'Thank You A Lot'

TOH! has scored an exclusive clip to SXSW premiere "Thank You A Lot," centering on a struggling Austin music manager who is facing the possibility of losing his job unless he signs with his reclusive country music father (played by real-life underground country star James Hand). Check it out, below.

The film has its world premiere in the narrative spotlight section at South By on March 7, the opening day of the fest. It's written and directed by Austin filmmaker Matt Muir, and produced by Chris Ohlson ("Kumiko the Treasure Hunter").  

Here's the official synopsis:

Jack Hand is a two-bit hustler and bottom-rung music manager with a questionable reputation. His dwindling social circle is made up of his only remaining clients; a hip-hop artist and an indie rock band. Jack's next best asset is his talented but estranged musician father, James Hand, a highly respected and reclusive songwriter whose legacy goes a long way in a music town like Austin. Jack is forced by his management company to sign his musician father to a management deal or lose his job and threaten the livelihood of his only friends. Jack hustles his way through a vibrant and diverse music scene as he struggles to keep his clients and create a bond with his estranged father.
