Greetings, my professional name is ABRAX LORINI. I am a disabled American veteran that served twice in a war zone for the United States. As a film and TV Commercial actor, I have never received any earnings in the form of Foreign Royalties and Residuals that are due me  from my work as a principal performer in the blockbuster movie "Titanic" alongside the Academy-Award Winning actress Kathy Bates. My role was that of the Spindly Porter. I also appeared in the follow-up documentary to Titanic titled "Ghosts of the Abyss", where I am the porter ghost. Both projects were directed by James Cameron and I have not been compensated financially as the law mandates for both movies that are nearing $3,000,000,000 (yes that's THREE BILLION DOLLARS) in profits for Twentieth Century Fox Studios, Paramount Studios, Disney and Walden Media. The mega corporations implicated along with James Cameron's companies; Earthship Productions and Lightstorm Entertainment who believe my work is too minor to pay me for, all the while they have been and continue to profit off of my services rendered as an actor. 

My entertainment attorney John J. Uribe will continue to represent me providing the costs of the proceedings are met. Every step of the legal process will be transparent and continuous updates via social networking, media coverage as well as the law offices of my attorney will provide a report on how and where the funds are being spent. ANY and ALL funds generated will only be used for the purposes of legal defense (i.e. Expert Witness, filing fees, etc) for my defense. Should there be any remaining funds after all legal expenses are met, I would like to donate the remaining funds to charities benefitting veterans (both men and women) that need legal assistance and or medical prosthetics, wheelchairs, and other needy charities that will be publicly announced such as battered women's safe homes and animal rescue groups.

I do not have the financial wherewithall as I am only surviving on my limited disability compensation from my service to my country. My attorney is available to confirm my status as a disabled veteran and any and all other questions surrounding my case and legal defense.

My case is precedent setting and needs to be fought vigorously in the interest of justice, not just for myself but for the future of other actors that are veterans, disabled veterans and actors that are new and naive to some of the more sinister business of Hollywood film and television acting that could fall prey to these questionable practices. It was challenging to work in Mexico on Titanic for nearly four months with my disabilities going unchecked and undiagnosed. Can anyone reading this imagine working for free for years as is happening to me? 

Instead of "liking" this issue on my FACEBOOK, even a dollar donation From everyone will help and is more valuable than a simple "like". I sincerely appreciate any and all financial support.

Thanks to all who will contribute to my legal fight.

Regards,

ABRAX LORINI~
