I funded this project because record stores are great and bring back many memories. I have too many records, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! The physical media, packaging, and all that brings so much more into the music listening experience than just clinking on an MP3 link (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m hoping this movie can get the funding raised as the premise and location seem ideal! Here in Boise we have a great local record store that finds new and innovative ways to stay in the game, and I’m hopeful ‘Sound it Out’ can help all record stores worldwide! Having a chance to fund this movie, and see my names in the credits, is exciting. What a great idea and I wish you all the best.

First and last record I bought
First: Can’t really remember, but it may have been Get The Knack by The Knack
Last: Josh Ritter – So Runs The World Away
All Time Favorite record: Vapors – Magnets (arguably the best cover art ever!)
and a couple thousand in between!

Glimmer Films in association with Sideshow present a film by Jeanie Finlay; SOUND IT OUT.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

High Fidelity with a Northern Accent.
