True Untold Tales from Andy Warhol's Factory People....Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground

Lou and the Velvets on the Silver Factory couch.

1960s New York City.....Andy Warhol creates The Silver Factory as a place to make his art, make his movies, make music, and make friends. Many of those friends and assistants are people on the fringe. Gay, lesbian, and transgender acquaintances rub shoulders with the elite of NYC's socially unchallenged avant-garde. There are lots of one- percent types in this group, much to Andy's delight.

A Warhol Factory Party...rubbing shoulders and bumping ellbows.

All are 'Factory People", and their stories define a city, an era, an artist, and the impact that the artist has had, and is having on American and World Culture today.

In 2008 Planet Group Entertainment created the three part television series: 'Andy Warhol's Factory People'. The Series has been broadcast in 35 world territories, and is currently licensed to over 400 colleges and universities world-wide. To create the Series, the producers did over fifty hours of interviews with Andy's close friends, enemies, and other associates that Andy had during the Silver Factory era, from 1964 to 1968.

Recently, the production team created a 450-page Archive Notebook Portfolio related to the interview material. Now, the team is constructing short films that tell many of the true and untold stories from the era. The stories have been untold as their content was not appropriate for world television at the time. The voices in the stories are derrived from the Interview Archive comprising 50 hours of interviews created for the series. Some of the voices are presented as rough-time coded video and some are presented as they actually appeared in the Series.

This particular True Untold Tale explains how Andy met Lou Reed and helped launch his career.Yes, Lou Reed could have no doubt found his way to success without Andy Warhol, but meeting Andy dramatically changed his life. This is the true untold story of how it happened.

Jack Dowd's 27

Jack Dowd is an amazing American artist who has recently completed a series of portraits of music personalities who share the ironic  distinction of having died at the tender young age of 27. Most recently, this being the fate of Grammy winner, Amy Winehouse. To celebrate the work, Dowd recently exhibited the portraits as a collection at the Marie Selby Gallery in Sarasota, Florida. As part of the exhibition, Dowd and his band did a musical evening of songs and rememberings related to his personal feelings about twelve of the personalities he painted. I happened to be in town for the evening and took along my trusty Samsung NV7 and managed to film a couple of their songs related to Al Wilson of Canned Heat, Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain. After I looked at the footage, I thought it would be interesting to create a kind of a "sketch" as to how elements for a finished documentary on the subject could go together. Thanks for the invite Jack, and best wishes for continued success with the exhibition.
