I recently came across a video on Vimeo that blew me away. It’s called Blood On My Name and was made by Whitestone Motion Pictures. On the Vimeo page for the video it’s described as a “short film musical narrative in the style of americana southern gothic folklore.” I don’t normally care for musicals (it normally feels so weirdly out of place and the music is rarely my taste) but this reminded me more of O Brother Where Art Thou?, both in terms of music and presentation as well as time frame of the film (and I love O Brother Where Art Thou? so that helps).
I think the cinematography of Blood On My Name is fantastic and the concept is fascinating for a short film. Not only that but the main song used in it is great and was immediately added to my music library after watching the film (you can download the full soundtrack here). Check the video out below.
