‘How to Make a Paramount Record’ by Kelli Anderson and Daniel Dunnam
A handmade video that recreates the inner workings of the defunct Paramount Records factory (where records by artists like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Louis Armstrong and Charley Patton were pressed in the 1920s and ’30s). The video is made entirely from paper atop a plywood set.
Made by Kelli Anderson and Daniel Dunnam in collaboration with Third Man Records and Revenant Records for the LP release The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records, Volume Two. Music: Charley Patton, “High Water Everywhere, Part 1,” 1930. Read more about the making of the film.
