First Documented Music Video Based on novel features Dramatic Trapeze Act

PRESS RELEASE
An historic music video for contemporary gothic suspense, "The House on Black Lake" is scheduled for release late September, 2011.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Aptly titled "Dangerous Shadows", the stylistic video depicts a dramatic scene from the novel. The video opens with a woman being chased through lush landscape as she seeks to escape hooded figures in preparation for what appears to be a pagan ritual, and climaxes with a stunning trapeze act. The piece was filmed by award winning cinematographer Frazer Bradshaw. An evocative orchestral composition with heavy percussion, by Russian filmmaker/music composer Andrew Oudet, lends tension, foreboding, emotional resonance, and effectively stands on its own as downloadable dance or background music.

The video was shot at renowned philosopher/author Sam Keen’s Sky Ranch in Sonoma. Trapeze rig featured is a permanent fixture on the property and home to Trapeze Pro, a prominent Bay Area circus skills school. Professional performers Marek Kaszuba, Tanya Hoover, Keith Hoover, Jake Minkoff, and John Arnst are featured in the flying sequences. In addition, unique, never before performed trapeze tricks, including "The Heroine’s Journey", were created as part of choreography by trapeze trapeze duo Hoover/Kaszuba for interpretation of the novel’s climactic scene.

Author/actress Anastasia Blackwell produced, directed, and performs in video. The ground breaking piece joins a trailer she created for her debut novel, as well as videos and teasers featuring original photography, sound design, and spoken word.

Time will tell if the unique idea will spread to indie authors and publishing houses and create a new genre of music and means of promotion for literature. The potential appears unlimited, with millions of books lining shelves of libraries and online catalogues worldwide, languidly waiting for an infusion of life.

"The House on Black Lake" has been adapted to screenplay and author is in negotiation for rights. To learn more about project and view other videos go to Home Page.
