"Recognition or understanding of the importance of our food is grown that we were on really early. Are we just buttering ourselves up here. Are we making ourselves. Seemed like the coolest guys on well. It's exciting i. It is yes we are. It's exciting to be able to look back in. Be proud of. I think work we played. I just think it was personally. I'm proud of the idea. That was a different model. I'm looking at like american movie to me. Is probably in certain. Ways like shining moment and that came about. Because we met chris smith and sarah price at probably at sundance when chris was there with american job and he told us all about this other film. This was one of the oddest stories but this is totally representative of how we worked that same year. You were there. We were there for other stuff may have been girls to ten year. It was the girls ten. We were there showing girls town premiering girls down and you had been in touch with mtv and they were doing this very odd series of thirty second spots right could be about anything you want it to be about so just describe what sweat. I decided that spot should be called. Orange is the new black. I don't know why i was staying. In a shitty condo with a kind of nineteen seventy s op. Art orange painting behind the couch and inviting people over after After films and and drinking and hanging out on the couch. And i looked up. And i saw the orange. I was like well do that. That's orange is. The new black was my. I wonder if that's available. What if he can find the Yeah i actually have it. Yeah i don't know if it's online isn't jimmy devolved intimidate Grace an integration. It's so fucking funny. Golden so funny and brian. Cates edited it and of course. This was nine hundred ninety five so was about two decades before the tv show called. Orange is the new black and it has nothing to do with women in prison so. Mtv was getting artists to do these things and paying a very large amount of money as if it was a commercial. 'cause it was gershon for mtv so we made this thing in the condo. They're on like probably like a high eight camera and went out to the supermarket and bought a bunch of props for seventy dollars. And then we're able to you know couple months later. Send chris and sarah fifty thousand dollars to continue to shoot american movie. 'cause they weren't finished filming and we're like hey would you sent to us. Looks great sounds. Here's this money and they. You know six nine months later chris gets back to me is like hey guys we have an edit to yeah and then at that point we got further evolved definitely more evolved with watching cuts. We're never like onset or anything but we able at that point to put in another chunk of money and then the film came out. It did really well. We got our money back. That was one of the few projects where we actually got the money back. Did we pay ourselves or this that anything. No we took that money and we were able to put that in two other films which might have been treated or might have been brother to brother or coming up much much later. A film like foreplay by kyle henry. So whole idea was we're not doing this to make money so any money we make ever and as i got further established and i was sort of making stuff that i actually got paid on. We were able to take production company fees from those things from films like everyday people are injured rigas and again. They didn't come to us and go into our pockets. They just allowed us to then give money to filmmakers. It's a really as backwards business model But it's not look what we made yet. We helped make. I mean look what we create it was. It was wonderful. It was super cool. was wonderful. The christmas thing really came full circle from a couple years ago. I got invited to it. Was a documentary starring. Jim carey about the making of men on the moon and how he got really deeply into the character of andy kaufman so i met him on that film because it was the the whole film project was started because of this. The rams man on the moon about andy. Kaufman kind of raised us interest in him. And i went to the opening at moma here in new york and I was i saw spike jonze. I was like oh. Hey spike has on your here. And he's like well. Yeah i i. I am executive producers. I'm like that's awesome. How cool or are you going to stay later. Y'all be here after the film. They were doing a conversation with jim carrey so then the credits roll and it's christmas is director of the thing. I had no idea. I just went up. You know because this is gonna interesting. They're all on stage talking about it after the film and spike references me and pulled me out of the audience and they put another chair up there and i was like wow. This is so cool. Because here's jim carrey who. I met through the film that came from a song. Here's spike jones. Who i worked with with the other phone company that i had at the time for his first feature. And here's chris. Smith who i met through and we worked with him on his first feature and it felt like this kind of beautiful like i felt like graduating class or something of creative people have kind of all come together in this confluence and the documentary was actually quite fleeing good. We financed a crazy. Fuck and movie. memorial day. It was the first thing. Josh fox made that almost no one scene but is