Once again working with Los Angeles based design firm Riot Structure (who provided the graphic and web design), we coded out and built the site for this documentary about drummer Patty Schemel. “Hit So Hard” Debuts at this year’s SXSW – check the site for additional screening dates and more information.
Hit So Hard s a pull-no-punches portrait of the hell-and-back life of Patty Schemel, the hard-hitting drummer of Courtney Love’s seminal rock band ‘Hole’ during its peak years. As a young girl who always knew she was ‘different’ from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of ‘Rolling Stone.’ But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. A true survivor of what we now know was the disaffected ‘slacker’ generation, Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, embraced by the dark side. An unprecedented and unflinching inside look at one of the 90s most crucial and controversial groups.
