Highlights

Film Maker Michael D Sellers, author of ‘John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood’ talks with Viarnne and Rich about one of the biggest bungles in Hollywood history – the failed launch of the film ‘John Carter’, based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic ‘The Princess of Mars’. This $250mil film should have been a block buster in the genre of Avatar – instead if fizzled with a hiss and a whimper due to lack of promotional support at the time of release. Why?

Edgar Rice Burroughs was the father of modern science fiction and for many dedicated fans this film is on the ‘must see’ list. Burroughs’ Tarzan was also the inspiration for many contemporary visionaries like Dr Jane Goodall and Hollywood film makers including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and James Cameron cite Burroughs as a major catalyst for their own creations… so why did this film that waited 100 years to be produced, fizzle in USA? Michael shares his views in this insightful interview.

SwitchOn Radio = Students With Initiatives To Create Humanitarian Outcomes Now!

The School Broadcasting Network (SBN) delivers unique in depth workshops for  both primary and secondary students (from years 4-11) to create their own ‘one off’ radio show for SwitchOn Radio to be broadcast and streamed live to the world.

If your school would like to create their own unique 1 hour program for SwitchOn Radio please contact Executive Producer, Viarnne Mischon – viarnne@sbnonline.org

 “We need our children to have a sense of what’s real and this program offers them the ability  to research and form opinions and then translate this across the airwaves and this, in my opinion,is one of the ‘real time’ exciting breakthroughs in education.”  Jon Pittard, Principal of The Peninsula School Junior Campus

Welcome to the debut SwitchOn Radio ‘Cultural Crew’ program produced by years 5 & 6 students (and their wonderful teachers) from River Gum Primary School.

From Zac, Matt and Taha – Cultural Crew 1:“SwitchOn Radio is such an awesome opportunity for students to create their own one hour radio show, and River Gum Primary is really excited to be bringing you the first ‘SwitchOn Radio’ show where we will be exploring our views on diversity. We will be talking about differences in our community, how we feel about people who are different to us in some way – and how diversity makes our Australia so great!

We will also look at changes that we have learnt about and how different thinking at different times in the past, helped our world become a better place… and most importantly we will talk about why we think diversity is exciting and fantastic since it’s a part of our everyday lives!  Basically, we want to send a positive message about diversity out there and CELEBRATE!”

Viarnne chats with Suzie Plakson about the birth of her long awaited, long gestated creation “The Return of King Lillian”

You can contribute to the launch of this unique ebook / audio book by jumping on Kickstarter before 10 May

This mythic tale is a newfangled narrative with an old-fashioned feel.
An allegorical story for non-conformists of all ages.

So, why the manly moniker in tandem with the womanly name?

“The Firstborn Child of The Emperor-King                                               

Inherits the Ruling Crown, the Title of Emperor-King                                   

and All Powers Thereof.” 

                                                   

~ Item 37, The Royal Manual

 

 

 

Enter Lillian, the firstborn child of said Emperor-King.

Cast out of her kingdom by malevolent forces,
mysteriously waylaid by Destiny,
the spirited, self-reliant Lillian sets off on an exuberant journey
to find her way home and claim her birthright.

As we speak, the book is finished – yahoo! – and in the process of being edited and polished.  And now we want to bring it to you in as fine a fashion as possible.

I feel so fortunate that such terrifically talented people are coming on board to create the most artful possible website: a gorgeous reading ride, and a downloadable, streaming audio experience.  Yes, this will also be an audiobook, recorded by me.  (Rumor has it I’m a professional actress.)

So, there’s art to commission, an entire book to record, studio costs, editing, and, oh – a whole smorgasbord of necessary technical etceteras that I can’t even begin to understand – all of which are essential to the creation of an elegant website.  We want to design a cool place to come relax and stay awhile. And the funding, of course, is what will make all of this possible.

The dream:  The book first blooms into this extraordinary website, which, if the winds are with us, eventually grows into a portal for a variety of related media, and, yes – an old-fashioned, beautifully crafted hardcover book of  “The Return of King Lillian.”

So, should you choose to favor us with your profoundly kind and generous support, you will, of course, have our everlasting gratitude.  Additionally, please peruse the variety of “thank you!” gifts presented along the right-hand side of this page.

Thank you for stopping by.
Thank you for listening and watching and reading.
Thank you for even thinking about being our patron saints.

Suzie
