AUDIO POST-PRODUCTION: DRAMA, INTERNET, SPECIAL VENUE
ABDUCTED (Glen Scantlebury and Lucy Phillips 2013) (feature film) http://culturecrypt.com/movie-reviews/abducted-2013

JACK and MAUD (Barry Stone 2014)
STEPPING ON UP: (Jim Watson 2010-11) (PBS series) http://steppingonup.com
A new multipart series for kids featuring Michael Pritchard and some puppet friends.
AND THEN CAME LOLA (feature film) Fast Girl Films 2009 http://www.afterellen.com/tag/and-then-came-lola
written, directed and produced by Megan Siler and Ellen Siedler, edited by Eli Olson.
A new romantic comedy from the heart of SF that is rocketing through the festival circuit. Funny, sexy, sometimes sad and sometimes downright goofy--indie movie entertainment at its best.
COLMA: THE MUSICAL (feature film) (GreenRockSolid, 2007) http://www.colmafilm.com
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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barefoot_to_Jerusalem
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 http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi3369861401
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.
MY DUBIOUS SEX DRIVE (feature film) Glen Scantlebury and Lucy Phillips feature film. 1995 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113895/
A romantic comedy set in the local music scene of that time.
THE UTILIZER (feature film) (Filmakers/SCI-FI Channel) Craig Barron. 1994 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0480600/
Sci-FI channel special with full special effects, aliens, time jumping and dark humor.
THE INTERSECTION John Korty 1998
A shady currency trader on the lam, and the people in his way.
AS WE DREAM 2004 Written and directed by Dan Smith, produced by Liz Sales. Photographed by Mark Herzig, edited by Kenji Yamamoto with music by Blaise Smith. A wonderful, mysterious, atmospheric film in which both nothing much seems to happen and issues of art's relationship to real life are dealt with in a subtle and offhand way.
THE BELOVED Sarita Siegel 1997 A surrealist short drama, with sound design to match. https://vimeo.com/63008113

A collaboration of three Bay Area sound & computer artists, this piece created a spatial sonic environment accessible to early users of the internet. Twenty five continuous environmental recordings made by Perkins from a diverse range of environments around the globe are organized into a two dimensional world ranging from wet to dry along one dimension and urban to rural along the other. Listeners at internet-connected computers anywhere could move through this spatialized sound field, using software they downloaded from this site. After downloading and starting up the client application, users could move through the Netfield world by using the arrow keys on their keyboard; as they passed from one zone to another, the sounds would smoothly mix and be spatialized using a custom 3d sound spatialization system.
