Savannah May

Actress Savannah May can next be seen leading the cast of the Lifetime original movie,
“The Secret Lives of Cheerleaders” opposite Denise Richards. In the movie, Savannah plays ‘Ava’ an incoming transfer student, reluctantly tries out for the cheerleading team at the insistence of her overly-ambitious mother, Candice (Richards). Katrina (Allie DeBerry, A.N.T Farm), the head cheerleader and most popular girl in school, unexpectedly cozies up to Ava who makes the squad and instantly becomes high school royalty. As she transitions into her new life, Ava discovers becoming part of the squad comes at a price. “The Secret Lives of Cheerleaders” is produced by HYBRID. Additionally, Peter Sullivan serves as the director and Anna White serves as the writer. The show airs September 2nd at 8pm PST / EST.

The nineteen-year-old actress is best known for her role one Nickelodeon’s series “Knight Squad” where she played the series regular role of “Buttercup.”

Savannah was born on August 12, 2000 in Sugarland, Texas. At the age of 4, she caught the acting bug after seeing her first musical with her family. She would go on to explore her talents to become a triple threat in singing, dancing and acting. At 11-years-old, Savannah started training at the Theater Under the Stars (TUTS), Humphrey School of Musical Theater where she trained for over 5 years to develop her craft. She has performed alongside multiple respected Broadway alumni through TUTS and performed for iTheatrics in New York City. Through iTheatrics, Savannah had the opportunity to perform on Broadway with the cast of “Chicago” for a special tribute (what year did this happen). Cast performers at the time included Chita Rivera (Sweet Charity), Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers, Jumanji), Joel Grey (Cabaret) and more to celebrate John Kander’s 90th birthday. Years later she would move to Los Angeles to pursue acting, booking her first full-time gig on the pilot of Nickelodeon’s “Knight Squad,” which debuted in the Spring of 2018. Savannah also appeared in Nickelodeon’s “School of Rock” (2017), Disney’s “Bizaardvark” (2016) playing Jade, and now she’s filming season 2 of Nickelodeon’s “Knight Squad,” premiere in early 2019.

Savannah is a supporter of the fine arts. She regular supports the River Performing and Visual Arts Center in Texas, amongst others. Currently she resides in Burbank California.

Jarren frame, 360 MAGAZINE

Jarren Frame

New York artist, Jarren Frame, has made a mark in the art scene and is currently on display at world-renowned hotels and celeb hotspots such as Socialista, Sixty Hotel Soho, Mamo, Casa Malca, The Bowery Hotel, and Faena, alongside Damien Hirst’s iconic Golden Mammoth.  

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1990, Frame was inspired to step into the art world as a child from his grandfather, Philip Frame — a Sunday painter and founder of Frame Textiles Group (one time the largest blanket manufacturing business in the world). Philip would teach his grandson to paint flowers on weekends, igniting a spark leading him to pursue art full-time.

In October 2017, Frame displayed a series of James Bond-inspired works known as “The Playboy Paintings” during his first solo exhibition alongside photographer Peter Cary Peterson at The SIXTY SoHo Hotel. Following its success, he collaborated with Puerto Rican artist Jorge Zeno on “Zeno Gravity” on another Bond-inspired piece.

A rotating selection of artworks from his first collection titled “Bond, James Bond,” debuted in December 2017 at 77 Greene Street in New York. The series of 33 acrylic-on-wood pieces featured the recontextualization of vintage James Bond imagery over modern-day landscapes. The idea was born during a trip to Sardinia, where the 1977 classic film The Spy Who Loved Me was shot. ‘‘’Bond, James Bond’ was created on such an impulse. What I sought to do with those paintings was neutralize some of the shame around sex and masculinity. That’s really what those paintings are about: Fun, sex and champagne.”All 33 pieces sold out within a year, attracting a number of bold-face name buyers such as Chris Burch, Steve Wynn, Barron Hilton, former United States Secretary of Commerce Peter George Peterson, Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers, and hoteliers including Jason Pomeranc andJason Strauss.

Frame’s current collection, “Colors,” is another series of 33 paintings – this time acrylic-on-canvas and was inspired by the meaning we assign to colors and is meant to confront the viewer with the enormous diversity of choice we have. “‘Colors’ are a way of bottling up excitement and happiness that provide the power to inspire and uplift in addition to capturing and championing the spirit of individuality.”  The series premiered, for a limited-time at Socialista and Surf Lodge in July 2019.

K-Syran performs

In K-Syran‘s Words:

What a week! From my shoot in a studio in London where I stayed 3 hours in a pool filming underwater shots in the beautiful Three Graces dresses, to flying to Malaga for my Manilva Pride gig.