kind of amazing and he went on to make land gasoline to and his doing tons of stuff in both political in the film world and then he wound up hanging out together on the campaign trail bernie sanders in two thousand sixteen which was a great way to kind of bring him back into the fold. So yes i think it's definitely something to be proud of. And maybe under our thirty fifth anniversary which is next year is a good lord like to some screenings or something. I would love that between now than that. We really have to get their website up. That would be that'd be. We've got a year excellent. I was trying to figure out a good. I'm i'm sitting here going. How do i say this into this. Other thing i want i wanna talk to arena tonight. Does this week or doing tonight. We might be taking a break for a week. Okay all right no i. I wanted to talk to 'cause like again. My my experience in athens was having you there too. You know you saw something in my work. In me in my. I don't know what in my brain or my you know had really created that much work at that point and really really supported that and i saw that all around you all the time. You also have a real. You really have your finger on the pulse. I think of younger artists and youthful younger energy in our and i see you showing that support in many many different ways all the time. And it's something i admire. 'cause i'm i feel like sometimes i feel very curmudgeonly about my. You know. I don't know. I can be skeptical of the kids at times and then at the same time i have to realize that i am also when i see a young person stuff that i actually connect with in a big way. I jump in do say. Hey you know. Let me see if i can help you make this next thing. Whatever so it's there. But i just think you're just you've got this really like open. It's like a war e kind of thing and it's impressive to me. It's obviously useful to you as an artist as well. You want to talk about that now. Well i mean. I think what you're referring to guess atrocity in a desire to not kind of feel stuck in not only a generational stuck as we age and not opening ourselves up to new ideas and new things that are coming along and the language of a younger generation. But i got that curiosity. I think mostly through my mother and she just has this. Immense love of life and people in a curiosity has enviable. So i think. I got that honest. You know from her. I almost went up. Flip and say. I've always felt that way about you. You know that you you have this intellect and this gentleness to you but also within the gentleness is a real desire to create a dialogue about issues and some of them are very human and some of them are more political in nature that works. Its way into your work as a filmmaker. It also manifests itself very deeply in your life. I mean you're the one who has kids who have taught me about things that i wouldn't have known because i don't have kids about their generation about about their circles of friends in their interests. Just being around them from time to time but you also have this group of people many of whom you met through the work that you did as a filmmaker but by that you've mentor to use an often overstated word and thomas. same way. You know. Tom go roy. You guys are both find people that have something that you see that maybe other people don't see and you're like encourage push this person to create to take photographs to develop their interest in film to right and these. Are you know when you have a barbecue at your place. Those are the people. I meet over and over and over again again. Lisa collins is a great example of it brought her back into my sphere and in this past year when i really needed i needed her. Particular brand of surreal humor. You know to help me through lockdown. She was there she and her partner kept me laughing at times. I didn't know maybe had forgotten how to laugh on. Nice i mean maybe that's something that we both share. Because i don't think of myself that way you know i. I have this reputation in the in the world of music for having mentored these younger pee on. It's really a always never never feels like that to me. It just feels like with us is a relationship in a friendship. And then maybe you give perspective just through your honesty to a situation or you tell someone you know. This is when you need to breathe like. Don't forget to breathe like it's important to breathe mentoring as much as kind of being completely present and acknowledging while we all go through periods where it's good to hear someone else's perspective. The thing that's really shared is the curiosity part. I think as a maker you know that your number one tool that you number one instinct. But i guess for me like my work starts from like a story point you know and it's so my curiosity is always just about watching people. They don't even have to be people. I know into actually usually they're not but just kind of being out there and You know when. I i had this moment like three weeks ago. Four weeks ago had a couple since then of being out in public being one was in the gory park in. Green point. And one was actually in manhattan. Last week i was out sitting on park benches and just watching people again and being able to overhear conversations like an. It just occurred to me. How absent that was. I knew going into this time. I remember one of the last days in it. Was you know in march when it was clear. That two city was gonna shut down to some degree. I remember being out neighbors even a little later than that. 