My good friend and frequent collaborator, Erick Sasso, is currently working on a film that will become his thesis, and in my opinion, is some of his best work to date. Erick Sasso is one half of the production duo known as Chain Gang Productions, the other half being another good friend of mine, Brian Wendelken. Brian is also in the early stages of his thesis film, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see his work come into fruition as well. If you’ve seen EOTC’s video for “Headfirst in the River” or the Skatefest footage, or the NK Basement Tapes #2 teaser shot down in Philly, then you’re familiar with their incredible body of work. That’s only a small portion of what they’ve done with me, and an even smaller portion of their growing portfolio.
I’m going to be providing music for Erick’s film, which I’m very excited about. I’ll be stepping outside my comfort zone and into a character (literally and figuratively) in order to provide the score/backdrop for this piece.
If you thought records cost a lot of money to make, you wouldn’t believe how much films cost. So, Erick is currently trying to gather funds from anywhere that he can in order to get the ball rolling on this project.
