First there was Richard Linklater's "Slacker", then that oddly awesome "Slackers" with Older Pete from from Adventures of Pete & Pete, and finally the seminal ska band of New York has their own name to add to the list with my newly completed documentary aptly named: "The Slackers: A Documentary".
The culmination of nearly three years of work, this feature length documentary trails the history of the band from their small two tone-esque beginnings to their present reign as one of the most respected American ska bands.
I can't tell you how many nights I've worked on this piece; shooting shows, hauling a golf bag full of makes shift light stands and tripods, sitting alone in the dark editing, testing colors and levels and hating the world. But finally the deals are in the works right now to make it available to the masses at your next local Slackers show.
More news to come.
