Prop from "La Soledad"

Buelo_poster001Here is a prop from the short film, "LA SOLEDAD".  We see it briefly at the end when a main character spots it at a critical moment.  We couldn't get any photos of actor Joe Menchaca (who plays Buelo) as a young man to show him on a poster from his singing hey day.  By pure coincidence (though I don't believe in that) I came across an old photo of my late father who was a jazz musician himself.  I thought it would be a nice homage to him and we put it in the poster.  The day before the first day of shooting, art director Erik Shearer emailed me and asked for a name of an opening act for Buelo to put on the poster.  I was in a frantic hurry getting out of my house and I typed without thinking, "Jose Torres y los Gatos".  When I got in my car it dawned on me that the opening act was pretty much a Spanish "Josie and the Pussycats".

The poster was designed beautifully by Graphic Designer Sonia Nikolic. The film's Art Director, Erik Shearer... awesome.
