Alexandria, VA, April 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Chart-topping musical artist and Los Angeles-based filmmaker Michael C. Perry today announced that his film “Empty Box of Wine” has been nominated in the category “Best Music Video” for the upcoming Northern Virginia International Film Festival. Perry is the lead singer in Jour Majesty, who last year rose to #2 on the indie folk charts; his entry into the film festival accompanies the upcoming Jour Majesty album, Empty Box of Wine.
This lushly animated film follows the romantic complications of two musicians as their troubles unfold against the rain-slicked streets of San Francisco. Inspired by a chance meeting in a hotel lobby that stirred up one of Perry’s favorite lines from Hemingway’s classic A Moveable Feast, “She was very pretty with a face fresh as a newly minted coin if they minted coins in smooth flesh with rain-freshened skin, and her hair black as a crow's wing and cut sharply and diagonally across her cheek,” the film captures the spirit of San Francisco as seen through Perry’s eyes that day: wet, ephemeral and very much alive. Famed UK music journalist Alex Faulkner has compared Jour Majesty’s music to the “rootsy Americana” of The Band as well as more modern artists, such as Ryan Adams.
The organic result of Perry’s successful commercial career in film and audio engineering, combined with his band Jour Majesty’s many recent successes, “Empty Box of Wine” sparks a captivating conversation about the fleeting infatuations that compose the days, months and years of our lives. The Northern Virginia International Film Festival will run April 21st through the 30th; screenings will be held at the Angelika Film Center in Fairfax and the State Theatre in Falls Church.
