Blurring the line between documentary and music video is Crime Cutz, a 4-part short doc premiering at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. The 17-minute film was edited by Andrew Doga of bicoastal Union, with additional editorial by Union’s Eric Argiro and Adriana Machado. The project comes from New York synthpop duo Holy Ghost! and features four real life characters who appear in a series of music videos. Each individual’s story is told against the backdrop of a different song, the meaning of which is explored by the subjects themselves.

Crime Cutz was a unique project, where we tried to marry together two normally distinct (and somewhat disparate) forms of filmmaking,” Doga explained. “By blending together the very real-life documentary approach with the more stylized and conceived music video genre, I think we ended up creating something kind of dream-like and surreal that’s still grounded in real peoples’ lives.”
