You've seen him as Sir Gwaine in the BBC's TV series Merlin, now Eoin Macken steps behind the camera to direct The Inside, featuring Czech starlet Tereza Srbova (Sirens, Eastern Promises) alongside the cream of Irish acting talent that includes Emmett J. Scanlan (fan favourite Brendan Brady in Hollyoaks, Charlie Casanova), Sean Stewart (Occi, Coward), Natalia Kostrzewa (The Clinic) and Brian Fortune (Game of Thrones). While in a pawnshop a young man comes into possession of a second hand video camera; discovering a tape still inside he plays back the footage and witnesses a horrific series of events involving a group of teens in an undisclosed location. Using the footage as a guide he retraces the steps to where the events seemingly occurred. Deciding to investigate he discovers to his horror not only the truth of the events on the tape but comes face to face with a supernatural terror from which he may not escape... The Inside is a hard, violent, visceral psychological horror, which gets into your belly, and leaves an unnerving disturbed feeling after watching it. Shot mostly in alarming first person perspective this evocatively realistic story of five girls breaking into an abandoned warehouse for excitement - then finding themselves subject to a terrifying human attack before succumbing to a supernatural terror - will leave you shaking with fear! The film shows the worst side of humanity and contrasts it with the horror of the supernatural, which has no compunction between good and evil. But what is worse - the fear of the unknown, or the known fear of man? Shot and directed by Eoin C Macken, with additional cinematography by David Laird, and also featuring Eoin Macken, with sound by Greg French of Irish band The Brilliant Things and a chilling score from Kevin Whyms of Whymsonics, The Inside will re-invigorate the Irish horror genre.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Unseen, written and read by Reggie Yates. From Grange Hill to Top of the Pops, Reggie Yates has been on camera nearly all of his life, but it's as a documentary filmmaker - and a pretty fearless one at that - where he has truly been making his mark, investigating everything from gun crime in Chicago to life as a refugee in Iraq. In his first book, Unseen, Reggie takes us behind the scenes on his journey from TV host to documentary storyteller. Using some of the key moments and extreme circumstances he has found himself in, Reggie examines what he has learned about the world and about himself as a person. Beginning as a brief exploration of Reggie's relationship with the camera and life growing up on screen, Unseen explores the journey Reggie has taken in the documentary world. Initially resistant to documentary making, Reggie was convinced his point of view as a young black working-class man with a history in music, children's TV and entertainment would not make his films remotely credible. Through conflict and challenges onscreen, the understanding gained from the very thing once seen as a weakness would become his strength on camera, as the eye of the everyman and voice of the audience. Unseen unpicks the stories behind the fascinating characters and situations Reggie encounters across a series of films as well as chronicling the personal growth through each testing shoot for Yates himself. 1.

There's a secret world of investing controlled by angel investors and venture capital. One investment has been the secret of the wealthy for more than 80 years. It accounts for nearly a fifth of the wealth for million-dollar investors and nearly four times the return compared to stocks. Investing in startups has led to an average 27 percent return for wealthy investors, nearly four times the average 7.4 percent annual return on stocks over the decade to 2013. When asked where they invested their money, investors with an average of $7.6 million told BNP Wealth Management those alternative investments like venture capital and startups were their second-largest investment after their own business. Consider Peter Thiel's 2004 investment of $500,000 in Facebook as its first outside investor. By the time the rest of us could invest in Facebook, Thiel had already made $1.7 billion for a 340,000 percent return on his investment. Welcome to the world of startup investing and equity crowdfunding. I've spent nearly a decade analyzing startup investments for venture capital firms and angel investors. I set up the research department for one venture capital investor and managed a team of six analysts, poring over pitch material and market research to find the best startups in which to invest. Investing in startups is like nothing you've ever seen in the stock market. These companies aren't covered by analysts, and you won't find a P/E value on Yahoo Finance. You won't hear other venture capital investors or angel investors sharing their process or picks on TV either. They don't want you stealing those 27 percent annual returns. That's what this book is all about, using a process I have developed over years as a venture capital analyst to avoid the risks in startup investing and find the best deals. It's not an easy process. It involves research and strategic planning on your part. I'm ready to sha 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph Hogue.

Are you looking to get in better shape? Maybe you want to lose weight, build some muscle, and just look a little better. If you're like many people, you've probably tried various diets and fitness programs. You've seen some results here and there, but it seems like most fitness, weight loss, and muscle-building programs are hard to stick with. That's because most weight loss and fitness plans just don't work as advertised. Have you noticed that it always seems like some new exercise machine is being sold or maybe you've noticed the gyms popping up everywhere? There's no question, fitness has become big business, and it's all about the dollars now, not about you doing what's most effective and healthy for you. When you go online or watch TV, almost all you see are things like "new and improved" exercise machines, supplements, fitness programs, and gym advertisements. Unfortunately, almost nothing seems to be very effective. And even if you can get results, it's easy to quickly spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on getting in shape. Not to mention, many of the "fad" fitness programs and exercise equipment out there may be doing more harm than good. In fact, some of them could put you at risk of wasting your time or even injury. The solution is to simply get "back to the basics". And when I say "basics," I mean you can get in the best shape of your life without spending a dime on gym memberships fitness equipment, and personal trainers, using bodyweight training. If you haven't heard about bodyweight training before, you're about to discover how you can leverage your body to get in the best shape of your life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cinnamin Vroman.

