Bright Blue Gorilla is Robyn Rosenkrantz and Michael Glover, globe-trotting artists from Los Angeles. They've been touring the world for 20 years, making music (11 CDs) and movies (4 Feature Films), performing in cinemas, music halls, festivals, and just-about-everywhere-you-can-imagine! Robyn and Michael have been living a life of creative adventure since 1990 and they're still going strong.
Lose With English is the 4th feature film by BBG. This time they shot it guerilla-style on the streets of Los Angeles. (Check out the YouTube Trailers for Lose With English!) Lose With English is another BBG labor of love with super-talented friends working overtime to make the creative vision come alive.
Before Lose With English, there was the festival favorite, Karate Film Café. KFC was the 3rd BBG feature film to make the Europe cinema circuit.
Before KFC there was BBG's award-winning feature film, The Mind of Henry Lime. The Mind of Henry Lime won the "Best Comedy Feature" award at the SMTV Film Festival in Bombay, and was an Official Selection of both the Arhus Film Festival in Denmark and the Portabello Festival in London. The End of The Pier Film Fest in the UK gave The Mind of Henry Lime a Special Commendation in the "Best Feature Film" category.
BBG started making movies back in 2004 after they got a Hollywood break acting and singing in an Alec Baldwin and Matthew Broderick film, "The Last Shot". (During this time Michael was also working as dailies editor for the MTV show, "The Osbournes".) During the Alec Baldwin movie, inspiration struck and Robyn and Michael decided to take their Hollywood Movie Paycheck and start making movies themselves. Their first feature film Sister Sarah's Sky was the result.
Karate Film Café, The Mind of Henry Lime, and Sister Sarah's Sky, were all written and directed by Michael Glover and produced by Robyn Rosenkrantz - co-produced by Fred Beshid - with music by Bright Blue Gorilla, Andy Fite, Brian Joseph, David Zink, Kerstin Kaernbach (of 17 Hippies).
It all started in 1990, when Robyn & Michael quit their L.A. jobs, sold everything they had (except their guitars), and bought one-way tickets to Europe. They’ve been living a life of music and adventure ever since.
What can you expect at a Bright Blue Gorilla show? Beautiful vocal harmonies, lots of laughs, songs to inspire the soul, stories and comedy improvisation. BBG uses acoustic guitars, mini guitar, electric bass, bongos, mystical drum, harmonica, flute, and the world-famous DRUM-FEET!
