A series of four short films by Vincent Moon shot at the legendary All Tomorrow’s Parties music festival in the UK.
We have just reached our funding goal! but please do keep pledging! there are great rewards still on offer and every $ / £ is much needed!
Four short films from four ATP festivals offering a fan’s eye view of one of the most unique and uncompromising music events in the world, shot by one of music’s most original and independent filmmakers.
The four films will be:
- From Smoke - Portishead’s Nightmare Before Christmas, narrated by Damo Suzuki.
- From Hybrid - Explosions in the Sky’s ATP, narrated by Saul Williams.
- The Melvins/Mike Patton curated Nightmare Before Christmas, narrated by Lydia Lunch
- 10 Years of All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, narrated by Josh Pearson.
Vincent Moon (the Take Away Shows) went to ATP as a fan on numerous occasions documenting his experiences each time. Some of his footage was used in the fan-sourced feature documentary All Tomorrow’s Parties (directed by All Tomorrow’s People and Jonathan Caouette - http://warp.net/films/atp). That film was completed and released in 2009 but Vincent continued to return to the festival and shoot as a fan, running around the site capturing the unique atmosphere and some incredible performances in his own inimitable style.
The edit for his first stand-alone short film was completed last year and the footage for the next 3 short films is in the can.
Please help us complete post-production so we can get the films out into the world for FREE! (after an exclusive 3 month period where they’ll be available for contributors only).
With your help we will edit a further trilogy of short films (each one approximately 30 minutes) in order to complete this unique project.
