MOOG, a documentary film about Robert Moog, inventor of the modern synthesizer, is a portrait of the legendary figure in music and technology and his ideas about creativity, design, interactivity, spirituality and his collaborations with musicians over the years. It was an absolute honor to meet and work with such an amazing and inspiring individual. RIP Bob!
THE ALBUM LEAF
A documentary film by Holiday Matinee
For several years I was a band manager for The Album Leaf (i.e. singer/songwriter and multi-talented Jimmy LaValle). We had traveled all around the globe – to Japan, Paris, Belgium, Germany, Taiwan, England and practically every State in America. I had licensed his music to national television shows and advertising campaigns along with getting him signed to various record labels and publishing companies. It was a good run and we were having the time of our lives. In 2004, Jimmy was heading to Iceland to record his new album at Sigur Ros’ studio. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to document the experience. The record company wasn’t interested so I decided to fund it myself. I really wanted to capture the personality and creative process during this recording as I knew it was gonna be magical. And sure enough, when it was all said and done, the label wound up including this on the album and it’s since gone on to sell over 25,000 copies worldwide.
