In How the Deer Moon Hungers, Mackenzie Fraser knows that her parents aren’t getting back together. Despite her attempts to shelter her seven-year-old sister, Tessa, from the truth, she cannot protect her from brutal realities. Then, on a trip into town, a drunk driver crashes into Tessa, killing her.

Because Mackenzie had marijuana in her possession when Tessa died, she is sentenced to eighteen months in a juvenile detention center for intent to distribute. In detention, Mackenzie experiences violence and sexual abuse, both from other girls and from staff members. Over the course of eighteen months, she considers her relationships with her parents, her friend Gemma, and others affected by Tessa’s death.

SECRET WALLS ACADEMY LAUNCHES ONLINE SUMMER CAMP TO INSPIRE THE NEXT WAVE OF STREET ARTISTS AMID COVID-19

Secret Walls Academy

Secret Walls Academy Camper

Summer is virtually canceled this year, but Secret Walls Academy is responding in kind with a disruptive solution to summer camp and arts education.

Our mission with the summer camp is to create something unique, authentic, and purpose-driven in a time when the world craves it most. ”

— Terry Guy (Secret Walls founder)

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, July 7, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Spurred by the social distancing mandates of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the governments’ continued slashing of art and education budgets, the first-ever Secret Walls Academy Summer Camp will immerse one-hundred teen and pre-teen students, aged 10 – 17, in a comprehensive curriculum of art history, and illustration techniques, to build confidence in the next generation of free-style street artists. Students will learn from special guest speakers, Ralph Villalobos (SW Program Director & Senior Arts Teacher at Da Vinci Schools), Terry Guy (SW Founder), and all-star artists like Nina Polomba, Geoff Gouveia, Lillipore, GoopMassta, and Paper Frank leading each class, with more to be confirmed.

Running July 20 to July 24, 2020, the week-long program will provide crash courses in free-style drawing, commercial design, and mural planning, all while building character, fostering open collaboration and enhancing storytelling abilities. Though the program will convene online over Zoom, the academy is designed to replicate a traditional summer camp experience and enrich students with both a foundational arts education and potentially, lifelong friends.
25 spots in the summer camp have been reserved for scholarship recipients who demonstrate incredible artistic ability and potential but may not have the means to pay for the summer camp.

“Our mission with the summer camp is to create something unique, authentic, and purpose-driven in a time when the world craves it most,” says Secret Walls founder Terry Guy. “Life as we know it has changed. Our routines have changed. The way we consume has changed. And the way we absorb experiences has changed. But what will never change is that people need art, music, and creative outlets that are real, topical and culturally progressive. This summer camp is a way to bring the next generation of artists together around this need, and inspire them to make something out of this challenging moment in time.”

Though lessons will be taught online, students will have a healthy balance of online and offline courses, activities & projects to keep them fresh and engaged. Prior to the camp starting, the campers will receive an art pack with supplies for the week and some cool Secret Walls merchandise. Each day’s programming will be structured around a theme, that includes mural planning and character building, among others. On the final day, students will bring together everything they learned with a camp-wide Secret Walls tournament, that includes a host, DJ, and renown guest judges.

Camp attendees will hail from all over the US, as well as internationally. Sessions will take place online from July 20th to 24th, from 10am to 3:30pm Pacific Time.

Spots are going fast! For more information, and an updated schedule of events, visit www.thesecretwalls.com/summercamp.

LAS VEGAS, NV, US, July 7, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The widespread “arrival” of the Internet in the 1990s has changed many things about the way people live, and businesses operate. As with any significant change, such as the arrival of the automobile, some industries, like “wagon-wrights” could no longer compete. In the same way, the advent of the Internet changed businesses in many unexpected ways, such as changing the way people consumed music and bringing about the end of larger retail chains, like Tower Records, or even big bookstores chains such as Borders.

In other ways, however, the Internet has helped businesses in unexpected ways. Despite the availability of information online, for example, people still need—and often prefer—to get physical items, and if it can be delivered to their door, so much the better. This is one way that Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide can help businesses by providing valuable catalog and magazine mailing lists.