'cause remember it was kind of warm out and i was in chinatown. I think it was just walking. And i was like watching this one person in particular kind following them a little bit just you know. I'm always going like he might be what my next movies about. She might be the you know and thinking. What's gonna happen if if you get parker or wonder if i can't do this then having a year where you couldn't do it. Yeah a year divorced from that. You know and i know that your antenna is totally focused in that way too but also as a visual artist which is all it's always storytelling. But i think there's a visual cultural element to your curiosity that i've maybe don't have quite as much whereas you're just constantly just zeroing in on influence inspiration inspiration. I think everywhere and it could just be a random piece of ms painted something but it's not necessarily an artist's work but oftentimes it is you know and i just. I think i've always wanted to be more open about that. I think that my brain goes toward in a weird way to in the opposite direction. Like when i think about how much. I admire like two people who admire as filmmakers an immense amount timber. And frederick wiseman and who. Basically i've said in a somewhat facetious thing. But it's like they've something. We made the same movie over and over like they don't change. What do they change the subject of it every time but they're locked into this thing and their career artists in that way. They found their thing. And they do it. And i love i just. There's something about that. That i just really connect to and i guess in a way that's the opposite of this other thing which is like taking in a youthful young newly discovered method of creating or technology. Or whatever and putting it into your work and thinking about your films and it feels like you in a way you've kind of done the same thing with the dynamic within a group and experiences that you don't necessarily have on a personal level but it's a bit but and you've done that over and over and over again as well true you're right and i do think in this past year in the last couple months someone asked me. My sister has me like. Are you thinking about a new movie. You got something you know you want to do. And i was like no right away. I said no and i've never said no. I've never since the first movie i made. I've always been thinking about. I can't wait till make another and all of a sudden. I'm kinda like not feeling that but i am feeling drawn toward a change in the work which is partially. I think this jericho walk documentary. That i'm working on with. Some collaborators is about just to try and break out even further from the narrative structure and into something. That's a little bit more experimental in some way which is exciting. I mean you're in the middle of making jerk awada. Does it feel interstitial. It doesn't it. Feels like maybe a shift in direction as a poem. Acre can't tell. Can you describe a little bit. Because i know what it's an open listeners. Doom jericho observational. It's exp semi experimental documentary about action. That was taking place every thursday. A one eleven. Am for seven years at the twenty six federal plaza which is the immigration building downtown manhattan and free his almond and jeff record and i went there less winter and filmed it in real time with ten cameras. Ten collaborative camera people. We're trying to figure out what it is really but it's a completely completely different. Non narrative undertaking. I think spent a lot of years kind of in the back of my mind thinking or waiting for someone to give me money to make my kind of movie but bigger and i think the latte finally with annals up toward the i think it finally just really sunk in like that's not gonna happen and it might not have happened. It might be not happened because you don't really really want to and under no. I mean it doesn't matter really why didn't happen but i don't think it's going to happen. I don't know if i care anymore. I think now. I care more about avoids cared about making the kind of film that i wanna see. You know and right now. The kind of film that i want to see is not a normal narrative fiction piece so i don't know we'll see where that goes and you have a book out which is not your first book in any way. Thank you for bringing the book we can talk about the just want to. I don't think unacceptable dea comes across at all as a fictional narrative. I mean that that's the beauty of the film. Is that it really. I felt immersed into a world that i had been around my whole life but had never felt immersed into an kind of actually radically opened my eyes to what that world is good very much. Thank you beautiful way. Yeah i think. I think it just more inform. You know like the literal like i'm getting into really minimalist repetitive. Kind of work. Cool go there. Yeah i don't know you'll see you. I think you've been an influence on that as well. By virtue of the fact that you stopped making rock music and then we're making sculpture and taking photos and putting out books and now you're making music again. I'm sure it's going to be