Laurent Garnier Documentary Launches with Kickstarter Campaign
The documentary is directed by Gavin Rivoire.
There’s a Laurent Garnier documentary on the way, aiming to “tell the story of the last great musical revolution of the 20th century through the eyes of one of its pioneers.”
“Off The Record” focuses on Garnier’s 2018-2019 world tour and includes interviews with figures such as Seth Troxler, Jeff Mills, Derrick May, and Carl Cox. It’s produced by Julien Loeffler and directed by Gavin Rivoire, who was given “complete and never-before-seen personal and professional access” to Garnier for a period of three years.
“I have always been very touched by [Rivoire’s] sense of rhythm, narration and staging,” Garnier says . “I love the intimacy and the poetry that emerges from each of his films, and I am always amazed and moved by the way he uses—and visualises—the music.”
The documentary is part-funded by a Kickstarter campaign with a symbolic funding goal of $1, meaning it will be fully-funded regardless of fan contributions. The aim is to gather a community around the project, and those who do contribute can gain access to private shows and participate in the selection of scenes chosen for the final cut.
At the time of writing, £76,782 has already been pledged.
