I heard about this film "The 78 Project" and saw the poster with an old record player so I just HAD to see it!
Drove up from Nashville to Memphis to catch it at The Memphis Indie Film Fest and met up with the creators after.
I felt this film's subtle message was "don't get in the way of yourself."
In other words, a good song and performance should work under any circumstance.
You don't need a $3,000 guitar and $10,000 worth of studio gear. In fact, it's the limitations that make for great art.

Scot Sax knows his way around a solid pop song. The Philadelphia musician has been writing them for years, whether it was with his own bands Wanderlust and Feel, or as a purveyor of hits for singers like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. It was Sax, in fact, who co-wrote the country duo’s Grammy-winning smash “Like We Never Loved At All.” His catchy “I Am the Summertime,” penned while with the band Bachelor Number One, was featured in the blockbuster “American Pie.” And he’s netted countless TV credits, with song placements in shows like “Ghost Whisperer,” “NCIS,” “CSI: NY” and “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” He toured as a guitarist with Sharon Little throughout North America supporting Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' Raising Sand. His filmmaking debut, the documentary "Platinum Rush," is currently being entered into film festivals worldwide and will premiere in 2015. Sax lives in Nashville with his family.
