Our 2005 "Barn Salvateers" Documentary

One of the first films Tashai & Robert ever produced together under the Tarazod Films name was back in 2005. Some friends of ours lived on an old farm with two huge historic barns.

Music Recorded for "While It Lasts"

Marc Kornblatt's new documentary got a name change recently. The working title of Found Objects was updated to While It Lasts. Not only did Marc produce and direct this new short, he also composed the music for it.

Robert has been editing the film with Marc and today he snapped a few cell phone pics while Marc was performing the original pieces on his grand piano. Sound designer Dan Szafranek of S2dio Pro recorded the music with Pro Tools.
