The short film/music video Bullet Train is an official selection of the Indie Gathering International Film Festival and winner of Best Rock Video 2012. Directed by Akron-based filmmaker Miriam Bennett, produced by Moving Studio and Red Valise, Bullet Train features Cleveland filmmaker and actor Darryl Dickenson, Kate Tucker, and Luke Tucker. Indie Gathering International Film Festival takes place in Hudson, Ohio August 17-19.  Bullet Train screens on August 18, 2012.

Director Miriam Bennett is an associate professor of Media Arts and Studies at Cuyahoga Community College. Bullet Train is one of seven Kate Tucker music videos she’s made with her Moving Studio production company. “We’ve filmed almost exclusively in Akron and when we’ve been elsewhere (like Seattle, New York, or Los Angeles) we’ve always had some sort of Northeast Ohio presence.” says Kate Tucker who was born in Akron, but has made her musical home in Seattle, Washington and now Nashville, Tennessee.  

Bullet Train’s entire cast and crew are from the Akron/Cleveland area and the shoot took place in areas in and around Akron, Ohio, including Suffield Township where Kate grew up with her brother Luke, who plays the hunter in the video. Akron’s Stagecoach Antiques is featured in the opening scene and the graveyard is in Quail Hollow State Park. “My brother and I spent countless hours exploring the trails of Quail Hollow, located just across the street from our childhood home. I was so excited when I convinced him to play a role in the video.  I think being in a familiar surrounding made it more comfortable for all of us, as opposed to being on a movie set.”

The song Bullet Train is from Kate Tucker’s White Horses LP released on Red Valise Recordings.  Steph Mukenyi Wahome will be representing Moving Studio at the screening on August 18.  Kate Tucker and Miriam Bennett are available for interviews via mstudioproductions@gmail.com or redvaliserecordings@gmail.com.

The summer sun is hot and heavy here in Nashville, so we’ve been spending most of our time underground, writing new songs and escaping the heat.

We’ll be surfacing for a few shows coming up. This Saturday July 28 we’ll be at The Rutledge for the Tennesee Fire Educators Association benefit. On September 8, I’ll be playing a special stripped down set at the 5 Spot with the Magnolia Sons and we’re super excited to be part of the East Nashville Music Festival on September 15. More info at facebook.com/katetuckermusic

If you haven’t heard my latest release, Ghost of Something Newyou can always take a free listen at bandcamp. If you like what you hear, you can get yourself a copy of the deluxe version at Sonic BoomGrimeys, or Square Records or order online at amazon and if you really want to geek out, you can read a little feature American Songwriter did on the song, “Revolution.”  

“Revolution” has been getting some radio love thanks to the good folks at Nashville’s Lightning 100 and of course my fave hometown station, Akron’s 91.3 The Summit.  If you live in either city, please take a moment to tune in and kindly request more Kate Tucker. It makes a difference!
