Film Fest Rejects

Go ahead, call me a sore looser. But that won't stop me from getting my rejected film shown last night during the film festival, even if it is guerrilla style, outside the orpeum and onto the Art Museum.

My Film, Crustacean Records: Drown Out The Daylights, may not have a bleeding heart narrative that is more attractive to film fest selection panel, but it an interesting collective of 10 bands of the 15year running punk label in the not surprisingly ignored midwestern music scene. Bands tell the story themselves in interviews and songs about what its like to be small, indie, and trying to make it in fly-over country.

These photos are from last night, but you can also watch the flick here or read more here ... 190.117.84

As Mr Typo I'm far from the one to mention it.


From the website:

"...this little label has become of the the key players in the Midwest music scene. Drown out the Daylights is the story of what of survival of a band in fly over country and how being it a band is survival itself for many musicians."

As people always tell me, the typos ain't helpin' anything.

Nice film tho'.

Sounds like a much better use of the projector than last year, when some douche just blasted music at way-too high volume from their iTunes playlist and twittered, and we all got the "pleasure" of seeing that while waiting in line...
