RATED R 18: Only in Fiji ...Porn is Hollywood

  • Rating: 0 after 1 vote
Did any of you read the article "Hollywood connection "By Geraldine Panapasa?
http://fijitimes.com/story.aspx?id=113399

When did a Pornography Film maker become Hollywood? What a joke! The poor gal (Semaima Lagilagi) in the article is innocent, only that the 'baking soda' fever by the reporter and the lack of validation protocol in the Fiji media has led to the labeling of Dale Travillion as a legitimate Hollywood movie maker. The backlash via association will affect this Semaima Lagilagi gal... Working with "HIM" ... Close proximity .... oooooh ....Need I say more? What are you all thinking? Ummm hmm!

Smells of selective public relations (PR). Yet again. Force-feeding us with 'their' stars. Ewww. Vakasisila.

The whole article RRrrreeeeks of FALSE ADVERTISING. Promoting Hollywood as a non-Hollywood is FRAUDULENT. Fijians will think that he is what Lagilagi's feature is promoting him as being - a Hollywood writer, producer, director .... LIE ...LIE..LASULASU. Lagilagi is referencing going to 'beautiful' parts of Fiji as a part of her job with Travillion ...sounds a lot like LOCATION SCOUTING to me ....Hmmmmm. The question that pervades the senses is "Who is getting paid for the 'beautiful' locations during on-site filming?" The going rate in the USA is US$5K per day on private residential properties. Exotic locations ...possibly much more. The difference is, legitimate Hollywood films pay residential properties the minimum of US$15K per day.

Purleez ... "develop talent for small independent Fiji-made films" ... Huh! With his pornography film credits one can assume that Travillion will lead his prospective talents towards his 'road already travelled'. IT IS WHAT HE KNOWS. Who knows maybe they've filmed some of their 'smut' already.

Dale Travillion films:

1. Timeless Obsession(1997) D-Class film with lesbian erotica
2. Heart of Stone (2001) D-Class film with violent erotica
3. Playtime & Dangerous Invitations & Close Enough to Touch D-Class Erotica
4. Gentleman's Bet & Pay D-Class film Erotica
5. Play Time (1994) D-Class film consensual voyeurism Erotica


The list goes on and on .....With all the wannabe porn film busts in Fiji ( Lami, Nadi, Deuba, Pacific Habour and Savusavu) one has to wonder WTF? If it is so criminalised then why is this man being indirectly touted in our Fiji Times? The very same medium that released the following article featured this headline:

Army hunts for pornography stars http://www.fijitimes.com/story.aspx?id=56767

Suppose Fiji through the Fiji Times will single handedly redefine HOLLYWOOD. How embarrassing! Cava qo de Holy "wood"? Just because Travillion's films are featured on the Playboy channel does not solidify him in the way the article promotes his work. No parent in Fiji will allow or encourage their child's creative intelligence to be misdirected towards pornography.



Kate Winslet's - The Reader is art. Dale Travillion's productions are smut films. Travillion is not Stephen Daldry as a director. Travillion is not David Hare (script writer) or Bernhard Schlink (book author). Travillion is not Scott Rudin (producer). Hellllllo this is a no brainer ....Once you go BLUE (porn), the 'Hollies' will reject you. Tainted 'artistry' is un-welcome.

HINT: The Golden Globes and the Oscar's don't have an EROTICA category. Hollywood + Legitimate film artform = Oscar's/Golden Globes/ Sundance/ Cannes/ Tribeca et al

Erotica films + D-Class directors+ D -Class actors = XXX Awards. Mai aso eso! Da sa kurabui ga, ka galu.

Ya na nomuni NEWS!!!!

The whole operation surely smells fishy!!!
True@fishy. LAX?! Don't miss the production's notice board!


Fishy? Or pissy?


LOL

YUCK! nnnNEU!
Fishy? Yep! Travillion's mention via this feature as a form of "product placement is suspect. The dubious nature of his intent is subtle in the guise of propriety.


...

Fatal distractions borne out of the need to supply this demand


LOL
Kaline...is that u????......thought u have eloped or somethin!!!....LOL

lol@"My Girlfriend" remind me of a previous discussion titled..."Will you Marry Your Hand"

By the way....I believe the ladies would love to see the "My Boyfriend" version....lolzzz



Well are you sure it's a lamp? It does not look like a lamp from this position. ;) I wonder if it would smell of wine either, lol
Thanks Kaline. I have no problem with the making or viewing of pornography. My concern is over the misrepresentation of the person mentioned in the article as a Hollywood producer, director, writer under false pretenses. It is the dubious nature that I'm miffed about.

LOL@ Adi Lima

Vinaka,

As per Fiji Times article story quote "'This is a despicable act of shame which Fiji has never seen before and we are working around the clock to apprehend these people,'' Col Driti was quoted as saying."

I wonder were they over 18? If yes end of story. :) Or why don't they chase after those who lurk after hours around suva city. Maybe its the law, but maybe some people need to make a living. I don't know who to sympathy with but....phew if people are old enough to know what they are doing, gee why don't they leave them be.

People tend to forget we are only good for what we lack of. If we lack money, most probably we will take the obvious route.

Perhaps we should redefine the law. Lets note make it bias towards religion, but unbiased towards survival and well beings of people.
Thanks Roi. If memory serves that case was dealt with. My rant is not about age appropriateness, moreso about the "errors in the inflation of the fact. Dale Travillion is not a Hollywood writer, producer or director. I feel that he should have been mentioned as the Erotica Film maker that he is.

I don't understand why his employee felt the need to focus on the Hollywood factor in 'her' feature article.

That was where the err occured, in committing in print that her boss is of Hollywood, defining Hollywood in Fiji. Even his company name - WTF? Travillion cannot deny that his intent was to make people believe that he is of Hollywood proper.

If they disrespect action films and their directors/actors, you can only imagine what is perceived of pornography.

Here's an example:

A law clerk, is not a Solicitor, is not a Barrister, not a QC, not a Magistrate or a Justice. Yes they are all in the legal field but you cannot mistaken one for the other. Just because you're a lawyer from any other country does not determine one's eligibility to represent any client in Fiji. My point is, just because Dale Travillion is a white American man who has made movies, does not translate to Hollywood.

My point.

Vinaka,

I see your point, yea false representation is not good....but it seems to go hand in hand with this type of work or industry.....What's the latest on this? He still in Fiji? Or long gone?
Bula tale mai roi.

He operates a wedding, family and events videographer company in Fiji. Very much there, the man is.

Da vasaravi koya tiko. The good thing is that he likes attention, so if he does any production with Fijians, this thread will know of it. Tovolea mada me distribute taka qai laurai. If he has already distributed and I don't know about it, kena balebale ya, he has gone guerilla with his distribution techniques.

Vinaka.
