by Ray Roman in , , ,

Here's an unreleased interview I did back in 2014 for the San Diego Film Awards when I was nominated for Best Cinematography in the Music Video category for the "Supermodel Suitcase" music video for Monkeys In Space. The 2017 San Diego Film Awards are just around the corner so I thought I would share this video from a few years back.

Last night the Film Consortium of San Diego held the first ever San Diego Film Awards at the Horton Grand Theatre. I directed and edited the music video for Monkeys In Space "Supermodel Suitcase" which was nominated for best cinematography in the music video category.

This event would not have been possible if it wasn't for founder of the Film Consortium Jodi Cilley, the FCSD members, and volunteers.

Certainly this festival will continue to grow, it was an honor to be a nominee for this first time event! It's nice to know that in the future more local filmmakers and talent will have the same opporuntiy that I had last night.  Lookout for the new Monkeys In Space album "Kill Your Past" coming out later this month at Facebook.com/MonkeysInSpace and you can watch the Monkeys In Space "Supermodel Suitcase" below.

Special guest star presenters include TV and film actors Kimberlin Brown (Emmy nominated for Sheila Carter-Young & the Restless), Jose Yenque (Traffic), Marc McClure (Superman, Apollo 13). Kimberlin Brown Jose Yenque Marc McClure Host for the show is longtime radio and newspaper personality, Chris Cantore a UT-TV Host and Night & Day Editor as well as long-time San Diego radio on air talent. Featured presenters include many community leaders and local celebrities Joe Terzi (San Diego Tourism Authority), Wally Schlotter (celebrated San Diego Film Commissioner), William Lansdowne (San Diego Police Chief) Allison Andrews (San Diego Fashion Week) Scott Marks (San Diego Reader), George Varga, (2 time Pulitzer nominee & UT Music Critic), John Decker (KPBS Program Director), Larry Groupe (movie composer – Usual Suspects) and more top award winning directors, filmmakers and dignitaries including Police Chief William Lansdowne.
