    A Video Diary from Iraq (2009)
    Film (Documentary) Producer Ralphie May was the first entertainer the President asked to travel into Iraq to perform for the US and Allied Troops.

  • FireHouse TV

    FireHouse TV (2004)
    Television (Action and Reality-TV) Producer Firehouse TV is the first reality show of its kind; a compelling behind the scenes look at the lives of firefighters. Most of us see firefighters on the 11 o'clock news, usually faceless behind heavy protective gear and helmets. They are the quiet heroes, and their lives are often fascinating and inspirational. Ryan Sutter, probably the country's most recognizable firefighter due to his winning the hit reality TV show "The Bachlorette", and also for his spokesperson work with the Firefighter's National Trust hosts each episode. Ryan is one of those amazing people who is movie-star good looking, is smart (he's an architecture major), is an accomplished painter and writer, and even did a stint in the NFL. But ask Ryan who he is, he'll quickly say, "I am a fireman". The bond of firefighters is not easily broken. You never stop being a firefighter. Firehouse TV is more than just an Emergency-Call program. Unlike "Cops", where cameras only document the gritty detail of anonymous cops ... Written by Bloom, Michael A

    This Is Elvis (1981)
    Film (Biography and Music) Producer Though several actors portray Elvis Presley at different stages of his life, this documentary is comprised mostly of actual performance footage and interviews with Elvis, his fans and those close to him. His arrival on the national scene ,in 1956, is highlighted by clips from "Stage Show", "The Milton Berle Show" and "The Ed Sullivan Show". Scenes from several of his 33 films are highlighted including his screen debut in "Love Me Tender" (1956) and the critically acclaimed "King "Creole"(1958), his last film prior to a 2 year hitch in the military.
