Project of the Day: Being a Member of Husker Du in 'Every Everything'
Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.
In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.
A rock 'n' roll "Fog of War" about Husker Du's Grant Hart, one of the most influential musicians of the last 30 years.
William S. Burroughs, Groucho Marx, Studebakers, rare books, Marcel Duchamp, Freemasons, obscure history, diatribes against chain hotels. Sit down with Grant Hart for even a few minutes and chances are it will be one of the most fascinating conversations you've had in some time.
In 1979, Grant co-formed punk band Hüsker Dü and blazed a new sonic trail which gave way to every rock song heard since.
"Every Everything" will tell the story of his life: influences, obsessions, loves, passions, art, music, and everything in between. Grant Hart as told only by Grant Hart: the good, the bad, the ugly.
Director/Producer/Editor: Gorman Bechard
Producer: Jan Radder
Cinematographers: Adrian Correia & Sarah Hajtol
About the Production:
"After interviewing Grant for "Color Me Obsessed," I realized his was the ultimate rock story. Grant Hart has seen it all, done it all. And for anyone who's ever spent an hour with the man, you quickly realize he's one of the most captivating story tellers you will ever meet. And by giving him the "Fog of War" treatment, I want to break music documentaries out of their "where-are-they-now" mold, and prove they can be inspiring, vibrant, and original, and play not just to fans of the subject, but stand as works of art that speak to the human condition." -Gorman Bechard
We've just started filming and raising funds. Filming will be completed in August 2012.
