Platinum Pias Nominees are Named

Things have been quite busy here at the Platinum Pias headquarters with the holidays and all, so we didn’t get around to formally announcing yesterday’s latest.

The big news is that the nominees of the 2017 Platinum Pias have been named.

Please check it out if you haven’t already. As you will see there are some new categories and the emphasis is on artists,

We’ve been receiving questions along the lines of “Why just artists?” The answer to this question is that it was a natural evolution of the Pias finding its “voice.” A lot of artists gravitated toward the Platinum Pias Awards shows, so to “go all artists” so to speak, was a natural step.

Platinum Pias Date is Set

platinum-pias-logoBreaking news from the 8th Annual Platinum Pias Community Awards Show for Artists front – the date has been set for the program! It is, Monday, March 20, 2017 at 6:30 pm at the Downtown Community Television Center at 87 Lafayette Street, New York, NY.

Yes, we are doing a second year at DCTV. The environment is very conducive to neighborhood gatherings and therefore appropriate for the Platinum Pias. The exciting thing about this ceremony is that it will focus on artists who are making a difference in their NYC and international communities.

For example, the much heralded “Thrillumentary” International Band have been nominated with its members collectively making music from their respective countries.

The performance will again be, as it was last year, at the 7th Annual Pias, a combination of video introductions with live readings of the winners.

Tickets will be available to subscribers of the NYC Make a Difference newsletter.

Art Gush Method of Digital Filmmaking

The Art Gush Method of Digital Filmmaking is alive and well. It looks like Lights Camera Read has hit another home run with this one.

Art Gush will have a presence at this year’s Platinum Pias Community Awards Show for Artists as will the mystery-thriller “Thrillumentary.” “Thrillumentary” is the feature film in development that is the learning tool which Art Gush uses to demonstrate steps to be taken to succeed as a filmmaker.

Art Gush is a new way to make motion pictures. It allows anyone with some knowledge of filmmaking or the arts (and who is good on a computer) to more easily produce full length film.

Lights Camera Read presents New Thrillumentary Video

The new “Thrillumentary” info video has been removed because it is now going to make its world premiere at the Platinum Pias Community Awards Show for Artists on March 20th, 2017 at DCTV in New York City.

But if you still want to hear music by the “Thrillumentary” International Band you might want to check out the new Lights Camera Read donations video. All the music in the video was created by the “Thrillumentary” International Band.

And of course if you are interested in getting tickets to the Platinum Pias, please sign up for the NYC Make a Difference newsletter. When the time comes, tickets will be available exclusively to newsletter subscribers.

He also disclosed that the group would be one of the nominees in the upcoming Platinum Pias Community Awards Show for Artists, in March, 2017.

The Thrillumentary International Band has been building a buzz because they, as an entity, have never all been in a room at the same time. This is because they collaborate remotely by the internet from all over the globe including Berlin, Bulgaria, England, Ireland, Oregon and New York City. They are making a difference in the international community because they symbolize a united world.
