Bobby Field Treats Music As Character in New Film

(PR) Actor/Writer Bobby Field returns to his musical roots to create his upcoming rock-n-roll drama, "The Bridge." In a strategic marketing tactic, Field is rolling out songs from the film months before its release with live performances at Hollywood's most respected venues and a CD sampler.

"The Bridge" is a coming-of-age tale that chronicles the unlikely rise of a small town music prodigy. Faced with a choice that leads him to a life-changing crossroads, he must decide whether to cross his 'bridge' or stay crippled in fear forever. Driven by its powerfully moving original soundtrack, "The Bridge" portrays an arduous journey of the human spirit.

"The Bridge" is also a personal journey for Field, who spent years training under world renowned classical guitarist Carols Molina, while also singing with the hard rock band Dark Descent. Field explains, "I stayed away from music for a long time because I was on a creative path as an actor and filmmaker. So when I started this project, I didn't realize how much I missed creating music. I'm thrilled to be playing and recording again and am having the time of my life with the live shows." Field's music performs an essential role in the film, often serving as the inciting catalyst for a character's evolution.

Field burst onto the indie scene back in 2005 when he wrote, produced, and starred in the critically acclaimed comedy feature "Guy in Row Five"; also starring Claire Kramer, Colin Ferguson, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Rachel Miner and Jennifer Aspen. The film screened to high praise at numerous festivals, winning awards at the Cinequest Film Festival, SoCal Independent Film Festival, and Westwood International Film Festival.

For "The Bridge," Field decided to join forces with production duo, Ray Ellingsen and Jean-Luc Martin of Factor Media Group, as well as associate producer Natalie Avital. Avital states, "His songs are infectious. Having watched Bobby cross his own bridge back to music makes it all the more electric to see him performing them live. The classical guitar, violin, cello, Bobby's voice and innate modern, rock and roll edge, blend together so that the music really moves you."
