We're a collective of friends living and working in Philadelphia. We create short films with local and touring artists and bands performing in different locations around the city. While we call Philadelphia home, we occasionally make a trip to another city. So lets hang out.

It was a quiet Saturday afternoon when Aaron Maine of Porches stopped by Girard Hall in Philadelphia to play us a few songs. His laid back personality complimented the afternoon well and the songs he played were a perfect fit.
Even though he was playing solo while his bandmate Frank Cosmos watched along, his bold voice and subtle guitar were able to fill the large space quite nicely. Here’s the first of two songs he played Out Of Town Films that afternoon, “Franklin The Flirt”.
Since we were staying in Brooklyn during CMJ, we decided to kill some time at the Hamilton Fish Recreation Center on the Lower Eastside in NYC between our Manhattan shoots one day. There was really no point to take the subway back to Brooklyn for an hour only to have to make a trip back to the city. It was such a nice and quiet place that we invited SWF there to do his shoot.
The center is place for the public to come and play ping pong or play sports away from the hectic city outside. We found the center to be the ideal place for our shoot. Normally SWF plays a more plugged in, electric style but for our shoot he stripped down his song, “Turtle Brain”.
Back in July, we took a little adventure with Kopecky Family Band to their hotel during a storm that washed out the XPoNential Music Festival. We filmed two songs with them that day in the pool room of the hotel.
One of which was the already released, somewhat theatrical “Are You Listening”. Since the band will be in our hometown of Philadelphia this weekend, it seemed appropriate for us to share with y’all the b-side of the session, “Heartbeat”.
When we met up with the Australian songwriter Courtney Barnett during CMJ in NYC, it was her first time in the states. She had been staying in a long and narrow Chinatown studio apartment sublet for a couple of days to play a bunch of shows during the festival. She was loving NYC as any musician coming to the US for the first time would.
It was a Thursday morning when she invited into her temporary home to play us “Avant Gardener”, a song off her debut album, “The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas”. She had literally just woken up after a night playing shows which led to a very pleasant and relaxed version of the song.
