What’s The Buzz ?

ÉCU 2014- The 9th Annual European Independent Film Festival will take place from April 4th to 6th at Cinéma Les 7 Parnassiens, 75014 Paris.

As well as the film screenings, festival attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an array of workshops as well as a series of ‘Meet the Directors‘ panel discussions, in which the audience pose questions directly to the filmmakers. There is also a full program of live music hosted by ÉCU’s partner Access Film-Music. Personalities from cinema, television and the arts, as well as filmmakers and film industry professionals, will mix with a cinema-loving public craving the energy, free spiritedness and innovation that embodies independent film.

Along with The European Independent Film Festival and Women-In-Film-In-Music and ESG Management School, HorizonVU Music has co-sponsored a study “Why, Where, What and How? Motivation Behind Film Viewership”. The preliminary results will be available and discussed throughout the Festival and during a special co-sponsored session on Sunday, 6 April at 10h30 led by Owner and CEO of Cypress Moon Productions, Inc., Tonya S. Holly. In addition to the survey results, a focus of the discussion will be on the issue of gender bias in the motion picture and music industries.

“We eagerly look forward to giving these great indie films the recognition they deserve by screening them to large audiences here in Paris,” said Scott Hillier, Oscar-honoured filmmaker and ÉCU’s founder. “In its 9th year, ÉCU continues its tradition of being a true filmmakers’ festival, in which directors develop their unique creative styles in a warm and welcoming environment.“

Survey Logo_ECUFilm, or « the movies » accounts for a significant level of economic activity around the world. Film is an important part of our lives and lifestyles influencing trends across the arts, including for example, music and fashion. While there has been a growing amount of interest and research related to film audiences and audience behavior, there is relatively little research focused specifically on independent film audiences.

The European Independent Film Festival , HorizonVU Music and ESG Management School http://www.esgms.fr/ are engaged in a large-scale project focused on the study of “why, where, what and how” people follow independent film. The study is also aligned with the Paris-based group Women-In-Film-In-Music (WIFIM).

The study is leading off with a broad based survey designed to collect demographic motivation-related information on the independent film audience. The survey is planned to take place between December 2013 and the Festival in April. Preliminary results of the survey will be made available at the Festival. This is potentially a large contribution to the entertainment industry in general, and independent film, specifically.

We hope that you will participate in this exciting effort. Participate at

Zoë Keating is a one-woman orchestra. She uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon layer of cello, creating intricate, haunting and compelling music. Zoë is known for both her use of technology – which she uses to sample her cello onstage – and for her DIY ethic which has resulted in the sale of over 60,000 copies of her self-released albums and a devoted following.

Zoë KeatingBorn in Canada and classically trained from the age of eight, Zoë obtained a liberal arts degree from Sarah Lawrence College and then spent her 20’s working in software while moonlighting as a cellist in rock bands. She eventually combined the cello and the computer, developing her signature style of live-layered music while improvising for late night crowds at her Francisco warehouse. In 2003 Zoë quit her tech job to focus on her layered cello music. She made the choice to release her music online without a label, believing that her listeners were out there and she just needed to find them.

Zoë’s successful grassroots, DIY approach has garnered her much public attention and press. She speaks regularly on artist-empowerment, sustainable careers and the concept of artist-as-entrepreneur, has been profiled on NPR’s All Things Considered, named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum and awarded a performing arts grant from the Creative Capital Foundation. She serves on the boards of the San Francisco chapter of the Recording Academy, the Magik Magik Orchestra and CASH Music, a nonprofit organization that builds open source digital tools for musicians and labels.

Zoë has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists, including Imogen Heap, Amanda Palmer, Tears for Fears, DJ Shadow, John Vanderslice, Rasputina, Pomplamoose and Paolo Nutini. She has collaborated and performed with WNYC’s Radiolab and is also known for her work in film and dance. Commissions include music for the San Francisco MOMA and soundtracks for the films Ghost Bird, The Devil’s Chair and Frozen Angels. Her music has been used by countless entities, including the BBC, ITV, PBS, NPR, CBS, NBC, Intel, IBM, Apple, Patagonia, Specialized Bikes, the Alonzo King Lines Ballet, Alvin Ailey Dance, Parsons Dance and San Francisco’s ODC, and was recently in the Broadway play “Wit” starring Cynthia Nixon.Her cello playing can be heard on Mark Isham’s scores The Conspirator, Warrior and The Secret Life of Bees.

Zoë makes an effort to reach audiences wherever they are, performing on radio, television and webcasts, outdoors in the desert, in churches and concert halls, at universities, museums, technology conferences, airports, public spaces, executive brainstorming sessions, house concerts, bars and rock clubs across around the world.

