I remember hearing once, upon learning of the untimely death of ex-Beatle John Lennon,  that a distraught young man painfully said” John Lennon ‘ s  music kept me from killing myself”. I firmly believe in my heart that were it not for Theatre, cultured events, music, movies, plays, etc, that hundreds of millions of people would be hurling themselves from bridges, buildings and many such heightened structures, much like the financially bankrupt individuals did during  the collapse of the US monetary system called “The Great  Depression”, as they lacked the motivation and felt totally hopeless and decided they no longer desired to be alive. God put in this world, in my opinion, the talented artists, and actors, to help people survive, by paying a spiritual debt via their music, plays, and artistic endeavors,  that would otherwise run wantonly and shield people’s hearts, minds and souls from the beauty of life and also from humanity’s heart. One man’s art is another’s trash, and similarly each of us are fueled by family, lust, money, and power, just to name a few, but what happens when the body dies? The ability to use money, penetrate or be penetrated sexually or do anything which depends on physicality–unless a miracle happens–ceases to exist. Everything becomes as the rock mega super star band Kansas sung about in their 70’s hit, “Dust in the Wind”, when they said ‘close my eyes Only for a moment and the moment’s gone All my dreams Pass before my eyes with curiosity ,dust in the wind All we are is dust in the wind’—-basically dust and the life Similarly  scripture says in  King  James 4:  chapter 14‘ Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanishes away.’  Unlike, flesh and bones which blows away, dismantled and completely obliterated by the elements, destroyed by heat, wind , rain and worms, removing and wiping away all evidence of an existence, the arts ring true, like a bell ringing for life, love, family  and all that is worth living for, as it touches humanity’s heart, imprinting joy upon generations and writing a smile upon the souls of many spirits for thousands of years to come, long after its creator has been called back to its CREATOR. This is the schematic to the heart that Antonio Gellini, the entertainment icon and visionary, having lived in many countries, a diplomat’s progeny, an actor and linguistic impresario, having mastered fluency in over 5 languages,  has brought into fruition with the creation and maintenance for the last 29 years of The World Film Institute, and the Family Film Awards , which is soon to celebrate its 20th anniversary on August 2015. His  Family Film Awards”,  which will be promoted and executed by The World Film Institute,  has been awarding great actors since 1996, such as Sandra Bullock, and Tom Hanks, will be celebrated at  555 Universal Hollywood Drive, Universal City, CA, featuring The ARWEY AWARDS -Inspirational Women”—-on December 11, 2014, at The Hilton. Gellini said “that there are 7 dynamics of art which an artist or performer can use to demonstrate, or manifest  his or her craft and touch the world and they are, ‘ music, dance, film, theatre, painting, sculpture, and literature.  In my opinion, these 7 dynamics are “legal tender” in the art world as dollars, stocks, and Derivatives are to the monetary system in the world.

Written by

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
