On 7/7/18, 60 people packed the theater at Pittsburgh Filmmakers to see the premiere of Improvising the Divine: the Music of Tom Moran, and it was well received! A memorable experience for the audience, Tom and me. 4+ years of hard work, without a crew, without money paid off big time with all of the accolades we received after the film.
The next step is to submit to film festivals, and eventually make it available to watch online. Updates to come!
As a special treat, Tom Moran played a set on electric sitar after the screening. I had always wanted to do video projection during one of Tom’s live shows, so I put together a video to play during Tom’s last improvised piece. We did not rehearse this – we just let art take its course. And it paid off. Watch the video of the performance here:
