PALM HARBOR - Graham Sheldon began producing films while he was a student at Palm Harbor University High School: documenting the school’s swim team and filming special effects with toy fighter planes on kebab skewers in front of cardboard sets in his garage.

Today, the 29-year-old is producing two feature films: a romantic comedy “The Good Catholic” starring Danny Glover and John C. McGinley and a horror film “Dry Blood.” He has been involved in documentaries “all over planet Earth,” he said, including projects that have won him an Emmy Award and two Telly Awards. He’s produced video games and even wrote a hit mobile game app.

Those old enough to remember the heyday of Hollywood westerns may find director Jon Cassar's "Forsaken" an entertaining bit of nostalgia, even if its central storyline doesn't blaze a path into fresh territory.

My generation came along toward the tail end of that era in cinematic history, with the popularity of the western genre slowly fading in the late 1960s and 1970s. While fewer and fewer big budget movies reached the big screen in the 1980s, all those classics still reached an audience on television.

Mike Love
Mike Love, Friday, May 6, 8 p.m., in Murray Theatre, at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $20. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com.

Born and raised in Oahu, Hawaii, to a musical family that spans generations, Love brings a multitude of influences to the table, all tied together by the common goal of making the world a better place. One of reggae music’s rising stars, Love has shared the stage with artists like Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson.

On his debut album “The Change I’m Seeking,” Love harkens the legends of roots reggae in both his lyrics and his sound, but never relies on any one genre to hold him down. Coming from a wealth of influences – he started out playing classical piano as a teenager and later would perform in high school bands that were more akin to the grunge sounds of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam – Love fuses the simple rhythms of classic reggae with the complex changes of the classical and rock music he was first trained on to come up with a style wholly unique to him.
