Chapter 1 - This Wouldn’t Be The First Time
Written by Dean Marino
Everybody converges upon Chemical Sound on Sunday to start the recording process. Dean teaches the others the structure of his song. Jay and Dean get things ready in the booth and they lay down their first track. Before work can start on the second song, NOVELS take time to fulfill their first media request.

NOVELS The Movie takes you inside a 24 hour marathon recording session at Chemical Sound with five of Canada’s top young pop musicians. Tokyo Police Club's Graham Wright, Will Currie of Will Currie and The Country French, and Luke Lalonde of Born Ruffians team up with Dean Marino of Tin Star Orphans and Jason Sadlowski of Chemical Sound to write, collaborate and record a 5 song EP in one day.

Heavily influenced by Wilco: I Am Trying To Break Your Heart and 6015 Willow, filmmaker Wade Vroom takes you through this unique creative process. Watch and listen as each musicians’ song evolves from an acoustic pitch to the other NOVELS members, into a fully realized collaborative recording.

Directed & Edited by Wade Vroom
