Atlanta artist, Father, took to Twitter yesterday (on Father’s Day) to release the visual for his infectiously buzzing new track “Hands.” Produced by MeltyCanon, the record feels jubilant and grimy at the same time. A variety of xylophone and bell tones are sprinkled over a hard, rumbling bass line, Father does what he does best injecting his quirky, off-canter style. The visual is equally stimulating as it follows a group of kids leaving havoc in their wake, you probably wont take away anything truly profound, but the video definitely displays an air of cool. Check out the video for yourself above and keep an eye out for more from Father.
August 15th is a very significant date in the history of film…for two reasons. We’ll cover them here in order by date, but both are, no doubt, some of the most memorable advances in movies and storytelling.
On August 15, 1934, director Christy Cabanne (The Mummy’s Hand, Scared to Death) released the first audio-visual film adaptation of Charlotte Bronte‘s famous novel Jane Eyre.

For the movie, which only runs a total of 62 minutes, the studio recruited actors Colin Clive, best known for the role of Dr. Frankenstein in the original 1931 James Whales’ classic, and newcomer Virginia Bruce (Born to Dance, The Invisible Woman) to star as Jane Eyre. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Adele Comandini (Beyond Tomorrow, Three Smart Girls) to adapt Bronte’s novel for the film (which admittedly must have been a challenge considering Jane Eyre runs for a total of 38 chapters with 400+ pages in most publications).
Also on August 15th, but in 1979, Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather, The Conversation) released his world-renowned masterpiece, Apocalypse Now. The film is famous not only for its cinematic brilliance, but also for its whirlwind of a production Continue reading
