OTOSOTU?

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, In : books and movies 

AH, have you heard about OTOSOTU (pronounced “Oh-Toe-So-Two” for the JET Progress movie “On The Other Side Of The Universe”)? OTOSOTU is unusual right from the beginning, being a sci-fu film about the nature of the human soul. Filming finished in late February, and the work is now in post production, with an anticipated release in late 2024. In the prior post, I described some of what goes on during the mysterious “post-production” period.


As of today, the over 600 scenes, filmed...

THE SOUND(S) OF MAGIC

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, October 20, 2023, In : books and movies 

BEING both a movie actor and director, as well as a movie affectionado, I'm well aware of the part that a good soundtrack plays in any and every movie, right down to the ability of "the right" music being able to, almost on its own, invoke viewer emotional attachment and garner views/sales. But I've often wondered exactly how much music also masks the acting and story. So, when world class author and scriptwriter, William Maltese, sent me a script for WINNOWING, I determined to make it an exp...

MUSIC FOR POST-MODERN “SOFT” NEO-NOIR FILMS

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, June 25, 2023, In : books and movies 

I recently posted regarding the film WINNOWING — https://winnowing.yolasite.com — which I’m debut-directing, and which I’m hoping will become a classic in what I’m calling the post-modern “Soft” Neo-Noir movie genre. Never heard of it? That’s likely because it’s, I believe, unique to contemporary motion pictures.


One of the great challenges to creating a new film genre is the musical accompaniment. The big question at JET Progress — https://jet-progress.yolasite.com — r...
