written by HP Mendoza and Richard Wong, with music by HP Mendoza. Directed by Richard Wong.
The multi-festival winning, theatrically distributed (Roadside Attractions) outsider low budget indie musical from
San Francisco that caused a great stir in '06-'07. Wonderfully staged musical numbers shot on location, a story full of pathos, irony, humor and heartbreak--what more could anyone ask of a movie? This movie will launch several careers. (Not mine...) (I did the theatrical remix.)
BAREFOOT TO JERUSALEM (feature film) 2008
Nietzchka Keene, produced by Patrick Moyroud with music by Marshall Crutcher.
The late Nietzchka Keene's last film, written, directed and edited by her and completed after her death by long-time collaborator and producer Patrick Moyroud. What begins as a fairly conventional story of betrayal in love moves off into territory that is uniquely Keene's. In the green fields of summertime Wisconsin she finds mysticism, the struggle between good and evil, faith and finally redemption. The sound track of this film was an unusually close collaboration between composer and sound designer, and the result is both powerful and highly unconventional.
MY TINY UNIVERSE (feature film) 2004
Written, directed and produced by Glen Scantlebury and Lucy Phillips. With John Hurt, Andy Comeau, Lesley-Ann Warren and Debbie Mazar. Edited by Glen Scantlebury, photographed by Eliot Rocket, with music by Greg Hale Jones. A suicidal actor is interrupted in the act by the ring of a cell phone, a phone that turns out to have been lost by one of the biggest producers in Hollywood. This discovery sets off an unpredictable and very funny round of acts of revenge, self-promotion and delusion and ultimately, escape. An AFI Festival selection.