different in ways. That will be pleased by. I love the books because they fill. It really feels like a piece of art. You know to me. It feels like a complete thought. Even if that thought us tonight quite put my finger on and i like that. It's a tangible object. You know 'cause with music and with lyric writing with voice. And i love my voice. Let's let's not diminish that. But i love my voice and musical voice literally. Don't love my speaking voice overs because clear but But all that stuff is intangible stuff that you can hold her. Put your hand on an eye on a kind of very object based person in a way and so to create a book like the most recent book which a lot of people mistakenly think as named michael stipe. It's not. I just put my name on the spine and there's no title but it's really a series of photographs and images of an attempt at portraiture. In the year of lockdown of the europe twenty twenty started as a very simple partook checkbook and there are there are very simple portraits a nerve people who admire people who for me embody vulnerability within strength and courage and people who are fiercely unafraid. Their life or in their choices whether they're artisan creators. Or if you kiss sports. Figures good made very bold choices as as activists to speak up for their community or just become for something that they feel strongly about. I felt so boyd and encouraged by these people's voices in culture that i wanted to include them in the book and so it became this really weird it. It is actually weird. I mean i thought why as as what always happens when i finished it and handed it over to the publisher to print the so obvious and so clear that i i may be kind of Maybe i'm over explaining what my point was with this book and then a month later i think about a month later after it's been printed. I picked it up and looked at it in an acquaintance moment at home on the table at the table by myself and i went like this incredibly accenture. Nobody is going to be able to figure out what is really about but it does. Have i think a spirit an energy to it. That's nice and it does show on different ways of creating a portrait through someone's name or through their image or in some cases i went back into my archive of photographs of the Gusman sound or the picture of kirsten dunst and explored portraiture that way. It has a narrative to two which is sneaky. But it's there without a doubt. Does it okay good. That's yeah. I mean again like you. Don't look wiseman film and think about having a narrative but it does it it just is incredibly invisible. One that isn't laid out you know And i think that definitely happens with the book without a doubt in my thought pattern as i was going through it. You know definitely and it has a real landing point at the end without a doubt. I think it starts. 'cause i was trying to place it. Also when i was thinking well you know what is where does it fit. And there are really popular photography books that are just all portraits of celebrities for instance. And they're great and there and then you had something like add-ons in the american west of suss which was the opposite of that right. Did i mention it onto last week. That's so crazy. Because that's who i really. When i started the project i been obsessing re obsessing on evidence of in as a portraitist in and using that as a jumping off point the the pictures that did before lockdown started the portraits that i managed to do in my studio here in new york in one case in paris were completely and totally inspired by avenue on by the work that he did and the which on the face of it has this kind of pop. It's often people that are either easy to look at an attractive or people that are very well known republic but underneath it. There's a lot more going on allegra happening. And in the american western. That book that he did was a big part of that. So your book actually kind of smashed the two together in some way plus adds non photography non-photo oriented stuff. But it's as if he took a book starting with photos of whoever you know actors stuff in and ended somehow segue into the american west you know within it somehow but you know made it makes sense it was you know i just. I really like how the how the book kind of itself at the end. As it approaches the end with family pictures kind of taking the focus in a way it really becomes about family. The book the in a way that is. It's funny that some people thought that the book is titled michael type. It's not. I actually kept myself out of the book as much as i could. I put my shadow in there in the final image of portrait of my daughter and her girlfriend. But i definitely wanted to be behind the camera and not be as it turns out. It is really in a way a self portrait. Because it's the it's the people that i find deeply inspiring in a very difficult time. Difficult time being locked down and being the first year of covid and all of us realizing i think that things will never be the way they were ever again and that this is a very potent very important moment that removing through l. but also an incredibly fearful one. So what did i need particularly. I needed to reinforce the idea that these are people who are for me. Fiercely unafraid and fiercely courageous and often that courage and strength is portrayed through their ability