My new film, Lowcountry, has its world premiere on Wednesday night. Dan Visconti composed the stunning score "Low Country Haze," which is going to be performed by the SC Philharmonic, conducted by local legend Morihiko Nakahara. All the footage was dug up from the depths of the archives at the Moving Image Research Collections.
As I write this entry, this lovely article is on the front page of the University website. My wife finds it amusing that they would use the term "laid back" to describe me. I insist that it is because I've got my mind on my money and my money on my mind.
Anyway, this is a great way to watch a movie. With a full orchestra. Big. Loud. The music is so good. There will be three other films as well, including one by a luminary former student of mine, Patrick Nugent. And another of the musical pieces is by new Guggenheim fellow Fang Man.
It's going to be a beautiful night. I hope to see you there, come find me and let me know what you think.