She is also extremely fond of pancakes and likes to say yes to crazy things…

“… uses live looping to transform solo performances into multipart masterpieces.” – Electronic Musician

“…sublime minimalist music with a pop sensibility” – San Francisco Weekly

“Keating’s solo album, One Cello x 16, is elegantly haunting as it gracefully walks the line between ambient and neo-classical forms.” – Portland Mercury

Lisbeth Scott

Lisbeth Scott

Lisbeth Scott is an award winning singer/songwriter whose voice and songs have appeared in over 150 films and television shows many of which are Oscar and Emmy winners including Shrek, Narnia, AVATAR, Spiderman, Passion, Munich (in which John Williams wrote a 5 minute solo specifically for Scott), Ironman and Trueblood. She has simultaneously developed her career as a solo artist producing and recording over 9 albums and is currently working on her tenth. Her work has spent over 10 weeks in the top ten of the Billboard charts and she has toured the world appearing both with orchestra and her band.

Scott has recently stepped into the role of film composer and has scored several feature films to date, working with directors Louie Schwartzberg and Adam Christian Clark among others. She is also writing with Nathan Barr as co-composer on the new Amazon children’s series Tumbleaf, premiering early 2014. Her composing work will also be gracing Broadway in the next few years in two well known musical adaptations.

Lisbeth began her career as a classical pianist headed for a concert career, but as soon as she could, ran away to California to literally find her voice.Someone heard her singing and playing piano for a modern dance class in the hills of Idyllwild and suggested her voice for a score by composer Hans Zimmer. That was all it took. Scott’s uniquely moving and shiver-inducing voice was launched.

Her voice, songs and compositions are largely influenced by her upbringing and travels, which were steeped in every kind of music imaginable. She was surrounded by classical music as a child not only due to her piano studies, but also because her sister was a professional ballerina.Her parents were award winning ballroom dancers and exposed her to everything from the Mills Brothers to Peggy Lee, to Duke Ellington Judy Garland and Tommy Dorsey. Her Armenian grandparents sang her the songs and sounds of their country. A close family friend was a blues harmonica player and gave Lisbeth an in depth blues education that lead to a love of African rhythms and jazz. Scott spent many years studying African drumming with Baba Olatunji and several others. She also spent a year and half in London studying medieval music and traveled through Ireland for a long while to immerse herself in Celtic sounds. All along the way Scott picked up instruments and learned how to play them…6 and 12 string guitar, dulcimer, harmonium, and calimba to name a few.

This combination of sounds and influences translates into a uniquely mesmerizing and powerful sound. A sound that John Williams has called “absolutely ravishing” and Variety has called “…perfection”.

“…a vocal wonder… her voice is an incredibly rich instrument.”
– All Music Guide

“Scott’s music is perfection.”
– Variety

“…absolutely ravishing.”
– John Williams

– Yo Yo Ma

“…will leave the imprint of a feather on your heart.”

Sagarika continues her proactive involvement with issues related to women’s empowerment. Most recently, working with the Navjyoti India Foundation, she has started production of a new song for the campaign called Bigul (Bugle in English). The concept is to use the music and lyrics as a means to bring awareness to the BIGUL Campaign. This song is intended to become an anthem that can be shared throughout India and beyond. Sagarika plans to visit schools and colleges singing and spreading the BIGUL meaning, while bringing awareness to the safety of Indian women, young and old.

In Sagarika’s words,

“Being an enthusiastic supporter of many charitable causes, I was delighted to begin a correspondence with the NGO [Navjyoti India Foundation]. During our correspondence we discussed their campaign for ‘Women’s’ Empowerment’. The campaign called BIGUL is aimed at bringing awareness to women and their safety issues.”

“I was most fortunate to have an inspiring conversation with the charity’s Executive, and a date was made for a meeting shortly after. During our meeting we discussed the Women’s Empowerment campaign at great length. This conversation covered the organisation, its aspirations, and how I could contribute and be part of it in any way possible.”

Two versions of this song have been composed. A beautiful ballad version has already been composed by Billy Playle, with touching lyrics by Mellina Barnett, two songwriters from the UK that Sagarika has worked with many times in the past. One other version of this song is being composed by Sujith Kurian of Kochi, India. This will be
the Hindi version.

Mel’s lyrics have been translated and altered by Sagarika as requested by the NGO. By having two versions of the song we feel we have a greater opportunity to communicate the meaning of the words and hopefully help the NGO in sharing their cause with a larger audience. The intention is to distribute the Hindi version of the song in India, and the intention is to wants to share the song amongst Hindi radio stations and the press in the UK. The English version of the song will eventually be available in digital format too.

This charity, the Navjyoti India Foundation, is extremely important to Sagarika, and her fellow songwriters. We plan to not only bring awareness to the NGO and its campaign, but through music hope to bring attention to the rest of the world to the plight of women in India, and beyond.
