Ashton Kristopher Bracciodieta became a filmmaker after he completed his studies at Full Sail University in 2008.  The Reacher is his second film as director.  The previous project he directed was a suspense/horror film called “Nova Road”. 

Ashton credits the original 1933 “King Kong” as his inspiration behind filmmaking. Although he was only 2 years old at the time, the fantasy and spectacle of the film, along with the emotional connection to the characters, made a lasting impact.  He says, “In the words of the great Ray Harryhausen, I’ve never been the same since”.

Beyond his Full Sail University education, Ashton developed as a filmmaker by working on various projects and film sets.  “From small independent productions to higher budget films, you learn a great deal by working physically on a set. It also doesn’t hurt to watch the behind-the-scenes of your all-time favorite films to…

Stupid Genius

The name of this album “Stupid is as Stupid does” lead me to believe I was going to hit play only to hear anger blasting from my speakers. Instead, I found a man with a talent for delivering meaningful lyrics through nicely layered well composed tracks. There are many influences in this music that make the journey a beautiful one. If you listen closely enough you might get lost in the story the song delivers. Each song is sexy soulful and won me over. The islands were calling to me in one song. Then I was on an open highway in the deep south chasing my dreams. Mostly I was dancing the night away in a crowded room, sweaty and hot in the urban melting pot.  Take your own journey, get this Stupid Genius album today. Check out his music video for the first track Atomatic too, filmed right here in Orlando. Learn more about Stupid Genius at http://www.StupidGenius.com.

Mad Sexual Genius Album Review

The name of the band alone, Mad Sexual Genius, intrigues me.  Then to have my hand on the play button, filled me with anticipation of what was to come. Perhaps somewhere in this music I might learn something new.  After all, it’s not every day one meets a Mad Sexual Genius, yet alone five of them.  I pushed play.  It wasn’t rock, it wasn’t pop, it wasn’t hip-hop, it was more.  It was old school and new school. How cool was this sound through my speakers, blasting a smooth, funky sexy sound that reminded me of Motown. Okay, I’m hooked. What more am I going to hear ran through my head. The vocals were filling the speaker. The lyrics had me listening closely. The horns hit it. Wait, I thought this was something funky like soul or jazz, but I hear some rap.  Wow. I was on a musical journey. These Musican’s seem to have a true passion for what they do.  It shows in every song, with a distinct groove.  I suggest you get lost in this music for a while.  It can’t hurt to have that special someone with you either.  But I dare not say more about that.  To learn more about Mad Sexual Genius visit them at:  www.MadSexualGenius.com and enjoy.

Petey & the Ravens Album Review of Broken Heart

Petey & the Raven

Smooth and sexy strings mixed with gentle rhythms and vocals to take us through a Broken Heart. There is a southern rock feel throughout, with a bit of blues and country that keeps you tapping your foot or nodding your head to the beat. It’s a pleasure to listen to with some gorgeous guitar playing. Yet, it also leads into some powerful riffs, and harder hitting rhythm.  This was an excellent surprise, since you would think a Broken Heart would be mellow and sad in is music, but it’s not. The songs on this album are about more than the love between a man, and a woman, they are about the broken hearts felt in all aspects of life as demonstrated by songs like “My child went to war”. Definitely worth your time, especially if you appreciate great guitar. Find out more about Petey & the Ravens by visiting: www.peteyandtheravens.com or by email at: peteyandtheravens@myspace.com
