MOON ROCK FOR MONDAY
Australian landscape and road movies are a match made in cinema heaven. Due to her terminal illness, nine-year-old Monday’s only contact with the outside world is her weekly visit to the hospital. Her imagination is captured by the (Uluru), which she believes has healing powers. When she sets out for the middle of Australia, she becomes caught up in a police chase involving sixteen-year-old Tyler, a street kid with a massive heart. The unlikely pair soon form a friendship and take off on an epic road trip to the Northern Territory. Meanwhile, her father is desperately trying to track his daughter down before the police find the fugitives. With location shooting in the Flinders Ranges and Coober Pedy, this is a big-hearted film set in a big country. Throw in performances by Aaron Jeffrey, David Field, and Nicholas Hope and you’ve got an irresistible package.
My name is Gary J Douglass and I’m a guitarist, singer/songwriter and producer with a passion for composing alternative indie pop/rock based in Adelaide, Australia. I collaborate with dedicated sync songwriters spanning the globe from Australia to Canada, the U.S. and Europe to write, record and produce artist tracks as well as songs for sync.
I am also a studio-based artist. I record/produce from my home and I release new material via my YouTube channel. I have a distinctly modern guitar-based flavour with lush melodies, harmonies and dynamics. For example, garish sons bares a proudly acoustic guitar flavour.
I write/produce songs for placement in film, television, advertising, Youtube channels and podcasts.
In our increasingly multimedia online-environment lives – and in an uncertain world – music is not only a constant demand but nourishment for our souls.
