Musicwood Premiere!

Musicwood Premiere

Musicwood has its Premiere at DocNYC!

We have a premiere!!!! So wow. The last post was in July, and since then we’ve been editing like crazy, sound designing and mixing, music composing, color correcting, and just generally doing everything that needs to be done to get a film finished. And we’ve done it! Oh, along the way we got accepted into the DocNYC Film Festival which is pretty spectacular as well! So we literally just dropped the film off today (!!!!!) for the festival. We’re absolutely over the moon. And exhausted. If you happen to be in NYC next Tuesday, 11/13, please drop by and catch Musicwood at the IFC Cinema in the West Village. More details and ticket info can be found here. This is the summation of four and half years of work, and a ton of support from people like you who dropped by the website, donated, gave moral support, cared, etc. We are so excited to see what the next chapter of this experience will be. Join us for the ride!

Steve Earle interview

Steve Earle portrait by Hilary Benas

Steve Earle is in Musicwood! Thanks to the hard work and connections of our fantastic Music Supervisor Brandon, we were able to connect with Steve Earle when he was in town hosting 3 nights at City Winery for Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday. The interview was a blast, as Steve waxed eloquently about guitars, wood, the idea of sustainability and his guitar collection (which he said was “stupidly” huge). Steve is a Texas and Nashville legend, an actor in both The Wire and Treme, and a self-proclaimed “guitar freak”. He makes a very welcome addition to the roster of artists we have in the film. At this point, we’re so close to being done — we figure we just need one more A-list star. Many thanks to Mr. Earle, we’re sure you’re going to dig his parts of the film.

Fine Cut!

on our way

Well, we have reached the stage of the post-production process known as the “fine cut”. A step above the rough cut, the film now has the structure pretty much locked down, the scenes flowing, a lot of the pacing working, and it really feels like a film. We’ve put in a new temp music track — furnished for us by our new Music Supervisor — and the film is really feeling like it’s coming together. Which is exciting! We’re aiming to finish this August, so keep watching this space, the fun is just about to begin!
