A cooking show from a different kitchen. "I pushes the hippo through the mineshaft" Director Jeffrey Planskers lifelong passion for music has inspired a series of short films created to promote his online music station: PocketRadio.org. Plansker teamed with likeminded friends from the commercial world including Cinelicious Colorist Steve Rodriguez and General Editorials Noah Herzog on the whimsical and lyrical vignettes, the latest of which launches today. Produced in collaboration between Supply & Demand and PocketStudio, the films are a blend of homage and surrealism, a wink and a nod to the power and pleasure of music. Actor Frank Schneider embodies a series of characters in each, providing an absurdist through line for the series. Music, naturally, also plays a starring role. Plansker turned to creative collaborators in the advertising realm to bring commercial level production to the series, which was shot on 35mm. Having worked with each of the team members on numerous projects, he knew they shared his interest in music and would bring equal parts talent and fun to the process.
