West Seattle filmmaker Jamie Burton Chamberlin has big news – his feature film featuring Duff McKagan’s Loaded is almost done. The video above is from an interview in which the project is discussed by McKagan himself, whose most recent star turn was as Seafair Torchlight Parade Grand Marshal. Before that, the film was shot in a variety of places around the area, including West Seattle venues such as Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) and West 5 (where we covered the wrap of filming last September – here’s that story), along with scenic spots like Alki.
Chamberlin says the film, “The Taking,” will “be released in episodes; a total of 10 vignettes/music videos that will tell a tale of totally bizarre adventures, imprisoned band members, and kids’ size ice cream cones. The series begins Fall 2012. There are numerous cameos in the film including: Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney of Alice in Chains, former Guns ‘n’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, Steve Jones of Sex Pistols, and Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead.” Chamberlin is producer and director for “The Taking,” and promises more news soon on exactly where you’ll find the vignettes when they start rolling out.
