I created a video about my experience performing in public spaces for a concert I gave at the Hudson Opera House this past June. I included it in my August 8th show at Joe's Pub in NYC. Peter Biskind executive director of FilmColumbia was in the audience and asked to put it in this years festival. FilmColumbia is a wonderful film festival in Chatham, NY. It might be a small town, but thanks to a wonderful community filled with film buffs and many professionals in the cinema world, we are thrilled each October to see firsthand some of the best films to be released throughout the coming year.
I enjoyed watching my film "Inspirations From The Underground" to a packed Crandell Theatre on opening night before the new Dustin Hoffman directed film "Quartet." Funny how after decades of being on stage and only a few years of making video for my website I would be in a movie theatre watching myself up on the big screen. It was quite a thrill.
The film is a short about the story of my life as a performer in the underground of NYC and the people I meet.
