I'm sure you've been overwhelmed by the scenes of destruction caused by the Oklahoma tornado. Phil Watkins, author of PASSIONATA - A Film Scoring Chronicle , has set up a film music themed silent auction that feature some real gems, and all proceeds go to the Red Cross Relief Fund. Over to Phil who'll tell you all about it:
OKLAHOMA TORNADO RELIEF FILM MUSIC MEMORABILIA SILENT AUCTION
In my work as a freelance photographer I am fortunate enough to travel the globe capturing an array of sights and emotions in the film music world. Waking up this morning to see the scenes from Moore, a suburb outside of Oklahoma City made me thankful for everything I am fortunate enough to do.
It was seeing the scenes of complete destruction that kick started my efforts into organising a silent auction for the 'RED CROSS RELIEF FUND' to be run through my Passionata Film Score Photography page. Many emails, messages and phone calls later and I have been overwhelmed by the generous response from the film music community. And now I am calling out to you - The amazing fans of film music to help me help those in need.
