Into the Red

April 15, 2015

Check it out: I just received word that UK filmmaker Geoffrey Taylor‘s short documentary Into the Red can be streamed online on YouTube and Vimeo.

A fascinating look into the Redhead Days that takes place annually in Breda, The Netherlands, Geoffrey sets out to dig a little deeper into this phenomenon – as well as make some new friends.

A cool document about something I honestly had no idea existed (I’m brown haired), the documentary is short and to the point and gives a nice look into this unique gathering.

Check it out, spread the word, and if you’re a ginger you might wanna visit the Breda festival on their Facebook page as it has a whopping 90,000+ followers. My track Ginger (heard in the documentary) is available here.

Salad Days (update)

October 10, 2012

Well, great news for all of us that chipped in some money to finance Scott Crawford and Jim Saah‘s documentary Salad Days: The Birth of Punk Rock in the Nation’s Capital as the Kickstarter campaign ended today raising an impressive $54,920 – almost twenty thousand dollars more than needed! In an email sent out to the backers (all 980 of us) the filmmakers state:

We are overwhelmed by your support and enthusiasm for “Salad Days.” Thanks to you, we’ve surpassed even our stretch goal!

We’ll be finishing up our scheduled interviews in the coming months and starting on the final edit of the film. We’ll be keeping you informed of our progress with monthly updates and production photos. I can’t tell you how excited we are to complete “Salad Days” and share it with the world.

THANK YOU!

The project is due to be released June 2013 and I’m really looking forward to it! This is gonna be great.

Salad Days

September 10, 2012

Well, here’s a nice project due to be released in 2013: Scott Crawford and Jim Saah‘s Salad Days: The Birth of Punk Rock in the Nation’s Capital – a documentary focusing on the Washington, DC hardcore scene of the early 80s. Featuring interviews with tons of scenesters like Henry Rollins (S.O.A./Black Flag), HR (Bad Brains) and Dave Grohl (Scream) the pair is now looking for production funds via Kickstarter:

As we finish up the pre-production phase, we need your help. Your donations will offset the upcoming costs of editing, animation, graphics, mastering, color correction, sound editing, travel and more.

Pledges range from $10 (receive an autographed postcard) up to $3,500 (the filmmakers promise to build a shrine to you in their living room, plus other perks like a free DVD, t-shirt, poster etc.), so check it out here and write some encouraging words on their Facebook here.

UPDATE: Yeah, well, I just had to join in on this. The trailers look great, and there’s an amazing line-up of people being interviewed so I’ve got a good feeling about it!
