Video: ‘The Gold Sparrow’ (ftr. Oliver Future)


File under: Good ideas with legs. The L.A. band Oliver Future met its demise more than three years ago, and the song “The Gold Sparrow” appeared on their 2010 album “In Event of Moon Disaster.” Originally intended to be a music video for the song, “The Gold Sparrow” grew and grew and grew – until now, as a 13-minute short film scored by Oliver Future’s brother tandem, Noah and Joshua Lit, it has been featured in more than a dozen film festivals and won five awards. It’s directed by Daniel Stessen, who’s done music videos for Spirit Animal, Chris Garneau, Son of Stan and others, and animated by Michael Garza. The lesson here is, don’t see everything in black and white.
