Shop Talk :: Rebekah Porter Drops VHS Documentary For The Making Of ‘Henrietta And Her Dismal Display Of Affection’

It’s been a pleasure watching Rebekah Porter, a very talented visual artist in her own right, find new realms of expression in her time spent around the off-beat auteur that is Jeffrey Garcia.  With Henrietta and Her Dismal Display of AffectionGarcia‘s feature-length debut film, in the can and on the way out to the masses, Porter finally showed the world one of the projects she was working on : a VHS-filmed behind the scenes documentary about the daunting task that was making a feature-length film with unknown actors and essentially zero budget.  Check out the documentary for some interview footage from the many stars of the film, not to mention some candid moments between cast and crew.  If you dig it, leave a like and a comment, and be sure to share it around for everyone to enjoy!

Preserving History :: Mirage The Gr8’s ‘The Rhythm Still Plays’ Documentary Now Streaming

Mirage the Gr8 and myself have had a several year working relationship, and an even longer friendship.  The music video commissions he sends my way have made me a better editor and creator, in my opinion.  As the previous decade was coming to a close and 2020 was on the horizon, I envisioned myself making a documentary project of some kind, so when Mirage proposed his idea for The Rhythm Still Plays, a documentary celebrating the 20-year anniversary of his Good Vibe Records release Life Is A Rhythm (L.I.A.R.), I was all in.  I knew that it would be an important reflection of a big moment in the careers of he and Tee Double, but I had no idea that it would turn out to be a solid reflection of the era in Austin hip-hop that was the most inspirational for me as a young man.  Sit back, enjoy, leave a like and a comment if you dig it, and share it around for everyone to see!
