3rd Ward (map)
A new exclusive Moviehouse experiment in video and sound. First, three filmmakers: stop-motion animator Nathan Punwar, illustrator Kieran O’Hare, and video artist Manuela Viera-Gallo create new silent films. Then three composers: VJ Clay Franklin, Phil Weinrobe and Michael Boss each orchestrate a separate soundtrack for each film. The results will screen in succession in one very tasty night of three films each with three different soundtracks. Experience firsthand the collaboration of sound, video and a bit of experimentation.
