    Justin Thomson, Moscow Misfits, Filming at -50 Centigrade or 35,000 Ft in the Clouds

    OWC RADiO Host, Cirina Catania, throws back some fun memories and catches up with the news from Justin Thomson, an experienced filmmaker/producer and co-founder, Moscow Misfits. Justin's in demand worldwide for his boundless creativity and extensive knowledge of the world of movies and immersive entertainment. Whether it be on a Lufthansa flight 35,000 ft in the clouds, for the Waldorf Project at Wonder Fruit deep in the jungles of Thailand, or with his director co-conspirator, Rory McKeller, in the icy White River in Russia, Justin's there to solve any problem however large or small. And he'll do it with a smile.







    Justin creates events that break boundaries and push people's limits of what is possible, driving deeper human connection and expanding participants' beliefs of what is possible. Justin says, "If you have ever seen the film, The Game starring Michael Douglas, you'll get what we are about." 







    There is never a dull moment around the Misfits, thanks in great part to Justin's belief in saying "Yes" to more in life.

    Orlando Luna, Andy Stein & the Orphaned Starfish Foundation

    Orlando Luna, Andy Stein & the Orphaned Starfish Foundation

    In this episode of OWC RADiO, host Cirina Catania, talks with Orlando Luna (Producer/Benefactor) and Andy Stein (Founder and Executive Chairman) of the Orphaned Starfish Foundation, as they unveil the behind-the-scenes stories of how this organization came about and how OSF is now teaching technology, creativity and story-telling using mobile hardware and software.







    OSF was founded in 2001 to help orphans, victims of abuse, survivors of trafficking, indigenous populations, refugees and at-risk youth worldwide escape their cycles of poverty and abuse through education and job training.







    As of this broadcast, over 15,000 children in countries around the world have seen their lives changed as mentors from the organization arrive to empower their inner creativity. By taking away the thought that filmmaking is "hard," and giving them simple but powerful tools, all the team has to do is train them and give them the inspiration to create! The results are surprising.







    In a new association with Mobile Phone Studio and WeMakeMovies, The Orphaned Starfish Foundation’s emerging tech-arts program is reaching out even further to enable children to tell their stories through film. Yes, it is about gear, but it is even more about freedom of expression and a safe field in which to run.







    The work is as powerful as it is important.







    We are proud that Other World Computing sponsors our show. Please visit their website and give them some love!
