1. ROMANCING a tribute


    from scott ewing Added 6,875 89 8

    I put this little montage together for two reasons. The first was as a thank you to my wife Tiffany for all the encouragement and support she has given me over the years. She truly is my rock. The second was to celebrate two genres that are often dismissed by cinema goers. Musicals and dance. It's a true shame. This montage doesn't even scratch the surface of the terrific films out there. If "ROMANCING a tribute" inspires just ONE viewer to give either of the two genres a legitimate chance, well, then mission accomplished. MUSIC Vampire Weekend - Diane Young Monsters of Men - Lakehouse Benny Goodman - Sing, Sing, Sing NOTES This montage was assembled for us in my editing demo reel. I DO NOT own the rights to the music or footage used and in NO WAY plan to profit from it's use.

      from Dan's Films Added 15.3K 78 12

      This new character, and imposing drama queen personality of mine, wanted so badly to play out his dramatic musical star finale, and just like 'Norma', he's ready for the close up - only he wanted to do it scantily-clad, or pretty much naked, with symbolic blood conveying his anguish and sorrow! I performed the vocals over an amazing track called 'Devotion' - written by my main soundtrack man, Joseph Roy To download his fabulous E.P, soon to be album, please go to: http://soundcloud.com/artdjbugajoe

          After ferrying over to the beach community of Fire Island last summer, we attended the inaugural Fire Island Opera Festival. With the image of the grandeur of traditional opera burned into our minds, we were pleasantly surprised by how intimate, relatable and playful the experience was—from culinary themed performances to gender-bending ones. We recently spoke with Fire Island Opera's Edwin Cahill (Artistic Director) and Bradley Moore (Music Director) to reflect on last summer's performances, and to find out what's next.

            A quick glimpse of J-Walt's Spontaneous Fantasia shows. J-Walt draws improvised virtual realities as part of a spectacular one-man show. Featured in this video are two new interfaces for the show. The first is the Razer Hydra, a two-handed wand interface that J-Walt uses for drawing figures and navigating a 3D space. The second interface is the ANITAR (animation guitar), J-Walt's new invention for drawing in space. All the animation in this clip is created in real-time during Spontaneous Fantasia shows. The landscapes, dancing figures, animated geometries, and sea creatures are all part of J-Walt's performance repertoire. Designed, programmed, and performed with original music by J-Walt.

              • Dr Dee: footage from the show and audience reactions


                from English National Opera Added 3,780 7 1

                #ENODee Starring Damon Albarn About the production Following the success of Damon Albarn’s Monkey: Journey to the West, ENO presents the London premiere of Albarn’s visionary new opera Dr Dee. Although largely unknown today, Doctor Dee was the quintessential Renaissance Man. From astrology to alchemy and physics to philosophy, his thirst for knowledge was insatiable and, as a key advisor to Elizabeth I, he is credited with providing much of the intelligence which shaped ‘the British Empire’ established under her rule. Dee also dabbled in the occult and, ultimately, this fascination destroyed him. Conned by a deranged medium, Dee’s career ended in disgrace and sexual scandal and he died discredited and penniless. This fascinating figure is bought to life by the extraordinary talents of composer and musician Damon Albarn, and director Rufus Norris. Albarn’s music is an ingenious mix of pop vocals, much of which he will perform live on-stage, with contemporary orchestral music played on 16th-century period instruments. Rufus Norris’s staging presents five centuries of English history and the three realms of earth, heaven and hell, with the virtuosic flare which has secured him a raft of awards and five-star reviews from London to Broadway. Reviews of Dr Dee’s 2011 staging at the Manchester International Festival: ‘Fresh, original and heartfelt... I was entranced’ The Daily Telegraph ‘A thoroughly beguiling spectacle… deserves a gold medal for sheer imagination and invention’ The Observer ‘A breathtaking spectacle... rich in invention, imagery and imagination’ The Stage Performances June 25, 26, 28, 29 & July 4, 6, 7 at 7.30pm , July 7 at 2.30pm 8 performances. Running time: 2hrs. Pre-performance talk: Thur June 28, 5.30-6.15pm, £5 Visit www.eno.org for more info. Album “Dr Dee”, a new studio album by Damon Albarn, set for release by Parlophone Records on 7th May 2012. Dr Dee is 18 tracks of songs combining Albarn's voice with early English choral and instrumentation alongside modern, West African and Renaissance sounds. Dr Dee was recorded late last year in Albarn’s West London studio and also in Salford with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. The album was mixed by Valgeir Sigursson in Reykjavik. Dr Dee will be available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download. For more info visit: http://widgets.platform.emi.com/landing/c02742dc31874568b24864530c053359.html

                  JACK COLE: JAZZ (1911-1974) A fiscal sponsored project of Dance Films Association (DFA, co-production of Annette Macdonald with the Culver City based company Timeline Films. In the late 30′s, Jack Cole changed the face of dance in musical theatre. He is the genius behind the sultry presence of Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and Betty Grable. Jerome Robbins. Vanity Fair, December 1984 wrote that Jack Cole’s contributions were so far-reaching that without him present day theatrical dancing would not be the same. He was outrageous, stunningly so. Everyone teaching jazz dance today teaches much of what Cole founded and codified.”

                      from Second Story Added

                      Through two apertures in this period-inspired, moveable peep-show, visitors can peer into the colorful past of Portland’s Armory building. For years this enigmatic landmark stood silent in an encroaching urban revitalization: a fortress-like façade kept its history protected and obscured. The personality of the building inspired the storytelling and the cabinet that now reveals its past since it was opened to the public. The cabinet borrows the architectural elements of the façade and entices individuals to peer into viewing holes to watch the mechanically-inspired animations that caricature each era of its past. Following each show visitors can use the wooden joystick on the cabinet exterior to reveal slideshows of archival pictures and information. Without any apparent signs of technology, this free-standing unit can be moved to different locations throughout the building.
