Excursions from the Global Underground
Local producer enlists more than 20 filmmakers worldwide
One Spark entry #432, “In Search of Sound: Excursions from the Global Underground,” is touted as the first feature-length film about the post-millennial music underground. Produced by the brother and sister team of Brian Parsons and Amber Halford, “In Search of Sound” (ISOS) features contributions from more than 20 filmmakers who filmed over 50 artists and labels worldwide. “There was no single camera crew traveling the world and filming – that would have cost a million dollars,” Parsons explains from the MOCA lobby. “Having people film themselves created a more natural, more emotive response.” The film was winner of the London Underground Film Festival, official selection at the Frame Out Film Festival and official selection at the DORF Festival.
