Live and Breathe the Film Industry: Israeli’s Star Artist Eva Lanska’s take on the Film Industry and NFT Spaces

The NFT space is a haven for art lovers and artists all over the world. Our recent conversation with the Israeli star Eva Lanska provides an intimate understanding of her experience in the NFT space and the film industry. Being an Israeli film director and artist,  she sells and promotes her work in the NFT space while also working as a film director in her Tel Aviv studio. Eva claims that film direction and art have been her passions since the age of seven, but it has taken her twenty years to realize her dream. She discusses her struggles as a female director and artist, highlighting the challenges she has faced in the industry. “Art, film, this is what we choose, these are our lives, one day the door will open and we will become who we want to be, and we will take our place,” she encourages women in the industry. Eva reveals that she does not come from an influential family of Hollywood personalities and as such, she has had to work her way into the Hollywood family.

The story behind the exceptional woman reveals the reality in Hollywood. “If you do not come from a famous Hollywood family, you have to work extra hard to get noticed in the industry…because the Hollywood inner circle is a very small, closely knit family,” Eva states. “Before getting noticed, one has to live and breathe Hollywood,” she confesses. We all admire the stunning Israeli artist for navigating the difficult path into Hollywood’s inner circle. “Talent is simply not enough, knowledge is not enough; you must become one with the community,” Eva says, possibly the most candid advice she has for people trying to make it in the entertainment industry.

The conversation quickly shifts to the NFT space and what it means to artists around the world. Eva describes the NFT space as a platform that offers artists the freedom of expression. At first, she finds it intimidating, particularly as a woman new to the platform. It becomes even more intimidating for her when she meets award-winning scholars, but she overcomes her fears and eventually establishes a reputable name in the industry. Eva also expresses her dissatisfaction with the platform’s marginalization of women, claiming that their projects often take longer to be approved or funded. “We can only go forward, never look back, and we are gonna go till we achieve,” she encourages women in the industry. “Stopping, giving up is not an option,” she adds, “we have to keep going and moving forward.”

Miami Art Week is a celebration and appreciation of the world’s best art collections, it is no surprise that Eva Lanska’s collection is featured. The NFT exhibition will display some of Eva’s large-scale sculptures and paintings, along with Michael Benisty, WhIsBe, Noah Becker, Lauren Baker, Maxim Zhestkov, and more, at the Bagatelle Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Photographic works from Lanska’s Gematria collection and The Existential Choice are featured exclusively at the NFT event. For the opening event, Eva collaborated with SmartMedia to produce a special limited edition (1000) NFT from her Gematria series called Gematria 596. She proudly describes this piece as a symbol of purity. Eva’s art is celebrated for the messages it conveys, she has previously used art to address gender equality and societal injustices. This event serves as a reminder of the powerful woman Eva Lanska is and how her art will leave a lasting impression on the world.

Tel K. Ganesan

Founder and Chairman of Kyyba


Tel K. Ganesan moved to the United States with bright dreams. After being able to earn an engineering degree in India, a change of environment was a challenge, but Tel overcame all those adversities to finish his postgraduate degree as he began his path to success.

His attitude has never allowed him to give up on what has made him Tel K. Ganesan, mentor, philanthropist, and businessman. “If you want an opportunity to knock, it’s time to build a door,” Ganesan says.

Ganesan grew up under the strong influence of his mother’s pursuit of the American Dream. Eventually, Automotive Engineering brought Ganesan to the United States, specifically the city of Detroit, where he pursued a master’s at age 21. He has lived in Detroit for 30 years and has never wanted to leave since he came. He chose this place as his home and to contribute his grain of sand in the city, he is rebuilding everything that has to do with the business landscape with Kyyba Inc., consisting of Kyyba Innovations, Kyyba Wellness, Kyyba Music, Kyyba film, and Kyyba Kidz.

