    Roqué’s First Friday Films: MaxZine’s Winter Garden (05/06/22)

    Well, it is that time again! Another first Friday of the month is upon us! I have a new short film to share with all the world. My partner MaxZine has been a dedicated gardener for much of his life. Planting veggies and caring for plants happens all year round. In the winter, he manages to brave the cold temperatures and snow storms to be able to grow fresh vegetables.

    For this month’s First Friday Film, I showcase MaxZine’s Winter Garden. You get a fun and whimsical glimpse into how he manages to garden in even the frostiest conditions.

    Roqué’s First Friday Films: Strawberry Wine (Interpretations Series) 04/01/22

    Today is Friday, April 1, and it’s time for another new First Friday feature on my YouTube channel. This month’s newest selection is an intersection between my work as a performing musician and a filmmaker. Filmed and recorded live at Hazelwood Studios in Woodbury, TN, this past winter, I selected the song “Strawberry Wine” by Deana Carter as one of the songs I would cover. I have always loved the song since the first time I heard it, and I wish I had written it. I can completely sympathize with its story of first love and the bittersweet memories that come with it.

    You can watch my full performance in the screen above, and if you know of a song you would like for me to cover, please let me know in the comments section below or on social media.

    Roqué’s Friday Films: Cultivating Creativity Episode 2 (03/04/22)

    For this month’s first Friday Film, I unveil the second episode of my Cultivating Creativity series. This episode explores the joy of play and how unstructured fun activity is a breeding ground for creativity and ideation. Filmed in a park in Woodbury, TN, and in a studio in Liberty, TN, I had a lot of fun making this, which is actually the objective I was aiming for. The music in this episode is an original composition and a piano improvisation I recorded specifically for this project.
