review M4H Reaction to: Pop Your Panties Video “Dear Mr. Atkins, You should be ashamed of yourself! This video is scandalous! Not only do you objectify beautiful women, but you parody their weaknesses. Paris, Nicole, and Lindsay may be celebrities, but they have feelings, too! And all this popping of panties!! It's shocking! It's immature! It's risque! What's more, you completely push the edge of the first amendment! All that said, it's perhaps the funniest parody I've ever seen!!! I thank you for selecting Media 4 Humanity to be the recipient of your generosity and creative energy. Sometimes it takes a bold move to highlight a worthy cause. It reminds me of the Panties for Peace campaign in Myanmar. Bravo! Very truly yours, Melanie Siben” “Ashamed & Scandalous Shocking & Immature it’s Risque” But…. “it’s perhaps the funniest parody I’ve ever seen”Melanie Siben, M4H

Producer Itsi Atkins: Itsi Atkins’ art as a filmmaker is in the form of Parody “imitation with a difference” (according to Wikipedia). His social activism wrestles with the most important issues of the day – war, natural disaster, political ignorance – as well as pop culture’s obsession with the rise and fall of celebrities. In its guise as “imitation” it uses the visual imagery, personae, and content of a media event – but its “difference” is in its irreverent commentary that highlights the underlying tragedy. Itsi’s art makes itself look like the real thing. It parodies, but his authentic motivation is to have the viewer see the comic side – laugh – and experience the truth without the pain. Producer/writer/director.“Itsi” is no stranger to the red carpet, with over 30 years of creative professional achievements in music, theatre, television and feature film. With over 35 film credits “Itsi” provided production leadership on such films as “Clear & Present Danger”, “Shadow Conspiracy”, “Sliver”, “The Temp”, “Big Easy” and “Highlander” and he is especially proud of his producer credit on “Long Walk Home” and working with director Robert Wise as his last feature production manager. “Itsi: returned home from Paramount Studios to New York City where he continues to create film/video productions.
