Background

Christian Schuller, Documentary filmmaker and Aedan McEvoy, musician, composer and singer songwriter will showcase their talents and speak about their process of collaboration on the Documentary Film “The Gateway Totem Project”.

An award-winning documentary filmmaker and published photographer, his most recent work is “The Gateway Totem Project,” a short documentary that unveils the story behind a sculpture honoring Morristown’s deep-rooted immigrant community.  He is also the cinematographer and co-director behind “The Creature Show,” an on-going web series about endangered species of New Jersey.  His first documentary, “Growtown Motown,” chronicled the creation of the Early Street Community Garden in Morristown, NJ.

During his career, he’s shot, produced, directed, and edited projects for multiple Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, foundations, and small businesses. Clients include: Johnson & Johnson, The Knight Foundation, Verizon, Edible Jersey, GUESS Eyewear, WhiteWave Foods, and Morris Arts.

Documentary Filmmaker Christian Schuller will be presenting a few of his Documentary Films at MPAC – Arts in the Community -series at 70 South Gallery on South Street in Morristown on July 25, 2018 beginning at 7:30.

Eccentric composer and songwriter Ædan McEvoy writes music that has been described as “quirky,” “whimsical,” “other-worldly,” and “honest.” A listener of all music, Ædan is influenced by classical, rock, folk, indie, new age, world, jazz, and trance music. Her unique interpretations make her a sought-after composer, songwriter, and collaborator. Ædan is a pianist, harpist and singer/songwriter of her original music and performs throughout the Tri-state area. She has studied under great composers and performers such as Duo Scorpio’s Kathryn Andrews, Columbia University’s David Fulmer, Manhattan School of Music’s Mark Pakman, and Dr. Kyle Blaha and Tim Muathe of The Juilliard School. From 2013-2015, Ædan participated in the New York Youth Symphony Composition Program, and has been invited to numerous composition festivals and conferences.

In 2016, she was commissioned by Morris Arts for the original score of The Gateway Totem Project, and two pieces throughout 2017-2018 by the Young Artist’s Harp Seminar in Ohio and Georgia. Ædan has her Bachelor of Music in Theory & Composition from the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University. She is a member of the New York Songwriters Circle, American Harp Society, and the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen. Her most recent projects include an original EP set to release in Fall 2018 with Boston-based producer Mike Davidson of Plaid Dog Recordings, and a contemporary ballet in collaboration with New York City-based multimedia artist Nicholas Kiray set to release in Fall 2020.
