About Step Up 3D

New York's intense street dancing underground comes alive in eye-popping Digital 3D in the third installment of the "Step Up" franchise as the raw, passion-fueled culture goes global. A tight-knit group of street dancers, including Luke (Rick Malambri) and Natalie (Sharni Vinson), team up with NYU freshman Moose (Adam Sevani), and find themselves pitted against the world's best hip-hop dancers in a high-stakes showdown that will change their lives forever.

As the first-ever 3D dance drama, "Step Up 3D" is the first film of its kind to actually be shot in 3D-a rising technical phenomenon that thus far has been reserved for high-concept, big-budget films. It's also the first 3D feature film to be shot entirely in New York City. Acclaimed director Jon M. Chu, who made his feature directorial debut on 2008's box-office hit, "Step Up 2 The Streets," returns to direct.
"Step Up 3D" was written by Amy Andelson & Emily Meyer, based on characters created by Duane Adler. Patrick Wachsberger & Erik Feig of Summit Entertainment produce with Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot of Offspring Entertainment.
For additional information, please visit STEP UP 3D will hit theaters on August 6th.

C-Rayz Walz Attempts to "Beat The System" July 25th

New York, New York, July 25th, 2010 -- BEAT THE SYSTEM - THE NIGHT FREEDOM FLOWS - is an all-star benefit show for C-Rayz Walz to raise money and awareness regarding his legal battles and his unfaltering determination to “Beat the System.”  C-Rayz Walz (aka the SunCycle Emcee) was recently jailed in Indiana State prison.  He is now free - but his struggle isn’t over yet - there are still trials pending and much bureaucratic red tape to untangle.  The lawyer retained by C-Rayz’ family is working diligently to get all charges dropped.  The goal of the benefit show is to help C-Rayz and his family with funding the attorney’s fees and legal costs incurred and to to ensure that C-Rayz remains Free!

He had a video in rotation on BET.  He started his own label, SunCycle Ent.  He has released 22 LPs.  C-Rayz has appeared on a variety of artist’s records including Aesop Rock and immortal Technique, and has done work with such artists as Percee P and Messiah J & The Expert.  Immortal Technique is reputed to be the only MC who can hold his ground against Walz in freestyle battle.  Walz is the All-Time Champion of the long-running EOW FreeStyle Rap Battles. In June 2005, Walz starred on MTVs “Made”, in which he teaches an awkward upper-class kid from the suburbs how to be an emcee.

C-Rayz has musically collaborated with so many amazing artists, who have now rallied around him in support and are donating their energy, talent and resources to honor and recognize C-Rayz Walz as a true Freedom Fighter and leader in the Hip Hop community.

Keeping the momentum flowing - THE SUNCYCLE MOVEMENT has organized an amazing show and recorded a powerful CD that will be available exclusively at the show.
