‘Faces in the Mirror'

Boyd Tinsley, violinist in the Dave Matthews Band, paid a visit Nov. 27 to the Loews Waterfront Theatre in Homestead to promote his new film, “Faces in the Mirror.” Tinsley wrote, scored and produced the film.

The soundtrack was written before the actual film itself, thanks to a late-night vision by Tinsley. “I wanted to explore music in a way I haven't before,” he said. “It gave me the freedom to go wherever my heart led me, and that opened me up. I have been able to bring those influences back to the band.”

The film, which contains very little dialogue, is an introspective look at a day in the life of Ben Fisher (played by Ryan Orr), a man who returns home to bury his father. Fisher spends his day trying to figure out what he needs to do to get over the grief of a guilt-ridden relationship with his father.

“We made this soundtrack to thump, so it feels almost like being at a concert. It's almost like a visual album at times.” Tinsley said at the screening. His goal was to make the audience feel the movie instead of just watching it.

After Tuesday's screening, Tinsley greeted fans, signing autographs, posing for pictures and giving lots of hugs. “This movie was from my heart to yours, and it has brought people together and spread love. I hope we can continue to do that.”
