The beginning of the year I made two Seminary of Praying Mantis Publishing Advertisements based on the original film In the Heat of the Night.
It is relative now more than ever and the short clips I rendered in are meant to provoke. Honesty is needed as we have to learn to stand tall against crazy conspiracies, racism and learn to let people be who they are meant to be. What a great film that tells a narrative we still need to hear.
In the Heat of the Night is a 1967 American neo-noir mystery drama film directed by Norman Jewison. It is based on John Ball’s 1965 novel of the same name and tells the story of Virgil Tibbs, a Black police detective from Philadelphia, who becomes involved in a murder investigation in a small town in Mississippi. It stars Sidney Poitier and Rod Setiger and was produced by Walter Mirisch.
I am working with the music program “Cakewalk Band lab” and the music is a whimsical rendering with Rod Setiger who I love. Punk rock feel too.
