Hitting the studio to record an original 50s style pop-rock song with The Buddy Project. The song was commissioned by fellow CMG Sundance Alum, Cody Lieberman. The song will be the theme of his upcoming film "Tapes From Tomorrow." A Montreal based sci-fi narrative about a missing girlfriend and a series of mysterious tapes that begin appearing following the her disappearance.
The prospective premiere for the film (and the song) is slated for the Late 2017-2018 Festival circuit.

Filmmaker Institute participants will also be able to attend daily networking happy hours, filmmaker workshops and Cinema Master Classes (Hosted by Industry Icons like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese & Sydney Pollack).
