‘Remembering Anarcha’ is out today!

Today, May 4, 2021, is the official release day for Remembering Anarcha! The film my team and I started working on back in 2018 is now publicly available to purchase on many video-on-demand platforms across the U.S. and Canada.

You can find it on Apple TV and iTunes (special thanks to everyone who pre-ordered!), Vimeo on Demand, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft, some cable and satellite VOD channels, and more!

There are also DVDs and Blu-rays available through online retailers.

Check out this post at TerribleMasterFilms.com for some links.

On this day, I’d like to share a portion of a recent Facebook post:

I want to take a moment to give a shout out to a few people. First and foremost: Michelle Browder. Her art, passion, and activism inspired me to make this film, and she continues to educate and raise awareness about Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey through her “Mothers of Gynecology” project. (Be sure to check out https://www.anarchalucybetsey.org/)

I also want to give a shout out to my fellow producers: C. DeWayne Cunningham and Royce Williams. They came on board knowing that this was a passion project with no budget, and they have been supportive every step of the way.

And through this project, I made friends with author J.C. Hallman. His research is fascinating, and I’m looking forward to reading his forthcoming book “The Anarcha Quest.”

Thanks to everyone who has supported this project and pre-ordered the film. I hope you both enjoy it and learn something new. I appreciate the support. Much love.

‘Remembering Anarcha’ original score by Glorious 70mm

a3419606505_16

Back in July, I announced the completion of my new feature documentary film Remembering Anarcha which examines the controversial history of Dr. James Marion Sims and the enslaved African women he experimented on to become known as the “father of modern gynecology.”

The film was produced by myself (Terrible Master Films,) C. DeWayne Cunningham (Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions,) and Royce Williams (803 Films.)

I also wrote and recorded some instrumental pieces for the score under my Glorious 70mm project moniker. That music is now available on Bandcamp.

 

Like all of the Glorious 70mm releases, I have this one set as “name your price,” even if zero. Yes, that means you can type in “$0.00” and download the music. However, if you’d like to help cover some film festival submission fees by throwing in a couple of bucks, my team and I would be grateful.

Keep up with the film’s progress on social media – Facebook/Twitter/Instagram.

Thanks for your support!

Many thanks to RSVP Magazine for including me on “The List” for their Sept/Oct issue!

Read the article here.

You’ll also see my friend Charles Williams of Lush Photography on there. He did the producer headshots for the Remembering Anarcha team (myself, C. DeWayne Cunningham, and Royce Williams.)

In other news, I spent this past weekend in Alex City, AL helping on a film project. It’s a short horror film called The Munchie II, written and directed by Cedric Hatcher. I was a gaffer on this project, mainly, but I also helped as 2nd AC and boom op when needed, and they even let me be camera op on one scene. Great cast and crew. Fun times.

Aaaaaand… tomorrow (Friday the 13th!) BARRENS is playing with Abusements and the Chodes (from Panama City, FL) at Bomber’s Pub. Details here.

This weekend, I’m joining my friend Mike Slaten for a couple of shows in the Huntsville/Madison area:

Fri., Oct. 26 at Wish You Were Beer – Campus 805

Sat., Oct. 27 at Rocket City Craft Beer

Come hang out!

In other news, my documentary Commit to the Song: The Joe Thomas Jr. Guitar Pull should be available for rent or purchase from Amazon on November 1. If you haven’t seen the trailer, here it is:

Next week, I’m serving as Director of Photography for a short film, along with acting in one scene. Also, I’m working with C. DeWayne Cunningham and Royce Williams on two documentary projects – one is still filming and one is now in the early editing stages. And I helped both of them and writer/director Sharisma Bell recently with an upcoming web series they’re producing. More on all of those soon.

Also recently, I was part of a music and film panel that was sponsored by 21 Dreams Arts & Culture Collective as part of this year’s Flight of the Arts MGM. Many thanks to Kalonji Gilchrist and 21 Dreams for their work in promoting both art and artist.

The recent Barrens show with The Ghost of Daniel Pratt and The Goddamn Rights was a lot of fun. Next Barrens show is coming up Dec. 14. Here’s a clip of a new song:

I think that’s it for now. Thanks for reading.

‘Translation’ is up!

Last year, writer/director Royce Williams discussed shooting a horror/thriller short with a voodoo aspect to it, and he talked to me about being cinematographer for it. It’s now public and available for viewing. Check it out on YouTube.

(When you get to the credits, you might recognize another name. The score you hear throughout the film was done by Shane Gillis of Foolish Henry Films, who scored both Death to the World and Spiritus. If you haven’t heard his new album Portal, then be sure to check that out on his Bandcamp. It’s really good.)
