FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Joe Viglione's 1 minute film, THE BIRDS RETURN (Music by Buzzy Linhart), won the regional (Medford) film award from JustaMinute Film Festival
The Just A Minute Festival is a production of The Media Tribe, Inc. This program is supported in part by grants from the Winchester Cultural Council, the Medford Arts Council, the Arlington Cultural Council, the Beverly Cultural Council and the Billerica Arts Council, all local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
Look at what the critics are saying: the soundman for Lou Reed, Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, The Byrds etc. (who shall go nameless) said:
Music by Buzzy Linhart (who performed with Jimi Hendrix, Bill Cosby, Carly Simon and wrote Bette Midler's signature tune "Friends"). "The Birds" soundtrack was engineered and co-produced by Eddie Kramer who engineered Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones' "Beggars Banquet." "The Birds" was one of the first songs taped at Jimi Hendrix's new studio back in 1970 or so. The unreleased track just surfaced when Mr. Kramer got the tapes to Mr. Linhart and Mr. Linhart's company licensed the song to me for this film.
Also, note my "Alfred Hitchcock" moment as I put my shadow in the movie (as the Hitchcock sort-of walk-on); the title itself is a nod to Hitch - "The Birds Return"
Mr. Hitchcock was never on Visual Radio, but I did photograph him and meet him in the early 1970s for a story in my magazine, Varulven when he was in Boston promoting his film FRENZY
