My name is David Sandoval Jr…and I was a Hitman. I am until I die a Made Man in Bonanno Family. I was born into “The Life”, my old man was an enforcer for the Bonanno’s in New York and my mom was niece of The Boss. I was born in Brooklyn New York and I was ordered by The Boss to move to San Jose, CA to expand the Family’s interest into San Jose, CA.
I ran the San Jose, CA branch of Bonanno Crew, we did Hits, Collections and we were major players in the Dope game. We we’re The Earners …My story is a true insiders view of the mafia in Northern California and it that comes from “The Street”, from The Capos to The Soldiers to The Connected guys… to The Hitman.
Me and my crew made The Family successful in San Jose and we accomplished this by having the Power of Money, Fear & Murder.
We are raising $1,600,000 for our budget and are filming the project in San Jose, CA on April 6, 2020.
We are currently in negotiations with marquee actors for principal roles, actors such as Ray Liotta (Goodfellas (1990), Armand Assante (Gotti (1996) and Lillo Brancato (A Bronx Tale (1993) & The Sopranos (2000).
I am in tight with much love with my San Jose Community and I have the love and respect of my community to successfully make this film.

The Faction of a Hitman
The Faction A Hitman. Blood, Money or Loyalty
Written by David M Sandoval Jr based on True Events
The Faction of A Hitman is based on lives that are in the Mafia across all raciest Involved in California in the 1970’s to mid-80’s, mayhem ensues, but through the craziness and how deadly the Italians can be. They bring control to the region.
Angelo is a charismatic, Twenty to Thirty Something enforcer and Drug connection in New York working for the Gambino’s destined to be made. One to relay on in any situation, very loyal. He works and knows most crew members from all families. He is friends with Jr from the Bonanno’s which is the Son of the boss of the family. Jr and Angelo become best friends. He starts hanging more with Jr and his crew. Starts doing pick up hits for the Bonanno’s with Animal. While hanging around Angelo meets the Niece Ashely and starts dating her, she becomes his main girl. Ashely is in her 20’s and falls head over heels for him. With his loyalty to the Gambino’s it causes a problem for their relationship. As time goes on the Boss retires, which puts the family in a situation. Angelo mission is to protect his best friend Jr. Angelo Marries Ashely to become a member of Jr’s crew.
The Crime Boss retires leaves New York and takes a few loyal soldiers with Him. The Five Families give him an opportunity to run a new State with over site. Which he was already in works with. He has sent Angelo and some Members out to the new location to get things set up. This is where the mayhem begins. Not knowing to anyone, any member what fight lays ahead.
Now in San Jose, Angelo and Joe starts to set up connections. They get real estate, business and become members of the community. Under the Businessmen they portray they take over the region Dope Deals, Racketing, enforcement and money Laundering. They are ruthless in the way they do it New York style. The organize the local gangs, Prison gangs for all raciest to get cuts of everything. With that comes the local Gangs that fight back. And things go south for the Italians.
With the Head of the Family between CA and Az they control a lot of factions. One faction they can’t control is the Police. They must fight not only the Local but the Feds. Since San Jose had not seen crime at this level prior, they bring in a hot shot FBI Agent from Boston to work the Organized crime division.
Angelo is becoming a figure in the Underground of San Jose known as a killer along with Jr which tends to get into more problems with his hot temper. Sr is looking more to Angelo as a leader then Jr, which is causing a little e between the friends. Both of their Wife’s are best friends and work in the Art gallery that Jr and Karen own.
Jr is aware of the push for Angelo to become leader and pushes him into situation that are simply crazy. The California Faction of the Crime family is not paying attention to what New York is doing and now is going to hit the Crime family hard.
As this unfolds in the foreground, the story’s backdrop reveals that, in the midst of a particularly hot summer that New York has sanctioned a Hit on the Family all the Underbosses to make a point, which they believe to be Jr and Angelo are. Pay back for not following Mafia Rules.
With New York mobster here in San Jose all the other Factions start to get wind and gets into the War.
Angelo, Jr and Animal take on a war which is brutal, unforeseen. They have so much to lose. They don’t back down and take on this fight with open eyes. They are going after the New York crew with vengeance. The Head of the Family gets involved but before he can make moves the FBI gets Sr. Gets sent away for a year. Jr and Angelo now have to run the family and fight the War.
Through all the fighting and killing they get it done. Lost a lot of Friends and Soldiers. Family never the same in California. With all the did, Killed and money they made. The Crime Boss of the Family stills gets Ostracized out.
Angelo Says “San Jose, Are you kidding me? Nothing happens in San Jose”

