powerHouse Books – the musical

Written & Directed by Hillman Curtis, Edited by Kristin Bye, Shot by Ben Wolf, Produced by Gabriel de Urioste, with songs by Don Piper

I was looking for something different to film after “Bridge”. Having just finished our feature film, David Byrne’s “Ride, Rise, Roar” I was used to editing music. So I thought why not film a musical? We rented powerHouse books in Dumbo for a couple of late nighters, enlisted songsmith Don Piper to write three songs, called in the troops, kept the story line simple and had a blast filming.
