Announced late last year, the project as Perry called it will be a mix of items tossed into a blender. Putting together the members of Pavement, Zoe Lister-Jones, Michael Esper and Kathryn Gallagher, the behind the line crew folk include cinematography Robert Kolodny and editor Robert Greene. Perry first visited Park City for Listen Up Philip in 2014.