“Let It All Burn” out NOW on all music platforms!
Listen Now: https://lnk.to/letitallburn
Here is what people are saying:
Tuneloud: Make no mistake, Love Ghost is one of the most promising young alternative rock bands on the planet. This song is a great way of encouraging people to keep pushing through because the human spirit can conquer anything. It shows what has become of society now, and in a way, it really calls out all the nonsense of the world. The arena-driven chorus-heavy attack of “Let It All Burn” presents one of the finest, mainstream-ready songs the band have penned and performed thus far. http://www.tunedloud.com/2019/11/08/love-ghost-let-it-all-burn-pushes-the-group-to-new-heights/
Tattoo.com: “Let It All Burn” is superb, definitely one of the best singles of the year, full of hurricane-force energy crowned by Bell’s lethal vocals.
Staccatofy: With robust frontman attitude and pipes, Love Ghost is a post-millennial band that is also making guitars matter again with the dual drive of Bell and Renard.
sleepingbagstudios: I’d have to hazard a guess that Love Ghost is feeling pretty damn good about the way things have shaped up with their new single & video. Sounds awesome, looks awesome. Hooks are found in abundance throughout “Let It All Burn” and the video is sharp AF. Love Ghost has made the most of this moment and infused this single with everything from Post-Punk to New Wave, Alternative, Rock, Indie…arguably even Pop; the end results produce an undeniably accessible sound that’s got a massively widespread appeal to it all.
The Trump Presidential Library:
A sneak preview of the books to come…
By Kevin E. West
The Presidential library, established since Herbert Hoover, has become a tradition in which documents, artifacts, gifts of state, and museum exhibits are maintained that relate to the former president’s life and career, both political and professional. Upon the departure of a U.S. President, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) establishes a presidential materials project to house and index the documents until a new presidential library is built and transferred to the federal government.
Typically presidential libraries are established in a former president’s home state, but based on the number of lawsuits filed by the Southern District of New York it is difficult to predict when a library could or would be built in the state of New York as Mr. Trump may be physically detained and “unavailable” for its commencement. Additionally, it seems most of what Mr. Trump has collected during his White House tenure are just bags of cash, rather than gifts and artifacts so the (NARA) may be short on Presidential inventory.
So, with the current impeachment inquiry underway, the legitimate possibility exists that Donald J. Trump may not win re-election in 2020 or even see his first term to its natural end. With all of this uncertainty swirling about we wanted to bring some calm and clarity to this prestigious post-Presidency honor. Yes, there’s no doubt that Mr. Trump will proudly display The Art of the Deal in his Presidential library but what about all of the other potential literary gems that will provide a retrospective on @RealDonaldTrump?
Therefore, prior to the Holiday gift giving and the American exuberance for the joy of the season, this seemed like a good time to present a short list of the books that we expect to populate a few shelves of the Presidential library Donald J. Trump may have written, about him, by him, or his many cherished children, lovers, associates, friends, former staff and Cabinet members. We just can’t wait to feast our eyes on these!

Film and TV Audition Technique Workshop with Rhavynn Drummer
November 16, 2019 * Harbison Theatre
In my travels around the world talking to people for a living, I have met some of the most amazing people. But the one thing that strikes me is that many of them are Veterans. They are the folks ready to talk, stand up for the country, their family and are the kindest people in the world. I know i am not the first person to say this statement… The veterans DO NOT get what they deserve
Many people say they want to help the troops, and the Veterans, but many fall short, because we have our own things to care of in our lives. So when I read about a company and it’s focus is our veterans I want to share their stories, read on!

