I have always been curious to investigate and create a documentary about the Indie music production in New York City, specially in the Lower East Side, which was for a long time a tremendous location for independent music production.
But today, the Brooklyn music scene is also getting world widely known with record labels such as DFA, Captured Tracks and Partisan Records. This tendency is constantly growing with music venues opening all over Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick and musicians from all over the world gathering there in search of gigs and fame.
What are the secrets of the Brooklyn music scene success? Is this movement genuine or rather the product of the Brooklyn ‘hipster’ tendency? How is it changing neighborhoods and how does it affect its communities?
The Brooklyn Music Scene documentary aims to answer these questions by following independent record labels, emerging artists and bands, and by visiting the best music venues and record stores in Brooklyn.
The Jump! WTF Experience is a documentary released at Festival de Cannes 2016 and Directed by Carme Puche, which depicts the blossoming of more than a hundred young musicians in Barcelona. Breathtakingly talented but under the radar, they are struggling now as others have struggled in the past.
The Jump! is an observational documentary about a group of talented young musicians during what has been called ‘the abysmal year’ of Spain. But it is also a call to look to the past, to truly understand where we come from, despite not quite knowing how to navigate our path into the future.
This film was made on E 19 St. between Foster Av. and Glenwood Rd. in Brooklyn as part of On My Block Films, a film challenge that brings together communities by inviting them to create short films using the residents of their block as cast and crew.
New York is a crowded and busy city. Its inhabitants rarely meet with the people living around them. On My Block Films creates an opportunity for neighbors to introduce themselves, to work together, and to create trusted relationships through a collaborative filmmaking process.
