Ms. Namita Nayyar: You wrote the song Angel Tonight for the soundtrack of The Third Society and directed the music videos for Doesn’t Matter Anyway and It’s a Beautiful Day, both by the Emily O’Neary Band for The Third Society. You also collaborated with Edith Fung to create the music for the soundtrack of Dive the Deep Blue.Tell us about this endeavor of yours in the world of music?
Ms. J.A. Steel: I always had a love for music. My Mom made me take clarinet lessons for seven years, but I never could really “hear” a song. In my early teens, I got a banjo and took to it immediately. When I started writing screenplays, I started writing the theme songs. I could transpose the banjo music to guitar, piano or any other instrument. It was really helpful when I started promoting and producing bands for soundtracks at USC Film School. I’m a better producer than I am a musician, so I found collaborating easy.
J.A. Steel on WomenFitness: I think Womenfitness.net is fantastic! It has a lot of great information and advice for all body types and levels of fitness. Being healthy and fit is a lifestyle change.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Your film “Denizen” won the 2009 Park City Film Music Festival Silver Medal for excellence in The Teaser Trailer category. Tell us about your experience working on this film?
Ms. J.A. Steel: I placed an ad in a local Salt Lake City Newspaper and was surprised at the result. I got a really great local band called “The Street” and their songs were perfect for the creating a driving emotional force for the characters. Janet Mayson, who was part of the “Salvation” crew and Mayor Greenwell in “Denizen” had a song called “Mid-Air” that she had written. I loved the song, so I used it. The original “Denizen” feature is the only film where I have no songs on the soundtrack. For the “Denizen” director’s cut on the internet, “Denizen: Descent”, I do have a few songs.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: With exceptional hard work you are credited with all your achievements. Do you believe that does the hand of Providence (Supreme Being) played a role in your success?
Ms. J.A. Steel: I definitely believe in a High Power/Fate/Destiny whatever one wants to call it. I have had tremendous setbacks both professionally and personally. Looking back, at times I don’t know how I got through certain situations – there had to be some divine intervention.