The Story Of Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide
Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing is a 100% American business that is owned and operated by a disabled veteran. After making the sacrifice to serve the country, the decision was made to continue professional growth and help the American business community at the same time. So Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide got its humble start in its home region of Las Vegas, Nevada. Now years later, the management of this growing enterprise has over 50 years of combined marketing and sales experience. We can turn your start up company or small company into BIG BUSINESS!

When Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide first began, it was in the per-Internet era with one of the older and most effective forms of marketing, direct mail. Throughout the decades, this form of marketing has continued to remain productive. It is still practiced by Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide even today. The growth in this area of marketing resulted in the company expanding well beyond its local roots. Today, Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide serves clients in every state of the country, including Hawaii and Alaska. Lists are now available for other countries as well, such as Mexico and France across the Atlantic.

Print Is Not Dead
With the arrival of digital content, many people predicted “the death of print.” While there have been some changes to the way print media is produced and distributed, the idea that print is fading in popularity and usefulness is far from correct. eBooks, for example, have not decimated the traditional print book market. In fact, younger generations of readers, such as Millennial's prefer print to digital consumption.

In the same way, magazines and catalogs, though older forms of media and marketing have lost very little efficacy in the digital era. Print is a tactile medium, and quality photographs in print are still an effective means of getting the point across. Print also has the virtue of being easily accessible in that it requires no Internet connection or electronic display to be consumed. It’s always there, ready to go.

As a result, catalogs and magazines still have appeal to the general public, and not just the older demographic of “Baby Boomers.” A quality magazine or catalog, delivered to someone’s mailbox, gets more attention, Unlike digital marketing, it is also much easier to keep in mind since it is a separate, isolated unit, rather than one email in a pile of mails, or a banner or a post that is quickly scrolled past on a social media account. Print has a physical presence, and when it is done well, it maintains that presence in a home or business.

A Unique Form Of Marketing
Catalogs and magazines may be an older format, but they still play a useful and relevant role in today’s marketing. The catalog is itself a staple of home shopping. In the past, catalogs were limited to two types of usage. They would either entice potential shoppers to go to a physical location to buy the item or if when offered, allowed shoppers to order the item through the mail and have the purchase delivered to their home.

In the 21st century, ordering items for home delivery has become easier than ever, thanks to the Internet. With the rise of new health concerns, such as COVID-19, physical shopping has become more limited and regulated in different states in the country. As a result, the catalog has gained new relevance as a way for people at home to peruse items of interest, but the catalog is now bolstered by the Internet rather than hurt by it. The catalog acts as a gateway to making an online order, which is much faster and more convenient than the traditional ordering by mail, which was very slow due to postal delivery times, or even ordering by phone, which required communicating sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, to another party. Internet purchases now make catalog shopping a faster, more efficient process, without compromising on the marketing qualities that make the catalog itself a compelling sales mechanism. Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has lists for catalog mailing for virtually every type of targeted consumers. Ramp UP SALES Today1

Reaching Your Audience
Of course, the most effective kind of marketing is targeted marketing. A business that specializes in geriatric products, for example, is better served promoting itself to a retirement community, rather than a college dorm. This is where Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide provides the most value to clients.

We have extensive experience and records in specific demographics, based on a wide range of different profile characteristics. These databases are meticulously compiled for every state and are continuously reevaluated to ensure they remain current and relevant to client interests. This ensures that when clients target a specific market, they get a much higher response rate due to the careful curation of leads generation. Sprint Data Worldwide Solutions is committed to helping businesses get more from their marketing dollars not by targeting as many random customers as possible but precisely targeting the markets that will respond best, divided by categories like:
• Age
• Ethnicity
• Debt
• Age of Children
• Renter
• Homeowner
• Income
• Marital Status
• Mortgage Data
400 Different Lifestyles Selects Available
• Geography
• Veteran Status

And much, much more. If you want your catalogs and magazines to get into the hands of your market, we can help. Come to Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide and let us provide you with the catalog and magazine direct mail lists that will make a difference. Pick up the phone or send an email and Sprint Data Solutions with have your telephone doing the twist right on your desk with NEW CUSTOMERS ready to purchase.

U.S. Rare Coin Market Quite Active Despite Pandemic, Reports Professional Numismatists Guild

With a winning bid of $2,160,000, this 1927-D Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle was the most valuable U.S. rare coin sold at auction during the first half of 2020. (Image courtesy of Professional Coin Grading Service www.PCGS.com.)

