HAiR Opening Night Pantages January 6th 2011

"This was a truly emotional experience for me, for not only did my friend Gerry Ragni's life live on through the amazing performance by Steel Burkhardt, but also this cast made the issues that the original show made as current about War, the environment, Love and individuality. From the time Gerry and I danced around Berkeley Square in a London downpour, singing "Singing in the Rain" on my first trip, his and Jim's dream live on."  Paul Korda

Here are some pictures taken by Raymond Van Tassel during the Original "HAiR'' casts rehearsals and performance in Golden Gate Park at the free festival attended by at least 50,000 people.

                                             

Sonja Kristina (Mask, Curved Air) and Paul Korda were members of the Original London Cast of ''HAiR''
                                                       and hadn't seen each other for 39 years!

As promised, here are some pictures of the background actors decked out in their costumes for Pirates of the Caribbean:Dead Man's Chest in between takes, enjoying a break on the Palos Verdes peninsular.

These pictures are just part of the atmosphere of a movie that undoubtedly you will be thrilled by. The professionalism of every-one involved is a sure sign of an epic in the making, and I certainly am proud to be associated with. I hope you enjoy the pictures and look forward to you experiencing "Pirates of the Caribbean:Dead Man's Chest".

Also, here are some pictures that friends and  I took while working on Pirates of the Caribbean:Curse of the Black Pearl

                                                    

Even though we were all up at the crack of dawn, there was a natural excitement about working in period costumes and sets, that made us feel we were reliving those days of the Pirates, even if the sunglasses and cigarettes were a little out of the period!

At the start of the movie, the sword for the new commander of the fort is taken from the Governors mansion (miniature on the right, the actual blue screened structure on left) to the investiture, by a horse drawn coach.

                                               I hope you've enjoyed the pix.
