A nifty graphic for a show that's no longer...

There’s an excitement that builds when a film is coming out that you really want to see. Weeks in advance you find yourself not being able to wait for that opening night. Personally I avoid trailers, especially tv advertisements as crucial plot points and action scenes are thrown at you before you realize what’s happening. I want to experience those films the way a director or writer wanted me to, for the first time. But when you see the film, unless it was a masterpiece, the excitement goes away – the experience is ultimately fleeting. You may talk about it for a day or two, but suddenly the next big film is on your radar and you’ve forgotten the name of the movie you just saw as as you try to tell your friend how great it was.

“From Across the Room”: Awesome song!

August 21, 2008

The Company Logo...and top of website...
The Company Logo…As Artistic Director, this is what I try to do.

Being Artistic Director of a Theatre Company gives me the opportunity to facilitate creativity in several fashions that I never expected to be able to do.

Earlier this year I co-produced, co-directed, co-wrote and co-MC’ed a variety show. It was the first fundraiser and live show Theatre Unleashed did as a company. It was a fantastic time and every seat in the house was filled. One of the biggest hits was the absolutely hilarious and somewhat unnerving song: “From Across the Room”.

Written by our very own Andrew Moore. Last Saturday I sat down in a  neighbor’s studio apartment and listened (I as producer) as he recorded that song. And here it is. An absolutely hilarious song, that’s worth the .99 cents. All proceeds go to our non-profit theatre company. Please enjoy!

And come see one of our upcoming shows The Tempest or Through a Caffeine Haze. Info is at our website. www.theatreunleashed.com

Unfortunately since it doesn’t seem I can post a snowcap player here on wordpress, here’s the link to the song itself…enjoy! It’s worth the .99cents.