to Tap into their own vulnerability and allow that vulnerability to be a superpower. And so i saw myself in them. I guess i. I saw the the better me that i wanted to become through these people. And it's again. It's people like lebron james. Who had you know. I don't know the first thing about sports or calling veronica. But i just so deeply admire the stands at those two gentlemen took and putting their careers under reputation on the line to take those dance or took a knee as it turns out but anyway you know the positions that they imprint themselves in were incredibly vulnerable and beautiful. If people are confused if people are wondering. I think a lot of people probably would look at would take the book was called Tilda swinton because it's just our man just that face on the cover of people are in the bookstore in there. They see but that they think might be called tillerson. That's probably that's probably my book. The book it's not called michael stack. But that's one of the most arresting photos on the front will kinda nearing the end here of our forty five to sixty minutes. can we project just. Maybe we can end with us but we did talk a little bit about the time that we're in and It's been really odd for me. In terms of time connecting with people a irl up sitting down at a table with someone insane. I'm vaccinated vaccinated committed cover masks. Let's up a meal and then realizing this odd feeling of well. I've been on zoom with you. I've been facetime in your. I've been been in contact with you via text for the past year. I've seen you in fact lynn. Let's count of sixteen months and here. We are at the same table and it feels a bit surreal like. Can we talk about that. Because that's where we find ourselves right now and an such a odd thing. I i think a lot of people experiencing this kind of weird. Who are we. And where are we in. what what what. What are we know what has time. What is time. Post cova versus. What was time. I think we all felt like we had a pretty clear. Understanding of what time was beforehand and that that could be something that changed within the limits. The confines of what we think of as time at a time line and the length of our lives or our careers or are usefulness in society. Or what have you and then And then now. It's what has time who are we. What are we for me one answer. That question didn't come out. It's like a really confusing mix of a couple like on one level like this is like saying i don't i'm not i don't have to make a movie right now. Not thinking about that. That was the fact that i was always thinking about. It was always about time. Like i gotta make at least ten movies. By the time. I die. And i've only made five like i got really got to get you know and when the last one came out after ten years of not making one i was like. I'm not gonna wait another ten years. I'm gonna make another move within five years then it's already five years. That was five years ago. Now it feels crazy but it was but yes. I have these dual dual things going like a. I don't really care about time right now because who the fuck knows and be kind of being confused about it because of how it passed in the last year and in odd way for me. It's it's created a much more comfortable spot even though it's confusing because i think there's a giving into it on a certain level and we're still riding rat wave. Were still like and so like being with people. I feel like i clicked right into like you know when you came into the city and and we got together it was just it was definitely like emotional but it was. It also just felt like no just great. Okay good yeah i cried. I remember that. I cried when i saw you. I was going up. I didn't expect. I didn't expect that to happen to me. I was really excited to see you. But i didn't expect it. That would have this flood of emotions at having not senior for over a year in in real life and that was the joint center right. That was the kind of goes to ruling. Great show said the first gallery or the first institution of art that. I had walked into in over a year's time. Yeah i'm happy about that feeling of kind of like some kind of normal. But i also think it's undercurrent that is gonna make us probably appreciate everything on a different level which is certainly good to help so i really do coming back around the book of his image. You see as the word today in the next year's list of names and the idea was to kind of try to allow whoever's looking at the book to just breathe in breathe out and be completely presently. Here's right now and spend a moment with book. Spend ten minutes with this book but be as present as possible. It feels very buddhist in fact for someone who has never studied. But i think my father. My father was actually kind of maybe a secret buddha now the more the more i think about him now that he's gone kind of seems like i had this incredible buddhist mentor in my life.

I can be skeptical of the kids at times and then at the same time i have to realize that i am also when i see a young person stuff that i actually connect with in a big way. I jump in do say.

You guys are both find people that have something that you see that maybe other people don't see and you're like encourage push this person to create to take photographs to develop their interest in film to right and these.

