Melbourne Australia Screening June 2nd

22 05 2013

ACMIG’day, and delighted to announce that the film will be shown down under on Sunday, June 2nd at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image as part of their Jazz on Film series.  CMI is located in the heart of Melbourne’s famous meeting place, Federation Square, and was founded to celebrate , explore and promote the cultural and creative richness of the moving image in all its forms — film, television and digital culture.  Of course we here at scottdoc.com are thrilled to be included in this program, and it represents a new milestone in the film’s history as this is the most far flung event to date.

The screening will be held at 2pm at the ACMI theatres within the centre complex, here’s a link to theACMI page for the screening.  Tickets start at $11 for members, regular price is $15.

Wish I could be there, but it’s a long and expensive trip so unfortunately I can’t be.  But if you’re in the area hope you can make it.

Thanks to Centre Programmer Spiro Economopoulos for seeking the film out for this series…..

Walt Disney Concert Hall show in LA: Oingo Boingo’s Steve Bartek & Ego Plum November 9th, 8:30 pm

8 11 2012
Sorry to be a bit late with this, but I have a good excuse as the Hurricane Sandy has complicated my life recently!  For everyone in and around L.A. some exciting news: REDCAT, CalArts’ downtown center for contemporary arts is presenting,  in cooperation with JEFF E. WINNER of The Raymond Scott Archives, a special evening celebrating Raymond Scott. Machine-Man: The Musical Mayhem of Raymond Scott will be held at the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater on Friday, November 9 at 8:30 pm.  (Jeff is also co-producer of the film and also a major character in it and out of it!) ,

In this unprecedented celebration of Scott’s polymorphic career, former OINGO BOINGO Short Term Loans UK co-founder and guitarist STEVE BARTEK and his band (including other Oingo Boingo alums) find new takes on the composer’s early cartoon classics, while composer EGO PLUM’s ensemble re-envisions Scott’s farsighted electronica. Joining in is the Rogue Artists Ensemble who will stage a first-ever live interpretation of a vintage Scott film collaboration with MUPPETS creator JIM HENSON.

AND though I can’t be there there will be a merchandise table and the DVD of the film will be for sale there.  Hope you can make it!

Film Opening in NYC July 13th!

6 06 2012

Week of NYC Theater Screenings: July 13th-19th

Further Update–July 17th–

* Q&As with filmmaker STAN WARNOW–The Q&A’s we did over the weekend were such a hit that we’ve added more for the next 3 days:

7/17, 7/18 and 7/19 (Tuesday-Thursday) after 7:30pm show.

Hope to see you there!

 

Update–Breaking News–July 12th–we just got an excellent review in the New York Times: http://movies.nytimes.com/2012/07/13/movies/deconstructing-dad-recalls-raymond-scott-musical-inventor.html.  And for all the latest info go to our Facebook event page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/436981592988640/

——————————————————————

I’m delighted to announce that the film is opening on Friday July 13th at the Quad Cinema in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village (34 West 13th Street between 5th & 6th avenues). The film will be screened several times a day, for a week, through July 19th.  The QUAD has been owned by the same family since 1972, and attracts passionate moviegoers eager to see the best in independent, foreign and documentary films.  It books films from major distributors such as as Miramax, Sony Pictures Classics, Fox Searchlight, and many more, and now us (not that we’re a major distributor!).

Quad LogoAs you can see we’re not superstitious — I kind of like the idea that we’re opening on a Friday the 13th, and plan to make it a good luck day for the film!  And given that the Quad is on 13th street it seems particularly apt to me to open the film on a Friday the 13th.  And now that I’ve spun it all together, it will be easy for everyone who reads this post to remember the date and place, won’t it?

We’re getting a lot of good publicity and hope to see you at the Quad–I’m doing Q&A’s along with co-producer Jeff Winner and special guests Friday and Saturday after the 7:30 and 9:50 shows, and Sunday after the 3pm matinee.  Again , hope you can make it  to the Quad for any show during the period from July 13th-19th, it will mean a lot for the future of the film.  Thanks….

Two Upcoming Screenings–And Sensoria Report

12 05 2010

There are two screenings happening this  week. One is at the Park City Film Music Festival--a ground breaking event dedicated to all aspects of music in film, everything from music based documentaries to music videos and feature films that use music as an essential element. The film is being shown at the Egyptian Theater in Park City, Utah on Wednesday May 19th at 6:15 pm, and I will be there. Here’s a link to the festival site, you have to then use the pull down menu to get to the specific page for May 19th: http://www.pcfmf.com So if you’re in that area, hope to see you there.

Then it’s back home for an “industry” screening on Friday night May 21 very close to where I live. It’s at St. Thomas Aquinas College in Sparkill in Rockland County NY, and is sponsored by the recently formed Rockland Filmmaker’s Group, which is part of Rivertown Film. And….it’s free!   For more info go to http://www.rivertownfilm.org/rockland_filmmakers.html

Finally, a brief report on the screening at the Sensoria  Festival in Sheffield England on April 26–it was a lovely event at another wonderful music film festival.  There was a most enjoyable Q&A afterwards with Martyn Ware and I met lots of different people, including several Americans who had come over to participate in various festival events.   Many thanks to Jo Wingate and Nigel Humberstone for producing such a terrific music/film festival.





Library of Congress Screening/Sensoria

14 04 2010

Well, despite fears of nuclear summit gridlock the April 12 screening as part of the Jazz in the Spring series  at the Library of Congress turned out to be a rousing success.  The theater was almost full, and many of the attendees were Raymond Scott aficionados, but there were also several newbies who reacted enthusiastically to the film.  Afterwards there was lively Q&A.  All in all a wonderful night for the film and for me personally.  Thanks again to Larry Applebaum and the LOC for hosting the event.  And for those of you in the area, there are two more films remaining in this year’s series: http://www.loc.gov/rr/perform/concert/0910-jazzfilm.html

And for those of you in the UK, a bit of a reminder, the film will be having its UK premiere at the Sensoria Festival of Music and Film in Sheffield on April 27th.  This is a really cool festival and I’m very excited to be a part of it–I will be there for the screening and discussion afterward with Martyn Ware.  http://tinyurl.com/y7ep8xo.  Update April 21–of course there’s some risk of my travel being canceled due to this pesky volcano situation in Iceland, but at the moment things are looking up for our Saturday departure….
