One lucky “Catch the Magic” winner and three guests will enjoy a magical vacation, where their Walt Disney World adventure on water includes a guided fishing excursion and driving Sea Raycers, both presented by Take Me Fishing. The vacation continues on land with a stay in the middle of the magic at a select Walt Disney World Resort hotel and admission to all four theme parks, as well as dining, shopping and entertainment experiences.  Official Rules available on Disney.com/CatchTheMagic.

“The ‘Catch the Magic’ sweepstakes celebrates the alliance between RBFF’s Take Me Fishing campaign and Walt Disney World Resort by giving families the chance to win an unforgettable vacation,” said Frank Peterson, president and CEO of RBFF. “Together we continue to offer fun, educational and family-friendly catch-and-release fishing and boating experiences for guests at the Walt Disney World Resort.”

To prepare for a fishing trip, people of all ages and experience levels can get everything they need to learn, plan and equip for a successful day on the water at Take Me Fishing’s official website, TakeMeFishing.org, along with its Spanish language counterpart, VamosAPescar.org.

Marvel’s “Avengers” Superpowers Meet Autism Superpowers

Marvel's "Avengers" Superpowers Meet Autism Superpowers

Marvel’s “Avengers” Superpowers Meet Autism Superpowers

Not all the heroes with superpowers are on the big screen in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the year’s most anticipated movie that opened in theaters this month.

Some are behind the screen.

Earlier at the cast and crew screening held at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Los Angeles, four young adults with autism from Exceptional Minds Studio were singled out by Marvel Studios’ Executive VP of Visual Effects and Post Production Victoria Alonso for their work on the film.

“It was the first time that any of our young artists were recognized publicly on behalf of Exceptional Minds,” commented Susie Zwerman, Executive Producer and Job Developer for Exceptional Minds. “It was a wonderful moment of industry recognition and we are so proud to be a part of this amazing film.”

The four completed tracker-marker cleanup as well as the end title credits for the film, proving once again that what individuals with autism might lack in social skills, they make up for in visual artistry, focus, and attention to detail – or what some call the superpowers of autism.

“It’s not just the big hero shots that matter; it’s absolutely every single little detail which creates the whole aesthetic, the whole story. And the work (they’ve) done has helped to build that,” said Marvel Studio’s visual effects supervisor Christopher Townsend.

“I hope you are as proud of their work up on the screen as we are,” he added, referring to the visual effects team including Patrick Brady, Lloyd Hackl, Eli Katz and Christopher Chapman.

The four are 2014 graduates of Exceptional Minds vocational school for young adults with autism, which is co-located with Exceptional Minds Studio in Sherman Oaks, California.

Exceptional Minds is the only school and working studio for young adults on the spectrum pursuing careers in visual effects and related fields. The school was started in 2011 to help these young men and women transition from high school into meaningful careers through accredited instruction and professional work experience.

All in their early to mid-20s and on the spectrum, three of the four artists completed tracking-marker removal for Marvel Studios, the production company for “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” The fourth, Christopher Chapman, along with the help of Exceptional Minds staff Josh Dagg and freelance VFX Title Supervisor William Lebeda, completed a huge amount of cast and crew credits in a 7.5 minute end-credit crawl for the movie.

“This title project was massive in scope and complexity with dozens of revisions that had to be addressed quickly and accurately. But this is what our team does naturally… extreme attention to detail is first nature to them,” said Craig Seitz, Exceptional Minds Head of Production.

Exceptional Minds is known for its close working relationship with the visual effects industry.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is the latest in a growing list of visual effects projects by Exceptional Minds students and graduates, who have worked on more than a dozen projects, including films “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and “American Hustle.”

“They are all huge fans of Marvel and cannot wait to put a poster from Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron on our studio wall,” said Zwerman.

The cast and crew screening was held the evening of April 28 at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Los Angeles. The movie opened in U.S. theaters May 1.

Tomorrowland stars George Clooney (Gravity, Ocean’s 11), Hugh Laurie (House, Blackadder) and Britt Robertson (Scream 4, Life Unexpected) in an epic science fiction movie from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as Tomorrowland. What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever. Featuring a screenplay by Brad Bird and Lost writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof, from a story by Lindelof & Jeff Jensen and Bird, Tomorrowland promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.

Emmy-winning Imagination Movers Unveil Fun, High-energy Rock Music for Kids and Parents on New “Licensed to Move” CD/DVD

Emmy-winning Imagination Movers Unveil Fun, High-energy Rock Music for Kids and Parents on New "Licensed to Move" CD/DVD

Emmy-winning Imagination Movers Unveil Fun, High-energy Rock Music for Kids and Parents on New “Licensed to Move” CD/DVD

Just in time for school break, the Emmy-winning Imagination Movers (Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott “Smitty” Smith) are releasing their brand-new CD/DVD “Licensed to Move.” It features twelve and a half tracks of the Movers’ trademark high-energy rock music plus a live concert video, several new music videos and appearances by the Movers’ furry feline friends Catnip and Catnap.

The lead single “Summer” is a celebration of warm-weather fun and an ode to early 2000s California pop punk. Other tracks include “Growing Up,” a Pete Seeger-esque story about a little kid who turns into a super-sized hero; and “Chicken Pot Pie,” the most hard-hitting funk rock song ever to be written about a savory casserole. There are also tunes about dump trucks, spacemen and three-legged dogs.

As always, the Movers prove they’re not afraid to tackle serious topics: the song “Snack Powder” is a 20-second rumination on the orange gunk (#crazydelicious) that gets on your fingers when you eat cheese puffs. And “Line Cutter” addresses the phenomenon of kids jumping ahead of other kids in line for the water fountain.

This is not just one of the Movers’ best albums; it’s “the best ever!,” according to a kid listening to the CD and eating a sandwich (although he may have been talking about the sandwich).

The Movers will be performing all across North America throughout 2015 to celebrate the new release. Check the concert calendar for more information. They are also currently developing a new animated series with 9 Story Media Group.

Get a copy now on iTunes, Amazon andimaginationmovers.com.

The Movers started in their New Orleans hometown by writing songs for their own kids. Then they filmed 75 episodes of their own TV series for Disney Junior. The show has been translated into dozens of languages and broadcast to more than 50 countries. The Movers have earned rave reviews from the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly and many others. They’ve appeared on “Good Morning America,” “The View” and “Live with Regis and Kelly.” They’ve also performed at the White House for two different presidents. They live at home in Louisiana with their various spouses, children and pets.
