The Color of Noise - documentary

The Color of Noise is a full-length documentary about the artist Haze XXL (Tom Hazelmyer) and his label Amphetamine Reptile Records. Bands such as The Melvins, Helmet, Unsane, Boss Hog and Today Is The Day have either got their start with AmRep, or appear as regular guests on the label. From 1986-1998 Amrep often hired many upcoming graphic and street artists to create posters for shows, releases and tours. Some of those artists were Shepard Fairey, Frank Kozik, Coop and Ed Fotheringham- all who have become quite successful in their careers. This documentary will tell the story of Tom's early life as a hard core punk eventually joining the Marine Corp and moving on to playing in bands and starting his own label, Amphetamine Reptile Records. During the 90's Tom would find success in his hard work with Amrep, and turn to the art world for new inspiration- building a gallery behind one of his restaurants and hosting some of the most cutting edge pop artists of the time as well as raising a family and running a successful business. This film will highlight many of the label's bands and visual artists through mini bio-pics weaved throughout Tom's story.

Our small crew has conducted over 30 interviews and have planned another 20+ within the next two months. Editorial has started and we are raising funds for final completion which will involve sound mix and color correction. All of our Rewards are limited edition items created by those involved with the label's history! Our goal is to finish edit by Sept 2012.
