Kids Wish Network Grants Disney World Wish to Ohio Girl

Kids Wish Network "Where Dreams Really Do Come True"

Kids Wish Network “Where Dreams Really Do Come True”

International children’s charity Kids Wish Network recognized its partners for their help to send Ridgeville teenager Haley, who suffers from Lung Disease, Down Syndrome and Tracheomalacia, on an all-expenses paid vacation to fulfill her childhood dream. Kids Wish Network is a Florida-based organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations.

“Every day, we work to ensure that children facing life-altering experiences are given the opportunity to smile a little brighter. With help from our generous donors, we are making a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of children every year,” said Anna Lanzatella, Executive Director of the Kids Wish Network.

Haley has Down syndrome and, at age 2, was diagnosed with lung disease. She has been hospitalized 12 times and suffered 15 bouts of pneumonia since her diagnosis. Congenital heart disease has caused 3 holes to form in her heart and despite attempts to repair the holes she will require future surgeries.

Haley asked Kid Wish Network to grant her wish to visit the many theme parks of Orlando, Florida. To bring Haley’s dream to life, Kids Wish Network arranged an all-expenses paid trip for the family to enjoy VIP treatment while visiting Universal Studios, Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom.

“I’ve never seen Haley smile the way she did when she met Buzz Lightyear, she was so happy and excited to show him all of her toys!” said Haley’s mother, Melissa Steinforth. “We had a wonderful experience and are so grateful to Kids Wish Network.”

Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following for making Haley’s wish so spectacular: Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie #213, VFW #1445, Kellex Corp, Compassion Partners, Orange Lake Resort, Pirate’s Dinner Theater, Cracker Barrel, Carrabba’s, Wonderworks, and Dollar Rent A Car.

For more information on Haley’s wish and Kids Wish Network, visit www.kidswishnetwork.org or www.facebook.com/kidswishnetwork.

Every child deserves a chance at happiness; a wish is a way of bringing them that joy. If you would like to sponsor a child’s wish or if you know a child who is suffering from a life-threatening illness and may be in need of Kids Wish Network’s wish granting services, please call 727-937-3600 or toll free 888-918-9004.

Hi Ho Silver Away! The Lone Ranger Rides onto Blu-Ray Combo Pack December 17, 2013!

The Lone Ranger arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD and On-Demand December 17th!

The Lone Ranger arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD and On-Demand December 17th!

For many, the old west is a place of fun high riding cowboy fun. And The Lone Ranger does just that. When we here at DizRadio.com went and saw this film, it was full of action, story, and great character acting. The Lone Ranger is a timeless tale that was explored in only a style Disney can bring to life. From perfect performances from Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, to the score itself (might I add I was fully excited the overture was included in the score), the film looks visually wonderful.

And the Blu-Ray is full of features that will not leave you dry in the desert! From ‘Becoming a Cowboy’ to ‘Riding the Rails’ they plan to deliver in depth fun that packs a punch only silver bullets can break through!

The Lone Ranger arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD and On-Demand December 17th! Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in the film with bonus features including “Riding The Rails Of The Lone Ranger,” “Becoming A Cowboy” and much more.

Time is Ticking, the Tension is High, and the Ultimate Showdown Between Good and Evil is About to Explode

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in The Lone Ranger, from Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Director Gore Verbinski. It’s a wild ride of high velocity action, explosions and gunfights that brings the famed masked legend to life through brand-new eyes. The Lone Ranger (Hammer), the last of his kind, teams with Tonto (Depp), a dark and mysterious vigilante, to seek vengeance after justice has failed them. It’s a runaway train of epic surprises, as these two unlikely heroes must learn to work together before the ultimate showdown between good and evil explodes.

Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Alice in Wonderland) as Tonto, Armie Hammer (The Social Network, Mirror Mirror) as John Reid/Lone Ranger, Helena Bonham Carter (Fight Club, The Kings Speech) as Red Harrington, Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins, Michael Clayton) as Latham Cole, Ruth Wilson (Anna Karenina, Capturing Mary) as Rebecca Reid, William Fichtner (Black Hawk Down, The Dark Knight) as Butch Cavendish

The announcement was made today by Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive producer of the Hollywood Film Awards.

He said: “John Knoll’s groundbreaking work on ‘Pacific Rim’ sets a new standard in visual effects. The robots and monsters in the film truly come to life through the best visual effects of the year. Once again, the animation and storytelling of ‘Monsters University’ reflects Pixar creativity and greatness.”

