The Making of UNBOUND: A★INSTAMINISERIES

preparing to shoot our opening and closing episodes on location at Union Hall, Brooklyn, NY, Fall 2015

It has been two years since UNBOUND first premiered to quite a bit of fan and press interest. Since then, the episodes have been viewed tens - if not hundreds - of thousands of times across various platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, at South by Southwest, and, of course, on Instagram, where it had it's initial run.

Like the music that inspired UNBOUND, the series always raised more questions than it answered and as filmmakers we sought to let those questions linger - and our audience really seemed to prefer it that way as well.

That said, I (and I assume we all) still receive a lot of questions from people about how it all came together, what it was like working on such an interesting project for such an important release, etc. With the passage of time it is now a bit easier for me (and even fun) to pull back the curtain a little bit to reveal some of the creative process, which I will be doing here over the coming weeks. No spoilers, no explanations of the work, but some ephemera and insight into the development of UNBOUND. This will take the form of pages from the treatment and script, photos, notes and other recollections. The first installment will be tomorrow, February 26, at 8PM ET.

Check back throughout the coming month or so and please send along your thoughts and comments. One of the highlights of this project was the interaction and dialogue with the audience and I hope that continues.

Thanks and enjoy,

Lawrence Peryer
Producer, UNBOUND: A★INSTAMINISERIES
