Record Safari, a feature length documentary “exploring the restored love, appreciation and consumer demand for vinyl records in the age of the digital revolution”. Following Alex Rodriguez road tripping across the States, the film chronicles Alex as he curates vinyl discoveries and finds for the Coachella Festival on-site record store. Throughout the journey, he will stop in different cities across America to meet his fellow collectors and vinyl junkies that include record store owners, and producers to share their passion for the black crack, its warm, analog sound, and that favorite sound of the needle to the groove.
This morning, director Vincent Vittorio, host Alex Rodriguez and crew showed up at The Greenville Studios and did and interview with me for the film. Vittorio has directed documentaries such as Nerd Prom, After Spring, One Day In April, After The End, Warehoused, and more. Rodriguez has been dealing vinyl for quite sometime, owns Glass House Records, and has curated record stores for Coachella and FYF among others. Serious record dude and director. We spoke on vinyl records, Flea Market Funk, and vinyl record culture among many other things. The project, based out of Los Angeles has been traveling across America, hitting cities large and small, and will finish up at The Austin, TX Record Show. The documentary will feature some interesting people, so we are definitely looking forward to seeing the final product. It will be released early 2018. Here are a few snap shots of the session.
