*yes, yes it was coincidence.
On Burning, director Vincent Moon worked with Mogwai; on A Skin, A Night, he worked with The National; for La Blogothèque’s Take-Away Shows, he worked with the likes of Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective. Now, he (in conjunction with Warp Films and All Tomorrow's Parties) wants to work with you.
For over a decade, All Tomorrow’s Parties’ holiday camp weekenders have delighted and damaged the ears of scores of discerning music lovers (on cold days, our lugs still ring from Boris…), and for several of those years, Moon has been there with camera in hand. Raw footage for four short films is in the can, but to complete them, Moon needs moolah – which is where you (potentially) come in.
Contributions are being sought via crowdfunding site Kickstarter, but with just over a day to go before the deadline, the pot’s short. Should a last-minute surge push the total over the line, Moon promises an intriguing quartet of flicks, plus you'll receive 'rewards' in the form of CDs, DVDs, posters, film credits, festival tickets, or even a personal film to you from the man himself (nothing sexy, mind).
Each short will feature a different guest narrator’s thoughts on ATP, the universe and everything – the Portishead-curated event seen through the eyes of Damo Suzuki; the Explosions in the Sky festival brought to you by Saul Williams; The Melvins/Mike Patton double header via Lydia Lunch; and ATP’s tenth birthday celebrations filtered through party-starter extraordinaire Josh T. Pearson. If any/all of those sound like your cup of tea, hot-foot it to the pledge site via the link on the right post haste – the clock’s ticking.
