WOW!  WOW!!  WOW!!!  

Thank you to EVERYONE who's backed this project.  We made our first stretch goal with 3 days to go...and now we're going to STRETCH AGAIN!  Let's take this to $35,000 (and beyond) so we can film even more live shows, and spend more time with the band on the road.  Every dollar just makes the film bigger, better, louder...everything you want from rock and roll! 

From the director of "Color Me Obsessed, a film about The Replacements" comes the story of our next great rock and roll legend.  

  • “If you believe in Rock ‘N’ Roll, you pray for people like Lydia Loveless.” -PopMatters.com

"WHO IS LYDIA LOVELESS?" is a feature-length documentary that will follow Lydia and her amazing band in the studio as they lay down tracks for their upcoming record.  

We will interview Lydia at the locations most important to her development as a musician, covering every topic imaginable.  Here's just a sampling of some of the topics:

  • Her early upbringing.
  • Signing with Bloodshot Records at a SXSW showcase and the critical acclaim of her next two albums.
  • Life on the road.
  • Being married to a member of her band.
  • The pressures and finances of being famous enough to pack a small venue but still traveling in a van.
  • What can a performer in her position expect to earn on the road?  
  • What is it like for a strong woman in a rock and roll world which is unfortunately so male-driven?   
  • How does she battle the inherent sexism?  
  • What are the expectations for her and the band with this next record?  
  • Who are her idols?  What music rocks her world?
  • What are her inspirations, her guilty pleasures, the hardest parts of this career?  
  • What makes her laugh or cry?  
  • What annoys the hell out of her?  (Other than all the questions I'll be asking, of course.)
Lydia has already started a folder!
Lydia has already started a folder!

Live performances will bookend each act of the film.  We will capture the full band live with seven cameras, and make you feel like you're at the show.  We will capture an intimate song or two with just Lydia and her guitar.

  • “Her defiant tone is matched by songs that put country and punk on equal ground, unvarnished and direct.” -- Chicago Tribune

We will show you why Lydia Loveless is quite simply the most important new artist in rock music today.  Here is a much longer article written by the film's director going into a lot more detail.

Who (exactly) is Lydia Loveless?

Two years after the critical success of her breakout second album (her first on Bloodshot Records), Indestructible Machine, Lydia Loveless emerged from the trenches of hometown Columbus, OH with the gloves off and brimming with confidence on 2014's Somewhere Else. While her previous album was described as “hillbilly punk with a honky-tonk heart” (Uncut), this one can’t be so quickly shoehorned into neat categorical cubbyholes. No, things are different this time around—Loveless and her band have collectively dismissed the genre blinders and sonic boundaries that come from playing it from a safe, familiar place.

Writing from this new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted 10 songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination, and openness. Somewhere Else is more elemental than any of Loveless’s previous material; it’s about longing for the other, whether that’s something emotional, physical, or mental, all anchored by her arresting voice that sounds beyond her years. Creatively speaking, if Indestructible Machine was an all-night bender, Somewhere Else is the forlorn twilight of the next day, when that creeping nostalgia has you looking back for someone, something, or just… anything.  Its release led to her being named a New Artist You Need to Know by both Rolling Stone and Spin.

  • "Sounds like: Loretta Lynn and Patti Smith slamming shots at a Midwestern dive bar while cowboys and punks brawl out back......her break out album, Somewhere Else, is an aching, lusty set of twang and sneer wrapped in electric guitar swagger" -- Rolling Stone

Blessed with a commanding, blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, the 23-year-old Lydia Loveless was raised on a family farm in Coshocton, Ohio—a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. With a dad who owned a country music bar, Loveless often woke up with a house full of touring musicians scattered on couches and floors.

When she got older, in the time-honored traditions of teenage rebellion, she turned her back on these roots, moved to the city (Columbus, OH) and immersed herself in the punk scene, soaking up the musical and attitudinal influences of everyone from Charles Bukowski to Richard Hell to Hank III.  

  • "Uncompromising and direct, Loveless is one of those rare songwriting voices that seem destined to be sharing music with us for a long, long, time." -- Paste Magazine

Who is this Gorman Bechard guy?

Directing WHO IS LYDIA LOVELESS? is Gorman Bechard, the filmmaker behind COLOR ME OBSESSED, A FILM ABOUT THE REPLACEMENTS.  That movie has gone on to earn critical praise from places like Rolling Stone, which called it one of "The Seven Best New Music Documentaries of the Year," and The Village Voice, which called it "a rock version of Rashomon."

"This is a film about an incredibly talented young woman and an amazing group of musicians who are keeping the rock and roll tradition of bands like The Replacements alive,"explains Gorman. "After three rock docs about three iconic and legendary groups, I wanted to focus on someone up and coming in the music industry.  Someone who combined the rock and roll spirit with great song writing and personality.  As soon as I saw Lydia play live for the first time, I knew who that would be."

Read Gorman's review of that first Lydia show HERE.

Gorman is also the director of the Archers of Loaf concert documentary, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?, the Grant Hart/Hüsker Dü documentary EVERY EVERYTHING, and the award-winning narrative features FRIENDS (WITH BENEFITS)YOU ARE ALONE and BROKEN SIDE OF TIME.  You can read an interview with Gorman Bechard in FilmMaker Magazine here.

Producing the film along with Gorman is Jan Radder, who was the Supervising Producer on COLOR ME OBSESSED and Co-Producer of EVERY EVERYTHING.  And shooting the film along with Gorman is Sarah Hajtol, one of the principal cinematographers on all of Gorman's documentaries.  Also along for the ride when shooting the live show will be award winning cinematographer Adrian Correia.

Our company, the micro-studio What Were We Thinking Films, has a proven track record and nearly thirty years of experience making feature films.  

This film will get made, it will play film festivals, it will screen in theatres (check the list of COLOR ME OBSESSED screenings just to the left of the answering machine), and you WILL receive your backer prize.

Where Your Money Goes

Though we own all our own equipment from cameras to lighting gear to editing software, and despite the fact that everyone is working for no pay, we still have plenty of expenses because even on a micro-budget making movies isn't cheap.  The money you donate to WHO IS LYDIA LOVELESS? will go towards paying for (among other things): transportation, food, and lodging expenses so we can travel out to Columbus to interview Lydia, and to where the new record is being recorded; large hard drives to store all the hours of footage we shoot; the rights to use music, artwork, and archival footage in the film; and film festival submission fees.

Now, we're asking for $27,500, but honestly we're hoping for a lot more.  With COLOR ME OBSESSED we had to do several KickStarter campaigns.  With your help, we can limit that to only one for this film.

And if we go well beyond the campaign goal, we should be able to bring in a top notch producer to record the live show.  The more we raise, the more goodies we can pop into the film, and on the DVD as extras.  The more time the crew can spend with Lydia and her band getting great footage.  Let's aim for $50,000!  (No, really...let's!)

What Happens If We Don't Reach Our Goal?

If we fail to reach our funding goal, we get absolutely nothing.  That means you keep any money you've pledged to donate.  We only get the money you pledge (and your credit card is only charged) if and when we successfully fund our project.  So please give what you can, because every little bit helps.  And spread the word to every rock and roll fan you know.  Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We always finish our films. They always get distribution. That's is never an issue. The biggest problem for us is finishing everything on time. Documentaries take on lives of their own. In a perfect world, the film will be done and playing festivals in early 2016. But this isn't a perfect world. So worst case, it takes a little longer than we expected to deliver the DVDs and other rewards. But you will get them, and the film will only be better for it.