Spain is beautiful with it’s gorgeous coast line and delicious food.
I arrived the day before so that I could get to enjoy swimming in the sea.
On the big day, Saturday, I was picked up by a lovely man who volunteered to help out. This is why I love performing for GayPride; it’s a celebration of love and everyone is so generous and helpful. The tech went brilliantly with super talented producer Dan Boots and team from Intimacy Records attending, checking sound and images. I didn’t get to meet my dancers but lucky to finally meet amazing Christian Lee Dun who organises Manilva Pride.

We were all picked up at around ten thirty, I was dolled up in my striking green K-Syran designer dress by renowned Zaid Farouki and jewlery by Esfir Jewels – I felt like a diva! There were thousands of people already attending cheering and having a wonderful time.

I had the best time ever on stage with them and the loving fun audience cheering us on. Such a thrill to perform my own songs live in front of an audience who are so warm and generous and to see them dancing to my tunes makes me feel that all the work I do is defiantly worth it!

About K-Syran

Releasing two albums (Smoke In My Veins and Dizzy), topping several billboard charts and evenhaving one of her singles being nominated as the anthem of International Women’s Day 2016, K-Syran’s journey continues to demonstrate an exciting path.

Hermosa Beach to Host Teen Choice Awards Show

TEEN CHOICE 2019 will be broadcast for the first time from Hermosa Beach on Sunday, August 11, featuring performances by stars from TV, music, film and social media. This will be the first time the popular awards show, which gives teens the power to select the winners, will be broadcast live from a beach.

We are so thrilled to host TEEN CHOICE 2019 in Hermosa Beach, said Hermosa Beach Mayor Stacey Armato.

The company is planning an enhanced program that will include comedy, movies by the beach, beach cleanups and more on the three other weekends in August: August 3-4, August 17-18 and August 24-25.

With TEEN CHOICE 2019 coming to Hermosa for the first time and 5B Artists + Media launching its enhanced concert series with more entertainment and community activities, the summer of 2019 is sure to be exciting and entertaining for all our residents in Hermosa Beach, said Mayor Armato.

Tom Cronin and Superhuman International are pleased to announce the World Premiere of THE PORTAL at the 22ndAnnual Dances With Films in Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at 2:45pm at TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in the heart of Hollywood. The film was produced by international meditation expert, Tom Cronin and directed by first-time Australian female director, Jacqui Fifer. The film will be followed by a Q&A with cast and crew, and Cronin and Fifer will be participating in various panels throughout the festival.

THE PORTAL ASKS
As the doomsday clock ticks progressively louder: What would happen if 7 billion people meditated? Could it shift the trajectory of our planet?
THE PORTAL is an immersive, cinematic experience that answers the question: How can we really change the world?
Through heart-opening contemplation and shared experiences of transformation on a personal scale, with global implications, six ordinary people (and a robot) show how stillness and mindfulness can unlock personal change and ignite a planetary shift, providing hope to humankind.
“We are thrilled to be screening at Dances With Films and to give audiences around the world a first-look at THE PORTAL, a film that resonates strongly within the global marketplace, the entertainment industry, and our global community as a whole,” said Cronin. “THE PORTAL is a commercially viable film that raises the genre bar while remaining true to its core messageit’s a film for everyone.”
Filmed in the USA, Canada, Australia and a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, THE PORTAL is richly visual and sonically powerful. Mesmerizing cinematography and the raw intimate stories draw the audience in, while the immersive soundscape breaks ground in film history with its use of binaural beats in an already evocative score.
“The result is like the casting of a gentle spell, an invitation to slip into a meditation and experience your own metamorphosis,” said former Ibiza DJ, Fifer. “We wanted to push the boundaries with this unique and transformational hybrid feature film experience.”
Tom Cronin is founder of The Stillness Project, a global movement to inspire one billion people to sit in stillness, daily. He is passionate about reducing stress and chaos in people’s lives. Tom’s ongoing work in transformational leadership and cultivating inner peace through meditation takes him around the world presenting keynote talks in such countries as Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Mexico and the USA; hosting retreats; mentoring clients across the globe; teaching in schools; writing books; hosting mindfulness courses in the corporate sector; and creating THE PORTAL film-book experience, all as part of his commitment to the current planetary shift.
Jacqui Fifer has had a dynamic career in the film industry line producing such films as Better Watch Out( 2016), The Osiris Child (2016) and Infini (2015) as well as producing the multi-award winning dramatic feature Concealed (2017). She also co-directed the 2012 and 2013 “Dones en Art” (Women and Film) festivals in Spain. An advocate of human capacity development, Jacqui is thrilled to turn her hand towards a subject that is close to her heart. THE PORTAL is her feature directorial debut.
Enter THE PORTAL
Supported by insights from three of the world’s foremost futurists and philosophers, THE PORTAL opens hearts and minds to an exciting vision for humanity transformed. “The world is changing and we can’t play by the old rules anymore” Said Cronin. “This is not sci-fi—this is real life. Humankind is staring into an abyss, yet within us all we have the capability to bring ourselves (and our species) back from the brink. We’re part of a growing movement of game-changers to create a reimagined global futureI think people are ready for something different.”
THE PORTAL weaves a captivating and vibrant tapestry of technology, love, existentialism, human potential, brain-hacking, stillness and inner peace. It is an experiential and genre-defining approach to personal change as we embark on the next phase of human evolution.
“The timing couldn’t be better for a film like this.” Said Fifer. “We’re all grappling to find our way in an increasingly high-tech, sensorially demanding world and this film is an antidote: a visceral and sensorial experience for the viewer that actually moves them beyond the senses. We see it as a pathway to a sustainable future for us as a species”
Is an enlightened planet possible? Enter THE PORTAL and see.

