Very exciting news regarding the Sci-Fi short film VOYAGER that Brian scored as part of the University of Arizona film scoring workshop back in April. VOYAGER has been accepted into the largest short film festival in the world for its world premiere. The prestigious Los Angeles International Short Film Festival later this month.
Voyager will open the festival in program number 1 at 1pm on Thursday July 21, 2011 at the Laemmle Sunset 5 Theaters in Hollywood. (8000 Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood CA 90046). Tickets (which go on sale beginning July 14th) are $12 per person for each short film "program"...which will buy you a screening to about 60-90 minutes of the best short films from around the world.
Brian will be in attendance supporting the film as will director Jared Potter who will be traveling down from Seattle that week. So...for anyone who can come out on a Thursday afternoon to support the film and see it...please do come by.
One of the challenges with opening the festival in program #1 is that you have to get the word out to everyone to come see the screening before the festival begins via the internet and other marketing tools, rather than inviting everyone attending the festival at the various social events that take place all week long. So please help spread the word.
More information on the film can be found at the film's new official website: www.voyagerfilm.com (This website should go live any day now).
Below is a short trailer director Jared Potter put together for the festival. The film is already generating some preliminary buzz by the few industry folks who have privately seen it thus far. And Jared's incredible CGI work in Voyager has certainly impressed some important industry folks. A glimpse of some of that work can be seen in the trailer below. The film will also premiere in the LA Short fest with a new surround sound mix by sound designer Lisa Fowle at Dragonfly Sound. This film is going to look and sound amazing.
Brian is extremely excited to have contributed the score to this impressive project. The last film Brian scored that premiered at the LA Shorts fest was The Rece!pt in 2005 which went on to win Best Comedy at that festival, qualifying it for Academy consideration in 2005.
