I'm starting a new brand of post here, one devoted to goings-on across the web, especially as they relate to independent artists.
Remember, I won't review a trailer or an unfinished film, but I am happy to review completed films, short or feature length, though that may be in a separate post. The Happenings is more for announcements than analysis.
So wish me luck, and pray that I'm not zoned out on meds while writing my blog next week.
Here's a trailer for David's project if you want to share a little love, and give it a shot at getting made:
Item #3: Eleusyve Productions, a community theater company based in Seattle, is presenting the seven plays comprising Aleister Crowley's Rites of Eleusis as musical theater pieces "in a manner that will render them fully accessible to a broad and discriminating audience, using music, light, dance and drama to enhance the poetry and symmetry of the original works."
Check out the web page here. http://www.eleusyve.com/
Item #4: Just received in the mail, from McFarland: Monstrous and Childish Monsters: Essays on Cinema's Holy Terrors. This book, edited by P.J. Bohlmann and Sean Moreland, features essays about Rosemary's Baby, Eraserhead, Frankenstein and other classic horror films.
That's it for now, but let me know what is "happening" in your neck of the woods, particularly if it involves film, TV, horror or science fiction.
In short, I want "The Happenings" to be about you, and your work, so let's see what comes of it.
