LA and Nashville: Here we come

LA

Schedule purgatory doomed the mind over the last summer months. Pulling teeth and wrangling at the zoo can feel like an understatement, but as the pieces fit we are locked and loaded to film with The Palms, Dee and Suzette Snider, Blue Dixon, Escondido, Michael and Pamela Des Barres to name a few. Stay tuned as we journal the journey and continue to bring you behind the scenes, in the making of: ‘Love Yourself More.’

An uplifting film about women, love & music in a refreshing way that has not been done before. We are not looking for dirt or ‘dialogue that sells’ but instead passionately pursuing the essence of real love, that sometimes elusive bond that we all search for. Discovering the substance of these women and all that they bring to the lives of their partners and ultimately seeking to answer the question ‘does’ or ‘can’ real love exist in this industry.

Documentary Production: Behind The Scenes

Behind The Scenes with Mama Kin, John Butler Trio, & Shakey Graves

In a sense this folk festival ambiance was our first ‘round at the rodeo as we pulled into Calgary. Excitement, inspiration, and lack of sleep was on our side from the one hour nap due to rocking out at Shakey Graves the night previous.

Day two was one for the books and it started with the breakfast of champions under a golden arch. Crew for the Day was highly recommended Cinematographer and Sound Technican [Life Capture’s] Adam Peariso and product of a desperate google search which ultimately was meant to be brought us Photographer Allison Seto.

The itinerary was to film an interview with John Butler of The John Butler Trio, partner to our muse Mama Kin followed by the band’s headline performance at The Calgary Folk Festival.

1. Home is where your story begins, can you tell us a bit about yours?

I grew up in the most beautiful city in the world, Sydney, Australia, with the greatest family ever. 

2. How did Music find you?

My sister is 9 years older than me. She played piano as a kid. She would sit for what I remember to be hours, playing Billy Joel songs on the piano and sing along. I’d hide behind her and watch her practice and was completely mesmerised. Once she walked away, I’d sit on the piano stool and pretend to be as good as her. By the time I was 4 or 5, I begged my parents to get me a piano teacher. That’s where it started…
