About three months ago on Four Eyed Monsters asked to be my friends on myspace. At first I was like what the hell is this then I decided to check out. It is actually a video pod cast that has been on going for the last year staring Arin Crumley and Susan Buice who met on online while being lonely in two different cities miles apart. They hit off and then they decided to document the formation of their relationship since both them are film makers. As a result of this collaboration they moved to New York to further pursue the project. They decided to use digital video as a medium to tell their story.
I should also mention that these podcasts feature some great indie rock as background music, some of the bands featured are Spinto Band, The Legends, The National Eyes, The Loveninjas, and The Golden Pastime. Over the last year or so hey have been able to get the actual film shown at various indie film festivals including Slamdance but now they want to take it to the people. Now in effort to do so since distributing a film cost a lot of money. They have chosen to distribute the film to the masses that want to see it.
On their website they recently had a contest to get to see it all you had to was vote for it and the cities with 150 votes or more would get chosen. The winning top 6 cities are New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Boston, Chicago and New York (for your own information C-town got 51 votes not great but not terrible). Starting tonight in those 6 cities they are showing the film at local theatres. They want to do the same thing with another group of cities next month all you have to do is get 150 votes for your city for them to show it in your town. Just about anything you could possible want to know about them and their project is on your their site so be their friend on myspace and go check out their unique and original movie.
