Air Guitar Film Mimes Musical Message

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One rockin’ documementary is putting some serious meaning to the fake fun of air guitar.

Air Guitar Nation comes out on DVD today (Aug. 28), and the film follows U.S. Air Guitar Championships competitors C- Diddy and Bjorn Turoque as they shred their way through the wacky world of air guitar.

Producers Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz say there’s some real inspiration behind the on-stage perspiration.

Cutforth says, “It’s like When We Were Kings meets Spinal Tap. There’s a cartoonish quality, but by the end you get to know these people and understand what air guitar means to them.”

Lipsitz adds, “It’s kind of like a mainstream sports movie, like Miracle. We’ve always had an affinity with the quirky underdog story.”

But after one musical miming moment, don’t expect to catch Cutforth cutting loose on stage anytime soon.

He says, “It’s amazing how quickly you run out of moves. Then it sort of becomes a lesson in crippling embarrassment.”
