VCS Radio Symphony -- August 12, 13, and 14, 2019 at 7:00pm -- Brenden Theatres
If you haven't seen a Buster Keaten film, this is the one to start your adventure with one of the most excellent filmmaker comics in history.
This film has it all! Love, betrayal, and redemption, are all rolled up into some of the most inventive comic stunts on the big screen. Filmed in the Sacramento delta waters in 1928, Keaton stuns audiences with tumbling buildings and death-defying visuals that'll keep you at the edge of your seat!
"...some of the best moments in movie history… wildly inventive, increasingly audacious stunts."
---Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
What's even more exciting is that the film will be accompanied LIVE by The VCS Radio Symphony, renown for their groundbreaking film performances. These aspiring artists have produced over 20 major film projects as well as score restorations, orchestrations, and compositions.
VCS alumnus, Evan Losoya is composing the brilliant new musical score.
The film score will be his second major work commissioned by the symphony! Evan was a former student of the VCS Radio Conservatory for ten years, playing the oboe, English horn, and jazz piano, eventually adding composition, orchestration, and film scoring. He graduated in 2017 and is beginning his junior year at UC Santa Barbara studying music composition. Evan's score is a perfect accompaniment to Keaton's physical comedy! How did he find his inspiration? Look below
Evan Losoya is gaining a feel for his new composition of Steamboat Bill Jr. by actually steering a real river steamboat!
Yep, this is the boat he steered!
