Bernard Rose, who followed up his 1992 horror classic Candyman by writing and directing the 1994 Beethoven biography Immortal Beloved (starring Gary Oldman), has now turned his eye on Beethoven contemporary Franz Schubert.
Fittingly, The Hurdy Gurdy Man, Rose’s new 12-minute film about Schubert, is part musical, part horror. It tells the story of the composer’s last days, when he writes one of his most famous pieces as a hurdy gurdy man haunts him. Jon-Mark Hurley plays Schubert and Thomas L. Christensen his tormentor.
Vero has apparently become a haven for creatives looking to share work with followers. Other content launched on the app includes Justice League director Zack Snyder’s Snow Steam Iron, Max Joseph’s (MTV’s Catfish) documentary series Charismatic Thinker, Kibwe Tavares’ animated short Robot & Scarecrow, and British actor Asim Chaudhry’s directorial debut Love Pool.
Rose. meanwhile, hopes to premiere additional films about classical composers on Vero. His list of subjects includes JS Bach, Frederic Chopin, Scott Joplin, Hildegard Von Bingham and Philip Glass.
