Tim Russ to Direct Local Film

Our Goal Ultimately Is to Actually Show That There Is a Capacity Within the Filmmaking Community of Northern California to Create Film Projects

Posted: 4/17/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - For a state that is known worldwide for the entertainment industry, one might think that the Capital would be full of the hustle and bustle of filmmakers as they race the setting sun to complete their last shots of the day. Unfortunately, the contrary is true: filmmaking in Sacramento is quite the challenge. With no established infrastructure, finding local cast and crew can be a challenge, not to mention the arduous task of fundraising. This is one challenge a local project hopes to take head on.

The project is called “RELLIK” (Killer in reverse), a revolutionary new crime thriller that hopes to grow into a regularly produced series here in Sacramento. Executive Producer (EP) and spokesperson for the project, Craig DeLuz, is optimistic about the film’s success. He explains how creator and EP Jason F. Knittle and writers and EPs Brian Jagger and Gwenn Conklin came together.

Company Agrees to Multiple Terms, Including Consumer Restitution and New Business Plans

Posted: 4/17/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) and Bonney Plumbing Heating Air & Rooter Service (Bonney), of Rancho Cordova, have agreed to a stipulated settlement to end an administrative case that could have led to revocation of the company’s three contractor licenses (#696355, #983208, and #987387) as well as the sole ownership license of long-time company owner Richard Mark Bonney (#397205).

CSLB filed an accusation against the licenses in September 2014 after receiving several consumer complaints about the company overcharging customers, failing to pull necessary building permits, misrepresenting work that needed to be done, and using unregistered salespeople when contracting for home improvement work. Several of the customers were in their 80s and 90s.