It's really a always never never feels like that to me. It just feels like with us is a relationship in a friendship. And then maybe you give perspective just through your honesty to a situation or you tell someone you know. This is when you need to breathe like. Don't forget to breathe like it's important to breathe mentoring as much as kind of being completely present and acknowledging while we all go through periods where it's good to hear someone else's perspective. The thing that's really shared is the curiosity part. I think as a maker you know that your number one tool that you number one instinct. But i guess for me like my work starts from like a story point you know and it's so my curiosity is always just about watching people. They don't even have to be people.

Put it up on youtube. I guess her your put it up on some kind of channel which is great an. Mtv played a bunch of those they did. I mean we got pretty good distribution through the. I'm also really. I remember mine was about. We're gonna for me. That was pretty pressing too. I mean i find myself now. You know overwhelmed by The organic section at also. I don't shop at whole foods. Actually just sit down. But i walked by it but i stopped at the grocery store because i don't like whole foods but it's kind of great how that whole thing has come full circle. You know there's a lot. More recognition or understanding of the importance of our food is grown that we were on really early. Are we just buttering ourselves up here. Are we making ourselves. Seemed like the coolest guys on well. It's exciting i. It is yes we are. It's exciting to be able to look back in. Be proud of. I think work we played. I just think it was personally. I'm proud of the idea. That was a different model. I'm looking at like american movie to me. Is probably in certain. Ways like shining moment and that came about. Because we met chris smith and sarah price at probably at sundance when chris was there with american job and he told us all about this other film. This was one of the oddest stories but this is totally representative of how we worked that same year. You were there. We were there for other stuff may have been girls to ten year. It was the girls ten. We were there showing girls town premiering girls down and you had been in touch with mtv and they were doing this very odd series of thirty second spots right could be about anything you want it to be about so just describe what sweat. I decided that spot should be called. Orange is the new black. I don't know why i was staying. In a shitty condo with a kind of nineteen seventy s op. Art orange painting behind the couch and inviting people over after After films and and drinking and hanging out on the couch. And i looked up. And i saw the orange. I was like well do that. That's orange is. The new black was my. I wonder if that's available. What if he can find the Yeah i actually have it. Yeah i don't know if it's online isn't jimmy devolved intimidate Grace an integration. It's so fucking funny. Golden so funny and brian. Cates edited it and of course. This was nine hundred ninety five so was about two decades before the tv show called. Orange is the new black and it has nothing to do with women in prison so. Mtv was getting artists to do these things and paying a very large amount of money as if it was a commercial. 'cause it was gershon for mtv so we made this thing in the condo. They're on like probably like a high eight camera and went out to the supermarket and bought a bunch of props for seventy dollars. And then we're able to you know couple months later. Send chris and sarah fifty thousand dollars to continue to shoot american movie. 'cause they weren't finished filming and we're like hey would you sent to us. Looks great sounds. Here's this money and they. You know six nine months later chris gets back to me is like hey guys we have an edit to yeah and then at that point we got further evolved definitely more evolved with watching cuts. We're never like onset or anything but we able at that point to put in another chunk of money and then the film came out. It did really well. We got our money back. That was one of the few projects where we actually got the money back. Did we pay ourselves or this that anything. No we took that money and we were able to put that in two other films which might have been treated or might have been brother to brother or coming up much much later. A film like foreplay by kyle henry. So whole idea was we're not doing this to make money so any money we make ever and as i got further established and i was sort of making stuff that i actually got paid on. We were able to take production company fees from those things from films like everyday people are injured rigas and again. They didn't come to us and go into our pockets. They just allowed us to then give money to filmmakers. It's a really as backwards business model But it's not look what we made yet. We helped make. I mean look what we create it was. It was wonderful. It was super cool. was wonderful. The christmas thing really came full circle from a couple years ago. I got invited to it. Was a documentary starring. Jim carey about the making of men on the moon and how he got really deeply into the character of andy kaufman so i met him on that film because it was the the whole film