By Friday morning, my sleep schedule was back to normal, and my insides were feeling relatively healthy again. It was time to not only get working on some of the things I’d put off during my two days of illness, but to get ready for the last three days of the Atlanta Film Festival. Friday, April 12 In the morning, I finished post production on the interview I did with […]

As the Atlanta Film Festival transitioned into the week, my approach changed, as well. During the day, the Atlanta Film Society had a selection of panels for their Creative Conference. While I was definitely interested in some of those, I had personal responsibilities I had to take care of during the day, so I would just be sticking to the evening screenings. At least, that was the plan. Monday, April […]

A Movie A Week

As we head into the 11th year of this series, I’m doing more to write more about movies, and older movies, than ever before. I also have more going on with regards to modern movies than I previous have. That’s why, in this space, I may not be holding up to the strict “Movie a Week” ideal I’ve tried to maintain since 2009. I will still keep this as close […]

It’s ironic that, in my 10th year of doing the “Movie a Week” column, not only was I on point with regards to keeping up with the stated idea of reviewing an older movie a week more often than not, but that I also feel like, moving forward, it might be in my best interest to not stress over keeping up with it in 2019.

Music News

It has been quite a while since I posted in this section. Four years, in fact. It is representative of the significant change in focus in my life, and in Sonic Cinema, since I was coming off of taking online courses through the Berklee College of Music for Film & TV Music composition.

It’s been nearly a year since I last updated on Sonic Cinema on my musical exploits. Truth is, I’ve been pretty busy with a lot of balls juggling in the air, so I haven’t been able to update quite as regularly as I’d prefer. But here we are, almost done with the first third of 2015, and it’s definitely been a ride. Last year, most of the year saw my […]
