Filed Under Film (Full Movie)

Filed Under Film is a mixtape of music videos, vignettes, and interviews both lo-fi and hi res intentionally sequenced into a mosaic of inspiration. Throughout the film, these bits and pieces explore the process of creativity, challenging the notion of art and ideas that have inspired my outlook, approach, and practice. When we first screened the film at Shopify's headquarters back in August, it ran just under an hour, not including the silent pre-screening that loops before the film actually starts.

Afterward, I felt a little more ambitious about how to contextualize the film. I chose a vintage theatre to screen it the second time around, extended it, and added previews to make it really cinematic. I considered uploading the original version earlier, but my worry was that the message would be compromised. In a theatre its just different; you cant't fast forward, rewind or download. You have surround sound, cinematic dimmed lighting, and this particular theatre—floor covered in tacky 80s carpet—bleeds nostalgia. It wasn't easy getting people to the movies to watch a film that I still have a tough time describing, let alone a screening at midnight, so I'm thankful to everyone that came out.

So here it is, the full extended version of the movie mixtape. Please please please don't skip through it. I know this is the internet, but please take the time to just watch it in full. The transitions and tone throughout is intended to be viewed in one piece. I'm almost finished part two, and still thinking about a clever way to share it once I'm done. I think because I'm working on the new one, I've become less attached to the first. And look, you may not feel anything after watching this, you may have opposing views on whats being said, or you just might like it, but I hope within the hour something inspires you how it has and continues to inspire me. Enjoy.
