Artist Spotlight: THE INTERNET

5b532e5fd95cb6cdd99b8bf7e55c8adb-810x529x1

THE INTERNET began as two people – Syd and Matt. Syd taught herself how to record, engineer, and produce at age 15. She also sings, imbuing every song with a sultry, mellifluous, quiet power. Matt produces and plays synths. She’s now 23; he’s now 26. Like all post-modern relationships, the duo initially met on Myspace in 2008, only to meet in-person three years later.

THE INTERNET have released two albums previously – 2011’s Purple Naked Ladies, and 2012’s Feel
Good. THE INTERNET branched off from the Odd Future collective and started their own band in 2011. Syd had been writing music since she was small; she put this on hold to become OF’s DJ and producer, and picked her songs back up in 2011 to make her first full-length album with Matt.

FINDING AUMONT WHITAKER
A short documentary film by Leslie Cunningham

At age 22, Dina learned her real father was a postman from Compton, California. Her mother told her he was married and she shouldn’t interfere. Dina didn’t. Left with three assumptions- he either didn’t know about her, he didn’t want her or he didn’t love her, Dina convinced herself she was her father’s unknown child.  More than two decades later, when Dina finds her siblings on Facebook, she sets out on a trip across the country to surprise them. An emotional journey filled with sorrow, love and laughter, Finding Aumont Whitaker will uplift hearts and bring families closer together.  Run-time 11:41 minutes. A TRIBES Entertainment Film.
