PLAY THIS AT MY FUNERAL —Writer/Director
Music holds a special place in our lives. We consume it nonstop. We encounter it incidentally in the world. We use it to cut ourselves off from the world. It colors almost all of our experiences. Soundtrack to our lives and all that.
With Play This At My Funeral we created stories that spoke to this connection with music. The autobiographical link we make to songs. Where our own meaning replaces those of the author. The music becomes “ours.” Something that speaks to who we are, lives we’ve lived.
PTAMF is a mixtape. The analog age’s way to show off taste, to pour out emotion, to tell the story of you. Upon watching the series, my hope is that the viewer begins to dig into their own history and find the unexpected songs that trigger emotion for them. The songs that have become, your songs.
