I’m constantly humbled by the talented people I get to be around. Last summer, Noelle (IC Communications Director) and I worked with some talented friends on a film called I AM NOT A HIPSTER, a fictional story about a small local musician dealing with the death of his mother.
Incredibly, this heartwarming film got into SUNDANCE and at a sold out screening, I got to shoot a live performance of the band featured in the film.
The amazing part about this band, CANINES, is that the songs were written by local San Diego artist (and KONY 2012 composer) Joel P West as if he were the character in the film. He then taught the actor playing the character, Dominic Bogart, how to play and sing the songs… which Dominic nailed… and then Dominic recorded an actual album as CANINES, the band from the film. Make sense??
