The filming would take place soon over the course of a few weekends, in and around Torbay and Totnes.
The RedMunkey told D+CFilm: “Due to the independence of the project, we would be unable to pay but would provide food and expenses, as well as a high-quality DVD of the video itself for show reels and portfolios.”
The concept of the video is a bizarre, darkly funny and subversively fictionalised retelling of Lana Clarkson’s last night with crazed record producer Phil Spector (here renamed Spektor). The setting would be transposed from the glamour of LA to the mean streets of Paignton, and the success of the piece would completely depend upon two game, talented individuals to fill out the two main roles:
Spektor: ideally someone who is able to subtly convey a sense of being deeply unhinged. Someone who is open-minded, who would be willing to wear a collection of incredibly odd wigs and is able to perform an energetic dance routine.
B-Movie Actress: An ideally blonde woman who would have to spend a considerable amount of time conveying curiosity, worry and ultimately terror. There may be a lot of running around looking scared involved. A lady with a deep sense of humour and a willingness to wear layers of thick make-up would be ideal.
Red Munkey have worked with many of the South West’s musical community and have made videos for Hey Molly, Bert Miller and the Animal Folk, The Weaver Twins, The Quails, Obedient Bone and Nicky Swann. They are putting the finishing touches to a feature-length documentary called John Tomkins: A Creative Journey, which is to be shown at festivals later this summer.
