Back in the lab, back to the drawing board. The Year-round Metal Enjoyment edits continue. It's a long and daunting process, but we know it'll be worth the wait.
Still of the day from the Year-round Metal Enjoyment edits. RICH on electric nights.
"Some nights are just electric, and that never goes away for anyone who even remotely likes doing graffiti writing."
Summer always proves to be the busiest of seasons. Between work, travel, production and general life in the sun, there isn't much room left for slaving away on the computer.
We plan to send gifts out to those who donated to our Year-round Metal Enjoyment fundraiser this fall. So much thanks to all of those who gave to the cause, you are the enablers of these projects.
We are also very excited to have a new music video wrapped and in postproduction, featuring Jesse Pilgrim & The Bonfire of Maine. Stay tuned.
In-between all of this, we've tried to photograph as much as possible. Here are a few...
We have officially gone LIVE with our full length trailer and post-production fundraising campaign for Year-round Metal Enjoyment. You can see the trailer above and help us finish the project by going to our Indiegogo page here. Be sure to check out the donation gifts!
Felt it was necessary to share these films after seeing them on the circuit last month.
The Kill Team simply blew me away. A very important and informative film and with everything happening in the world today it is truly something everyone should experience.
Who is Dayani Cristal? is equally as illuminating and an important insight into the world of a boarder crossing immigrant.
A bit on the lighter side, Bending Steel is a compelling tale of a coy New Yorker striving to hone the strength and showmanship of the iconic vaudeville Strong Man. A classic.
A friend of Mint Films and co-author to the celebrated History of American Graffiti, Caleb Neelon has just dropped a heavy write up on one of our personal favorite freight legends, ICHABOD. We where fortunate enough to contribute a few photos to the project. Cheers!
A bit late on my True/False recap post, better late than never. Here are just a few of my recommended documentary films to see in 2013.
The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear
Cutie & The Boxer
Expedition to the End of the World
Sunday was the 4th and final day of our True/False adventure in Columbia, MO. David and I started the morning like each before it at Cafe Berlin, scoring another solid breakfast. The rest of my day was filled with 4 screenings, the Closing Night Reception and the Buskers Last Stand.
Each film was noteworthy in its own right, but my top choice would have to be Who is Dayani Cristal?, which had various elements that spoke to me.
In-between screenings I accidentally stumbled upon The Speculative Stroll of Columbia, guided by non other then Timothy "Speed" Levitch. A pleasant surprise, if you haven't seen The Cruise, you should.
The Closing Night Reception was classy, but I think the Buskers really took the show with a multi act performance around the main lobby of the Missouri Theater, featuring Maine's very own Toughcats. A really wonderful way to end such an eventful weekend.
T/F13 was truly an inspiring adventure and I will most definitely be coming back next year.
Cheers to the Maine crew: Jon, David, Ron, Lindsay & the Toughtcats!
Noteworthy film trailers and musicians to check out coming soon...
Day 3, David and I were right out straight with 4 films, a panel discussion on the DIY lifestyle and then some music with the Toughcats at Cafe Berlin to close out the night with the rest of the gang.
My standout film of the day had to be The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear which looks into the lives of about half a dozen young people from the country of Georgia. Simply a beautiful film.
On to the 4th and final day, back to Cafe Berlin for the third time.