Tel K. Ganesan is the CEO of Kyyba Innovations and President of Kyyba Inc., Engineering Services and Software Products. The Kyyba brand has expanded into film productions through his company Kyyba Films. According to Ganesan: “I started as an ID entrepreneur and then diversified into other areas lately into films, music, Fashions, and wellness so that’s what I’ve been doing so far.’’

Tel K. Ganesan has always believed in doing what the heart says. With the founding of Kyyba Kidz, he has pursued his dreams of making the world a better place by helping the most disadvantaged children. Ganesan has always been grateful for the education and healthcare he received growing up. “A lot of major tech companies are run by people of Indian origin,” Ganesan emphasizes, “the root cause goes back to the societal conditioning of putting education in the mindset of people.” Through educational programs, the foundation seeks to bring trust, honesty, growth, and confidence to every child in need. The main goal of Kyyba Kidz is “to increase the cognitive and psychological awareness of young people to help them achieve great achievements in life by choosing the right career” explains Ganesan on his website.

Ganesan is a testament to faith in his American dream and entrepreneurial spirit. As stated by Tel, “you have only one life. At this point in life, I’m doing something for my spirit which is really getting into this creative space.’’ With perseverance and hard work, he has taken his career from businessman to film producer. “Whatever I learn in one business I apply to another business in another industry and keep it going so I know.’’ Tel Ganesan admits.

Kyyba Films in association with Nasik Rav Media releases “Trap City” starring Brandon T Jackson and actor and GV music composer Prakash. WATCH TRAILERS HERE. As a film producer, Tel Ganesan has an exciting project ahead of him. “I learned about trap culture… And that anyone can be in a trap because of the environment, society, economics, and sometimes even psychological conditions,” he recalls, “and I took this as an inspirational and spiritual awakening of understanding what’s really happening.” “I want to send an inspiring message on how to get out of the Trap through this movie,’’ Ganesan clarifies.

Ganesan is thrilled about the upcoming release of “Trap City” around the first quarter of 2023: “I’m gonna graduate from this one (Trap City)…this is like cutting my teeth into the film business.” Some of Ganesan’s projects after the release of the movie “Trap City” are working in the world of the metaverse and seeking collaborations with other companies with much larger budgets.

Call him a film producer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, innovator, guide, or speaker; Tel K. Ganesan really is an all-rounder. Today, his dreams are a reality. Like any other successful human being, he has pursued ambition with a never-give-up attitude: “Successful people do what unsuccessful people aren’t willing to do. I don’t wish it was easier; I wish you were better.”

Gucci Exquisite campaign inside 360 MAGAZINE

Exquisite GUCCI

As first presented in the hall of magic mirrors during Milan fashion week, the Exquisite Gucci collection was designed by the House’s Creative Director, Alessandro Michele for Fall-Winter 2022. The emphasis on tailoring was the show’s organizing theme, but the headline was Michele’s collaboration with adidas. Merging sartorial tradition and sportswear codes, he added the brand’s trademark stripes and emblem to suits and an array of ready-to-wear.

A Note From Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele

I’ve always been charmed by cinema. For its power to tell stories that can probe human adventure and its drift. For its visionary power to dig up in the real, making it vertiginously imaginative and questionable. Such a careful look on the human, after all, is so close to me. I could never imagine clothes as severed from the story and life of the person wearing them. If you ask me, a garment is not, and never will be, just a piece of fabric. It’s rather the means through which we are able to unfold who we really decide to be, it’s how we shape our desires and the ultimate sense of our staying. That’s why I’ve always imagined my collections as films able to convey a cinematography of the present: a score of stories, eclectic and dissonant, that can sacralize the human and its metamorphic ability.

The “Exquisite” campaign is my tribute to cinema and to one of its brightest maestros, Stanley Kubrick. A philosophic filmmaker who, better than others, emanated the magic of that inextricable knot through which cinema exudes life and magnifies it. I’ve always admired Kubrick’s remarkable capacity in tackling very different subjects. His experimental drive goes beyond any possible categorization. Every film, in fact, digests the manifold souls where dystopia meets parody, drama becomes human comedy, horror looks like a psycho-philosophic treatise, the feeling of truth evolves into the uncanny. Kubrick was, in essence, a real sculptor of genres: the “cross-genre” director, ahead of his time. His ability to build stories that exceed significance, crossing borders and setting labels on fire, has always been deeply inspiring to me.

