It’s 2011 and twentyfive plan to write, record then release a fresh song every two weeks of the year.

twentyfive are two unknown, indie songwriters in a bare-bones studio in the industrial West of Melbourne - Australia’s music capital. They have a studio set-up which is a piece of Melbourne history - a 1957 train carriage, lovingly restored, fitted out with a Tiki Bar.

Cath loves pop, Nick loves garage rock. She wants jazz flute, he wants a dirty guitar. Is this ever going to work, are they totally deluded, is it an impossible goal? Will anyone even care or notice in the century of information and product overload? This is not reality TV, it’s not a competition, it’s real musicians doing their own thing. And we’ve had to wait five years to see the result!

The Ballad of the Dreadnought
Documentary• 53 min

The Ballad of the Dreadnought traces the rise of the Martin Dreadnought from selling only a few dozen guitars for its first 20 years to becoming the musical companion played in almost every musical genre in every corner of the world. For 100 years, the Martin Dreadnought has stood the test of time and survived endlessly evolving musical tastes becoming the musical companion for countless artists throughout music’s history. From Crosby, Stills and Nash on stage for the first time together at Woodstock with a D-45 to Seth Avett discovering countless songs waiting inside his Martin D-35, these artists will take you along as they lovingly recall moments where they stood proudly alongside their trusted Martin Dreadnoughts.

The story told in Ballad of the Dreadnought is the story of milestones in America’s music; how the Dreadnought helped create bluegrass, how it was an integral to folk and country, how it was played on one of the first rock and roll recordings, how it inspired generations of players and music. You’ll learn that the Dreadnought is a common link in a long chain going back to the twenties and the very birth of the music industry. The character of American music owes much to the Dreadnought.
