Fayetteville expat/director Mike Anderson aims to direct a short film for Javelin



Mike Anderson, a Fayetteville director who relocated to Brooklyn last year, has started a Kickstarter campaign with Javelin to raise money for a Western-themed companion short film to the band's new 10-inch, Canyon Candy, out on Luaka Bop. From the looks of the promo (which starts at 1:40), we can expect more of Mike's trademark colorful greenscreen antics, only this time in fully fleshed-out short film form. This is exciting because Mike only has super short promo bits available for viewing over on his Vimeo page, so it will be nice to see something lengthier.

Javelin has $7,456 in pledges out of their goal of $9,500. And with 24 days left, it looks like they'll make it. Pledge here, and read more over at Altered Zones.

Fayetteville expat directs Javelin video flyer

Director Mike Anderson relocated to Brooklyn from Fayetteville a short while ago. Not sure if this an official music video and/or video flyer (i.e., formally endorsed by Javelin), but either way it's very pretty to look at. It's promoting a release party for No Más, Javelin's latest album. The party will take place on April 22 at Santos Party House in Manhattan. RSVP here.

UPDATE: Mike has confirmed that the project was indeed endorsed by Javelin and that he'll be directing the full music video as well. He tells me it'll be finished before summer.



Speaking of Javelin, I've been positively gushing over this duo since their remix of The Very Best's "Julia" landed late last year, and No Más is shaping up to be album of the summer. Here's one of my favorites off it (but they're all tight-to-death):

Javelin - "On It On It"

And here's that "Julia" remix because it's a little too good to pass up:
