Calling All Studio One Boys

Got a nice email from one of the producers of the upcoming documentary about Studio One, who wants to make sure they are telling the full story about the famed Los Angeles disco.

He writes:
Did you attend Studio One and/or The Backlot between 1974-1993? We need your stories for a new feature documentary in production called STUDIO ONE FOREVER. We are looking for self-tape testimonials to be considered for inclusion in the closing credits sequence. Several submissions may be invited to film an interview in Los Angeles to tell your story for the film.

Here's how to submit: Make a brief 1-3 minute video telling your story. It can include virtually any anecdote (funny or serious) that makes your Studio One/Backlot experience forever etched in your memory. If you attended during the 80's/90's and have someone who passed from AIDS that you would like to memorialize, please feel free to include them in your video. Also, if Covid-19 has brought back any memories from that era, please comment.

When you shoot your video, please shoot horizontally (side to side) not vertical. You can upload your video preferably via WeTransfer to: The deadline for submissions is August 25, 2020.

We are about to begin the last phase of production this month with limited funds available, so if you are able to support the completion of the film with a tax-deductible donation, please visit our fiscal sponsor HERE.  
Thank you for your support! The Covid-19 crisis caused some delays, but we are cautiously beginning to plan our final phase of production. Currently we have an 80-minute rough cut. We just need your story to make it complete. Stay safe!
I have so many fond memories of the iconic club and cannot wait for this to come out ... maybe I need to track down my old WeHo friends and start talking!
