Friday has arrived, and today, I am delivering to you a little film that has been so delightful to make.
Seriously, it was so much fun.
“Pianos Dancing” is my first attempt at stop-motion animation. This was something I had always wanted to try out, but I had no idea how fun it would be. The film features pianos dancing while bathed in soft golden light.
I happen to have an adorable collection of miniature pianos (as one does), and this gave me the perfect opportunity to use them and show them off.
I hope you enjoy this week’s fanciful creation of dancing pianos!
A couple of days ago, I announced on Instagram that I would be leaving the platform on January 1st of 2021. This is a big deal for me, but it is something I feel compelled to do. In lieu of my presence there, I will still be active on other platforms. If you are on Instagram and would like to stay connected with me and my films and music, you are welcome to utilize any of these options:

Alas!! Another Friday is upon us! I have a new film for you today! In “The Sum of My Hands,” I provide an interior view of my creative life. You get some sense of what drives my creative ideas. It is a life that swims through several different streams that often overlap and converge.
This film has a new score called “Hands Full,” and it gives the film a melodic consistency despite its mercurial imagery.

It’s Friday!! Hooray!!! Not only has the weekend begun, but it is now time for a new installment of Roque’s Friday Films! I took a break last week because of the incredibly stressful presidential election going on here in the US, but today, I present to you a film called “Autumnal”.
Living in the hills and woods of middle Tennessee has given me the chance to enjoy all of the fall colors that are unravelling right now. I literally cannot get enough of how strikingly beautiful all of it is—so much so, that I made a film to showcase the colors and foliage that exist right outside my door.
“Autumnal” is a contemplative film that highlights the vivid changes occurring in nature during a fall season. It features original music by my frequent collaborator and talented musician Andrew Weitze.
