The first of my Bad Robot Action Movie Sundance mini-films. All fest I am going to be taking little clips of people, places and things and blowing them up, dropping giant rocks on them or rolling cars into them.
Not because I don’t like them, but because it’s fun! For example, I am very font of both Mynette and Dana, but it’s funny. Get it?

Here’s a video clip of Michael Giacchino conducting an orchestra playing a suite from the landmark TV series Lost. My apologies for the orientation. It was a combination of a new phone (first video shot on it) and being entranced by the music!
One of the great things about awards season is that studios and production companies, at least the cool ones, come up with creative and entertaining ways to draw attention to their films that often also celebrate the art of those films. On Saturday I was privileged enough to be invited to one of these events and this one took place on the rooftop patio at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions in Santa Monica.
The event was a cocktail reception and featured a mini-concert by an orchestra conducted by Oscar-winning (Up)composer Michael Giacchino. Selections from Super 8, Star Trek, Lost and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocolwere played and the musicians were amazing.
