Habits and mindsets, Punk Rock Documentary Update, Nov 2017 by Chris Chucas

It’s been several months since I’ve done a previous blog post and a lot has changed since then. I’ve got married and still living in a building site of our first house, and more importantly I’m halfway through my MA and am pretty pleased with the feedback from my peers and tutors on the previous modules.

A day later.... Le Pub Newport with the Barnett Brothers by Chris Chucas

I didn't even get through the Petrol Girls show images and video but the 19th ofJanuary rolled in as my red eyes are fighting to work against a lightroom screen with hundreds of images to sift through. Nevertheless today (yesterday? the 19th Jan, Sam Dabb of Le Pub Newport put on the Barnett Brothers consisting of Menzingers Greg Barnett and Bobby Barnett (Captain we're sinking) both performing acoustic sets. unfortunately I was working solidly all day and I only just made it in time for Greg who was on last. I recorded some video and briefly talked about the documentary film which is materialising and how I need both UK and US bands to get involved. 

It was a special set for me to watch as I've been a Menzingers fan for years and I've lived through their records, when I say that I mean when you listen to a band a lot and for a long time you have life events and parts of you that you can reflect back on with the record that you were listening to at the time. Being in a few bands myself I always have a handful of menzingers songs in the covers list, I'm soo glad I didn't miss this. If you're new to Menzingers or Captain we're sinking I suggest you get on it I might make a spotify playlist for those of you unfamiliar. Obviously buy songs directly from them as it supports the scene and helps them do what they do best when you can . 

They still have a few dates left on this UK tour so make sure you get out to it if you can.

Bicycle Thieves (Cardiff) @Le Pub, Newport 24th Nov by Chris Chucas

Bicycle Thieves of Cardiff @ Le Pub, Newport

I know I hardly ever update my blog but thats because im super busy. Nevertheless I have been thinking and I need to post more about what I've been doing online and a blog is the perfect way to do it i'm just a scatter brain with all the work on. So watch this space as I am going to share a bit more of the 'Punk Rock Documentary; that is still yet to be named properly. Lot's of exciting bands coming on board, as soon as i sort out the back log of projects over the next month I'm going get out some older edits and stills that have not been published yet in the run up to the kickstarter campaign. Video below, enjoy. 

By the way, it was only meant to be cut away footage but the boys from Bicycle Thieves really wanted to have a look so I slapped it together. If there are any other film makers and or camera ops that want to get involved with some of the projects you see me working on I can always use another pair of hands as I mostly work alone and a second camera op is amazing to have ;).

I've actually yet to post the Apologies images yet but Bicycle Thieves kinda wanted something to share along with some exciting news they've had which you can read about later. Worth looking out for them.
