Director Statement

I grew up watching concert movies on the floor of my parents living room, from My Morning Jacket's 'Okonokos' movie, to more abstract and sprawling films such as Pink Floyd's 'Live at Pompeii' and U2's 'Rattle & Hum'. It only seems natural that my background in audio engineering and fascination with live music would lead me in the direction to create my own concert movie. I just want to spend every day making things with my friends.