project was started because of this. The rams man on the moon about andy. Kaufman kind of raised us interest in him. And i went to the opening at moma here in new york and I was i saw spike jonze. I was like oh. Hey spike has on your here. And he's like well. Yeah i i. I am executive producers. I'm like that's awesome. How cool or are you going to stay later. Y'all be here after the film. They were doing a conversation with jim carrey so then the credits roll and it's christmas is director of the thing. I had no idea. I just went up. You know because this is gonna interesting. They're all on stage talking about it after the film and spike references me and pulled me out of the audience and they put another chair up there and i was like wow. This is so cool. Because here's jim carrey who. I met through the film that came from a song. Here's spike jones. Who i worked with with the other phone company that i had at the time for his first feature. And here's chris. Smith who i met through and we worked with him on his first feature and it felt like this kind of beautiful like i felt like graduating class or something of creative people have kind of all come together in this confluence and the documentary was actually quite fleeing good. We financed a crazy. Fuck and movie. memorial day. It was the first thing. Josh fox made that almost no one scene but is kind of amazing and he went on to make land gasoline to and his doing tons of stuff in both political in the film world and then he wound up hanging out together on the campaign trail bernie sanders in two thousand sixteen which was a great way to kind of bring him back into the fold. So yes i think it's definitely something to be proud of. And maybe under our thirty fifth anniversary which is next year is a good lord like to some screenings or something. I would love that between now than that. We really have to get their website up. That would be that'd be. We've got a year excellent. I was trying to figure out a good. I'm i'm sitting here going.

You really have your finger on the pulse. I think of younger artists and youthful younger energy in our and i see you showing that support in many many different ways all the time. And it's something i admire. 'cause i'm i feel like sometimes i feel very curmudgeonly.

"Because that's a whole universe of really talented incredible people. I could also put it up. At michael dot com. Because i now have michael. Stipe dot com which. I'm not terribly active on but there it is an absolutely an active inactive. Is that the term on social media. Because i despise it and that's been a glorious blessing of my life for the past couple of years completely avoiding that particular strata of desperate culture is nice and anxiety and anxiety. God knows we don't need more of that at this point but yes i mean i have to say you sent me this list of all the projects that see hundred worked on. I was flabbergasted. I couldn't believe how much we did in the amount of time that we had starting with an i mean i have to say you know. Have some real favorites here but my really most favorites are your feature films to mckay. I looking at every single one of them and watching you develop grows filmmaker and as a storyteller has been one of the great joys of my adult life and then being able to participate on on whatever produce oil and best friend level has been just incredible. And i'm so proud of. I'm so proud of you. But i'm so proud of lao looking at this list going like holy christ. That's a very impressive list of home projects and and particularly of of your futures so there thanks pal sweep. That's really nice and you know not to do the mutual backscratching to death or anything. But it wouldn't have been possible without you really you know. It all started with a walk around the streets of san francisco in like nineteen eighty six or five or something. When i was talking about maybe going to film school or maybe like just shooting this documentary. I had an idea for which became lighthearted nation. And one of the things i love about. You is that you're not. You're not always the do this person you should do this one. you know. it's definitely like plants. The seeds of you know there's a lot of kind of well. What do you think. Because if this had anyway i ended up not going to film school. Thank god while. I always thought i was so incredibly obvious. So preacher and hectoring in that regard. But that's exactly how i remember was the walk in san francisco and use want to call me. Say fuck film school. Just make a movie. And that's my memory of it. And i think that's actually what you went on to Yes and then you're on tour Couple of years later. After i had spent some time driving around the country in doing this that and i was running out of money for my my travels and use it. Come down athens. There's lots of food service shots. And i was like yes. And that's when so. When i went down since i had already shot the material for lighthearted nation and athens in atlanta. Were where i learned to edit and then we said okay. Let's start you know You were doing a lot of film work through the band. Yoke through rem and in my mind were a filmmaker in your own right as a result of that even though you know some people would label all the projects films but even in the earlier tours you were putting