Video Mixtape Out Now & Meet Our Editors!
Hi everybody! It's been a little while since you've heard from us here on Kickstarter. Most of you who backed our project have filled out your backer surveys on BackerKit, and almost all of you should have received your physical reward items in the mail. We just have a few final packages to send, but everyone who's completed their survey should have their items arrive before the holidays.
If you're a backer, yesterday you should have received an email from BackerKit notifying you that "Live At Other Music" -- an album-length video mixtape of in-store performances -- is now available for download or streaming. The Dropbox link will only be active for 30 days so please take this opportunity to download the file. We're really excited for people to hear the amazing music on the mixtape!
For the past few months we've been hard at work shooting new interviews with people like Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna), Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), Lizzy Goodman (author of Meet Me In The Bathroom: Rebirth And Rock And Roll In New York City 2001-2011) and William Basinski (The Disintegration Loops) and cutting the film -- and we've made a ton of progress! Thanks to your generous support we've had the privilege of working with two incredible editors:
Amy Elizabeth Scott is the director and editor of Hal, the Hal Ashby documentary premiering in competition at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival (congrats Amy!). A graduate of The University of Oklahoma’s Film and Video Studies program, Amy has been making films, commercials, music videos and shorts for over 15 years. In the past, she worked as a media producer for the University of Chicago, a documentary film instructor at Chicago Filmmakers, head digital archivist to Studs Terkel at the Chicago History Museum and editor/music supervisor for The Kindling Group. Her work has premiered at Sundance, SXSW, TIFF, HotDocs, and Frameline and has been exhibited on the Sundance Channel, IFC, PBS, HBO and Logo.
Greg King is the editor of the documentary City Of Gold (about Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold) and the forthcoming A Place We Have Been To: The Elephant 6 Documentary. His directing work spans documentary films, narrative shorts, experimental art films, music videos, and non-profit promos. His films have played such festivals as Hot Docs, Edinburgh, Ann Arbor, Rooftop, deadCenter, and the Brooklyn Film Festival, and his visual art has been exhibited across the country in numerous galleries, artist-run spaces, and museums. He was the recipient of an NEA/Regional Artist Fellowship, an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award, a Harvey Fellowship, and a Jerome Foundation Project Grant, among other grants and awards. King was a member of the indie-classical ensemble rachel's, and toured with the band from 1995 to 2006 across the US, Canada, and Europe.
We're so happy with the progress we've made so far thanks to you, our Kickstarter backers, and we believe that the film is on track to be entered into festivals by the end of 2018. Stay tuned for more news as we have it, and Happy Holidays!
