Cinema Versa Award Best Documentary – Leeds International Film festival 2011

Sound it Out is a loving portrait of a the last remaining independent record store in Teeside, with over 500 independent record shops closing their doors in the last five years, director Jeanie Finlay wanted to capture the shop for posterity and as a gift for everyone, including herself, who used to shop there. Following a hugely successful theatrical run, Dogwoof is proud release Sound it Out.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

Sound It Out Records is run by the dryly philosophical Tom Butchart, whose wealth of knowledge helps his customers to find the song they’ve just heard in the pub or to track down that elusive rare vinyl they need to add to their collection.

The film follows a number of the shop’s long standing customers and takes us into their worlds of music, from the Makina boys and the devout Status Quo fan to the presenters of dance music 
radio show run from a garden shed in Billingham. Sound It Out Records stocks all types of music from Abba to Zappa, and everything in-between (even the occasional classical piece too), however Tom comments, “I tend to sell a lot of hard music, but it’s a hard area.”

Tom provides the kind of personal touch that you won't find on the high street and the shop also plays host to live performances from regional artists and bands.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives. High Fidelity with a Northern Accent
