primary instinct

Last year, with the help of some /Film readers, I received Kickstarter funding to direct a concert film with actor Stephen Tobolowsky. The film played at a few film festivals, but the question quickly became: what was going to happen next for The Primary Instinct?

I estimate 70% of the process of releasing a movie is just getting the film made; the other 30% is getting the film seen. That’s why I’m really pleased to announce that FilmBuff — the same distribution company that released great indie films like Exit Through the Gift Shop and The Internet’s Own Boy, will be distributing The Primary Instinct. Hit the jump for more details, plus the full press release.

Time Lyra Final Vimeo (For Real) Frame

Last fall, I shared a video of myself playing a looping cello version of “Time” from Hans Zimmer’s score for Inception. The response was amazing and I felt so encouraged that I actually went into a studio and recorded an entire EP of looping cello music (on sale today!).

To promote the EP, I wanted to create music videos for several tracks of the EP that were visually striking. So I teamed up with my partner-in-crime, dancer Danaë Montreuil again, and we went to Versatile Arts in Seattle to film a music video over the course of several hours using a lyra, or aerial hoop. The constantly-spinning lyra serves as a visual callback to the final moments of Inception, when Dom Cobb spins his totem and walks away before learning his fate.

I think Danaë was able to create something wonderful out of this project. Hit the jump to check out the video and learn more about how it was made.
