SXSW Q&A: John Mellencamp Doc Director Kurt Markus
Sought-after still photographer segues to Super 8 for 'It's About You,' chronicling Mellencamp's T-Bone Burnett-produced 2009 album 'No Better than This.'
Kurt Markus may have 35 years of experience behind a camera, but when an old friend called one day to ask if he was interested in collaborating on a film, Markus wondered if he was the right man for the job. Sure, he’s one of the most sought after still photographers in the world, regularly winning awards for his work in everything form Vanity Fair to Vogue and Rolling Stone. But helming a feature-length documentary without any prior experience? It sounded a little too risky, even for an adventurous spirit like the Montana-based Markus.
