Lynn Shelton on $5 Cover, Seattle

Director Lynn Shelton (Humpday) leads us through the creative process behind $5 Cover: Seattle, the rocking MTV multiplatform musical series inaugurated last year with Craig Brewer’s look at the music of Memphis. Featuring thirteen up and coming bands playing themselves, the project offers an improvised, immersive look at one wild weekend in Seattle. From lovin’ to brawlin’, from pop to punk, this is real life for working musicians.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