The award will be bestowed at the Hollywood Film Awards Gala Ceremony on Monday evening, October 21, 2013 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

About Dan Scalon
Dan Scanlon made his animated feature directorial debut with Disney/Pixar’s 14th feature film, “Monsters University,” which has grossed over $700 million dollars worldwide since its June 2013 release. He also co-wrote the film’s story and screenplay. As a youngster in Clawson, Michigan, Scanlon possessed a love for Warner Bros. cartoons, animated Disney films and, as fate would have it, Pixar short films. His passion inspired him to study film and animation in high school and in college where he focused on illustration at Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD). Upon graduating from CCAD, Scanlon began working as an animator and story artist for Character Builders, a 2D animation company that produced feature and commercial work in Columbus, Ohio. Scanlon joined Pixar Animation Studios in September 2001 as a storyboard artist on  Disney/Pixar’s award-winning features “Cars” and “Toy Story 3.” During the initial production stages for both films, he worked to translate the director’s story ideas into the film’s first visual format: storyboards.

With John Lasseter, Scanlon also co-directed the original short film “Mater and the Ghostlight,” which is included as one of the bonus features on the “Cars” DVD.  In addition to his work at Pixar, Scanlon simultaneously wrote and directed the live action film “Tracy,” released in 2009.

About John Knoll
John Knoll is Chief Creative Officer and Senior Visual Effects Supervisor at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). Over the course of his career, Knoll has been honored with three Academy Award nominations for his work on “Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones,” “Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace,” which earned him a BAFTA nomination, and “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” in which he was also honored with a BAFTA nomination. Knoll’s resume also includes “Mission to Mars,” “Deep Blue Sea,” “Star Trek: First Contact” and “Mission: Impossible” among others. In 2006 Knoll completed work on “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” for which he received both a BAFTA and an Academy Award(r). Most recently Knoll worked as Visual Effects Supervisor on Guillermo del Toro’s science fiction epic “Pacific Rim”.

SAVE the 368 Last Drive-Ins: Film Critic Leonard Maltin to Host First Ever Twitter Vine Auction in Support of Honda’s Project Drive-In

Film Critic Leonard Maltin to Host First Ever Twitter Vine Auction in Support of Honda's Project Drive-In.

Film Critic Leonard Maltin to Host First Ever Twitter Vine Auction in Support of Honda’s Project Drive-In.

In less than three months, many of the 368 remaining drive-ins across the U.S. will go dark forever if they cannot afford to convert to digital projection, estimated at $75,000+ per screen. In support of Project Drive-In, Honda’s national effort to save as many drive-ins as possible, the automaker is hosting a one-day live Twitter Vine auction on Thurs., Sept. 12, starring renowned film critic Leonard Maltin as auctioneer. Proceeds will go directly to Project Drive-In: Save the Drive-In Fund.

How to Get Involved: Project Drive-In’s Twitter Vine Auction
Starting at 10 a.m. PT, a Vine video will post on the @Honda Twitter account showcasing at least eight items available for auction. Each item will be opened up to bidding when that item-specific Vine video is tweeted out with information detailing the minimum bid price and auction closing time. To participate in the auction, bidders will tweet the title of the item, bid price and hash tag #DriveInAuction. The highest bid at the close of the auction wins. @Honda will tweet the winning bidder who will then be directed via @Honda direct message to a payment page on the Project Drive-In fundraising Web page. The auction will conclude at 2 p.m. PT.

Auction items include:

  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 plush toys, autographed poster, concept artwork and Hollywood VIP package featuring tickets to the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 premiere and tour of the Sony Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation studio lots
  • Four Disneyland park hopper tickets and four Aquarium of the Pacific tickets
  • Basketball and license plate signed by Maroon 5, headlining the 2013 Honda Civic Tour
  • Private suite experience at Paramore concert (headlined 2010 Honda Civic Tour) at Honda Center on Oct. 19, includes tickets and catering for 16 people

In addition, a Honda-donated 2014 Odyssey Touring Elite® is available on the Project Drive-In fundraising Web page for $50,000 and will be promoted during the auction. The donation will not only award the winning bidder with the brand new Odyssey minivan, but also help fund an additional digital projector and save another drive-in from closing.

Project Drive-In launched on Aug. 9 by Honda to raise community awareness of the plight of drive-ins, award digital projectors to five drive-ins as determined by public voting (closed Sept. 9) and to provide simple ways for people to get involved in an effort to ensure that this historic part of American cinema and car culture lives on.

The five winning theaters will be revealed in mid-September, and each will host a celebration that includes a special screening of Sony Pictures Animation’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, in theaters everywhere on September 27.

“Project Drive-In has sparked so many heartwarming stories and dedicated communities determined to save their drive-in culture that Honda feels compelled to do even more,” said Alicia Jones, Manager of Honda & Acura Social Marketing at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

“We want to help people keep their drive-ins open, so we have launched this auction utilizing Vine and Twitter to help get more people involved by leveraging a medium where people are already talking about #SaveTheDriveIn.”
