|Combining his passion for both music and movies, Vohn Regensburger has created "Last of the Romantics," one of the most unusual love stories Iíve ever seen on film. Itís no wonder Iím so excited about interviewing him on my ďMovie Addict HeadquartersĒ BlogTalkRadio show next Tuesday, September 25, at 4 p.m., Eastern Time.
"Last of the Romantics" is Regensburgerís feature film debut as both a writer and director for the big screen. Itís a satirical, yet poignant look at a failing composer obsessed with his legacy under the climate of todayís culture. The movie has already won a number of awards including Best Feature Film at New York International Film Festival and Best Romance Feature at Hollywood HD Festival. Regensburger also won Best Director of a Feature Film at the New York International Film Fest, and his score for "Last of the Romantics" has been nominated for Best Film Score at Moondance.
Born in New York City and raised in Denver, Colorado, Regensburger grew-up in a musical environment playing the cello and guitar. After making his first student films in high school, he studied acting at the University of Creighton and music composition at the University of Colorado. A composer of many genres and styles, Regensburger has written various works in classical, choral, jazz, Brazilian guitar, and film music. The Mercury Ensemble chamber orchestra has performed two of his pieces, including "Largo for Strings" and his "Symphony #2, The Apassionata." Besides composing and conducting the score for "Last of the Romantics," he did the same for "Thursday Night" (2005) as well as for the documentary film, "Engineering: A Century of Change" (2001). Film Music Magazine featured a montage of his film music on compilation discs Vol. #3 and #4.
Scheduled to begin shooting in mid-October is "133," Regensburgerís second feature film as director. It deals with an undercover copís excursion into the world of narcotics in a small town.