Steven Bernstein Director and Writer is our guest this week on ActingUpRadio.com
So this is where I tell you actors and industry folks that if you don’t do social media you are missing the boat. That if you don’t engage in a proper way on your social media, you most likely are the type of person that is waiting for opportunities instead of running after them and if you don’t know this by now, life does not run after you, death does.
Where am I going with this, well our guest today Steven Bernstein Director and Writer constantly in our conversation on the show talked about being fearless, going after it, look at things in a different way. Hence, the way I got Steve on the interview. I “Lightly” invite him on Instagram. When I say lightly, I mean no heavy handed, constant direct messages and no Me Me Me request.
Take it from me that when you get successful at anything, social media brings out a lot of people that believe it is ok to ask for anything. Things I would not even give you if you were standing in front of me and had my attention. Anyway, using your social media the right way can get you conversations with all types of people and possibly opportunities.
So, my social media tip of the day: If it would bother you, it bothers others, be respectful and engage with your social media followers don’t engulf them.

It’s going… to be… my 6th…
To celebrate Mindhunter Season 2 release, we’re continuing our journey of controversial acting roles, leaping straight into the heavy stuff — serial killers. We posted a poll on our Facebook Page, asking the following:

Mindhunter Season 2

The long-awaited Mindhunter Season 2 was released just a few days ago — on August 16th. Often new seasons come with disappointment. However, Season 2 brings creepy-flavored treats to any mindf#ck-loving weirdo out there.
Spoiler alert! If you continue reading this article, you’ll find out what kind of serial killers are shown in Mindhunter TV series.
Serial Killers on Mindhunter TV Series
More than celebrating great films and TV shows, we celebrate great actors. In Mindhunter several actors took up the terrifying challenge of playing a serial killer. Can you imagine it? Tapping into the mind of a psychopath. Not just understanding how you go about killing a human being, but how you see it as a vocation. What do you think? Could YOU pull this off?
Cameron Britton as Ed Kemper, the coed killer
Don’t let that lovely smile trick you. Cameron Britton didn’t just take creepy to a whole new level. He managed to trigger panic attacks not only in the TV series but also in real-life, for anyone who was watching him…
Damon Herriman as Charles Manson
Damon Harriman played Charles Manson both in Mindhunter and the scandalous new film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”.

Acting Up Radio talks to award winning Filmmaker & Television Director Shaun Piccinino
Our guest today on ActingUpRadio.com is award winning Filmmaker and Television Director Shaun Paul Piccinino.
He has been pursuing his passion of entertaining through the lens of a true fan of film & television. Since his move to Los Angeles from Northern California in 2001, he has worked in just about every aspect of the business.
From acting, to action coordinating, from scriptwriting to producing, from editing, to visual effects, all the way to feature film directing, Shaun has become a well rounded filmmaker.
A few early achievements include the hit SPIKE TV series, “Deadliest Warrior”, where Shaun not only directed many episodes, he also portrayed Scottish hero William Wallace.
Lady Drivers: In theaters in the beginning of Oct:
Lady Drivers: When a rebellious teen embarks on a solo summer journey to connect with her roots, she finds herself in a new world, geared up for the ride of her life, and discovers she had the drive in her all along.
“American Fighter”, a gritty action film for Forrest Films (Theatrical) and Warner Brothers Home Entertainment. “Lady Driver”, a film about a 16 year old young lady who dares to become a Circle Track Car Champion Driver in a male dominated sport, and “Roped”, a rough and tumble Cowboy Rodeo film also for Forrest Films and Warner Brothers Home Entertainment.
Shaun also recently directed another feature film. A race car comedy called, “Wheels Of Fortune” in the vein of “Cannonball Run” and “Talladega Nights” for Forrest Films & Esx Entertainment.
Shaun’s most recent work includes directing six episodes for an upcoming science fiction action series called, “Salvage Marines” staring Casper Van Dien and Armand Assante.
*Shaun is on the short list for many more upcoming projects as well.
DIVERSIFY OR DIE!
Shaun is not your average director, as he has years of experience in many areas within film and television productions, something that many directors do not possess. This gives Shaun a special understanding of most departments, what they do, the intricacies, as well as their day to day struggles and how to over come them. This really helps in production team building and reacting appropriate to problems should they arise on set. A very important key, to a smooth show.