Maggie Lindemann Stars In Friends Go

Maggie Lindemann has consistently challenged her self-identity and evolved as an artist throughout a career that’s already seen her pass the billion streams landmark. Her breakthrough smash ‘Pretty Girl’ established her as a breaking pop icon before she took a reflective, goth-tinged approach with ‘Would I’ and ‘Human’.

Her latest cut ‘Friends Go’ continues her exploration of mental health issues, but the music has shifted again with a modernist update of Gwen Stefani-style attitude and summery island rhythms. Now Maggie uses ‘Friends Go’ as the soundtrack to the short film ‘Death By Third Wheel’, which was directed by Van Alpert (Post Malone, Local Natives). 

Van Alpert’s vision for the track is cinematic in scale, and captures the emotional heart of the song in a way that’s visually striking.

He commented, “My goal is making a video feel bigger than life, something that you’d only see in a movie theatre – a little escape from your life while you watch. I wanted the car to be a representation of Maggie’s heart. The car crashing, bouncing and exploding in artistic ways gives you an overall feeling of excitement. When you lose your mind from being excluded from your friends or love, your heart goes through it, just like the car. 

I strayed away from the obvious storyline, with the backbone being multiple beautiful crashes where no-one gets hurt. The video is fun and surprising. It hits you over the head and gives you clues throughout of what’s coming. It was the most fun I’ve ever had making a video.”

‘Friends Go’ commences Maggie’s build-up to her first full-length project which is set to be released later in the year. It’s set to add another new chapter to a career in which Maggie has emerged as an icon of her generation, with over a billion audio streams, 5.4 million monthly listeners at Spotify, 186 million views at YouTube, 3.5 million followers at Instagram and an international array of Platinum awards. She’s also performed with Khalid, Troye Sivan and Sabrina Carpenter. She has garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Complex, Uproxx, NYLON, Bustle, Idolator, L’Officiel as well as Paper, who named her as one of “100 Women Revolutionizing Pop.”

Maggie has been further celebrated in the world of fashion. She launched her single ‘Obsessed’ with an innovative partnership with the make-up brand Pat McGrath and recently teamed up with Skinny Dip for a sunglasses collaboration. She’s also unveiled her own merch line in the shape of SWIXXZ.

Marchesa Donates Crazy Rich Asians Gown

Marchesa Donates Crazy Rich Asians Gown to the Smithsonian at Los Angeles Event

Dress Joins Collections in the National Museum of American History

Marchesa is donating the iconic blue dress that played an integral role in the Warner Bros. Pictures film Crazy Rich Asians to the National Museum of American History. The dress will be presented May 18 during “The Party: A Smithsonian Celebration of Asian Pacific Americans,” a Los Angeles event hosted by the Smithsonian’s Asian Pacific American Center at City Market Social House. “The Party” will celebrate and recognize the many contributions of Asian Pacific Americans to history and culture across industries, including music, film, sports and culinary arts. Tickets are available at Smithsonianapa.org.

This blue gown is part of a pivotal moment in the film’s plot in which Rachel Chu, played by actress Constance Wu, attends a high-profile wedding in defiance of her boyfriend’s disapproving mother Eleanor Young, played by Michelle Yeoh. The gown is a floor-length Grecian-style dress made of light blue tulle with floral applique, a deep V-neck and a cinched waist. The original version of the dress designed by Marchesa for its fall 2016 collection featured long sleeves, but they were temporarily removed by the film’s production for aesthetic purposes. The museum will receive the altered sleeveless version that appeared in the film.

