    Greyhounds is a blues-groove band based out of Austin, TX, that tour relentlessly around the country. Upon hearing them for the first time, PIQTU fell in love with their funky, gritty, blues-y sound. Our first major documentary project was this twenty-eight minute film covering a segment of the Greyhounds' career: a moment in time when the band had added two new members, bringing the total up to four. Having been a three-piece up until that point, it was an exciting new time, full of creativity and improvisation. Armed with only two cameras, a multitrack recording rig, and a dog, We packed up the truck and traveled the south-eastern U.S. following them in the spring of 2006. Although this was a non-paying gig, it was certainly a highlight in our career.
