Since filmmaking became digital, some of the greatest filmmakers from David Lynch to Chan-wook Park (Paranmanjang is entirely filmed with an iPhone) have shown, it’s not the end of filmmaking, but the end of an era. Many things have changed. Just like the concepts of music industry with it’s affordable bedroom studios and net-labels, making films has now become way easier, too. One result of this development is, that there are many bad YouTube videos. But the other side of the coin shows, there are pearls to be found like the documentary VINYL: Tales from the Vienna Underground. As the title suggests this film gives a wide introduction to the different upper class and underground music scenes in Vienna. British filmmaker Andrew Standen-Raz not only features underground kings like Rokko Anal & the Coathangers alongside artists from a growing experimental scene like Fru Fru, he also talks to some of the local heroes such as Kruder & Dorfmeister and Patrick Pulsinger.
