And the winner is…


…going to have to wait, along with the rest of us, to hear the news.

If you’ve been here awhile you’ve seen some examples of el Guapo’s artistic talents, from kaleidoscopic romance to abstract video art at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (here and here).

Those last two were contest winners. The latest work sent off to a contest (on a much larger scale) is a collaboration with a graduate film-scoring student at Berklee Valencia, Joe Williams, and his wife Jessi Glover Williams. Joe wrote all the music and directed the performance recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London; Jessi found most of the visuals and together they created the story line. El Guapo edited, refined, added effects–in short, brought the special sauce.

We’re in the suspense stage right now–the winner of the CineSpace contest (sponsored by NASA) won’t be announced until late September or October. You’re getting it now because I didn’t want to wait until then to share it. If you hate suspense, I apologize. You can forget all about it until the fall. If you want to wait with us, though, feel free to send good vibes this way!

    • They did great work, didn’t they? I imagine the competition will be stiff, but this was a really strong effort, something they can be proud of.
