"Master of Disaster: A Behind-The-Scenes Mystery " by Ira Teller, introduces one of contemporary mystery fiction's most unusual protagonists, Irv North, a writer- producer of Motion Picture Movie Trailers (Coming Attractions) who's life and limbs are almost electrocuted, crushed, burned, drowned and buried alive on a movie set, where he is attempting to produce his first "Behind The Scenes documentary - aka Electronic Press kit (EPK). North, desperate to revive a once thriving motion picture marketing career, accepts a Studio assignment for a high energy, low budget, graphic novel inspired movie, "Master Of Disaster," filming in Augusta Georgia and plagued by local dissent, a series of unexplained "accidents" and a sabotage scheme. With the help of Larry and Jeff Knowl, his "Twin Tower" sized EPK cameraman and sound operator, Irv North uncovers a sabotage plot that, if successful, will not only end his new career before it begins, it could cause the deaths of innocent cast and crew members. For the first time, North is faced with putting the lives of others before his own. At first, suspicion falls on a host of Industry types, a bombastic Studio marketing executive, an egotistical film director who keeps upping the ante on the risks the stunt crew must take, a Bollywood star in his first American movie, who thinks he's immortal, his sexy firebrand assistant/ lover, who starts a riot with the Augusta locals and a publicist, who puts out PR fires and maybe starts them. In the end, it is discovered... "Master Of Disaster" is based on the author's personal experiences on movie sets and in the movie business. His very first "Behind-The-Scenes" documentary production was on the "accident" plagued movie, "The Crow," where he was the last person to interview rising star Brandon Lee, just days before the young actor's tragic, freak and startling death during filming. As Creative Director of his own Marketing Company, Ira Teller has earned many Industry awards for his innovative and successful Movie Ad Campaigns. Newsweek Magazine built an entire article around his copy line: "If this one doesn't scare you, you're already dead " His marketing credentials include producing more than 75 Behind-The-Scenes Electronic Press kits (EPKs) and documentaries, among them "Pulp Fiction," "Kiss The Girls," "Highlander 2,"Imax "Mission To Mir."and "The Crow," which became the inspiration for his first novel, "Master Of Disaster." His play " In Place Of Thought" was produced Off Broadway and his screenplay, "Silent Night, Bloody Night" was produced by Canon Films and has become a late night TV Horror cult classic; he has also been a marketing consultant for the Sundance Institute and an instructor at UCLA Extension.

Latino Image Makers in Hollywood

Performers, Filmmakers and Films Since the 1960s

Latinos have been part of the Hollywood film industry for more than 100 years, yet beyond the remarkable success of a few, their visibility and clout have generally not reflected their significance in American society. Worse, the Latino image has suffered from widespread stereotyping in film, and performers face unjustified constraints in the kinds of roles available to them. Decade by decade from 1960 onward, this book analyzes important films made by or about Latinos, details the careers of Latino performers and filmmakers of the time, and analyzes how film portrayals of Latino characters and subjects connect with political and social trends of each decade. It discusses the role of gender, social class, and ethnicity in film portrayals and provides an overview of the diverse and dynamic Latino community in the United States, while celebrating a substantial and enduring contribution to Hollywood film history.

Zur 6. Stunde des 6. Tages im 6. Monat bringt Katherine Thorn, die Frau des US-amerikanischen Botschafters in Rom, ein Kind zur Welt, das jedoch direkt nach der Geburt stirbt. Ihr Mann, Jeremy Thorn, ist erschüttert. Pater Spilletto, der im Krankenhaus arbeitet, empfiehlt ihm, das tote Baby mit einem zur selben Zeit geborenen Jungen auszutauschen, dessen Mutter jedoch bei der Geburt gestorben ist, und das auch sonst keine Angehörigen hat. Thorn zögert zunächst, lässt sich danach aber schließlich doch dazu überreden, damit seine Frau nicht wegen der Fehlgeburt trauert. Katherine indes ist sehr glücklich über das neugeborene Kind, das sie für ihr eigenes hält; es bekommt den Vornamen Damien.Doch weder Jeremy Thorn noch seine Frau können ahnen, dass dieses Kind die Wiedergeburt des Antichristen ist...David Seltzer verfasste die düstere Roman-Adaption des Films Das Omen auf der Grundlage seines eigenen Original-Drehbuchs – ein Film, der unter der Regie von Richard Donner (Superman, Der Tag des Falken, Lethal Weapon) zum Klassiker des Okkult-Horror-Genres wurde und der mit Gregory Peck, Lee Remick und David Warner hochkarätig besetzt war.