As an act of love, I decided to reinhabit Kubrick’s films, pushing to the core this incendiary approach. I took the liberty of disassembling, blending, grafting and reassembling them. Sticking to my creative praxis, I seized those movies, romanticizing them, populating them with my clothes. Trying to create short circuits where the adidas gown, that had already lost its status of sportswear to become a Victorian costume, appears as a new character in the script of Barry Lyndon. The dress designed by Laura Whitcomb, wearing which Madonna grabbed the New York spotlight in the nineties, fits in the gothic scenes of The Shining. The mysterious darkness of the enigmatic ritual of Eyes Wide Shut embraces a venus in fur, embellished with sensual bourgeois pearls. And more, the 90s shoes with a fetish flavor explode through the frames of A Clockwork Orange. Finally, the dreamiest evening dress dangled in soft tulle ruches bursts into the aseptic and dystopian space of the Discovery One in 2001: A Space Odyssey. This situationist game mixes historical plans, references, experiences. The past explodes into the present. Everything can become anything, or something else. As in that famous scene of Kubrick’s masterpiece, where the bone turns into a spaceship. As in life.

With “Exquisite” I carry on my attempt to mingle high and low, this time coherently and synergistically with the grammar of the great director. In the selected sequences it feels like Nietzsche, Kant and Freud speak casually to the people in the street. The biggest questions about the meaning of life become pop images. Complex transfigurations in terms of significance, get immediate access in terms of experience. Everything comes to be iconic, symbolically sophisticated, though able to reflect on a culture that we can definitely identify as pop. I chose Kubrick also for this, after all. What he created is part of our collective imagination. Since he was a diviner of vision, his works are as recognizable as the Sistine Chapel, the Virgin of the Rocks or The Simpsons. Manipulating his images, inside a brand new semantic framework, is like hacking La Gioconda. Plus the inspiration and the empathy only possible through the fictional cinematographic machine.

This involvement generates a change of state that is very significant for my job: clothes get closer to bare life again. They turn into highly imaginative functional prostheses, and they do so to tell a story. A story that shatters, enchants, tortures, ignites. Because it’s the story of the human that dwells in each and every one of us. As Stanley Kubrick knew too well. And also Milena Canonero, a very dear friend of mine, who accepted my invitation to go back over some of the scenes that hailed her as an undisputed star in the history of costume design. Her presence in this project is moving for me, a very precious gift.

Marvel's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever via 360 MAGAZINE.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By soundtrack, produced by Ryan Coogler, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis and Dave Jordan is set for release on Nov. 4 from Roc Nation Records/Def Jam Recordings/Hollywood Records. The soundtrack is available for Pre-Save/Pre-Add/pre-order here. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore, opens in U.S. theaters Nov. 11, 2022.

Rihanna’s lead single “Lift Me Up” makes history this week as it becomes the most-added song in U.S. radio history, amassing the most ever single day spins and the largest ever single day audience.

The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By soundtrack features over 40 international artists recorded in Lagos, Nigeria, Mexico City, London and Los Angeles. Featured artists include Rihanna, Tems, Fireboy DML, OG DAYV Ft. Future, CKay Ft. PinkPantheress, E-40 and many more.

Ludwig Göransson, who has two Emmys®, two Grammys® and an Oscar® to his credit, composed and produced both the score and the original songs on the soundtrack. His extensive work producing artists (Childish Gambino, Adele, Haim, Justin Timberlake) as well as his work scoring films and TV series (Black Panther, Creed, The Mandalorian) made him uniquely qualified to helm both parts of the soundscape. 

