ONN – Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood: Give Tom Hanks The Oscar Now At Grand Lake Theater Oakland
Oakland’s Tom Hanks was out-of-this world in his portrayal of the legendary public television show host Fred Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood in “It’s A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood,” playing at The Grand Lake Theater at 3200 Grand Avenue at Lake Park in Oakland.
Also starring Matthew Rhys as Lloyd Vogel, Susan Kelechi Watson as Andrea Vogel, and the well-noted character actor Chris Cooper, the film is a story of how Mr. Rogers manages to help a cynical journalist see the beauty in his immediate family.
But Hanks himself nails Fred Rogers – every expression and nuance. It makes for one of Tom Hanks’ best performances, ever.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
