Sweethearts of the Video is:
the video version of a literary quarterly, curating a cadre of filmmakers under a single theme to create content of pop-song length and art-world breadth.
Turning a group pop art show into episodic television, SoTV branches into a multitude of genres, including Documentary, Narrative, Sketch Comedy, Dance, Art, Music, Stand-up Comedy, Animation and more.
Now, why am i telling you this?
Well, because Sweethearts of the Video is my co-creation with my collaborators Matthew F Smith, Paul Newman & Ross Steeves.
Together, we've made hundreds of online videos and the feature film The Light of Love.
And this represents a particularly satisfying culmination of our collaboration as we've sought to expand our palette and our community with this, for lack of a better term, "show."
For this first edition, each of us took a category and made our own film and brought it back to the collective for shaping and we reached out to some of our cinema-artist friends to swell the ranks, all inspired and riffing on the theme and we're very excited about our collaborators - from folk artist Shrine to dancer Anthony Greenz to one-man-band loop-maestro extraordinaire Dub FX
Our desire is for this to be the launching pad for many relationships with other filmmakers, deepening of old kinships and forging of new ones. We hope SoTV will grow to become a epicenter of our filmmaking community, a place to stretch, challenge, experiment and rejoice.
My sincere desire is for you to come celebrate this launch with me.
i hope to see you there!
