James Marcus Haney is only 27 yet he has two feature films under his belt, both of which will be shown as part of this weekend’s Mountainfilm festival. But his road to success was not a traditional one. The selection of two music films at the festival wasn't either.
Marcus Haney was a senior in college at the University of Southern California. The lineup for Coachella in 2010 was full of big names. She and Him. Atoms for Peace. Jay-Z. Marcus was a broke college student. All of his friends were going, and so was his crush. He had to go.
