SOUND MECHANIC

SOUND MECHANIC is a feature length documentary about artist/musician/performer/sound mechanic Neil Feather.

My previous documentary took 19 years to complete. The one before that took 7 years. During the editing of both films, I stressed over how to fit all of the necessary story into the running time of a feature length documentary. For my next documentary, I wanted to do something different. I came up with a list of rules to follow, inspired by Dogma 95:

1). As much as possible, be productive without funding/budget.
2). As much as possible, be productive without additional crew.
3). Do not set out to tell a story unless one unfolds during shooting.
4). No talking head interviews.
5). No archival materials.
6). No more than a 2-year filmmaking process (shoot for the first year; post for the second year).

For SOUND MECHANIC, I want to give the audience a chance to hang out with Neil Feather for an hour and a half; learn some things about him; see what he does; experience his performances. I’m not concerned with telling his story. Instead, I simply want to give a fly-on-the-wall view of Neil’s world, circa now.
