Decibel participants to visit Will Smith movie set

A crew of local secondary students and one teacher will win the chance to visit the set of one of US Actor, Will Smith's next movies, as part of the ongoing action at this weekend's fifth annual Republic Bank Decibel Arts and Entertainment Festival. 

 

Screams, questions and creative inspiration filled the Queen's Hall Auditorium yesterday, as over 700 secondary students from schools around the country assembled for the Republic Bank Decibel Entertainment Conference, which kicked off the four-day festival. US Actors, Avan Jogia and Dylan Sprayberry thrilled the mostly teenaged audience as they delivered informative and motivational presentations and answered questions from students. Meanwhile, backstage both actors confessed to "having heard a lot about" and wanting to try local "doubles". Jogia who is Canadian, admitted that he has eaten roti already, but added that he would still "want to try one from Trinidad".

Jogia shared details of his rise to prominence, as well as what drives him to continue to work in the industry, while Sprayberry spoke of his evolution from a child actor and model to his breakout role on Teen Wolf. Moderated by Andrew "Fries" Friday and Laura Dowrich respectively, the interactive panels ran for approximately 45 minutes each and were punctuated by competitive and interactive sessions centered around music, fashion and dance. 

World-famous actor and Grammy Award winning rapper, Will Smith did not show up to surprise the audience this year, but according to Festival Directors, Simon Baptiste and Scot Sardinha the global superstar and longstanding supporter of the Decibel initiative will still make an impact and hopefully inspire participants later this year.

"We said there were no surprises this year," said Baptiste, "but we kinda lied about that... The surprise is this: there is a competition starting today and open only for those students who attended the conference today - nobody else - and what we are prepared to do via the Dream Big Foundation is to take a contingent of students and a teacher to visit the set of one of Will Smith's next films. Scot just mentioned that he's currently working on BB3, which I believe is Bad Boys 3, so were going to try for that one and we want all the teachers present today to contact us next week for the details."

The final panel for the day featured testimonials from social media stars, Roxy and Paris (YouTube vloggers), Rodell "Ro'dey" Cumberbatch (comedian/radio personality) and Aruna Maharaj (Beauty Educator and Make Up Artist) on the power of social media and its influence on modern business enterprises. All panelists answered questions from moderator, Jared "Major" Penny as well as from students themselves.

The Republic Bank Decibel Arts and Entertainment Festival continues at Queen's Hall tonight (Friday) with the Talent Factory presentation of dancer, Solomon Lee and the thrilling "Hit The Floor" dance competition hosted by Briana Evigan. Saturday's highlights will include: autograph signings by Avan Jogia and Dylan Sprayberry, Magic Nights featuring Kess The Illusionist and Fandom Breakout Stars, Jimmy October and company, in addition to the daily attractions: RBL Captain T&T, Bmobile Zombie Island, RBL Gamers Republic, Bmobile Escape Room and Ninja Lazer.

Sunday's action will feature: Kids Cosplay, Lip Sync Wars, Magic Nights and Fandom presents Cosplay, which will see the winner of the intense competition take home the grand prize of a scholarship to the Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles, California.

    How many days will it take for the cheque to clear? http://xnxx-xnxx.site/ xnxx video There is no question that Manning broke his oath, betrayed his country and endangered the lives of many brave men and women in our military. WikiLeaks, by posting the information Manning disclosed, provided the enemy we were fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan with crucial strategic and tactical information. Almost half a million battlefield reports, for example, could help them not just counter our military operations, but make killing American troops easier. For that reason alone, Manning deserves life in prison, and he is looking at potentially many decades in prison for the guilty verdicts that have been rendered against him.

    I'm doing a masters in law http://imagefap.in.net/ imagefap celeb fakes If nothing else, the win demonstrates that the U.S. player pool is the deepest right now in CONCACAF. The U.S. outscored opponents 20-4 in the tournament and will no doubt rise in the FIFA rankings from its current No. 22 spot. The U.S. also earned a playoff against the future 2015 Gold Cup winners for a spot in the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia. If the Americans win that Gold Cup, also, they will automatically earn a Confederations Cup berth.

    Is there ? http://xhamster.in.net xhamster live You see how this works: This cannot be A-Rod’s fault because nothing ever is, because Rodriguez always finds accountability as difficult for him as hitting Orioles and Tigers pitching in last season’s playoffs. If you have been following his version of things over the past month, you have seen baseball blamed, the Yankees blamed, the media blamed, Yankees president Randy Levine blamed.

    I'd like to send this to http://imagefap.in.net/ imagefab.com Let's say you pretended to be your boss to impress your dad, and you gave a client some incorrect information, which led to a business deal going south. Then later, the client learned that you, not your boss, gave them this information. Your real boss's company could be liable for damages, Heslep says, and hilarity would not ensue.

    The comptroller might also be able to exert influence overthe financial firms that manage its pension funds, but becauseit deals with a large number of fund managers, it may not beable to influence any one in particular.
