Our journey to make The 78 Project Feature-length documentary film starts today. This morning the Presto will be packed in snugly with a stash of blank discs and new needles, our Canons with a cache of memory cards and lenses. There will be no room left for anything else, so we might need to borrow your socks.
We are headed to Philadelphia, PA, Washington, DC, Durham, NC, Nashville and Memphis, TN, and points in between. This leg of the journey goes until early September, but we’ll be traveling for the film shoots for the rest of 2012, so we’ll be visiting many, many more places.
There will be photos every day, we promise. They’ll go straight to our Facebook, so “like” us there to see ’em! Also follow us on Twitter for daily news. If you’re on our Email list, we’ll catch you up each week on events and stories, and send you sounds and clips that we’ve captured. If you’re not signed up for our list yet, enter your email in the field on our homepage sidebar.
We’ve never been so excited as we are at this moment, preparing to meet new people, hear new songs, visit hometowns and hometown haunts and seek out music where it lives. We’re grateful to have you along for this adventure!
Thank you to our amazing new friends at Stumptown Coffee Roasters for fueling our mornings on the road!
