CALLING ALL ARTISTS: COME MAKE ART w/ US RE: "MY FAVORITE THINGS!"
You may have heard that I wrote and directed the upcoming movie "DON JON." It's a comedy about this guy named Jon who is very into his things - his car, apartment, body, and the women in his life that he treats like objects on a shelf. I want us all to make art regarding the theme "MY FAVORITE THINGS."
For instance, ask yourself: What are your favorite things? Can you truly love a thing? Can people be considered 'things?' Do our favorite things define us?
I've had this movie in my head for so long now, I'm really curious to see what kind of stuff it inspires us to make together.

Jared's favorite thing is an Eames Rocker, so we made a short film about it for the 'Don Jon' collab "RE: My Favorite Things."

(dry track is in results)
I have been playing violin for most of my life, and I recently fell in love with watercolor paint. Can you actually fall in love with an art material? Well, it happened. Anyway, random ideas tend to invade my brain, and this was one of them. It was too big for my scanner though, so sorry that the photo quality kind of sucks.
Sloane Avery is looking for melancholic music, with violins. This is a song I wrote in 2004, and I was in a band back then. We used to play little coffee shop gigs and though I was always really shy about this one, everyone always requested it.
This was recorded on an 8 track. It's out of tune, insanely reverby. It's not perfect. But it's a sad song, to me anyway. I'm just throwing this up as a reference. I have no stems, so this is as good as it's going to get.
Perhaps I'll try re-recording my violin parts and see if any guitar players and breathy vocalists want to play along to make a new mix with modern technology.
eep! Sharing certain things makes me so nervous sometimes! <3
Glow sticks and flashlights
Open mics and dirt bikes
Bus stops vandalized and cris-crossed
A boombox mixed with Pop Rocks
They used to watch us dance
We would drift among the throng
Too young to know romance
my bumper making streak continues...
