Since LCD Soundsystem disbanded in 2011, frontman James Murphy has crafted a presence for himself in the cinematic medium. The band’s final show became the subject of the acclaimed doc “Shut Up and Play the Hits,” and Murphy played a supporting turn in Rick Alverson and Tim Heidecker’s “The Comedy.”
Stepping behind the camera for the first time, Murphy has directed a short film as part of Canon’s Project Imagination, an initiative headed by Ron Howard in which public figures in another realm of creativity try to express themselves through the lens. Entitled “Little Duck,” the 16-minute piece chronicles a man’s return to his native Japan after his brother gets into trouble with the law.
