On my Zoom call with Indiedance’s Craig Bettendorf

While accepting two Tell-Tale awards from Indiedance!

So, no more being coy, enough with dropping hints or announcing I will be making an announcement, as I have now and then for many months, let’s just make it official:

There will be another Poe musicabre, a companion piece to “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre“, another short film musical adaptation of a classic Edgar Allan Poe short story.

And this time it will be…

“The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre”!

Indiedance Film Festival recorded a zoom interview with me during which I basically let the cat out of the bag (or out of the bricked up wall, if you prefer Poe inspired metaphors).

They just posted that interview on their vimeo wall, and since we spend almost as much time during the interview talking about my current efforts preparing for “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” as we do talking about “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre”, I figure the time has come to just go ahead and make the official announcement in conjunction with this blog post sharing the full interview video:

Indiedance utilized these zoom interviews as a way to announce a film’s award wins at their 2020 festival. Which means filmmakers knew going in their film had won something, but not what. Tell-Tale’s awards for Horror Short and Music Score are announced in the video above, but I also posted about it the day I’d originally found out.

So watch the video (or click back to that earlier post) to partake in that news, as well as more on the making of “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre”, on preparing “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre”, plus my thanks to the Tell-Tale gang, including my dearly murdered husband, and the uncertainties of preparing to shoot an indie film in a Covid 19 world. Lots of fun and informative tidbits in a handful of minutes.

And I promise to be back with more news and anecdotes about both Poe musicabres, the one that is and the one to be…
