About this project


The BizNash is an independent comedy from Nashville filmmakers, Aaron Thomas and Aaron Clark, about a big-fish-in-a-small-pond rock band who leave their small town fame to discover the real world of the music industry in Nashville.  The BizNash is a film that will give outsiders a look inside the reality of the music industry in Nashville and insiders a unique impression of the changes that are surging through every aspect of the music business.  Don't worry though, this is by no means an education film.  This is a true-to-life comedy that will have you laughing and saying "thats so Nashville" as you experience all the exitement, heartache and ridiculousness that Nashville has to offer, through the eyes of 5 wide-eyed musicians and one hyperactive groupie. 


As long-time Nashvillians, we are very aware of the major shift happening in the business and want to shine light on the emergence of the growing do-it-yourself mentality and the world of independent music as well as the contrasting realm of record labels.  The script for the feature is based on true stories that we have gathered from real people here in Nashville- like our friend who slept in a tent on the Belmont campus for a while and now can be heard on everything from Willie Nelson albums to Grey's anatomy soundtracks.  Or our friend who ended up stocking his own chart-topping record at Wal-mart.  The film will feature local nashville artists and bands, actors, venues, and landmarks, as does the short prelude that we have already filmed.

Watch this prelude right now for free on our website, thebiznash.com, for an introduction to the characters and the story.  We are proud of this piece and everyone who helped us put this together.  It was an exciting, gorilla-style, independent shoot and we had a lot of fun filming.  We hope is expresses our intentions and shows how serious and capable we are of making this feature length film.  In the feature, we will retain the independent quality that the prelude possesses but we also look forward to having the means to step up our game in several aspects of the production.  We hope you enjoy the prelude and get in on the awesome perks available when you contribute to our kickstarter fund!  Thanks in advance for your support.