For their fourth cinematic collaboration, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Coogler and Göransson set out to create an innovative soundscape where Göransson says, “The songs and score are one.” The two artists have talked about this approach since their days attending USC Film School, and finally made it a reality with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

In what became a massive labor of love, Göransson spent over 2500 hours recording the score and soundtrack – which involved six studios, across three continents and five countries. Over the course of the film, the audience will hear over 250 musicians, two orchestras, two choirs and over 40 vocalists. 

Coogler was intimately involved in the creation of the music for the film, from co-writing lyrics on the Rihanna track “Lift Me Up” to suggesting the cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” performed by Nigerian singer/songwriter Tems and bridged together with Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” for the film’s instantly viral trailer.

Göransson said, “Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice. If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be the entire song, and to be connected to the story. Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from grief to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the movie. That was the intention.”

Given the story is inspired by both Nigerian and Mesoamerican cultures, recording sessions were set up in both Lagos, Nigeria, and Mexico City, Mexico, as well as Abbey Road Studios in London. Producers worked with popular artists from Lagos including Tems, which has become a hotbed of musical innovation. In addition, emerging rappers and artists from Mexico City are featured on the soundtrack including rapper Pat Boy, who raps entirely in Mayan. 

While in Mexico City, Göransson worked closely with music archeologist Alejandro Rojas to explore and research Mayan music. Instruments native to both Nigerian and Mesoamerican cultures were featured in the creation of the soundscape.

Dallas Jackson – “The System”

Writer/Director Dallas Jackson’s High-Octane Action Thriller 

“The System” Starring Tyrese Gibson, Terrence Howard, 

Jeremy Piven & Lil Yachty Set for Nationwide Release in Select Theaters on Oct. 28; Digital and On-Demand on Nov. 4

With an enviable slate of film and television projects in various stages of release, production or development, rising Hollywood filmmaker Dallas Jackson has a name currently ringing out in the best way among entertainment industry power circles. Jackson’s new action thriller “The System” starring Tyrese Gibson, Terrence Howard, Jeremy Piven, and Lil Yachty is set for a nationwide theatrical release on October 28; He’s in development on “Creature House,” Jackson’s new horror feature film in collaboration with Kevin Grevioux, 50 Cent and G Unit productions which was recently announced by Deadline; and his 2020 action feature “Welcome to Sudden Death” starring Michael Jai White is still in heavy rotation on Netflix, where it ranked among the top 10 movies on the platform for weeks following its release. 

Jackson, a proud Howard University alumni (one of the nation’s leading HBCUs), is being honored with a Bison Honors Award at his alma mater’s Homecoming on Saturday, Oct. 22. A special screening of his newest film, “The System” will be shown during Homecoming week in Washington DC on Thursday, Oct. 20.

As President of production company DJ Classicz, Jackson creates content focusing on edgy, young adult driven film and television projects for international audiences. The multi-hyphenate writer/director/producer considers it his mission to entertain the world by creating content for multicultural audiences that embeds a redemptive message at its core or shines a light on societal issues. In The System, he takes on the corruption inside the privatized prison system, which many social justice advocates describe as ‘modern day slavery’ and disproportionately affects people of color.  

“I try to start off my movies with a bang so you’re ‘in’ from the beginning and can stay with it,” said Jackson. “What gets me up in the morning is the chance to impact the culture by increasing content, movies and tv projects that serve as enjoyable entertainment wrapped in a message. We can shine a light on topics that are important to us, but in a digestible format for audiences.”

