A project inspired by a curiosity to explore what a filmmaker and a musician can dream-up, create and execute when paired together, with a limited amount of time, direction and with mutual anonymity.
For our second installment of the A/VEC series, we recruited filmmaker, Zak Davis of Juliet Zulu, and Marmoset band, 1939 Ensemble. Once both parties were selected, Davis was given one month to create and produce a short film, which was then discreetly delivered (via Marmoset) to 1939 Ensemble, who then had 10 days to write, arrange and produce a complete live soundtrack.
Each step of the process challenging the participants to push creative boundaries and think beyond what is expected -- empowering both parties to throw comfort and control to the wind. The result? A one-time, intimate performance all happening live in front of an audience of friends, family and the greater creative community at Marmoset's studios.
