LOS ANGELES, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Actor, stuntman and filmmaker Zak Lee Guarnaccia with LightRow Pictures has launched – before hitting the market in March 2010 – the pre-order Special Limited Edition Collector’s DVD of his controversial feature film in the action/thriller/horror genre titled “RULES,” available online on www.rulesfilm.com .
“Rules” is inspired by a true story, based on a night life style in the biggest cities of the world. What does the American Dream mean today? With its dark horror-crime underworld storyline and outlandish martial arts action, Rules is an offbeat action film: it tells the story of a mysterious Italian, nightclub security guard Pietro Reed Giordano (Zak Lee Guarnaccia), who is not so fresh off the boat from Italy, and hoping he can escape his past. Is it too late to make a change or is he destined for ultimate destruction? When all he really wants is to be heard!
This Special Limited Edition Collector’s DVD includes: 35 percent off the normal price for the first 200 pre-ordered; individually numbered, limited edition beanie to showcase that YOU can Rule; individually numbered, limited edition poster signed by the director; be on the VIP list Invitation at DVD Release Party Red Carpet Event in Los Angeles; and enter the free sweepstakes to win “Rules” Collector’s Original Showcase Knife engraved with “Rules” logo and YOUR name. See Website for full info.
During the tough times, and in a moment of desperation, Zak considered acting in adult films, but as much as he loves the ladies, this was the only time he didn’t have enough guts to go through with it. As Zak reached several times the rock bottom of his life — losing everything, but not his will, health or happiness — with his dream of filmmaking he’s now committed to helping others. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the “Rules” DVD will benefit the Homeless Not Toothless Organization founded by Dr. Jay Grossman in 1992, Homeless Not Toothless is a 501c(3) non-profit program providing free dental care to the homeless and under-served. Along with actress Sharon Stone, Homeless Not Toothless is committed to building a dental and medical clinic for the 28,000 children in foster care.

This unique, Independent filmmaker resembles a super hero coming out from a comic book to keep a close eye, braking the rules, telling his personal story and the making of his action film with a few thousand dollars; but is not a hero, as heroes follow rules. Zak is an award winning actor and has been nominated for “best fight choreographer” at the AOF-Film Festival 2009. He is also a martial arts world champion and fitness expert with several successful exercise videos on the market.
