I somehow missed this despite being Hypnotic Brass Ensemble's biggest fan. No really, I am. Apparently the film maker, Reuben Atlas, hopes to have it completed this summer!
I began filming in the fall of 2006, during my last year of law school. (I snuck in shoots between classes and visits to the library.) Hypnotic's music is what sparked my initial interest—it also helped me pass the bar exam—but it was their nomadic, Utopian existence and deep commitment to uphold their family's values that inspired the documentary. About six months into filming, the band's career started to take off and I was fortunate enough to capture their evolution. The feature-length documentary is scheduled for completion by the summer of 2010.Via The New Yorker
