Thursday night I started my evening by stopping by the Creative Loafing Printhouse for the ATL Short Cuts Film Contest. The object of the film contest was to see who could capture the Atlanta music scene in 5 minutes or less. 10 films were selected (really I’ll say 8, because 2 were actual music videos), and this one won the “Critics Choice” award for the evening. Those in attendance had the opportunity to vote for their favorite film, and today at noon online voting began.
Anyone that knows me, know I always say the ATL indie Hip Hop scene is one the best in the world, and it’s definitely underexposed. The media, record labels, blogs, etc., tend to only show love to major label Hip Hop acts in the city, but there’s a WHOLE another crop of artist who call this city home who have a totally different sound.
Shouts to Will Feagins for putting this joint together. There’s a clip of me from my LP release party performing, but I wasn’t able to make it out to the shoot when it happened, that’s why the kid has no speaking role in here. All good though, the short film is still very FRESH, and I’m proud of it. After you check it out, stop by Creative Loafing to vote for it. If (when) it wins the short film contest, it will be shown at the Atlanta Film Festival later this month.
