“[Bolden] gives rise to some stunning visuals and transitions. Time and again, Bolden will seamlessly move between realities (for example, walking from his hospital room straight into the juke joint where he once played to a rapt audience). Or he'll interact with ethereal figures from his past who appear as either mirror reflections or as Star Wars-esque Force ghosts.”

Evil Eye Co-Founder, Dan Rosen, is the principal Visual Effects Supervisor on Bolden, a feature film biopic about the jazz great Charles ‘Buddy’ Bolden from turn of the 20th Century New Orleans. A true passion project, the film has taken over 10 years to come to life and is in theaters May 3rd, 2019. Designing and creating traditional ‘invisible’ effects as well as innovative projection tricks and real-time graphics has been Evil Eye’s key to combining old school techniques and inventing new ones along the way. The film was shot on location in New Orleans, Atlanta and Wilmington, NC to capture the locations and photography as the basis for period environments and effects. Check out the trailer!
