Powered by Audioscrobbler™1) Filmmaker is a post-punk, darkwave project from Medellin, Colombia.

Colombian producer, Faunes Efe, stands behind a slew of prolific albums and EP’s released under the Filmmaker project, quickly building a cult following amongst those with an affinity for dystopian electronics steeped in an alluring, seductive darkness. From earlier self-released works such as ‘Visceral’, a 10-track full length work modestly described in Efe’s own words as the “First occult-orientated soundtrack from an experimental lost film”, to the 808-shots of ‘Nocturnal’ and later with the grainy, low-fi electro of ‘Wetwork’. Each successive release proves Efe’s capacity to execute productions of magnitude across the electronic spectrum, yielding body moving music from a small arsenal of honed hardware.

Filmmaker’s material derives from an unadulterated exploration of the sonic realms, utilising multiple formats and artistic mediums; documented through a series of original cover artworks and short films created by Efe. In the space of a year since its inception, Efe began touring as a live artist under the Filmmaker project, from his home-base in Medellin, to clubs and spaces throughout the Americas and Europe. 2019 became a defining period for Efe’s musical trajectory, with the release of the acclaimed ‘The Love Market’ LP on Berlin-based Detriti Records and later landing on esteemed UK label, Opal Tapes with his 6-track ‘Unregulated’ EP, followed by the 7-track dark wave masterclass ‘Noir Times’ EP on Valencia-based, HC Records.

2) Filmmaker is a Canadian foursome that came together quickly in the wake of the breakup of bassist Michael Dawson and drummer Troy Bjorndal's band.

The addition of vocalist/guitarist Carl Johnson and guitarist Andrew Chevrier was integral to the group's inception. Johnson's melodic singing coupled with Dawson's lyrics allowed the Saskatchewan-based band to become a Western Canadian cult favorite.

They gained notoriety through the MP3.com website, which lead to the release of a 2001 EP Break This Fall. In 2002, with Tristan Helgason (Ghosts of Modern Man/Four Hundred Strong) took over on the kit and they stepped into the studio with producer Blair Calibaba (Gob/Sum 41/By A Thread/Champion) to record a full-length album. An Invitation to an Accident appeared in September 2002 on Farway Records.

Tristan now plays in Ghosts of Modern Man while Carl Johnson and Mike Dawson have gone on to play in National Frost and Library Voices.
