"House Music Movie" (working title) is a feature length independent documentary film about house music, dance and global pop culture. DJ's, producers, remixers, dancers and fans discuss their careers and celebrity in this behind-the-scenes look at the house music industry. Along with footage of house music in action, the film also captures candid conversations about house (also called electronic dance music) with authors, artists, club owners and cultural experts.
Visual artist, culture documentarian and independent filmmaker Muema has been working on this documentary about house music for the last four years. The film was shot on location in New York City, Ibiza, London, Germany, Holland, Miami and Los Angeles. To date, Muema has interviewed legendary DJ's such as Tony Humphries, David Morales, Paul Trouble Anderson, Louie Vega and David Harness; legendary singers such as Barbara Tucker and Joi Cardwell; and many more.
Now he is in the post-production stage and he's really excited to bring this dream to fruition. He's not doing it alone. Deeply committed to this project, four members of the team (director, editor, co-producer and music supervisor) have been contributing their time over the last two years to make this film happen. Having already wrapped shooting, he is now at a critical moment in post-production and editing. A fund raising campaign has been launched to enable the team to acquire archival footage in order to finish the film with a target release of late 2012.
To support completion of the movie, please visit the crowdfunding campaign @ RocketHub and donate to the project. An interview with Muema can be found here.
