PREVIEW – HOW WE GOT AWAY WITH IT


Mikal is a terrific actress, and an exciting singer/songwriter, who recently had a starring role in KISSES, CHLOE, and can also be seen -- as Sarah Palin’s assistant -- in GAME CHANGE.

Mikal is also a singer-songwriter. Her music has a strong, compelling, and sensual sound; many songs come with hooks that are hard to unhook from your brain. Southern influenced indie-rock, it is some of the most interesting and powerful popular music I’ve heard -- for its melodies, its background harmonies, its rhythms, its lyrics, and her performance (an emotional, clear, lovely sound with surprising flourishes).

Her lyrics seem to me highly suggestive of hidden histories, and somewhat inscrutable. They are sometimes hard (or impossible) to understand completely in performance, yet they complement the sound perfectly, and the sounds complement the words. Read from a page, the lyrics are complex and subtle poetry with layers of meaning and depth of feeling.

She says the music and the idea of the words often come together all at once; yet the words often start as incoherent syllables that slowly coalesce into the words that express the feeling of the song.

Much of Mikal’s music is available on sound tracks on the web and music videos on YouTube (see below). She plays often at venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn. (However, unfortunately, her last scheduled concert ‘til the Fall was just last night). To see and hear her live it pays to follow mikalevansmusic.com fairly closely, since she often posts events with little warning. She also has a signup for an e-mail alert. (But not every event is announced that way. So, again, closely follow the website!)

As an actress, her looks are highly mutable, and her performance always moving. Her acting page, mikalevans.com, gives three very different looks. Her highly professional and impressive reel shows how different (and convincing) she has looked in various roles. It’s interesting to compare her look in KISSES, CHLOE with her look today, at ease, and with her look while rocking-out in performance.

She also appears in a very interesting video format by the director of HOW WE GOT AWAY WITH IT. He calls it a Moving Portrait, and it is a one minute, wordless video in which Mikal simply looks at the camera.

Mikal’s first starring role was in KISSES, CHLOE (which also used her music) a 2010 Hamptons International Film Festival selection. Her most important role to date was as Sarah Palin’s assistant in GAME CHANGE where she appeared in many scenes with Julianne Moore. (Julianne called Mikal out near the top of her list during Julianne’s SAG Award thank-you remarks.)

In addition to HOW WE GOT AWAY WITH IT, which will be screened in New York on Saturday (after receiving a nice review following its screening at a Festival in Georgia), Mikal will be appearing in INNOCENCE (in which she is not very innocent), a film currently in post-production. After working on several music videos, Mikal will be directing her first narrative short film later this year.

She describes herself as a “maker”. She is most happy making music as a writer and performer and making films as a director and an actress.

Mikal talked with QPORIT on (3D!) camera about her music and the film.  Here are some excerpts from this interview. 

It looks best in full screen, and can be watched in 3D with red/cyan glasses or even on a 3D TV or NVIDIA 3D computer (and probably -- though that hasn't been tested yet -- on Nintendo 3D).

You can also watch it in NORMAL 2D.   Just click the 3D button at the bottom of the video and select Turn off 3D.

Mikal Evans is a major talent. She is intelligent, nice, friendly, and hard working. I think her music is superior, and her acting is versatile, attractive and sophisticated. She is ready to break-out!
