ASBURY PARK, NJ -- TAPintoTV spoke with filmmakers Jeff Auer and Alex Emanuel about their latest release, The Incoherents, which won “Best Home Grown Feature” at the 2019 Garden State Film Festival and will be shown this weekend at the Soho International Film Festival.
The Incoherents is a dramatic-comedy feature film about a group of 40-something friends that decide to reunite their garage band and rekindle the lost rock-and-roll dreams of their past. The film was shot in locations across New York and New Jersey.
"Making film is a crazy, incredible process," said Actor/Writer/Producer Jeff Auer. "I've got a couple of kids--making film is way harder than raising children,” he said. “It's an incredible experience, it's like nothing else."
"I played in bands for years, for me, it was a marriage of two things that I love, acting and music,” said Actor/Producer/Musician Alex Emanuel. “Then to produce this thing, and make it ourselves, I mean, that's kind of the dream."
“Acting is an extremely hard profession,” said Auer, who has also appeared in shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Blue Bloods. “There’s mostly downs, and you get the occasional up that keeps you going,” he said. “But music--you can always come home to music and it’s always there.”
The Incoherents is “not just about rock-and-roll,” said Emanuel. “It's about middle age--it's about people doing what they want to do in life.”
The film is now an official selection of the Soho International Film Festival and will be shown on Saturday, June 22 at the Village East Cinema in Manhattan’s East Village.
