Backers,

Hope this note finds everyone well as the holidays approach. 'Tis the season for hot drinks and cuddling up. I hope you are all enjoying the album. The link to pass to your friends:

I just returned from a weekend in New York interviewing John and the band, as well as shooting rolls and rolls of city footage using old-school Super8mm film. We had some great discussions about making independent art, the album, the process, and what it means to live and make art in the city that never sleeps. I've posted two albums of photos for your viewing pleasure:

And an album of street and other photos I took while traveling through the city:

Capturing these photos was exciting, but I really can't wait to see what the Super8mm film footage looks like. It will be a perfect emotional fit for the album and film.

Like adding layers to the onion, the interviews and city footage will enrich and inform the footage of the session from back in March. It was a great weekend and I am excited to hunker down in the edit suite over the next few weeks.

In closing, here is a great clip of John playing on the subway. I didn't film it, but it really seems to capture the essence of music in the city. The din in the background is constant, yet people find time to close their eyes and tap their feet to the music. Check it out here: http://vimeo.com/33432459

Peace be with you over the holidays, and I look forward to keeping you all informed of my progress.
