LAGO FILM FESTIVAL - Directing Video for HIJK & Artists in Residence!
Feb 21st, 2013
HELLO EVERYBODY !!! For this edition of the News, I'm taking all of us into new, exciting, unprecedented and uncharted Enrique Gonzalez Muller territory..... 
             !!!!  FILM  MAKING  !!!!
I finally took the visual plunge and Directed a Music Video for my Indie Rock friends HIJK. Mike Mahony (bass player for HIJK) and I co-wrote, co-directed the video for their song PAPER BOAT and just a month after its completion, it won Top Prize at the De Young Museum's "Un-Vusual" Contest here in San Francisco as part of their Gilbert and George Video retrospective. As with all First-Time-Attempts... it took a whole lot of trial, error, sweat and buckets of blood to get it done, but I'm terribly happy and proud of the end result.      
In other Cinematic news... I just came back from the gorgeous, magical and tiny little town of Revine Lago, Italy where I attended the most amazing Film Festival = LAGO FILM FEST .WOW. DOUBLE WOW. 

I was invited to be part of the Jury and tutor their YOUNG ARTIST RESIDENCE program. The Festival was amazing, the Residence was a big success, but the one thing that truly won my heart over was ..... The People. It's very rare to find such an inspired, committed, alive, self-motivated, intelligent, interesting and in-sync staff. Thank you Viviana, Roberto, Lisa, Emiliano, Elisa, Mattia, Anna, Livio, Sabrina and EVERYBODY else (the entire list would be way too long to mention...!) who made this experience such an INSPIRING endeavor. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
