Hollywood On The Mississippi River

Music Video *

This project erupted from a can of free film. With respect for my hometown, and a limited amount of raw stock, I chose each shot deliberately. However, unfortunately and unforeseen, the opening shot caused my associate and attorney, Richard, along with myself, to be added to a Homeland Security watch list. Scolding us for taking photos near a bridge, the Arkansas police sergeant then took our pictures for the FBI.

* Since the length and edits were dictated by a single musical piece, I’ve classified this as a music video, though it’s more of an experimental documentary.

The title was taken from a promotional tote bag given to me by the Memphis & Shelby County Film Commission.

Running time: 3:00
Format: 16mm
