Interview: Pamela Moore (Singer/Musician) (September 2017)

Singer, Pamela Moore.
Pamela Moore is a solo musical-artist from Seattle, USA. She also found fame with the band Queensryche in 1988's Operation: Mindcrime. She has also been a great vocalist (in my eyes) and continues to make music - starting in the early 80's with Solo Albums and Musical experience and style changes!

Tell me a bit about the NEW up-and-coming Album?
Well,  without saying too much…  the new album is being mastered right now, design for the cover artwork is underway and once all that is finished we will be announcing the name of the album and a release date with pre sales 3 months prior to the release date.   I’ve invited some stellar musicians to join me and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!  Casey Grillo (Kamelot) on Drums, Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osborne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake) on Bass, Randy Piper (W.A.S.P.) on Guitar and “spoken voice”, and Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) sharing his voice on a duet, with my guitar players and co-writers,  Michael Posch and Craig Church.

What Singers Inspired you growing up?
I was inspired by my cousin, Terri Nunn (Berlin)  Just watching her stage presence and confidence was beyond stunning… she still IS STUNNING, inside and out!   I’ve always been in awe of Paul Rodgers too! But, this question is so difficult because I have so many artists that have inspired me in so many different ways.

You have a Harder Metal sound on Resurrect Me Album... What was your Input?
MY input?  If I’m understanding you correctly perhaps it’s the many years that I worked with Queensryche.  Sharing the stage with Geoff was an embedded offering of inspiration and I would say that rubbed off on me.  But, I’ve always wanted to do a hard rock, metal album and finding the perfect collaboration for that was key.  It just seemed fitting.

Is there anybody you'd Dream to Collaborate with in Music?
Well,  I had a huge dream to work with Chris Cornell.  I can’t believe he is gone… such a loss we won’t ever be able to hear anymore new music from him.  His voice was incredible!  Chris could be gritty, clean, powerful and tender all in one song.  But, his inspiration lives on forever.  RIP Chris Cornell.

Over the Years, how do you feel attitudes to Female Singers have Changed? Positive - I Hope?
I’ve seen a lot of progress over the years as attitudes have changed toward Women In Rock and I would say, artistically, it feels more equal.   But, we still seem to place so much emphasis on how we “look” that some artists (men and women) may get “overlooked” because they don’t fit the “cookie cutter” image.  “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance”. ~ Aristotle.

Trailer Released for: “Mad Women in My Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy” (September 2017)

“Mad Women in My Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy”
Cabaret performer Monica Salvi and filmmaker Samantha Oči have partnered up to create an eccentric promotional video for the upcoming stage show “Mad Women in my Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy” - which is due to be performed in London and New York in October 2017.

Shot in London’s Murder Mile Studio (a renowned alternative venue and S&M Dungeon) the trailer is full of dark humour. Miss Salvi describes it as “Hammer Horror meets Rocky Horror meets Alice Cooper” - citing these influences as her greatest inspirations whilst growing up. Paired with the dark and dramatically lit atmospheres that characterise Miss Oči’s cinematography style, the trailer seeks to conveys a small taste of what is to come with Miss Salvi’s full theatrical show.

Miss Salvi had this to say about the trailer and forthcoming show: “I think we all have a trigger for madness within ourselves to some degree, and the more we acknowledge it, explore it and allow our ‘emotional madness’ to come out in a healthy and creative way, the easier it is to recognise it in others, and build better relationships, not based on judgement, but on understanding. I want this show to inspire people to unleash their own streak of madness!”

Miss Oči added: “I've always been drawn towards imagery that is both dark and surreal, and I think that my cinematography reflects that.  ‘"Mad Women in My Attic!" really appealed to my sensibilities, and I was very excited to work with Monica and the eccentric women that she unleashed during the making of the trailer. Against the bleak and dark backdrop of the dungeon where the trailer was filmed, I really liked the juxtaposition of intense color against black, as I felt that it highlighted Monica’s colorful characters as we delved into their dark but insanely magical world.”

