WELCOME TO THE JACK NORTON FANSITE

IMG_5192This is a fansite dedicated to the films, music, writing and many projects of artist Jack Norton: an avant-garde filmmaker and musician based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

His debut feature length film Jug Band Hokum follows the eccentric lives of jug band musicians competing for a broken waffle iron in the Annual Minneapolis Battle of the Jug Bands. Hailed by critics as “wildly fun…a real-life version of Christopher Guest’s A Mighty Wind with dashes of Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers“, the documentary is currently touring to art houses and film festivals worldwide.

Norton is frequently releasing a series of “cinepoems” (short experimental art films) and is currently shooting a feature length narrative film, set for a late 2016 release.

Updating this site is a labor of love, and I will try to post news, screenings and release info on his various projects, often – so please visit again soon.

ABOUT ME AND THIS PAGE

My name is Will and I live in Brooklyn, New York. I met Jack at a screening of a short film he directed and immediately fell in love with his work. I asked if there was anything I could do to help spread the word and hence this site (and it’s related social medias) was born.

Jack only posts updates at http://twitter.com/filmusichaos – he does not contribute to this page. To the best of my knowledge that is the only social media he is active on. He dissolved his official website and I merged most of its content within this page.

He has given me his approval, but is not connected with this fansite and its related social medias. I run fansite social medias at: http://facebook.com/JackNortonFilm, http://twitter.com/JackNortonFilm and http://instagram.com/JackNortonFilm.

I love to connect with others that like his work, my email is: filmusichaos@gmail.com.

THE LATEST VIDEOS FROM JACK

Jack directed (and appears for about two seconds) in this music video for the song “We’re All A Rainbow Together” from the family folk album, You Make My Happy by his duo Jack and Kitty. He directed, filmed and edited. The tune was written by Kitty Norton.

JN just unexpectedly released a “social media horror short film” called STATUS UPDATE. By far his most aggressive and strange work (in my opinion). I loved it but I’m sure many will find it difficult to get through. Watch it now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4HeuQZCHlY and tell me what you think!

Jack directed (and stars in) this music video for the song “Waiting At The End Of The Line” from the Jack & Kitty album, Our Secret Song. Jack directed, filmed and edited. The tune was written by Jack & Kitty Norton.
