I’ve seen some bull**** over the past 17 years since I started Hollywood 27, but it’s the things that have happened in 2014-15 that might have irritated me the most. Let’s get to it. Get your popcorn ready…
The Martin Luther King Jr Trailer for PYRITE. In this more experimental preview, the content largely focuses on Chicago’s West Side and the havoc wreaked shortly after Martin Luther King Jr’s murder back in April 1968. I edited this one personally, and it’s my way of paying homage to the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Second PYRITE video to add to the mix, this is actually the original trailer that’s been circulating for a while on the net. The all-new trailers are on tap next, but I hope everyone still enjoys the original here.
We’re releasing a bunch of new videos for PYRITE over the next two weeks, and this revamped independent film Soundtrack Preview Video kicks things off right. Listen to clips from the PYRITE soundtrack, including new music from Emmet Swimming, Phil Doyle, and Macnard — while viewing images from the film.
