Different Town: The Movie

‘Different Town’ is a conceptual journey that was inspired, written, recorded and documented in 9 countries and over 11 cities including Rome, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York City, Frankfurt and Brussels to name a few. Amidst the making of the album, Carlson and friends filmed much of the recording process along with footage that inspired the songs. In an unfortunate attempt to save money by this sort of “guerilla recording”, the album and documentation exceeded the already high budget. Steve has teamed up with filmmaker Brent Florence to bring the story to life but we need your support to complete this amazing project. There are screenings in select cities planned for the movie. Additional funds that exceed our budget will go toward touring not only to US cities but ‘Different Towns’ internationally as well.

Risks and challenges

Our greatest challenge is to hold on to the integrity of the project and keep it as strong as it started. Cutting corners and taking shortcuts at this point would be a shame. On the other hand, waiting too long after the album's release could lose momentum and industrial value within the entertainment world.
