Good luck at the Oscars, Martin Desmond Roe!

“Buzkashi Boys” nominated for an Academy Award

I wish the best of luck to Martin Desmond Roe who co-produced “Buzkashi Boys”, a film nominated in the Best Short Film category at the 85th Academy Awards.

I had the pleasure of working with Martin on “The City of Lost Souls” trailer.

Set against the dramatic landscape of contemporary Afghanistan and the National sport of Buzkashi – a brutal game of horse polo played with a dead goat – Buzkashi Boys tells the coming of age story of two best friends, a charismatic street urchin and a defiant blacksmith’s son, who struggle to realize their dreams as they make their way to manhood in one of the most war-torn countries on Earth. Shot on location in Kabul city by an alliance of Afghan and international film makers, Buzkashi Boys is a look at the life that continues beyond the headlines of war in Afghanistan.

Good luck, Martin!

Edouard Brenneisen wraps up the score to “Tess the Inventor”

“Tess the Inventor” is a wrap

Marking his third collaboration with writer/director/producer Jacquelien Gault of Jackal Films, the film depicts the adventures of a twelve-year-old Victorian genius plunged into the post-apocalyptic future of 2013, she hasn’t seen a single human being in the two months since her arrival.

Living on tins of beans, improving technology with her steampunk sensibilities, avoiding packs of mutant dogs – it’s all a little much to handle by one’s self.

So she scavenges parts from deserted shops and uninhabited homes and builds a friend; the steam-powered man, Electric Bob.

Together, they’ll travel across the empty landscape to match wits with bandits, hackers, and a CEO with entitlement issues.

Looking for answers to questions as big as the Universe.

To Tess, one thing is clear – if she wants a way home, she’ll have to build it herself…
