We have one more day of shooting during the month of December to finish. Editing, scoring, and narration will follow during the early months of 2014. The film in its entirely, running some eighty five minutes, should be completed by early April. After that, the intention of the film makers is to begin releasing the documentary at film festivals next Fall. We've already had a query of interest from the director of The Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival. Then, presumably, the film will eventually turn up on cable or, perhaps, PBS...with an eye on home video. A promo reel will be ready by year's end to interest potential dvd and blu-ray distributors. We've been "shooting" all Summer and into the Fall. With the joyous participation of those artists mentioned above, it is our hope that the film will have a wide range of interest to anyone involved in the love of films and film music.



Best Wishes,



Steve

It's been an exciting and rewarding journey for everyone involved in this project. In the planning stages for the past year, it appears that the shooting schedule has nearly been completed. Once the documentary has been edited and scored, it will include a lengthy interview with Hammer Films actress Veronica Carlson; a conversation and tour with Juliet Rozsa discussing her illustrious father, Miklos Rozsa; a wonderful round table discussion on the art and craft of scoring for the movies with composers Lee Holdridge and Mark McKenzie, record producer Patrick Russ, and classical guitarist and arranger Gregg Nestor; as well as a reunion with the director and star of "The Beast Within" featuring acclaimed Australian film director, Philippe Mora and Emmy nominated actor, Paul Clemens. All of these participants gave joyfully of their time and talent in order to explore the creative framework of motion picture music, and the beloved genre of science fiction, horror, and fantasy films. We hope that you'll find our efforts worthwhile.

I thought that you might find these production notes compiled by our director, Craig Jamison, entertaining. The first of these reports details the events and interviews conducted during an on location visit to the Monster Bash film convention held this past July in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in which Hammer Films star Veronica Carlson sat down for a half hour, on camera interview.

The second set of notes concerns the Los Angeles and Hollywood location photography, during which the "Composers Summit" with Lee Holdridge and Mark McKenzie took place, as well as the at home sit down with Miklos Rozsa's daughter, Juliet.

Finally, the film maker's most recent journal in which he discusses the last phase of filming the documentary on location in Philadelphia.

These engaging journals constitute the heart and soul of a film director's personal vision in what, we hope, will emerge an enjoyable, humbling motion picture documentary.



Best Wishes,

Here is the World Premiere of the first raw footage shot for this forthcoming, feature length motion picture documentary. The first film clip features Juliet Rozsa at her home, discussing her illustrious father, Miklos Rozsa, while giving a virtual tour of her home and mementos.

The second film clip includes excerpts from a film composers summit...a round table discussion of the art and history of music for the movies featuring composers Lee Holdridge and Mark McKenzie, as well as orchestrator Patrick Russ and classical guitarist and recording artist Gregg Nestor.

I hope that you'll find these first published film clips as exciting as we do...

Incidentally, the composers round table (or round sofa) discussion was held at the home, and through the sublime graciousness, of Mark McKenzie.

Sorry Everyone. I have a brand new computer. After my first attempt at posting this notification of the Veronica Carlson interview, there appeared no indication that it had gone through. After repeated attempts to "post" the message, it seems to have multiplied the postings. I'm still trying to figure this thing out. Please forgive my ineptitude.

Were you and Erwin, in the round table, the ones in the green shirt and blue shoes (that I didn't seen an on-screen credit name during the round table)?

Mr. Russ seems like a nice. I put up a new interview with him back in April of last year. One of my favorite interviews thus far.
