Apache Tribe
Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is the most important film of our era - Faizon LoveMinnesota! The Modern Day Selma is the most important film of our era.”CENTURY CITY, CA, USA, December 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Award Winning Film, Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma, scores another victory as Buffalo Soldier Descendants Agree to Forge Alliance withChihene Nde Apache Tribe in New Mexico.— Faizon Love
Descendants of the Buffalo Soldiers were on hand to meet with Knifewing Segura, representative of the ChiheneApache Tribe at an afterparty for the Culver City Film Festival held at the Marriott Hotel in Marina Del Rey. They all came to see, Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma a film now in contention for an Academy Award® in the Documentary Category of the Academy.
The film’s content led to the conversation that sparked an historical reconciliation of men that for generations were sworn enemies that instantly became fast friends. Knifewing agreed to forge an economic alliance with the men by building a replica of South Central Neighborhoods on his Gallup New Mexico property to be used in creating content meant for the Urban Markets.
“So much rich content comes from America’s Inner Cities and South Central Los Angeles has been a central theme in hundreds of stories that need to be told,” said Award Winning Producer and former Mayor of Compton, Omar Bradley. “The sets in New Mexico will give us a controlled safe environment to reenact scenes that delve into these important stories.”
“For many years the Buffalo Soldiers were used to eradicate our people,” said Knifewing “Now it is time for us to turn all of our swords into ploughshares to plant the next crop of meaningful entertainment. We are happy about our participation in creating Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma that will pave the way.”
Buffalo Soldier Descendants and Native Americans now have forged an economic alliance to bring quality content to life. “New Mexico offers production incentives that can be used in tandem with other economic incentives that make film production more affordable,” said Minnesota Director, Michael Douglas Carlin, “When you look at the financial structures it just makes sense to film urban content in New Mexico.”
Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma was filmed in the aftermath of the George Floyd Murder and has received 13 film festival awards. “There was huge support from Apache descendants in completing the film so it only makes sense that it is used as a catalyst to create these economic ties,” said Executive Producer, Michael Meyer, “We cooperated on this film and see a strong content driven path to keep the team together and expand it by creating a mini South Central on or near tribal lands.”
Recently, Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma won the audience choice best documentary at the Culver City Film Festival and now boasts 14 film festival awards. The film competed among 350 films that screened from December 4th - 11th at the Cinemark 18 in Culver City, home of Sony Pictures, Culver City Studios, Apple Studio and many other entertainment companies.
With the establishment of Apple Studios in Culver City it is only fitting that a documentary utilizing Apple technology should be selected to appear in the Culver City Film Festival. Andy Libby commented, "Carlin's skillful use of iPhone technology to capture the untold stories of police brutality from the mouths of loved ones in Minnesota gives his film a fresh immediacy without sensationalism or sentimentality. He resists the temptation to insert himself into the narrative and dutifully stands his post imbedded among the peaceful protestors and those who would oppose or incite them."
Audience Members commented overwhelmingly that Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is an immersive film. Said Libby in response, "The success of Michael Carlin's film is that he allows the narrative to tell itself without a droning narration or insertion of a hidden agenda. It is pure documentary without judgement or manipulation. Audiences feel their feet on the ground with the protestors on their sometimes perilous pilgrimage."
"Current technology puts the power of filmmaking into the hands of each and every citizen," said former Mayor of Compton and producer of Minnesota, Omar Bradley, "this is a new era of filmmaking and we are thrilled to be on the cutting edge allowing the story to tell itself."
Voting on the film by the Documentary Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences® begins today through the 15th. If the film garners enough support it will be included on the short list of 15 films to be announced on the 21st of December. Faizon Love said, “Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma is the most important film of our era.”
Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma, winner of 13 Film Festival Awards is now live in the Academy Screening Room for Oscar® consideration. Said film director, Michael Douglas Carlin, “we were in Minnesota when buildings were burning in a dangerous situation capturing the essence of the George Floyd Murder protests. Our Film sheds light on the issue of police violence as several families tell heartfelt stories detailing their loss of a family member.”
At the event, Knifewing Segura said he understood the frustration with law enforcement having worked in their ranks for many years. He agreed that police and communities must sit at the table to sort out their differences instead to simply stripping funds from law enforcement organizations. “Much of what we are facing is due to budget cuts that eliminate valuable training,” said Knifewing. “We must make every dollar count by eliminating the drag on policing due to corrupt police officers. They need to find their way out of police departments.”
Former Mayor of Compton and Producer of Minnesota agreed wholeheartedly. He is widely known as the mayor that stood up to corrupt police officers that stole evidence out of the Compton Evidence Locker. When he left Compton, the city had a $63 million dollar surplus and contracting with the sheriffs eliminated millions of dollars every year from the city budget. Bradley is looking forward to making films with the Apache Tribes as his alma mater is the Centennial High School Apache. “It simply feels like a homecoming to me.”
“Knifewing and Bradley became fast friends at the event as they share so many interests,” said Carlin, “Knifewing came from a background in law enforcement to filmmaking and Bradley as the former Mayor of Compton was able to see film production through the eyes of his friend, Eazy-E. Now Bradley is a full-time filmmaker. Both men shared their stories with each other until late into the night.”
