IT IS OCTOBER! Somehow it happened, a month flew by without noticing. Fall is truly here in New York City, As I am juggling pre-production for SYNAMO (read my blog on the film page of my site) and several other projects, I am packing my bags to direct two Music Videos for the great singer Izaline Callister.
We film in my hometown of CURAƇAO from October 5 till 10.(See the picture for one of the sites) Working again with Dolph van Stapele.

On a personal note while I am away, on October 6h, composer, artist, guitarist and husband Vernon Reid receives the Mayor’s award for Arts and Culture from New York’s Mayor Bloomberg himself.

Will bring a wonderful musical adventure called FIRE & FIRE part of the extremely Hungary Festival.
Extremely Hungary presents Fire + Fire

Peter Jay Sharp Theatre
$30; Members $25; Day of Show $35
As part of the yearlong Extremely Hungary festival, Fire + Fire is a collaborative and conceptual music-theatre work that will explore and underscore the dual histories of musical expression and political oppression that mark African American and Roma peoples in, respectively, the USA and Hungary. It will feature an ensemble of performers from both cultures who are both deeply rooted in their ancestral traditions and intensely experimental in their expression of them.

While you are at it: just started participation in a new Feature Film
