Hunter&Game offers viewers a glimpse into the emerging world of the New Electronic Brooklyn Underground scene. We follow Hunter&Game and they endeavour to make a name for themselves in the music industry. As well as using actors, director Kevin Alexander asked real bands to contribute to the movie including Ava Luna, Prince Rama, Splash!, Teams, Sleepover & Portable Sunsets.
Described in the directors own words, Hunter&Game is briefly summed up "as Spinal Tap in Bushwick for millennials."
To make the movie Director Kevin Alexander immersed himself into the music scene, we asked him about the comparisons of launching a film and music career: "I think it's easier to start a band and play some shows and a get a little recognition than it is to make a film. Even with a low budget film, it's a much more expensive endeavour. However, I think it's equally difficult in both music and film to break into the industry. There's so much stuff out there and it's easy to get lost in the glut."

We introduce Ava Luna, who have really pulled out all the stops in our video interview.
Sometimes we come across a band so creative, whimsical and innovative that no matter what they do, they'll never fail to entertain us. Our latest video interview is proof of that as we introduce Brooklyn 5-piece Ava Luna.
We are going to be seeing a lot more of this edgy, punk/soul band as they embark on their Europe and UK tour later this month, having only recently come off their US stint alongside Boston trio Krill. They have rather an impressive tour history, having performed alongside Toro y Moi, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Twin Sister and Sharon Van Etten in the past, and it's no wonder following the release of their incredible, highly praised debut album 'Ice Level'. Ava Luna started out as a one-man band, i.e. just frontman Carlos Hernandez, who would write and record songs in his bedroom before he 'met people and they decided to play music with [him]'.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
