Sunset Junction: A Personal Musical "is a story of guitars, dance shoes, laptops, lattes and the people in between" (Is this your Silver Lake?). The low budget feature film, touted as an indie-musical, from the locally based director Jesus M. Rodriguez uses music from a few local bands, such as Maleco Collective and Jail Weddings, and was shot on a Canon 7D, which is originally intended for still pictures. Interesting concepts all around, so we're curious how this movie will turn out. A preview can be seen below.
