I’m a little late in posting this, but I’m still excited! As you may know, my documentary of Buddy Scotto, a community activist in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood, aired in the NYC market on CUNY TV in April of this year. It was shown as part of “219 West,” a CUNY Graduate School of Journalism television newsmagazine similar to “60 Minutes.”
If you don’t live in NYC or didn’t catch it when it aired, the episode is now available online! My portion runs 15:19-20:52. But you should watch the entire broadcast!
In Design, Directors, Film, Movie Poster Monday on August 6, 2012 at 3:34 pm
Movie Poster Monday is back! Today’s entry celebrates the new “greatest film of all time:” Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 thriller “Vertigo.”
The British Film Institute’s Sight & Sound poll voted the James Stewart and Kim Novak starrer into the #1 spot ahead of perennial winner “Citizen Kane.” The poll results combined answers from 846 critics.
The poster, designed by Saul Bass, strongly recalls the era’s mid-century modern design.
In Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music, Video on July 17, 2012 at 12:42 pm
I’m so proud to finally say this is up! I’ve been working with the Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music (BQCM) on a couple of projects, and one of them is now online!
The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO) is trying to raise money so that well-known composer Harris Eisenstadt can compose a musical work and share it with the BCCO’s education outreach program for children. I interviewed Eisenstadt and Music Director Dorothy Savitch, and used older concert footage and stills.
The trailer is now on Kickstarter, and there’s a little less than three months to donate. Thanks to Dorothy for allowing me to work with her on this wonderful project!
