Evan Jacobs (Orange County Scenester – director)
SPB: Who is your favorite band discovered in the process of filming Orange County Scenester?
Jacobs: Since I was making a memoir on a scene of bands that I was, in many ways, intimately involved with, there wasn't that a band that I discovered during the making of the film.
What I did discover was, after reviewing and reviewing tapes, I could see where some of the iconic pictures had been taken on some of the albums I listened to. Or, I was able
to see a show that had been talked about for years but I was not there to witness. Lastly, as the process of discovery continued, I would go through footage I had seen previously. As I watched it, my mind would be reminded of things that I had heard happened before or after the show I was watching. It might even be something happening on screen simultaneously that wasn't captured on camera. So I would watch a show with a completely different perspective because I understood better why what I was seeing on screen was happening.
