Episode 31: Jennifer Milligan - "The Fifth Element"

8/30/2018
More
Martin Scorsese talked about film makers, at times, smuggling social messages within their work by artistic design. In 1997, Director Luc Besson crafted such an effort. ”The Fifth Element” flew under the radar and served a commentary purpose questioning war and corporate culture. Each viewing reveals a layer previously missed. Presented in a science fiction format, this movie does have many teachable and cautionary lessons. Fort Hayes alumni are everywhere. We stick together, help each...

Episode 30: Paul Cunningham - "The Crow"

7/14/2018
More
We continue our quest for what happens when we die with this episode. “The Crow” furthers my romance with the role of the revenant; a soul that was put down so brutally that it cannot rest until things are set right. Known for the tragic loss of actor/martial artist Brandon Lee during production, this film is eerie yet reassuring. If merciless cruelty befalls us as we pass, is it really possible to gain divine justice? This story explores that avenging fantasy that so many believe is...

Episode 29: Jason Kroninger - "The Lost Boys"

6/19/2018
More
In the heat of the 1987 July sun, “The Lost Boys” came to the theater. Dripping with MTV swagger, it melted screens nationwide, while continuing a string of successful, ‘80’s music video influenced films. That same year, I had become a very pop culture aware future Ft. Hayes student. While flawed, as a pop vampire film, it has grown to iconic status with a soundtrack that bleeds. It’s a great ride, somewhat predictable, but cool as hell… or maybe even cooler. What can I say, Ft. Hayes...

Episode 28b: Eric Gnezda - "The Sound Of Music"

5/22/2018

PART 2 Who hasn’t seen “The Sound of Music”? It’s on TV several times a year on multiple networks. In fact, this Sunday, it’s being re-released in the theaters. Did you sing the songs in school? Maybe you got a part in your High School play. What could be more iconic than this film etched into our memories? It defies introduction, so I won’t try. But, if you haven’t seen it, well you’ll want to after this episode. I learn something with every interaction I have with Eric Gnezda....

Episode 27: Jess Hanks - "Audition"

4/19/2018
More
Every once in a while you see a movie that grabs you and burns its way through your mind. “Audition” is one of those films for me. I hadn’t seen it until now and I know I won’t forget it. It’s a Japanese love story that turns into a psychological thriller, which takes a horror twist, just to end up a love story at the end. Films like this don’t come around often, and this one leaves an imprint. Jess Hanks is an artist with several platforms. He studied acting and spent the necessary...

Episode 26: Shaun Booker - "August Rush"

3/27/2018
More
Sometimes we find needed inspiration from the most simple of concepts. Music connects us. That is the comforting truth that the film “August Rush” carries. With an “Oliver Twist” like tale, we go through a child’s journey to find his parents, and the parent’s journey to find purpose. In 2007, amid personal struggles, “August Rush” was a ray of hope and the positive motivation Shaun Booker needed to persevere. Since that time, Shaun has become an international artist and teaches the...

Episode 25b: TC and Ty - First Year Retrospective

3/1/2018

Part 2 In October of 2016, I reached out to an old Ft. Hayes brother about a project I had wrestled with for over a year. Ty Barnes and I sat down to discuss what would become Moving Music. We now come together to examine how this idea has evolved. In two parts we review and celebrate our first year of 24 episodes. There have been many surprises and we are humbled, beyond words, by what every guest has given us. What started out as a quest to find my artistic self again has turned into...

Episode 24: Elliot Twelvetrees - "Wings of Desire"

1/27/2018
More
In 1998 the film “City of Angels” told the story of an angel who shed immortality in favor of the woman he was guarding. Unaware it was a remake; Moving Music brings me the original. Set in Germany before the fall of the wall, we follow this angel into an awakening, as he indulges his “Wings of Desire”. Directing live television brought many surprises to me. That is how I met the wonderful artist, Ms. Elliot Twelvetrees. She walked into the studio in 1998 and performed in a beautifully...

