Matt Bucy Joins the “Before Homosexuals” Crew as Digital Colorist

Matt Bucy has previously done some beautiful cinematography for our film “Before Homosexuals”, and now we are thrilled to announce that he is joining our crew again as our Digital Colorist. Matt was recently recognized in American Cinematographer for his lighting and camera work on the award-winning recreation of 1960s TV, “Star Trek Continues (YouTube).” Our director, John Scagliotti says, “Now with Matt on board, we will be able to boldly go where no man has gone before!” His experimental film, “Of Oz the Wizard (Vimeo),” a re-edit of the MGM classic, went semi-viral in early 2016, after favorable reviews in the LA Times, on Buzzfeed, Vox, Dangerous Minds and others.

Color correction is one of the final frontiers left in our post production process. We are grateful to the support of so many in helping to create this amazing documentary.

Don DiNicola Joins the “Before Homosexuals” Crew as Music Composer

Don DiNicola as Original Music Composer

Don DiNicola, who wrote the original score for our films “After Stonewall” and “Dangerous Living,” has set to work on the score for our latest film “Before Homosexuals.” Don has more than 15 years of experience in film and television as a composer and music supervisor and has developed a substantial, multi-tiered music publishing company. Our Director John is thrilled to be working with Don again, and says Don is great at capturing with music the spirit and vision we have created for the film.

With the addition of Don’s work, we are officially entering the final phases of our post-production. We expect the film to be completed in time for the festival circuit beginning in the spring of 2017.
