GV21 THE WANDA COLEMAN PROJECT: Genuis. (Period). "GV21 is a full on Documentary Interview with the Brilliant Poet / Writer / Journalist Wanda Coleman by Bob Bryan. Los Angeles' "Unofficial Poet Laureate" was an edgy life-force in the poetry community during many of its ebbs and flows over the past 3 decades. Her power and talent matched only by her raw, charismatic energy as a compassionate person, completely aware in the moment, each moment of her life. It was my pleasure to meet and hear her read several times over the years. We in the community are dumbstruck by her loss and that’s why, with an act or artistic theatrical-cinematic magic, we have this film. A divine act of poetic sorcery." - Jack G. Bowman, Poet / MA LMFT More GV21 Reviews...
GV28 WHO AM I? Wisdom from the Bones. “I really liked your GV28 WHO AM I? Wisdom from the Bones, Luis Rodriguez is great. The close-ups of his face reading so many of his poems is a deeply moving and inspiring literary gift. I appreciate that you wove in a beautiful chronology of family photos honoring every stage of his life heritage and the psychological rites of passage of his strength of will and passionate living / dying in the fire and personal choices in opening new doors through mastering adversities that have broken others. The music sound track and visual and textual editing add fun, energetic quickening of the lively pulse, vitality, and cultural rhythms of city living. There are also profound moments of stopping and savoring--the sparkle in the eye of the wisdom of pain transformed into forgiveness so as not to personally be weighed down by the burden of terribly violating things.” - Nancy Mildren, Artist More GV28 Reviews...

Performance footage shows an art form evolving. continue...
THE DJ (TURNTABLISM)
GV9 SOULFUL WAYS: The DJ "I don't know about you, but where I sit the machinations of what a DJ actually does behind the "wheels" are downright fascinating. Consider the superior manual dexterity that is required to manipulate faders, switchers, equalizers, turntables (usually 2) all seemingly near simultaneous in their execution, in order to create a beat! Imagine? Watching those fingers move, tweak, manipulate, skratch, push, slide and reverse actions is a sight-to-behold. The counter-intelligence at play here is awe-inspiring and unique!" continue...
GV10 HIP-HOP DANCE: Moving in the Moment is an intensely entertaining, educational & exhaustive documentary, defining it's essential character from start to finish! It's all here!... GV10 is an engaging documentary (from multi award-winning filmmaker Bob Bryan) that personalizes the Hip-Hop dance experience for those artists who "live it" to those of us who "receive it". This specific and complex text, this living, dynamic kinesthetic language is borne out of their life experiences, the love of the game and the music that moves them. Whether you call it Breakin', BBoyin', BGirlin' or simply Hip-Hop Dance, what we witness here is authentically Funky and Soulful. These talented & expressive dancers strive to be "in the moment" and when it's good, what gets expressed in movement, is spirit-filled, awe-inspiring and explosive! continue...
