For those of you who've been dying to get a look at what Nigel Godrich's show From The Basement is like, your time has finally come. Starting on September 30th, it will be a part of the Independent Film Channel's Fall lineup.
It's part of a block of shows called Automat, and will be aired on Tuesday nights during prime time. Automat will feature shortform content (because none of us can pay attention anymore) like the anime piece Hell Girl, and pieces that are created by the Independent Film Channel's Media Lab. It's all part of an attempt to cater to an indie aesthetic, which seems to find a home of some purity with the Independent Film Channel.
"We've always been known as the place to go for independent film, and Automat goes beyond that. We're looking at Automat as a showcase for indie culture, whether that's comedy or music or anime," said Jennifer Caserta when speaking The Hollywood Reporter. She's the Executive Vice President and Genral Manager of the Independent Film Channel.
From The Basement comes out of the BBC's Maida Vale Studios in London, and features live performances of artists performing without an audience or host. It's just the performance(s) on each episode. They also score high on the production value scale with the use of high-definition film and ananlogue sound recording.
