Ghost, Live in Pittsburgh 4-15-12

Well, after 6 months of trying to see one of my favorite new bands, the stars and planets finally came into alignment. Sunday, Mrs. Highbury and I made the trip to Pittsburgh to see Ghost open for Opeth and Mastodon at Stage AE. And I must say, we were not disappointed. Outside of having the short opening set of only 30 minutes, they played most of their songs from their release, Opus Eponymous, and they sounded absolutely amazing. (To be fair, Opeth and Mastodon also sounded great, but I actually went just to see the opening band. Desperate? Certainly. Worth the trip? Absolutely!)

I was snapping away madly throughout the set, only to have a bouncer come over and tell me in a not-so-friendly tone, "no more pictures." I told him that the doorman let me in with my camera, but he was having nothing of it. Whatever. I still had the upper hand, as I rattled off 75 pics before getting shut down...

"Based on a true fairy tale"

As the silhouette of a lonely girl runs through the woods, something in the shadows is lurking her.

RED is an animated short film, which presents a new version of the classic tale "Little Red Riding Hood" by Charles Perrault. The directors Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot explore more thoroughly the drama, horror and realism of the story. A journey of feelings and moments, with visual and musical elements existing only to carry a clear and strong narrative.
In RED the directors based on traditional shadows animation, giving it a new perspective by using technology to create a new concept, while maintaining the visual and narrative force of the classic technique.

The production of the film was done almost entirely by the two directors and musician/composer Manuel Borda, who completed the story by reinforcing all emotions through it.