Auction houses set records with over $167 million in winning bids during the first six months of 2020

Dozens of record prices were established for coins selling for five, six, and even seven figures.”

— Richard Weaver

TEMECULA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The market for high-quality, rare United States coins remained active during the first six months of 2020 despite pandemic-related closures of many retail locations and cancelation of dozens of coin shows and numismatic conventions around the country, according to the Professional Numismatists Guild (www.PNGdealers.org). The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the country’s top rare coin and paper money experts.

“Even with economic uncertainty and the lack of face-to-face transactions and in-person floor bidding, major auction firms reported selling more than $167 million of U.S. rare coins in online public auctions during the first half of the year. Dozens of record prices were established for coins selling for five, six, and even seven figures,” said PNG President Richard Weaver.

One of the many examples of superb quality rare coins commanding record prices was the $101,251 winning bid for the finest known 1905 Barber design silver quarter-dollar graded PCGS MS68 CAC offered by GreatCollections Coin Auctions. It sold for four times its price guide value.

Over a half dozen coins brought $1 million or more. The two most valuable U.S. coins sold at auction so far in 2020 were a record $2,160,000 for a 1927-D Saint-Gaudens gold $20 (Double Eagle) graded PCGS Mint State 65+ CAC sold by Heritage Auctions, and $1,920,000 for an 1854-S gold $5 (Half Eagle) graded PCGS About Uncirculated 58 CAC sold by Stack’s Bowers Galleries.

In addition to the reported auction results, PNG conservatively estimates that least another $150 million of U.S. coins were sold by these auction firms in private transactions in the first half of the year.

“Sales of precious metal bullion coins, such as gold and silver American Eagles, also have been active and premiums over their intrinsic value have risen as supplies dwindled due to pandemic-related interruptions of coin production at the United States Mint,” said Weaver.

“As always, to avoid counterfeits we recommend that buyers of rare coins or bullion coins should only purchase from reputable, knowledgeable dealers, such as members of the Professional Numismatists Guild and its Accredited Precious Metals Dealer program (www.APMDdealers.org),” he emphasized.

Auction firms responding to a PNG request for information were Bonhams (www.bonhams.com): Ira & Larry Goldberg Auctioneers (www.GoldbergCoins.com): GreatCollections Coin Auctions (www.GreatCollections.com); Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com): Kagin's (www.Kagins.com): David Lawrence Rare Coins (www.DavidLawrence.com): Scotsman Coin & Jewelry (www.scoins.com): Stack's Bowers Galleries (www.StacksBowers.com); and Spink (www.Spink.com).

Additional information also was obtained through online auction archives at Christie’s (www.Christies.com); Legend Rare Coin Auctions (www.LegendAuctions.com); and Sotheby’s (www.Sothebys.com).

Professional Numismatists Guild members must adhere to a strict code of ethics in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise. For additional information, visit www.PNGdealers.org or contact the PNG by phone at 951-587-8300 or email at info@pngdealers.org.

Ten Movies that Changed the Movies

The shelter-in-place policies have given us the opportunity and impetus to take another look at the iconic films that have shaped moviemaking the past 50 years.

PHOENIX , ARIZONA, USA, July 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With limited ability to go to theatres in 2020, we should take the opportunity to remember some of the films we enjoyed in the past. These "Ten Movies that Changed the Movies" are not all Oscar-Best-Picture winners; but they were all revolutionary. They were game changers that provided universal memories for all of us who saw them. These movies changed the way movies were made.

