OTOSOTU HAS A NEW MOVIE POSTER

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, April 4, 2024, In : books and movies 

WHAT’S better than one movie poster? Two, especially if the second one is even better! OTOSOTU (pronounced “Oh-Toe-So-Two” for “On The Other Side Of The Universe”) now has two posters, the second replacing the first as the official first poster. Yep, it’s that good, or I should say better. But, hey, I still like the original first as it has my picture on it in my roles as Imperax Commander Michael Mylo AND that of his son, Captain-Major Brit Mylo; Sakura Kai as his wife, Carol Myl...

THE SAG-AFTRA ACTORS’ STRIKE

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, July 14, 2023, In : books and movies 

MY opinions expressed are typically those of but one of 336 million individual Americans spanning an increasingly disparate spectrum of opinions. But being a SAG actor, the SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike, in fact, affects me not only as an inveterate film enthusiast, but also as an actor AND filmmaker.


As an actor — https://janik.yolasite.com/actor.php — it means a cessation of work in a field of endeavor not only my livelihood but my passion. Acting opportunities are rarely tightly consecut...

WITH A “WEY, HEY, BLOW THE MAN DOWN…

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, December 19, 2022, In : books and movies 

HAVING left San Francisco for the paradisiacal climes of the Hawaiian Islands, I suddenly find myself hunkering down today and supposedly tomorrow for a tropical storm alert replete with 60 mph wind gusts, intermittent 45 degree pelting rain, thunder, lightening and hail. Yes, hail! Can you believe it? Well don’t. It may be coming our way, but it hasn’t arrived en mass, yet. The operative word being “yet.” In the meantime I busier than I’ve ever been with acting and authoring.

CLEAN WATER, COMMON GROUND

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, December 8, 2022, In : PTW 

A lot’s been said about the environment over the past couple decades, but when I was invited to work for the University of Hawaii in 1993 to serve as the Northshore Water Quality Agent as part of the University Extension Service, I said doubled down and said my part about the environment by Executive Producing the two-Telly-award-winning movie, CLEAN WATER, COMMON GROUND — https://m.imdb.com/title/tt1548932.


In fact, it was more of a cooperative agreement than entertainment, publicly bin...