Episode 23: Bob Hite - "Boyhood"

1/6/2018
More
Every once in a while somebody comes up with an amazing, unique idea for a movie. Richard Linklater designed such an effort by filming the story of a child’s broken home life for 12 consecutive years. The crew and cast signed on for the duration. Continuity in actors and technical aspects assist in the tale of a family just trying to heal and grow up. Whether it’s from a parent’s or child’s path, most can find themselves in this film. “Boyhood” is a movie many of us lived. I met Bob...

The drive-in played kids movies first, and then the “grown up” movie would show. From the backseat of the car, while I pretended to sleep, I caught glimpses of a movie I wasn’t supposed to see. This tale of a gang, fighting their way back home astonished me. In future years, it became a film I could not turn off once it began. “The Warriors” is certainly a movie of it’s time. Set in New York, and colorfully told, it revisits the Greek narrative of “soldiers” battling just to see the sun...

Episode 21: Donna Mogavero - "Secretariat"

11/25/2017
More
Every Kentucky Derby begins with the hope for a Triple Crown winner, of which there have only been 12. The greatest of these may very well have been Secretariat. I am a romantic about the sport, and have great affection for the horses involved. Behind Secretariat’s immense heart is a resilient lady who refused to give up on her dream. Penny Chenery fought family and foe alike to win her race, and ensure her horse could run his. The legend continues to be immortalized with the film...

Episode 20: Will Freed - "Crossroads"

11/11/2017
More
The concept that a deal with the devil could lead to fame and fortune, based on talents lent to you, is not new. Hollywood has done it many ways at various times in cinematic history. However, with the soundtrack efforts of Steve Vai, Ry Cooder, and Arlen Roth, this one is noteworthy. “Crossroads” is a dark film exploring the legend and music of Robert Johnson. This movie begs the question, once a deal of this kind is consummated, can it be reversed? Shaun Booker had been talking about...

Episode 19b: Todd Greer - "U2: Rattle and Hum"

10/28/2017

PART 2 There were few theatrically released concert films in the 1980s, and none that were embraced like U2’s “Rattle and Hum”. While watching the trailer in the theater, I got the same goose bumps Todd Greer recalls and had to see it upon release. It was pure bliss, even to this heavy metal lovin’ teenager. This film delivers both a visual and musical punch with a lot of heart. At times angry, but also with a hopeful tone, as you watch you feel like you are a part of their movement. MTV...

Episode 18: Andy Kuhar - "Singles"

How did you meet the love of your life? Are you still seeking? Did you love someone just to find out they were not “the one”? What kind of comical events or crisis brought you to know a personal connection? Is there really someone for everyone, and how do we find that one soul that completes us? Will that person accept us just how we are? Set in the backdrop of the 90’s Seattle grunge scene, Cameron Crowe’s film “Singles” explores the awkward or unlikely circumstances that allow for these...

Episode 17: Tom Harker - "The Ukulele Man"

To say Moving Music was affected by the passing of Tom “Ukulele Man” Harker would be understating reality. You never anticipate editing words from a person no longer around to hear it in the body. We took a week off to breathe and think. What we came up with, we believe, is appropriate and tender enough to feel right. I have long wanted to get Ty in the other chair for an interview and this seemed like a good start. Between the two of us, it is him most affected by this afterlife...

Episode 16: Tom Harker - "Five Easy Pieces"

9/1/2017

It has been said, each one of us has a gift. These endowments are unique and just as an orchestra collaborates to yield great music, so it should be in our daily encounters. This film, “Five Easy Pieces”, illustrates one man’s struggle to see his gift as a gratuity rather than a cursed burden. Many of us struggle in this way, so instruction is needed. We now offer to you, in a teaching effort, Mr. Tom Harker’s words, as we all attempt to reconcile gift and acceptance. O Captain! My...

PART 2 Chances are you have been affected by an artist that burned out, rather than faded away; the bright promise of a star that quickly emitted too much light. The pain kept within an artist that influenced the rise can assist in the fall. But what happens when an artist is smothered by expectations and not allowed to evolve? When Eddie Wilson from our next film, “Eddie and the Cruisers”, takes the chance to expose his progression only to be rejected, his solution to the dilemma creates...
