The Hot Sprockets, one of the hardest working bands in Ireland, have been tearing up the countries music scene for more than eight years now. This year will see the band take on America and Canada, and we need your help to document this exciting chapter in their journey.
I'm a Dublin based filmmaker, and have taken on the task of documenting the bands progress over the next year. I have worked as a camera man and photographer for over a decade now. My work has taken me all around the world, and my true passion is documenting life as I see it. I began shooting this documentary in January of this year, and plan to continue until December 2014.
Having known the guys in The Hot Sprockets for over ten years, and seeing how far they have come, I decided to embark on my own journey of capturing and documenting the intimate world of the band. From day one they have worked tirelessly to carve their own path through the music industry. Their commitment to what they do is truly inspiring. The music they create is simple, infectious and fueled by passion. The love they have for their friends and family is the formula for creating community, something greatly needed in our world today.
This documentary will capture all of the aspects of what it takes to do what they do. The bands journey to The United States and Canada will open up a new chapter for The Hot Sprockets, not only in the lives of these men, but also for all the people who have followed and supported them throughout the years.
We need your help to make this happen. Your contributions will go towards the travel, accommodation and equipment we need to make the documentary a reality.
With your help and support, we will get these Soul Brothers onto the silver screen.
