During this year's Milwaukee film festival, a series of shorts made by Milwaukeeans called The Milwaukee Show screened at The Oriental. One of those shorts was a music video for the Milwaukee band Altos aka Group Of The Altos directed by Sean Williamson. Sean Williamson will be debuting his first feature film called Heavy Hands at The Oriental on December 13 at 7pm. Williamson used Kickstarter to raised the money to complete his film.
Heavy Hands follows Anti-hero Jimmy Lee as he deals with the repercussions of a thoughtless and selfish act. Set in a harsh country landscape, Heavy Hands is a scary, funny and sexy picture filmed in Wisconsin, New York, Kansas and Colombia on super 8mm stock.
Here is a teaser from Heavy Hands featuring music from Milawukee's Hello Death.
Check out the video he directed for Altos' song "Sing (For Trouble)", which is a nominee for best video for the 2012 RadioMilwaukee Music Awards.
