I noticed you have a celebrity section and I also noticed there's several people listed there as celebrities that i've never heard of and with less credits than myself. Just how does one go about getting on that list?
Thanks in advance,
Leo Daniels

I use to have a few arcades here, but that was back in the 80's. I do however have games on locations and of course have several in my house. I hope you make it through Wilmington NC, we're 2nd only to Cali in Film production, and 3rd in TV production following California and NYC.
I know several club owners that would host an event for FREE if you're interested, I'll help out in any way that I can.
I'm working on a film now called Bolden and that wraps up on the 14th so I will have some free time after that.
Feel free to contact me, 910.632.8355=Home/Office and 910.352.2589=Cell
Thanks for the email and take care,
