In case you haven’t heard, my latest doc “FOSSE:PRELUDE” (featuring one of my personal heroes, dance legend ANN REINKING) is set to premeire at the Big Bear Lake Film Fest.  Filming this was by far one of my favorite filmmaking experiences, and Ann is even more amazing in person than you could possibly imagine.  The film was shot in the fall of 2009 when Ann partnered with Chicago choreographer Melissa Thodos to combine three historic Bob Fosse dances (Mexican Breakfast, Tijuana Shuffle, and Cool Hand Luke) together with original Reinking choreographic transitions as a new unified presentation called THE FOSSE TRILOGY.  The result is “FOSSE:PRELUDE”, a short documentary designed to accompany THE FOSSE TRILOGY during its performance season, and which is now making its standalone film premiere at the Big Bear Lake Film Festival (California), on September 17th – 19th, 2010.  The film is presently scheduled to play as part of the documentary shorts block on September 18th, 2010 @ 12:30 -2:30 PM, in the “Perfoming Arts Green Room”.
