One of My Kind Documentary | Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band

Having seen Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band a couple of times over the past few years, I’m inclined to see One of My Kind: The Story of the Mystic Valley Band. At this point, the conversations and interplay between the band members may be just as interesting as the music. Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band - One of My Kind

One of My Kind: The Story of the Mystic Valley Band is a full length documentary feature by Philip Schaffart. Schaffart was actually hired by Oberst to tune guitars, but wound up toting a video camera as well as the band recorded their 2008 self-titled album in Mexico.

Per Schaffart on the Team Love website (TeamLove is releasing the film):

“Something was happening between the six members of the band musically that was effortless and natural in a way I had not seen before;” Phil continues: “In Texas we started thinking that the footage could be turned into a documentary film.” Phil returned to Omaha later and enlisted the help of the H Minus Production team and after many grueling hours in the edit suite, a film was born.”

Order information can be found at the Team Love Shop. The film will be released in May.
