Another Art of Dreaming Review

A new review is in for The Art of Dreaming. This one from Gareth Mohen at Gorilla Film Magazine:

Take the time to experience this film. It is not just for watching. Let it be as though you are in the dreams with Maya. Only then will the film make sense and remind us of all the madness we experience in our own rapid eye movement sleep. It’s a solid film that acutely captures the restlessness of thought we experience when plagued by grief or crisis.

Zompire Vixens From Pluto!

ZompireLogoZompire Vixens from Pluto is a campy and fun web-series being written and produced by my friend, Jenna Payne, who also produced my mini-feature, The Art of Dreaming.
Foxy zompires invade Brooklyn in retaliation for Pluto losing intergalactic aid after it was demoted from Planet status.

Last spring she presented a live stage reading of the first 6 episodes, and now she’s releasing one episode per week as we approach Halloween. I helped out by handling the editing on these 6 episodes:

New Review for The Art of Dreaming

The Art of Dreaming just got another great review, this time from Richard Propes at The Independent Critic.

Richard praised the film and script for striking a difficult balance between the human and the transcendent. He particularly singled out Kate Villanova for her lead role as Maya, calling her performance “disciplined and emotionally resonant,” and Walker Hare for his “uniquely mysterious” performance as Demon.

He also gave props to our Director of Photography Che Broadnax (“offers the film a rich palette that feels both natural and oozing with mystery”) and our composer Lenny Gonzalez (“gives the film just the perfect dose of edginess”).

Congratulations to all of you, and to our entire hard-working cast and crew!

The Art of Dreaming Gets Rave Review

The Art of Dreaming just got a great review from Rouge Cinema reviewer Philip Smolen.

“I love dream vs. reality films and writer/director Bob DeNatale has made an eerie, enticing entry with his new 40 minute short film “The Art of Dreaming.” It projects a vibe very similar to the old classic “Carnival of Souls” (1962) and immediately got under my skin. DeNatale develops a very creepy and believable world where dreams and reality co-exist and blend together. Like most good entries in this genre, DeNatale keeps you guessing whether Maya is in the real world or the world of her dreams, and this inability to distinguish the two adds immensely to the mood and enjoyment of the film.”

 
He also called our lead, Kate Villanova as Maya Rivers, “perfect.” Can’t get better than that.

Congratulations to the cast and crew who all worked so hard to make the movie so good! Check out the review, then check out the film!
