Watch my Q&A after Wednesday’s Tell-Tale live-streaming


Yesterday evening NewFilmmakers NY hosted a Facebook live streaming of most of their Wednesday program originally scheduled to screen at the Anthology Theatre in New York City, and now postponed for sometime after the Coronavirus pandemic subsides.

The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” closed out the program.  As much as I would have preferred to experience the screening in a theatre, it was novel and fascinating to watch it on the Facebook live-streaming screen, while comments were being posted to the right and anytime someone clicked one of the like or heart or emoji buttons on the bottom the icon floated jauntily up the screen.

The live streaming of the film and all the virtual interaction on the site was a one time thing, not preserved for posterity.  But I did get Ed to video-record his laptop screen during my Q&A.

Q&A Screen Shot 2020-03-25 at 11.38.56 PMThere were some technical difficulties with the Q&A, resulting in me being the only director NewFimmaker NY’s program director Brandon Ruckdashel was able to interview; although, as you will see in the video below there was a bit of a sound snafu (mostly in my own ears) at the beginning of our Q&A.

You’ll see me talking about the process of recording the score and filming on set.  You’ll also – drum roll – see me announce that I’m working on a companion piece to Tell-Tale.  You’ll have to watch the Q&A video to find out what it is.

Or wait for the inevitable blog post about it. 😉
