Only 1 Original Grant Hart Drawing Left

We’re down to the last three days of our Kickstarter drive and as of now there’s only one original Grant Hart drawing left, so if you’ve had your eye on it and been putting off taking the plunge, now’s the time to do so. Also still available are some associate and executive producer credits, dinner with Grant and the crew in Minneapolis, and the opportunity to sit in on the editing process or be a production assistant for a day, along with posters, DVDs and stickers. If you haven’t already, check out our Kickstarter page here, and if you’ve already donated, many, many, many thanks!

New “Every Everything” Teaser is up

We’re still putting together screenings for CMO but right now our focus is turned to our new film, “Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times of Grant Hart.” If you haven’t yet, go check out our Kickstarter page. We’re about $8,000 short of our goal right now with 11 days to go in the campaign, so if you’re able to help us we’d very much appreciate it. You can also watch a new teaser for the movie here, using footage that we shot with Grant earlier this month in New Haven.

Spinner names CMO as one of the “best music docs of all time”

That’s right — all time. And they put us in a list that includes the likes of Gimme Shelter, The Last Waltz, The Devil and Daniel Johnston, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, and Dig!. Pretty heady company. Here’s what they said about us:

Making a film about a band while refusing to include any interviews, stock footage, music or images that feature any members of the group might sound like documentary suicide, but for director and Replacements obsessive Gorman Bechard, it was a truly inspired experiment. In choosing to focus on everyone surrounding the Replacements, from fellow musicians and scenesters to critics and fans, and exploring their thoughts and feelings about the band, Bechard hasn’t just made a good film about the rockers, he’s created the ultimate testament to music nerd fandom and just how important the right band can be to the people who love them.