together. The footage that was being screened by the band. You're making the videos. They were not traditional videos. And so i think we both said. Let's just make something official that encompasses our work and you know in what we should do is we should sell videos. We should sell vhs tapes through the mail which was a greg at the time. Yeah actually forward of us. This is pre blockbuster. I mean who remembers that right. I don't think even blockbuster existed at that point. It might be it might be. It was definitely shocked. I think it was pression in terms of what we did become an what kind of non business. We always were like what was that. Oh there was. That magazine called up was the option option option and it was like a music and culture magazine slightly underground and a lot of the stuff that we were interested in was being written about in there and so we were like you know. We can put some vhs tapes and we'll do these great Letter press cardboard covers. It'll be a piece of art in and of itself and we can make them really cheap and then we'll take out an ad. An option magazine at people could send us a check. We could put it in the mail. And that's what we did. We did lighthearted nation and we put out just hold still a compilation of short films by jem cohen. And then we put out figures accomplish in short films by james thurber and we sold them in the mail and kind of did some quote unquote press which was usually met. You know usually meant you did an interview for rem and ended up trying to talk somehow film the deal but it was a little ridiculous and it was also i think centered around the ethos of like the discord type. Ethos and in option yodel. Diy but also i always i mean i i think it was maybe not fully myself but i i had discovered with the first couple of records with rem and with the success that we had a. I'm referring to my former band at that point that if you follow your instinct and art and in creating things if you follow your instinct if you stay true to yourself you put out there. Your audience is gonna find you. You know if because that voices is genuine and authentic and through whatever methods we had at the time remember kids. This was the nineteen eighties. It was pre everything and through whatever distribution because we now know with the advent of digital technology and how that's taking over the world and created its own revolution that distribution is really at the basis of what everything's about yuna truthfully but might eat those guesses up the right word. Was that if you stay true to yourself if you if you have something that's authentic. Your voice is going to be found by the people who need to find it and so our methods were for the time. I mean it was pretty cool what we were doing actually looking back and i think we also had like enough of a circle. It was a small circle. That was his basically this. You know it's like we will hear about stuff you know. We're we're hooked into enough of a network of interesting artists and people were you know someone's gonna say have you seen this person short film or whatever and i mean there's a danger in that because typically that kind of setup can lead to just insiders or just a certain kind of genre or or vibe of work coming out of a certain place but i also think we did a pretty good job at not getting caught in that you know if you look at some of the first some of the early things that we did they were all kind we found you know trichet. The short film on by lisa collins collins. She had already been working on it but we help support the finish of it and sleepytime gal christopher much cowed. We've had we find these people who we we didn't necessarily know firsthand. But i think other people introduced we saw stuff in the press. We stuff film festivals. Whatever and it wasn't this kind of full court press. Let's hire some staff and read the new yorker every week and start optioning interesting articles to make two films. It was more like. Let's just make some shit that we really like. The we would like to see. you know. At least a collins was want. That's one of the actually looking at this list on like this the enduring relationships from the work that we did three hundred in my life. i feel so profoundly. Honored to have her and her completely wacked out like a since ability but as as a friend as someone who you know the the work that she does as a filmmaker is really truly iconoclastic and wild. I mean she's. She is a wild artist. And i love having that kind of that voice in my life and She actually helped me through a lot of lockton. A lot of kovin. She kept in kind of laughing away. Christmas i was texting last week. Talking about what he's doing. He's i think currently in new orleans hanging out with friends and exploring some new ideas for feature films that he's working on jim hummel by the way i think and i became recently obsessed with a were talking about a very early nineteen eighties. Athens band called limbo district but wasn't limbo district part of figures. The jim herbert competition. Am i wrong. Not that i remember. Unless less than they might have done. Their music might have been part of one of the films. But i don't specifically remember that there was a thing that jumped in. I know that he did a thing with linda anyway. That music has come back.
