“Stages” trailer – Ian Cooke
Catch a glimpse of “Stages” in this preview from producers Ray Trout and Ian O’Dougherty. Ian Cooke and 303 Choir meet, rehearse, and perform together in Stages, a 23-minute doc about musical collaboration. In this short doc, produced by Ray Trout and Ian O’Dougherty, 303 Choir (local singers aged 9 to 16) sing harmony with local cellist and songwriter Ian Cooke on his post-apocalyptic song “Rover” from his most recent album ‘Fortitude.’ Trout, a local media producer, and O’Dougherty, a local musician (Ian Cooke, Uphollow, Tauntaun, Eolian) and video editor, have been producing this doc since early 2012 with no budget, and will be offering downloads to try to fund more Stages docs.