Jackson served as Executive Producer, alongside iconic director John Singleton for 10 episodes of the limited series crime-drama “REBEL” on BET/Viacom Networks. His other credits include serving as writer and director on Blumhouse feature film “Thriller” starring Mykelti Williamson (Fences), and rapper-actor RZA, which made its world premiere at the 2018 Los Angeles Film Festival. He co-wrote “Straight Out of Heaven” with iconic director Singleton for WBTV, and served as screenwriter on the urban-family series “Uncle P” starring Lil’ Romeo Miller and Cheech Marin for Nickelodeon.
The Denver native, who was a latchkey kid riding the bus at age 10 to rent movies from his favorite genres, recalls the rich relationships that have informed, supported and fueled his career forward. They include Singleton, his esteemed mentor, and RZA, who he has collaborated with on several projects since he began in the business.  
“I got a master class by shadowing John Singleton and watching him work,” said Jackson. “He taught me how to pay attention to other directors on the show. I got a notebook and took copious notes – how to block a scene; how to tweak a script on-the-spot during a table read; how to identify a problem and quickly solve it during the production. John said, ‘know your story and know it better than anyone else. That way no one can tell you what to make and how to make it.’ He was a complete professor to me in giving me instructions. He believed in me enough to endorse me, which had a major impact on my career trajectory.”  

When asked about the power of aligning with executives and talent who hail from historically black colleges & universities, Jackson said, “What we can accomplish individually and collectively is insurmountable. We’re not all the same. At HBCUs, learning about the African diaspora, different parts of the world and the country gives you a confidence about ‘self’ that is powerful, as well as peers that you can call on for employment, to look out for our children and network connections. It’s allowed me to transport myself into Hollywood with these skill sets in my back pocket. We are a magnet for culture, which gives us a unique advantage and a ‘super power’.”

Up next is “Twenty Four Seven,” another collaboration with 50 Cent and his G Unit Productions for CBS Television on which Jackson serves as both screenwriter and an Executive Producer.

Based on the book by Derrick Parker and Matt Diehl, the story centers on Parker, who worked on some of the biggest criminal cases in rap history, from the shooting at Club New York to the first shooting of Tupac Shakur.

Regarding his brand, vision, journey and voice, Jackson said, “The grand vision is to entertain. I grew up on movies, knowing TV guides back and forth. I was a “nerdy” kid who rented 3 movies at a time. You’ll see there’s always a message in everything I do. Subtle or not, I wrap a lasting message inside the project. I’d like to leave the world a better place by my work, and encourage Black youth to never give up; show them that they can actualize their dreams.”

ABOUT “THE SYSTEM”

Retired marine Terry Savage (Tyrese Gibson) would do anything to save his daughter, including robbing drug houses to pay for her medical treatment. When Savage gets caught, he’s offered a chance at redemption by the local police commissioner to get his daughter the care she needs in exchange for infiltrating a private prison and exposing the corruption that’s headed by a sadistic warden Lucas Fisher (Jeremy Piven). 

On his first night there, Savage is attacked by one of the prison gangs but saved by another inmate, Bones (Terrence Howard). An OG of the prison, he decides to teach Savage some unique, martial arts skills. When the warden recruits Savage for The Dungeon, his vicious, underground fight ring hosted by a deranged inmate, Joker (Lil Yachty), Savage must fight for his life against ruthless and bloodthirsty inmates. With help from Bones, Savage must capture incriminating evidence while trying to stay alive and get back to his daughter. Filmmaker Dallas Jackson writes and directs this explosive, action-packed thriller, which takes on corruption in America’s prison-for-profit privatized correctional system. The System will be released by The Avenue in select theaters nationwide on October 28, and available via digital and on-demand on November 4. 

ABOUT WRITER/DIRECTOR DALLAS JACKSON

One to watch, filmmaker Dallas Jackson is holding court for entertainment buffs who enjoy action, horror and thriller films. The multi-hyphenate writer, director and producer is also a Howard University (HBCU) grad, proud father, family man and self-professed “geek” who considers it his mission to entertain the world by creating content that resonates with multicultural audiences. Also central to his ethos is embedding redemptive messages at the core of his projects and highlighting societal issues through entertainment. Jackson is president of DJ Classicz Productions, an independent production company he founded which generates edgy, young adult driven film and television projects for international audiences.

