A Nottingham-based filmmaker Jeanie Finlay is currently working on a new documentary feature focusing on Sound It Out Records, the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside and is asking for help from music and vinyl lovers everywhere to make the film.
The documentary, also called Sound It Out, will be a distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, obsession and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives. Think of High Fidelity then add a Northern accent. ??
You can help to get this film made through a new way of funding films (crowdsourcing) and via the website IndieGoGo, you can donate anything from the price of a pint to help get the film made. See more at the dedicated Sound It Out page at www.indiegogo.com/sound-it-out. Or you could just help to spread the word by joining the film?s Facebook group www.facebook.com/sounditoutdoc.
The director Jeanie grew up three miles away from the Sound It Out Records shop and it helped to
shape her love of music and started a life-long minor obsession with vinyl. Jeanie wants to make this film because as an independent vinyl record shop, Sound It Out Records is one of a very endangered species; over the last five years over 500 independent record shops have closed and Jeanie and her filmmaking team want to make sure they capture the shop and all that it means to people on film for posterity.
Jeanie and her film team are aiming to complete the film in time for next year?s International Record Store Day.
Thanks for reading and hope you can support this project in any way possible.
