ShadowLines: The Day the Music Washed Away | a new documentary by Stanley B. Gill
From Stanley B. Gill comes the story of New Orleans musicians who lost it all ... and still came back to the city that care forgot.
This is a story, a journey, through his hometown of New Orleans, in a quest to find those musicians who made it back - back to the Big Easy. And those, who did not.
"If someone could say they've been to Hell and back - outside of military combat - I certainly could, going through recovery from Katrina, my own personal tragedy and when the levees burst open on my city." - SBG
Much has been said and seen in the media about the disasters - Katrina, Rita, the levee breaks, governmental failures and even the recent Gulf/BP oil spill. However, nothing has been said about the soul of New Orleans which courses through the veins of musicians, tourists and even locals.
The music of New Orleans.
BIOGRAPHIE - For over 29 years, Stanley B. Gill — a New Orleans boy — has worked in Hollywood behind the camera as a writer, director, producer and cinematographer. He has worked in post-production as an editor, sound mixer and re-mastering producer. Mr. Gill has run several industry divisions and companies which clients have included all the major film and television studios: The Walt Disney Studios, NBCUniversal, Twentieth Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks SKG, ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and many more independents.
Raised in New Orleans, he brings his creative and business development talents to bear on the film, television, music and stage communities in Hollywood South, with one mission — to help make Hollywood South THE contender.
Today, as an independent film and television producer, Mr. Gill has leveraged his career, background, skills and experience to launch an Internet start-up — The HollywoodSouth Blog.
"I've always dreamed of producing in Louisiana while strategically leveraging my contacts in the Los Angeles Hollywood community."
As Local Producer for the 48 Hour Film Project in 2007, he "Singlehandedly gave the New Orleans indie film community a collective voice overnight." Mr. Gill spearheaded an international film competition in the post-Katrina New Orleans environment to bring back the independent filmmaking community to the United States' third largest film & television production revenue generating state.
"I have had the honor of working with such Hollywood titans as Orson Welles and John Huston, in the early stages of my career. Our paths crossed while working on various projects. I was too young and naive to know I wasn't 'supposed to speak' with them. So, I spent countless hours just listening to their 'what drives them' stories. I shall never forget my fortuitous opportunities to be blessed by their presence. Their legacies live on in cinematic history."
Hanging his own shingle as an independent film, television and new media producer, New Orleans Moving Pictures Co. was born. Mr. Gill is developing several film, television and new media projects which will be exclusively produced in Louisiana utilizing the talents of Hollywood South.
