Daily Fix: David Watkins, “Grand Traffic”

by | Jan 4, 2010 | COMMUNITY

Shot in glorious hi-8 film (a rarity in this day and age), this is the true definition of independent film. We do not know who shot the film, not do we know who any of the people in it are, but it’s safe to say that a film shot from the side of a freight train had no budget. The film, set to a gorgeous, previously unreleased piano track by Dave Watkins, and was edited by Logan Kornhauser of print shop & design firm Kitchen Table Legs. The colors are rich and saturated, save the parts where the unknown filmmaker’s manifest traveled through snow (some of the prettiest, most engrossing shots of the film).

PREVIOUS DAILY FIX
Unknown Hinson, Venus Bound
Dead Weather, Cut Like A Buffalo
Arcade Fire, Wake Up

Edit: Logan Kornhauser was initially credited with making Tim Barry’s “Thing Of The Past” video. That video was actually produced by Jason Smith at Blackwater Productions. Thanks to Logan himself for pointing out our error!
