From Indiewire:

Gravitas Ventures has acquired former Indiewire Project of the Day “Thank You A Lot,” writer-director Matt Muir’s film set in the Austin music scene (sorry, Terrence Malick, some people just work more quickly). The film, which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, will see a Video On Demand release in June 2014.

“Thank You A Lot” concerns a small-time music manager (Blake DeLong) on the verge of losing his job. His last ditch-effort: sign a reclusive country music singer – his father (real life country music singer James Hand playing a fictional version of himself).
