So I finally forced myself to watch “Incident on Marmont Ave“.
I tried twice before but the opening just freaked me out too much, a by-product of having a 3 year old daughter I guess.
But, as I’ve been listening to all of the excellent Digital Convergence Podcast episodes (@planetMitch, @chrisfenwick, @dfilmtv) I knew I would have to suck it up and watch it or miss out on at least one episode.
The short film was produced by Mitch Aunger, perhaps better known to DSLR and filmmaking enthusiasts as @planetMitch of the essential Planet5D site and forum. It was directed by Barry Andersson (@mopho_barry) who created a 15 minute movie with more tension in it than two hours of anything Hollywood’s throwing at me. It is a beautifully shot (All on the Canon 5D MarkIII) film and Andersson’s choice of shots are not only visually enticing but also add to or extend the tension, sometimes to an achingly frustrating height. There is one shot in particular on a staircase that may have you screaming at the screen.
Well I don’t want to give it all away. It’s a wonderful movie and I highly recommend giving it a look.
One thing I really enjoy about the AppleTV is the ability to watch Vimeo or YouTube on the TV. Nice way to watch.
This is a video presentation done for Shenandoah Conservatory’s dedication of their Voice Research Center.
It is named after Janette Ogg who I met with twice while making this and can definitely see why she is so beloved by so many people.
