08-5-07 - Feature film, Day Watch.


Day Watch (Russian: Дневно́й дозо́р, Dnevnoi Dozor), a Russian fantasy action blockbuster marketed as "the first film of the year", opened in theatres across Russia on January 1, 2006 and opened in the U.S. on June 1, 2007. It is a sequel to the 2004 film Night Watch, featuring the same cast. It is based on the second and the third part of Sergey Lukyanenko's novel The Night Watch rather than its follow-up novel Day Watch. The film's budget was USD$4.2 million and was expected to gross $40 million in Russia alone. It is the second part in the Night Watch trilogy, although the third film (Dusk or Twilight Watch) is as yet unmade. 

     Phase One, a production company out of L.A. hired me to record Timur Bekmambetov, Director of the film, for the DVD's commentary track.

Check out the official trailor for Day Watch!

http://www.nba.com/bulls/news/bulls_multimedia.html

Lewis Lazare of The Chicago Sun-Times recently printed this about the ad...

'A final spot focuses on the star quality of Andres Nocioni, and we hear his teammates and members of management expounding on why they are so proud to have him on the team.
Neat, clean and professionally executed in down-to-earth black and white, this series of Chicago Bulls commercials will help fans feel closer to their team and more in sync with the thinking of a management that is obviously trying hard to return the Bulls to their glory days.'
