Broke Reprised

Will Gray

Year: 2016

Runtime: 01:23:44

Broke* begins with the question, “Is it possible for an artist to break?” Following on-the-verge artist Will Gray through the recording of his debut album, “Honeysuckle Wine” (featuring production oversight by Grammy Award-winning producer, T Bone Burnett), Broke* chronicles the stories of artists and executives searching for ways to thrive in the face of today’s music industry challenges. The film digs beneath the clichés and standard story lines to reveal an industry struggling to find a new identity and an artist who’s simply trying to establish one. Featuring candid interviews with industry insiders and intimate profiles of some of the brightest emerging musical talent in the country. With appearances from John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Isaac Slade of The Fray, Seth Godin, and Buddy Miller. The question Broke* asks evolves throughout the film, as does Will’s definition of “breaking.” After Will’s passing in 2013, his team worked to tell the rest of his story, sharing his journey as an artist. Can a new act be “broken” and what does “breaking” mean to the industry, the artist, and the fan?

  • Trovadores

    Various Artists

    Year: 2014

    Runtime: 1 hr 13 min

    Troubadours is the story of four musical artists finding success, but nobody really knowing about it. Diego, Alvaro, Lorenzo and Julio all share the same town, an other-worldly and enigmatic city that protects them for days on end. Troubadours is a reflection on art and fame, unafraid of reaching into its insanity. It finds the adequate rhythm to portray the drives of different persons who have left everything behind them, and now keep forging ahead irrevocably. The magic to be found a gaze, the concealed beauty of an ordinary town or the sheer greatness of the insignificant are the overarching notions and ideas of this film.

  • Episode 1: Fuck Art Let's Dance

    London Calling The Untold Story Of British Pop Music 

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 53 min

    "Fuck art let's dance!" proclaimed the famous slogan on a post-punk T-shirt, expressing the rebellious musical spirit that thrived in art colleges at the time. Ironically it was precisely this spirit that had led to British art colleges contributing to pop music culture on a scale unmatched elsewhere. The new role of art schools as a social melting pot in the 1960s, and their policy that everyone had to study a broad-based arts curriculum before being allowed to specialise, resulted in a new cultural playground where musical passions and fresh ideas flourished. Every British pop band contained at least one art school graduate and many, from Roxy Music and Wire to Franz Ferdinand, formed entirely at art school. Pete Townshend's legendary Union Jack jacket - often misinterpreted as patriotism - was a pure pop art statement, deconstructing the national flag as fashion, and the band's clever conceptual collection The Who Sell Out was the result of manager Kit Lambert "encouraging my art school ambitions". Even scruffy rebels like The Sex Pistols owed their aesthetic to art college graduates Malcolm McLaren and Jamie Reid's love of the Situationist and Dadaist movements, and every band that hadn't met at art college boasted an art college graduate, or found itself steered, styled, sloganised, photographed and reported on by their like. This opening episode examines the reasons behind this phenomenon, and asks if this uniquely British impulse has run its course.

Combining the best of independent art house cinema within the hip hop mix tape format, the film features legendary battles from New York to LA, including The Lyricist Lounge, Project Blowed, and The Wake Up Show! The artists featured in the film, from Mos Def to Notorious BIG provide insight into one of the least seen faces present in the music: improvisation and creativity. Structured with insights from the Last Poet's esteemed Abioudun Oyweole and jazz & rap historians Freestyle connects the dots from the pain and love of yesterday's poets to today's hip-hop innovators. Revealing the art forms stunningly emotional outlet; whether sharing energy in a street corner cipher for block cred or a stadium's commercial rap performance full of 1,000s of paying fans. Like the Griots of Africa or the wail of Coltrane's saxophone, today's hip-hop MCs all have a similar purpose: to share their experience with others hungry for truth, community and healing.
