SUB LEVEL “The Road To Budafest”
This is a short film I directed about the Minneapolis metal band SUB LEVEL. The film follows the bands three performances; 7th Street Entry and First Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the former Ryan's in Saint Paul, Minnesota; before heading to De Moines, Iowa for Budafest. The event was in all fairness a disaster. Not enough marketing, lack of planning, and the police played important roles for failure. But the music proved to encapsulate the energy and integrity of Minnesota's metal scene.
