MTV $5 Cover: Seattle Cast & Crew Bash

by on Mar.02, 2010, under Projects

Last night MTV threw a little bash in Seattle for the cast and crew of its upcoming series $5 Cover: Seattle.  I was a pretty tangential part of the project–I made two short docs about the Seattle arts & music scene that will be a very small part of the series.  Congrats to Lynn Shelton and the whole team.  I was impressed with the show and especially the music involved.  The after-party had some fun performances by Seattle breaking bands like Thee Satisfaction and Champagne Champagne.

For me, the find of the night was Thee Emergency front-woman and new actress Zana Geddes.  She has a star quality that leaps off the screen.  The series drops in June, you’ll have to wait till then to see what I’m talking about.  Meanwhile, I wish I could get her into a film role while she’s still undiscovered.

Now can someone explain the Seattle band “Thee” thing?  I’ve been pretending to get it but really.  What’s the deal?

Zana Geddes of Thee Emergency star-in-the-making.

Dave Knudsen from Minus the Bear jams on a Verellen custom tube amp in my video "Tube Addiction".

A few months ago I made a couple of cool little videos for a as part of their upcoming series, $5 Cover: Seattle, directed by Lynn Shelton.  They were looking for filmmakers to do some fun, documentary-style videos on some topic around the Seattle music scene.

My videos were about Verellen Amps – a shop in Seattle that builds custom tube amplifier that’s run by and for musicians.  It has a sweet guitar performance by Dave Knudsen of Minus the Bear.  That one’s called “Tube Addiction.”  The other one is “Seattle’s Vortex,” about a rehearsal space crammed into an industrial park in Seattle’s North End that serves as an practice space/second home/band incubator for a lot of talented emerging bands like Three Chord Killer, Underdose, The Mercury Rising, and Achilles Fall.
