The NewFilmmakers Series began over ten years ago in New York at the Famous Anthology Film Archives, screening over 500 features, 1600 shorts and is New York’s oldest and leading Screening Series. Many well known films have debuted and been discovered at NewFilmmakers including Too Much Sleep, Zero Day & Blair Witch Project.

Each month, NewFilmmakers LA at Sunset Gower Studios will be presenting Red Carpet Screenings of Documentaries, Shorts and Features that have been submitted from all over the world, followed by a Q&A with each director about the film.

However, only you can determine whether you are a “new” filmmaker or not, and all submissions are considered and welcome.

Dallas Lynn is back!!

A few months back, Rush49 featured an epic deal from fitness trainer Dallas Lynn.

Now, Dallas is back!!!

He has brought along with him 2 deals that you all really should check out.

Why?  Well because both of his deals let you bring a friend along for the fitness fun.

What does this include?

The 2nd deal is still as awesome as they come!!!!
2 At home personal training sessions for up to two people!!

Whale Watching

If you ever get a chance, go to Newport Beach to go whale watching.  It is definitely a one in a lifetime experience.

Southern California has whale watching experiences all year round. In the winter, you can see Grey Whales. In the spring, you can see Humpback’s and in the summer, you can see North Pacific Blue and Fin Whales.

The best place for a whale watching trip is almost always Orange County.  Newport Beach has a few companies that do excursions and they leave every few hours. The best part is, even if you don’t see a whale, you are definitely going to see Dolphins and Sea Lions right around the boat.

Go at the right time of day too, and the boat won’t be crowded, so you will be able to run from side to side (walk slowly, it is a boat after all) to get the best view possible.

For more information regarding where and when you will see specific sea life, click here.

Health and fitness starts with you.

Recently at Rush49, we’ve been on a fitness kick. Well, OK, not really, but some of us in the office have been eating better, biking to work and we have even been offering more deals that have to do with getting in shape.

We’ve also been lucky enough to come across a gym named Function 5 Fitness which is located in the Mid Wilshire section of Los Angeles.  Check out their website.

Right about now you are asking “Why is there a 5 in the name?” Good question. Here is the answer.

Function 5 Fitness believes in the 5 pillars of Fitness & Health. They are:

1. Nutrition

2. Purpose & Focus

3. Strength & Conditioning

4. Sport & Play

5. Rest & Recovery 

Function 5’s whole goal is to help clients take charge of their lives by achieving physical goals, learning a healthier way to live and being a part of a positive, supportive community.

We believe this is a great way to get in shape. Doing anything without support of others is never a good idea and just gets people unhappy and confused. Being part of a community will help you in the long run to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

To help you start on the road to those goals, check out the 2 deals we have for Function 5 Fitness.

You can start out slow by taking 5 Muay Thai or Kettlbells classes for only $39.  Click Here.

Biking to work is great excercise!!

Ive been trying to find ways to get in shape and enjoy the outdoors for a while.  Problem is, I’ve been lazy and poor for such a long time.
Recently, I bought a a new bike.  It was my first semi expensive one.  I paid over $400 for it.  It took me a few months to get it out too.

On Friday though, I took it out for the first time, rode up the street and was in love.  So in love!!!  I continued riding up the street, up a little further and all the way to my house……11 miles away!!!  It felt so good to feel the wind in my hair again, to see tires spinning and to get the bugs in my teeth…Ok, maybe not the bugs in teeth, but you get the idea.  Next to being on a motorcycle, being on a bike is the most freeing thing imaginable.

Before the bike, I was busing it to and from work, 5 days a week.  That takes a lot out of a person.  it sux, honestly.  1.5 hours from Culver City to Hollywood on a Metro bus is not a good way to travel.

On the bike, it took me just over an hour to get to work.  Yeah, I was sweaty, but it felt good.  The remedy to sweaty clothes is a new change of clothes in a bag.

My question to everyone reading this post.  What type of exercise makes you feel good?  What makes you want to scream happily into the wind and get a good nights sleep every night?  Let me know
Email me at  I want to know your stories.  I may even post them on out FB page.

Till then, have a great week!!
