Culture on the Cheap
TOMORROW: The Don Project
This item comes from a chap named Vandal. He writes:
I’m a friend of Jay Lombard and Rob Maher of Unleash/ Dog Habitat. They suggested to get in touch with you to possibly spread the word on our upcoming benefit concert for the film, “The Don Project”.
What is The Don Project, you ask? Well, you can follow their web site— or read their press release!
Emerging filmmakers Matthew Maguire, Dan Bowhers, and Vandal Truong team up for this powerful, intimate piece of cinema. the result is the short film, The Don Project- a little bit punk rock, and a little bit neo-realist. It is a “day in the life”, character study of Don, a dog walker and lingering skate punk scene-ster living in the current day of Brooklyn, New York.
The benefit fundraiser for the film is Saturday, July 17th at Coco 66 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The cover is a mere five dollars. The bands lending their support are Invisible Lines, The Amboys, Black Water, and Cecilia Celeste. Partnering with the non profit group Dog Habitat, all the film’s profits will be donated to help fund dog rescues and adoptions.
Recently wrapped principle photography, the film is now in post production and gearing up for film festivals throughout the country. The Don Project was shot in numerous Brooklyn neighborhoods including Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Bushwick and Bay Ridge.
So there have you. Check it out!
