A New Beginning

Dear everyone,

It’s been a while since I wrote my last post, and although I feel slightly guilty, I really needed to take a break from the internet and focus on my personal life.

It’s been a while, but not much has changed: I’m currently mixing my album Fear & Agony and I’m desperately trying to produce my film Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts. I’m also working on a new album and a new film, but it’s too early to talk about that.

For those who are wondering what happened to Fear & Agony, let me just say that I was delayed because of the crowdfunding campaign of my film and other personal issues. I really wanted to release it this summer but, unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Hopefully, I’ll be able to release it pretty soon.

As for Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts, I don’t want to say too much, but… I probably found a way to make it, which means that, at last, I will be able to use the funds I gathered thanks to the fantastic people who helped me.

And that leads me to something else:

Dear Indiegogo supporters, I haven’t forgotten about you. I rejoice when I think of your kindness and your generosity, and it’s time for you to see my Agalmatophilia-related short film Introducing Adam. If you’ve received this post by email, have a look at the bottom of the page.

For those who don’t know, Introducing Adam is a short film I made during the crowdfunding campaign of Agalmatophilia: ATITA. It’s related to the feature, but I think it could be enjoyed as a standalone work anyway. 

I consider it my best short film so far, although it’s one of the least accessible, I’m afraid. Hugh Cannon, the actor who plays Adam, is simply extraordinary, and he’s the main reason the film actually works.

Introducing Adam will also be released on Vimeo and YouTube in the near future so, even if you weren’t one of the crowdfunding campaign backers, you’ll have the opportunity to watch it soon.

One more thing. I know that in my last post I said that I would create two different sections on gavinomarianomura.com - News and Art Journal - but, as it often happens, I changed my mind. I don’t want to have an impersonal News section: I want to tell you what’s happening using my own words. That’s the beauty of the Internet, isn’t it?

Take care,

Gavino

P.s. Please listen to the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album Ghosteen:

I’d love to know what you think of it.