Learn everything you need to know about Atlas Shrugged, quickly! This audiobook includes a discussion of the plot, characters, main themes, and political philosophy of Ayn Rand. In 2009, with the global economy hemorrhaging jobs and Western governments using hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money to "bail out" troubled financial firms and large companies, frustrated people and political analysts turned to a book written over 50 years earlier as a guide out of the abyss. Though Atlas Shrugged had been a popular title when Ayn Rand published it in 1957, it's quite possible that the only reference to it that many Americans heard before 2009 came from the hit TV series Mad Men. However, this staple of conservative and libertarian readers took on new life as the new Obama Administration sought to use government resources to fix financial problems. Conservative commentators like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh praised the book to their audiences, and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas labeled it one of his favorite novels. By January 2009, one article in The Wall Street Journal was titled, "Atlas Shrugged from Fiction to Fact in 52 Years". In that time, the giant novel that Rand considered her magnum opus has seen its sales spike dramatically, eventually reaching the top of Amazon's best sellers list. Even today, it is still within Kindle's top 500 titles, making it one of the most heavily read books of the last several years. Today, many have heard of the title and are partially familiar with it, but the sheer size of the book makes it inaccessible for people who don't have a lot of time to read or ponder Rand's philosophy. Thankfully, that problem is now solved with Everything You Need to Know About Atlas Shrugged, a primer that can get anyone caught up to speed on the plot, characters, themes, symbols, and philosophy of Rand's classic 1.

A dead star is headed for Earth...The shift in Earth’s orbit will unleash a new ice age...And this summer will be our last. The news breaks - Logan Willis’s life is falling apart: he lost his job and found out that his wife is cheating on him all in the same day. Thinking that his world has ended, Logan checks into a hotel and turns on the TV to see that he's not far wrong - radio telescopes have detected mysterious signals coming from inside our solar system, and the source is moving toward us at over 500 miles per second. The media concludes that these signals must be of an alien origin. Still reeling from the news, Logan gets a phone call from his brother-in-law. Richard is talking crazy about the end of the world again, but this time he doesn’t sound so crazy. A deadly conspiracy unravels - Meanwhile, Richard, who is an astronomer working with the James Webb Space Telescope, is at the White House briefing the president to announce what he and the government have known for almost a decade: aliens are not invading, a frozen ball of gas is. The so-called rogue star is predicted to make a near pass with Earth, disrupting our orbit and unleashing an ice age, the likes of which we haven’t seen for millions of years. We’re putting a colony on Mars - Government insider and billionaire Akron Massey has received a steady flow of funding over the past decade for his company, Starcast, to put a colony on Mars. Over the same period he’s been using his personal fortune to create a colony closer to home where he plans to ride out the coming storm along with a thousand of the smartest people on the planet. Humanity will need seeds to plant in the ashes after the chaos clears. And wars ignite - When the true nature of the threat becomes known, the nations of Earth prepare to fight over all the warmest parts of the planet. But as war fleets set sail and armies begin marching south, a stunning discovery is made that will chang 1. Language: English. Narrator: Flynn Earl Jones.

It’s a wolf-eats-duck world. But it’s a world in which little boys can find extraordinary courage and – with a little help from a crazy bird and a dreamy duck (and none whatsoever from a fat, lethargic cat and two hooligan hunters) - can catch the wolf. This much-loved tale has resonated deeply with over five generations of children, enchanted by its power and sense of fun. In this fantastical new version by prize-winning director Suzie Templeton, specially made to be screened theatrically in concert halls worldwide accompanied by live orchestras as well as to be seen internationally both on TV and DVD, is set to delight a whole new audience. BreakThru Films’ innovative animated film version of Prokofiev’s classic work, set to a new recording by the world-renowned Philharmonia Orchestra, was produced at the Oscar ®-winning Se-ma-for Studios in Poland using stop-frame model animation (the technique popularised by Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations) and state-of-the-art digital technology.
"The rise of Guerrilla Documentaries" evaluates the process of creating documentary films using the guerrilla doc method. It firstly seeks to define documentary through a review of it as a field of practice with its own literature. It charts the history of documentary practice, arguing that changes in technology and the marketplace have seen present-day documentary production determined, not only by technologies of production and distribution, but also by the aggregation of television markets and fragmentation of audiences. Secondly it contextualises documentary as a field of practice by examining the current production work of four contemporary, observational, guerrilla documentarians. It examines in detail their equipment, techniques and relationship with investors and broadcasters, and how the guerrilla doc aesthetic has allowed them greater production flexibility, intimacy with their subjects, and increased creative control over their work. The third section is a critical reflection on the author's own guerrilla documentary - "Family First - A Federal Crusade" which was produced for ABC-TV Australia.
