AN ISLAND - 3rd TEASER - Vincent Moon & Efterklang from Rumraket on Vimeo.
Vincent Moon is a French filmmaker responsible for the best live music blog on the planet, Le Blogotheque, and their very well-conceived "Take Away Shows" programs. Now Vincent Moon is behind a conceptual film, "An Island," based on Efterklang’s 8 piece-live band going to a small island village in Denmark to shoot a film the same length as their album, Magic Chairs. We want to see this film, which is set to premiere in February 2011.
Booooooom writes: "August 2010, French filmmaker Vincent Moon and Efterklang’s 8 piece-live band met up on an island in the Danish country side. The objective was to shoot a film. A film with the same length as an album, and a film full of performances, experiments and collaborations.
Over an intense period of 4 days Efterklang collaborated with more than 200 local musicians, kids and parents, creating new performances and interpretations of songs from their Magic Chairs album. It was all filmed by Vincent Moon who same time conducted several filmic and musical experiments with Efterklang as his dedicated play mates.”