1. Jurassic Park–“Dinosaurs that run:" A dream of Stephen Spielberg led to development of techniques that made clay models and stop action obsolete. Anyone during the summer of 1993 had the same look of shock and awe as the character Alan did when he first saw the brontosaurus.
2. North by Northwest–A four-minute crop duster chase with actor Cary Grant, composer Bernard Herrmann and Alfred Hitchcock at their heights, created a perfect storm and a perfect movie.
3. The Ten Commandments–Cecil B. DeMille used up to 14,000 extras and special effects that (while primitive by today’s standards and the fact that you already know the ending) created still-exciting, spiritually-inspiring scenes.
4. A Quiet Place–Who would fund a screenplay with no dialogue and a woman giving birth in a bathtub? Luckily, star/director John Krasinski and producer Michael Bay believed. This "silent" picture was actually nominated for a 2019 Oscar in Sound Editing. While this surprise hit did not win that award, it won many others, including AFI Movie of the Year.
5. Get Out–Another surprise was 2017's Get Out, the first movie by comedian Jordan Peele. Peele explored issues of race in a horror movie, in a way not seen since Night of the Living Dead. The movie inspired lively, sometimes heated, discussion groups at universities and clubs around the country. It showed how differently whites and Blacks experience life in America (e.g., exposing many white people to the dangers of “driving while Black” for the first time).
6. Psycho—Anthony Perkin's Norman Bates performance was so unforgettable; it probably inhibited his future career. This Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece changed American movie-going habits, like what ages should see what. My mother would not allow me to go see it, but my 10-year-older sister could. During this era, people used to arrive at a theater at any time, even after the movie had started, and could stay, see it through a second time if they desired. When Psycho came out, customers were advised to see it from the beginning and warned not to tell others about the twists. Hitchcock continued to create more great thrillers.
7. Star Wars–Kids knew they were in for something special as soon as the opening credits scrolled. This 1977 George Lucas film started a serial saga that would stretch over nine installments and 40 years, into the next century. It did not tackle serious cultural issues, like the Star Trek television had in the 1960's; the Star Wars movies were strictly fun, fast-paced entertainment for all ages.
8. Do The Right Thing–Spike Lee exploded into the public's consciousness with this complex urban drama. While many white people were surprised and shocked by the ending, most African-Americans moviegoers understood Mookie's character arc during the film. Though it was over 30 years ago, the film was prophetic of the current furor over the George Floyd murder.
9. Memento—Many people today might not be able to name the actor (Guy Pierce) or remember who directed it (though this is thought to be one of Jonathan Nolan's best films); but this Oscar-nominated movie proved movie storyboards did not have to be chronological. It is worth seeing this cult favorite, which was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry, for the first or the 10th time.
10. The French Connection —Gene Hackman’s 1970's Jimmy Doyle was nothing like the 1950’s Joe Friday. "Popeye" was flawed, obsessed, and loved by enthusiastic movie audiences: he was the role model for the many anti-heroes that followed. The five-minute iconic car chase also became a required feature of innumerable action movies thereafter.

There are others– Honorable Mentions–that did not make my top ten For instance, though 1967's Wait until Dark was not a horror movie, director Terrance Young created one of the most shocking moments in modern movie history. The encounter between Audrey Hepburn and Alan Arkin would be imitated in every scream-inducing thriller since.

In the Heat of the Night gave us a different type of shock; it delivered a cultural slap heard around the world. Sidney Poitier, a proud, intelligent, and defiant detective shattered the screen stereotypes of Black males, drew cheers from Black movie goers. It would also send chills through whites in the South, where Poitier could not stay in the whites-only hotel during the shooting of scenes for the movie. Unfortunately, this movie is still relevant today.

From A Fistful of Dollars through The Unforgiven-Clint Eastwood changed the look of westerns. Gritty and violent, Eastwood's silent, no-named characters, in what were called "spaghetti westerns" in the 1960's, were very different from the clean-cut John Wayne cowboys, and were very appealing to the rebellious youth of America.

Goldfinger–Though 1962's Dr. No started it, in 1964, this was the blockbuster which made martinis, Aston Martins, a slick, sarcastic spy named James Bond and its star Sean Connery so popular. The theme song, opening credits, soulful ballads and crazy gadgets populated over 25 movies. Americans were always anxious for more. Due to COVID-19, we will have to wait until 2021 for the last Daniel Craig outing–No Time to Die.

Jaws–While Psycho temporarily changed Americans' shower habits, Spielberg scared people out of the ocean in 1975. While the sequels were not very good, Jaws helped start the trend of summer blockbusters, where the studios competed to release their biggest money-makers when schools let out.

With the proliferation of Netflix. Prime Video, Disney Plus, TCM, and numerous other sources, we have the wonderful capability to revisit these films and see how the trends we take for granted got started.
