BLINK OF AN EYE, FEATURE DOC PRODUCED AND DIRECTED BY MULTI-EMMY WINNING TEAM AT TAUBLIEB FILMS, SET TO DEBUT IN THEATERS ON SEPTEMBER 6, 2019

 A cinematic experience that transcends sports – the triumph-to-tragedy “odd couple” friendship between perennial Nascar underdog Michael Waltrip, and the sport’s icon, the late Dale “The Intimidator” Earnhardt

LOS ANGELES, August 7, 2019 / — The latest work of groundbreaking filmmaker and multi Emmy-winning Director, Producer and Writer, Paul Taublieb of TAUBLIEB Films, is the feature documentary Blink of an Eye. Set to debut on September, 5, 2019 for a one-week, Academy Award-qualifying run in New York, and on September 6 in Los Angeles, the film will then receive a nationwide theatrical release at over 700 theaters across the country starting September 12.

Produced and Directed by TAUBLIEB Films, with support from Monster Energy, and in association with NASCAR, and distribution by 1091 Media (formerly The Orchard), the cinematic documentary chronicles former professional NASCAR racer Michael Waltrip and his tragic, star-crossed friendship with the late NASCAR legend, Dale Earnhardt Sr. The film is inspired by Waltrip and Ellis Henican’s 2011 New York Times best-selling book, In the Blink of an Eye: Dale, Daytona, and the Day that Changed Everything (Machete Books).

Action and motorsports filmmaker Paul Taublieb has now brought the story to the big screen with his signature style of penetrating interviews that are interwoven with blistering energy.

Blink of an Eye highlights Waltrip’s win (after a record-breaking 462 losses in a row) at the 2001 Daytona 500, a victory made possible after Earnhardt broke character as “The Intimidator” and “Man in Black” to assist Waltrip, rather than go for the win himself. Ultimately it was kindness that cost Earnhardt his life, as he endured a last lap fatal crash that was originally perceived by onlookers as minor. When Waltrip returned to the track a few months after the accident determined to avenge his friend’s death by going for a win, he instead found a uniquely heroic and selfless way to pay back Earnhardt; one for believing in him when no one else did, and two, for allowing him to win after 16 frustrating seasons. 

Blink of an Eye features interviews with Michael Waltrip, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ty Norris (former President of Dale Earnhardt, Inc.), and NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty, Richard Childress, and Michael’s brother, Darrell Waltrip.

“When I heard the entire story of this odd couple but deep friendship and sacrifice between the great Dale Earnhardt and fun loving Michael Waltrip, I was reduced to tears,” explains Mitch Covington, Monster Energy’s VP of Sports Marketing. “I knew right away that the perfect person to make this into a feature documentary would be Paul Taublieb, who I recognize as one of the most creative documentary filmmakers working today.”

“Great stories are a gift, and this one has all the elements,” Paul Taublieb says. “Triumph, tragedy, the unexpected, and amazing characters. It’s a story that transcends sports, much like Free Solo (2018) or The Endless Summer (1966), bringing a human quality that anyone can relate and be engaged to, whether you are a sports fan or not. My film resonates with themes of perseverance, grit, determination and above all, the redemptive and transformation of friendship, even in tragedy.”

Mitch Covington’s confidence in Paul Taublieb was due to Taublieb’s wide-ranging previous work; Netflix’s Emmy-winning UNCHAINED: The Untold Story of Freestyle Motocross (2016), which Taublieb directed, wrote and produced, as well as the Emmy-winning ESPN 30 for 30 film, Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau (2013), which Taublieb produced and served as creative director and co-writer. 

“What drew me in as a director to this particular story were the universal themes inherit to it,” Paul Taublieb remarks. “The heroism of perseverance, the power of having someone believing in you when no one else does, and most importantly, the existence of truth where triumph and tragedy can intersect in the time span of, well, a blink of an eye!”

Check out the trailer for Blink of an Eye.

SNOB WORLD’S TRAVEL & LUXURY LIFESTYLE COUPLE, COLE MOSCATEL & KELSEA MOSCATEL, DONATE TO A CHARITY CLOSE TO HOME — LUPUS LA

The charitable power couple aspire to make a difference!

LOS ANGELES, August 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Cole Moscatel and his wife Kelsea Moscatel, creators of new luxury, lifestyle platform Snob World, recently donated a generous sum to Lupus LA, a non-profit health organization in Los Angeles dedicated to finding the causes of and a cure for lupus. The Moscatel’s donation(s) will help to aide in the funding for this long-winded battle, and bring more general awareness. 

Lupus hits close to home for the couple as Cole was diagnosed with the inflammatory disease six years ago at 15. Since then, he and his wife Kelsea have experienced first-hand the everyday struggles lupus brings. 

“It’s an illness that from the outside, many people won’t know someone is suffering from,” Cole Moscatel explains. “I may look like I’m always living an extravagant life, and although that is thankfully true on most days, I want people to understand that underneath all the glamour and adventure, there is indeed a struggle with this debilitation.”

“We want to make Snob World more than just a luxury lifestyle and consumerist brand,” Kelsea Moscatel declares. “When my husband and I saw Selena Gomez come clean about her lupus battle, it really put things into perspective how one can seem to have everything, but underneath all the fame and glory, there was something else lurking.”

Cole says, “We’re going to use our platform to promote positive change and awareness toward issues and organizations closest to our hearts.”

As Snob World grows, the couple will be contributing a portion of their earnings from merchandise, such as their upcoming luggage line, toward the fight in finding a cure for lupus. Additionally, they will be partaking in volunteer work located in underprivileged parts of the world, including Africa, Haiti, and Venezuela; making the act of giving back part of their travels.

