    My favorite thing about this job is the opportunity it affords me to get to know some of our city’s most promising up-and-coming filmmakers. There is a beauty in our local film scene; sure, Mad Max and Jurassic World are excellent, but so are many of the low-budget efforts of indie filmmakers, and bubbling somewhat under the radar of our prolific local arts scene is the filmmaking community, exploring its own visions and committing them to the screen. Tonight, Wednesday June 17, three such filmmakers will be showcasing two movies in “a night of black-and-white film along with multi-colored music” in the “lavish depths” of the cellar of Decca.

    First is noted., a film by Tyler McDaniel about the complicated nature of simple tasks. A young woman runs out of room in her notebook and sets out to find a fresh sheet of paper. This seemingly innocuous quest becomes chaotic as such an item is not so easily obtained.

    Following McDaniel’s film is Keep it Clean, the most recent film by Matthew Rivera and Evan Sennett. Shot on 16 mm film, Keep it Clean is about a germophobe who is visited by a disgusting vacuum cleaner salesman. His life becomes even more complicated when the salesman requests the use of his restroom – where he promptly dies.

    The films will be followed by music from Frederick the Younger and Yellow Cuss. It all starts at 8 p.m. in the cellar of Decca, located at 812 E. Market Street. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged (and much appreciated). Complete details can be found at the Facebook event page.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
