Congratulations to “A Life in the Death of Joe Meek” directors Susan Stahman and Howard S. Berger. The project received the most votes to win October’s Project of the Month. The prize is a creative consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
Here’s a look at the film’s pitch:
The documentary shows how Meek managed to leave an indelible stamp, not just on the music industry, but on modern pop culture as well — due in equal measures to his groundbreaking DIY recording techniques, hit-making philosophy and a life full of social, psychological and sexual obstacles. Over 40 years after his tragic and, still, somewhat mysterious death, Meek has been reborn as an inspirational icon for anyone in search of the Independent Spirit.
