As a company that specializes in creating & delivering cutting edge music content, Pulse is always keen to develop new ways to reach these audiences direct via new digital platforms and innovation.
The first two Pulse titles available through Screenburn are:
There Are No Innocent Bystanders:
Arguably one of the most significant bands of the last decade, The Libertines split up in 2004, to the enormous disappointment of a fiercely loyal fan base. This film tracks the bands decision to reunite in 2010 and follows their journey through rehearsals to perform at Reading and Leeds festivals. Director and close friend of the band Roger Sargent attains unparalleled access to the band, gaining personal and emotional insight into their complex relationships. YouTube Link
Werewolves Across America:
Werewolves Across America is a portrait of modern youth culture by directors D.A.R.Y.L. (Katy Perry – Part Of Me) The film stars Phosphorescent, Deer Tick, The Shivers and nomadic folk cult icon Viking Moses, who guides us through the world of the US DIY music scene. With him we meet a variety of characters - a young Lutheran priest, a Manhattan real estate agent and an ex-drug addict from Florida. All have chosen to reject the American Dream in search of something else - but what are they seeking and at what cost? YouTube Link
