While we came home empty handed for Dismissal Time, there was no better feeling than having the movie play in front of the DC audience! Eternally thankful to Master June Daguiso for the opportunity and even more thankful not only to see my buddy @milan3rd perform but also to WIN for BEST MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTOR for Milan’s song ANGELINA!
DISMISSAL TIME Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is now available
Oclassica releases the original motion picture soundtrack to a short film “Dismissal Time” by André Joseph @ajepyx: https://oclassica.com/releases/dismissal-time-original-motion-picture-soundtrack/. Available on all music streaming platforms.
The main title theme of the soundtrack was composed and performed by Konstantin Soukhovetski @konstantin.soukhovetski, virtuoso pianist and actor.
The soundtrack features emotional piano piece “Anticipation” by Polina Nazaykinskaya @polinamusic and absolute hit song “Night Skies” composed and performed by Matthew Hackett & Husayn Ruhe aka the Puge @wolvencubsorcery.
The film tells the story of a black high school student in a reputable prep school who becomes the victim of a vicious form of cyber bullying. His history teacher makes it her mission to bring those responsible to task. Loosely inspired by true events.

ZOIEA – SUNRISE Official Music Video
When I produced my first feature film PRICELESS back in 2007, I had a party scene with an extra named Zoiea Ohizep from New Rochelle who was invited by another actor. Little did I know at the time that he had a long career as a songwriter and backup singer to such legends as Freddie Jackson, Melba Moore, Atlantic Starr, and so many others. We always discussed making a video to one of his songs and it took years until we finally got around to SUNRISE. Sit back, relax, and enjoy.
