'Jordon Saffron, Taste This!' Wins Two Accolade Awards

"Move Over Gordon Ramsay, Here Comes Jordon Saffron"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - Sergio Myers, award-winning star/director/ and producer of the hip-hop mockumentary 'Becoming Pony Boi,' has won two prestigious Award of Merits from The Accolade Competition for his latest mockumentary comedy feature from 7Ponies Productions, 'Jordon Saffron, Taste This.' Sergio Myers earned a feature film award and a lead actor award for his portrayal of the egomaniacal chef (in the vein of Gordon Ramsay) Jordon Saffron. Following a stand-up comedic formula of impromptu acting, Sergio simultaneously portrays the film's lead character while directing the scenes with absolutely no script. "Just like reality TV has changed the course of traditional TV formats forever, traditional filmmaking is in need of a similar change," says Sergio. Myers, former reality show producer and creator of the hit MTV show "Sorority Life" parodies his past line of work in creating a series of "mockumentaries" based on over-the-top entertainment personalities reminiscent of Sacha Baron Cohen films and Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

In this comedic film, Jordon Saffron (Sergio Myers), suddenly loses his "taste" and everything around him -- his long-suffering girlfriend (Rachel Hunter), his TV show contract, restaurant, and business partner (Steve Schirripa). Traveling back home to Chicago humbled and penniless he faces his fears (and quite a few hilarious situations) where he reawakens to love and to "taste" again.

"Staying up late watching re-runs of Gordon Ramsay's F Word and Kitchen Nightmares gave me all the inspiration I needed to play a chef with an over the top ego." Myers wrote the film's treatment in a week, shot the film over 7 days throughout Chicago, then edited the entire movie in three months, with just a shoe-string budget -- all of which is a virtually an unheard of accomplishment in the world of moviemaking.

In winning an Accolade, Myers joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this internationally respected award. Thomas Baker, Ph.D., who chairs the Accolade Competition, had this to say about the latest winners, "The Accolade is not an easy award to win. Entries are received from around the world. The Accolade helps set the standard for craft and creativity."
