VRT Interview with Filmmaker Jeanie Finlay Now Available In Radio Dentata's Archives

Jeanie Finlay's films are like reality television on Quaaludes. She could make a film about somebody else's outdoor shed and it would be entertaining, endearing and naturally odd. Her new film, about the last record store in her hometown in northeast England, "Sound It Out", premieres at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas starting March 11th.

Last year, Jeanie Finlay came on VRT to talk about making "Sound It Out", and the planning for her project currently in production, "Orion". "Orion" will be a documentary about the larger than life (and death) performer of the same name. Our interview with Jeanie is now up in the Radio Dentata archives: here

"Sound It Out" was completely financed through fans and supporters, using the funding platform IndiGogo. Amazingly, this micro-budget film has made it not only to SXSW, but to be named the official film of Record Store Day. Help get Jeanie, her crew, and Tom the owner of Sound It Out Records, from the UK to Austin to celebrate and promote this achievement in truly independent filmmaking. Offer your support here.