Dallas served as executive producer for 10 episodes of the limited series crime-drama “REBEL” on BET/Viacom Networks, where he worked alongside one of his industry heroes – the late, iconic director John Singleton. Dallas directed, produced and co-wrote the teen slasher film “THRILLER” for Blumhouse Pictures/Universal Pictures, which debuted on Netflix in April, 2019 and stars Mykelti Williamson, RZA, and Vanessa Bell Calloway. His 2020 action feature “WELCOME TO SUDDEN DEATH” starring Michael Jai White is also still in heavy rotation on Netflix, where it ranked among the “top 10” movies on the platform for weeks following its release. 

Jackson’s new high-octane action thriller “THE SYSTEM” starring Tyrese Gibson, Terrence Howard, Jeremy Piven, and Lil Yachty, explores corruption in America’s prison-for-profit privatized correctional system.

Al Sharpton at Chicago International Film Festival via 360 MAGAZINE.

Sharpton @ChiFilmFest

How did the iconic civil rights advocate who became famous for his outspoken rhetoric become one of the nation’s most prominent leaders of the movement? Loudmouth cuts through the clichés and assumptions surrounding the track-suit-wearing crusader to investigate the roots of his political engagement and his transformation into a media-savvy activist. Playing into the tabloid journalism of the Jerry Springers and Phil Donahues of his heyday, Sharpton effectively raised awareness about the systemic injustice, racism, and white supremacy that has persisted in America. As he once famously declared, “Critics would say that all Al Sharpton wants is publicity. Well, that’s exactly what I want.”

Join Reverend Sharpton at Chicago International Film Festival

LOUDMOUTH, the documentary that focuses on Reverend Al Sharpton’s activism, will premier at the 58th Chicago International Film Festival on Monday, October 17, 2022. The film chronicles Reverend Sharpton’s activism across the years.

Reverend Sharpton will be in attendance and will be joined by local political, business and religious leaders. If you’re in the Chicagoland area, there is still time for you to purchase your ticket here.

Standing With Black Contractors

Earlier this week, Reverend Sharpton joined Black contractors in Cleveland who have been locked in a two-year battle with Sherwin-Williams over the development of the company’s global headquarters. The group of contractors are protesting the paint company’s promise that it would have a Black-owned contracting firm in place as a key partner in the project. That has not happened.  Reverend Sharpton has called on Cleveland’s mayor, Justin Bibb, to get involved in the dispute.

“I think that they to make sure that anytime taxpayers’ dollars are used that they listen to all segments of the community and make sure people are genuinely the businesses are given part of the general contract,” Reverend Sharpton said.

Carson MacCormac stars in Netflix thriller film Luckiest Girl Alive via 360 MAGAZINE.

Carson MacCormac in Netflix’s Luckiest Girl Alive

Listen to Carson MacCormac chat with Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG podcast HERE.

Carson MacCormac will soon be seen in a provocative, supporting role as a young Dean in Lionsgate‘s eagerly awaited thriller Luckiest Girl Alive.

”I think this project is fantastic. I’m really excited to be a part of its cast… The Crew and everyone on board is so talented, so I really think it’s going to be a good one.” That’s Carson’s take on his involvement in the project.

This forthcoming film, featuring Connie Britton, Mila Kunis, and Finn Wittrock, brings Jessica Knoll‘s best-selling novel to life. It tells the story of Ani FaNelli (Kunis), a young woman who has a perfect life in New York, which ultimately turns out to be a fantasy. Things change for the worse as she is forced to relive a traumatic incident from her teenage history. After being accosted by a documentary director, she speaks of the nightmare. Afterward, everyone and everything within her world begin to crumble.

MacCormac plays a cowardly and selfish student who is the catalyst for the unspeakable events which took place during Kunis’ adolescence. Carson describes his performance as intense, and it literally terrified him to get so submerged. ”It makes me sad to dive into it when I first got the script,” he says.

It is clear that MacCormac is an arts apprentice and enjoys reading and writing. While the thriller was based in the 1990s, this able-bodied actor handled both the vernacular and temperament of the game with ease. ‘’I love doing roles when I get to play characters that are in a different time frame, a different world,” he confesses.

Directed by Mike Barker and produced by Buddy Enright, this movie will have everyone locked on their flat screens while on the edge of their sofas.
