Trailer for Being A Musician in Today’s World


Being A Musician In Today’s World

Set against the backdrop of the band’s Disneyland Paris Concert, this one hour documentary special features the music of Michael Costantini and Organic Funk. During the band’s first European, their Paris concert was filmed in anticipation of producing a documentary feature that would recap the band’s years of development and to what lengths a Canadian musical group must go to make it in the Twenty-first Century. The documentary was filmed at the Legendary Phase One Recording Studios in Toronto and includes performances from their Paris concert, along with some in-studio recording as the band recounts the European Tour experience. Music fans get an inside look at why the band plays what they play and writes what they write.

The special Documentary Feature is hosted by Holger Peterson, the host of CBC’s “Saturday Night Blues”. Holger guides the audience through the bands journey thus far and the band shares some of their trade secrets when it comes to song writing, song selection and the pitfalls of staging not only an international tour but surviving in a business that is somewhat saturated with talent… that tends to blur the lines between the serious and novel, overlooking the minstrels of our time and the societal condition.

The documentary was Produced and Directed by Steve Thomson who among his other credits also produced and directed the award winning documentary “Let It Rock at The Crossroads of Rock’N’Roll”.
