Singles Archives #5: Mark Arm Letter



From the archives, here’s the note that Mudhoney’s Mark Arm left for Cameron after looking around the Singles production office. This ultimately led to Mudhoney’s “Overblown”. Much more on that later as Vinyl Films preps the Singles Deluxe Soundtrack release…

Singles Archives #4: Filming Locations – Then and Now



I thought we’d revisit a feature I did in 2012 on the Singles Seattle filming locations: Then and Now…

Since I live in Seattle, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the filming locations and how they look now. I’ve included stills from the movie along with recent pictures that I’ve taken. It’s crazy how many locations are gone or completely changed, while others have stood the test of time. We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.


  • The Coryell Court apartment building is located at 1820 E. Thomas Ave on the corner of 19th and E. Thomas Ave in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.  Please remember that people live there, so you’ll want to respect their privacy if you stop by.

Tidbit: The fountain was created out of styrofoam for the film and the building is only two stories, so there’s not actually an elevator.  In reality, Cliff’s apartment was in the laundry room and storage area (located in the basement of the apartment complex).

Singles Archives #3: Rolling Stone Diary



As we continue to celebrate the release of Singles on Blu-ray, today’s archives look back at Cameron’s Rolling Stone diary during the making of Singles. Enjoy!

Making the Scene
A Filmmakers Diary

“Andy’s dead,” the voice said flatly. It sounded so unlike my old friend Kelly. This dispassionate monotone on the answering machine. Kelly was one of the most excitable guys I knew. In recent years he’d become a rock manager, guiding the career of a fledgling Seattle band named Mother Love Bone. Its lead singer and frontman, Andy Wood, had been successfully battling a nagging heroin problem. But the night before Wood was to meet his boyhood idols Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of Kiss, he’d scored some deadly heroin on the street. They found him comatose in his apartment, his favorite T-shirt mysteriously ripped to pieces in the washer. After several days on a life-support machine, Andy Wood slipped away. “I’m still at the hospital,” Kelly said with a sad sigh. “I’ll be at home later.”

My wife and I stared at the answering machine. Within a few minutes, we’d psychoanalyzed Kelly’s voice. He was in trouble. No, worse, he was a ticking time bomb. He needed help. He needed friendship. We got in the car and drove to his house – immediately.