Academy members in the documentary branch can view Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma online and beginning today through December 15th can vote to get the film on the short list of 15 documentaries. So far, Minnesota has won 13 film festival awards including Best Feature Documentary at the Marina Del Rey and Silver State Film Festivals as well as Best Director at the Silicon Beach Film Festival. MVD Entertainment releases the film in January.
The Academy Qualifying Theatrical release was in October in a time, post covid, when almost anything can happen, Minnesota racked up an impressive weekend per screen average of $1,420 on a single screen at the Laemmle Monica Film Complex in Santa Monica. Minnesota beat out big screen films including Disney’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Jungle Cruise, 20th Century Studios The Last Duel, Free Guy, Bleeker Street’s Mass, I’m your Man, A24’s Lamb, National Geographic’s Becoming Cousteau, Universal’s Candyman, Dear Evan Hansen and Searchlight’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye: In most cases by nearly double.
Most people that see the film comment that they never knew that families, other than George Floyd’s, have been impacted by police violence. Minnesota tells the stories of other incidents that happened previous to the George Floyd Murder. These stories are all extremely emotional and audience members get to experience the pain through the family members’ eyes.

Michael Douglas Carlin comes from a well-established Hollywood family having sat on Fess Parker’s lap as a young child. Carlin’s grandfather worked in the movie business as a driver and teamster driving for Cecil B. DeMille, Howard Hughes and many others. His last assignment before retirement was as a driver on the Steven Spielberg film, JAWS. His father worked in the industry as a gaffer before working full-time in the lighting equipment rental business, Keylite PSI, a company that Carlin’s father founded.
Michael was a kid hanging out on the movie sets including: Ode to Billy Joe, (he had a bit part as an actor where he was directed by Max Baer Jr.); the 1976 remake of the movie, King Kong where he worked as a movie extra; and young Michael spent a summer in Chicago on the film The Fury directed by Brian DePalma where he bounced between working as an extra and a set electrician. Both King Kong and The Fury were filmed by acclaimed cinematographer, Richard Kline who would reunite with Michael Douglas Carlin on the film, Body Heat directed by Lawrence Kasdan. Carlin worked on Body Heat as a set electrician.
Carlin would later run family business Keylite PSI that supplied equipment on many notable films like Robert Redford’s Ordinary People; Brian DePalma’s the Untouchables; Oliver Stone’s JFK and Platoon; Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs; Neal Israel’s Bachelor Party; Robert Altman’s Fool For Love; John Frankenheimer’s 52 Pickup; David Lynch’s Twin Peaks; Sean Penn’s The Indian Runner; Aaron Norris’ Braddock; Blake Edwards’ That’s Life; among hundreds of others. Keylite PSI also supplied the equipment for the first night landing of the Space Shuttle Challenger, the 1979 & 1980 Academy Awards®, and for over a dozen years supplied the equipment on the Hollywood Christmas Parade an event that young Michael worked on every year. Carlin also ran two motion picture studios – Valencia Studios and Osmond Studios. In recent years Carlin directed American Federale, Tupac Assassination Battle for Compton, Larger than Life the Suge Knight Story and he Executive Produced along with Stephen Nemeth, Hearts Road directed by Colin Finlay.
In the mid to late 80s Carlin teamed up with Michael Meyer to produce a dozen low budget movies. Meyer, an entertainment lawyer, came from the management side of the business having worked with David Stewart and Larry Thompson. Meyer, was also a product of the movie business as his father personally represented Jules Stein and Lew Wasserman in the formation of Music Corporation of America, Universal Pictures and Universal Studios. Marvin Meyer of the firm of Rosenfeld, Meyer, and Sussman also represented Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, and hundreds of other notable clients.
Michael Meyer and his company Native Stars reunited with Carlin to work on Minnesota! The Modern Day Selma. Meyer said, “Minnesota, fits in with Native Stars’ mission to inspire others to make a difference wherever they can. We are proud of our participation in this important film and applaud the director, Michael Douglas Carlin, with whom I have had a longstanding business and personal friendship for many decades.”
Producing the movie, Minnesota, is Omar Bradley, the former Mayor of Compton. Bradley brought tremendous depth to the project and shaped the editing process. Bradley is known for closing down the Compton Police Department when it was discovered by internal auditors that a large amount of evidence was missing from the evidence locker including cocaine and weapons. The Los Angeles Sheriffs Department took on the policing of Compton and their contract continues to this day. Bradley was unseated as Mayor in a controversial election that was overturned by a Superior Court Judge. Bradley was unseated by the Appellate Court. When Compton was turned over to the new mayor there was no debt and $63 million in the bank, in stark contrast to the debt laden Compton of today.
Said Carlin, “Who better to produce such as salient documentary than a man from the inner-cities that understands the delicate balance between policing and the community? Bradley served as a City Councilman and Mayor. Additionally, now Omar has become an award-winning filmmaker to add to his growing body of work that includes being a published author.”
The film is likely to remain relevant under the current climate with qualified immunity impossible to overturn at the Supreme Court level. Communities and their police departments must work out their differences much like a family having a meeting at the dinner table. “We hope our film can help facilitate these important conversations,” said Bradley. “Families have experienced pain and every officer should at a minimum be aware of what families feel when they lose a loved one.”
