Director Aaron Gum, who also happens to be a member of InDreama, emailed to say that his upcoming feature film, “Bent Over Neal,” is loaded with local star talent of the musical variety.
“(It) features an eclectic blend of Nebraska actors, bands and musicians, including onscreen performances by Bloodcow & Eli Mardock and tons of local music from Civic Minded, InDreama, Rock Paper Dynamite, Adam Weaver and the Ghosts, Scott Severin, The Big Deep, Jeremy Starkel, Edge Of Arbor, and Strange Attractors…”
The film’s soundtrack will be debuted at a concert at The Waiting Room Oct. 24 featuring eight of the bands represented on the album. That’s fine, but what about the movie itself?
“Our first two Omaha film screenings sold out in advance, but we have added another Omaha date October 30 at Akasarben,” Gum said. “Our Lincoln film premiere and soundtrack concert will be October 26 at Vega.”
Check out the film’s trailer below:
