San Francisco-based singer/songwriter Goh Nakamura built a following for himself via YouTube and Twitter, a social media musician if you will. So, it's only appropriate that SURROGATE VALENTINE (taking its title from the title of one of Nakamura's own songs) became a project formed, created, and eventually distributed over the Internet between the artist-turned-actor and writer/director Dave Boyle.

I sat down with Boyle and Nakamura to discuss the unique genesis of the film, the choices behind making reel life based on Nakamura's real life and talents, some of the duo's favorite music films, and more!
