Street trumpet – New Orleans, Jazzfest
new release movie

This fellow is the lead trumpeter for a street jazz band called "To be continued brass band" that was playing on the corner of Bourbon & Canal streets in New Orleans, last week while I was visiting.

The band was initially formed by young men from the 7th and 9th Wards as a way to breakout of their neighborhood cycle of drugs, violence and jail in 2002.

An award winning documentary movie was released in 2008. The film From the Mouthpiece on Back documents the band’s rebirth after Hurricane Katrina to its now world touring schedule.

I was truly lucky to capture several images of these wonderful musicians on a street corner the night before Jazzfest began in New Orleans.

Captured with: D700, 70-200mm @ f/2.8, 1/100, ISO 2500, 200mm. Hand held, ambient light. Processed with Lightroom and Nik’s Silver Efex Pro.

ION Festival Introduces Machinima, a New Blending of Film, Computer Technology










(PRWEB) July 24, 2005

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 20, 2005 – Looking to nurture the brilliance and innovation found within the convergence of animation, gaming and film, the upcoming 2005 ION International Animation, Games and Film Festival features an all new competition category entitled Machinima.

This groundbreaking form of filmmaking utilizes computer game technology to shoot films in the virtual reality of a game engine, said festival founder Chris Davies, adding that it will bring another unusual dimension to a blossoming festival now entering into its second year. The festival will also feature its usual categories of animation; live-action short films, short documentaries, game trailers, music videos, TV spots, movie trailers and films made for mobile devices such as cell phones and PDAs.

“Our mandate is to discover and nurture the brilliance and innovation found within the convergence of animation, gaming and film,” Davies said. “In order to best do this, we have also created a summit where the challenges and potential of such innovation can be explored as well as examined by industry professionals, creative entrepreneurs and forward thinking story-tellers. ION encourages the boldness and courage integral to vision. We support creative risk-takers by exhibiting their work and we honor industry veterans who have blazed the trails for them to do so.”

This year’s ION International Animation, Games and Film Festival will take place in early December, in Los Angeles. Organizers are currently looking for submissions in all categories. To make a submission visit http://www.ionfilmfestival.com.

Last yearÂ’s inaugural ION program included Chris Landreth’s Ryan, which won ION’s International Animation of the Year Award and went on to win the Best Animated Short Oscar. The fest also screened Bill Plympton’s Academy Award-nominated toon short, Guard Dog, and featured the Los Angeles premiere of PlymptonÂ’s new feature, Hair High. Judges named LucasArtsÂ’ Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Game of the Year.

Call for entries:

Submission guidelines are available at http://www.ionfilmfestival.com. Submissions are now being accepted for the 2005 ION International Animation, Games and Film Festival. Regular submission deadline is August 8, 2005. Late extended deadline is September 9, 2005. Over 100 films, including world and U.S. premieres, will be shown during the festival, as well as new game releases. this competitive event is open to the following categories: animation; short films; short docs; Machinima; game trailers; music videos; TV spots / commercials; movie trailers; mobile videos & films. Additional information about ION and the 2005 ION Festival is available at http://www.ionfilmfestival.com.

About the ION Festival:

The ION Animation, Games and Film Festival showcases and promotes high-quality animation, short films, Machinima, music videos, game trailers and games by filmmakers and gaming companies from around the world, and it is the first festival and conference dedicated to the merging business of animation, gaming and filmmaking. Its screenings, forums and focused networking allow creative and executive entrepreneurs in the animation, electronic gaming and filmmaking industries to explore and exchange ideas on the themes, issues and trends driving converging media production.

It is a festival bonanza for Delhi based filmmaker Nikhil Sablania and a moment to cherish. Nikhil, a young filmmaker, is going to represent India at the 9th International Student Film & Video Festival (ISFVF) of Beijing Film Academy (BFA), Beijing, China with his film Siski (The Sigh).

The Beijing Film Academy is a state-run film institute in Beijing, China. The film school is the largest institution specialized in the tertiary education for film and television production in Asia and has earned international recognition for its achievements in film production.

Nikhil Sablania’s short film Siski (the sigh) would be showcased along with 46 other films from different nations. The film was made as his academic project at one of the premier film institute in India, ‘Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute” (SRFTI) an institute run by Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Government of India.

It is a moment of pride for all Indians and a happy moment for Nikhil Sablania, a Dalit filmmaker, for whom it is a dream come true. Speaking about his film Nikhil said, “I always loved horror films. When I got into the film institute it was my dream to make a horror film, but there were many obstacles. First the duration of thirty minutes was not sufficient as we are used to watching feature length horror movies where the first thirty to forty minute are only to establish the horror feeling. Second, it was a challenge to make a horror film with a limited budget & time. And lastly, there always the risk of an intended horror film turning into a comedy (he laughs). But I am happy that the film has been appreciated by the Beijing Film Academy and by the global audience and so I feel satisfied with my work and it makes me even more passionate to make more good films in the future.”

His film Siski (The Sigh) is a twenty nine minutes short horror film telling the story of a young couple who shift into a new house and find themselves in an array of supernatural incidents that unveil a painful and horrific story, and this story changes their lives. The film is written & directed by Nikhil Sablania, the Cinematography is by Vinod Veerakumar, Sound by Ratheesh Ravindran & Editing by Shubhojeet Bhattacharjee. Sudhir Raut, Sanchita Das, Arindam Saha & Riya Podar are main cast of the film & Music is composed by Bhaskar.

The film also got international recognition last year when it became the opening film of the horror section at 13th Portobello Film Festival, London, UK, the biggest independent film competition in UK.
