Iron & Wine - 'Dreamers and Makers are my Favorite People - A Short Film'
Taken by the “If you build it, they will come” story of the Jerry Run Summer Theater, Iron & Wine felt the remote location was the perfect setting to film a concert in celebration of 'Archive Series Volume No. 1.' Here, a batch of songs that had never been performed live was presented for the first time to an audience of fans and music lovers, many of who had never heard of Iron & Wine.
'Dreamers and Makers are my Favorite People' looks back to Iron & Wine’s earliest moments and shares the story of the musical community fostered by Jerry Run Theater. Through live footage, interviews, and photos the viewer is treated to a rare glimpse into the past.

When Iron & Wine first announced the new vault-exploring compilation album Archive Series Volume No. 1, the songwriter known as Sam Beam also promised that a short film called Dreamers and Makers Are My Favorite People would be on the way soon. Now that the album has been out for a few weeks, the film has also arrived.
The half-hour film focuses on Iron & Wine's performance at West Virginia's rural Jerry Run Theater, where Beam played a solo set of songs from the compilation.
This intimate performance footage is intercut with interviews with the man himself, as he discusses the origins of his music career and how he came to make the comp's hushed four-track recordings. There's also some background information about the unique venue.
