Yonkers and the Shake: A Film About Music

So I’m making a documentary about Michael Yonkers and The Blind Shake. They’ve been collaborating on some great music for a while now, and I decided to document it.

I flew out to Minneapolis to film the recording sessions for their upcoming record, and put together this trailer:

Over the course of this summer I’ll be shooting live shows of Michael Yonkers as well as The Blind Shake and at least one where they play together.

I’m shooting with a Panasonic AG-AF100 and my Canon 5D. As usual, I’ll edit in Premier Pro and grade in After Effects. I’ve always been more oriented towards post-production, so this is going to be a bit of a leap for me – which is exciting.

There is a website coming for that film, and I’ll post updates there, but it seemed worth mentioning here.