From Avant - to - BeYond Macabre!! (Film-Making) (September 2017)

Reflecting on the last 18 Months of Filming "MACABRE" Trilogy!!
It’s taken about 18 Months to get to this Point... I started AVANT-MACABRE in March 2016. I went on to do Grand Macabre later that summer in August. In 2017 after start and stops, I finished my Short Film Trilogy with Beyond Macabre.

It’s NOT been easy... like I said, Start/Stop, Start/Stop in focusing talents and direction to make a better saga each time!

Avant-Macabre was developed from pieced-together film making and lack of direction, but it got made and the film was set to Poetry by Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc and Gary Baxter and myself. It wasn’t a bad effort on my behalf, but a follow-up would come in Grand Macabre (2016).

GM was a great effort I felt, once I actually came back to the film and employed the VFX of Davy Simmons. It worked a lot better even though YES there may have been room for improvement, but IT finally worked and started to slot into place as a short film.

Beyond Macabre finally came about, again, Start/Stop, etc. when my Communication and some confidence emerged to go ahead with the Project as a Hybrid Clown/Poetry-Horror!! Special Thanks to: Dylan Knight and Alexander Reed for all their Talents on the film and my Younger Brother. Shout Out to: Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc, again for Helping keep me Motivated since Avant-Macabre.
Some Projects made it, some projects didn’t, but through continuing being Creative... I think I’ve done darn well.

THANK YOU TO ALL that helped... THANK YOU!!

So... What’s Next? We will see at this point in time and continue to keep writing and creating MOVIE MAGIC and Illusion. I currently going over ideas and writing and plotting my next few films for the Near Future.

DON’T FORGET... I also did a CHRISTMAS SPECIAL last Year for the Holidays.

Why I Left Past Projects (Gore Feast)!! Indie Horror (September 2017)

MrSheltonTV - FIlm-Maker, Blogger & Vlogger!
In April this year, I felt the need to step aside from the Indie Film Scene. I was very ill with a chest infection, I was down in the dumps and basically NOT creating. This was a hard time and felt grounded to my home and couch not knowing where I was going. Projects were put on hold and I felt very neglected and on my own.

I went to EM-Con eventually just to chill out and meet actor friend, Alex Reed. I felt as though I didn't want to be around BIG crowds and felt closed in and Anxious. Afterwards, and very shortly, myself and Alex went for a Coffee around Nottingham. I was going through my own changes and felt very alone. I explained to Reed that I had to leave-be a previous film Project due to my health concerns and stress levels. He understood and we just talked over a Coffee or two around Nottingham.

I took time out and needed it! I felt badly beaten emotionally and I felt as though I was going through personal changes in my life! My thoughts were getting impulsive and Negative, in-which I didn't enjoy or like.

I dropped out of the past project of Gore Feast after I'd worked to help raise money on an Indiegogo. People were kind and donated, so I have to Thank those people. At the end of it all, I felt as though it was in vain, not because I had to pull-out of the film, but because I was feeling empty and unloved. My creative waves were still on hold. Even though I felt as though I was treated unfairly by the previous Production, I still go on and try to see the best in others.

Happy Birthday: MrSheltonTV + Camden Film Fair - Caroline Munro! (September 2017)

I met Former Bond Girl, Caroline Munro on my Birthday!!
Happy Birthday to MrSheltonTV. Yesterday, Actor Alex Reed and myself returned back to London to go back to The Camden Film Fair @ The Electric Ballroom. Now, I'll admit, it'd been a while and I was taken back a little bit in London. I had to step outside and wipe away a few tears at the time, but it what an awesome day in Camden, again!!

I was reunited with Emma Dark (Salient Minus Ten [2017] - Trailer), Merlyn Roberts, Gary Baxter, Chris (DidactOfDeath) and Friends. I also got to meet the lovely Caroline Munro for the first time after hearing so much about her and seeing her films growing up.

The previous evening, Reed and Myself had watched Slaughter High (1986) and reviewed the film below in a Vlog for Youtube. Thank You London, Camden... I miss you, all ready!! Thank you for the Birthday wishes.
