THE REAL WILL WOOD
DANGER BABY FILMS PRESENTS:
"A SHOW EXPERIENCE UNLIKE ANY OTHER
...WILL FOREVER GO DOWN IN HISTORY"
"A SHOW EXPERIENCE UNLIKE ANY OTHER... EVERYONE WHO WAS THERE REALIZED JUST HOW LUCKY WE WERE TO BE IN ATTENDANCE"
"by the end of the show I think we discovered that the real Will Wood was now a part of all of us. If that makes sense, does it? I can’t explain it any other way."
"THIS SHOW WILL FOREVER GO DOWN IN HISTORY"
-DYING SCENE MAGAZINE
"Is Will Wood a man, or is he an idea? Either way, he’s a stunning performer... Without him, whoever the real Will Wood is, New Jersey loses its charm, its animosity, and its rules-out-the-window mentality."
"This is work that makes no excuses, and the performances will surprise and shock you."
-NEW NOISE MAGAZINE
"We have never done a film review on this site... I knew I had stumbled onto something vastly different from anything else I’ve seen... watch it."
"I’m not even going to get into describing it... it won’t live up to what it actually is when you finally do see it."
-DENTAL RECORDS MUSIC NEWS
"Will Wood is undoubtedly one of the most musically talented people in his generation... "
"The Real Will Wood is hilarious. He is witty, and dark, and sad, and vulnerable, and a musical genius. The Real Will Wood is anything and everyone."
"Frantic, frenetic... A crazy, creative genius... Always trippy and rarely real."
WHO IS THE REAL WILL WOOD?
Critics and fans alike have argued over and attempted to decipher the notoriously eccentric singer-songwriter Will Wood for years, and in response, the artist and his comedic cohort Chris Dunne have crafted The Real Will Wood. Part documentary, part concert film, part side-splitting surrealist head-trip; The Real Will Wood is bigger than the sum of its parts. And its parts are pretty big.
Danger Baby Films present critically-acclaimed sold-out performances by Will Wood & the Tapeworms alongside the story of the wildly inept fictionalized versions of the film company and their effort to make the very film you're watching. With wild and surprisingly powerful original music by Will Wood that critics have hailed as "genius" and "a show experience unlike any other," and genre (and mind) bending humor; The Real Will Wood asks more questions than it answers. Who is the Real Will Wood? Who are any of us, really? What on earth am I watching?
MEET THE TAPEWORMS
Will Wood first appeared in the independent music scene just a few short years ago, and has since then amassed a feverish cult following around the country. Lead by Wood on piano and vocals, the Tapeworms have included many musicians, but the core four-piece best known are Matthew Berger (Saxophone) Vater Boris (Bass) Mike Bottiglieri (Guitar) and Mario Conte (Drums) .
Since 2015, Will Wood & the Tapeworms have played alongside and recorded with members of internationally touring acts (including Foxy Shazam, Dillinger Escape Plan, Frnkiero andthe Cellabration, Gogol Bordello, Man Man, & more) and are currently preparing to record a new studio album, featuring music produced by multi-platinum producer Matt Squire. (Panic! at the Disco, Ariana Grande, One Direction, The Used, All Time Low)
NEED TO KNOW MORE?
Currently un-premiered and without distribution, The Real Will Wood was produced with ticket sales to the shows seen in the film, and part of a crowdfunding campaign that raised nearly $8K in a few weeks to produce vinyl records and was featured on Indiegogo for its popularity and quick success.
Having only been screened once at an intimate gathering of crew, family, and super-fans, The Real Will Wood is currently submitting to festivals and looking for friends.
