Making this movie about a grown up Boy Band well past their prime (and please pop on over to the kickstarter to give if you haven’t! Even at the $1 level it helps a ton!) has got me thinking a LOT over the year about all things boy band. And growing up in the 80’s as I did, what it really made me want to do was Voltron an ultimate boy band member.

That meant picking hair, face, arms, legs and feet to smash together into the ultimate “musician” capable of fighting an alien. And though I was able to do it as an intellectual exercise, it felt… incomplete. Because I needed to see that Boy Bander in action to know what he would look like, and if he would be capable of defending our species. Enter Pierre Nagley – brilliant local artist here in Yellow Springs capable of transforming my concept into actual art – complete with trident.