Patrick Kilpatrick, Renowned Action Movie Star & Writer, to Celebrate Release of New Memoir at National Press Club and Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, October 3, 2018

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Patrick Kilpatrick‘s anticipated two-part memoir, DYING FOR LIVING – Sins & Confessions of a Hollywood Villain & Libertine Patriot (published by Boulevard Books), offers a searing and scandalous literate look behind the actor’s unconventional upbringing, political misadventures in journalism, a successful career as the entertainment industry’s go-to antagonist, and juicy unprecedented celebrity tales – all the while intricately weaving in brazen patriotism and unparalleled humor. 

With Volume 1 set for release on October 1, 2018, and Volume 2 later this year, Kilpatrick is hosting launch events in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, October 3, starting with a private press conference luncheon at the National Press Club (open to the media and invitees only), followed by an evening celebration and book signing at the Kennedy Center (open to both the media and public). Joining Kilpatrick for the festivities will be special guests: Sean Stone (actor/director/producer, Oliver Stone’s son), Scott Evans (host of NBC’s Access), and Bai Ling (actress).

“Although elegantly revealed, Dying For Living rips through social norms without regard to sensibility or political correctness,” explains Kilpatrick. “Plot lines – murderous bi-polar assaults by an adulterous mother, privileged education amidst pastoral splendor, and American Revolution patriotism. Also included, bi-racial affairs and incendiary politics… not to mention, a near fatal car accident, motorcycle crashes, and a global vision for 21st Century America”.

Having dominated the silver screen for three decades with appearances in more than 170 hit films and television programs as a lead actor, producer, screenwriter, director, ‘Movie Black Belt’ and entertainment teacher, Kilpatrick’s latest role of acclaimed author is an exhilarating progression for the action-industry titan. With a covertly assembled treasure trove of insider intel gleaned through this accomplished Hollywood resume, the genteel 6’2″ star deploys wicked insights to provocative use throughout these penetrating memoirs. 

“Almost universally, all great movies and books possess romance, eroticism, war in its many forms, redemption, laughter, pathos, death, tragedy and action,” Kilpatrick continues. “For those of you lusting, salivating, wishing and hoping for unvarnished, inglorious, and heroic behind-the-scenes elements of Hollywood, I boldly refer you to Dying For Living”.

A cinema hero with a heart, Kilpatrick will be donating a percentage of his book sales to the Disabled American Veterans, a 100-year-old organization devoted to servicing disabled warriors. 

The Kindle Edition of Volume 1 of DYING FOR LIVING – Sins & Confessions of a Hollywood Villain & Libertine Patriot, is available to purchase now on Amazon.

Enough is Enough Voter Project Launches Into Action to Take On Alleged Sexual Abusers Running for Office

New PAC plans to “put rape culture on the ballot across the country.”

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Enough is Enough Voter Project is a new political action committee that launches today, working in collaboration with Women’s March Sister Network, with the goal of making violence against women a voting issue. The Enough is Enough Voter Project will focus on candidates in this year’s election who have failed to stand with women on the issue of sexual harassment and  sexual violence. The Project is being led by the team that successfully recalled Judge Aaron Persky, who sentenced Stanford swimmer Brock Turner to just 6 months in county jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster at a fraternity party. 

“It’s time to end a culture that protects the careers of powerful men who abuse women or other survivors, and put this issue before the voters. We are going to put rape culture on the ballot across the country,” says Michele Dauber, who led the Recall Persky campaign and is the Chair of the Board of Enough is Enough Voter Project.

One such candidate is Tennessee State Representative David Byrd, a former high school basketball coach who was recently accused by three women of having sexually abused them when they were ages 15 and 16, while they played for the team he coached. Byrd has not denied the allegations and recently apologized to one of the players for his conduct. Despite bipartisan calls for him to resign, he refused and is currently running for re-election. 

“There are numerous politicians who have been accused of serious sexual misconduct or abuse,” according to Emiliana Guereca, Board Member of Enough is Enough Voter Project, and Founder & Executive Director of Women’s March Los Angeles. “It is unacceptable that these men face no meaningful consequences from law enforcement, the government or their political party. We are saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! We will vote them out!”

One innovative feature of the Enough is Enough effort is the Report a Candidatebutton on the group’s website, which provides a portal for individuals to share information and links about candidates in local communities who have a poor track record on #MeToo issues. Enough is Enough will look into the reported candidates as possible candidates for voter action.

Enough is Enough is working with pollster Celinda Lake, who has conducted polling on the subject of #MeToo. “Research shows that voters, especially women and younger voters, have very serious doubts about candidates with a history of sexual harassment or violence against women. Yet until now, there really hasn’t been any group that was dedicated to pushing this forward as a voting strategy. I think this is an organization that is filling an important need and that could make a real impact.”

Eleanor Smeal, the President of the Feminist Majority, also lauded the group’s efforts, saying that, “The nomination of someone who has been credibly accused of sexual assault to the Supreme Court, where, if he is confirmed, will rule on the fates and futures of women shows how important it is to ensure that sexual violence is treated seriously and that abusers are held accountable and do not hold public office.”

About Enough is Enough Voter Project

The #EnoughIsEnough Voter Project is focusing on candidates for public office who—in both public and private life—have turned against women on the issues of sexual harassment or violence against women and children. Some of these candidates are overtly misogynistic bullies. Others have been personally accused of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, domestic violence, and sexual abuse of teenage students by a teacher.

We’re saying “enough is enough” by standing up to bullies in Congress, in state legislatures, in the media, and at the ballot box. We conduct research, provide public information, and oppose politicians who have a poor track record on issues of violence against women and sexual assault. #EnoughisEnough Voter Project will hold politicians accountable and ensure violence against women is part of the national conversation this November and in future elections.