“The film’s use of fashion is not merely decorative or secondary,” said Theodore S. Gonzalves, curator in the Division of Culture and Community Life at the National Museum of American History. “The cast’s clothing plays a crucial role in marking social class among its characters—from multi-generational moneyed elites of Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese immigrants), to the nouveau riche strivers of Singapore, to working class Chinese immigrants in the United States and their Asian American model minority progeny.”

Crazy Rich Asians is notable for having a mostly East Asian cast, the first Hollywood film to do so since The Joy Luck Club in 1993. The Warner Bros. film grossed $238 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy in a decade. The Crazy Rich Asians Marchesa gown joins a rich collection of museum artifacts with origins in film and entertainment such as Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz, Batman’s cowl from Batman and Robin and a handmaid’s costume from The Handmaid’s Tale TV show. The museum’s Archives Center also has a number of other theatrical scripts, video and audiotapes in its Luther Davis Collection.

“Representation of Asian Pacific Americans in film and media is critical to the visibility of a community who has made many contributions to the arts,” said Lisa Sasaki, director of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center. “By collecting the film’s iconic dress, the Smithsonian is better able to present these contributions to the world.”

Marchesa is an American brand specializing in women’s wear based in New York City. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig established it in 2004.

From its establishment in 1997 as an initiative critical to the mission of the Smithsonian until today, the vision for the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center has been to enrich the American story with the voices of Asian Pacific Americans. Asian Pacific America is the story of a vibrant, diverse and resilient set of communities that have been part of the American experience for more than 200 years. The center believes that people’s understanding of America and America’s standing in the world is richer, more compelling and more powerful when it includes the Asian Pacific American story. “The Party” also marks the launch of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Keystone Initiative, which is designed to rally support for the first permanent Asian Pacific American Gallery within the Smithsonian. The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center serves as a dynamic national resource for discovering why the Asian Pacific American experience matters every day, everywhere and all of the time.

Through incomparable collections, rigorous research and dynamic public outreach, the National Museum of American History explores the infinite richness and complexity of American history. It helps people understand the past in order to make sense of the present and shape a more informed future. The museum is located on Constitution Avenue N.W., between 12th and 14th streets, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (closed Dec. 25). Admission is free.

Homecoming

Netflix released Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé, which presents an intimate look at her historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming gives a peek into the process and emotional physical sacrifices it took to conceptualize and execute a performance of that magnitude that became a cultural movement. This stand-alone Netflix original is now available globally on Netflix.

As the first black woman to headline Coachella, Homecoming recognizes the African American visionaries who inspired Beyoncé, including HBCU alums Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, activist Marian Wright Edelman, and scholar W.E.B. Du Bois, in addition to cultural luminaries such as Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Audre Lorde. Beyoncé’s personal knowledge of the relevance and celebration of HBCUs started with her father, Mathew Knowles, an alumnus of Fisk University.
Shot over eight months, the film follows the global entertainer as she returns to the stage after the birth of her twins, highlighting the comprehensive preparation involved in creating her groundbreaking performance, which included four months of band rehearsals followed by four months of dance rehearsals with over 150 musicians, dancers, and other creatives, — all of whom were hand-picked by the artist herself.
In juggling dual roles as both the director of her live performance and the film that captured the process of making it, Beyoncé says, “It was one of the hardest jobs I have taken on but I knew that I had to push myself and my team to go beyond great to legendary. We knew nothing like this was ever done on a festival level before and it needed to be iconic beyond compare. The performance was an homage to an important part of African American culture. It had to be true to those who know and entertaining and enlightening to those who needed to learn. In making the film and re-telling the story, the purpose remained the same.”
Many in the cast; band, singers, dancers and steppers are former HBCU students, immersed in the HBCU marching band tradition. They joined Beyoncé’s own group of performers, some who have toured with her for years. Viewers not only get to see the intense dance rehearsals and talent of these amazing artists, but hear their personal journey from HBCU student to artist and the lifelong impact that comes with performing alongside Beyoncé in this historic concert.
“So many people who are culturally aware and intellectually sound are graduates from historically black colleges and universities, including my father,” she says in the film. “There is something incredibly important about the HBCU experience that must be celebrated and protected.”
As a treat to her fans, the film also includes, in the end credits, her remake of “Before I Let Go” by Frankie Beverly and Maze, a 1981 R&B classic that’s commonly performed at HBCU games. The single will be available on the film’s soundtrack, Homecoming: The Live Album, available today from Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. smarturl.it/BH9102
Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé was directed and produced by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. Longtime collaborator Ed Burke served as co-director. Steve Pamon and Erinn Williams are executive producers.
