About the Movie
Part live action, part surreal animation, POP MEETS THE VOID is a dark comedy about an unhinged musician preoccupied with daydreams of (imaginary) massive success as he struggles to release his first album after 15 years of recording songs alone. As he finally appears to have made a breakthrough after countless hours of work, his laptop dies and he struggles to find a way to fix it. His only option seems to be selling his soul to the devil. Winner of Best Feature Film at the Lower East Side Film Festival, POP MEETS THE VOID features popular NYC comedians Sarah Tollemache, Jordan Carlos, and Alexis Pereira, as well as legendary experimental filmmaker Bill Morrison, in supporting roles alongside writer/director/musician/star William Cusick.
Funny, magical, musical
Caught this film at the Queens Film Fest, and it was a beautiful and enjoyable ride through the artistic process. Pop Meets the Void explores what it means to pursue your craft (in this case music) and the alternative realities of a musician by turns struggling, succeeding, and well, just working. Compellingly acted by William Cusick (who also wrote and directed the film) along with a talented supporting cast, and glittering with mesmerizing special effects. This musical journey is by turns laugh-out-load funny, magical, and tragic. Enter the void for a good time!
THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD!
Writer/Director/Composer/Star William Cusick makes his feature film debut with this fantastical and funny tale of a musician on the cusp of releasing his first album after years of writing and recording alone. Using a combination of live-action and animation, Cusick successfully captures the fears and doubts that make an artist. Cusick proves to be a visionary behind the camera and an unlikely and immensely talented star in front of it. Experience this film!
