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…..

Thrilled to announce that the film will be at the Guild Cinema in Albuquerque, New Mexico for three nights, the weekend of March 8-10.  The Guild is my favorite kind of theater, run by and for true film lovers. It’s the only real art house left in Albuquerque, and I’m delighted they’re going to show Deconstructing Dad, and equally delighted that I’m going to be able to attend in person for the Friday and Saturday night screenings — we’ll be doing Q&As after the shows, and following the independent filmmaker’s rules of the road I’ll have DVDs for sale.

The Guild is located at 3405 Central Avenue NE Albuquerque, NM in the heart of the historic Nob Hill district, and the phone number is (505) 255-1848.    

So if you’re located anywhere near Albuquerque, hope to see you there!

John Ewing, Associate Director, Film at the Cleveland Museum of Art

The Cleveland Museum of Art possesses one of the oldest museum film programs in the United States. and is a  major year-long presence that attracts thousands of people to the museum. They present at least two different feature films every week (on Wednesday nights, Fridays nights, or Sunday afternoons) and I’m honored that they’ve chosen my film to be one of them.  Many thanks to John Ewing, Associate Director for Film at the museum for seeking the film out by contacting me.

Again, though I’d love to visit Cleveland as haven’t been there in awhile, my current schedule just doesn’t allow for it, but hope you can make it!

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….

Downbeach Cinefest — Atlantic City — Friday, October 14th

8 10 2011

Back to New Jersey but not Asbury Park, a very different Jersey Shore town — Atlantic City and the Downbeach Film Festival.  It’s Friday October 14th at about 6pm (it’s part of a block of films that starts at 5pm, see this link to festival website for details) and the venue is The Screening Room located on the 13th floor of the Ocean Tower at the Resorts Hotel, and panel discussions will be held in The Director’s Room. The festival’s mission statement is: We are rooted in the celebration of film, and the creation of a forum where filmmakers can exhibit their work. The festival promotes new films, as well as filmmakers and actors all in an effort to celebrate the art form of moviemaking. Sounds good to me, and I will be there, and as an added bonus, I’ll be joined by Jeff Winner of the Raymond Scott Archives, who is a major character in the film.  Jeff has encyclopedic knowledge of Raymond Scott lore and legend, so it’s always extra special when he can attend a screening.  We’ll both be available after the screening for a Q&A.  And another bonus, this is likely the only public screening where attendees will also be able to gamble at will after the screening, so it’s truly a unique event!

Additionally, there’s a festival related preview interview with me on radio station WVUD Sunday night October 9th, hosted by George Stewart, who hosts a weekly show on the station and is the person who first contacted me about the festival.  It’s available on the air and online.  Many thanks to George and William Sokolic of the festival for making this all happen.

And looking back for a moment I had a great time over the weekend of October 1-2 at the All Tomorrow’s Parties “I’ll Be Your Mirror” festival in Asbury Park NJ, thanks again to Deborah Higgins and Barry Hogan, the festival organizers for a wonderful couple of days. And thanks too to Aidan Flax-Clark of Lapham’s Quarterly, who brought the film to ATP’s attention, and to Abbey Lustgarten and Jason Altman of the Criterion Collection for including the film in their curated film section at the festival.
